The home is beautiful, well maintained, art filled, rich in amenities, clearly a work of care and love.

We were blown away by Sandas property the minute we walked in the door. The detail and cleanliness of the property was incredible. Each room has plenty of privacy from one other and the pool and courtyard is incredible. We will definitely be back. They were also very helpful with directions, local restaurants, etc.

This is the 2nd time we rent Sanda & Steve’s house. It’s an amazing property, better than in pictures and they are great hosts. I really recommend anyone going to Merida to stay with them, Sanda was super fast in responding.

This house is a dream (particularly the outdoor area). Sandra and Steven are incredibly gracious hosts and are clearly invested in ensuring guests have a great stay. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience!

This is a jaw-droppingly gorgeous home. There is pride of ownership throughout and whatever happens behind the scenes to make
the house picture-perfect is seamlessly invisible. The hands-on management by these loving owners shows in every amazing corner
of this space, including in the unbelievable artwork. The house was honestly so stunning we really just wanted to hang out
in it and forego the sightseeing entirely.

We loved Casablanca so much! Do not hesitate to book this JAW dropping gorgeous home. Set in the historic Centro, your are surround by lush gardens, mesmerizing pool, incredible art, & absolutely beautiful design. We just left , didn’t want to leave and are already planning another trip -for a much longer time! Sanda & Steve are so great, and what they have created is absolutely stunning & holds a special Loveliness that is a rare find. We have visited Merida several times & have stayed in several beautiful homes, but this one takes (or rather gives) “the cake”. Their thoughtful touches throughout, their attention to detail, their eye for gorgeous design…their beautiful art enveloping & enlivening us- (I wish we could have had time to visit their studio) The historic renovation is pristine. They stocked the fridge for us with beautiful yogurt, eggs granola, fruit, coffee, waters, drinks, a beautiful bottle of wine- and they were at our disposal at a moments notice! (Not that you will need anything) Steve has prepared the most thorough guide of area and home that I have ever seen & his playlist created just for Casablanca literally set the tone for chill out days by the pool, morning bird watching or garden yoga, zen meandering & prepping for afternoon cantinas & delicious (and cosmopolitan) dinner excursions! (Although That kitchen is prime for any gourmand!) They also came and set up the projection TV for an evening movie night! (We even ordered uber-eats delivered right to our door!) Seriously- this is the role model/cover home for all Airbnb’s! We thank them so much for sharing it with us & will return to beautiful Merida & stunning Casablanca again when we can!

Really beautiful house. Looked just like the photos! Pool was much nicer and bigger than photos made it seem. Lots of everything you would need! Pots pans-glassware-towels etc. Awesome location and nice neighborhood! Really loved the private courtyard and spent every night outside!

This place is just perfect. The space is incredible! Every detail from Steve and Sanda’s beautiful art throughout to the attention in every detail to make our stay the best Airbnb experience we have had. The loveliest hosts, helpful, warm and charming.

Sanda and Steve’s house exceeded our expectations! We had an amazing time here and debated multiple times extending our trip to stay longer in their home. The photos don’t capture the full charm of this home it’s GORGEOUS! Three days in and we had barely left to visit Merida. We will absolutely be back with more friends/family. Can’t think of enough things to say, Sanda + Steve’s hospitality was amazing – they welcomed us like family. See you next time !!

“Hi Steve and Sanda. Nothing to say except that you both are fantastic people and exceeded every expectation.
It was such a pleasure to meet you both and cannot wait to return to see you again!!”

As a long time Airbnb host myself, Sanda and Steve put me to shame!! They have thought of EVERYTHING and being guests of theirs was such a delight. They were extremely easy to communicate with and are available to provide insight and suggestions for anything you need. Their home is GORGEOUS. The pictures don’t even do the luxurious, unique and captivating, sanctuary they have created justice. My only regret of our trip to Merida was being so busy with events and not having enough time to enjoy this beautiful home. I saw many beautiful homes in Merida where friends were also staying and this home stood out as such a mesmerizing, relaxing, COOL, and beautiful space. The location is great, very easy to get to anywhere in Merida quickly by walking or UBER which works fantastically throughout the city.
