My wife and I stayed in this villa in 2012 and enjoyed it so much we bought it for are future retirement home .

We live in Houston , Texas and honeymooned in cancun / playa many years ago and now own a little piece of paradise !

Once your there you will know exactly what we call paradise !

David smith purchased this villa in 2012

It just seems to be close to everything you could possibly need ! And it is !

This villa is in the most well known private community in the Rivera Maya region .. PLAYACAR . Yet as a guest I must remind you this is MEXICO and water ,power , internet , cable ect . Are subject to outages beyond my control . Storms wind and just plain old wear and tear can at times cause an outage , and that being said , again this is Mexico and often times repairs are treated as MAÑANA TIME . Which in reality means when we get to it !

I just wanted to include this as an advisory , certainly not to suggest it's even a possibility during your stay , just advice for a coastal zone !

Clean and Well Furnished, but communication was a challenge

This home is spacious and nicely furnished-- true to the pictures. We stayed for a week with two other couples and found there to be ample room for everyone, and with a bathroom attached to each bedroom, we were quite comfortable. It was very clean and well kept, and we had maid service twice during the week. Everything worked fine.

Our efforts to contact the onsite managers failed however. We were only able to reach them once, on the first day when our shuttle from the airport could not find the address. It would be helpful to get a detailed map in advance. When we could not work the safe we called and left a message, but there was no response. The next day we spent an hour figuring it out. When we were about out of drinkable water we also called, but there was no response. Fortunately we had maid service the next day and we managed to show the maid the level on the water dispenser. We left four messages in all, in both English and Spanish, but there was no contact. I would recommend getting as much information in advance as possible.

This is a great place if you love birds! It is right next to a bird sanctuary, and there are bird cages adjacent to the back of the property, maybe 40 feet or so from the back lanai. They seranade you at sunset and they herald the day at sunrise. The beach is a very short walk, although it took us four days to figure this out. (Again, I would recommend getting as much information as possible in advance.) It's a beautiful beach and not too crowded. The location is great: very near the shops and restaurants. We didn't rent a car and enjoyed walking most of the time.

The wifi that is available near the pool (very nice pool) was only working one day while we were there. We tore trhough the 100 MB of data we had arranged for in advance, but did find free wifi at some restaurants. The food in Playa is great! It is a good idea to watch prices, though. Some restaurants charged twice the price of others for very similar menu items and a very similar environment. We found that most of the shops carried identical merchandise, and many are willing to bargain over price. We snorkeled with the turtles and swam in a cenote and hiked in the ruins-- all great!

The weather was warm and so were the people; an enjoyable vacation!

Terrific and helpful

After much careful research my wife and i booked this vacation villa because of its quality and close proximity to downtown playa del Carmen. We contacted the owner through VRBO and requested additional information and we were thoroughly impressed with level of detail provided. Our interactions with the owner by e-mail were extremely helpful. Indeed, he even took the time to contact us directly at home in Canada to answer any of our questions. That was a really nice touch!

All that to say, we were left with a very positive first impression and knew we had made the right decision to book this villa. The booking process through VRBO was seamless and the owner followed up afterwards to put us in touch with his property management contact for his villa. Unfortunately a couple of months from our intended arrival date, my wife and I had to cancel our planned stay. It was a disappointment to say the least. Anyways, the owner ensured that VRBO processed our refunds immediately and within days we had our deposits back on our credit card. Again, even though we had to cancel, the entire process was nothing short of amazing. The owner was helpful throughout. We look forward to returning to this villa in the future and because of our positive experience throughout the booking, we would have no problem recommending this owner to anyone looking to book a villa near playa del carmen.

Thanks Again
Rob and Eleanor

great vacation home

Our family wants to say "thank you very much" for letting us stay in your Playcar house. The location was perfect, walking distance to the beach, 5th ave. It was located in a very safe and private community. The house was very spacious and had everything we needed and more. I will definetly come back and stay here. Our family that was also vacationing in Playa came over to visit and feel in love with the home. The property manager was very nice and easy to contact. The place was perfect overall. It was more than what we expected. Thank you again.

We wanted to say thank you for ensuring our stay in Casa Guacamaya was everything we wanted it to be! We enjoyed the spaciousness of your home and the private area in the back was a wonderful place to enjoy the tropical birds and relax. We loved the location to the beach and shopping and restraunts. We fell in love with Playa del Carmen and hope to return many times and we will certainly contact you when we do!
