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

Wonderful vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year renting at this location. Great for families and friends. We like the location close to the beach and Fifth ave where lots of restaurants and shops. My husband and I love Playa del Carmen and will be returning with a new group of friends.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family. Patricia was a perfect host. The house filled all of our picky needs (we stay in Homeaway homes all over the Caribbean). The house is well maintained and is in a perfect location. So easy to walk to 5th avenue and despite renting a car we really did not need it. We have already discussed returning to this great villa.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to Mexico before my wife and myself were not really sure what to expect but this accommodation was perfect.

The house is large and spacious with loads of room for the two of us to wander around to our hearts content, there is also a gorgeous swimming pool to cool off in when the weather gets too hot.

We did have a small problem with one the bedroom AC units but Patricia had the problem fixed mucho rapido.

On the subject of the owner Patricia she is one the nicest people we have ever met and there is nothing which is too much trouble for her to handle, if you get the chance have a chat with her she is such good company.

All in all this a lovely place to stay and as mentioned before you get a daily visit from the local iguanas which also adds to the fun of the place.

Don't take our weeks next year!

  • 5 of 5

We're hesitant to write a review only because we're scared that everyone will start to book with Patrica and it will be hard for us to reserve our time with her next year. The place was AMAZING and Patrica was a wonderful host. The house is fantastic and the location couldn't be more convenient. You're literally 2 minutes from 5th avenue and the beach. The house is very private and peaceful. I read by the pool all day (accompanied by the giant iguanas.... they like to eat the hibiscus flowers) and my husband played golf. This was one of the best vacations we've ever taken. Huge thanks to Pat, we'll definitely be back.
