About Trish Owens & Wyatt Owens

We are both born and raised 'Virginians' but have always had a love for travel to wonderful sunny locations! We currently live in Charlottesville, VA, also known as the famous home for the 3rd President of the United States, Thomas Jefferson.

Trish Owens & Wyatt Owens purchased this villa in 2011

Why Trish Owens & Wyatt Owens chose Villas del Mayab

After traveling to many areas throughout all of Mexico in the past 15 years, the beautiful white sandy beaches and crystal blue water of Playa del Carmen called our name. We love the location of 'Playa' as it offers 2 easy airports ~ Cancun International is 40 minutes North of Playa and Cozumel International is a 30 minute ferry ride to Playa. We researched locations all over the Mexican Riviera, before settling on Mi Casa Amarilla. We love this location in this gated Playacar community as we are a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 5 minute walk to all shopping and restaurants on 5th Avenue. There is really no need for a car when you are at Mi Casa Amarilla! Additionally, this home offers usage of the par 72 Playacar/Hard Rock Golf Course and we are located near hole #3 ~ This home is spacious beautifully appointed and comfortable for a small or large group.

What makes this villa unique

This home really gives you a lovely Mexican feel, with the red tile roofs, tile flooring and granite throughout. We have added all the comforts of our US home to this Mexican home and complemented with original Mexican artwork. We love relaxing with an ice cold drink in our private plunge pool in the evenings!

A wonderful home with plenty of space and many amenities!

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property was excellent. We felt totally safe and the location of the home allowed us all to have many memorable, happy moments. We are a family of 7---I am the grandma with my two daughters and my four grand children, 5 1/2, 9, 10 and 12. We went to the beach twice and to the ruins at Tulum and we spent a day at xcaret! We ate many meals in the town of Playa del Carmen, easily walking distance from the house. This is a real treasure and we will never forget our happy time!!

Beautiful gated house in Playacar

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property to anyone going to Mexico that has a large family. Three bedrooms and baths are up with balconies and one master bedroom down. It is exactly like it was described in the listing. Very clean and we had Tara stock it with food and drinks before our arrival , which is the way to go then you do not have to worry about going to the store. It is very close to town and an all inclusive resort that they have admission to. It is just a block or two away from the beach. If you do not want the beach, there is a huge pool a few houses away for use. The manager of the property, Tara, was wonderful and only a text or phone call away if we needed anything. We decided on a personal chef for our first night in, who was recommended by Tara the manager. What a meal that was consisting of fresh fish, fresh avocado dip and etc. We enjoyed two restaurants while there, one being a place where you could pick out your own lobster and another one I think was called The Plank, for steaks. They were both outstanding. Thanks for a wonderful and safe time.

Just perfect is an understatement!!

  • 5 of 5

Great expectations can be bad, but if it's Casa Amarilla it exceeds expectations!! The house is superb with a wonderful layout. our family vacation with granddaughters, daughter, son in law and us oldsters was perfect. The small private pool being a part of the house was a big hit with the children, the larger pool a short walk from the house was great for laps and meeting people. The beach was a short walk and the best in Playa Carmen. The ferry to Cozumel was an easy walk and wonderful dining also close.

This property with 4 large BR and 4.5 bathrooms is amazing and perfect for families. I loved it!!

Mi Casa Amarillo is clean, spacious and in a great location. We arrived to a nicely stocked refrigerator, Tara and Luis filled it up with our requests and stopped by to make sure we were satisfied and to answer any questions - soooooo helpful! The house is 5 minute (max) walk to a speculator beach and to endless shopping, restaurants. My only negative is we should have stayed much longer!

Welcome to Playa del Carmen and and welcome to Mi Casa Amarilla! 'My Yellow House' is located in the famous gated Playacar Golf & Spa community & within a 5 minute walk to the white sandy beaches and within a 5 minute walk to the famous '5th Avenue', where an abundance of shopping and restaurants are located. Situated in the elite, little neighborhood within Playacar, called Villas del Mayab, this home is also near the #3 fairway/hole for the famous par 72, Playacar/Hard Rock golf course, designed by Robert Von Hagge and stretching 7,144 yards. Surrounded by a diversity of lakes and exuberant vegetation, this course is considered to be the most challenging in this region. Another benefit to Mi Casa Amarilla is that our guests have use of The Reef Playacar Resort - 'Reef Club'. This offers you another choice for private beach, pools and common areas. Located just 3/4 mile beyond Mi Casa Amarilla, an easy stroll down the sidewalk, The Reef Club also offers all inclusive daily packages for drinks and food, if desired. There's really no need for a car at this casa, as everything you need is within a 5 minute walk! Whether is golfing, beaching or exploring Mayan ruins or cenotes, this region of Mexico offers something for everyone of all ages.
