Description from owner


Please ask for discounts and last minute offers!! We offer for rent a beautiful, very light and spacious (180 square meters), fully furnished 2 bedroom + study area/2 bathroom house in the desirable and SAFE San Felipe del Agua. Although the North of Mexico suffers from insecurity, this area of Mexico is particularly tranquil. Please see the reviews from previous renters earlier this year. The house we offer is very spacious and combines the best of modern and traditional design. Our house has a modern kitchen with a new stove, big fridge, washer etc an enormous inviting lounge/dining room with high wooden beamed ceiling leading on to a spacious roofed terrace with grill, hammock etc downstairs leading on to a garden, 2 bathrooms. There are two lovely bedrooms; the one upstairs can easily accommodate a double plus and extra single if necessary; it has a balcony with great views and a study area. There is a twin bedroom downstairs, also with a desk and plenty of space. It is next to the terrace where most visitors have passed their time as it is so inviting, beautiful, cool and relaxing. (Limited access - 2 hours daily - to the solar heated pool next door can be arranged on weekdays and some weekend days for a reasonable $30 weekly which contributes to cleaning costs). Those who come with children need not worry about pool safety as there is a gate with a combination padlock between the house and our pool. All beds have mosquito nets which you can decide if you want to use if you come during the hotter months. All windows and doors have screens so some visitors find the nets redundant.The house is set in stunning surroundings, with views of the mountains from all angles of the house. It is situated in the most desirable residential area of Oaxaca, San Felipe del Agua. The house is set back 40 metres from the road (which has little traffic) so it is very peaceful and is only moments from local shops. San Felipe del Agua juxtaposes 5 star hotels and simple abodes and its cobbled-stoned roads are shared by sophisticated cars, cows and donkeys. There are also many nearby restaurants with very good food.The house is surprisingly close to the historic centre, so you will have the best of all worlds! Wake up with a glorious view to the mountains from your bedroom window,, exotic birds in your lush garden and the smell of tortillas, handmade in the ancient way, by a neighbouring family, just minutes from your door. They will be happy to provide you with this delicious local food on a daily basis. The house is 2 blocks from the San Felipe del Agua Church and its square which has market days on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, a local lending library and restaurants and many places to eat. The bus into town (running every day) is less than a 5 minute walk away from the house; and schools, for families with young children, are also within walking distance, so a car is not needed. Oaxaca is a popular spot for both foreigners and Mexicans due to the year-long wonderful climate and the exceptional scenery including cactus lined valleys and glorious mountains. There are fascinating cultural buildings and artisanal markets; also including museums, restaurants, various exciting specialist markets, and experiencing nature e.g., hiking in spectacular parks and ecologically important forests, etc. Economic weekly cleaning, can be arranged as well as to have delicious Mexican food delivered to your door,and cooking or baby sitting can also be arranged at very reasonable rates. It is easy to get a taxi to our house from the airport. We welcome short and long term visitors and we have had people stay from a weekend to a year or more. The house is great for all ages and those who like to paint/write/relax or immerse their children in the most colourful Mexican culture to learn/improve their Spanish and experience the world in one of the most popular cities in Mexico. Visitors with children will enjoy all the extra curricular activities that Oaxaca has to offer, art classes teaching artisanal craft, dance, horse riding etc. We also have a stair gate and cot for babies.Please note pool charges are not included and cleaning charges are $30 per week. Please note that there is an extra charge for each person beyond 4 guests of $25 per night.Cleaning per week or visit (if shorter than a week) for 6 hours of cleaning is $US 18. Security deposit for stays one month or longer of $100 depending on length of stay

Response from the owner Thank you for your review. As you know we were unfortunately on a year's sabbatical and missed seeing you.

There is an un market on a block away in the Hotel Los Laureles, a delicious sushi restaurant ten minutes walk away and typical Mexican cafes just a stone's throw from the house!
