Welcome to Casa Gloria!
Your Vacation Home in the
Colonial Heart of Merida
Only four blocks from Merida’s colorful central plaza and two blocks from Parque Santa Lucia, Casa Gloria is a renovated colonial home with three large bedrooms, a casita, four baths and a swimming pool. Casa Gloria is a place of peace and simple luxury, with high ceilings, original pasta-tiled floors, and an Art Deco feel that bespeaks Merida’s historic French influence. It is an ideal base of operations for a relaxed Merida vacation for groups of four to seven.
Entering from the street, you are immediately surrounded by a blend of old world beauty and modern amenities. The dramatic entrance hallway flows into a spacious outdoor sala (living room), and on into a shady central courtyard, open to the sky yet cooled by mature tropical trees.
A modern media room with large flat-panel TV (complete with English-language channels) and comfortable leather furniture leads into a splendid master suite plus two more large bedrooms, both of which open onto the courtyard. The casita is a small, freestanding private guest house with a foldout futon for sleeping.
Entertaining at Casa Gloria is a joyful enterprise centering around the colorful, fully-equipped kitchen, which opens onto the pool area, covered patio and adjacent dining room with its stained glass windows and French doors. The large pool with salt filtration system will be your oasis as you soak up the sun—then blend up the Margaritas, turn on the lights and savor the tropical night, amid the fragrant breeze and the overarching royal palm trees.
Two newly renovated bathrooms serve the front of the house; two more bathrooms, linked by a stone-walled outdoor shower, are in the pool area and casita. All plumbing in the house is upgraded to high North American standards; the UV filtration system means that the water is safe to drink throughout the house. All rooms have efficient, modern ceiling fans; the media room and three bedrooms each have their own air-conditioning units. There is also a laundry room with washer and dryer.
The house is served by its own WiFi network, so you can be both on vacation and online at the same time. House rental also includes use of Amigo local cell phone. Stereo/CD player with iPod hookup is in the dining room cabinet. We have a local, bilingual property manager available to meet guests and for emergencies.
Fall in Love With Historic Merida
In the TV room you will find a Casa Gloria binder with information on favorite restaurants, day trips, and getting around in Merida and the Yucatan. Great restaurants are literally a few steps away. You can amble to Merida’s zocalo (central plaza) in five minutes, passing along the way museums, the opera house, theatres, restaurants, and merchants of all kinds. The Merida English Library, Santa Lucia Park, and the great central market are all within easy walking distance. There are incredible adventures and day-trips in every direction—Chichen Itza, Uxmal and the Ruta Puc, Dzibilchaltun, Izamal, Progreso and Celestun are easily reachable by taxi, bus or rental car. If you rent a car, safe parking is available in the parking lot next door.
Merida and the Yucatan Peninsula are full of fascinating sights, sounds and pleasures…and Casa Gloria is right in the heart of it all.
