About Patricia Watson

We live in Greenwood Village, Colorado.

Patricia Watson purchased this house in 2005

Why Patricia Watson chose Playa del Carmen

We bought this house after visiting several all-inclusive resorts in the area and being seriously disappointed by the mediocre quality of the bedding and food; and by a desire to have a 'home' to stay in and enjoy with friends and family, rather than a series of cramped hotel rooms. This house allows us to take large groups of friends and family to the house, walk to dozens of restaurants in town, and have dramatically better accomodations than any resort in the area. Uniquely, we purchased the house with 'guest rights' to use the pools and beach chairs at the neighboring Reef Club Playacar Resort.

What makes this house unique

The house has the most dramatic pool area I have ever seen, constructed several feet below the grade of the house, around an existing cenote. See pix.

Great place for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience overall. We had a large group in Playa Del Carmen for a wedding and this home was perfect for us. The house is huge so each family was able to have privacy when needed. The beach is very close and is absolutely beautiful. For the price, you can't beat it.

Fantastic Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

11 of us, ages 7 months to 84, had a fantastic stay at Casa Paradisus! At the end of a small cul-de-sac, only 150 yards from a beautiful beach, we enjoyed every minute of our 5 days there. As others have stated, the photos don't do it justice. The public spaces, living room, patio, pool area are large and well-furnished and the bedrooms allow for privacy and retreat when desired. We cooked a lot and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking for a large group. One of the highlights was on our last night we hired Reyna and Victor to make us an amazing Mexican feast, Pozole, panuchos, and some of the most delicious flan we have ever had! Great trip. Patricia, the owner, was helpful and easy to contact, making this an easy, unstressful holiday for our family

Needs upkeep

  • 3 of 5

The house is beautiful, we didn't have Wi-Fi, I'm just assuming it was because of the rain or

lack or having someone check on it before our arrival. But my Son is a programmer and was able to fix it. I asked the owner before we left for Playa del Carmen, if there were TVs, she said yes, but did not say there was no TV service at all.

but there are TVs, we connected our own Netflix, in the only TV that we could, and the DVDs from the US are not going to work in their DVD players. You have to go out to rent movies, if you want.

The Air and light was out for a day except for the living room, they said it was a short in the city part. the refrigerator went out two days before we left and we only stayed 6 nights.

The workers that maintain the front yard, are doing a great job, they are very respectful and I know they brought a refrigerator the morning we left. There was a small refrigerator with no light, made me forget some things I was bringing with me.

I lost one of my children and his fiancée to the heat on the first day we were there.

The master bedroom is beautiful and huge, and has a beautiful bathroom.

the house is sort of an antique and that's very nice.

All in all I would suggest you ask the questions about the features that you will be using.

Casa Paradiso is Awesome!

  • 4 of 5

As others have said in their reviews, the pictures don't do it justice. We stayed at the house with 10 people and we had plenty of room to spread out but still spent lots of quality family time hanging out on the front patio listening to music on the bose speaker that was there while kicking back some cold ones. The kids (adults too) loved the pool and we spent some fun time there too. We all walked to town once or twice a day, and caught cabs back easily if we were tired. The beach is a short walk away and had almost no one on it most days. Only complaint if there is one is that there were only a few not so great beach chairs there, and we could have used at least half a dozen if not one for everyone there. However, this is a minor complaint compared to all the other fantastic things you get with this house. The owner, house manager, housekeeper and private chef were all tremendous to work with and helped make our stay one we will never forget. Thanks to all! Rent this house, you won't be sorry!

Beautiful House/Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just had the most amazing week in this beautiful house. Wish we could have stayed longer.

As other guests have mentioned, the pictures don't tell the true story. The floor plan is very unique, in that everybody can have their own suite, complete with large bathrooms. We had three couples and 2 children, everyone was happy to get their own space. The beach is no more than a 3-4 minute walk. The house is very clean, has everything you need. If you are looking at a vacation rental, BOOK THIS now! You won't be sorry.

Car: recommended

The house is located one block north of the Reef Club Playacar Resort. It is at the end of a cul-de-sac on a side street called Retourno Palenque, which is just off of Paseo Xaman-Ha, the main road that runs through the Playacar area of Playa Del Carmen. It is a fifteen minute walk from 5th Avenue, and a 3 minute walk to the beach following a short path directly to the beach from the back porch of the house.
