About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 1/2 BR, Poolside, Beach Front Condominium

Bienvenido to our tiny bit of heaven on the Riviera Maya. Our unit is located within a small condominium complex in the quaint Mexican village of Puerto Morelos. You will find that the two bedroom condo has been recently refurbished and redecorated. The living area offers comfortable seating with a dining room overlooking the pool, gardens and the beach. The condo has a full bathroom/shower with an additional powder room making it ideal for four adults or a family of four or five. Guests are provided with a TV, DVD player, Docking Station/CD player. There is a small library of CDs.

The kitchen is well stocked with all the amenities of home. The terrazzo, complete with a patio set, is steps away from the pool. The pool is ideal for swimming lengths and the perfect spot to cool off in the heat of the day while sipping your own margaritas! The beautifully maintained gardens offer several palapas complete with small tables, chairs and lounge chairs.

Beyond the gardens you will be able to lounge and play on the powdery white sands of the Caribbean. Our beach has several palm trees and palapas that offer protection from the heat of the day. Lounge chairs are provided. The sand is never hot underfoot so that beach games can take place throughout the day.

The second largest barrier reef in the world is just offshore. This section of the Palancar Reef has been dedicated as a National Marine Park and offers wonderful snorkeling and scuba opportunities. The reef also provides calm, clear and safe waters for our beach. For the junior swimmers there is an 'ojo' and some coral heads that have an abundance of corals and sea life. Wearing life jackets while snorkeling is mandatory.

About Michael Inman

Hi There!

We are 2 couples from Abbotsford, B.C. Canada. We fell in love with Villas Playasol, Puerto Morelos and the Mayan Riviera all at once. After 2 delightful weeks, we returned to Canada and decided to buy the ground floor unit that was for sale...sight unseen. We have never regretted our decision! We have taken great pride in furnishing and decorating our condo in an attempt to create a warm, comfortable and welcoming atmosphere.

Our families love coming down to share this little bit of heaven with us. Such a great decision!

Michael Inman purchased this condo in 2002

Why Michael Inman chose Quintana Roo

The Mayan Riviera is an amazing, diverse area that will satisfy your every wish list. From relaxing on beautiful sandy beaches and poolside deck chairs, to interesting walks into the village of Puerto Morelos, adventure tours into the jungle, swimming in the beautiful soft waters of a cenote and exploring the ruins of the fascinating world of the Maya. This is what drew us to purchase a condo in this amazing land.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the wonderful relaxing atmosphere of Villas Playasol. To wake up in the morning and sit on our patio with a great cup of coffee and just look out over our gardens to the beach beyond.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved the view from your condo – the best in the complex is what we thing. Great being on the ground floor.

The town of Puerto Morelos is wonderful. Many friendly people. Hope the town stays traditionally Mexican for many years. We wouldn’t change a thing and we hope to be back next winter.

Best location, close to town, but private.

C. is a fantastic Manager

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with using a VBRO and not staying at an AI in Mexico. It was our 4th time to Puerto Morelos and we knew that we wanted to be in town to experience the town this trip rather than a resort.

For our family of 3 this condo was everything we needed and more. Lots of space, super clean, great pool, perfect location. I didn't want to leave.

The daily light housekeeping is wonderful - nice to have the sand swept away and quick tidy of floors and bathrooms - much appreciated!!

We did zero cooking but the kitchen had everything you would need. I did buy and make coffee each morning and the two fridges - one for food one for beer :-) is a nice touch.

Other nice touches - the bottle of wine for our arrival, CeCe the manager is AMAZING!!! Also the bins of water toys, and other games and books in the condo! If you are travelling with really little kids we noticed a car seat and a pack and play in the closet!!

The only improvement I could make is the house needs new pillows - but that's so minor. We have actually bought and brought our own on previous trips and would do it again if we stayed here.

We are already talking about when we can go back. We did stay 2 weeks in PoMo - 1 week here and 1 week at a different location without at pool. If you are travelling with children stop looking just book here - the location and pool are perfect for families.

Thanks for a wonderful stay!!!!

Absolutely nothing we wanted or needed, this place has it all!! I put a lot of research into finding a place that would accommodate our family (two boys 14 and 11) and would stay here again in a heartbeat. The condo was immaculate, kitchen had everything you could think of and very pretty to look at as well. All appliances are very new and well taken care of (thanks for having a coffee grinder). Since we took the kids we did a lot of cooking to cut down on cost and enjoyed it with such a great kitchen. Bedrooms are nice and comfy and have extra blankets etc. There is plenty of storage with big closets and dressers. The view from the front room is the best and I miss looking at the pool with the ocean in the background. I do believe this has to be one of the best if not the best unit there. The grounds at Playasol are the best of any we saw!

