This isa wonderful place to stay on Oaxaca city. The proximity is ideal for both the historic center and the nearby markets, as well asthenosphere Reforma neighborhood. My wife and I LOVED this place for the Xmas holidays. Marina is the perfect hostess!
The El Cielo suite in Oaxaca was indeed gorgeous. Located above the owner's own house, the suite was very comfortable and modern. Our host, who was away when we visited, called upon our check in to welcome us and allowed us to view the entire property. It was was a treat to experience modern Oaxacan architecture. Before and during our stay, the host was available for any questions, concerns and tips for things to do and restaurants to enjoy. We took full advantage of Marina's expertise in the area . In the full week we were there, we visited most of her recommendations and enjoyed them all.
El Cielo is in a quiet, historical neighbourhood close to the weekend Pochote market and within walking distance to all the Centro has to offer. The suite is clean, bright and secure with a fabulous private terrace. Although Marina was away during our stay she was extremely accessible and made wonderful suggestions to make our time in Oaxaca even more special. As well, we appreciated finding a beautiful fruit basket and bouquet of flowers on the kitchen table when we arrived late in the evening. We hope to return to Oaxaca and El Cielo again!
Above and beyond (email hidden)rina arranged for a driver to pick us up at the Oaxaca airport, to take us to the property, where Vicencio (property maintenance person) was waiting for us, so he can show us around and give us the keys. The property is not only secure, but it is also impeccably clean, modern, and well decorated.
The place looks new, with marbled/tiled walls in the bath, and rich dark wood cabinetry.
Nereida, came in daily to remove trash and to clean, not only the apartment, but also the large terrace area where we spent much of our time, lounging, dining, and a great place to catch an afternoon siesta.
Marina was in contact with us periodically to check if we needed anything. Which we thought was great and attentive. Felt more like family.
We would stay at El Cielo Oaxaca again, in a heartbeat.
Marina was very responsive and easy to communicate with.
The place turned out better than the pictures and we would have liked to have stayed longer. The location was quiet and just around the corner from a great Saturday morning market where we sampled many typical Oaxacan dishes.
We spent a wonderful week at El Cielo. Everything was better than described. We spent as much time enjoying the suite as we did the city. On the other hand, Marina was so kind through out our stay. She was always alert if we needed something. I would definitely recommend this place. The next time I go to Oaxaca it will be my to-go option.
Marina and Chris are excellent hosts. El Cielo is even better than the photos show. Their house is in a great neighbourhood and within a short walking distance to the historical centre. We had a wonderful stay in Oaxaca and highly recommend Marina's place. Thank you Marina and Chris.
