"We had a great stay. 3 nights in mid-July. The city gets hot/humid that time of year, but you can still stay cool in the house! Even though pool is small and shallow, it managed to stay refreshing throughout the day and night. Overall great style, very clean, awesome laundry.
Couple of things to note:
- Gentleman who let us in when we arrived mentioned internet would be down for 12-24 hours. It never came back the whole time we were there. There are plenty of travel books available in the house, so we weren't totally in the dark, but the location isn't easy walking-distance any internet cafes (as far as our disconnected research could find), so if you're planning on doing work while travelling, that might be problem here. Or maybe it was a one-time thing. :)
- Location is great if you have a car. All of our research for exploring Merida pointed us north quite a ways, so I don't recommend this house if you're without a car. We walked it a few times, but the crowded sidewalks, zooming busses, and heat made the walk unpleasant to do over and over.
- Friendly neighbor woke us up on a Sunday morning to let us know to move our car due to a weekly street closing for bicycles. He seemed surprised that we weren't warned. Very nice guy! There were a couple other cars parked still on the street that didn't get towed, but I'm happy to not have taken any chances. Check with the owners about the Sunday parking issue to get more clarity.
Again, overall very happy, definitely 5 stars."
