Villa la Chaya is a splendid three-story, three bedroom newly renovated French style beach retreat situated on a quiet block in the exclusive enclave of Playacar Fase I. This tropical oasis offers rare privacy as you step beyond the charming wooden gate set in a palm-fringed stone wall. La Chaya is just steps from the best beach in Playa del Carmen – one of the most beautiful in the world. A blend of modern and traditional sensibilities, the home was designed to capture the Caribbean breeze with French doors and windows that invite the outside in.
The third floor master seduces with stunning sea views from both the bed and master veranda. The second floor bedrooms boast gorgeous green views and the gallery opens onto a terrace high in the trees. Take a seat and watch the resident iguana climb to his sunny perch as parrots cackle and zoom overhead.
Cooking with the wide array of fresh, local ingredients is inspirational. The fully-equipped kitchen opens onto its own patio for al fresco dining and barbequing on the handmade ceramic tile grill.
Stay in touch with high speed WIFI, plug in your iPod to enjoy your tunes or enjoy a SKY TV, Netflix or a Bluray film on the new 50' screen.
Stroll or ride a house bike to town though the verdant archeological parks of Fase I. Playa del Carmen, long an international hub, is replete with world-class restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Playa is also a great jumping off point for exploring all the Yucatan has to offer. Whether you travel further afield or blissfully lounge on the beach, it’s all good. At the end of the day, at the end of the road, you’ll come home to your Mexican Shangri-La.

Beautiful home and perfectly located in Playa del Carmen
The home sits in a quiet and secure neighborhood a few moments walk from the best beach in Playa. The layout and the decor of the house is lovely, tasteful and calming. The balconies are a great feature, and in the evening when the waterfall and the lights come on, the pool and garden are a private oasis. The pool is in complete shade however all day long -- so if you have visions on laying out by the pool, this is not the house for you.
The staff is very helpful and the location cannot be beat.
Perfection in Playa
We just returned from a wonderful vacation in Playa del Carmen at Villa La Chaya. The villa is perfectly located - literally about a minute from the beautiful white sandy beach and a 15 minute walk (we always took the beach route) to Playa's 5th avenue.
The villa was spacious and impressively equipped - I am a keen cook and appreciated that the kitchen was furnished with good quality knives etc..
We were a family of 5 plus my son's girlfriend and there was plenty of space for everyone. The villa has a small pool which we appreciated in the evenings especially. The air conditioning was great (super important to us:)). The Cutler's were great to deal with and super helpful. I cannot recommend La Chaya too highly!
Stunning in every way
Great property manager. Every need was taken care of. Peaceful beautiful home, we felt safe and tucked away in the tropical lush landscape. Just around the corner was a beautiful beach. The home was well stocked and very private. The bikes were a great addition and we rode around playacar quite a bit, also into town to bring back broasted chicken....yummmy.
Location, location, location
Villa la Chaya lived up to all of our expectations! The home is decorated beautifully, its tranquil feel helps you get into vacation mode right away. Located in a beautiful gated neighborhood, with a less than a 5min walk to a great, non-crowded beach. If you want to head to Playa's popular 5th ave, you are only a 15 min walk or 4min cab ride away. We were able to prepare wonderful meals in the well equipped kitchen, and you can arrange to have meals prepared for you as well. Everything was so convenient. What a great location! Steve and Jane have done a great job making sure anything you need is right at your fingertips. Love this property, we can't wait to get back!
This retreat is an escape into luxury, beauty, comfort, creativity, joy and serenity. The service was nothing short of excellent. My only complaint is that we had to leave.
Beautiful, well maintained, sophisticated and decorated with attention to detail.
The house is two blocks away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. The neighbourhood is a gated community with a lot a beautiful homes. The house is very comfortable. The furniture and decor have been chosen with care giving a sense of comfort and beauty. The kitchen is very well equipped , better than what I have seen in rental homes in the past. This allowed us to cook delicious meals with ease. Claudia, the manager, is very professional, helpful and easy to reach in case you need help with something related to the property. The woman in charge of cleaning the house and changing linens and towels keeps everything sparkling clean. And last, but not least, the person who cooked for us prepared delicious breakfast and lunch. Our stay without such great food would not have been as pleasant.
This property is so beautiful and in such great condition that we are definitely considering going back. We visit the area once a year and Villa La Chaya was a great gem to discover.
Thank you Steve for creating such a beautiful place for travellers like us to enjoy.
So glad you enjoyed your stay at la Chaya and that you appreciate the details that make our home not just another beach rental.
