Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a fourth generation Californian, traveler based in the San Francisco, Bay Area. I’m fascinated by ancient advanced culture where from Sumerian tablets to Atlantian myths and Mayan ruins—Yucatan plays a central role. While visiting Merida for the first time in 2003, I was hooked and came back to discover even more...

Why the Owner Chose Merida:
Casa La Barenda is an easy day-trip from 'home', yet it's a world away! Being able to walk to everything in the centro historico and only fifteen minutes from Merida’s international airport makes it a snap to go. I enjoy the French-Spanish colonial architecture and exploring the many fascinating Archeological and natural wonders nearby. Not least of which includes the food, art, music, history, people, culture--there is much here to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa La Barenda is a simple, rustic property with all the essentials and various architectural touches to reflect local character and lifestyle. Guests love the plunge pool and garden with the Mayan water feature overhead; the exposed rock and waterfall in the living area; the combined use of local materials--including wood, tile, concrete and iron. The casa feels good and travelers and friends enjoy their stay. Hopefully Casa La Barenda will bring a smile and pleasure to your stay too.
