Location outweighs shortfalls

  • 3 of 5

Our family had a great vacation staying at this property. It could have been outstanding but the house does need a little TLC.

The house has a very pleasant feel to it but make no mistake it is a bit run down. For the price they are asking I was disappointed in the old, run-down stove and microwave. The updated fridge in the photo gives an inflated impression of the state of the entire kitchen. If you are a person who loves to cook you will be disappointed. If you are going to be making breakfast, lunch and cocktails only and enjoying Playa's great restaurants for dinner like we did you will be fine.

The patio is great as is the pool. Cleaned almost daily and always unobtrusively. There is shade and sun at all times of day. The beach area is by far the very best in all of Playa. Sunday is a very busy beach day and if you arrive on a Sunday as we did you may be very disheartened however it really is not terribly busy during the week. We took the advise of the other reviewer and set up beach chairs right in front of our house to protect out little area of beach and it worked well. I agree with the reviewer who taught the owner could easily rope off the area as the neighbours had but it truly did not affect us much.

The matter of the master not having an ensuite isn't a big issue either as the bathroom is separated from the living area by a hallway making it private enough but again it would be easy enough for the owner to install a curtain at the end of the hall to create more privacy to be used during the night perhaps.

Every house I have rented ( and there has been quite a few) has has a info sheet etc. to help with general 'how to's. This house has a instant hot water system for showers but we were never told about that. We had trouble getting the pilot light lit. etc. All things that could have been covered in an info sheet.

The property management company was tremendous! Sweet, efficient, helpful in every way.The BBQ was not cleaned and there was no tools to clean it. They looked after both problems within the hour. The A/C was leaking and they were right on the problem with excellent communication.

The frustrating thing is that this could be an extraordinary property if the owners cared to make it so. Now it seems like a bit of a rip off.

The location can't be beat and the problems you will encounter will be handled wonderfully.

Although I have to give this property 3.5 stars it didn't stop us from having a 5 star vacation.

Fabulous view and comfortable house, but room for improvement.

  • 4 of 5

We really did have a great time at this location, but for the money we spent I expected it to be a bit better. I will get the negatives out first. The kitchen is small and we couldn't figure out how to get the oven to work, but probably operator error. The ice maker was broken and they tried to come and fix it but never did. There is not a dishwasher, housekeeping does wash the dishes but they don't come everyday so we bought plastic plates, cups and utensil. Make sure you don't leave any food out or open (like a bag of chips) because the sugar ants are bad. I agree with the other reviewer about the master not having an ensuite bathroom especially when it is such an easy fix to install a door at the hallway and then it is problem solved. We were just there with our kids so not that big of a deal, but if you were there with another couple I would have been annoyed. The no toilet paper flushing thing was definitely annoying and I feel that should have somehow been conveyed before booking. The other that should be conveyed is that you do not have access to the pool on the other side of the little bridge. They are separate pools that are divided under the bridge. The other pool goes with the 2 bdrm house next door and is separated by shrubs. We lucked out that we had a quiet nice family renting while we were there, but I can see it being a potential problem. I guess you could go with a group and rent both sides though. Lastly, people on the beach proved to be intrusive. They thought nothing of sitting up on the wall right next to the pool, placing all their gear, coolers, bottles etc right there cluttering the view. And leaving trash that blew in the pool. I wised up 3 days before we left and took 2 side tables by the pool and the 4 beach chairs and cooler from the laundry room and spread them out in front of the wall on the beach. Do that by 9am or you will have people all in your business. It helped, but did not completely solve the problem. Also, if you have Verizon you will NOT have cell service anywhere. Not even when we landed in Cancun. But over all, the house was great though and superb location. It was clean and I loved the decor. All the beds were SO comfortable and AC rocked. It was nice to have a washer/dryer too. Alan and all the staff were wonderful and accommodating. I would come again if they add the door at hallway to master and rope off a portion of beach in front of the wall (the house next door did this) to keep people from intruding.

Great location but LOTS of watch-outs

  • 3 of 5

The Great:

The location is superb - beach front with a view to Cozumel.

The staff at Playacar Vacation Rentals was superb - Elia is a GEM! Alan, the cleaning team and the pool team were professional and accommodating!

Proximity to Playa Del Carmen - everything is walking distance.

The Not So Good (why I will not return to this location):

The Master Bathroom is not an En Suite.

The plumbing system here does not allow toilet paper to be flushed - this is a major inconvenience.

The location, while beautiful, can be a bit "questionable". While we never felt unsafe, if feels like a overly-populated beach community (cigarette smokers, pot smokers, BRUHs partying all day...so smoke and noise blew into the house) - we did not have the isolation we prefer.

The fixtures in bathroom and kitchen are old, as are the cooking utensils in the kitchen.

Overall, great location and great people. But not the quality I expect at this price point. We had much better luck renting VRBO locations north of Playa Del Carmen (higher- end, quieter). I am a bit disappointed with the reservationist at VRBO who commented to me "you picked a superb location". When I asked about the lack of reviews, she told me that she had heard internally that this was a fantastic property...I should have questioned the lack of reviews as a warning sign...
