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.

                    Casa Sisal is a vacationer's dream! Peace, relaxation, splendor, and luxury is what you will find if you stay here. I loved lounging in the pool and looking out on the beautiful property and Mayan architecture. Perfect for a family or couple looking for a week away from the stresses of life. My only complaint is that we didn't stay longer!

                    We just came back from a week at casa sisal. It was a dream! beautiful home and pool in those hot days were wonderful! very peaceful and was able to listen to all the birds throughout the day. By far the best place we have ever stayed! We even had a chance to watch thousands of lightning bugs in the grass at night :) Staff was there everyday to make us coffee or whatever we needed. So friendly and sweet :) felt very very safe the entire trip. Merida and izamal are a must see! I would rent a car so you can get around easy. Our first time to Mexico was one of the best vacations we've had at casa sisal :)

                    We spent a week celebrating Christmas in this stunning home. The photos really show the beauty of the home but experiencing the surrounding views and the exquisite lighting is truly magical. We were lucky enough to meet the owner who was very gracious. The staff was very kind and accommodating. I highly recommend this enchanting home.

                    The house's pictures attracted us and when we arrived at Casa Sisal, what a shock! It was even better! The combination of the luxuriant nature, the old walls around, the grass so green and this beautiful design house was magic! Everything in the casa and outdoor was well thought and it was great to live there! The caretakers were helpful and so kind, they made our stay easier. Casa Sisal isn't so far from Merida,and it's very pleasant to come back home, after walking in this crowded town, to enjoy the peace of the house. the country around is beautiful, with many old deserted sisal factories to see and cenotes to go swimming.. Our stay in Casa Sisal was a fantastic experience!!!! We'll come back! Sure!

                    We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Sisal a couple of weeks ago. The house is absolutely stunning and very comfortable with all you could want. Only wish we had stayed longer than 3 nights..!

                    Sometimes pictures make things look better than they are in reality (working myself in marketing, have seen this dozens of times). But even the pictures of Casa Sisal are extremely beautiful they don't compare with the reality of being there, nothing but silence, "private" garden larger than a football field just for you and the home made Yucatecan food from the lovely ladies of the Hacienda Sac Chich staff. I still wonder why people would prefer a five star hotel to a private residence? Probably because they haven't experience this. Great for a romantic scape or to enjoy your family by the pool. Can't wait to go back again to Casa Sisal.

                    Cyndy, we are back in Minnesota from our wonderful stay at your property. You and your husband have really created a special place there. I see what you mean, once you arrive you really never want to leave. Being in Real Estate I have the luxury of seeing some amazing properties, but yours is one of a kind. I can tell you we stayed at a fairly high end resort in Playa del carmen costing twice as much a day and the finishes in your place surpassed the hotel by far.

                    My wife and I flew into Cancun from Milwaukee. After meeting our son, his wife, and their thirteen month old son at the airport (they flew in from New York City), we rented a car. The three hour drive via the toll road was pleasant and there was only light traffic. We stopped at a toll road service area for cappuccino and a rest room break. The coffee shop was called "Italian Coffee" and was similar to Starbucks. Casa Sisal is stunning! The pictures and owner's description are very detailed and accurate. Having said that, it was even nicer in person than we expected. We swam in the pool every day and enjoyed the two acre yard for Frisbee, etc. The staff was very helpful. We arrived to chips and homemade salsa as well as freshly baked banana bread. The house is large and well equipped. Everything that we needed was there for us. They even provided a "porta-play" type crib for the baby. The house served as a unique place to hang out as well as a base for nearby sights and activities. Within a 30 to 60 minute drive there are many Mayan ruins, cenotes, haciendas, convents and historic towns. We went to Merida (we liked Paseo Montejo which is a beautiful boulevard with old mansions); Cuzama Cenote (sadly we only had time to see and swim in one of the three cenotes there); the seaside town of Progreso (disappointing compared to Playa Del Carmen or Tulum); the nearby Hacienda Teya (we had a very nice lunch). We were only able to stay 3 nights at Casa Sisal and wish we could have stayed longer.

                  Location

                  This owner has opted not to share the exact location of their property.

                   

                  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!
