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).

About Peter Curry

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

Why Peter Curry chose Merida

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.

What makes this house unique

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...).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed staying there. We weren't sure we were going to like it after staying in a renovated colonial, but we really did. The design is stunning, and we particularly liked the furniture, which was much more comfortable than what we had in the other house, particularly the beds and pillows. The towels were great too. The fact that there were several outdoor spaces where one could go and read was nice for a group -- we each had our own private space. The outdoor furniture was high quality and there was a lot of it, so we could each have a lounge, couch or chair, which wasn't true in many of the homes we looked at.



Isabel met us and showed us around the house, and we thought she was terrific -- very thorough and action-oriented. Based on our experience at the other property, your property managers were much better.



We visited Chichen Itza very early one morning before the crowds arrived and the kids were lamenting the fact that they couldn't climb the pyramids which we had done many years earlier. We went to Ek Balam which is another group of ruins where you can still climb, and they really enjoyed it. We also went to the cenote that they have on site, which was much more adventuresome than others we've visited in the past. We didn't pay the extra fees, but when we arrived at the cenote itself, the guides allowed everyone to do the Tarzan swing which was a bit of a thrill for we old people

There is no reason to stay in any hotel in Merida when you could stay at Casa 64. Everything was perfect and we felt like locals. Staying with another couple, we had all of the common space and private pool to hang out all together. Great design and furniture.

We have rented many properties thru VRBO in several countries and Casa 64 was right up there with our best experiences. The owner and property manager couldn't be more attentive.

Fantastic Property with Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5
This home was well appointed with an excellent selection of kitchen gadgets, plenty of towels, and beautifully furnished. The beds are very comfortable. The pool is amazing!! The pictures do not do justice to this home. The house is within walking distance to Plaza Grande and Santa Lucia. There are excellent dining venues within blocks. Fantastic!! I highly recommend this property!!

Great House in Outstanding Location

  • 5 of 5
I've stayed in Merida a number of times. It is a fascinating city and I'm still getting to know its secrets. One thing I do know is that you want your vacation house to be near the major points of interest. This house is just that - it's a perfect location. Plus, the house is designed in a beautiful modern style that truly brings the outdoors in. The photos really don't do it justice as the house is gorgeously furnished and very well equipped. I'd stay here again in a heart-beat.

Beautiful property and central location

  • 5 of 5
We are so happy with our decision to rent this property! The pictures do not capture the true beauty and luxury of the house. The property is well maintained and the owners and staff did everything possible to make sure our stay was perfect. The owners of the house are friendly, personable and sent several emails to make sure we had everything we needed. If you plan to visit Merida, this is the place to stay!!

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Casa 64

  • 5 of 5
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!!!
