Merida House Rental Special

vacation rental description

Casa Caballito is a charming 200-year old Spanish Colonial home ideally suited to one or two couples seeking old world charm and modern comforts. We provide two free bikes with which to explore Merida.

Located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Centro Historico, Casa Caballito is positioned on a quiet non-bus street just three blocks north of Santiago Park.

The Merida English Language Library is little more than a block away and the festivities of the main square, Santa Ana’s arts district and Paseo Montejo’s twin mansions and sophisticated dining scene are all within an easy walk through the best part of town.

This architect-designed home is a stunning blend of Spanish Colonial charm and modern, open-plan comfort. The house features 18-foot wood beamed ceilings, original pasta floor tiles, a tranquil high-walled courtyard with limestone feature wall, and a fabulous, contemporary open-plan second-story living room and terrace that’s the perfect place to spend cocktail hour.

The ground floor king bedroom, off the courtyard, has an ensuite bathroom with barrel ceilings, high-pressure rain shower, and 3 foot-long soaking tub with louvered wooden door that can be opened to the courtyard.

The upstairs bedroom (also with king bed) features a beautiful porthole window with wooden detailing, ensuite bathroom with high-pressure rain shower, and a walk-in closet. The ingenious design means the house stays cool with little effort. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned and all rooms throughout the house have ceiling fans.

The lounge/living area upstairs features banquette-style built-in sofas that can seat between 6-8 people, with plenty of room to spread out for couples. A flat screen television with Cablemas TV (including a good selection of English language channels), DVD player, iPod dock and high-speed wireless internet are all included.

The brand new kitchen has a six-burner stove, full size fridge, microwave oven and dishwasher (a rarity for Merida) and comes fully equipped with an 8-person dinner setting, quality wine glasses, cookware, flatware, juice squeezer and French press coffee maker. The pantry is stocked with kitchen basics making shopping at Santiago markets and eating in a delight. In the dining room an extension table can accommodate six people with ease and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors give a year round alfresco feel.

Casa Caballito is the ideal Merida retreat for one or two couples, offering complete privacy, luxury and comfort along with all the classic historic charm in the perfect location.

activities and attractions in Merida Yucatan

Shop for the hottest chili peppers on the planet at Santiago market or, come evening, join the locals for some old-fashioned big band dancing in the square.

Stroll across to Paseo Montejo (Merida's answer to the Champs-Élysées) and marvel at the twin mansions built by jealous brothers.

Dine on sophisticated modern Yucatecan cuisine at boutique hotel Rosas y Xocolate then get rowdy in the new Irish Pub, Hennessy's.

Soak up the atmosphere of the nightly concerts in the main square.

Buy a piñata in the shape of your favorite superhero or a Mexican wrestling mask depicting your favorite alter ego.

Embark on a house and garden tour of other grand properties through the Merida English Language Library. Take a day trip to Chichen Itza, Ek' Balam or Uxmal to see the magnificent ruins of great cities built by the Mayan people.

Learn to cook local specialties at Los Dos cooking school, or visit the neighborhood markets and load up on fresh produce, local meats and hand-made tortillas to whip up a Mexican feast at home.

traveler reviews for this merida house rental

Good Location

Review submitted: January 9, 2014   Date of arrival: December 23, 2013

Our family of 4 stayed at Casa Caballito for 5 days in December 2013. It is centrally located and within walking distance to the supermarket, local plaza, centro, language school (CIS), and some great churches and plazas. The mosquitoes were voracious while we were there. Mosquito nets on the beds would have been a welcome addition. :)

The house itself is fun to look at with some great windows, doors and colors.

Unfortunately, the internet did not work the entire time we were there which made working while my family was sightseeing, virtually impossible.

Adam, the owner and Sylvia, the property manager, were both very easy to get ahold of both prior to our trip and during our time there.

Recommended for: romantic getaway

Owners response: The guests were neat and clean and tolerant of our problem with internet. Our house manager was in contact with Cablemas (the local cable provider) on a daily basis. On each occasion Cablemas promised to send a technician but never did. Unfortunately this meant that the guests were without service. In compensation the guests were not charged for electricity and not charged the minimum Christmas rate of $700 for a one week minimum (a discount of around 40 percent). The Cablemas problem has now been fixed.

Casa Caballito has very high walls which tends to eliminate the need for mosquito nets. This year was unusually wet and we have therefore decided to fumigate the house on a regular basis to prevent any further problems.
