The house is painted in rich, hacienda colors and just being inside the house promotes a sense of well being and relaxation. Breathtaking local artwork through out the house and two stone accent walls which will accentuate your stay !
There are two bedrooms. One in the front of the house, and one in the back by the garden and the pool. Both have king sized beds and their own newly renovated bathrooms with showers. Back master bedroom has a new hallway closet and dresser section built in . There is also a combination safe available for your valuables.

Darren Woodson DVM purchased this House in 2009
Why Darren Woodson DVM chose Centro
We chose to buy a home in Merida because the city and surrounding countryside are gentle, gracious and endlessly fascinating. The city of Merida is the safest city in all of Mexico, and safer than most American cities... in violence, it is on a par with Wyoming and Montana... in other words, there is none. We love the Yucatan culture and the relaxed, welcoming and tranquil attitude of the people of Yucatan. It is really hard to explain the allure of Merida and the Yucatan , it really is different than the rest of Mexico and frankly just needs to be experienced.
What makes this House unique
When we are at Casa del Panadero, we love to wake up in the morning and enjoy a breakfast of coffee and local tropical fruit in our patio or now at the new kitchen island . We dip in and out of the pool all day when we are home. Or we go out for the day, exploring Mayan ruins or other colonial cities not far away from Merida, like Izamal or Tecoh. At night, Merida comes alive... so if we aren't enjoying our swimming pool again, we go out on the town. We can walk almost anywhere and enjoy free events like dancing, music and theatre at many of the barrio parke's . Casa Del Panadrro has the best location in Centro. As you can walk to everything , we also have two bikes for your enjoyment . As they say with real estate LOCATION, LOCATION , LOCATION !!!

A great stay!
We had a great month at Casa del Panadero.....what a great location in Centro Merida. We walked everywhere to restaurants, the parks, markets, museums and discovered little specialty shops. It was quite warm as it exceeded 40 degrees at times so the pool was wonderfully refreshing.
The owners were very accommodating and the Manager Silvia was amazing.....always helpful and informative. House cleaning and pool maintenance all good. The evening Mexican Jazz at La Negrita just down the block was pleasant to visit or to listen to during supper hour or evening dips in the pool. The Casa is very well equipped with everything up to date and the decor is perfect.
Could not have been better!......Don & Monique
Beautiful house, well located, well equipped, well managed
We were delighted to stay at Casa del Panadero for over a month in February and March. From the moment we arrived, we felt so welcomed and comfortable. The house has Colonial charm updated with modern conveniences. Silvia, the manager, could not be more delightful and was ready to offer suggestions, or see to any problem we had immediately. Likewise, Darren, the owner was always prompt to return an email on any question we might have. The high ceilings and tall doors to the interior and back courtyards, keep the house cool. There is beautiful local art throughout and the beds are very comfortable. The pool is most welcome in the hot midday.
The location is within easy walking distance of the myriad of restaurants and attractions of Merida central. There is a very lively cantina on the corner which has music from 6:00 pm to either 9:00 or 10:00pm. You will hear the music, which is either a plus or minus depending on your disposition.
We have rented many vacation homes in many places and Casa del Panadero has to rank among the best equipped and most accommodating ever. We hope to return.
The house is perfectly located for a stay in Merida. After being greeted so warmly by the property manager Silvia, we settled right into the rhythms of Mexican life. The layout and design of the house are fantastic in every way. Breezes blow through open courtyard doors, and the gentle sound of fountains calms and cools. The showers are hot and the beds perfect for great sleep. There’s also a great kitchen for meals or mid-afternoon snacks. Tip: memorize an easy guacamole recipe, shop the local markets for a few ingredients, and enjoy!
So GLAD you all enjoyed the house . Plaese return again sometime Cheers , Darren and Margie
I spent 3 weeks at Casa del Panadero over the Christmas and New Year holidays. Could not have picked a better place! Both the house and the location were top notch. I felt warmly welcomed by Silvia (property manager) with flowers, fresh fruit, coffee baked goods and orange juice- so totally prepared to settle in. Additionally, the owners (very responsive and helpful) left a picture book of Yucatan locations and a bottle of wine. I'm a "foodie" and enjoyed cooking in the totally redone kitchen...plus, the house was within walking distance to the "Slow Food" market on Saturdays. In fact, its within walking distance to absolutely anything Centro has to offer. The pool is a private sanctuary- I was in it every day. A fountain in the pool and a fountain in the central courtyard provided a wonderfully soothing sound atmosphere.
A popular club, "La Negrita" is just a few doors down- great live music with a Cuban influence (it seemed to me). The music drifts easily to Panadero- yet the club keeps very reasonable hours, resulting in a perfect mix of quiet, tranquil days- upbeat early evenings- and quiet peaceful nights. Parque Santa Lucia is very close by and has a selection of maybe 6 outdoor patio-type restaurants to choose from (all good, btw) Great place for lunch and reading, I thought.
Casa del Panadero has been restored with quality materials, good design sensibilities, colors and textures... (I'm an art professor, so I do notice those things). It's truly an experience. All the work pays homage to the traditional colonial aesthetic, yet provides all those creature comforts we all want!
It's a special place- I hope to visit again. Thanks Darren and Margie for sharing your wonderful home!
We are SOOOOO happy we could share Panadero with you and you had a great visit . The kitchen is really nice isn't" t it .Margie and I love to sit at the kitchen bar and have coffee in the morning . Come again sometime and thank you for the review . Cheers, Darren and Margie
Wonderful home for six weeks!
Casa del Panadero is a great house in a very central and convenient location that allowed me to walk everywhere. I loved the high ceilings, multiple places to sit and relax, and the pool. It really did look like the pictures! The owner was pleasant to deal with, and Silvia, the local manager, was attentive. As a single female, I felt very safe in Merida, and would recommend it to anyone.
We LOVE casa del Panadero!
We have spent a total of 5 months at Panadero: one three month stay 2 years ago andanother 2 month stay this last winter.
Can't say enough positive about our experience. The house is wonderful in every respect.
It's in a great location, a short stroll to the Plaza Grande, Paseo Montejo and the Santiago barrio as well.
The owners are marvelous folks whom we never met but felt like they were true friends nevertheless.
It's very important when renting a wonderful old colonial in Mérida that you have a responsive and responsible property manager on call who can help with concerns both major and minor that do come up.
Panadero has the absolute BEST representative in Silvia. We actually become dear friends and her close relationship to Panadero's owners only makes it easy for guests to feel part of a family.
The fact that we won't be able to return to Mérida next winter opens up the opportunity for you to rent this enchanting house. Don't hesitate, I guarantee you will be thrilled.
Daytrips from Casa del Panadero include trips to Mayan archaeological zones like Chichen Itza, Uxmal, Dzibilchaltun and many others. Guests can also visit haciendas,colonial cities,the beach in Progresso , Mayan villages, cenotes (fresh water springs, often in caves), fishing villages and much more.
