Overview

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. Walk to the beautiful Caribbean beaches which are just a few minutes walk through a small park past some small Mayan ruins. It is also a short walk 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.

Casa Vela has a great location within Playacar - it is close to the town entrance, so everything is so convenient.

The open plan lounge leads to the large patio which is just steps to the spectacular swimming pool. The spacious patio is well furnished with sunloungers, dining furniture and a high quality Webber gas grill - ideal for dining by the pool, maybe watching others in your group enjoying the pool.

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.

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. 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. There is parking on the drive.

Included in this listing with the photos is a video which helps show the villa and immediate location.

' 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 Playa del Carmen

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. Few houses within Playacar enjoy such a convenient location.

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. There are some great local restaurants a few minutes walk from the house and even small convenience store is just 5 minutes walk.

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.

Location was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The size of the house was just right. It allowed our family if 7 to spend 11 days with each other without coming to blows!

We loved having the pool right outside our door (which was much bigger than it looks in the photos) it was so nice nice not to have to trek to another location whenever the kids wanted to swim. The walk into town was very easy (take a shortcut through the outdoor mall and it will land you right in the middle of all the shopping action!)

For an amazing day trip-book with absolute adventure, they will pick you up at the front door!

For shopping, forget Walmart it was very crowded-- Our favorite was Chedraui or Mega (signs for the aisles are in Spanish and English)

Our only complaint is that It would have been nice to have a card to get in and out of Playacar, we had to explain every time who we were luckily we speak Spanish which made it a lot easier.

Owner's Response: Hi Sheelagh, Thank you very much for your kind comments. It is great to know that you had such a great time in Casa Vela and that you enjoyed the pool and the location worked well for you. The security people at the Playacar gates do check where guests with rental cars are staying - I should have suggested that you take the Playacar card when driving. I will mention this in future to make it easier for guests with a car. We very much hope to welcome you back sometime soon! Kind regards David

A great Condo for a splendid vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent two glorious weeks in this great condo. David, the owner was very colaborative since the begining. He provided all information as to the home and directions with plenty of information about the city. This helped us and our family tremendously. The administrator, Angela, solved any concern that we had too. The condo is big, exactly as the posted photos, with all amenities, a/c in every room, a comfortable kitchen, laundry room, etc. It´s all very clean and very well maintained. The bedrooms are big. We stayed 8 people without any problem. The open space of the living room/ dinning room it is very convenient to have quality time with the family. It has a large swimming pool with easy access. I will never forgot those nights with barbacue in the background. It´s close to the beach and downtown, in a closed and very safe neighborhood. It´s really a very nice place and i can´t wait to return. I strongly recommend it. If you want to have a great vacation, don´t doubt it and go to casa vela!!!. Thank You David and Angela

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

Casa Vela is within Playacar - a large exclusive gated community with its own beach, golf course, restaurant, villas and hotels. Our house is close to the town entrance, so it is a short walk to Playa del Carmen's 5th Avenue with hundreds of restaurants, shops, bars and also the town beach.

Just 3 - 4 miles south of Playacar is the famous theme park Xcaret and Xplor.
