Overview

Puerto Morelos Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Walk into this apartment and you will be swept away by the panoramic (180 degrees) views of the turquoise sea, blue skies, white coral sands, distant waves crashing over the barrier reef, palm trees swaying in the breeze, and pelicans and gulls sailing by your third-floor balcony. Standing on the balcony, you will almost believe you are on a cruise ship on the Caribbean Sea. This is Casita Blanca’s prized apartment, thanks to its third-floor corner location, unparalleled views, and spacious 3-bedroom layout!

This condo has been renovated, painted, and furnished with furnishings native to the Yucatán. It is the only apartment in Casita Blanca offering a direct ocean view from the master bedroom, so you can fall asleep listening to the gentle surf or wake up to the rising sun. There is a king-size bed in the master bedroom, a double bed in the second bedroom, and a double futon in the third bed/TV room. The bedrooms have abundant closet space and a safe for your valuables. The renovated kitchen is fully equipped (with filtered water, coffee maker, microwave, tiled countertops, stools, etc.), and the dining area can easily seat six people around the teak table. Step out onto the large balcony, nap in the lounge chair, or just drink in the view. The apartment has Wi-Fi, a CD and DVD player, as well as quality linens and towels, including extra beach towels.

Casita Blanca is a small family-owned complex located directly on the ocean in the charming Mexican fishing village of Puerto Morelos. Enjoy Casita Blanca's beautiful gardens, tiled swimming pool, lounge chairs, palapas, and the fabulous beach where you can swim, kayak, and snorkel. Casita Blanca’s managers, Roberto and Selene, are charming and friendly Spanish- and English-speaking hosts who will assist you with your vacation needs.

A few blocks away is the town of Puerto Morelos, a hidden jewel-of-a-town unspoiled by over-development. You can watch the fishermen come in with their catches at the end of each day, or arrange for first-class diving or snorkeling along the coral reef, a few hundred yards offshore. The town also has very good local restaurants, a grocery store, an English-language bookstore, artisan markets, local spas and yoga classes. Need more action? Its an easy drive north to Cancún or south to Playa del Carmén for shops, crowds, and nightlife. Or, head south along the Riviera Maya to see its famed archaeological sites and ecological parks. There is no end to the delights that await you in this beautiful part of the world!

About Carter Bancroft

My wife and I are both academics, living in the New York City area on Long Island. In 2010, we rented another condo in Casita Blanca, and liked it and Puerto Morelos so much that we bought our present condo there (see more below).

Carter Bancroft purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carter Bancroft chose Puerto Morelos

We rented another unit at Casita Blanca early in 2010, and loved both the quiet fishing village of Puerto Morelos (only a 20 minute drive from Cancun International Airport), and the beautiful, quiet Casita Blanca situated right at the ocean beach. We liked the location of Casita Blanca- only a 10 minute walk to the center of town, but far enough to be on a very quiet part of the beach. While staying at Casita Blanca, we were shown a lovely spacious apartment on the third floor, with its gorgeous panoramic views of the ocean. We fell instantly in love with the apartment, bought it, and renovated and furnished it. We think that you and your family would very much enjoy a stay in our place.

What makes this condo unique

This is indeed a unique apartment- located on the third (top) floor, sunny and spacious with its three bedrooms, bathed by a constant sea breeze, and possessing a gorgeous panoramic ocean view that is the best in Casita Blanca.

Fantastic Location, Responsive Management, Just a few Glitches

  • 4 of 5

The previous reviews pretty much cover the many good aspects about Casita Blanca condos, unit A5 and its owner. The complex's buildings, grounds, pool and beach areas were all well maintained. We found it an easy walk (about 8 Mexican blocks) down a sandy beach to PM's town square where most restaurants, shops, ATMs, money exchange, etc are located. Also a local grocery store, Super Casa Martin, where you can purchase about all your food and drink needs. The property manager Roberto while kept very busy maintaining the complex; was always friendly and responded to any issues in a timely manner.

