Enchanting, Classic, yet Modernly Restored House in Merida Centro
This is a lovely, restored colonial house in the heart of the historic center in Merida, within a short walking distance to all the sights and restaurants. The owners have clearly painstakingly restored this house and included many contemporary features, as they describe in the listing. This is perfect for 2 couples or a small family. Discerning travelers wishing to live in relative comfort would be very happy in this property. Although Merida is full of nice restaurants, we found it great to cook and eat at home, which you cannot do in a comparably priced hotel. The addition of an oven or barbecue would have expanded our cooking options, but this was not an obstacle to lovely meals, eaten in the charming courtyard with the fountain providing a soothing backdrop. The property is in great shape, clean, and the property manager is professional, courteous, and genuinely eager to help in any way. The owner communicated promptly, clearly, and in a friendly manner. The house has all the modern conveniences you come to expect from distinguished properties. Although it was not a problem, access to cable TV would have given us additional entertainment options–especially as the flat panel TV looked so nice and watching Spanish-language TV would have provided me with another way to practice my rusty Spanish! Again, this did not prove to be a problem, as there is so much to do in and around Merida. There is a DVD player and iPod docking station, so we did have some entertainment options. All in all, this is a wonderful property and I would highly recommend it. I know that if I return to Merida, I am going back to lovely Casa del Panadero.
