About The Owner

We are an American couple, originally from Michigan and Ohio, but currently live in Maryland.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2017

Why The Owner chose Villas del Mayab

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.

What makes this villa unique

This home has recently been remodeled and is decorated in the contemporary fashion. This home offers many modern conveniences as well.

Beautiful Villa! Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Elena is in a great location, walking distance to the beach, the famous 5th avenue shopping in Playa De Carmen, and numerous restaurants to enjoy. Public transportation was easy and short walk from the villa. The villa itself was beautiful, the pool and tennis courts are right outside of the villa. The villa had all the amenities of home and then some. Tara and Luis, the property managers, welcomed us like we were old friends! They were awesome! We visited Mayan ruins in Tulum, which was very beautiful and interesting to learn about Mayan people. We walked to a small public beach, where the locals go, and had a delicious lunch and swam in the ocean and enjoyed the beautiful beach. We also visited a bird sanctuary, which was a very short walk from the Villa. I have to say this vacation was one of our best! We've been to a few resorts there, they were nice, but staying at Casa Elena was a new adventure! Definitely will go back!!!
