traveler reviews for this merida house rental

Great cas and excellent location

Review submitted: March 15, 2014   Date of arrival: January 31, 2014

We stayed at La Joya for the month of February. We loved the house and the mix of modern and colonial designs. Much thought was put into the property. The kitchen was well appointed with all that we needed. Especially liked the stove top and the cast iron 'plate' used to heat tortillas.

The casa's location is perfect for exploring the historical centro of Merida. Just a short walk to the main plaza, Santiago and Santa Ana markets, museums and restaurants. A car is not needed. The home comes as advertised. Availability of hot water and water pressure were excellent.

The home is very clean and included weekly visits from a housekeeper, pool cleaners and gardener.

The pool and outdoor areas are magnificent. a great variety of fruit trees, bougainvillea and hibiscus. We especially enjoyed the different birds that would come to visit each day including parrots.

We found the property manager very easy to communicate with and when necessary any minor issues we encountered were dealt with in a timely fashion and to our satisfaction. We highly recommend this property.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Sanctuary in Merida

Review submitted: March 16, 2013   Date of arrival: December 22, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house was excellent - lovely, clean, spacious, good location.

Two courtyards with large screened windows/doors allowed a nice breeze. The house felt very spacious and comfortable for our group of 8. The pool was great for a refreshing dip after walking around town.

Location is just blocks from several plazas, avenues with historical points and restaurants, etc.

The refrigerator had some problems and the owner replaced it with a brand new one within a day. Very responsive.

Highly recommended. Next time we are in Merida, this will be our first choice.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly, sight seeing

Hidden Paradise

Review submitted: August 15, 2012   Date of arrival: January 7, 2012

La Joya is truly a hidden gem, from the outside it looked plain, but when I opened the door it was paradise. I loved this home and have inquired a few more times since my visit, but it was unavailable at those times - understandably, it is precious. I was greeted by Omar upon arrival with a walk through of the house and he explained the appliances, air conditioning, wireless internet, pool and everything else. He gave me his personal phone number and showed me how to use the phone to make local calls - which was great. The house is HUGE, it must be 5,000 square feet. The first room near the street has a queen bed(usually loud in other colonial homes in Merida)but was quiet because Calle 66 is not a very busy street. The Merida English Library is right around the corner, centro a few blocks. Two bedrooms are Huge with gorgeous minimalist-designed private bathrooms and queen sized beds. Yet another bedroom is smaller with a bathroom right outside it's door - queen or double bed, can't remember. The living room is a delight and the entire home is a thoughtful combination of minimalist chic and refurbished colonial architecture (ie flat screen tv, grey plush sofa, fine wooden dining furniture, stainless nice, the living area gives a "loft-like" feeling, w/an open layout which includes the living room, dining and kitchen. The bathroom in the 3rd huge bedroom at the rear of the house has a door that opens to the patio/pool. Outside of the kitchen is a comfortable seating area with chair with comfy cushions. The pool was delightful. In January, it was not that hot, but a couple of days were hot enough to welcome the pool, which was not heated and did not need to be heated. Another wonderful aspect of this home is the palapa roofed area next to the pool, with hammocks and seating area, dining table...My group consisted of myself and 3 others, including creative writing professors I had invited to Merida for an event. EVERYONE loved this house and there was more than ample room for a lot of privacy. All in all, my experience was wonderful and I look forward to coming back again to casa La Joya. We never had a problem in 10 days. The washing machine is up a flight of stairs outside the backdoor and that made life easier as well. The home owners have a modest artistic flair that at once functional, beautiful and warm. Thanks so much, Omar, sorry I didn't write my review sooner and sorry La Joya won't be available next January when I am in Merida!
