2nd time back for us and still completely happy with our stay. House is ideal for us, neighborhood great, city excellent. Silvia, the agent, is completely helpful and the owner is instantly reachable and also very helpful. The house is very spare and elegant but if you are looking for more plushness you should select a different style of house. We like it just the way it is.
A great house in a great location. Nice and cool even on humid days. Easy walk to Centro and all it has to offer. Adam was always quick to respond and we always had someone there to help in Merida.
I've had this beautiful house on my wish list for over two years. It was well worth the wait! We arrived a bit late but, were still able to rendezvous with the lovely hostess, and enjoy a walk through of the space, which is always very helpful; especially in a foreign place. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to prepare a meal/snack. The upstairs den was equipped with a large screen TV and easily over 200+ movies to watch; the kids loved that! We throughly enjoyed our stay! We even washed clothes and hung them to dry on both floors-that was fun!One thing I must honestly forewarn future guests about...it may be very difficult at times to get out of the house. All the wonderful creature comforts that are available made it a chore at times to simply get out and enjoy Merida and the surrounding region. But really...who can complain
La pasamos muy bien en El Caballito, se trata de una casa amplia, cómoda, colorida, cercana al centro de Mérida y con acabados muy padres. Es ideal para 2 parejas, se las recomiendo ampliamente,
Excellent accommodation in a quiet part of the historic center of Merida.
Beautiful modernist design with classic touches. This is an open and airy space with multiple levels that communicate easily with each other. Great for dinner parties!
Had a great time in Merida. The house is well appointed, spacious and in a great location, right near the Mercado Santiago. Ruben, the property manager, was very helpful. I was there with my wife and a friend of ours but the property could easily accommodate two couples. Great place. If staying in Merida, don't miss it.
This is really a fantastic place to hang out a few days. We loved the modern architecture, the clean wide open space and the terrace. The huge kitchen is great for cooking your own stuff and everything else was just perfect (showers, beds, etc). Oh, and the location: we liked the neighborhood, a few blocks from downtown, a little corner store just close by, as well as bars and a few restaurants within a short walk where you can get the real local vibe, off the touristy spots.
