  • Relaxing, beautiful 10 days!

    "Our youngest graduated from high school so this was family getaway. We have close friends in Merida, so we wanted to be close to the city, yet on the beach. There were 6 of us and everyone had an amazing time. The house was everything that was advertised. We spent most of our time outside in pool, beach and courtyard. We prepared meals outside and enjoyed all of our meals there as well. The sunsets were spectacular!! La Playa, a wonderful seafood restaurant was 2 doors down the beach. Property manager David was awesome and Herb the groundskeeper was attentive and so very helpful! We loved the 2 canine residents and felt safe and secure every minute. We truly cannot wait to book this home again! We rented a car at the airport in Merida from La Curva (thank you Joaquin) which made our trips to Merida so very easy! We stopped at WalMart and Costco in Merida and stocked up on our first day and then bought locally in Chelem and Progresso after that. Thank you Pat, David, Herb and Homeaway for a wonderful vacation."

  • Everything you could want

    "Our hosts Steven and Sanda thought of everything needed to make a holiday special and relaxing. The garden with pool gave a feeling of absolute privacy and solitude in the middle of a busy city. From making fresh squeezed O.J. to roasting a lamb leg the kitchen had it all. The bedroom mattress and pillows were 5 star making for a great sleep. I loved this home and will be back again."

  • 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!"

  • Lovely Vacation Beach House

    "We stayed in this beach house for three weeks, and had a great vacation. The roof top was fantastic for sun bathing and catching a breeze, listening to music, watching ships go by, watching the fishermen, watching birds, watching sunsets, watching stars. The beach was a thrill for seashell picking, what a wonderful selection! We felt so at home and so comfortable it was actually hard to leave! Even though the property manager doesn't live in Chelem, she did a great job of taking care of things for us(thanks Ivonne, you were awesome). The day we arrived Ivonne the property manager asked us if we had eaten yet and when we said no, she took us to a fantastic local restaurant La Terracita just a short ways from the house. I would recommend this house to others, I would also stay here again. The only thing we thought we might look for next time is a house with a pool, but only because the Norte's made it difficult to go in the water and apparently this has been an unusual year for so many Norte's. We found the beds hard to get used to, but after a week we adjusted. We love the local people, and also the next door neighbors Theresa and Bill are super wonderful:)"
