Overview

Puerto Morelos House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Completed in January 2010, this large home has everything you need to have a great vacationl! Hand-painted Mexican tile sinks set the traditional but tasteful Hacienda tone, along with lavish use of colorful tiles...some created uniquely for this home. Located 12 miles south of the Cancun airport on a quiet stretch of beach north of the fishing village of Puerto Morelos, the gorgeous ocean view from your covered terrace is bracketed by the piers of Desire Pearl Spa/Hotel and the national marine research center UNAM.

Plan your extended family vacation here or bring 3 other couples! You'll have two spacious master suites (one on the main level and one upstairs) with king beds, plus enough room for a crib or rollaway for a small child. The 3rd bedroom has a King bed and 4th bedroom has twin beds that can be made into king and also has a trundle to accommodate more children. A 5th bedroom with its own bath/shower on the first floor is equipped with twin beds that can be made up as king and functions as a 'lock-off' for smaller families but is included in pricing for groups of 8 or more.

We have a Pack & Play-type baby crib and a roll-away, plus 2 trundles w.thick pad to give flexibility to your sleeping arrangements. All 4 bedrooms have space for these additional sleeping accommodations.

A local artist created gorgeous Stained-glass entry murals to enhance the curved brick Mexican traditional boveda hallway. The kitchen features granite countertops and lots of space. A GE Profile dishwasher, garbage disposal and double-sink head the owner's list of favorite amenities, matched by the GE Profile double-door refrigerator with ice-maker connected to a bottled water system. A GE Proflie microwave, Bosch glass cooktop, TEKA gas oven and the custom range hood with powerful extractor fan complete the kitchen luxuries...but you don't want to miss out on activities while in the kitchen, so the open divider bar lets you take part in the pool and beach activities. Watch the waves roll over the reef while you prepare dinner. If you don't want to cook, there are several local catering services and plenty of restaurants around the town square.

About Lucy H. Farrar

We're Charles & Lucy, 'Los Ancianos' (elderly ones) as the plaque made as a joke says beside our front gate. Our gray/white hair (and children with gray hair!) says it all, anyway. We met 32 years ago while working in Saudi Arabia, then moved to England, so living overseas was nothing new to us. Originally from Louisiana & Tennessee, Colorado has been our home for almost 26 years at 7500 ft. elevation. Following Charles' early retirement from Mobil Oil, we have worked at running successful real estate companies and alpaca ranching in Colorado. Purchasing our first Puerto Morelos condo sight unseen in 1995, we spent occasional weeks here, wishing always that we could stay longer. After selling our real estate business, we were able to stretch the weeks to a month and then several months. Feeling the need for more space than our condo could provide and wanting bedrooms to accommodate more visitors (our 7 adult children and their families, in particular), we designed a colorful 'dream' house to fit the tiny beachfront lots in the Puerto Morelos area. Charles, early riser that he is, fell in love with the bright sunrises over the ocean. I called the bright gold and peach colors 'his mango sunrises' and when it came time to pick colors and name for our Mexico house, we decided on Villa Mango Sunrise. Now we can enjoy them from our own terrace!

Lucy H. Farrar purchased this house in 2010

Why Lucy H. Farrar chose Puerto Morelos

We bought a condo in Puerto Morelos in 1995 and have enjoyed the town since then. It has quaint charm, friendly people and the beach is fantastic. In retirement, with more time to spend in Mexico, we looked for beach lots up and down the coast from Cancun to Tulum and finally located the lot of our dreams right under our nose: 2 lots down from our condo at Costa Blanca. Getting clear title to the land in 2008, we located a builder and finalized plans in December, preparing to begin construction in early 2009. When our builder said the house would be done by December, we laughed! 'It's Mexico, you know, so what year?' But it all happened in 2009: good weather, with no hurricanes, and a crew that worked steadily as planned...and by December it was ready for a test rental over holidays, complete with tree! We lived in it for 3 months in early 2010 and got the kinks out, so it was in excellent shape for rentals starting in April 2010.

What makes this house unique

Our seven adult children and their families enjoy a wide range of activities: some are divers and find the reef incredible at Puerto Morelos; others snorkel, tour ruins at Tulum, Chichenitza and Coba, try out the jungle zip line just south of PM, or simply veg out in the hot tub and the loungers around the pool. In our late 70's, our chief enjoyment is walking the beach, having lunch or dinner at our favorite restaurants, playing with grandchildren and just relaxing. Puerto Morelos has a more laid-back environment than Cancun or Playa del Carmen, and is not the 'party scene'... which we truly enjoy.

