I stayed here with my adult daughter and teenage son for a week in June, 2014. We had a wonderful stay. My son and I shared the main guest room adjacent to the outdoor kitchen. My daughter stayed upstairs in a separate bedroom with its own bath. The set up is very private and the space is huge. Alvin and... More

My husband and I stayed for a little over 2 weeks at Casa Machaya. Alvin and Arlene are great hosts, and after living for several years in Oaxaca they really can recommend all sorts of things to do and see. Their house is beautiful with all sorts of interesting local art throughout. Alvin's tours are really interesting as well; he... More

Last year, my wife and I spent the entire month of February at Casa Machaya, and booked the month of February 2014 before returning home to Canada as we were so very impressed by our accommodations and by the friendliness and expert service provided by Alvin and Arlene Starkman. This year, however, my wife was unable to make the trip,... More

Like living in a museum of fine mexican art. Made to feel at home and welcome by Alvin and Arlene. Just minutes to downtown by taxi. Alvin's knowledge of the area is superb and a day tour is a must. Alvin is fluent in spanish and knows all the special eating establishments. A very safe and enjoyable vacation at Casa... More

Casa Machaya is a beautiful home in a lovely, residential neighborhood of Oaxaca. Our family stayed in the very nice, well maintained guest suite (one of two accommodations available) consisting of a large combined bedroom/sitting room; a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed; bathroom with shower; and a large, lovely patio that also serves as the kitchen and dining area....

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Machaya Oaxaca Bed and Breakfast. Casa Machaya is a beautiful home in an interesting location. During our stay we made a trip to visit boutique mezcal distilleries with Alvin Starkman, which was fascinating. However, a subsequent visit to artesanias Casa Santiago with Alvin was the highlight of our trip to Oaxaca. We had... More

Alvin and Arlene have set up their bed and breakfast very thoughtfully, with as much privacy or access to the hosts as you like. Only one family at a time stays in the lower 2 floors of their beautiful home, with a private outdoor kitchen and patio, and spectacular views. They are very knowledgeable and helpful about what to do... More

Stayed 17 days beginning of November at Casa Machaya in Oaxaca. Had a lovely time. Patio overlooking the lights of the city, well equipped kitchen that we prepared breakfast and half our dinners in. Large bedroom, DVD equipped widescreen TV. It was as comfortable as home but with a setting far more exotic. Would return in a flash Alvin and... More

I recently had the pleasure of being in Oaxaca for a working seminar on Mezcal and stayed at Casa Machaya. What a neat hidden treasure this B & B is. Situated on a gorgeous hillside overlooking a small valley and the mountains that surround Oaxaca. The Casa is large, and completely furnished with all necessities that one could want for... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Casa Machaya for 10 days at the beginning of September, and we had the best time, thanks to Alvin and Arlene (and their adorable dog Tito). My girlfriend had been to Oaxaca before but the trip was a first for me, and Casa Machaya was the perfect choice for accommodation: close enough to downtown... More
