  • Romantic, Family Friendly, This Place Has It All

    "We traveled to Playa del Carmen as a family of six, grandparents in our sixties, children in their thirties and grandchildren seven and three. Gillian's beautiful condo accommodated us all perfectly. The condo is visually stunning, three large bedrooms, one on the first floor and two on the second and three full bathrooms. The layout meant that we could be together and still have privacy when we wanted a little alone time. The kitchen had everything we needed and although we loved going out to sample the wonderful food we also enjoyed shopping at the Mega, a short cab ride away, and making our own feasts. The dining room fit us all easily and there were plenty of dishes. There was a blender so we could make frozen drinks which we then took out to the amazing patio that faces a private, bird watchers paradise. Each day we identified new birds and our grandchildren also loved watching for the coatis, small furry animals, that passed through several times a day. The pool was clean and large enough to swim in or just to lay on a tube and soak up the sun. A short walk from the condo brought us to a white sand beach that was perfect for walking, sitting or splashing in the waves. The condo came with beach chairs, umbrella and cooler - everything we could want to enjoy the spectacular view. It was also a short walk into Playa which we did frequently. Gillian was so helpful in answering all our questions before we left and Chris, the condo manager, was helpful while we were in Mexico. Playa itself was a lovely place to visit. It felt very safe, it was easy to get around both on foot and using taxis - we never felt the need for a car. The food was excellent from the cheap and tasty tacos directly across the street from the Mega grocery store to the more upscale options along 5th Avenue, a pedestrian shopping and eating area closed to vehicles for many, many blocks. We've been to a number of places in Mexico but this was our first time in Playa. We will be back."

  • Wonderful stay, location and overall experience

    "We stayed at this location in April 2016 and we had an absolute wonderful time. Sue and Steve were fantastic to work with and we were delighted that they opened their home to us. The location is perfect! A very short cab right into Playa Del Carmen where we ventured out to eat most nights. A very short walk to the beach through the Reef Resort which we were provided with free access. We stayed here a week and having our own private condo was amazing, the pool was never busy and having access to an entire suite was great. We would love to stay here again!!"

  • Perfect for Celebrating with Family and Friends

    "Overall the experience at La Perla Blanca was great. During the booking process, I had multiple questions and Giorgio the owner answered all of them. The booking process was very easy, online and Giorgio provided very timely confirmation. The house is exactly as pictured, 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. The house is very modern, with a washer and driver, clean sheets, and fully outfitted kitchen and grill. The private pool was wonderful and clean, and we spent a lot of time there. The pool has multi-colored party lights that kick on after dark, but they weren't too bright and didn't disturb our sleep. The location of the house was great too; about 5-10 minutes from downtown and 5-10 minutes from the beach. The only negative is that because Playacar is a residential area, there are no nearby beach clubs. But we were happy to walk into town to find those. The house is equipped with beach chairs and a cooler. The kitchen has most necessary equipment and basics, but there were a few staples that we ended up buying for the house including a corkscrew, cooking oil, etc and left there. The wifi and hot water worked great while we were there. Sergio, the house manager, was very responsive and answered all our questions. He also helped coordinate transportation and day trips via his contact. He also helped us arrange for a homecooked meal one night, cooked by his mother Laura. She is an AMAZING cook, and you should definitely ask for the chicken mole and her specialty pork dish, if you have time. If her chicken mole were packaged and available for international shipment, we would be her first customers! Absolutely no complaints. Thanks Giorgio for providing a great setting for a birthday celebration!"

  • Could not have been better

    "I usually try to write a balanced review listing both positives and negatives. In this case all I have are overwhelmingly positive things to say. We've been at this property on three different occasions (a different condo each time) and this unit was by far was the best. Fully upgraded and well cared for. The kitchen is fully stocked if you'd like to eat in, and it's only a few minute walk away from a number of restaurants if you would prefer to dine out. The patio overlooks the pool area and amazing Caribbean ocean. Take advantage of happy hour from 2:00 to 3:00 each day at the pool bar (different drinks on special each day) and try a hamburger fresh off the grill. The beach is incredible with plenty of lounging chairs available. Highly recommend Xaman ha for first timers or returnees alike. A big thank you to the owner for allowing us to enjoy their spectacular condo."
