About Steve Cox
I am originally from Perú, but I am an American citizen currently living between Florida and Merida. My husband Wayne and I spent a week vacationing in the Yucatan in 2009 and bought a property at the beach in Progreso on our last day. We travel extensively, but felt immediately at home in the Yucatan, and met the most fantastic people here. We are planning to make Merida our permanent home in a couple of years, in the mid time we'd love to share our house and experiences with other adventurous travelers.
Steve Cox purchased this House in 2013
Why Steve Cox chose Centro
We were told the original owners met as children playing in the neighborhood, and after marrying built this house where they started a family and hosted great parties.
What makes this House unique
We really like the style of the house which is a mix of Art Deco and Colonial architecture .

Careful with this Guy!!!!
Its been nearly 2 months since I and I still have not received back my very large safety dollar deposit. I sent an email concerning this and received an email back stating it would take "A few Days" after they discount energy! When I gave the keys back to this guy I asked him to his face if their would be any problem with my deposit to which he said "NOTHING AT ALL" and now I want to know where is my security deposit? Careful with renting this property!!!
Unfortunately as with almost all rental homes in Mérida electricity usage is not included in the price of the rental. This is explained on the listing and at checkout.
I calculate the usage by taking a photo upon check in and check out and take my readings to CFE, the Federal electricity commission, and they give me a cost in pesos of the usage.
If used responsibly, not running A/C's while not in the house, the usage amount is reasonable. In this case the amount used according to CFE was over $10,000 pesos for the time period rented.
Wonderful stay in Merida
This was our first time renting a house during an extended vacation. It was a wonderful experience. The house was well maintained and convenient to everything we needed. We did not rent a car. We used public transportation with great ease.
Our stay was enhanced by Steve and Ruby, the management team. Their knowledge of Merida was very helpful. They advised about local markets, bus routes and popular sites we might have overlooked.
They welcomed us on our first night with a basket of fruit and visited once a week during our 50 day vacation. Any concerns were addressed immediately.
We had a great time!!! The house, people of Merida and Steve and Ruby made our time there memorable and exceptional.
We loved the location and high quality amenities of this beautiful home in Merida. We did not cook anything but breakfast though the kitchen is about as well stocked as anything we've seen. The pool area and patio are quiet, very clean and relaxing. Photos do not do this home justice. You have to see it to believe it. Steve was very accommodating about anything we needed. Stay could not have been better. We would stay here again and recommend it highly.
Thank you Bob for the kind words. Also thank you for being such considerate guests in our property.
Hope to see you back next year!!!
Wonderful place to see a beautiful city
This house is a beautiful house in a safe neighborhood, and is convenient to the Paseo Montejo. The two best features for us was a lovely pool and a kitchen with a professional stove. We were able to have a few friends over and cook a magnificent dinner for them with my friend who is professional chef. I couldn't recommend this place higher.
A beautiful oasis in Merida
We stayed for the month of February. Our beautiful colonial in Garcia Gineres was everything we had hoped for.
When we arrived, we were welcomed with a huge basket of fruit and a bottle of wine.
It was our oasis in the city. Close to the Paseo de Montejo and all of the great restaurants.
We walked everywhere. Our house was very clean and was more beautiful than shown on the site.
Many thanks to our property managers, Ruby and Steve, who made us feel very welcome and treated us
like old friends. They provided us with lots of good information about things to see and do in Merida.
The house was well appointed and there were no issues with the hi-speed internet or satellite tv. The off-street
parking is a real bonus in the city.
All of our guests, who came to visit, walked through the front door and their mouths dropped open with how
beautiful the home is.
This is a really great home, in a great location. The best part was the great property managers, Ruby and Steve, and
the wonderful service they offered. Many thanks.
Merida is a modern, cosmopolitan city with museums, art galleries, restaurants, shops and boutiques. A major center of commerce, Merida Yucatan is considered the crossroads of the region and one of the most important places to experience the Mayan heritage.
