I didn't find Casa Machaya by looking at tripadvisor, and in fact haven't gone to the site before now. I came to Casa Machaya because for years I have seen the ad for the B & B in an antiques magazine I read, Upper Canadian Showcase, and the articles in it that Alvin Starkman writes. So I came to Oaxaca essentially because of the ad I had been reading for ages. What a great decision, both coming to Oaxaca and staying at Casa Machaya with Alvin and Arlene, great hosts, great resources, and very helpful, welcoming and friendly. The first email I got in response to my inquiry set out all the information about the Casa including price, amenities, distance to downtown, free daily rides to anywhere downtown, and even measurements of every room. There were no surprises, except pleasant ones. Alvin and Arlene essentially made the vacation for us. Their welcoming nature, always available to give advice about touring the villages, ruins and other sights, restaurant recommendations, etc, etc, etc. What a great experience for us. I cannot imagine it being as good had we stayed elsewhere.
