We purchased our property several years ago to build on it for our retirement, while vacationing here. The climate is the best place we've ever been in the winter. We are 25 minutes to Cancun International Airport, so we can easily get to anyplace in the world. From most of the northern major cities of the USA and CANADA, we can be here sitting on the front porch having a martini, before someone else can get thru the airport at their destination in Florida. Flight time from New York to Cancun is one hour longer than getting to Miami. The entire Mayan Riviera coast is still growing, so it's a great place to live, and play. We LOVE to shop, and this is a shoppers paradise.

We really enjoy the tranquility of the Puerto Morelos area and the location is so central to everything going on in the Riviera Maya. Always a sea breeze blowing thru the windows all year round, and you can hear the sound of the surf, or just sit on the porch and watch the pelicans and seagulls fly overhead and swoop in for fish. We have a nice social life, as there are many other english speakers around, from many places, as well as our latin and european friends. We dine with friends frequently, and there is always a new or unique place to try some different cuisine, whether it's at a friends home or party, or in a restaurant specializing in food from another country, which there are plenty of all over the area. There is always some new activity, or festival somewhere. We love to beachwalk, and we meet many people from all over the world who come here for vacation and we get into some very interesting coversations. We love to sit on the oceanfront balcony and just people watch, or swim in the ocean, or in our own private pool, or quietly read in a gently swinging hammock, and listen to music, while mellowing out with the sounds of the sea. We also go to the sidewalk cafes alot for a drink and a chat, and there are loads of them too, in every city and town. There is plenty to see and plenty to do. There is something for everyone here. And then there are the markets. Another bonanza!

My family of 5 and I just spent a delightful summer vacation at this home and it was wonderful. We thought it may be hot because it was August in the tropics, and were pleasantly surprised that there was a nice breeze coming off the ocean everyday. The water temperature both in the pool and in the ocean was just right. We sat on the porch and watched the ships passing far out at sea, and played on what seemed our own private beach. Even though there were other people in residence, there are few on the beach at any given time. Antonio the caretaker, cut and opened fresh coconuts for us, and we put rum and spices in them, and drank our own version of authentic pina colladas. That was a first for all of us. The house was the cleanest beach house we ever rented, and the oceanfront garden was a delight. We grilled lunch several times right by the ocean, and went out for dinner every night. There are tons of restaurants everywhere you go. A week was not enough time. We'll be back!

We had a wonderful time at this property. It is very private and the owner was very accomodating. The house is set up for families with small children, with pack-and-play, highchair and even a small lawn chair. The caretaker is available as much or as little as you need him. His guacamole is to die for :-) Puerto Morelos is a small town with surprisingly many restaurants . If groceries are needed, though, make the 25 minute run into Playa Del Carmen and the Walmart. Only complaint we had were the mattresses which gave most of us a sore back. We would definitely come back and can recommend this property for anyone who is looking for some relaxing days in the sun and in the pool.
Owner's Response: A nice family that came down for a short getaway, that we hope to see again sometime for a longer vacation. We use orthopedic mattresses on all of our beds. We are inspected by a quality control agency every six months. When checking the sleeping accommodations they check for firmness, support, wear, condition, etc.
We realize that each persons back, comfort zone, and support needs are different, and if there are any mattress issues that have to be addressed, at any inspection, for any reason, we replace them immediately.

My husband, another couple, and myself spent a wonderful week relaxing at Casa Manalou. I was impressed with my very first contact with Louis. I made my inquiry via the telephone and found him to be very helpful and very efficient. I was so impressed with his prompt replies when I emailed him questions. He gave very explicit directions and we were able to drive right to the house with no problems from the airport. At first, we were hesitant to rent a car but a car is a must.The house is too far to walk to town. The driving wasn't as horrible as we anticipated. Louis and Ana were at the house to meet and greet us. Poncho carried our luggage into the house for us. Ana made a beautiful fruit basket for us as a welcome gift. We were touched by her generosity. Louis and Ana took time out of their busy schedule to show us the beach road into town. Puerto Morales is a quaint little town. We ate at Habaneros, Pelicanos, and John Gray's Kitchen-highly recommend those restaurants. We bought most groceries in Playa but picked up items as we needed them in Puerto Morelos. We absolutely adored Poncho, the caretaker. We had no idea he would make our beds, sweep the floors,and remove the garbage daily. He is attempting to learn English so it was fun trying to communicate as we did not speak Spanish. He would tell us the Spanish word and we would tell him the English word. He is so delightful and thoughtful. He brought us coconut drinks and fresh guacomole that were so delicious! We enjoyed having coffee each morning on the porch and watching the ships pass by. The ocean was extremely warm as well as the pool. We went to Cozumel for a day and enjoyed the day trip. We spent the other days relaxing by the pool enjoying the warm sunshine and the beautiful view. The house is beautiful and had all the amenities anyone could need. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the house. We had neighbors but we never heard them. It is an extremely quiet neighborhood. The ocean breeze is fabulous for sleeping with the window open listening to the ocean. Both couples went home very relaxed and enjoyed their vacation. We would definitely stay at Casa Manalou again.
Owner's Response: Another group of guests that were a delight to host. They reaffirmed the convenience of a car, which we always recommend, even if you can walk to the store. Car rental is very cost effective. The pyramids are far inland from the coast, and most major attractions are all day affairs. Puerto Morelos is in the center of the "Riviera Maya", and only 25 minutes from the airport,so having your own car will maximize the time you have to go sightseeing and shopping. There is alot to see and do here, and not only should you be selective in what you wish to see and do, you will have to make return trips to see it all.

