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.When we came upon Bella Lucia, it was such a gem of a house we could not pass it up. We are happy to share it with fellow travelers who love the beauty, the architecture and culture that make Merida so magical.

What makes this house unique
The house has a deep Roman plunge pool that has a wonderful polished marble water wall fountain. You can enjoy the dramatic accent lighting and the sound of the fountain and pool as you dine. The pool flows right up to edge of one side of the dining room. On the other side of the dining room is the garden patio with another gorgeous fountain and water feature that flows almost the whole length of the patio into the pool. The patio and pool form an L shape that wraps around the house so that most of the rooms have beautiful garden views. Also for more sun and outdoor living the whole roof top is the perfect area to entertain. It includes a grass covered hammock pavilion with built in chaises, a beautifully designed builtin grilling station, a covered tejaban patio with a 1/2 bath, and several pretty built in planters. The house is centrally located to the most desirable tourist areas. Restaurants, parks, and shopping are just steps away.
