Newly Renovated-Casa Esplendida, Across from the English Library 


Welcome to Casa Esplendida, nestled in the heart of Historic Centro, Merida.  Mayan Culture and Historical Architecture will amaze you!  Located across from the English Library, (the hub of information for any visitor) Casa Esplendida is undeniably the best location for all that Merida has to offer.  Museums, Art Galleries, Markets and Enchanting Parks with evening entertainment, as well as restaurants and shopping are all within a short walking distance.  Day trips and many excursions are available to Mayan Ruins, Haciendas, Cenotes (underground fresh water caves) or even the beach.


From the moment you enter the Iron Gate, you are embraced by the antique vase with nine foot floral design, silhouetted by massive arches and 18 foot colonial ceilings.  The foyer and living room speak of something rich and grand, yet soothing and comfortable.  The original tile floors, the craftsmanship of local artists, and the comfortable furnishings will immediately make you feel you're at home.


Just completed in the spring of 2009, this Colonial Historic home has had a makeover just for you.  Blended in accents of stone, hardwood and iron works by local craftsmen, Casa Esplendida is a tasteful melding of historic and modern, elegant and comfortable.  The blend of colors and textures will draw you in through the dinning room arches, past the large modern kitchen (with eat at bar) and through the iron gate to the open air terrace.  This area is large enough to entertain, yet cozy enough for two to relax in their own oasis retreat.  Enjoy the new pool encompassed by massive archways and pillars on one side and flanked by a life size fountain of natural stone.  The soft sounds of water gently cascading will melt your worries away.  Siesta on the patio or roof top terrace and refresh yourself under the outside stone shower. 


Everything has been completely redone: electrical, plumbing, air conditioning in both master suites and living room, ceiling fans and all new lighting.  The kitchen is new and modern.  Everything is there for you!  Bedrooms are adorned with antique wood and iron, and bamboo furnishings to set the mood.  You can enjoy dinning in the formal dinning room, which seats six, or outside on the patio.  If you choose, you can entertain and dine right at the kitchen bar which is dressed in natural Tikul stone.  The pool, patio, and kitchen are the heart of this home so you will never be more than a few steps away from your next cocktail or the volume on the radio.  The floor plan has been designed for the utmost comfort, convenience and privacy.  This home features wifi internet and a new television with cable.  If you don’t have your laptop, just walk across the street to the library for computer access with an English key board.  The Library can provide assistance, if needed.  Pick up something to read or find out happenings of the day or events through out the week.


Your home away from home has many conveniences.  Upon request, there can be maid service, cook, laundry, and gardener/pool service available.  A Local Property Manager will meet each guest upon arrival to the Merida airport, where transportation to Casa Esplendida will be arranged.  They can assist or give advice on transportation, tour information, restaurant recommendations, general information or emergencies. 


Your visit will be Unforgettable!  This property  will invoke envy among your friends and family when you share your photos and beautiful memories with them.  

Casa Esplendida – A Splendid House Indeed!!

activities and attractions in Merida Yucatan


Activities and Attractions in Merida Yucatan


Most of our favorite attractions are walking distance from Casa Esplendida, but check out www. yucatantoday. com for more ideas including day trips and tours with local maps.  Take advantage of the Open Markets and Street Festivals and enjoy the live music and entertainment at a different Park every evening.  Try Salsa dancing or enjoy fine dinning and music right on the streets of Merida, where every Saturday and Sunday the down town area is blocked off for fun night life.   Take a romantic horse and buggy ride down the beautiful and historic Paseo Montejo, or bicycle Paseo Montejo on Sundays and take in the Historic Architecture and side walk art displays.  Merida is gifted with an abundance of great Restaurants, Theaters, Museums, Art Galleries and Gift Shops.  Walk across the street to the English Library, where on Wednesdays they have a walking tour of several homes.  On Mondays take a free narrated tour of the Plaza Square and visit the oldest Cathedral on the American continent. 

Explore all that the Yucatan has to offer on a day trip.  One of our favorites is the tour to the Cuzama Cenotes.  About an hour drive from Merida you will arrive at Chundanan Hacienda where you will be pulled through the jungle on a platform cart, by horses on a rail system to 3 Cenotes.  Enjoy a refreshing afternoon swimming in these amazing underground fresh water pools.  Located on the calm beaches southwest of Merida in Celestun are the beautiful flamingo colonies.  About 30 minutes north of Merida you can enjoy a day at the beach and relax at a beach front restaurant with your favorite drink.  Mayan Ruins surround you in Merida.  One of the 7 Wonders of the World is Chichen Itza, just 1.5 hours from Merida.  These Mayan pyramids date back over 1550’s years ago.  Ruta Puuc and Uxmal are other favorite sites where you may want to spend the night to take in the evening Sight and Sound show!!


