About the Property

New 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Home With Majestic Views

Brand new, sunny, furnished two-bedroom home in quiet hillside neighborhood with terrace and majestic view of city. Close to trails and downtown. Perfect for nature lovers, artists.

Our home is designed by renowned Oaxacan architect Marcos Sanchez, who specializes in sustainable buildings. You will notice the abundance of natural light, clean lines, and efficient use of energy and space. The home is furnished in minimalist style with products by Casa Verde, Oaxacan designers of sustainable furniture. It sleeps two people comfortably, but up to three people.

There are three floors. The first floor has the dinning space and fully-stocked kitchen, featuring artisanal dinnerware and special appliances, such as a blender, Champion juicer, french press, and water filter. The cookware is stainless steel. There is a washing machine.

The bedroom, with matrimonial bed and full bath, is on the second floor. The third floor has a second bedroom (with futon to sleep one), fully-enclosed terrace, and speakers/turntable/ bluetooth receiver. The terrace, with hammock, has a 270 degree view of Oaxaca city and its surroundings.

Enjoy original work by Oaxacan and Mexican artists Francisco Toledo, Fernando Olivera, Taller-Galeria Siqueiros, Lapiztola, and others.

We have a cistern, to avoid public utility water shortages which are common in Oaxaca City.

We try be environmentally friendly: Water is heated by solar energy. Composting equipment is in the yard.

The location is ideal for people wanting a unique Oaxacan experience. The neighborhood Colonia Estrella is adjacent to the city's historic center. Close to downtown, yet quiet and off the beaten path, we offer proximity to hiking trails in addition to more popular tourist sites. By foot, we are twenty minutes to the Santo Domingo cathedral, ten minutes to Xochimilco, and ten minutes to major bus lines. We are two blocks from the entrance to a forest preserve, where you can bike/hike/jog, and visit the Oaxacan astronomy observatory. The hammock is a great spot for watching birds, which fly by the terrace from the forest preserve.

If you enjoy walking, in order to have to a spectacular view, then the location is perfect. Otherwise, it would be best to have a car. There is off-street parking.

Rates include electricity/wifi/gas/water/landline. Monthly housekeeping included for stays of 1+ months. Security deposit required. Inquire about pets.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: Born and raised in southern Oaxaca, I am a co-founder of Los Cuiles Cafe and an assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I specialize in the documentation and preservation of indigenous languages. Other interests include ethnomusicology, and cooking Oaxacan food. My husband Daniel was born in Mexico, but raised in the United States. In college and graduate school, his travel and research interests were mainly in eastern Europe, particularly Albania and the former Yugoslavia. He began to explore his country of birth in his 30s. He came to Oaxaca in 2000 on a weekend visit from Mexico City, and met me! Daniel is fascinated by the cuisine, languages, and vibrant social life of Oaxaca. He is a member of a dance collective that meets Mon-Thurs in Oaxaca City. Our home was designed in 2014. Construction began in April 2015 and was completed in September.
