LAS TRINITARIAS (another word for bougainvillea) is a luxurious, newly built (2011) two-story beachfront home located on the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico's Emerald Coast (named for the emerald green waters) in Sisal, Yucatán, Mexico. Sisal is a seaport town located 45 minutes from Mérida – the capital city of Yucatán state, and a recently named “UN City of Peace”.
The house is located in a quiet area of upscale private beach homes around 3 km from “downtown” Sisal and its newly renovated pier. There you can shop for groceries, enjoy water sports, or indulge in fresh seafood and a cold drink at a beachfront restaurant. Unlike Progreso, where the masses from Mérida descend, Sisal is an uncrowded and safe fishing village where you can relax and enjoy yourself amidst an atmosphere of peace and tranquility.
This 3965 square foot home has 5 ocean-view bedrooms – each with built-in wood closets, air conditioning and ceiling fans – including super-comfortable beds: 1 king, 4 queen, 1 twin and 1 queen futon. Four bedrooms have in-room bathrooms with showers and there are an additional 3 half-baths including one in the “maid’s room” which functions as a sixth bedroom. If you have a small group, you can rent our home with just two bedrooms plus the maid's room for up to a 20% discount depending upon the season. The home features a well-equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, an island and a pass-though opening to the outdoor sit-up bar; and a combination living room / dining room with a retractable glass wall opening to the ocean-view patio which sports a large palapa with built-in sofas, an in-ground solar-heated pool and a grassy area (to keep your dog happy).
The beach in front of our house is effectively private and the waters are almost always very calm with a gradual slope that is still only chest-deep 400 feet in at most times - perfect for young children and all levels of swimmers. Throughout any given day you’re likely to see a constant stream of butterflies, pelicans diving for fish, and an amazing array of other birds. In the early evening enjoy a cocktail on the Flamingo View Terrace and watch hundreds of flamingos returning home to the cienega for the night as the sun sets over the ocean. While you’re not lazing about you can visit ancient Mayan ruins; explore caves; swim in a cenote; or visit the museums, restaurants and shopping of Mérida.
Satellite TV is included with over a dozen English-language channels in addition to Spanish-language channels. Internet is optional via the rental of our 3G+WiFi hotspot. Maid service is included once a week for stays longer than 1 week to clean the house and clean/change the included linens and towels. She is also generally available other days to clean and/or cook for USD$25-50 per day (4-8 hours).
Our fully-fluent Spanish/English-speaking property manager can optionally greet you at Mérida airport, will welcome and orient you to our home, and be on-call to handle any unforeseen issues and provide advice for planning activities during your stay.
