About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

It's high adventure in Yucatan -- if you want it to be -- and you certainly won't be lacking in things to do...even if it’s nothing!

Casa La Barenda is located in the heart of Merida’s centro historico, walking distance to restaurants, local markets, plaza's, museums, shops, theaters, and all the exciting activities that go on in the Plaza Grande. And it’s only fifteen minutes from Merida’s international airport!

Travelers to Merida will discover a vibrant and cosmopolitan city that retains much of its French and Spanish colonial charm… and Casa La Barenda is right in the middle of one of the most charming historic districts, Santiago.

The casa has two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a plunge pool, kitchen, and large dining and living areas and a comfortable indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

Casa La Barenda makes a terrific base to explore Mayan ruins, Cenotes, Caves, Haciendas, Bird sanctuaries, Fishing villages, Churches, Antiquities and Beaches of Yucatan.

We hope you'll find time to relax and decompress around the casa too. Fall asleep in hammocks, enjoy the rooftop lounge, seasonal breezes and city views. Chill around the plunge pool terrace and let the charms of Merida sink in.

Your personal assistant is available for any additional services like pre-arrival shopping to stock the fridge, tours, massage...please just ask.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I am a fourth generation Californian, traveler based in the San Francisco, Bay Area. I’m fascinated by ancient advanced culture where from Sumerian tablets to Atlantian myths and Mayan ruins—Yucatan plays a central role. While visiting Merida for the first time in 2003, I was hooked and came back to discover even more...

Why the Owner Chose Barrio de Santiago, Mérida, Yuc., Mexico:
Casa La Barenda is an easy day-trip from 'home', yet it's a world away! Being able to walk to everything in the centro historico and only fifteen minutes from Merida’s international airport makes it a snap to go. I enjoy the French-Spanish colonial architecture and exploring the many fascinating Archeological and natural wonders nearby. It's always a pleasure to see the ever-evolving food, art, music, people and cultural scene--there is so much here to experience.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Guests love the walk-to-everything lifestyle and the relaxing,feel of the home with comfortable furniture and colonial features decorated with a blend of antiques and local artwork. It's easy to decompress here with the indoor/outdoor living, chilling around the plunge pool or warming your bones at the rooftop lounge. The casa feels good and travelers and friends think enough to return. Hopefully Casa La Barenda and Merida surrounds will bring a smile and pleasure to your stay too.
