“We loved the Casa Murguia, it was a like a lovely home and garden.”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Casa Murguia is a very special place for very special guests. We were treated like family and many people stay for a month or more. It was like coming home and we understand how our other friends recommend it so highly as a secret and wonderful place. We loved our stay.

It is so good to know that Casa Murguia felt like home for you. I personally decorated each room in each bungalow with art and textiles I'd collected during the fifteen years I had a gallery and craft store in Oaxaca.

“Heavenly peace and great beauty”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I have stayed in several of these apartments since 2011, and all have their virtues. Each has its own patio, so there is privacy. However, if you wish to socialize a bit with the other visitors, there is that opportunity. The property is lushly planted, with five apartments around a courtyard with pool. Since I know Oaxaca well, I return for the warmth of its people, the increasing number of attractions (from new shops and restaurants to newly open ruins in the countryside) and above all I go to Casa Murguia for its welcoming calm. Mary Jane, the owner, knows the entire valley around the city -- so it seems to me -- and can tell you how to get to wherever you want to go. She has the best drivers, and she has suggestions that even a longtime visitor to Oaxaca will be intrigued by. The property manager, Maria Antonia, is one of my favourite people, and she provides immaculate conditions with real friendliness. People who stay here are, in my experience, intelligent and interesting people; I have much enjoyed this social aspect of the place. On the other hand, I have been blissfully alone, just soaking up the sun or planning my next excursion.

It is especially gratifying to have renters return. I've lived in Oaxaca for 30 years, have owned Casa Murguia for almost 20 years and being able to walk out the door to begin exploring the historic centre is the essence of the Oaxaca experience. It is so good to know, that for you, both the casa and the city are wearing well. Thank you once again.

“Great location to tour Oaxaca City and Valley”

As a family of four we stayed at Casa Murguia for a week while touring Oaxaca. Location and neighbourhood is excellent for both historic city centre and driving out into Oaxaca Valley (car parking availability is big plus). Landscaping and pool are delightful. Maria Antonia provides great daily service to the apartments and Mary Jane is a fountain of knowledge about building the best possible agenda for your time in the city and region.
Recommended if you like the flexibility of self catering location within Oaxaca.

Traveling with children can be a challenge. The Aguacate casita, a five room bungalow with a generous outdoor poolside patio gives families ( and couples ) space for everyone. I'm glad Casa Murguia worked out for you and hope you'll choose the casa again on your next trip to Oaxaca! Thank you.

“What a beautiful property”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

I found Casa Murguia while looking for a vacation rental property on Trip Advisor. I was looking for a place for a total of 5 adults, 1 teen, and 1 infant. I read the other reviews and sent a message through Trip Advisor to the property owner. Mary Jane responded back very quickly and offered suggestions for what we could rent to accommodate my party. We emailed back and forth and we agreed on the dates and which rooms we would rent. We rented the Primavera Villa and the Arcoiris Room. My step-daughter, son-in-law and infant grandson stayed in the Arcoiris Room. My wife, son (14), step-son (18), and myself stayed in the Primavera Villa. Wonderful accommodations for all of us. The bedding was clean, the rooms were clean and well maintained. The pool was wonderful on a warm afternoon. And the location, just a couple of blocks walk to the Macedonio Alcala and the Zocalo, it can't be beat. The only recommendation I would have, and this is just personal and doesn't change anything about our stay, is that the coffee maker in the Primavera Villa is to small. It only makes 5 cups at a time. When there are 5 adults that all like coffee, this can be a pain to have to keep making pot after pot. A larger 12 cup coffee maker would be great, but that's just my family. Again this was a wonderful stay and I would go back and stay at Casa Murguia in a heart beat.

Thank you for taking the time to write this insightful review. We always ask guests if everything is OK, needs to fixed or changed. I'm sorry you didn't let us know about the need for a larger coffee maker as there was, in fact, a larger one available. Oh well, next time! …… I hope.

“Excellent location and service”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at Casa Murguia for 7nights. What a perfect little oasis to return to after walking through this gem of a city. The apartment was very comfortable and super clean. Maria Antonia keeps the rooms and grounds in great shape. The pool was very refreshing. The gardens are lovely. A nice place to sit at the end of the day listening to all the lovely birds singing the evensong.

I've always felt like Casa Murguia is a retreat from the exciting activities the city of Oaxaca holds. It's wonderful to explore the historic center on foot but it's also, in my opinion, a must to have a quiet place with outdoor living to relax and enjoy Oaxaca's near-perfect year round climate. Thank you for choosing my vacation rental; I hope you'll return.
