Just a 23 minute drive south from Cancun Airport....Palazzo Paradiso is situated on 1/3 acre, with lush gardens, out-door beach shower, and was designed for comfort, luxury, privacy and security.
Palazzo Paradiso has 5 bedrooms, (4 brand new king size beds, and 2 queen) each with its own top of the line Panasonic high efficiency mini split air conditioning units, and private bathroom. There is a sitting area on the second floor with comfortable seating, also can be a sleep area for children. All bedrooms are very pretty. Four bedrooms have balconies. Three of the bedrooms face the ocean and two face the jungle at the rear of the property. The rooftop terrace has two built in sunbathing beds (or somewhere to sleep out at night) facing the sea. To the west, facing the jungle you'll find a queen size sun lounger in our sun-trap area. Great place to get away and relax. At night, sleep under the stars and listen to the waves. Palazzo Paradiso is decorated nicely, and is well equipped, so you shouldn't need to bring very much with you. We have 2 bikes, board games, 3 kayaks, lifejackets, walkie talkies, pool equipment, boogie boards, snorkelling gear, Ipod players, Shaw satellite TV, Flat screen TVs, DVD players/ DVDs, and books.
The kitchen is well equipped, with all necessary appliances, including an icemaker, wine fridge, and beer fridge. We also have new silverware and dinner service.
You can keep in touch with broadband internet access (with wi-fi that works up to the first bedroom level). The 60 inch Samsung LED TV is Internet and Skype enabled. We will also leave a couple of cellphones for your use in Mexico. In addition, we have a VOIP phone that allows free calling to the US and Canada.
Each room has mini-split air-conditioning, but it is mostly not needed, because there's nearly always gentle breezes blowing.
We have a solar heated private pool, sun-loungers, sand area for young children to play, out-door beach shower, palapas, and two hammocks. Take a few steps down to a quiet beach.
If you wish, we can organize someone to shop, and cook for you, allowing you to spend more time on the beach. We can even organize tours, fishing trips, snorkeling or scuba diving. Our objective is for you to have a safe, comfortable and relaxing time.
There are tons of things to do in the area. The fishing village of Puerto Morelos is a delight, with lots of inexpensive restaurants and entertainment. We are located about half way between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, very convenient for activities, including:
Snorkeling and fishing the protected reef in PM The Little Mexican Cooking School in PM Crocacoon Zoo in PM Waterpark in Cancun Horseback riding The Cenotes Xplore, Xcaret, Selvetica and XpuHa adventure parks A trip to Isla Mujeres is a 'must do' ride the island on a golf cart Various 'swim with the dolphin' locations Mayan ruins at Tulum, Coba and Chitzenitza 'Swimming with the Turtles' at Akumal Beach Fifth Avenue in Playa del Carmen A trip on the ferry to Cozumel Golfing at one of the excellent local courses .......and many others
This is a great location to take advantage of everything that the Riviera Maya has to offer
This is a great place for kids. A private pool right at the rear of the living area, so easy to keep an eye on them. The beach is steps away. There is a little sand play area inside the property with a palapa and a hammock so that you can relax with small children right next to you. We have lots of things to keep kids occupied. Pool games, balls, buckets and spades, fishing rods, board games, boogie boards, lifejackets. They will love it here....moreless
Palazzo Paradiso has a ground floor bedroom (one of the reasons we bought it). However, you have to go up two or three steps from the parking area to get to the ground level. Once there, a wheelchair may well be useable all around the ground floor (we've never tried it, but we don't see why it should not work)...moreless
All the bedrooms have a private bathroom and there are two other toilets, one on the ground floor and one on the roof....moreless
We can provide a chef who will cook two meals a day. He can also shop for your groceries before you arrive (which is highly recommended).

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: My husband and I were both born in England, but moved to Canada in 1988. We now have 6 grandkids and have (sort of) retired. We love to travel and have been to many places in the world, but still love to spend time down here in Puerto Morelos because it is so relaxing and yet, if we want to reconnect with the world, we can pop into town, or drive into Cancun or Playa Del Carmen and enjoy all the entertainment and shopping.
Why the Owner Chose Puerto Morelos: We always liked Mexico, and the people here are very friendly. We decided to buy on the ocean in the Mayan Riviera, because there is so much to do here and because we really enjoy going out and exploring what Mexico has to offer. We'd been looking for about a year when, by chance, we ended up in an all-inclusive hotel in Puerto Morelos. We immediately fell in love with this quaint fishing village. I said ''This is the real Mexico. This is where we need to be'. To wander by the locals fishing, to see the kids playing in the town square, to hear the church bells ring every day, to eat great food in inexpensive restaurants, to sip a cappucino on the sidewalk, to pop into the Canadian owned bookstore and to listen to talented musicians at night after walking the beach in the day. What more could you want?
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Palazzo Paradiso is situated in the North end of the town, so it is quiet and relaxing. It's at the end of a fairly private beach road and, because we have a velador living on site, and lots of neighbors we have got to know keeping an eye on things, we all feel very, very safe here. This really is a home away from home. It's not available for rent all the time because we're here as often as we can........kicking back, taking it easy, and enjoying life again. Claudia, our Property Manager is a lovely, Mexican lady who speaks very good English. She owns a travel and rental business in the village. When you have settled in, Claudia will stop by to introduce herself. She will be happy to organise things for you, and will resolve any small problems you may have.
