About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Escape to the idyllic, tropical paradise home of Casa de Sueno! Everyone tells us that our 1,300 square foot condo is situated in the PERFECT LOCATION for walking to restaurants, beaches and local transportation to explore the area.

* We have the Best of Both Worlds - the gated Playacar neighborhood for quiet and security yet close to 5th Avenue and beaches

* 2 Bikes included

* Our complex, Rosa Blanca, is small - just 12 units, very peaceful and quiet with beautiful gardens - and you will often be the only people at the large pool


* Large relaxing balcony with beautiful view

* Privacy of our balcony due to our top floor, corner unit location

* 2 Bikes

* Free WIFI

* Free Netflix movies and Amazon Prime games with our Firestick

* Free calls home to U.S./Canada with our Magic Jack phone

* Weber Charcoal Grill

* In-house Washer and Dryer

* Programmable safe for your valuables

* Portable chairs and umbrellas for the beach

* Fast-cooling A/C in every room


We are located at the very northern edge of Playacar Phase 2, a secure, elegant gated community on the south end of Playa del Carmen. You are an easy walking distance to everything in Playa - unlike many other condos in Playacar that are located much further away on the other side of the golf course and may require a taxi to walk to 5th Avenue. Our condo is just a 5 minute walk to the main guard gate and another 3 minutes to 5th Avenue and the Cozumel Ferry and beaches. We are also an easy walk to the main bus terminal in Playa, which can be used for airport transportation or tours to nearby Tulum, Akumal, Cancun, etc. We have never needed a car with all this great transportation and activities close by.


We know you’ll enjoy your time out on the balcony with the relaxing pool and golf course view of the 13th fairway - the 'signature hole of this amazing golf course! While there you can check your emails and upload vacation pictures for the folks back home with our Free WiFi. The large tree to the side of our balcony adds privacy and does a great job of keeping it cool and shady, as well as attracting beautiful tropical birds to enjoy during your stay. You will also have visits from the agouti in the garden, as well as the green iguanas which may even climb the tree near the balcony to greet you!

The spacious condo is laid out more like a house than a typical condo, which is extra nice if you are traveling with two couples or kids. There is plenty of space to spread out on our leather couch and club chairs to relax with family and friends. Or you might take a break from the sun to enjoy a movie on one of the Flat Screen TVs from the Satellite, DVD Player or our Netflix account. The spaciousness of the kitchen and living areas make it a great condo for entertaining.

Sliding doors in each bedroom open out to small balconies that let in plenty of light and overlook the picturesque street. They also help pull cool breezes through the condo when you want the outside feel.


We invite you to read the comments from our previous guests. We strive to provide each guest with a memorable vacation, and I think our reviews will testify to those efforts. We truly love sharing our home with others.

We provide amenities that we ourselves enjoy. You can take the beach umbrellas and chairs we provide and chill out at the waters' edge. The sling backpacks provided make taking along 4 beach chairs and the umbrellas a breeze. Add the portable cooler, and a book or two, and you are set for a relaxing day!

You will be well cared for in our home. Our managers are available 24/7 to solve any problem, and we offer a Free Concierge Service for our guests - a professional and friendly concierge is available to meet with you and make restaurant recommendations, book personal tours and activities, or simply give you advice for your perfect vacation. Much more trustworthy and better than relying on the offers on the street or the beach! Our renters tell us this made a real difference for them. We also provide a notebook of suggestions and information about the area, as well as an email version that will help you prepare for your trip. And we are available by phone and email as well to answer all your questions and guide you to make the most of the time you have to enjoy.

Our renters receive a guide from us detailing transportation details and our favorite tips and activities collected from our previous visits. And we would be happy to talk with you and give you any advice or answer any questions that you might have to help make this the trip you will always remember!

About Laurie, Owner

We have been traveling to Mexico for more than fifteen years and have fallen in love with the culture and the people we have met on our travels. It was a dream of ours to own our piece of paradise, and in October of 2008 we finally did it! It's great to be within walking distance of beaches, restaurants and shopping, yet located in the peaceful gated community of Playcar. We love sharing it with others! Laurie and Mark, Beaumont, Texas

Laurie, Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Why Laurie, Owner chose Playa del Carmen

Once we decided on Playa del Carmen for our vacation home, we wanted a place that was an easy walk to everything we love - 5th Avenue restaurants, beaches, shopping, bus station for tours, etc. Casa de Sueno is uniquely situated on the most northern edge of the Playacar neighborhood, which means that all of the fun activities of 5th Avenue are within an easy walking distance, yet we still enjoy the peacefulness and safety of our gated community. There were many nice properties for us to choose from, but location was key to us. We couldn't be happier with our home.

What makes this condo unique

Unlike many condo vacation rentals in the area, the layout of ours is quite unique. Many other condos are long and narrow, to maximize the number of units with a small balcony view. We enjoy a wide, spacious living area with a large living/kitchen/dining area open to the double size balcony. Two couples or a family staying with us will never feel like you are living on top of each other. We visit our home often, and provide for our guests the same amenities that we enjoy while we are there - so no need to pack the hairdryer, pool floats or beach towels. We love sharing our new home and Playa del Carmen with others and want you to have the vacation you've dreamed of!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 3rd stay at Casa de Sueno. Mark and Laurie have done a great job in preparing a vacation spot so much like Home. Moskito staff is awesome - Laura, Daisy, Alfredo. Everything is always in great shape. The other folks that stay in this complex for longer terms are friendly and helpful. Many improvements to the area – new guardhouse, the building by the school finally has tenants, and a restaurant! And, as always, the birds and the animals come around looking for treats!

