Merida house description
Maison Azul is located in the historic district of Merida. We are walking distance to almost everything. Restaurants, festivals, shops and museums are just blocks away. Our property was newly renovated this year and was carefully designed to retain the charm of a past era while adding the conveniences of modern living. The main house boasts 17 foot ceilings, antique pasta tiles, 13 foot arches and gorgeous crystal chandeliers throughout. The grand salon has restored 100 year old fresco painting on the walls framed by gorgeous arches overlooking the pool and gardens. 3 of the bedrooms are in the main house along with a beautiful library/ media room with office area for writing, reading and relaxing. The 4th room is in the casita on the opposite side of the pool. The casita includes a bedroom with an extra large bathroom featuring a soaking tub that overlooks the gardens and/or the pool. It also has a private outdoor shower. The pool, courtyard and covered patios are nestled in the center of the property with gardens and the casita toward the rear of the property. Daily wild parrots stop by the large trees surrounding our property for a little bit of the tropics in the middle of the city. Our garden includes orange trees, banana trees, an avocado tree, green and yellow coco palms, as well as a royal palm. The large pool was designed to combine the look of a european fountain with the natural truquoise waters of a cenote. The salt water filtration system keeps the water crystal clear and your skin silky smooth. For the culinary lover in your group, the kitchen has a stainless steel professional stove with plancha or griddle. The kitchen has 3 large windows that overlook the pool, the gardens and the inner courtyard so the cook never feels left out of the activities in the house. With three fountains scattered throughout the property, the atmosphere is set for a romantic and relaxing retreat, the house includes a/cs in all bedrooms,and the library. Ceiling fans in every room combined with the 17 feet ceilings keep the living areas surprisingly cool. The house also includes wifi, cable, 1 flat screen TV, DVD player in the Library Media Room , 1 security cabinet for valuables also included.

ReviewsWrite a review
This home took our week long vacation in Merida to the next level. The pictures do NOT do it justice. It is a beautiful, relaxing place to live. Returning there after a day of exploring the city was a pleasure in it's self. The place is large and even with three couples we were never " on top of each other." The owners (who live there when it's not rented) spared no expense when they remodeled. Everything from the linens to the bath fixtures are first class. If this house is within your budget, stop looking at other places and BOOK IT! You'll be thrilled with it.

About the owner: My husband, Stan, and I spend most of the year in Mexico between our home and vacation rental on Isla Mujeres called Magi Azul and our home in Merida. We spent the past year renovating Maison Azul and are happy to share it with fellow travelers who love the beauty, the architecture and culture that make Merida so magical.
Why the Owner Chose Merida:
This property is for the person who appreciates the romance of a historic home. Great care was taken to keep the charm and elegance of a bygone era. It has a lush garden and a beautiful, pool area, as well as, spacious outdoor covered patios. The house is filled with windows so the rooms are light and airy and the large arches bring the outdoors in.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are close to everything. I walk everywhere. I am a real lover of outdoor markets and I have 3 different ones to chose from. I love walking down the tree lined streets of Paseo Montejo in the mornings. Sometimes my husband and I along with our 13 year old daughter walk down for homemade sorbet at Colon on Paseo Montejo and sit at their side walk cafe in the cool of the evening.
