For the past 12 years we have traveled to the Playa del Carmen area for the most beautiful beaches, great shopping and dining and clear aquamarine waters. Our family and friends love this area and we have thousands of memories. We can travel from our home in Texas and be in our condo in paradise in 3 hours. Come make your memories here.

We're in the perfect location!! Only 10 steps from 5th but just far enough off of 5th where it's not loud at night. The beach is only a 2 minute easy walk. We're right in the middle of the best part of Playa!

THERE AREN'T SUPERLATIVES TO DESCRIBE CASA PARAISO!

There aren't superlatives to describe Casa Paraiso!
  • 5 of 5
We were at Casa Paraiso in April 2012, then stayed a second time in May 2014. Honestly, I can't say enough good things about this accommodation! From Kris, one of the owners, who is exceptional to work with...always quickly responsive, always friendly...to the actual accommodations, it is a fabulous condo! We are now not talking about "if" we go back to Playa but "when"...and Casa Paraiso will always be our first choice. You will hit an absolute home run in booking your stay here! The location is the best there could be in Playa, the accommodations are wonderful, and you will never deal with anyone as great as Kris!

COMFORTABLE HOME BASE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 (2 adults 12 and 14 year old) spent 6 days at Casa Paraiso. Good communication with the owner, Kris, who set us up with a private driver to the condo. The condo is located off the main pedestrian area and we enjoyed many evenings watching the "action" from the rooftop. The rooftop is a vacation in itself. Very comfortable beds (we slept very well there) and enjoyed watching movies with the kids from the large DVD collection. There are many resorts in PDC but we loved having the options of exploring all the exciting eateries and shops right at our doorstep!

GREAT COMBINATION OF CONDO AMENITIES AND LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four (kids 9, 11) stayed at this condo for the first half of our vacation to the Yucatan. Short of being right on the beach, this condo's location can't be beat. Mamitas beach is the best in PDC and it's only 5 minutes away. The action and activity of fifth avenue with restaurants, shopping and bars is right outside the door. The pharmacy, medical clinic and large supermarket are all within walking distance. Initially we were concerned that the condo would be noisy at night being so close to the action. But, there was no problem getting to sleep, it wasn't noisy and the beds were so comfortable. The condo itself is beautifully decorated with a fantastic rooftop terrace. There is shade and sun on the terrace so we spent a lot of time upstairs. The kids loved the small pool to cool down and lounging in the hammocks. The circular stairwell to the terrace is cute but quite steep, so may not be suitable for the very young or old. The condo also has DVDs, Internet, and some beach gear available which was very convenient for us. We also found the information binder in the condo to be excellent telling us what we needed to know about the condo and the area in general. The owners were responsive with questions and the booking details as well.

While this condo is great overall, there are a couple of minor drawbacks to recognize. The first one is that there is no parking. Since we had a rental car, we had to find street parking. Luckily in Playa, we didn't need to drive much. When we did drive somewhere, we ended up getting a parking spot about a half block away from the condo. So, it turned out not to be a real problem, but a minor inconvenience. The other drawback is that the condo doesn't have a stove with an oven. Rather there are two burners and a toaster oven. You can easily make breakfast or a small meal. However, with a family of four, we did miss having a stove on occasion. Again, it wasn't a big problem for a six night stay.

At the end of the day, would I recommend this condo to a friend? Absolutely yes! Would I stay here again? In a heartbeat!

Owner's Response: Thanks for leaving your review! I just wanted to add quick note that we are replacing the separate stove and oven with a new larger combined stove/oven in April 2014. While many of our guests don't like to cook, we do realize some guests would like to spend more time in the kitchen and make meals for the family. We will be making this update in the next two weeks. Parking in Playa is often located under buildings due to limited space. However, we have our beautiful cenote under half of our building so we could not build a garage. Most guests find parking very close on the street. When asked, I usually advise our guests against renting a car. Everything is so very close that you can easily walk and if you do need a car for a day trip we have the American Car Rental shop just outside our building. I hope you come back and see us! We'd love to have you stay in our home again. Thanks, Kris

GOOD OPTION FOR PLAYA

  • 4 of 5
This is a very nice condo in a good location. Although not large, it is certainly spacious enough for 2 couples. The outdoor spaces offer you the extra space to get away on your own that you might desire when travelling with friends.
Pros:
-Kris was very good to deal with
-reasonably priced
-2 very spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds
-lovely rooftop deck that had a cool breeze in the morning (comfortable chairs)
-well supplied with everything you will need (kitchen, bed, bath etc)
-location to 5th Ave. could not be better - 1 block off 5th but with no noise from the street
We tried fabulous restaurants every day just minutes away from the condo. Loved that!
-great air conditioning (with additional fans)
-local manager
Cons:
-biggest disappointment was location to ocean. Description on VRBO indicated 2-3 min. walk to the beach and one of the pictures showed a fairly close view of the ocean (zoom lens ??)With that information I assumed we would be on the ocean side of 5th Ave. The actual walk is at least 10 min. and there are really no ocean views (buildings block any view that might have once been )
-the dining deck off the living room is very, very close to the deck on the next building so if someone is out next door you can not avoid each other's conversations. The close proximity prevented us from using that deck our entire stay because our neighbours used theirs all the time.
Overall, this would be a good choice for 2-4 adults with no mobility issues. There are stairs, bar stools at the dining table and the LR & DR are sunken so there is a step that runs across the condo that might challenge some folks.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. It's always great to have reviews for our future guests to peruse. I am somewhat surprised at the comment about the walk to the beach. It is 2 blocks at best and some would call it 1 and a half. We've walked it many many many times and it never takes more than 2-3 minutes as the beach is at the end of our road. As you can see by many of the other reviews most of our guests comment about how close the beach is and how easy it is to get to. I hope you do not feel mislead about the "ocean view" either. We clearly state we are not on the ocean but as you can see from the picture on our site you can definitely see the ocean from our rooftop just past the Aldea Thai building. It is what it is and I hope we did not try to oversell something as far as being able to actually see the ocean...which you can do from our rooftop. I'm surprised again about the closeness of the balcony off of the living room. Again, reading reviews from many of our past guests you can see that is a space that most all of our guests really enjoy and comment about. If you don't want to see people there is always the lovely rooftop or the other balcony off of the master bedroom to enjoy. That's what I think is best about Casa Parasio...no matter what your personal preferences are...you can find the right spot and the right environment in our home. Thank you again for staying with us!

BEAUTIFUL CONDO IN PRIME LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This condo was a great find for a great price. The location is perfect for those who like to experience downtown Playa, it is in walking distance to everything and the condo is extremely clean and well maintained. Beyond the condo itself, Kris was amazing to deal with. He was very responsive and gave lots of great recommendations and answered any questions we had. It is a great to be able to feel confident in the people you are renting from. The condo was everything described, but the pictures do not even do it justice. The rooftop terrace was amazing. Great place to have coffee in the morning, or drinks in the evening! One day we even spent the day up there, relaxing in the cooling pool and naps on the hammock. We couldn't ask for more! We will definitely be back and I cannot WAIT!!
