Great Whole House Rental

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend 10 days!

There were 6 of us and everyone had their own space. Our older daughter enjoyed the privacy of the 3rd floor efficiency, teenagers enjoyed having their own kitchen for late nite snacks, and the adults enjoyed the flow of the main floor with full kitchen and dining area which was great for all of us to enjoy our meals together.

The location of this house is excellent, basically on the beach! Within easy walking distance into town, either on the street or on the beach. You can also take the "collectivo" (local bus) into town for $5 pesos. We enjoyed taking morning walks on the beach and evening walks through the neighborhood.

Communication with Colin was excellent as we booked only 2 weeks prior to our arrival. His responses were always prompt and when we firmed up our reservation he provided lots of information about the house and Puerto Morelos. Claudia was an excellent choice for them to use as a manager for this property. She met us promptly at the house at our arrival, she provided information about the area and booked our tours. She also provided information on local car and bike rental as well as setting them up. She was always available and responded promptly to our questions or needs.

casa bandidos in puerto morelos. The best ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great house with excellent views. Right on the beach and walking distance to bars and restaurants. no need for a car here. Fifteen minute ride to cancun and twenty minute ride to playa. Great owners and management. We have been to PM several times and new this place was going to be wonderful. The three floors accomadated our needs perfectly. Soon as you walk out the door you are on the beach and oh ya the bar is even closer!! Colin and Lauri did a great job. Already booked the whole house again for next year. Thanks for the greatest place to stay in PM.

Rest and relaxation Ahhh!

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed two weeks at Casa Bandidos in the quaint friendly town of Puerto Morelos. We stayed on the second floor..with an amazing huge (28ft. X 10 ft.) covered deck. We really enjoyed most of our time out there..with an unobstructed view of the beach and the Pelicans cruising by. The snorkeling was terrific straight out from the house. We saw spotted eagle rays three times, turtles, and a vast variety of beautiful fish on the coral heads . We were fortunate to meet the owners while we were there. Colin and Laurie are wonderful hosts, wanting their guests to enjoy a perfect vacation..and we did! I posted some videos on their FaceBook page..Casa Bandidos, with their permission. We booked again for next year to bring more family with us. Rent one floor, or the entire house...equally enjoyable. Thanks, Laurie and Colin!

Amazing property, amazing beach, perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I traveled to Puerto Morelos for new years with my whole family. There were 9 of us that stayed at Casa Bandidos. the way the house is separated into 3 levels made it perfect to have the whole family there but still have our privacy. The ground floor had my two grand parents and my brother. It was really nice that they had a full kitchen and easy access for them so they didn't have to travel up to the other floors if they didn't want to. They absolutely enjoyed their time. On the second floor stayed my parents. This is where we spent most of the time together. Lots of space, a full kitchen, beautiful deck that you can sit and stare at the beach as long as you want. My husband, two daughters (4 months and 2.5 years) stayed on the top level. there was plenty room for a blow up bed and the play pen which they had down there for us to use so we didn't have to bring our own. The top level is to die for. you have an amazing roof top with lounge chairs, hot tub and dining table. We spent a lot of time up there. There wasn't anything we needed that we didn't have right at our finger tips. We also loved that there is now a good sized grocery store just a short cab ride away. We were able to go shopping and get every thing we needed for the trip ( even diapers and wipes). You are also just about three blocks from town square so you an easily go shopping or out for food. Casa Bandidos also has a blow up tub for bathing the babies and a portable highchair that is fabric with buckles so we didn't have to worry about our little girl falling. You are just steps from the beach which is beautiful but if you aren't feeling up to the beach they have a wonderful private pool with lounge chairs right there. we spent a lot of time splashing around having fun. We loved the vacation so much we have already re-booked for another trip. We highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to enjoy the small town feel with the luxury of a brand new property. Also we had very good communication with the home owners, it was a very easy process. they even have binders on every level to help out with any questions you might have with the house or town. Cant wait to go back!!

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely large home!

Our family meets from all over the country to spend Christmas week together in the sun. In the past we have been to various all-inclusive resorts in various locations in Mexico and this is the first year we decided to rent a house instead. This brand new house ON THE BEACH is large enough to accommodate the togetherness of eight adults and still provide enough private space to spend time alone. We loved the private pool and the constant breeze throughout the house. The house is well designed and equipped and we had every breakfast and lunch at home. Right next to the house is "My Paradise Beach Bar" and they have a happy hour each afternoon with half priced drinks! It took us a couple of days to go but then we spent every afternoon on the swings drinking frozen tropical drinks. The owners were incredibly easy to work with and the rental included two different days of housekeeping, a rental manager that stopped by most days to make sure all was well, and a pool man that also showed up every day to test the pool water. The wifi and cable TV throughout the house was a plus for after dinner. Finally, the bath and beach towels were soft and the beds were very comfortable. This house is beautiful and I highly recommend renting it for your vacation. You will arrive back home very relaxed and ready to reserve it again (as we have for next Christmas)!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We have spent Christmas at Casa Bandidos twice and have had wonderful times on both occasions. The great experience starts from first contact with Colin and Laurie. They are incredible to deal with, making sure that our time at the condo was as pleasurable as possible. The condo itself is beautiful, clean and best of all steps from the beach. The condo complex itself is wonderful; quiet, private and well maintained. The grounds feature great flowers, an excellent courtyard with a small clean pool and a hot tub for late night relaxation.

The balconies in the condo offer a great view of the beach which is incredible, wide and with white sand. Even at its' busiest, the beach has tons of room. The condo complex has chairs and umbrellas for use so you never have to worry about a place to sit. The water is everything you want when getting away for a vacation; calm, clear and inviting.

The village of Puerto Morelos is great, with town square only a short 5-10 minute walk from the condo depending if you go through town or stroll down the beach. Once there everything you need will greet you. A myriad of restaurants circle the square and more are waiting just down the roads leading into the square. A couple of our favourites are Los Gauchos (the empanadas are tremendous) and Cantina Habaneros, conveniently located on the walk from town to the condo for burgers and late night live entertainment. The best part about it is that when you go down to Puerto Morelos you will discover your own favourites.

The grocery store in town has fresh fruit and veggies, bread and they even sell cold beer, or so I am told.

Taxis and collectivos (vans) are available for travel around the area, there are highway buses to take you into Playa Del Carmen or down to Talum or other attractions nearby.

All told we could not be happier with Casa Bandidos, our family's little slice of heaven. We are looking forward to taking up residence Christmas 2014 and sincerely thank Colin and Laurie for sharing their condo with us.
