La Chaya, Stunning 3BR Beach Villa w/Pool

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bath, private garden with pool, short walk to beach

Villa la Chaya is a splendid three-story, three bedroom newly renovated French style beach retreat situated on a quiet block in the exclusive enclave of Playacar Fase I. This tropical oasis offers rare privacy as you step beyond the charming wooden gate set in a palm-fringed stone wall. La Chaya is just steps from the best beach in Playa del Carmen – one of the most beautiful in the world. A blend of modern and traditional sensibilities, the home was designed to capture the Caribbean breeze with French doors and windows that invite the outside in.

The third floor master seduces with stunning sea views from both the bed and master veranda. The second floor bedrooms boast gorgeous green views and the gallery opens onto a terrace high in the trees. Take a seat and watch the resident iguana climb to his sunny perch as parrots cackle and zoom overhead.

Cooking with the wide array of fresh, local ingredients is inspirational. The fully-equipped kitchen opens onto its own patio for al fresco dining and barbequing on the handmade ceramic tile grill.

Stay in touch with high speed WIFI, plug in your iPod to enjoy your tunes or enjoy a SKY TV, Netflix or a Bluray film on the new 50' screen.

Stroll or ride a house bike to town though the verdant archeological parks of Fase I. Playa del Carmen, long an international hub, is replete with world-class restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Playa is also a great jumping off point for exploring all the Yucatan has to offer. Whether you travel further afield or blissfully lounge on the beach, it’s all good. At the end of the day, at the end of the road, you’ll come home to your Mexican Shangri-La.

Villa la Chaya lived up to all of our expectations! The home is decorated beautifully, its tranquil feel helps you get into vacation mode right away. Located in a beautiful gated neighborhood, with a less than a 5min walk to a great, non-crowded beach. If you want to head to Playa's popular 5th ave, you are only a 15 min walk or 4min cab ride away. We were able to prepare wonderful meals in the well equipped kitchen, and you can arrange to have meals prepared for you as well. Everything was so convenient. What a great location! Steve and Jane have done a great job making sure anything you need is right at your fingertips. Love this property, we can't wait to get back!

This retreat is an escape into luxury, beauty, comfort, creativity, joy and serenity. The service was nothing short of excellent. My only complaint is that we had to leave.

Beautiful, well maintained, sophisticated and decorated with attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

The house is two blocks away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. The neighbourhood is a gated community with a lot a beautiful homes. The house is very comfortable. The furniture and decor have been chosen with care giving a sense of comfort and beauty. The kitchen is very well equipped , better than what I have seen in rental homes in the past. This allowed us to cook delicious meals with ease. Claudia, the manager, is very professional, helpful and easy to reach in case you need help with something related to the property. The woman in charge of cleaning the house and changing linens and towels keeps everything sparkling clean. And last, but not least, the person who cooked for us prepared delicious breakfast and lunch. Our stay without such great food would not have been as pleasant.

This property is so beautiful and in such great condition that we are definitely considering going back. We visit the area once a year and Villa La Chaya was a great gem to discover.

Thank you Steve for creating such a beautiful place for travellers like us to enjoy.

Fun Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

2 families flew into Cancun from Denver in late October. Ricardo (the driver) was waiting for us outside if the airport and took the 7 of us Villa La Chaya with a stop at the Walmart for food and liquor. What a perfect vacation home! The interior is beautifully decorated. The house is tucked away in a lush garden in a gated neighborhood just steps from the beach. The kids immediately jumped into the private pool. Here is a bonus.. You can watch the kids swim from the living room and relax in the air conditioning and watch satellite TV. Loved it! The house is stocked with all the utensils you might need to cook a meal, hang out at the beach, listen to your music, or just lounge around. Plus, we hired a private chef to cook us a meal at the house one evening. It was delicious and well worth it to dine in. The restaurants in Playa are great as well. It takes about 15 minutes to get to town by foot. We walked in numerous times with 3 kids under 9. They only complained a little. :) Just outside the main gate is a Hertz, we rented a van for a few days and went to Akumal to swim with the turtles. It was amazing. There is a welcoming committee of kitties who keep the bugs away and love attention and treats. The male kitty followed us to the beach one afternoon and watched us as we walked on the beach toward town. I would definitely recommend this house to anybody wanting to get away to the beautiful beaches of Playa Del Carmen. We had such a good time. Thanks Steve and Jane for renting us your beautiful home!

La Chaya the perfect Playa home base

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to stay at Villa La Chaya on a wonderful vacation/reuniting with college girl friends and their spouses. I see other reviews cover Ricardo he is perfect.From the charming front gate of La Chaya, to the perfect plunge pool, I found the decor so clean and calming, I wish I could have stayed more than the week. Beautiful, gardens, fabulous bed rooms, a block from the beach. I felt so safe everywhere we went. We all love to cook and found the fish market and grocery store, the well equipt kitchen was a pleasure to work in and the fresh seafood and fruit and veg were inspiring as ingredients. One night we had the grilled chickens that can be bought in town, it was delicious, and an easy alternative to going out. We did two day trips, one to Cozumel, we did rent a car there and drove to the beautiful far side of the island, we like to explore. The ferry price and the car were reasonable and all the vendors were friendly and gave us good information. Another day we rented a car and drove to the maya ruin Ek Balam, and stopped in the quaint town of Valladolid, where we had a wonderful lunch of local specialties. A bit of night life in town, the Cuban dance club is vibrant and fun to watch even if you don't dance. One friend bought a wonderful painting from an artist on the main drag. Everyday sunrise walks on the beach, a cooler of snacks and beer under the umbrella on the beach till sun set. Villa La Chaya, is the perfect setting,tropical outside, sleek and sophisticated interiors. In a development of beautiful homes. A quick walk to beach or into town, I highly recommend. Villa La Chaya is a Playa gem to be savored.

Frozen North

A great place to experience Playa

  • 5 of 5

My family (kids 21 and 17) were met by Ricardo at the airport. He runs a car service recommended by the owners and is a great way to get there and back. There is a Hertz within walking distance for the one day we rented a car to go to Tulum. Loved the house and decor, the proximity to the beach and the quiet, safe streets. The beach is managed so that there are no vendors or salespeople to bother you. Very peacefull and a perfect beach for kids. The kitchen was great for preparing the wonderful produce available in town. Need another kilo of limes? of course you do! take a bike and run to the fruit shop, or stuff your backpack with some of the best grilled whole chickens I have had and bring them back still piping hot. You can chose your own adventure or just relax on the beach. This was our first trip to this part of Mexico and we will be back. If it is available, we will return to Villa la Chaya and would recommend it to you.
