Very cool space in the historic center of Oaxaca within walking distance to all major sites in the center. Orignal house with the classic interior patio, hugh open space with lush garden including avocado and pomegrante trees. The house is owned by the Chagoya family who reside in the main house, there are several apartemtns situated around the garden, occupied by local artists and an engraving studio.
The apartment for rent is two stories with two bedrooms and one and half baths. The main bath and bedrooms are upstairs, one has a full double bed and the other a single bed; there is also a single bed in the living room downstairs. The apartment includes a well equipped kitchen with stove and fridge, Sheets, towells and all typical hotel amenities included. Hot water and wireless internet 24 hours a day.
Buses available on the corner, taxis pass at all hours and is within 5 minutes walking distance to the ADO terminal for national transportation. In the same block there are two small stores, a taco shop and a classic cantina that turns into a salsa club on the wekkends. Within five minutes walking distance to the Plaza Santo Domingo and the Zocalo.
This is a very relaxed enviornent, just have respect for the house and the other residents.
Victor, his family and his friends all made this a wonderful way to spend the holidays away from home. They welcomed us to celebrate Christmas Eve dinner, which included wonderful home-cooked feast, good wine, new friendships, live music and more than a little mezcal. Throughout the stay, Victor was very helpful in arranging taxis, giving advice on where to go, and quickly took care of any requests we had. Even the dogs made us feel at home, but be warned, once they put their head on your lap, they quickly fall asleep.
Palo Mulato is located a few minutes walk to most parts of Oaxaca, including downtown. And, the few times we needed a taxi, it was waiting at the front door. The main bus terminal is also just a 10 minute walk. And, just outside the front door were plenty of new friends to make, stores and places to grab something to eat. The neighborhood is safe and no hesitation to walk around at night.
If you are looking for a hotel accommodation, you probably aren't reading this review. If you are looking for a comfortable place to call home for awhile, to make new friends and be part of life, not just a tourist, this is the place.
We will return to Oaxaca, in large part, because we have new friends and a "home" to stay at.
Víctor es un gran anfitrión, es muy amable y siempre está al pendiente de los huéspedes. El lugar tiene una gran ubicación y lo necesario para pasar unos días en Oaxaca. Muy recomendable.
We had a fantastic time staying at palo mulato , It was extremely spacious and affordable .The area was very safe and walking distance to oaxaca markets and town centre .The kitchen was well stocked with utilities and we were made to feel very welcome .
Perfectly located within walking distance to most everything you will want to see during your travels. Friendly environment and cozy atmosphere. The place is spacious and the price is fair. I would definitely recommend to others.
Amazing location! Everything is walkable. Victor is so kind and helpful!
I had a lovely time here. I found the home to be enjoyable and in a way to be a home away from home. Thank you Victor and Victor Jr!
Victor is a very friendly and accommodating host! We changed our travel plans multiple times within days of arriving, and he was totally flexible about meeting us. He also made sure we had safe parking.
The location is perfect--just a few blocks from everything you would want to see in Oaxaca--and the space is really great. There is a community of artists-in-residence who are happy to share their work, a lovely garden patio, and three friendly dogs. Victor also provided us with information about what to see and do in Oaxaca, which was super-helpful.
