If you are looking to rent a truly grand and spacious colonial home in historic Merida, Casa la Rosalina is the ideal choice!
Casa la Rosalina is a recently restored home, conveniently located close to the city center, multiple museums, arts and culture, restaurants and parks. Great for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, families (with kids) and a group of friends. It is located within walking distance (20 minutes) of the main square, or zocalo, in the centre of Merida
Entering the home, you will be initially impressed by the spaciousness of the rooms and the tall ceilings. The house features beautiful and original pasta tile floors, as well as colonial details such as archways, columns, wood-beamed ceilings and meticulously restored wooden doors. Skylights and fans located throughout the home add to the open and airy feel. Each room effortlessly flows into the next with a courtyard situated in the centre that connects to three of the bedrooms
Much of the furniture in Casa La Rosalina has been hand-crafted by local Mexican craftsmen, including all the beds and many of the accent pieces. Many articles were purchased as antiques and repurposed to bring a style and ambience that has been described by guests as having a “wow factor”. Art abounds in the house, with a mix of traditional and modern
Both large and small parties appreciate the privacy the space allows given the expansive layout. There are multiple living and gathering areas within the walls of Casa la Rosalina including a leisure room with television and library, a separate living room and a dedicated home office space with desk. The home comfortably sleeps 7 in 4 large, air conditioned bedrooms, but can handle a few more with notice. These rooms and the four bathrooms have all been well planned and professionally decorated to provide an eclectic sense of home for you and your guests. All bedrooms are set back in the house for maximum privacy and peaceful sleeping
The modern kitchen has everything needed to enjoy your stay including a separate walk-in pantry, multiple appliances and extensive dishware. Just outside in the courtyard sits a covered bar for entertaining and an outdoor casual dining area with views to the gorgeous pool, large yard and hammock terrace at the rear. A separate dining room comfortably seats 8 at a formal table
The pool is large and has several comfortable loungers along its perimeter for relaxing after a swim or refreshing midday dip. The backyard is a shaded oasis with the original stone walls allowing absolute privacy and tranquility. A modern outdoor shower is an additional bonus. A rooftop terrace creates the ideal place for enjoying a morning coffee or an evening cocktail while taking in vistas of the surrounding cityscape. From the terrace you can see all the way to the renowned 16th century cathedral located in the main square of Merida
