Description

Casa Sisal is a modern vacation villa rental that serves as a great gathering place offering a sensory experience in Mexico’s Yucatán region. The vacation homes’s setting is very private with lots of nature surrounding it.

The idea of Casa Sisal was essentially a traditional Mayan hut, but modernized. The architect Salvador Reyes Rios works with traditional haciendas and is known for the modernization of many of the hotels and residences in the area. Since the owners love modern architecture, over time the idea for Casa Sisal sort of developed from a Mayan hut to what you can see today.

Casa Sisal is the modern house adjacent to an old Hacienda, which is a luxury vacation home as well. In 2012 Casa Sisal won a design contest in the residential category for Mexico and first place internationally.

There is a kitchen, a dining room and sunken living room. Its glass doors slide back into the wall so lots of air can come through. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and an en-suite bathroom with a shower, while the guest room has two queens and a bathroom.

There is also a swimming pool in the backyard of Casa Sisal and the yard surrounding Casa Sisal, almost two acres in size, used to be where plant fibers were dried, formerly referred to as green gold. The lawn is really beautiful when full of fireflies at dusk.
