Overview

Merida House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Library, Large Pool, Gardens And 3 Fountains,

Maison Azul is located in the historic district of Merida. We are walking distance to almost everything. Restaurants, festivals, shops and museums are just blocks away. Our property was newly renovated this year and was carefully designed to retain the charm of a past era while adding the conveniences of modern living. The main house boasts 17 foot ceilings, antique pasta tiles, 13 foot arches and gorgeous crystal chandeliers throughout. The grand salon has restored 100 year old fresco painting on the walls framed by gorgeous arches overlooking the pool and gardens. 3 of the bedrooms are in the main house along with a beautiful library/ media room with office area for writing, reading and relaxing. The 4th room is in the casita on the opposite side of the pool. The casita includes a bedroom with an extra large bathroom featuring a soaking tub that overlooks the gardens and/or the pool. It also has a private outdoor shower. The pool, courtyard and covered patios are nestled in the center of the property with gardens and the casita toward the rear of the property. Daily wild parrots stop by the large trees surrounding our property for a little bit of the tropics in the middle of the city. Our garden includes orange trees, banana trees, an avocado tree, green and yellow coco palms, as well as a royal palm. The large pool was designed to combine the look of a european fountain with the natural truquoise waters of a cenote. The salt water filtration system keeps the water crystal clear and your skin silky smooth. For the culinary lover in your group, the kitchen has a stainless steel professional stove with plancha or griddle. The kitchen has 3 large windows that overlook the pool, the gardens and the inner courtyard so the cook never feels left out of the activities in the house.

About Sherry Fauscett

My husband, Stan, and I spend most of the year in Mexico between our home and vacation rental on Isla Mujeres called Magi Azul and our home in Merida. We spent the past year renovating Maison Azul and are happy to share it with fellow travelers who love the beauty, the architecture and culture that make Merida so magical.

Sherry Fauscett purchased this house in 2012

Why Sherry Fauscett chose Merida

This property is for the person who appreciates the romance of a historic home. Great care was taken to keep the charm and elegance of a bygone era. It has a lush garden and a beautiful, pool area, as well as, spacious outdoor covered patios. The house is filled with windows so the rooms are light and airy and the large arches bring the outdoors in.

What makes this house unique

We are close to everything. I walk everywhere. I am a real lover of outdoor markets and I have 3 different ones to chose from. I love walking down the tree lined streets of Paseo Montejo in the mornings. Sometimes my husband and I along with our 13 year old daughter walk down for homemade sorbet at Colon on Paseo Montejo and sit at their side walk cafe in the cool of the evening.

Staying at Maison Azul

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful home in the center of Merida. Tall ceilings and beautiful tiled floors are complimented with vintage armoires and seating. You can lounge in comfy couches in the library which is full of books including ones on Mexican design and cooking.

Each room in the main house centers around the entry way and leads out to a lush interior courtyard. There is a covered porch where my family and I spent most of our time. Throughout the exterior, lights and fountains bring the space alive in the evenings. The well appointed kitchen has everything you need for making great meals. Bottled water and coffee maker are welcome amenities and the juicer led to some fine margaritas.

Victoria comes into clean several days a week. Not sure we needed her there quite so often but she was very friendly.

We ate at Apoala just down the street which was excellent. The owner supplied us with several emails giving us tips on places to eat, what fiestas were happening when...Really helpful for first time visitors like us. I would highly recommend Maison Azul to fellow visitors.

Maison Azul is a jewel!

  • 5 of 5
Our family highly recommends Maison Azul for it is a sacred space with beautifully appointed rooms for indoor and outdoor living. The pool and the casita provide a unique experience that fitted our family well. I can’t think of a prettier, better maintained property. The responsive owners know what travelers expect these days…from the wifi to the thirst towels, etc. Along with answering every one of our questions the owners recommended Lawson tours which led us to Uzmal ruins one day and a Mayan cooking experience the next. Both memorable! We love Merida and our walks to Centro and Santa Anna. Too many restaurants and activities in the area to name! Choose Maison Azul and you will feel a part of Merida’s fabric and not just a tourist.

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house really is spectacular, it is actually even better than it looks in the photos! Every room has been tastefully renovated with lots of lovely details. Spotlessly clean, big comfy beds, beautiful bathrooms and a fabulous refreshing pool. Sherry was super helpful too. Cannot recommend this property enough, we had a really nice time and would go back tomorrow if we could. Thank you Sherry.

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
This home took our week long vacation in Merida to the next level. The pictures do NOT do it justice. It is a beautiful, relaxing place to live. Returning there after a day of exploring the city was a pleasure in it's self. The place is large and even with three couples we were never " on top of each other." The owners (who live there when it's not rented) spared no expense when they remodeled. Everything from the linens to the bath fixtures are first class. If this house is within your budget, stop looking at other places and BOOK IT! You'll be thrilled with it.

Maison Azul is located in the historic district of Merida known as el Centro. Located 3 to 7 blocks from the popular Plaza Grande, Santa Lucia, and Santa Ana Parks, Maison Azul is the perfect retreat after a busy day of sight seeing. Whether you want to lounge in the pool, read in the library, or just doze in a hammock beneath our orange trees, Maison Azul is an oasis in the heart of the city. We are conveniently located walking distance to the famous Paseo Montejo, as well as, markets, festivals, museums, shops and restaurants. So there is always plenty to do.
