About the property

Two bedroom, three bathroom colonial style home with large garden & lovely pool.

This amazing property is located in the heart of Merida's historical center, near the Plaza Grande and Santiago. While it is in the center of a large, bustling city, being inside this home's antique doors feels like living inside a rural hacienda from Merida's historic past.

The home surrounds you in all the beautiful elements of hacienda style living: 20 foot ceilings, pasta tile floors, antique furniture. At the same time, it will WOW you with 21st century touches such as an enormous master bath with its own indoor garden; a large kitchen with local stone counter tops and all the modern conveniences; a pool and garden that will make you feel as though you have left the city far behind. This is the perfect home for those who would like to immerse themselves in Yucatecan culture and ambiance.

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Hemingway or Garcia Marquez could write volumes in this setting. The style of this superbly romantic and quintessentially Latino home and courtyard is breathtaking yet inspirational.

Two week get away

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks and had the best vacation. The home was just as described as were the pictures. It was close to the Grande Plaza, shopping, restaurants and activities. The weather, as usual for Merida, was very warm so the splash pool was always a welcome way to cool off. We never had to use the air conditioning as the ceiling fans at night were enough to keep you comfortable. LeAnn and her company were always helpful with any questions about the house or Merida. The only drawback was the wifi at times was intermittent. I would highly recomend this Colonial Hacienda Style house.

Comfortable in the heart of Merida Centro

  • 5 of 5

Nice home and garden in a good location near the main square. House is surprisingly quiet given it is just a few blocks from la Plaza Grande. Has a good sized splash pool. Nice covered patio. Kitchen has utensils and other items to eat in if you choose. The staff of the management team at Merida Property Rentals were attentive and responsive to requests. The house would be more comfortable with some additional outdoor seating and more range for the wifi signal. But all in all a great rental in Centro.

A Stunning Home...

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do it justice. This is a stunning hacienda home, much larger and much more grand than anticipated...and perfectly appointed with all the conveniences needed for a lovely holiday. It is located near the main plaza, good restaurants and shopping on Calle 59...yet just far enough for a laid back, quiet and beautiful retreat. LeAnn and Carlos were accessible and helpful with our (very) few needs...and waking up to the flurry of birds each morning was a glorious way to start the day. We are definitely planning on a return visit very soon.

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property which exceeded expectations. Rooms are numerous and well-proportioned, with stylish furnishings, lofty ceilings and gorgeous floors. Bedrooms, office and TV room have air conditioners, though in February the ceiling fans were enough to ensure comfort. The enormous casita main bedroom with its dressing room and garden bathroom is delightful, and with the pool just steps away, a pre-breakfast swim ensures a great start to the day. The kitchen is fully-equipped, including a hand-operated orange squeezer. The garden is filled with lovely plants: orchids, hibiscus and heliconia were blooming when we were there, and were regularly visited by cinnamon hummingbirds. A tree in the corner of the garden was a regular stopover point for orioles, warblers, doves, anis and saltators. As for location, it’s hard to imagine being better placed for attractions like the Casa Catherwood, the cathedral and the zocolo, and for good, reasonably-priced restaurants with varied cuisines. In particular, we loved being within ten minutes of Lo Que Hay, an amazing vegan restaurant with a set menu varing daily, as well as La Chaya Maya with its authentic Yucatecan dishes. The property is very well-managed: Alan, the house supervisor, is as efficient as he is friendly, and the cleaning staff visit weekly to change linens and maintain the pool. Our deposit was promptly returned: gas and electricity for a month was only a hundred dollars, considerably less than our own empty house in Canada was consuming during the same period just to stop the pipes freezing!

In summary, our stay in February 2015 was superb: we highly recommend this house for elegant living in the wonderful city of Mérida.
