A home away from home
First of all I want to talk about Paulino (the owner's son). Paulino handles the bookings for this property and let me tell you he does an incredible job. It's a pleasure dealing with him. I had several questions and each and every one was answered in a timely fashion. The villa is in a very nice area. Resurants and grocery stores are in walking distance. The home is just like how the photos show on Homeaway. No surprises! The backyard is very peaceful with lots of birds always chirping. The backyard is quite private with lots of trees and vines. Depending upon the season you rent you will see mangos, oranges, avocados and even bananas. Nelsy (our maid ) is a beautiful woman, so do yourself a favour and if you're renting longer than a week, hire her....then you won't have to clean and you'll be helping out a beautiful woman. Nelsy couldn't speak English, so we really got to practice our Spanish with her. And many times she would correct us. There was always a lot of laughs. A beautiful woman from the inside out. We were very fortunate to meet the owner Rosa. Again another wonderful woman. She says her English isn't very good, but I told her if we could speak Spanish the way she speaks English we would be very happy!! Rosa was always willing to help us out to make our trip to Merida more pleasurable. Yes we had some hiccups along the way, but everything was handled in a timely fashion. The only thing that my husband and I would have loved to have was a patio set outside. So we could have eaten our meals outside by the pool. The villa is not close to Centro, so you would have to take a taxi. But taxis don't cost a lot anyway. Thanks Rosa and Paulino for making our stay in your villa so memorable.

I really enjoyed my stay in this house. The owner was responsive for the few issues we had. I would recommend it.
This house was really quite nice. We found all the bedrooms very spacious and the dining room actually has seating for up to 10 people. The neighborhood is very quiet with minimal traffic on the street. We found Merida to be a very driveable city however parking in the centro can be a bit hard to find. Often we left the car at the house and took Uber to the historic center. It only cost around $30 pesos for a trip.The off-street (gated) parking at the house was very handy. Groceries and many restaurants are only three or four blocks walk. We enjoyed sitting by the pool in the evening and watching the night sky. We only had one issue - a malfunctioning coffee maker - and the property manager took care of it right away. So, overall we had a great experience and would not hesitate to stay again or recommend this home to other travelers to Merida. Our favorite sights to see ... Celestun biosphere preserve (pink flamingos), Maya Pan ruins (only 40 km away off the road to Valladolid) and the music and folk dancing on Thursday evening in the park Santa Lucia ... get there a bit early as it gets busy and all the seat get taken.
Beautiful house in Merida
My family and I had a wonderful experience at this house! The property owners were very accommodating and helpful during our stay.
The location is very convenient and accessible on foot or by car to neighborhood restaurants etc.
It is very quiet, you wake up to the natural sounds of birds that are in the large Mango tree in the yard.
Our children (ages 6 and 9) loved the pool. Being beginner swimmers the depth was perfect for them to feel safe and practice swimming.
The property in general is well maintained and thoughtful in its decor. The smart TV was a bonus feature that made it convenient to integrate to our Netflix account and have movie nights.
We have traveled extensively as a family over the years and this has been our best trip to date because of the house, the location, the friendly owners which enabled us to experience Merida a beautiful city in the Yucatán. We will be back!
Modern, beautiful, private home
We spent 63 days at this location with minor problems. The home is big and bright with overhead fans in every room which kept the heat out without using the air conditioner. The master bedroom is lovely with a California King size bed, attached bath and a sliding door to the pool area. The furniture is well made, sturdy and comfy. The kitchen has a new stove which we didnt use much and a new refrigerater. You have to get water from the local venders which come by the house everyday, throughout the day. The smart TV is very easy to use and has many great features. The landscaping throughout the property is beautiful and well kept. There are banana (plantains), mangos, oranges and avocado trees surrounding the very well kept and pleasurable pool. The backyard is surrounded with walls covered in vines and jungle-like plants making the pool area very private with no on lookers. We were able to swim without bathing suits and felt very comfortable.
The location of this home is in a quiet mid to upscale neighborhood. Restaurants and convenient stores are a very short walking distance. We did not rent a car during our sixty three day stay. Took taxis downtown and to Progresso beach. Everything else was within walking distance.
Adriana was a huge help with a few bumps along the way and made our stay very relaxing and comfortable. We highly recommend this lovely home to anyone visiting Merida.
