“Beautiful place to stay”

Your house is beautiful, peaceful and fantastic and we loved every minute of our stay there. It felt like you really cared about your guests having a great time and that contributed to our fabulous stay in Oaxaca, we wished that we could have stayed longer. Lu was fantastic, friendly and incredibly helpful for whatever we needed. We travel a lot and are currently travelling around Mexico, renting Casa Palomita was one of the nicest and best experiences we have had with our accommodation.

“A Perfect Stay!”

Perfectly peaceful, perfectly located--close to all the fun, Maria has thought of everything.

We could only think "Casa Palomita is a piece of heaven!" Our idea is to clone Casa Palomita and everything you do to make it work. It was so helpful to arrive and have Lu great us, to have the basics of coffee, milk and eggs at hand. Having the list of restaurants was perfect. We found a great internet cafe just down the plaza/walking block from Quin Que (yum) restaurant, at the corner of that little Quin Que street and Garcia Vigil--a good way to avoid cell phone charges from the U.S. Your amazing documentation yielded new, helpful information every time we consulted it. I was really impressed by it. We shared it with our visiting friends and recommended your recommendations to visitors we met in Mexico City headed for Oaxaca! We are just so grateful to you for offering us such a lovely home in Oaxaca. We could see by the comment book that so many people return to Casa Palomita. It is so soothing, welcoming, warm, reassuring, lovely, spacious, well appointed and thoughtfully created. We loved it so much.

We are truly grateful to have found such a comfortable home for our first visit to Oaxaca. The location made it easy for us to walk into the center of town easily and after a long day of sightseeing coming back to enjoy the quiet patio with the soothing sounds of the water fountain was just perfect! The entire process to rent the home was very quick and efficient with Maria answering our emails right away. The home is well stocked with everything from kitchen spices to umbrellas, everything worked well including the WIFI, and having Maria's informative guest book and Lu always available to answer any questions was very much appreciated!

Liked best: the private patio
Liked least: the only TV was in the 2nd bedroom instead of the living room

“Absolutely stunning home, couldn't ask for better!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We had a great time on our trip to Oaxaca! Your house is beautiful! We loved staying there during our time in Oaxaca. Lu was great! She was very helpful throughout our stay. We loved the proximity to the zocalo. We walked most days to the zocalo, and the days we didn't feel like walking, it was very easy to catch a taxi by the medical clinic.

Most days I went out for an early walk around the neighborhood and made my daily stop at the panaderia across from the clinic to bring back pandulce for our breakfast. We loved the organic market just up the hill from your house.

I can't of anything that would have made our stay better. You have pretty much thought of everything to make a stay at Casa Palomita very comfortable, cell phones, umbrellas, free calls to the US, washer/dryer, kitchen amenities, drinking water, wi-fi, I could go on and on! And the house itself is so beautiful We loved how you have decorated the interior and exterior.

We contacted Don Vidal and he took us out on 3 days and then to the airport on our last day. Although Laura (Jesus's wife) doesn't speak Spanish and I speak very little, he provided a great experience. He has been taking English classes so we helped each other and had Jorge and Jesus to help translate. Jorge and Jesus took a cooking class from Pilar; they had a great time.

We look forward to staying here again in the future!

Dear Diane,
Thank you so much for your thoughtful reply. Lu emailed me last week to tell me that she purchased some new pillows for the beds, so that's good and sounded like they were really needed. Next time you stay with us, please feel free to bring these types of things up as you notice them to me or Lu directly so we can make sure you are comfortable right away. Kind regards, Maria
