About Gisele Proulx
We are a retired couple leaving in Quebec, Canada. We travelled in many countries around the world before falling in love with Mexico and Playa del Carmen. We enjoy our retirement, having good time with friends and family, particularly our two grandsons. We have the privilege to spend three to four months a year in our comfortable villa. For the rest of the year, it is our pleasure to open our house to guests all around the world. We are speaking French, English and Spanish.
Gisele Proulx purchased this House in 2013
Why Gisele Proulx chose Playacar Fase II
We chose the house because it is at walking distance to everything: beaches, golf courts, diving and all the accommodations of Playa del Carmen. It is located in a quiet and safe environment but close to the vibrant life of Playa del Carmen. We are part of a 16 houses site, quiet place, ideal for couple or families. We pretend to have one of the best spot, in front of the pool and with a private terrace in the back facing the jungle.
What makes this House unique
We have a safe and clean environment with all the commodities. The villa is very well equiped, newly decorated with a mexican flavor. It is located just in front of the garden/pool and has 2 private terraces opening on the backyard and wooden area. Our sympathetic manager takes good care of our guests and is available anytime during your stay..

Condo was perfect for six people. Had everything we needed. Kitchen is a little small for large meal prep, but that didn’t bother us. Location right by pool was nice! Quiet complex, friendly neighbors and access to Reef Resort down the street. Easy walk to 5th Ave. area.
Great condo for a good price. Nice and secluded at night so no noise. We felt absolutely safe inside Playacar. Pool was nice to cool off in after a day of diving or just getting around Playa. Well stocked if you prefer to cook a meal or only a 20 min walk to the restaurants on 5th. I would definitely stay here again.
Thanks Jim for the review. You are definitively welcome to come back.
Defining the unit as luxurious is stretching it a little
the property was probably quite a statement in its day but it is in desperate need of some renovations. the kitchen is extremely outdated the fridge is less than efficient although I would have to say the selection of pots pans dishes and sharp knives was fantastic. the master suite is far from luxurious your soaker tub is giant I don't think anybody's used it in years there's definitely not enough hot water to fill the tub and use it as it was designed for its just a total waste of space... love the deck off the master bedroom enjoyed coffee out there ....quite impressed with how well the air conditioning works that's for sure ....the two queen beds in the second bedroom are as hard as a rock might be good for some people but most likely not ... The neighborhood location is perfect the front door and the proximity to the pool perfrct the jungle out the back makes this a very nice peaceful place to stay ...I'm not unhappy with our stay I'm just don't think that its truly luxurious ...... For the price it definitely needs some change first the beds need to go
Hi Rodney, Thank you for your comments and feedback! It is great to know that overall you enjoyed your stay at Casa Maya Playamar. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the house. Grading standards here in Mexico are quite different than in the US or Canada. Our kitchen appliances are new and modern and work perfectly. The photos on the website reflect exactly what we offer and our prices are more than competitive considering you booked the busiest and most expensive week of the year.

Excellent Location and service
We had a wonderful experience with our family (2 parents and 2 young adults). The location was excellent, close to everything (15 minutes walking to the 5th avenue with restaurants, stores, etc). However, you could chose to stay by the pool and relax or go to the beach (15 minutes walk as well). The house was very comfortable for 4 adults and very clean as well. Gisèle was quick to answer your mails if you had any questions. However, a helpful binder in the house was available for you to get acquainted with the house and the area. I would recommend it without hesitation.
Thank you very much for your comments. It is great to know that you had such a good time in our house. We very much hope to welcome you back sometime soon! Kind regards
It was perfect!
Our group had a wonderful time at the condo . It was very comfortable with everything we needed . Being kid friendly was a bonus since the kids could run and play in safe surroundings
This is a beautiful villa overlooking the pool at the front and a quiet, private patio at the back and we have had a very comfortable stay. It is just a short walk to the shops, restaurants and bars.
Playacar is a residential quarter of Playa del Carmen, very quiet, surrounding the golf, protected by barriers and security guards (gated community), and at 8-10 minutes from the beach and downtown.
