What a Jewel
The home was fantastic. It was very clean and felt like home. There are 4 bedroom and 4 1/2 baths which makes room for large families or couples to share. It is a very private and quiet home, so if you are looking to chill, this is the place. The grounds-keeper was always available for help and he kept the swimming pool fresh and clean each day. The location is only about 3-4 miles from Puerto Morelos, a great village that has everything you need-lots of shopping and restaurants and specialty stores. The location is also about 30 minutes from Cancun, where you can join in the madness of vacationers, if you would like that. The only issue we had was that we were not able to swim or have a beach at the house. Seaweed and grasses washed up so badly each day, that we couldn't even get our with the kayaks. Also, this grass accumulation had a terrible smell. One thing that would have been nice were driving directions to Casa Colonial. But the leasing agent was more than happy to meet us and lead us there. This is located in a very safe area, if that is a concern. Overall, a great place to stay.
Beautiful, spacious, great location, friendly help
I stayed at Casa Colonial with two other women and five teens, we all had a fabulous time. The house is large and comfortable enough for everyone to find their own "corner" for some alone time, and the furniture and common areas are big enough for together time.
Miguel the house keeper helps out in any way he can, and can be very useful to have around if you need any tips on getting anything you may need to make your stay wonderful.
Twelve days were not enough to want to leave. It was a perfect family vacation.
It´s was a pleasure to receive you at home, and that you enjoy the house. We would like to see you again.
Great view, friendly staff but the house needs repairs
I'll start with the good things:
Nice view of the sea from all the rooms and very comfortable outdoor area.
The staff is very friendly and you don't even know Miguel is there.
The town of Puerto Morales is very friendly and has several bars and restaurants to choose from, a 10 minute drive (you need a car if you want to explore the area, you don't want to walk too far)
The pools aren't heated but very refreshing (the small one isn't a hot tub)
The strong ocean breeze blows throw the house and makes it very comfortable day and night. We never needed the A/C.
Miguel empties the trash and keeps the drinking water full.
It was very quiet the entire time we were there even over Easter/ Spring break weekend.
The house is roughly half way between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. Follow the directions to the house closely. You may think "this can't be the way" but just keep going.
Now the not so good:
The hot water in the kitchen didn't work the entire trip. Miguel tried to fix it a few times but he's not a plumber. Boiling water for dish washing is not what I expected to be doing on vacation.
The master bedroom lights worked sometimes and there's only one outlet which is used for the lamp so it needs to be unplugged if you want to plug in a phone or something.
The master toilet doesn't work.
The middle room toilet needed to be reset to keep from running quit often.
The main floor room shower had no water pressure.
All the showers have sliding doors that have a good buildup of mildew and grime in the track.
The kitchen countertops have broken tiles and cracks in the grout which is where the small bugs live that will come out and infest your food if you do any cooking.
When we got there the beach was relatively clear of sea grass but the day before we left the beach was inaccessible from the amount of weeds that washed up, along with all the ocean litter. I feel bad for the next guests.
They do have a basketball hoop and ball but no ping-pong , volleyball or bicycles as advertised. Bring your own toys if you have kids.
Overall the house is in a good location with a great staff. It's just in need of some minor maintenance and it would bring 5 stars.
Gorgeous views- very helpful friendly staff.
Property was lovely and spacious. Some of the mattresses were firmer than we liked but overall, a very good decision to stay there.
It is a pleasure to have you as guests, we hope to see you soon again.
Lovely House -- Beautiful View! Some "Annoyances"
The house is spacious, the rooms are large, & the view is wonderful. The caretaker, Miguel, is a jewel.
For young children, the small pool is perfect -- but be aware that there is no beach to speak of & since the last stair of the "way down" to the water is broken, it is necessary to walk along the sea wall & descend using a neighbor's stairs. This is fine for older kids to get into the water to swim, but there is no "beach" in this area. That means there is very limited "walking on the beach" for adults as well. We had 5 adults, 2 teens, & 2 children.
The kitchen is well-populated with ants. NOTHING can be "left out" & everything must be stored in the small refrigerator, so it is difficult for larger groups. I would have given the house 4-stars except for the fact that I don't think people on vacation should have to battle the bugs!
Several in our group found the beds less than comfortable, I'm guessing because they like softer mattresses. (Perhaps the addition of memory foam toppers would be helpful.) For us, there were several other small annoyances that will be fixed (I trust) by the time you arrive. All in all, it was a nice house at a reasonable price.
Thank you very much for your comments that every day make us be better hosts, we will correct the mentioned details.
Family Vacation - family of 6
We loved this villa. The pool and view are amazing. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Miguel was instrumental in assisting us with a snorkelling adventure that picked us up right in front of the house. The kitchen had basic tools and could use a few staples like salt and pepper, cooking oil and BBQ tools. We cooked a lot with the BBQ. Purchase charcoal from the local grocery store. We rented a van to get around and were able to see most of what this area had to offer. Local grocery store had mini size condiments etc and a good selection of produce. We had fresh coconuts from the trees daily. We caught a fish right off the beach and had fish tacos for lunch. Peaceful and relaxing. We will be back!
It will be a pleasure to welcome you again !!!!
The riviera maya has many archeological sites to visit tulum, xcaret, coba and chichen itza well known and a significant amount of cenotes and underground rivers where you can swim or snorkel
