Imagine your private retreat just steps away from the vibrant beauty of colonial Oaxaca, Mexico

Casa Murguia captures the essence of indoor/outdoor Mexican living. The four self-contained units can be rented together or separately. The Bird of Paradise bungalow  and Aguacate casita  are both one storey, one bedroom living spaces with full kitchen, dining room & living room; the Villa del Sol is a two bedroom unit and the Bougainvillea Bungalow is slightly smaller than the other units, appropriate for one or two people and rents for 10% less.

There are five living spaces situated around the 75 foot long swimming pool, one for Bibi Hinojosa,  the property manager, who lives on the property.

Casa Murguia is a singular Oaxaca home featured in Melba Levick’s book “In a Mexican Garden: Courtyards, Pools and Open Air Living Rooms”.

There is fresh, fun and close-by shopping for groceries within a few blocks. Explore the charming Merced food market just 5 blocks away; this is where the owner does her shopping. You can enjoy your meals in the beautifully decorated dining rooms or outdoors on the patio.

The high adobe walls and trees make Casa Murguia quiet by any standards, guests can’t believe they’re in the heart of the city. All rentals offer the option of a king size bed or 2 single beds in the large, cool bedrooms. If requested the Casita and Bungalow can have an extra single bed added. Casa Murguia can sleep a total of 8 people.

Although the pool becomes the central axis that all the living spaces are built around it is seldom used by the owners who spend most days at their horse farm in the valley of Tlacolula. This is the place for anyone who truly appreciates spacious living, a pool you can actually swim in and a quiet retreat just minutes walking to restaurants, museums and great shopping! Two affectionate cats live on the premises.
