More details:

Explore Merida and the Yucatan from this sophisticated and contemporary environment - it is truly a luxury.

64 is your own private boutique space - and has been accessorized and furnished accordingly. There is a spectacular pool suite with a movable glass wall, as well as an exceptional master suite with 20 ft high beamed ceilings and reading loft, both with en-suite bathrooms.

This is a light-filled property in the day, and well thought out night-lighting makes for a dramatic evening environment. You can enjoy the sun pool-side, or on the large upper terrace, or enjoy the warmth in the shade in either of two covered terraces.

The well appointed, open-concept kitchen is set up for cooking and opens to the outdoor terrace for al fresco dining and lounging.

Our local english/spanish speaking property manager will be happy to assist renters with arrangements (cars, tours, chef, extra cleaning, airport transfers) and can also arrange to have groceries waiting on your arrival.

64 is a unique balance of colonial and modern architecture located in the UNESCO-protected historic centre (Centro Historico) of Merida, and is ideally situated just four blocks from Parque Santa Lucia and from the main square.

The architect has retained the Colonial facade, and created a modern and contemporary interior. The tilework is an example of how the architect has created a modern property which still references its historical and contextual background - the tilework on the living room and master suite floors, and the kitchen backsplash is a traditional Yucatecan design which has been modified and updated so that it is a simpler two-tone design.

Henry Ponce won the Architectural Digest Award for 'Icons of Design' for Casa 64. Henry is well-known for his ability in blending colonial and contemporary styles. The video attached to this listing shows the flow of the house (note the furniture has changed since this video was shot).

As a couple of Canadians edging toward the dream of retirement, we're always looking for a great warm place in the winter to get away from our busy lives. We love great architecture, design, art and comfortable spaces where we can relax and entertain friends/family.

Peter Curry purchased this house in 2012

Merida is authentic Mexico - and this house is at the center of it all. We get to Merida as often as we can and wanted an easy, spectacular rental property we could call our own. This house certainly fits the bill.

We bought the house in early 2012. The former owners had fantastic taste and we were lucky to keep the best of their furniture. We've updated the living room with new furniture and with a personal love of cooking, fitted out the kitchen fit for a chef.

The architect, Henry Ponce delivers on the design details. A perfect balance of old colonial and contemporary features blends to an open, airy concept that works! Many houses of Merida are dark but Casa 64 offers open spaces with wide open doors (spare bedroom with a glass wall that completely opens beside the pool!) and multiple covered and uncovered patios.

The two king beds are the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in (I travel a ton and know good/bad beds), the bedrooms are spacious and ensuite are beautifully appointed.

The house is only four blocks from Plaza Grande, Merida's central and largest square. The same distance from Parc Santa Lucia. A couple blocks further and you find yourself in the main market. Its central location means you absolutely don't need a car for your vacation....and yet there is parking right next door if you have a rental car arranged to see the many sites in the surrounding area (cenotes, Mayan ruins, Tulum, Uxmal, Chelum, Progreso...).

My wife and I have stayed in several VRBO properties over the years. We rented this home in Merida for three weeks this January, and found it to be among the best we have experienced. The house is modern, well appointed, clean and comfortable. The owners were always responsive and a pleasure to deal with.
We are great walkers. For those unfamiliar with Merida, this property is within walking distance of Grand Plaza, other parks, museums, galleries, theaters, shops, good restaurants and bus stations for those out of the city trips to Chichen Itza, Izamal, Progresso, and similar destinations. That said, Merida is a large city where bus, motorbike, truck and car traffic is fairly heavy - and the sidewalks are narrow. Pedestrians need to be alert!
All around, our visit to Merida was thoroughly enjoyable and residing here helped make it so. You won't be disappointed with this home.

I cannot say enough good things about Casa 64. It is magnificent! The house was designed by Henry Ponce and he has all the details just perfect. It is contemporary in style which is just what I read from the pictures. We lived "outside" 24/7. It is the same temperature both day and night. We lived on the main level only as we fell in love with the poolside bedroom and ensuite-all in white-my favorite color and air conditioned at night! We lived under the canopy roof with living room sectional and designer white dining set during the day when we were not up to more suntanning on the upstairs deck. We had total privacy with the high walls surrounding us. I am a white fan but the fuschia pink wall along the stairs just accented that!
Then there's more. The owner was the most hospitable person! He was our tour guide(via e-mail) caring and knowledgeable about tours, car rentals, doctors, restaurants etc.etc. He is the best ambassador that Merida could have! His staff is first class as well. The housekeeping was impeccable and the house manager was totally attentive, gracious, generous and dependable.
Casa 64 is two blocks from everything one would want to do in Centro ( For the Mayan ruins one needs to use transportation!!!) It is close to markets, artisan shops, plazas, symphony concerts (some free admission), art galleries, restaurants (We counted 17 different ones that we tried-Tratto four times!). The best location!!! A great experience!!!
Owner's Response: S&T - From start to finish, it was a pleasure to be in contact with you about your trip. I'm glad you enjoyed the house and that you could take time to add Merida to your list of adventures this winter! Looking forward to having you back again some time.

The only disappointment was having to leave! The house is absolutely beautiful and modern (the pics don't do it justice). From the outdoor sound system to the unbelievable master bedroom and bath - this house is top notch! I wanted to pack the master bathroom and bring it home with me! The location of the house could not be more perfect. We walked to restaurants, markets and of course the Grand Plaza. The owners of the house are extremely personable and have great communication skills. We really appreciated the helpful tips and suggestions about Merida - and we tried them all! We are looking forward to our return to Merida and we will definitely choose this property again! Enjoy!

Spectacular house in the colonial core

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 30, 2013

Casa 64 is a spectacular house, a blend of ultra modern design and amenities integrated with classic colonial elements. The house is extremely quiet, spacious and airy, with a large outdoor living area with very comfortable seating. The outdoor area on the ground floor is sufficiently shaded throughout the day to spend all your time there, despite the heat. The kitchen is very well equipped. The bedrooms are spacious and quiet and the beds are very comfortable. The pool is surprisingly large and the lighting throughout the house is very tasteful.
The house is ideally situated in the center of town, no more than a 5 minute walk to Santa Lucia park, Parque principal/Merida Cathedral and most restaurants in the central (colonial) core. It is an easy 20 minute walk to Parque del Centenario and its free (and wonderful) zoo. Parking is available across the street from the house at a very reasonable cost (though you don’t need a car in Merida). Very easy to do half-day or full-day trips to Mayan sites (Dzibilchaltun, Uxmal, ruta Puuc, Mayapan, Oxkintoc among others), even Campeche and incredible Edzna are an easy day trip by car. The beach (Progresso area) is about 40 minutes away by car. The owner and property manager were incredibly helpful and responsive, both prior to arrival and during our stay. The house was very clean and obviously very well maintained. Everything was perfect.
