This spacious fully equipped bungalow is one of five at Casa Murguia, all with private poolside patios and hotel-style housekeeping 6 days a week. Enjoy a one-story condo that captures the essence of indoor/outdoor Mexican living.
Casa Murguia captures the essence of indoor/outdoor Mexican living. It was built in the Mexican style of the 1950's with all rentals opening on to private patios surrounded by gardens.
Casa Murguia is rich in design details like hand-painted tiles and original ironwork. It is featured in “In a Mexican Garden: Courtyards, Pools and Open Air Living Rooms”. Owner, Mary Jane Gagnier, ran an arts & craft gallery in Oaxaca for over many years and the casa is decorated with original art and vintage textiles from her collection. The stunning 75 ft. long 4 ft. deep swimming pool is a tranquil focus in the center of the property. Steps lead into a shallower section just 3 ft. deep before dropping down another foot. It is impeccably maintained, heated with solar panels & covered each night to conserve a pleasant temperature. Gardens rich in exotic plants make for fine bird-watching. Visually stunning flora like Birds of Paradise, Plumerias, organ cacti and trumpet vines make the casa a true oasis. The poolside patios are furnished with dining tables & chairs, and comfy chaise lounges for great outdoor living. The high adobe walls and trees make Casa Murguia quiet by any standards. Casa Murguia is a walled property and very safe with two sets of gates that separate it from the street.

The owner, Mary Jane Gagnier maintains a living space on the property but seldom uses it. She does come and go frequently from Casa Murguia but can be better reached via the house telephone or by emailing her. Mary Jane lives at her guest ranch, Rancho Pitaya, just outside of Oaxaca. Ask about a combined stay at both places on your trip to Oaxaca. Maria Antonia is the full time property manager & housekeeping and is happy to help out guests with their needs.

The stunning 75 foot long swimming pool is a zen focus in the center of the property. Exotic gardens rich in native plants attract hummingbirds and vermillion flycatchers. All the pool side patios are furnished with dining tables and chairs, and chaise lounges. 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 ( imagine the rooms at the pricey Camino Real Hotel just 2 blocks away where the windows of the guest rooms open right on to the sidewalk.
This is definitely a quiet place, not a party pad at all. Each bungalow has its own patio and guests are expected to use only their patio although there is a common rooftop terrace.

Originally from Canada but now a Mexican national; I moved to Oaxaca in 1987. I owned an art and craft gallery for years in Oaxaca called La Mano Magica and both the ranch and my place in the city are decorated with art I collected for almost twenty years. I've had horses for sixteen years and relocated the ranch in 2010 to Rojas de Cuauhtemoc, to a gorgeous piece of property on the edge of thousands of acres of pristine communal lands.
I love both my places the ranch in the country and my great 1950's gem in the heart of the historic center. I have always felt that if you are going to live in the city than live in the heart of it, where everything is in walking distance. I adore the ranch nestled on the western edge of the Valle de Tlacolula with views 75 kms. away. Hike, ride, cycle or just watch the sky change and listen to the birds sing.
I wrote a book called "Oaxaca Celebration" published in 2005 by the Museum of New Mexico Press.
In the photo I'm holding the most gigantic corn "tlayuda" (crispy tortilla) that I have ever come across and I found it at a good festival in Oaxaca. Oaxaca has a lot of food festivals!!!
