KT's home is beautiful, colorful with local arts and crafts throughout. It is very clean and comfortable. There is a ceiling fan in the bedroom which helps with the warm nights. We enjoyed the second floor terrace for reading, coffee, a breeze, a view to the mountains and life on the street. It was a treat for us that there is both a dog and a cat in the home. They are friendly and well behaved, enjoying attention when offered but not seeking us out. It was an easy walk to restaurants, shops and plazas. I would highly recommend a stay here.

We really enjoyed our stay with K.T. The house is very beautiful, clean, and comfortable. K.T. provided us with directions from the airport and gave us a thorough orientation to the house when we arrived. Guapo welcomed us as well and was friendly and sweet throughout our stay. There were other guests staying with K.T. at the time, but the house was always quiet. The WiFi was strong, the bedroom was comfortable, and the bathroom had all the necessities. K.T's neighborhood is also quiet and removed from the city center, which was good since we were visiting during Day of the Dead, when festivities can go on all night! We still heard some noise from the street from the celebrations, but I suspect normally the place is quieter. Her place is just a 15 minute walk from many great restaurants and sites. Her neighborhood is secluded but felt safe enough to walk around at night.

KT was there with a friendly welcome when we arrived. She had very clear guidelines and logistics about staying in her home, both written and verbal. There was information provided about things to do in the city of Oaxaca. Her home was beautiful and impeccable. We had a comfortable bed and private bath with a large shower. There was a second floor outdoor terrace to enjoy close to our bedroom. The home is located up a hill so there was a view of large blooming trees, the city and mountains. We felt perfectly safe in the neighborhood and it was a pleasant walking distance from interesting things to do. Buses, taxis and collectivos were quite accessible for destinations further than we wanted to walk. We appreciated the mix of friendly interaction and a respect for our privacy. We felt tended to. There was a lovely cup and saucer set out each morning, with coffee and tea ready to be made fresh for us with the flick of a button. We'd stay there again in a heartbeat! Thank you, KT!!

Charming hostess with a beautifully decorated and very clean home. KT provided excellent recommendations for eating, shopping, sightseeing, and exploring. We enjoyed going for morning walks up the hill just above her house, and her home is also within close walking distance of the zocolo and the main city center. Sweet dog and graceful cat were lovely additions as well.

KT was a wonderful and thoughtful host. Her very lovely house is exceptionally clean and we were made to feel welcome and at home. The bed is extremely comfortable with a supportive firm mattress and there is lots of drawer and closet space. KT was so kind to organize some local experiences including a trip with a guide to a local market place and also called a taxi for us (he is a man who she uses regularly) to take us there, to the airport and also to an out of town lunch destination. The neighborhood is a 10 minute walk from the center of town and felt safe. We walked back in the dark many times and never felt uneasy. KT set out a coffee for us each morning and pointed us to the best local breakfast places. Delicious food is one of Oaxaca's treasures.

Our first impression of KT's home was its eclectic colorful and artistic decorations. It is a split-level home with modern amenities and very comfortable. The Casa Bonita room offered lots of storage and closet space and the bed was comfortable. There was also maid service for linens and towels to be changed. This is one of those pads that spoil you for anything else. KT, our hostess, was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable about all things to visit, see, hear, and eat in Oaxaca and its surroundings. She is one who has fully embraced the language and culture of Oaxaca, and that will serve you well when you want advice about local sights and eats. The pets are friendly yet not overbearing; they will offer themselves for your attention but will not jump onto your lap. The house is located a few blocks from the edge of the tourist-centered part of the city, and it's a mild uphill climb and slightly circuitous route to get to the house on foot. Taxi's were inexpensive and bus routes just a couple of blocks away. And when you leave, there will be a quick walk-through of your room to make sure you haven't forgotten anything behind. It's like having a live-in concierge/travel-advisor. All in all we enjoyed our stay and highly recommend staying at Casa Bonita!

I moved to Oaxaca from New York City in the winter of 2006 because a friend told me if I lived in Oaxaca, I’d never be bored---and was she ever right! Art openings, dance classes, film festivals, concerts, lunches and outings with friends to small towns in the mountains, or breathtaking pine forests, classes given and classes taken and the day to day things that make house holding a full-time job keep me happy and busy—and never, ever bored.

The Oaxaca I love is beautiful, safe and a treat for all five senses. I never leave the house without discovering something I’ve never seen before, so I encourage friends to come and discover the Oaxaca that makes them as happy as my Oaxaca makes me.
