About The Owner

I visited Playa del Carmen 3 years ago to stay with my daughter and son in law who had moved there. I fell in love with it right away. A couple more years and I decided that I wanted to have my own slice of Paradise. I still travel between my home in France and Mexico so during my time away I would like to invite you to enjoy my lovely home in Playa. It has a wonderful feel, like living in a park by the most beautiful beach and sea that I know. It is peaceful and quiet yet close to everything within walking distance. I hope that you will love it as much as I do.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2013

Why The Owner chose Quintana Roo

There are many properties in Playa del Carmen however our property is located in Playacar, a gated area that is so convenient to the best beaches and to the town center that it not surprising that it is also the location of choice for most of the best hotels on the Caribbean Riviera Maya yet you will enjoy a quiet beach by just crossing the local access street.

What makes this apartment unique

Grab your towel and walk barefoot to the beach, you are that close!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent two weeks in this perfect property. Everything you need for a great vacation! Two blocks from amazing restaurants, great shopping and amazing people watching. The beach is steps away, and the condo had absolutely everything you could possibly need to make your holiday comfortable. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a worry free vacation in beautiful Playa del Carmen

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here. The condo was lovely - very spacious and clean. It had everything we needed and more. The front porch was perfect for relaxing with our morning coffee. The location was great, walking distance to the beach, 5th Ave, and restaurants. I especially appreciated the quiet location.

There was a very nice pool, which rarely had anyone in it. We would definitely stay here again.

Relaxing, our best stay yet...

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay, felt like we were at home. We were very happy to see that "we" had beach chairs and towels provided. Even some sunscreen left from previous stays. Best part, Sammy the cat strolling through a few times a day to see if anyone cannot finish their tacos. Beach was wonderful, skies were relaxing, friends were the best....oh yeah, and our margaritas we made at "home", THE BEST!

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From the time we stepped onto the verandah with its comfortable furniture and lovely view of the park, we knew that this place was special. Less like a holiday condo and more like the home of a kind friend who invited us to use their place, Casa Armonia was tastefully appointed, and thoughtfully stocked. We were 4 adults and we self-catered a number of our meals , so the completeness of the kitchen was a big hit! Every day we took our chairs and plush beach towels across the yard and street to the uncrowded white sand beach. Afternoons were spent by the lovely pool, which we frequently had to ourselves. It was not necessary to rent a car in order to enjoy the excitement of downtown activities. A short walk to the town center put us in the midst of great shopping and lively nightlife. For all its convenience, the Villas Arqueologicas location is quiet and residental; the grounds are manicured and the landscaping is lush. Taxi service was conveniently available for occasional errands and forays to Playa's north side for dinner. We would definitely return to this delightful property.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Great location, a few steps from the beach and a short walk to 5th avenue and about a 15 minute walk to Walmart and Mega for your grocery needs. The condo is comfortable, well decorated and maintained. There is a nice pool at the back of the condo which was very quiet and clean. We would definitely rent again if we ever visit Playa del Carmen in the future.
