Genuine Merida

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (three small kids) spent a week here during the hot Merida summer. The hosts are a friendly local family who were very responsive and pleasant to work with. Home has two air conditioned bedrooms, a well appointed kitchen, dining room for 6, living room, and entry. A highlight for our kids is the pool in back; we used it each day after our adventures to cool off.

The neighborhood is quiet and just off the pleasant Paseo Montejo (good for evening strolls); this neighborhood is north of the bustling tourist center, but still has many of the best restaurants in walking distance.

The home has an authentic Merida vibe; it feels like a home, not a hotel.

Awesome house in an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mango is about 10 minutes by walk to downtown Merida. It's pretty spacious and well furnished. The garden and the private swimming pool are bonuses. To top it all, the hosts were awesome!

Wonderful place to stay in Merida

  • 5 of 5

In February of 2016 my husband and I spent 10 days in Merida and stayed at Casa Mango. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location or more helpful and accommodating people to rent a vacation home from. The house was clean, cheerful and comfortable and the street, though central to everything we enjoy in busy Merida, was very quiet. We enjoy art galleries, performances, restaurants and markets and all were within walking distance. We had really wanted to stay there again this winter, the date above would have been our arrival date, but illness suddenly delayed our travel. As soon as we can we are going to get ourselves back to this wonderful city and only hope that Casa Mango is available when we do!!

Great for those who love to walk !!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful holiday in Merida. We stayed at Casa Mango for 3 weeks

and found it was the perfect location to walk everywhere. Located a block from the Paseo Montejo where museums, eclectic stores and resturants are located. Centro where the main plaza is located takes

approximate 15 min to walk. Buses are running all the time for a mere 7 paso. There are also other plazas within walking distance Santa Ana & Santa Lucia. 20 min drive from the airport. The home itself is very comfortable and stays cool during the heat of the day. Large shower area & nice size bathroom. Spacious for family with a lovely pool in the back. There is also a bistro patio table and chairs outside as well. I would highly recommend this home to those would love the experience of a Mexican home with the tiled floors and colourful walls!!!

Perfect for our family

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. We are a married couple with two children (ages 6 and 3) and my mom traveled with us. The pool was just big enough for playing in with the kids especially after a day out and about. It was in a great location. We walked to the market for fresh fruits, veggies, tortillas, eggs, etc. We could also walk to the downtown area (although that was a little farther, but we like to walk) and went almost every night to the Sorbete restaurant on Paseo Montejo (only a two block walk). It was on a quiet street and we never had to turn on the air con, the ceiling fans were enough. Ignacio was waiting for us when we arrived to let us into the house and when we left he was there to return our deposit. The description says that the second bedroom has two single beds, but it's actually one double and one single, perfect for Grandma and the kids. Plenty of dishes, pans, etc. We ate every breakfast at the house. Comfortable beds and nicely decorated. We would stay there again.

A place with a soul

  • 4 of 5

We’ve been in Casa Mango a few days in the beginning of January 2013 with our 3 kids (1, 6 and 8 years old). The spot is ideal for tourists : 2 minutes of walk from the Paseo Montejo, about the same from the Parque de Santa Ana and its market where you can get a typical meal during the day or fresh vegetables and meat. Nearby, you can also get fresh ground coffee and bread (typically covered with sugar) from a local panaderia. Casa Mango is a good place to start a visit of Merida and its old center.

The house definitely have a personality as it is almost a century old and you can feel it is part of Merida’s history. If you are looking for a totally quiet or extremely modern place, you should look for something else. You will find under this roof, all you need for a great stay and to cook. It is charming and colorful.

The owners, Ignacio and Mina, are very kind and really open minded persons. Both beeing artist, many of the pictures on the walls are their creations.

Casa Mango sleeps easily 4 persons or more if you use hamacs that are available.

The pool is small but deep enough to make everybody happy, especially the kids.
