About The Owner

We originally traveled to vacation in Merida and found this home. After 3 days, we bought it and made our way back to our home in Vancouver, Canada with plans to move to Merida. We drove 5 times from Vancouver to Merida and explored most of Mexico along the way.

Both having spent decades working in high end catering services, we decided to prepare this house with the same love we had from our professional lives.

Come check it out at least - we know you won't be disappointed and truly hope to have you come and spend some time in one of the most unique, private, central, hacienda style homes in Merida.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Barrio de Santiago

This truly is "The" property to feel complete privacy and great open spaces for hosting impressive dinner parties for friends and family alike!

We purchased this location for it's massive size, extensive outdoor stone terrace and construction, which comes with an array of old growth, tropical fruit, spice trees and palms, huge grass area with plenty of hot sun and cool shade.

The outdoor pool is shared with a covered cabana with teak lounge chairs and teak patio furniture, which is next to the fire pit/grill for outdoor cooking. The entire outdoor space is surrounded by 12 foot stone walls & is illuminated by stone sconces surrounding the entire space.

Wonderful experience in Merida

  • 5 of 5

CasaBlanca is a large colonial era house with high ceilings and a large floor area. My wife and I stayed there for four weeks and really enjoyed the experience. The house has been brought up to modern standards with a tasteful, artistic renovation. Further, the art work throughout the house is quite impressive. CasaBlanca is maintained at a very high level and is immaculately clean on one's arrival. The kitchen is large and exceptionally well equipped, and the adjacent dining area is a delight. Among the most impressive features are the outdoor spaces. In the back, outside the kitchen and dining area, there is a large yard which is well lit and particularly enjoyable during the evenings. The lighting throughout the house and in the backyard is little short of inspired. We found the cabana near the pool delightful in the mornings and the court yard particularly inviting during the afternoon. The owners, Steve and Sanda, are wonderful people who go out of their way to insure a completely enjoyable experience for their guests.

Amazing Stay In Merida

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Sanda's home was spectacularly beautiful! They did a fantastic job on the renovation. The outside area is equally as gorgeous as the inside with the pool, fruit trees, plantings, all professionally landscaped. The birds calling in the morning were a special treat.

Loving to cook, the kitchen was set up to very high standards.

I have to say that both Steve and Sanda are wonderful people and is apparent that they love and take very good care of the home. We can't wait to go back!

We highly recommend Casablanca Living!

This luxurious property was architecturally stunning. Five hundred year old stone walls, exquisite pool and outdoor living space that flow seamlessly with the indoor spaces made staying here an experience for all of the senses. Every detail was thoughtfully attended to and of highest quality. Casblanca's simple elegance is a sanctuary within a magnificent city of a million people. From cleanliness to linens to kitchen needs, everything was provided generously. Our hosts were responsive to our queries and needs from our first emails confirming our stay until the morning of our departure. Their highly regarded expertise in the service industry and event planning in Vancouver, Canada was clearly evident. Original artwork through out the home resonates with the beautiful place they have created in Merida. It was a wonderful experience!

Comfort, Spacious and so so Beautiful. "Thank You!"

  • 5 of 5

Our friends shared this home and from the moment we arrived, everything was taken care of. With a warm welcome and drinks at the ready, then after a quick refresh from traveling, we were given a light tour of the home. We were also given a local map, a quick orientation and directions, for easy walking to get to the main market and some local restaurants.

This was a really nice way to start our perfect holiday knowing we were completely taken care of.

As for the house - it's Stunning! It's completely unique and offers all the privacy, comfort and calm you want, when you want it.

We already miss being there and hope we can make this happen again.

Thank you both!

Everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts Steven and Sanda thought of everything needed to make a holiday special and relaxing. The garden with pool gave a feeling of absolute privacy and solitude in the middle of a busy city. From making fresh squeezed O.J. to roasting a lamb leg the kitchen had it all. The bedroom mattress and pillows were 5 star making for a great sleep. I loved this home and will be back again.