This location is close enough to everything, yet far enough so you can relax. Nice to have Ojo De Auga right next door to take advantage of their happy hour and food. We also didn’t find a bad place to eat in town. We so enjoyed walking to town to the store and look around almost every day. The store had most of what we needed, I would recommend a stop at Walmart to save money and get items you recognize if you are doing a lot of cooking.

The beach is great, you can walk forever. I snorkeled about every morning and took a trip out to the reef with the kids. My husband found a good dive shop if that is what you are looking for.

The book was very helpful as well as Cici!! She does great at her job and was always around if needed. If you are looking for rest and relaxation, this is a place for you (PM) if you want a faster pace and need entertained then keep looking. It was nice to take a few day trips, but so nice to return home to the PM and the condo where things are at a slower pace!! Thank you for great family memories and a great vacation, we will be back and have told many about this place! ;)

The only negative was the condo above us really needed pads on the bottom of their chairs. They had little kids that would push them around early in the morning when my kids wanted to sleep in.

Simply perfect...

  • 5 of 5

As veteran Puerto Morelos visitors, we have stayed in many different places in this wonderful little village. Our stay at Villas Playasol topped the charts. Greeted immediately as we entered the gates, we were shown to the condo where a bottle of wine waited to be opened...and it didn't take us long! Relaxation started immediately and continued throughout our stay. The weather was warm and it rained off and on, but it mattered little - because the condo was so comfortable for us to just hang out in...and we did lots of that. The kitchen was great and we used it every day. It was well-equipped and met our every need. The grounds of Villas Playasol are lovely to walk through as you head to the beach. The staff there are all friendly and helpful. It was nice to have games and music for those rainy moments when we couldn't be out enjoying the beauty of Puerto Morelos. The TV never got turned out...not on vacation!!! Prior to our visit, contact with Mike was easy and he was prompt in responding to questions and in confirming the reservation. There is never a question whether we'll return to PM time and again...the only question has always been where to stay...and it's been really fun trying different places. But this one fit the bill in every way, and we hope to return next year. Thanks!!

Paradise in Puerto Morelos

  • 5 of 5

Villa Playasol (and especially our unit) far exceeded our expectations! Very well appointed, friendly, efficient staff, and beautifully maintained grounds - an absolute delight. Our 8 year old grand daughter was in heaven, being able to literally walk out the door of our unit and jump into the pool! The recent remodel of our unit, including top quality appliances, made cooking in our cozy kitchen a breeze. The beach, just a 2 minute walk from our door, was clean and well maintained, and the water was safe, clean and warm. We'll be back!

Condo in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was so spacious and felt like a home. The pool is just a step or two from the patio and the beach is just a few steps past that. It was very convenient to town and restaurants and the lush flora around the condo was great. I would recomend this piece of paradise to anyone. The condo is 15 mins from the airport so you can get to Playasol quickly. Snorkel everyday in one of the most beautiful parts of the ocean in the world. We will visit again. Thanks so much.

Best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay in Puerto Morales and it was perfect in every way! We loved the condo! It was great being on the ground floor & being able to walk right out to the pool and beach area. The location of the condo was perfect being on the beach and also in town. We easily walked to get something to eat and drink or to shop. The beach area was one of the best that we have experienced in Mexico. We have traveled to Mexico for about eight years to different locations each time and always stayed at an all inclusive resort. After our experience here I do not think we will ever do an all inclusive resort again. If you are looking for a wild party place this is not the place for you. My husband and I stayed here with our daughter and her husband who are in their mid 20's and all four of us fell in love with the place. We consider it one of the best kept secrets in Mexico!!!

The condominium complex of Villas Playasol in Puerto Morelos is very centrally located on the Mayan Riviera. It offers a very rich diversity of activities within the village as well as up and down the coast of the Yucatan. A leisurely 2 block stroll (beach side or street side) takes you into the charming village which has a wonderful assortment of ethnic restaurants and cantinas as well as Internet shops, a bake shop, espresso bar, fresh fish market, grocery store, ATM machines, liquor store, pharmacy, laundromat, travel agency and many wonderful artisan shops. The Town Square hosts many local events which celebrate the special holidays of the Mexican and Maya people. (For the most part the area is bilingual, both Spanish and English are spoken.) Start your day off by watching the sunrise over the water and then take a long walk or jog on the endless stretch of beach. Take a lesson on a wind surfer, arrange a fishing, snorkel or scuba excursion.
