"I stayed at both of Anthony’s apartments in Oaxaca. The 2 bedroom and the 3 bedroom in June of 2015. Both apartments are spacious and beautiful.
The 2 bedroom has wonderful sliding doors that lead out to a very large patio where you can overlook the entire city of Oaxaca. There is even a full dining table and chairs out there for meals outside enjoying the beautiful Oaxaca weather.
The 3 bedroom has a wonderful roof top terrace complete with a covered dining area. The windows in the 3 bedroom give you access to the panoramic views of Oaxaca all day and night.
Both apartments have all the amenities you need, cookware, linens, towels, and very comfortable beds. Clean drinking water is provided which is a big deal in Oaxaca as the city water is not safe to drink. I had to work while in Oaxaca and the wi-fi was very consistent as was the cable that had many channels that would play English movies & shows.
Anthony was a wonderful host. He was very responsive from the first time I contacted him all the way until our last day when he was kind enough to arrange for a taxi to take us to the airport. He was available to answer any questions throughout our trip and quick to fix any minor issues we had during our stay. (We had no hot water at first and Anthony was quick to come over and light our gas tank.)
The apartments are up on the hill giving amazing views of the city. The neighborhood is very safe and family friendly. There is an American style coffee shop 100 yards from Anthony’s place with great coffee. There are also various “mini-marts” on the street that carry just about everything you need from beer to milk to eggs to fresh bread & Oaxacan cheese.
Santo Domingo Plaza is less than a mile down the hill. And taxi’s are very cheap to take you back up the hill if you don’t care to walk. We walked most days only taking cabs when it rained or was too hot.
We had a member of our group that is high maintenance when it comes to accommodations being used to staying at very nice hotels and she had no complaints about Anthony’s place. We would go back in a heartbeat!"

"Judith and Sergio's house in San Felipe del Agua was such a treat! It is absolutely gorgeous, just the right size for me and my family (husband and 2 young sons, age 6 months and 4 years). It has everything you need, the kitchen is well-stocked, linens, etc. What we loved the most was the backyard/veranda. Every morning, I would roll out my yoga mat and practice in the morning sun. We were there in October, so the weather was never too hot or too cold (although we did have to use the space heater for 2 nights, but it just made it cozier for us to snuggle up on the couch). The house is really well situated, one street over from where the bus to the center would pick up every 10-15 minutes. Coming back from the center, it would drop us off right in front of the road leading up to the house. Judith and Sergio were really sweet and made sure that we had everything we needed while never being intrusive. Definitely consider this house if you are looking for a long-term rental in Oaxaca."

"We three sisters stayed here for one month. The rooms, baths, and living areas are spacious and comfortable. The pool is convenient with beautiful design and views. Oaxaca can be accessed by public transportation, taxi, or car rental in 20-30 minutes. The village life is a welcome contrast to the noise and stimulation of the big city. Walking, hiking and enjoying the beautiful outdoors is a daily must. American neighbors are friendly and helpful, as are the native staff. We plan to return annually!"

Great location in the heart of central Oaxaca, with beautiful pool and garden.
"My husband and I loved staying at Casa Murguia; I wish I was there now. We certainly look forward to going back and bringing friends with us. It's a perfect location in central Oaxaca, yet with the garden and pool it is quiet, tranquil and quite beautiful. The rooms are well furnished, there's interesting art work and everything is immaculately clean and shows care and maintenance. Mary Jane is helpful and welcoming and housekeeper Maria Antonia was delightful. I would recommend Casa Murguia to anyone going to Oaxaca."
