Merida estate description

Set in 12 luscious acres of immaculately landscaped gardens, Hacienda Dzibikak is a luxurious child-friendly holiday home which is situated close to the City of Merida. It has recently been extensively and sympathetically restored by its British owners using a local architect, labour and materials to create a holiday home that includes all the modern amenities.

Each bedroom is fully air-conditioned with the master suites each having a lounge with Sky TV, separate dressing room and large bathroom with his and her toilets and showers, and a stone bath.

Enjoy the completely secluded 20 metre freshwater pool with an adjacent toddler pool, or a quiet afternoon browsing the extensive collection of books in the Library. Four house staff are available to ensure that your holiday is both relaxing and stress- free and for added security, there is a 24 hour watchman.

A separate luxuriously refurbished Old Gate House is also available which sleeps up to 5 people. This can be rented either in conjunction with the Main House or independently.

Enjoy the local town of Uman to sample the local cuisine or experience local life at the daily market, while the Colonial City of Merida is only 40 minutes away.

The archaeological zones of Uxmal and Chichen Itza, and the Celestun Biosphere Reserve are close by, while the beach at Sisal is only 45 minutes away.

                          Hacienda Dzibikak is a private hacienda set in 12 acres of land at the centre of a typical Maya village close to the Colonial City of Merida in the State of Yucatan. It is perfectly situated to explore the archaeological zones of Uxmal and Chichen Itza; the cenotes of Yucatan; the Celestun Biosphere Reserve; and much more.


                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We were enchanted by a short visit to Merida and one of its haciendas in 2003, and purchased Hacienda Dzibikak a year later as an abandoned ruin. We began the painstaking restoration shortly after and eventually moved from our home in London to the Hacienda in 2008 to finish the project and make it our permanent home.

                          Why the Owner Chose Merida:
                          The magical Hacienda offers a unique combination of luxury and privacy, near the Colonial City of Merida. All the rooms have en suite bathrooms, A/C and ceiling fans. The rooms are spacious and have been designed with a British touch.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                          The perfect place to get away from it all and recharge your batteries.
