Hi, I'm Pamela!

Love to renovate !! When renovating / redesigning a space I strive for a sort of fluid openness which incorporates most elements of the basic structure but at the same time somehow simplifies the space. Strive to "repurpose" whenever possible. I continually look for ways to "work with what I have" when on a project. Using unique materials that are made to withstand the test of time are also big on my list. Open things up and make them more livable. Have worked on many conversion projects in NYC. This was my first project in Mexico accomplished with good friend and great architect Tim Koelle!

Here is my property:

Great place for 4 people in Merida

“ Excellent ”
March 27, 2012
Our family of 7 stayed in this house in Merida. The location was quite convenient (VERY close to bus stop & taxis readily available). The outside did not look very appealing, but the inside was nicely and simply decorated and unique. The house had everything you'd need...fridge with plenty of pots/pans/cups/utensils...even for a big crowd like ours...and a gas cooktop, coffee maker, toaster, etc. And everyone loved the pool to cool off after a hot day. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that the front bedroom (and the rest of the front part of the property) is not air conditioned and the bed in that part doesn't have a mosquito net. It got very warm in that part of the house in the afternoon/evening, like the walls were radiating heat. The kitchen was also warm for preparing meals, but we did retreat to the room at the back of the property with the air conditioning. During the hot months, I would recommend parties of 4 people max so you can sleep in air conditioning. But other than that, we loved being in Merida close to everything. And there's a great little walk up place to eat about a block away that makes AMAZING food for cheap. There's also a good, honest laundry place (lavanderia) right next door. Bring in clothes in the morning and they're washed, dried and folded by the evening. If you're looking for a less touristy place to spend the night in Merida, but still be close to the city in a safe area, this is a great place. Oh, and be on the lookout for the guys that ride around with baked goods. They're delicious!
