This colonial house in historic Centro has been lovingly restored and decorated to create a relaxing atmosphere for your vacation in Merida. Conveniently located next to the outdoor garden of La Negrita, the most famous revived cantina in all of Merida (this is the one that started the movement), Casa La Negrita is steps away from great food, live music, cold beer and the best margaritas. Don’t worry though, because being a traditional cantina, doors close at 10pm.
With soaring ceilings, pasta tiled floors, multiple archways, wrought iron and natural stone, Casa La Negrita has an old world feel that you will love. Through the welcoming foyer, you arrive in the living room which has Cable-TV and music as well as access to the central patio with its babbling fountain. Next is the open kitchen which is fully equipped for a relaxing cooking experience preparing dishes with the fresh produce you purchased that morning at the nearby market. The large adjacent dining room occupies this open space in the home and looks out onto the stone wall and Mayan head fountain of the courtyard.
Also on the ground floor, you will find 2 of the 3 bedrooms which are situated apart from each other and both have king-sized beds. The first of these bedrooms is at the front of the house. It is spacious, well-appointed and has a separate bathroom. The second bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom as well as an attached office or computer room. Both of these bedrooms offer easy access to the garden and pool, as well as the exterior lounging areas.
The pool is the second heart of any Merida home and this one does not disappoint. The large pool has plenty of sunning space around it and is flanked by tropical gardens. At night, this area is truly stunning with well-placed accent lighting and the lighted pool casting shadows and shimmering light from the water onto the walls around it.
Up the stairs from the pool area sits a covered bar and sitting terrace. The last of the 3 bedrooms is also situated here on the upper floor. This comfortable and secluded bedroom has two twin beds, an en-suite bathroom, a walk-in closet and a very large terrace for enjoying a nice breeze in the evening with views of the beautiful church at Santa Ana.
