A beautiful luxury villa that is just a short walk to the beach and town. This is a three master bedroom, 3 ½ bath, private home with a unique, modern Mexican architectural style; colonial interiors and beautiful hand-crafted furnishings. All rooms have independent air-conditioning and ceiling fans with remote control.
On the main floor you will find a large living room and dining area. There is a spacious state of the art kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, microwave and fresh water cooler. This kitchen is fantastic for entertaining. There is a gas grill on the patio if you prefer to cook outside and you can eat at the patio table and then relax close to the HEATED pool on the rattan couch and chairs.
On the main floor is one bedroom with two single beds, (which can be converted to a king-size bed), and a beautiful marble and granite ensuite.
As you access the upstairs you will find a reading area with a futon to accommodate extra guests. From there you enter either of two master bedroom suites, each suite has a king-size bed and beautiful granite and marble ensuite. Each of the master bedrooms has a private balcony with furniture for relaxing, while enjoying a refreshing margarita.

Thanks for everything Mark. We had a fabulous time and can't wait to go back. The beach is out of this world and the sand is white and powdery. I golfed 3 rounds on the couse right behind the house and just loved it. The weather was perfect for the 2 weeks that we were there. Every night we walked to 5th avenue for supper, shopping and just to people watch. What a great spot. We stayed in and used the BBQ a few times and would recommend that to everyone. We were able to find inexpensive groceries in huge clean modern stores (Walmart was our favorite) and even took a run into Costco in Cancun for steaks. The Mayan Riviera is truly a beautiful gem and thank you again for exposing us to that. We look forward to renting from you again.
Our family of 4 adults and 2 children had a wonderful vacation at beautiful Casa Alegria. The Casa is one of 7 luxury villas in a lush garden setting surrounding a HEATED pool. The grounds and pool were well maintained and the housekeeper kept the villa interior very clean. The complex is quiet and the neighbours were very friendly and helpful. The design of Casa Alegria affords everyone their own space when needed. The bedrooms are tastefully decorated, with excellent linens and extremely comfortable beds, each with its own ensuite. We very much enjoyed the covered patio with its comfortable furniture, patio table and chairs and state of the art BBQ. The living room furniture was comfortable and the Canadian Satellite TV was a real bonus for relaxing in the evenings. The well equipped kitchen was a cook’s dream with the large island and lots of counter space for meal preparation. In addition there was a never ending supply of drinking water. Casa Alegria is a short walk to the beautiful Playacar beaches and when you wish to eat out, Playa del Carmen is only a 10 minute stroll to the many fine restaurants. Playacar is a very safe area to walk day or night and you can also enjoy the Mayan ruins that are close by. It was a pleasure to rent from Mark, his genuine concern for his guest’s comfort came through during all of our communications. Thank you Mark for allowing us to use your beautiful Casa and also for arranging the airport shuttle. I would definitely recommend Casa Alegria to anyone looking for luxury accommodations.
The villa is even more beautiful than the pictures portray. SUPER clean and spacious with excellent cleaning service throughout the week. Wonderful owners, always replied promptly to any questions and offered a lot of help with activities in the area. The neighbours were very welcoming and helpful and you never felt like a stranger. So much hospitality in their community of home owners! Was great to make meals when we wanted to or eat out at the large variety of restaurants nearby (try the beef from Super Carnes called Arrachera Nacional, incredible and an easy walk from the villa down to 1 Calle South and 20th Ave.) The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare meals and there were condiments to use which was nice to not have to buy much of that. We just replaced anything we used up. Felt very safe in Playacar and out on 5th Avenue which is about a 10-15 minute walk to the start. Good distance to the Mega grocery store and we walked there if we only wanted a few items otherwise took a taxi. Great to laze around the villa on the deck or in the pool, or go on an excursion. Xel-Ha was our favourite day trip, Tulum and Coba were amazing too. Lots of activities for a variety of age groups. The air conditioning was nice after a day in the hot sun. Overall a wonderful home away from home with the bonus of sun and beaches!
Our vacation at Casa Alegria in Playacar was fantastic. The home was beautiful, even better than expected. Close to all amenities, walking distance to 5th Avenue and all types of great restaurants. The pool & grounds are immaculately kept and manicured by a very friendly gardener. The housekeeping was excellent and the "Towel Art' done by the housekeeper is unsurpassed. Quick and easy access to the beach and great, friendly , helpful neighbors. We loved it!
Stayed at Casa Alegria through Christmas 2014. Great experience, first time in Mexico without doing the all inclusive thing. So much life and character to the 5th Ave. restaurants compared to the all incl. With the Reef club options, there is a huge amount of flexibility on how you can construct your holiday, you can even have it both ways. Our trip was a rather last minute thing, as such the owners were very helpful filling in the details and making arrangements etc both in and outbound. We were warmly welcomed by the friendly property owners who share the pool area. As stated in previous reviews it is a high quality, well maintained property with conscientious owners. Photos in the ad are accurate, though the palm trees are huge now.
Thank you Mark and Yvonne for letting us stay at your beautiful home in Playacar. Our whole experince was fantastic from the get go. The information we were provided prior to our departure was valuable in planning our holiday and packed with great places to see and eat at. Having transportation arranged ahead of time to and from the airport was a blessing. Maria met us at the property when we arrived and showed us around and made sure we were comfortable before leaving. The management team answered any questions we had very quickly it is a nice bonus to have someone to contact if need be. The house itself was even more beautiful in person. We loved having the covered patio to enjoy morning coffees and evenings sharing our favorite moments of the day. Having the pool right outside your door and access to the Reef Beach Club just down the street are great perks, we made use of both. We loved that Playa Del Carmen was in walking distance and made it a nightly ritual to go into town and try one of the many restaurants suggested. We are still talking about the amazing food and service we got at Mi Pueblo. After staying at Casa Alegria i think we may have been spoiled for all-inclusives. Having a comfortable place to call home for the week with all the ammenities was amazing. We will be recommending to all our friends and family travelling in the area to book here. Thanks again for sharing your home with us.
Having Carlos, from the property management meet us at the house when we arrived was a very nice touch. He showed us around the house and gave us suggestions, brochures and maps for shopping, restaurants, excursions, etc. We were blown away by the property from the moment we got there. The house was immaculate and incredible, from the large comfortable living room to the fully equipped chef's kitchen. The covered patio and the pool was such a bonus. .We loved having access to the beach at the Reef club and had the best massages ever from Alfonso. The city of Playa itself is great, a short walk from the house and extremely safe and friendly. Another bonus was the convenience of the taxi's, they took us to the grocery store and to any excursions we did while we were in Playa. We had a wonderful time at Casa Alegria and would come back in a heartbeat. Mark & Yvonne, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us.
