We spent a month in this wonderful house in Merida. Neil is incredibly helpful and an excellent host, he replied very quickly to any questions I emailed him.
The house is clean, and had everything we needed. The garden area is lovely and private, with a long narrow pool which is perfect for children (and adults!).
There is a supermarket one block away, so food shopping is simple and easy. One block further is the zoo which has a lot of fairground rides my children enjoyed. It was easy and cheap to get a taxi into the centre of Merida.
If you don't like city activity combined with warmth and sunshine, maybe Merida is not your place.... But if you enjoy the sights and sounds a different culture can bring you, and you like sunshine, you may find it here. I have been neglectful on writing a review because I really don't want too many people finding out about this special spot. Every year, we escape somewhere to discover a new place. This last winter, our escape for warmth was to Merida. We fell in love with the photos of the colorful house and lap pool, and it didn't take much convincing for Tim and I to choose Neil's home for our getaway. Neil, the owner, resides a few blocks away, is very much a conscientious homeowner, and the house has everything we needed or could want. If you are a cook, you will be happy with how well the kitchen is equipped. If you are a swimmer, you will LOVE the pool.... We certainly did! The pool garden area is superb and very private. We are homebodies, and it suited us perfectly. We are also walkers, and loved that we could walk everywhere. There is a nice supermarket just down a few short blocks.... It is about a 20 minute walk to Centro. People are very kind here in Merida, and we really enjoyed Neil. He's the "pool man" on Wednesdays and was kind enough to let us share in tending the garden, and showing me how to help with the pool, which, to me, was a lot of fun! We found lots of good places to go, and lots of general information in a notebook that Neil provides for guests. Our day trip to Mayapán and swim in a cenoté, followed by lunch at a hacienda was a perfect day! Thanks Neil... for sharing your time and space with us. See you again SOON!!!

We had met Neil previously and looked forward to getting into a different neighbourhood in a house that had the amenities we need.
The two bedrooms with their own bathrooms is a great feature for privacy. The kitchen/ dining area provided all utensils we would stock ourselves for in house dining plus a charcoal barbecue. The rear garden, pool area is a quiet sanctuary for relaxing time after cooling off in the lap pool. Many rentals have a "splash" pool but if you're serious about some room and exercise this pool will not disappoint.
Neil is a reliable, hands on owner and a knowledgeable source of info for Merida and area. As others mentioned, groceries, transport, parks and even a gym are nearby with Centro in walkable proximity.
We really enjoyed staying at this house. We were with 3 persons and because of the different rooms (living, kitchen, dining room area, 2 bedrooms and of course the outside area) it was easy to retreat in one of the nooks to have some private time. The house was decorated in a homey way and we immediately felt at home. The swimming pool was awesome, we swam many laps or floated in our air chairs which we brought ourselves (it would be nice if they were provided). September was very hot and sometimes we left the a/c in the bedrooms on with the doors to the other rooms open, to create a little bit more coolness in the living and dining room. The a/c was not really cold so at night time a sheet was more than enough. The kitchen has everything you need and we prepared a lot of meals.
The supermarket around the corner has all the basics and if you need some more specialties there is a bigger supermarket about 20 minutes by foot. We didn't have a car and like to walk to shops, bars and restaurants but that was sometimes a little bit too far (nearest places about 15 minutes) especially because it was so hot outside. The bus stop was nearby and also a taxi was easy to get, but I missed a little bit of 'action' more closer to the house. Although it was nice that the neighborhood was residential and quiet.
Neil was quick in his responses to our questions and I appreciated the folder with information in the house (got a real nice haircut at one of the hairdressers he recommended).
Casa 503 = great pool , great location , great owner ( who answered all my questions about living in Merida),
Merida is a really nice city with everything you need at a reasonable cost , getting around is easy with collectivos at 7 pesos ,and taxis from the casa to the centro is about 40 pesos .Renting a car to visit the coast fishing villages was really interesting and we saw lots of flamingos on the way, ask Neil for the car rental agency .
Mexican league baseball playoffs ,was for me, something I did not want to miss.
The cheers of the fans supporting their team and everything else in the stadium ( food ,music , souvenirs...) at 150 pesos per tickets ... an unforgettable evening.
Thanks again Neil, we recommend casa 503 to everybody who wants to visit a nice and safe place in Mexico and feel like home .
Also see our earlier review, as this is our third visit. We pack lightly for two weeks so appreciate the washer and long clothesline (instant-dry!) in the warm climate. Also loved the new loungers and patio chairs, very comfy. Neil had just bought two new sets of bedding, new set of knives and few replacement items for kitchen, new laundry basket, and said there were a few more things on the way. There is now a basic house cell phone that guests can use on a pay-as-you-go basis, refill at OXXO, very helpful. This is how a vacation rental should be run, and why we returned a third time. Neil has always provided great travel tips as well, he told us of a route that wasn't shown on either of our detailed maps and we had a great adventure!
Merida é o centro cultural do Yucatan com muitos museus, galerias de arte, salas de concerto e música ao vivo livre em parques da cidade. A cidade está cheia de bela arquitetura colonial antigo e muitas igrejas, incluindo a catedral mais antiga das Américas. Há muitos bons restaurantes para todos os gostos e orçamentos - comer tacos de frutos do mar frescos com os moradores ou jantar em estabelecimentos de multa que não seria fora do lugar em Londres ou Nova York. Se o shopping é o seu lugar existem modernos shoppings com ar-condicionado ou você pode explorar as lojas de antiguidades e artesanato em torno de centro ou se perder no labirinto que é San Benito Market. Para o exercício, siga até calle 60 a Estadio Salvador Alvarado, onde no início da manhã você vai encontrar centenas de moradores e ex-mf correr, trabalhar fora, juntando-se em aulas de aeróbica, jogar ténis, squash, raquete-ball, basquetebol, ou apenas andando na luz do sol de manhã cedo.
A paisagem circundante Merida está cheia de lugares interessantes para visitar. Cabeça norte para a costa em Progreso por algum sol, areia e frutos do mar, visitar as colônias de flamingos em Celestun, nadar nas águas subterrâneas frescas quentes de um cenote, visitar uma fazenda e explorar a história que uma vez feita Merida uma das cidades mais ricas o mundo, ou explorar as ruínas de antigas cidades maias em locais como Uxmal, Mayapan ou Chichen-Itza. Seu gerente de propriedade pode providenciar um guia turístico de língua Inglês e transporte para fazer qualquer uma dessas viagens, e também pode facilitar o aluguer de carro.
