Patricia Watson purchased this house in 2005
We bought this house after visiting several all-inclusive resorts in the area and being seriously disappointed by the mediocre quality of the bedding and food; and by a desire to have a 'home' to stay in and enjoy with friends and family, rather than a series of cramped hotel rooms. This house allows us to take large groups of friends and family to the house, walk to dozens of restaurants in town, and have dramatically better accomodations than any resort in the area. Uniquely, we purchased the house with 'guest rights' to use the pools and beach chairs at the neighboring Reef Club Playacar Resort.
The house has the most dramatic pool area I have ever seen, constructed several feet below the grade of the house, around an existing cenote. See pix.
If I could sum up our stay in one word it would be LOVE!!!!! We had a total of three families including our parents and aunt, staying there for 5 days and enjoyed every minute of it. There was plenty of room for all of us. The huge kitchen allowed my mom, aunt and a few others to cook comfortly. There is wi-fi for the teenagers to keep them quiet and busy while the adults were cooking and getting things ready for the days activities or winding down. There are movies also availble for all ages to keep the little ones entertained in the morning or the older ones at night. Beach access was right behind the house and only a few blocks away. We walked to town a few times a day. It was less than a mile away. My in-laws stayed at a newly opened resort in playacar that was also less than a mile away and they were able to walk to the house easily. The pictures online do not do the house justice. The pictures are beautiful but in person the house is even more beautiful!! Patricia was very helpful and there to answer all and any question. The house keeper and her husband were the nicest people too. I can't wait to plan our trip back in a couple of years. We definitely recommend staying here. You will not regret it.
This home is the perfect get away spot. It's spaced out in a way that is great for multiple people, groups, or families to use. The pool, cave, and waterfall in the front yard give it a really great touch that you won't just find anywhere. The bar on the front porch is beautiful, and great for parties! It was only about 2 blocks from the beach, and an easy bike ride to most anywhere you'd want to go around town. I truly can't think of a better way to stay in Mexico!
We were a party of 10-16 depending on the day and had plenty of space to choose from. Loved the fact that the housekeeper came in 3 times during the week, as well as the gardener/pool cleaner. The kitchen is fantastic with everything you need to cook for up to 16ppl as we did. Plenty of seating inside and out for our large group.The outside bar is awesome as well....we used it all week! Bathrooms are huge and water pressure is amazing- something you don't always find in Mexico. As far as location- if you can walk about a mile you can get to ANYTHING you will need or want in Playa Del Carmen. Our 81 year old mom did it everyday!! The beach is one short block and is absolutely beautiful and goes on for miles. The beds in the house we also wonderful....even the sofa beds met the grade. The plunge pool was great after a day at the beach and big enough to get everyone in without bumping into each other. LOVED the turtles at the Cenote, the monkeys in the trees and the other wildlife that comes by each day. With a washer and dryer on hand you really could not want for anything else in this house. Patricia (owner) was one of the best owners I have worked with!!!! She answered every question in less than a day,even when I asked them twice. And- the price was awesome when compared to other listings. So- what I really want to say is stop now and book this house if your dates are available and you won't be sorry. I had 2 professional meeting planners in our group who stayed here and even they could not find fault with this home. Patricia- if you ever get to selling this home please let us know first!!! Bye for now Mexico.....but we will see you again very soon. Patrica- we will rent this home again for sure!
I'm a few weeks late in writing this review but feel compelled to write it. The pave is AMAZING! the owner patricia is always ready to get ahold of before the trip and her house manager ADIEL is very attentive when you get there to make sure you hanne everything thing you need. We even hired his wife to prepare a few meals for us. THIS IS A MUST. ...the food was outstanding. The house has 4 king sized bed which is less common than you think and we had 4 couples so it was perfect. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are HUGE. the kitchen and living are are also big and always accommodated us really when cooking or relaxing. The bedrooms ate spaced or nicely for privacy and the a.c. and fans do am excellent job at keeping the house whatever temperature you like. The property is located in a cul de sac in a jungle style setting which adds to its beauty. Our favorite part after a long day of activities was meeting at the pool to unwind. The pool is made from an actual cenote so there is a nice pins with turtles and a waterfall that adds to its beauty. Bring the mosquito repellant though because it is the TROPICS . A beautiful private beach îs z 2 minute walk out the back gate and the house comes with 2 passes for up to 8 people to use the amenities at the REEF RESORT right next door on the beach. The house is located in a private guarded community and all you have to do is walk one minute to the end of the street and hail a cab for about 4 dollars to anywhere in town you wanna go. We hardly used or rental van except to go to amusement parks and you can even catch shuttles to those. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet luxury home at a truly affordable price. We will definitely return
We had 4 couples stay in the home.. It was wonderful. The house was big enough that everyone had space. We had originally thought the downstairs bathroom was connected so two couples could share but that was not the case. But we still made the best of it and had a great time.. Everyone left happy... Thank you for sharing your home with us...
This was our second stay at Casa Paradisus and once again, it was a wonderful house for our family. The separate suites were perfect for us since we had young children as well as older family members. Last time, we rented cars but this time we found it much easier to take cabs or walk into town. We loved the beach and everyday made the rounds of all the pools available. We cooked at the house about half the time and we had everything we needed. The grill was great and the porch was large enough for our whole group to enjoy. We loved grocery shopping in town and also had some great meals in Playa. Once again, Patricia was very helpful. We used USA Transfers to get to and from the airport and they were very professional and reliable. Overall, it was a great trip at a wonderful house!
The house is located one block north of the Reef Club Playacar Resort. It is at the end of a cul-de-sac on a side street called Retourno Palenque, which is just off of Paseo Xaman-Ha, the main road that runs through the Playacar area of Playa Del Carmen. It is a fifteen minute walk from 5th Avenue, and a 3 minute walk to the beach following a short path directly to the beach from the back porch of the house.
