We loved staying in Casa Palomita; it's perfect for 2 couples. The living area and patio are open and spacious and the kitchen is easy to use. The bedrooms are far apart so there's lots of privacy. Everything provided is the best quality: sheets, towels, kitchen items. We love being surrounded by the beauty of the house and folk art.

The house is an easy walk to the Centro and is in a very nice neighborhood. Don Vidal, the recommended taxi driver/tour guide is a marvel. Very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. He really made our trip special.

Maria,
My husband and I are sitting at LAX waiting for our flight home. In talking about the highlights of our trip to Oaxaca, Casa Palomita is clearly on top. What a lovely home you've created, both architecturally and arts-wise. You have an amazing eye for colors and textures; it was truly a feast for our eyes. It also reinforced our interest in finding several artisans my friend and I had researched, which resulted in some wonderful personal connections as well as beautiful art to bring home. Thanks so much for opening your Oaxacan home to us. It is a very special place. Elaine

Hola Maria;
Sorry, Gringo warp time of being in Oaxaca 
Your home is amazing! I loved seeing the photo book of the progress in construction or more like ‘resurrection’ that you did. We also loved the interior decorating that was done… the artwork really gave us the feeling of being someplace unique.
There is nothing that could have been done to make it any more comfortable or relaxing. The only thing I questioned Lu about was the length of time it took for the Kitchen sink to receive warm water to wash dishes…the far shower in the next room over seemed to have hot water faster! It’s not something I would think can be done any different as the water flow was good at the kitchen sink. Maybe it’s because our water heater at home is about 5 feet from our kitchen and I’m spoiled by the short time of delivery.
The only problem we had is the four pounds we gained while in Oaxaca!
Thank you for putting your home out there for vacationers. The price is a real bargain. I am glad you found everything well cared for by us and if we were the type of people who would have thought of taking something that didn’t belong to us…we probably would have made off with Lu, she was a great help and we will miss her smile and peaceful demeanor. You have a dedicated caretaker in her.

“Wonderful house, wonderful neighborhood”

This pretty house has a lovely private courtyard, a spacious, comfortable, well-equipped living room/kitchen. The beds and bathrooms are fine. Everything works (light switches, faucets, doors, screens), which is saying a lot. The property manager and housekeeper were very good. The neighborhood, Xochimilco, with it's stone streets and weaving workshops, is an excellent place to stay, out of the city traffic and noise, but easy walking distance to the Centro.

We had a wonderful stay at your home and you have obviously devoted much thought and effort into ensuring a positive experience for visitors at Casa Palomita. The ten minute walk to the City center was very pleasant along Los Arcos.

Manager Lu was great and very helpful. I'm sure our travels will bring us back to Oaxaca in the next year or two and I hope that it works out to stay at your place when we return to Oaxaca.

“Absolutely perfect! Better than my high expectations.”
Reviewed 16 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Casa Palomita was even better than my expectations, and my expectations were pretty high (based on the website and recommendations)! As Oaxaca is one of my favorite places on earth, I rented la casa for the month of October as a gift to myself for my 70th birthday. I invited various friends to come down to share at different times during the month. I have spoken with several of these friends and we cannot come up with even one complaint or suggestion for improvement. The location is excellent, in a quiet and historical neighborhood a 20 minute walk from the zocalo. The house is beautifully designed and furnished (that's an understatement), Lu, the on-site manager, is delightful - always helpful, never intrusive. We didn't cook much (only guacamole and margaritas most evenings, and the occasional breakfast), but the kitchen is fully equipped. Plenty of hot water. Pochote Market - just a couple of blocks away - on Fridays and Saturdays, a great place for breakfast, buying good breads, goat cheese/yogurt, flowers, and visiting (and buying from) the weavers who do their magic on the way up to Pochote. The information provided at la casa is excellent. For restaurants, Itanoni (a pleasant walk to the nearby neighborhood of Reforma) was a favorite, as was La Quinque just on the way towards the zocalo). We generally took public buses to nearby sites (Lu is a good resource for this) so did not use drivers, but Don Vidal provides an excellent and reliable taxi service for the airport, etc. In summary, my entire experience with renting and enjoying Casa Palomita, from beginning the process with Maria to saying adios to Lu, was nothing but pleasant. My only concern is whether or not it will be available for my next visit to Oaxaca!

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.
