Enjoy all of the updates in this family friendly 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath villa that is conveniently located in the gated community of PLAYACAR in phase 2 next to a beautiful, quiet beach and the famous 5th Avenue shopping district. The beach is 250 yards from the villa by strolling down a stone pathway that is shaded by tropical greenery. There are also Mayan ruins to observe on your way there! Enjoy an abundance of shopping and restaurants that are just a short 5 minute walk from our villa. Our villa is steps away from the 12th hole of the Championship Playacar Golf Course designed by Robert van Hagge and now run as the HARD ROCK golf course as well as the large shared pool and palapa. We are also located just a short walk away from the tropical Aviary (bird sanctuary). The villa backs up to it so at feeding times twice a day it is a little noisy !A 10-15 minute walk will take you to the Reef Club Resort where our guests as space is available can enjoy the facilities (beach chairs, pool and towel service) for no extra charge or for a daily discounted fee, you can enjoy the all inclusive priveledges. The Newly redone HARD ROCK golf Course is located across the street from the Reef Club as well as the Hard RockClub and Spa.

The large outdoor terrace will be your favorite spot. Enjoy morning coffee while listening to tropical birds, have breakfast at the outdoor table, or relax in the shade in lounge chairs for an afternoon nap. When evening arrives, BBQ on the gas grill while enjoying a cold drink!

A new kitchen with granite countertops and all new appliances will make preparing meals easy. The open floor plan allows for you and your family to all be together for meals , games, TV and just having fun. There is a bar area between the dining room and living room, perfect for serving drinks and snacks.

The three spacious bedrooms are all on the second floor. The master suite has a king sized bed with a balcony to enjoy your morning coffee while listening to tropical birds or reading a good book. The second bedroom is spacious and equipped with a king bed. The third spacious bedroom has a set of twin beds that can be converted into a king bed. All bedrooms have large en suite baths that have been remodeled with marble counters and walk-in showers.

Well equipped grocery stores are easily accessible to meet all of your food and drink needs, or for an extra fee groceries can be provided upon arrival. Private transportation from the Cancun airport can be arranged on request for an additional fee.

Maid service is provided every second day, as well as fresh bottled water, and our property manager is available to ensure that your trip to paradise is just that!. Our concierge service can arrange anything you might need. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: My wife and I stayed in this villa in 2012 and enjoyed it so much we bought it for our future retirement home . We live in Houston , Texas and honeymooned in cancun / playa many years ago and now own a little piece of paradise ! Once your there you will know exactly what we call paradise !

Why Villas del Mayab (Playacar, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico):
It just seems to be close to everything you could possibly need ! And it is . But please understand this is MEXICO and contrary to popular belief it's still a 3rd world country , if something breaks it's fixed when they want to , not when you want it ! I have no control over this and you need to understand and accept this ! It's very seldom but things do happen !

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This villa is in the most well known private community in the Rivera Maya region .. PLAYACAR . Yet as a guest I must remind you this is MEXICO and water ,power , internet , cable ect . Are lsubject to outages beyond my control . Storms wind and just plain old wear and tear can at times cause an outage , and that being said , again this is Mexico and often times repairs are treated as MAÑANA TIME . Which in reality means when we get to it ! I just wanted to include this as an advisory , certainly not to suggest it's even a possibility during your stay , just advice for a coastal zone !
