traveler reviews for this merida house rental

Beautiful house - needs some comfort though

Review submitted: July 15, 2013   Date of arrival: July 6, 2013

Let me start by saying that all people involved in the rental of this property are responsive and eager to help. Mario has always responded to emails timely, Hannah has come same day to fix small issue and Anna would clean house for 4 hours to make it superb.
We have been here for 1 week (out of 5) so far and enjoy every minute of the stay.
The best place of the property is kitchen. Very well equipped, lit, and aired. Don't expect to see microwave or a toaster if you are used to them, learn how to "survive" without them. The lack of them was not a problem for us. Master bedroom have air conditioner in it that makes it comfortable to sleep at night.
Living room is spacious though in need of some new (updated) furniture. It has rattan sofas with pillows which are not comfortable to sit on for a prolong amount of time.
The bathroom is beautifully decorated but not practical to use. IT is the middle room and has 3 doors leading to it. The shower has no curtain or door so privacy is out of the question. Keep in mind who is in our party when you stay together.
Overall it is an OK house. For longer periods of time I would prefer more practical living and less antique furniture.

Thank you for your hospitality and allowing us to stay at this house.

Amazing casa bonita

Review submitted: May 9, 2013   Date of arrival: April 18, 2013

Let me first tell you how amazing
Casa Bonita is. The tile work, floors
paint choices & decor are both
beautiful and chic. I will tell you that
during my conversations with tourists
and expats, I always speak highly of
your property.
Lastly, I have to tell you that Hannah
was the perfect ambassador for you
and Casa Bonita. She was charming,
articulate and informative. Between
the home and Hannah, you certainly
know good taste.
Best Regards,

update on previous review

Review submitted: April 29, 2013   Date of arrival: March 7, 2013

As mentioned in the previous review, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Merida and in Casa Bonita. Hannah (the house manager) met us at the airport, even though it was quite late and explained everything to us. She was just an e-mail away whenever we needed help or had a question.
Ana (cleaning lady) and the "pool guys" came every week and kept everything beautiful. On our last day Ana even came over at 5:30am to make sure we caught the taxi to the airport alright. So sweet.
The house is as the pictures show. It is nicely appointed, and has a large, very well equipped, kitchen. The patio and courtyard areas are lovely and shaded. Landscaping is very nice.The pool was not however circulating. We were still able to use it, and it was very welcome, as we skimmed it twice a day, put in chlorine granuals every other day and as mentioned the "pool guys" did a complete cleaning every week.
For a long stay, more comfortable living room furniture would have been nice and four chairs outside rather than just 2. We concur with the previous reviewer that some loungers round the pool would also have enhanced the use of that part of the garden.
The house is about a 20min walk to San Diago square where there is a market, super market and butcher. Another 20 mins or so gets you downtown. The sooner you can gain confidence on the bus system the better as on a hot day, carrying groceries, that's a long walk back. Just get on the bus (6M$) and learn the route. The 49 Petronilia route (which goes past the door) will take you downtown to Centro and on the way back you get off at 49 and 76 and walk the block home. You can catch the same bus on 49 and take it out to the Walmart. They have an extensive bakery and fish department that the SuperAki at San Diago, doesn't have. They have a more extensive liquor selection but SuperAki is cheaper for the brands they stock.
The big museum Gran Museo de Mondo Maya is well worth going to (we used a taxi and it was only 40M$. Also the free city museum south of the main Plaza.
In a final note, we were not satisfied by Mario's response to our dispute re our security deposit. Make sure you get in an e-mail exactly what it will cost you to rent. He used our security deposit to charge us more for the house than we had originally agreed on. In his e-mails he obviously believed he was in the right to do so, but we disagreed. We have however ended our dispute, via paypal, with him.
We didn't use the air conditioning, the electricity US$20

Owners response: Carol, I am glad you enjoyed your stay in casa bonita.
I am sorry we do not agree over the deposit. Originally you rented casa bonita for 2 months. So I made you a better price for this long-time rental. Since you cancelled 1 month in advance, you pay the normal monthly rent.
Kind regards Mario
