  • 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."

  • Great location

    "We stayed in Casa Camille for 10 nights and could not have asked for a better place. We were able to walk everywhere. It is located on Garcia Vigil which was blocked off from traffic during the Day of the Dead festival so slit of parades went down the street. Because the apartment in in the back of the building and off the street is was quite. The only thing is if you are a late sleeper then you may not like the church bells ( directly across the narrow street) rings every morning at 6:30. We are not late sleepers so did not bother us. To be honest the church bells ring all over town so may be hard to get away from them. The apartment was very clean and the provided drinking water for you. We would definitely stay there again if we ever hi back."

  • Perfect vacation stay

    "The house is even nicer in person than in the photos. The two biggest selling points for us were the location and the pool. The pool is long enough for lap swimming but each unit has quite a bit of privacy. It is a just a few blocks from the Zocalo - central but quiet. Also close to many of the restaurants we had planned to visit. Mary Jane, the owner, is a good resource for things to do. We especially enjoyed the Mercado on Sunday which was just down the street. It is a true neighborhood market and it was fun to see local people doing their weekly marketing. There is a supermarket about a block away for groceries which would be nice if you were traveling with kids or doing a longer stay."

  • 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."
