PRIVATE HOUSE IN TOWN / 3 BEDROOMS, ROOFTOP POOL & TERRACE

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 two twin beds, 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.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • limited accessibility
  • pets considered
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

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!

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

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.

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. We soon realized we did not want one of the many condos on the beach. For us, sharing a community pool with nosy strangers and their sometimes less than charming kids wasn't our idea of a tropical paradise. 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.

FELT LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and our two sons (16 and 5) stayed at this property for a week in July. The house is absolutely lovely. The layout is great, the decorating is really awesome and the rooftop is the coolest place to hang out in town. We rented a car at the Cancun airport (about a 25 minute drive) with the intention of doing more driving around to the various Mayan sites and other towns. We made a couple of trips, but found that we enjoyed the house so much that we decided to stick around Puerto Morelos most of the time instead.
The beds were very comfy. The walk in showers roomy. The kitchen was very well stocked - though we rarely made use of it due to the large number of restaurants within walking distance. The entertainment room was a great place to unwind with a movie. The rooftop was the clear winner. It was always cool up top, and a nice spot for a nap. The plunge pool was perfect and we were in it sometimes twice a day. The beach was about 2 blocks away (5 minutes maybe) and was lovely. In front of the Ojo de Agua Hotel you can rent beach chairs for 150 pesos. They will bring you a table and you can order food and drinks - the nachos rock. Hang out for awhile, have a message even, and wander back to the house to putter in the pool. What a great way to relax. Then there's a little store right across the street for snacks, a cold soda or a beer.
Lucio and his family look after the house. We didn't meet his wife (we were gone the day she cleaned), but he was a really nice guy. He's very helpful and will check on you just to see if everything is going okay. Listen to his advice about places to eat - he was spot on. If there is a lady selling tamales across the street, buy them...they are delicious.
The owner's were available by email very quickly during the booking process and beyond, and were also very helpful with advice on the area.
Puerto Morelos is a charming town that is not overbuilt and resort-like as Playa del Carmen. We always felt safe. You can get anything you need right there in town. There's an OXXO 2 blocks away for groceries, and try the veggie and fruit stand between the OXXO and the house.
All in all, it was a great trip. The house really made the stay extra special though!

GREAT LUXURY IN A SMALL VILLAGE

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful place. Because of airline last minute changes, we were unable to contact the property manager of our 5-hour early arrival, but he was accommodating from the very beginning. We had 7 adults staying in the house for 9 days. The house looks exactly like it's presented, it was really comfortable and spacious. It was also beautifully landscaped. The kitchen had all the utensils and appliances we needed. There was always something for everyone to do. While some were off on bikes, others were lounging in the pool or even playing ping-pong. We could have used another bathroom, but we were aware that we'd be sharing before we got there, so were able to share.

MAY VACAY

  • 4 of 5
Lovely house with lots of room. Clean. Realize it is the tropics but the main floor bedroom needs extra fumigating for ants, otherwise the bugs were not a problem. Would've liked access to the washer and dryer for the beach towels. Very comfy beds. Excellent attention from the caretaker Lucio.

Owner's Response: So glad that you liked the house, its cleanliness, the beds, and our wonderful manager Lucio. I just want to clarify that access to the washer and dryer is available. In the listing section about rates there is a note "Washer/Dryer is an option available onsite in rear bodega building for additional $25/week. A Laundromat is located 200 meters away on same street." We make it optional to hold down the rental costs for those who will not use them. And regarding ants in the ground floor bedroom, you're right that in the tropics they will arrive quickly. It's important to be careful not to leave any food out. That's one of the reasons we keep the house so clean, as you mentioned. Thanks for booking your vacation at our house. We appreciate your comments. - Russ.

A TERRIFIC RENTAL FOR A FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Casa Perros Afortunados for four weeks this past winter and loved it. Two of our daughters, one son-in-law and two grandchildren visited during our time there and the accommodation worked out well for everyone. We enjoyed being able to watch the Olympiic events in the lovely media room, the roof top and covered balconies made for great social areas. The house had everything we needed and we really appreciated the wireless internet, which worked on every floor of the house. It is well furnished and very clean. We enjoyed having Lucio checking on things often and his father tending the garden. The house is located one and a half "short" blocks from a beautiful beach with some of the best snorkelling we've ever done. There are many great restaurants in the immediate area, the town square is only two blocks away, and a lovely little fruit and vegetable store opened on the street while we were there. We had a car for a week so did go to Playa Del Carmen a couple of times for groceries at Sorianas but found everything we needed was available locally anyway. Another of our daughters and family stayed at a hotel two blocks north of the casa after spending a week at a nearby all inclusive resort. They really enjoyed spending a few days near us in the lovely little town of Puerto Morelos as well.
Thank you Russ and Leanna!!

WE WERE THE LUCKY DOGS AT THE "LUCKY "DOG"!

We were the lucky dogs at the "Lucky "Dog"!
  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic home for our group of 8 adults (ages 20-57). We especially loved the two bedrooms with king-sized beds which were like having your own Junior Suite at a resort - super comfy beds, pillows and linens and each with a beautiful balcony to enjoy either the ocean-view or the mangroves view, plus huge ensuite. Plenty of space for all of us, which was a blessing when we experienced a week of heavy rain. The third level with the moroccan seating area and pool were our favourite spot to hang out at - it was so magical especially in the evenings. The first order of business was moving the blender from the kitchen to the bar area on that 3rd level and many happy pina coladas and margueritas were enjoyed. The kitchen was super well-appointed (lots of dishes, cookware, utensils, small appliances, etc) with a full-sized fridge and stove/oven plus the use of a charcoal bbq (had a few seafood feasts on that puppy!). We made good use of the ping pong table (the young adults playing beer-pong), as well as the two bicycles and the folding beach chairs and beach umbrella. The beach was just a few minutes walk (about a block) away, and walking to the centre of the village to enjoy the many restaurants was also just a couple of minutes walk. I can't imagine a better location for a family home with the best of both worlds (beach/mangroves/town access). The house manager, Lucio, was super lovely and helpful and came around regularly to ensure everything was fine. His wife and daughters did the housecleaning, while his 75 year old father came around pretty much daily to do gardening chores. We felt totally safe in Puerto Morelos, and the young women in our group were never concerned about walking home at night from the town centre. We were lucky enough to meet the owners, Russ and Leanne, on our first day and it made it all the more special to know we were enjoying their lovely home. We had taken their advice and booked in advance and online "USA Transfers" for transportation to/from the airport - a good choice! Having the wi-fi was great for all of electronic-gadget-addicted folks, and there was a Magic Jack phone available although we did not use this. Also didn't take advantage of the Media Room (too much to see/do/visit), but it was there if we needed it. Our two weeks went by way too fast, and if the opportunity arises we would definately book "Casa Perros Afortunados" again in a heartbeat!
