About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 2 Terraces

Casa Maya Playamar is a great luxury Villa/Condo, newly decorated with local flavor. It is located in a calm environment, ideal for family or anyone wishing a comfortable and restful vacation. Our 2 story Villa features 2 large bedrooms each with their private en suite bathrooms on the second floor, as well a boudoir with a Murphy bed and full bathroom on the first floor. The kitchen is fully equipped plus all the modern amenities. There are 2 private terraces – one nearby the master bedroom and the other, off the living room – both opening on the backyard and wooded area where you can hear and see beautiful tropical birds, littles animals as koaties, sereques, and sometimes monkeys. In the front, the condo has direct access to the garden, the pool and the palapa. The pool is 20 feet (6 meters) of the house, with direct view from the kitchen window, allowing to keep an eye on children. It can accommodate 6-8 people.

Our beautiful site is located in the tranquility of Playacar Phase II and surrounded by a golf course and an aviary named Xaman-Ha. It is a 8 minute walk from the 5th avenue (Commercial Street with multiple restaurants and shops) in the vibrant city of Playa del Carmen. It is located opposite Cozumel Island, on Riviera Maya, in the Yucatan Peninsula, in a 50 minute driving range by car from Cancun. It is also a 5 minute walk from the beautiful white sand beaches of the Caribbean Sea. Being located on the south side of Playacar, it is an easy drive to Puerto Aventuras to see Dolphins, to Akumal to swim with Turtles, to Tulum, the Mayand pyramids and many other places. However, a car is not necessary; there is a bus system for any destination.

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 Playa del Carmen

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 house is very well equiped, newly decorated with a mexican flavor. We have very good house managers taking good care of our guests and available anytime.

Lovely location

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.

Loved the house!

  • 5 of 5

Great location within easy walking distance to the beach and 5th ave. The house is charming, comfortable and very clean. We loved the city of Playa and enjoyed visiting nearby cenotes and the ruins at Tulum and Coba. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us! We hope to return soon!

Phenomenal Property

  • 4 of 5

Overall our stay at Giselle and Daniels Condo/Villa was great. The property was very well maintained overall and the photographs of the property are accurate. What few issues arose were promptly dealt with by Angela the property manager. She was very attentive and responded quickly to our concerns. I would recommend this property to friends or family. The only thing to be aware of is that access to the reef beach resort is limited to 4 guests only, we had 5 guests and found out the 5th guest would charged a $50 dollar resort fee. We declined and found other beach accommodations nearby.Other than that hick up everything else was incredible. We hope to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Hello, First of all thank you very much for your feed back, we are happy that your holidays have pleased you and that our house suits your needs. Regarding the Reef Beach Club, unfortunately, it is an independent entity over which we have no control. Access to their facility is still a ``privilege`` based on their rules, but while this is a great place, there are so many places you can get to the beaches without any constraint. Hoping to have the pleasure to receive you again, accept our best regards, Gisele and Daniel

Wonderful trip to Playa Del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Playa Del Carmen and really enjoyed staying at this rental. The price was very reasonable for the location and very comfortable for 4 people (1 teenager and 3 adults). I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Playa and would absolutely stay here again. The pool outside was fantastic! Great location, just a short walk to the beach and to 5th Avenue. The book from the owners which contained information and suggestions was very helpful. We loved Carboncitos restaurant the best (great happy hour). We also walked to Chedraui grocery store and bought some basics, which was really helpful. The only thing you really have to watch is not to exceed the A/C energy limit as that is a precious commodity in that area (I suggest asking questions as to what temperature/ how many hours running it is standard). Also, the Wi-Fi was a bit spotty at times (only during the day) but it was a good reason to not be on your device while on vacation! Looking forward to staying here again sometime!
