"My husband and I just returned from a wonderful week in this lovely home. The size and layout were perfect, the kitchen complete, the lanai amazing and the pool SO refreshing. Everything was spotless. The neighborhood was quiet with a cute little grocery store a couple of blocks away (turn left leaving the house, first left, then first right and down a half block) where we got toasted sandwiches for breakfast. Restaurants Chaya Maya (Yucatecan) and Dadaumpa (Italian) were great. Highly recommend, would stay here again in a heartbeat."

"We enjoyed our stay at Casa la Barenda, good location, air conditioning that worked and everything thing we needed to relax and enjoy. We visited in late July early August and it was hot outside, but we kept it nice and comfortable inside. There were some good maps at the Casa that made it easy for us to get to what we wanted to see. Uxmal and the ruins of the Ruta Puuc are amazing. We visited several nearby museums that were free and air conditioned as well as a day to to the beaches near Progreso . There are good restaurants nearby that can be easily walked to. Only negative was no hot water for the shower and several lights needed to be replace so it was a little dark. Would definitely recommend to friends and would look to return if we get the chance to visit Merida again, we would plan for November to April. The plunge pool was a refreshing relief after walking around town in the heat. The roof deck was another added bonus. The private outdoor space with grill table and ceiling fan was another added plus"

KATHLEEN WHITE'S GUEST HOUSE IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR THE SINGLE TRAVELER AS WELL AS COUPLES
"I stayed at the El Avenue Blanca for one month. April 14 to May 14, 2015. I was there for extensive dental work and was traveling alone. Being a 65 year old woman, it was difficult to stay in a hotel by myself. I would highly recommend this guest house, especially, for people traveling alone. Those who do not speak Spanish and do not know the city.
Kathleen and her family are very nice people. She was informative on places to visit and ways to spend the time I was not seeing the dentist. Also, she was able to call taxis for me - something I could not do myself since I do not speak Spanish.
Her inn is a reasonable place to spend time, and within reasonable walking distance to certain locations. If you stay with her for 1 month, you have your own bedroom and bathroom. You also have use of the kitchen, pool, CD library, garden areas and patios.
It was nice to have other people around me to talk to and share my adventures.
Again, I recommend her guest house for anyone traveling to Merida, Mexico for the first time."

"My husband and I just spent a week at Recuperacion. Our first trip to this area of the Yucatan peninsula. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.
Terry (the owner) was so helpful. From our first inquiry about the property she provided valuable information and recommendations. Her insight and advice on everything from rental cars, to resturants, to the "don't miss" attractions was perfect.
The property has a fantastic local manager. Joan drove us around Chelem to show us the grocery stores, reaturants, where to buy the freshest fruits and vegetables, and of course the night life.
This is a "Lonely Planet," off the beaten path kind of place. The beautiful house is situated on the Gulf of Mexico in a small fishing village on the Yucatan peninsula. There is a fairly large number of ex pats in the area so if you don't speak Spanish (my husband and I don't speak a word) there are plenty of people to help translate. The local inhabitants are so friendly and helpful (to the point of drawing pictures for us if necessary ).
Chelem is not a resort town. Is a small fishing village filled with wonderful people. We drove all over the peninsula. We walked the beach and the village at night. Everyone we met was incredibly helpful. Chelem felt as safe as home.
So if you want to disengage from the rat race make this your next vacation. You won't regret it."
