About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Just Off Paseo De Montejo

Newly remodeled and completely updated, yet retaining all the Colonial charm of high wood beamed ceilings and pasta tiled floors, Casa Aguacate is Merida's newest and best rental option.

When location is important (and when isn't location important?!) this is the perfect house for your Merida vacation or long term stay. Only steps from Parque Santa Ana and a block from the famous Paseo de Montejo, close to restaurants, galleries and all the culture of this great city. Rent by the night, by the week or by the month.

Perfect for one or two couples, as both bedrooms are masters, with wonderful light and roomy bathrooms, rent Casa Aguacate and enjoy your visit to our Colonial city from the comfort of this wonderful home.

For all you chefs, there is no finer home kitchen in Merida than this one. Double sink plus prep sink, extra large side-by-side refrigerator, granite counter tops, great stove and oven, lots of counter space, open to dining, living and outdoor areas.

You'll find the home is very roomy with a large entry hall, an open concept living and dining room area (fully air conditioned) and also a large studio with a sofa bed for extra guests. All the rooms have 25 foot ceilings with fans plus air conditioning.

The outdoor spaces are well designed to maximize their comfort and usefulness. Enjoy the view and breeze from under the covered terrace directly off the main living areas, lay back in a comfy hammock or try out the sparkling pool for a refreshing swim any time of day or night. The garden, terrace and pool areas are all perfectly private.

Casa Aguacate, a gem in Merida

  • 5 of 5

Casa Aguacate is truly a gem in the centre of the historic area of Merida. It is gorgeous and very spacious. The photos are lovely but they don't do it justice. It is airy, super clean, inviting and perfect for two couples as there are two master bedrooms and bathrooms. The exterior patio and pool area are warm, charming and a perfect place to relax after a day of travelling. It is a one minute walk to Plaza Santa Ana and a 5 minute walk to Plaza Santa Lucia and perhaps a 10 minutes from the Cathedral and the main core of the city with lots of shopping and dining opportunities. I cannot say enough about this home away from home.

Stunning property!

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely blown away by the beauty of this property. My husband and I were vacationing with another couple and this casa was the perfect fit for two couples. The decor was stunning and everything we needed was supplied. The area was perfect for walking to restaurants and sights. Convenient to many stores for supplies. Beautiful old church two houses away so it was wonderful to hear the church bells ringing daily. The pool was very inviting and beautiful. Privacy was great.

Our hosts Helene and Thomas were very enthusiastic about their home and had lots of info for us when we asked. Keep in touch with us when we requested anything. We really could not have asked for a more wonderful house to stay in or more accommodating hosts.

Beautiful Home for a Visit to Merida

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home located in the heart of Merida and so accessible to sights, restaurants and plazas. The restoration is exceptional with original "pasta" tile floors, two living areas and a chef kitchen. It is ideal for 2 couples with 2 master bedrooms both with doors onto the lovely, large patio and pool area. We loved the home and would love to go back. Our hosts provided personal attention, suggested sights and restaurants and made sure we had everything we needed for an exceptional stay. Highly recommend this house and the pictures on VRBO reflect the beauty and livability of the home very accurately.

A perfect retreat for two couples!

  • 4 of 5

This house is spectacular and the photos are accurate. Helene and Thomas were perfect hosts. The bedrooms are separate and very private. The pool and outside living area are perfect for relaxing and a cool retreat during the hot days. The air conditioning works great as do the ceiling fans which are located in every room and outdoors. There is a slight downside in that the house is on a busy street with buses but off-setting that is its proximity to Santa Ana with some of the best food vendors in the city, open all hours, early to late. Buses are also a great way to get around in Merida. We would gladly stay in this house again.

Beautiful Spanish Colonial House in the Quaint Santa Ana Area

  • 5 of 5

We could not recommend Casa Aguacate enough. This is a spacious, beautifully remodeled colonial house in one of the original founded neighborhoods in Merida. This gorgeous house is centrally located, close to downtown, to Paseo de Montejo, and next to the Santa Ana plaza and church.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at this house which had all the amenities we needed. The owners, Thomas and Helen, were very gracious and tended to our needs.

Thomas liked to water the plants and clean the courtyard and pool to ensure that we could fully enjoy being outdoors where we spent a lot of time. Oh... and the pool was simply divine particularly with the Merida heat which was in the 90's. It was great to be able to jump in the pool to cool off, anytime, and have complete privacy. There was also a hammock above the pool which was perfect to take a nap or while reading a book. It was very hard to leave Casa Aguacate and we look forward to returning.
