My husband and I travelled to Oaxaca and stayed at Casa Machaya. Alvin is an amazing and very hospitable host. He shared his experience and knowledge with us on a variety of topics with respect to Oaxacan culture. His recommendations for food and places were always great. The room was very comfortable and the house is beautiful and has a...

My wife and I stayed at Casa Machaya and had an unforgettable visit to Oaxaca. The accommodations are beautiful and comfortable, Tito the dog befriended us and above all, Alvin so generously shared his boundless knowledge of Oaxacan culture and history with us at every step. What we learned about the indigenous communities, mezcal producers and regional foods truly enriched...

My partner and I climbed into the taxi at the airport, handed the Casa Machaya address and directions to the driver, and gazed around as we made the trip across the city and up into the hills on the outskirts of the city. This was our first trip to Oaxaca and it was much larger than we'd anticipated! We felt...

Its always a guess when choosing a place to stay. No different here but our choice was rewarded with a very comfortable apartment with the greatests of hosts. We chose two days of touring with Alvin which gave us highlights that we would never have seen had we found local tours. You won't find anyone more knowledgeable than Alvin about...

It's difficult to say adequately how much our time in Oaxaca meant to us. Leaving there has been like leaving a loved one. We could not have been happier with the lodging, food, and activities, including the rides with Arlene and the tours with Alvin. Arlene and Alvin's hospitality was outstanding -- we felt right at home and loved virtually...

We totally enjoyed our six day stay at Casa Machaya. Alvin and Arlene were very generous hosts. Alvin has done a great deal of research in to the cultural landscape of the Oaxaca area and has written many articles for publication. Downtown Oaxaca is a stone's throw away. There was an abundance of space both indoors and out for us.

Tucked in the northern Oaxaca city hills of Loma Linda, we enjoyed several days in the gracious and beautiful Starkman bed and breakfast, Casa Machaya. The accomodations were very clean, spacious, private and welcoming. Why in fact, I celebrated a milestone birthday while there and found a cake and dozens of balloons welcoming me (sweet surprise on the part of...

I didn't find Casa Machaya by looking at tripadvisor, and in fact haven't gone to the site before now. I came to Casa Machaya because for years I have seen the ad for the B & B in an antiques magazine I read, Upper Canadian Showcase, and the articles in it that Alvin Starkman writes. So I came to Oaxaca...

More than a room, this lovely apartment in the near north of Oaxaca City offers vistas from every window of mountain ranges in the distance with smaller peaks nearby flirting in their shadows. Spacious accommodations of huge bedroom, large bathroom, fully stocked eat-in outdoor kitchen that spills onto a large sunny patio. All this tumbles downhill into a verdant valley...

This was my second time staying at Casa Machaya, and Alvin and Arlene couldn't have been more gracious hosts. They drove me into town, offered me coffee in the morning and gave me loads of suggestions on things to see and do. The house is a little further away from Oaxaca City's Centro (10 minute cab ride), but the neighborhood...

“Oaxaca December evenings are CHILLY so you will need warm clothes once the sun goes down, and in the early morning! I brought a down sweater with me and it was perfect. There is a portable space heater for the bedroom, and extra blankets.”

“We stayed in the main guest level. Since we were a couple only, we didn't use the small extra bedroom that's part of it. If you are travelling with another couple or older children, rent the second independent suite upstairs (which Arlene showed us for future reference).”
