This six-bedroom, six-bath, two-kitchen home is the best example of a colonial property in Mérida that meets the modern world’s standards.

We are blown away by the attention to detail in every corner. The architecture and design were carefully planned to optimize the spaces while preserving the property’s two majestic mature trees.

When you enter the property, you’ll find a beautiful living room, dining room and kitchen with nice beams and original pasta tiles. As you leave this area, you’ll see all the wow factors that surround the patio. To your right, find three large en suite bedrooms with stunning decorative beams, pasta tiles and elegant tall doors.

To the left, there is a covered outdoor corridor that leads you from the first living area to the fantastic large swimming pool accompanied by a very old, majestic tree. These abundant outdoor covered areas are limited in Mérida’s Centro.

After the pool area, you’ll enter the main house, which features two bedrooms downstairs and a master suite upstairs.

Downstairs there is a very large, welcoming living room and a nicely equipped kitchen. To the left and right, two en suite bedrooms are for now used as movie and music rooms. Behind these rooms is a nice medium size patio.

Upstairs, there is a beautiful large bedroom with one of our favorite bathrooms: it features a roomy jacuzzi as well as a lovely balcony/terrace with a nice view of the pool area.

Another of the features to love about this property are the views. Wherever you are standing you’ll be able to appreciate the exquisite architecture of this property.

And now the icing on the cake: Villa Estrella comes fully furnished.

This is by far the best option if you want to operate a bed and breakfast, since it’s turnkey, features two kitchens and it separates the main house from three of the bedrooms. This is also a great option for those looking for a beautiful, large private residence.
