Guestbook comments from the manager

“The most amazing beach holiday we have been on!”

We are not long back from mexico where we stayed at casa chanty "Playa Del Secreto" and absolutely loved every minute of it.The location of the villa was exactly what we were looking for,direct on the beach and peaceful!Its exactly how you would imagine it and the view from the penthouse 360 degree window was breath taking.Watching the sunrise from the balcony every morning was a luxury.My two young sons were with us and they loved living right on the beach and having a little pool to play in aswell!We hired a car which is pretty necessary there and it was only 5min drive into Puerto Morelos where we could get food shopping etc but was an amazing little ccarribean fishing village.There,s plenty to do as you are in between cancun and playa del carmen.We would definately go back....Leianne from scotland

My family and I stayed at this amazing house in January 2009. The pictures truly do not do it justice. The view is absolutely amazing!! It is the perfect place if you are looking to relax and avoid the high traffic tourist areas that crowd some of Mexico's beaches. It is a 5 minute drive into Puerto Morelos which is a small fishing town just north of the house. Playa del Carmen is a short drive south from the house as well. The beach where the house is located is very private and secluded. If you are looking for a place with an amazing view and a quiet location, this is definitely your place!

We just returned from an amazing week at Casa Chanty. The home is just as it shows with the living area having a stunning wrap around view of the ocean. The sand is incredibly soft and white and the ocean is crystal clear and warm. I have to say that the beach is one of the best we have seen. We did rent a car, which I highly suggest, because it is a little ways away from shopping, restaurants, etc. Puerto Morelos is about a 10 minute drive and has everything you need including grocery stores, restaurants on the beach, souvenier shops, fishing and snorkeling. The home is situated between Cancun and Playa del Carmen so it was easy getting around to all of the areas. We enjoyed Tulum and cenotes which were only about an hour away but there are closer ones as well.

The home has everything you need including coffee pot, blender, pots and pans, dishes. It is important to keep food off the counters to prevent ants but that is to be expected anywhere. There were 7 of us and there was plenty of room in this 3 bed/3ba plus loft home. We were very comfortable in the beds and enjoyed the individual a/c in each room. The bathrooms were great and there was plenty of hot water. Yes, you do need to wait a few minutes to get the water hot as per other reviews, but, who cares!

We are looking forward to returning some day and renting the entire home instead of only the top Penthouse.

The boys used the kayaks to go further out into the ocean and the girls enjoyed the outdoor beds and pool area for relaxing.

Alberto lives in the back house and was there whenever we needed him for fresh towels, toilet paper, taxis, or whatever. My girls fell in love with Perla, his dog, and wanted to take her home with us.

Be sure to book this will be so happy you did!

Casa Chanty...pretty close to perfect!

  • 5 of 5

When you wake up in the morning and walk into the living room you feel like you are sitting on top of the's amazing! The view will take your breathe's simply spectacular! At the end of the day you get to fall asleep listening to the waves of the ocean...yes you are that close!

We had the upper unit, "the penthouse". Our group was two couples and my 2 grown children. The house was very spacious. Three bathrooms was great for our group of six. Our only complaint about the bathrooms would be the hot water. We complained to Alberto and were told that we needed to let the water run and that it would eventually get hot...this is true...but it takes anywhere between 5-10 minutes for it to get warm/hot. Never once were we able to turn on the water and have it be hot.

The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and pots and pans. When we arrived we had two refrigerators...which was great because we used one for drinks only. Two days later...the one for drinks was removed because it was leaking into the downstairs unit. Since we were staying there and cooking our meals the second fridge was needed. Once they took it they never brought it back. The blender leaks a black liquid out the bottom every time you use it. The bottled water cooler that they provide was awesome!

The beach is beautiful and very private! White sands and not a lot of rocks. We were able to walk into the ocean bare footed...water shoes weren't needed. You'd see maybe 10 people a day walk by. The week of our stay there the was a large amount of seaweed on the shore that you had to walk thru to get to the beach. After we were there for a couple of days...Alberto had his crew come and bury a large amount of it so that you could walk to the water without walking over the seaweed. Alberto did say that normally there is not a problem with seaweed. Even with the seaweed there...the beach was still amazing!

Alberto lives in a small house behind the property. He was very helpful! We did not rent a car. So he called cabs for us as well as ordered our pizza on our first night. Very nice man!

Overall our stay was awesome! The few minor items of concern did not ruin our vacation...just wanted to give an honest feedback of our experience. The photos they have listed are exactly what the house looks like! So if you are looking for a secluded beach front house...Casa Chanty is for you!

