“Relaxing, Comfortable & Memorable!”
Our stay at Villa Xa’An was outstanding and both the house’s amenities & location as well as Rick’s hospitality made this our best Airbnb experience to date. We traveled to Puerto Morelos to relax, spend a memorable vacation with our teenagers, and enjoy the calm beaches of this charming town. Suffice to say that Rick made sure our expectations were not only met, but exceeded! At the airport, we were met by Rick’s transportation agent, making our transportation easy and hassle-free. Upon arrival to the house, we were met by Rick himself & a selection of cold beverages and snacks to kick-off our stay. The house is ideally located in a quiet street of the developing side of town, 1 block away from the grocery store, a 5-10 min cab drive to the beach/downtown/variety of restaurants, & accessible to tours to ruins & other landmarks. While we spent a couple of days at Playa Unico/Unico Beach, we spent a couple of marvelous days at the house swimming for hours on end, grilling, reading on the lounge chairs by the pool, listening to music & enjoying outdoor meals. On the one day it rained, Netflix made movie day/night possible: popcorn included! Because of the house’s central location, we were able to arrange a day trip to Xel Ha where Rick’s transportation agent drove us to/from at an affordable rate and customized to our timeline. We also spent an afternoon horseback riding at Rancho Bonanza followed by more time at the pool & a delicious dinner in town. Throughout our week long stay, Rick stopped by to clean the pool every day, responded to inquiries, provided valuable advice & arrangements for day trips/restaurants/etc, and - on the last day - took a family picture that reminds us of how fortunate we were to spend such a lovely time as a family in Villa Xa’An. We can’t wait to go back!
Response from the owner Dulce; it is a pleasure reading your comments and knowing the efforts are worth while. Thank you so much, I look forward to having you back for a return visit in the near future.
“Excellent accomodation and host”
Excellent accommodation exactly as shown on web site. Ideal for three couples or family reunion. Private access to pool area from each bedroom. Owner (Rick) always available by phone or internet takes care of every detail, including cleaning pool and deck area daily. Location is just north of Colonia, a short bike (three provided at no additional cost) or taxi ride to the beach and downtown area. Excellent base for day trips to the surrounding area. Stayed the month of March, 2015. Sunny, hot & dry the whole month. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay highly recommend this property.
Response from the owner Many, many thanks; as always, it is reassuring knowing the efforts to provide personalised service and good, clean, affordable accommodation is noticed.
“So perfect, booked again for next year!”
Myself, my husband, my sister and her husband spent two weeks at the Villa and loved it so much we booked again for 2016. The house is exactly as pictured and the grounds are wonderful. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen well supplied with everything you need. Spent many hours around the pool enjoying the trees and the birds. Rick is as great as everyone has stated. He was around to ensure that things were kept clean and always there to answer any questions we had. The Colonial area of Puerto Morelos is great and would strongly advise a walking tour with Anna to get to know where everything is. Loved heading to the fruiteria every day for fresh produce and juice. The beach is a short cab ride away and we would head out there most days to enjoy the sun and ocean. A wonderful vacation spot!
Response from the owner Thank you! I'm so looking forward to having you back. Warm regards. Rick
“The best place of our trip in Yucatan this summer ! All the confort you dream of in your holidays”
We travelled 3 weeks around Yucatan/ Quintana ROO/ Campeche area and wanted to relax for the last 3 days in a quiet place on the Riviera Maya. We chose Puerto Morelos because it was quiet and relax and indeed it is ! No big hotel, no crowd, the beach is large and nice. We could enjoy some snorkeling experience with a tour on a lancha. But the very good surprise was the Villa !! So much comfort (better than home !) : air conditioning in all the rooms and the living room, nice pool area, kitchen fully equipped with all the things you might dream of to cook. Rick was a fantastic host, welcoming us with fresh drinks and champaign and coming every morning to take care of the pool and checking that everything was OK (while respecting our privacy). There are only small supermarkets in the area and some shops selling fruits, vegetables and meat so you can cook at the villa or you can go to Puerto Morelos beach (3 km away) and enjoy a lot of restaurants (we recommend the Mercadito !) Important : you need a car if you want to stay there - it is quiet because it is a bit outside of the big roads !
