5 Bedroom Villa with Private Pool close to Beach and Town

Villa La Vida Loca is a private, residential vacation rental home located in Playa del Carmen, Playacar Phase 2 only a few minutes walk to beach and town. Located on Retorno Akab Uno at the end of a cul-de-sac the house is peaceful and quiet, with lots of room for entertainment.

Beautifully designed and executed by local craftsmen, Villa La Vida Loca has 5 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, a den with 2 full futons, an office with internet and a sofa bed, several terraces, and a private yard with a giant pool.

The palm tree theme is evident everywhere - from the carving on the front door to the unique wrought iron railings.

Enter into the grand foyer, with a view through dining and living room with TV right out to the pool. The outdoor area is very private, with a Spanish design wall and mature landscaping everywhere, leading to an intimate green space for hammocks in the shade on the other side of the waterfall. Two covered outdoor rooms surround the pool, with an outdoor bar and grill area to supplement the full kitchen with eat-in island.

The master bedroom with king sized bed and TV overlooks the garden and pool area. A double cushioned lounger on the terrace off the master bedroom provides a romantic spot to nap or read a book.

The four upstairs bedrooms radiate off the library with 2 double futons. Three of the upstairs bedrooms have king sized beds, and one bedroom features two queen sized beds. Each bedroom is outfitted with high quality mattresses, linens and towels and its own private bathroom. Three bedrooms have direct access to the L shaped terrace and the front bedroom has its own balcony.

The office has a curved sofa that extends to make a circular bed and its own flat screen TV. A full bathroom is just off the foyer.

On the roof top terrace you will be able to catch sunrise or sunset. A second bar area with built-in seating, dining area and a half bath make this a great place for entertainment.

This is a special property - perfect for adult gatherings of friends or family. Children under the age of 10 will be considered on an individual basis.

Mexican Castle

  • 5 of 5

This place is the ultimate vacation getaway for a bigger group. Management was on point and professional. They organized round trip transportation that was timely friendly and efficient as well. I will definitely use their services again in the future.

Thanks for the great experience.

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a huge property! Plenty of room for our 5 couples to spread out. Very well maintained. Easy walk to beach. Easy walk to town, however, if you don’t want to walk it’s super easy to grab a taxi.

Booking was easy, everyone was wonderful to deal with and maid service 3x a week was great!

Dream Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Vida Loco for week with our extended family and absolutely loved it. The house itself was very spacious. We had three families there and had plenty of room for everyone with extra space to lounge about. The house was very clean and had everything we needed available for cooking, eating, drinking. There was ample bottled water for drinking as well as filtered water for cooking and washing up. The pool was clean and an excellent spot to cool down. The house was situated in a gated community so there was never any safety concerns at the property. It is about a 10-15 minute walk (or a short cab ride) to a big grocery store. It is even closer to the beach, bars, restaurants, and shops.

Before we arrived in Mexico, Claudia answered all of our questions very promptly. She also helped us set up tours and transport to and from the airport. She also connected us with a wonderful chef that came to the house the night we arrived and prepared a Mexican feast. It was phenomenal!

Once we got settled in the onsite manager, Dan, took over right where Claudia left off. He helped us navigate around (even going so far as to give my sister and I a ride to the grocery store the first time). He helped us arrange additional tours, and checked in with us daily to ensure everything was running smoothly.

The WiFi left a little to be desired. Basic Internet was available, but streaming was not possible. My family has t-mobile with N. America plan so we had good service with that, but the others were with sprint and coverage was slim. We had better things to do than stream video though!

Overall, it was an excellent stay, I would not hesitate to return!

Look No Further, You Found Your Next Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do this house no justice (though I would recommend watching the youtube video for a good idea of the paradise you'll be entering). Words cannot describe the sense of satisfaction I had after renting this home and seeing the reaction of my 11 friends when they entered. The proximity to the beach is great, as Playacar has a beautiful little section close enough to downtown Playa del Carmen that you can hop over to the bars and beach clubs if you desire, or stay in your remote location.

We definitely recommend taking the Ferry to Cozumel for at least a day or two. Renting cars is suggested, as we had a couple roadtrips to nearby Tulum and Xel-Ha, as well as one long day where we saw Chichen Itza, Ik Kil Cenote, Vallodolid, and more of the Yucatan. Everything about this house was great - Dan was friendly and happy to answer questions about the grill and safe. Maids came by 3 times over the course of the week, but we never felt intruded upon once. It was a perfect mix of privacy and quick response that you want in a vacation home. Beds may not even be fully populated, as some members spent nights on the roof or in the hammock just to stargaze.

There is one disclaimer I would leave, is that we had one noise complaint on our 5th night. It was deserved, but the exact adjacent neighbors do have dogs as well that bark, so just be prepared for that. Other than that, this is definitely recommended in every way possible!

Almost Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Do not look anywhere else!.....We stayed at this immaculate house with 5 bedrooms (each with their own ensuite) and were totally in awe of the privacy, amenities and location relative to the beach and downtown Playa del Carmen. We felt very fortunate to have found this gem in Playacar. The Property Management Company were true professionals and were quick to respond to any query we had from local dining recommendations to day trips outside of Playa Del Carmen. Everything was very clean and first class.....the pool is huge and a nice relief from the heat of the afternoon. The rooftop bar and patio is a great place to take in the beautiful sunset and it even has a bathroom to minimize stair climbing! I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a private relaxing multi-amenity well appointed rental in last not miss taking in the Cirque du Soleil is great value for the money!

Awesome Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A paradise within a paradise. Our Playa getaway was simply enhanced with having our own resort house within walking distance to miles of sandy beaches. Don't pass up on an opportunity to rent this "resort home".
