Suzanne's house in Merida is stylish, functional and very comfortable. The house is even nicer than the pictures suggest. The pool and lovely garden are added features. Suzanne was great to deal with answering our questions and responding to our concerns promptly. Truly, a pleasure to deal with. The home is situated in la Ermita, about a 20 minute walk from downtown and the central market. Highly recommended.
When we arrived we we meet by Ivonne , host rep. Very nice and helpful. Provide a few items for our fridge which was truely appreciated after a long travel.
Thank you for staying at our home, and for your review. I am also sharing the private message you sent me below.
Very comfortable and private. Had every thing we needed and then some . Also beautiful garden area and pool. Wonderful. Only thing we could have used was a barbecue. But other than that perfect. Made our time in Merida very enjoyable.
This is a dream home to stay in for vacation. My husband and I chose to stay here for one week during our wedding anniversary. The house is in a location only a few blocks from the historic center of Merida where there are really great local shops and restaurants (I recommend La Jarana). Inside the home there is all you need to feel comfortable, safe and relaxed. We had an excellent time and will definitely try to come back soon. Both the owner and manager were prompt in responding and helping us meet our needs during our stay. Great home! You will love the pool!!
The house and garden look exactly as the pictures show. Both are beautiful. It was a pleasure to stay in this house. It is in the middle of a very busy city, but the minute you open the front door, you enter a private paradise. I loved swimming every day and hearing the birds sing. The property is clean and we had plenty of towels, dishes, electronic equipment, etc. Susan was helpful and prompt in all her confirmation e-mails and directions. The property manager, Ivonne, was extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. She even loaned us her old personal cell phone, when ours didn't work in Mexico. I only have positive memories of my week in Merida and this house. Thank you, Susan and Ivonne.
