The easiest place you might ever stay.
About Scottie Watson
We are well-traveled retirees who chose to live In Playa del Carmen because you can swim in the ocean even in January. Scottie is originally from Minneapols and Jim from Chicago. We love to sail our Hobie Cat and enjoy getting together with friends for dinners from casual to gourmet! This is a very easy place to live with a quality lifestyle few places offer.
Scottie Watson purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Scottie Watson chose Zazil-ha
We chose The Elements because it is the closest privately held beachfront condo to the city center. We also chose this based on the builder's good reputation. Indeed, it did turn out very well and is I beautifully maintained to keep it the premier property we hoped it would be.
What makes this Condo unique
We wanted a poolside condo that had easy-in/easy-out access with no long halls or steps to navigate. We added our own very high end kitchen and beautiful outdoor space since that is where we are most of the time. The beach club now has a great drink and food service at affordable prices for the use of The Elements and their guests. The two outdoor jacuzzis are also enjoyed by many guests.

My husband and 2 adult daughters just returned from a second spring vacation at the Elements unit GH4. We have used VRBO for multiple trips to the area over the past 4 years. The Elements GH4 is the only one we have used multiple times. I guess the need to try something new is trumped by the perfect comfort found here. When not at the pool, beach or walking 5th Ave we relaxed on the patio. My husband at the grill, one daughter swinging in the hammock, another reading on the sofa. I often lingered pool side in a chase lounge just a few feet away. We walked the beach daily: To the north for solitude, romance, a beautiful cenote and the best fish tacos ever. To the south to people watch amid the many locals and tourists. We walked 5th Ave in the evenings for delicious gelato and souvenirs. Our rental car was handy for exploring and for trips to the Mega for groceries. We loved the fresh ceviche from Mega. No question about it, we would use this rental again.
Thanks for taking the time to write this wonderful review. We consider out guests as friends of sort and take great care to help that their time here is the best possible. I smiled as you described your daughters in hammock and outdoor sofa plus dad at the grill .....I have enjoyed that same "all is well with the world" moment as well.
You are always most welcome here at CocoLuna!
Our family of 5 stayed at this condo over the Christmas holiday and had a wonderful time. We were just steps from the very clean pool and just a few more steps from the beach. We had a rental car but other than trips to Mayan ruins and cenotes, we were able to walk to many nearby places to eat and shop. My husband went to a fruiteria for fresh squeezed juice every morning (we really miss that) and pastries on 5th Ave. There is a 7-11 right on the corner if anything is needed in a pinch. There is also a great Italian restaurant just a few steps away. We ate out alot on 5th Ave but also cooked 3 or 4 dinners to eat on the patio overlooking the pool and beach. Thanks for having so much on hand for the meals. I loved having a washer and dryer at our disposal right off the kitchen. There was security and we felt very safe and secure. The beds were awesome! So comfortable! Carla came and spent about an hour talking with us and gave us some really great tips and suggestions as to what we might want to see and do. She's very helpful and friendly and when we just mentioned in passing that we had run out of foil when using the grill, she dropped some by the next day. There was very convenient parking close to the condo and everyone was very friendly and helpful who worked there. We really appreciated the space that we had to spread out as compared to a hotel room as the youngest of our family of 5 is 18. This is our second booking through vrbo and it is so much better than a hotel room! Thank you so much to Scottie and Jim for making your place available for us. The email we recieved with 5 pages of info about the condo and area was a great help too and very much appreciated. The condo is beautiful and we felt right at home. The only way our trip could have been better is if we didn't have to leave and come home to -10F temps!
Thank you so much for the great review. People here found you all so interesting. I was hoping it would be a place to enjoy with happy memories as your family is growing up. I understand how quickly they start to go their own way.
We appreciate very much the time and effort to write this. I will share it with Carla.
We stayed at Scottie apartment for 7 nights and was just great. The apartment had everything we need and more! We are very greatfull because our vacactions were perfect! Thankyou Scottie...looking forward to return!
great condo. great location and complex. so so decor.
this was a great space in a great condo complex that boasts a wonderful pool, grounds and fitness studio. the location was a bit off the main commercial corridor, which was a positive except for the 1/2 mile walk home after a late dinner and sunny day at the beach. the only issue with the condo was its decor, which seemed too home-spun and cluttered for a vacation retreat where we would have preferred decor that is more neutral and modern.
Another fabulous stay at Coco Luna! Even better than last year with the new kitchen .
I love coming to your place on my annual trek to Playa. Every year is better than the last. The expanded menu at the beach club made for lazy days at the beach and the great kitchen allowed us to actually make a meal if we so chose. The new configuration in the back bedroom made it even more inviting. Thank you for providing the perfect beach place for a fabulous week in Playa. Can't wait until next time!
My husband and I were looking for a relaxing peaceful getaway and Coca Luna was absolutely perfect for us! We love to go out for lunch but stay in and cook on the grill for dinner and this condo was perfect. The kitchen was well stocked with all the essentials. Also the location of the condo is great just steps away from the beautiful pool and beach. Scottie and Jim are gracious hosts and Carla the property manager was so helpful to answer any questions we had about restaurants, spas, etc. It was a great week! It was our first visit to Playa del Carmen and we would definitely go back and hopefully stay at Coca Luna.
Thanks for the kind review Newana. You were also perfect guests.
We work hard to keep our home up to date and well stocked for other foodies like ourselves.
