Let's just say the pictures don't do this apartment justice.
The apartment is large, much larger than appears. Outside are an upper deck, seating for 6 people and a lower deck, seating for at least four people. The two bedrooms are on opposite sides of the apartment, for maximum privacy. Beds are comfortable. This is in a local neighborhood, so there are small stores and a terrific coffee place within a 5 minute walk. Across the street is a tiny (2 tables) restaurant, with the best breakfast in town.
Anthony was very responsive and kind. Our correspondence prior to the trip was timely and his tips were helpful to me. I would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone!
We arrived in Oaxaca about midnight. Anthony arranged for pick up at the airport and within a half hour of landing we were at this rental. We were blown away by the view!! So many seating areas. Very comfortable beds. The upper patio was perfect for morning yoga. The lower patio was perfect for having some wine, watching the sunset and enjoying the view.
Location was great. Short walk into town and a cab ride back is only about 50 pesos.
So much to explore in Oaxaca.
We did a cooking class, Monte Alban, cultural museum, textile museum, ethno botanical garden tour with the director. Everything was fascinating. And shopping in the markets near the Zocolo.
Definitely would stay here again!
The pictures don't do justice to this lovely apartment. The view from the large deck is beautiful, especially at night with the lights glowing on the hills across the city. Anthony and his family were very helpful and friendly. The apartment is large and well laid-out. We were lucky to have enough time in Oaxaca to relax and read, cook at home with food from the fabulous markets, as well as see the sites. When the walk to the main tourist part of town is described as 15 minutes, it really is 15 minutes! So you're close to things without being in the middle of a very busy area. We hope to return to this wonderful city and Casa de Emily will be our home while we're there.
This was my second time staying at Casa de Emily and I will stay there again some day. Anthony is a fantastic host with great communication and full of ideas. He was waiting for me at 10:00 pm with snacks and drinks. He also checked in with me several times during the 3 weeks I was there. For me, the highlight of the apartment is the huge terrace with views of the city. You will find a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms and all is clean. Hot water all the time. The walk to Santo Domingo is about 15 minutes - a pleasant walk through the neighborhood.
