I live in Vancouver Canada with my husband and 2 cats.

Carole Segal purchased this house in 2013

We fell in love with Merida, and this house in particular, while vacationing in the Yucatan. We will use Casa Violeta as our vacation home and as a rental until we move to Merida in a few years time.

Casa Violeta is a beautiful old colonial home with high ceilings, arches, beautiful handmade pasta tile floors, and a lovely private pool and garden. Merida is a very clean and safe city with amazing architecture and the people of Merida are very friendly and helpful. The house is in the best area of Historico Centro and everything of interest is a short walk away.

VERY ENJOYABLE STAY IN CASA VIOLETA!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from a very enjoyable stay in Merida. Casa Violeta is in the perfect location (walking distance) to practically everything. Both the owner (Carole) and the property manager (Carlos) were extremely attentive and responded to any questions immediately. The property is much larger/better than the pictures portray. The pool was so nice to cool off in on a hot day.

Some highlights:

The people. Everyone is very friendly in Merida.
Take the 9am Tuesday Home and Garden Tour at the Merida English Library (just around the corner). It will give you a look at 4-5 properties that have been renovated around the area.
Have some drinks by the pool.
Take a "beach day" and take the bus to Progreso (I think it only cost $3 for the both of us).
Tour Uxmal or Chichen Itza

CASA VIOLETTA: A GREAT URBAN OASIS!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Casa Violetta in Merida! The location in the old part of the city is awesome as it is within walking distance to all the major sites of interest and is a very nice part of the city. I always felt safe and there were always friendly people around to help whenever we needed directions or advice.

The nearby Santiago Square has a nice market which is a great place to grab some delicious, cheap tacos, and there are often free events in the evenings such as music and dancing, and when nothing is going on at Santiago, it is easy to walk to the other plazas where one is bound to find traditional dancing or a night market or some other free event. Casa Violetta is also within a fairly easy walk or a quick taxi ride to the bus stations where you can catch buses taking you outside the city for day trips to locations of interest such as the beaches at Progresso, the flamingo tours at Celustun or the ruins at Uxmal.

Although it is in the heart of the city, the street is nice and clean and it is very quiet at night. I slept in the front room on the street side and was never bothered by the noise.

The house itself is incredibly charming, as an old colonial that has been restored and updated very tastefully: beautiful "rigas" or beams and a dramatic cast iron chandelier in the living room, lovely pasta tile floors, cute and clean little kitchen and lovely covered patio area for eating breakfast in the morning or enjoying margueritas in the evenings. There is also a dining room big enough to entertain a group of six easily. The back court yard is not large but there is plenty of room for lounging around the dipping pool. Jumping in the pool after a hot day touring the city is pure bliss!

The rooms at Casa Violetta are very clean and everything you need to make yourself comfortable is provided. The beds are large and comfortable, and the bathroom shower works very well for a Mexican house where water is supplied through gravity feed from a tank on the roof. The kitchen renovation has maintained the charm of the room, while providing modern appliances and everything you need to cook your own meals. The rooms are very cool even on the hottest days, owing to the lofty ceilings and tiled floors throughout, as well as the overhead fans.

All in all, Casa Violetta is reasonably priced and is better than staying at a hotel as it is private and feels more like you are at home. It's a great urban oasis!

I FELT LIKE A PRINCESS IN A FORTRESS!

  • 5 of 5
I recently got home from my most amazing vacation thus far. I travelled solo for my first week in Merida and was grateful to feel so comfortable, safe and secure during my stay at casa violeta.
Carole and the property management staff were amazing, had excellent communication, and made me feel welcome from the first moment Scott picked me up at the airport. The neighbourhood is probably the friendliest and safest neighbourhood with a policia at almost every corner! I definitely recommend experiencing casa violeta for yourself, the photos do not compare to the joy and peace felt within those walls. I've been home for three days and already beginning to plan my return to the fortress!

WE LOVED CASA VIOLETA

  • 5 of 5
Stayed for a couple of weeks. Arrived just before Christmas. The Casa is fantastic. Comfortable, great location, loved the pool. Enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. Loved the many doors and fans for cool cross breeze. A/C was great when temps soared above 30°. The pool cleaners and house cleaners were great. Many thanks to the manager as well.
All four of us really enjoyed our stay. The master bedroom suite was very comfortable.
Especially enjoyed the outdoor shower after cooling down in the pool.
