“an excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 25 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Casa Palomita is a warm and comfortable place to stay. It is well furnished, beds are very comfortable, The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and cutlery. The house is located in a safe neighborhood with stores and parks very close by. The walk to the zocolo takes about 20 minutes which is an easy stroll.

Maria, the owner is very responsive. The house book she sends if you make a reservation is filled with useful information. Lu is onsite in a separate small house. She is delightful and is able to answer questions you may have, as well as make arrangements for any small fixes you may need...ie, we identified a small problem with the washing machine and it was shortly fixed.

“Fifth great winter staying at Casa Palomita”
Reviewed 22 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

We just arrived home after our fifth winter sojourn at Casa Palomita. Trying to stretch it out a littel each year, we spent six weeks there in Jan-Feb. All its virtues are intact--there are few better feelings than escaping winter in Boston at noon, and arriving to Lu's warm greeting that evening in Oaxaca. Every year, Maria and Lu add some pleasing artistic new touches: a cactus garden on the patio this year. Oaxaca retains its charms as a "second" home, and we continue to be grateful to Maria for sharing it with us.

“Loved Casa Palomita”

person found this review helpful

I absolutely loved staying at Casa Palomita. Everything was completely thought out. The layout of the house was perfect for having guests come down and stay. I told my friends I would love to duplicate the layout in my retirement home.

Vidal, the driver you recommended is a sweet man. We used him often and he came over a few nights for inter-cambio and help with his homework. Thank you for that introduction. Lu was great--very unobtrusive but really helpful with any questions I had.

I would rent your place again in a heartbeat. I already looked at this year's availability and there are not a lot of openings because the place is so great!

“This house lacked nothing!”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We loved our time in Casa Palomita. It truly is beyond compare as far as we are concerned.
We were astounded at the quality of the appointments and good taste of the owner.The kitchen was completely functional, it lacked nothing.The house is a gorgeous restoration and extremely comfortable. Lu ( the caretaker) is such a sweet, hardworking young woman with a great sense of humor. She was really helpful. Also Flor amazed me with her energy. Wish I could have someone as good clean my home. We are thankful to the owner for making such a lovely place available.

Liked best: The beautiful courtyard
Liked least: Having to get used to the cultural propensity to use firecrackers (loud ones) day and night.
