Casa de Maquinas

Hacienda Sac Chich, Outside Merida

Sleeps 13 | 6 Bedroooms | 5 Bathrooms

$975 - $1,650 /night

Very near the Mayan village of Sac Chich in the Yucatan Peninsula, you’ll find a hidden world of luxury and relaxation in Casa de Maquinas. This stunning vacation rental rests on the idyllic grounds of Hacienda Sac Chich, enclosed by walls original to the property. In the breathtaking countryside a half-hour from Merida, iron gates open to Casa de Maquinas and its surrounding greenery of exotic palm trees, bushy bamboo, tropical plants and fruit trees. This grand six-bedroom, five-bath local luxury accommodation will quiet your soul and connect you to the natural beauty of Mexico.

Unique from any other accommodation, this vacation rental boasts limestone buildings, an original water tower and an 85-foot chimney. Remaining iron wheels and massive wood beams provide a glimpse of what life was like when the buildings were first constructed. Lovingly restored by renowned Mexican architect Salvador Reyes Rios and his partner/wife Josefina Larrain, the property reveals fascinating Mayan culture and history while offering every modern comfort. No detail is overlooked: colorful handcrafted tile, wrought-iron light fixtures and even locally produced furniture designed by Salvador.

Casa Vieja, one of the main buildings, houses a colonial-style, gourmet kitchen, a beautiful living room, two bedrooms appointed with four-poster king beds and a loft bedroom with two beds. The baths are simple and elegantly appointed. The building opposite of Casa Vieja is named Casa Nueva. With a dramatic entrance and towering 26-foot ceilings, this casa embodies three bedrooms and three bathrooms, all with air-conditioning and fans. The magical master suite includes a sunken living space, as well as an outside seating area and refreshing plunge pool.

A stacked-stone wall frames Casa Maquina’s grounds, which are nothing short of a fairytale. The dramatically lit Loggia, an open-air living space with dining pavilion, is surrounded by water ponds filled with lilies and fish. Follow the unique outdoor spiral staircase to a laid-back rooftop lounge where you can enjoy a margarita and star gaze. Showcasing an intricate shell-mosaic ceiling, an enchanting tunnel leads to a 40-foot swimming pool, a refreshing refuge from the warm Yucatan sun after a game of bocce ball. The dreamlike gardens of this Yucatan Peninsula villa offer many private spots to steal away with a good book among the singing birds and fragrant flowers, and the fireflies that dance above the lawn in the evenings will fascinate adults and children alike.
