Merida cottage description

Find your own paradise just a few minutes from Merida, Yucatan, Mexico. Hidden Paradise Casita is
surrounded by bearing fruit trees: mango, avocado, grapefruit, and several kinds of bananas. Pick what
you want and eat fresh fruit right off the tree!

Go swimming in the private swimming pool, which is nestled in a tropical garden and surrounded by a
safety fence. The pool is kidney-shaped, 22 feet long by 14 feet wide. One half is only three feet deep
– perfect for children. The other half is designed for grown-ups and has a maximum depth of 6 feet.
The pool features in-water benches to sit on and enjoy a beer or drink. If you’d rather read or sunbathe,
lounge chairs, benches, and a swing are provided for your use – AND we can help you stock the tiki bar
and its refrigerator with beer, wine, soft drinks or whatever you choose.

The home itself consists of a great room (kitchen, dining, and living area), sleeping nook, private
bedroom, and bathroom. There is also a private patio with a gas barbecue grill. The kitchen is decorated
with colorful Talavera tiles, and features everything you need to cook delicious meals: appliances,
silverware, dishes, toaster, microwave, refrigerator, blender, and coffee maker. The living area includes
satellite TV (42 –inch flat screen) which picks up both English and Spanish stations and a home theater
system. The bedroom has a king-size bed. After a busy day in the tropical sunshine, King size bed in bedroom,single bed just outside of bedroom and pull out sofa in the livingroom.

The bathroom is steps from both the main bedroom and from the sleeping nook. The shower is tiled
with Talavera tiles, and the sink and its base are marble.

We are right next door and happy to provide you with any information or assistance we can to
make your stay the best it can be. We have lived in this area for many years and can give you
recommendations for day trips, restaurants, and things to do in Merida. We will even provide you with
a personal cellphone to use while you are our guest.

We have found that many people are concerned about security. Our place is safe, private and secure,
surrounded by a solid wall with access through an electric gate.

Housekeeping service is included every other day. In the monthly rent it is not included.It is available by request for a very reasonable charge.Laundry:we have a washing machine in the bathroom. Our garden and pool cleaned and maintained daily.

We look forward to your visit to Hidden Paradise!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: My name is Zoltan. I was born and raised in Hungary and later moved to Key West, Florida, in the United States. Not too long after my move, I met a beautiful Mexican girl named Alicia. It was her dream to move back to Mexico, which we did. We have since married and have two Mexican-Hungarian children: Lilu, age 3, and Dominik, age 15 months. Shortly after we moved, I built our home, and later, this beautiful cottage – Hidden Paradise. Alicia and I have a small building contracting business specializing in building and renovating homes on the beaches near Merida. Merida itself is a colonial city established by the Spanish. Nowadays, it is also a modern city but it still honors its colonial heritage. We have found this to be the perfect place to raise our little family. We moved here not knowing what was in store for us – and we found paradise. We hope you will visit us and find paradise too. By the way, both of us are fluent in English. I am fluent in Hungarian and Alicia is fluent in Spanish.

                          Why the Owner Chose Merida:
                          Take a side trip to Merida from your visit to Cancun. We are on the Cancun-Merida road. In addition, Hidden Paradise is near the colonial city of Merida, Chichen Itza and other archeological sites, Yucatecan swimming holes called cenotes, and all the businesses you need for everyday life – supermarkets, the airport – even Walmart!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Walking distance to a large hacienda which serves gourmet Yucatecan food Live near an authentic Mexican village Airport pick up and drop off available at extra charge
