About Corey or Nancy Schillereff

We have lived here in Mexico for over 30 years and we made Puerto Morelos our home because of it`s tranquility and real Mexican flavor. Here we enjoy the beautiful beaches and access to the some of the most unspoiled coral reefs in the world yet we are 30 minutes from all sorts of activities.

Corey or Nancy Schillereff purchased this house in 1995

Why Corey or Nancy Schillereff chose Puerto Morelos

The property is unique in that it is an enclosed private home with ample living area, high ceilings and good ventilation. The doors and windows are all made out of tropical woods and the tiles in the bathroom and kitchen are hand painted, giving the house the true Caribbean feel. The air conditioners are quiet inverters that easily cool the entire house when need be. The house is surrounded by gardens and terraces with views of the jungle behind and beside the property. Be sure to keep an eye open for all the tropical birds and wildlife.

What makes this house unique

The house is located in an exclusive and private part of the town. It is close enough to downtown so you can enjoy the amenities of convenience but secluded enough to enjoy your privacy, The section of beach near the house is not crowded and the ocean is always calm thanks to the proximity of the reef. You can swim, snorkel, windsurf, kite board or just relax on the white sand beach and enjoy your vacation.

Our annual getaway... perfectly wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We return every winter to this lovely house tucked away in the jungle and a stones throw from the ocean. The house itself is wonderful and the owners are 100% attentive and helpful!

Ecstatic review from a Bostonian in desperate need of some R&R

  • 5 of 5

It took me forever to find a place that checked off all my “must have” boxes… I almost fell off of my chair when I stumbled upon Casita Yuyum amidst the throng of postings! It is close to the big Yucatan peninsula cities and attractions (that I honesty could not have cared less about the second I arrived), yet completely secluded from the hustle and bustle. This home is located seemingly situated inside a jungle yet truly only a 5 minute walk from the beach, and just a 10 to 15 minute bike ride (which a couple come “ready to ride” with the property) to the central square. Several vacation rentals I have stayed at in the past have felt like sterile and soulless shells of homes, but this was not the case at all at Yuyum. The décor is authentic to the locale (ridiculously charming with its living room and patio hammocks, and green and blue tiled kitchen and bathroom)…and it was just plain cozy. All of the pampering you could want is there for you--A/C, plenty of space to spread out, stellar wifi, beach chairs and umbrella, tons of fresh drinking water on hand, and plenty of towels and necessities. This was place was glorious. And very importantly, the hosts were so very accommodating—happy to provide advice and great recommendations on restaurants and things to do. The locals are wonderful, as well by the way… an unfortunate last minute engagement meant that I was to travel solo, and honestly I could not have felt safer. I was sad to not be able to share this incredible vacation with another, but still had the time of my life! Five stars for Casita Yuyum, and another 5 stars for Puerto Morelos!

Tips! Oh my goodness, the food is incredible in Puerto Morelos! Be sure to walk down the beach to Unico and have some fresh ceviche, have breakfast at literally at any of the cafes in the square (every single day), have some shrimp quesadillas at Pelicanos with a crisp-cold Tecate waterfront, AND have some fajitas with Valorie (what a character!) at John Gray’s. Rent a car for peace of mind even though you most likely will only use it to get from the airport (there is a protected-gated spot, and this option is much cheaper than taxis + peace of mind that you can venture out if you somehow need to). Watch the DVD they have at the house on “Decoding the Mayan Code” if there is a rainy day 

Cozy Casita!

  • 5 of 5

True to it's description with accurate photos. Owners are very friendly and helpful to your needs! Two block street walk to beach access. Bikes to go to town but also handy to have a car rental for exploring. Very good working internet, air conditioning, and water. Kitchen has everything you need to cook at home. Comfortable king size bed. Lots of space in house! Quiet as long as your only one neighbor is too! Nice jungle landscaping and front porch to lounge outside. Great rental if you do not mind being a little further from town and not right on the beach!

A wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our second time to stay at Yu Yum, and we love it. It is beautiful, clean, spacious, and tucked into the trees yet so close to the ocean! The 30 minute walk to the village is perfect and the landlords are very accommodating and helpful in every way. We also love to sit on the rooftop in the evenings as the sun is setting...watching all the wildlife in this natural setting. Beautiful!

The house is 4min walk to the beach.
Car: recommended

The house is located in a small fishing village 20 minutes south of the Cancun International Airport and the shopping and nightlife of Cancun. Playa del Carmen is only a 20 minute drive and the Mayan Ruins of Tulum and Coba only 1 hour south. The ocean in front of the house is part of the Puerto Morelos National Reef Park ( Parque Nacional Arrecife Puerto Morelos) where you can experience some of the best snorkeling, SCUBA diving, windsurfing and kiteboarding Mexico has to offer. A 15 minute walk down the beach brings you to downtown Puerto Morelos home to a large variety of great international restaurants, beach bars and Yoga centers. In the lagoons of Cancun to the north you can practice waterskiing and wakeboarding and we are 30 minutes away from several nature theme parks, golf courses and equestrian centers. The house is close to an abundance of activities but just far enough away so you wake up to the sounds of nature.