The condos are individually owned so the décor, amenities, updates, etc. can vary widely depending upon which unit you rent. I recommend a 3rd floor unit for the best views of the beach during the day and for moonlight shimmering on the ocean at night. The ground floor units view of the shoreline are blocked by a hedge along the property's front and the coconut trees have grown to the height where some 2nd floor balcony views may be partially blocked by their palms. Our 3rd floor condo had spectacular views as shown in the photos. The unit was adequately furnished and housekeeping came thru about every other day or so to clean. Roberto and his crew were swapping out our water heater when we arrived; after a couple tries we had muy caliente agua (alotta hot water). The rest of the appliances and utilities worked fine. The WiFi worked best out on the balcony. The safe in the back smaller bedroom with the double bed works fine if you follow Roberto's instructions. There is no real 'wall' between the bedrooms, just a large sliding wood-paneled door. We're a well-traveled crew, so this was not a privacy issue for us. Both bedrooms only have sheers for curtains. So if you get the king-sized bedroom with east ocean-facing windows; plan on being an early-riser as you awaken to the brilliant morning sunrises illuminating the room. We did not find out until after we arrived that while A5 had a large HD TV, there was no satellite/cable/local TV reception? Which pretty much made our decision to watch the Superbowl at a local cantina vs in our condo. Which while more expensive, was mas fun. Another slight glitch, the knob on our dead bolt broke off? Luckily we'd packed a of pair of needle nose pliers with us so we could grab and slide the bolt open to avoid the quandary of being locked in a 3rd floor condo. We info'd Roberto about it. He said Don't use it. Wise advice.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that our TV had no cable service at that time. This occurred because the cable TV company we had been using suddenly went out of business. I have subsequently had a satellite dish installed for the exclusive use of the TV in our condo. The HD TV set in our condo is now connected to a satellite package that includes 67 channels. Carter

Lovely spot-- all made so easy!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was ideal for catching the breezes! The coast was quite windy while we were there and we opened all the windows and let the breezes keep us cool at night... The master bedroom has wonderful windows that allow the air to come right through-- we fell asleep listening to the waves crash and the palm trees rustle. In the mornings, the sunrise over the ocean greeted us from the bed. I couldn't have asked for more! Everything was very easy. Despite being on opposite sides of the world, working with the owner was very easy. And Roberto, the manager, was wonderful as well. I appreciate everything. We would love to return!

Amazing location

  • 4 of 5

Just wanted to write a quick review about our visit. We had a fantastic stay at Casita Blanca. Roberto was amazingly helpful. The view from our unit was breathtaking. The walk to town for supper in the evenings was so beatiful. We loved our stay and can not wait to visit next year.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this condo. The beach is beautiful and the complex well maintained, i.e. clean with plenty of lounge chairs. The condo was comfortable with fab views but it's a bit 'weathered' and needs some updating, especially the bathrooms!! The bedrooms were fine for our family with kids, but as there are no real walls, privacy could be an issue amongst friends sharing. One item for those who like to sleep in: bring eye masks as there are only sheers on the windows and the gorgeous sunrise awakens you every morning. We had to contact the manager several times to arrange the cleaners, get towels and because the WIFI was out for days--many neighbors complaining of this as well. It's spotty at best. The bar next store, Uniquo- is good fun, and there is also a fab restaurant at the street side serving Argentine fare and live music! We ate in town every day and there are plenty of great spots. EL sabor de México is great for breakfast, el merkadito on the beach has super fish tacos, el ojo de agua hotel/café has 2/1 drinks etc. etc. We also did a snorkel boat and a fishing boat, beachside massages, and went to Tulum and Akumal to swim w/ the tortugas! All in all we loved PM and will likely be back soon!

Amazing condo at Casita Blanca

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Puerto Morelos and renting this condo unit was the best decision we could have made. Both the listing description and the listing photos are completely accurate and the owner was a pleasure to deal with- very business like, pleasant and very prompt in all his replies to our emails. The condo itself was very comfortable, clean and very well maintained . The managers of the property - Roberto and Selene are always available to help and are very responsive to any needs that may arise. As well they are so warm and friendly they truly make Casita Blanca a special place to stay. We would not hesitate to recommend this condo as it was just perfect in so many ways!!!

Lovely, gracious and accommodating all the way around

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five was invited to Mexico for a wedding, which was held at a nearby all-inclusive resort. We opted to stay off-site, or, as my husband said, "Actually in Mexico." We were very lucky to find Casita Blanca A5. The views are as breath-taking as the photos show, the condo is comfortable and welcoming, and the nearby village of Puerto Morelos is charming and fun to explore. We loved having the snorkel boat we arranged through Jessie James come and pick us up right in front of the condo, and day trips zip-lining and to Coba were easy to navigate. We were not sure we would like Mexico, but we ended up loving it, thanks in part to our wonderful home away from home.

Carter was great working with me on our dates, which were somewhat fluid as we tried to fly on miles awards. We appreciated his flexibility and graciousness.
