About louis connors

We purchased our property to build a vacation home and for investment. We are 25 minutes to Cancun International Airport, so we can easily get to anyplace in the world. From most of the northern major cities of the USA and CANADA, we can be here sitting on the front porch having a martini, before someone else can get thru the airport at their destination in Florida. Flight time from New York to Cancun is one hour longer than getting to Miami. The entire Mayan Riviera coast is still growing, so it's a great place to live, and play. We LOVE to shop, and this is a shoppers paradise.

Why louis connors chose Quintana Roo

We really enjoy the tranquility of the Puerto Morelos area and the location is so central to everything going on in the Riviera Maya. Always a sea breeze blowing thru the windows all year round, and you can hear the sound of the surf, or just sit on the porch and watch the pelicans and seagulls fly overhead and swoop in for fish. We have a nice social life, as there are many other english speakers around, from many places, as well as our latin and european friends. We dine with friends frequently, and there is always a new or unique place to try some different cuisine, whether it's at a friends home or party, or in a restaurant specializing in food from another country, which there are plenty of all over the area. There is always some new activity, or festival somewhere. We love to beachwalk, and we meet many people from all over the world who come here for vacation and we get into some very interesting conersations. We love to sit on the oceanfront balcony and just people watch, or swim in the ocean, or in our own private pool, or quietly read in a gently swinging hammock, and listen to music, while mellowing out with the sounds of the sea. We also go to the sidewalk cafes alot for a drink and a chat, and there are loads of them too, in every city and town. There is plenty to see and plenty to do. There is something for everyone here. And then there are the markets. Another bonanza!

What makes this villa unique

Our location is perfect. Everybody wants to shop, or see the sights. More and more repeat guests that have stayed in places like Akumal, Tankah, or Tulum on previous vacations decide to stay with us when they return. 25 minutes from the airport, instead of a 1 -2 hour drive from the airport each way is important. You have to check in at the airport 3 hours ahead of time for international flights these days which means the trip arriving or leaving can take up most of your day. Also, being in the middle of the tourist corridor allows easy access to all the destinations and attractions on offer. More time enjoying things, and less time getting there and getting back.

Excellent Private Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Casa Coco Mani. It is a great location - beautiful and private. We were greeted with cocktails by Louis, the property manager, and his wife Anna. They were really helpful in getting us oriented and gave great advice on the local restaurants. And at the end of our week, Anna gave us freshly baked cake as a parting gift. Neddie and Elma (spelling?) kept the gardens and house pristine and more. They surprised us with some delicious guacamole and fresh coconut drinks cut from the trees on the property.

We enjoyed the Croco Cun Zoo where the tours are in small groups and the place is oriented towards rescue. Our other recommended local trip was snorkeling on the reef off Puerto Morelos. You are taken out on a boat and snorkel with a guide. All equipment is provided and the cost is only 500 pesos per person.

Turning to some practical advice, you do need a car as the center of Puerto Morelos is a couple of miles away, as is the local supermarket (Chedraui). We have T-Mobile in the USA which provides free mobile phone and data service in Mexico and we used this quite successfully.

In summary, this is a beautiful hideaway. We recommend it.

Beautiful, Exotic and Relaxing Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 and I just spent a delightful summer vacation at this home and it was wonderful. We thought it may be hot because it was August in the tropics, and were pleasantly surprised that there was a nice breeze coming off the ocean everyday. The water temperature both in the pool and in the ocean was just right. We sat on the porch and watched the ships passing far out at sea, and played on what seemed our own private beach. Even though there were other people in residence, there are few on the beach at any given time. Antonio the caretaker, cut and opened fresh coconuts for us, and we put rum and spices in them, and drank our own version of authentic pina colladas. That was a first for all of us. The house was the cleanest beach house we ever rented, and the oceanfront garden was a delight. We grilled lunch several times right by the ocean, and went out for dinner every night. There are tons of restaurants everywhere you go. A week was not enough time. We'll be back!

Nice beach front property near Puerto Morelos

  • 5 of 5

At arrival we received a large bowl of fresh, tropical fruit and the children received several times coconuts from the many palm trees on the property. Louis, the manager, provided us with useful information about the area and even gave us a tour of the surrounding area. The house is well located on the beach and it takes only about a 10 minutes drive to reach Puerto Morelos. The two care takers did a very through job on keeping both the interior of the house and the space around it perfectly clean. The house has all the amenities needed for a relaxing vacation. We highly recommend this property for a vacation on Riviera Maya.

