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. Between these two buildings the open-air living room and dining pavilion, the Loggia, is surrounded by lily and fish filled reflecting water ponds and dramatic lighting. From the loggia climb an enclosed spiral staircase to a rooftop lounge and star-viewing platform. Here you can watch the moon, stars, sunset, an approaching storm or enjoy the night breeze. Through a seashell mosaic tunnel from the inner courtyard you find the 40-foot pool. Once the water tank for the hacienda, the pool is now a shimmering refuge from the heat of the Yucatan. A steel and bamboo pergola and a playita of shallow water with a hammock suspended above provide areas for rest and shade. Beyond the pool, in a hidden garden you find the regulation size bocce ball court. Framing the entire hacienda are dry stacked stonewalls, tall hedges of fica and walls creatively designed with metal cages filled with local limestone. The grounds are filled with exotic rare palms, bamboos, gingers, tropical plants and fruit trees. The house restoration has been a project of the renowned Mexican architect Salvador Reyes Rios and his partner and wife Josefina Larrain. Most of the furniture throughout is designed by Salvador and fabricated locally. Adjacent to the hacienda is an award winning contemporary home, Casa Sisal. Surrounded by water lily reflecting ponds and a large green lawn, this 2000 square foot home is built within the 2 acre henequen drying fields of the hacienda and is enclosed by the haciendas original 10-foot wall, creating its own private world.Casa Sisal has 2 bedrooms (one king and 2 queens), 2 baths, full kitchen, living area and dining for 8. Walk out of the living area on one side you'll find a patio with a 30- foot lily pond and out the other side is a beautiful 3-sided infinity edge swimming pool, palapa and patio. This home is constructed of hard woods, limestone and plaster polished to a sleek finish by the ancient Mayan technique called chukum. The ceiling and door heights are 10 feet giving every room a sense of great space. The house is lit very dramatically and on the lawn there are two rows of royal palms that at night seem to be suspended in space. Designed to experience the beauty of the Yucatan light and sky you will find Casa Sisal a respite from it all. For information about renting this home with the hacienda or separately please visit the Hacienda Sac Chich website. This estate can become what you want it to be: a private oasis away from the rest of the world, a fun filled family retreat, or a magnificent event environment. Sac Chich is the perfect hideaway haven for one couple, a group of friends or a family reunion. There is privacy and space for all. As you would expect from a villa of this caliber, almost every detail of the interior and exterior finish is flawless. Hacienda Sac Chich is not a hotel experience yet goes beyond a home rental. This historic hacienda captures the true spirit of Yucatan culture and reflects a sense of peace and harmony.More

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.
