Puerto Morelos has been designated National Reef Park because of it's efforts to preserve the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere and the second largest in the world.

Puerto Morelos is the gateway to the Mayan Riviera where it's possible to satisfy the Indiana Jones in you at many ancient Mayan archeology sites. These Mexican treasures include Chichen Itza, Tulum, El Rey, Coba, Muyil, and Uxmal just to mention a few. All along the Riviera Maya are the beautiful Cenotes where picnicking, snorkeling, diving, and nature walks are a special and unique experience for the foreign tourist and native Mexican alike.

There are also several large Eco Parks which are magical places to learn about local flora, fauna, and ancient and mysterious cultures -- or just plain relax in the tropical climate under a coconut palm with your favorite refreshment in hand. There is so much to see, experience, and learn about that you will want to return again and again. Our goal and mission at The Mermaid is to have every guest return home with stories of wonder and adventure, proclaiming it to be their best vacation ever.

About Jeannie

My favorite thing to do is 'go on vacation'. The way that I have found to always 'go on vacation is to own the vacation Home.

Jeannie purchased this house in 2003

Why Jeannie chose Quintana Roo

The very first time I arrived in Puerto Morelos, I knew I would soon live here. I love the quaintness of the town, the charm of the people,the closeness of a small community where everyone helps everyone. Its like living on an Island.

What makes this house unique

Some of my favorite things in Puerto Morelos at Casa Mermaid is the beach and the pool, outstanding. The snorkeling at the reef or just along the shore, crystal clear water of the Caribbean Coast. I love to go to town on Wed morning when the fresh produce street market is open. I get to see friends new and old and I bet to buy all organic veggies, home made fresh cheese & herbs. Then every day but Sunday the fishing boats come in at 3PM, you can go right to the pier and purchase a fish, they will clean and filet it for you, and they always have a recipe for you.You must check out THE LITTLE MEXICAN COOKING SCHOOL just 2 doors down. Cat the Owner has the cutest Gift Shop and SUNDAY BRUNCH is excellent . You may need reservations. There are so many great things to do I never run out of new places and things to explore. In winter there is a different Festival in the square every weekend. One more thing I love, Full Moon Bonfire on the Beach. You have to find it, it keeps moving, but it is there all night long!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We went to Puerto Morelos in December and it was one of the best

vacations we have ever had as a family. We were 5 adults and 3

children, (ages 4,5, & 8). We had plenty of space. My husband and I

had the one of the king bedrooms (with a bathroom across from it) on

the main floor, our two children shared the other king bedroom on the

main floor (with an ensuite). Our friends had the upstairs bedrooms

which both had ensuite bathrooms so everyone had their own private

bathroom. The veranda on the top floor provided and unobstructed view

of the beach. We had breakfast there every morning and watched the

beach. What a wonderful way to start the day.



The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you can imagine (yes, a

dishwasher). The only thing we brought was our stove top espresso

machine and food. Travelling with kids we have found it is always

better to have things you know they will eat. We all sat together for

each meal. I think you will have space. The local restaurants were

great also. We loved all of them. In the evenings alot of the

children would gather in the town square and play soccer or simply

play in the playground.



There was no road noise. The town basically shuts down around 10:00pm

and before that there isn't much going on. Perfect for families with

small children.



We loved the fact that we had our own private accommodation with a

pool. No sharing with anyone. The kids would get up each day and go

swimming (as soon as I could get some cheerios in them) for hours it

seemed. We also went swimming after dinner on some evenings!! I highly

recommend that you take life vests for the kids. We felt better

knowing that if for any reason they slipped into the pool, they were

safe. Jimmy, the caretaker, came every day to see that the pool was

running smoothly. He was also a great resource and very friendly.



We loved the town and have recommended Casa Mermaid to all of our

friends!!! It isn't a luxurious hotel, but more of a family home.

