Great location, WIFI and value

  • 4 of 5

As we looked for a monthlong rental, we wanted a good location, WIFI and sufficient room to spread out. We got all three. The casa is on a quiet side street just off of a small plaza with a great coffee shop and a five minute walk from Plaza Santo Domingo. Perfect. The WIFI worked as well as at home. There are three bedrooms, so we could use one for our stuff..When we arrived, Laura said she would be waiting outside, as the house is hard to find the first time. There she was,. The bed in our bedroom was very comfortable, and there was a door that opened to the outside which gave us a cool breeze all night. There was a yapping dog that caused some annoyance, but I got used to it, and there was the constant call of cooing doves. If you are expecting the Ritz, this is not for you, but if you are looking for reasonable comfort and good value, we recommend. It.

Wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, our stay was perfect! The house is in a perfect location for exploring the city of Oaxaca. It is spacious, clean, and charming. Laura was available to help but we had total privacy and quiet. I will never forget our stay there and highly recommend it to others.

Perfectly adequate for a short stay. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

A pleasant 3 bdrm house in a great part of the city, a couple blocks from Sta. Domingo cathedral. Could use better lighting in bedrooms as well as a chest of drawers. Laura is very nice and very helpful. Pricing is appropriate.

Great location and beautiful space

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our 20 month old daughter and loved this home. The inside is beautifully decorated and well equipped with fans to keep you cool. It is separated from the street by a gate and the owners home (who were very respectful and quiet) and so was very peaceful. We also loved this location. Its a short walk to the Zocalo and very close to restaurants, shops and two parks. Our only complaint was that one of the toilets leaked which caused a musty smell.

Shabby Not Chic

  • 2 of 5

The only redeeming feature of this property was the location. It was very rustico and because it was so run down appeared to be dirty. The beds were uncomfortable. The linens were awful. And the house was just not outfitted for a comfortable stay. There was no hot water in the kitchen. Nor was there a toaster. The fridge was very difficult to open. There were very few electrical outlets and only one that would accept a three prong computer charger. The bathrooms do not have doors which was a bit unsettling as we were adults travelling together and sharing the space. We were told the proprietor was bilingual and would be able to help us with directions etc. She spoke no english at all. Also - the unit is in behind a home and does not have it's own bell. We had no way of knowing that we had guests outside the gate. This caused us problems on more than one occasion. Also - there is no light in the carport area from the street to the front door of the house. There is however a very large dog with a ferocious bark who greeted us every time we returned to the house.

So - we would not return to this property. Nor would we recommend this property to anyone ever. Definitely not our cup of tea.