However, don’t forget to just sit and relax by the pool at Casa Esplendida, after all … you’re on Vacation!!!

You Know How to Treat Your Guests

Review submitted: September 4, 2012   Date of arrival: June 20, 2012

I hope you got my other message last night. We love your home, Javier and Merida! We have traveled everywhere in Yucatan and by far your place is the best. Will definitely give positive feedback. Thanks for a very beautiful and comfortable place to stay. We had everything we needed; plenty of towels soap lotion fresh water. You know how to treat your guests. Thanks so much. Pat

Expansive, gorgeous updated casa located within walking distance to just about everything the city has to offer. Restaurants, museums, tours, you name it, it can be accomplished steps away from the door. This four bedroom casa actually has four master suites, two in the main house and two in the casita. Perfect for privacy and/or just getting away for a while from your family/travel mates.

The plunge pool was the perfect size for cooling off throughout the day, and the depth was perfect for everyone (not too shallow/not too deep). Used the AC two nights out of seven, and only when there was no breeze. Perfectly equipped kitchen and plenty of linens and towels for everyone. The washer/dryer was a nice touch as well....

Do not count on GPS to get there initially, as the city has many similarly marked streets (we found 4 calle 66's!!) Get directions directly from the owners, and use them.....! Assertive driving is a must in this city, but once you get the hang of it, it is easy AND fun! The carriage rides are wonderful, but not every carriage driver treats his horse well. Find one who will introduce you to their horse, and bring a carrot for them too!!

A little Spanish goes a long way, but we found that waiters would bring us English menus without asking. Prices are VERY inexpensive in Merida, make sure to tip waiters, baggers, drivers, etc.

The owners and management were prompt with information and e-mails, and we lacked for nothing while we were there.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: Hey Guys, thanks so much for your kind words. We hope folks make memories to last a lifetime when staying at our home and it sounds like you may have done just that. You are so right...So Much to do, See, Taste, Experience, right out the front door, and a quick trip to the beach is a blast as well.
Thanks again for choosing Casa Esplendida. We look forward to seeing you again!

Wonderful Home

Review submitted: March 29, 2012   Date of arrival: March 13, 2012

Thank You to Dave & Shari for sharing this lovely property with us.
Enjoyed every minute of our time here. Beautiful home and a good location.
The pool was great, a fantastic treat at the end of the day! We loved the back yard and took naps in the hammocks. All the necessities and more. Microwave, gas stove, coffee maker, alarm clock, bottled water, ceiling fans and air conditioning, stereo and some CD’s. The “more” would be a TV, because who would watch TV when there is a pool! Easy walk to more activities then we were able to do, at the same time, a very quiet neighborhood where the home is located.

The home & outdoor area are very clean and well maintained. Saturday our towels and bedding were changed and washed. The people involved with this property were fantastic, from Dave & Shari, LeAnn (the property manager), Javier (transportation to/from airport, as well as a liquor store) and Maria. Also a huge thanks to LeAnn for setting up our Uxmal tour with Carlos, hands down the best tour guide we’ve ever had. They made our trip effortless.

Bug free. Sure there were a couple here and there while sitting by the pool at dusk, but no problems other then that. I mention it because of another review that said it was full of mosquitos. I slept in the rear of the main house, with all the windows open and the screens functioned fine.

We plan to visit Palenque in the future, and, after talking to Carlos, plan to base the trip from Merida. We’d rent Casa Esplendida again in a heart beat. Thanks Again!

Tips: Get a city map, maybe from a magazine or they may have one on a table in the entry. It is really easy getting around in Merida. All north/south Calles (streets) seem to be even numbered and the east/west are odd. We felt very safe at all times. Taking cabs are inexpensive and easy. A member of our party loved the walking tour of homer that left from the English Library, literally across the street. Obtain Pesos, you’ll need them. Not a lot of dollars get used here. Check out the local information in the home near the front door, brouchers and such. A little Spanish or a language guide goes a long ways, for example, all menus we encountered were only in Spanish.

Thanks for sharing your home,
Minneapolis, MN

Recommended for: age 55+, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Hola Greg.

Thanks so much for your kind words. Sorry about the TV, we do have a large flat screen which was unfortunately in for repairs....we do agree however, that very little time is ever spent in front of the tube. Although Javier did bring his personal TV to our home for a period of time, and we are so grateful for that, ours should be back soon.

We do feel we have a good team of folks working together that enable our clients to make the memories of a lifetime that they are looking for. Comfort, convince, peacefulness, is all attributed to Casa Esplendidas location, owners, and team. Thanks again for recognizing this and your kind words...they mean so much to us.

We hope your family and friends will be visiting again soon. Merida is an excellent hub to take in all the Yucatan has to offer.

Take care.
Dave & Shari
