About the property

2-Bedroom 2-Bath House In Amazing Central Location

This is a spacious, luxuriously renovated private home located 4.5 blocks from Playa's best beach. We are located in a vibrant neighbourhood that contains a mix of locals and vacationers. Turn left and you quickly arrive at some of Playa's best restaurants and the famous fifth avenue. Turn right and you will find more restaurants where locals and tourists mix, as well as large grocery stores and fantastic local markets. Everything is walking distance and Playa's best beach is only 5 minutes away.

This modern home has been recently renovated and features an open floor plan with high-end finishes including marble, granite and stainless steel. There is a full kitchen ideal for anything from making a simple smoothie or a margarita to preparing a complex meal. Have a smoothie before morning yoga at your breakfast bar, whip up a Thanksgiving turkey dinner and serve it on your dining room, or better yet, have ceviche cocktails and margaritas and enjoy them at your outdoor dining table. Connect to your Netflix account on our flat-screen smart TV and catch up on your favourite shows.

We feature two full marble bathrooms including a master spa bath with a double rain shower, high-end egyptian cotton towels and amenities. We have a water softener and plenty of hot water and good water pressure.

Two spacious bedrooms feature high-end king-sized mattresses, lush imported pillows and high-thread count linens.

There is a beautiful oversized patio and a lovely shady garden as well as ambient lighting for beautiful evening meals and margaritas. The massive patio off of the back bedroom has a seating area with candles and recessed lighting as well as a hammock for lazing away the afternoons. We have an in-room safe, a washer/dryer unit and of course, air-conditioning.

The house is well-maintained and its owners are very committed to the upkeep of the property.

We offer a cozy and sumptuous retreat for your short or long-term stay in Playa del Carmen.

About Ursula Hendel

We are a Canadian-Mexican couple who lives part of the year in each country. We are strong supporters of the local community in Playa del Carmen, with a particular emphasis on social justice issues as well as animal rescue. Toltec House welcomes well-behaved canines as houseguests and we provide dog beds and bowls to these special guests.

Ursula Hendel purchased this house in 2011

Why Ursula Hendel chose Gonzalo Guerrero

Our property has a magical location in the middle of everything. Local sports complexes, small business, grocery stores and shops are nearby. There are many fabulous restaurants a short walk from our home. We are also extremely close to the marvellous atmosphere of 5th Avenue, and of course, the white sands and blue waters of the caribbean sea.

What makes this house unique

Toltec House is a private home, not a unit in a condo complex. You have a full kitchen that is truly fully equipped with all the gadgets and knickknacks you would need to prepare a fabulous meal. Toltec House is a place where you can feel as if you were at home, in a tropical land.

Beautifully maintained, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful stay at Toltec House. The location is ideal--close to the action, but not too close! The two-story apartment is beautifully maintained, with high quality linens, very comfortable beds, and a great selection of art. The appliances, including the air conditioners, function perfectly, and the apartment is very secure, clean, and well equipped (pots and pans, etc.). It is very close to great restaurants like Elemento which are off the beaten path (Fifth Avenue), and the neighborhood is quiet. We will be back!

A sanctuary after a long day.

  • 5 of 5

This super clean and modern space was amazing. The ultra modern 2 person rain shower was were the two king size beds!!! Communication with the owner and property liaison was easy and friendly. Within walking distance of everything you could ever want and need. Would highly recommend to those visitors who want a home away from home feel to their trips.

Beautifully decorated, clean, very comfortable beds. Highlight is the small garden and bedroom balcony with tropical plants and birds singing. Lovely original art. Awesome to meet the owners as well! We would definitely book Toltec House again. Great month, gracias to Gabriela and Alex as well!

Perfect extended getaway for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful three weeks at Toltec House with our 2.5 year old and 6 week old kids. The location is amazing: One block to cheap eats on 30th and three blocks to touristy places on 5th. The house was perfect for our needs - comfy beds, good A/C and a 15-min walk to Mamitas beach (faster without two little ones). Lots of helpful amenities like beach towels, sun hats and a large canvas beach bag. The kitchen was well-appointed and allowed us to cook meals at home if we couldn't get the family together to go out. The backyard and second floor balcony are lovely (but bring your mosquito spray!). The neighbors are friendly and the area feels very safe. It is quiet except for during the school day when the school across the street plays music and announcements. The Mega and Wal-Mart are walkable for any needs you have (for us, diapers, beach umbrella and chairs, and lots of water). Gabi (the property manager) and Ursula (the owner) are both lovely and easy to communicate and deal with. This is a great spot for two couples or a small family!

