About our home

Our new contemporary home is located a few minutes north of Merida, Yucatan. Light-filled spaces filled with modern, eclectic furniture and art provide a sense of relaxation and flow. Downstairs, the living, dining, library and kitchen are well laid out with views to the front/back garden and pool. Upstairs, two bedrooms with full baths offer comfort and style. The home is located in the traditional Mexican village of Conkal, full of colourful homes, tiendas (shops) and restaurants. Within an hour, there are multiple ancient Mayan archeological sites to visit. Sunny, pristine beaches and villages on the Gulf of Mexico are a 25 minute drive away from our home.

We are open to ideas regarding house swaps! In terms of dates and length, we're quite open from May 2020 until September 2020, so a swap from several weeks to a month or more is possible. Also, we have two fabulous dogs that are best left at home. Ideally, we would also do a pet sitting exchange at the same time! If that doesn't work, we can board them while we are away.

Where is it?


We're located in a picturesque traditional Mexican village, Conkal, just a few minutes outside of Merida. Our neighbourhood is friendly and safe, with several shops and cafes within a few minutes walking distance. Merida is a world class city of about 1 million people with fine architecture, innovative restaurants, an active nightlife, museums, parks and festivals. Much to see and do! Outside of the city, we are about 25 minutes to several quality beaches and coastal towns, and surrounded by multiple ancient Mayan archeological sites.
