Overview

About the property

A sunny, spacious retreat perfect for exploring Mérida.

Open-air perks like a breezy rooftop terrace, tropical garden, patio lounge, and private swimming pool create spots to celebrate and relax in the Yucatan for up to 4 guests. This airy, light-filled, colonial-era home with well-equipped kitchen, WiFi, A/C, and 2 bedrooms with private en suite baths is the perfect base to explore Mérida.

Casa Musa blends colonial-era elements like traditional pasta tile and folk art with unique, eye-catching design touches of Louis XIV and Alhambra. Take a dip in the refreshing pool, grab lunch on the patio, and make your way up to the rooftop to toast the sunset and watch the lights of Mérida’s skyline appear.

Inside, recharge in comfort with soaring ceilings and modern furniture —why not turn on the flatscreen for some satellite TV? An open-plan kitchen area lets the cook stay connected to the fun. Expansive windows with sliding doors connect both the living room and master bedroom to the poolside patio area—slip out for a swim under the stars. Sink into a hotel-quality king mattress at the end of the day, and treat yourself to a private en suite bathroom stocked with luxury amenities.

The quiet neighborhood of Chen Bech is home to Casa Musa. You’ll be steps from the local food stands of the Chen Bech market, a short 15 min walk to the tranquil La Mejorada park and another 10 to the restaurants of Merida's main square, Plaza Grande.

Don't Run At The Pool

  • 4 of 5

We thought it was important to provide a review for Casa Musa in Merida, Mexico. We secured this casa from HomeAway and Remixto of Merida. I have to say that my booking experience with HomeAway was one of the worst customer service experiences that I've had in an awfully long time. That being said, thank heavens for the customer service people at Remixto. They were professional, spoke excellent English and helped alleviate all the concerns that I had dealing with HomeAway.

To start with Casa Musa is a very nice rental home, it's a renovated two-bedroom casa with pool and has been appointed throughout with everything that you need to enjoy your time in Merida. It just happens to be too far to walk anywhere. It's not in the greatest area, but we felt safe even when walking. The only saving point of the location of Casa Musa is the availability of UBER. Not once did we walk to the center, it was always UBER at an average cost of about $35P or under $2US. I have to say that these are way better than taxi's, plus the drivers are professional and generally the cars are new.

To deal with some of the positives from Casa Musa the towels, bedding and beds in the two bedroom are wonderful. They haven't skimped on quality here. Ever morning it was great to awake having had a great sleep in a comfortable king size bed. The only issue is the height of the beds, if you're short, find a little step stool, they're way higher than a normal bed. The kitchen has everything you need from small utensils, to top of the line appliances, again koodo's to either Remixto or the owners - you've done a great job here.

I'd like to deal with some of the negatives for US. The two main issues for us were the fact that we had to BAG our toilet paper for a month. Had I known this was the case, we NEVER would have stayed here - it's gross and disgusting. My other main beef, because I needed to stay in touch with our friends NOTB we could only get a Wi-Fi signal in the otherwise dark (No Windows) living room. It would have been nice to work on the patio by the pool, but there was no way that could happen.

My biggest concern was one of safety. They have the pool/patio area surrounded with teal ceramic tiles. On the second day of our stay at Casa Musa, our friend who was staying with us, came out of the pool (it has no steps or railings) at the "ledge" and proceeded to step down from the pool edge onto these tiles, slipped and came down hard.

Beauty and tranquility.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Musa is as good, even better than the pictures. We stayed for 8 nights. Not only is it beautiful, the furniture, appliances, and linens are all top quality. We are 10 year veterans of VRBO. This property is the best. One thing that we had never experienced before was having a property management / concierge service. Jonathan from Remixto was incredibility responsive to any question and helpful. Before our visit, we needed ADO bus tickets from and to Cancun. We could not buy them online from the US. Remixto purchased our tickets for us and saved us a lot of trouble trying to purchase them during our short visit in Cancun. Remixto spoiled us for other future VRBO rentals.

Generally, we found Merida and the Casa Musa location very safe. We would have no qualms having our teenage daughter walk the historic center or area around the apartment. The people of Merida are incredibly nice. The apartment is quiet, especially the bedrooms. The air conditioners in the various rooms worked well. Such an oasis coming in from the heat and humidity!

To the owners of Casa Musa: Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous property and art. It was like staying in a high end art gallery which is nirvana for me being an art major. Casa Musa inspired us to buy a painting in Merida, which, thankfully arrived home safely. We love it and it will always remind us of our stay in Casa Musa.

What a great place to stay- a beautiful, tastefully decorated home away from home, Musa was a real delight from the start. It had all the amenities one could imagine and off street secure parking was also helpful for my rental car. The service was equally noteworthy with Irving the concierge being there ready to help with anything. I don't think I have ever come across such a responsive service ; impressive! My only complaint was not being able to stay longer! I will certainly try to visit again but this time for a longer period. Thanks to the owners too, who were so helpful and informative from the start. Do yourselves a favour and seriously look at staying here!

Beautiful home not so great location

  • 3 of 5

Fist Merida ia such a beautiful city. The people arent as friendly as in Playa but nice enough. The home was absolutely beautiful. Clean comfortable. Art in this home spectacular. Beds are amazing, beautiful, clean and comfortable. Pictures are accurate. The home is very big. There was just 2 of us but this home would do well with 4 or 6 staying there. Pool is great. Tv also great. Negatives, the neighborhood wasnt so pretty. This home stuck out. Neighbors were great though. We had to pay energy bill which I knew before getting there but kind of annoying. I wish the owner would just work it into the nightly rate cause it is kind of a pain in the butt. We paid with our pesos. Which we were already running low on and not alot of cambios around. The small solar room between the bedrooms was a bit weird, it was filled with sculptures. I wish they would have turned it into a greenhouse with natural flowers and plants. Nightlife not so good in Merida. If you want to relax with peace, quiet and beauty this home is the place for you.

Wonderful stay, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Had the privilege of staying in this tastefully decorated, beautiful home. Perfect for 2 couples with lots of space indoors and outside....poolside or rooftop terrace. The pool is a great size with views to the pool from the kitchen area and access from the master bedroom. All the kitchen supplies one would need to enjoy meals at home, great island for being part of the conversation and preparation. Would definitely return to this home and highly recommend for those who want to be close to centro, but not right in centro.

The property manager in charge provided all the details required to gain access to the home, and was there consistently throughout the process on email. Very well managed.
