Manager info

About: We are an expat family that relocated to Puerto Morelos from Washington D.C. two years ago. We've lived all over the world learning different cultures and languages and discovered Puerto Morelos after seeking refuge from D.C.'s too hot summers and freezing winters. It has always felt like our home and we wanted our children to learn Spanish while they experience the Puerto Morelos quality of life. We love it for its diverse community, European style cafes and dining, and amazing beaches.

Why Puerto Morelos, Q.R., Mexico:
Casa Mariposa is a newly built 3 bedroom luxury house with a private pool and a short walk to the beach. The house is large and airy with easy access to town, and everything you need for your vacation. It is very private and peaceful, the perfect refuge to thaw out from the winter cold while discovering the Mayan Riviera.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a large house in the nicest neighborhood in Puerto Morelos. In addition to all of the amenities that come with the house, we have a concierge who will help arrange everything you need to enjoy your vacation. Whether you need a pre-stocked kitchen with the freshest produce and seafood in the region, or a private tour of the jungle for the whole family, our concierge knows the best kept secrets with access to experiences reserved for locals only.
