Why Mary chose Centro

The house is located in one of the best locations of all of Mérida. With its close proximity to both the beautiful tree lined boulevard, Paseo Montejo, with its various restaurants, cafes and stores, as well as the historical center, one can simply walk out the door and reach these locales on foot. Buses run continuously on the main boulevard, Paseo Montejo, which service many areas of Mérida.

What makes this house unique

The house is located on a non bus street.

Wonderful Restful Home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tranquility is a wonderfully well equipped and stylishly decorated colonial home in the Santa Ana neighbourhood that provides a wonderful vacation property for couples wanting to be within walking distance of the centre of Merida.

The recent addition of the pool and the enhancement of the backyard makes for a very cooling and restful spot in the hotter months. The beautiful tree at the rear of the property and the trees in the surrounding yards ensures that a variety of birds can be seen regularly.

Casa Tranquility is two blocks from shady Paseo Montego with its many restaurants, shops and vibrant nightlife. Evening walks to for ice cream are a constant temptation. The Centro Cultural La Cupula is a block away, the Santa Ana market and park are three blocks away, and the art galleries of Calle 60 are equally close.

We appreciate our interaction with the owner and the service providers that are part of the team that care for Casa Tranquility.

Another Wonderful Winter in Merida

  • 5 of 5

This very comfortable and traditionally decorated home is located ideally close to the Paseo Montejo, Centro Cultural La Cupula, Santa Ana Food & Craft Market and a raft of Merida's first class restaurants. If you are interested in leisurely bicycling on Sunday morning, nightly walks to Helados Colon for ice cream, seeing world class art shows, joining with the locals Saturday night for Noche Mexicana at the base of the Paseo or just relaxing around the pool, this Casa is ideal.

And a short walk farther away is all the attractions of Santa Lucia and the Plaza Principal. What more could you want?

Great home, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tranqulity was a very nice home. We loved the design of the home. The pool was large enough for me to do my laps and we were able to walk to everything (we’re from Chicago so we’re used to walking). Really enjoyed Merida and hope to come back soon!

A Really Nice Place !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned to Casa Tranquility for a second visit in December 2016. This is a comfortable home with a nice pool area in the back to cool off and just relax by. Located in Santa Ana, it is close to many restaurants, galleries, etc. A walk to Centro and Mercado Galvez is 20 minutes. This is a very well run rental property and we recommend it highly.

Sincere Thanks for a Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Just a quick note to offer my most sincere thanks to Mary and Neil!

Mary, your home is impeccable in every capacity! From location (on a lovely quiet street just 2 ½ blocks from the gorgeous Paseo, near restaurants, cafes, shopping and a number of plazas with their music and dancing and churches and museums) to décor (elegant and clean, with enviable fixtures, comfortable amenities and a clean flow from front to back) to the easy livability of the property (a fabulous home that feels like home), we were enchanted with every detail! The back patio was a lovely relaxing retreat where wine flowed and al fresco dining was in order after a long day, walking gorgeous Merida and discovering the many fabulous attractions. The well appointed kitchen is the hub of this lovely house, where meals were prepared using market goods from the many markets within walking distance. Thank you for offering this wonderful home!

And Neil, thank you for your time and service! We appreciated the many tips and the offers of assistance. Thankfully, no assistance was necessary due to the perfection of the house, neighborhood and city. But it was nice to know you were there in the case that we needed you. And indeed, opening up the house and allowing that gorgeous cross-breeze to ventilate meant we didn’t even need to use the fans very often, let alone the AC.

Thank you both! Our stay in Merida was simply perfect!
