Nov. 2010 Where we stayed for our second visit...

On our second visit to Merida we stayed over on Calle 72 in a house called Casa Colibri. It was just up the road from Santiago (which we absolutely love) and we ended up eating on Santiago Plaza at least once a day. Those panuchos are something else.

The house we stayed in was another amazing house. This time a two storey colonial with an amazing upper patio that over looked the roof tops of the surrounding neighborhood. I actually fell asleep in that hammock on the first night and woke up at 3am.

We had a great time and really enjoyed having the master suite upstairs with its own outdoor seating area. The pool was nice and deep and long and caught just enough of the day's sun.

It was a great house with huge bedrooms and bathrooms and a great lounge room that opened out onto the sun and pool area. The road was a little too noisy but hey!

Here are some pics of the house and the downstairs rooms. Unfortunately, I can't find any pics of the master suite and bathroom upstairs. DOH!

 This was the little outdoor courtyard next to the pool an that tree was a sour-orange tree and they kept falling into the pool. We actually ate some and they were quite nice.

This was the guest room downstairs that was at the front of the house. Our friend who stayed with us a couple of days said that the street noise was loud and woke them up.

On this trip we went home NOB with three possible contenders for our house hunt and we let them mull over in our minds for a while. We think we have chosen THE one but will wait until we go back down for another view and then make our decision.

Stay tuned for our own little House Hunters International and see if you choose the one we end up picking.

I know, I's been down before but hey...this is our little dream so go with it.
