Great location and beautiful space

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our 20 month old daughter and loved this home. The inside is beautifully decorated and well equipped with fans to keep you cool. It is separated from the street by a gate and the owners home (who were very respectful and quiet) and so was very peaceful. We also loved this location. Its a short walk to the Zocalo and very close to restaurants, shops and two parks. Our only complaint was that one of the toilets leaked which caused a musty smell.

Shabby Not Chic

  • 2 of 5

The only redeeming feature of this property was the location. It was very rustico and because it was so run down appeared to be dirty. The beds were uncomfortable. The linens were awful. And the house was just not outfitted for a comfortable stay. There was no hot water in the kitchen. Nor was there a toaster. The fridge was very difficult to open. There were very few electrical outlets and only one that would accept a three prong computer charger. The bathrooms do not have doors which was a bit unsettling as we were adults travelling together and sharing the space. We were told the proprietor was bilingual and would be able to help us with directions etc. She spoke no english at all. Also - the unit is in behind a home and does not have it's own bell. We had no way of knowing that we had guests outside the gate. This caused us problems on more than one occasion. Also - there is no light in the carport area from the street to the front door of the house. There is however a very large dog with a ferocious bark who greeted us every time we returned to the house.

So - we would not return to this property. Nor would we recommend this property to anyone ever. Definitely not our cup of tea.

LAMENTO LA INFORMACION QUE SU CONTACTO LES DIO.

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Really fantastic location in the Centro. private little patio which was nice. Parking available on the street in front of the house, but I did have to move my car several times because other people on the street seemed to "own" certain parking places. Otherwise, no complaints.

Wonderful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

Two couples stayed there for 11 days and it was perfect. On a no traffic street, very quiet, plenty of space, very comfortable. It's less than 10 minute walk from Santa Domingo Church, around the corner from Sanchez Pasqua market. Home is comfortable, has everything we needed plus. Owner responsive and helpful, but not on sight. We could happily have stayed much longer. Oaxaca is truly a magical city and this quiet home is a perfect location to adventure there. Highly recommend it
