Comfortable home in a lovely neighbourhood with a supermarket and lively square within walking distance. Fully equipped with nice extras such as two yoga mats and bikes. Beautiful interior design. We stayed longer than expected because the house was so relaxing!

This is how all Airbnb's should be, what a fabulous place. Unfortunately I can only award five stars for each section but it's way higher than five stars. Everything is first class with no expense spared, unlimited coffee, shampoo, soap, water, beers in the fridge! Wow is all we can say. We didn't want to leave and will most definitely be returning. Thank you so much to Becca and her family. Simply fabulous. Magali

Our stay at Casa Koala was far and away the best Airbnb experience I've had to date. Responsive, friendly, professional, accommodating, (We checked in 3 hours early, and Becca still made a point to greet us)—what's not to rave about. Becca and her team went out of their way to make sure we felt welcome and satisfied. I wouldn't think twice about staying at one of their Mérida properties again. Highly recommended!

Our stay at Casa Koala was perfect. Couldn't have asked for more seamless accommodations. House is a quick drive or bike ride to central Merida. Parking along the street is free and safe. Love this house, love Merida. Thank you Becca and Beto. L.

This place is exactly what you see in the photos! Don't hesitate to book it. You will love it! The location is great to tour around downtown Mérida. The terrace and pool area is just what you need to refresh. Becca and Michael are great hosts, house was clean and in great conditions. It has everything you need. And what we liked most is to stay at a renovated traditional house. What a great work architects did. Congrats!

Hi I'm Becca, currently 25 years old, and working towards my BBA in marketing and B.A. in psychology from University of St. Thomas in Houston.

The last few years have been exciting for me. In 2013 I had the opportunity to take some time from university to go on a trip around the world with my grandmother. Of course I jumped at the chance and off we went for 4 months on the MS Amsterdam. I came back a completely different person and travel became an indispensable part of my life.

Not only did I get to see and experience in real life what I had only ever read in history books, but it really changed my life in a concrete way... Along the way I dropped 40 lb! When I got home I was inspired to lose a total of 100 lb alongside my family. My mom, dad and I motivate and help each other meet our goals to this day. Ironic how it's all from losing weight on an all you can eat cruise ship.

Since then a lot has changed. I once again seized the opportunity to go around the world this past January, which was just as amazing an experience. I've been to over 60 different countries, six continents, love experiencing new cultures, cuisines, and most of all people. By next year I will be shaking my travel bug for a little while and settling in Mérida, Mexico.

I'm following my parents, who all ready to start their new life in Mérida. My mom has been working in Mexico City for 20+ years and decided she wanted make her dream home in Mérida. My family and I have been working in and visiting Mexico ever since I can remember, especially the Yucatan. Now we are excited to fully immerse ourselves into the Yucatecan culture and build our vacation rental business together, Burro y Flauta. We hope to get others just as excited about this beautiful city as we are.

For more information about us, you can visit our F . B page. I hope to see you in Mérida! Saludos.
