Merida house description

Casa Sisal is located in the Mayan village of Sac Chich, 35 minutes from the city of Merida, but worlds away. Relax in the privacy of this contemporary home. Casa Sisal is adjacent to Hacienda Sac Chich, Casa de Maquinas ( VRBO # 202866) .

Surrounded by water lily reflecting ponds and a large green lawn this 2000 square foot home is built within the 2 acre henequen drying fields of the hacienda and is enclosed by the haciendas original 10-foot wall, creating its own private world.

Casa Sisal has 2 BEDROOMS (ONE KING AND TWO QUEENS), 2 BATHS, FULL KITCHEN, LIVING AREA AND DINING FOR 8. Walk out of the living area on one side you'll find a patio with a 30 foot lily pond and out the other side is a beautiful 3-sided infinity edge SWIMMING POOL, palapa and patio.

The sunken living room has a large couch, fireplace, flat screen monitor for viewing DVD’s and the home is wired for sound and i-pod ready. This home is constructed of hard woods, limestone and plaster polished to a sleek finish by the ancient Mayan technique called chukum. EACH WINDOW IS SCREENED, EVERY ROOM HAS FANS AND THE HOUSE IS FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED. The ceiling and door heights are 10 feet giving every room a sense of great space. The house is lit very dramatically and on the lawn there are 2 rows of 9 royal palms that at night seem to be suspended in space.

The great lawn in front of the house is 2 acres and is a perfect place for playing frisbee, soccer or volleyball. The sky at night can be viewed while lounging on the chaise lounge by the pool or in the back or even while dining inside the house. Designed to experience the beauty of the Yucatan light and sky you will find Casa Sisal a respite from it all.

Casa Sisal is just outside of the town Acanceh, 10 minutes from the Cancun/Merida highway 180 where you can drive to Chichen Itza ( 45 minutes), Izamal (40 minutes), Progresso (45 minutes) and is exactly a 3 hour drive to Cancun. We are 5 minutes from the Convent Route which is the road to not only many of the Convents (Tecoh, Muni, Mani, Ticul) but the Mayan Site of Mayapan( 20 Min), Loltun Caves ( 1 hour). Uxmal is also 1 hour away. We are also close to many cenotes where you can swim in crystal clear water . The Cuzama cenotes are 25 minutes away.

This house shares the private entrance to the Hacienda Sac Chich ( VRBO # 202866) and has its own winding driveway that leads to a private entrance and parking area.

There is a housekeeping staff to wash dishes, do laundry, clean daily and change linens on beds every three days.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: Being frequent visitors to the Pacific beaches and colonial central Mexico since the 70's we read about the restored haciendas of the Yucatan. In 2001 we went on the first of many "hacienda hopping" trips to the Yucatan. The grandeur, architectural scale, historical and economic relevance and process of restoration of these haciendas intrigued us and soon we were researching haciendas for sale on the internet. It wasn't until we rented a Hacienda for my 50th Birthday in 2003 that we experienced a sense of ownership while entertaining friends and family there. On that trip we toured hacienda Sac Chich, shortly thereafter made an offer and 5 months later it was ours. Sac Chich was the first and only hacienda we looked at for sale. In 2006 we purchased the drying field lands and in 2008 we began construction on Casa Sisal. This is Sac Chich 2010 with architecture in a modern vernacular. Casa Sisal opens itself up to the magnificent sky and light of the Yucatan. It is comfortable, magical and serene. We always knew we would someday have a home in Mexico, but always envisioned the Pacific coast or colonial interior. The Yucatan became the pure isolated uncomplicated Mexico that we remembered from travels 30 years ago.

              Why the Owner Chose Merida:
              Being at Sac Chich is our opportunity to stop. We are surrounded by such tropical lushness and architectural grandness that sometimes you find yourself just sitting taking it all in. The simple sounds of the village children playing or a dog barking mingles with the bamboo swaying and clacking in the wind or the amazing birds that sing all day. We relax and enjoy the people we are with, swim, read a book,nap in a hammock, bird watch, play pool games, volleyball,frisbee,card games, charades,enjoy music, dine by candlelight. We are always hopping in the car to explore and discover. We go to Mayan ruins, cenotes to snorkel and swim, nearby haciendas to just see or relax and have lunch or dinner on their patios, go to the beach and eat seafood in Progresso or Celestun, visit Merida for tacos at our favorite taco stands, visit the early weekend market downtown Merida or enjoy one of the many cultural events that take place all week long there. Sometimes we just get in the car and drive and head down a road towards a village we have never been and stop in a tortilleria to get a stack of fresh tortillas. We always find smiling and curious Mayan people, giggling children and if we're lucky there is a tienda next door with very cold Mexican Coke in a glass bottle for us to enjoy! It is the simple pleasures of being at the hacienda that gives us the greatest joy!
