Two guests can sleep comfortably in the bedroom, two in the downstairs Library, and one more on the deep double couch in the livingroom.

Enjoy the apartment, it is a lovely place to spend time during the day if you need a break from the extenuating energy of the city. Grab a beer and lie down in the hammock for a while!

I love children, but as you can see in the photos, there are spaces between the walls and the plate glass window. Also, our Barragan inspired staircase has no protections which makes it unsuitable for small children. The children and pets in my family do fine, if you think your will be ok too let me know.
Hiring a driver by the hour to drive you around the city or to take you on a half or full day excursion.
Wine and mezcal tastings and pairings can be arranged- please reserve ahead of time, it will be difficult to set up last minute.
I invite you to feel at welcome in our family home and by the same token, hope you will treat my home as you would your own! No drugs, no smoking inside, and only moderate alcohol consumption are permitted.
All smoking must be done outside and we need to keep noise down after 10pm out of consideration for our neighbors!
I am a single parent of a young man that has gone off to college, so he and I decided to post his living space while he is away. We collaborated on the design of this split level apartment with the architect in order to each have separate living spaces and also share lovely meals and evenings on the terrace.
Much of my time is spent in Oaxaca where, together with several mezcal and agave producers we are developing and environmental certification process to fund the large-scale replanting of native, wild agaves on severely eroded lands. We work within geographic watersheds retaining soils and capturing rain water in order to restore natural habitats and in turn provide support for their communities. My piéd a térre in Oaxaca is also listed on dates when I am not there.
When I am home, I love to cook and have a really well equipped kitchen with an endless spice rack and lots of different cookbooks for inspiration. I´m also a really avid reader and there are a lot of books here on every possible subject. You will find a lot of different little places to sit and read at the house.
During the last 20 years I have stayed almost exclusively with friends and friends of friends when I travel. My big house in Oaxaca was always a landing place for everyone and I enjoy hosting and meeting new people very much!
