About Laurie Kigner

We've lived in Minnesota since the 1978. While Minnesota is a fabulous place to live, we understandably fell in love with Playa del Carmen in the winter of 2003 during a 3 night stay on 5th Avenue.

Laurie Kigner purchased this villa in 2004

Why Laurie Kigner chose Quintana Roo

This property enchanted us with it's beautiful, tranquil garden setting that surrounds the gorgeous pool. It is so close to downtown Playa del Carmen and the beaches that it is seems like an oasis within an oasis.

What makes this villa unique

This home has beautiful light reflecting through the spacious rooms, every window looking upon a tropical garden.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our stay and your home is just beautiful!! The house is just perfect, and the experience of Playa has been great. I will refer friends and hope to return. It would be great to meet you some time.

Skip the resort. Great home for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 rented Villa Kigner in August and we really loved the house and the community. The pools in the complex were terrific and the house has 7 bikes which we used a number of times to get to the beach. (the bikes aren't ideal for smaller kids).

The grounds were very nicely landscaped and well protected. Neigbouring units were all well-kept and quiet. We always felt very safe and secure. There are 2 groceries stores very close by, just outside of Playacar, and easy to get groceries at. Playacar has some small stores and restaurants as well that are easy to walk to.

It's a bit of a walk to Playa del Carmen and not that easy to find the beach, but we managed well. We had some great meals in town. We don't recommend eating on 5th avenue. We had a much better experience eating at local restaurants which were very easy to get to from the house.

The proximity to various activities around the Mayan Riviera is perfect. Snorkeling, ruins, cenotes. We had a great trip and were so glad we picked Villa Kigner to stay at.

Excellent Property Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I booked this property with Laurie, which was a breeze. She was very helpful during the booking process answering all of our questions about the house, neighborhood, and surrounding area. Upon our arrival we were very impressed with the location and proximity to downtown. Playacar Phase II is located right off the HWY 307. You can actually see the large brick sign which reads PLAYACAR as you are driving. Once you see the Sam's Outlet store you just make a quick uturn and you are at the entrance.

As we entered the neighborhood we stopped at the gate to gain access then proceeded to the house. It's a gorgeous property with an immaculate golf course, beuatifully well maintained homes, and even quaint shops/restaurants/bars/convenience store (Oxxo). Our property manager Chris met us outside the second gate to enter Villas Pakal and take us to our house. He greeted us with a smile, showed us everything to know about the house, asked us if we needed anything, even bought us some basic supplies for the fridge to get us going. We instantly felt right at home. After answering a few questions about our bearings Chris said his goodbye and told us to call him if we needed anything.

The best thing about this house for our group was the closeness to downtown. We walked in the first day. It took maybe 15 to 20 minutes by foot to get all the way down to where the Ferry runs to Cozumel. But we didn't have to walk. As soon as you come out of the house there are taxis waiting to give you a ride. For a few bucks they will gladly drive you in.

So my recommendation for anyone looking for a house with a pool that's close enough to downtown to come and go as you please would be to book with Laurie.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic vacation with the family. Close to the beach and excitement of town, yet secluded. Lovely mornings on the patio listening to and watching the wildlife. Kitchen well-equipped, bedrooms roomy and comfortable, and living space easily accommodated our family of 8. Enjoyed biking to town and to the beach during the day and strolling around at night. Also loved the French bakery at the corner. Pools are beautiful. Friendly neighbors. Perfect balance of peace and excitement. Can't wait to go back.

Villa in Playacar

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay in this place last week...quiet, calm peaceful... away from the raucous town of Playa del Carmen. The bikes provided were the perfect way to get around. The house is spacious and airy, we never ran the A/C even though the temperature reached 30 degrees. Friendly neighbours within the community added to an enjoyable experience. We felt very safe , even walking/ biking at night. Owner Laurie and property manager Chris were attentive to a fault. Recommended....

Playacar Phase 1 and in downtown Playa del Carmen

The home is next to a beautiful 18 hole golf course. The white sand beaches and magic of Playa's 5th avenue shopping and dining district are only 1 mile away. We are affiliated with a property management company that can provide you with information and assistance. We can provide tips and assistance. Our favorite way to spend the day when not playing golf is exploring coastal beaches and cenotes. The Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza make great day trips.
