Overview

Playa del Carmen Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Alcazar De Playa, ' The Fortress,' is a custom-built home located in Playacar, a resort community adjacent to the Village of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Playacar development is 800 acres of elegant, all-inclusive hotels, condominiums, private residences, golf course, beaches, and Mayan Ruins. From Alcazar, it is a short 15 minute walk to the Village of Playa del Carmen.

You will find five bedrooms, each with its own balcony, bath, and kitchen. Each uniquely decorated. On the second-floor, the master bedroom has a spiral stair leading to a private rooftop patio with partial views of the ocean. Also on the second-floor is a common open air sitting/recreation area with a palapa roof and ceiling fan where everyone can gather. The entire house is air conditioned.

Downstairs you will find the kitchen, dining room, and living room furnished with antique hacienda furniture as well as the foyer which has a library and television set. The large courtyard patio, which can be accessed from either the foyer or the dining room, provides privacy amidst lush tropical landscaping.

From here one can enjoy the adjacent swimming pool or the tennis court within 20 yards of the house. It's only a three minute walk to the beach or a three wood shot to the golf course. 'Alcazar' is truly an elegant and spectacular villa.

Our property manager can address all of your needs including transportation, meals, shopping, sports activities and tourist information.

About Bernard Stover

MY wife and I are in our mid 60's and reside in Traverse City, MI. She is a retired special ed teacher and I am actively involved in the oil and gas exploration business

Why Bernard Stover chose Playa del Carmen

We chose Playa Del Carmen for four reasons

1. Short travel time from the US

2. Unique Mayan culture

3. Diving in Cozumel

4. Terrific ambiance of Playa Del Carmen

What makes this villa unique

Our home provides several private outdoor areas for those times when privacy is desired. the unique design and layout provides access to all of the bedrooms without having to go through central areas. The patio/courtyard with its talavera fountain has complete privacy from neighboring villas.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Perfect Stay”



5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday for a stay in July 2014 NEW







This is possibly the best choice for a vacation stay in the Mayan Riviera when traveling with friends. Bernie is wonderful as is his neighbor and friend Victor.

Casa Alcazar's property manager Ulla Meibohm is second to none. She helped us with all the arrangements. There were snacks and drinks

Wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Alcazar for a week in February 2015 to celebrate my father's 75th birthday and my stepdaughter's 25th birthday. We ranged in age from 11 to 75, and the home was absolutely perfect for our group of 8. We loved the communal spaces! The outdoor patio and garden, the dining room and kitchen, the open air lounge between the upstairs rooms, and to the bird's nest balcony were such wonderful gathering spots for all of us. The uppermost balcony is probably not suited for very young children or elderly, but was fine for our group. The pool is only a few steps away, the tennis courts and beach only about a 5 minute walk. The beach is quieter than the surrounding resorts areas and we did not feel a need to use the adjacent resort at all. The owner was beyond gracious in managing a scheduling challenge prior to our arrival and went above and beyond to help us. Ulla was a perfect host, and not only helped make our stay more comfortable but helped us pick perfect experiences for our family. A highlight was a gourmet meal prepared out the house by Chef Paco that featured regional cuisine and made for a perfect celebratory dinner. We had no trouble during our stay but the couple of times we needed to reach Ulla she was immediately responsive. We would highly recommend and so grateful that we enjoyed such a memorable family experience!

Our recent stay at your home in Playa del Carmen was very accomodating for our group of 8. The home was spacious, clean and well liked by our group. From Rudy, our shuttle driver to Ulla the manager and our maid service, it was a well worth vacation get-a-way. The home is located in a great location, close to walking into Playa and a very safe feeling enviroment. Our late night arrival was greeted by Ulla with snacks and drinks, which were greatly appreciated. This is a vacation spot that we would definitely travel back to. Thanks for your gracious hospitality Bernie.

Two weeks in paradise.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a magnificent. The layout of the house is very creative, and the patio is an open yet intimate area to dine or just sit and socialize outside. Although it is not beach front, the beaches, which are magnificent, are near enough to access with ease. We did go to the beach a lot, but we also used the pool. When you used the pool it made you feel as though you were in a secluded pond in the middle of the jungle. Town was not far away--just far enough that we could bask in peace and tranquility all day long. We had a great time, the only down side was the we could not stay a third week. It was paradise--I kept looking for Adam & Eve.

Thank you, Mike and Judy

my group of 10 found Casa Alcazar to be everything we hoped it would be and more. From the transportation to the private chef to the home cooked meals, this was a great place for a home base in Playa Del Carmen. Ulla was a fantastic hostess and took care of any needs our group requested. we had some golfers in the group and the Hard Rock Golf Course was a 3 wood away and with the owners connections, we were able to play at an all inclusive golf course for $60 a day.What an added bonus! The reef club was next door and the main town was only a 15 minute walk down the beach. We had a small wedding reception with a private chef (Paco) that was as good as being prepared at a 5 star restaurant. I would recommend this property to any type group except maybe groups with small children because of stairs and balconies. We felt safe and secure

A Private Haven

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was our third trip to the same lovely property. We find Casa Alcazar to be a wonderfully relaxing retreat near to the hustle and bustle of Playa Del Carmen. The furnishings are authentically beautiful, especially the antique grand dining room table. Each bedroom is decorated in a different Mexican style, complete with balcony. Ulla, the manager, had the house stocked with groceries and beverages of our choosing upon our arrival and she made sure to stay in touch for the entire of our vacation. Alma and her daughter, Mercedes, kept the villa neat and clean and were more than willing to create Mexican dishes for our "adult beverage time" on the lovely patio. Her guacamole and salsa were two favorites for our socials every late afternoon. The pool, just steps away, is blue and clear and private, as it is shared by the few houses that surround the lush landscape. However, it is very quiet and serene there and we basically had the area to ourselves, except, of course, for the two iguanas that we named Fred and George. There were 10 of us sharing the villa and its spaciousness and variety of sitting areas never let us feel crowded. We enjoyed the sound of the fountain on the stone patio, the attached laundry facilities, and the proximity to Playa del Carmen, as we fixed breakfast and lunch at the villa, but loved to go into town for dinner at first one, then another of the various restaurants. We made good use of the upstairs table and chairs for our nightly glasses of wine as we sat there by candlelight under an amazing peaked thatched roof. Every room had an air conditioner and ceiling fans and lovely doors that opened to balconies for more air flow if needed. Ulla was also kind enough to arrange transport to and from the airport and had the same exceptionally polite and friendly driver, Rudy, take us to Tulum and Akumal, two destinations that should definitely be on anyone's "to do" list. A dinner at ALUX, a former cave is a delightful and delicious candlelit experience that is not to be missed. Also, have the coconut shrimp at Karen's in Playa and anything on the menu at the Italian restaurant Ambasciata, while enjoying the hanging vines and star speckled night sky. We are home now, with wonderful memories and thoughts of our fourth trip to Casa Alcazar somewhere in the future.
