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!

About Bob and Leigh Eastty

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.

Bob and Leigh Eastty purchased this condo in 2013

Why Bob and Leigh Eastty chose Playa del Carmen

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!

What makes this condo unique

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!

Terrific warm weather condo and location

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us stayed for almost two weeks. The condo's three bedrooms and baths really met our needs. Sitting on the deck looking out on the sea was peaceful and beautiful. All of the nearby restaurants and shops were a real plus. We would return "in a flash."

Beautiful Condo, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I loved the layout of this condo and that each bedroom has its own bath. You could not ask for any better when it comes to space. It's roomy and decorated beautifully making you feel very at home. The owners did an excellent job of providing everything one could need during their stay. The location is great. Plenty of places to dine and shop without even needing to get in a car. Absolutely loved the place!

**Now with that being said, there are a couple of things that I think one should know not to deter but to be aware of ahead of time. The air conditioning does not function to the capacity that we are used to at home. Owners have provided additional fans for each room for that reason.

Lastly, on weekend evenings, music till about 1:00 a.m. from down the beach is a bit loud. Otherwise, great, great place!

Cozy, Convenient, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed three days in the middle of June and couldn't be more pleased. We first stayed at Natz Ti Ha in 2006 and by all appearances the property owners have done a terrific job of maintaining the units and the grounds. Everything was clean and in working order. As before, the on-site staff and security personnel were courteous, professional and helpful when we needed them.

The location itself is on the quiet end of 5th Avenue, which is not to say it doesn't have its own character and amenities -it's just a different atmosphere than the other end. A less-crowded section of beach with powdery sand and quality restaurants are all within a few minutes walking distance.

The owners were easy to work with, provided helpful information leading up to our stay and responded to my questions along the way. I would recommend this location to anyone including those with small children (ours loved it then and now).

Absolutely wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just a spectacular family vacation! Beautifully appointed condo with more than enough room for our family of 5 - Could easily fit 6-8

Condo is truly beautiful, it looks just like the pictures. Very close to the beach an easy walk even with a 3 year old.

Landlords were fabulous to deat with, Truly one of the nicest experiences I've had through any travel website.

We had a few minor issues but the on-site staff dealt with everything quickly

Playa Del Carmen is beautiful. An easy walking town with tons of restaurants and shopping.

The only minor issue was that we traveled Easter week which apparently is a big party week in Playa del Carmen. We were able to avoid most of the "revelry" and had a wonderful family vacation.

Highly recommended!!!

Wow what a location!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo, comfortable safe surroundings and steps to the beach. Amazing view from balcony enjoyed every morning, evening and sometimes midday too! Due to the breeze coming in at night we also only ran the air conditioning 1 night for our entire 8 night stay. We have been staying in VRBO condos in playa for years and have always had to run the air to sleep at night. Wonderful! All bedrooms had private ensuites which were so nice as we travelled as 3 couples. Mega grocery store was a bit of a hike but it felt good to stretch the legs from being on the airplane and we cabbed back ($7) with our groceries. Condo is on the 3rd floor and stairs wind around making it difficult to traverse if you can't do stairs. We had no issues but all should know before booking. We were very comfortable here and loved the pool and beach (thank you Leigh and Bob for access to beach chairs!). Neither area was ever crowded and we easily found chairs for all 6 of us. We would consider staying here again. Thank you.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We also find that the hike out to the Mega is an interesting walk providing access to sights and stores not on the typical tourist path, but carrying groceries back is a bit less enjoyable. The cabs are always available though, so it has become a comfortable routine. Leigh and Bob

Great get away!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is beautiful and comfortable. Just as in the photos on the site. The view is lovely - better than the photo. The property is very well maintained. The pool is clean and inviting.

The location is perfect. An easy walk to the beach and 5th avenue restaurants and shops. Plenty to do within walking distance or cab. Safe.

The condo had everything we needed.

The owners were very helpful and easily accessible during planning. They provided helpful information about the unit and area. The property manager is a great guy.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and that Mike, our wonderful property manager was able to assist you with any questions or logistical issues. He has been living full-time at NatzTiHa for over 10 years and he really knows the ins and outs of Playa. We turn to him ourselves each time we arrive to learn what is new in town and which restaurants have recently been added. He is a great resource, especially for first time visitors. Thanks again! Leigh and Bob
