We have given our Bed and Breakfast the name Ollin (O-leen). The
word in náhuatl means movement of the heavens or celestial sky.
Ollin refers to a location that is mystical or magical, and you
can find its symbol in the very center of the Aztec calendar.
Your hosts at Ollin are Judith Reyes Lopez, whose family has
lived in Oaxaca since before the arrival of Cortez, and her
husband Jon McKinley, officially from San Diego, California but
now a resident of Oaxaca.
Ollin was designed and constructed in 1961 by well known
architect Enrique Esesarte. At the time of its construction
Ollin was one of the most luxurious casas in Oaxaca. The casa
now contains 10 lovely rooms, each with its private bath. Three
rooms have terraces with a view of the pool, four rooms are on
the other side of the pool (as seen in the photo) and share a
private patio. Each room is distinct and individually decorated.
All rooms have access to the rooftop terrace with a view of
Santo Domingo. We now give you the opportunity to experience
Oaxaca at it’s finest.
Start off your mornings off with a breakfast—Oaxaca style.
Sophie, our cook for many years will fix you a regional hot
breakfast, if you so desire. If you prefer a light meal you will
have a choice between fresh fruits, juices, breads, and, of
course, coffee, tea, or the local favorite, Mexican Hot
Chocolate. You may choose to eat in the dining room, on the
covered patio by the pool, or on the tranquil garden patio.
Our staff is friendly, helpful and committed to making your stay
enjoyable in all respects.
