What Past Guests Are Saying
Christmas in Oaxaca
Oaxaca City Oaxaca State Mexico
We are a family of 4 with a son 18 and daughter 20 we travelled to Oaxaca for Christmas in 2012. What a great time of year to see Oaxaca.
Casa Murgia is a home with several rental suites in Oaxaca city. The courtyard has a mature garden and a beautiful pool with sea creature design in the tile for when you want to relax. The home is centrally located and is walking distance to the Zocalo. There is a local market, Merced market, about a 15 minute walk straight down the street. Be sure to purchase the spicy peanut , garlic and chili snack mix at the market if you go..Great with beer , trust me you will be hooked. A corner store for quick supplies, beer, sandwiches and fruit. There is a supermarket on the same road before you get to Merced market . A taco stand was parked in front of the corner store every so often, it was always packed. We did not get a chance to try them but they sure looked popular. Though we did not use the public buses this time there is a bus that runs down the side street right there.
The unit we stayed in had a full kitchen, king size bed, full bath and separate room with 2 twin beds for the family. There was a table and chairs in the unit however most times we enjoyed and sitting at the in the courtyard in front of our unit. Bibi the property Hostess is bilingual English/Spanish. Bibi helped us arrange cabs and could point us in whatever direction we headed that day. Through Casa Murgia we went to Rancho Pitaya and enjoyed a horseback ride in the valley. See my review of Rancho Pitaya.
Casa Murgia is your home away from home. We found Casa Murgia quiet though right in the city. A great place to make your base while exploring Oaxaca. You can spot Casa Murgia from down the block, it is the house on the street with a garden of banana trees out front! We recommend this accommodation and would definitely return to Casa Murgia .
It was like home.
The service was amazing. The house keeper was very sweet, always available, diligent, and informative. The property was peaceful and beautiful. The house felt like it was a little resort. It felt safe. Our group looked forward to going "home" each night. The location was very good. close to Zocalo. Easy walk to & from. Also, there's a few little stores nearby (walking distance) and also bakeries and coffe shops nearby as well.
The only thing I didn't like was the mosquitos. But a little bug spray can fix that!

Mosquitos come with the first rains in the spring and are gone by fall. All the windows have screens so if doors are kept shut mosquitos shouldn't be a problem in the sleeping areas. The mosquitos in this area carry no disease just the itch that comes with all m. bites. I'm from Canada and the mosquitos in Oaxaca don't hold a candle to the vicious things that swarm northern Ontario.
Fantastic location and incredible space
The Bird of Paradise suite was so much space that my travelling companion and I never felt we were impinging on each other! It stretched out along the pool and garden areas, with lots of windows. The beds were firm and the furniture comfortable, and it was very quiet. The location was an easily walkable distance from the zocalo, shops and restaurants. We had a laundromat across the street and a small market on the same street. We soon met the other guests who were happy to share travel tips and even bird identifications! A great home away from home!My only quibble would be the small hot water heater for the bathroom, we had to shower quickly.

Iris, I appreciate your comment on the water heater. It is new but just doesn't perform like the others that are installed at Casa Murguia. Time to change it.
Excelent stay in Oaxaca
We stayed for two weeks and it was by far the best "home away from home" experience I've had. The place is absolutely gorgeous, the pictures here barely make it justice, and the way we were taken care of by the owner and the housekeeper was excellent.
Definitely staying there in future trips.
