Overview

Merida House Rental Photos and Description

Amazing period details, wonderful pool and stunning gardens

This amazing colonial home is located in the heart of La Ermita, Casa Flor de Mayo is a quiet respite in the center of Mérida. Lovingly restored with period details galore, the home is rich with history and charm. From 16-foot beamed ceilings and antique pasta tile to a garden swimming pool complete with fountain, cable TV and wired & wireless internet, old and new blend with style and grace.

Well suited for both short and long term stays, the home features ample room for lounging both indoors in the lush living room or outside on the garden patio.

Sleep comfortably with A/C in each of the two well-appointed bedrooms, or take time out to cook with local ingredients gathered from one of Merida’s many food markets. The beautiful eat-in kitchen has everything you need to whip up guacamole or a gourmet feast.

Don’t feel like cooking? No problem. We can arrange a private chef to cook up Mexican favorites or International fare for you and your guests, or contact us and we’ll have a gourmet meal delivered direct to your door.

Add to that complimentary weekly cleanings for stays over seven days, and you’re ready to unwind, relax and immerse yourself in the history and culture of Merida.

The owner of Casa Flor de Mayo has an eye for decoration and antiques. Delight in the local treasures and historical curiosities that adorn the home. Or head out to the tropical garden for a cerveza, a dip in the pool, and some serious hammock time under tropical palms.

Located in a quiet and safe part of Mérida, Casa Flor de Mayo is perfectly situated for exploring the charms of the city. A former pueblo swallowed up in Merida’s expansion, La Ermita still retains its old-world feel, complete with a charming square and stately church, plus free wifi so you can upload your photos to Facebook.

Stroll north on the cobbled streets of Calle 64, under the original arched gateway into the city and stop for some people watching in Parque San Juan. From there it's a few blocks further on to Merida’s main plaza, Latin America’s oldest cathedral, and fantastic governor's palace.

Feeling hungry? Sit down at one of the many outdoor restaurants lining the main plaza for a coconut sorbet, or to sample some local Yucatecan dishes. After lunch, stroll north along Paseo de Montejo, Merida’s Champs Elysees, for some people watching along this tree-lined boulevard and see some of the grandiose mansions the city has to offer.

After a day of exploring, retire from the hustle and bustle of the city sights and relax by the pool in your quiet colonial paradise.

Stunning property, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5
The Casa Flor de Mayo is a colonial gem in the must-see historical center of Merida - the title of this listing is very apt indeed but if you've seen this place in real life you know that pictures cannot possibly do it justice! A stunning old building, meticulously restored and artfully renovated, full of quirky little details and gorgeously whimsical fixtures furnishings. The owner's love of the property is apparent in every inch of it and her distinctive personal touch gives the place a truly unique quality. Her kindness and hospitality, in addition, made a great experience even better.

The house is conveniently located close to the city center yet far enough from all things touristic, in a lovely local neighborhood with lots of character and color. We loved strolling the streets of the area just soaking up the vibe! The garden and pool were a great respite after a hot day out in the city - and we were often tempted to spend the whole day there without leaving the house at all! We feel very privileged to have stayed in Casa Flor de Mayo and would heartily recommend it to all guests looking for individuality, style and comfort.

Charm and Style

  • 5 of 5
Having travelled extensively throughout the Yucatan, I can say that this colonial rental home is the real deal! Impeccable taste, attention to detail and comfortable surroundings that will make it difficult for you to step out the door to the bustling city that awaits. But upon your return, you will relax in the outdoor patio, dangle your feet in the charming private pool and marvel at the garden and the peacefulness. Every item in the home seems to be chosen and placed with thoughtfulness and an artistic eye. The owner engages local artisans and tradespeople in creating pieces for her home that add to its warm vibe. She has a wealth of knowledge about local cuisine and referred us to the wonderful tiny family run Restaurant Reforma, famous for its chiles rellenos and to the Rosa and Xocolate Hotel/spa where we experienced decadent chocolate desserts. This is a great property for a solo traveller, a couple or a small group. Photos on the site are true to life, but visiting it in person is even better! Thank you Deborah for your hospitality.

An Artistic Haven

  • 5 of 5
This is an artistic haven! This renovated two bedroom house has been lovingly restored by its owner. The attention to detail is beautiful and inspiring! Debra has artistically combined the convenience of the updated bathrooms and kitchen with the carefully restored decorative wall treatments, tiled floors, antique doors and windows. Her skill in decorating is evident everywhere as she celebrates the culture and art of the Yucatan. It was a delight to stay in this centrally located home that was within easy walking distance from the markets and Centre square. Debra was a gracious host and a great resource to me as a new traveler to Merida. I thoroughly enjoyed the Los Dos Cooking Class, trips to the market and Sunday Markets, the Symphony and dinner at Xcantun Hacienda. I look forward to returning to this location.