5* Shangri-La is a true delight for the senses !

  • 5 of 5

Casa Tolteca is truly breathtaking. From the moment you arrive and enter the property you're struck with a sense of delight. It's obvious that the owners put alot of thought into furnishing this property. There is marble flooring throughout as well as beautiful art. The roofed back patio comes equipped with very functional furniture as well as a very sturdy hammock. The appliances are very modern as well. The backyard has its own hammock along with a table and chairs. I was sad to leave but I know that I will be back. Thanks for making me feel pampered Ursula !

Tolteca House es una excelente propiedad, la casa es exactamente como se describe en el anuncio y se observa en las fotografías, incluso ofrece mucho mas de lo que se aprecia en ellas. Todo lo que se necesita para una estancia como en su propia casa, utensilios de cocina, mantelerìa, ropa blanca, lavarropas. Decorada con un exquisito gusto!! Un patio trasero y un balcón de ensueño.

La propiedad estaba impecable en limpieza y mantenimiento en nuestro ingreso. Estuvimos alojados 1 semana en Tolteca House y no surgió ningún inconveniente en nuestra estancia.

La casa esta situada en una zona muy linda y exclusiva de Playa del Carmen, a solo tres cuadras de un gran supermercado, lleno de tiendas de servicios y restaurantes a los alrededores. La playa aunque en el mapa se muestra a unas 6 o 7 cuadras, es muy cerca en realidad, las cuadras son pequeñas, así que en 5 minutos uno tiene acceso a las playas Mamitas, de las mas lindas de Playa. Fuimos con vehículo de alquiler, el cual pudimos dejar en un espacio de estacionamiento que tiene la casa en la calle. Perfecto!

La dueña de la casa, Ursula, siempre estuvo a nuestra disposición, aún en algunos requerimientos especiales que hemos solicitados. Kelly, la manager de la propiedad en Playa del Carmen, excelente servicio, atenta a cualquier requerimiento nuestro, muy amable, cordial y divertida.

Sin dudas hemos disfrutado de nuestra estancia en la casa, volveríamos nuevamente y recomendaríamos en un 100% esta propiedad a futuros huéspedes. Gracias por su servicio, excelente!!!

Rates & Availability

Taxes and fees are additional

Additional information about rental rates

Cleaning fee $39.18
Pet Fee $78.36 + Tax
Refundable damage deposit $391.82
Cleaning Fee $39.18 + Tax
Tax Rate 3.0%

Please note! There is construction going on in Playa all the time. Most hotels and vacation rentals will not tell you if there is construction nearby. We, however, are different. We have dramatically reduced rates for the balance of 2017 and early 2018 because our neighbour is renovating his house and we are aware that of the possibility of construction noise from between 9am to 5pm on weekdays and 9am to 2pm on Saturdays. Electricity is not included in this rate and is payable on checkout based on use. Please contact us for any more information about this special rate.

Our cancellation policy is as follows: we do not make money on cancellations. If you need to cancel, please contact us immediately and we will attempt to rebook your dates. If we are successful you will receive a full refund (and Toltec House is a popular property). If we are only able to rebook part of your dates we will pro-rate your refund accordingly.

Second, long-term rentals do not include electricity. Short-term rentals include 10 kWh per day of electricity. Excess use of electricity will incur a charge of 4.5 pesos per kWh payable in cash at checkout. This policy was implemented to curb abuse by guests who choose to be careless with the air-conditioning units and run them when absent or with the windows open. Power in Playa is coal-generated and this is terrible for the planet. The allowance is based on historical use by past guests and should be sufficient for responsible guests to enjoy their stay without incurring extra charges. We thank our guests for their understanding.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
  • Service Fee fully refunded on cancellations that qualify for 100% refund.
