Peace and tranquility in a vibrant city - perfect

  • 5 of 5

A really beautiful house in a beautiful city and was just what we wanted for out four week stay in Merida. The colonial style house was lovely and it had been very well renovated. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a cool, relaxing place to put your feet up after a day touring or before going out for the evening and then a good nights sleep. The location is excellent in the Historical area of the city. The city atmosphere was vibrant, the food was excellent, the various art galleries interesting and the entertainment in the evening at the various squares was fascinating. We were well looked after by Tom and Helen for whom nothing was too much trouble the place was kept spotless. This was our first time in Mexico and it won't be our last and it may well be back in Casa Kuxtal. Well recommended

Wonderful location and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect for exploring Merida. If you are driving, the on-street parking is a piece of cake. We always found a spot within a block. Driving around the city is easy and many parking options.

We enjoyed this property very much. Everything you need as far as the kitchen equipment.

Caretakers were great folks who gave us really good suggestions of what to do and where to go.

Only drawback, be sure to discuss the electrical surcharge not mentioned in the VRBO rates.

Amazing property, amazing location, amazing hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed for 6 nights at Casa Kuxtal and it was nothing short of spectacular. The house is even more gorgeous in person, especially the back yard! You are literally located on the main street that cuts through town and finding your way around is very, very easy (and Merida was extremely safe). While the house was great, what really made the trip special were the hosts, Thomas and Helene. They were available at any time and were very, very friendly and helpful. They emailed us a list of activities and places to eat and nothing disappointed. Would 100% recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing and fun-filled getaway!

Best option

  • 5 of 5

Casa Kuxtal was the best option for me and my parents for our trip to Merida. We loved to stay at Kuxtal House, the beautiful architecture, the comfort, were just perfect for us. Location is super central but still quit and private. The renovated colonial house is beautiful and it had everything we needed. Communication worked great. I would love next time, to stay again in this beautiful place. Thank you Steban.

great house

  • 5 of 5

Casa Kuxtal is close to markets, grocery stores, parks and is within walking distance of the central plaza. The house is nicely decorated and the King bed in the master bedroom is very comfy. We loved our stay in the house, which offered lots of privacy. Toma and Helene were friendly and helpful and were a delight to deal with. We had a wonderful time!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is perfect for a familiy wanting their privacy and comfort! However It will suit all of those seeking a nice vacation: from adventure seekers to romantic getaway! The backyard and the swimming pool make perfect sense when you come back from the daily exploration of Merida the surrounding region in the warm Yucatan wheather. The house is very well located just foot steps from the historical centre of Merida. It is just about an hour drive to the Mayan ruins of Chichen-Itza and Uxmal. It is also from just about an hour driving to the towns of Valladolid and the Celestun reserve!

My wife an I had a really nice stay.

Thanks friendly Esteban and Fernanda!
