Alma de mi Tierra offers 2 turn-key furnished apartments for rent that are attractively appointed and include a wide range of conveniences designed to meet the needs of vacationers to Oaxaca. The 2 apartments are next to each other and are a mirror image of each other. This listing and calendar is for Apartment #1.
Our apartments are centrally located in the heart of Oaxaca and just a 15 minute walk to the Zocolo. The Mercado de Merced with wonderful fruit, vegetables, and arm loads of fresh flowers, is just a short walk away! Our location provides convenient access to many Spanish language schools.
The property contains the apartments, our private home in the rear as well as Alma de Mi Tierra Cooking School.
Everyone shares the same access to the main street but each apartment has their own key to the main door as well as to the apartment. Our location also has a private rooftop terrace, beautiful plantings, and ample seating to enjoy the beautiful Oaxacan sunsets.
Our housekeeper is on property daily and comes to clean and change your linens once a week. Both innkeepers speak fluent English as well as Spanish and are always available in case you have any questions or problems.
Oaxaca offers an extraordinary array of concerts, live theater, lectures and famous art institutes. Classes are offered in painting, sculpture, weaving, dance, photography, and ceramics to name a few. There is a wonderful English language library nearby with a very large collection of books in English.
Rent with confidence knowing that you are located in a secure setting with the owners residing on the same property. With both of our furnished apartments we handle the details, including utilities, furniture, kitchen supplies and more -- so you can keep on track and focus on your priorities.

Friendly host, property as advertised
We spent five weeks here and found the apartment to be just what we wanted. It was quiet and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the rooftop deck in the evenings. Our host, William was extremely helpful prior to our arrival. We had planned to spend a week in Mexico City before visiting Oaxaca but a major earthquake forced us to go to Oaxaca a week early. William managed to find accommodations for us very nearby. William is an American who has lived with his wife in her hometown of Oaxaca for many years so they proved to be a great source of advice for everything from restaurants to where to get our laundry done. This was a very good experience and we would stay here again, were we to return to Oaxaca.
Loved staying with Nora and William
Our 1 bedroom apartment was beautiful and comfortable. We loved being able to cook, and took a class with Nora at her cooking school. The apartment was located close to La Marced Market, and a short walk to downtown – its close to everything ! Oaxaca is a beautiful city with a lot to see and do and close to other market towns. We loved being there - we have booked for March of 2018 ! A faulous place a great vacation and the rooftop deck is beautiful !
Sweet Garden Respite
My best friend and I just returned from a week stay in Oaxaca. We stayed with William and Nora in one of two apartments they rent to travelers and those taking tours and classes with Nora. Oaxaca is my favorite location to visit in the entire world, and the location and environment they provide within the city is absolutely perfect.
We spend our days reveling in the sights, sounds, tastes and culture of Oaxaca and it felt so welcoming and calm to reenter this oasis at day's end. You enter the front door of the home into a charming garden space. The apartment itself is clean, comfortable and VERY quiet. The beds are comfy, and the kitchen is adequately equipped. There is also a beautiful little rooftop garden patio as well. The location is great, within walking distance of the historic center of Oaxaca, and many other areas of interest.
But the best part of Alma de Mi Tierra, are the hosts, William and Nora, who were extremely genial and helpful in every way without being obtrusive. They gave us restaurant recommendations, (so fantastic), helped us to get laundry done, directions, etc., etc. They made us feel welcome and comfortable. I would love to return and do some cooking with Nora and learn even more about Oaxaca and it's warm, vibrant culture. I can't wait to return.
Exactly as pictured, in a quiet location that is an easy walk to all old city areas. Close to a market and the zocalo.
Our hosts were a wonderful help to us. They made suggestions and gave us a map to get oriented. Both William and Nora were very friendly and helpful. Nora is a guide and does a wonderful job with tours of local craft villages. She also offers cooking classes which we will make time for on our next trip.
Wonderful host! Very comfortable apartment and location.
We greatly enjoyed our stay in Oaxaca in part because of the comfort of this apartment: very quiet street, close to the center, and nice apartment with vernacular touches. Additional fun was access to the roof terrace and lime tree... The host provided all the necessary basics including drinking water. One discomfort for "spoiled newyorkers": low water pressure.
Thank you for your review! It was great to have met you both and we hope to have the pleasure to host you in the future.
As for the water pressure, being also from NY I know what you mean, but apart from high end hotels, very large cities and resort areas, the rest of Mexico still relies on gravity pressure. The tanks for your apartment are on the 3rd story, way higher than most of the homes in Oaxaca, and at that height gives more than enough pressure for everyday use, 9.9 psi from tank to shower-head to be exact. It's not the 30 -60 psi we're used to back in the city, but remember, we're talking about taking a shower. Thank you.
