                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Welcome to Playa del Carmen and and welcome to Mi Casa Amarilla! 'My Yellow House' is located in the famous gated Playacar Golf & Spa community & within a 2 minute walk to the white sandy beaches and within a 2 minute walk to the famous '5th Avenue', where an abundance of shopping and restaurants are located. Situated in the elite, little neighborhood within Playacar, called Villas del Mayab, this home is also next to the #3 fairway for the famous par 72, Playacar golf course, designed by Robert Von Hagge and stretching 7,144 yards. Surrounded by a diversity of lakes and exuberant vegetation, this course is considered to be the most challenging in this region. Another benefit to Mi Casa Amarilla is that our guests have use of The Reef Playacar Resort - 'Reef Club'. This offers you another choice for private beach, pools and common areas. Located just 3/4 mile beyond Mi Casa Amarilla, an easy stroll down the sidewalk, The Reef Club also offers all inclusive daily packages for drinks and food, if desired. There's really no need for a car at this casa, as everything you need is within a 5 minute walk! Whether is golfing, beaching or exploring Mayan ruins or cenotes, this region of Mexico offers something for everyone of all ages.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: We are both born and raised 'Virginians' but have always had a love for travel to wonderful sunny locations! We currently live in Charlottesville, VA, also known as the famous home for the 3rd President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson.

                      Why the Owner Chose Villas del Mayab:
                      After traveling to many areas throughout all of Mexico in the past 15 years, the beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal blue water of Playa del Carmen called our name. We love the location of 'Playa' as it offers 2 easy airports ~ Cancun International is 40 minutes North of Playa and Cozumel International is a 30 minute ferry ride to Playa. We researched locations all over the Mexican Riviera, before settling on Mi Casa Amarilla. We love this location in this gated Playacar community as we are a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to all shopping and restaurants on 5th Avenue. There is really no need for a car when you are at Mi Casa Amarilla! Additionally, this home offers usage of the par 72 Playacar Golf Course and we are located at hole #3 ~ This home is spacious beautifully appointed and comfortable for a small or large group.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      This home really gives you a lovely Mexican feel, with the red tile roofs, tile flooring and granite throughout. We have added all the comforts of our US home to this Mexican home and complemented with original Mexican artwork. We love relaxing with an ice cold drink in our private plunge pool in the evenings!
