About the property
- Half Baths1
- Minimum Stay3 nights
Casa Cortile is like an amazing suite in 5 star hotel.
This is the most romantic rental property in Merida Centro. Please consider Casa Cortile for your honeymoon, anniversary or any other very special occasion, or turn your next vacation into a special occasion with a stay in this amazing home.
Two bedrooms, one and a half baths, a heated pool and a lovely roof top sun terrace are only the beginning. Even before you open the door, the block of homes which Casa Cortile shares is the most beautiful in Merida. The facades are classically Colonial and flaunt the beauty of Merida's glory days.
It was from homes such as this that the henequen barons of the 19th century accumulated enough wealth to make Merida, per capita, the richest city in the world.
Walking through the front door is like stepping back in time to a place of beauty and architectural details you would never find in a modern house. Yet Casa Cortile is also completely modern and comfortable to 21st century standards.
Both bedrooms are amazing, but the master suite at the rear of the pool is simply stunning. The nighttime view from this bedroom to the pool will make you pinch yourself to remember you are in Merida, only a two hour flight from Houston, Texas! Please note that currently only the first bedroom has air conditioning.
The outdoor living room/dining room/ kitchenette is placed at the opposite end of the pool and garden and shares the beautiful view.
This isn't the rental home for gourmet chefs who wish to cook in every evening, but is perfect for romantic travelers who want luxury, privacy and all the amenities of the best of hotel suites.
The kitchenette is complete with stove top, sink, refrigerator, dishware, cookware, etc. and is perfect for breakfasts, lunches or snacks.
The pool is a rarity in Merida in that it is heater with a gas heater.....great for cool winter evenings.
The feature most coveted by guests in Merida are the lovely roof top terraces which catch the evening breezes and are a perfect spot for a cocktail while star gazing. The one here is also extremely private and overlooks the pool and garden.
All in all, there isn't a better rental choice in Merida. You will love the location, in the heart of the Centro Historico, the design, the furniture, the garden and all the amenities.

Great location perfect rental for a romantic vacation.
Very close to plaza grande and easy walk to the mercado Lucas de Galvez. Vacation rental manager and staff were accommodating. We will be back!
A marvellous hideaway in the middle of everything
The house could not be more central,and yet more private. There is a lot of traffic outside,but for one couple,the only things you hear are the turtle doves,as the front two rooms (foyer and front bedroom) block out all the road noise,and the master bedroom (and bath) is in the back behind the pool.
The terrace is wonderful feature,as it catches the breeze and for several hours a day,is in the shade.The pool stays cool in the heat ,as it is shaded most of the day.
Altogether a wonderful spot,kept very clean.Though some of the furniture is a bit tired,most is in excellent fit and overall very comfortable. The management is very responsive and personable. Most definitely a gem.
Beautiful and romantic
We had the Casa for January and February 2018. It is just as beautiful as the pictures. The Casa is well outfitted and we made most of our meals in the kitchen. The cleaning staff Chary and Limber were great and non-intrusive. The service provided by Merida Rentals was excellent (Luis, Javier and LeAnn) and they took great care to make sure we were comfortable. The pool is a great way to cool off on hot days. We did not use the pool heater but it was available. We had a great stay and the Casa is perfect place from which to explore Merida. Merida is an exciting city with something happening every day. We walked every where and managed to take in most of the sights. We also took the local bus which is only 8 pesos and covers most of the city. Uber and taxis are in abundance. Merida is also a great place from which to explore the Yucatan peninsula. There are a number of tour operators and we can recommend Transturimerida and Mayaland (Greyline) who took us to places like Uxmal, Chichen Itza, Izamal and Campeche. We took the AutoProgress bus to Progresso which is a comfortable and inexpensive way to get to the beach. We had an excellent time at Casa Cortile and highly recommend it.
Lovely outdoor living. Comfortable, clean, well-equipped.
Ideal location close to El Centro.
Everything it claimed to be and more!
We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful house. Great neighborhood, close walk to great sites (Plaza Grande, Cathedral, etc.), and many great restaurants, shopping, and very close to other historic sites in Centro.
The kitchen is small, but it works great for the amount of cooking anybody would really need to do (breakfast, lunch). With the proximity to many fine restaurants with amazingly low prices, there is little need to prepare dinners!
The rooftop deck is an amazing space to enjoy the sun or just sit in the evening and gaze at the stars.
We were met at the property by Carlos, and he explained everything to us and was extremely helpful! The booklet left on the dining table gave us all the information we needed for an enjoyable stay.
Our only regret was how short the stay was and how quickly time flew by.
If you are looking for an authentic experience staying in a Spanish Colonial house in the Centro Historico, this is your place!
Thanks for a beautiful experience!
And we thank you for being such great guests! If your trip was too short, we hope that you will be back soon. Merida has too much to offer to be able to enjoy it all in only a few days!
Lovely and magical space!
We enjoyed this rental tremendously and would go back in a heartbeat. All the previous reviews are so true. Be advised if you travel in winter, though, that the pool needs 36 hours to heat. We wished we'd known this beforehand but would still highly recommend this site. It's truly transformative!
The pool actually needs about 12 hours to heat normally, but your visit unfortunately corresponded to our coldest few nights of the year! Since the gas to heat the pool is charged separately, we always ask in advance if the renters will want it to be heated so that the heater can be started before their arrival. Most guests do not choose this option, however, and then there is a delay if they decide later to have it heated.
We're so happy that you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to your speedy return!
