Casa Mariposa, the 'butterfly house,' can accommodate your entire family with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms as well as its own private pool, washer/dryer, and a garage. This stunning home is centrally located within Merida's historic center, just a few blocks away Santiago Park with its many restaurants featuring local food, art galleries, and shopping. With all of the modern conveniences and elegant design that you expect from Burro y Flauta, it's the perfect place for the family to enjoy.

The space
Situated on a quiet street in Merida's memorable Santiago neighborhood, Casa Mariposa is an architectural marvel with great, iron butterfly wings surrounding its private patio and pool. Renovated an acclaimed local architect, this house will take your breath away as you walk through its entry way.

Casa Mariposa has a beautiful and open flow all the way through the property with views onto its picturesque patio and pool from every room in the house. On the first floor, there is an open concept kitchen, living, and dining area with large sliding glass doors to take in the lovely pool area. The space is tastefully decorated with furniture and art made by local Merida artists. The house has a light and open feel with numerous skylights for ventilation to help keep things cool, as well as mini splits in all of the bedrooms and living room.

The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need if you want to cook. Purified water is provided, as well as coffee. The refrigerator has ice made from purified water as well, so no need to worry. We provide you with basic kitchen equipment and appliances including a toaster and coffee machine so that you can fuel up with a satisfying breakfast to start your day. Coffee, creamer and sugar is provided -- no need to run to the nearest mini-mart for these basics.

The kitchen leads on to the patio with a sitting area where you can find BBQ for those days when you want to grill rather than sampling one of Mérida’s fantastic restaurants. The patio is completely enclosed by high walls for privacy and security so that you can swim and enjoy the house with peace of mind.

The home has a total of 5 separate bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, three of which are located on the ground floor and two upstairs. Each bedroom has a light and airy feeling with colorful iron bed designs inspired by the wings of a butterfly. The three bedrooms on the ground floor have their own built in desks in case you need to get some work done on your trip. Every bedroom has large built in closets for storage.

On the ground floor, there is a master bedroom with a king bed located just near the entry way with an ensuite bathroom. This bathroom is also accessible from the pool area so that you have a convenient bathroom to use while swimming. Just past the living area to the back of the property, there are two more bedrooms connected by an ensuite bathroom. We call this the ‘family suite’ as one of its bedrooms contains a king bed and the other two twin beds better suited for kids.

The master bedroom upstairs also has an ensuite bathroom with a gorgeous view of the pool and patio, as well as a private sun porch. The upstairs guest room is very spacious and includes bunk beds for the kids as well as an extra day bed.

The house features custom made furniture from Yucatan Custom Furniture, furniture and lighting from Takto as well as antiques and artwork made by Merida’s local artists.

Hi I'm Becca, currently 25 years old, and working towards my BBA in marketing and B.A. in psychology from University of St. Thomas in Houston. I work with my parents in our family company, Burro y Flauta Vacation rentals. The last few years have been exciting for me. In 2013 I had the opportunity to take some time from university to go on a trip around the world with my grandmother. Of course I jumped at the chance and off we went for 4 months on the MS Amsterdam. I came back a completely different person and travel became an indispensable part of my life. Not only did I get to see and experience in real life what I had only ever read in history books, but it really changed my life in a concrete way... Along the way I dropped 40 lb! When I got home I was inspired to lose a total of 100 lb alongside my family. My mom, dad and I motivate and help each other meet our goals to this day. Ironic how it's all from losing weight on an all you can eat cruise ship. Since then a lot has changed. I once again seized the opportunity to go around the world this past January, which was just as amazing an experience. I've been to over 60 different countries, six continents, love experiencing new cultures, cuisines, and most of all people. By next year I will be shaking my travel bug for a little while and settling in Mérida, Mexico. I'm following my parents, who have started their new life in Mérida. My mom has been working in Mexico City for 20+ years and decided she wanted make her dream home in Mérida. My family and I have been working in and visiting Mexico ever since I can remember, especially the Yucatan. Now we are excited to fully immerse ourselves into the Yucatecan culture and build our vacation rental business together, Burro y Flauta. We hope to get others just as excited about this beautiful city as we are. For more information about us, you can visit our F . B page. I hope to see you in Mérida! Saludos. F . B /burroyflauta
