Casa Machaya...a wonderful find! ... My daughter and I have just enjoyed 6 days at this charming, cozy place and we will gladly return! It's in a picturesque area outside the heart of the city, close enough for touring yet, off the beaten path. Al and Arlene, Starkman our knowledgeable and ...

Description - Bed and breakfast

CASA MACHAYA OAXACA BED & BREAKFAST is unique among Oaxaca bed and breakfast accommodations in that we rent an entire spacious level of our modern yet traditionally styled Mexican home to only one set of guests at a time, one or two couples, a family or an individual (second rental unit available upon request). Completely private and with your own separate entrance, youll enjoy all amenities:

fully equipped eat-in kitchen;
landscaped patio with comfy lawn chairs, stone hand-hewn table and four chairs;
bedsittingroom with queen bed, large futon, cable TV with DVD, 3 piece wicker settee, night tables;
optional adjoining extra bedroom with full size bunk beds and chest of drawers;
3 piece washroom.

Your Canadian hosts spent four years building their hillside home with spectacular panoramic vistas using a Oaxacan architect, so youre assured of traditional Mexican flare, color and design, yet with all the conveniences of home without any cultural surprises:

an abundance of hot water for showering;
complimentary 19 liter jugs of purified drinking water;
as well as the little things for the kitchen such as microwave, electric juicer, coffee maker and blender (as well as the usual appliances);
and even a comfy cot for taking a late afternoon snooze.

If traveling with children, we have a good crib with all accessories for toddlers and infants, as well as stroller, high chair and car seat. We can also arrange for babysitting services so as to enable you to get away for a quiet evening, or spend a hectic day touring without concern for boring the kids. We have made special arrangements with a local hotel for use of their swimming pool by our guests.

We provide the comfort and services of the large Oaxaca hotels, with the personal touch and quaintness of the best of bed and breakfast Oaxaca. Awake to the rich sounds of rooster calls and Mexican music echoing across the valley, yet youre only minutes from the zócalo. We supply the following breakfast foods for those on our weekly plan: eggs, cereal, fresh rolls and pastries, seasonal fruit, tea, coffee and condiments. We offer internet and laundry facilities at a nominal rate to cover our costs. Bring your own laptop and the internet is free, 24 hours a day. We include in our rate weekday morning drives to the downtown location of your choice (about 10 minutes) be it to a Spanish language school, market, museum or gallery. Taxi and bus service is available a couple of blocks from the house.

Our Guest Guide is comprehensive in that it provides valuable tips about how to stay healthy in Oaxaca, recommended restaurants including reviews, touring advice and safety tips. In it youll also find articles on topics youll not find in any tour books or travelogues.

Tour guide services are available to the ruins, villages on market days and other sites such as the black pottery, rug and cotton textile towns, Hierve el Agua, 16th century churches and monasteries, and more off-the-beaten-track destinations such as full day treks up the mountain roads to visit mom and pop mezcal operations where you can learn the age old production techniques and subtle flavor nuances of the states famous alcoholic beverage. If youve rented a car or are driving your own vehicle, feel free to avail yourself of our touring advice.

Also available on request are private cooking lessons in our large, traditional kitchen by one of Oaxacas pre-eminent chefs who for years has been receiving praise and recognition from novices, seasoned chefs, and the international culinary community including well-known food critics and restaurant reviewers.

Your host is recognized as a Oaxaca expert on an international travel website, is a founding member of the Oaxaca Bed & Breakfast Association, and is an occasional consultant to documentary film production companies.

Oaxaca is our passion. Our goal is to make your vacation as culturally rich and productive as possible.
