The house is perfect for a family as we were. Traveling with an 11 month old, we could feel relaxed in the clean and minimal yet elegant and mindful spaces that the mariposa house offers. Would definitely stay again! Not to mention it’s across from the best market for food!
I had an awesome stay. Katerina had everything set up, and check in was super easy. Great location a few blocks from Santo Domingo... very clean, big rooms, good wifi, good water pressure, newly decorated, amazing garden, peaceful vibe. Plus I saved some money cooking in the big kitchen that really had everything:) Overall an easy and relaxing week in Oaxaca.
Mariposa Guest House is the ideal place to stay while traveling in Oaxaca! The location is perfect for exploring the city on foot or catching a tax/collectivo to nearby attractions. It is truly a sanctuary near the heart of centro and an excellent place for rest and relaxation. The guests naturally formed a community which made mariposa guest house feel like home! The toilet broke during my stay, but Katerina had a plumber fixing it within the same day. I can’t wait to visit again!
I couldn’t recommend this wonderful Guest House enough when visiting the beautiful town of Oaxaca. The fabulous hostess, Katerina will make you feel welcome even before you set foot in the door. Katerina was very happy to help us with advice prior to arrival for the busy festive period of Dia de los Muertos and arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport. We were very warmly welcomed by Katerina upon arrival and this set the tone for the rest of the visit. We felt like old friends already! A tranquil and beautiful space, in the perfect location, we loved the delicious daily breakfasts out in the garden catching up on adventures with Katerina and fellow guests. Such a lovely daily ritual. This is not only a Guest House but also healing sessions of Meditation, Reiki, Sound Healing and more are run out of the studio here, by the lovely Katerina. You can feel the healing energy in this space, it is wonderful! I really enjoyed a pre breakfast morning meditation with our hostess and if I’d more time would have loved to have attended her sound healing session. I will be sure to make time for it on my next visit. Katerina is an amazing hostess, a calm and positive person, with so much local knowledge and advice. She kindly extended her hospitality to invite us all to join in festivities within the town, and this was so much appreciated. Thank you Katerina for being the best hostess, we look forward to our next visit to Mariposa Guest House…
I absolutely loved the mariposa guest house! I did a sound healing session and reiki with Katerina. She is incredible! She has such positive energy and welcomes everyone into her space. When I’m Oaxaca I highly recommend staying at her place or doing a session with her.
