Review #10734937 “Fabulous! Amazing! Tranquil! Beautiful!!!”
My husband and I came here to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary. We were welcomed by Damien who is the care taker. We rented the penthouse which I recommend. Upon climbing the steps we entered this fabulous home with 360 degree view of the very turquoise Caribbean. The sound of the ocean immediately washed away any stress that you could possibly have. Damien showed us around and told us to ask for him if we needed anything. The penthouse has 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Under the penthouse our 2 apartments. My husband and I had the entire place to ourselves for the entire week we were there. We just loved
We rented a car at the airport so we could get around on our own. Grocery shopping was very simple. Went to Playa Del Carmen. I believe the name of the store was The Cherdraui. They sell everything like a super Walmart including alcohol. We did all our own cooking. The house had everything you needed to do this. There is no oven but, there is a toaster oven and a charcoal grill on the property. We were very content to stay in the home with the beautiful view and eat our meals out on the balcony. You cannot ask for a better view.
I enjoyed reading out by the pool and taking dips in the pool or ocean. Finished 3 books. My husband used the kayak with his new GoPro and also snorkeled. The beach was nice with fair amount of people walking.
There is a washing machine so, don't bring a lot of clothing. There is a stand to hang your wash on. No dryer. Clothes dried overnight due to the nice breeze blowing.
Damien would ask you if you wanted him to clean or not. He also took the trash. He changed our bedding 3 times. Didn't expect that. The place was very clean. We kept the doors closed due to mosquitoes. Really did not need the air conditioning with the windows open so we could enjoy the Caribbean air. Best to keep the windows closed though if you have the lights on because the little mosquitoes seemed to like the lights. Can't be helped, this is life in the tropics.
All the pictures you see on the website are very accurate. Including the 2 apartments which I also got to see.
Thank you Christina for having such a beautiful home in a beautiful spot. We went back to Cancun for our last night before traveling home and I soooo wanted to be back at Playa Del Secreto. If you want to get away and be away from crazy nightclubs, bars and people selling you things, stay here!!
My family and I stayed at this amazing house in January 2009. The pictures truly do not do it justice. The view is absolutely amazing!! It is the perfect place if you are looking to relax and avoid the high traffic tourist areas that crowd some of Mexico's beaches. It is a 5 minute drive into Puerto Morelos which is a small fishing town just north of the house. Playa del Carmen is a short drive south from the house as well. The beach where the house is located is very private and secluded. If you are looking for a place with an amazing view and a quiet location, this is definitely your place!
When you wake up in the morning and walk into the living room you feel like you are sitting on top of the ocean...it's amazing! The view will take your breathe away...it's simply spectacular! At the end of the day you get to fall asleep listening to the waves of the ocean...yes you are that close!
We had the upper unit, "the penthouse". Our group was two couples and my 2 grown children. The house was very spacious. Three bathrooms was great for our group of six. Our only complaint about the bathrooms would be the hot water. We complained to Alberto and were told that we needed to let the water run and that it would eventually get hot...this is true...but it takes anywhere between 5-10 minutes for it to get warm/hot. Never once were we able to turn on the water and have it be hot.
The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and pots and pans. When we arrived we had two refrigerators...which was great because we used one for drinks only. Two days later...the one for drinks was removed because it was leaking into the downstairs unit. Since we were staying there and cooking our meals the second fridge was needed. Once they took it they never brought it back. The blender leaks a black liquid out the bottom every time you use it. The bottled water cooler that they provide was awesome!
The beach is beautiful and very private! White sands and not a lot of rocks. We were able to walk into the ocean bare footed...water shoes weren't needed. You'd see maybe 10 people a day walk by. The week of our stay there the was a large amount of seaweed on the shore that you had to walk thru to get to the beach. After we were there for a couple of days...Alberto had his crew come and bury a large amount of it so that you could walk to the water without walking over the seaweed. Alberto did say that normally there is not a problem with seaweed. Even with the seaweed there...the beach was still amazing!
Alberto lives in a small house behind the property. He was very helpful! We did not rent a car. So he called cabs for us as well as ordered our pizza on our first night. Very nice man!
Overall our stay was awesome! The few minor items of concern did not ruin our vacation...just wanted to give an honest feedback of our experience. The photos they have listed are exactly what the house looks like! So if you are looking for a secluded beach front house...Casa Chanty is for you!
We stayed at this wonderland for 8 nights with a group of 8. The house was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked, with the usual minor problems of bad knives and such but that is to be expected and encountered in every vacation rental I've ever stayed at.
The view was spectacular, the place was very roomy. Having three bathrooms was a godsend! It was nice to have such a private beach with no vendors hasseling us and just a few other vacationers walking the beach. Every day the view and the ocean just took my breath away with how gorgeous it was.
Because there is SO much to do in the area, we didn't spend a ton of time at the house, but the time we did spend was blissful. We really enjoyed the ocean, the small swimming pool, the outside shower, the hammock and all of the places to lounge.
We felt very safe there and appreciated having the guards and the gate so that not just anyone could drive to the house. The house looked amazing at night lit up when we looked up from the beach. When we walked the beach looking at all of the other houses we by far preferred Casa Chanty. It is unique and tropical looking and just perfection really.
We rented cars which made it easy to get around and take day trips to Tulum, Coba, Xplor, Chitzen Itza, Isla Mujeres, and Cozumel. We ate dinner in Puerto Morales a few times and I totally recommend La Tarraza. It was a short five minute drive away.
I definitely plan to be back, hopefully for a longer trip so I can spend more time at this amazing house. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us.
