"The villa is even more beautiful than the pictures portray. SUPER clean and spacious with excellent cleaning service throughout the week. Wonderful owners, always replied promptly to any questions and offered a lot of help with activities in the area. The neighbours were very welcoming and helpful and you never felt like a stranger. So much hospitality in their community of home owners! Was great to make meals when we wanted to or eat out at the large variety of restaurants nearby (try the beef from Super Carnes called Arrachera Nacional, incredible and an easy walk from the villa down to 1 Calle South and 20th Ave.) The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare meals and there were condiments to use which was nice to not have to buy much of that. We just replaced anything we used up. Felt very safe in Playacar and out on 5th Avenue which is about a 10-15 minute walk to the start. Good distance to the Mega grocery store and we walked there if we only wanted a few items otherwise took a taxi. Great to laze around the villa on the deck or in the pool, or go on an excursion. Xel-Ha was our favourite day trip, Tulum and Coba were amazing too. Lots of activities for a variety of age groups. The air conditioning was nice after a day in the hot sun. Overall a wonderful home away from home with the bonus of sun and beaches!"

"The process of renting this condo was absolutely seamless! Mr. Felser provided all the information needed as well as tourist activities and communication was always prompt. The condo is absolutely beautiful, clean and spacious. The beach in front was so relaxing and the pool made for very fun days for the kids. We felt very safe in the area and enjoyed experiencing different restaurants each night. Our favorite was the Argentina restaurant around 42nd Calle and 5th Avenue. Without hesitation, I would recommend this condo as it is even better in person than the pictures!"

"My husband, our 2 Chihuahuas and I just left Hill Haven after a 2 day stay. I can not say enough good things about this place. It was spotless, every little detail is thought through. Top of the line appliances in a beautiful kitchen. Wall mounted TV's in both rooms. Remote control fans, AC a gorgeous bathroom with walk in shower. Honestly the pictures do not do it justice. Everything you could possibly want to do in Playa is minutes away. Lizardo and his family were very nice and friendly, we thoroughly enjoyed meeting them. The king size bed was heaven, quality linens and simply gorgeous décor and furnishes throughout. We will definitely be back."

"Arena Blanca is one of the best kept secrets in Playa del Carmen. It is centrally located less than minutes from 5th Avenue, but in a fairly quiet side of town. The condo is beautifully decorated with native art and accents and is extremely private and comfortable and within walking distance of everything. The pool and the surrounding grounds are gorgeous and impeccably maintained. The staff are warm and accommodating. This is an extremely quiet complex with only eleven units total. The guests at this complex consisted of several families with children and alot of adult couples. Dealing with Shari and Lisa throughout the entire process was a delight. They were great at providing whatever information we needed and at addressing any personal issues we had immediately. They supplied us with a handy guide to restaurants and local places to see and things to do which proved to be most helpful. We wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else but Arena Blanca on our next trip to Playa del Carmen. Thank you Shari and Lisa for sharing this magical place with us. We loved it!"
