About Barb Hilborn

We are a retired couple from Canada who have spent the past several winters in Mexico looking for the perfect place to call our own.

Barb Hilborn purchased this house in 2014

Why Barb Hilborn chose Merida

When we came to Merida, we fell in love. The city is vibrant, full of culture and warm, friendly people. It is one of the safest places in Mexico and proud of it.

What makes this house unique

After looking at several homes, we knew this was the one as soon as we walked in. The large rooms with arched windows allow air flow yet there are a/c units if it becomes uncomfortably warm. We were charmed by the unique pasta tile floors and the great pool/garden area. We are conveniently close to centro yet far enough away to have a feeling of neighbourhood. You will find the people of Merida to be among the most friendly people anywhere.

We were treated wonderfully by the owners and especially the property manager Carlos.

Our stay was at the last minute, they were very sympathetic to our needs and went far

beyond our expectations. Carlos is very professional and caring, giving us plenty of his time and attention. Though we were in Merida for medical and dental needs we really felt quite at home. Thanks again and we will be back.

home and very comfortable

Excellent rental in Santiago area

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental in the quiet Santiago neighborhood of Merida. The house had everything we needed - great kitchen space and appliances, washer/dryer, comfortable bed, BBQ, excellent air conditioning in every room, and super living room with TV. The house was spacious, and the pool was the perfect size. We walked to everything: grocery store, market, restaurants, parks, and the main bus station (for Sunday trip to the local ruins). The owner was extremely helpful, giving us a welcome booklet for the house and for Merida. The local property manager was great and was super responsive to our needs. Local bottled water service came by a couple of times a week; housekeeping and pool cleaners came by once a week. There was even a tortilla maker across the street that stopped by and sold us fresh tortillas. We wouldn't hesitate to stay at this property again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our casa. It sounds like you found your way around Merida (which is a very walkable city) and supported our neighboring restaurants and shops. We are so lucky to have our enthusiastic property manager Carlos (born in Merida) to look after our home and guests. He is a wealth of information regarding any questions or concerns. We would be happy to host you, your family or friends in the future. Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Outstanding rental casa in the center of Merida. On a bus route or can use inexpensive taxis to get around from this central location so no need to rent a car if you don't want to. Easy rental experience from contacting the owners, paying deposit to meeting the property manager late in the evening when we flew in. The home was equipped with everything that we needed and then some extras that you don't normally expect to find in short term rentals. The house is beautifully restored, spacious and our children (9&10) felt comfortable in the house and enjoyed the play pool. We appreciated that the house was decorated in a family friendly manner so that our children could play in the house and outside. The master bedroom and den (sleep sofa) are in the main part of the house and the 2nd bedroom is accessed from the courtyard. The property manager, a native of Merida, is very easy to get in touch with and is happy to offer suggestions on where to dine, transportation or anything else that you may need. Housekeeper comes in once a week to clean floors, bathrooms, etc. Our family would be delighted to stay here again.

We would highly recommend this casa to anyone looking to stay in Centro.
