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.

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,...More

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...More

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...More

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...More

About the neighbourhood
Casa Murguia is located between Avenida Juarez and Pino Suarez on the east side of the historic centre of Oaxaca city. No buses run along Calle Murguia making it exceptionally quiet for the city. Casa Murguia's location is unbeatable, it offers easy walking everywhere in the historic center. Pedestrian walking streets begin only 2.5 blocks from Casa Murguia. It is only 5 blocks to the magnificent Santo Domingo church and the ethnoboticanical garden. World-class museums and libraries are within 6 blocks, as are highly recommended restaurants. There's complete grocery shopping at the authentic Merced market 5 blocks away. The produce is fresh and seasonal, the meat and cheese can be trusted and the tortillas are handmade! But right at the corner you can stock up on cold beer and sodas, fruits, basic vegetables and dry-goods. Wine is available a block away. There's a good bakery and liquor store 3 blocks south on Independencia. A top-notch private clinic/hospital is only 2 blocks away with English-speaking doctors. And if you are heading out of town you'll probably be going into the Valle de Tlacolula or towards Ocotlan and this is easy with the casa on the east side of the centro. There is a safe private driveway for the exclusive use of renters and the owners.
