Casa Perros Afortunados (House of the Lucky Dogs) is a newly refurbished 2,500 sf private vacation rental house in the quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos, Q.R., Mexico just 25 minutes from the Cancun airport. A short stroll to the beach or a four minute walk to the restaurants and shops around the town square. The house has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms are identical master suites on the second floor, each with high quality king-sized beds, full bathrooms, and large balconies. The fully-equipped kitchen is large with peninsula seating, and includes a five burner gas stove with griddle. The second floor also features a Media Room with a 47 inch LCD TV with Dish satellite service, DVD / VHS player, an VOIP telephone for free calls to the USA or Canada, and new comfortable lounge seating.

About Owner / Property Manager
My wife and I relocated to the Yucatan in 2010 from San Francisco, CA. We purchased a 200 year old Spanish colonial home in the historic central district of Merida. While out exploring the peninsula's Mayan ruins, cenotes, and beautiful Caribbean waters for snorkeling we came upon the wonderful and lovely seaside town of Puerto Morelos. We fell in love immediately and bought a 2nd home. After several months of updating and renovations we are ready to invite vacationers to come discover the beauty, tranquility, and adventure of an authentic Mexican experience in this charming fishing village.
Owner / Property Manager purchased this House in 2012
Why Owner / Property Manager chose Puerto Morelos
When searching for our vacation home on the Mayan Riviera, we considered both what we wanted in the location, as well as what we did not want. Of course we needed walking access to the beautiful blue Caribbean water. We also wanted easy access to the Cancun Airport to make it an easy trip for visitors. We wanted an authentic Mexican experience, where you know you're in Mexico, and not surrounded by predictable glass and steel high-rise resorts that could be on a beach anywhere. We wanted a small location with the colorful and interesting experience of having locals as neighbors. Where we could easily walk to cool cafes, restaurants, diving and snorkeling, and local Mayan markets.
What makes this House unique
We found all that and more in Puerto Morelos. A seaside fishing village perched between a stunning reef-protected beach and mangrove jungle, both beautiful features that prevent excessive growth of the town. Yet it's just a 25 minute drive to the Cancun international airport. So with privacy as a main objective, we chose a recently built two story house a block and a half off the beach, and just two blocks to the shops and restaurants around the main square. Close enough to stroll easily to either, yet set just far enough away for privacy. Then to enhance the experience, we built up the top of the house, adding a rooftop observation deck with our own large terrace and pool for complete privacy and a 360 degree view that includes the ocean reef, the lighthouse, the coco palm treetops and the mangrove jungle. Inside, we have upgraded the decor, kitchen, WiFi, music systems, etc. to provide modern luxuries. We are proud of what we have accomplished. We love our time here and invite you to enjoy it as well.

Lovely house , fantastic location
It was so easy to book this house, communication was great. It had everything we wanted- 3 comfotable bedrooms, excellent bathrooms and a kitchen that was well equipped. The only reason I give it 4 rather than 5 is that it could do with a little TLC. Rooftop terrace was fabulous but I would put a few plants up there to hide the AC units. The cupboards need some attention too- one handle came off. These things are minor and don’t detract from the overall beauty of the house. Also fantastic restaurants within a few minutes walk
Very nice house
Well provisioned house and in a good location in terms of the beach and restaurants
John Gray restaurant excellent (just a minute walk up the street)
The owner was very easy to communicate with extremely responsive
If you are a light sleeper the noise from the roosters next door can be alleviated by running a few fans at night (many fans throughout the house-- if outside lower back patio late afternoon where it can be quite hot you can run a fan as well)
The rooftop bar and plunge pool were well used--- we bought from the juice guy across the street a fresh bottle of lime juice and used it with fruit, OJ and rum to make smoothies in the magic bullet blender for afternoon cocktails

nice house, well stocked in good location
We stayed here with 3 couples and the house was roomy for us. Fully stocked kitchen, paper towels, garbage bags, drinking water etc. Cute décor, comfy beds, large rooms, nice terrace. Owner was very accommodating with our changing travel plans. Short walk to the beach. Generally quiet at night but neighbors have pet roosters which crow at the most random times. Earplugs are provided and were appreciated!
Spacious, beautifully maintained property!
Lovely house with beautiful outdoor spaces! Large living spaces and bedrooms with very comfortable beds and bedding. Large kitchen stocked with many staples. Beautiful rooftop deck with pool and full bar. The house is a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beaches and town square.
I would highly recommend this property and am already planning my trip back next year.
The perfect location for your stay in paradise.
We were a group of 6 and enjoyed our stay in the house. We were impressed with how well stocked The kitchen was. On hot days we found a dip in the pool very refreshing. There were also many great books on the area. Evenings on the roof lounge area were enjoyed often with music over the speakers and a refrigerator very handy for cold drinks. The rooster next door even provides 2-3 wake up calls at no extra charge. The family that manages things was wonderful. We would certainly recommend this place.
We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for taking the time to highlight the features you enjoyed. As for the rooster he loves the sunrises over the Caribbean and doesn't want anyone to miss out.
Wonderful week in PM
We had a great week staying in this house. It rained 3 of the days we were there so we spent quite a bit of time in the house those days. There were plenty of games, books, and other things to do. We did have am issue with the Wi-Fi that wasn't fixed while we were there so I took 1 star off for that. The location is great for walking to the square or the beach. We felt safe everywhere we went. No need for a car while stay in PM.
