“Maravilloso!! Beautiful View! Highly Recommend”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

My sister and I stayed in the Oval house for 2 days in October and I have to say the view was MAGNIFICANT! A little on the rustic side which is what we were looking for..not your typical resort with tooo many people around you. The room was well appointed. The pool felt wonderful after long walks back and forth into town...very refreshing with a great view and so quiet!!
We happened to be the only ones there which made it even more relaxing. Brisma made a delicious dinner for us on our last night..beautiful personality! And the owners Jorge and Alejandra were very accomadating and very friendly couple. This could be classified as a Boutique hotel.
Jorge and Alejandra: Gracias por todo y el diseno de Casa Mermejita es muy raro y muy bonita

My husband and I stayed in the Circle House at Casa Mermejita for four days as part of a 10 day trip to Oaxaca on our honeymoon. This is one of three houses that share a kitchen on Playa Mermejita, very near Mazunte, Oaxaca.

First, the good: the setting is incredible. The view of the ocean from the house is breathtaking and the beach is quite remote and private. We saw many beautiful birds from our patio, and the star-watching was just amazing! The houses are quite nice. Like any tropical setting, there are some ants and an occasional gecko, but the beds have mosquito netting, and we were able to sleep with our doors open without any problems. The staff cleans each house every day, and keeps the place nicely swept and tidy. All in all, you couldn't ask for a better tropical hideaway!

Except..... we made the mistake of renting just one of the houses. The other two were occupied by another party, and though they were nice folks, it was definitely not the private getaway that we hoped for. The kitchen is shared between all of the houses, and our entire patio was quite visible from the dining table. At times it felt like we were living with room mates! I would definitely recommend Casa Mermejita for a large group that wants to rent all three houses, but not for just one of the houses if you are looking for privacy. At the very least, I would recommend renting the square house or rectangle house, both of which have less of a view, but are a bit more private.

The other thing worth mentioning is that there is quite a climb up at least 40 stairs in order to get to the houses and kitchen from the parking. It's not too much if you're in reasonable shape, but it is definitely not handicap accessible.

Despite the lack of privacy we had a great time. Mazunte is a great little beach town, and Casa Mermejita is in an incredible setting with an amazing view. It's a close walk to the beach and to Punta Cometa.
