Our beautiful colonial home is the perfect place to enjoy a week or several months in Merida. We have thought of every convenience for our home, you won't be disappointed. Our kitchen is well equipped, we have free hi-speed internet, TV, a swimming pool, top quality king size beds and each room is beautifully decorated. This house was featured on House Hunters International in 2012.

Each bedroom on the ground level has a king sized bed and it's own bathroom with shower. Each bedroom has a walk out. One bedroom on the main floor walks out to an interior court yard, the other walks out to the pool. The Master bedroom/family suite occupies the entire 2nd floor. It consists of 2 bedrooms (1 with king bed and 1 with 2 twin beds), a bathroom, a dressing room and it's own private patio.

Our entrance leads into a sitting area/TV room and indoor eating area. Walk further you will enter our kitchen that has 2 walk outs, one to a court yard with BBQ and the other walks out to the pool and a large terrace with outdoor dinning options.

Our roof top terrace has a 360 degree view over Merida. Watch the sunset over Santiago church and watch it come up over the main square. Complete with a wet bar, dumb waiter, seating area, dining area, bathroom, sun deck and birds eye viewing deck.

Beautiful breezes and airflow thru this house, created by the architectural structure when you open the doors to the living spaces, keeps it cool and comfortable. Air conditioning is rarely needed, but available.

Each morning the parrots fly over and each evening they return. Sit on the roof top and see them everyday, sometimes in flocks of hundreds of birds.

Our location is perfect. you are walking distance to all that Merida offers. 1 block away from Santiago market where you can buy fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and meat every day. We have local restaurants close by that will suit every budget.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We fell in love with Merida on our first visit for a friends wedding in 2013. We are passionate about food and wine. We have a small holding on Vancouver Island and raise our own grass fed animals for meat, milk, eggs and grow all our own organic vegetables. We love anything to do with arts and culture. So Merida was just perfect for us and we were thrilled to finally buy our dream vacation home this year when we purchased Casa Chablis. My husbands' work and the animals keep us in Canada for most of the year so we have decided to open Casa Chablis for holiday rentals and hope that we can share just a little of the joy we have found in our holidays in Merida with you.

Why the Owner Chose Barrio de Santiago, Mérida, Yuc., Mexico:
We purchased this property for 2 reasons, one was the location, you can't beat it. The 2nd reason was because the house has really excellent air flow. There is always a cool breeze and we purchased during one of the hottest months of the year. A cool oasis was key for us. We wanted to experience the indoor/outdoor lifestyle Merida has to offer and this house is just perfect for that. It's always comfortable and cool. The constant breeze also helps to keep the mosquitos at bay, a very important consideration in a tropical climate.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Unique benefits of this house: * the constant breezes created by the architectural structure causing a circulatory draft * the fantastic array of patios and courtyards that allow you to follow the sun or shade according to your preference anytime of the day * the absolutely breathtaking views of Merida from the huge and very comfortable 3rd floor patio and 4th floor viewing deck * The sheer size of the house and many patios, courtyards and living areas and the beautiful architectural detail of this Henry Ponce renovation
