Colorful Colonial in Centro for Rent
Vacation Rental Home Full of Light, Color and Space!
A delightful artist's retreat and vaction rental in the heart of colonial Merida, Yucatan, a city where the arts are celebrated...
Casa Claire is a restored 250 year old residence with two air-conditioned bedrooms with attached private baths. One bedroom has a double bed, the other has two twin beds. There is additional comfortable sleeping for two in the spacious loft which overlooks the open courtyard at the center of the house.
The courtyard with lovely fountain is surrounded by open sitting and dining areas, and a well-equipped kitchen (stove and refrigerator, of course, but also microwave, mixer and coffee maker).
Above it all is a roof terrace, perfect for star gazing or catching a refreshing evening breeze.
Enjoy the Indoor/Outdoor Life
By day, swing in the courtyard hammock or sit in a colorful hammock chair, and watch the clouds go by. Most ceilings in the house are 20 feet or more, with ceiling fans throughout, making Casa Claire open, airy and bright.
Excellent Central Location
If you can pull yourself away from the easy comfort inside the house, go outside and find the city of Merida practically at your doorstep. Turning left after stepping out the front door, it's an easy five minute walk to the main square with its splended cathedral, museums, shops and people-watching, not to mention the adjacent Jose Peon Contreras Opera House and the State University.
Turn right, and it's only a few minutes to Parque Santiago with its open fresh food and flower market, great local cuisine and beautifully restored cathedral. Go there on Tuesday nights and get a special treat! Live Big Band music under the stars and open-air public dancing!
Internet cafes, bookstores, laundry services, all-nite convenience stores, restaurants, bars, movie theatres, playhouses and much more are only blocks away.

Hope you are not working too hard :)
My husband and I are looking for a place for a month next winter (mid-Feb to mid-March 2017). One or two bedrooms. We like lots of natural light and a small private terrace/garden, not too noisy. We'd like a plunge pool (or bigger). And of course we want to pay as little as possible, ha ha!
Can you keep us in mind and let me know what you come up with?
We have been to Merida before and love it .. My husband insists that we are within walking distance of the historic centre. Gracias!
