Casa Los Charcos, Spanish for “House of Ponds,” is a unique, secluded hideaway in the Playa Del Carmen area of the Mayan Riviera. With its large stretch of pristine white sand beach and lushly landscaped gardens, this exceptional residence captures the essence of the ocean and the tropics at its best while offering the highest standards in accommodations and service. Casa Los Charcos provides the ideal sun-filled setting for discriminating travelers and large families or groups.
The magnificent heated swimming pool reaches up to seven feet deep and includes a hammock, diving board and Jacuzzi-style seating area for six with water massage. The pool contains a 5.5 horsepower Swim-Jet system that produces a current so you can exercise on a veritable “water treadmill.” Or unwind in the rooftop Jacuzzi while soaking in the stellar views. With a gas grill and a lovely outdoor dining area, the alfresco experience rises to a crescendo. Whether jumping on the trampoline or just lounging on the beach chairs, you will fall in love with the sounds of the ocean waves. Indoors, you will find a home theater with satellite TV and iPod dock, a Sonos central sound system, video games and access to a computer and Wi-Fi. Your reservation includes housekeeping and a child care service.
This three story home is richly decorated and includes a gorgeous dining and living room area and an impressive wood and steel aerial staircase leading to the upstairs bedrooms. The kitchen comes fully equipped with a center island breakfast bar. Throughout Casa Los Charcos, modern furnishings and bright finishes lend an airy grace to the ambience.
The five bedrooms at Casa Los Charcos welcome up to twelve guests, with a maximum of four children. All of the bedrooms include air conditioning, Direct TV and en-suite bathrooms—four of which have Jacuzzi tubs. Watch golden sunsets from the amazing master bedroom of your Mediterranean-style villa while listening to the exotic sounds of nature.
At Casa Los Charcos, you will be only minutes away from the famous night life of Quinta Avenida (Fifth Avenue). Nearby daytime activities include scuba diving, snorkeling, canoeing, biking, boating, sea kayaking, parasailing, jet skiing, fishing and golf. However, you spend your days in the Mayan Riviera, you will be happy to call this very private bijou villa home!

My friends and I spent a week at Casa Los Charcos celebrating my 40th birthday. I can't say enough positive things about the house.
House - Every room is extremely nice and suite-like with luxurious accommodations. Sonos throughout the house made the entire experience extremely fun. The bedrooms are very soundproof (we tested them). The fingerprint house access was convenient.
Pool - The pool area is perfect, with just the right amount of sun as well as shade. The water is heated to your preference and there is an abundance of towels and beach chairs. Wildlife makes you feel like you're in a jungle getaway with agoutis, iguanas and the occasional couti.
Location - It's a one block walk to the beach on the local side of town so it's never too crowded. The one downside is the walk into town.
Staff - Staff is amazing, chef Paco is amazing and the women said their massages were excellent. The building manager also brought me a cake for my birthday!
My family loved the house, everything was perfect upon arrival, the house staff were friendly and helpful. The house is simply amazing, from the apple tv in everyroom,the sound system that worked perfecly. We got a chef that was absolutely fantastic,i definetly recomend. We would go back to enjoy this wonderfull place many times.
The house is beautiful and a great location. Heidi with Luxury Retreats helped us tremendously, as did Ulla and the rest of the staff at Casa Los Charcos. We will definitely be back for a third time next year.
Our only hiccup of the trip was a brief dispute with the transportation company, Rutas Hispanicas, over their failure to pick up one of our guests--the transportation company blamed the issue on our guest, demanded payment for a ride that did not occur, and then threatened not to pick our group up for the return trip to the Cancun airport even though we had already paid in full for that trip. Heidi took care of the issue immediately when I contacted her--she was very helpful.
EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT!
THE HOUSE WAS BEAUTIFUL, WE REALLY ENJOYED OUR STAYED WITH YOU GUYS.
The villa was amazing. We booked it based on the experience we had the previous year and it was definitely up to standard. Diana and the on-site concierge were very helpful, very prompt in answering questions and handling problems. However, Grant was very slow in answering and handling situations. Several times i had to send him 3 or 4 email before i got a full response . The overall experience was not out-shined and i would gladly return.
This was our second stay at Casa Los Charcos, and we had a wonderful time. The villa is beautiful and Playa Del Carmen is lovely.
I must say.however, that for the second year in a row, we were disappointed by the property's on-site manager. Last year, she was generally unavailable. This year, when we arrived, her son was swimming in the pool and continued to run around the house after our arrival. This included his using the bathroom and leaving a wet towel out before leaving. She also explained that although she was supposed to has a updated itinerary for us, her printer was broken. Very unprofessional and not a Luxury experience.
