Turtle Hideaway is located on the Mayan Riviera 20 minutes south of the Cancun airport and about 20 minutes north of Playa Del Carmen. It is tucked away near one of the most beautiful and remote beaches on the entire Yucatan. You will relax in the totally private seclusion this area offers.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted by the manager of Sandy's Villas who will take care of all of your needs during your stay. Bottled water is provided for the duration of your stay.
The 2 bedrooms have luxurious king-sized beds and the living room has a double-sized futon. There are patios on both floors with chairs for relaxing; the upstairs patio has a hammock for catching a few zzz's whenever you feel like it. The fully equipped kitchen and ceiling fans will make your stay convenient and comfortable. There is a TV and DVD player for entertainment in the living room. We provide all bath and beach towels, as well as bed linens. A large swimming pool graces the grounds where lush green grass, tropical flowers and palm and banana trees abound.
A spiral staircase leads up to the 2nd floor and then on to your private rooftop where a 360 degree view allows you to lie back on your lounge chair, work on your tan and view the spectacular sunrises and sunsets across the magnificent Caribbean Sea as the surf pounds and echoes up to your rooftop retreat.
The small fishing village of Puerto Morelos is a 10 minute drive north. There you will find a grocery store, dive shops, a pharmacy, wonderful restaurants, a pizza place, and fishing and snorkeling excursions. The Mayan Reef at Puerto Morelos is the second largest barrier reef in the world with some of the best snorkeling to be found. Enjoy the quaint town square where the locals sell their wares and children play in the park.
You can walk the powdery white sand at Playa Secreto for miles, gathering lovely shells and playing in the 85 degree turquoise surf and probably not run into more than a handful of other beachcombers. Beach chairs are provided for your relaxation pleasure surfside.
Turtle Hideaway will fulfill your every vacation fantasy as you relax and unwind on the magical, serene Playa Secreto. Enjoy!

Jeff Epperson purchased this villa in 2006
We stumbled upon Turtle Hideaway when looking for a vacation spot, and became the proud owners within a year. We love the area - the beach is beautiful and we normally have it to ourselves, and the grounds and pool at the villa are very inviting and relaxing. Turtle Hideaway is convenient to the Cancun airport, Cancun itself and Playa del Carmen. Puerto Morelos is only 10 minutes away - it's a lovely little town with much to offer for recreation, shopping and dining.
There are many things that we like to do when staying at Turtle Hideaway - snorkeling at the reef in Puerto Morelos, swimming at nearby cenotes, day trips to the water parks Xel-Ha and Xcaret, visiting the ruins in Tulum, golf at one of the many nearby courses, dining and shopping in Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen, and occasionally the nightlife in Playa del Carmen or Cancun.
Our family had a fabulous time at Casa Secreto, and we are grateful to Rhonda and Chuck (on site property managers) and all the wonderful care they put into the place, and into making our stay so relaxing and fun.
We look forward to seeing them when we come again sometime in the future!
Three of us stayed here for six days. What a wonderful place! The location is fantastic, quiet, but close to Puerto Morelos, and Playa Del Carmen. The walk to the beach is short, and we often had the beach to ourselves. The house is well equipped, very nicely decorated, bright and airy. We never wanted for anything. Hilberto was a fantastic help, he brought water and checked in nearly every day. He was friendly and taught us some spanish, and learned some english from us. The grounds were very well kept and lovely, with a nice pool, outdoor shower, and barbeque area. Every day and night we spent time on the rooftop patio overlooking the jungle. We did have a car, which was necessary and allowed us to explore at our leisure. We hope to return to this place in the future. I can't say enough good things about the place or our stay.
We really enjoyed our stay, the location is beautiful and the beach is quiet. The two bedroom villa was more than adequate for 4 adults and two children. Good location for family with small children who enjoy pool and beach. Keep in mind you really need a car for shopping and eating out. However, Puerto Morelos is only 9 km away and offers lots of choice in restaurants with reasonable prices.
The villa is an ideal place if you want to relax, enjoy family time and do not mind to be a bit isolated. It is called Playa del Secreto after all.
Just came home from 12 wonderful nights at Playa del secreto, what a beautiful setting, everything you need for cooking and grilling, the two boy's loved the pool and the beach for boggy boarding, there are day's you have the beach all to your self, you do need a car, cause playa del carmen is about 25 to 30 miles away and puerto morelos is 15 miles the other way. There was four adults and the two young boys, so we did alot of exploring, we love puerto morelos. Hope to be back someday. Robeito was so helpful he made sure we had plenty of bottle water, love talking with him.
Warm wind's.... Sunny Sky's.....
This was my 6th holiday here and I absolutely LOVE it! The location is perfect, being in between Puerto Morelos (a quaint fishing village) and Playa del Carmen (a shopping and party paradise). The quiet beach with it's golden sands and azure sea is just a short walk from Casa Secreto, which by the way is gated, so you always feel safe. The huge turtles that come up on the beach to lay their eggs is a sight never to be forgotten. The house itself is very comfortable with three full bathrooms and the grounds are a tropical oasis, with it's swimming pool, palm trees and spongy grass. So whatever you are looking for, this place can offer everything just a short car ride away, from snorkeling, to paragliding, to partying, or just a quiet, relaxing, romantic getaway, this is THE place to be!
My husband I arrived late after a flight delay and picking up the rental car, Chuck and Rhonda were extremely helpful and patient with our late arrival ( in the rain). The casa was wonderful clean and more than meeting our expectations, providing all of the comforts of home. The location was perfect secluded but close enough to run into town for grocerys, approx 10 minutes to Playa del Carmen were there was a Walmart and Mega grocery stores to purchase food and beverages for the casa. Puerto Morelos was approx 5 minute drive with wonderful shops restaunts and locals that provide great snorkeling. Access to playa secreto was wonderful and the beach beyond beautiful and secluded many times we were the only 2 one the beach. The pool and grill were a great treat. This was the perfect relaxing get a way.
Sandy's Villas was a delight! Rhonda and Chuck were very helpful. The beach was beautiful. The guards were pleasant. The birds were abundant and diverse. Casa Secreto was very pleasant. We enjoyed our stay there so much we hated to leave. You do need a car but we rented one anyway so that we could travel to nearby sites. This location is very convenient yet very private. Near Puerto Morelos, Playa del Carmen and easy access to Tulum or any of the Eco parks along HWY 307.
Awesome water parks are within an hours drive south, and the ruins at Tulum are relatively close by as well.
