If you’ve made the decision to vacation in the tranquil fishing village called Puerto Morelos, then you’re already aware of the serenity and authentic Mexican flavor of this hidden jewel tucked between Cancun and Playa del Carmen and only 20 minutes from the Cancun International airport.
Condo Joya del Sol (Jewel of the Sun) captures the serene essence of Puerto Morelos. It is only a shell’s throw from the white-sand beach which is protected by the second-largest reef in the world — out the door and toes-in-the-sand within 15 seconds! It is just far enough to escape traffic and “busy-ness,” yet a leisurely ten-minute stroll to the Plaza, restaurants, and shops. Vacationing here, there is no need for a car.
Because of its overall privacy and outdoor living areas, this ground-level unit with partial ocean-view feels like a home. With 2000 square feet of living areas, this two-bedroom, two-bath condo is more spacious than any other that is so convenient to both beach and town. Stress melts away as one steps through the gate into the tropical-plant-enclosed entrance.
Of course, there is air conditioning, but this condo is perfectly situated to maximize the refreshing sea breezes. Decorative security bars on all windows and doors ensure safety while one lives and sleeps with windows wide-open to enjoy birdsongs, gentle waves, and palm fronds rustling in the breeze.
Although the condominium/home is not totally handicap assessable, it is certainly handicap-friendly, with sturdy railings on either side of the three-stair-steps down from the kitchen/dining area to the bedroom level. Both baths have handicap bars in showers and beside the toilets.
The kitchen, with its hand-forged copper sink, has an open view to the dining and living areas. Glass-block windows let in natural light, as does the oversize sliding glass door opening from the living room to the pool.
Joya del Sol was my primary home for two years, so the furniture is delightfully comfortable. Interior paint throughout is by local artist, Daryl Eady. Daryl’s art, as well as that by another Puerto Morelos legend, Franziska Schuett (Zissi), graces the walls.
The master suite is truly a Sacred Space, like entering a luxurious hacienda of yesteryear. The Frida-Red, metallic bronze-and-gold ceiling is original art by Daryl Eady. Bamboo shades cover sliding-glass doors opening to two private, tropical-plant-enclosed patios. Unlike most Mexican beds, this one is deliciously comfortable - with a 4” memory-foam mattress topper. The oversize master bath with shower compliments the exotic golden-and-bronze bedroom with soothing tones of ivory and taupe, blended and shaded upward and onto the twelve-foot-tall ceiling to create the feel of entering a Roman bath. That feeling is sustained with an intimate two-person jetted tub in its curved, recessed, tiled space. Custom lighting highlights double sinks and the dressing area.
The spacious guest room is a cheery Caribbean blue and lime green. With a large sliding-glass door onto a private patio that leads to the outside gate and on to the beach, this is a sunny retreat. The guest bath, painted a rich Mexican Colonial blue to compliment the custom talavera lavatory and mirror, has a roomy shower and jack-and-jill doors to the bedroom and the hall.
