About Thomas Frazee
We have both lived in Minnesota our entire lives and dreamed of living in a warm, tropical climate on a beautiful, white, sand beach. We've traveled all over the Caribbean, but when we arrived in Playa del Carmen, we knew this was it! We absolutely love everything about this area. There is so much to do and yet you can sit quietly by the beach and just soak up the beauty and sun. We hope you enjoy your stay. Tom and Terry
Thomas Frazee purchased this Condo in 1999
Why Thomas Frazee chose Playacar Fase I
Unit 7101 is a corner unit that faces the NE. In the late afternoon, after you've had your fill of sun, you can sit on the balcony in the cool shade and enjoy the view while drinking your favorite cold beverage. Because it's on the corner, you can enjoy the beach from three sides of the condo. It just never gets old. We took a break from VRBO for awhile. We're back now and have many reviews on other sites.
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy breakfast, lunch, and snacks at the condo, but we love to stroll into town in the evening for dinner. There is something for everyone less than 5 minutes away. Yet, the condo sits in the gated community of Playacar and is quiet, safe, and serene. Just perfect!

Damage and incidentals
You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property caused by you or your party during your stay.
The property was as advertised and even better. The view is fantastic. Any minor issues we had were quickly resolved by Oscar the representative from the management company. Tom was great to work with and was very helpful with restaurant recommendations, and how to handle the peso vs dollar issues. We wil for sure be back.
John, Thank you for your kind words. I'm so glad you had a nice time! We are proud to have Oscar and other staff on hand to assist with any questions or issues. I'm glad you found it useful. We look forward to hearing from you again soon!!
The photos don't do this property justice. The views are impeccable, you can listen to the sound of the ocean all day and night if you choose; the facility is excellent for adults and kids alike (if you visit this place, tell Robin the McGees said hello- he's the amazing pool bar and grill representative and is a load of fun); and the location was perfect- you can walk to everything you need. Everything was just great.
Tom and Terry were the perfect hosts.
Serilda, Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad that you enjoyed your getaway. You were an exceptional guest. We'd love to see you again!!
Location, location, location
Neighborhood was quiet, yet in the middle of shopping, restaurants, beach (although couldn't enjoy due to the seaweed). Easy and safe to walk and enjoy nightlife. Condo pool was clean, and bartender was awesome...Great Vacation!
Thanks Eric, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Regrettably the seaweed that is effecting the Caribbean (30 nations) was very bad during your stay. I wish I could control that. Thanks for staying with us and please come back soon!
Enjoyed a great vacation at Xaman-Ha.
Review on each of the important areas as follows:
The unit: The unit is ocean front and the condo amenities are 5 star. It was recently remodeled and they did a fantastic job with the decor. Kitchen,bathroom and bedrooms were very nice and well appointed. Can’t beat watching the sunrise in the morning from the porch.
The condo complex: I would give this a 5 star as well. Small and quaint condo complex with very nice grounds and pool with a swim up bar. Food and drinks were very good and reasonably price. Staff was very friendly.
Community: perfect setting in the gated and guarded private community of playacar phase 1. Walking distance to 5th avenue and great outdoor mall. 5 minute walk to Starbucks every morning. Very safe. Always at ease. Jogging or walking through the playacar phase 1 community was very nice. Beautiful homes and grounds throughout.
The beach: 3 star. They have had a lot of seaweed issues. The first 3 or 4 days it was fine but the last day a ton of seaweed was in the water and washed on shore. They have had issues controlling it and do there best to take it up into piles. The ocean water and swimming was excellent when the seaweed was not coming on shore.
In summary: a great place and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful vacation.
Thanks so much Mark. We do everything we possibly can to make your stay enjoyable. Unfortunately, we cannot control the ocean. You were there during a bad stretch. I'm glad you had a good time and hope you'll come back again!
Wonderful place in paradise!
Great location. Well maintained.
Thanks Cliff! We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come back soon.
