  • Wonderful Colonial in Downtown

    "My wife and I stayed at Casa de Mosaicos from October 29 through November 5, 2016. We loved every minute spent in this beautifully restored colonial home in Merida Centro. This home has gorgeous authentic tile, huge ceilings, bright colors and tasteful decorations throughout. Casa de Mosaicos retains its original colonial feel with large, wooden doors throughout. The home is wide open and spacious, lending to a feeling of lightness and freedom! One enters the home into a large, beautiful Fourier flanked by a spacious living room area (complete with cable TV!). Beyond is a large dining area, and beyond that a spacious kitchen with all the modern amenities. The enormous master bedroom is accessed via either the living room or dining area. It has a nice en suite with a huge shower. Leading outside from the dining area is a cozy, enclosed patio with a beautiful blue dipping pool. Off this patio is another living area with two twin beds and another en suite bathroom with a huge bathtub! A narrow set of stairs leads up from the patio to a spacious deck area. All the rooms have their own separate air-conditioning units which made things comfortable. Internet worked great too. Casa de Mosaicos is perfectly located on Calle 55 in downtown Merida. Parks (Santa Ana, Santa Lucia), restaurants (Chaya and Aguayo), shopping, history and culture are mere steps away. The beautiful Plaza de la Independencia, flanked by the Catedral de Merida, Palacio de Gobierno and Palacio Municipal, are a few short blocks away. It’s so convenient to experience all Merida has to offer. The owner, Jane, is so responsive, gracious and personable. And we knew that Andrea, the property manager, was always available should we need anything whatsoever. We truly loved everything about our stay at Casa de Mosaicos, and highly recommend it for anyone seeking an authentic, peaceful refuge in the middle of historic Merida!"

  • Cozy, comfortable retreat, very responsive and polite Property Mgmt!

    "We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Barenda! The property is tastefully decorated; contemporary yet retaining the Mexican Mayan elements that make Merida so special. Everything you need is within walking distance, and with the convenience of Uber (reserved for those rainy afternoons) we didn't miss having a car at all. The little pool was so fun for our kids and to relax after a busy day of walking. The kitchen, although in our opinion too small for meal prep & cooking for a family of 4, offers everything you need if you were to cook and eat in! With the convenience of having Mercado de Santiago and all the restaurants of Santa Lucia within a few blocks, as well as the extremely reasonable prices, we ate out/ordered in for every meal for a fraction of what it would cost in the States. The rooftop terrace was perfect to have a drink and enjoy the cool afternoon breeze. Our only concern was not realizing that the second bedroom was separate from the main structure, accessible through the pool/courtyard area. It does have a lock and key, but with younger kids we wouldn't have been comfortable leaving them there for the night. The 4 of us ended up sharing the main bedroom, and the kids slept great in their own hammock! Our electric bill wasn't outrageous (the equivalent of ~30 USD for 4 nights), but we were very stingy running the AC's only when needed. We would love to come back once our kids are older and they can have their own room! We definitely recommend this property for couples traveling together, or for families with teenage kids. Thank you Tim and your team at Merida Rentals & Property Management!"

  • Loved it!

    "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."

  • Comfort, Spacious and so so Beautiful. "Thank You!"

    "Our friends shared this home and from the moment we arrived, everything was taken care of. With a warm welcome and drinks at the ready, then after a quick refresh from traveling, we were given a light tour of the home. We were also given a local map, a quick orientation and directions, for easy walking to get to the main market and some local restaurants. This was a really nice way to start our perfect holiday knowing we were completely taken care of. As for the house - it's Stunning! It's completely unique and offers all the privacy, comfort and calm you want, when you want it. We already miss being there and hope we can make this happen again. Thank you both!"
