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 Playacar

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!

Great House in a Great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was close to everything and comfortably slept 8 of us. The onsite management team of Tara and Luis were excellent and helped us on many aspects of our Vacation. The best meals we had on our visit were cooked by them so be sure to take advantage of that.

Piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Mi Casa Amarillo is beautiful, and being able to walk through ancient ruins on the way to a perfect beach = paradise! The home has got everything, very well kept, spotless and in a lovely gated community just minutes from a lively town. Fantastic restaurants. The beach is spectacular. We cant wait to return!

Yucatan Lovely Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Extraordinary home near so many attractions, shopping and restaurants. Swimming pool on property and a larger one in the complex. Would suggest that you ask the owners about Tara and Luis' service to provide you with a very authentic Mexican dinner served by them in your home.

A pretty home in a good location

  • 4 of 5

Our group of four couples stayed at Mi Casa Amarilla for 2 weeks in February. Trish the owner was easy to work with and very responsive to our needs.

From the outside, the house is the prettiest one in the complex. The home was well equipped with everything we needed. Each couple had their own bedroom and bathroom which was ideal. Tara and Luis the Property Managers were great as described. The kitchen was stocked as ordered, and supper supplies awaiting when we arrived. We had three home mechanical issues while we were there, and Luis arrived within minutes to correct them. We mentioned to Tara one day that the grocery store was out of limes, and the next thing we knew she had returned with some for us. Wonderful people!! The common pool was lovely, and we spent a lot of time there and met very nice people. The pool area itself, covered cabana, loungers, washroom etc are due for a facelift, but were fine.

The location of this home works both FOR it and also AGAINST it. The access to 5th Avenue, the Ferry, car rental, the beach, was perfect. You couldn't ask for better. The house location in relation to the road traffic and backing on to to the Bird Sanctuary was challenging. We wanted to spend a lot of time as a group on the patio and there were times of day that the noise was unbearable. The traffic never sleeps and the birds were especially loud from 7:30-9:30am and again around 3:00-5:00pm, to the point where conversation was difficult. We could have been a little farther from convenience and enjoyed the quiet. This is the single reason for the 4 start rating!! We still had a great holiday,,,,

Car: not necessary

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.
