About the property

Full amenities, pool and all mod cons, including aircon and everything you need!

FREE Beer and all you need for your first breakfast is available for you on arrival and a FREE bottle of wine for stays of 7 nights or more! Consistently rated 5 stars! KID friendly. This house is part of your experience and a great place to chill. The blue skies of the Yucatan await!

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, 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!

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.
