Clean, completely outfitted, two bedroom home with fully equipped kitchen, large garden, water purification/softening system, garden terraces, washer/dryer, completely furnished. Located in residential area, easy access to downtown. Relaxing ambience
The house has very agreeable spaces and the large windows look out onto a garden with palms, lawns and the occasional fruit tree.
The entire house is included in the rent, including all services (washer/dryer, wi-fi, etc.) If renter has a car, there is a carport connected to the house.
Interaction with guests
The house is next door to my house and the yard is shared. The dogs can often be found sleeping on one of the terraces. My office is connected to one corner of house, and I am ususally available for any questions.
Other things to note
It's a great house for walkers since everything necessary is no further than a 15 min walk. Also, the location is inside the city, but without the traffic and noise of dowtown.
Generally, we just ask that renters respect the house and gardens. We have allowed dogs in the house as long as the renter is careful about cleaning. We ask that renters don't smoke inside the house, but there are plenty of terraces on which to enjoy a smoke.
A long time ex-pat in Merida, I spend most of my time with my family or working to feed them. That said, we do find time to get out to the nearby Gulf coast, into the hinterland to see ruins, or downtown. My interests include reading voraciously and broadly; I've currently got Marco Polo´s "Travels", a treatise on the Book of Job, a series of New Yorkers, and an essay by Pahmuk sitting around half read. I also love to eat large plates of Asian food and/or fish and seafood. One of my daily regrets is that I do not have enough time to work in the yard and my neglected vegetable garden. Most of the time I keep it watered enough, but it would be so much nicer to really get it under control and looking nice.
