The apartments are very spacious and clean. The furniture is old style but decent. The inner patio is small but beautiful green. Limited street noise during the morning and evening rush hours the remaining hours are quiet. Maria is a nice woman. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is pretty good. A secure car park is right around... More

This is a great place to stay near the center of Oaxaca City. It is a very good value and very convenient to the Zócalo, transport, and other attractions of the city. The $20 we paid to have wi-fi in our apartment was well worth it. Our apartment was well furnished, comfortable, and clean. Maria is a wonderful hostess. She... More

My wife and I spent nine nights at Villa Maria in Oaxaca. Prior to flying to Oaxaca, Maria provided us with very explicit information on how to travel from Mexico City Airport to Oaxaca by bus and how to find her place once we arrived. The apartment was cool, clean and totally furnished and nicely decorated. Maria was the perfect... More

If you are looking for a convenient, clean, friendly environment, Villa Maria is a fabulous place to stay. Maria is a gracious hostess and the staff were amazing. We stayed for 21/2 months and felt very at home from day one. Our 2 bedroom apartment had easy access to the beautiful flower filled courtyard and the roof garden which was... More

Villa Maria is an affordable and great place to stay. The apartments are clean and the staff is attentive. Conveniently located to the Zocolo, we were able to walk to the markets, buses, and great restaurants. I highly recommend Villa Maria.

We stayed for 5 nights in a 3 bedroom apartment but used only two of them. The kitchen was fully equipped so we could do our own cookings. Oaxaca in april is very hot but thanks to the plants in the patio the temperatur in Villa Maira is much less. All rooms have fans. The rooms are very clean. We... More

My husband and I came to Oaxaca to study - TESOL course and Spanish. We booked a room at Villa Maria in October and based on what Maria told us and the reviews, we thought we had just the place we needed for six weeks. Maria told us that the apartment fronted on Calle Arteaga and that it could be... More

My wife and I have stayed at Villa Maria many times usually for 3 months. We lucked up on our first stay there because it was sight unseen and we had never been to Oaxaca. We were greeted by helpful neighbors who became friends and pleasant surrondings. The location we know now is second to none in convenience. The staff... More

My partner and I have been staying for extended periods at Willa Maria's for several years. When we first discovered VM, we were living in another apartment in the city. As soon as we saw the tranquil courtyard and roof garden, we felt at home, and moved as quickly as possible. Our first visit, we moved into one of the... More
