About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This serene oceanfront, ground-floor condo is located at the quiet north end of the quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos, in the Mayan Caribbean. Enter the tropical garden courtyard of your Casita Blanca condo, with its wild orchids, birds of paradise, banana trees, and coconut palms. The buildings and gardens are designed with lots of Mexican flair. Your living room and private patio overlook the sparkling pool and the calm, turquoise ocean just steps away. Walk out the sliders onto the fine white sandy beach that is never hot, and into the warm sea, or head out in a sea-kayak. Lie in your hammock and dream, or sit on the lounge chairs under a palm-frond palapa and watch gentle waves breaking over the renowned Great Barrier Reef, which offers outstanding snorkeling, diving and kite-surfing opportunities. Go fishing or tour the reef in a glass-bottom boat. Take a guided tour of the jungle by ATV, take a zipline from treetop to treetop, and swim in the warm, clear cenotes. Walk along the beach to the local markets and excellent traditional Mexican and international restaurants at the town square. (Ask me for recommendations!) Visit the pier to see the fishing boats and the pelicans soaring in formation and diving into the sea for fish. Take a short drive along the coast to bustling Cancun or Playa Del Carmen, or venture to the magnificent Mayan ruins and many theme and zoological parks in the area.

This bright, breezy unit offers one large bedroom with one queen-size bed with Sealy mattress and box spring, and two twin beds; plus a double futon in the living room for additional guests. The kitchen is fully equipped, and the living/dining room has WiFi for your convenience. There are ceiling fans and dual zone air-conditioning to keep you cool. The bathroom is decorated with Mexican Talavera tile. The property manager speaks English well and will graciously assist you. Drinking water included and maid service provided twice each week.

Entries to the complex, the unit, and the beach are ramped for wheelchair access; and the unit has a walk-in shower.

Come experience the magic of this friendly fishing village hidden on the Caribbean coast, only 20 minutes from the Cancun airport. I am happy to send you additional photos. Call now for availability and special rates. I accept Paypal.

About Lauren

I live in upstate New York, in a Victorian house I saved from the wrecking ball, but haven't yet restored to its original glory, it's a work in progress, and some part of it always seems to be a work site. I rented this condo during a personal vacation 3 years ago, and my partner and I fell in love with it; she bought it and I've now bought it from her. This is my first real estate venture outside the U.S.

Lauren purchased this condo in 2009

What makes this condo unique

When I stay at my condo, I usually spend most of my time improving it, but I keep hoping there will be time to lie in the hammock on the patio and simply soak up the warm moist sea breeze and watch the pelicans. It's also fun haggling in my very basic Spanish with shopkeepers on the village square (sometimes my lack of language skills results in unplanned humor!), snorkeling at the amazing reef, and taking day trips to nearby ancient ruins. On the village square, I always stop to say hi at Alma Libre, a most helpful bookstore run by Canadians; and at the Artesans' market and the women's jungle market, to buy traditional Mayan crafts from the artists who make them. A short drive or bus ride south takes me to a Mexican (Talavera) tile warehouse, where they are skilled at packing delicate hand-painted ceramics in underseat-sized boxes; and to the elegant seaside pedestrian mall in Playa del Carmen. My local rental managers can tell you the best way to get around.

a great place to stay, perfect for the two of us

  • 5 of 5

We dropped our bags and opened the curtains to take in the view: sunshine, palm trees and blue water. Oh yeah. The condo was decorated with lots of local art and fabrics, kitchen had everything necessary to make a meal. A big jug of water on a stand.....Hallelujah! We don't have to lug 110# of water!!! (ok, just a bit of an exagration, but those dang bottles are heavy!) The whole place was immaculate, the towels were big lengths of thick terry, the shower had hot water, queen bed was quite comfortable. The grounds are immaculately kept by Cesar, he works constantly! Also, much appreciated, was the WIFI booster in the room. We had good service in the room and out on the patio when other residents were complaining of spotty service. We had a good time here and would come again.

Casita Blanca B2

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in a number of condos at Casita Blanca and have never been disappointed. C2 has beautiful view of the grounds and pool. Which are kept up daily. Beds are comfortable (2singles and one double) in bedroom. The kitchen has adequate plates and utensils but pans should be replaced.

We had no problem securing our key when we arrived. Check out was simple .

Owner was very helpful with making sure everything went smoothly.

Would not hesitate to rent B2 again.

Beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I have been to PuertoMorelos several times. This is a great location& tends to be quiet, which is nice. The condo has everything you need to enjoy the beach. We had bikes delivered& it makes getting to town very easy.This location is near a beach bar, although we had made a trip to the store& had our own beer& wine. Bring your own snorkel, mask & fins & you can snorkel right out front of the condos.

Perfect, quiet week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in PM! This was our third trip to Casita Blanca and we will be back again and again. The condo is just as described, comfortable and clean, with everything you need to prepare a simple meal. The AC worked great, as did the wifi. The grounds are kept impeccable by Ceasar and his staff. The location is ideal because it's a little removed from town (though an easy 10 min walk for anything you need) which keeps it quiet but has an awesome, friendly beach bar right next door for afternoon cocktails. The pool and beach are perfect. We will be back soon I hope!

My husband and I loved our two weeks in Lauren's condo at Casito Blanca. No wonder people return year after year. The condo is spotless, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen has everything necessary for dining in. It was great to have WIFI for my ipad so we could read the New York papers and keep up with Words with Friends. The grounds here are the best we have seen along the beachfront, but all of the work is done without loud machines. The community is perfect for our tastes and interests. We cannot stop talking about our perfect vacation!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your glowing review! It's true, Cesar creates a lush tropical garden paradise using only his machete. Please feel welcome to be among my guests who return year after year!

On the Hudson River in upstate New York

A fabuous seaside condo

  • 5 of 5

Often the description and pictures of a vacation rental lead to expectations that are not quite

matched by the reality when seen. In this instance, however, the actual and extraordinary experience of Lauren's codominium at La Casita Blanca in this old fishing village of Puerto Morales in the Yuctan greatly exceeds expectations. You walk right out of this excellent condo to a gorgeous garden, a modest pool within steps, and a fabulous beach only seconds away. Swimming in the sea (La Mar) every day is exhilirating, walking to the Plaza fun, and the nearby restuarants excellent and inexpensive. We've gone snorkeling at the coral reef, traveled to nearby Mayan ruins and the nearby best beach of all. It's fun too to see the reef and fish in a glass-bottomed boat. The warmth of the physical setting is matched by the warmth and welcoming spirit of the people of Puerto Morales. Don't miss these restaurants:, La Palmeras (both off the Plaza), and El Cruzita (on Ninos Heroes Street), all within walking distance from the condo. In a word, it's all just terrific, one of the best vacations we've ever had. You will not be disappointed.
