Overview

Merida Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms With Pool, Roof Top Deck, Perfect For One Or Two Couples

Casa Santa Lucia is located in the desirable central neighborhood of Santa Lucia. A few minutes walk will take you to the beautiful Plaza Grande or to Santa Anna Park, where on Saturday nights all the locals go to watch Mexican dancers, sample delicious homemade foods and buy local Mexican handicrafts. This stunning home, with its custom designed paste tile floors in gorgeous muted tones, also has original exposed beams, stone details in the spa-like baths, and a designer kitchen. The suspended steel and concrete staircase leading to the roof deck make this a unique and sophisticated yet casual Mexican home.

The first floor features a large foyer, comfortable living room with an entertainment center, storage and office area, full bathroom, laundry room, dining room and kitchen. The living and dining area opens to the tropical garden and in ground pool with an outside shower, providing the best of indoor/outdoor living. Upstairs there are two air-conditioned master suites each with a spa like bathroom. The master suite has a large walk in closet, a balcony with a hammock and overlooks the pool and private garden. The rooftop terrace has spectacular views of the Cathedrals, squares and Spanish colonial architecture providing a birds-eye view of all that makes Merida so special.

Stay at home and have a relaxing dinner in the dining room or by the luxurious pool or explore Centro in Merida. Casa Santa Lucia is within walking distance to charming restaurants and local artisan shops.

On a more personal note, when my wife and I were furnishing our house in Merida, a homeless dog was injured outside of our home. It was Mexico’s Independence Day and there was no one to come to the aid of the poor injured dog. After more than 2 hours of trying to locate some help, we finally reached Sylvia Cortes of Evolution Animals, who said “I will be right there”; for this reason and because we are both animal lovers, we vowed that we would donate 10% of the rental income to her organization. Ms. Cortes and her organization of volunteers do a terrific job for the welfare of animals in the Yucatan. This conveniently located home will make your vacation in Merida a memorable and comfortable experience. “Mi casa es su casa”.

Sincerely,

Ellen and Tucker

About Tucker Harris

My wife Ellen and I decided we would take a trip to Merida after we had sold our restaurant in Newport, Rhode Island. With all the demands of owning a restaurant for over 16 years, we had actually never taken a vacation. However, last spring, we decided to venture to Merida after we had heard of how enchanting it was from a close friend who comes every year, as well as from watching several episodes of House Hunters International.

We rented a house that we had seen on Vacation Rentals By Owner and fell in love with Merida. It is such a magical and charming city, filled with unique shops, incredibly beautiful restaurants and wonderful people. We decided that we would look at some houses to potentially purchase while we were in Merida, and Casa Santa Lucia was the second house we visited. All others paled in comparison, so we decided we would make an offer.

We love Merida and our home here and hope that anyone who decides to share our home enjoys it as well.

Tucker Harris purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Tucker Harris chose Merida

If you decided to rental Casa Santa Lucia, not only will you enjoy all the comforts of home with all the amenities, but you will be helping the abandoned animals of the Yucatan, 10% of your rent will be donated to Evolucion Animals, run by Sylvia Cortez.

What makes this townhome unique

One of the best things about our home is that it is centrally located and in close proximity to local shops, restaurants and activities that Merida has to offer. It is only 3 blocks from the city square, Plaza Grande.

Ellen and I decided that we would furnish Casa Santa Lucia to be comfortable; hence, all the furnishings are there because of their comfort. Our design is contemporary with comfort in mind, with a touch of Mexican antiques for their aesthetic beauty. We had a great time buying from local artisans as well as from little-known Cuban artist. We found a quite large beautiful cross at a small antique store close by that was found in a little village near Merida and was made from old beams. The lamps in the bedrooms and some of the pictures were bought from local artisans and artist from the park at Santa Anna’s Saturday night festival.

Relax by the pool, in the comfortable living room with the television with cable, iPod and CD stereo, watch a movie or have a drink on the roof top deck with a view of the city and the church steeples If you stay at Casa Santa Lucia, you will undoubtedly be inclined to relax, put your feet up and enjoy your stay.

