We stayed at Villa Karina for ten nights in late October 2016. The Villa is exactly as advertised. The patio and pool are beautifully decorated and very private. There's a great view of the ocean from the patio, but people walking by on the beach can't see in. Enrique raked the beach each day and Francisco kept the pool clean. The housekeeper kept the house immaculate.
The Villa is beautifully decorated and there are great views from the balcony off the master bedroom and from the rooftop deck. The A/C kept the Villa comfortable.
Dora arranged a private dive for us and also for a snorkel boat to pick us up at our beach and take us to the reef for a guided snorkel. It's a short 25 minute walk down the beach to Puerto Morelos where there are many restaurants and a market for groceries.
Dora was very helpful in planning our trip and was our private concierge once we arrived. She arranged for Danny to prepare dinner for us at the Villa one evening. Another night she got on the phone with our lost taxi driver to guide him back to the Villa. And she restocked our groceries mid-way through our stay.
We recommend bringing water shoes if you plan on walking in the ocean. Taxis arrive within minutes, but tell your driver that you're staying at Villa Karina on Calle Carey. Finally, there's WiFi in the Villa, but high-speed internet hasn't yet reached Puerto Morelos.
We had a great vacation and would recommend Villa Karina without reservation.

Our favorite Beachfront Villa. This rental has it all inside and out , top to bottom. We first stayed at Villa Karina (1 week ) after Hurricane Wilma , what a mess......all around Villa Karina , the Villa held up well , I say this because , we were amazed at how well the villa was built. The original Owner Had a very good eye for Design and furnishing's , a nice blend of wood and marble. There 's a great view from every room . The grounds and pool are top notch and private.
