From the moment you walk in, Casa Azul will welcome you. This is a one bedroom, one and a half bath house with a beautiful roof deck to enjoy beautiful sunsets. Historic and charmingly restored, Casa Azul is full of color, original art and inside/outside spaces for your pleasure. Recently renovated, freshly painted and landscaped, it is delightful. Whether you are enjoying morning coffee in the patio listening to the songbirds, taking an afternoon dip in the plunge pool, or watching the stars on the roof, you will find relaxation and restoration in this special place. And there is A/C in every room!
Located close to centro (12 blocks from the zocalo - yet worlds away from the bus fumes and noise of Centro), this is a true Mexican/Mayan neighborhood. If you would like to experience the character and friendliness of the real Mexico, this is for you. It is a real neighborhood, where neighbors sit outside in the evening and chat with each other. You might even learn a little Mayan!
1 bedroom with a king size bed with a pillow top mattress pad.
1 double sofa bed in the living room.
1 bathroom downstairs, with talavera tile and hand crafted cement sink.
1 bathroom (more rustic) with shower on the roof deck.
A wonderfully functioning kitchen with custom, built in top of the line oven, traditional arched and tiled sink, ample counter space and an antique bakers cabinet full of bright dishes.
The kitchen opens to a wonderful patio to enjoy morning coffee and long dinners under the twinkle lights. * “Warning” this room might endanger your excursion plans. Its easy to spend hours here.*
Enjoy the soaring colonial ceilings and hand crafted rock walls in the living room and dining rooms. Complete with custom pasta tiled tables, cable tv, high speed internet and local phone, you will have everything you need to stay connected.
The plunge pool in the backyard will keep you cool as well as air-conditioning in every room. The home is made for comfort and the rooftop deck will delight you during the cool of the mornings and evenings. Star gaze to your hearts content.
Walking distance to a modern shopping center, 5 blocks away, complete with a movie cinema always showing several movies in English and a large grocery store. A walk 5 blocks in the other direction will take you to the delightful Chem Bech mercado for local fruit, veggies and Yucatecan food stalls. Panuchos or salbutes anyone? Watch out for the habanero salsa, it packs quite a punch.
This is a very special little house, lovingly renovated and cared for, in the middle of the magical land of the Yucatan.
Disclaimer. Casa Azul is not for everyone. While our immediate neighbor to the left is American, if you need to be surrounded on all sides by English speaking people, it might not be the place for you. A rental car is recommended. As in most local neighborhoods, ours is a mix of houses of varying economic value.
