About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Walk into this apartment and you will be swept away by the panoramic (180 degrees) views of the turquoise sea, blue skies, white coral sands, distant waves crashing over the barrier reef, palm trees swaying in the breeze, and pelicans and gulls sailing by your third-floor balcony. Standing on the balcony, you will almost believe you are on a cruise ship on the Caribbean Sea. This is Casita Blanca’s prized apartment, thanks to its third-floor corner location, unparalleled views, and spacious 3-bedroom layout!

This condo has been renovated, painted, and furnished with furnishings native to the Yucatán. It is the only apartment in Casita Blanca offering a direct ocean view from the master bedroom, so you can fall asleep listening to the gentle surf or wake up to the rising sun. There is a king-size bed in the master bedroom, a double bed in the second bedroom, and a double futon in the third bed/TV room. The bedrooms have abundant closet space and a safe for your valuables. The renovated kitchen is fully equipped (with filtered water, coffee maker, microwave, tiled countertops, stools, etc.), and the dining area can easily seat six people around the teak table. Step out onto the large balcony, nap in the lounge chair, or just drink in the view. The apartment has Wi-Fi, a CD and DVD player, as well as quality linens and towels, including extra beach towels.

Casita Blanca is a small family-owned complex located directly on the ocean in the charming Mexican fishing village of Puerto Morelos. Enjoy Casita Blanca's beautiful gardens, tiled swimming pool, lounge chairs, palapas, and the fabulous beach where you can swim, kayak, and snorkel. Casita Blanca’s managers, Roberto and Selene, are charming and friendly Spanish- and English-speaking hosts who will assist you with your vacation needs.

A few blocks away is the town of Puerto Morelos, a hidden jewel-of-a-town unspoiled by over-development. You can watch the fishermen come in with their catches at the end of each day, or arrange for first-class diving or snorkeling along the coral reef, a few hundred yards offshore. The town also has very good local restaurants, a grocery store, an English-language bookstore, artisan markets, local spas and yoga classes. Need more action? Its an easy drive north to Cancún or south to Playa del Carmén for shops, crowds, and nightlife. Or, head south along the Riviera Maya to see its famed archaeological sites and ecological parks. There is no end to the delights that await you in this beautiful part of the world!

About Carter Bancroft

My wife and I are both academics, living in the New York City area on Long Island. In 2010, we rented another condo in Casita Blanca, and liked it and Puerto Morelos so much that we bought our present condo there (see more below).

Carter Bancroft purchased this condo in 2010

Why Carter Bancroft chose Puerto Morelos

We rented another unit at Casita Blanca early in 2010, and loved both the quiet fishing village of Puerto Morelos (only a 20 minute drive from Cancun International Airport), and the beautiful, quiet Casita Blanca situated right at the ocean beach. We liked the location of Casita Blanca- only a 10 minute walk to the center of town, but far enough to be on a very quiet part of the beach. While staying at Casita Blanca, we were shown a lovely spacious apartment on the third floor, with its gorgeous panoramic views of the ocean. We fell instantly in love with the apartment, bought it, and renovated and furnished it. We think that you and your family would very much enjoy a stay in our place.

What makes this condo unique

This is indeed a unique apartment- located on the third (top) floor, sunny and spacious with its three bedrooms, bathed by a constant sea breeze, and possessing a gorgeous panoramic ocean view that is the best in Casita Blanca.

My husband and I stayed in this condo, it is more than just a "rental" condo, it is like a comfortable home with good seating in the living area as well as a very comfortable bed and the view from the balcony, living area and bedroom is second to none! We had everything we needed in the kitchen, plenty of glasses, plates, silverware etc and a coffee maker, I did not notice the cookware as we don't cook while there, (so many great restaurants that are within walking distance) The air conditioning was very efficient, we only used it 3 nights because this condo gets wonderful cool ocean breezes all day & night, we also enjoyed the music from Unico (next door) while sitting on the balcony. *Note: condo is on the 3rd floor and no elevator which we are fine with but for some, steps might be an issue. Working with Carter is extremely easy and also knowing that Roberto and his staff (who keep the grounds immaculate!) are onsite is a plus also. This condo is not fancy or new but very clean and comfortable, exactly what we were looking for! Highly recommend!

Paradise on earth

  • 5 of 5

This was easily the best vacation place I have ever been to. You will wake up, open the sliding doors to the balcony and wonder why you live in a city. The perfect breeze all day long, the perfect beach to soak up some rays (with private section for privacy and nice umbrellas), and the perfect town to grab drinks and great food. This town is untouched by obnoxious corporations on every corner -- it's the real deal. If you go into the town, there is a man named Jesus at a travel center that will give you a great deal on fun adventures -- Isla de Mujeres is supposed to be incredible, but they also have ziplines, RV's, etc.

Do yourself a favor -- BOOK NOW.

Best vacation in years!

  • 5 of 5

This gorgeous condo was the perfect place to unwind and warm up after a long New York winter. Nothing beats waking up to the beautiful view of the ocean and hearing the rustling of the palm trees just outside of our window. The condo was immaculately kept and was cleaned multiple times during our stay by the condo's cleaning staff. The unit easily fit our 4 guests and could have accommodated an additional 5th guest on the futon in the 3rd bedroom if needed. Casita Blanca boasts a pool as well as private beach chairs and cabanas that are reserved for guests. This was very convenient as we were always able to find free chairs to lounge in during our time at the condo.

The locations was also great as it is right next door to a trendy beach bar and restaurant call the Unico Beach Club. In addition to the food, which was fantastic and well priced, they also offered snorkeling equipment rentals, outdoor massage services and live music. We typically stopped by most days to grab a drink or a snack and enjoy the atmosphere.

In addition to the beauty and the amenities of this condo, the location, just a ten minute walk to the town centre, was incredibly convenient. The town boasts numerous restaurants, bars, convenience stores, pharmacies and a grocery store that has most of the basic food staples.

All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casita Blanca Condo A5 and are looking forward to coming back again next year.

Casita Blanca Condo 5A - Great view, morning sunrise, nice breeze, short walk to beach, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The condo was in a great location - walking distance from the town and very quiet. Friendly neighbors, excellent view and location with pool and beach. The unit was just what I wanted. Separate quiet bedrooms, bathrooms, with adequate kitchen equipment and comfortable living room for sitting and reading. the place was very clean with periodic additional cleaning. I spent much time on the porch which was a real treat for view and sunshine. I would definitely go there again.

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $200


1. RENTERS FEE ADDED BY VRBO: As of 6/23/17, VRBO has added a fee of 5-9% onto the cost to renters. I am very displeased by this new VRBO policy, and I want our guests to know that I do not receive any portion of this new VRBO fee to our guests.
I would ask potential guests to click "Contact Owner" about the rental, not "Request to Book". This is because VRBO now allows only 24 hours after I receive a "Request to Book" for me to communicate with potential guests, after which VRBO will auto-decline the booking request. If this does happen please send me a new "Contact Owner" about the rental.
I am very sorry for the extra expense and any inconvenience this new VRBO policy causes our guests.

2. RE OUR CALENDAR: As presented, the calendar displays only part of the present year. To view later availability dates (presently through 2019), please click the tiny blue arrow on the right of the displayed Calendar. Thank you.

Discount given for stay of 10 days or more. Listed price is for 4 or fewer guests. For a 5th guest, there is an extra charge of $50-$75 per day, unless the extra guest is a small child.

Finally, please ignore the "7 nights or more avg nightly" amounts shown above, since they are incorrect. I have not yet found any way to correct this error or remove these entries.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
