Property description

Casa La Barenda is located in the heart of Merida’s centro historico, walking distance to restaurants, hotels, museums, shops, theaters and all the exciting activities that go on in the Plaza Grande (the central square). 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.

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. Not to mention the local food, art, music, history, people and culture--there is much here to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa La Barenda is a simple, rustic property with all the essentials and various architectural touches to reflect local character and lifestyle. Guests love the walk-to- everything location; the plunge pool and garden with the Mayan water feature overhead and the rooftop lounge area with neighborhood views. 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.
