once again we had a great stay at casa toucan love the feel of the place everything top notch wonderful beach front location we will be back next year
My husband and I have been coming to Puerto Morelos for years and love the town. This year we spent our first night (only one) at Casa Toucan. One night is not enough!
Casa Toucan is a lovely small property. The four apartment units are right on the beautiful Puerto Morelos beach and essentially right in town (1/2 block to town square.) Proximity: A++.
Our unit, Casa Toucan 3, was small but beautifully and recently redecorated. The most amazing thing about this apartment is the view of the ocean. You can see the ocean from bed. You can watch the sunrise in the morning and the tourist boats at night from the privacy of your terrace. The view is breath taking. Amenities A++.
All units have air conditioning on demand. Everything was clean and tidy. The owner, Jon, is very attentive to detail. He is personable and wants to promote a feeling of well-being among his guests. This is a great place to stay. Management A++.
Condo is cozy but has everything you need for a fabulous vacation with a very comfy bed and hot shower. Beautiful beach, with stunning views, close to town square and many fabulous restaurants. Lovely pool with a hot tub to enjoy on a cooler day or when the sun goes down. Very knowledgeable and gracious hosts provide you with all the information you need up front to make your stay stress free and awesome. Will definitely go back!
The location is the best in Puerto Morelos. I would like to keep Casa Toucan my own little secret, but you know how it is. When you find something so special you just have to share your experience with someone. This is the very first review that I've ever written. I love reading reviews, but I just never would take the time to write one myself. Casa Toucan is so special that i had to tell readers about it. When you stay at Casa Toucan you are litterally staying at the finest section of beach in Puerto Morelos. It feels like you are able to move your wonderful balcony out on to the sand, you are litterally just feet from the water. Its the best. You are Only a 2 minute walk to town square, the resturants, stores, taxis etc. My wife and I stayed the month of January in this beautiful town, and we are absolutely in love with it, and its people. I can't say enough about the great food and friendly smiles at every turn. My wife and I stayed in Casa Toucan #3 and #4. Both are small but very clean and well equipped. Excellent bed, bath and kitchen. The small size was not a problem for my wife and I because we spent our time on the balcony. One of my main requirements when I'm away from home is a comfortable bed and Casa Toucan nailed that. There are no TV channels to watch, but Jon, the owner has a very good movie library to choose from if you can find time for a movie. The owners were available at all times for answers to questions, for recommendations or a quick spanish lesson if thats what you are in need of. They are truly there to make your stay with them as good as it can possibly be. They love their town and they work hard so that you will love it too. Thank you Jon and Alicia, the memories you helped us to create will remain with us forever.
My husband and I just returned from our fourth year of staying at Casa Toucan in Puerto Morelos. This year we stayed 3 weeks in #3, the lower casita and our grown children joined us for a week in #4, the upper casita. We have stayed in other units at Casa Toucan, as well, in previous years. There is nothing we DON't like about Casa Toucan. We like the on-site owners who are friendly, helpful and keep the place clean and worry free. We love the location on the beach (just steps to the water) and 1/2 a block to the Town Square with nightly entertainment and some great restaurants. Although my husband and I don't usually use the small pool or hot tub my children used it daily. We've already booked again for next year!
7 Times a Winner!
This summer marks the 7th time my wife and I will vacation at CASA TOUCAN. This trip we're being joined by family and friends and will enjoy the entire tropical oasis for our week-long stay.
We almost hate to write such a great review in fear that our special Puerto Morelos hideaway will become too popular!
Delightful unit #3 sits directly on the beach and is always our couples choice. And now since the recent addition of the raised and covered patio, it is better than ever providing spectacular views and the right amount of privacy. And those desirable features apply to all 4 accommodations!
Prior to discovering Casa Toucan, Heather and I stayed at more than a half-dozen different condos and hotels from one end of Puerto Morelos to the other in our never-ending search for just the right place. We finally found our Shangri -La.
Easy walk to restaurants, the Pier, shops, and the Square - literally a minute or two - but uniquely tucked away and out of range from any noise. Beach strolls to Palapa bars are required rituals as is the welcome and refreshing cool, pool dip after.
Hosts Jon & Alicia are most accommodating and friendly and adept at evaluating their guests' needs and wishes. Always informative and helpful, with respect for your privacy.
The property is both attractively designed and landscaped - most inviting.
No need to wonder why beach-goers take a 2nd of 3rd look when passing by. Casa Toucan is extraordinary in vintage Puerto Morelos.
We booked Casa Toucan 3 and 1 for a group of 6 friends. It worked well. Casa Toucan 3 is a very modern well designed compact studio. It located right on the beach and next to the pool, and a 2 minute walk from the main square. We loved the very laid back fishing village aspect of Puerto Morelos as opposed to the over developed concrete jungle of Cancun.
The patio at the front of the studio is a perfect place to sit and watch the world pass by - and enjoy sundowners.
The pool and hot tub are a great place to chill out. Lovely tropical gardens. Our friends were in Casa Toucan 1 - the two bedroom unit. We did all our cooking over there but if it had been just us, the studio kitchen would have met our needs.
Jon is an excellent host with lots of great advice on how best to enjoy Puerto Morelos. Looking forward the opportunity to visit again as we had a fantastic relaxing vacation.
