Merida studio description

We have been in the hospitality industry all our working lives, and we know that 'The details make the difference'. Consequently, no detail has been overlooked in making our studio the best and most comfortable that it can be. With many rental houses and apartments, you only receive the basics, however at our studio, you can expect plenty of little extras, for example sparkling china and glassware, a hairdryer, facial tissues, a selection of soaps, shampoos and other amenities, plus paper towels and napkins. Since we know you will have been traveling for some time when you arrive, we also ensure the fridge is on, ice is available, and your fridge stocked with a couple of beers, soft drinks, juice, fresh limes, and milk. We provide coffee and sugar as well. For rentals of more than a week, we provide weekly cleaning and towel change. We are not a 5 star hotel, however we aim to provide 5 star touches. These are the extras that you don't find everywhere... truly the 'Details that make the difference'!

Our studio occupies the entire 2nd floor (1st floor for our British guests!) of a recently remodeled house located on the east side of the central area of beautiful colonial Merida. The neighborhood is the 'real' Yucatan, with local families as our neighbors. We find our studio appeals mainly to 'independent' type travelers, who appreciate the opportunity of staying in a local neighborhood rather than a tourist dominated area. In fact, when you stay at our studio, you have the best of both worlds, since you get to experience the real Mexico, while having the main tourist sites and areas an easy walking distance away.

Access to the studio is via an external staircase, providing a fully private entrance and privacy within the studio. Due to the staircase, the studio is not suitable for wheelchair users.

The studio is fully fitted with screened windows and ceiling fans, and is in the 'centro' of the city, around 10 blocks from the main streets. Close enough to be convenient, while far enough to be away from the hustle, bustle and traffic of the main tourist areas.

All soft furnishings, linen, towels, china, glassware, etc are new.

The area is safe for walking, and easily accessible by bus, taxi, or rental car for those who do not wish to walk, and we have easy parking outside the front door. Chem Bech market is within 2 blocks, for fruit, vegetables and fresh meat shopping, and a number of bars and restaurants, including a branch of Merida's famous 'Eladio's' are all within a short walking distance. Plaza Sendero mall, including a large supermarket, food court, and movie theater is 20 minutes walk or 3 minutes drive. The house itself is located on a quiet residential street, with no through traffic passing immediately outside.

The studio, with private entrance accessible via external staircase provides an open plan bed/living room, with fully equipped kitchenette and en-suite shower and toilet. The king-size bed, comfortable lounging chairs, and dining table and chairs ensure ample comfort, while a desk allows you to work if needed, utilizing our wireless internet connection. Outside the studio is our rooftop terrace, a wonderful location to relax in the evening while enjoying the breeze or enjoy an afternoon drink.

The studio is air-conditioned, to assist with comfortable sleep during the warmer months, and is equipped with ceiling fans.

A flat screen TV is provided, with local broadcast channels (mainly in Spanish) together with a DVD player and DVD library.

Owners live on site, providing peace of mind during your stay.

Merida is full of museums, cultural attractions, culinary distractions and shopping, and the surrounding area includes easy access to beaches, Mayan ruins (including world famous Uxmal and Chichen Itza, one of the new seven wonders of the world), cenotes, caves, Mayan villages, and many other attractions. The gulf coast beaches are 30km to the north, with many charming small beach towns to explore, providing an excellent day trip and memorable lunch.