I cannot believe what a slice of paradise this property is. The house is exactly what I was expecting and the views and courtyard were better than expected. The property is very well maintained and I saw someone there each day making sure everything was in order. I spent most of my time at the house in the courtyard (vs the beach itself) and I SO appreciated the care of the pool and the beach chairs, etc.
The house itself is so great. We had 8 people with us and not too many more towels than we had people so that was a bit of a challenge, but nothing hindering. The breeze swept through the main living areas and the back three bedrooms each had an A/C unit in it which was a wonderful relief from the daily heat and humidity.
The kitchen was also very well stocked (although the bottom of the blender oozed strange black liquid and the coffee pot was cracked so leaked as well. There are ants in the tropics but they weren't too bad here and we tried to keep things very tidy so as to avoid major infestation. Lots of pots and pans... knives weren't that sharp, but they were useable. LOTS of space for dried food and two refrigerators also made a huge difference for 8 people. Having the filtered tap water and the bottled drinking water was unexpected and absolutely wonderful!
I have only 2 criticisms, both of which don't hinder my giving this property a no-hesitation 5 star review. 1. It is advertised that we would have maid service 3x per week. We we there 8 nights and had someone come only one time. I wouldn't have expected someone to make our beds each time, but having the trash taken out, the bottled water replaced and the floors swept would have made a huge difference. 2. Check out time is listed as 11:00 am. We asked the manager on site if we could stay a little later and he said "no problem" but then told us at 10:20 am that we had to leave by 10:30am. Which we did not... we were not expecting to leave until 11 or 11:30 so we were not prepared for that change in what we had been told.
Overall, I loved this place. I LOVE the privacy and isolation of the beach and home. Dealing with the owner was always pleasant, informative and her replies were timely and helpful. While we didn't make use of the toys, I LOVE that there is a boogie board, floaties and two little kayaks you could use. If I ever make it to this part of Mexico again, I would definitely consider staying here again. :-)
We had an amazing vacation at Casa Chanty. The house was exactly what we had been looking for. It was private and away from all the other resorts and hustle and bustle of the city. We had 9 in our group in the penthouse and had friends staying the in the lower 2 bedroom unit, so 13 of us total. Our ages ranged from 4 years old to 77 years old. So, quite a group!!
By far the best feature of the house is the direct access to the beach. The beach was perfect with soft sand and gradual declining depth in the water. Most days we had wonderful surf to play in and boogie board. There was just a day or so at the end of our week where we were able to kayak on calmer waters. But we loved the waves and spent all day jumping around in them. The water temperature this time of the year was perfect as well, warm and cooling at the same time under the hot sun.
The penthouse has a wonderful layout. The kids loved having the loft to themselves while the adults were in the bedrooms downstairs. Its openness was ideal for hanging out and gathering for meals. The balcony facing the ocean was a meeting spot to relax and enjoy a coffee in the morning, or a cocktail after dinner. That breeze off of the water is heaven!!
The property is very well maintained and they seem to be working very hard to keep it that way. It was so comfortable, you felt at home right away.
Alberto was so wonderful while we were there! He has an apartment on site that he stays in and was available anytime we needed him. He helped us stock the house with food before we arrived as well as mid way thru our trip. He also helped us coordinate an outing (swimming with the dolphins), arrange taxi services, order pizzas and was there to restock anything we needed right away. THANK YOU so much, Alberto!! It was so nice to spend a little time with you and share your piece of heaven on the beach. :)
We went into town two times, once as a whole group of 13 and once as a group of 7. The price of a taxi round trip into Playa del Carmen for the big group was $160 USD. For the smaller group it was $110 USD round trip. It does sound like a lot, but we did not want to rent a car, and with that many people...it would have to have been a BIG one! We just budgeted that cost into our trip. Much easier.
I would absolutely recommend this house to my friends. Our kids are already asking when we can go back. If you are looking for a private space and want that direct beach access, this is a perfect option!
This house is amazing! It is right on the beach and the view is spectacular! Every morning you wake up to the turquoise blue waters of the ocean.
We had a group of 6 adults and we had a great time! The space is definitely large enough although the room layout is a little difficult for 3 couples. There are 3 bedrooms and a loft. Two of the three bedrooms have queen size beds and the other bedroom has two twin beds. If we had kids this might be great, but one of the couples had to keep all of their clothes and personal items in the twin bedroom and sleep upstairs in the loft (which has a queen bed). The loft is a cool space, but there is no privacy up there, so if they wanted to change or anything, everyone would be able to see them from the common area.
Pros: Private beach area. No huge resort feel. Very relaxing.
Big kitchen, we had all of our meals together.
Amazing view, the pictures do not do justice.
Plenty of bathrooms (there are three, all with showers).
Plenty of space. The layout and architecture is beautiful.
Secluded. Not a lot of people around.
Cons: Secluded. Don't for get anything while you are out shopping. The nearest town is 20 min drive away.
Hot water. There isn't really enough to go around (try to take showers an hour or two apart from each other).
Noise. The floors are very thin. We didn't have a problem hearing the people below us, but they had a BIG problem hearing us. Simple things like talking and walking make a lot of noise for the neighbors below.
Kitchen utensils are not very good.
All in all Casa Chanty is amazing! You will need a rental car for the week, but that also allows you to go to places tourists can't. If you stay at Casa Chanty you will not forget its beauty for a long time. Thank you Casa Chanty for a wonderful vacation!
perfectly located between Cancun 20 minutes , & Playa del Carmen 10 minutes drive ,and only 5 to puerto morelos , make of this location the perfect start of point for all kind of excursions.
Golf: The Mayan Rivera is the fast becoming a world renowned golf destination.
Casa Chanty as close as Five to Twenty-Five minutes from best golf courses.