There was even videos for the kids to watch, which surprisingly did

come in handy. They loved the Little Rascals!!! If your looking for a

more quiet off the beaten path sort of vacation then this is the place

for you. There were plenty of towels which was great. Jeannie even let

us use her computer to check email etc. We used is everyday. It came

in very handy when we wanted to do research for day trips. There were

alot of travel books in the living room as well magazines a

Hi Jeannie,

We had the best vacation of our lives. Our children

are still talking about it 9 months later!! Jimmy was

wonderful and very helpful. Casa Mermaid was

clean, and very well kept. Being across the street

from the beach with an unobstructed view was

great. We can't wait to come back.

Convenient Location...A Follow Up Note

  • 4 of 5

After my initial review, the property owner contacted me and assured me that she is continously seeking ways to improve the clients' experince.

She provided me with a detailed list of the property improvements that she has done so far or is palnning to do in the near future. I am satisfied with her response and will gladly return to her property for another vacation.

Convenient Location

Pros:

The house is approximately 100 yards away from the beach-

the pool is well maintained and is a plus for familes with kids- Gorgeous View- Aircondition was efficient Cons: The house is not well maintained (some door hinges and doors were broken, construction material and broken glasses were on one corner of the front yard)- The house had been cleaned only minimally (dust and cooking oil residue on the kitchenware and some furniture)... The owner is either very busy or does not take pride of her rental property...During our week long stay nobody from the management came and asked whether we need anything or asked for our feedback

Love Casa Mermaid & Puerto Morelos

  • 4 of 5

My multi-generational family spent a week at Casa Mermaid. We experienced a tropical storm but the house is so comfortable and has so many different living areas, it never felt crowded. We liked the view from the upstairs deck and ate there most meals.

The house is clean and the pool is lovely. The enclosed front yard felt safe and secluded. The beach is across the street through an empty lot, but very close.

We walked to the town square every day and ate out most dinners.

Don't miss Tacos.com on Rojo Gomez, El Pesquero (excellent!) or Al Chimichurri (crowded but fun)

Fabulous vacation rental home!

  • 5 of 5

After much research, I chose Casa Mermaid as a one week vacation rental for my family (8 of us ranging in ages from 27 to 62). The small, peaceful town was very welcoming after day trips to Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. Puerto Morelos is a place that you can really relax. The house is located on a quiet street within walking distance to the beach and everything in the town.

The house is clean with high quality, mostly imported furnishings. Tasteful decorations give it a comfortable, homey feel. The kitchen is impressively stocked with any appliance or utensil you might need. We especially enjoyed the breeze and ocean view while sitting around the large table on the balcony.

The owner was very attentive and clearly keeps the property well maintained. The online description is accurate. I would definitely recommend this rental to friends and family. All 8 of us really enjoyed our stay at Casa Mermaid.

Thank you for providing such a great place!

Outstanding family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a formal, stuffy, get dressed up for dinner every night type vacation then don’t even think about Casa Mermaid. However, if you are looking for a place for a family reunion, girls/guys vacation, couples get away or anything similar then you will enjoy Casa Mermaid. We are a group of hardworking female doctors in the final year of our residency and we wanted a private home with a pool close to the ocean and near Cancun but not in Cancun. We wanted fishing, snorkeling, swimming, sunning and most of all privacy. We got all this and more. C. Mermaid was clean, well equipped with a private bathroom in each of the 4 bedrooms. There were plenty of nice linens, towels, pots, pans and everything we needed for cooking. Fresh water was delivered and maid service was available as well as a private cook we hired for a party on the veranda upstairs. The house itself is fun and whimsical with its array of mermaids and interesting objects d’art. Our morning rounds consisted of waking to the sound of the palm trees blowing against the bedroom window, jumping into the crystal clear private pool, and eating breakfast poolside with friends. Any questions we had were immediately answered by the accommodating owner, Jeannie, who couldn’t be nicer. This was so much better than hanging out with high school and college students roughing it up on Cancun beaches. If you want a real vacation in a family home, with plenty of privacy, then allow me to recommend Casa Mermaid. By the way, we thoroughly checked and compared prices. No resort, hotel or private home could beat the price we paid for 6 of us to spend a week at Casa Mermaid.
