Tucked away on the lush grounds of Hacienda Sac Chich, Casa de Maquinas are 3 limestone buildings, a water tower and an 85 ft. chimney. Surrounded by palm filled gardens Casa de Maquinas consists of three 2000sq.ft. rectangular structures that date to 1850. Throughout the hacienda there is evidence of its previous utilitarian life. Iron wheels and massive beams are remnants of its past. One building, CASA VIEJA, houses the living room, 2 king bedrooms, a loft bedroom with a queen and a double and 2 bathrooms and a colonial kitchen. Opposite the Casa Vieja is another building, the CASA NUEVA, where a dramatic central hallway is the entrance to 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all with soaring 26 foot ceilings and 13 foot high doors. The large master has a sunken living area, and outside within a walled garden is a settee and plunge pool.

The owners, Cyndy & Howie, couldn't be nicer or more helpful and have done an...

About the neighbourhood
In a traditional Mayan village, 40 minutes from the Colonial city of Merida, is the historic Hacienda Sac Chich. Surrounded by towering palms and bamboo, and flowing gardens of tropical plants you will find peace and solitude in an authentic Mayan village. Hacienda Sac Chich is conveniently within an hour drive from Chichen Itza, Uxmal and other smaller Mayan ruins, the golden city of Izamal, on the convent and Puuc Route, many well known and some secret cenotes, caves and much more. Being 10 minutes off of the Merida-Cancun highway, Sac Chich is an accessible location and truly beautiful and novel vacation spot.
