About Stan & 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.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.

Why Stan & Sherry Fauscett chose Merida

If you are a person where style matters, you will love Bella Lucia. Attention to detail is displayed in everything from the stunning architecture and finish work to the antique furnishings that adorn the house. Featured on the Merida homes tour, Bella Lucia,

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.

Bella Lucia is centrally located and walking distance to most of the favourite historic destinations in Merida.

2 blocks from the house is the romantic Parque Santa Lucia

Thursdays nights enjoy live music and dining on the park at 8pm. Sunday mornings buy antique trinkets and local handicrafts from native artisans. Be sure to sample some local artisan chocolate at the chocolate shop tucked in the corner of the park. Skirted by restaurants and quaint shops, Parque Santa Lucia is known as the parque of romance!

2 blocks from the beginning of the famous Paseo Montejo

This picturesque avenue with it's European flavor and wide shaded sidewalks is the perfect place for an evening or morning stroll. We often walk to El Colon side walk cafe for their famous homemade sorbets. Hennesey's Irish Pub is a favourite of local foreigners for drinks or excellent food.

3 blocks away is the quaint little neighborhood of Santa Ana

With it's own small market, restaurants, church and assorted art galleries, it is a convenient stop for fruit, tortillias or an authentic Mexican breakfast or lunch.

3 1/2 blocks south of the house is Plaza Grande. Every Sunday morning and afternoon local artisans gather around the park to sells their wares. Several blocks surrounding the park are closed to traffic and open only for pedestrian traffic, making it a pleasant area to stroll in search of treasures. There is almost always something going on at Plaza Grande or it's surrounding museums and theaters.

6 blocks right down our street is the largest street market in the city. It is an experience in Mexican culture just to walk through it. Bustling with people, buses, and vendors it can be a bit overwhelming at first. But it vibrates with life and Mexican culture as street musicians play their music amidst the calls of vendors and the pungent odors of the market.
