Mixed feelings

  • 3 of 5

This place is fabulous! But ongoing maintenance is much needed. When new, I bet this was the talk of the town. Now, pool cushions are torn and stained, many light fixtures have no light bulbs, the handle to the hot tub on the roof was broken, the grill is rusted, “clothes dryer” is a rack outside. Door stops are unattached and lying on the floor. Many items are broken. The big bang was mini explosions that shook the whole place in the Villa (#12) hot water heater. The room was black with soot so this had been going on for a very long time & it wasn’t vented. They did replace with a new tankless & painted over the soot (kind of) while we were there but then the paint fumes permeated the bedroom closest to that room for the rest of our stay. The handle to the hot tub (a jetted bathtub) was repaired and was fabulous if you can climb the treacherous stairs (not safe for kids or adults drinking adult beverages). The owner did offer us another day but who can do that with a party of 9 that came from different parts of the U.S. Be prepared with translator on your smart phone as those whose numbers you are given to call for information or help do not speak English. Due to a mix up in available dates we were first put into 2-4 bedroom villas (very nice) and then moved to the 4 bedroom villa. That with the water heater explosions and paint, I just never felt settled & relaxed. Sounds like I’m doing nothing but complaining but we actually loved this place! Close to the beach, shopping, pier, etc. and the neighborhood is beautiful and safe. we were hoping to make this an annual retreat for our family as there is an 8 bedroom villa as well. We have a HUGE family living all over the US. What we experienced may be typical for VRBO homes IN Playa, so we will wait to decide whether or not this will be the place for us. I did want authentic as opposed to feeling like I was checking into a hotel in the U.S. so that may be just what we got. If you stay here you MUST get Mariam to cook for you! She cooked the fish we caught with added sides and the food was FABULOUS!!!!!! Carlos the property manager is delightful and speaks English very well. He did the best he could to get things repaired. It would have been more enjoyable if items had been repaired BEFORE we requested. All in all, it’s a pretty neat place to stay and the price may reflect the lack of ongoing maintenance.

Nice place, great location

  • 4 of 5

Villa Kiin was a great choice for my group of 7 people (could have easily accommodated 1 or 2 more). The location is great - about 2 blocks from the white sandy beach, and about 10 minute walk to the main strip in town. Carlos, the property manager was quick to respond to any issues that came up (for example, hot water wasn't working when we arrived, and he came over quickly to fix the problem). It's not super fancy, but it is quite charming and comfortable.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We have been to Playa more than 25 times. As we began planning for a large 50th birthday party (25 friends), we had our priorities well defined. We wanted villas in the very safe location of Playacar Phase 1 as every house is close to the beach and such an easy walk to town for restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. We also wanted reasonably priced accommodations since the beauty of Playa is experienced with it's people, beaches and environment. Villas Kiin did not disappoint. The villa had all of the basics needed for the 8 of us staying in the 4 bedroom villa. While we don't do a great deal of cooking while on vacation (Playa offers to many wonderful restaurants), the stove and cooking utensils were more than sufficent, and the other essentials (coffee maker, refrigerator, toaster, etc) all worked fine. The bedrooms had enough separation so that everyone slept well and without disruption. The benefit of each bedroom having it's own bathroom also goes a long way! If I was to give criticism, it would be the lack of a washer & dryer. I like to pack as light as possible when heading out on vacation, so I appreciate having a W&D in a rental. But even with that, we would rent Villas Kiin again.

Great location, nice houses, peaceful, secure and with a lot of nature

  • 4 of 5

I stood in Villa Skiin for 2 months. First we stood 1 month in the 2bdr villa heading with the terasse to the pool. Though, we never used that beautiful pool, which is beside a natural cenote and some beautiful big trees, expect for PADI exercice diving, because the beautiful beach of playacar is just 20-30 meters away. As well you find some ancient mayan ruins just on your way to downtown (WOW). We saw a lot of animals starting with colorful birds and ending with cereques (imagine a bit rat with big hips, just much cuter).

The 2bdr villa was very nice decorated, big and especially the roof of the big living room (made out of red stones) gave a great atmosphere. It has very nice and comfortable couches and chairs. The kitchen is well equiped, though sometimes you have to ask the administration to exchange some things that run out of order. They did it promptly. From the bathrooms sometimes came a bad smell, and we had some cockroaches in the house. But I liked it there a lot though!

The 2nd month we stood in a 3lvl-penthouse with jacuzzi rooftop and seaview. The seasight from rooftop and balcony is just amazing! This house was even better than the other. It didn't have the smell neither cockroaches and was great to throw some dinners with friends due to the great dining table and spacy living room. It's a very interesting house, because they can rent it to you in many different ways: only penthouse (2 lvl), penthouse and 1 studio or the complete house with penthouse and 2 studios. As well here you find a nice brick-roof in the master-bedroom on 3rd floor.

the service during the 2 months contained water (as well water to drink), gas, electricity, cable, internet (though we had to fight a bit until we got it and it only worked in some parts of the houses) cleaning, bycicles and many other little things, the administration (Thanks Amir, Myriam, Carlos) were very helpful.

So in the end I have to recommend this house. Although these are not the newest houses, and there are some things you maybe have to close an eye from time to time, I think you get a great deal over there and you'll enjoy your holidays a lot!

Enjoy your time in Mexico, hasta lluego!

Perfect Private Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented one of the villas and his parents rented another in the same complex. We stayed from April 13 to 27, 2010. We loved the privacy and the location was a perfect distance to 5th avenue and was close to all the amenties that we required. We found the villas very comfortable and the property manager to be very helpful. The pool area need a little attention at times but overall we found it very pleasant and relaxing. We would recommend this property and would definetly rent it again. This was one of the best vactions we've ever had and look forward to returning.
