Nestled in the heart of Playa del Carmen , this privately-owned Villa is part of a twelve unit luxury condominium complex with underground parking.

A cascading waterfall welcomes you into this spacious two bedroom, two bathroom Villa.

The bedrooms located on the first level are connected by a private terrace overlooking 1st ave. The Master bedroom decor reflects the soothing colors of sand while the guest bedroom brings in the vibrant colors of the ocean.

A gracefully curved white marble staircase leads to the second level which is flanked by an impressive 20 foot window overlooking the inner courtyard and a floor to ceiling sliding glass door that opens to a private terrace overlooking First Avenue.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had arranged with the owner for transportation to and from the airport and went flawless.

Heidi, the property manager was waiting for us and made us feel very welcome. She was incredibly helpful, showed us how everything worked and gave us local tips and information on restaurants, shops excursions etc. The security of the facility and condo made us feel completely at ease.

We were worried about the music at night from the clubs. I’m not sure about how the acoustics work, but the bedroom was quiet. We brought earplugs but I didn’t end up using mine and we both slept well every night including weekends.

Thanks for sharing your gorgeous, affordable, and safe condo!!!

A home away from home !

  • 5 of 5

I love Playa del Carmen and visit at least twice a year. We usually stay at all-inclusive resorts so this time we decided to try something different and rented a condo, I am so glad we did. We may never stay at an all-inclusive resort again!

The condo location is excellent, close to everything: beach, restaurants, shopping, ferry to Cozumel, etc. The neighborhood is safe and secure. I went out for a morning run every day I was there and it was great. I usually don’t exercise when vacationing but I couldn't wait to get out each morning!

Even though we enjoyed eating out at the 5th Ave restaurants recommended by Heidi we also had fun walking to market (Walmart & Mega) to get groceries for breakfast and snacks. It’s a short walk, about 10 minutes. I think when you shop the local stores it helps you to immerse yourself into area

The condo is well appointed and has all of what you need and more. It was clean, well maintained and we loved the decor. We felt quite comfortable, a home away from home. Yes, it was close to some clubs and bars, but it didn't bother us one bit. We didn't need ear plugs (brought them due to some reviews).

Carlos, the owner was easy to work with. His attention to detail was fantastic, made the whole rental process a breeze. Heidi, in Playa del Carmen was an excellent resource for area tips such as restaurants, excursions, shows etc. We will definitely be renting "Villa de Playa" again in the near future.

The Villa is outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in August for a week. It was a perfect vacation. Our only criterion was that it had to have access to a private outdoor space that would allow us to completely relax in peace. What we found was beyond our expectations. We loved staying here! I had read all the reviews and they were all true. Every aspect from planning our stay through our departure was perfect. The attention to detail of the owners and the caretakers was unparalleled! Upon arrival, we were met by Heidi at the condo whom gave us a great rundown of the Villa its amenities she also touched on town information i.e. where to find great restaurants, beautiful beaches etc.

The Villa is outstanding! It was upscale with nice wooden cabinetry, cooling marble floors, and a really nice bathroom and shower; absolutely perfect for the tropical weather. The decor was elegant throughout the condo. The Villa is stocked with virtually everything you could need including an abundance of towels, TV/cable, movies, magazines, and a blender to make margaritas!

Again as others have said, the condo is centrally and conveniently located to both the beach and 5th avenue (the restaurant/ shopping zone). When staying there you have the fantastic feel of being in the middle of it all while also being a bit of a hidden "getaway". I have to say, we couldn’t get enough of the secluded rooftop, had drinks up there every night and even a BBQ dinner.

The "noise" referenced in some reviews (loud music in the evenings) was a non-issue for us! It actually seems louder in the living room compared to being on the rooftop deck or the outdoor patio but the bedroom was the best area for quietness. We brought earplugs but I didn’t end up using mine and we both slept well every night.

A great find

  • 4 of 5

We booked this unit last minute. It was one of the few that didn't require a week-long stay over the New Year’s holiday. The booking and check in was flawless, top notch, zero issues.

The condo is centrally and conveniently located to both the beach and 5th avenue (the restaurant/ shopping zone). When staying here you are in the middle of it all while also being a bit of a hidden "getaway". I have to say, we couldn’t get enough of the secluded rooftop. Having a private BBQ & Palapa, we felt like we were in our own private resort. We enjoyed a privacy so profound that we barely left the "sanctuary" of the rooftop for more than a few hours during our stay.

This was probably the best vacation we have had and we have traveled all over the world. It was just easy.

What a treat!

  • 5 of 5

More than we imagined. I've stayed in Playa del Carmen several times and this "hidden gem" is by far my favorite condo! You WILL NOT find a better combination of location, facility, and security than the Villa de Playa. Carlos, the owner, made the rental process seamless. This unit is EXACTLY as pictured and MORE! A clean, romantic, modern, breath-taking unit that is a short walk to the beach!

The "noise" that some people referenced in reviews (loud music in the evenings) was a non-issue for us! The transportation to and from the airport was outstanding, the staff made us feel very welcome Heidi was incredibly friendly and efficient at explaining the amenities, and offer suggestions for restaurants, excursions, etc. how everything worked. The security of the facility and villa made us feel completely at ease.

I will conclude with the strongest possible recommendation for staying here on your next vacation. You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful Condo right by 5th Avenue.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is as gorgeous as it looks in the photos. Everything worked great including the air conditioners in each room. I loved having tea on the rooftop in the morning watching the parrots flying by. The staff were super! Playa Del Carmen is very clean and safe. There are more shops and restaurants than you can visit in a couple of weeks. The beach seems endless with a mix of quiet areas and busy resort areas. Bring what you need because the all-inclusive resorts will not serve you. Villas Sacbe is located right next to 5th Avenue which is great for being close to all the bars, shops and restaurants but if you are a light sleeper you can hear the loud music all night long until 6 AM. It is pretty quiet in the daytime but in the middle of the night the streets were full of people partying. I slept with earplugs and had the air conditioner running so didn't hear anything but if you don't wear earplugs and want the windows open you are going to hear the all night parties.

Mayan Villa

  • 4 of 5

Our family arrived at the condo on Sat. evening and we were greeted by Heidi. She gave us all the information we needed amd found her very helpful during our stay. Heidi helped arrange excursions renting a car, where to get banking done, etc. It was very helpful having someone there . The condo was exactly as shown in the pictures, immaculate and very well set up for our family. The building as well was picture perfect and maintenance staff were available if you had questions. The location is close to the beach and restaurants. It does get loud at night so ear plugs are a must. A big thank you to Carlos who was very helpful.
