About This Listing
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 has one bedroom with a double bed and a bathroom. The apartment includes 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 place has a good location it's a couple of blocks from the plaza, zocalo, and markets. The room is very big and accommodating with a kitchen, living room, and bedroom. This is Mexico so remember there will be the usual suspects: cockroaches, spiders, mosquitos, and even rats so be wary. We kept a towel under the door to keep most out but some still get through. There is no breakfast provided. There is a small cafe in front where you can purchase meals. Service itself could be a lot better. Our host was not there to greet us, his daughter let us in. Actually, we walked by him two times just saying hello and I ended up asking if he was our host and introducing myself to him. After that we didn't see him at all, we didn't even know where he stays or anything. We did hear the music blasting all day though. One night we ran into him pretty late when he was intoxicated and we got a little bit of slurred advice on the city. Not professional for a place for unknown guests. I recommend another place if you want a better B&B experience in Oaxaca.
Excellent experience with Victor and his family! We loved the setup, so much so that we came back to stay with him after our visit to the coast. The apartment itself is very nice, clean with a good aesthetic. It was very spacious as well with a nice little kitchenette and living room set up, definitely a place we could live in longer term if we had had the time to stay in Oaxaca. We loved that Victor has a restaurant in the front; we had coffee, mezcal and beers there several times and it was really fun getting to know a few locals. Plus, Victor makes the BEST sal de gusano! You walk through a pretty little garden with a great outdoor area to get to the apartment, so it's very quiet since it's off the street. And it's only a few minutes walk from the main square. We highly recommend staying with Victor if you go to Oaxaca!
Nuestra estancia fue muy placentera, Víctor nos dejó entrar a la habitación antes de la hora prevista. El único problema fue que las fotos que vimos de la casa no se ajustaban a la habitación. Aunque la habitación era muy amplia y tenia lo necesario.
The location is excellent. The typical courtyard Oaxacan home is very picturesque and cozy. The apartment itself is fully equipped with a kitchen. I was unlucky to not have any gas available for the night I spent. Victor was very attentive when I asked to spend only one night instead of the obligatory two and was willing to answer as many questions as I had. The apt is a bit rustic, but for the price in that area its fine. The dogs are a bit intimidating and you can feel the courtyard is theirs.
We had our own little back house in a courtyard garden area. Victor, the owners son, gave us the keys upon arrival as well as some good recommendations for art events in Oaxaca. When we arrived, we ate some delicious food and cold beer in the bar that they own in the front of the house.
The neighborhood is in a great location slightly off the the main bustling historic center, only 10 minutes walking from the Zócalo, markets, beautiful churches, plazas, and many parks. Close to many restaurants, cafes and bars too. We walked everywhere in Oaxaca.
The room was very comfortable, breezy, and cool. It has a spacious but simples bedroom, a kitchen with fridge, sink, and silverware, a nice bathroom, and a living/dining room area. Right outside is the garden with pomegranate trees, palms, cacti, and Victor's friendly dogs. Beautiful place to relax before walking around the city.
