Villa Sole is located in the prime area of Puerto Morelos, the town square, which is the hub of activity, events, shops, and eateries. The small authentic Mexican fishing village is place to meet people with open arms and to enjoy all the culture and activities that this beautiful village has to offer. Once you have experienced this quaint village you will never forget it.

The gardens are vibrant and beautiful, with many colorful birds who sing throughout the day and a little humming bird comes by at 4:00 every afternoon.

It is the ocean breeze, the sun and the ambiance that takes you away to complete the most satisfying stay and a holiday you will never forget.

Enjoy the turquoise Caribbean waters, white sand beaches and nite tranquility under the bed of stars.

It is relaxing, calming and child friendly. There is so much to do and so much to see and you don't have to go far to be adventurous, the snorkeling is amazing, the under water world is a stunning sight to see and it is right there in our front yard for you to try at your own leisure.

Our villas are a unique boutique of a complex because of the proximity to the beach. There are not many around if any that are located so close.

The sand is beautiful the ocean is stunning and the walks any direction with all it sites to see are breath taking. If you walk towards Puerto Morelos watch for the beach bars, they are also kid friendly with a great menu.

In Puerto Morelos walk the square take in the shops and sit for a cold drink and if you have children they can play in the park located right in the centre of PM so they can go off to play and you can watch and enjoy from where you are sitting. Also there is a booth set up by market for all excursions try to barter a better price, there is also a set up on the beach for excursions.

There will be ladies walking the beach with mannequins for hair braids, way cheaper than in town and they will do this right in your chair. There is also a massage studio from stairs at Villa beach front on right hand side, behind them is a little restaurant, comes in pretty handy for a quick lunch.

The food is amazing fresh produce is not like home, soo much better with flavors, the fish market is my most favorite place for the catch of the day, or tuna steak, shrimp, scallops and or steak. BBQing at its best. There are many restaurants to quench any one of your tastes, PM is THE best at many Venues. Just look at the menus out front and there will be many specials and HAPPY HOUR!!!

I love Puerto Morelos, what it has to offer and the people who make a difference, it is small but it has the BIGGEST heart of a town and has so much too offer with its kind, friendly surroundings and I hope you love it as much as we do.

Puerto Morelos is a small fishing village, you will see many boats on the ocean from sun up to sun down, this is where you will see the catch of the day on the menu.

Our house has become a home and It is very spacious and a open concept, it is safe and clean and has everything and more for your needs to have a enjoyable holiday. I wish you much sun, sand, happiness and may your memories be cherished!!!

Grocery service available as well as chef service.

CHILD FRIENDLY!!! Our home accommodates to my children when we first moved in he was 1 years old and she 4 we picked this back location for many reasons. To have minutes to get to my children if they got out of villa and started heading towards the water. Kid friendly.. there are stairs and different levels like any home if the floor gets wet it will be slippery. We picked this home for the tranquil peacefulness to watch my children play on the grass in the green space for them to watch all the fruit grow to be ripe and the birds of many colours. They have fun with adventures to find different creatures and the geckos are their most favorite. People ask many times if it is beach front... we are a 7 villa complex we are not the very front villas but because of the short distance to the beach and the zone is beach front... we sit closer than all hotels and pay higher taxes to be on beach front the reason we chose our location as it is a hidden jewel a lot of people don't know about. Our villa has never disappointed anyone, the pictures don't do it justice is the comments that I normally get, I probably get more bookings if I up dated.... but the madness to my reasoning is...when guests come they are blown away with what they chose for their vacation and what a awesome surprise for our guests to see what they chose to rent and are very excited to have made their choice with us. The house is stunning the land is amazing and the ocean and pool are heaven. I cant show everything on pictures I am limited but rest asure you will not be disappointed.

