Overview

Photos and Description of the Barrio de Santiago vacation house rental

Full amenities, from 2 to 4 people, including aircon and everything you need!

FREE maid, pool and gardening services are included once every 7 days. All you have to do is relax! Longer stays attract even better rates - just ask. FREE cold Beer and all you need for your first breakfast is available for you on arrival and a FREE bottle of wine for all rentals of 7 days or more. NO EXTRA CHARGE for 4 people!

Want to escape the hustle and bustle of Centro while still being part of it? Relax and unplug at Casa de Pedro May with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, plus a large private pool surrounded by a lush tropical garden and clear blue skies.

Decorated in a mixture of architectural styles, this home blends old antiques with modern conveniences and furnishings to provide all the elements of a comfy stay, including plenty of indoor/outdoor living, aircon in the bedrooms, ceiling fans, internet and cable TV and much more. The fully screened rear terrace is where you'll spend your days entertaining and relaxing.

Feel like heading out and about? Take a short stroll to Santiago market for some great street food, big band dancing in the square or people watching from one of the many shaded park benches. A little further east and you'll hit Mérida's main square where you can explore the historic house of the Montejo family, the first Spanish Governor, check out the Cathedral and learn all about the fascinating history of the White City.

Head back home and finish the day off with another dip in your pool and an ice-cold cerveza. Zero distractions combined with the magic of Santiago - a perfect recipe for total relaxation!

The house is very popular due to its central location, good value for money and spacious luxury and privacy. It really is 5 star luxury for a great price. All taxes are included. NO CLEANING OR MAINTENANCE CHARGES, unlike some other websites and property management companies that sneakily add them on when you come to book! Your only other cost is for electricity, which is standard practice here, is based on actual usage, and usually amounts to approx $US5 dollars a day per bedroom, with sensible aircon use in the Summer months. In Winter only ceiling fans will be necessary.

This spacious Colonial house dates from 1890 and has been fully refurbished with all modern conveniences, fitted kitchen, a decent sized pool big enough to exercise in, lush tropical gardens and a rooftop lookout tower.

In the popular Santiago district, a vibrant and lively neighbourhood, it's just 12 minutes walk to the Cathedral and main square and only 5 minutes from the colourful local market with its fresh fruit, spices, flowers and authentic Mexican Yucatecan food - don't miss the Panuchos Yucatecos! :-)

Both bedrooms have air conditioning for those summer months, and the high ceilings and interior gardens mean the house has excellent air flow and even in the hottest months, remains nice and cool.

Mérida is proud to call itself the City of Peace and is recognised as one of the safest and friendliest cities in México. If you love Culture, then this is the place for you. Enjoy symphonies, ballets, theatre, fine dining, incredible museums, galleries, modern movie theatres, and so much more in this beautiful 'White City'. There is so much to do here, that you will never get bored - this is just one of many reasons why I live here!

Two of the greatest Mayan pyramids (Chichen Itza and Uxmal) are just an hour's drive away. Cancun and Playa del Carmen are just 3 hours away. The lovely beach of Progreso with its beautiful Malecon is only a 30 minute drive from the house. There are numerous Haciendas to visit and cenotes (underground lakes) to swim in. Be sure to click on VIDEO above to see a short personal video tour which shows you just how special this property is!

MY PERSONAL RESTAURANT FAVOURITES:

Mérida: Amaro´s (in Calle 59), Apoala and Chaya Maya (both in Santa Lucia), and Bollicines in Paseo Montejo.

Progreso: Los Henequenes.

Chelem: La Playa and La Terracita.

CASA DE PEDRO MAY is a beautifully restored Colonial house, dating from 1890, with a decent sized swimming pool and situated in the Historic Centre of Mérida, founded by the Spanish in the 16th Century, using the stones from the Pyramid of the existing Ancient Maya city for the Cathedral. Just 10 minutes walk from the centre of town,  in the charming Santiago Park area with its historic buildings, daily market full of fresh produce, character and regular local dancing, as well as its pretty Church. Mérida is the perfect base from which to explore the magnificent nearby Maya pyramids at Chichén-Itzá and Uxmal. Progreso's seafood and sandy beach is only 20 minutes away by road on the Gulf of México. The Winter climate from October to March is around 27C and sunny with 12 hours of light every day.

Additional information about rental rates

CHECK IN: The house is available for check in after 3pm. Check out is 11am. Depending on the availability of the home, I am happy to accommodate an early check-in.

REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT: For your convenience this is NOT taken at the time of booking. Instead 300 US dollars is due upon your arrival, in cash (you can pay in pesos if you prefer). Assuming no damages, your deposit will be returned to you at the end of your stay, minus a charge for electricity you actually used (see next item). For stays of longer than one month the refundable security deposit is 500 US dollars. For stays longer than three months, the first and last months rent will also be due in advance.

ELECTRICITY: Guests will be charged for electricity usage. This is standard practice here and is based on actual consumption. The house has great airflow and sensible use of aircon should mean approx 5 US dollars a day for each bedroom used. I will read the meter at check in and on departure and the cost will be deducted from your deposit.

BOOKING: The rental is due via paypal in 2 payments with 50% on booking & the remainder 2 weeks before arrival. VRBO's service fee is due separately via credit card with the 1st payment.

SERVICES: Complimentary maid, pool and gardening service are included for all reservations. (1 service every 7 days).

CANCELLATION: Cancellation within 30 days of arrival will incur the loss of 50% of the rental amount. It is recommended that you take out travel insurance to cover this eventuality. I look forward to welcoming you to "Casa de Pedro May" soon - safe travels.

Notes:
If you want Attractions and History, Mérida and its surrounding area is brimming with them! Maya Temples, underground water filled caverns of fresh water (cenotes) that you can swim in, Museums, theatre, ballet, dancing in the street, marimba bands, markets, great open air dining...stunning architecture, this city has it all. And all against a backdrop of almost continual sunny skies, with 12 hours of light - 6am to 6pm at the height of the European and North American Winter and a pleasant 27C. This is quite simply why I live here! You will find bread, eggs, beer, butter, fruit juice, bottled water, tea and coffee, waiting for you so that you don't need to do any shopping on arrival, and can simply relax after your journey. For stays of 7 days or more you will also find a bottle of wine. I aim to make your experience the best you could possibly have & I am "on call" nearby to answer any questions, recommend restaurants & deal with any concerns. Don't miss the local market in Santiago!
