Sunrise House And Solar Heated Pool
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 an extra single if necessary; it has a balcony with great views and a study area. There is a twin bedroom (2 beds) 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 - for guests themselves - from Mon to Saturday for a reasonable $30 weekly). Those who come with children need not worry about the pool 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.
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 neighboring 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 is $20 per week, and you can arranged to have delicious mexican food cooked at your house so you can gather some recipes, baby sitting can also be arranged at very reasonable rates. We can also arranged for you to be picked up and delivered to the airport for around $25.00 which is less than an airport taxi (please specify if you want this to ensure this service is available) and also transported to and from to other sites in and around Oaxaca.
We are a British/Mexican couple who have lived in San Felipe for 14 years and are a convenient source of local knowledge. Sergio is an anthropologist and musicologist. Judith is a psychologist, anthropologist and painter. Sofia and Olivia are our two wonderful, bi-lingual, daughters of 16 and 12 years of age. We will be on sabbatical from August 2013 for a year and Gaby, our bilingual housekeeper and cleaner will manage the house.
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 colorful 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.
We know many families who have come to Oaxaca for a year with and without children of various ages who have adapted to school life and learnt Spanish with amazing ease (there are bi-lingual schools though visitors prefer to immerse their children in Spanish speaking schools.
Please be sure not to generalise travel advisories about Mexico. Oaxaca is safe despite problems in other areas of the country.