About Andrea Chorney

I am a business woman and a mom and need a place to get away. Now our house has become a home and I will like to be able open its doors and offer it out so others can enjoy our villa at times we can not. And to experience the small authentic village of Puerto Morelos where arms are open and welcoming. Its my calming place my outlet for quality time with my loved ones, I shut off phones and computers and take in all of the beautiful surrounding and make great memories with my husband daughter and son that we all greatly deserve and want . We all get consumed with time and time limitations, we don't have this in Mexico there are not clocks that are set and there are No clocks that are ever watched. Our holiday is consumed of good ole family quality time that each and everyone of us deserve and want. Life is simple here, everything that we could ever want is in our surrounding area and we don't have to travel far, we love this. I was born in Saskatchewan but now live in a town of Okotoks Alberta. Our most favorite place to be is in Puerto Morelos Mexico and one day we are hoping to move there permanently, we still have a ways to go but this is our dream place. My most favorite thing to do is have beach walks with my daughter to reconnect and talk about life endeavor's to smile and laugh and hold hands. My son to build sand castles together to put a big ole heart around it and the year and talk about spider man! My husband, to reconnect to look back on the days and dream about the future and thank every day for what our life holds. How one single word can impact a heart and what a heaven of a ride we have been living. The memories to cherish the quality time to be blessed for and the many more adventures to come with health, many smiles, giggles, unconditional love that bonds a family!!!! We love what we have here and hope you do too, I say to my children on rainy days the only person that can rain on your parade is YOU May each and everyone of you have a beautiful day.

Andrea Chorney purchased this villa in 2007

Why Andrea Chorney chose Quintana Roo

This property is far enough from town to feel secluded if that's what your looking for but not so far away as to feel isolated from town. Our property touches the resort property Hotel Excellence to the north and to the south Hotel Dreams Rivera. Because of the close proximity of these two large resorts it gives an added sense of safety due to the security presence from the resorts. It is a 20 min drive from Cancun airport( an 1 1/2 hours less than Tulum. It is safe and gated and security is on beachfront during day and nights from the surrounding resorts. We bought this property knowing some day we will be able to stay long term but to also be able to enjoy and learn the culture and language and to take in everything this beautiful country has to offer. I have never met so many beautiful people but also brings you to be grounded as to how fortunate we are every day for the life that we have. This is a perfect area for children to learn and experience and to correspond with other children and a lesson learned every time we go to PM is children don't judge they just want to play. It is beautiful to see and watch as they cant speech the same language but that does not stop them from making friends I LOVE TO WATCH THEM!!! The town country completes us in every way and when we HAVE to go home ugggg we can always say we have had the bestest holiday in the whole wide world.(quoted from my children every time we are about to leave) and my husband and I are reconnected with the quality time that is much needed as well as my children. We are grateful for this little piece of heaven and also want others to experience what we do. Not very people know about this area, so when they come to visit, they fall in love.

******** Disclaimer******* We can not control actions or be held responsible for actions of mother nature regarding the beach such as excessive seaweed or Sargasso build up on the beach or third party contractors that maintain the beach.**********

What makes this villa unique

Ocean from ROCK STAR infinity pool. 24/7 onsite live in care taker the BEST internet we have ever experienced our water and electrical systems have been up graded to Canadian type standards in a event of a lock out we can text you a key to your phone. Off the master bedroom there is a secondary bedroom that is great for guests with small children as it is separated by a glass sliding wall. ( privacy curtains) This Villa has luxury furnishing's pride of ownership and cleanliness speak for itself . We fell in love of how close the beach is the view of the ocean and the sunrise in the morning( not seen very often because of catching up on sleep) but when you do have a chance to see it .It's memorizing. The sunset at night is stunning we take a glass of wine out on the pool deck it is quite romantic and beautiful to see. We love the garden and the humming birds that come every day at 4, we love sitting on the patio and talk about the good ole days what we did as kids and what our dreams and goals are. We are usually outside from sun up to sun down and there is soo much beauty you don't want to miss it. I love cooking and the produce is amazing compared to home lots of flavor, the fish market is brilliant, fresh daily and scallops as big as sand dollars. It is the open space the fresh air the sand in-between the toes the sun, it is the snorkeling with the beauty of the coral and the under water world it is a place to be lost in with your thoughts and the vision with your eyes. It is the second largest coral reef in the world right in our front yard, pretty amazing. If you come down Aug-sept ask about the turtle hatchery and the release it is by invite only, let me know if interested I have some contacts if there are avail

If there is a destination wedding or booked at either side of us Hotel Excellence( adults only) or Dreams resort this is a great vacation place to accommodate when not wanting to book in these hotels and much cheaper to stay that accommodates kids

Guestbook comments from the owner

Will never book Hotel again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Date of Stay

