One of several homes restored and redesigned by a pair of American expats, this vacation home rental in Merida is a uniquely fashionable and respectful recreation of one of the city’s original colonial gems. We like the use of limestone and concrete as a modern, no fuss backdrop to the interesting mix of furnishings and decor. The oasis-like pool and gardens are a special treat for city dwellers!
Located in one the oldest barrios of Merida’s historic colonial center, this vacation home rental in the Yucatan is the brainchild of a pair of expats who discovered Merida in the early 2000’s and have since renovated over a dozen properties throughout the area. The duo’s past in the world of fashion, interior design and fine arts is evident in the restoration as well as the tasteful and simple luxuries of each of their homes.
Infusing the ancient structure with a modern and laid back vibe, the soaring interiors feature burnished plaster walls and polished concrete floors and are awash in natural light from multiple skylights. The open and airy floor plan includes a large living room at the front of the house with another sitting room that opens onto an amazing garden and pool terrace – unusual for a townhouse in these parts. There is a formal dining room as well as an informal dining area adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen with plenty of room for entertaining. The three double bedrooms are at the back of the house which include two guest rooms and the master suite that can accommodate a total of six guests.
As avid collectors of crafts and antiques, the house is filled with an eclectic mix of modern and vintage furnishings with both rustic local pieces and a few Baroque touches thrown in.
Wifi throughout, cellular phone rental available, audio system with CD player. Kitchen and bath essentials. Extra services upon request.
The capital of Mexico’s Yucatan region, Merida is a bustling city of picturesque colonial beauty, cultural riches and ancient Mayan history. The grand boulevard of Paseo de Montejo leads through the town’s historic center with its cobbled stone streets, tree lined plazas and slightly faded 16th century colonial buildings, while the nearby camino real de Campeche leads to the town’s main square with great local markets, cheap eats and a lively neighborhood night life. Currently undergoing a renaissance of sorts, the town is attracting a flow of of expats, artists and a few other bohemian imports from around the world but is steadfastly its own cultural creation.
Located within 40 minutes of the area’s famous beaches, you are also within a short drive to the area’s interesting former sisal manufacturing villages of Sac Chich and Acanceh, and just under an hour from the famous Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, Izamal and the port town of Progresso on the gulf of Mexico. There are several historic convents including Tecoh, Muni, Mani, and Ticul as well as the Mayan Site of Mayapan along the famous convent route to explore, and the Loltun Caves and Uxmal are an hour away as are the many amazing cenotes or secret coves where you can swim in crystal clear water. Cancun is a 3 hour drive.
