“Lovely house and grounds, great location”
Reviewed 1 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

This is a great property that comfortably accommodates eight people as there are three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. It is well equipped, has efficient air conditioning and ceiling fans and is very comfortable. The grounds and swimming pool are a great place to relax. The property is situated in a pleasant and quiet road with 24 hour security so feels very secure. The beautiful beach is a short 5-10 minute walk away - be sure to take the path opposite the tennis courts and past the ruins (as explained in the house handbook) otherwise it becomes a very long walk! When approaching from the house there is no sign for the path so it is easy to miss. The lively fifth avenue is about 10-15 minutes by foot. If you don’t have a car (as we didn’t) the larger supermarkets are within walking distance but you will probably need a taxi back to the house if you have much to carry.
The owners were very helpful during the booking process and returned my deposit promptly. The property manager Dante was very efficient and accommodating.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property and hope to return one day.

“Nice place but way too far from the beach”
Reviewed 15 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We enjoyed our stay in playa del Carmen the way we always do .
we were disappointed that they said a five minute walk to the beach ...it was more like 13 14..15....little too far to be lugging all your stuff to the beach.... this is why we come...for the love of the beach..... that was the only drawback.... place was nice ....pool was great.... but We are nearing 60 and very healthy ....we are spoiled from all-inclusive ....the condo was great...but way to far ...for eating at night. Unless you took cabs everywhere....and we did (more money).... Lots more walking than we bargained for....I go away to relax....would not have booked had I would of known....so far from beach....I would look in the future for places right on beach or one block off... Nice people to rent from...no problems there...

Management Response
15 Dec 2013
It sounds as though you did not find the short cut to the Playacar beach which is only a short walk of about 5 minutes from the house. We are surprised at your comments because so many of our past guests have told us what a great location the house has and no-one else has complained about the location. Our past reviews on other websites have mentioned how close the house is to the beach and the restaurants / shops of 5th Avenue. The house is located in Playacar Phase 2 and within Playacar Phase 2 it is one of the closest houses to both the beach and town entrance. The exact location is shown on both Flipkey and also on our own website via Google Maps. All the vacation houses around ours also describe the beach and 5th Avenue as a 5 minute walk. Houses in Playacar Phase 1 are right on the beach, but of course the rental rates in Phase 1 are very much higher!
