About the Property

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Casa Crema is a one bedroom home within an exclusive 100 acre estate, just off the Cancun-Tulum road, so is convenient for trips to Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Cancun. The master suite contains a king bed and large ensuite bathroom with tub and shower facing the bamboo garden. Our full kitchen features Mexican tile floors and counters, modern appliances and all cookware. A comfortable futon couch in the glass enclosed sleeping porch accommodates one adult or two children with separate full bathroom with shower. There is also air conditioning, wireless internet and Satellite TV. Our private road meanders one mile through our lovely forest to the beach. We can provide kayaks and stand-up paddleboards upon request. Maid service and a chef to prepare meals are available for a reasonable fee.

Additional information about rental rates


  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • Tax Rate 19%


We refund 90% of the rental if cancellations are made at least 30 days prior to arrival.

We prefer direct bank transfers, which are quite easy through VRBO/Homeaway. If you use a credit card, they assess a 2.9% credit card fee and we'll deduct it from the refund of the security deposit.

While most guests at Casa Crema rent a car, we are pleased to arrange airport pick-up - a driver will be there with your name on a a sign - and you can reimburse my partner later for this expense along with any excursions, massages and shopping. If you come by taxi, he can later arrange for you to rent a car in Playa del Carmen after you settle in at the house.

So your first day is more restful, we can pre-shop for you and stock the fridge with food and alcoholic beverages at cost +25% - just bring cash to reimburse him, or you can transfer funds via PayPal. Dollars are preferred so no need to get pesos. If you choose to exchange money, the best rate is with my partner or at the bank ATM in Playa del Carmen. Do not exchange money at the airport as it will cost you over 20% in the bid/ask spread. Pesos are generally needed only two places: to refuel the car as many gas stations do not have a phone line to process on-line payments, and for admission at the Mayan pyramids like Coba, Tulum and Chi-chen Itza.

While VISA and Mastercard are accepted everywhere in Mexico while AMEX is unpopular due to higher fees to the merchant.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: Fell in love with the area and bought the property with an eco-resort in mind.

Why the Owner Chose Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
Lovely natural forest, wildlife, warm water and fair winds!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Property has easy access off the road for trips to town, but you can just enjoy the forest and the beach and never go to town! We have 2 miles of hiking trails within our ranch.
