Overview

Puerto Morelos Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

HI, we are back and accepting reservations for this fall and beyond. The construction of a new Breathless Resort near us is moving along very nicely. By the end of the summer they will be landscaping. It will be a very nice resort and brings with it benefits for us.

Joanne and I have been renting our guest house for a few years and It has been fun. We have met lots of nice people.

***Attending a Wedding at Azul Sensatori or Secrets Silversands ?? Why not Stay Here ! *** 'CASITA de PLAYA'-- Beachfront Cottage on a quite WHITE SAND beach by the TURQUOISE WATERS of BAHIA PETEMPICH or Petempich Bay, once a quiet fishing village. PRIVATE, SAFE, and SECURE, we are located within a GATED COMMUNITY, protected by 24 hour SECURITY. While we are by no means remote, we are SECLUDED, about 3 miles north of Puerto Morelos proper. As a good friend suggests, ' Having a car will make your stay more enjoyable. ' Here there is no razzle dazzle, no crowds, no malls, and no shopping. There is , however, one restaurant within easy dine, have drinks at their bar, or be served on the beach. They are also available for snorkeling trips to the reef. You will want to be able to access the many sites and attractions of the Riveria Maya.

We are less than 15 minutes from the AIRPORT, 25 minutes from CANCUN, and 30 minutes from PLAYA del CARMEN. Just a short drive to the cute fishing village of PUERTO MORELOS, with places to SHOP and RESTAURANTS. Cancun and Playa del Carmen offer EXTENSIVE shopping and restaurants, as well as incredible NITE LIFE. The beaches of Puerto Morelos have become very popular with Cancun locals and are very crowed on weekends. This is a very PRIVATE and EXCLUSIVE area, with NO PUBLIC ACCESS. There are Boutique Resorts, Luxury Condos and Private Beach Front Homes on a strip of sand between the Caribbean and the giant Federally protected mangrove that covers the two miles to the mainland and the Security Gate.

The fabulous weather offers possibly 300+ perfect days a year. The TURQUOISE WATERS of the Caribbean and the second largest CORAL REEF in the world, make for spectacular vistas as well as great swimming ,snorkeling and diving. WILD LIFE abound in the mangrove.

Easy access to tour the many MAYAN ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES and TOURIST VENUES, or enjoy the quiet time and relax by the pool or on our private beach.

Located on a barrier island you can enjoy the SUNRISES over the ocean and the SUNSETS over the mangrove behind us, as well as miles and miles of beautiful white sandy beaches.

Our guest house, of which we have only one, is situated privately within the WALLS and GARDENS surrounding our home and directly on the beach. It has one LARGE BEDROOM with a KING-SIZE bed, SATELITE TV from the US, with all PREMIUM MOVIE CHANNELS. AIR CONDITIONING, MODERN TILED BATH and cozy EAT-IN KITCHEN, as well as a PRIVATE PALAPA covered LANAI with hammock. Share our pool and patio area, including a PALAPA TOPPED GAZEBO by the pool with hammock. Or, enjoy our PRIVATE BEACH and SWIM and SNORKEL in the Caribbean.

Offering the BEST DOMESTIC WATER IN MEXICO! While you are with us enjoy reverse osmosis water from every tap in the house. Drink the water freely without concern. ( Ask other rentals about this. ) For that matter, shower in that same water and come out feeling clean with your hair feeling wonderful. Also, swim in that same water in our pool. It utilizes a chlorine generator, which will not burn your eyes or fade your bathing suit.

EASY ACCESS to local RESTAURANTS , SNORKELING, SCUBA DIVING and FISHING tours, or tours to the ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES and and XCARET.

