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.

Exceeded our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the coolest properties I have ever rented. It is perfect for giving everyone their own private space. The main house (red roof) has an ENORMOUS bedroom with a kids bed in the walk-in closet. The bathroom is gorgeous as well. The kitchen is minimally stocked when it comes to spices and pantry but we did not do much cooking while we were there. There is a second very large bedroom in the main house next to the living area. The outdoor bar is so fun and seats quite a few people. The second house (white roof) has two separate bedrooms (HUGE) each with their own bathrooms. The one upstairs has an additional bed for a child and a seating area. The rooftop deck was great at night, a little too bright during the day but the views were spectacular. The pool is so fun and unique. There is a grotto-like area around the bottom where 2 turtles live, super fun for the kids. There are 2 trails to the private beach, one has steep rock stairs so if there is an issue with access there is another trail right across the cul-de-sdac for easier walking access. Playacar is gated and has a lot of security so safety was never an issue. The house comes with access to The Reef which is a resort right down the beach, super beautiful. The house comes stocked with TONS of beach towels, lots of beach toys and bikes that can be used to ride into town very easily. The AC worked very well and there were units in each of the bedrooms for personal comfort. Patricia (the owner) was very easy to reach during our stay with any questions and were great with food recommendations. We never had a problem using American money or credit cards but we did exchange some money before we went into town for a day of souvenir shopping. This house is amazing and if you are looking for somewhere to house couples or multiple families, this house is perfect.

Fabulous casa!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Paradisus is wonderful. Plenti of room for all, in a lovely neighborhood that felt very safe. Having the ocean and Playa Del Carmen within walking distance is a bonus and coming back to enjoy the pool or a game of ping pong was so much fun. The owner is very responsive and helpful. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

Amazing tropical getaway

  • 5 of 5

Patricia's home is beautiful and she was a wonderful host. Communication with her and her manager, Omar, was very good. The house is spacious and very well equipped--and is actually like a big house with 2 bedrooms and then a separate house with 2 bedrooms with their own entrances from the outside. Beach is a short walk away and absolutely spectacular. Pool was a bit chilly for us in January but we enjoyed visiting by it in the afternoon while the kids napped. Even had TWO pack and play cribs for our toddler and baby, sand toys, boogie boards, beach chairs, etc! Enjoyed walks and bike rides into town. ESPECIALLY enjoyed hiring Eunice to do our daily shopping and preparation of some absolutely delicious Mexican dinners. She was very gracious and sweet to work with. Now for the very few small negatives... but feel like they'd be helpful to be communicated. No dishwasher which wasn't that much of a problem for us. Shower in master bedroom kinda trickles out and it takes a while to use the valves to get the right temperature. There was wi fi but it didn't work too great with a lot of people on at the same time. At the time, there was construction on each side of us which made it not so enjoyable to sit outside during the day. Also--be prepared for those lovely local wildlife--raccoons and sereque. We enjoyed using the FOUR bikes to ride into town but they do need some maintenance on them. I think the biggest hurdle for us (literally) with carting a stoller, infant, toddler and preschooler to the beach--was the steps down from the backyard to the street. Kinda dangerous and tough for the little ones to navigate. But all in all we'd go back in a heartbeat. A really beautiful place and a great setting! A wonderful tropical getaway! Thank you so much Patricia!

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

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.
