  • It isn't often that reality surpasses expectation

    "but that certainly is the case with Casa Cachito! Do not hesitate booking this beautiful property because I guarantee you will be thrilled with it. From the surroundings to the architecture to the furnishing but most of all to the staff this home is perfection! Raphael, Sylvia and Minerva will take fine care of you as will Nicolas, the home's owner. I only wish every Home Away rental came with a staff as good as this! A real bonus is having Nicolas and his staff offer recommendations AND make reservations for activities, transportation and restaurants. And every recommendation was perfect! I hope to visit again soon and stay longer."

  • Arte Comida

    "I shared the home with 3 friends for 10 days. The home was very comfortable. Fully supplied kitchen, laundry. Beautiful patios which we took full advantage of. Pleasant 20 minute walk to the centro. Quiet neighborhood except for neighbors dogs barking at night. We discovered a wonderful tiny Italian restaurant very close to the house called Arte Comida. The chef cooked us a wonderful 4 course meal with wine for very few pesos."

  • Beautiful Hacienda Style House that takes advantage of outdoor living

    "This house is in an excellent location for exploring the historic heart of Oaxaca. You step into the door off a busy street, and are met with a tranquil interior courtyard, beautifully landscaped and full of wonderful "outdoor living" opportunities. The kitchen is gorgeous and well-stocked and is separate from the rest of the house. Two bathrooms are also in a separate building in the courtyard. So, wherever you go in the home, you travel through the beautiful courtyard. The house was clean, nicely decorated and was perfect for our group of 8 couples traveling together for Dia de los Muertos. The caretaker, Arturo was gracious, kind and very helpful. The owner is also very responsive. I agree with previous reviewers that the 4 spiral staircases that lead to each separate bedroom can be challenging, and with no handrails, can be a bit intimidating. Trips down the stairs to the bathroom in the middle of the night certainly presented some challenges and concerns that people would fall. Renters should just keep this in mind for people with stability issues or other physical challenges. We also experienced a few nights of very loud music from the nearby "mixology and social club." We believe the events to be related to Dia de los Muertos, so the noise is probably not a factor most of the time. I don't think you can find a better location though, and the house is truly beautiful, lovely, clean and inviting. You are just a few blocks from Santo Domingo and some great restaurants (we liked Pitiona, Zandunga, La Biznaga). We also loved Catedral (amazing meal!). I would highly recommend this house to other travelers. It is a great way to experience Oaxaca."

  • Perfect House--Plus some Challenges

    "This home is better than described. We spent 16 days here over the Christmas holidays. It is roomy, bright and pleasant, well furnished, immaculate, and comfortable. The two patios are very private and overlook interesting landscapes of fruit trees, cactus, succulents. There is local artwork everywhere in the home--clay sculptures, hand-woven rugs, paintings, baskets, etc. The house manager, Celina, was a blessing in making our visit better. She gave us a little driving tour to orient us to the immediate area. We had one problem with hot water and that was solved immediately. She assured us that she was always available. Cleaning was done by a very nice lady named Cata. We did our own laundry but she was available for any extra help we might need. Here though, I want to describe a few things that might help you plan your trip or be better prepared for enjoying it. We rented a car for the full time of our visit from the airport, as that is our normal pattern when we travel. Driving in Oaxaca, is however, very challenging and somewhat frightening. At the end of our visit we wondered if we would have been better off using taxis as we could figure on paying approximately $10 an hour for their services. Renting a car cost about $40 a day with extra insurance. Lupe is an English speaking driver with a good car who lives in the village. On our next to last day, we did have an accident caused by a lady who got impatient and passed us as we made a legal left turn! Here are two negatives related to the location of the house. The most direct route to the house once you leave the main highway, is through a poor, dusty, depressing area of chicken stands and mini-tiendas. The village itself is charming but it is accessed from a different road. The second thing we didn't like about the location is that in the evening there are no restaurants near-by without going back into Oaxaca. We did go to Villa Del Sol on the main highway (about 3 miles away) and it was pleasant for a quick meal. But generally after a day of exploring we would come back to the house, lock the car in the gate and make something light at home. We enjoyed visiting the different craft villages, the city of Oaxaca and we especially liked visiting near-by San Augustin Etla and the gallery there (Villa Hermosa). Oaxaca is about 6-7 miles from the house so without traffic it is about a 20 minute drive. It took some time to learn our way into and around the city."
