About the property

3 bedroom 3 ensuites, Completely Renovated 2012

Located in the gated community of Playacar Phase 2

A stunning vacation property in an unbeatable location, Casa de Aves is situated less than a 5 minute walk to the crystalline waters of the Caribbean Sea and charming shops, superb restaurants and quaint cafes which line Mexico’s most famous cobblestone street, 5th Avenue.

Within the secure, gated community of Playacar, this elegant 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home features a custom-designed kitchen replete with sleek granite counters, dark modern cabinetry and all the cookware, utensils and appliances needed to prepare succulent feasts for your family and friends. A tremendous semi-circular living area with its dramatic, domed ceiling and elongated windows is an architectural marvel, allowing the cheerful sun to flood the interior with natural light, accentuating the polished marble floors. In addition, there is a laundry room with washer/dryer, beach chairs and umbrella, as well as two bikes. A bedroom with 2 twins and an en-suite are off the TV room which provides a flat screen, satellite television and DVD player. A wide terrace which spans the width of the house and extends the living space to the outdoors, invites guests to take advantage of Playa’s enviable climate. Enjoy a flavorful meal prepared on the propane grill or lounge with a glass of wine in the sublime seating area which backs onto a verdant garden.

A winding stairwell ascends to an open loft space with a futon, which can accommodate 2 guests, as well as a work station with a desk and printer. Both bedrooms on this upper level are furnished with plush king beds and each has an en-suite displaying gorgeous tile work with intricate stone inset. From the vantage point of the expansive terrace off the master, guests can delight in watching their colorful neighbors soar by. Bordered by the Xaman-ha bird sanctuary, the green space surrounding Casa de Aves frequently experiences visits from a variety of winged creatures such as toucans, yellow-backed orioles and parrots!!

A private tennis court and communal area boasting a substantial pool, plenty of reclining lounge chairs and a palapa with seating and wifi are only a few steps from your door. On 5th Avenue is a limitless array of enticing restaurants serving traditional Mexican and international fare, fresh juice bars, boutique and brand name stores, artisan shops, a play park, nightly Mayan performances, galleries and pubs showcasing riveting musicians from around the world.

An excellent Villa in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

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.

So much better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

If you are planning a trip to Playa Del Carmen this Villa is the place for you and your family. It is completely stocked with everything you will need for a great vacation. Don't worry about bringing beach towels, chairs, coolers, beach bags or toys for the kids because Jeff has all of that there for you. If you decide to cook at home you will find a kitchen with everything you need there too. We loved using the outside grill and sitting on the patio. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very spacious. The beds are super comfortable. There is plenty of closet space if you want to completely unpack and not live out of your suitcase. The Villa is just steps away for the pool as well. Spend some time there and you will see the Iguana's the stay close by. Its a nice area with plenty of space.

The location is perfect for the beach, walking to shopping and restaurants on 5th St. We walked to 5th St every evening for dinner. There are so many places to eat. The coolest part about walking to the beach is going through the ruins and seeing animals that live there. We actually saw a monkey which is a rare occurrence! The beach is beautiful! You really don't need to rent a car because everything is so close but if you want to go to Tulum or Akumel I would recommend using Collectivo.

Tara, the property manager is awesome. She arranged roundtrip airport transportation for our group She met us when we arrived at the Villa and dropped by several times during the week to check on us and make sure we had everything we needed. She is there to make sure your vacation is stress free and as relaxing as possible. She and Luis will also stock groceries before your arrival which is pretty cool!

Thank you Jeff and Tara for making our trip to Mexico a trip of a lifetime. We will be coming back!

Beautiful home; great location

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is wonderful - fully stocked with all home, beach and pool needs. Close to all amenities - 10 minute walk to downtown; 10 minute walk to the beach. Backs on to bird aviary (we saw Tucans flying overhead). Property managers (Tara and Luis) are great and can provide whatever supports are needed.

Relaxing Week in Playacar

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful week at this fabulous Villa, my third time there. What a wonderful location! A beautiful, quiet haven just a minute outside the gate into Playa Del Carmen, a five minute walk to the beach, and minutes to many wonderful restaurants. We had arranged to have Tara stock some groceries and liquor for us so we didn't have to worry about that upon our arrival and that was so convenient. Tara is always reachable if we needed anything and checked in several times throughout the week. The accommodations are wonderful and everyone had their own space. Really enjoyed hanging out at the pool. It was always quiet and relaxing and we enjoyed visiting with some of the other vacationers. Fun to see the iguanas and agoutis on the property. Looking forward to our return to this same Villa in 2018.

Very nice house with a location that can't be beat. From 5th Ave to the beach...just a 5 min walk.A very easy drive to Tulum and beaches in between.

Our family had several people coming and going through out our stay and all were happy with how convenient it was to walk anywhere. Property managers were on top of our needs and ready to make our stay as comfortable as possible...and they did. The house owner was easy to get in touch with and we were very comfortable dealing with him. We could not have ask for a nicer vacation stop...thank you all very much

Fab Holiday in the Sun!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my family stayed at Casa de Aves in December for two weeks and we had a great time! The villa's location is fantastic, literally just a 5 minute walk into Playa Del Carmen and to the beach. The villa itself is all you need and the pool area is only a few steps away. Tara and Luis were so helpful during our stay. If ever there was a problem or we needed more information they got back to us immediately (quite handy to have some local knowledge when you are self catering in Mexico!). We have been to Mexico on quite a few occasions, both all inclusive and self catering and we would definitely recommend this villa if you are thinking of doing the latter kind of holiday. Thank you to Jeff and his family for letting us stay at your home and thanks for the easy communication!
