Thank You to Dave & Shari for sharing this lovely property with us.
Enjoyed every minute of our time here. Beautiful home and a good location.
The pool was great, a fantastic treat at the end of the day! We loved the back yard and took naps in the hammocks. All the necessities and more. Microwave, gas stove, coffee maker, alarm clock, bottled water, ceiling fans and air conditioning, stereo and some CD’s. The “more” would be a TV, because who would watch TV when there is a pool! Easy walk to more activities then we were able to do, at the same time, a very quiet neighborhood where the home is located.
The home & outdoor area are very clean and well maintained. Saturday our towels and bedding were changed and washed. The people involved with this property were fantastic, from Dave & Shari, LeAnn (the property manager), Javier (transportation to/from airport, as well as a liquor store) and Maria. Also a huge thanks to LeAnn for setting up our Uxmal tour with Carlos, hands down the best tour guide we’ve ever had. They made our trip effortless.
Bug free. Sure there were a couple here and there while sitting by the pool at dusk, but no problems other then that. I mention it because of another review that said it was full of mosquitos. I slept in the rear of the main house, with all the windows open and the screens functioned fine.
We plan to visit Palenque in the future, and, after talking to Carlos, plan to base the trip from Merida. We’d rent Casa Esplendida again in a heart beat. Thanks Again!
Tips: Get a city map, maybe from a magazine or they may have one on a table in the entry. It is really easy getting around in Merida. All north/south Calles (streets) seem to be even numbered and the east/west are odd. We felt very safe at all times. Taking cabs are inexpensive and easy. A member of our party loved the walking tour of homer that left from the English Library, literally across the street. Obtain Pesos, you’ll need them. Not a lot of dollars get used here. Check out the local information in the home near the front door, brouchers and such. A little Spanish or a language guide goes a long ways, for example, all menus we encountered were only in Spanish.
Thanks for sharing your home,
Owner's Response: Hola Greg.
Thanks so much for your kind words. Sorry about the TV, we do have a large flat screen which was unfortunately in for repairs....we do agree however, that very little time is ever spent in front of the tube. Although Javier did bring his personal TV to our home for a period of time, and we are so grateful for that, ours should be back soon.
We do feel we have a good team of folks working together that enable our clients to make the memories of a lifetime that they are looking for. Comfort, convince, peacefulness, is all attributed to Casa Esplendidas location, owners, and team. Thanks again for recognizing this and your kind words...they mean so much to us.
We hope your family and friends will be visiting again soon. Merida is an excellent hub to take in all the Yucatan has to offer.
Dave & Shari
