Overview

About the property

Elegant family-friendly getaway in urban Mérida.

This colonial-era, elegant escape is adorned in stunning, hand-crafted pasta tiles and architectural flourishes that nod to the Yucatan’s rich past. Modern amenities—like LCD TV, A/C., washer/dryer, and high-quality furnishings—make it the perfect indulgent space for relaxing after exploring Mayan ruins and the life-filled city squares of Mérida.

Large, open, and colorful living spaces turn this colonial-era city space into an elegant oasis for couples, friends, and families.

High-beamed ceilings, open spaces, and artful arch ways make this home easy for guests to escape and connect with friends and family, while secluded terraces on 3 levels and earth-toned art-filled walls provide this 2br 3 bath home with plenty of quiet, private spaces.

Enjoy an afternoon on the private pool terrace, adorned with tropical plants that have been carefully selected for their beauty.

Upstairs, the shaded, grand terrace is truly a magical place to enjoy morning coffee, afternoon drinks, or a locally made meal featuring the freshest foods from the nearby market. Want dinner delivered or made by a chef? Just ask!

Mérida’s convivial Santiago neighborhood is the center of expat life in the city, home to parks and markets, and just a short walk to busier areas with restaurants, historic cathedrals, grand plazas, art galleries, and museums.

Lovely colonial house in nice neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay but had a few bumps along the way. We arrived around 9:15 PM so instead of being met by a person there was a lock box. However, the front door had a little trick to open it and we could not get it open so we walked through town to find a hotel room for the first night. Irving, our concierge, met us the next morning and showed us how to open the door. We have used VRBO several times before but this was the first time we were not greeted by a person and I would not do it again. The house is large and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped but only had a bag of sugar and salt and no other condiments so we ended up only eating breakfast and snacks at the house. I loved opening the kitchen window to look out on to the street while washing dishes. The corkscrew did not work and it took them two days to get a new one. Although there was a washing machine, the clothes dryer to hang up wet clothes was broken and they never replaced it.

We slept upstairs and loved walking through the outdoor terrace to get to the bedroom which was spacious and very comfortable, Water pressure was poor upstairs and there was a regular machine noise that went on and off several times a night which they could not figure out.

The last two nights of our stay it rained really hard and both nights it rained into the living room. and on the stairway.

Overall we had a nice visit in Merida but for the price we paid for the house I would have expected things to be working better.

A magnificent Colonial house in Merdida!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with Casa Colibri! What can I say the house was a Colonial gem! Magnificent in every way and waking distance to the all the major sights in Centro Historico!The staff at Remixto are extremely professional (Jonathan and Irving)and attentive from the booking of the property, stocking the fridge, recommending restaurants, arranging for a massage (Adani was great) and the removal of palm fronds from the pool! A perfect stay! Gracias

Beautiful place but needs some TLC

  • 4 of 5

Casa Colibri is a beautiful home in the Santiago neighborhood of Merida. It is a good 15 minute walk to the entertainment district (Santa Lucia Square, 60th Street and the Paseo) The area is purely residential. There are no restaurants, bars or shops any closer so be prepared to walk. Still, the neighborhood is extremely safe and easy to walk.

Casa Colibri has so much potential. It is truly beautiful but the upholstery is dirty and makes you leary of sitting on the sofas and chairs. The air conditioner in the living room was not cooling and it made it very uncomfortable to spend any time there. They did not provide paper towels or dish towels for the kitchen. We had to go the store to buy some since we were there for 4 days.

Since it was just my husband and me, we spent most of our time at the pool and in the main bedroom upstairs. The pool area is lovely and we enjoyed cooling off there after coming in from hot afternoons and evenings in town.

The master bedroom is upstairs and is a bit tricky to get to. You have to climb up some narrow stairs, walk outside in the a terrace and then to the bedroom. The bedroom was perfectly comfortable (other than the dirty upholstered chairs) It was cool and roomy. We also spent a lot of time in the terrace outside the bedroom. It was perfect for cocktails in the late evening. We had an issue with cat droppings one day in the terrace. The next day we called the Remixto team and they promptly sent someone to clean it up. We were very happy.

There are 3 bathrooms which are ample and very clean. However, there are no towels or paper towels with which to dry your hands.

The Remixto team was there when we arrived and they were very prompt at the time of check out. We were really happy with their customer service.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay at Casa Colibri. I believe if they just clean the upholstery and fixed some of the dining room chairs and fixed things here and there it would be perfect. Next time we will use another Remixto property closer to the entertainment and shopping area.
