Close to the historical centre of Oaxaca and yet you can walk straight into nature, up into the oak and pine woods!! You will enjoy the tranquil location, grand views and yet proximity to all the beauty of the city and state of Oaxaca, its nature and people. The "casita" is extremely comfortable, cosy and full of light, with high ceilings, a well equipped kitchen-diner and a delightful bathroom - ideal for a writing retreat or a base for exploring Oaxaca... We can lend you a bicycle, as well.

The space

The "casita" is built to fit quietly into its surroundings - with views from the desk over the mountains - the local nature reserve - and from the bed on the mezzanine over one of the valleys of Oaxaca. There is lots of light coming into the main room and the bathroom; all having been carefully built and decorated by us including hand-built wooden furniture. You will have your independence, but are not isolated.

Guest access

The "casita" is all yours to use; it is separate from the main house and shares the garden - along with our dogs. You can use the terrace of the casita to string your hammock or sit in the shade and relax or work.

Interaction with guests

We are next door, so can help with tips (the casita comes with basic tourist information), but you have all the independence.

Other things to note

The rental includes one hour once weekly cleaning from our long-term friend and trusted cleaner - but this focuses on the surfaces of the shower and bath, as those of the kitchen. We provide guests with material for normal ongoing cleaning that they will do themselves. Should you wish to have more cleaning done, or help with the laundry, that can be arranged separately with our cleaner, at extra expense to you.

Jutta and her husband Guillermo were delightful to meet and to hang out with. They were very helpful and attentive to any problem, including other help which was not included in the stay!!! The casita is beautiful and very nicely decorated. It has all you needed for cooking and linens. The dogs were very friendly and adorable. If you want solitude and tranquility, this is the place!
