Cookie and Cracker, Mérida’s first canine real estate agents, do a fine job showing us why Casa Rio Luna stands out.

With over 3,000 square feet of luxury living on one of Mérida’s most beautiful, wide residential streets, Casa Rio Luna is pristine and private. And it’s only two blocks from the Paseo de Montejo, in one of the city’s most sought-after neighborhoods, Itzimná.

Every room has high ceilings and large open spaces with nice views to the patio area. But it’s the small details that put Casa Rio Luna over the top.

Casa Rio Luna is available for sale through Merida Living Real Estate.

A tour of Casa Rio Luna begins with a welcoming foyer. To the left of the main entrance, there is a nice studio with a half bath and lots of storage space. It also leads directly to the patio, so service people don’t have to go through the main house to reach the pool and gardens.

To the right, there is a wonderfully designed living room, dining room and well-equipped, highly appealing kitchen. A large, separate pantry area is behind the fridge.

Off the living area, a large and comfortable terrace connects the home to nature. The gardens, including a section designed to attract butterflies, were installed by a certified landscape designer. “This is definitely one of the best-designed gardens I’ve personally seen in a very long time,” said Carlos Betancourt, of Merida Living, which is offering the property for sale.

The large swimming pool is one of Casa Rio Luna’s best assets and features a nice sitting area for cooling off.

The master bedroom is huge. It has impressive high ceilings and a superb view of the pool and gardens. The master closet is very large as well, as is the double-sink bathroom.

The en suite guest bedroom in the back is also generously proportioned and has its own Buddha garden.

An ample garage also offers another entrance to the property, an incredible asset that provides yet more private access to maintenance suppliers such as gardeners and pool service crews.
