CASA JM DE OAXACA:
Rooms available in Oaxacan house. All rooms have private bathrooms.
Included in the price are electricity, gas, internet, hot water, drinking water, a security safe, television (no cable).
Excellent location, just one and half blocks from Plaza Santo Domingo, and three blocks from the Zócalo. This is the center of all the action in Oaxaca - you cannot find a better location. Many great restaurants nearby, a good market (Sanchez Pascuas) just three blocks away, gymnasium, laundry, pharmacy, everything you could need. And if you can't find something, please feel free to ask - my family and I live next door. I will also be happy to give you some tips on good activities to do if this is your first time in Oaxaca.
The rooms also have access to my house's rooftop terrace, which has views of Santo Domingo church, lounge chairs, a game table, and a wide screen TV.
We had a great experience at Jose's place! It is a cute place with a beautiful sunny terrace on the roof. Jose was very helpful and kind. He went out of his way to show us the beautiful Oaxava. He even helped us with our Spanish! Bonus. The place is clean and the location is PERFECTO. The wifi works well, and there are outlets to charge your devices. It's within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. The Zocalo (city center) is a block away. There are numerous restaurants, coffee shops, and art museums near by. It is affordable and easy. I would definitely stay there again!!!
I had a nice visit at José's place. The room I stayed in was very pretty and well taken care of and the terrace is lovely. The house is well located and José is very friendly and helpful. The bar across the street can be loud at night but I had heavy shutters on my windows and with earplugs it was just fine for me.
Jose is very easy going and is always making sure we have everything we need. He's very generous and even took us to a few places around Oaxaca.
He's mum is also there and she knows the area very well. If you speak Spanish, be sure to chat with her, she's wonderful.
Location is excellent. There's so much to see in Oaxaca and this place was excellent for our long stay.
This is the type of experience many Airbnb users are seeking: more than just a (very reasonbly priced, centrally located) place to stay, you will be a guest of Jose and his family; they will treat you to gracious hospitality in every way.
Especially memorable to me was being invited as a valued guest to Christmas Eve dinner with his extended family. One doesn't experience that in a hotel. And that type of immersion gives you a deeper relationship with the place and a much richer experience as a visitor.
Location cannot be beat: one and two blocks off the streets most interesting to tourists and within view (from the beautiful roof terrace) of Santo Domingo church. A short walk to everything.
You're likley to meet other agreeable, interesting guests there as well.
Jose was a superb host. He was polite, helpful, and caring. I was made to feel completely comfortable in his home.
The house has a spectacular location. I was able to walk everywhere. The home is kept spotless. WAY better than any hotel I stayed in on my trip.
There is a good bit of street noise, especially on weekend nights. Jose was thoughtful enough to provide earplugs! I used them and slept fine.
My Spanish is good but not great. I was able to write to Jose in English, and asked that he respond in Spanish. That worked fine for both of us. I would not hesitate to recommend his house to other travelers to Oaxaca.
El lugar estuvo muy limpio, bonito, amplio y José era un anfitrion muy amable y con buenas recomendaciones. La ubicación está ideal, en medio de todo pero en un callejon tranquilo. Lo recomiendo!
The place was nice, very clean and spacious. José was nice and had several good recommendations. The location was ideal, in the middle of everything, but on a quiet side street. Recommended!
We had a very good time with José. He showed us some nice places around oaxaca and especially good places to eat!
We had a great time in Jose's apartment! He was very kind and flexible (we didn't arrive until midnight, but he greeted us happily all the same!)
The room was very comfortable and the location couldn't have been better.
Also, Jose was full of outstanding recommendations. Overall, I think it was really an ideal place to stay.
Our four night stay with Jose and his family was really very good. He was very helpful and hospitable. Jose gave us a full tour of the house and made us feel very welcome to use the family living room and spaces, including the rooftop which looks over to Santo Domingo and other parts of the city. The room was fully equipped and comfortable, and was cleaned regularly too. The location is so central, making it easy to get to different places during our stay. The true highlight of staying with Jose was his advice and tips about places to go and how to get to places of interest too. His local knowledge was priceless and meant that everything from buses to restaurants were easy. Jose knows some really great places to eat. We loved staying here and talking to Jose even though our terrible Spanish meant that he was forved to speak english most of the time. I would definitely recommend staying with Jose and would stay here agin myself.
