  • Bettye's house was perfect for our stay, and she is a wonderful host. We are also airbnb hosts, and we were impressed with everything. The house was renovated by an architect, and everything is beautiful, from the hand-made doors to the tile floors. The beds are comfy, there are lots of good quality towels, and the kitchen is fully equipped for cooking if you wish. We were able to easily get to the center of town easily by walking or taking a taxi or bus. On our first morning Bettye brought us some fresh orange juice, yogurt and bread. Totally unexpected but nice! And she took the time to chat and answer our many questions, including advice for Americans considering moving to Mexico. You couldn't ask for a better place to stay in Merida.

My husband and I live in Merida Mexico where we have both a duplex apartment and a large vacation home. We enjoy sharing our home with visitors and will be happy to introduce you to all that Merida has to offer. I'm still working on my Spanish skills but we have a wonderful local property manager who can assist with everything from tours to taxis when needed! Family is scattered all over so I like to travel...will also consider house swaps with our Merida properties.David is a professional photographer interested in capturing the many images of Mexico. I work with sustainable landscape design and enjoy visiting gardens wherever we may travel. We look forward to meeting hosts and welcoming guests throughout our airbnb network.
