Beautiful villa inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Villa Karina is gorgeous, inside and out. The entire property is very well maintained and is beautifully decorated. The view of the water is amazing! We had a group of 11 (adults, teenagers, and a 9 year old) and the villa floor plan is perfect. There are many spaces to congregate or spread out in addition to the dining room and living room: third floor rooftop deck, second floor deck, covered patio, pool area, cabana/palapa with cushioned seating, and beach. Loved the private atmosphere - no crowds, no fighting for pool/beach chairs. The refrigerator has filtered water which is handy. There are two bikes at the villa which were fun to ride into town.

Dora is great and is just a phone call or text away. She answered our many questions, from where to order pizza to how to catch a bus to Playa. She also arranged our excursions (Tulum and Xel Ha) and massages. (Gabriela gives wonderful massages)!

Recommendations/advice...1) taxis are cheap ($2-$4 per trip within Puerto Morelos) and are easily accessible all around Puerto Morelos. It makes for easy trips into Puerto Morelos, grocery store, or bus station. 2) I would recommend doing most of your own grocery shopping as the grocery items are different than what we were used to. 3) Cook less. We ordered pizza one night - 4 large pizzas delivered cost $30, we wish we had done this twice. Also we had the chef come in and cook, which was so reasonable (cheaper than going out to a restaurant) and the meal was fabulous! We also wish we would've had him come twice.

Puerto Morelos is a quaint, Mexican town with a beautiful park/beachfront area. I definitely recommend a visit. You can walk down the beach (15 min walk), take a 3 min taxi ride, or take the 2 new bikes into town. We also went to Playa del Carmen for a more commercialized experience. Dora recommended the bus which was very inexpensive. Bus tickets to Playa are less than $2 each way per person and run frequently throughout the day.

We will definitely come back!

Elegant Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Wow wow wow...we were eight couples taking a yoga retreat in Puerto Morelos. Part of me wants to keep this not-so-small fishing village a secret, but having been there 14 years ago, I can see it has grown. But not so much that we couldn't feel the beautiful energy of the people who call it home. Villa Karina is exceptionally lovely. The gardens, spaciousness, the constant breeze that flows through...all conspired to give us the feeling of deep retreat. Not a thing left out of the experience! Pablo cooked for us. Delicious ceviche and fish and more. Dora, as lovely as she is gracious with her hostessing. We felt completely taken care of and plan to return next year.

Our group is a rather discerning one with 3 Europeans, two architects, a foot surgeon, a minister, winemaker and myself, the Yoga instructor. We love to travel, not as tourists but as travelers…meeting the local people, eating the local food and experiencing the cultures of the land. Being in the gorgeous setting of Villa Karina gave us a respite each day to wash off the salt, recline and listen to the wind, waves, and birds....can you tell Im missing it right now??

Thank you, thank you for creating and sharing such a beautiful, majestic home in Paradise!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Villa Karina for my husband's birthday. Not only was the house beautiful, luxurious and perfectly equipped, there was also plenty of room for the 10 people (5 couples) in my group. We absolutely loved the beach, beachfront pool and the lounge area under the palapa. The house manager, Dora, was incredibly helpful and welcoming. It was like she was our personal concierge. She went above and beyond. We all had a fun and relaxing vacation!

The property was breathtaking & absolutely beautiful!!! The sunrises we're picture perfect every day

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience. There were three families that stayed there with children ages 6,3,2 & 1. The kids and adults had a blast! The house was beautiful inside & out, and the staff were so polite.

Dora was a great asset to the house. Anything you needed she was all over it. Groceries, taxis, tours, questions you name it. The men wanted to do an ATV tour, although they didn't have that she found an amazing buggie tour in the jungle about 30 minutes away. The guys had a great time That the mamma's did it two days later too. I'd highly recommend it!

Morning sunrises we're breathtaking, we saw every single one. The spacious outdoor area was perfect for everyone. You could swim, relax in the shade, lay in the sun, go to the beach, get a massage,read a book... whatever your heart desired.

We will definitely be rebooking soon & can not wait to go back!

Another fantastic week at Villa Karina

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely fantastic stay (our second) last week at Villa Karina. The remodeling of the bedrooms was perfect and the villa was as good as ever. Our weather was great with 3 days of snorkeling, many walks to town, great food, Danny the chef cooking one dinner for us, and relaxing much of the time. Dora was her usual charming self and checked up on us frequently. The villa now has an industrial size orange juicer for fresh squeezed oj each morning...highly recommended!

Thank you again. We will return next year!

BEST WEEK EVER!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the most fantastic and tranquil week at Villa Karina with four great friends! Everything about our vacation was perfect along with all who made it that way: owner Maria, villa manager & concierge extrodonaire Dora, housekeeper, groundskeeper, masseuse Gabriela. Dora.... we cannot say enough. She truly wanted us to have the best experience and she succeeded. I don't think there is any task too small for her to tackle.

The Villa is amazing & beautiful - with very comfortable beds! Puerto Morelos is an easy 15-20 minute walk along the ocean to the square. The people of PM are great. They were very helpful and truly appeared to enjoy us in their community.

There are a few all-inclusive resorts in the area but why would someone prefer to stay with hundreds of others when they could stay in a home of their own? There is also a clothing optional resort a couple of doors down which just added to our adventure --- it wasn't like they paraded in front of Villa Karina (to each their own).

At the end of our weekend escape, we were amazed by how little money we spent total on food at the grocery store, food at restaurants, tips, taxi, and beverages/alcohol (beverages every day 😀򐀩. We had spent $385 per couple for the week for all of these things - and we didn't hold back. We truly had the best week ever....I'm ready to go back!!!
