I came to live in the Yucatan in 2001 from New York City. I had an Antique and Home Furnishing store on Broome Street in Soho called Naturemorte. I lived a decade in Paris before NY where I worked in fashion and decorating. It was never my intention to live in Yucatan full time but I discovered a passion for renovating abandoned houses. A chance meeting with David Keeps of Travel+Leisure gave me the idea of renting some houses to tourists. At the time I started Urbano Rentals there were no Airbnb or Trip Advisor and few nice hotels.
So here I am in Merida twenty years later and it keeps getting better and better. This blog is for our guests and friends. Please follow us on Facebook & Pinterest & Instagram.
