Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Eight of us ranging in age between 12 and 80 stayed at this house for a week and we loved the experience! Yucatán is amazing and the house was just what we needed. It is lovely, spacious, quiet, close enough to everything (we did move around by car). Every bedroom has a bathroom and there is an additional toilet in the common area, so even with several teenagers in the family there were no arguments over who gets to use the bathroom first :) The fountain and plants in the middle of the house are beautiful and we all loved to relax (and sleep) in the hammocks nearby. Alex (Bertrand‘s brother-in-law) is super nice and was always very quick in answering any questions we had or if something needed to be fixed.
Space in Itzimna
We stayed at this residence in late March of 2019. It is spacious and very comfortable for large groups. This older home is beautiful inside and nicely set back from the street. It has a comfortable pool and numerous sitting areas. Wish we had more time to appreciate the neighborhood as we met a number of Mexican/Americans who were very friendly and helpful. Special house in a special city. Highly recommend. Alex the Host was also friendly and accommodating.
Thank you so much Calvin. It will be a pleasure to welcome you again. Best regards Alex and Bertrand
A Beautiful, Comfortable Home Base in the Yucatan: Temporary Paradise
We wanted a home in Merida for four weeks, where we hoped some of our adult children could join us for as long as they could stay. All did come at different, overlapping times, with spouses and bringing a couple of grandchildren, too. The Casa Hacienda is ideal for such family visits and also would work well for a pair of small families. Having five bedrooms on the property, each with a tiled shower/sink/toilet room adjacent makes it easy to accommodate up to a dozen people. We had seven for a few days.
As others have said, the house is larger than the photos show. Besides the five bedrooms and their en suite bathrooms, there are two walk-in closets, a walk-in pantry, a kitchen, a small toilet, a dining room, two large living rooms next to each other but on different levels, a large office with desk and land-line phone for tenants' use, a large central atrium ( with plants to be watered by tenants weekly), a large screened eating porch adjacent to the kitchen overlooking the back yard and pool, and a large laundry room with good washer and dryer. It is a great place for kids to play hide and seek.The automated gate fosters a sense of security, as do the tall walls on the edge of the property. (Iguanas sun themselves on top of one wall each morning). You get used to handling keys for the doors you care to lock. There are about 50 light switches for indoor and outdoor lights and ceiling fans: most are clearly marked.
A block or so from Parque Itzimná, the house is well situated for easy access to the Centro by bus (stops at the corner), rental car, Uber and taxi. At the park square is a morning fruit-and-vegetable cart with freshly squeezed juices by the liter for less than a dollar - orange, grapefruit, tangerine, chaya, etc. There is also a French(!) bakery just opposite the fruit stand, fresh croissants and baguettes each morning. And a Chinese take-out shop. For coffee addicts, there is a specialty coffee cafe just off the square. Within easy walking distance west of the square is Luigi's, with an Italian touch to its menu. We also recommend nearby Chowak Xikin for tasty food in a quiet garden setting. We saw only locals there, but all arrived by car - a sign of its drawing power.
Tenants at the Casa Hacienda will discover their own favorite places and things to do, but we all enjoyed the tree-shaded back yard and the pool as the best place to sit back and relax in all of Merida, our private paradise.
Alex is a joy to work with.
Dear Doug and family, it was a huge pleasure to welcome you and we are very happy that you had a pleasant stay and enjoyed the Casa Hacienda Itzimna ... You will always be welcome. Alex, Cris and Bertrand
Beautiful property, easy to work with Bertrand, wonderful location for exploring Merida
We had a great visit to Merida and Bertrand's property was a highlight. It was easy to get around the city from Itzimna. The facilities for cooking and relaxing after long days exploring in and around Merida made for a welcome respite and lots of fun!
An enchanting stay at Casa Hacienda Itzimna
I recently returned from a truly enjoyable stay at Casa Hacienda Itzimna. I was in Merida with a small production company working on an important project for us. We based ourselves in Merida to have convenient access to nearby cenotes and Mayan ruins. We needed a property that could comfortably accommodate 7-8 people and also have room for us to work (an office space, good wifi) as well as a welcoming space to relax when not working, and Hacienda Itzimna gave us all of that and more.
The house is lovely - a classic Mexican hacienda complete with indoor garden and many authentic furniture touches. There was more than ample space for us all and with two casitas in the back, everyone had both the privacy they needed with the convenience of being near each other. We enjoyed making use of the new grill and between both the formal dining room and the large enclosed patio table - our group had many lively meals in colorful surroundings. The most fun however was meeting to relax in the beautiful pool after a long day of work. The back yard and pool area quickly became our favorite place to be. We also enjoyed trying out the hammocks that are located throughout the property and some of us were even moved to buy some to bring home.
This review would not be complete without a big thank you to Alex, our caretaker who was super responsive when we had a question, needed a recommendation or if anything went wrong. There was an issue with our hot water heater when we first arrived (it worked but had to be lit) and within a day Alex saw to its replacement. He also helped us out by greeting a member of our team arriving when we weren't at the property and even gave him a walking tour of the neighborhood. Alex truly went above and beyond for us and we are very grateful. Thank you Alex!
For those of you that feel strongly about air conditioning, take note that the common areas have fans only but we found that was all we needed and all of the bedrooms have AC.
I highly recommend this property and would return again. Thank you Bertrand and Alex.
Thank you so much Julia.
It will be a pleasure to welcome you again.

Beautiful property, unbelievable service !
This beautiful property has big rooms, plenty of bathrooms and a large equipped kitchen. The exquisite arquitecture, the patio, and every single detail will transport you to another time in history in this” ciudad blanca” as Merida is called.
The hacienda is located downtown, what it make it very convenient, everything that you need is walking distance in a safe neighborhood.
Alejandro ( the house manager and brother in law), will make you feel at home right away. Bertrand is an amazing owner who will make the stay stress free as he is extremely flexible in every way possible.
I love the property and how they make my vacations amazing!
Thank so much Estela !
It was a pleasure to receive you in Casa Hacienda Itzimná.
Vous serez toujours les bienvenus.
When we talk of exploring Yucatan, Merida is the starting point to get to know all the routes of the Mayan world. For 500 years Merida forged its vocation of great metropolis and departure point for the exploration of Yucatan. Founded on the Mayan city of Tho, after being colonized during the conquest it became the city of the Spanish government.
Currently, with its museums, parks, markets and outdoors cafés, Merida is a fascinating and cosmopolitan place, with its more than 900.000 inhabitants, mostly descendants of the Spanish and the Mayas.
Merida lives a great cultural celebration every day of the year. The thousands of visitors from all over the world become spectators of its intense daily reality. Thus, any day you visit the city, a show will be waiting for you in the Historic City Center.
Throughout Paseo and Prolongación Montejo one can find restaurants, hotels, bars, cafés, banks and businesses, with all the services to give the visitor a pleasant stay.
