The outdoor area is very private, with a Spanish design wall and mature landscaping everywhere, leading to an intimate green space for hammocks in the shade on the other side of the waterfall.

Each bedroom is outfitted with high quality mattresses, linens and towels and its own private bathroom. Three bedrooms have direct access to the L shaped terrace and the front bedroom has its own balcony.

The office has a curved sofa that extends to make a circular bed and its own flat screen TV. A full bathroom is just off the foyer.

On the roof top terrace you will be able to catch sunrise or sunset. A second bar area with built-in seating, dining area and a half bath make this a great place for entertainment.

This is a special property - perfect for adult gatherings of friends or family. Children under the age of 10 will be considered on an individual basis.

                                                                    Such a beautiful villa!

                                                                    Brent I.

                                                                    This villa was super beautiful and very spacious for the group of us nine friends. Claudia Hocher helped answer and questions i asked leading up to getting there. Dan the property manager greeted us right off the ferry from Cozumel and got a ride transportation to the villa. He then did a great job running through the things about the house, and was just a phone call away if we needed anything. We had such a great stay. The outside pool and bar were amazing and where we spent a lot of time. The rooftop was also a very cool spot. The kitchen had everything we need to cook meals when we stayed in. The villa was pretty secluded and felt safe all the time. The walk to the beach and to town were not bad at all. The maids came about every other day and stayed out of our way but yet helped keep the house super clean. The pool and Gardner day a great job as well. I would recommend this house to anyone especially with a larger group as people.

                                                                    Wonderful house in every way!

                                                                    JEAN C.

                                                                    We absolutely loved our time at this wonderful vacation home. There was plenty of room for our three families and everyone had their own space, plus lots of common areas to hang out. The pool area is incredible - everyone LOVED the pool and there are sunny spots to get a tan and also lots of shade for those are sensitive to the sun. Dan and Claudia are great hosts and even helped us arrange a caterer for one night - INCREDIBLE meal - we did the Mexican Fiesta - highly recommend! They also helped some in our group arrange for airport transfers and were just wonderful. We've been to Mexico many times and this is by far our favorite rental house...we'll be back!

They organized round trip transportation that was timely friendly and efficient as well. I will definitely use their services again in the future.

                                                                    Thanks for the great experience.

                                                                    Dina S.atlanta, ga

                                                                    This is a huge property! Plenty of room for our 5 couples to spread out. Very well maintained. Easy walk to beach. Easy walk to town, however, if you don’t want to walk it’s super easy to grab a taxi.

                                                                    Booking was easy, everyone was wonderful to deal with and maid service 3x a week was great!

                                                                    Dream Hideaway

                                                                    Jen & Steve B.

                                                                    We stayed at La Vida Loco for week with our extended family and absolutely loved it. The house itself was very spacious. We had three families there and had plenty of room for everyone with extra space to lounge about. The house was very clean and had everything we needed available for cooking, eating, drinking. There was ample bottled water for drinking as well as filtered water for cooking and washing up. The pool was clean and an excellent spot to cool down. The house was situated in a gated community so there was never any safety concerns at the property. It is about a 10-15 minute walk (or a short cab ride) to a big grocery store. It is even closer to the beach, bars, restaurants, and shops.

                                                                    Before we arrived in Mexico, Claudia answered all of our questions very promptly. She also helped us set up tours and transport to and from the airport. She also connected us with a wonderful chef that came to the house the night we arrived and prepared a Mexican feast. It was phenomenal!

                                                                    Once we got settled in the onsite manager, Dan, took over right where Claudia left off. He helped us navigate around (even going so far as to give my sister and I a ride to the grocery store the first time). He helped us arrange additional tours, and checked in with us daily to ensure everything was running smoothly.

                                                                    The WiFi left a little to be desired. Basic Internet was available, but streaming was not possible. My family has t-mobile with N. America plan so we had good service with that, but the others were with sprint and coverage was slim. We had better things to do than stream video though!

                                                                    Overall, it was an excellent stay, I would not hesitate to return!

                                                                    Steve B

                                                                    Look No Further, You Found Your Next Vacation Rental!

                                                                    Alexander H.Buffalo, NY

                                                                    The pictures do this house no justice (though I would recommend watching the youtube video for a good idea of the paradise you'll be entering). Words cannot describe the sense of satisfaction I had after renting this home and seeing the reaction of my 11 friends when they entered. The proximity to the beach is great, as Playacar has a beautiful little section close enough to downtown Playa del Carmen that you can hop over to the bars and beach clubs if you desire, or stay in your remote location.

                                                                    We definitely recommend taking the Ferry to Cozumel for at least a day or two. Renting cars is suggested, as we had a couple roadtrips to nearby Tulum and Xel-Ha, as well as one long day where we saw Chichen Itza, Ik Kil Cenote, Vallodolid, and more of the Yucatan. Everything about this house was great - Dan was friendly and happy to answer questions about the grill and safe. Maids came by 3 times over the course of the week, but we never felt intruded upon once. It was a perfect mix of privacy and quick response that you want in a vacation home. Beds may not even be fully populated, as some members spent nights on the roof or in the hammock just to stargaze.

                                                                    There is one disclaimer I would leave, is that we had one noise complaint on our 5th night. It was deserved, but the exact adjacent neighbors do have dogs as well that bark, so just be prepared for that. Other than that, this is definitely recommended in every way possible!
