We are located at the very northern edge of Playacar Phase 2, a secure, elegant gated community on the south end of Playa del Carmen. You are an easy walking distance to everything in Playa - unlike many other condos in Playacar that are located much further away on the other side of the golf course. Just a 5 minute walk to the main guard gate and another 3 minutes to the Cozumel Ferry. We are also an easy walk to the main bus terminal in Playa, which can be used for airport transportation or tours to nearby Tulum, Akumal, Cancun, etc. We have never needed a car with all this great transportation and activities close by.
We know you’ll enjoy your time out on the balcony with the soothing pool and golf course view of the 13th fairway - the 'signature hole' of this amazing golf course! While there you can check your emails and upload vacation pictures for the folks back home with our Free WiFi. The large tree to the side of our balcony does a great job of keeping it cool and shady.
The spacious condo is laid out more like a house than a typical condo, which is extra nice if you are traveling with two couples or a kids. There is plenty of space to spread out on our leather couch and club chairs to relax with family and friends. Or you might take your break from the sun to enjoy a movie on one of the Flat Screen TVs from the Satellite or DVD Player. You will love the large, open floor plan and the kitchen with stainless appliances and loads of beautiful granite counter space. Other amenities include dining room seating for 6, marble floors throughout, fast-cooling A/C mini-splits and ceiling fans in every room.
Sleeping arrangements include a master bedroom with a comfortable King Size Bed, and an oversized whirlpool tub with shower in the modern ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom holds a full size bed plus a twin bed, and has its ensuite access to the second bath with a large glass & marble tile shower. There is also a queen size air mattress available for extra sleeping. Both bedrooms have reading lamps and side tables for storage. Sliding doors in each bedroom open out to small balconies that let in plenty of light and overlook the picturesque street. They also help pull cool breezes through the condo when you want the outside feel.
Two sets of sliding glass doors open up from the den and dining area to a wide balcony furnished with new teak furniture - two lounge chairs and a breakfast table & chairs are ready for you to enjoy. You will have beautiful tropical birds to enjoy during your stay. You will also enjoy visits from the agouti in the garden, as well as the coatimundi which may even climb the tree near the balcony to greet you!
We invite you to read the comments from our previous guests. We strive to provide each guest with a memorable vacation, and I think our reviews will testify to those efforts. We truly love sharing our home with others.
You will be well cared for in our home. Our managers are available 24/7 to solve any problem, and we offer a Free Concierge Service for our guests - a professional and friendly concierge is available to meet with you and make restaurant recommendations, book personal tours and activities, or simply give you advice for your perfect vacation. Much more trustworthy and better than relying on the offers on the street or the beach! Our renters tell us this made a real difference for them. We also provide a notebook of suggestions and information about the area, as well as an email version that will help you prepare for your trip. And we are available by phone as well to answer all your questions and guide you to make the most of the time you have to enjoy.
We know you will love staying at our condo as much as we do! This is the perfect place for whatever your heart desires in a vacation from total relaxation to all-out adventure sports and recreation. Nearby you will find golfing, fishing, snorkeling and diving, Mayan ruins, parasailing, and swimming with the dolphins, just to name a few. One of our favorite things to do is take the short walk (7-8 min) down the path with the small ruins to the closest beach. There are plenty of large trees for shade a bit back from the water, or you can take the beach umbrellas and be at the waters' edge. The sling backpacks provided make taking along 4 beach chairs and the umbrellas a breeze. Add the portable cooler, and a book or two, and you are set for a relaxing day!
Our renters receive a guide from us detailing transportation details and our favorite tips and activities collected from our previous visits. And we would be happy to talk with you and give you any advice or answer any questions that you might have to help make this the trip you will always remember!

About Laurie Ritchel, Owner
We have been traveling to Mexico for more than ten years and have fallen in love with the culture and the people we have met on our travels. It was a dream of ours to own our piece of paradise, and in October of 2008 we finally did it! It's great to be within walking distance of beaches, restaurants and shopping, yet located in the peaceful gated community of Playcar. We love sharing it with others! Laurie and Mark, Beaumont, Texas
Laurie Ritchel, Owner purchased this condo in 2008
Why Laurie Ritchel, Owner chose Playa del Carmen
Once we decided on Playa del Carmen for our vacation home, we wanted a place that was an easy walk to everything we love - 5th Avenue restaurants, beaches, shopping, bus station for tours, etc. Casa de Sueno is uniquely situated on the most northern edge of the Playacar neighborhood, which means that all of the fun activities of 5th Avenue are within an easy walking distance, yet we still enjoy the peacefulness and safety of our gated community. There were many nice properties for us to choose from, but location was key to us. We couldn't be happier with our home.
What makes this condo unique
Unlike many condo vacation rentals in the area, the layout of ours is quite unique. Many condos are long and narrow, to maximize the number of units with a small balcony view. We enjoy a wide, spacious living area with a large living/kitchen/dining area open to the double size balcony. Two couples or a family staying with us will never feel like you are living on top of each other. We visit our home often, and provide for our guests the same amenities that we enjoy while we are there - so no need to pack the hairdryer, pool floats or beach towels. We love sharing our new home and Playa del Carmen with others and want you to have the vacation you've dreamed of!
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time in Playa and your condo was perfect. Patricia and I spent the last 15 minutes trying to figure out some useful feedback that we could give you. Apart from the Internet service reliability, we could not think of anything else. In fact, we felt that you had equipped the apartment better than what we would have thought of. And everything was so well organized. You seemed to have thought about a lot of minute details and set things up very well for potentially unfamiliar guests. The bikes were great as we're two of the three beach chairs (the third needs some maintenance).
And I cannot say enough positive things about Laura, Moskito, and Gaby!!! They were simply wonderful. Laura, we did go to El Pirata (twice!) Trattoria (twice as well) and will make it to Piola the next time we are there. Your recommendations were excellent for quality and for value.
So, thanks very much, y'all!!!
Note from Owner: The issue with spotty internet service is a new one, and we are working to fix that as it has never been an issue before in the five years we have owned the condo. We also are purchasing new beach chairs to replace the ones that are now a bit worn. Everything should be perfect for your next stay! (Jeyant is returning in August for a second visit!).
