  • Kathleen's Excellent B&B

    "My wife and I stayed with Kathleen and Carlos for three memorable weeks. They were super friendly hosts who made us feel right at home. It was our first time staying in a B&B. The house is located in a fairly quiet residential neighbourhood. We always felt safe walking home in the dark. It takes about 40 minutes to walk from their house to Plaza Grande, which is in the heart of Centro. We walked to and from town, and used taxis to get around because they are inexpensive. We were impressed by their house. It was always kept clean and tidy, and it was nicely decorated with some of Kathleen's own art work. A laundry room is on the premises. It was handy to be able to do our washing and drying for only 40 pesos. We were happy with our room. It was spacious, and it had a view of their lovely backyard. We enjoyed having our own large private bathroom, and sleeping on a comfortable queen size bed. The air conditioner was quiet and reliable so we always got a good night sleep. Breakfast was a real plus. Every day we woke up to a variety of homemade meals that were delicious. Fruits that were grown on Kathleen's property were included with breakfast. Kathleen went overboard in helping us figure out what to see and do in Merida. Since we didn't speak much Spanish she would make phone calls on our behalf, arrange tours, make reservations, and book taxis. This helped alleviate a lot of stress that we would have otherwise encountered. We highly recommend you stay with Kathleen and Carlos if you want to have an enjoyable vacation."

  • 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!"

  • The authentic and magical Mexico!

    "This was my 4th visit to Hacienda Sac Chich and if I thought it was amazing before, I was blown away by it now. The owners have continued to refine this property, going to any and every length to ensure its authenticity, beauty, and comfort. Their eye for the artistic and dramatic offer a feast for the senses. I tried to snap photos for social media bragging rights, but I could never do it justice. On this particular trip we were 4 couples for a 5-night getaway and it couldn't have been more perfect. Based on the owners recommendation we had an exceptional dinner in nearby Merida, we hired a wonderful massage therapist to come to the hacienda for a few treatments, we visited nearly a cenote a day - each one more wonderful than the next, climbed the Mayan ruins, and were thrilled at our good fortune that there was a festival/rodeo/bullfight right in their little village the weekend of our visit! But mostly, we just enjoyed this magical place with our big decisions each day being which pool to dip in, which location to watch the sunset from, and what kind of margaritas we would serve at happy hour. If you need to escape the stresses of life, turn back time, rejuvenate - this is where you need to be. And just in case you're not able to fully shut off the outside world (full disclosure - that includes me) they do have wifi ; )"