“Exceeds all Expectations”
Before I arrived I thought Villa Xa'An was too good to be true, but I promise that it does not disappoint. Everything about this place exceeded all expectations that I had. It is located in Puerto Morelos which is smaller and not too touristy. Cancun, Playa del Carmen and other destinations are all nearby and easy to get to by bus or taxi. The local beach is a short cab ride away or you could rent bikes/mopeds to get around, you could even walk to the beach if you wanted. Puerto Morelos is amazing, it has a nice beach, friendly people, beautiful cenotes (little lakes made by rainwater, some of them are just caves you can swim through), great food options and lots of local culture that doesn't feel too manufactured for tourists. The house was good sized with enough space for all 6 people in my traveling group. Everything inside and out is clean and well maintained. It has had all the amenities you could need (and more). The pool and back patio area were great for evening card games and swimming. We stayed for eight nights and there was a maid that came through twice and did the best cleaning job I have ever seen. I could stop right here and have given this place a two thumbs up, five stars, recommend to everyone rating. What really sets this place apart is Rick. He is so helpful and pleasant and just genuinely a nice and cool guy. He stops by every morning to clean the pool and sweep/tidy up outside and he does so without disturbing you. We all looked forward to seeing him and chatting with him in the morning. He helped us set up airport transportation, directed us to local businesses and even sorted a taxi miscommunication. He always offers helpful tips/advice and he gave us a phone number that we could call him at (he provides a local cell phone to use) in case we got in a jam with anything. He embodies great hospitality service and makes you feel right at home. If you have a chance I recommend staying here, I know that I look forward to making a return visit.
“Xa'An is the best place I've ever stayed”
Xa'An was an amazing place to stay. The house is beautiful and well maintained. The beach and great dining are a short bike or cab ride away. Afterward, the house's pool was great for relaxing. The best part was Rick, the owner. He checked on us regularly, gave us activity advice, and even sorted out some snags in transport back to the airport for us. I couldn't image a better destination for a group to stay.
“Awesome stay off the beaten track”
Rick's house is located in a quiet part of Puerto Morelos that provides easy access to all of the stuff you want to do, but is far away enough to make you feel like a local. The house is safe, clean, very well apportioned and plenty of space for as many as 6 people. You could easily enjoy your entire stay just lounging by the pool and enjoying the sun. Rick is always available and is beyond accommodating. He has many connections around town and does his work to make sure you are connected with good people (e.g. taxi services). The house is close enough to the beach that you could rent a bike for your stay and cruise down there each day. There are house stays and then there is Rick's amazing house in Puerto Morelos. Prepare to have your expectations blown away and the vacation of your life.
We stayed at Villa Xa'An for the month of February with family and friends. I have to say that our host Rick is most gracious and could not do enough for us. The home is emaculate, very clean and well equipped with everything that we needed and again Rick was most willing to make sure that we were comfortable in our stay. This home is located in the colonia of Morelos about 4 km from the beach and for 25 pesos you could grab a taxi and be at the beach. Stores were just a short walk away where we could buy fresh fruit and veg. There was also a butcher shop and a bakery where we visited on a daily basis. Make sure to explore the whole town because there are many great places to shop and eat. This was definately our home away from home and I'm sure we will be back!!
The house is wonderful, the yard and pool fantastic. And the owner is very helpful and keeps the yard and pool in perfect condition. Rick, the owner, will do everything he can to make your stay great. Thank you Rick!
I spent 2 weeks there this month, February 2014 with family and friends, the place is wonderful! Rick, the owner is such a wonderful person, he will do anything for you, he is 100% about customer service. We were calling him our "pool boy" as he comes by every day to sweep up, clean the pool and whatever else needs looking after. The home is gorgeous. The area is handy, 3 nice restaurants within a couple blocks, fresh fruit & vegggie markets, bakery and convenience stores. Would definitely recommend this place!
Response from the owner Louisd;Many, many thanks for your kind words, it was a sheer pleasure having you in Villa Xa'An and fortunate to have guests like you, your family, Frank and Monique. Hopefully I'll have you all back for a second visit and have the opportunity to look after you all once again. Sincerely, Rick
