Casa Caballito is a charming 200-year old Spanish Colonial home ideally suited to one or two couples seeking old world charm and modern comforts.
Located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Centro Historico, Casa Caballito is positioned on a quiet non-bus street just three blocks north of Santiago Park.
The Merida English Language Library is little more than a block away and the festivities of the main square, Santa Ana's arts district and Paseo Montejo's twin mansions and sophisticated dining scene are all within an easy walk through the best part of town.
This architect-designed home is a stunning blend of Spanish Colonial charm and modern, open-plan comfort. The house features 18-foot wood beamed ceilings, original pasta floor tiles, a tranquil high-walled courtyard with limestone feature wall, and a fabulous, contemporary open-plan second-story living room and terrace that's the perfect place to spend cocktail hour.
The ground floor king bedroom, off the courtyard, has an ensuite bathroom with barrel ceilings, high-pressure rain shower, and 3 foot-long soaking tub with louvered wooden door that can be opened to the courtyard.
The upstairs bedroom (also with king bed) features a beautiful porthole window with wooden detailing, ensuite bathroom with high-pressure rain shower, and a walk-in closet. The ingenious design means the house stays cool with little effort. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned and all rooms throughout the house have ceiling fans.
The lounge/living area upstairs features banquette-style built-in sofas that can seat between 6-8 people, with plenty of room to spread out for couples. A flat screen television with Cablemas TV (including a good selection of English language channels), DVD player, iPod dock and high-speed wireless internet are all included.
The brand new kitchen has a six-burner stove, full size fridge, microwave oven and dishwasher (a rarity for Merida) and comes fully equipped with an 8-person dinner setting, quality wine glasses, cookware, flatware, juice squeezer and French press coffee maker. The pantry is stocked with kitchen basics making shopping at Santiago markets and eating in a delight. In the dining room an extension table can accommodate six people with ease and floor to ceiling sliding glass doors give a year round alfresco feel.