Beautiful place to get away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

Louis and Anna greeted us and made sure we knew where the store was. Nerry and Telma take good care of the pool and grounds. Clean spacious house with the sound of the waves. This was a nice family vacation.

We LOVED our Wonderful, Relaxing vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation renting a private accommodation. We have done all inclusive vacations for over 20 years and I can't beleive we have been missing out on this wonderful experience.

The evening we arrived Louis and Ana were waiting for us and gave us a thorough walk through the house and let us know that if we required anything at all we could contact Neddie and it would be taken care of. The initial walk through was very helpful indeed. As were the marguritas upon arrival and the enormous fruit basket that was made up for us. That was most enjoyable and we made use of every last piece of fruit in it throughout our stay. Thank you Louis and Ana!!!!

The pictures on the web site do not do the house/property justice. It was alot more spacious than we thought.More than ample for our group of 5. It was just perfect.

We had a rental car so did some road trips. One day in Akumel, that was a great day but we are finding Akumel Beach is getting so busy now. We spent alot of time in Puerto Morelos.What a fabulous little town, we fell in love with it and will be back for sure. We bought alot of fish from the fish store. Get there for 3 when the boats come in and you will have the most amazing fresh fish ever!! We had it grilled one night and did fish tacos another day. so good!!!

The only little things I can see for improvement would be some newer towels for the house. Both bath and kitchen towels. We did alot of our own cooking and I'm guessing alot of folks go out for the most part but our group had alot of excellant cooks so we bought local and had a great time preparing and enjoying our meals. We used the charcoal grill various times for chicken, steak and lobster and fish. Just excellent. Some newer knives and cutlery would be a nice addition in the kitchen.

The other thing that might be useful for guests is a hard copy schedule that indicates the housecleaning duties. What does/doesn't fall under Thelma's duties? We were always unsure of what Thelma's duties were and when she would be doing them.Could we ask her to do up the dishes or give the floor an extra sweep for a few dollars..? We weren't sure what the scope of her duties were.

Speaking of Thelma and Neddie.....they are absolutely the sweetest pair. We enjoyed them immensely and they were more than helpful. Casa Coco Mani can rest easy knowing that these two are there and will do anything to make their guests' stay enjoyable.

We are still pinching ourselves from this amazing vacation.

Owner's Response: Another wonderful group of guests that took advantage of the area and "went local" for the time they were here. A very nice family,happy to be here, and easy to host. We hope they return again next season. For clarification, we do check our dishes, towels, utensils, bedding, etc. on a regular basis, and review what needs to be replaced at the end of every season.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa Coco Mani! We are a family of four so the house was plenty of space for us. It could easily accommodate more people. We really felt at home and had a great vacation. Typically we do a lot when on vacation but this time we were looking for a more relaxed vacation and found the perfect place to spend our time. The property is even better than the pictures you see in the property listing. We spent a lot of time on the beach and swimming, in the pool and on the roof top deck. Our first night there we were on the roof top deck checking out the stars and the many cruise ships passing by. We were greeted by Louis and Ana with Margaritas and a large bowl of fresh fruit. They went through the house with explained anything we would need to know. They brought us into town and gave us a good overview of the area and good recommendations for for activities and food. Louis also gave us good information on getting the packer game on TV or where to go our to watch it so my husband did not miss the game. They were great hosts! We were also well cared for by Neddy and Selma. Neddy cut down and prepared fresh coconuts for us to sample. Selma brought us fresh guacamole that was the best we ever had! The kitchen had all we needed to cook meals and we had a nice mixture of dinners in and eating out. My girls and I had massages at the Jungle Spa. It was truly a treat. The prices were great, the massages well done and the setting is very unique. I would love to come back again. We truly came back relaxed and refreshed. It is truly a special paradise!

Owner's Response: This family was a pleasure to host, and they validate what we are trying to accomplish for each and every guest. Though we still had some unseasonably ankle deep waves coming in, due to winds, they ran thru the surf undaunted, and enjoyed their ocean swims in front of the house, and had the advantage to watch the kite surfers do their ballet, which only happens during weather like that.They also took advantage of local things they wanted to do while here, and as you can read had a nice vacation. The winds are now gone until the next time, and the kite surfers too. The ocean is back to normal, local fishing boats are back out, and life goes on. We look forward to these folks returning again someday.