Summarizing condo only, I was very please with it. Comfortable, roomy, nice bed, great kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

Avoided cold in Playa was fabulous! Property was very nice. Kitchen was well equipped (big priority for me). Pool was lovely but really too cold to use because of chilly nights. We were on 3rd floor and stairs were a real problem for 3 seniors. We were really too far from town and had to walk everywhere. Not a problem for younger vacationers but between stairs and long walk to town, it was difficult. We had a car but traffic so horrible we couldn't really drive into town and finding parking space impossible! Younger, more mobile renters will love this property..

Owner's Response: Lyn, I am so glad that you enjoyed the condo. I don't believe that we have ever had three guests in their 70's staying in our home, but I can understand that you would not enjoy two flights of stairs - it's unfortunate that you could not find a first floor unit for your trip. I am surprised that you felt that it was long walk to town, as our other guests LOVE our location, and even mention it in their reviews as one of their favorite things about the condo! It's just an 8 minute walk to 5th Avenue so we never advise guests to rent cars in Playa. Taxi's are plentiful and easy to use in town, if needed, and rental cars are only helpful if you are leaving the city to explore the areas outside of town. Thank you for staying with us and for the nice compliments!

Clean, well-equppped condo with a great location and awesome pool.

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect spot to enjoy Playa. It is close to the beach and all the fun, food and drink the city has to offer. Both the owner and the property management company were friendly and so responsive. Such a terrific guide book in the condo that tells you all you need to know. We used the pass to the Reef Club and had a blast. I can't say enough good things. I want to go back right now...

Great location, beautiful condo and pool.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this property and hope to stay here again. The condo is beautiful and very well stocked with anything and everything you could need for a beach vacation. The pool is amazing and was never crowded. All of the attractions of the 5th Ave area are a short walk. We walked in and around every day with a 3 year old and a 6 year old without any problems. Lastly, we had a great experience with the owners and property manager. Everyone was extremely helpful and attentive. If you stay here, read the binder the owners put together. It has so much great information about the area.

Lovely time & perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, spacious and conveniently located. We appreciated having a full jug of drinking water ready to use. The property managers were professional and did a great job showing us how everything worked. The information binder was a fabulous resource and I'm sure a lot of time went into organizing it - you made our trip easier and fun, thank you!

The neighbours were very quiet and we enjoyed the serene place to come home to each evening after full days at the beach, snorkeling, shopping, visiting restaurants etc. We enjoyed having the beach towels, sand toys, chairs and bags to use - the Caddy Sack, what an amazing contraption!

We enjoyed exploring the Playacar development on foot, as we are joggers, and the nice sidewalks made for a great running track, the neighbourhood is beautiful. Be mindful of pedestrian crosswalks, which are painted and slippery when wet.

Our 2 kids were able to handle the walk into Playa del Carmen 2x a day easily. We took advantage of being so close to the ferry and enjoyed a day trip over to Cozumel.

Thanks for the awesome stay!

Wonderful place, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful condo!!! We were a little nervous about the travel alerts but NEVER felt uncomfortable or unsafe in this beautiful gated community! The owner, Laurie, is beyond conscientious and has a binder in the unit that has EVERYTHING you will ever need for reference on the area. She even has 3/5 index cards of detailed directions in Spanish to give to cab drivers! So helpful!!! In the unit there is a magic jack phone that provides free long distance to the States. We had left a sick dog behind and were able to check in with the dog sitter at no cost! This was such a comfort!! My daughter and I are runners and there is a bike/walking path that surrounds the entire community which is about five miles. The neighborhood is beautifully landscaped and properties very well kept we also rode the nice bikes around these paths. I loved staying here! I can't say enough about how lovely it is and did I mention private? This is a 12 unit property and it was so quiet and we had the pool to ourselves. We were so comfortable here in this very clean, well maintained, updated and finely decorated condo. All the comforts you need electronically too... Great WIFI!!! Lots of games and extras. One rainy day we had a family monopoly game! This property is exactly as the owner has described it. Only good surprises like the chilled plastic glasses in the freezer!! Awesome place!!!

Superb Location in Playa Del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Sueno is perfectly situated for enjoying both the excitement of 5th Ave. and the natural beauty of the area. It is just a short stroll to the beautiful beach and the amazing restaurants and shopping of Playa del Carmen but situated in the most beautiful tropical atmosphere imaginable. The casa is spacious and beautifully decorated and contains all the little things (beach towels and chairs, bikes, kitchen, laundry and bath supplies) that make a condo vacation enjoyable. The owners and local property manager were very helpful all through the planning of our vacation and we can't say enough good things about them. My wife, two daughters and I have traveled extensively and rate Casa de Sueno right at the top of our list of favorite lodgings. We can't wait to go back!
