Guestbook comments from the manager

Wonderful experience! The property's location is perfect. In a gated residential community with 24-hour security, one block to the beach, and a 5-7 minute walk either along the beach or through the community to all the restaurants, shopping, ferry. Bicycles were also provided so it was very easy to get around. The house was perfect for an extended stay. We were there for 10 days. All kitchen appliances and utensils, lots of space to spread out, air conditioning in both bedrooms, housekeeper was there Monday-Saturday and even took our laundry to be cleaned for $3USD which made packing so much easier. Outdoor space was great with a balcony off the dining area, off the 2nd bedroom, off the master bedroom, and then the master had a second balcony with access to an upper deck for sunning with views of the ocean. House was clean and just had a couple minor maintenance issues that were addressed with the property manager upon departure. My son and I loved our stay and would definitely go back.

Casita #9 Cosy Family Home Minutes to The Beach
average rating of 4.625 based on 15 reviews

Perfect location close to the beach and town with a nice pool.

  • 5 of 5

Overall great experience staying at Casita #9. The proximity to the beach, 1 minute walk, and to 5th ave, 10 minute walk make this place hard to beat. The pool was nice on the really hot days, and provided a nice break from the sun.

The place itself is nothing fancy but it has all you need for a great stay in Playa. A few things came up during our stay and the staff were there to take care of anything within an hour. The owner and staff were extremely nice and helped to make our stay very comfortable. We would definitely stay here agiain.

Awesome property comes exactly as pictured and described. Marielle responded fairly quickly on email and anything we needed we received fairly quickly. Wi-Fi is fairly sketchy but we were informed of that when we arrived. Hot water runs for maybe two minutes maximum so don't take a shower one after the other! Other than that beautiful home quiet location and perfect distance from the beach period would definitely come here again

Charming Mexican casita perfectly located in PlayaCar

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as pictured......adorable and loaded with Mexican character. Just a block from the best beach and very close to 5th Av and all that goes with it. Since it is a period casita, one can expect small issues and each time, they (the onsite field team lead by Carlos & Amir) were dealt with immediately..... with a smile and perfectly. Just a great 10 days!!! My family and I loved it.

Fantastic place to stay in Riviera Maya

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful home to vacation in and larger than the photographs suggested. Pool right outside the door and a beautiful beach just steps away. The neighborhood is quiet and charming, but you are a short walk from the energy and excitement of Playa del Carmen as well if you choose. The owner and property managers were great to work with. Highly recommended!

Location, location, location

  • 4 of 5

Spacious and comfortable house with a charming pool area;

Lovely neighborhood populated by a mix of well-tended/landscaped colonial-style and modern homes, broken up by rectangles of jungle filled w/birds, lizards and replica ruins;

One block from a gorgeous stretch of beach: uncrowded, but great people-watching;

Two minute walk from Playacar's downtown, featuring an excellent pizza place and great place for fish/Calamari tacos 3 doors down;

10 minutes from the ferry and southern edge of Playa Del Carmen.

We'll be back.

Highly recommended with right set of expectations

  • 4 of 5

This is a great great place to rent. Let me start with the positives: the house is in a secured community where only resident have access, and so it is quiet, it is safe, and most importantly, the beach is clean and not overcrowded. Other places in Playa you either have overcrowded public beaches, or you have to pay "beach rights" or minimum consumption rights at a private beach club.

The house is very literally 1.5 blocks from the beach, and you can't beat the location.

Walking to "la quinta", which is the main commercial street where all the shops and restaurants are takes 10 minutes.

The house is small and comfortable, but perfectly nice and clean. Good water pressure on the running water, no problem with getting hot water.

Finally, the owner/manager are very responsive. The 2 occasions when we asked for something, we had it being addressed immediately.

Now, here is where the expectations come in. It's nothing that is wrong per se, but they are things you may be expecting, and so I think important to know about.

- the pool is nice, but in the shade during parts of the day and hence not the main attraction. I would really say this house makes more sense to rent to then go to the beach. If what you want is lay by the pool all day, this may not be for you.

- the kitchen is functional, but equipped very sparsely. It is obvious most people who rent here don't do much cooking, but just make some coffee or a quesadilla now and again. Given the vast choice of restaurants in Playa, that may indeed be your preference. But we do tend to do grocery shopping and cook a lot when we travel, and for that, this was sparse. Don't get me wrong... stove, oven, toaster, microwave, fridge, coffee machine are all there and work. But hardly enough pots and pans or even plates and cutlery to prepare food. We ended up buying additional plates and cutlery and only had one pan.

- the wifi worked but has a very week signal, and mostly only in the bedrooms

- we were told the toilets block easily and hence asked to throw the toilet paper into a trash can instead of flushing it down. That's not ideal, but doable. However, in that case, I would have expected the toilets to be equipped with covered trash cans, to block the view and smell of the toilet paper. They weren't. Same thing in the kitchen, where the open trash can attracted a nightly procession of ants. But to manager's credit, we asked them to change it, and they did.
