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.

Perfect for our family of 5
The house is ideally located just a few blocks from the beach and from downtown. Two rooms on second floor were spacious with king beds and the bedroom on the first floor was a bit smaller but worked well. The media room on the second floor was perfect for lounging and was used as a fourth bedroom for one of the kids. Kitchen and living area spacious with a ping pong table out back. The most used area of the house was the top floor bar and lounge area that had a dipping pool. A nice change after the sand on the beach. Very secure and safe. Property Manager Lucio, his wife and his father did a great job. Home was clean and beautiful with everything you needed for an extended stay. We have stayed on the beach and on the Colonia side, but this was our best stay yet. The produce stands and tortilla bakery down the street were wonderful. Thank you for a great visit.
Great location, great space
We took a quick trip with two adults and two teens and this place had elbow room for everyone. We joked that we could have brought more people. The rooftop pool is a great amenity and the house is stocked with all sorts of necessities from cooking (pots, pans, some food staples) to enjoying a day at the beach (umbrella, chairs, mats.) Loved having access to the bikes to explore (a lock would have made it even better to eliminate worry!). Close to everything. Lucio was so friendly and helpful— not that we needed a thing. The rooster didn’t even bother us! We will be back.
The property was absolutely beautiful just like the pictures. Kitchen was fully equipped. Everything very clean. Located minutes from everything. Beds were very comfortable. We can’t wait to book again for next year.
I travel a lot and always rent from Home away. This house is the best I have ever rented. The rooftop pool is amazing. The house has everything you need. Beach towels, beachchairs and umbrellas. The kitchen pantry is stocked with spices oil etc. The town is so charming and has everything you need. No need for a car. Beaches were the best. Rent this house you will love it!
Nice home located only a couple of blocks from the beach and town center
Six of our family stayed here for 3 nights. We enjoyed the house which was very comfortable with 3 full bedrooms and baths as well as a very nice living area and kitchen. We spend some time on the rooftop with a view of the area and ocean. We communicated with the owner several times and he was always prompt with his responses and very helpful as to location and recommended places to eat. We were very happy with the house and always felt safe not only in the home but walking to the beach and restaurants. Thank you Russ for you're help and kindness. Lucio the maintenance man was very prompt and helpful with any concerns we had. Overall very good experience for all of us.
Russ has a perfect vacation home located within walking of everything Puerto Morelos has
We enjoyed the atmosphere of their home during a 10 day stay. We did choose to rent a car on two separate occasions and they have a locked patio area the car fit in well. Having our own pool on the top was great and there were some times where we would use it but being so close to everything in Puerto Morelos and having a car to explore the more reasonably priced cenotes and Playa,Isa,Tulum keep us busy. There are two bikes available and we used them every morning. Upside was dining,town,cenotes,home, people. snorkeling off shore and at reef. The Seaweed as a major downside as since January according to locals it has been on the beaches. My wife and both Kids came home with rashes which we are still trying to get rid of.
We will return again but will check seaweed situation first when planning. GREAT HOME. Thanks for allowing us to stay. PS. taxis and bus system is easy and there is very little waiting on buses at the grocery store or bigger cities. Also having a beer store across from house was fun and helpful. August is slow season and town wasn't overcrowded at all.
