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.
