About The Owner

With retirement on the horizon I wanted a warm getaway to escape the Canadian winters. This part of the world has always fascinated me.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Centro

Perfectly located, spacious, clean home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this lovely home. It is so perfectly located, just around the corner from Santa Lucia Park, which is the best spot for dinners. Also just a quick walk to town, shopping, fabulous coffee shops. House is beautiful and clean. Two rooms on separate floors so very private and spacious. But above all, the owner AND house managers were so helpful and quick to respond pre-arrival and during our stay with any questions, help getting airport rides, bringing an extra key, which is awesome when you're staying somewhere new and unfamiliar.

Would definitely recommend this home to friends.

Gorgeous home, great location

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous house. Perfect location in Centro and close to all of the action but still on a quiet block. The house itself has everything you could need and both bedrooms offer lots of privacy. The pool was so cool and refreshing and the outdoor space was perfect. We had a couple of hiccups with A/C and everything was taken care of quickly and easily. Highly recommend this home for your next visit to Merida.

Amazing Home with great location

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home that was nicely remodeled. The home is very private as has two master suites each on different floors. The 2nd floor is extremely private with two double balconies one facing the pool and other facing the street. The house is fully stack all kinds of items from wine opener to a cooler to take the beach. To finalize the staff from the owner is excellent as we have an issue with their front door key, the property manager showed up within less than 2 hours with a replacement. Truly a great home to spend with the family or friends.

A perfect location and excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful property. Just steps from all the action in Merida, we were able to enjoy this delightful city. The staff were great - very attentive to our questions and concerns. The property is even more beautiful than the photos suggest. We hope to return soon. Thanks for a fantastic vacation experience!

Great time in Merida

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Tim's property in Merida, MX from Nov. 2/2016 until December 10/2016 and loved our stay. The property is ideally situated in central Merida within walking distance of all the essential cultural activities/events and there are plenty to take in. Fantastic restaurants with some of the best eating we've experienced in Mexico. Super affordable and great value for your dollar. Guide provided by the owner at the property listing some great food choices and we also took advantage of on line reviews to make sure we didn't miss any of the top restaurants in Merida. Tim's property exceeded our expectations. The property is very nicely furnished, A/C that worked effectively when needed, comfy beds and linens, Dish network available so I didn't miss my NFL games, great kitchen with all the creature comforts to cook a great meal at home, attentive cleaning staff and pool service.

Great time in Merida and Great property that I highly recommend.

Thanks Tim

Modern home, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous property full of beautiful artwork and architectural details. The location couldn't be better, right around the corner from Santa Lucia park where there is a lot of evening entertainment and a neighbourhood full of cool cafes, bakeries and restaurants. There are three deck areas within the house, each with a variety of seating options, and the stupendous walls make for a very safe-feeling environment. The house is very comfortable, beautifully furnished and has better than usual extras such as a Melita coffee brewer, henckel knives and a great gas stove. A wonderful choice for one or two couples wanting to be in the historical centre and to explore Merida.
