"We stayed in this lovely house for 5 nights while travelling round the Yucatan peninsula, and couldn't have chosen a better place to stay.
The location is excellent, walkable to the local squares, shops, restaurants, etc. There is a fabulous ice cream parlour just a 2 minute walk down the road. Although a car is not needed in Merida, we were travelling so had a hire car which enabled us to have day trips to Cuzuma cenotes (excellent directions provided in the house) and Celestum to see the flamingos. I note someone else commented on difficulties with the garage entrance being blocked and I must say we didn't have any problems with this at all. Access was never a problem and it was very easy to reverse out on to the street.
Excellent service was provided with booking, payment, local activity information etc. We were greeted on arrival and made very welcome. All communication was very quick and efficient.
Two specific points- firstly the second bedroom is across the courtyard and separate from the main house but very private, secure and enclosed. This suited us fine as enabled our 2 grown up daughters to have a bit of space from us parents!
Secondly, in response to a comment Jane made under another review 'Parque St Lucia ... where there are wonderful restaurants and shops, and Yucatan dances performed on a Thursday night and Sunday lunch time'. We stayed Thursday to Tuesday and this square, a few minutes walk away, was fabulous. Local dances, local mayan ball game, so atmospheric that I would highly recommend trying to include Thursday and Sunday in any stay if at all possible.
This was our favourite place in Mexico, very friendly, plenty to do but not necessarily on the usual tourist route especially for europeans- we met no other visitors from the UK while there.
A must for experiencing the wonderful mexican lifestyle,food and hospitality.
Would love to return and nowhere better to stay in Merida. Will certainly recommend to friends and family."
