Centro Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Comfortable Remodeled Townhouse With 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms (Sleeps 5)

Enjoy Casa Rosita, a contemporary two-bedroom two-bathroom townhouse situated in the heart of downtown Merida. From the street, step into the beamed high-ceilinged living room where you can settle back on the comfortable sofa in front of the wall-mounted flat TV. From the living room walk out on to a sunny, open air patio leading to the downstairs bedroom and kitchen.

In the bedroom, relax on the comfy queen size bed or open your laptop at the small desk to check the internet. No need to live out of a suitcase while you can spread your things out in the wall to wall solid wood closet and on the granite countertop and in solid wood drawers in the en suite bathroom.

Try a new Yucatecan recipe in the totally equipped kitchen, complete with granite countertops and bar with built in stovetop and oven. Don´t bother lugging home those heavy bottles of purified water as the kitchen is also equipped with a reverse osmosis ultraviolet light water purification system.

Take a dip in the cool, filtered plunge pool or just sit out on the covered terrace and listen to the birds sing while you enjoy the small colorful garden and shady sour-orange tree.

Upstairs, admire the evening stars on the open air terrace outside of the master bedroom while you relax on a comfortable patio chair. After a luxurious shower surrounded by plants in the en suite bathroom, stretch out in the master bedroom on the pleasant king size bed and catch a movie on the flat screen TV.

This house caught our eye because of its great downtown location.

What makes this townhome unique

Casa Rosita was such an ugly duckling when we found it but the young architects at Attiko transformed it into a modern, comfortable and beautiful little house

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a month at Casa Rosita. So as not to be rewrite everything that has previously been written, I will say that every good thing that has been written about Casa Rosita and Jo, the owner/manager we found to be true in every way. We would highly recommend it and would stay again on another trip to Merida.

Lovely city oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a stay at Casa Rosita and are already missing it. It's a lovely place with every amenity you could wish for. The indoor spaces were comfy and cool (or open and breezy with optional sliding screens), while the landscaped outdoor spaces and seating areas often had us staying home and relaxing rather than braving the heat in the streets. The pool was sublime! And as if the luxury of the place wasn't enough, our hostess, Jo, worked hard to accommodate any needs--even coming early in the morning to let us in when our overnight bus arrived before dawn. We can't wait to return and happily recommend Casa Rosita to all.

Beyond Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot begin to report how wonderful our stay @ Casa Rosita was. The home is an architecturally stunning example of indoor/outdoor living. The photos on the website (although awesome) do not do justice to this magnificently appointed home. The owner, Debbie Jo, could not have been more accommodating. Everything we need was provided. What a joy after our long flight to find cold drinks and snacks waiting for us in the refrigerator and a fully stocked pantry. The kitchen is state of the art—so if you prepare meals while on vacation like we do this is the place to stay. The home is within walking distance to everything. We have not stopped singing Casa Rosita praises and would return to this beautiful rental as well as recommend it to our family & friends

Fantastic Home in Beautiful Merida

  • 5 of 5

We (a couple in our early seventies) were constantly surprised and delighted by the features of Casa Rosita. It would function very well for a party or two couples or a family of four. The overall design and execution of that design is superb. This is not necessarily a place for someone who wants a strictly traditional Mexican feel, but it is a place that has top quality materials typical of Mexico assembled in a way that should please anyone who likes modern design and traditional materials. Even the accessories, which are plentiful, are of high quality, which is not always typical in a rental unit.

Of course, as mentioned in most other reviews, the location of the house is convenient to walk to the historic center of Merida and to many of the the most desirable restaurants and markets. And the owner, Jo, was right there upon our arrival to provide a tour of the house and advice for our stay. She was also very accessible via a provided mobile phone to answer any queries we had.

We've spent a lot of time in western and central Mexico, but this was our first visit to the Yucatan and Merida. We love Merida and it was fairly hot and humid during our stay. The plunge pool was very refreshing after a day visiting Chichen Itza or various sites in and near Merida.

I want to point out several features that are rare for ay rental places. One is that the beds are of very high quality with a soft top layer, unlike almost all very firm mattresses found in hotels and other rental housing in Mexico. Two is that the refrigerator has the freezer at the bottom, which we've learned is more energy efficient and logical that a typical top freezer refrigerator. Three is that the tap water is safe to drink, tastes good, and is soft due to the reverse osmosis water treatment system, which is an expensive feature. Four is that the many sliding glass doors all work well and many slide totally out of the way into wall pockets. This feature is really nice when temperatures allow the rooms to be opened up and breezes to flow. Oh, and a feature that's not necessarily a benefit, but is terrific anyway: the solar hot water system. There is a back up gas (or electric) water heater for times when the solar system is unable to provide all that is needed, but we never found it necessary.

We plan to revisit Merida in the future and hope that Casa Rosita will be available for us to rent.

My son and I vacationed for a week in Merida and stayed at Casa Rosita. Staying at Casa Rosita instead of a hotel was the best decision I could have made. The place is just as you see it in the photos and even better. My decision to rent the place was last minute and Jo the owner could not have been more helpful. During our stay the tv in the living room malfunctioned and I let Jo know of this and well in less than 24 hrs she had the tv replaced. Wow! Besides the place being awesome the service is superb. Merida is wonderful and we enjoyed every minute. The people of Merida are very friendly and we felt safe. We hope to return to Merida and Casa Rosita someday, probably at a different time of the year. I must mention the location of Casa Rosita is ideal if you want to be near the historic center and also anything you night need is within walking distance. Lots of wonderful restaurants nearby. No car needed. Thank you Jo for everything!

Order an aromatic coffee while you sit in an outdoor café under an ancient arch or a flowering tree and people-watch. Stroll down quaint narrow streets in the morning and perceive the fragrance of chile habanero charring on a comal. Wander past a neighborhood tortillería and watch steaming hot tortillas fall off the creaky conveyer belt and into the attendant´s hands. She´ll expertly wrap up a quarter-kilo´s worth for you to fold around slices of the lusciously ripe avocado you found earlier in the local market.

Shop for vibrantly colored handcrafts, hide from the sun in a cool dark church, buy a delightfully soft cotton hammock and vow to continue this gentle life-style when you return home.

On the balmy evenings, revel in the traditional music and dance; dine al fresco at top-notch restaurants featuring Yucatecan or international cuisine. Stroll to the main plaza, hire a romantic trio and serenade your Significant Other. Unforgettable!
