About The Owner

Retired couple from Minnesota. We enjoy biking, walking, swimming, kayaking, birding, and making friends in Mexico.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1997

Why The Owner chose Quintana Roo

We had vacationed in Mexico along the coast of Yucatan for many years. We bought here because Puerto Morelos is a small town where we can walk or ride our bikes to the Zocolo (town square), local restaurants, and has great beaches where you can walk for miles in either direction. We liked having a grocery store in the town and interesting activities in the Zocolo. There is easy access to the airport and public transportation to Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the closeness to the beach, the enclosed property, the small number of condos in the complex and also we appreciate the quietness of the area.

Lovely property in fun small town

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great from start to finish. We communicated well before we arrived. Upon arrival, we were met by Susy, who takes care of the property. She gave us the keys and showed us the basics. The villa is lovely - a full kitchen, a comfortable living room, a bathroom on the first level, and a patio out back. We spent quite a bit of time playing cards and board games on the patio with our two teenage boys. Upstairs are two large bedrooms and a large bathroom with two sinks. The master bedroom has a large balcony, where we could look out the back and also hang up wet towels and bathing suits. One of the best parts of the property is the adjoining pool, which is shared by all the units. We spent hours every day in the pool, and by chance we were the only ones there. The pool is surrounded by lush flowers and greenery, and is simply delightful. Conveniently, there were enough bikes at the house for all of us to use. We decided not to cook while on vacation, so we either walked or rode our bikes the few blocks into the main square to enjoy many delicious meals. I'm not sure if the town was livelier because this was the spring break season, but we enjoyed so much live music and many street entertainers. What a fun and relaxing vacation we had in Puerto Morelos.

Villas Silvia was more then we expected

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for almost two weeks. The condo was perfect for my husband and myself for a relaxing comfortable stay. The condo is well appointed with everything we needed. Lots of towels, dishes and other extras. The bed was comfortable and huge. Very open airy space. Open the windows and put on the fans and that's all you need, never used the air conditioner and it was perfect temperature all the time. Had wifi, a tiny bit spotty had to occasionally stand in the right place, but not a big bother. The satellite tv was experiencing some difficulty which Susy the property manager tried to get fixed but couldn't while we were there. No big deal to us as we didn't get to paradise to watch tv. Everything you could want to cooking in or a short 10 min walk to some of the best restaurants. Some of our favs were Little Italy for the best calzone, el nicho I think it was called by the book store for amazing eggs Benny, and el pesquero for wonderful shrimp dinner and sea bass. Oh my wish I'd known that I'd of eaten there every night. Close walk to the Center of town, or a shorter bike ride. Kudos to the bikes. The beach was a short walk and found great beach snorkelling in front of the orange apartment building on the beach. Loved that we had beach chairs umbrella and a cooler for our ice cold cerveza. Easy to shop for most things at the oxxo, the vegetable store, best fresh squeezed orange juice ever, and Casa Martin . Did a bigger shop at the supermarket in colonia. Took a bus there cheap cheap. What can I say the whole trip was fantastic. Special thanks to Renee the owner for your wonderful condo, Susy the manager for her attention to detail and always being there. Bright smiling face. And Felipe for getting us where we needed to go. Please if you want a special trip in a special place 1B villa Silvia is your go to in puerto Morelos Enjoy.

Relaxing 2 Week Vacation

  • 5 of 5

A great alternative to resort vacations. Pool 15 steps from patio gate, beach a 3 minute walk, beach chairs and umbrella, bikes to ride around the area, 7 minute walk to the center of Pueto Morelos, a vey safe location. We rented a car however took it back as it was not needed. We also experienced a different eating place each day with a variety of foods. El Nichos, next to the bookstore on the south side of the central square was great for an early breakfast and Cantina Abenaro (sp) great for a cold mineral lemonade an hamburger or BLT (American Food). Susy, the property manager is excellent from her orientation of the condo to arranging our transportation to the airport. A definite yes to recommend this vacation rental property.

Charming!

  • 5 of 5

Our goal in visiting Puerto Morelos was to get our PADI open water scuba certification. Brett over at Dive In Puerto Morelos took great care of us. Using this airy and beautifully appointed condo as our home base was wonderful! We were able to walk wherever we needed to go: restaurants, the market, the dive shop, the beach, the pier, just strolling around the town. Everyone we met in town was very kind...clearly used to tourists and very hospitable, many happy to practice their English and willing to help me with my Spanish.

The condo was a wonderful place to relax. I haven't slept so well in ages. My college kids (just home from difficult semesters) were happy to be there...and trot over to the beach for R&R. My teenage son, an aspiring chef, loved talking to the cooks in town...he is now email or facebook friends will them all. He will be blogging about his new recipes and all the fruits he sampled.

The coral reef was beautiful. My husband, the one who doesn't like cold water and wanted us to do our check out dives in warm water, was NOT disappointed. We spent our last day in Puerto Morelos snorkeling--parrot fish, barracuda, squid, so much more...even spotted a lion fish...

I would definitely visit again AND stay at this location.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed here on numerous occasions. It's a beautiful condo with all the ammenities. The condo complex is small so it's never too crowded or noisy. The pool area is very well kept. The condo is clean and well maintained. The patio area can be locked so children are safely away from the pool, if needed. My children loved going in the sea kayaks out to the reef. The town of Puerto Morelos is small, relaxed and easy going. The beaches are calm- great for children. Or you can head up the road to the beaches with waves. The snorkeling never disappoints. There are also great afternoon or day trips to Mayan ruins, cenotes, Playa del Carmen, Crococoon Zoo. We can't wait to get back to the beach and we'd stay in this condo again.

excellent place....perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

This place was our home for 7 weeks and it was exactly what we needed. We have 3 children, so there was 5 of us and this place offered us plenty of room. It exceeded our expectations!

The pool is a very nice size as well. There are books to read, games to play and American cable so we could watch T.V in English.

The kitchen offered pots, pans, baking sheets, etc....everything we needed for cooking & baking!

The location was great, on a nice quiet street just a block from the beach.

We enjoyed using the beach chairs to relax & read on the beach & the bicycles to go for many bike rides together! The kayaks were also a nice surprise and enjoyed as well!

Like I said...it was just what we needed and suited our family very well!
