Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 6 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Nestled in the jungle between Mayan Ruins and the Caribbean Sea in Playa del Carmen Mexico lies Casa Kopfmann.

Playa del Carmen is an international community located along the Mayan Riviera. Casa Kopfmann is conveniently located a block from the beach in a private secure gated community, Playacar.

The house has been beautifully designed with four bedrooms, all with private baths. The first floor of the house is perfect for entertaining/ vacationing. Persian doors along the entire front of the house open onto the pool deck and patio. A fully equipped kitchen that is open to the dining room and living room make this level a perfect place to enjoy time with family or friends. Nestled privately in the back of the house, with doors that open to the jungle, lies the media room.

Further Details: The second floor has 3 bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have private balconies and bathrooms.

The master suite is located on the third floor. Balcony doors open to the spectacular views of the ocean. The sitting room with adjoining balcony is privately hidden by the treetops of the jungle.

The rooftop is one of the most distinguishing features of the house. With views of Cozumel, a jacuzzi, hammocks and lounge chairs you can spend days sunbathing and nights in the jacuzzi under the stars.

David and Lynn have enjoyed vacationing in Playa del Carmen since the mid 80's. Because they enjoy this area of Mexico so much they decided to build their vacation home there in 2001. They enjoy spending time in Playa throughout all seasons of the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are so glad we got to experience Playa del Carmen and Casa Kopfmann! What a delightful time. Your home is lovely and was perfect for our girls week. I have to say the location of your casa is awesome, so close to the best part of the beach and all the Playa activity. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. Love the roof top view, the space, art (especially David's photos) and all the amenities of your home. We appreciate how helpful Esperanza, Alex and Luci are. It made our stay so enjoyable to have their advice and expertise on the area. Alex's tour of Alux's cave was wonderful! As always vacations go by way to quickly and the reality of 30 degree weather is hard to accept! I hope to return to Casa Kopfmann in the future!!

Great house but SKIP the home-cooked meal

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house for family or friends. Everyone has plenty of privacy + great common areas to hang out. Location makes it easy to walk to town or over to the beach.

Here's the WARNING: Do not pay for a home-cooked meal! Our entire group (aged 20 to 60-something) got food poisoning from what was supposed to be a special treat. And to make things even more comical, the water broke the next day, so none of the toilets would flush.

Maybe it was an isolated event...but DO YOU WANT TO RISK IT? Do you want to cancel your trip to Chichen Itza so that everyone can lie in bed all day, sipping on Gatorade and then running intermittently to the non-working toilets? (Fortunately there are 6 toilets so you may not have to share!) Do you want to have Esperanza argue with you that none of it was her fault?

Pro tip: stick to the Playa del Carmen restaurants, and buy some snacks for the house.

Owner's Response: It is so unfortunate that your group experienced these issues. Esperanza has been cooking for our guests for the past 10 years, as well as guests in many other vacation homes in Playacar and we have never had a complaint or issue such as this. Many of our guests return year after year and request Esperanza to do special meals for them and their groups. I appreciate your feedback and hope that this experience doesn't deter you from coming back to Playa and Mexico. Lynn and Dave

Steps to the beach -- perfect

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a glorious week at Casa Kopfmann for Spring Break. The house is beautiful and the location prime. We enjoyed the short jaunt to the beach and stroll into town. Playacar Phase I is the nicest residential area in Playa and feels very safe. We had more than enough room for our group of seven. We loved the artwork. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked and the beds very comfortable. The linens were divine and everything was very clean. But the rooftop deck with caribbean view and the lovely hot tub was our favorite!

The staff was very supportive but unobtrusive. Esperanza, Alex, Lucy, Erick & Yus thank you for taking such good care of us and being so warm, friendly and patient with us!

Christmas on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We had the true pleasure of spending Christmas week 2013 at Casa Kopfmann. I did a lot of research upfront comparing various properties and hotel options before picking this property – and now after having been there and seeing the wide variety of options, remain extremely pleased with our choice. Everything we had read about the property in its description and reviews was spot-on. Casa Kopfmann is a large, spacious, tastefully decorated four-story single-family home located in a quiet, well-established and guarded subdivision. It is ideally situated for families - only a couple short blocks from the beach, and within easy walking distance to the main plaza in town, the ferry terminal to Cozumel, and the public bus terminal that provides transportation to/from the Cancun International Airport. Our party of seven consisted of two adults in their 50s and five adults in their 20s. The layout of the house, with its four separate bedrooms each with their own bathroom, worked out great for us. There was more than enough room for us all to spread out into our own spaces when we wanted that. For us, the selling point was the Jacuzzi on the roof (and proximity to the beach). We spent many evenings up there enjoying the hot tub under the stars listening to the jungle sounds around us. We also captured several awesome sunrises from there. The owner employs a local property manager who is very knowledgeable and available to provide groceries, arrange transportation, cater meals, and/or simply provide advice on things to do among other services. We had only some very minor maintenance issues come up during our stay, and the property manager addressed each of them very promptly – generally within an hour or two of being notified. The owner was very personable and professional. She answered all of my emails promptly, and verified that I had received various information she sent to me by mail. She provided us with a very detailed information sheet on the house, the local area, and recommendations for things to do once we had finalized the rental agreement. She put us in direct contact with the property manager so that we could work out “first day” meeting arrangements at the house. The owner also promptly refunded our security deposit upon completion of our stay. It was truly a fantastic vacation and memorable Christmas for us. I can't wait to go back!

Everything we needed and then some

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us stayed at Casa Kopfmann--and it had every amenity we could ask for. Each couple and our children had their own space if we wanted time to ourselves, but the house also offered a great place for all of us to be together. We took advantage of the beautiful views from the roof every morning and afternoon. The house is located a very short walk to a beautiful beach and to downtown Playa del Carmen. We felt very safe walking to both.

Esperanza checked on us every day to make sure we had everything we needed. She also helped us plan a few sight-seeing excursions.

We all left feeling very relaxed and already contemplating our return visit!
