BEAUTIFUL VACATION HOME NESTLED NEXT TO MAYAN RUINS

Playa del Carmen Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 6 Baths (Sleeps 8)

Nestled in the jungle between Mayan Ruins and the Caribbean Sea in Playa del Carmen Mexico lies Casa Kopfmann.

Playa del Carmen is an international community located along the Mayan Riviera. Casa Kopfmann is conveniently located a block from the beach in a private secure gated community, Playacar.

The house has been beautifully designed with four bedrooms, all with private baths. The first floor of the house is perfect for entertaining/ vacationing. Persian doors along the entire front of the house open onto the pool deck and patio. A fully equipped kitchen that is open to the dining room and living room make this level a perfect place to enjoy time with family or friends. Nestled privately in the back of the house, with doors that open to the jungle, lies the media room.

Further Details: The second floor has 3 bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have private balconies and bathrooms.

The master suite is located on the third floor. Balcony doors open to the spectacular views of the ocean. The sitting room with adjoining balcony is privately hidden by the treetops of the jungle.

The rooftop is one of the most distinguishing features of the house. With views of Cozumel, a jacuzzi, hammocks and lounge chairs you can spend days sunbathing and nights in the jacuzzi under the stars.

David and Lynn have enjoyed vacationing in Playa del Carmen since the mid 80's. Because they enjoy this area of Mexico so much they decided to build their vacation home there in 2001. They enjoy spending time in Playa throughout all seasons of the year.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We are so glad we got to experience Playa del Carmen and Casa Kopfmann! What a delightful time. Your home is lovely and was perfect for our girls week. I have to say the location of your casa is awesome, so close to the best part of the beach and all the Playa activity. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. Love the roof top view, the space, art (especially David's photos) and all the amenities of your home. We appreciate how helpful Esperanza, Alex and Luci are. It made our stay so enjoyable to have their advice and expertise on the area. Alex's tour of Alux's cave was wonderful! As always vacations go by way to quickly and the reality of 30 degree weather is hard to accept! I hope to return to Casa Kopfmann in the future!!

Christmas on the Beach!

  • 5 of 5
We had the true pleasure of spending Christmas week 2013 at Casa Kopfmann. I did a lot of research upfront comparing various properties and hotel options before picking this property – and now after having been there and seeing the wide variety of options, remain extremely pleased with our choice. Everything we had read about the property in its description and reviews was spot-on. Casa Kopfmann is a large, spacious, tastefully decorated four-story single-family home located in a quiet, well-established and guarded subdivision. It is ideally situated for families - only a couple short blocks from the beach, and within easy walking distance to the main plaza in town, the ferry terminal to Cozumel, and the public bus terminal that provides transportation to/from the Cancun International Airport. Our party of seven consisted of two adults in their 50s and five adults in their 20s. The layout of the house, with its four separate bedrooms each with their own bathroom, worked out great for us. There was more than enough room for us all to spread out into our own spaces when we wanted that. For us, the selling point was the Jacuzzi on the roof (and proximity to the beach). We spent many evenings up there enjoying the hot tub under the stars listening to the jungle sounds around us. We also captured several awesome sunrises from there. The owner employs a local property manager who is very knowledgeable and available to provide groceries, arrange transportation, cater meals, and/or simply provide advice on things to do among other services. We had only some very minor maintenance issues come up during our stay, and the property manager addressed each of them very promptly – generally within an hour or two of being notified. The owner was very personable and professional. She answered all of my emails promptly, and verified that I had received various information she sent to me by mail. She provided us with a very detailed information sheet on the house, the local area, and recommendations for things to do once we had finalized the rental agreement. She put us in direct contact with the property manager so that we could work out “first day” meeting arrangements at the house. The owner also promptly refunded our security deposit upon completion of our stay. It was truly a fantastic vacation and memorable Christmas for us. I can't wait to go back!

Everything we needed and then some

  • 5 of 5
Eight of us stayed at Casa Kopfmann--and it had every amenity we could ask for. Each couple and our children had their own space if we wanted time to ourselves, but the house also offered a great place for all of us to be together. We took advantage of the beautiful views from the roof every morning and afternoon. The house is located a very short walk to a beautiful beach and to downtown Playa del Carmen. We felt very safe walking to both.

Esperanza checked on us every day to make sure we had everything we needed. She also helped us plan a few sight-seeing excursions.

We all left feeling very relaxed and already contemplating our return visit!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5
This is a huge gorgeous house located one house away from the Archaeological Park and a very short walk to 5th. Individual A/C in rooms all worked great.

With 8 people in our group we really appreciated the 2 extra bathrooms on the main floor. The hot tub on the roof is large and the view spectacular although it was quite a climb up 4 levels. Bring your cooler to the roof because you won't want to be making a lot of trips to the fridge in the kitchen!

This property is close to the Aviario which has Flamingos, Toucans, Scarlet Macaws, smaller green parrots that say "Hola!" and many other birds you get to see close up in a jungle setting. Most of it is open to wild birds and there is a small net enclosed section. To get there - cross the small wooden stile into the Archaeological Park, go left through the park and across the road, go left on the sidewallk and in a minute or two you are at the Aviario. If you are there during feeding, large flocks of egrets cause quite a spectacle and all the birds make an amazing jungle racket.

We love PDC because it is so clean and safe. I am a 50 something female and like to do some things by myself (like visit the Aviario) and I have never felt threatened. The beach is longer than you can walk - just remember to bring drinking water with you. 5th Ave has more shops and restaurants than you can visit in a week or two. Xcaret is a must see. It has native birds and animals such as Jaguars and replicas of Mayan village life. The evening show is amazing. It gives the history of the Mayan people including a game where they kick a flaming ball with feet. Get the meal with the show and you will have great seats and gourmet food - delicious! Xel-Ha is a fun place to snorkel and float on tubes down a river. They also have a small zip-line and and lots of walking paths. The Mayan ruins at Tulum are breathtakingly beautiful. Another fun thing is a day trip to Cozumel. We like to hire a taxi for a tour of the island stopping for drinks here and there. If you visit during Carnival the parades are really fun on both Cozumel and Playa Del Carmen. Yal Ku is a very easy cheap place to Snorkel about 20 minutes south of PDC.

Some of our group complained about being woke up by loud bird calls in the morning but I thought the sounds made it more of a tropical jungle experience. We had a couple of problems with the hot tub and the maintenance people came right away to fix it. The manager is great!

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
I would highly recommend this home, it was wonderful! It's a great location to Playa Del Carmen, just 2 blocks to the beach, and on a dead-end street next to the ruins. The home is very clean, has great views from the rooftop, 2 pools, and all the amenities you need for a beach vacation!
We enjoyed a delicious dinner and everyday-- chips, guacamole and salsa (all for a fee) provided by Esperanza, house manager. The owners were great to work with--in answering all our questions and providing good info about the town, restaurants, things to do.
Our family of 6 adults all agreed this was better than staying at a resort and was the best vacation-- we can't wait to go back!

Amazing Home!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Casa Kopfmann numerous times. The house is amazing. Very close to the beach and to 5th Avenue. The owners have thought of every detail to make the stay perfect! Our favorite place to hang out is on the roof top terrace!

The best vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Kopfmann in Playa del Carmen is the perfect rental for a fantastic Carribean vacation! Just steps from the beach, and a brief walk to downtown, it has everything a couple up to a large family could want! We loved the fact we could cook there, relax there, and spend time in either of the water features there (who doesn't want to sit in a rooftop hot tub overlooking the sea?); but yet be close to the action of town when we desired. All the amenities offered made staying there a breeze. We're already planning our next trip!