SWIM, SUN, READ, and RELAX, you will find nowhere more ENJOYABLE than CASITA de PLAYA and Bahia Petempich.

awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

I was in Puerto Morelos for a 3-week stay. I rented a very nice [but far pricier] VRBO just south of town for the first part of the trip. For the last part of my vacation I stayed in this casita - it was awesome. It's a cozy fit for no more than two people. It's a room off of the garage in a gated single-home property. The sense of security was very helpful. The property owners [Ken and Joanne] were tremendous and very friendly. I've rented approximately 15 times using VRBO and they were the most accomodating hosts I've ever had the fortune of meeting. They are very excited to show guests the beautiful barrier reef just off shore for snorkelling [you need to take a boat out to it - too far to swim to]. Mittens the cat was a nice visitor in the morning as I enjoyed my coffee. The small pool on site was great for sun tanning and for cooling off. The small kitchen set up in the casita allows you to bring in some groceries and have lighter meals on site. It is a bit of a drive to get to Puerto Morelos, but it never felt like a burden. The one time that I needed to do laundry I simply took everything to the laundromat in town for a small fee. Ken and Joanne designed and built their retirement home and they really did it the right way. The water filtration system is very well done and useful [no lugging heavy water jugs around]. I look forward to a return visit.

It's true... this place is "Paradise for Two"

  • 5 of 5

This review is so ridiculously overdue! The only excuse I can offer is that the experience we had a Casita de Playa was so amazing that it defies description. We spent a week in October 2013, and even now (almost a year later), I still think back on that trip as the best vacation I've ever had. The Casita is perfect for a cozy, romantic getaway for two. The king size bed is truly comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meals. Everything was very clean and having safe, drinkable water – even in the shower and pool makes this place a real stand-out. “The pictures do not do it justice.” I think most every reviewer says that – and for good reason!

Ken and Joanne (and Mittens) were great hosts. I was apprehensive at the idea of staying on someone’s property where they live, but my concern was proven to be completely wrong. They were so helpful and kind- going to great lengths to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. As others have mentioned, snorkeling with them is not to be missed. You will definitely want a car; the short drive to Puerto Morelos gets you to many wonderful restaurants and pubs, and day trips to several ruins are very convenient.

Casita de Playa offers a vacation experience you won’t find anywhere else. The privacy at the pool and on the beach was a big part of our enjoyment. I could have spent days and days lounging by the pool, sipping a drink, and reading with the cool ocean breeze and the relaxing sound of the waves… wait, I DID do that. We can’t wait to return and try and top the amazing time we had last year! Thanks, Ken and Joanne for a vacation we’ll always treasure.

Thanks to our new friends!

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Ken and Joanne are the best hosts and guides we have ever come across renting vacation homes. I honestly feel as though we've made new friends after staying with them.

This description is 100% accurate. You will not be disappointed in the rental, the grounds and amenities, or the helpfulness of the owners. Everything you need and beyond is provided. Everything is as clean as you could want. I'd check with Ken and Joanne about any gear you might want to borrow, rather than pack. My wife and I are avid snorkelers, and we could have just brought trunks, and used their gear, even offering to lend us an underwater camera.

Their love of the Puerto Morelos reef and park comes through in every interaction you will have with them. As others mentioned, they even offered to take us to the reef in their own boat, and show us the great diving locations. There are scant options for meals nearby, so plan on renting a car. La Pepitas 20 min. away in Puerto Morelos is a great place. Ken and Joanne recommended to us.

So, book this property, and stop worrying. Come enjoy the Bahia Petempitch area as much as we did, and meet our new friends, Ken and Joanne.

It was a lovely cozy beach house with access to swimming pool and sea.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were thrilled with our cozy little get-away. The beach house was well equipped with kitchen, king sized bed, large screen television and a separate sitting area upon entry. Owners were delightful and respectful of our time, giving us plenty of space. Owners also took us on a snorkelling adventure, to the Mesoamerican Coral Reef, located nearby complete with pictures of our adventure. We would definitely go again.

Notes:
We have potable water throughout all faucets and shower by reverse osmosis. Drink right from the tap and feel comfortable and safe. In the Yucatan, no one drinks the water. In fact, the water is very high in calcium and not very nice to shower in either. Leaves you and your hair sticky. No worries we even fill he pool with reverse osmosis water.
