  • Great Casa Crespo!

    "Thank you very much. We had a lovely time in Oaxaca. Enjoyed our stay. The house was comfortable and perfect for us. Macrina was nice and very helpful. We enjoyed talking to her. The two older people who own the small store next door were friendly, charming and gave us a lot of advise on what to see. We found ourselves chatting with them every time we shopped. It was very convenient having them next door. Oaxaca is a beautiful city! Met a lot of nice people there. Thinking of returning next summer to Oaxaca"

  • Sensational to our sensibilities.

    "This property offered everything that we hoped for or wanted in our visit to Oaxaca. The romance of Mexico was readily apparent from the large balcony with mountain views rising over a rolling cityscape; from the tile work throughout but particularly the kitchen and baths; from the profusion of local art decorating the apartment; to the container gardens on every level from street entry to azotea (roof terrace) with its display of potted cacti and more expansive views. My favorite moments happened early in the morning sitting on the balcony, watching the sun rise over the mountains, smelling the new day's sweetness lingering on the air, and listening to the distant rooster rejoicing that it had yet another day saved from the stew pot. But taking the night on the azotea with family and a bottle of mezcal had its own magic. The house was spotlessly clean at our arrival and the property well maintained. It had everything. My son said, "Is there a coffee grinder?" And there was a coffee grinder. I asked another time, "Is there a citrus juicer?" And there it was. In short the home provided everything we needed for meal preparations, as well as, ample linens throughout. The automatic ice maker in the refrigerator along with filtered water throughout was a real boon in a hot climate. In short the only thing that we found missing was a second week to continue enjoying the place. Alejandro and Judith maintain the property and provide ancillary services. Alejandro will pick you up at the airport for instance. Their telephone numbers are available at the property and they passed through to see what if anything was needed on a regular basis. They are delightful, but like most Oaxaquenos have a limited amount of English, so basic Spanish or and iPad or smartphone with a translation program is helpful. And not just for the property, but for moving about Oaxaca. The property is a 20 minute walk to the north end of the Centro Histórico, the plaza at El Templo de Santo Domingo. And requires an addition 5 minutes to walk home as it is uphill. There are taxis available but we seemed to regularly walk.It is a pleasant walk past bars, cafes, and other small businesses. And the location of this house provided a sense of what the real Oaxaca was like. It is situated between the tourist buzz to the south and commercial buzz of modern Mexican society to the north. We could not have been happier."

  • Amazing Views and Convenient Location

    "My husband and I really enjoyed our time at Casa Emily. Anthony was very helpful with our arrangements, even when we had to change our reservation dates months after booking. He also helped arrange our transportation back to the airport at the end of our stay. We enjoyed being in a quieter residential area, but still within walking distance to downtown (just wear good walking shoes because those hills on the way back are steep!). The views from the apartment & rooftop palapa are incredible. We spent some very relaxing afternoons sipping cocktails on the roof where the breeze and shade were refreshing. We also had unobstructed views of an incredible thunder & lightning storm from the safety of the apartment. We were thankful that we had earplugs on a few weekend nights, but I imagine that would be the case anywhere in the city. We did find closing down all of the doors in the bedroom helped with noise as well. Overall, the apartment was very comfortable and we definitely hope to return again soon!"

  • Beautiful, well equipped house in village north of Oaxaca

    "We stayed in the house for almost one month, from February 9 to March 9, 2016, and we did enjoy the time there. The house well situated, surrounded by Mexican village life, with three tiendas in walking distance,where you can buy most of your needs. The house itself is beautiful with terraces on the front and rear, in a large garden; a paradise for birders. The house is full of local art and very colourful, with two bedrooms, and a sleeping porch, where we sat most of the later evenings. Catalina come once a week to clean and help with other things, and gardeners also appear on some days. The house is somewhat difficult to find, but with the help of the property managers, Carl and Celina, it should not be a problem. Our daughter with her two year old stayed for two weeks, and Celina helped out to find a crib for the child. The house is peaceful, but there are Mexican village sounds,which usually stop around 10:00pm or so. The nights are cool in February, down to 10-12 C in early morning, so you will sleep very well. It will warm up very fast and by early afternoon easily reach 30 C, and by early evening still around 22 C, so you can have dinner on the terrace outside. The kitchen is very well equipped, with basically everything you might require. A large superstore, along a Costco concept, Bodega Aurora is halfway between San Pablo de Etla and Oaxaca If you stay only for a few days or a week, and will mainly visit Oaxaca and places nearby we recommend to go by taxi, around 200 pesos one way to Oaxaca. Public transport by motor taxi,tuktuk and local bus will be adventurous, but time consuming. If you stay longer, as we did, I strongly advise to rent a car; we found Hertz at the airport very reasonable,and they actually mention to you that the third party liability is included in the rental. Most other rentals, especially the ones in town include it ( and excessively) in their price resulting in a very expensive rental. Mexicans drive very defensively, are polite and use common sense rather than following strict rules. If you follow the same routine, check all sides of the car, and beware of the speed bumps (topes) you will enjoy driving in Oaxaca. In Oaxaca city there are a number of public parking sites, clearly indicated by E(staciamento), are fairly quiet and charge only 15 to 20 pesos/hour. Oaxaca is at 1600m ,consequently you need some adaption if you arrive from sea level, and the sun can be very hard. We recommend this rental very much"