Best House, Perfect Location, Fantastic Hosts

  • 5 of 5
This house is what you dream of when you plan your trip, private but centrally located, charming and regional but with all the comforts of home. We arrived late after flying all day. Yesenia and Aaron met us at the house to show us around they had fruit, water, flowers and wine for us, it was so welcoming. My partner asked where he could go get beer and they drove him to the store, showing the highlights of the neighborhood on the way.
We could have stayed within a 4 block radius and been satisfied with the incredible restaurants, Parks and Zocalo, tourist sites but we took a day trip to Progresso, recommended by Tucker. We liked it so much, we grabbed a hotel room and stayed overnight. This house and host were fantastic, we hope to bring our family back next year and discover even more.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5
Tucker was wonderful to work with setting up the reservation before the trip. Yesenia and Aaron (house managers) were wonderful in greeting us and being available for check in with a late arrival. The house was completely ready for our arrival with sufficient toiletries, clean towels in each bathroom, toilet paper, etc. they gave us a thorough tour of the house including important light switches. The kitchen was stocked with coffee, juice, milk, and fruit, and plenty of water. They were knowledgeable on the area and walkable restaurants and attractions. They made themselves available for any questions. The location is perfect, walkable to whatever you might need. If definitely recommend this.

Simply the very best!!!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Merida to attend a two week Spanish language immersion program at the school Calle 55, just around the corner from this fabulous place. The entire experience was the best we've ever had with VRBO. Tucker, the owner, is like your own personal concierge, Silvia, the onsite property manager speaks English like a native and is extraordinarily helpful and efficient and the house...we'll it's perfect! Breakfast in the sundrenched Dining Room, meals prepared in a well stocked and immaculate kitchen, evening appetizers and cocktails served poolside followed by a quick dip and a wonderful sleep in great mattresses. The bathrooms are five star and every convenience works as promised; Wi-Fi, satellite TV, the washers and dryer, the AC, and every kitchen appliance you'd need including a blender for a morning fresh fruit smoothie. The location is perfect; stores are nearby, Walmart is just a walk away and the city squares filled with music, great dining, great shopping and super friendly people all mean that we'll be visiting Merida again, staying in this house again and attending school at Calle 55 (recommended by Tucker, the owner) again. Every expectation was exceeded!

BEST CHOICE FOR A VIST TO MERIDA!

  • 5 of 5
No need to keep searching VRBO for rentals in Merida - Casa Santa Lucia is the one you want! We have visited Merida many times and feel we are now experts on rental properties. The property and location is only one aspect to a great visit - the other being responsible home owners and top quality property management - and this property has both! Owners Tucker & Ellen are both gracious and personable and go out of their way to ensure a great stay. The property manager, Silvia Sánchez is top notch! Silvia answered all our questions and was always available for us. She even made dinner reservations for us! Coffee, fresh fruit and a welcoming bottle of wine for our first night/morning was just icing on the cake for us! We will absolutely choose this property again for our next visit to Merida (we've never stayed at the same property in all our visits) but we will gladly return to Casa Santa Lucia!

Very comfortable living quarters and the kitchen has everything you need to cook meals.

WHAT MORE CAN ONE SAY????

  • 5 of 5
We read the previous seven 5 star reviews before booking Casa Santa Lucia, thinking that some exaggeration was involved. We were wrong. The house is totally deserving of all the praise given to it. And, if you had a previous knowledge of the Merida city layout and were asked where you would like to have a house----this would be the spot.

The photos associated with the property description do a perfect job of reflecting the beauty of this house.

Rather than repeat all that has been said in the previous outstanding reviews---because we agree 100%--- we want to emphasize the care and attention we received from Tucker (property owner) and Silvia (property manager). They both were there for us 24/7, ensuring that all was in order with the house, that our questions about the area were answered, and that we had recommendations for restaurants and things to do. After our two weeks there, we reflected on what more could have been done for us-----we could think of nothing more!
