Overview

Photos and Description of the Oaxaca vacation condo rental

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 - housekeeping included

Casa de la Armonia is a very spacious 2,368 square feet penthouse with plenty of space for reading and relaxing. The complex has only 27 units which creates a very homey atmosphere, and quickly becomes a home away from home.

The condo is only a few minutes walk to the Santa Cruz beach where numerous restaurants allow you to spend a leisurely day on the beach under the umbrellas or palapas, eating ceviche or guacamole or fresh fish, or having a beverage - on breaks from playing in the ocean, swimming or snorkeling or looking for shells! Occasionally you can have a front row seat and watch the cruise ships pull in.

The condo is about 15 kilometers from the airport - and we can arrange a private transfers to and from if you like ... we strongly recommend it as we find it much easier - especially when it comes to getting luggage up and down the stairs! :)

The condo has 3 Bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (Two 3-piece bathrooms and Master bathroom with Jacuzzi bath/shower) and is perfect for families wanting to holiday together while still having plenty of opportunity to have their privacy and space. Bedding is 1 King (master), 1 Queen, and 1 double plus a double/twin bunk bed (perfect for kids, or couples).

The master bedroom has a private terrace (perfect for that quiet morning cup of coffee!) and a second terrace is off the spacious living room and dining room area.

There is a separate TV room for teens to game or anyone to watch movies (stocked with a bit of an assortment). Over the years we have found this perfect for allowing kids to mellow out at nap time, wind down at the end of the day, or allow us some quiet time once everyone else has gone to bed.

The dining room and kitchen are large and very open, and there is a separate wet bar.

We recommend heading out for meals instead of spending time in the kitchen ... as there are numerous restaurants in both Santa Cruz, Crucecita and Tangolunda to explore ... and the food is both amazing and reasonably priced. Use the kitchen for coffee and snacks and get out and explore :)

There is a service room with washer and drier, but don't worry about the major cleaning as our housekeeper is available at least 2x per week to assist you.

We highly recommend that you have us arrange transfers to and from the airport in advance. The cost will calculate on booking and can be deleted if not required.

VRBO will automatically calculate basic service including housekeeping every other day but NOT including daily breakfasts. If you would like we can arrange for daily breakfasts ... or even just a couple if you would like :)

Optional meals (Ana is a fabulous cook!), as well as excursions, can also be arranged with Ana once you arrive.

*Note* We have on occasion been able to arrange for groups of 14 to book into our unit and an adjoining one. Not easy ... but may be possible. Call to discuss dates and options.

Notes:
We highly recommend having Ana come in to prepare one of her excellent breakfasts for you at least a couple of times a week. On days when you prefer to wake without a schedule and ease in with coffee, ask Ana the day before to leave behind a bowl of her amazing guacamole and homemade salsa after she cleans instead. Another experience we recommend is that you book Ana to make supper WITH you ... take you shopping, hit the market, select ingredients together .. and make a traditional Mexican meal. For the cooks in the family that wanted a holiday from the kitchen, make this your ONLY exception to being in the kitchen !!! :)
