Holiday Rental House
If you are looking for an elegant and luxurious home in the best location of the historic Centro of Merida at reasonable rents, one block from Parque Santiago, Casa de los Monos is it! On the corner of Calle 57 and Calle 74, this home is in Colonia Santiago, the best residential area in the city. Casa de los Monos is not a 'rental house.' Rather it is a private residence which is occasionally available to a few, responsible people for extended stays. Therefore, the furnishings, linens, art, and appointments are commensurate with what you expect to find in a private, luxury home. The main floor living room has glass doors opening onto the heated pool.

On the corner of Calle 57 and Calle 74, this home is in Colonia Santiago, the best residential area in the city. Casa de los Monos is not a 'rental house.' Rather it is a private residence which is occasionally available to a few, responsible people for extended stays. Therefore, the furnishings, linens, art, and appointments are commensurate with what you expect to find in a private, luxury home. The main floor living room has glass doors opening onto the heated pool. At one end you will find a beautiful tiled and fully equipped kitchen (with powder room) which opens to a lovely dining room with comfortable seating for 8. The other end of the living room opens to a large guest room with two double beds. The elegant and comfortable master bedroom has a queen size bed and opens onto a glassed in sitting room/office going out to the pool. A huge marble bathroom/dressing room connects the two main floor bedrooms. On the second floor is the third bedroom, beautifully decorated with a queen size bed and full bathroom. A balcony overlooks the pool and offers a private suite feel to the upstairs. Weekly maid service included. Additional maid/cook service available at extra cost. Of significant importance, Merida has the lowest crime rate in Mexico. A strong police presence is everywhere. This is a very safe and friendly city. The large exercise lap pool has fountains which flow into it, and the lighting at night is magical. The second floor bedroom will comfortably sleep two in a queen size bed. The other two bedrooms downstairs offer a queen size bed in one and two double beds in the other. All the downstairs rooms enjoy large glass windows and doors facing the pool. The ceilings are 18 feet high. The entire building has separate air conditioning in each room so that you may maintain your room and space cool to your level of preference. You will be responsible for paying the electricity expense separately (as stated in the rental contract) which can be deducted from your security deposit or paid directly to property manager. Two of the greatest Mayan pyramids (Chichen Itza and Uxmal) are within a two hour drive. Cancun and Guatemala are just 4.5 hours away. The lovely beach of Progreso with its beautiful new Malecon is only a 30 minute drive from Merida. Enjoy symphonies, ballets, theater, fine dining, incredible museums, galleries, modern movie theaters, and so much more in this beautiful 'White City' that looks like Paris. Taxis are very reasonable, and the shopping is incredible. Come and enjoy one of the most beautiful areas you can imagine, as you relax in a lovely, historical home; enjoy the pool; relax to the music of the built-in stereo sound system; and explore World Heritage sites.

About the neighbourhood
Santiago neighborhood is Merida's Oldest neighborhood, once known as 'Barrio de Los Indios'. Santiago is in Merida's historical center, and like other neighborhoods, life takes place around a plaza, or park in the middle of the neighborhood, where there are food vendors, a fresh produce market and live music one night a week. Santiago is home to the Merida English language library and Elena Poniatowska cultural center, just a few blocks from the house. Getting to Merida's central attractions, museums, theaters and the like is only a short walk away.
