Casa Jardincitos is a newly restored rental home located in the historic Santiago neighborhood of Merida. This modern home makes the most of the Yucatan tradition by blending indoor and outdoor living spaces.
Purposely set back from the road, the property offers a rare and covered front porch space, helping to seclude it from the typical city noise of Centro. It is within walking distance of the movie theater, zoo, park, art galleries, bakery, restaurants, and all that Centro has to offer. It is also a quick walk to a large grocery store and, even better, the excellent mercado at Parque Santiago is only three blocks away, where you can find fresh local produce, meats, and fish year-round. There is even a bakery across the street.
The modern finishes and details of this creation are superb, but older remnants like the pasta tiled floors and authentic colonial doors remain. Freshly painted in vibrant colors Casa Jardincitos reminds you that you are in the tropics but also create a feeling of happiness in the home. The front of the home has an open floor plan which allows views of the pool and garden area and contains the living room, dining room, and kitchen which has ample cabinet space and granite countertops. In the kitchen, granite counter tops with a stainless steel, undermounted farm sink and custom cabinetry are further accented by a full subway tile back splash. This area opens to and has views of the pool and outdoor living space.
Upstairs you will find the home’s two bedrooms, complete with built-in storage and a built-in dresser in the master closet. Both bedrooms have access to their own terraces to enjoy the morning and nighttime breezes. There is a shared luxurious bathroom upstairs and another full bath back on the lower floor.
Outside is where most people in Merida spend their time. With 4 porches, 2 on the main level & 2 more on the upper one, this home makes the most of this lifestyle, but most of your time will be spent near the pool. The ample and filtered pool doesn’t disappoint. With fountains pouring into it for both sound and enjoyment, this pool comes fully equipped. Exposed exterior rock walls here also bring a natural feeling to the home. To the rear of the pool is a UV shaded pergola featuring low maintenance plantings and is the perfect place for reading or relaxing by the pool.
There are ceiling fans and 4 air conditioning units (living, kitchen & bedrooms) placed throughout the home for comfort during those times when the pool isn’t the answer.