Owner's Response: dearest Amy Thanks for your lovely and honest reviews, we appreciate anything you can tell us after your return in order to always improve what we offer to our customers. I'm sorry for the times it takes the water to reach the water heater is located outside the laundry room on the ground floor of the house and it is for this reason that the path has to make that takes 5 minutes to get hot water. The fridge white you were talking about was a fridge was put provisionally in the penthouse waiting for the new bigger refrigerator (who arrived during the week when you were there) that would replace just the two smaller fridges and I had requested that both small refrigerators was replaced with the new one, probably my husband "Alberto" could not explain well, excuse us. I am very happy that for the rest of you feel great, for me playa del secteto is truly a special place where people feel free and peaceful, is so quiet and safe and I'm glad you and your family have shared this experience, thank you so much for your very kind words and sensations that you have sent, and your helpful advice. P.S the blender we have already changed !! thanks a lot,now there's a new one. Thanks again and happy year, best wishes to your family. Cristina

We stayed at this wonderland for 8 nights with a group of 8. The house was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked, with the usual minor problems of bad knives and such but that is to be expected and encountered in every vacation rental I've ever stayed at.

The view was spectacular, the place was very roomy. Having three bathrooms was a godsend! It was nice to have such a private beach with no vendors hasseling us and just a few other vacationers walking the beach. Every day the view and the ocean just took my breath away with how gorgeous it was.

Because there is SO much to do in the area, we didn't spend a ton of time at the house, but the time we did spend was blissful. We really enjoyed the ocean, the small swimming pool, the outside shower, the hammock and all of the places to lounge.

We felt very safe there and appreciated having the guards and the gate so that not just anyone could drive to the house. The house looked amazing at night lit up when we looked up from the beach. When we walked the beach looking at all of the other houses we by far preferred Casa Chanty. It is unique and tropical looking and just perfection really.

We rented cars which made it easy to get around and take day trips to Tulum, Coba, Xplor, Chitzen Itza, Isla Mujeres, and Cozumel. We ate dinner in Puerto Morales a few times and I totally recommend La Tarraza. It was a short five minute drive away.

I definitely plan to be back, hopefully for a longer trip so I can spend more time at this amazing house. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us.

Owner's Response: Dear Jenna Thank you so much I have no words to tell you how happy you made me, it is a great satisfaction to me that you were happy with the place and the house is the thing that makes me feel happy, to read your words made ??me realize that I you feel really part of Playa del Secreto and this is the most important thing, wake up in the morning on the beach just a few steps from the water with the rising sun does try very strong emotions, and the tranquility of playa del secreto make you feel a little special and lucky and it's a beautiful feeling. Thank you for choosing to stay at Casa Chanty, our best wishes and we hope to see you soon then. Cristina & Alberto

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

I cannot believe what a slice of paradise this property is. The house is exactly what I was expecting and the views and courtyard were better than expected. The property is very well maintained and I saw someone there each day making sure everything was in order. I spent most of my time at the house in the courtyard (vs the beach itself) and I SO appreciated the care of the pool and the beach chairs, etc.

The house itself is so great. We had 8 people with us and not too many more towels than we had people so that was a bit of a challenge, but nothing hindering. The breeze swept through the main living areas and the back three bedrooms each had an A/C unit in it which was a wonderful relief from the daily heat and humidity.

The kitchen was also very well stocked (although the bottom of the blender oozed strange black liquid and the coffee pot was cracked so leaked as well. There are ants in the tropics but they weren't too bad here and we tried to keep things very tidy so as to avoid major infestation. Lots of pots and pans... knives weren't that sharp, but they were useable. LOTS of space for dried food and two refrigerators also made a huge difference for 8 people. Having the filtered tap water and the bottled drinking water was unexpected and absolutely wonderful!

I have only 2 criticisms, both of which don't hinder my giving this property a no-hesitation 5 star review. 1. It is advertised that we would have maid service 3x per week. We we there 8 nights and had someone come only one time. I wouldn't have expected someone to make our beds each time, but having the trash taken out, the bottled water replaced and the floors swept would have made a huge difference. 2. Check out time is listed as 11:00 am. We asked the manager on site if we could stay a little later and he said "no problem" but then told us at 10:20 am that we had to leave by 10:30am. Which we did not... we were not expecting to leave until 11 or 11:30 so we were not prepared for that change in what we had been told.

Overall, I loved this place. I LOVE the privacy and isolation of the beach and home. Dealing with the owner was always pleasant, informative and her replies were timely and helpful. While we didn't make use of the toys, I LOVE that there is a boogie board, floaties and two little kayaks you could use. If I ever make it to this part of Mexico again, I would definitely consider staying here again. :-)

Thank you again so much for your fantastic impressions and wonderful words to describe the home and place Thanks again Cristina
