Overview

Playa del Carmen Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

What a spectacular location! 'Casa Selva Caribe' is a modern, luxury 3 bedroom villa set in the exclusive gated community of Playacar, within the Playamar development. Casa Selva Caribe is the house to the left on the main photo.

Open the front door and you are steps from the stunning pool, open the back door and you have a secluded terrace with views of nature!

The private and tranquil patio leads out to the views of nature - between the villa and the golf course is only trees and plants! The front of the villa is just steps from the large shared pool and the famous Xaman-Ha bird sanctuary which is adjacent to the pool and just a few metres from the villa. Numerous tropical birds visit the pool area and with luck you may even spot a toucan while you swim.

Casa Selva Caribe is surrounded by the views of nature in a beautiful and tranquil setting, but it is still close to everything - just a few minutes walk through a small park to the beach, or a similar distance to the 5th Avenue restaurants. Few villas are so fortunate!

The villa is to the north of Playacar, close to the Playa del Carmen entrance. Set in the exclusive gated community of Playacar, this large three bedroom villa sleeps 8 and was built in 2007.

Relax on the secluded patio or the upstairs terrace and listen to the natural sounds of tropical birds. The upstairs terrace has some great sunsets over the trees. From the jacuzzi / bath you can look out over the tree tops.

We have owned Casa Selva Caribe since it was built.

Villa features:

3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, each en suite. From the front door, you are steps from the large swimming pool, whilst at the rear is the secluded and tranquil terrace. The large lounge has spectacular jungle views from full length windows which lead out to the patio.

Upstairs :

The master bedroom has a jacuzzi and also a private terrace with more great views over the trees. You can sit in the jacuzzi with the open window and enjoy views of the jungle and listen to tropical bird song, or relax on the terrace and watch the tropical birds fly by. There is a walk -in closet, king size bed and sofa.

The second bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom with shower and two double, or matrimonial beds. It looks over the fabulous swimming pool at the front.

Downstairs:

The large lounge enjoys great views to the patio and jungle from full length windows.

Satellite TV, Plasma screen TV. Multi region DVD. Modern dining area has a view to the patio and jungle. The third bedroom has a queen bed and enjoys views of the jungle through full length windows. The third bathroom/shower is adjacent.

The fully equipped kitchen overlooks the swimming pool and there is an adjacent laundry room.

The patio has a Weber gas grill and is well stocked with furniture for outside dining.

Every room has ceiling fans and air conditioning, although the generous high ceilings give a luxurious and cool feel even on the hot days.

Throughout the villa, the modern stylish Italian and Mexican furnishings compliment the house style.

The villa is managed by professional agents who are located nearby and will be pleased to assist you. They will meet and greet you shortly after your arrival at the villa. Mid-week maid service is included and other services such as airport transfer and tours can be arranged. A local cell phone is provided for your convenience. There is a detailed welcome book with local information in the villa.

Due to the great location, a rental car is not necessary although having one will give you much more flexibility to explore all the great attractions nearby. There is easy allocated parking.

WiFi Internet access is available free of charge for guests.

About David Roberts

We live in the U.K., but are trying to spend as much time as possible in Playa! We fell in love with Playacar - it is so relaxing, it is a short walk to the beautiful beach and it is also a short walk to the entertainment of 5th Avenue

David Roberts purchased this villa in 2007

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 walk to the beach and town - it is a pleasant and 5 minute walk to either.

What makes this villa unique

As soon as we saw the house, we knew it was right for us! It is wonderful to have such a tranquil location, where the only sounds are the tropical birds, but still be within a short walk of the town, beach or beach club. At the end of a day on the Caribbean beach, return to Casa Selva Caribe to watch the sun set over the trees or swim in the large pool!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such an incredible time in your villa. First, the reservation process was a breeze and we received really helpful instructions before we left. The villa is gorgeous - light and spacious and very well equipped. The pictures don't do it justice. It is in a perfect location: 5 minutes walk to the beach (past very cool Mayan ruins) and 5 minutes to town. We were celebrating our birthdays with some dear friends and cooked many lovely meals on the grill, just relaxing by the pool -which was 3 steps from our door! The concierge, Juan, was super helpful; every need was cared for immediately and he even sorted out skydiving and deep-sea fishing for us. We couldn't have picked a better home for the long weekend and we will have beautiful memories forever. Thank you!

