Home to artist studios and media offices. Safe, convenient. Great for artistic minded.

The Space

The architecture and design is fabulous and of the highest quality down to the bathroom and kitchen tiles from Maestro Francisco Toledo himself. There are working artists on site along with a beautiful library with over two thousand editions.

Very little.

It is situated in Oaxaca´s oldest neighborhoods: Ex-Marquezado which offers a real, authentic vista of Oaxaca City.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Fantastic place, just as cool as the pictures make it seem! I did not meet Michael but Maggie was very helpful. La Calera is slightly out of the center - it worked out perfectly for me as I was at an event right there. Going to the center is only about a $4 taxi ride and there are taxis at all times, so I'd consider staying there even if I wanted to explore the town.

    Besides the beauty of the place, it was amazing to be surrounded by all the fantastic activities that are going on at the Calera. Highly recommended.

  • This is a such a beautiful space, you will love the art, the terraces, and the courtyards at La Calera. I didn't want to leave!

  • My friend and I stayed here for 3 days/2 nights during our visit to Oaxaca and we loved this house. It was very spacious for the two of us and definitely accommodates 4 people. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable and everything is clean and organized. It was peaceful to sit outside on the deck at night watching the stars and having the quiet surround you. We loved the artistic touches and decorations. Additionally, there is a basketball hoop out front with a small ball bin underneath. As far as the location goes, it is possible to walk from this house to the Zocalo but it takes about 30 minutes so a taxi might be easier. A helpful til would be to request specific driving directions in Spanish so if you don't use their recommended taxi company, your cab driver can find the place. We didn't use the recommended taxi so our driver had a very difficult time finding the place. However, the local contact, Maggie, was quite helpful. Overall, I would highly recommend staying here and would love to stay here again.

  • Amazing experience in Oaxaca. We were so lucky to have been able to spend some time here. The apartment is huge, sunny and beautiful. Michael seems to have put a lot of effort into making this space truly authentic. Maggie was very helpful with handling the "check in". Thanks a lot!

  • The apartment is a beautiful space and has a nice view from the master suite. Although smoking is allowed there was no smoke smell at all. The only slight drawback is the location is not very close to most tourist attractions, but its a 40-50 peso taxi ride or a 20-30 minute walk from the apartment to the zocalo area. The master bedroom does not have any window coverings, but there is no line of sight into the bedroom from the exterior areas; i.e. it is private. There are two bathrooms with showers and one half bath in the house.

    We'll definitely stay again if we go to Oaxaca!

  • An incredible space, we loved staying here. Conveniently next to a cemetery for Dias De Los Muertos. There is a supermarket 5 mins away, and taxis into town come pretty regularly. Michael and Maggie were really helpful and very accommodating for our changing travel times.

  • What an incredible house! A sanctuary to escape to. Only a 40 peso taxi into anywhere in town. Even more beautiful and spacious than the photos suggest. Had a great time!
