Property description

Walk into this apartment and you will be swept away by the panoramic (180 degrees) views of the turquoise sea, blue skies, white coral sands, distant waves crashing over the barrier reef, palm trees swaying in the breeze, and pelicans and gulls sailing by your third-floor balcony. Standing on the balcony, you will almost believe you are on a cruise ship on the Caribbean Sea. This is Casita Blanca’s prized apartment, thanks to its third-floor corner location, unparalleled views, and spacious 3-bedroom layout!

This condo has been renovated, painted, and furnished with furnishings native to the Yucatán. It is the only apartment in Casita Blanca offering a direct ocean view from the master bedroom, so you can fall asleep listening to the gentle surf or wake up to the rising sun. There is a king-size bed in the master bedroom, a double bed in the second bedroom, and a double futon in the third bed/TV room. The bedrooms have abundant closet space and a safe for your valuables. The renovated kitchen is fully equipped (with filtered water, coffee maker, microwave, tiled countertops, stools, etc.), and the dining area can easily seat six people around the teak table. Step out onto the large balcony, nap in the lounge chair, or just drink in the view. The apartment has Wi-Fi, a CD and DVD player, as well as quality linens and towels, including extra beach towels.

Casita Blanca is a small family-owned complex located directly on the ocean in the charming Mexican fishing village of Puerto Morelos. Enjoy Casita Blanca's beautiful gardens, tiled swimming pool, lounge chairs, palapas, and the fabulous beach where you can swim, kayak, and snorkel. Casita Blanca’s managers, Roberto and Selene, are charming and friendly Spanish- and English-speaking hosts who will assist you with your vacation needs.

A few blocks away is the town of Puerto Morelos, a hidden jewel-of-a-town unspoiled by over-development. You can watch the fishermen come in with their catches at the end of each day, or arrange for first-class diving or snorkeling along the coral reef, a few hundred yards offshore. The town also has very good local restaurants, a grocery store, an English-language bookstore, artisan markets, local spas and yoga classes. Need more action? Its an easy drive north to Cancún or south to Playa del Carmén for shops, crowds, and nightlife. Or, head south along the Riviera Maya to see its famed archaeological sites and ecological parks. There is no end to the delights that await you in this beautiful part of the world!

However, our condo is on the third floor, and the balcony is not child-proofed. So our condo is probably not suitable for families with very young walking children; i.e., toddlers, etc....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My wife and I are both academics, living in the New York City area on Long Island. In 2010, we rented another condo in Casita Blanca, and liked it and Puerto Morelos so much that we bought our present condo there (see more below).

Why the Owner Chose Puerto Morelos:
We rented another unit at Casita Blanca early in 2010, and loved both the quiet fishing village of Puerto Morelos (only a 20 minute drive from Cancun International Airport), and the beautiful, quiet Casita Blanca situated right at the ocean beach. We liked the location of Casita Blanca- only a 10 minute walk to the center of town, but far enough to be on a very quiet part of the beach. While staying at Casita Blanca, we were shown a lovely spacious apartment on the third floor, with its gorgeous panoramic views of the ocean. We fell instantly in love with the apartment, bought it, and renovated and furnished it. We think that you and your family would very much enjoy a stay in our place.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This is indeed a unique apartment- located on the third (top) floor, sunny and spacious with its three bedrooms, bathed by a constant sea breeze, and possessing a gorgeous panoramic ocean view that is the best in Casita Blanca.
