Situated in lush tropical grounds, the Casa Antigua is decorated with many original artifacts and curiosities from its henequen past. Lavishly appointed with handcrafted furniture, two bedrooms with en suites and a sleeping loft, the home can accommodate up to 6 guests.
Dating to 1850, the hacienda was used for the production of sisal in the late 1800's. Since that time, it has been expertly restored by renowned Mexican architect Salvador Reyes Rios and his partner and wife Josefina Larrain.
Casa Antigua has been lovingly restored to house two bedrooms - one with a sleeping loft - in addition to the home's colonial-style kitchen and indoor living area. Both bedrooms have ensuites, one of which is located in a private garden courtyard cleverly created from an old water tank.
On the other side of Casa Antigua is the 40-foot lap pool, accessible either through the house or via the courtyard tunnel under the hacienda's 85-foot chimney. Lined with a mosaic of seashells that hint at the water beyond, the tunnel opens to the pool and tropical garden of palm trees and gingers.
A steel and bamboo pergola with lounge chairs and hammocks shade an adjacent patio for an afternoon of swimming and relaxation. Beyond the pool lies a hidden garden where you'll find a regulation-sized bocce ball court.
In addition to Casa Antigua and the pool, guests also receive exclusive access to the main atrium of the hacienda. Opened on both sides during renovation, the atrium once housed the hacienda's main engine room. Formerly bustling with the clang of machinery from an industrial age, it has been transformed into a dramatic living space for entertaining and lounging at the heart of the property.
Spilling out on both sides with courtyards, lawn, lily ponds, and furnished with comfortable sofas and large dining table, the main atrium makes an intimate gathering spot for your party, reunion or wedding.
From the main atrium, a spiral staircase takes you up to the rooftop terrace where you can watch the sun set and survey the tropical jungle.
Feeling adventurous? Bicycles to explore the grounds and surrounds are available upon request. Or enjoy volleyball, badminton, and croquet on the grounds. There's even a regulation size bocce ball court. For the kids, there are pool toys, frisbee, board games and dvd player.
