Overview

Puerto Morelos House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6-8)

Sunbathe with privacy on the rooftop terrace and cool down in the newly built pool with its treetop view of the mangrove jungle. Casa Perros Afortunados (House of the Lucky Dogs) is a newly refurbished 2,500 sf private vacation rental house in the quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos, Q.R., Mexico just 25 minutes from the Cancun airport. A short stroll to the beach or a four minute walk to the restaurants and shops around the town square. The house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms are identical master suites on the second floor, each with high quality king-sized beds, full bathrooms, and large balconies. The fully-equipped kitchen is large with peninsula seating, and includes a five burner gas stove with griddle. The second floor also features a Media Room with a 47 inch LCD TV with Dish satellite service, DVD / VHS player, an VOIP telephone for free calls to the USA or Canada, and new comfortable lounge seating. The third bedroom, on the main floor, has one queen bed, large windows, a 42 inch plasma TV, and an adjacent full bath. A covered patio overlooks the rear garden and includes an outdoor ping pong table. Enjoy sunsets over the jungle from the pool or the new covered terrace rooftop lounge with Moroccan lighting and wet bar. Stairs up from the roof lead to a large new observation deck, with a stunning 360 degree view. Watch the waves break over the coral reef or the jungle birds over the mangroves. See the sun rise from the Caribbean sea or set into the jungle. Puerto Morelos offers an amazing array of activities: dive or snorkel along the pristine coral reef (a protected national park and part of the world's second largest coral reef), sport fishing in the Caribbean, massages, biking, golfing, beautiful underground cenotes with crystal clear water, or short drives to shopping and nightlife in Cancun or Playa del Carmen.

About Owner / Property Manager

My wife and I relocated to the Yucatan in 2010 from San Francisco, CA. We purchased a 200 year old Spanish colonial home in the historic central district of Merida. While out exploring the peninsula's Mayan ruins, cenotes, and beautiful Caribbean waters for snorkeling we came upon the wonderful and lovely seaside town of Puerto Morelos. We fell in love immediately and bought a 2nd home. After several months of updating and renovations we are ready to invite vacationers to come discover the beauty, tranquility, and adventure of an authentic Mexican experience in this charming fishing village.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Puerto Morelos

When searching for our vacation home on the Mayan Riviera, we considered both what we wanted in the location, as well as what we did not want. Of course we needed walking access to the beautiful blue Caribbean water. We also wanted easy access to the Cancun Airport to make it an easy trip for visitors. We wanted an authentic Mexican experience, where you know you're in Mexico, and not surrounded by predictable glass and steel high-rise resorts that could be on a beach anywhere. We wanted a small location with the colorful and interesting experience of having locals as neighbors. Where we could easily walk to cool cafes, restaurants, diving and snorkeling, and local Mayan markets.

What makes this house unique

We found all that and more in Puerto Morelos. A seaside fishing village perched between a stunning reef-protected beach and mangrove jungle, both beautiful features that prevent excessive growth of the town. Yet it's just a 25 minute drive to the Cancun international airport. So with privacy as a main objective, we chose a recently built two story house a block and a half off the beach, and just two blocks to the shops and restaurants around the main square. Close enough to stroll easily to either, yet set just far enough away for privacy. Then to enhance the experience, we built up the top of the house, adding a rooftop observation deck with our own large terrace and pool for complete privacy and a 360 degree view that includes the ocean reef, the lighthouse, the coco palm treetops and the mangrove jungle. Inside, we have upgraded the decor, kitchen, WiFi, music systems, etc. to provide modern luxuries. We are proud of what we have accomplished. We love our time here and invite you to enjoy it as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such an amazing time staying in Russ & Leanna's stunning Puerto Morelos home. Everything was perfect: clean, organized and beautifully decorated. In addition, Russ, Leanna & Lucio were very kind and helpful. Thank you both for everything - I hope to stay again one day!

Lovely, well-maintained house in nice town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful house with our parents and our teen-age son. It was just as bright and well-furnished as the photos indicated. The house was extremely clean and comfortable and decorated with all kinds of bright and interesting objects, including some useful travel books about the local area. The beds are very comfortable. The rooftop pool is great. We walked all over town from there and used our rental car to visit Tulum, Cancun and Chichen Itza. The town is nice and still pretty authentically Mexican given how many tourists stay there. All in all, a wonderful trip, and the house exceeded our expectations.

charming house by the sea

  • 5 of 5

I'm going to list some of the reasons we LOVED this house. It's bright,and cheery with interesting art and textiles everywhere. It is so clean and comfortable. There is a beautiful rooftop terrace and pool where you get the sea breezes. We were there for five days and there is so much to do, we didn't have enough time to do everything we had planned to do. The beach and the charming little town are within walking distance, just a couple of blocks away. There is fresh squeezed juice practically next door, the most awesome breakfast burritos are close by too. I hear there is a crocodile museum where you can actually hold the baby crocodiles. Puerto Morelos offers cenotes, scuba diving,lectures,wonderful swimming and snorkeling, fishing, great shopping and restaurants,long walks on a very quiet beach in the mornings. The few short days we were there were relaxing and so much fun. We hope to return next year!

Our happy place!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6, 4 adults and 2 children, just enjoyed our second stay at Casa Lucky Dogs. Again, I can't say enough about how fabulous this house is! From the beautifully equipped kitchen to the lovely bedrooms, the media room and roof top pool, it's a fantastic property! Thanks again Russ for sharing your home with us!

Amazing villa conveniently located!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I with our daughter, along with another couple and their kid and another friend, stayed at this beautiful 3 bdrm casa! We had an amazing time, largely due to the comfort and size of the home and it's convenient location to the town, beach and numerous restaurants. Lucio, who takes care of the property, was also wonderful and very helpful during our stay. Everyone had enough space to spread out, even though most of our time at the casa was spent on the relaxing roof top lounge. The kids loved the pool and it was a perfect size for them to splash around and cool off. Russ was very helpful and accommodating and from booking to arrival, everything was smooth and simple. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone considering a stay in the wonderful and laid back town of Puerto Morelos. We definitely want to come back one day!!! Thanks again!

Wonderful but noisy...

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great stay. The house was well equipped, conveniently located close to all amenities (vegetables stand, restaurants, « downtown », etc.) and 4 minutes walk to the beach. The highlight was the beautiful and cozy roof top terrace, amazing for the early morning coffee or the evening beer.

Some points to consider if you are booking this house, and we are surprised that nobody mentionned before:

-The immediate neighbourhood could be better. It is quite noisy at night: roosters in the neighbour’s backyard, dogs in the front street, etc. We had to sleep with earplugs.

-The single bedroom on the first floor is not as confortable as the two others. The beds are small and hard and the AC goes on&off all the time.
