"We loved the house. It has a lovely pool. The kitchen is well equipped with plates, utensils and appliances. The high ceilings give the house a spacious feel and provide good air circulation with both fans and air conditioners. The bedrooms upstairs are spacious and comfortable. The closets are large with lots of hangars. The bedrooms have fans and air conditioners. The beds are large and comfortable. Each bedroom has a private bath with shower. The bus goes right past the house coming and going from downtown. The front room and patio keeps out the street noise. Carlos and Liz are great hosts and they and their team strive to make your stay enjoyable. They give immediate attention to any problem with the house big or small. Uber has been in Mérida for about a year and you can get downtown for 30 pesos. Or it is a 20 minute walk. Around the corner is a bake shop, a pizza shop and a small tienda. We rented cars from Veloz for 1100 to 1500 pesos per day depending on size. All insurance included and unlimited mileage. Delivered to the house and picked up afterwards."

"This house is unbelievable. 20 foot ceilings, tall wooden doors, mosaico tile floors, ceiling fans, skylights and your own private pool. Jungle birds wake you up every morning. Comfortable beds, beautiful furniture, super clean, great air flow from front to back (there are large windows and doors on both ends), there is air conditioning but instead of using the A/C we started and ended our days by taking a dip in the pool to cool down a bit. Merida is hot but breezy so you never feel uncomfortable. The house is very large and can easily house 4 people or a family. The kitchen was fully functioning so we ended up cooking a few days. Carlos gave us great restaurant suggestions (please try Glendy's homemade horchata and sandwiches) and the neighbours were very friendly and helped us out with directions, etc... There are 2 small stores across the street for snacks, water and beer and a large grocery store 10 min walk away. The house is 3 blocks from the bus station so it's very easy to get to. The Centro is a 10-15 min walk away but we found in the end that the neighbourhood the house is in is actually much more interesting for food and culture (also less touristy), especially around San Sebastian Park area. They have a set up of patios between the food carts and the food is the best I've had during our entire trip (try the chicken tamale and the panuchos at Ligio 2). If you look for something more busy and intense, Merida has a huge mercado around 65 and 67. It has everything, we walked around for hours. Merida gets quiet early (around 10-11pm) and feels very safe. Carlos was very responsive to all our questions and requests and generally a pleasure to deal with. We were so sad to leave."

"Our stay at CASA 57 could not have been any better. We have visited Merida many times over the last decades, have stayed in multiple hotels and homes. CASA 57 offered the most modern and comfortable a commendations we have had. The location is perfect in the historical centro and the wonderful Santiago neighborhood nearby. Everything to see, experience and eat are just a few blocks in any direction. Being able to cool off in the pool after journeying out to the Mayan sites was another huge plus. We highly recommend CASA 57 to our fellow travelers who also enjoy the comforts of staying in historical Merida."
