Irene and her family are simply delightful. Their house is HUGE, and they will no doubt invite you down for a tea and a chat. Irene is very hospitable and will provide everything you need, very generous. Sonia also is an excellent tour guide, and happy to share with you the history of Oaxaca. Ernesto was kind to welcome me despite being sick...this whole family is very polite and VERY welcoming. The space is an apartment on the top of the house which is self contained and has everything you could need (fan, pots, pans etc). There is a seperate private side entrance so it feels like your own private apartment. Amazing terrace to sunbake on enjoy the views over the city. It's about a 40 minute walk to the old city centre or short 10 minute cab ride, but a little bit north of the city. It's more in the "new town" which has excellent restaurants and feels more authentic like how the locals live. Less tourists! All in all, a fantastic hosting experience, in the true spirit of AirBnB. Muchos Gracias!

The place is one of two apartments on the top of a roof terrace. In simplest terms it is an efficiency: one room, with a desk, eating space, shower and toilet. It is perhaps a little far from the historic center for some, but the neighborhood is safe and has an array of useful shops very close by (grocery, laundry, pharmacy, etc..) Within blocks are hospitals and the school of medicine, which means the neighborhood also has the budget restaurants and taquerías that students like. It isn't "fine dining," but you can get solid cheap food in the area. I particularly like the terrace for doing some morning stretching exercises and doing some occasional birdwatching.

Beautiful home and family!! Irene, Sonia, and Ernesto helped make my stay in Oaxaca lovely and memorable. Charming rooms, sunny terrace, lots of room, natural light, and plants. Not to mention that Mr. Bruno (the house puppy) is the warmest and sweetest friend ever!! Perfectly located in the hills above downtown and within easy walking distance to restaurants, stores, busses, markets, cafes, museums, libraries, boutiques, and tons of public art!! Don't miss this one!!!

I lived with Irene and her family for a month and staying with them was the best experience of my trip, they all have an excellent attitude and were very helpful since the moment I arrived, offering me to eat with them and giving me all the tips and advises I needed; her sons, Sonia and Ernesto took me to visit awesome places and the best restaurants to try local food. The rooms were exactly as described, new, spacious, very clean, comfortable and cozy, there´s also a very cool terrace outside where you can chill and enjoy a great view of the city. The house is in a great neighborhood, very safe and well located, everything you need like restaurants, convenience stores, drugstores and a mall are walking distance, only 5 to 10 minutes away, the historic center is also very close, 5 minutes in taxi or 20 minutes walking. If you are visiting Oaxaca and want to taste the local life and have a special experience you definitely have to stay with Irene and her family.

This place was AWESOME. Irene and her family were so good to us--even inviting us down for breakfast with her family before we caught a bus out of Oaxaca. And leaving us with a few local gifts on our way out, too. The room is very comfortable and is on the top floor of her family's house, but with private access to the room itself. There's a big terrace overlooking the city and the mountains, and it's in a nice neighborhood where we felt comfortable walking around at night. It's about a 25 minute walk into the historic center, or a 5 minute taxi ride. Definitely a great place to stay.
