Comfortable studio

  • 5 of 5

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!!!!!

comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented Steve and Sue's Chac-Ha studio for 21/2 weeks and enjoyed our time doing some sightseeing, beach relaxing, dinners at Playa and lounging around the condo pool. We arrived late at night and the instructions to open the apt. and get settled were easy to follow without a hitch. The next day Steve guided us to the Reef Playacar across the street to introduce us to the staff and show us the how to's for using the hotel and amenities. We spent much of our time at the beach using the hotel's lounges and umbrellas. It takes 25 minutes to walk to Playa and enjoy the food choices or shop at Walmart for food to prepare. Steve and Sue were great hosts. If we had any problems with the condo they were there to help.

Thanks to SAteve and Sue for a great few weeks in the Playa area.

Precious memories at this little paradise of Chac-Ha!

  • 4 of 5

Back from a wonderful 15 days vacation at this so relaxing and quiet Complex. It was my sixth time in Mexico but first time renting and really liked the experience. The Studio was just big enough for me (I recommend it one person or 2 friends), clean, safe, just 10 steps from the beautiful pool and garden and so well located (just 15 minutes walks from Playa del Carmen and close to the ocean passing by the Reef Hotel). It didn't take me long before I made this place my little home away from home!

I so enjoyed swimming in the pool after a jog in the morning, then making a big breakfast that I ate on the patio. I also appreciated the vegetation around it, very peaceful, (often there was nobody or just a few other visitors). And after a day at the ocean or snorkelling, I really liked going back "home" at the pool with my glass of rosée wine, relaxing, watching the sun going down and having a last swim before my meal. Even cooking and eating in the studio with some music was fun! And some evenings, I went out to good restaurants and walked a bit on the quinta. I also met Manuel and Severo that work at the Complex, very nice people, and of course, Claudine the manager of the Studio, who really cared I had a great stay and gave me alot of infos. Renting a place gave me a great feeling of freedom just as if I was living in Playacar for a bit! I was smiling all the time so happy and grateful of what I was living! I'm missing it already...

Thank you Steve and Susan for letting visitors enjoying this little paradise! I really hope to be back at Chac-Ha (to your Studio or Condo) in 2014.

Perfect Studio

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to stay! Steve and Susan are exceptional hosts and make sure all your needs are met. The 1 bedroom condo has everything we needed for our stay, and I cooked every night at the condo. Steve is adding an oven/stove--just for us for next year, I'm sure! :)

The pool area is beautiful. The Reef Club beach is huge and wonderful to watch the activities, walk, or read. My husband and I enjoyed our walks into town, going to Walmart and Sam's Club, running around the golf course, and walks to the Playacar Marketplace in the evenings after dinner.

I highly recommend staying here. My husband and I already booked for next year!

Our wonerful stay at Chac-Ha 701S

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been coming to Playa del Carmen for 10 years and have always stayed at an all inclusive. This year we decided to split our time between the all inclusive and renting an apartment/condo. Our first week we rented the studio apartment from Steve and Susan. It was a wonderful experience from the very beginning. Our accomodations were perfect for the 2 of us. The kitchen was equiped with everything we needed as were the bathroom and bedroom. We experienced grocery shopping at WalMart and Mega which resulted in only eating out 2 evenings.

Everyday was perfect due to basically having our own private pool! The pool is large and very well maintained. We had he pool to ourselves except for 2 afternoons. Steve and Susan came out to visit and swim everyday and those were cherished times. Steve and Susan made our stay more than we could have ever dreamed of. They are the most accomodating hosts and so very gracious. We definetly will be returning next year and can't wait to see and spend time with our new friends, Steve and Susan.
