We stayed at Villa Maria for one month with our 3 and 5 year old kids. We discovered VM from the Moon guidebook. From our initial e-mail contact to our check-out, Maria was very professional and gracious. VM met all our family needs. We felt very welcome and safe. Loved being in an ordinary, working-class neighborhood rather than the more... More

I stayed for extended periods at Villa Maria in July and December of 2009. I rented a nice three bedroom apartment in July; however, if you wanted to make use of the other two, a fifty dollar fee was charged for each one. It is a quiet complex even though there are two bars on each end of the street.... More

Villa Maria is a quaint apartment complex that offers a wonderful space that opens to a beautiful garden patio. My family spent a few days with Maria, the owner and caretaker, and truly enjoyed ourselves. The property is located close enough to safely walk to the city center or zocalo, while still being quiet enough to peacefully sleep through the... More

Villa Maria is all this site says it is -- a delightful and very affordable place to rent an apartment with kitchen, living room, bathroom and two bedrooms. It´s been an excellent choice for myself and my two friends for a two-week stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful without being intrusive, and the apartment is simple and comfortable.... More

A hidden gem in Oaxaca City. Senora Maria is a gracious and thoughtful hostess. She is a walking tourist information agent. Just ask her, she will tell you of things that are not in the travel brochures, where, when, how to etc. We had our 20th anniversary there, and somewhere in our previous communication with Maria nwe mentioned this. On... More

Not much to add to the other reviews which have said it all, but wanted to confirm that Villa Maria is everthing that others have said. Fantastic rooms with everything you could need, secure location in quiet area but only 10-15 mins walk to the centre. We were ill in our first week there and Maria was like a concerned... More

The accommodations, the proprietoress, Maria Garcia, and the staff are excellent...and our neighbours are welcoming people, very helpful to newcomers. Ramses, the dog, is a... More

If you are looking for comfortable, secure and charming accomodations for a week to a month or more, then Villa Maria just might be the ticket. We have stayed there everytime we visit Oaxaca since 1994. Maria ia a charming and attentive host, who understands the needs of foreign tourists in Mexico. Her apartments are spacious and come equipped with... More
