"We loved our stay at Casa La Barenda; a beautiful home in a fascinating city. Although it was unseasonably warm while we were there (95deg.+) the casa was a cool and quiet retreat from our very active days. There is much to do in the area, from museums and art galleries to visiting Mayan ruins, henneken haciendas and a variety of beaches. One of the best features is a very competent and responsive local management team that will help you through any questions that may arise. When our mini-split conked out the first night, they arranged repair the following day, and even threw in a gift certificate to the best restaurant in town! When we absolutely had to make an early bus, they arranged a reliable cab for us. The house is perfectly comfortable and charming. We enjoyed the dipping pool during late afternoons and catching the cool evening breezes and watching the sun set on the roof deck. The information packet provided is the best we have encountered, and we've rented quite a few houses! We highly recommend Casa La Barenda for its comfort, great location and interesting neighborhood. Plus the fine quality of local restaurants!"

"Just a quick note to offer my most sincere thanks to Mary and Neil!
Mary, your home is impeccable in every capacity! From location (on a lovely quiet street just 2 ½ blocks from the gorgeous Paseo, near restaurants, cafes, shopping and a number of plazas with their music and dancing and churches and museums) to décor (elegant and clean, with enviable fixtures, comfortable amenities and a clean flow from front to back) to the easy livability of the property (a fabulous home that feels like home), we were enchanted with every detail! The back patio was a lovely relaxing retreat where wine flowed and al fresco dining was in order after a long day, walking gorgeous Merida and discovering the many fabulous attractions. The well appointed kitchen is the hub of this lovely house, where meals were prepared using market goods from the many markets within walking distance. Thank you for offering this wonderful home!
And Neil, thank you for your time and service! We appreciated the many tips and the offers of assistance. Thankfully, no assistance was necessary due to the perfection of the house, neighborhood and city. But it was nice to know you were there in the case that we needed you. And indeed, opening up the house and allowing that gorgeous cross-breeze to ventilate meant we didn’t even need to use the fans very often, let alone the AC.
Thank you both! Our stay in Merida was simply perfect!"

"My family stayed for 3 nights at Sac Chich in March, and had a wonderful time. My wife and 4 kids (13,11,9,6) spent a lot of time at the pool, and the owners' dog Eva came over and played one afternoon (which was a huge hit with the kids). The grounds were beautiful, the building was unlike anywhere we stayed before, and it was almost more beautiful at night than during the day. The owners were staying at Casa Sisal next door, and we walked up one morning to check that out as well (very modern, very sleek, a great vacation rental as well). We'd stayed in Merida for a few days before this, so to have all of this open space was a real treat for the kids. We had the staff make breakfasts and dinners for us, and the food was REALLY good, and the "girls" (as Cyndy called them) were very friendly and helpful (it was fun testing our Spanish with them). All in all, we had a great stay, and were very sad leaving our hacienda."

"We have spent a total of 5 months at Panadero: one three month stay 2 years ago andanother 2 month stay this last winter.
Can't say enough positive about our experience. The house is wonderful in every respect.
It's in a great location, a short stroll to the Plaza Grande, Paseo Montejo and the Santiago barrio as well.
The owners are marvelous folks whom we never met but felt like they were true friends nevertheless.
It's very important when renting a wonderful old colonial in Mérida that you have a responsive and responsible property manager on call who can help with concerns both major and minor that do come up.
Panadero has the absolute BEST representative in Silvia. We actually become dear friends and her close relationship to Panadero's owners only makes it easy for guests to feel part of a family.
The fact that we won't be able to return to Mérida next winter opens up the opportunity for you to rent this enchanting house. Don't hesitate, I guarantee you will be thrilled."
