We had a lovely stay at Catriona's place! Communication was very easy -- we didn't meet Catriona herself but she was readily available on mobile, and her friend Liz met us with the keys and was very helpful in recommending restaurants, taxi companies etc. The house is a few blocks from the beach in a quiet, well-kept neighborhood -- and is also a short walk from the central plaza of Puerto Morelos (with lots of restaurants and shops). The house is very clean, and looks newly (and tastefully) renovated. The kitchen is very well-equipped, including drinking water, coffee maker, etc. There is a washer-dryer (super helpful if you're traveling for a while), and plenty of comfy, serene sitting areas for just hanging out. We could not recommend more highly, and would love to stay there again if we're ever back in Puerto Morelos!

Great house, as described. There were three of us and we had more than enough space, with room to spare. Catriona was super helpful and there to answer any questions, and folks around town offered lots of tips and advice as well. Just a quick walk to the playa, the house was a perfect central spot for a week in Riviera Maya. Highly recommend.

We are new to air b&b so the were a little apprehensive. We were a late checkin & house wasn't unlocked & couldn't get ahold of anyone . Took about an hour After that ... everything went great . The house was roomy , clean, nice appliances . Enjoyed the pool & sun in the roof We could only get Netflix to work on the tv one day but that wasn't an issue for us A wifi extender would be nice bc the wifi didn't work by the pool ( for music ) or in the east 2 nd floor bedroom The mattress in the west bedroom Wasn't comfy The downstairs bedroom only Had a sectional unit, not a bed. House would Comfortably would sleep 4. We enjoyed the house & would stay again

Response from Catriona:
Hi Sabrina, we didn't know you wanted the 3rd bedroom as you checked in as 2 couples, so we didn't open up, or put sheets on, the very comfy sofa bed that is in that room. Double bed size. We take note of the other issues and wish you had let us know so that we could have fixed the bed and wifi. We look forward to welcoming you again

Casa Gaviota is a great place to stay in Puerto Morelos. The house is very well designed and very comfortable, on a quiet street just a few blocks from the beach. The town is small, authentic, quite walkable and safe. And easy and fast to get to from the Cancun airport. A great value!

This was one of the best experiences we have had traveling.. anywhere. The house was just as described – simple, clean and comfortable. While the dip pool was small, it served the purpose well. The small screened in porches up and down are great and useful. We will be back because of the location, value and ease of working with Liz and Catriona. Their hospitality is special. The town and its’ people were delightful. The food was wonderful every place we went to eat. We are going back and staying longer.

Casa Gaviota is a beautiful, spacious, clean and wonderful place to stay in the sweet little town of Puerto Morelos. It is an easy walk to great restaurants and shops, as well as a beautiful pristine beach. Check in and check out was easy and smooth. Catriona was accessible and her assistant Liz was very nice and helpful. All in all I would highly recommend this place. We had two families with kids and it was a great blessing to be in one house all together that was so nice and affordable. We will definitely be back again!

I am an Australian who has been living in Puerto Morelos since 2002. This little town changed my life, I have owned and sold a dive shop, bought land and built 4 houses, building three more now. I love to travel the world and i now play polo as well. So I used to dive when I travelled and now I look for polo destinations.
