The Space. Casa Koala is newly restored by an acclaimed local architect, Victor Cruz, and located in the beautiful Santiago neighborhood just a few blocks away from the lively park and square. This home has a beautiful and open flow all the way through the property. Walking through the large colonial doors, you find a bright and spacious living area opening right into the kitchen and dining space. Just past that is a patio connected to a shaded courtyard and pool to relax and refresh in after an eventful day in the warm Merida sun. There is a lovely and quiet casita with direct access to the courtyard which is separate from the main house and protected from any street noise to ensure a sound night's sleep.

Casa Koala is newly restored by an acclaimed local architect, Victor Cruz, and located in the beautiful Santiago neighborhood just a few blocks away from the lively park and square. This home has a beautiful and open flow all the way through the property. Walking through the large colonial doors, you find a bright and spacious living area opening right into the kitchen and dining space. Just past that is a patio connected to a shaded courtyard and pool to relax and refresh in after an eventful day in the warm Merida sun. There is a lovely and quiet casita with direct access to the courtyard which is separate from the main house and protected from any street noise to ensure a sound night's sleep. We can either arrange two single beds or one king size bed depending on your preferences. The first floor also has a full bath in between the patio and the pool. The second bedroom is located on the second level above the kitchen and dining area. It has a balcony that looks down onto the pool and has a gorgeous view of the surrounding greenery, including a stunning red flowering tree hanging over the casita. In addition to the balcony, the room also has a private patio for some peaceful alone time and an en suite bathroom. Extra Details. There are many restaurants, shopping, and various entertainment options within walking distance of Casa Koala. You can easily find a taxi on one of the busier streets and we will provide you with a number to call one if you wish. Also we invite you to use the two bikes we have provided on the property so that you may take part in Merida’s traditional Sunday bike ride through centro. This property has plenty of street parking available. We provide you with basic kitchen equipment and appliances including a toaster and coffee machine so that you can fuel up with a satisfying breakfast to start your day. Also, every stay includes two free beers and a bottle of wine for our guests. Don’t worry if you forgot your shampoo because both bathrooms are equipped with their own shampoo, conditioner, and body wash dispensers. In addition to TV and cable there is a PS3 player to play movies or games which is also connected to the house WIFI. You also have an alarm clock where you can dock an iPhone or iPod and listen to your own music. All of our guests are welcome to the entirety of the home and have access to use anything on the property including the kitchen, pool, and any other amenities. About us.