An enjoyable holiday

My husband and I and another couple stayed here for 2 weeks and had a lovely time. I would definitely recommend a car as the walk to town is long. The house is amply equipped with good cooking facilities and the living room with TV is comfortable. We were able to connect my husband's computer with no problem although my Ipad would not connect, however I was forwarned of this possibity ahead of time and was not disappointed. There are also 2 barbecues which we made use of especially the old fashioned charcoal one which was our favourite. There are some really wonderful things to say about Casa Manalou.
First, Anna and Louis are very helpful managers and were there to greet us as was a lovely bowl of fruit prepared for us by Anna. They visited weekly and were easy to contact if we had problems. As well, Anna went out of her way to help our friend locate something she needed for her daughter's wedding that she was hoping to buy in Cancun.
Second was Pancho, the lovely young man who looked after the house and pool area. He is learning English and is eager to chat with guests. He made us delightful coconut drinks, guacamole and chips and ceviche which he served on the patio.
Third, the pool is fantastic for a cooling dip and right outside the door. We always had a refreshing breeze and spent most of our time outside. The fellows fished from the sea wall and caught a surprising number of fish. We had sundowners on the rooftop and watched the numerous cruise ships go by. The house is convenient to both Cancun and Playa but Puerto Morelos was our favourite place and the locals are very friendly. Shopping for groceries was a breeze at the local Chedraui.
The only downside to the house was the beach because it is small and susceptible to erosion, as well as trash and seaweed being washed up depending on wind and current. While we were there is was not a particularly nice beach to walk or swim off. We believe this was partly due to a neighbouring property raking their weed and trash back into the ocean every morning.
Overall our stay was wonderful and relaxing.

Owner's Response: These guests were a pleasure to host, and we would welcome their return any time. They seemed to really enjoy the laid back tropical lifestyle which is what we offer. The photos are representative of our beach, and the upside of a small beach is that we don't get the day trippers, on weekends. Also, our little cove is far enough away from the hotels, that we don't get many people walking by on the beach, so it remains a very quiet peaceful place, and still close to everything. This guest is also right that a car is recommended, but a car should be in your vacation plans period, if you are going to do any sightseeing or shopping. There is alot to see and do here, and attractions and shopping are spread over a wide area. Pyramids and most major attractions are all day trips, and getting there can be tedious and time consuming if you take public transport. With the prices of taxis and busses ever going up, it's very cost effective to rent a car, and have the convenience of being able to go where you want to go, when you want to go.This is especially true when you have 4 or more in your group, not to mention the cost of to and from airport transfers. There are also hundreds of great restaurants all over the area, with every type of cuisine, and to get to them, a car is a real comfort.

Can’t wait to go back
Tropical splendor is what I was thinking when we drove thru the gate to this property. The entrance is lined on both sides with coconut palms,and the tropical sun was shining thru the trees. The ocean was the most amazing shade of greens and deep blues. There was also a caretaker to unload our luggage, which is a real treat at our age, and a lovely fruit bowl waiting for us inside. We really felt welcomed. We were here for 10 days, and it was the best Mexican vacation we ever had, and we go somewhere in Mexico every other year. Our family doesn’t see each other as often as we would like these days, as we now live far from each other, so we try to get together on vacation. We spent many hours around the pool just visiting, eating, and drinking and soaking up the sun. The house is on a little bay with a comfortable little beach, with few people passing by, so you have the feeling of being on your own little island, which is different than city beaches, with someone trying to sell you something all day long.
I live in a very upscale neighborhood back home ,but I don’t have a breakfast balcony overlooking the ocean off my bedroom, or marble floors, or an ocean facing porch to sit on and watch the boats drift by. We took a daytrip to see the pyramids of Coba, which I would recommend to anyone, as they were more than amazing. My husband and father dropped us off for one day in Cancun to shop, while they went deep sea fishing. They caught some nice fish and the caretaker cooked some on the grill for us that night. We never had fish so delicious, and you can’t get it any more fresh than that. The house was comfortable, and quiet, and the cleanest rental we’ve ever been in, especially the bathrooms! The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need, but we only cook an occasional breakfast when on vacation. Who wants to cook? I do that at home. The nearby village of Puerto Morelos is a quaint little place full of friendly people and decent small restaurants. We spent a few evenings going there for dinner, and having nice conversations with people from all over. On two occasions they had entertainment in the town square. One night it was dancing to calypso music, which was another first for us. If you like to shop, there are a few curio shops, but if you go to Cancun, there are so many boutiques selling so many unique things you have a hard time deciding what to buy that you can fit in your luggage. I would recommend a vacation in here to a

Owner's Response: The last line should read "I would recommend a vacation in here to anyone". These folks were from Canada, and they are right about the shopping. We always tell guests to bring an extra fold up bag in their luggage to fill up with the treasures they will surely find and want to take home.