December 19, 2015

We has the best experience ever booking with the owner and the Villa was brilliant and the pictures don't do it justice. You just never know what you are booking, but rest assure when you arrive to this Villa it will meet and exceed all expectations and the grounds and the pool and the beach are right in your hands. Stunning and beautiful in every aspect. Very family friendly as owner has children herself and the Villa is very open and has everything anyone could want or need. My children were extremely happy with all their adventures, the hammocks, the pool the surround ground area which is safe and secure. There was no worries for safety or security as the grounds keeper lives on site and Pilar the property manager made sure with frequent visits with any questions or needs we had. There was also security on beach front from both sides with hotels with monitored regular beach visits. Excursions did not need to do any as we had planned as there was everything on beach front, snorkeling was amazing . walked on the beach to town for lunch at "La Sirenas" and loved the atmosphere of the square. We can't wait for our next visit!

Wonderful, Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful villa. Luxuriously furnished and so comfortable.

When we arrived somewhat jet lagged and having travelled for nearly 20 hours, we were very touched by the generous welcome pack arranged by Andrea , the owner, for us. Wine, bread, jam, fruit and coffee. The thought of shopping when we arrived didn't appeal to us! It was most welcome and we did appreciate this gesture.

The master bedroom's bed was utterly blissful - super comfortable and big. The linens and towels were excellent quality and plentiful.

The en-suite marble bathroom was a pleasure to use. Masses of cupboard space and drawers. There were only two of us so we didn't use the other two bedrooms but they too were furnished beautifully, again large and spacious.

The lounge, dining area and kitchen were huge and so tastefully furnished and the kitchen had well stocked cupboards of pans, crockery and every kitchen utensil could could think of.

The patio at the front of the villa was delightful. We had breakfast every morning outside on the patio looking out to the pool and the sea. Perfect for drinks in the evening or just reading and relaxing.

The infinity pool was divine with lots of loungers and a huge palapa for escaping to if one had had too much sun and just a few steps to the beach.

We didn't hire a car as we loved the walk along the beach into town. Other times we used the road parallel to the beach which was so pretty with the thick mangroves on one side...bird life was amazing on this walk.

Taxis, if one doesn't want to walk, are cheap and plentiful.

We fell in love with Villa Sole. We had a very happy time there and we thoroughly recommend it.

Both Adrian, the caretaker and Pilar, the property manager, were exceptionally kind and helpful.

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Villa we rented in Puerto Morelos. It was a perfect location where we could unwind and relax. Pilar, the Property Manager was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and Adrian, the Property Maintenance Man was willing to help with anything and always accessible. My teenage daughters, my parents and myself felt welcome from the moment we set foot in our "home' for the week. There was plenty of room so if we needed a little quiet time we could go to our respective room or sit on the front porch and listen to the birds or sit by the pool and listen to the waves crash. We had the best massage, EVER, right in front of our complex ON THE BEACH. It was soooo relaxing. This Villa is truly a piece of heaven on earth. We can't wait to go back. The property owner is wonderful at corresponding via email as well. Definitely a must visit paradise just a hop, skip and a jump from Cancun.

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

My family and I loved it here. The house is beautiful, they have everything you need and there is always someone around to help you if you need anything. The only reason why I gave it a 4 star is because there was construction going on in the villa next door that woke us up everyday. Other than that it was a great stay!

Amazing Family Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6, including 4 younger children ages 2-10. We stayed at the Villa Sol for 10 days. We rented a car and contacted Pilar, who helped navigate us to the property from the airport. We were then greeted by both Pilar and Adrian, the property manager. They were kind, considerate and helpful with our family. Adrian even unloaded our car and was very playful and welcoming to us and our children. Pilar gave us a tour of the property and then we were on our own. During this time, the rest of the Villas were unoccupied, which gave us the luxury of having the pool and common grounds to ourselves :) I must mention that this place is absolutely stunning!!! Gorgeous scenery and landscaping, with a beautiful walkway that leads right to the infinity pool, which overlooks the ocean. It's quite breathtaking, in all honesty. The villa was immaculate, and well cared for. Beautifully decorated and accommodated our family of 6 perfectly. The kids room of bunkbeds was a huge bonus for our children. They all slept in there and our toddler slept in the guest room. While this place has a beautiful and comfortable layout, I should mention that it has several stairs. Our toddler handled it for the most part, but we had to keep him under close supervision due to the different levels in and out of the main rooms. A couple of minor inconveniences included the walkway to the pool and the flooring in the villa. Due to rain and being wet from swimming, the floors were dangerously slippery. My husband fell and all of my children had fallen at one point during our stay. Nothing serious, but worth mentioning to be on guard when it rains. Second, the beach access was wonderful, but completely covered in seaweed and debris. It was very dirty, unfortunately. We simply walked over to another area to sit and wade in the ocean, which was fine, but not a part of this property. Lastly, our Villa was next to another villa that was being renovated. Very loud construction noises throughout the entire day every day except Sunday. It got so bad with the jack hammers and loud construction equipment that I finally asked the supervisor if they could quiet down for the hour that my toddler naps every day. They were gracious and respectful and complied with my request. I was very thankful. In the end, we would love to return. Our family had a wonderful & memorable vacation! Special thanks to Adrian; he is a gem! Attentive and completely considerate; Thank you!

