More details:

Explore Merida and the Yucatan from this sophisticated and contemporary environment - it is truly a luxury.

64 is your own private boutique space - and has been accessorized and furnished accordingly. There is a spectacular pool suite with a movable glass wall, as well as an exceptional master suite with 20 ft high beamed ceilings and reading loft, both with en-suite bathrooms.

This is a light-filled property in the day, and well thought out night-lighting makes for a dramatic evening environment. You can enjoy the sun pool-side, or on the large upper terrace, or enjoy the warmth in the shade in either of two covered terraces.

The well appointed, open-concept kitchen is set up for cooking and opens to the outdoor terrace for al fresco dining and lounging.

For your technology fix there's a flat screen TV and DVD player in the upstairs master (including cable and NETFLIX), wifi internet throughout the house, stereo receiver and cd player in the kitchen with BOSE speakers in the dining room and on the covered patio. The downstairs master has a compact cd player.

Our local english/spanish speaking property manager will be happy to assist renters with arrangements (cars, tours, chef, extra cleaning, airport transfers) and can also arrange to have groceries waiting on your arrival.

64 is a unique balance of colonial and modern architecture located in the UNESCO-protected historic centre (Centro Historico) of Merida, and is ideally situated just four blocks from Parque Santa Lucia and from the main square.

The architect has retained the Colonial facade, and created a modern and contemporary interior. The tilework is an example of how the architect has created a modern property which still references its historical and contextual background - the tilework on the living room and master suite floors, and the kitchen backsplash is a traditional Yucatecan design which has been modified and updated so that it is a simpler two-tone design.

Henry Ponce won the Architectural Digest Award for 'Icons of Design' for Casa 64. Henry is well-known for his ability in blending colonial and contemporary styles. The video attached to this listing shows the flow of the house (note the furniture has changed since this video was shot).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: As a couple of Canadians edging toward the dream of retirement, we're always looking for a great warm place in the winter to get away from our busy lives. We love great architecture, design, art and comfortable spaces where we can relax and entertain friends/family.

Why the Owner Chose Centro, Mérida, Yuc., Mexico:
Merida is authentic Mexico - and this house is at the center of it all. We get to Merida as often as we can and wanted an easy, spectacular rental property we could call our own. This house certainly fits the bill. We bought the house in early 2012. The former owners had fantastic taste and we were lucky to keep the best of their furniture. We've updated the living room with new furniture and with a personal love of cooking, fitted out the kitchen fit for a chef.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The architect, Henry Ponce delivers on the design details. A perfect balance of old colonial and contemporary features blends to an open, airy concept that works! Many houses of Merida are dark but Casa 64 offers open spaces with wide open doors (spare bedroom with a glass wall that completely opens beside the pool!) and multiple covered and uncovered patios. The two king beds are the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in (I travel a ton and know good/bad beds), the bedrooms are spacious and ensuite are beautifully appointed. The house is only four blocks from Plaza Grande, Merida's central and largest square. The same distance from Parc Santa Lucia. A couple blocks further and you find yourself in the main market. Its central location means you absolutely don't need a car for your vacation....and yet there is parking right next door if you have a rental car arranged to see the many sites in the surrounding area (cenotes, Mayan ruins, Tulum, Uxmal, Chelum, Progreso...).
