Lovely, clean room in a spacious apartment. Has its own round table and chairs, and my guests have used this as a computer/study center or a place to enjoy a private cup of tea. The clean, shared bathroom is right next to your room.

The apartment is cleaned once a week, and that includes washing the floor and wiping off surfaces in your room. I provide you folded, clean sheets once a week, (50 peso charge) or you can wash them yourself on the patio.
Clean up dishes, counter, pots & pans after cooking, and general tidiness and consideration. NO SMOKING on the premises, parties, disturbances (we have close neighbors). No immoderate alcohol. If you have concerns, or questions, communicate. Otherwise, enjoy yourself!
Greetings from Oaxaca! I am a grandma of two lovely teenage granddaughters who live in California. I'm also a retired college instructor, a visual artist, and most of all these days, a writer. Five things I can't live without are good books, great films and cable TV series (I download them on my laptop), music (eclectic taste), and walks around Oaxaca.
On the visual arts side I have been a needle felter, painter, portrait artist, photographer, and paper mache enthusiast, and I still have plenty of art supplies waiting if I ever have time to return to them!
On the literary and reading side -- I am writing 3 books! The first is almost finished as a first draft, 100,000 words! Much editing to come. The second is a book of poetry, and is essentially complete. The third is in the research and outline stage, and is always in the back of my mind. My reading these days tends to support my writing, but in general I love autobiography/biography, history, mysteries, and fiction.
I've been all over Europe and have explored Oaxaca and Chiapas, but there are many more places I want to go and return to! Turkey, Wales, Ireland, Morocco, South Africa, Vietnam, New Zealand, Hawaii are all on my list.
I used to be an avid hiker, walker, and camper but those days are mostly behind me now. I still love to get out in nature for the day with my family, especially on my bi-yearly visits to California.
One very important thing in my life right now is my young Mexican roommate. A kind group of people in the States have gathered around her financially so that she can attend college and get her degree in computer engineering. My contribution is that she lives with me rent free and helps out when she can. You will get to know her a little when you are here -- though she is mostly at school or studying.
We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our home!
