There are other bus companies that run all night in case you want to stay out later than 12:00 pm.

Puerto Morelos is a tranquil fishing town, it offers a friendly alternative to the big-city atmosphere of Cancun or the congestion of Playa del Carmen.
The tranquil white-sand beaches of Puerto Morelos are protected by the world's second largest barrier reef, which provides a safe swimming and water sport environment not found in Cancun, where strong currents frequently put swimmers at risk.

  • Rick is an incredibly hard working, generous and hospitable host -- the best we have ever encountered (and the best we probably ever will). My friends and I could not believe how far Rick was willing to go to ensure our comfort in his rental home and in Puerto Morelos. He made time to follow up with different vendors in town to make certain they were reputable and trustworthy. He set up our airport transfer, giving detailed directions to the house in Spanish that we could not have provided. Groceries, sunscreen, bug spray and precious margarita ingredients were purchased ahead of time for us, so the house was stocked full with whatever we needed (we just had to reimburse him upon arrival). The local cell phone and VOI phone provided were priceless additions as well. We used the cell for calling our taxi and contacting Rick for help. Two of our travelers actually lost their debit cards during day trips and the VOI phone was awesome to call the banks from. Rick came to the house every morning of our stay to skim the pool and tend to the yard and answer any questions we had for our daily outing, etc. It was always awesome seeing his smiling face greet us in the morning!

    The house -- it's amazing. The photos here give you a great idea of what it's like, but they still don't do it justice. It's spotless, modern, comfortable and stocked to the brim with everything you could possibly need in terms of utensils, comfort, technology and security. The pool was the best thing to come home to at night to either dip your aching feet in or go for a cooling swim. Villa Xa'An is in the colonia, the non-touristy part of town, which made it ideal for us. We were able to get a feel for how the real residents of Puerto Morelos live, rather than knocking shoulders with other tourists of the playa area all week. But, of course, we wanted easy access to the beach, too, so we rented bikes and easily rode those back and forth (10 minutes each way on bike).

    I cannot describe in appropriate words how amazing this house is and how spectacular a job Rick does. He is a top-notch expert in hospitality and just a wonderful human to have met. Our group is already talking about how soon we can get back to this place and rent from him again. We fell in love with Puerto Morelos here, and perhaps with Rick, too! :)

    Mil gracias, Rick! You are one of a kind! Our experience in Puerto was so amazing and so much of it is thanks to you. You blew our minds with your hospitality and generosity and the beautiful home you work so hard to keep up.

  • Villa is magnificent and very comfortable, there are everything - from spoons to pool. And how it is pleasant in a hot day to pour cold water with ice, which was enough in villa. Trifle, but nice. Rick, thank you very much for the attention and care you have shown. You are the true owner of your villa and master of your business. I wish You prosperity and a lot of good clients. And they are and will be!

  • My family of 4 just returned from a fabulous week at Villa Xa'an. Rick is an exceptional host and his house exceeded our expectations.

    Rick's attention to detail is remarkable. He was ready and waiting for us at the house when we arrived. A chilled bottle of wine awaited us inside along with cold juices for our kids. He provided a mobile phone for local calls and the internet phone was very useful for calling home at no charge! The wifi worked flawlessly and the big screen tv with Netflix was well used in the evenings! Each room has air conditioning but we preferred using the ceiling fans and opening the many windows and screened doors.

    The place is spotless inside and out. Rick came every day to tidy the pool area, make up the beds, freshen the towels and make sure everything was running smoothly at Villa Xa'an.

    Rick provided lots of useful information about the local area with tips on transportation, restaurants, shopping and tourist destinations.

    The street is very safe and the house is close to taxi stands and bus stops. There are 2 great restaurants within minutes of the house. There is also a convenience store at the end of the street. Local fruit markets are within minutes of the front door.

    A final note... on the last day, our 16 yr old daughter had a severe allergic reaction to a fly bite. Rick had called to arrange our departure. When he learned we were in a local clinic getting our daughter a shot for her reaction, he immediately drove from Playa Del Carmen to offer support. Above and beyond the call of duty.

    Thanks to Rick for providing an ideal location for our holiday in Mexico! We'll be back my friend.

    Cheers, Jeff, Tati, Milly and Max

  • My family just returned to upstate New York after visiting Beautiful Puerto Morelos, and staying at Villa Xa'An. We had a most perfect vacation. Rick is a kind, gracious host with impeccable attention to detail. The house is not only spotless, but equipped with all of the amenities that make it the perfect getaway. Rick was also prompt and detailed in all communication with us before and during our stay. Puerto Morelos is a lovely vacation destination. We enjoyed 4 out of 6 days in town, on the beach, and enjoying the beautiful pool at the house. The other 2 days were perfect for visiting Tulum and Akumal. Rick was so helpful in making recommendations when we were looking for support. The only thing we could ask for is another week or so of vacation time to spend in this lovely home and in beautiful Puerto Morelos. Thank you Rick for helping make our stay just perfect. We will certainly come back and recommend this location/house to friends.

  • I stayed 12 days in Villa Xa'an, with boyfriend and three kids.
    The house is amazing! So clean and nice. Air condition in every room, fully equipped kitchen with every gadget you could think of and everything felt brand new. The beds are great and bathrooms aswell.
    Having our own pool felt fantastic. Our kids hardly wanted to leave the house.
    We had a few days of rain and having Netflix in the huge tv saved those days.
    The possibility to easily do laundry helped a lot too.
    Last but not least, the host Rick is incredibly helpful and came everyday to clean the pool and the area around. When ever needed he also had the house cleaned. My daughter had her tenth birthday in the house and Rick ordered and picked up a delicious cake for us. I honestly could'nt think of a better host.

  • We had a wonderful time. Rick is an outstanding host, he provides advice and takes care of every little detail to make sure his guests enjoy their stay. The property is excellent. Very quiet, secure, clean and with all the amenities we could think of. The location is good for exploring the surroundings. It is best to rent a car to move around. There are so many great things about Rick's place I cannot list them all! It is a highly recommended place to stay. We enjoyed every day we spent there and would definitely go back.

  • Rick was the perfect host from the beginning giving us lots of information on what to do and where to go...by the time we arrived, we already felt at home. The house is perfectly located between all the places you will like to visit and just 5 minutes from the beach.. The pool was so great to come home to every day, so inviting..the house was cleaned every day which was soo nice...the house is just like the pictures... beautiful...we even had fresh fruit awaiting us.. Rick was always available for a quick question and even drove half way to Cancun to give us our tablet that we had left behind... I would recommend his house to anybody who is planning a trip to the Riviera Maya, perfect for couples and family with children, you will have everything you want and more.. enjoy it there..

About
I'm a semi-retired, highly active individual with life long experience making sure the needs of guests are looked after beyond expectations. I started my service industry career in Canada back in the early 1970's since then and up until mid 2012 I worked for major, renowned hotel chains both in Canada and Mexico as senior manager. Once I arrived on the Mayan Riviera in the 1990's I knew I was home and quickly envision a small vacation rental business. In 2011 I stared with my first rental in Puerto Morelos and shortly after followed with a condo in Playa del Carmen. Proud of my new role as owner / host I enjoy welcoming guest from around the world and sharing with them the simple beauty, comfort and peacefulness of the Maya Riviera and the properties I rent throughout the year. With a clear view and long term commitment to service, service to my guests is of outmost importance, I take special pride on providing clean, well maintained properties always striving to surpass guest expectations.
