Beginning with the ease of our booking, arriving to find a breathtaking home, and ending with all our expectations having being met, we can recommend Casa Castellanos wholeheartedly and with full confidence that you will enjoy your stay. The photos on the website cannot relay how truly beautiful we found the casa to be. We stayed for 5 weeks and have already booked for 2 months next year. The home is beautifully designed by a renowned local architect, with a huge master suite, complete with large screen SKY tv, sunken tub, double sinks, plenty of wardrobe space, and french style doors that open to the pool. The second bedroom (also with flat screen SKY tv and nice private bath) is at the front of the house so expect a bit of traffic noise from Calle 62. We have rented homes in Merida for the past 5 winters, and this house and pool topped the list. The pool is shoulder deep, great to cool off after a day in town. There is a half bath near the pool. You can walk to Paseo de Montejo (2 blocks), the market and square at Santa Ana (4 blocks), and even the squares at Santa Lucia and the main square at Plaza Grande. Plenty of restaurants in walking distance (local pizza at Faustos, wood fired pizza at Rescaldos - both within a block). Parking available on the street, or monthly rental space available 2 doors down. Maid service and pool service weekly. The included Wi-fi worked perfectly. Beautiful granite counters in kitchen, nice big kitchen island, and full covered open air living space (with another large screen tv in a gorgeous 12 ft tall cabinet) makes for pleasant breezes. Seating for 6 at poolside patio where you can see the parrots each morning and evening. All in all, we cannot say enough about how accommodating the owners were in making our stay enjoyable. We look forward to next year's stay at Casa Castellanos.
