For our closer to home getaways, we have an Airstream and enjoy traveling and exploring the Federal & State parks across the southeast.

Why John & Paty Avritt chose Centro
Knowing several individuals over the last decade that have told me how amazing Merida was, I knew it was finally time to go for a visit. In January of 2018 I flew our family down for a week in the city. I can honestly say we were not prepared for how amazing the city is. The people are so nice and welcoming, the food is fantastic, the architecture is brilliant and there's so much to do!! We immediately fell in love with Merida and knew this was the city we will eventually retire to. The day before we left we toured a few homes for sale and Casa Escalera al Cielo was the last home we viewed. When we walked into the home my wife and I knew immediately this was the home for us - we couldn't get the smiles of our face. And the location is AMAZING!!! Being able to walk to everything is huge, but having a home directly in front of a beautiful park and historic church from the early 1700's is magical. At night when everything is lit up, you have to pinch yourself to make sure you're not dreaming. Step back in time and enjoy an amazing home, on a peaceful town square in the heart of the historic downtown.
What makes this House unique
Merida is a truly magical city and the historical downtown is amazing! Casa Escalera al Cielo is right in the middle of it all so you can walk wherever you'd like to go! La Ermita is a quaint area of the El Centro with beautiful cobblestone streets and underground utilities. Directly across the street from the home is Parque de La Ermita as well as the historic church from the early 1700's - La Ermita de Santa Isabel. Just a short walk 7 blocks north you'll find yourself in the heart of the city at the Plaza Grande which is surrounded by numerous cultural centers, museums, & governors palace.
