Lovely Casa Laura

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Casa Laura for 4 days in December 2011, my husband 18month old son and my in-laws. This was our first time renting a house in Mexico, which with a baby seemed like a much better option than staying at a hotel-- and it WAS!

It was great working with Tamara, the property manager, she responded to many planning emails and was super quick to reply. It was easy to find and Tamara met us upon arrival as promised. She took the time to fully show us around, explain the workings of the many windows and doors. They are also available throughout your stay should you have any questions or problems and are very quick to respond by cell or email.

We had to request a late check out because our baby got sick and I really wanted to make sure he slept during the day since we also had a late flight out. Tamara was very kind to permit a late check out, which we sincerely appreciated.

The house was perfect for a wondering toddler, the little courtyard was a good place for him to run around, and the house was easy to "baby proof" just by moving some of the glass vases etc... to higher shelves. The house is on a LONG lot, and we stayed in the back room on the other side of the courtyard. We were able to put the baby down for a nap and he was far enough away that we didn't have to tiptoe around the house while he was sleeping which was nice.

The house comes completely furnished. It felt like a real home, (nothing like a hotel) with absolutely everything we needed. If you like to cook the kitchen was very well stocked with brand new (as in stickers still on them!) pans/knives etc... all great quality. Beds are huge and very comfortable. Sheets, pillows, towels etc were brand new when we were there. Bathroom is very clean, good water pressure. There's AC in a few of the rooms, but we never had to use it, just the fans once in a while. The house is very spacious and is perfect for a couple, a family or for two couples sharing.

The neighborhood is only a few walking minutes away from Plaza Santiago. The street is a little noisy with an amazing amount of bus traffic, but you don't notice it much once you are inside.

At the end of our stay we got our deposit back without a single hitch. The rental price was very affordable here and there were no hidden costs either. If you're looking to spend time in Merida at a really great and affordable place, you shouldn't have any doubts about Casa Laura!
