EXQUISITE OCEAN VIEW PENTHOUSE.....JUST OFF THE BEACH!

Playa del Carmen Apartment Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 2 (4 with sofa bed in living area)

The Plantation House is unique to Playa del Carmen. Quietly located between the chic area of Playa's famous 5th Ave. and famous white sandy beaches only one block from each. It's style Inspired by the grand Caribbean Island estates. Boasting abundant, large openings dressed with adjustable white shutters and decorative fret work, which lets that cool sea breeze flow in. Together with the antique patterned floor, the Plantation House will take you back to the Victorian era, when vacationing was a truly elegant affair.

The penthouse we are featuring, has been called one of Playa's most charming sea view suites. The ocean view can be enjoyed from every room. Watch the boats pass by while you breakfast in bed or walk out to a large private roof terrace, where you may lounge in a chair or take a refreshing outdoor shower!

Things to do......: In our beautiful tropical courtyard there is a small pool where you can take a dip, or sit in the half moon bench and flick those jacuzzi jets on for a little hydro massage.

Speaking of massage, we also have a professional masseuse who offers her services in your suite, at much better rates then you will find at the local spas.

A beautiful turquoise beach awaits you just around the corner, where you can relax,

safely swim, hire deep sea fishing boats, scuba dive, snorkel, windsurf, kite-board, or sail.

Around the other corner you will find an international Broadway of interesting shops, spas, cafes and restaurants.

In town you may play on beautifully groomed golf coarse, a short drive out side of town will take you to Mayan Ruins and under water caves.

My husband and I visited Plantation House in 2006 for the first time to celebrate our honeymoon and have been back three times since. We were blown away by our experience and much of that has to do with Plantation House and it's owner family. Joe and Francoise are filled with helpful tips for all types of travelers. We most appreciate the advice about hidden restaurants and activities that are more off-the-beaten-path types recommendations. The condos are all beautiful (we have stayed in three of the five), and the initmate environment creates a home-away-from-home feeling. Beautiful and highly recommended.

Delightful Hideaway Superior Views! What a find!!

  • 5 of 5
How fortunate we were to have booked with Francoise and Joe! Such a peaceful and secluded location--yet in the middle of all the action. A walk around the corner got us to the beach and the Indigo Club where the friendly and attentive staff took great care to remember us and always kept us quenched with drinks and brought lunch to us under the umbrella on the beach---superb Ceviche and Carpaccio high culinary attention to detail---be sure to get the vouchers to get a decent discount.The breakfast buffet is a great way to get the day started at the Indigo Beach Club. We waited to try the "Imprevist" restaurant for breakfast directly in front of the Plantation House till our final morning--it too was wonderful organic and superb quality and presentation.

Our neighbors were return patrons who stay for lenghty periods--which proves that the hospitality and accomodations are a fine value. Our most important comment is that Francoise was so helpful in recomending an itinerary as we rented a car for a couple of days--we got to meet her and shared stories and a few glasses of wine!! She really made our stay complete with her "hip and intelligent" commentary and restaurant recomedations. WE WILL CERTAINLY MAKE A RETURN VISIT AND RECOMMEND PLANTATION HOUSE TO ANYONE WHO WANTS TO BE IN THE ACTION BUT STILL HAVE GREAT PRIVACY!

The St. Barts suite had everything--patio with shower and even a washing machine

Perfect location to beach & 5th Ave! Best kept secret in Playa!

I was a solo traveler looking for relaxation. I was referred to stay in Plantation House and am SO glad I did. Find the beach by walking to the corner and turning left, find 5th Ave by walking 1 block over (plantation house is on the street that runs parallel to it). I would stay in the St Lucia suite again because it faces the ocean, has a CUTE living room/dining room/kitchen/bathroom setup downstairs and then your lovely bedroom is upstairs! The bedroom even has two chaise chairs outside on your balcony as well as an outdoor shower! After coming home from a day at the beach you can relax, take a dip in the pool downstairs or sit and watch the sunset. There is even a cute cat roaming around and I used the snorkel equipment and beach chairs that are available for free. SO amazing and I CANNOT wait to stay again! Thank you Francois & Joe! xo

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from a perfect week at a penthouse apartment in the Plantation House. There is no better location in Playa. Great sea views and only a block from the beach or 5th Avenue. The apartment was very clean, well equipped, and incredibly charming. The outdoor shower with an ocean view just makes you smile. Joe made the entire rental process a pleasure. He arranged transportation, gave helpful advice, and even connected my wife with an excellent masseuse that came right to the apartment. (twice!) We would recommend Plantation House without reservation to anyone looking for a peaceful and romantic holiday in Playa. We will be returning.

Quiet and Quaint but somehow in the middle of it all

  • 5 of 5
The reason I chose this property was because it had some architecturally interesting qualities compared to every other condo in town (which seemed like americana versions of what a beach condo 'should' be). Those qualities hold true in person. The reasons I think this was an excellent place to stay are the towering beach view from our secluded queen bed, the close-enough proximity to the beach (maybe 100 meters), and the outdoor shower overlooking the Caribbean.

Those are great reasons to stay here. The icing is a caring couple who you can talk to about what you want to do/where you want to go and they can suggest ideas. It seems they've been there long enough to know. Don't forget to read the guest book to see what places other guests liked--it worked as our best resource for finding great food/cenotes/beaches/entertainment.

Great deal

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were so happy when we arrived at the Plantation house. The style was so cute with lots of details. The St Lucia suite where we stayed was perfect for us. The views are great, we spent every afternoon on the terrace watching the sea and sipping Margaritas.
We were so close to everything, the beach the 5th, all a short walk away. Joe and Francoise were great hosts they live right there and are very helpful with tips on restaurants and places to see.
We will definitely be back!!
