We stayed at Casa Toucan in Unit 4 the last week of October 2017. We had never been to Puerto Morelos but plan to return as soon as we can. The studio was perfect for 2 people. We enjoyed coffee and the sunrise on our private balcony overlooking the beach every morning. We had the opportunity to view all of the rooms and they all had very well appointed kitchens, great decor, comfy beds and amazing views. Jon, his son and the housekeeper (I hate that I do not recall her name as she was so friendly and helpful) were all very attentive and available. They took the time to share information and just chat if you wanted to. The pool was very nice and beautiful. The room/condo was centrally located to the town square and was in easy walking distance to the local store and many great restaurants and bar. The property is small and offers lots of privacy. You can't get much closer to the beach than Casa Toucan.
This unit at Casa Toucan is the ideal set-up for a couple, or party of 2 that doesn’t mind sharing a queen bed. As first time visitors to Puerto Morelos, we had no idea what to expect from the property, and were blown away by the accommodations, location, and hospitality of Jon and Alicia. After thoroughly exploring the length of the beach and around town during our trip, we can confidently say there is no other place we would have rather spent a relaxing five nights than Casa Toucan.
We heard about Casa Toucan from friends of friends, and booked several nights before Christmas for a sunny getaway before the holidays. The apartment was impeccably clean and tidy, stocked with kitchen essentials, and stayed nice and cool from the ocean breeze. High speed WiFi was accessible throughout the compound, and access even reached to the beach in front of the property.
Markets were just minutes away on foot - perfect for buying fresh, local options to cook for breakfast (our fav), while restaurants for all types of fare were walking distance as well. The stretch of beach in front of the property is beautiful for relaxing and swimming, and a popular snorkeling spot is less than 10 minutes walking along the beach.
Jon and Alicia were friendly and gracious, and provided stellar recommendations from food and drinks to snorkeling spots and an in-room masseuse (10/10!). On our last night they hosted a gathering that included a performance by an incredible local musician who played guitar like a dream - one of the highlights of my trip.
We felt completely at ease and at home at Casa Toucan, and couldn’t have asked for anything more. Can’t wait to return!
Wonderful location, beautiful lodging, fantastic people. Beachfront access as week as small pool. Dining right outside the door on the street.
My husband and I had two nights here at the start of our Mexico holiday. The room is exactly as described and very well equipped. You could not get a better location! Jon the host provided a very comprehensive pack on the resort in advance which was very useful. He was available to help us and a great host. The grounds with the pool are lovely. Would recommend to anyone.
Casa Toucan is wonderful! The owner Jon went out of his way to make sure that I felt comfortable and welcomed before arriving and during my stay!He provided extensive information before my arrival. If I had a question or needed anything while there he was just a phone call away. Casa Toucan #4 is located right on the beach. I spent many hours relaxing on the balcony enjoying the beautiful ocean view. Most nights I was able to sleep with the window and sliding door open, listening to the wave gently kiss the shore. Paradise! The grounds was very clean and so was the condo. I will stay at Casa Toucan again.
Thank you Jon!
Can't say enough good things about the view, accommodations and owners.
Would like to keep this place all to myself but the cats out of the bag. Going back in November and hopefully much more.
Thank you Jon, Alicia, Jon Conner
