Staying at the "Architect's House" is wonderful in every way we can think to mention. We were met at the airport by the owner's local representative, driven to the house and oriented into a graceful architectural wonder. The location is private and quiet; the house is a gem of steel, glass, concrete, wood and light. All amenities, including hot water, kitchen, wi-fi, bedding and linens are top quality. The private gardens and roof top patio are delightfully well conceived and integrated in to the marvelous overall design.
In addition to fine housekeeping, we have engaged the wonderful maid for laundry service, to cook a chili relleno dinner, and to provide an upcoming cooking class for us and a few friends. We only hope that by providing this honest rave review, we don't make it too difficult for us to rent again in the future! On a scale of one-to-five, the "Architect's House" is clearly a ten.
The design of this house enhanced our experience of Oaxaca by providing a gracious bracket to our days: a place to enjoy leisurely four-cups-of-coffee mornings at the start of our day and a place to look forward to returning to in the evenings at the end of our days exploring Oaxaca. In addition, it is conveniently located near a wonderful local outdoor market and is within easy walking distance of the historic district.

The cost of renting individual rooms in a hotel was the main reason to find a whole house to stay in Oaxaca. The Architect's House was great with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, rooftop terrace, full kitchen, dining and living rooms, and pretty patios. The neighbors were wonderful and we were lucky to enjoy beautiful piano concerts many evenings from our closest neighbor. Easy access to the walking street, Alcala, that runs down to the zocalo and the cathedral. Would definitely love to stay here again!
This house is an exceptional value. Very clean, well tended, even comes with twice/week maid. It is architecturally a jewel, too. Bonus: it has a 360 degree view, accessible rooftop with lounge chair, table, laundry, plants. It's a walk from everything you want to do in Oaxaca. It has a great Mercado very close by. Everything described is accurate.
