Our local english/spanish speaking property manager will be happy to assist renters with arrangements (cars, tours, chef, extra cleaning, airport transfers) and can also arrange to have groceries waiting on your arrival.
64 is a unique balance of colonial and modern architecture located in the UNESCO-protected historic centre (Centro Historico) of Merida, and is ideally situated just four blocks from Parque Santa Lucia and from the main square.
The architect has retained the Colonial facade, and created a modern and contemporary interior. The tilework is an example of how the architect has created a modern property which still references its historical and contextual background - the tilework on the living room and master suite floors, and the kitchen backsplash is a traditional Yucatecan design which has been modified and updated so that it is a simpler two-tone design.
Henry Ponce won the Architectural Digest Award for 'Icons of Design' for Casa 64. Henry is well-known for his ability in blending colonial and contemporary styles. The video attached to this listing shows the flow of the house (note the furniture has changed since this video was shot).

About Peter Curry
As a couple of Canadians edging toward the dream of retirement, we're always looking for a great warm place in the winter to get away from our busy lives. We love great architecture, design, art and comfortable spaces where we can relax and entertain friends/family.
Peter Curry purchased this House in 2012
Why Peter Curry chose Centro
Merida is authentic Mexico - and this house is at the center of it all. We get to Merida as often as we can and wanted an easy, spectacular rental property we could call our own. This house certainly fits the bill. Henry Ponce designed this house for himself, not for a client, and won awards for his innovation and execution. Just as we were when we first walked in, guests are equally impressed by his thoughtful design touches and the way the house is furnished and outfitted.
What makes this House unique
The architect, Henry Ponce delivers on the design details. A perfect balance of old colonial and contemporary features blends to an open, airy concept that works! Many houses of Merida are dark but Casa 64 offers open spaces with wide open doors (spare bedroom with a glass wall that completely opens beside the pool!) and multiple covered and uncovered patios. The two king beds are the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in (I travel a ton and know good/bad beds), the bedrooms are spacious and ensuite are beautifully appointed. The house is only four blocks from Plaza Grande, Merida's central and largest square. The same distance from Parc Santa Lucia. A couple blocks further and you find yourself in the main market. Its central location means you absolutely don't need a car for your vacation....and yet there is parking right next door if you have a rental car arranged to see the many sites in the surrounding area (cenotes, Mayan ruins, Tulum, Uxmal, Chelum, Progreso...).

Casa 64 exceeded our expectations. Peter, the owner, responded quickly to any questions we had, provided guidance as to activities, and was represented by a local agent who was always available and ready to help.
LL - We're really happy you enjoyed the house and your time in Merida. Thanks for taking time to post this review.
looks just like the photos
Overall, a good stay. The place looks just like the pictures--very spacious and comfortable, and very centrally located. The pool was especially welcome, as our days were very warm. Our only real problems were several nights of surging heavy-beat music until about 2:00 am and two power outages which meant no a/c or fans for one night. But things do happen--anywhere--and , again, the pool was there to cool us off.
All communications regarding this rental were prompt and accurate, and the local staff were pleasant and accomodating. Thanks for everything.
JD - Thanks for taking time to post this five star review. I'm glad you and your wife enjoyed your time in Merida. Our local staff enjoyed meeting you. I wish you had contacted us about the music. We have not experienced that ourselves or heard about it from other guests.
Amazing home in the center
We stayed here as a family of four and loved it. The pictures don't do the house justice - it's an amazing oasis right in the center of Merida (within 3 blocks of Santa Lucia and lots of restaurants). Great use of space, nice furnishings, perfect size pool, and very quite while being in the middle of everything. Additionally Peter, Leonor, and the rest of the folks who helped us were fantastic. Great experience all around
MS - Thanks for taking time to post a review. Thanks for choosing Casa 64. So glad you and your family enjoyed Merida for your vacation!
I took my mom for her birthday to Merida and stayed in this beautiful home. It is a great place to stay, central to everything. The pictures do not do it justice as it is soooo much better in person. It is a quiet oasis with top of the line amenities and extremely private. Peter and Leanor had flowers and fresh fruit waiting which was a super nice touch. I plan on making this an annual trip. Thanks for making this a great trip.
M - We're so glad you and your mother had a great time in Merida. We'll look forward to having you back on an future trip and thanks for staying with us at Casa 64.
Absolutely gorgeous modern home in the heart of the centro
We can't say enough good things about this wonderful home and the fantastic property manager Leonor. We wanted for absolutely nothing during our stay. The pristine condition that the home is kept in speaks volumes about the owners and the top knot management company. I have rented homes from several other companies in Merida prior to this trip but nothing held a candle to this trip. Most highly recommended!
TM - Thanks for choosing Casa 64 and taking time to post your thoughts here.
We're very glad you had a great time in Merida. Happy to know we may be neighbors sometime this year!
Our Dream Stay
We spent 3 glorious weeks in Merida at Casa 64. We fell in love with the city, and our home away from home. The house is superbly located being in the heart of everything. Beautifully decorated, it offered the best of indoor outdoor living. The kitchen was well equipped for anyone who loves to cook. Because of the unseasonally hot weather, the pool was the perfect place to be during the heat of the day. Our only problem with Casa 64 was that we had to leave! We look forward to returning.
R&S - Thanks for taking time to write the review. We're so happy you had a great time in Merida and that the house worked out for you!
