About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This is a beautiful, spacious 1200 sq.feet condo,(the usual condo size is 800 sq.feet) designed by a talented local architect who lives on site and manages the property. It has water views in the front and sunset views in the back. It is ideally situated in a quiet neighborhood within steps of the town's best beach and a comfortable walking distance (12 minutes) to the town square, via beach or road.

It is tastefully and elegantly furnished, not as a beach rental but as a home. There are two large bedrooms, one with sunrise ocean views and the other with jungle sunset vistas. Both have a large bathroom with marble tile, plentiful storage and shower. Each has a king-size bed which can be made into two twins. There are marble floors throughout and Corian countertops in the kitchen and baths. Lovely gardens surround a shamrock shaped pool with cabana and BBQ. There is off street gated parking. The unit is very bright, very quiet with lovely breezes throughout the day and night.

The kitchen is fully equipped, with microwave, self lighting stove, toaster, blender, new pots and pans, real glasses, dishes, silverware, a hot and cold potable water dispenser and large refrigerator. There is a separate pantry with washer/dryer and storage. All rooms have air conditioning.

The architect/builder manages the property and maintains everything to the highest standards. There are just six condos in this quiet, well designed, well located complex. It is not only ideally situated within the town but also perfectly located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Both are just 20 miles away, in case you desire a change of pace.

If you have any questions about the condo or the area, please call us at the number below or email us. We will be happy to provide further information and assist you with your vacation plans for Puerto Morelos, a place that we love and enjoy for its Mexican flavor, the wonderful Mayan people and its magnificent beaches.

About linda keane

Rosvita and Karl live in Santa Fe, NM and are both therapists and coaches. We love the high desert climate and quiet of our town. We have vacationed often in Mexico and decided to buy in Puerto Morelos in 2005.

linda keane purchased this condo in 2005

Why linda keane chose Puerto Morelos

We choose Puerto Morelos because it retains the sense of community which has often been lost as large developments encroached on town life. It remains an vibrant fishing village with wonderful friendly people, a gorgeous beach, many restuarants with varying cuisines and close proximity to Cancun and Playa del Carmen for those seeking a more active vacation.

A Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The first thing I want to say is how wonderful the communication is with the owners. I never went more than a couple hours without hearing back. This began a perfect vacation.

The owners helped with securing a driver from the airport. We were greeted with a smiling face and felt welcome immediately. We reached the condo only to find that the pictures did not do the condo justice. It is immaculate. The condo is warm and inviting.

The internet was perfect. A nice television for our lazy nights. Air Conditioning. Fully Stocked Kitchen. Laundry Facilities. Four Decks. Views of the Carribean, the mangroves and the starlit sky. Comfortable Beds. So much more than I can list.

We stayed for 18 days and had the time of our life. Just steps to the beach, or down the stairs to the pool. Daily walks to the center of town brought us to the heart of this wonderfully friendly, safe town. The food in town is AWESOME!! We got stuck on a couple of places because they were so good, we kept going back.

There are so many things to do in Puerto Morelos and within an hours drive, I cannot list them all. You must go snorkeling on the coral reef. It is so beautiful. Swimming in a cenote is another MUST DO! These waters truly have healing powers. The nearby Croco Cun Zoo is an interactive zoo that lets you hold and touch so many animals.

In the short time we were there, we made a number of local friends. We plan to return soon and the condo at Casa Sol y Luna is the place we will stay.

Nice Condo at North end of town

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this condo June 2017 and were pleased. It is at the far North end of town, about 3/4 mile walk to center of town. The unit was clean, very close to the beach, about a block away with a partial obstructed view of the ocean. The owners were very responsive everyone I had questions or needed something for the condo.

Spacious ocean view condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo was spacious, clean and comfortable as well as conveniently located just a few minutes' walk from the beach. The town of Puerto Morelos is less than 15 minutes' walk and has an abundance of excellent, reasonably priced restaurants. But if you want something closer, there are numerous beach bars nearby where you can have a drink and/or something to eat. You can walk to town via road or beach or can catch a taxi there for a couple of dollars. Karl, the owner of the condo, was very easy to communicate with via email and always offered extra information. Would stay there again if returning to Puerto Morelos.

Excellent in All Aspects

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Mexico many times and this was our best vacation yet. We stayed at this condo for the month of April. Everything about the condo was great. The kitchen was well equipped, the unit spacious, clean and very comfortable. Rosvita has decorated the place beautifully. Ramon, the on-site manager, and his staff were excellent.

With a nice view of the Caribbean from the living room it was just steps to the beach. The beach is clean, the water warm and everyone is very friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed the 15 minute walk to the town square daily. The restaurants in Puerto Morelos are excellent, prices reasonable and service great. Hope to get back again next year.

Bright Beachside Condo

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying in this condo. It was located at the end of the road in a very quiet part of town. The owner responded to all our inquires and questions within hours. Because it was on 3rd floor, there was a lot of light and sunshine filling the rooms. We could get a nice view of the ocean from the living room balcony. The beachside bedroom also had a nice view. The balconies were narrow, however, so we could not enjoy a meal on them. The condo was well equipped with everything we needed. We cooked a few meals at home but mostly went out to eat in town. There are so many places to choose from! The walk was about a mile each way so we got excellent exercise on our vacation. If you wanted to take a taxi, they were about $2 American. It was a quick walk to the beach and just a bit farther to Unico, the closest beach bar. Our favorite beach bar, however, was My Paradise, where we spent many afternoons lounging and drinking Margarita's! The showers had good pressure and there were plenty of towels, including beach towels. They supplied a beach umbrella and two chairs also. The street side bedroom toilet was not working well so we needed to use the hall toilet most of the time. The owner was going to fix it when he arrived in town the day we left. He was very apologetic. Besides this minor inconvenience, we had a wonderful stay. We would recommend this condo. It was very reasonably prices and beautiful!
