More details:

Explore Merida and the Yucatan from this sophisticated and contemporary environment - it is truly a luxury.

64 is your own private boutique space - and has been accessorized and furnished accordingly. There is a spectacular pool suite with a movable glass wall, as well as an exceptional master suite with 20 ft high beamed ceilings and reading loft, both with en-suite bathrooms.

This is a light-filled property in the day, and well thought out night-lighting makes for a dramatic evening environment. You can enjoy the sun pool-side, or on the large upper terrace, or enjoy the warmth in the shade in either of two covered terraces.

The well appointed, open-concept kitchen is set up for cooking and opens to the outdoor terrace for al fresco dining and lounging.

For your technology fix there's a flat screen TV and DVD player in the upstairs master (including cable and NETFLIX), wifi internet throughout the house, stereo receiver and cd player in the kitchen with BOSE speakers in the dining room and on the covered patio. The downstairs master has a compact cd player.

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 Merida

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.

We bought the house in early 2012. The former owners had fantastic taste and we were lucky to keep the best of their furniture. We've updated the living room with new furniture and with a personal love of cooking, fitted out the kitchen fit for a chef.

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...).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed staying there. We weren't sure we were going to like it after staying in a renovated colonial, but we really did. The design is stunning, and we particularly liked the furniture, which was much more comfortable than what we had in the other house, particularly the beds and pillows. The towels were great too. The fact that there were several outdoor spaces where one could go and read was nice for a group -- we each had our own private space. The outdoor furniture was high quality and there was a lot of it, so we could each have a lounge, couch or chair, which wasn't true in many of the homes we looked at.

Isabel met us and showed us around the house, and we thought she was terrific -- very thorough and action-oriented. Based on our experience at the other property, your property managers were much better.

We visited Chichen Itza very early one morning before the crowds arrived and the kids were lamenting the fact that they couldn't climb the pyramids which we had done many years earlier. We went to Ek Balam which is another group of ruins where you can still climb, and they really enjoyed it. We also went to the cenote that they have on site, which was much more adventuresome than others we've visited in the past. We didn't pay the extra fees, but when we arrived at the cenote itself, the guides allowed everyone to do the Tarzan swing which was a bit of a thrill for we old people

Absolutely gorgeous modern home in the heart of the centro

  • 5 of 5

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!

Our Dream Stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great House, Great Location, Great Landlord

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa 64 over the Christmas and New Year holiday. This was our second visit to Merida. It is a superb location in the middle of all the action and close to Park Santa Lucia. The house is very comfortable and well divided with 2 private fully equipped bedroom (we were 3). However, what was even more impressive to us was how incredibly fast and efficient the owner dealt with small issues we had on arrival. And the owner was so welcoming (fresh roses on arrival). We are very likely to stay there again and we highly recommend it.

An oasis in the heart of Merida

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Merida, and the casa was most conveniently located for us, just a couple of blocks from both Santa Lucía and Plaza Grande. Everything in the casa was represented correctly in the listing, no surprises, and we loved having some elbow room (and private pool!) without the typical

confines of a hotel. Though we were only 2, I think 4 people could stay here quite comfortably. Communication with the owner and the rental agency was excellent, very responsive and no problems whatsoever. I would definitely consider renting this place again.

Great location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent 11 nights in this beautiful home. It had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the AC in the bedrooms worked great, even though it was very hot while we there. When we had a problem, Leonor attended to it right away. We were a 2 minute walk from beautiful Santa Lucia park and 5 minutes from the main square. Highly recommended!

Second stay even better!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Casa 64, and it was even better than the first! We booked a last-minute stay with Peter, and as others have stated, he was prompt, fair and extremely helpful. His property manager met us as arranged, and when we entered the house, we immediately noticed some upgrades. It is so nice to see someone improving their already lovely home! Casa 64 is an award-winning design, and living there, you are able to appreciate the fine details. It is an intoxicating mix of old and new, with some colonial details and modern flair. This place can easily accommodate four guests, but for a couple, it is outrageously luxurious! There are so many places to relax, on the sun deck lounge chairs, in the front room with it's high ceiling and chandelier, or by the refreshing pool. The two bedrooms are both amazing and completely different. When it got too hot to enjoy those areas, we would turn on the a/c upstairs in the master suite and watch netflix, wait until nightfall, and then stroll around the amazing city of Merida. The location is perfect! We walked to excellent restaurants every night, and there is a delicious gelato shop on the way home. The city itself has free cultural events every night, and is a starting point for exploring the archaeological ruins of the Maya. Casa 64 is truly a gem. It was so nice to return to a place and like it even better the second time around. Thank you for sharing your amazing home, Peter!

Owner's Response: KM - it was fantastic to have both of you back for your holiday in Merida. I'm glad to hear you found some of the great places to eat in the area around the house... yes, the Gelato is a nice treat to have so close.
