About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

'Casa Vela' is a modern luxury, three bedroom villa and has a great location within the exclusive Playacar gated community. Located to the north of Playacar, close to the town entrance to Playa del Carmen. The beautiful Caribbean beaches are just a few minutes walk through a small park past some small Mayan ruins. It is a similar distance to the famous 5th Avenue restaurants and shops via Paseo del Carmen. The famous Playacar aviary is 2 - 3 minutes walk away and the Robert van Hagg designed golf course is just across the street. Reef Beach club is also nearby.

Stylish, modern Italian and Mexican furnishings suit the house style. With large rooms and high ceilings, the villa feels very spacious. Ceiling fans and air conditioning throughout.

Step straight from the lounge to the large patio and into the large, shared, swimming pool. The spacious patio is well furnished with sunloungers, dining furniture and a gas grill - ideal for dining by the pool.

One bedroom is downstairs with direct access to the pool, with two large bedrooms upstairs. The master bedroom has its own jacuzzi as well as private terrace where you can relax in your hammock, overlooking the pool.

This privately owned villa is maintained to a high standard and managed by professional management agents who are located very close to the villa. They will ensure that the villa is perfectly presented and will assist you with any activities that you may require during your vacation. They will meet and greet you shortly after your arrival at the villa and they can assist with anything from arranging tours, baby sitting services to cook in chefs. Airport transfer can also be arranged. There is a welcome book with detailed local information in the villa and a digital version will be sent to you before arrival to help you plan your vacation. A local cell phone will be provided for your convenience. Mid week maid service is included.

Wi-Fi Internet access is free of charge for guests.

With such a great location, a rental car is not necessary but having one will enable you to conveniently explore all the fabulous attractions nearby.

'Your house is well equipped and maintained and it is one of the best rentals we have ever had (we have been using vrbo for many years). The guys at (your property agents) do a very good job and are very quick to respond to the needs of your tenants'


' We had a great time and loved the villa...Your internet photos do not do the pool justice, it is much larger than it appears in the photos. We were very happy with the accommodations'

About David Roberts

We live in the U.K. but are trying to spend as much time as possible in Playa!

David Roberts purchased this villa in 2005

Why David Roberts chose Quintana Roo

We fell in love with the cosmopolitan atmosphere of Playa, with its beautiful Caribbean beaches and friendly laid back lifestyle. We chose Casa Vela because it is a large modern house, within easy walking distance of the town and beach, and has such a great pool.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Vela has a great location, just a short walk to the beach or town and everything that Playa has to offer. We love sitting on the patio, just steps from the large swimming pool, or going for a late afternoon walk around Playacar, or to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Vacances inoubliables!

Nous sommes retournées à la Casa Vela en mars dernier et encore une fois, nous avons adoré l’endroit. Nous avons retrouvé la même qualité d’hébergement, la même facilité de transiger avec David et Louise et le même accueil chaleureux et attentionné de la part d’Ulla. L’endroit est vraiment idéal pour se reposer, prendre du soleil, se baigner et faire de longues promenades sur la plage.

La villa est propre, confortable et bien équipée, ce qui fait en sorte qu’on a le goût d’y revenir. En ce qui nous concerne, aucune formule tout inclus en hôtel ne peut rivaliser avec cet endroit.

Nous avons eu de merveilleuses vacances et nous espérons grandement avoir la possibilité de répéter l’expérience l’an prochain.

Great and spacious condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in Casa Vela in Playacar, and we enjoyed it very much. We were a family of six, including 4 teenagers, and it was a great advantage that there were three large bedrooms with their own bathroom. The condo was very practical, and it was easy to make everything function from day one. The communication with David, the owner, went very smoothly and we got feedback to our questions immediately by mail both prior to arrival and during the stay. Excellent information in the folder. The condo had a very good location as it was not long to walk to the beach nor to the centre of Playa del Carmen. Peaceful and quiet at night. I can recommend this condo to everyone.

Great condo in the perfect location for an affordable price, really all you need is there!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks in this condo with my parents, my husband our 2 yrs old son and a family friend. The condo is perfect for families and/or small groups. the 3 bedrooms are perfect each with their own bathroom, kitchen has all you need and the living space is cozy and spacious. We all enjoyed the pool which is literally right there as you walk out the back patio door. Neighbors were great and fun to have some other people around without being too many (like in a hotel or all inclusive).

The location is great as you are a 5 min walk to la Quinta and 15min walk to grocery store and access to the Reef Club was a nice bonus, 15-20min walk away and one of the nicest beaches in Playa. Little note, weekends are busy and more than likely not easy to get in unless you get there before 9:30am (we learned this the hard way!! after 2 unsuccessful attempts!).

Dave and his wife were very nice and easy to deal with which is also very nice when booking a place and Angela, the property manager as well! Everything was as it was said.

Recommend this place for sure when going to Playa! Thank you :)

Owner's Response: Hi Julie, Thank you for your feedback - it was great having you at Casa Vela and to know that you had a good vacation. Yes, the Reef Club do vary their admission policies especially at busy times, I guess to avoid overcrowding. The beach that is closer to the house is always free access. We look forward to welcoming you back to Casa Vela sometime soon! Dave

Stay At Casa Vela

  • 5 of 5

We were in Playa Del Carmen, it was our first time near Cancun and were nervous about the home. We were wrong. Everything was perfect. The Roberts family had a great, comfortable and beautiful home, with all the amenities of home. Prior to arrival, they had provided all information as to the home and directions with plenty of information about the city we chose to stay in. This helped us and our family tremendously. They also had an on call lady, Angelina who was always available when we called for assistance or information. We will definitely be recommending this location to everyone! Thank you again Mr. and Mrs. Roberts

Great Time, Great Place, Great Deal!

  • 5 of 5

This is probably my 6th time in Playa and I can say with confidence that Casa Vela was the perfect place. 3bed 3bath arrangement with AC in every room and easy pool access steps from back door really hit home for a couple families with kiddos. Lots of nice touches like a local cell to use etc.

Next time in Playa I hope to be able to book Casa Vela again.

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family recently stayed at Casa Vela. The photos does not describe enough how accommodating this house is. It is clean, spacious, and very very comfortable. The open space of the living room/ dinning room it is very convenient to have quality time with the family. Also, the pool in the back patio of the house made our stay very convenient. We highly recommend Casa Vela for when you visit Playa Del Carmen.
