About the Property

You’ll love our wonderful 3 bedroom, 3 bath, penthouse condo! It offers a view

As you enter the condo, you will feel as if you have been transported to a magical, tropical treehouse. Your first view as you enter the condo looks out onto the mesmerizing swaying green of the palms accented by the bright blue hues of the Caribbean just in the distance. If you need an even better view, you may climb one short flight of stairs to the rooftop for expansive, panoramic views of Playa and the Caribbean and even the island of Cozumel 9 miles distant. Of course it’s only a few moments’ walk from Casa Chiripa to the Caribbean, and just a few minutes’ walk to the very best restaurants and shops that Playa has to offer along 5th Avenue and its many side streets. We update our guest book every year so that you can see our recommendations for the best places to dine and shop. We also include tips and ideas for day trips, finding taxis and tipping etiquette (we suggest you pack plenty of US $1 bills). We also provide extensively detailed local maps that are a fun way to map out your next day’s shopping and dining excursions.
The condo’s floor plan is open and spacious, with floor to ceiling retractable sliding glass doors allowing you to enjoy the luxurious indoors and the tropical splendor and breezes in one single element. The architecturally unique design of Casa Chiripa and the lush gardens with running waterfalls combine to ensure that you will feel you are in a true and special tropical paradise. Each of the three bedrooms is individually decorated and the three accompanying en-suite bathrooms are lined with handcrafted tiles and glass block.
Casa Chiripa is located in the exclusive Natz Ti Ha condominium complex, which has gained a reputation for its perfect location, unique grounds, lush gardens and interior waterfalls. Located at the quiet, north end of Playa Del Carmen, Natz Ti Ha (which means “running water” in Mayan) is an intimate enclave consisting of only 36 units, all uniquely designed and independently owned. The units were meant to be year round homes, and many residents (including as noted above, our property manager) do reside here full time.
One of the things that we love best about Natz Ti Ha is the sound of the bubbling water that emanates from the cascading water fountains. The sound of the running water, juxtaposed with the sounds of the birds and the sight of an occasional sun-bathing iguana, provides a zen-like feel that we find calms the body and soul.
The 19 x 4 meter community pool, nestled among a maze of interior pathways lined with lush vegetation, is always sparkling clean. Chase lounges are provided by the pool for sunbathing – and no – you do not need to get up early to “reserve” one as you do at so many of the large all-inclusive resorts. And of course we provide thick terry beach towels for your use. The unit also includes six backpack style folding beach chairs as well as an umbrella for the beach.
The entrance to the complex that faces the beach has two outdoor beach showers just inside the entrance gate. Have fun rinsing off the salt and the sand, then swing by the pool for a dip before heading upstairs to your glorious condo.
The condominium complex is fully gated and walled, and features a professional 24-hour security staff. You’ll quickly feel comfortable greeting the friendly and attentive landscaping and maintenance staff, many of whom are long time employees.
Come share the magic of Casa Chiripa. Your vacation in the Mayan Riviera just got better!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Our names are Bob and Leigh Eastty and we regretfully spend most of our time calling the state of New Jersey our home. We have been traveling to Mexico for over 15 years, and in the summer of 2013, through a series of delightful but unexpected events (a chiripa!), we ended up purchasing H301 in Natz Ti Ha.

Why Zazil-ha, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico:
We first stayed at Natz Ti Ha around 2006, and since that time we have never stayed in any other condominium complex in Playa Del Carmen. We just love the intimacy of the small enclave. The lush tropical gardens, which are so well designed and maintained, took our breath away. When we stayed in Natz Ti Ha, we felt as if Mexico was embracing us, and we hope you feel the same staying in Casa Chiripa. Our goal is to make you feel as embraced by Mexico as we have!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our favorite days start with fresh cantaloupe and coffee on the terrace, involve a walk down to Coco beach, a good 'beach read,' perhaps a walk up to lunch at Los Aguachiles or one of the other 'funky' restaurants in town, evening drinks and guacamole out on the patio, a walk out to a beautiful restaurant for dinner, a stroll back home under the twinkling lights of 5th avenue and end with a nightcap on the terrace. That's a good day in the life!
