Casa Mil Amores - Stunning Colonial Home Close To Santigao Park!
Literally only a few steps from parque santiago, this grand colonial home, designed by renowned architect salvador reyes, is situated in one of the best locations of historic merida. Walk to the neighboring mercado for fresh vegetables and other necessities, or stroll to the zoo, theater, or main square. With self-sustaining ecosystems (complete with fish, turtles, and crayfish) in two of the courtyards, this remarkable home is the ideal retreat in the heart of centro.
Stepping past the restored colonial facade, you will be welcomed into this 100+ year old home by original pasta tile floors, high beamed ceilings, antique wood doors, skylights, and large open spaces. The 3 bedroom home has a foyer, two living rooms, dining room, office, fully-equipped kitchen, 3 courtyards, large infinity edged pool, ample terraces, and a rooftop entertaining/relaxing area with a covered mirador tower for viewing the city. All of the bedrooms feature ensuite bathrooms with a stone tub found in the master bathroom.
The 8 meter long infinity pool has lounging areas both in and out of the pool, along with an outdoor shower coming out of the stone wall. There is also a full bathroom servicing this area which is located in the rear guest casita. Everything was thought of when designing this spectacular home. The street side of the home has double paned glass for quiet living. The whole house has a pressurized water system which is complemented by both softening and u.V. Sterilization systems, as well as 8 mini split air conditioners, wireless internet and music, and a video intercom system. There is even a backup generator; just in case.
If you are looking for that special place for your vacation, this is one home which you and your guests are sure to always remember fondly.

This beautifully restored colonial home was perfect for our stay in Merida. The location made for an easy walk to downtown, Santa Lucia park and Paseo Montejo. It's on a street that's very busy during the day but once you step past the door and head toward the interior with it's thick adobe walls you won't hear any traffic noise. The beautiful plunge pool was a welcome respite after a hot day of sightseeing as was the zone system AC. If you appreciate historical architecture with modern amenities this home would be perfect for you. Enjoy!!
We stayed at Casa Mil Amores in February 2016 and were absolutely in heaven. The house is in an excellent location and there is an abundance of restaurants and shops very close by. The casa, was extremely comfortable for 3 couples and just made our vacation in Merida very special. Every room in the house was perfectly designed, from the front salon living room to the back crows nest and the beautiful pool. David and Deborah Ann were excellent hosts and the home and grounds were spotlessly maintained. There is a terrific local market in the mornings right next to the closest church which we all enjoyed much more than the big central market, with vendors selling all kinds of local meat and produce and we had several excellent meals at the stalls adjoining. We loved this magical place very much and all look forward to a return
