Dating from the 1950s, I have tried to keep the character of the house intact, while adding some fresh decorating touches. Located in the popular and pretty district of Santiago with its market nearby, the house is only 7 minutes walk from the Main Square and Cathedral. The upper terrace area is a great place to entertain and relax, with its al fresco bar and breezes. Welcome to the most safe city in Mexico! Mérida, Cultural Capital of America 2017! I look forward to seeing you very soon!
Santiago is an ancient district of the city and extremely popular with locals and foreigners alike. It is a lively area of bars and restaurants and of course the Market with its fresh produce. It is one of the most favourite areas for "expats" to buy a property and so this house is in a very sought after area of the city. Crime is very rare here. You can walk the city safely at night, of course adopting the usual sensible precautions. The church is pretty and on Tuesday nights you will see people of all ages dancing in the little square in front.
From the moment you arrive in the lively barrio of Santiago you will feel part of a wonderful and interesting neigbourhood. You have your own private clean space with authentic Mexican antique furnishings. The house is perfect for budget conscious travellers. It represents great value and enables you to get the most out of your trip! There is a supermarket very nearby and you must try the Panuchos Yucatecos in the local market just 2 minutes walk away! Fresh flowers and fruit are in abundance. The location is so Central yet after an exhilarating days sightseeing you can relax with a cold beer on the nice breezy roof terrace!
The whole house is yours with the exception of a small storage area where I keep my personal belongings.
I will give you a nice check in and some recommendations of things to do and restaurants to visit. I am nearby if needed.
Small pets are allowed - please ask. Smoking in OUTSIDE areas only please. Thank You!
No car is necessary. Uber taxis are in town and are cheap and wonderful!
