Overview

Playa del Carmen Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Sleeps 12

Amid the warm Mexican Caribbean climate, spectacular natural beauty and stunning Mayan culture, Casa Whitley inspires relaxation, tranquility and a true retreat from everyday life. Located on the Riviera Maya, in the exclusive gated resort community of Playacar (40 minutes south of the Cancun airport), Casa Whitley is an exquisite hideaway for only the most discriminating guests. The sun-drenched ambiance is reflected through the simple yet elegant architecture of the Spanish Colonial design by architect Angel Eslea. Interiors were designed by the owner, renowned Connecticut interior decorator, Carol Whitley.

Double height ceilings, rough-sewn wood beams, skylights and custom Talavera tiles add to the home's unique style. A Mayan waterfall spills into the sparkling swimming pools reflecting a lush landscape of tropical plants and palms. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen awaits the amateur chef. The large living room has a 18-foot wrap around sofa, 2 large rattan arm chairs and antique coffee table. The center piece of the dining room is a massive 9-foot mahogany table and rattan arm chairs to encourage hours of dining pleasure. All the main rooms spill out onto the terra cotta tiled terrace and the pools beyond. The Casa is perfectly situated on the 4th hole of the beautiful and challenging Robert Von Hagge Golf Course. The Spa at Playacar Golf Club, within easy walking distance, offers luxurious and relaxing treatments.

Four bedrooms and a master suite sleep a total of 12 guests. Four and a half bathrooms, some with double sinks, a sky-lit tub and showers, are each enhanced with hand-made blue and white tiles. Each upstairs bedroom has its own terrace. The Casa is fully air conditioned with individual room controls.

Our concierge, Maria, will check on you daily. She will arrange transportation, private chef service, reservations for spa, restaurant, golf and sightseeing. Every detail to make your vacation truly memorable.

Only a short walk away (less than a mile) is the beach, ferry boat to Cozumel and Playa's famed 'La Quinta' (5th Ave). The pedestrian street is lined with many shops and international cafes. La Quinta comes alive at night with strolling musicians and lively international conversations. But the best of Playa is the miles of silky white beaches kissed by the sparkling turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean.

The friendly atmosphere of Casa Whitley, its romantic nights, myriad of daytime activities and its location in the heart of the Mexican Riviera Maya, make it the perfect place to spend your vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again, our stay at Casa Whitley was fantastic.  As previously, Maria kept on top of everything, responded to all our requests and made everything run smoothly and effectively.  Arturo doubled as driver and thoroughly knowledgeable guide, not only getting us safely to every location but helping us with entry requirements and patiently waiting while we enjoyed every manner of vacation activity.  And, of course, we can't say enough about Blanca, a superb chef who accommodated all our requests...everything was absolutely delicious.  I once again found myself trying to figure out how we might get her through customs and immigration on our return to the States!  Casa Whitley itself was just as we remembered it from our previous visit...a beautiful home in a location that truly is close to paradise!  We all thank you for allowing us to create some wonderful family memories by sharing Casa Whitley with us!

          Our warmest regards and we look forward to another visit at, hopefully in the not too distant future.

Amazing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the week at Casa Whitley with my best friends celebrating my 40th birthday. The house is beautifully decorated and was perfect for us! Great neighborhood, easy access to beach and Playa. The concierge and chef services were brilliant. Huge recommendation from me as well as my friends. Will be back!
