The space

With vistas spanning the mountains behind and views of the best sunsets in Oaxaca across the valley below, you will never want to leave this country paradise. Casa El Barco was built years ago to capture the cool breezes and the vistas of the local hills above Oaxaca. Only 20 minutes from downtown Oaxaca, it is the ideal destination for those wishing to take advantage of all the city has to offer while returning home to the quiet and clean air of San Pablo Etla, a traditional Zapotec village.

Built of adobe and decorated in a rustic Mexican style with crafts from all over the state of Oaxaca, the house features modern facilities with an old world charm. El Barco offers outdoor dining, private patios for relaxing, Wi-Fi indoors and out, comfortable beds, gardens filled with flowering plants and fruit trees, and a shared communal in-ground pool with palapa.

Available for the first time ever as a vacation destination, this house has been a private family home until this year and has all the appointments of a house that has been lived in and loved.

El barco is a dream. The grounds and house are beautiful. The pool and countryside are breathe taking. We have stayed twice and hope for many many more. Perfect for two couples and even a fifth wheel.
