Incredible Place

Guesthouse (B&B / Inn) Other - Entire Rental (Home / Vacation Rental / Self-Catering / Timeshare / Tiny Home) City

Discover our enchanting houses.

We tie up with some unique operators for some walking tours. Depending on the guest’s interests, we can also connect them to some amazing creative workshops like traditional natural dyeing and weaving. We are more than happy to guide our guests for things to do and see around El Diablo.

Philosophy

Oaxaca has so much culture to offer and our house reflects and shares a lot of this culture. We showcase our love for our city’s rich cultural heritage.

We try to make the place feel as comforting and homely to our guests as possible. I (Maria) make sure to meet and spend time with each guest and recommend places or experiences in the city, if required.

We also create our own products, such as homemade jams, our own brand of mezcal, as well as body lotion. We have a small in-house store where we sell them as well as some other local products

History

I was traveling on the coast of Jalisco when I was still living at my parent’s house, and they were away for the weekend, so I decided to invite every traveler I encountered over to my home in Guadalajara, filled up the rooms with cool people and made them breakfast in the morning. My mom (Ana) and I, with a beautiful team of friends, created the whole concept. Thanks to the amazing support of every one of them and their wonderful ideas, the B&B opened on the exact date as planned, December 31, 2010

Mission & Vision

We constantly strive to preserve and share our traditional Oaxacan culture with our guests. From preserving the traditional Oaxacan design of the house to our house decor, the food we serve, and the partners we collaborate with- we make sure to align everything we do to our core values.

We are constantly thinking about how we can improve our processes to help the environment around us. Simple things can make a big impact. For example, we provide a bucket for guests to collect the cold water whilst they’re waiting for the shower to heat up, so we can reuse the water for cleaning the floors. We collaborate with locals and aim to reduce our carbon footprint.

With our example, having little details such as buckets in the showers to catch the water that falls while it’s heating up, we make sure that our guests feel attracted to respect and be conscious about using, reducing, and saving.
