most historic boulevard, which runs through the heart of the city. Casa del Jardín is just a 30

La Casa del Jardin was a great space to spend 8 days. Doug and Kerry are perfect hosts - always available when needed yet giving guests all the privacy you could ask for .The casita is (email hidden)fy bed, places to sit, air conditioning if needed. The garden and pool really are spectacularly beautiful. Location is ideal if you want to be a little out of the centro historico, which is still easy to walk or drive to. A terrific oasis in the city.
Doug and Kerry were extremely welcoming. Walked me thru the casita and explained how everything worked. A large bowl of fresh fruit was presented at arrival. And the bananas kept coming the entire month I was there. The pool is amazing. It is a pool that you can actually do laps in. When you sit in the Garden surrounded by exotic plants and trees and hear the sounds of birds you do not even realise you are in a city of almost 1 million people. Loved the neighborhood. Quiet, real and there were several restaurants for anyone's palette and wallet. There is even a place to get your haircut and have a massage right around the corner at reasonable prices. It is a 20 minute walk to the Historical Square or a 5 minute 7 peso bus ride less than 2 blocks away. Close to the English Library too. I loved it. The casita was larger than I expected and was well appointed. Hosts with the "mosts" always asking if I had enough water, towels etc. Although we shared the pool I rarely saw our hosts go in and they sat by their home. So I really had the whole garden to myself. The internet via landline worked well, but if you are looking for only wireless you will have to stand in certain spots in the garden (close to their home) to get reception. But not the end of the world for me. Will definitely be back next year assuming there is availability. Would have liked to have a news station in English, but I am in Mexico so I just practiced up on my Spanish when I watched the news or other programs. Casa Del Jardin is great for a single person or a couple. And one does not need a car although a space is provided. It is private and secure. You will love it. Wendy R.
Gerard and I really enjoyed our second stay at Casa Del Jardin. Douglas and Kerry were great hosts and we felt very at home. Douglas sent us really good instructions on the best route to take from the Cancun highway to their house in Merida. It was so easy to follow which helped a great deal when driving in to Merida by car for the first time.
We would recommend this wonderful garden villa to anyone wanting to stay in a convenient location in Merida with or without a car.
We're not sure when we will be able to return to Merida but we would definitely stay at Casa del Jardin if possible.
Thanks Douglas and Kerry
Doug and Kerry have a beautiful place and made us feel perfectly at home. They were very hospitable and helpful, and at the same time, gave us plenty of space and privacy. I honestly wish we had more time to visit and get to know them better. They are great people, cultured, very interesting, and have a sense of humor.
The house, garden, and pool are magnificent. The bed was very comfortable, and the rooms are quiet, airy, and well-appointed. The location is perfect, not too close to the centro but just far enough. I can easily say that this was my favorite airbnb experience to date.
We had a great time during our stay. The location is excellent. The flat is spacious, clean, and comfy. We definitely appreciated the fresh fruit and pastries as it can take a day or two to find what you need. The garden is an oasis of beautiful plants. If we find ourselves in Merida again, we will surely stay at Casa del Jardin.
Casa del Jardin worked perfectly for us, as a place to stay and as a base for exploring Merida and the area. Directions worked perfectly and although Douglas was away he arranged for friends to welcome us and help us find our way around.
The house is both very attractive and very comfortable; the garden and pool are stunning (remember a bit of insect repellant). It is an interestingly variable 25 minute walk into the historical centre; stay on the shady side of the street. Shopping for food and drink locally was fine. Jose is very thorough in his care of the garden and pool. We hope to return at some point in the future.
