Why Rex Noel chose Centro
Merida is truly authentic Mexico. The city itself and the surrounding countryside take us back to a more tranquil time when friends and family are more important than.... well, anything. The local people are warm, friendly and welcoming. We wander the streets at all hours in complete safety. And our time here leaves us relaxed and ready to face our busy lives again.
What makes this House unique
The location of Casa Noel is nearly perfect. On a quiet, bus free street, yet very close to so much of the city life that attracted us to Merida. The Paseo Montejo is just two blocks away with numerous restaurants and shops. Our local Santa Ana market offers a true Mexican shopping experience along with many of the services we have needed as homeowners and is just three blocks away. And we are within an easy 15 minute walk of the Plaza Grande yet discreetly removed from the noise and bustle of that area. And when you choose to remain home and relax, the quiet comfort of our home, gardens and outdoor living spaces will allow you to rest, refresh and recharge.

This house is amazing!!!!
We loved our stay in Casa Noel! This is one amazing home. It is huge, with beautiful spaces including an indoor courtyard/atrium which is just so lovely to sit and have your breakfast in the mornings or tea in the evenings or any time really. There is a small swimming pool in the back garden which is wonderfully refreshing after a very hot day. It has beautiful furniture, lots of architectural features, Mexican designs mixed with colonial style. It also has one of best equipped kitchens of any rental property I have stayed in, and I have stayed in many! We cooked our Indian traditional meals most nights and it was a joy to have everything needed at hand in a beautiful kitchen.
It is on a quiet street, close to the Paseo, and literally a two minute walk to the lovely French Cafe Creme (it's on the same street). The Paseo has many wonderful restaurants and has always been one of my favourite neighbours in my Merida.
Andrea and her assistant Jesus are wonderful to deal with, they are responsive and very thorough in their instructions. I highly recommend staying at Casa Noel, I felt quite sad when we left, it was like leaving one's own home.
Thank you so much for your kind words about our home. I'm glad we could help you make the most of your vacation in lovely Merida. I hope you can come back again.
Pleasant stay close to central Merida
We enjoyed our stay in this restored older home, about a kilometer from the central plaza of Merida. The place was well-kept and clean. We received wonderful assistance from the property manager. Jesus answered several questions for us, and helped us work through some internet issues. The property itself was well-equipped with TV, internet, cable TV with access to Netflix. The kitchen is also well-equipped, and very easy to make meals either simple or more complex (but we ate out for lunch and dinner routinely).
Nothing against the property itself, but a couple things to understand about older properties. The showers had very low flow (practically a sprinkling), and it takes more than five minutes to get hot water. You can't put any paper products in the toilet - so you use a lined waste basket.
Regardless, you are very close to Paseo de Montejo (major boulevard), and within 15 min walking distance of a very large Walmart, plus multiple smaller markets, and plenty of restaurants.
Very safe neighborhood.
We drove a rental car while we were in the Yucatan penisula. A couple of cautionary notes: When buying gasoline, I recommend that you tell the attendant how many liters you want, because then you can monitor that on the gas dispenser. Hand them money after they finish, not beforehand. I had two bad episodes with dishonest gas attendants. Also, watch yourself with Mexican police. We were shook down by police for a payment because my daughter temporarily had taken off her seat belt in the backseat. Cost us $140, and if we had had the cash, they would have taken more.
Hello Gary, thanks for your review. Since your stay, we have serviced the water heater, which we think was the reason for slow flow in the shower. As you may know, the Yucatan lies on a platform of limestone, so all of our water comes with a healthy dose of dissolved minerals. It takes frequent maintenance to keep our water system in good shape. I'm sorry you had a problem, but I believe we have addressed it now.
Great location, good value.
My family of 6 stayed here for a week just before Christmas. Overall we were pleased with the property. Walking distance to many restaurants, museums, and markets. Lots of space for six people.
We were disappointed by a few things. The stools in the kitchen have screws poking through the seat, so a few of us ended up with holes in our clothing. The beds are not very comfortable, by the end of the week many of us were having back pain. We ran out of toilet paper after just two days so just bought more. It would have been nice if there were more bags for garbage. There was one bag in the kitchen garbage, but they ask that you separate organic from inorganic waste, so have to either buy more bags, or use shopping bags.
But we were pleased enough with the property that we would consider staying there again if we return.
I'm glad you enjoyed Merida and the house in general. We are very sorry about the kitchen stools but thanks for bringing that to our attention - we just weren't aware of it previously, but we have already had new seats completed, and new mattresses and box springs are ordered and will be installed shortly. We do provide supplies for getting started in the house, but they may not be adequate for a longer stay; we do make that clear in our contract. Andrea and her staff are always happy to help out if you need anything, and are just a phone call or text away. Thanks for staying with us. Hope you will come back, we'd love to have you.
My family loved the house. A bit far from the centro for young kids to walk, but for adults, not a problem. We would definitely stay there again.
Thanks Brian, glad you liked it. Come see us again some time.
We had a wonderful time , The house was Incredible . Definitely we will Come back soon.
Thanks Jesus and Andrea, very happy 😃 for your hospitality we’re definitely coming back
