Merida house description
Address: Calle 47 #453-C, x50 y52, Centro Historico, Merida.
Casa Guadalupe is a tranquil hideaway in the central historic district of Merida. From Casa Guadalupe, stroll a few blocks down calle 47 to the beginning of the beautiful Paseo Montejo. Every Saturday night, enjoy the music, food, and artisans at the "Noche Mexicana." Two more blocks brings you to the lovely Santa Ana square, with its market (fresh tortillas, produce, flowers, spices), outdoor food court (try the tacos and a fruit smoothie), and, of course, music! On your way home, stop for a refreshing beverage served with some of Merida's best "botanas" (free appetizers).
The Merida English Library sponsors many activities in addition to lending books: Monday evening conversation groups to brush up on your Spanish, Wednesday morning house tours, monthly social gathering, and AA meetings. Once you fall in love with Merida, you'll want to return again and again!

The décor at Casa Guadalupe is mainly Mexican, but not too rustic. (The plumbing is definitely "gringo"!) If you're like us, you'll spend most of your waking hours in the spacious private courtyard - featuring a dipping pool that is perfectly situated to escape the hot afternoon sun. There are two bedrooms - one is in the back, the other in the front, off the living room.
Each has a queen-size bed, and there is a queen-size futon in the living room, and a hammock that can be hung in any room or on the patio. Both bedrooms have wide doors that open onto the courtyard, as well as remote-controlled AC.
There are two bathrooms - one inside the house, and a half bath and outdoor shower are conveniently located in the courtyard (just off the rear bedroom).
The newly renovated gourmet kitchen (we love to cook!) is equipped with the best stainless steel appliances. The counters and backsplash are Mexican native Ticul stone and Talavera tile. Dine al fresco in the enclosed courtyard just outside the kitchen. A stairway leads to the upper terrace - perfect for catching an evening breeze!

What a great house. Beautiful and spacious with all the amenities. It was a hidden gem close to everything. The pool was great to cool off of in before bedtime. We never needed the AC. Unbelievably quiet for being right in the center of things. The property managers went above and beyond especially Cinthya and Bren. Exceptional people. Great place!! Many thanks. Randy/Leticia

A great location near markets and restaurants! House is clean, kitchen equipped for cooking, pleasant patio and garden for outdoor dining. Owner requests to water plants and maintain pool unusual for rental properties, but not impossible.Cell phone loan a plus! A recommended property for families or small groups of friends. Great for exploring this lovely city and environs!

Our sanctuary in Merida
Our sanctuary in Merida
We wanted to share how happy our stay in Casa Guadalupe was. It was such a treat seeing it in person how much bigger and prettier it is. The photos do not really do it justice. It was in a great location just a few blocks from the Paseo Montejo. The house has fantastic doors and windows throughout, and the traditional floor tiles are gorgeous. We had several visitors come and sit on the patio and share a cold beer and all of them went on to say the house was really beautiful, a real traditional Merida style home. Allison really did a great job with the renovation. It was so great have the sanctuary of Casa Guadalupe to come home to. We loved being able to cool down in the pool and the sound of the fountain was very relaxing. We even had a visit from an iguana during our stay. We cant wait to go back.

About the owner: I have lived most of my adult life in Maine, USA. Now I live and work in the Boston area, but we still head to Maine every chance we get. We love spending time at our island cottage (VRBO listing #118778). Of course, children and two grandchildren are a big draw! In the winters, I am lucky to be able to tele-commute from Casa Guadalupe in Merida (VRBO listing #118785) for a month or two. Since we can't be in both places at once, it's gratifying that we can share our special homes with others!
Why the Owner Chose Merida:
Over thirty years ago, my husband and I chose Merida as one of three places in Mexico to go on our honeymoon. Twenty-five years later, a friend who wanted to retire in Merida got me interested in buying a retirement home in Merida - even though my plans to retire were still 10 years in the future. There are so many things I love about Merida that I hardly know where to begin. I posted a lot of my favorite travel information for guests at MeridaInternational [dot] com. You can probably guess from the photos what I like most about Casa Guadalupe.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Outdoor living is one of the best features of Casa Guadalupe (especially since I lived so many years in Maine!), and the private courtyard makes it easy to relax outdoors. I even enjoy just watching how the shadows of the tree cross the wall by the pool. I also enjoy being in the Centro area so we don't need a car. We can easily walk to several squares and the the main plaza, and to the many cultural events in the downtown. To head out of the downtown, taxis are nearby, cheap and plentiful.