Puerto Morelos family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This is our second trip to PoMo and our first stay at Villa Sole. We thoroughly enjoyed the facilities at the villas. The pool provided hours of relaxation and fun. We never tired of The views from the pool area. The house is nicely decorated and accommodated our adult family of 5.

We must thank the owners for such complete and helpful information for arrival and points of interest around the area. A special thanks to Pilar, the property manager, and Adrian, the caretaker. Such delightful and caring people.

If we come back with our family or another group well consider staying here again.

April stay with family

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this condo in Villa Sole in early April, with 5 adults and 3 kids (5, 5, and 8). It was very nice, but the weather was very hot, especially during the middle of the day! The condo is one of 7, with a shared pool and beach area, between two large resorts. We lucked out, as there was no one in the other condos while we were there, so we had the pool to ourselves. If the other condos had been occupied, it would probably have been crowded at the pool. We did hear music from the resorts occasionally, but nothing problematic, and because they cleared the seaweed off their stretches of beach, it made it nicer for walks. The condo complex is very well-maintained, great pool, gated parking area, and a couple of hammocks in a somewhat under-utilized large, roofed palapa near the pool. The beach is very nice - although in April we only sat there in the late afternoon! Adrian, the care-taker, was super, even cutting open a coconut for the kids, and Pilar was very helpful as well.

We were disappointed that there is NO WASHER/DRYER in the condo, despite being listed on the websites. We had brought clothes for half the trip, but luckily found a laundry in town mid-way through to clean them.

A rental car is a must for this condo. Apart from the beach bar next door (quite nice, reasonably priced, worth a visit), there is nothing but resorts and houses/condos until you reach Puerto Morelos, which is a 45-minute walk one-way. Another advantage of a vehicle is easy access to many of the area's attractions. We visited Croco Zoo, near the condo, which is a bit pricey but definitely worth it, particularly realizing that the admission fees are their only source of funding. We also drove out to a cenote one afternoon for a dip, drove to the Yal Ku lagoon for snorkelling (recommended), and down to Tulum. We didn't visit any of the heavily-advertised pricey tourist sites starting with X (Xcaret, Xplor, Xel-ha) but they might be worth it for older kids.

The condo is NOT particularly child-proof, at least for < 2 or so. There is a long, stone staircase (safety gate available), and the living room/dining room/kitchen have 2 stone steps up/down, making it slightly challenging even for older adults. The pool is unfenced, shallow enough for our 5-year olds in one area, but not the rest. The ocean was great when we were there, though, with easy waves and shallow sand out to the seagrass beds - good for little ones.

Overall, loved Puerto Morelos!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I appreciate very much. I am glad you and your loved ones had a great holiday with quality time and memories that were made. I will have to ask from now on ages as the two stairs from living room to kitchen did not think it would be a challenge, but noted and ty for bringing it to my attention. Yes our pool area is a very open concept and to be honest its not luck that the 7 villa complex was not occupied as I am the only one who rents out our Villa and the rest of the owners come once or twice a year. It does states laundry services are available, but never owned at washer or dryer I will take that off my description so there is no confusion. I thank you for the feedback it what makes us better at what we do. Pilar and Adrian are beautiful people and we are lucky and blessed to have them as our team. Once again thank you for your stay and please do not hesitate to look us up for future holidays. Andrea
