There just aren't enough words to express how great our experience here was. Every aspect of our stay was amazing.
Our first positive experience came when I messaged Roselia to ask her how she suggested we get to their place from the airport since we were coming in late at night. She responded that there was no need to worry about it - that because it was late, she and her husband Mario would be there to pick us up. Sure enough, when we landed in Oaxaca and exited the baggage claim of the airport, she and Mario were standing there holding a sign with my name on it. They drove us to the property, which has a small (but very comfortable) house on it. Mario and Roselia do not live on their garden property, as they have another house in Oaxaca, but this is like their vacation home and space. They have only recently begun to rent it out on AirBnB for others to enjoy!
As previous reviews have stated, the garden grounds are truly incredible and photos don't do the space justice. It definitely feels like you are in a resort, as your "treehouse"-like abode is raised and surrounded by beautiful greenery and flowers. It is very peaceful and quiet, as it is around a 10-15 minute drive away from the city center.
When we awoke after our first night, we brewed our coffee and went to explore the garden more. Mario was there, speaking to the full-time gardener and led us around for a tour of the grounds and giving us more details on how he is an architect and has built this whole space himself over the last 10 - 20 years. He is truly talented and so friendly in talking about his passion with visitors.
We wanted to go into town that first full day and Mario offered to drive us again. When we had to make ourselves leave on our checkout morning (we did NOT want to!) we couldn't find a taxi driver who was available, so Mario and Roselia gave us yet another lift into town.
Thus, overall, Mario and Roselia are amazingly nice people and hosts who went above and beyond. They treated us as if we WERE at a resort and we are so appreciative of everything they did. We told them they could be charging much more per night at this level of pure beauty and service.
This was my friend and I's best AirBnb stay yet and we recommend everyone takes the time to visit. We can't wait to return some day!
