  • Very nice!

    "We stayed with my father. We have 3 kids, 8, 13, 14. It was a very nice place to stay with the owners being very friendly! The pool is very nice to cool off in if you don't want to run the 60 feet to the ocean. The ocean in front is very sandy and shelly so I would recommend wearing water shoes if planning on going in the water. You can walk a fair distance out because of the many sand bars making hills and valleys. You will not be able to see anything at all if you plan on snorkeling. The sunrise and sunset are both very beautiful and taking long walks on the beach is very relaxing as there are not many people around. I made friends with a yellow lab cross and she would come out with me every morning for a long walk. The town is very nice and laundry services are there. Bodega (grocery store) is also in town. If you need anything else, Merida has a Costco, Walmart, Sams club, etc. It has everything that a city should. We rented a car from Fox Rental in Cancun and drove out to the house. We arranged for the rental beforehand through Amex and when we went to pick it up, we were told that we had to buy insurance too. $50 doesn't sound too bad, until they tell you that is per day. We allowed them to put a hold on the credit card and then called the credit card company the next day to cancel the hold. I drove all the time and the only time I got frustrated was in Merida due to the high volume of traffic with narrow streets. There are also many roundabouts in Merida. If you have a good map it wouldn't be so bad. The owners of the house were extremely kind and really helped me out as we arrived later than my father. I appreciate everything they did for us and the only reason I would not recommend this, is so that it doesn't get too popular for us to reserve it again! There are many Mayan ruins around with one being 50 kms away. Lots to do and we did an overnight trip to the mayan Riviera side as well! My father is legally blind and the owners went out of their way to make sure he got to the house alright and to make sure I was notified when he got there! Thank you very much Wilma and Freddie. You have a beautiful property and we look forward to coming again!"

  • Wonderful place!

    "We stayed two weeks in this wonderful house. The owners were so easy to work with, helpful and accommodating. I have rented often through VRBO and have never been so fully prepared before an arrival, an info booklet even came by email! We had several locals who visited our house and they were amazed with it's appearance. The location is great, within walking distance of several squares and main plaza. A grocery store and Mercado very close. Thank god for the A/C as we gringos really needed it! Nicely stocked kitchen and even an "essentials kit" if you forgot something. Another couple was traveling with us and they stayed upstairs in what we called the "love nest". Great communication with Lucia, once we arrived in Merida. Some minor A/C problems which were taken care of within hours. Yes, I would stay there again."

  • Gem in Merida

    "This is a beautiful, modern, safe, clean, and spacious home. This home came well equipped and was tastefully decorated and has VERY comfortable beds and huge showers!! We stayed 19 days at this home and found it be to a true "home away from home", it lends itself to a very relaxing and calming atmosphere. The patios and pool are surrounded by very tall walls providing ultimate privacy and plenty of sunshine all day! The weather in Merida was about 30-38`c (April) everyday and the house was very comfortable with the ceiling fans and air conditioning. The house is situated perfectly in the centro and close to many restaurants, shops, bakery, grocery stores, and cafes (all within a comfortable walking distance!!) Merida is a beautiful and charming colonial city, we did many day trips to Progreso, Celestun, and Mayapan Mayan Ruins and the Cenotes. I would highly recommend this home to my family and friends, it was easily accessible from Cancun thanks to the ADO bus system. A special thanks to Alan from the property management company who greeted us at the home, promptly assisted us with any questions throughout the trip, and for helping us arrange a private chef for authentic Mexican cuisine."

  • Special Part of Mexico

    "(resubmit site is down so I will do through this site--ref.#10844525 on rental 351632--please let me know if this revision has been accepted) Our family, from teens to grandma, came away saying, "Our Purple Pelican Palace & the area was the very best trip we have ever taken." The house was a perfect set-up inside and out. We make much of the gulf/beach on one side and the pool/patio on the other, which gave us quality time together. Chelem provided us contact with hard working, gracious people----baseball games, fresh fish, fruits and vegetables. New Years Eve was a blast-off of specially made figures in front of everyone's homes then open-air mass for the populace. The diving pelicans were fun and we visited the flamingos in the salt flats more than once. Take advantage of the cenotes (sink holes) with swimsuits/water shoes all over the area as well as the sites of Mayan civilization. We visited Uxmal upon the recommendation of our home owner. We ditto his rec. Merida is worth a visit on it's own. We, only, had time for the Sunday Mercado, some shops & food. The Yucatan's food has it's own twists from what you think of as Mexican food. It is very good. Yes, we would visit the area/home again. The owner and the property manager were so hospitable and welcoming. To take advantage of all the area offers you should have transportation (we didn't try the local). Do take advantage of the guides at the various sites or you won't know what you are seeing. Some of your group having command of Spanish helps too, especially around Chelem."
