I returned to Casa Toucan because I enjoyed my first visit so much, and stayed in this amazing condo for four nights. The second floor deck had incredible views of the ocean and beach from three directions. It was lovely to float in the good sized pool and look over the ocean. The condo was well equipped and comfortable, and the whole property very clean and well maintained. The casa is close to the main square and many excellent restaurants. The owner, Jon, provided a very thorough pre-arrival package of information about the casa and town. He was also very helpful in answering any questions I had.
This was our third time at Casa Toucan and will return next year. It ranks at the top of every category; location, amenities, cleanliness, owners, security, ambience and value. I really cannot say enough about how much we value our time at Casa Toucan. Mucho gracias Jon & Alicia.
Been coming to Casa Toucan for many years now and it never disappoints! Lovely town of Puerto Morelos with its friendly folks, many great restaurants and a wonderful beach. Who could ask for more?!!!
Just as with any real estate, the location is everything. Casa Toucan #3 and #4 puts you right on the sand at the best section of beach in town. My wife and I stayed in this wonderful town for the month of January. We stay 15 days in Toucan 3 and 6 days in #4. We walked the beach many times looking at other locations to stay and nothing compares to Casa Toucan. Just steps to the water, bueatiful clean pool, litterally a two minute walk to Town Square for restaurants, stores, entertainment, everything the town has to offer. The owners, Jon and Alicia are the best. They live on the property and have the answers to any questions you may have. As guests of Jon and Alicia you have the advantage of omitting any trial and error on your decisions. If there is something you want to do, you can draw on their years of experience in Puerto Morelos, whether it be restaurants, stores, tours, etc. Jon and Alicia are very proud of Casa Toucan and Puerto Morelos and it shows when you are there. Very clean, well thought out and well equipped. Not much extra room in #3 & #4, but has everything my wife and i required. We spent our time outside on the balcony or elsewhere. When you are inside it has a great bed, small but very accomodating kitchen and bath. When I'm away from home one of my requirements is cleanliness and Casa Toucan nailed that. I had mixed emotions while writting this review. I fill like I found a paradise here and want to share it with others but at the same time i know that by sharing it makes it harder for me to book for myself. I thank the owners for helping my wife and I to create beautiful memories that will remain with us forever. I give Casa Toucan and Puerto Morelos an A+.
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.
