Playa del Secreto villa description

Turtle Hideaway is located on the Mayan Riviera 20 minutes south of the Cancun airport and about 20 minutes north of Playa Del Carmen. It is tucked away near one of the most beautiful and remote beaches on the entire Yucatan. You will relax in the totally private seclusion this area offers.

Upon your arrival you will be greeted by the manager of Sandy's Villas who will take care of all of your needs during your stay. Bottled water is provided for the duration of your stay.

The 2 bedrooms have luxurious king-sized beds and the living room has a double-sized futon. There are patios on both floors with chairs for relaxing; the upstairs patio has a hammock for catching a few zzz's whenever you feel like it. The fully equipped kitchen and ceiling fans will make your stay convenient and comfortable. There is a TV and DVD player for entertainment in the living room. We provide all bath and beach towels, as well as bed linens. A large swimming pool graces the grounds where lush green grass, tropical flowers and palm and banana trees abound.

A spiral staircase leads up to the 2nd floor and then on to your private rooftop where a 360 degree view allows you to lie back on your lounge chair, work on your tan and view the spectacular sunrises and sunsets across the magnificent Caribbean Sea as the surf pounds and echoes up to your rooftop retreat.

The small fishing village of Puerto Morelos is a 10 minute drive north. There you will find a grocery store, dive shops, a pharmacy, wonderful restaurants, a pizza place, and fishing and snorkeling excursions. The Mayan Reef at Puerto Morelos is the second largest barrier reef in the world with some of the best snorkeling to be found. Enjoy the quaint town square where the locals sell their wares and children play in the park.

You can walk the powdery white sand at Playa Secreto for miles, gathering lovely shells and playing in the 85 degree turquoise surf and probably not run into more than a handful of other beachcombers. Beach chairs are provided for your relaxation pleasure surfside.

Turtle Hideaway will fulfill your every vacation fantasy as you relax and unwind on the magical, serene Playa Secreto. Enjoy!

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About: We are Jeff & Laura Epperson, the proud co-owners of Turtle Hideaway, along with our good friends Garry & Julie Mayoh. We're all American citizens, but Laura is from Scotland and the Mayohs are from England. We live in the greater Fort Worth, Texas area and have made this our home for many years. Among other things, we love to travel and the Mayan Riviera is our favorite destination - come stay at Turtle Hideaway and Mexico will become one of your favorite places as well!

                      Why Playa del Secreto:
                      We stumbled upon Turtle Hideaway when looking for a vacation spot, and became the proud owners within a year. We love the area - the beach is beautiful and we normally have it to ourselves, and the grounds and pool at the villa are very inviting and relaxing. Turtle Hideaway is convenient to the Cancun airport, Cancun itself and Playa del Carmen. Puerto Morelos is only 10 minutes away - it's a lovely little town with much to offer for recreation, shopping and dining.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      There are many things that we like to do when staying at Turtle Hideaway - snorkeling at the reef in Puerto Morelos, swimming at nearby cenotes, day trips to the water parks Xel-Ha and Xcaret, visiting the ruins in Tulum, golf at one of the many nearby courses, dining and shopping in Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen, and occasionally the nightlife in Playa del Carmen or Cancun.
