  • Comfortable studio

    "My husband and I had a great week's stay at Steve and Sue's Chac-Ha studio. The instructions sent to us prior to arriving were very informative and easy to follow ie. opening the key box. The studio met all of our expectations and more including a safe for valuables and as per our request the twin beds were combined into a king size bed. Arrangements to use the Reef hotel's amenities was arranged by Steve and it was great to relax on a lounge at the beach or swim in the ocean. We were able to bring our own refreshments and did not purchase the all inclusive option at the Reef hotel. The pool at the condo provided a relaxing ending to a perfect day at the beach. The pool/patio overlooks a local golf course. The walk to town via the beach or sidewalk/road was a pleasant 30 minute stroll. Food/snack items were purchased at Walmart and we cooked breakfast each morning, lunches and dinners were eaten at restaurants on 5th Ave. Steve and Sue were very accommodating hosts and made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. Thanks so much!!!!!"

  • Wonderful location with "Mexican" flavor

    "We spent 4 days at Palma Cocos, what a wonderful condo! It looks very quaint, like old Mexico with tiles and adobe. The greatest part is the location, only a block from 5th ave and 5 minutes from the beach. And its QUIET at night! Some friends of ours stayed on the beach near Calle 14, and were kept up by loud music and talking all night. The apartment is a little dated, but cute and clean. There are lots of movies and DVD's. The pool on the roof is beautiful, with great night views. Jose the caretaker is very helpful. We had a great time there, can't wait to go back! Brent the owner sent a nice info packet with all the particulars about the apartment and area."

  • Home away from home!

    "My husband and I rented this unit for our two week vacation. During this time my family joined us for a week. We have rented condos before in PDC, however, this is the nicest unit we have ever had the opportunity of renting. This three bedroom/3 bathroom was perfect. The bedrooms each have their own bathroom, which our guests commented on how nice that was. The bedrooms are big, and comfortable! The living room is extremely well furnished, we like to relax in the evening and this living room was so comfy, beautiful leather furniture, large screen tv, and most important for us, a nice CD player, with pretty good sound. This kitchen is large, great for making dinners in and there is a bbq off the kitchen. When we arrived at noon, the lady was still cleaning the unit, and I have to admit, the unit was completely spotless when she was finished. She came back during our stay twice more and did an awesome job cleaning up. This is a unit that the owner clearly cares about and has taken care to hire excellent property management. So much pride in his unit...it really felt like our home while we were there. We did not want to leave, and when we go back again, we will make our stay longer. The owner was very accommodating to our many questions as was property management. The photos all though are accurate, does not really capture how big the unit is, the unit is larger than the pictures appear. We highly recommend this unit for a vacation in Playa del Carmen."

  • Heaven in Playa car

    "this unit met all our expectations. The staff was very attentive and helpful and the restuarants were great and really reasonably priced. The beach beds were the best for lying around in the sun. It was so easy to get around from there and beautiful to walk either on the beach or thru the exclusive residential area of playa car. There is so much to do in the area you will never get bored. Although a little boredom on the beach is kind of special too. We will definitely be back. Barb"
