Keith and Elena Chamberlain purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Keith and Elena Chamberlain chose Playacar Fase II
We have lived all around the world and we fell in love with Playa del Carmen. We have looked all over for a retirement home and we finally found it to spend our winters and escape the cold weather; for now, we are happy to share this home with others. The beautiful white beaches and blue Caribbean waters of Playa del Carmen are mesmerizing. Playa offers so many options too. Cancun International Airport is only a 40 minute ride and Cozumel is an easy 40 minute ferry ride. The ferry is even within walking distance. Everything is within walking distance if you don't have a vehicle. If you want to rent a vehicle, there is a rental car location right outside of the Playacar gate.

Great home for ladies trip
We had a group of 6 friends stay in Casa Elena 2/2-2/9/19. The owners, Elena & Keith, were very responsive and easy to communicate with. The property managers, Tara & Luis, provided the best rental experience we ever had. They arranged transportation to and from the airport, and for a trip to Akumel and Tulum, and they pre-stocked the house with food and drinks for us. They checked in a few times while we were there and responded right away to any questions we had.
The house is spacious and super clean. We used the beach towels, chairs, coolers and tote bags that were provided. The 5 minute walk to the beach and to 5th avenue were super convenient.
A few small issues we found:
The bedroom air conditioners blew directly on 1 side of the bed, so it was hard to get the temperature just right for 2 people.
Extra pillows and blankets would have been nice-I know we should have asked, but only remembered in the middle of the night.
The furniture around the pool could use some TLC, as well as the area around the pool. We had great weather and went to the beach most days anyway, so it was not much of an issue.
Overall, we had a wonderful time at Casa Elena and would highly recommend the house to anyone.
Great house fantastic location
We just stayed six nights and it was great. This is a clean bright house. Wifi works great , beach is 5 minutes away and it is a nice walking area reminds me of Carmel by the Sea. The owners Keith and Elena are great. They responded quickly to all questions. Tara the person that greeted us was fantastic easy to contact and able to help us or direct us for anything Playa Del Carmen. Strongly recommend this place. It is 5 minutes from everything central if you want to visit Cozumel, Akumal, Tulum, Coba, Cancun they are all about 1 hour drive or ferry away. Also want to mention the transport service they offer is also fantastic. We had Alberto and Pavel both were great. We also did private tour with them and that is the best way to go when you are 4 or more. You get to go places that is not jammed with tourists. They will bring you to popular sights but can also bring you to quite local spots etc.
Thanks again Keith, Elena and Tara
Joe, I am happy your group enjoyed our home. Tara is awesome, and I don't think we could do this without her.
Please look at the last page of the welcome packet. Shoot me an email and let me know if there is anything I can improve in the home.
Did I not have something in the kitchen that you missed having at home? Did you need/find the First Aid kit? Did you have use of the sewing kit? Please do let us know, so we can buy/bring whatever you can think of.
Thank you for the review.
The perfect place to stay!
This house is WONDERFUL! First, the location couldn't be better...You can walk everywhere you need to be...5 min to the beach, 5 min to shopping on 5th Avenue, 15-20 min to many unique restaurants that will make you very full, and happy! The people in Mexico are so friendly, and cheerful, they are fun to be around.
Casa Elena is the BEST! there are 3 bedrooms with each having an en suite bathroom, plus there is also a full bath on the main floor. The bedrooms also all have their own balcony to sit on and relax, away from the whole gang at the house....6 ladies can make a lot of HAPPY NOISE!!! The kitchen is very modern, granite countertops, stainless appliances, lots of high grade pots and pans, good Cuisinart knives...we prepared many delicious meals in there...the grocery stores have great selections of fresh seafood, and beef , pork, and chicken, and so, so many fresh fruits and vegetables...Oh, and the bakery goods are unreal! They make their own tortilla shells, and there is fresh cactus cut up daily. Get some Pinterest recipes pulled up and ready to try out! We ate in the large dining area inside, and we also enjoyed the back patio where there is a large (seats 6) glass top table with comfy chairs. The evenings are so comfy with the palm plants all around the patio...feels like you are in the jungle....everything is so GREEN!
There is a great little bar in the sunken lilving room. We always had "mood music" from the stereo that is well supplied with a variety of music from country to the blues! The weather was so nice we never did turn on the TV so never watched the huge selection of movies that line the entertainment area!
Beach trips were a short walk away, we had 6 chairs with carrying straps, and a cooler for lunch. There is a boogie board to ride the waves, and plenty enough beach towels. I really enjoyed the very clean, LARGE pool just out our backdoor. Lots of lounge chairs, and shade is available when you need to get out of the wonderful SUN! Great place to read, and socialize with others you meet out there...we had travelers from Argentina, Guatemala, London, Canada, plus the USA!
Tara and Luis, the managers, are tireless, and respond cheerfully to all our questions and sometimes just stopped by to see if we needed anything...gotta LOVE 'em! Thanks You Two!
I can't say enough good things about Casa Elena as a PERFECT PLACE TO STAY in MEXICO!
Try it...You'll LOVE IT!
We are so happy you enjoyed our home and Playa del Carmen. I hope "The Ladies Group" keep us in mind for any future trips. We absolutely love sharing our home with people. We too, are still exploring all the areas around here. We went to the Jardin of Eden cenote yesterday and ended up swimming there most of the day. We also finally went swimming with the turles down in Akumel the other day. Hopefully you all enjoyed these places as well.
Thank you for your review,
Great location. Great home.
I stayed there with my family and the house was beautiful! The pool was the practically in the back yard and we were the only ones in it during our whole visit. The beach was only about a 5 minute walk and was gorgeous. Also, tons of shopping and restaurants were within walking distance as well. We did not have a rental car and did not need one. Tara, the property manager was a great help. She even helped us order pizza one day. I will definitely return. This was our first trip out of the USA and it was a great experience! I can’t wait to go back. If you want authentic food, you will find it. For those picky eaters (like my kids) there was McDonalds, Domino’s, Krispy Kreme, so you will definitely have the best of both worlds. I’m so glad we didn’t stay in a resort. This was perfect!!
Very clean and well maintained property
