About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 1/2 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

'Playacar' is a private, gated-community, located just 40 miles south of Cancun International Airport in the Playa del Carmen Hotel Zone in the Mayan Riviera. The condo is on the 1st tee of the championship 18 hole Hard Rock golf club, designed by Robert Von Hagge and only a 3 minute walk to the golf club house.

This is a 1150 Sq./Ft. 1 Bedroom, 1 & 1/2 Bath, 1st floor (NO STAIRS) Poolside Condo. There is free wireless service for your computer use.

It has air conditioning and 2 televisions and FREE wi/fi. Sleeps 3 maximum.

Guests have the use of the Chac- Ha private pool (shown in photos) . Our beach access is directly directly across the street and 2 streets to the left of the Reef Playacar ( A 6 minute walk ) . We provide portable light weight beach chairs and beach towels for you. Just a 3 minute walk to the Hard Rock Golf Club House.

Only a 4 minute taxi or about 20 minute walk to downtown Playa del Carmen.

The condo sparkles with marble floors throughout and with a marble tub and shower in the bathroom. Each room has a ceiling fan and individually controlled air conditioning. The bedroom has 2 windows and a large bath (tub and shower). There are 2 sliding glass doors. One slider opens onto the large patio (overlooking the golf course & pool ), and the other slider opens to the pool. There is a wonderful view of the golf course and swimming pool from every room.

It is beautifully decorated with tropical, hand-made rattan furniture from Guadelajara. The hand-made Tiki Bar on the patio is a great place to view the lovely sunsets over the golf course.

There is a fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, and all appliances. Eat at the breakfast bar or dining table.

Clothes washer-dryer is off the kitchen in the separate 1/2 Bath with laundry room.

Two TV's make it possible to satisfy everyone's taste in entertainment, since with satellite, you have the ability to watch different channels (which you cannot do with most of the cable system here).

The condo is directly across the street from The Reef Playacar. All-inclusive (EAT AND DRINK) packages are available for a charge at the REEF.

Great Scuba Diving with The Reef Marina.

Extras: On site staff provides pool, gardening, and security services.

We also have a Poolside Studio for 2+ people for rent ( VRBO#345989).

If you want to sight-see - Mayan ruins, Sian Kan, cenotes, Xcaret, Tres Rios, snorkel at Xel-Ha or Akumal - there are guided tours or you may explore on your own.


Walking along 5th Playa del Carmen, you will see many shops and restaurants. There you can catch the Ferry to Cozumel for a day's visit.

There is also a wonderful Aviary located on Xaman-Ha, right here in Playacar.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Steve & Sue

Not only did we sample every beer in Playa, we tried every tequilla too! But we also made time to enjoy the snorkeling at Xel-Ha and the ruins at Tulum. A perfect combo!!!

Thanks for everything....your condo was wonderful - a great location and soooooooooo comfortable!

Love the TV..........don't have as many channels at home!

Hasta next time!

Wonderful stay, location and overall experience

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this location in April 2016 and we had an absolute wonderful time. Sue and Steve were fantastic to work with and we were delighted that they opened their home to us. The location is perfect! A very short cab right into Playa Del Carmen where we ventured out to eat most nights. A very short walk to the beach through the Reef Resort which we were provided with free access. We stayed here a week and having our own private condo was amazing, the pool was never busy and having access to an entire suite was great. We would love to stay here again!!

The entire experience was positive. The owners responded promptly and worked well with us during the booking. Upon arrival, their laison met us and ensured we were comfortably settled, even providing us with a mexican cel phone to contact her with any questions or concerns. The condo was comfortable, the pool was great, and the opportunity to use the Reef Playacar access and facilities was an added bonus. Will be back.

We had a wonderful and very comfortable stay at your condo. Everything was perfect, from the swimming pool to the great and quiet location of the condo, and to the access at the Hotel Reef Playacar accross the street. I will highly recommend your property to my family and friends. Thank you again.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Condo was great - quiet location but only a 20 min walk to all the action. Reef Club access was perfect - the staff there all asked us to say hi to "Grampa Steve". Service was excellent - response to any request was prompt. We joked regularly about the 2 meter walk from the condo to the pool! Doesn't get any better than that! If you want a real Mexican meal away from the tourist traps, we highly recommend either Fogon location. Went to Akumal, Tulum and Chakanaab Park on Cozumel.

Chac Ha, 1 Bedroom Condo in Playacar

  • 5 of 5

A big “Thank You” goes out to Steve and Susan for another fabulous vacation in Playa Del Carmen. We stayed in their condo, in Playacar, which provided us with all the amenities of home and more. There is a wonderful pool right out the front door, in which we spent most of our time. Our ten wonderful days of R&R was just what we needed. Thanks again to Steve and Susan for another great vacation!
