About George and Patricia Englesakis

We are a Canadian family from Nova Scotia currently living in northern Quebec. To escape the cold over the years we vacationed in many locations throughout the Caribbean but kept returning to Playa Del Carmen. During a stay at an All Inclusive vacation we fell in love with this area and decided this is where we"d like to spend our winters when we retire. In 2011 we bought a modern style condominium here in Playa and after 3 years we sold it in order to buy this true Mexican style villa .We are so happy with the house and its location we know you will enjoy it as much as we do !!

George and Patricia Englesakis purchased this house in 2015

Lovely house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great trip. This is a lovely private home, beautifully designed and maintained. Patricia is the most friendly and gracious host. Located in a secure gated development yet conveniently close to beach and town to enjoy all that Playa has to offer.

Nothing short of perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house (and the term house doesn't seem to do it justice) is absolutely stunning! The location is excellent, being a short walk to the beach and to restaurants and shops. Our kids (6 and 8) absolutely loved the private pool in the backyard where we ended up spending most of our time. Every detail of the house seems well thought out. Patricia was also incredibly helpful by guiding us to where ever we needed to go or whatever we needed. We will definitely be coming back here again!

Amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Whenever we visit Playa del Carmen we book this home. It's absolutely perfect for our needs. We like to cook and the kitchen is well equipped. The house is very clean and comfortable and the pool is perfect for an afternoon swim after the beach. The owner Patricia, is the nicest person you will ever meet and she goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great stay. You can't go wrong with this home.
