NEWLY RENOVATED COLONIAL HOME, SANTA ANA (WITH POOL)

Merida House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed, 2 Bath on quiet street

Newly renovated architectural home blends all the comfort and sophistication of modern living, with charm and simplicity of the Colonial heritage. The house is bright and open allowing light and air to fill the spaces. The two bedrooms are both separate and quiet with identical ensuite baths. The living spaces begin with the classic reception room, which flows through the kitchen and dining area to a glass sliding wall to the covered patio and private back garden, complete with large pool and shaded sitting areas. There is also a stair to the roof deck for those wishing to soak up the sun or enjoy the cool evening breeze or a quiet morning coffee while watching the birds fly through the trees.

The house is located on a nice quiet street without much traffic (no buses !). Walking distance to all the sights and sounds of this wonderful city.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome

From Vancouver, Canada - my wife and I have both fallen in love with the Yucatan (and Merida in particular). As an architect, I always wanted a vacation home in a place with real character and architectural interest. We aren't ready to retire just yet, so it seems right to let others experience what we love about the place.

Owners purchased this house in 2012

The home could not be better situated to experience all that you would want to see in Merida. It also is located on a very quiet street without bus traffic (cannot be underestimated). The neighbourhood is safe and quiet, and the people very friendly.

The home has been restored with respect to the original design of these wonderful colonial homes, but with a slightly modern feel. There is a good separation of space, but also a good flow which means you can have as much privacy or entertaining as you like. The tall ceilings and open spaces make the home quite comfortable and relaxing.

WONDERFUL LOCATION, GREAT POOL, TERRIFIC KITCHEN.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this newly renovated colonial for three months from the beginning of January. The location can't be beat, right in the historic Centro area, a 10 to 15 minute walk to shops, restaurants, markets, the central square, and entertainment. The Merida English Library is 2 blocks away, and is a social and cultural centre for the English speaking community. Neighbours are friendly, and there are yoga classes and exercise classes available within a block. The photos accurately reflect the property, except that that it is actually larger than it appears in many of the pictures. The completely private, enclosed courtyard at the back has a lovely pool that we used daily.. We ate all our meals there, read, used the WIFI etc., everything except cooking and sleeping. The kitchen is well designed and suited us perfectly. We both like to cook and appreciated the large pantry and prep area. There are two full bathrooms with generous sized showers and lots of places to put things. It was an absolutely perfect place for the two of us, though another couple could easily have shared the space. Any issues or questions we had were addressed by the nearby English speaking property manager, who always responded promptly. A local phone was provided, we just had to load it with a prepaid card. The property owner was great to deal with and visits the property frequently. We will definitely rent there again iwhen we next return to Merida.

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, AND QUIET LOCATION IN MERIDA

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Amanda from November 28th to December 7th. This property is exactly as described in the listing, but was actually even nicer upon arrival. The home was immaculate in cleanliness, and very comfortable, especially the beds. Having a fully equipped kitchen was great for cooking, but because of the local cuisine offered in Merida, we generally ate out.

The house is located in a quiet area of the city, but within walking distance of the Plaza Grande, Paseo de Montejo, and if you like to walk, the main market shopping area. There are a few restaurants relatively close by, but most are closer to the Plaza, or on Paseo de Montejo. A few comida economicas are within throwing distance of the house, if you prefer something lighter, but they close early.

If you prefer to ride, you can catch a bus a couple of blocks away. The quietness of the location, being on a not-so-busy street cannot be overstated as Merida is quite a lively city.

If I had to provide critical feedback it would be that finding parking very close to the property could present a problem at certain times of day, however we did not have a car.

BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
Sorry for not writing this review earlier, we have been busy since we returned in Oct.

We absolutely loved your home. The care taken in the restoration is really evident. We loved the kitchen layout and cupboard doors to the pantry, the bedrooms were perfect size and the bathrooms were great. The flooring was beautiful and the paint colors were really tasteful. The pool was wonderful and loved the back yard and patio.

We really enjoyed your home and would not hesitate to recommend it to others. We actually already have, guests in the house next door asked us if we liked it and we told them it was great and gave them your email.
