Our local property manager, Amado, will meet you at the property when you arrive and is available to help with any issues that arrive during your stay. He is also an excellent source of information about Oaxaca. While we will most likely not be in Oaxaca when you are there, we are always available by phone or e-mail.

Year Purchased: 2015
About: The property is owned by two friends, Robert and Paul. Robert grew up in New York, studied linguistics and anthropology in Chicago and Berkeley and has lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico for 15 years. With long term interests in traditional cultures and crafts, Robert fell in love with Oaxaca the first time he visited and has returned multiple times since. He is currently involved in a project called 'Colores de Oaxaca' that works with local textile artists to expand knowledge of the textile traditions of the region and to take steps to assure the this traditional knowledge is kept alive. He is also working on the development of a program to support young, indigenous people from the region in their exploration of what it means to be indigenous in the 21st Century and how they can access and explore the opportunities that modern society offers while remaining grounded in and connected to their native cultures and communities. Paul grew up on a farm in South Texas and currently lives on the property next door which was settled by his ancestors in the mid 19th Century. His current focus when in the US is on visitation programs for women and families being held in the federal detention system. Like Robert, Paul has a lifelong interest in textiles and cultures.
Why Luis Jiménez Figueroa, Oaxaca, Oax., Mexico:
We were introduced to the casita when we rented it for two weeks on a recent visit to Oaxaca. We were just beginning to explore the possibility of purchasing a property in town and learned that the the house was for sale. We loved the quality of the space and the location, as well as the layout of the house, which allows for the comfortable hosting of guests, and decided to make an offer. We are excited that the casita is now our home base in Oaxaca and look forward to sharing it with others who come to visit this very special place.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house is unique because of its location in the old center, combined with the unique architecture that allows light and air into all parts of the house while also creating private, intimate spaces and separation from the neighbors. Also, each of the two main bedrooms has its own bathroom and roof deck and the office on the ground floor, which can be used as a third bedroom, has its own half bath and easy access to the internal garden. Thus the house can be shared by several individuals or couples, with good separation of space.
