Hidden behind a colonial façade in historical Mérida

When you say that something combines the best of two worlds, it isn’t always true – but this home on the Mayan Rivera really does. It’s a contemporary space that feels like a private, luxury villa, but is actually tucked behind the colonial facades in the center of historical Merida, one of Mexico’s most exciting cities.

When its owners were property hunting, they would look through old doorways or windows to see the abandoned plots and overgrown gardens beyond. And in creating this space, that was their inspiration – creating a world within a world, an outdoor space that’s also sheltered, a place to enjoy the city then take refuge in a modern but natural oasis. For the look, they took the stones and woods of Mexico, and added a nod to Mexican brutalism with textured concrete. 

One of the elements that makes the villa so appealing is the fact that it was built around the pool. It’s a home in two parts – you enter through the living and dining space, and cross the garden to reach the bedroom, which is housed in a modernist-style bungalow. And though it’s relatively small, the pool – at 15 meters in length – is delightfully excessive. 

This villa for rent in Mérida is an ideal space for two, perfect for a couple.

Description

Enter this villa for rent in Merida through the two doors of its colonial facade, and you’ll find a large kitchen and a living room that opens into a garden. Cross the garden to the bedroom bungalow at its end. Beside the bedroom, there’s an open bathroom, with views of the garden. Lavatories, pantry and supply closets are concealed to make the space as open as possible.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Groceries for the first day are included, and grocery shopping is available on request. The house has wifi, air conditioning, TV, washing machine, music system, iron and board, and a hairdryer.

Massages can be booked poolside and are provided by a female-owned local company. For couples booking the house as a honeymoon destination, extra flowers, champagne or wine can be arranged, and a private chef is available on request. Maintenance and housekeeping is provided daily, free of charge. There is no space for extra beds.

Airport transfer is available on request. A car is recommended. 

AROUND

Yucatán retains a lot of authenticity, and Mérida is a gem: one of the safest cities in Mexico, with a provincial atmosphere and cosmopolitan flair. For history buffs, it’s a treasure trove made up of a colonial center, archeological sites, and haciendas. The cathedral square and the colorful Lucas de Gálvez Market are both within walking distance of the house. 

Morning tacos as well as the best local restaurants are all found on easy walks, but if you’d prefer to eat at home, there are many little convenience stores nearby, as well as the market.

Adventurers will love the many cenotes (sunken lakes in which you can swim), kayaking in the mangroves, or going horseback riding on the beach. Meanwhile, wildlife lovers should head for the reserve at Celestún, especially in flamingo season, from November through February.

Farther afield, visit the ancient Mayan city of Uxmal (85km, or 1h 10 mins by car), and the lovely Sisal beach, long extensions of dunes and mangroves along a very peaceful shore (70km, or 1h by car). Progreso is the nearest coastal town (45 minutes). 

LOCATION

Mérida, Yucatan, Mexico. Nearest airports: Mérida International Airport (MID): 6km (10 mins by taxi), Cancún International Airport (CUN): 300km.

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Mérida is warm all year round. November to April has mild and spring-like weather. And the absolute best time to visit Mérida is around 1st November for the Día de los Muertos festivities. May to July are hot and humid months so a great time to make the most of the pool.
