Quintana Roo Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Casa Azul Caribe (Blue Caribbean House) is a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom Playa del Carmen villa rental situated in the private gated community of Playacar Phase I, a short 15 minute stroll to the pedestrian boulevard of 5th Avenue, with its abundance of shopping and dining options. Located only 11 yards (10 meters) from the pristine white sand beaches of the Riviera Maya, this Playa del Carmen villa rental is a perfect choice for any couple or family looking to escape.

The first thing you’ll notice about Casa Azul Caribe is the 5 foot deep pool with private terrace with dining for 4 and lounge chair. As you walk into the home, you are greeted with a spacious living room complete with satellite TV and DVD, and the adjacent dining room with seating for 6. The open floor plan allows family members in the full kitchen to stay in contact with others even at the pool.

On the first floor besides the living room, dining room and kitchen, there is a private laundry room off the kitchen with washer and dryer and then off the living room is a long hallway with 3 bedrooms. The first bedroom has a queen-sized bed with bathroom access off the hallway; the second one has 2 double beds with private access to the same bathroom; the third bedroom has 2 double beds and its own en-suite bathroom.

The second floor hosts the master bedroom with vaulted ceiling and inlaid brick work, and a private en-suite bathroom. Off the master bedroom there is access to the spacious roof deck terrace with ocean views, and access to the third floor sun deck with lounge chairs and magnificent views of the Caribbean ocean and the island of Cozumel.

Casa Azul Caribe is a short 45 drive south of the Cancun airport.

About Matt Weatherbee

We moved from Boston to Playa del Carmen, Mexico in 2008 and we haven't looked back since. We came originally on vacation and saw the opportunity to open a successful property management company. Within 3 months of returning from vacation we had quit our jobs, sold everything (except our condo and car) and drove 4,500 miles from Boston to Playa with our 2 miniature schnauzers. We absolutely love Mexico. The food is fantastic - we eat out often, enjoying a variety of cuisines in one of a kind establishments, most of which are within walking distance of our condo. We have formed a large circle of friends, mostly retired expats, and even host Thanksgiving with usually more than 50 attendees! For Halloween a group of 20+ friends come over, all dressed in costume and we hit 5th Avenue and hand out candy to all the children. It is the most fun day of the entire year! When we are not working, Matt enjoys working out, reading, playing bridge, cooking gourmet meals and visiting the beach. Allan enjoys watching TV, playing blackjack, eating out, going to the movies and also visiting the beach. Matt and Allan

Why Matt Weatherbee chose Quintana Roo

This is the most popular spot in Playa - a private gated community with stand alone homes. The beach is vast with soft white sand and turquoise waters and is only about 100 steps from your front door. I also love the roof deck with ocean view and Jacuzzi.

Wonderful vacation with family!

  • 4 of 5

We booked the house for my family of 11 (four couples, three children ages 1, 2, and 5 y/o) and had a really lovely time. The location was excellent; set on a quiet street just off the beach but a relatively easy walk into main shopping streets. The beach is clean and there was more than enough room for us to take the provided beach chairs and spread out. The water was safe enough for the older children to swim and although several days had semi-rough surf, the beach slopes out so gradually that they could easily get beyond the breakers. Lots of people walking along the waveline but nothing intrusive.

During the registration process, Matt and Deborah did a fantastic time accommodating a few scheduling changes and being very responsive. We arrived in two groups and Deborah met the first right away. Some of us used the recommended transportation shuttle and they were on time, easy to find, and comfortable. It was more difficult to know who to call once we arrived and several of the provided numbers went to message machines that weren't returned or just rang. When we did get Deborah's cell number, however, she was very responsive and also answered emails quickly. I would recommend confirming those contact points early on.

The house itself is fairly dated, or at least used, and could use updating and some repairs. In general, things were in good working order although the hot tub was non-functional (likely for months per the guest book) and the BBQ would not stay lit for any extended period of time. We went out a purchased additional glasses and a few other utensils but the deficiencies were quite minor. We cooked a majority of our meals and took taxis to buy food after arrival. I would recommend using the offered service for food to be purchased ahead of time. We did not do so and regretted it. Having a pool at the house was a major plus and a great transitional spot. For whatever reason, the pool cleaner came daily for the first few days but did not show up for the last several days.

Overall, I would recommend the house very much and we will certainly be returning to the neighborhood again. Excellent for families and a great introduction to the area.

Ready to head back

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon here and had a wonderful time. I am a kite surfer and was able to kite surf right off the beach while my bride soaked up the rays. The beach chairs and umbrella in the unit were helpful to bring to the beach. Playa is my new favorite spot.

Not the best house for the money

  • 3 of 5

I rented two houses on the same block in Playa Del Carmen for around the same cost per bedroom and this house was not nearly as nice as the other. The rooftop spa doesn't get warm and we had to get someone to recharge the A/C in the upstairs bedroom. Basically the house needs to be updated. There are plenty of houses that are nicer for similar money.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am home is being updated as we speak so future guests have a more pleasant experience. The a/c did run out of freon but that was addressed as soon as we were made aware. The Jacuzzi does heat but it can take a little while to get really hot. Thank you for bringing all these items to our attention. I am going to call the Jacuzzi tech now to address ASAP.