The views of the ocean are incredible and visible from 3 of the 5 bedrooms. On the street side of the house, the mangrove and it's abundant bird life can be enjoyed from the 2nd floor front bedroom or the roof sunbathing terrace.

Since we have had grandchildren of all ages visiting us at Mango Sunrise, we have a portable crib, car seats, booster chair, etc. for guest use.

The vibrant gold colors we chose for the exterior stucco were carefully matched from a photo taken years ago of ...you guessed it...a mango sunrise! We wanted a cheerful but welcoming décor throughout the house and chose batik paintings by Mago, a local artist, for wall décor and custom stained glass by another local artist surrounding the front door...the panels of which were hand-carved by artists at Temezon in central Yucatan. One of our prize décor items is the concrete boat sculpture on the ocean-side of our pool, depicting a man and a woman making their way to shore, and purchased by our builder at the annual Easter market in Michoacán. We admire the great diversity of artistic talent in Mexico and tried to make our home reflect much of that without being overpowering.

Simply the best!!

  • 5 of 5
We rented Villa Mango for a 2 week period from December 27, 2014 to January 10, 2015. The first week was shared with my brother and his family - we were a total of 8. Never did we feel crowded - everyone had their own space. The house is just so big and well laid out. The second week was just our family of 3. My husband and I had seen this home on previous vacations in the area and marveled at its beauty. Never did we imagine it would one day be our home for 2 weeks, and what a fabulous home it was!! Very quiet, safe area within 20 minutes walk from the village either by the beach or road - we did not have a car. The home is exquisite and everything has been thought of. All the appliances and drawers are very well labelled making it easy to use everything. We only ate at restaurants about 5 times during the two-week period -it was just too comfortable at home. Lucy was a joy to deal with as we prepared for our trip. Angie and Ale were so helpful, both in preparation for our trip and during our stay. We truly appreciated all their help and especially doing our grocery and stocking the fridge for a small fee. Miriam does a great job keeping the place clean. Would love to go back some day and have no hesitation recommending to anyone wanting to get away from the resort life - this is so much better!! Some of the restaurants we enjoyed include El Merkadito, El Sabor de Mexico, El Pesquero. Fish at the co-op is out of this world. Paco at the main dock for snorkeling runs a good business. Violeta's massage tent on the beach is so worth it - I went 3 times during the 2 weeks. This is such a beautiful, laid back village with everything you need to make your stay a real vacation. Our best holiday ever!! Thanks again Lucy for sharing your beautiful home Nicole and Lucien

An amazing family vacation

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to write a review about our stay at Mango Sunrise! My sister & husband invited us to stay here with them for the week! We had a fantastic time! The home is beautiful and spacious! The cousins kept busy between the beach, pool and town of Puerto Morelos! We would walk into town for dinner each night and had amazing meals! Angie & Ally made sure we had everything we needed and were full of wonderful suggestions! So very helpful! Thank you for an amazing stay!

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
We spent New Years with another family at Villa Mango and could not have been more pleased. The house is beautiful, the pictures don't really even do it justice and it was a perfect vacation spot for two families with kids. Lucy and Angie were so accommodating and easy to work with. I would highly recommend this house to anyone!!!!

GREAT FAMILY VACATION TIME!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our time at Mango Sunrise was Great!!! We really enjoyed the house... the view from the pool, terrace, from every window... Everything was perfect!!! The house had EVERYTHING we needed. We fell in love with the house.
Armando is a nice person and he help us to have the beach, pool and garden in excelent conditions everyday. Puerto Morelos is a perfect place to have some action and rest a lot. We really appreciate the time we spend there. We enjoyed the Cenote ride, go fishing, dinner at town, Xcaret, etc. We didn´t want to live.
We truly hope that you'll allow us to stay in Mango Sunrise again soon.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
Mango Sunrise was perfect for our family of 7 including 2 grandsons, 1 & 2 years old. The home is in brand new condition and top notch construction in every way. The kitchen had every gadget you could want, the TV had Dish network from back home and the beds were just right. My wife wanted to buy the place from the moment she laid eyes on it!

We watched our grandsons swim in the pool with the ocean in the background while sipping on a cold one...it don't get much better than that.

The location was ideal, about a 20 minute stroll along a beautiful beach into the quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos with shopping and lots of very good restaurants. The town square has a nice playground with swings and slides that the boys really enjoyed. The town of Puerto Morelos is like Mayberry in Mexico; everyone seems to know each other, the streets feel very safe and everyone you run into is friendly.

Lucy was a pleasure to do business with and everything was just as described in the listing. We would stay here again without hesitation.
