Casa Paraiso del Caribe is a quiet oasis in the heart of fabulous Playa del Carmen, steps from the world famous 5th Avenue and Playa's beautiful public beaches.
This tastefully decorated and furnished two-bedroom condo will be your home in paradise. Stay in and cook in the gourmet kitchen with granite countertops or walk to a selection of world class restaurants in minutes.
Spend the day shopping in Playa's funky pedestrian mall 'La Quinta' or relax by the pool with a good book and a cold drink. Everything you need for the vacation of a lifetime is waiting for you. Great for families and couples.
Playa del Carmen is our home away from home. We were married there in 2002 and keep coming back for more! We love the variety of things to do and see and relaxing on the beautiful Caribbean beaches.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2007
We love the town, our favourite place in all of Mexico. It's like Disneyland for grown-ups!
It's a spacious, very well built unit. Lovely really. But the key to us is the location. It's right in the heart of town just off 5th and a short stroll to the beach, best of all - quiet at night.
We had an excellent stay at Playa Kaan at the end of March. We were traveling with our 18 month old daughter, so I did a lot of research to make sure we selected the perfect location so we could all enjoy. I wanted to make sure we stayed somewhere that was walking distance to the beach and food, had 2-bedrooms, a pool, and wasn't in a giant complex or resort where I felt trapped in the room while our daughter was sleeping. Playa Kaan ticked all the boxes! Having 2-bedrooms was key, so she could nap and go to sleep early without us disturbing her. Also, the balcony looks over the pool so while she was napping, I felt totally comfortable heading pool side to get some sun because it was in such close proximity. And at night, my husband and I would hang out on the balcony playing cards and having drinks while she slept...it was truly perfect. Also awesome, the management company was able to loan us a pack-and-play, so that was a huge relief to not have to travel with one. And since we walked everywhere, we never had to use the stroller or a car seat the entire week. And the pool was ideal since it has a really shallow area (less than a foot deep?) so she could splash around and not really need the giant floaty boat that we brought. We had the best time, and loved walking to the beach and 5th avenue every day. Had amazing food, met some really nice people also staying at Playa Kaan, and just had an awesome time all around. Traveling with a toddler can be stressful, but with the awesome setup the condo provided for us, it was totally worth it!
My daughter and I just spent a wonderful week at this super condo! As stated by other visitors, the location was easy walking to the beach, Walmart, Mega Store and our favorite store La Europa! The pool area is quiet and relaxing and the full time residents seem extremely nice and friendly. The kitchen is well equipped and the ice maker makes ice fast! The 24 hour security people were always at the gate and ready to laugh while they helped us unlock it! For some reason it took us until our last day to get the hang of it! We had a problem with one of the air conditioners on our arrival and the property managers responded to our call immediately and fixed the problem. They were very helpful and pleasant. The balcony was our favorite spot and we spent many pleasant hours relaxing and enjoying the tropical view down to the pool. I would highly recommend this condo and Chris was a breeze to book with. Cant wait to return! Oh, do not forget to pack your umbrella if you go during hurricane season! You can also use it for shade if you are fortunate enough to go to Tulum! Amazing!
This was our second stay at the condo. The location is just perfect. The grounds are beautiful and we always felt secure. The condo is clean and very well maintained. We were here for two weeks and it truly felt like our home away from home. Thank you Chris and Lisa!
This condo is everything it says it is! The property is safe since there is a security guard around the clock. It is walking distance from everything and the owners left a list of restaurants for all occasions which was much appreciated since there are so many options. It is close to all the nightlife however very quiet so no worries if you simply want to go have good night's sleep. The property itself is clean and the space is well divided. The 2 bathrooms are a major plus. If you need anything the rental agency that oversees the property is 1 block away. I would rent this property again in a heartbeat! Thank you very much Lisa & Chris.
The condo was pretty much as shown on the listing, cozy, clean, nice bldg, pool, good location but we ran into several unusual problems that kept us from enjoying our stay.
Upon arrival we were met by the owners manager, Vimex who gave us the key. Before they left we found one problem, except for the living room we couldn’t figure out how to set the air conditioners temperature controls. I wrote to the owner:
Vimex and the building guy and a Vimex repairmen were here all here trying unsucessfully to figure out how to work the air conditioners. We got them blowing cool air but can't figure how how to set them to maintain a comfortable temp.
I also wrote that there were no instructions for using the safe.
The owner, who seemed like a nice guy when I spoke to him before renting the condo, replied:
We have always just either turned the A/C units on or off as necessary. I've never been able to figure out the programming.
As far as the safe. Did Vimex not show you how to use it?
I was quite disappointed about the air-conditioning especially since most nights during our stay I awoke several times either too hot or too cold and had to then turn the air conditioner on or off.
And, no, Vimex had not shown us how to use the safe. So we had to carry our vacation money around with us for a few days until instructions were left for us.
On the second day we notified the owner that there was no hot water. He said a repairman would be there the net day. When we came home and found there was still no hot water we started tinkering with the hot water tank. We shouldn’t have!! Enough gas got loose in the laundry room so that when we finally got a flame there was a small explosion. Fortunately at that moment we were at arms length to the hot water tank and the flames only came within a inch or two of my face.
The toilet in the second bathroom didn’t work properly but we decided to let our guest not use it, rather than have to call for help again.
Vimex said that they would come by the night before we left to wrap things up. We waited for them but the never showed. (Possibly because they never took our security deposit so they didn’t have to come to return it). They never called, didn’t show up.
As we were leaving, at 3am, for an early flight, a man showed up and said we were supposed to give him the key. We had no idea who he was but absent any other information, we did as he asked.
The condo is for sale and its a nice place.
Excellent condo. Tv's in the bedrooms as well as the living room. If one of us was tired, it was nice to lay on the bed and continue the movie we left in the living room. After frolicking in the waves some days, we were pooped by evening, we appreciated the comfortable living room furniture There is a waterfall in the beautiful courtyard with pool babbling outside the master bedroom until about 4pm. Peaceful. Location is great. Walk to colectivos, wah wahs, ferry terminal, walmart, mega, beach. If you see that coco bongos is down the street a block at least, note coco bongos is an enclosed building and the condo is tucked in the corner of the court yard, not facing the street so we never heard it. Perhaps other condos that are facing the street can hear it but not us. Beds comfy, cooling fans, inside laundry and the property mgr is just up the street. the security guard would phone her for us. Immediate help for our minor problem. Pool was large enough for my friend and I to float on tubes like a couple of bimbos with our plastic cups full of something tasty. The clientele that rents here are mature couples so conversation around the pool was engaging. It is a quiet, friendly place. A balcony! A must for us. All four fit unto it and looked over the pool and lush courtyard with three mature Royal Palms, gorgeous. I really can't say anything bad...it was all good!!!
Calle 12, between Avenidas 10 and 15. Downtown Playa del Carmen yet on a quiet private street. Shopping and dining on 5th Avenue are just around the corner and it's two blocks to the beach!
