We are an retired couple. We live in Toronto for the summer and in Mexico during the winter months. We have a large beautiful home in Mexico which has a guest house in the rear garden which we rent it to guests.

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.

A really wonderful place, la casa es better than it looks in the photos, very well equipped, the swimming pool is great.
Very friendly and kind hosts, definitively a great place to stay in Merida
Un logement de qualite, design contemporain, tres belle piscine dans un jardin luxuriant, a 5mn en voiture du centre de Merida. Une belle adresse avec un bon accueil, a recommander....
This was our second visit to Casa del Jardin, and it was just as good as the first! We love the peaceful location, the luscious jungle with carefully tended paths, the well-maintained pool, and the comfortable casita. Douglas and Kerry are excellent hosts who can give you lots of advice about Merida and its environs.
My husband and I just returned from having spent a wonderful month in Douglas and Kerry's beautiful casita. After a long day and evening of travel, it was perfect to be picked up at the airport and then to find that Douglas had provided us with fresh fruit, yoghurt, croissants & coffee for the morning. That just set the tone for how very thoughtful both Douglas and Kerry were during our entire stay. The casita was surprisingly spacious due to its unique and lovely design. And, I can't rave enough about the pool and gardens! They need to be experienced to be truly appreciated.
But, perhaps the best aspect of our stay was our hosts. Both Douglas and Kerry were readily available and helpful yet respectful of our privacy. Their kindness and warmth really made us feel at home.
I've already begun recommending this place to my friends and family. And, we are hoping to be able to visit again soon!
My girlfriend and I stayed at Casa Del Jardin just after the New Years. Douglas and Kerry were gracious hosts, greeting us at the door and sharing a few of their local haunts to get us stared on our journey through Merida.
The apartment was exceptionally clean and well-designed. Having come off nearly a week living in more "beachy" conditions in Tulum, we welcomed the luxurious shower and numerous ceiling fans.
I could go on, but my words would hardly suffice to explain how much we enjoyed this spot. Do yourself a favor: Go ahead and check it out for yourself.
Douglas e Kerry foram hóspedes muito legais. Organizados, ordeiros e cuidaram do apartamento muito bem. Não temos nenhuma reclamação a fazer. A nossa comunicação foi muito fácil e sempre com respostas rápidas. Serão sempre benvindos e os recomendamos como hóspedes.
Douglas & Kerry are excellent Guests, polite, very very organize, clean and respect all the house rules ! They are very welcome all the time! We strongly recommend then!
Douglas is an excellent host, great communication, he and Kerry left the apartment in order and I imagine that seized the city of Rio. I hope to see them soon in Sao Paulo during the tour they are doing... or more often when they return to Brazil.
Doug and Kerry stayed in our studio for two weeks. They are friendly and interesting people and were quiet and considerate during their stay. They clearly took the effort to leave the place very clean after their stay. We can happily recommend them as guests and hope they stay again in the future.
Douglas was a great guest! He left the place nice and clean and even left some goodies behind for the next guests. I would have absolutely no hesitation recommending him to future hosts. And he is certainly welcome back at Kensington Suites any time.
