A lovely colonial casa
"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 husband and I, two active seniors, spent a lovely month at Casa Alux in Merida. We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations and with the assistance we received from Stewart and Jesus. Their suggestions for everything from where to eat to excursions out of town were much appreciated. Even more appreciated was their help with printing and scanning some important documents while we were there. Casa Alux is a nice walk from most activities and sites in Merida and there are always taxis available if you prefer. A safe, friendly, home away from home."

"An unpretentious facade opens into the most beautiful house. Every bit as lovely as the photos, the kitchen is a cooks delight, the bedrooms lovely with comfortable beds and great sheets. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Merida is wonderful as are the people and restaurants. We had no trouble parking in front, so we could drive to wonderful Hacienda Yaxcopoil and to the spectacular ruin Uxmal."
