  • This is the second time I've had the opportunity and joy to stay with Donna (first time for a month and second time for the weekend) and I can genuinely say there is no better place in Oaxaca to stay at! Location, location, location, additionally the apartment is extremely nice!

  • Staying in the upstairs apt. at Casa Zapoteca was a dream. Indeed, I'd very happily stay in any available apartment in the small complex during future visits. Location is perfect. The apt was absolutely perfect as well--very comfortable, beautiful, perfectly appointed, and then there is that fabulous roof deck with the incredible view of the Convento Sto. Domingo. As with others here, I really appreciated the provisions they kindly placed in the fridge (and the purified water that is available in the courtyard to bring to your apt). I felt completely safe, comfortable, and very much at home. Donna and Carlos (and even their little dog, Gardenia) are the perfect hosts. Donna and Carlos are warm, generous souls and interesting people with which to chat. They went out of their way to help me--e.g., arranging an early morning cab to the airport, and I hired Carols for a fabulous one day tour of outlying villages (ruins at Mitla, to meet a rug weaver from whom I ended up purchasing lovely rugs, to see a petrified waterfall, the Gigante tree, churches, an incredible lunch, a tour of a family-owned mezcal production)--a great whirlwind day! They also offered great restaurant and other sightseeing tips. All in all, a perfect experience and I can't wait to go back to this beautiful town and stay again with Donna and Carlos.

I came upon Oaxaca in the early seventies while traveling through Mexico and Central America looking at ancient ruins, pottery villages and having the adventure of a lifetime. As the years went by I continued to return to the"Land of Chapulines". It retained its magic. And so, in 1996 I gave up the life I loved in a big city and moved to Oaxaca to live a dream. I met my partner, Carlos, and together we renovated an old house in the "el centro".. Renting my own apartment in Casa Zapoteca, short term through airbnb, gives me the freedom to continue the exploration if only for a few days at a time.
