Merida Villa Rental Photos and Description
Spectacular 3 bedroom/4.5 bath home located in the best area of Merida Centro.
This exquisite home is guaranteed to surprise and delight. Please read carefully before checking the photos or you are sure to be deceived by the playful architecture! Calle Escondida means Hidden Street....the designer of this amazing home created an optical illusion which fools all first time visitors.
Entering from the street into a lovely Colonial living room with soaring beamed ceilings,an exposed stone wall and custom ironwork doors, guests pass into a courtyard which appears to be bordered by various dwellings, all typical of local architecture. Some seem to be remodeled Colonials, one is a dilapidated, seemingly abandoned building and another is a church. It is all a wonderful illusion, however, as this is in reality the private courtyard entry of a fabulous home.
Straight ahead is the main house, bordered on both sides by the artful facades. Only on one side are the facades actually a part of the house, the other side is only an incredibly inventive way of disguising a tall courtyard wall.
The magic continues in the main areas of the house with lofty ceilings, dramatic lighting, enormous chandeliers, and amazing views from every angle. The giant curtain raised over a concert stage complete with grand piano, is crafted not of velvet but rather of concrete. Hand-painted designs decorate some walls and even the contemporary concrete kitchen island. Even the bathrooms, each very different, are dramatic and extraordinary.
As dramatic and formal as some parts of this home are, it is, in reality, a casual, playful and welcoming space. Full of surprises, to be sure, but just as surely the perfect holiday retreat for your family to pass a memorable vacation in Merida.
The special features of this home are too numerous to list, and it will be more fun to discover them for yourselves. Book now, the home is only available for the months of December and January.
