Overview

Quintana Roo Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4

Our beautiful beachfront condo is only 15 minutes from Cancun Airport and a 25 minute drive to Playa Del Carmen. The condo is on the first floor and faces the ocean. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a totally equipped kitchen and charming Mexican decor.

Our peacefull condo is in a small building with only 5 other units. We have air conditioners and ceiling fans in each room; satellite dish TV and internet connection; a stereo with an iPod hookup. Laundry and maid services are available on request. A BBQ grill is also available.

This wonderful quiet getaway spot has lots of privacy and is just a few steps away from the swimming pool and ocean. Get away from your hectic life in this peaceful slice of Paradise! The condo managers are lovely people, and will help you with all your needs.

Puerto Morelos is an undiscovered treasure. If you love tranquility, open skies, long stretches of beach and a small town atmosphere, this is the place for you. It is quiet—unlike the hustle and bustle of the hotel zone in Cancun. This sleepy fishing village is also a mecca for snorkeling, diving, and deep sea fishing.

PM has an abundance of great restaurants, shopping and local color. There is also a small supermarket and wonderful book store. The towns residents are friendly and accomodating.

Booking jungle tours, excursions to Tulum’s Mayan Ruins, water parks where you can swimming with dolphins are all available in town. Be sure to spend sometime in the town square. It’s a great place to make new friends, and is truly magic at night. The town has just two principal streets and you can walk from one end to the other in about 15

minutes.

PM’s close proximity to the airports and bus terminals makes it a perfect base for exploring the Yucatan peninsula.

Playa del Carmen, just a twenty-minute drive away offers night clubs, cafes, and outrageous shopping.

Know this...the condo is quite far from town. If you're fit you can walk along the beach in 20 minutes otherwise it's a 50 pesos taxi ride. I must have spent at least $70 taking taxis because there was no wifi. The ad says wifi. It needs to add the word unreliable....very frustrating when trying to deal with a family emergency.The shower is more of a dribble. The TV was from 1980 and seemed about to blow up. On day two, one of our kitchen lights stopped working and was never fixed. The kitchen cupboards/drawers are extremely cheap and ill-fitting. On the plus side, the view of the ocean from the second floor was almost worth the price alone. The pool and grounds were well maintained and Tomas, the caretaker, was as helpful as could be given his limited English. You can't help but interact with others staying in the complex. Overall, it was quiet and the beach uncrowded. Ocean swimming was great. Would I stay here again? No. Too much inconvenience for the price.

Owner's Response: Susan, not sure you have the right condo in your response. Ours is Casa Del Mar #4, but we a had a couple stay in our condo from Feb. 22 to March 22 and have already booked for next year. Also, you mentioned a second floor view. We are located on the first floor facing the pool and ocean as the pictures show. Our TV is a HD flat screen we bought last year. I will say the wifi can be spotty, sometimes dependent on weather. But I am thinking you might have stayed in one of the condo on the second floor.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Casa del Mar.

The owner was very helpful and answered all our questions prior to ,and after securing the unit. We felt the price was good value for money.

The location was perfect...we sometimes walked the 30 min to town along the beach, and often took reliable and reasonable taxis.

The Casa is just private enough to feel like you own your own beach, but really is quite near other homes owned by ex-pats, and a little further up the beach the resorts start.

The condo is spacious and comfortable, the kitchen had everything I needed,and the king size bed was very comfy .

The AC worked great, however it was windy while we were there and we just opened the windows for a great cross breeze. The windows all have screens, and I was happily surprised to see no critters of any kind inside.

The view from the livingroom is exactly what you see in the photo..pool and beach. Stunning, relaxing, and just step out the door and you are there !

My husband enjoyed watching football (soccer) in spanish, and the wi-fi worked quite well.

We did have some trouble always having hot water in the shower, but it was warm enough considering the climate.

There is a little laundry room directly across from #4, that was convenient.

The pool was wonderful, the caretaker keeps it very clean..we were always the only ones enjoying it.

Sitting out in the "backyard " on chaises, you can enjoy the sun, sea, the walkers and joggers from the resorts, and anything going on at the dock a few doors down belonging to UNAM ( institute for marine sciences ).

We swam every day in the ocean out front, and the bottom is sandy.

This condo felt very safe and secure, and we were very pleased to have found it !

We intend to be back !
