LA CASITA AT CASA RAAB
Casa Raab is located on 40 acres in the foothills of San Pablo, Etla, bordering the Benito Juarez National Forest. We are 15 minutes drive from Centro Historico of Oaxaca and 20 minutes from Monte Alban.
La Casita is a cozy home with 2 bedrooms, a private bath, and a chimenea. The kitchen is well equipped and adjoins the living space. It's tucked away amongst jacaranda and eucalyptus trees, apart from the other 3 houses on the property. There's a sun drenched patio on which to enjoy your morning coffee and view the mountain tops through the trees.
Please Note: Discounted monthly rates are also available.
Both Casa Grande and La Casita have access to the swimming pool, the patio, the fields, the mineral springs, the onyx mine and the miles of hiking and mountain biking trails.
You can swim, sun, hike, bike and enjoy rich birding (250 species) right here on the property and the surrounding hills. There's also a good ol' fashioned hootenanny with an open mic every week.
Our staff cleans La Casita daily. Laundry services are also available.
The property is equipped with high speed internet and WiFi is available throughout. There are strong 3G cell phone signals through Telcel, Movistar, and Iusacel.
Kids love to play with the animals. We have parrots, turtles, burros, horses, dogs, cats and an occasional rabbit. Casa Raab is the home of Megan House Animal Center, which is dedicated to the ongoing rescue, rehabilitation, and placement of abandoned and needy animals in and around the City of Oaxaca.
Casa Raab grows its own agave plants for mezcal production on site. We have over 50,000 agaves in various fields and we distill several times a year. Ask us about visiting/participating when we are doing "a run" through the still. We also offer tastings of artisanal mescals from various producers around the region including our own.
We're happy to help arrange cultural tours in surrounding villages, shopping trips, birding tours, visits to historic sites, artisan studios and other adventures including mezcal tours off the beaten path.
There are several methods of transportation to centro. We can arrange a taxi with a reputable driver, you can grab a moto taxi to a combi or you can hop the chicken bus.
Our 40 years of experience living in Oaxaca enables us to provide you with a unique and enjoyable vacation. We hope you’ll join us.
The Casa Grande and La Casita renters both have access to the swimming pool during normal hours, with appropriate privacy expected for large groups in the big house.
There is open access to the WiFi system here.
Any visiting pets must be carefully integrated with the animals living on site. Pets should be kept off the furniture, please.