Great experience before, during and after!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise with no complaints. Me, my wife and four children (6-13) stayed one week. We had plenty of room in the house and loved being close to town, the beach and the main highway. We did day excursions each day - driving all over was very easy. We found the description and reviews to be totally accurate. Since this was the first time booking via VRBO, we really appreciated the professionalism and timely communication of the owners. Although we never spoke, all emails were answered quickly and fund transfers were easy. We will recommend this location without hesitation.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Casa Selva Caribe for a week in January 2016 and it fitted my needs exactly. The house is spacious, immaculate, cool and quiet and the location couldn't be better. It is in a quiet cul-de-sac away from all traffic, with a beautiful pool just a few feet from the front door. The quiet patio at the back is great for watching bird life.

There is an easy 5 minute walk to the beach at Playacar through back streets and forest, and it is about 10 minutes' walk to the shops, restaurants and amenities of Playa del Carmen.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week in April and absolutely loved it. The villa was beautiful, spacious, nicely decorated, and very clean. The patio faced a bird sanctuary, which was a very private and peaceful spot for breakfast and for relaxing in the evening. The pool was never crowded and was well maintained, as were the grounds. It was an easy, safe, and scenic walk to the beach and in to town. The owners were very quick to respond by e-mail to questions we had prior to our stay and were always easy to communicate with. On arrival at the villa, we had a note from the villa manager with all of the information we needed along with her contact information. Casa Selva Caribe was a great place to stay. We would definitely love to go back!

Lovely vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute in this house and recommends it very much. Perfect for us, a family with 3 teenagers. Nice to have some space of our own, compared to small hotelrooms. Relaxing and a clean place. Pool outside the front door was a +++. Beach is only a 5 minute walk from the house. Very close to golf, Playa del Carmen village (with many restaurants and pubs) and the ferry to Conzumel. All within walking distance 5-10 minutes. Taxis easy to find. The house have a kitchen which is very well equipped, a barbeque grill, washing machine, a mobile for use, wifi, tv. The owners are very nice and our communication fast. Everything satisfying for us! Thank you for letting it out! We will return!

Casa Selva Caribe

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described. It was clean and very well equipped with everything we needed for our vacation. It was an easy 10 minute walk to the shops and restaurants of 5th Avenue and an even shorter walk to the beach. The onsite pool was well maintained. A rental car was useful for sightseeing trips to places such as Tulum, Isla Mujeres and Ek Balam but it would be possible to manage without a car. The owners were extremely easy to deal with, responding quickly to emails and providing helpful information during the booking process, and payments could be made by bank transfer. We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas in Playa del Carmen and would highly recommend this house.

This house was perfect for our vacation! It was extremely clean and equipped with everything you can imagine. The house is very family friendly - great for small children.The owners and the house manager were very open and accessible about any issue or concern we had. This was our first time using this site and we couldn't have picked a better home. It was a great experience. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to relax and and have a wonderful time!

Casa Selva Caribe is located within the gated community of Playacar, with the beautiful Playacar beach and the challenging golf course for golfers. The lively town of Playa del Carmen with all its bars, restaurants and street life is a short walk away. Within a few kilometres of Playacar is the famous theme park Xcaret which will keep any family occupied for a full day.

Furtehr afield, but still within a 45 minute drive are the spectacular Mayan ruins of Tulum, great beaches of the Riviera Maya and snorkelling at Puerto Morelos, Akumal, Xpu-Ha and countless other hide-aways. It is possible to visit these places by public transport, but a car will add to your enjoyment. Within a 2 hour drive you can explore the lesser known, but large Mayan ruins of Coba, or try to spot Monkeys running free in the jungle at Punta Laguna
