Beautiful house with a lovely pool and ocean views

  • 4 of 5

Casa Colonial was a very good choice for our needs, which were for a beachfront home with a pool and four bedrooms (and five bathrooms!) at a reasonable price. The home is lovely and in good shape, and has lots of windows for sea breezes and sights. (It was windy during our stay, and and we never needed the air conditioner, even on very hot days.) The pool is small and well maintained, and cleaned daily by the caretaker, Miguel, who is delightful and extraordinarily helpful. (He also cooked us a fish dinner on the outdoor BBQ--nice!) It is located among other houses, so it feels private when looking out at the ocean or sitting out back, but, as with any place with neighbors, it can be quiet or not depending on who is staying in the surrounding houses. (It was very peaceful for most of the visit, until an extroverted group came to visit the owner for a reunion next door for a couple of days.) The beach is very narrow (gone in high tide) but the water's nice--and loud against the break wall (we enjoyed the sound). It's just a few-minute walk to a long stretch of beach along a series of hotels. It's located about a 10 to 15-minute drive to the sweet town of Puerto Morelos, which has great restaurants, nice markets and a friendly, warm atmosphere.

Edna, the manager, couldn't have been more helpful with questions before and during our stay.

Great House, Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is great - clean, large and comfortable. The four bedrooms comfortably slept the eight in my family.

Edna, the property manager, was very helpful and proactive in arranging to meet us on our arrival and provided everything we needed.

The exit to the house is a centre-line crossing of the highway at the Croco-Cun Zoo. This is about 3 km before the exit to Puerto Morelos when you are coming from the airport.

Groceries are relatively inexpensive just off the highway before you take the connector road to Puerto Morelos. The fastest route in/out of Puerto Morelos is to go back to the highway at the Croco-Cun Zoo, then drive south to the exit for Puerto Morelos - this is where you are best advised to buy groceries and do laundry (there is no laundry in the house).

Restaurants in Puerto Morelos are excellent and inexpensive. You can book snorkelling from the dock at the town square (highly recommended) and you can also book fishing expeditions where the fish that you catch will be cooked for you in one of the local restaurants.

Taxis are very expensive, especially as the house is about a 15 minute drive from Puerto Morelos town square (we rented a car at the airport - again, highly recommended)

You can book tours to any or all of the Yucatan tourist destinations at local kiosk at the town square - the local tourist bureau has about a half dozen employees on staff at the dock and town square at all times and are very helpful.

There is a taxi stand on the west (landward) side of the town square if you need a cab from downtown. Taxi's will charge $20 USD to the house, but if you are insistent, you can get it for less.

If you are at the house, Miguel, who maintains the grounds and pool, is very helpful and will call a taxi for you (providing the taxi driver directions), and will provide fresh linen, towels, etc., as required. Miguel does not speak English, but is very good with a cell phone Spanish-English translator.

Beds are comfortable and the mini-split air conditioning was very nice to have. The beach is a not very wide in front of the house (Google Streetview has a walk by view from the water - check it out). Satellite TV is all Spanish - bring an HDMI cable if you plan to hook up a laptop for Netflix...

I highly recommend this house if you are looking for a safe, comfortable, quiet house, on the beach, with a great view of the sunrise. We had a great time and would certainly consider returning in the future

Fantastic Group Trip!

  • 5 of 5

We were met at the house on time and greeted in a personal, professional manner. She gave us a tour of the property and answered all of our questions.

To be honest, the photos did not do the property justice. The rooms were very spacious, the decorating great, and everything comfortable.

We had a group staying for an athletic tournament just outside Puerto Morelos and had ample bed spots, shower facilities, and a great kitchen to cook up breakfast for our team before a day of competition. The kitchen is fully-equipped and has a great coffee maker! The AC in the bedrooms were fantastic to help us recover from a long day in the hot, humid weather.

The outdoor areas to relax and hang out were exactly what we needed. The pools were clean, well-temperatured, and provided the great backdrop for relaxation and hanging out. There were plenty of chairs outside to enjoy the sun, waves, and ocean breeze. There was a lot of algae on the beaches, but that can be expected after the hurricane season.

The best part of this trip was having someone at the property to help take care of the house and answer any of our questions. He and his family stay in a small house in front, and Miguel was simply fantastic. He helped ensure we had clean water and helped whenever we had questions or issues. We got a flat tire on one of our rental cars, and he helped us change the tire and find a place to get the tire fixed. That type of friendly help is not something we were expecting in the trip, and were so happy with everything he did for us.

Our property manager even helped us book a snorkeling outing for people staying at our house and our teammates at a different house. The boat picked us up right at the beach outside of the house. You should absolutely set this up as it was a huge hit with all the ladies on our team!

One thing worth noting: the bedroom on the first floor is totally handicap-accessible and easy for people with mobility-related issues. If you're looking for a property that is accessible for older adults , this would be a good fit for you.

Some of the beds have foot-board bed frames. This could be difficult if you have a lot of people in your party over the height of 5'7" or so. Otherwise, just have the taller folks sleep in the beds with the frames without foot-boards.

We had a fantastic time at this beautiful house. We recommend it to any groups looking for a relaxing place to balance out your exciting plans in the area!

Good family vacation house and great staff

  • 3 of 5

This property should have gotten our 5 star rating....the internet transactions were excellent; it is ideal for a family and friends vacation; it is very safe and private; Miguel and Yessica who took care of us and live on the property are a great asset and do a fabulous job; the bedrooms are bright and airy with quality white linen; the Casa is close to Puerto Morelos which is very relaxed and has kept most of it's authenticity. Neverthless we can only give this property 3 stars because it lacks adequate furniture in the living areas and outdoor; because there was no lighting around the pool preventing us from fully enjoying the outdoors in the evening; but most of all because there really was NO beach since the algae had taken over the coast when we were there- that was a huge disappointment! We will not rent this property again and cannot recommend it.
