Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

“Mi Casa en Playa” is a charming, yet affordable luxury condo ideally located in Playa del Carmen, just steps from the turquoise waters and white sands of the Mexican Caribbean coast. Located in the peaceful and exclusive gated community of Playacar, set amid lush tropical gardens with a stunning view of the famous Robert Von Hagge 18 hole Championship Golf Course. The condo is part of the well known Chac Ha Condo Complex (Chac-Ha Playacar).

Our location is really unique: just a 4 minute walk to the beach, 2 minute walk to the Golf Club and SPA and a 15 minute walk to the shopping and nightlife of downtown Playa and the famous Quinta Avenida (5th Av.)

My wife and I spent many hours decorating our place with a mix of traditional Mexican art works. This is our beach home and we use regularly so we like to make sure that everything is keep in optimal conditions for us and our guests. We want you to feel as comfortable as we feel every time we go.

After a day at the beach or exploring the many area attractions, you can return to your quiet home and enjoy total privacy. Enjoy a cool dip in the pool, take a nap or unwind with cocktails and conversation on your large terrace overlooking the golf course. In the evening, enjoy a ten-minute stroll past million-dollar homes, Maya ruins and the Xaman-Ha aviary to downtown and its exciting Quinta Avenida. Here you will discover many varied boutiques and shops, Internet cafes, nightclubs, inexpensive sidewalk restaurants and fantastic people watching.

The property is located right in front of the Reef Hotel. As an added bonus you may have access to The Reef Hotel from 9am to 6pm, including beach access, lounge chairs, palapas, two swimming pools and kids activities. In addition, receive a deep discount on the all-inclusive day pass (meals and drinks and non-motorized water sport). The Reef also has a small fitness center available at no cost. They also have a beautiful SPA available for guests. Service fees are not included. Access is provided for up to 4 persons.

Please note that in order to make sure that they provide a quality service to all guests, the Reef Hotel has the right to deny access if they have met their maximum occupancy on any given day. We suggest that you try to be there as early as possible (9am during the high season).

About Luis Rodriguez

We are a Mexican and American family who love Playa del Carmen. We have two kids aged 1 and 4.

We have been visiting the region since we were kids. We just love everything Playa del Carmen has to offer: beautiful beaches, coral reefs, Maya ruins, great food, friendly people and wonderful weather. Our boys love to spend time in Playa. Its their favorite place in the world

Luis Rodriguez purchased this condo in 2006

Why Luis Rodriguez chose Quintana Roo

We spent a long time looking for a vacation home in Playa del Carmen. We decided to buy this condo because it had everything we were looking for in a beach home: a great location (close to town and beach) and the perfect size and ammenities for our family

What makes this condo unique

My wife, Marisa, fell in love with the view from the living room and terrace. It has such a nice view of the pool, the gardens and the golf course.

Being in a gated community was a plus since we were looking for a family friendly property

Money well spent!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 had a wonderful time in Playa/Playacar. The condo was very spacious, clean and accommodating. The owner and manager were very friendly and helpful in all aspects of the trip whether it be to discuss places to see or answer questions relating to the condo. The property was very clean and quiet, and it felt like we were the only ones there as we always had the pool all to ourselves. The heart of Playa is a 15-minute walk (12 minutes of which is simply walking through Playacar proper) and we always saw other couples/families walking and felt very safe at all times. Highly recommend for dinner Cafe Sofia and for breakfast, Lara & Luca. Also, take full advantage of the admission to The Reef Resort (directly across the street). We bought the full amenities day pass (food, drinks, pool, beach, etc. - $50 per person) and had a wonderful time! All in all it is exactly as advertised and we had a great time!

Perfect for a family.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our family with four kids 11,8,4,4. Across from the Reef Club for access to beach and additional 2 pools and a 15 min walk into town. It seemed bigger than what the pictures show. A/C in the bedrooms and living room. We stayed 5 nights and would certainly stay again.

beautiful condo. loved the pool!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo. Great location, walking distance to 5th avenue and ferry, close to the beach. We drove to the ruins, cenotes, Tulum and we were less than one hour away from the condo.

Good communication with the owner and property managers. They made sure everything was ok during our stay. There was plenty of towels and bottled drinking water (very important to me)

We will go back!!!!!

Relaxing Quiet and Lovely

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. The home is larger than expected and very warm and welcoming. The complex was quiet and calm and never packed with people at the pool so it enabled our family to have a very nice relaxing vacation. The caretakers were very easy to get ahold of and super pleasant for anything we needed or any questions we had. They arranged a driver for us from the airport who was happy to stop at Wallmart on the way so we could stock up on supplies.

Location was great with the wonderful playa market (and starbucks) just a few minute walk away and walking into downtown was only about 15 minutes, but the cabs are abundant so you never have to walk if you don't want to.

The public beach was also about a 5 minute walk away. My only downfall was that the Reef hotel wasn't very accommodating to our request to use their amenities and they have very few spots available for outside guests so once they were full (about 20 spots) you couldn't get in. That being said having the reef right there made it very easy geographically for cabs to find us or get us home as well as excursion pick ups right out front.

Overall we loved our stay and time away :-)

Best condo in Playa del Carmen! Perfect location !

  • 5 of 5

This is the best possible location you can imagine in entire Playa del Carmen. Steps from the beach. Short walking distance to downtown full of restaurants and stores. Gated community. The best part is that it is located right across the street from luxurious resort which you have full access to. Resort offers several pools , restaurants, super nice, wide, white sand beach with lounge chairs and umbrellas.

Condo is spacious, super clean, tastefully furnished and decorated. It offers fully equipped kitchen plus washer and dryer. Huge balcony overlooks big beautiful pool and golf course.

Our family had the best vacation ever. We would recommend it to everyone. Out of many condos in that gated community this one have guaranteed best location.

Our kids had a blast! We absolutely loved it!

We will be back :)

Playa del Carmen is a short 45 minute drive from Cancun airport, in the heart of the Riviera Maya.

We are part of the well knwon Chac-Ha condo complex. The location of the condo is ideal: just a 5 minute walk to the beach, 1 minute walk to the Golf Club and SPA and a 15 minute walk to the shopping and night life of the famous Quinta Avenida (5th Av.) We are located in the exclusive gated community of Playcar, right in front of the Reef Hotel.

After a day at the beach or exploring the many area attractions, you can return to your quiet home and enjoy total privacy. Enjoy a cool dip in the pool, take a nap or unwind with cocktails and conversation on your large terrace overlooking the golf course. In the evening, enjoy a ten-minute stroll past million-dollar homes, Maya ruins and the Xaman-Ha aviary to downtown and its exciting Quinta Avenida.
