The space

Casa Xano Xano is located half an hour from the colonial center of Oaxaca in the beautiful village of San Agustin Etla, in the foothills of the Sierra Norte mountains. The house is high on a hill overlooking the village, valley & the mountains in the distance.
Our home has two completely separate apartments. The guest apartment has two bedrooms with queen size beds, each with French doors opening on to a fountain courtyard. There is a large fully equipped eat in kitchen with a full water purification system & a beautiful view of the pool. The comfortable living room has a flat screen TV with cable & opens on to a private terrace with sweeping views of mountains. WiFi internet is available throughout the apartment.
There is a large pool house with outdoor living room/dining room with BBQ & exceptional views over the mountains, perfect for cocktails & sunsets.
It's most convenient to have a car, however we are only a 3 minute walk from the colectivos (communal taxis)which will take you in to Oaxaca for 12 pesos.
Basic shopping is available in the village as well as local comedors(small restaurants) Not far away is Etla which has a wonderful daily market, really worth a visit on Wednesdays.
San Agustin is home to Centro de las Artes de San Agustin, known as CASA an art center with revolving exhibits & classes in a beautiful historical building. Next door is a wonderful paper factory selling a variety of paper products. They will also gladly walk you through the process. There are miles of incredible trails through the hills behind the house which give spectacular 360 degree views.
We ask for a 3 day minimum stay. Unfortunately we are not a house for small children. There is weekly maid service with more days available & laundry service for an additional fee.
We can arrange for you to be picked up at the airport for 300 pesos or from town for 200 pesos with an English speaking driver.
San Agustin is an authentic Mexican village. Birthdays are celebrated with fireworks, funerals are accompanied by bands & roosters & dogs(we have two) celebrate it all. It is a beautiful & magical place. We are always happy to offer advice & give directions & do all we can to make your stay a memorable one.
Hasta pronto!

The place is even more beautiful than the photos. Penny and Victor are superb hosts who went out of their way to make sure that our stay was memorable, introducing us to extraordinary local artisans and kind and helpful people of all types. We will return as quickly as we can.

I won't repeat all the positive, great things that others wrote, we can just underwrite everything and thank Penny and Victor for being wonderful hosts in a magic surrounding. We have never lived in such an "artful" surrounding, although my Mascha is artist herself and came here …

The minute we arrived at Penny and Victor's house in San Agustin Etla, my sister and I felt like Alice in Wonderland; we were totally submerged by admiration and joy in front of such beauty, exotic decor, amazing colours, vegetation, beautiful trees, flowers, green, pink, yellow…

My girlfriend Angelyne and I decided to spend a week of June in Oaxaca. We arrived at Penny and Victors house not familiar with the area or surroundings. Instantly amazed at their stunning retreat we knew that we made the right booking. Penny and Victor greeted us with open arms,…

Penny and Victor were excellent hosts and made sure our stay was as relaxing and stress-free as possible. They went the extra mile for us everyday, driving us to a pick up point for a cooking class, sharing a drink on our first day and arranging both of our airport transfers. We …

Casa Xano Xano is an exquisite home and Penny and Victor are sincerely lovely hosts. After spending a week or so in Oaxaca City, we needed a break from noise and diesel fumes for a bit. San Agustin Etla turned out to be the perfect place to stay: a refreshingly un-touristed villa…

I have no words to describe how beautiful the house is and how nice is Penny, Victor and Edgar. The House had every nice detail you can imagine, fresh flowers all over the house, and also when we checked in there was food for us and even a bottle of wine. There should be a lis…
