Great big house in a secure area. Close to the beach and pool. It has everything you need: beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and toys. Owners really make sure that the house is fully equipped. The songs of the birds did not bother us at all.
Great location in Playa del Carmen
The location was as good as it gets in Playa del Carmen. It was a short walk to the beach and to the start of 5th avenue. 5 minutes to either. The condo has everything you could possibly need including towels, beach chairs, coolers, insulated to-go cups, etc. It easily accommodated our group of 7 people (3 adults, 4 kids). It has nice a nice seating area at the back with a bbq and is great for entertaining, having drinks, etc.
The property managers Tara and Luis were super helpful and super friendly. They had a cold 6 pack of beer and chips and salsa available for us on arrival and also arranged transportation to Xcaret for our group. A nice touch! They responded to every email question quickly and promptly.
The pool was secluded and quiet in the afternoons and was a nice place to relax after a day at the beach or shopping.
The only drawbacks were minor. The bird sanctuary is loud in the morning and in evening (not too bad once you get used to it though, kind of amusing) and there is no toilet paper allowed in the toilets (buy doggie bags) and it was a long walk to the garbage bin.
The loop around Playacar Phase 2 was 3.5 miles long and it was great for early morning jogs and long walks if you get tired of exploring 5th avenue too.
We would definitely stay here again.
My family really enjoyed our stay at Jeff's villa. The house is just as nice in person as the pics show. Located close to town and the beach. Fully stocked with the essential necessaries. Plenty of beach towels, chairs. coolers and even some toys for the kiddos. Only a couple of things to know- villa does not have a dishwasher or garbage disposal. Not a deal breaker by any means, just a personal preference. I would rather clean a toilet then hand wash anything! The villa is located directly next to a bird sanctuary, so if you like to sleep in, bring ear plugs. The community pool was nice and clean but the palapa area needs some love. Tara the property manager was amazing! She arranged round trip transportation from cancun, which is about a 40 min drive to the villa. She also went shopping ahead of time for some essential groceries and booze. There are some little stores like 711 near by for a quick run, but you can take a cab to Walmart which is less then a 10 min drive. Never an issue getting a cab anywhere. I had a few small issues/questions when we first arrived, but every time I called Tara, she always answered right away and took care of anything we needed! Her husband even removed a gecko that had found its way into my son's room so the he could sleep. Book excursions online like Xcaret or dolphin discovery. We got ripped off from one of the vendors on the wharf. Took the ferry over to Cozumel which took about 35-40 min. You can get tickets on the Wharf, which is about a 10 min walk down the beach.
Book this villa for a relaxing stay in Playa, you won't be disappointed!
Hi Nicole - thanks very much for your positive feedback. I am very happy to hear that your visit to PDC was a good one (other than your vendor experience) and that our Villa and property manager (Tara) provided you with everything you needed.
The house is beautiful.
The house is in a great location right at the entrance to 10th Avenue which leads you right into 5th Avenue. The owner has everything you could possibly need and more inside the house. Tara was great with everything we asked of her, she went above and beyond to make sure our stay was the best. Our driver Alberto that Tara set us up with for a day of excursions was awesome. My friends and I would like to thank everyone that made our vacation awesome.
Hi Robert. Thanks very much for your kind response. We are very glad you enjoyed our Villa and Tara/Luis' excellent care while you enjoying your vacation down in Playa del Carmen. Best regards. Jeff
Back again for a great stay
We have rented this house once or twice a year for the past several years and have never been disappointed...and this was the case again for our trip there in March/April.
The house is very well maintained (e.g. the patio had recently been re-tiled and improved) and is always well appointed with kitchen wares, linens, towels, beach chairs, etc.
This is our favourite place to vacation because of the location - an easy walk to the beach as well as shops, restaurants, bars and the rest of what Playa del Carmen has to offer while still very quiet and safe in the gated Playacar Ph 2 community.
An excellent Villa in an excellent location
We can’t say enough about our vacation. From stem to stern it was seamless. Between Jeff and Tara our every need was looked after and questions answered. The Villa was not oversold. Everything was as promised. The restaurant book in the Villa was bang on in terms of where to eat and what to eat (we added Mr Dog to the list). We highly recommend spending a week as we will be again! Thanks Jeff and Tara.
Thanks Kirk. We look forward to your next visit. Take care.
