Property type townhome

About the property

Comfortable Remodeled Townhouse With 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms

Enjoy Casa Rosita, a contemporary two-bedroom two-bathroom townhouse situated in the heart of downtown Merida. From the street, step into the beamed high-ceilinged living room where you can settle back on the comfortable sofa in front of the wall-mounted flat TV. From the living room walk out on to a sunny, open air patio leading to the downstairs bedroom and kitchen.

In the bedroom, relax on the comfy queen size bed or open your laptop at the small desk to check the internet. No need to live out of a suitcase while you can spread your things out in the wall to wall solid wood closet and on the granite countertop and in solid wood drawers in the en suite bathroom.

Try a new Yucatecan recipe in the totally equipped kitchen, complete with granite countertops and bar with built in stovetop and oven. Don´t bother lugging home those heavy bottles of purified water as the kitchen is also equipped with a reverse osmosis ultraviolet light water purification system.

Take a dip in the cool, filtered plunge pool or just sit out on the covered terrace and listen to the birds sing while you enjoy the small colorful garden and shady sour-orange tree.

Upstairs, admire the evening stars on the open air terrace outside of the master bedroom while you relax on a comfortable patio chair. After a luxurious shower surrounded by plants in the en suite bathroom, stretch out in the master bedroom on the pleasant king size bed and catch a movie on the flat screen TV.

Why Debbie Jo Proulx de Nunez chose Centro

This house caught our eye because of its great downtown location.

What makes this townhome unique

Casa Rosita was such an ugly duckling when we found it but the young architects at Attiko transformed it into a modern, comfortable and beautiful little house


Order an aromatic coffee while you sit in an outdoor café under an ancient arch or a flowering tree and people-watch. Stroll down quaint narrow streets in the morning and perceive the fragrance of chile habanero charring on a comal. Wander past a neighborhood tortillería and watch steaming hot tortillas fall off the creaky conveyer belt and into the attendant´s hands. She´ll expertly wrap up a quarter-kilo´s worth for you to fold around slices of the lusciously ripe avocado you found earlier in the local market.

Shop for vibrantly colored handcrafts, hide from the sun in a cool dark church, buy a delightfully soft cotton hammock and vow to continue this gentle life-style when you return home.

On the balmy evenings, revel in the traditional music and dance; dine al fresco at top-notch restaurants featuring Yucatecan or international cuisine. Stroll to the main plaza, hire a romantic trio and serenade your Significant Other. Unforgettable!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Casa Rosita is an amazing property. The decor and layout are fantastic and it is only a few minutes walk to downtown and lots of great restaurants. Debbie met us at the house and was extremely helpful with information and tips even before we arrived. I would HIGHLY recommend this VRBO to anyone staying in Merida!

Beautiful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with my brother and sister-in-law recently stayed in Casa Rosita. We could not have been more pleased. The house is beautiful and stocked with everything you would need and more. The house was perfect for us as the bedrooms were very separate and each had its own bathroom. The kitchen was well stocked and the couch in the living room was so comfortable! The location was great as it was close to the main plaza and great restaurants and we were able to walk to everything we needed. The owner was so helpful and made everything easy for us. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it highly to anyone staying in Merida.

Oasis in the city

  • 5 of 5

We had done minimal planning for our four night stay in Merida but we seemed to find good food, live music and dancing no matter which direction we took from Casa Rosita. Although Casa Rosita is on a busy street, the atmosphere changes the minute you step inside. The house is private, clean, modern, functional and comfortable while managing at the same time to be somewhat rambling and charming with several outdoor areas made private by very high walls. Debbie was easy to reach by email and she made sure everything went smoothly for our arrival. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

We are finishing almost 10 nights in Casa Rosita. This is our second stay at the house and once again Casa Rosita was perfect! Perfect location, perfectly maintained, and perfectly furnished! We would highly recommend this house to anyone. Jo, the owner, is very responsive and obviously takes great pride in making sure her house is and remains the perfect place for her visitors to stay in Centro. We look forward to future visits!

Unique, High Quality Accommodation within Walking Distance of Centro Historico

  • 5 of 5

This well designed and superbly outfitted casita was perfect for two couples visiting Merida for the first time. The well-equipped kitchen was a joy to prepare meals in; the pool and garden offered a lovely cool oasis to return to; and the large bedrooms and ensuite baths provided space for clothing, great blackout curtains, comfortable beds and achoice of fans or AC. WIFI was excellent.

Debbie Jo was responsive, efficient and friendly. This was one of the best properties we've stayed at with VRBO.

Great home, location & price!

  • 5 of 5

Debbie Jo was very gracious throughout the booking process. She provided assistance with out arrival, met us at house, offerred suggestions and could not have been more helpful. Everything you need as a renter is provided: toilet paper, soap, hangers, plates, ad infinitum. The house is very clean throughout with meticulous attention to every detail. WiFi works without issues. Purified water is a plus. There is even a small safe for your valuables! This house is in a great location, close enough to Centro to walk, but away from the night life. Aki market is 3 blocks away for specific supplies (soft drinks, water, bread, etc. See my review re backeries for dessert and breakfast goodies). This house is well designed and layed out. The outdoor space is very nice to have, weather permitting. WysIWYG; the pictures are all accurate. The only nit picky issues we found were that it would be nice if the MBR had blackout shades that were more conducive to sleeping in and an afternoon nap. (The shades that drop from the top of the doors are too light and do not block out much of the sunlight.) Also, we could not find any English channels on the TV in MBR. All in all, this is a great house, in a great location, that is fully furnished with a very accommodating owner. All of this at a great price cannot be beat! If we go back to Merida, Casa Rosita will be our stop. Highly recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, we try to keep Casa Rosita well maintained. To address your suggestions, yes, you are right, the master bedroom does need some blackout shades and I will have some installed. The master bedroom TV does have many channels which can be changed from Spanish into English but you have to know how to do it using the remote control. Time for me to update my Instructions Notebook! I'm glad that you enjoyed the house and hope to see you again, you left it in perfect shape.
