About Corey or Nancy Schillereff

We have lived here in Mexico for over 30 years and we made Puerto Morelos our home because of it`s tranquility and real Mexican flavor. Here we enjoy the beautiful beaches and access to the some of the most unspoiled coral reefs in the world yet we are 30 minutes from all sorts of activities.

Corey or Nancy Schillereff purchased this house in 1995

Why Corey or Nancy Schillereff chose Quintana Roo

The property is unique in that it is an enclosed private home with ample living area, high ceilings and good ventilation. The doors and windows are all made out of tropical woods and the tiles in the bathroom and kitchen are hand painted, giving the house the true Caribbean feel. The air conditioners are quiet inverters that easily cool the entire house when need be. The house is surrounded by gardens and terraces with views of the jungle behind and beside the property. Be sure to keep an eye open for all the tropical birds and wildlife.

What makes this house unique

The house is located in an exclusive and private part of the town. It is close enough to downtown so you can enjoy the amenities of convenience but secluded enough to enjoy your privacy, The section of beach near the house is not crowded and the ocean is always calm thanks to the proximity of the reef. You can swim, snorkel, windsurf, kite board or just relax on the white sand beach and enjoy your vacation.

Cozy Casita!

  • 5 of 5

True to it's description with accurate photos. Owners are very friendly and helpful to your needs! Two block street walk to beach access. Bikes to go to town but also handy to have a car rental for exploring. Very good working internet, air conditioning, and water. Kitchen has everything you need to cook at home. Comfortable king size bed. Lots of space in house! Quiet as long as your only one neighbor is too! Nice jungle landscaping and front porch to lounge outside. Great rental if you do not mind being a little further from town and not right on the beach!

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our second time to stay at Yu Yum, and we love it. It is beautiful, clean, spacious, and tucked into the trees yet so close to the ocean! The 30 minute walk to the village is perfect and the landlords are very accommodating and helpful in every way. We also love to sit on the rooftop in the evenings as the sun is setting...watching all the wildlife in this natural setting. Beautiful!

Highly enjoyable month-long stay

  • 4 of 5

My wife and her small geriatric dog ruled the roost for one month while I scuba dived. We got to know the property very well, and strongly recommend it. It is clean and secure, which is important in Mexico. It's close to the beach, and borders jungle on two sides. Tejones, fruit bats and a variety of birds provide entertainment near the very private back deck, and the front yard is well kept and very peaceful. The house is bomb-proof (hurricane proof?) and has many interesting older features such as hammock ties and beautiful wood around door frames and windows. We were very comfortable, and felt safe in the house and neighborhood at all times.

The house is several kilometers north of Puerto Morelos, which can make for a long walk for some folks. There are resorts nearby, and taxis are readily available for running to town and the grocery store. The going rate is 50-70 pesos for a one-way ride, depending on the driver. It's good to agree on the fare up front rather than be surprised later. Most of the drivers and many of the townspeople speak little to no English, so some Spanish skills come in very handy. Nancy includes a couple of bicycles, which we used daily to go to town, only about 5-10 minutes. I have recommended this property to some friends with a couple of teenagers as ideal. Additional bikes can be rented in town. While it's not on the beach, it's the next best thing.

We Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

This such a beautiful house, fully enclosed, private and secure. Nice and close to the Cancun airport and Playa Del Carmen.

My husband, myself and our 2 Chihuahuas stayed for 10 days and it was perfect for us. The walk into town along the beach takes abot 20 mins to 1/2 an hour depanding on how you walk. On the bikes however, its about 10 mins. We loved the daily walk and the dogs loved it even more.

The house is clean and very spacious with everything you need included. We will most certainly return.

Lovely time at YuYum

  • 4 of 5

We just arrived home from a wonderful one week vacation in Puerto Morelos. If you are looking for something off the beaten track and very peaceful, this is the place for you. YuYum was lovely, roomy, private and clean. It is just a short walk to a quiet beach and about two kilometers from the town. We were welcomed by Nancy and her husband, Tom, on the evening we arrived and found some much appreciated beer in the refridgerator.

Another great asset were the two bicycles provided. We could easily pedal to town to get groceries etc., and scout around the area. I would recommend making the time to see the Jardin Botanico. We saw monkeys in the trees there. Lots of great botanical information as well. Another thing did was go to the Little Mexican Cooking school for a lesson one day. It was a little pricey, but fun. Snorkeling is good on the reef once you hire a guide and the food in the restaurants was excellent.

Thanks so much Nancy. We had a super time.

The house is 4min walk to the beach.
Car: recommended

The house is located in a small fishing village 20 minutes south of the Cancun International Airport and the shopping and nightlife of Cancun. Playa del Carmen is only a 20 minute drive and the Mayan Ruins of Tulum and Coba only 1 hour south. The ocean in front of the house is part of the Puerto Morelos National Reef Park ( Parque Nacional Arrecife Puerto Morelos) where you can experience some of the best snorkeling, SCUBA diving, windsurfing and kiteboarding Mexico has to offer. A 15 minute walk down the beach brings you to downtown Puerto Morelos home to a large variety of great international restaurants, beach bars and Yoga centers. In the lagoons of Cancun to the north you can practice waterskiing and wakeboarding and we are 30 minutes away from several nature theme parks, golf courses and equestrian centers. The house is close to an abundance of activities but just far enough away so you wake up to the sounds of nature.
