Overview

Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

THIS IS NOT LIKE ANYTHING AT XAMAN HA... THERE IS NOTHING THAT COMPARES... MORE THAN 3X'S THE LIVING SPACE, AND 3X'S THE TERRACE, PERSONAL HOUSEKEEPER, PERSONAL HOST, HIGH SPEED DSL, UNLIMITED IN AND OUT PHONE CALLS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, A CORDLESS PHONE THAT WORKS AT THE POOL, THE #1 RATED CONDO AT XAMAN HA AND ALSO RATED #1 FOR ALL SPECIALTY PROPERTIES IN PLAYA DEL CARMEN. ALL INCLUDED IN OUR RATE. WASHER & DRYER AVAILABLE (CHARGE BASED UPON # OF GUESTS AND DURATION OF STAY),

Xaman-Ha is a beautiful beach front condo in Playa del Carmen's exclusive 'Playacar' section. Xaman Ha is on the beach just a short walk (aprox. 300 meters) south of the ferry dock to Cozumel in Playa del Carmen.

The Grand Penthouse at Xaman Ha offers a Chef's kitchen and an open dining and living room area.

The balcony or porch off the living room offers a spectacular view to the Caribbean and a chance to enjoy the tropical breeze. The Premier Penthouse unit features the most remarkable views from it's incredible balcony. While other units offer lovely views, this penthouse offers a balcony and view that can't be matched in all of Xaman Ha.

Down by the water, the pool deck is very large with lots of room to sunbathe. An elevated shade pavilion between the pool and beach gives a perfect vantage point for viewing both while comfortably out of the sun. The Xaman Ha pool is tremendous, with a bridge span. Snacks and drinks are served during busy times at the tiled 'bar stool' seats built-in and plenty of shallow area for young swimmers.

Playacar is a manicured up-scale secure gated residential/ hotel area that defines the southern part of Playa del Carmen. It was designed from the ground up to create a sophisticated environment for the tropical lifestyle. Some points of interest within Playacar are small Maya archaeological sites located thru out the area. The Xaman Ha tropical bird aviary has many of the more spectacular bird species to be found in the Yucatan. Sporting attractions include world class fishing, an 18 hole golf course (it includes all drinks and meals), tennis courts and club house.

There is also the beach, shopping at the Plaza Antigua and Plaza Playacar shopping centers the new mall and countless other things to do and see in Playa del Carmen. Playacar is centrally located to all the coastal adventures to be found in the Riviera Maya between Cancun and Tulum.

About John in Playa

Having had a timeshare in Cancun over 29 years ago we took a 'day trip' to Playa del Carmen and have been coming back ever since.

John in Playa purchased this condo in 2000

Why John in Playa chose Playa del Carmen

Having rented just about every available condo at Xaman Ha for 10 years prior to our purchase, we fell in love the location and view and have always wanted to come back.

What makes this condo unique

The view from the all glass front and the triple wide terrace during the day of the Caribbean Sea and the Island of Cozumel in the distance is equally as grand in the evening as the lights on the island glisten off the water in the distance.

Location, location, location !!!

Beautiful views, comfortable and secure, close to 5th Ave restaurants & shops. We walked everywhere. Because we have been here multiple times, it was more of a relaxing "do nothing" vacation, the one tour we did was to Puerto Aventuras for the Dolphin Discovery (wanted to swim with the manatees).

Would recommend this condo to anyone. When John says "best of playa" he means it. ;)

Best vacation Ever! View was amazing. Perfect Host.

  • 5 of 5

Ola John, your Best Of Playa Condo was perfect. Very close to 5th Ave, restaurants and of course beach. We had 3 couples staying in unit and we never felt tight for space. All ammenties worked fine and phone and wifi worked great.The patio ,where we spent most of our condo time was the best. Mari can a few times to clean and looked great afterwards.We cooked in a few times, BBQ steaks and Mahi Mahi on the grill.

We met Robin at the pool bar and had a great time with him and the young man cooking our lunches, as well as the very friendly lady at the lobby desk.

Dinner at local restaurants was amazing, Carboncitos, Casa Sofia and Rancheroes to name a few . We ventured to the "Catch" rooftop bar and lounge in the Thomson hotel. What a view, never felt like you were in Mexico from there.

We shopped at Walmart for groceries and found everything we needed as well the local OXXO store. Bud Light and Coors Light were easy to get .

We did a fishing charter and caught some Mahi Mahi , (go out of gatehouse and turn left across the street). He lived in Toronto for many years and spoke great English. Very fun day!

Gorge picked us up and delivered us back to airport safely and on time, great man. Thanks

Great condo and perfect location.

Thank you John for being so easy to deal with, it was a pleasure dealing with you.

We hope to be regulars now !

The best Balacony View in all Playa!

  • 5 of 5

John, We had the family trip never to be forgotten, we truely enjoyed the condo and all it had to offer. It has without doubt one of the best views in Playa and your recommendation for restaurants and Akumal Bay were very much enjoyed by the entire family. We didnt really spend much time in the condo as the beach, pool and pool bar were too inviting. The kitchen was very well equiped althought the only meals we prepared were breakfast and an occasional snack or a few drinks. We did rent a van, although, it certainly wasnt need but was convenient to have to drive around town, down to Puerto Aventura, Akumal and to get groceries. My entire family greatly appreciate the facilities and are already planning our next venture back to Playa Del Carmen.

Owner's Response: Gracias! We are very happy that you had the opportunity to make wonderful memories for years to come and we were able to be a small part of them. I am so glad to hear that the "side trips" were enjoyable as well... and yes, we LOVE the view and size of our terrace and since we were renters for years prior to getting this condo, we know how small and somewhat useless all the other balconies really are. We would love to have you all back! Thanks again!
