CASA LAKSHMI Welcomes you to the caribbean! Comfortable, full equipped and very nice private studio with independant entrance on 5th. Avenue, one block from the beach. Friendly and accomodating hosts. Come to enjoy paradise . Pet friendly

The studio is located on 5th avenue. Inside is cozy, comfortable and fully equipped. It has its own private bathroom, with hot water shower. A/A with an extra cost of 6 dll for 8hr or 10 dll for more than 8 hr. Totally independent from the house, with its own entrance. Just across the street you have the lush tropical vegetation and a five minute walk will take you to the beautiful caribbean beach.

We are very heplfull and friendly. The interaction with our guests is as much as the guest wants or needs. We will not invade your space.

CASA LAKSHMI is located where you can still enjoy Playas nature, tranquility and breath taking beaches. A 10 to 15 min. walk away from the busy night life, beach clubes, cafes and high end boutiques and restaurants.

Just five blocks from the studio, you will find a typical mexican market, and all around smaller local stores. Taxis are available one block away on 10th. ave. The prices can vary between 25 to 50 pesos depending where you are going in town. The best tranportation from the airport is to take the ADO bus to Playa, that costs around 11 UDS.

  • Simple but comfortable and very creatively and nicely decorated room in northern Playa. Claudette (the mother) was very nice and accommodating. Felt very safe and beach is approx a 5 minute walk/about 2-3 blocks away. We were only there on a Sunday and there were a lot of locals enjoying the sea. My friend and I walked to the touristy part of 5th Avenue and loved being there. Taxi is only 30 pesos (approx $2.50 USD) one way. Would recommend this place if you don't mind being further away from the touristy part of PDC and/or if you are on a budget and/or if you want to experience the local vibe.

  • Well, Romy is just one of the nicest women I think I have ever met. Such a great aura to her, bubbly, fun, straight to the point. A total babe. :)
    The studio was lovely, loved how it was decorated and I really felt comfortable during my stay a the studio. If you are staying here with someone, I hope you are close to that person as the bathroom situation is a little 'intimate' as there is no door. It is super close to the beach, the entrance near Romy's is very quiet and only really has Mexican families that end which was perfect for me and my friend. When we did go to the other end it was very crowded and full of tourists. Didn't really feel like Mexico at all. Playa Del Carmen wasn't my favourite place in Mexico and has no reflection on Romy's place. Just a little too touristic.

  • Although I only had the pleasure of meeting Romy's mom (and for a few minutes at a time), I can tell that they are good folks.

    The room is clean and very close to the public beach access of the wonderful Caribbean. Although to get to 5th Avenue's trendy area you'll need to catch a taxi or rent a car (I took the latter as many sights are quite away).

    Although if you share the room, better be with someone you are very intimate, as the bathroom lacks a door, with the obvious consequences of it.

    Also, even though the AC you can see in the picture has an extra charge for its use, Romy and her mom provide potent free-to-use fans. Even when outside was blazing hot, I slept comfortably under the breeze of these fans.

    Also they provide a kitchenette and all the free water you want. Definitely would stay here again.

    Thanks again for sharing your house!

  • Romy and her mom were excellent hosts! Their studio was just what we needed. It was clean, plenty of space for 2 people, and was within walking distance of everything (beach, 5th avenue, restaurants, etc.) They were very accommodating and helpful with any questions we had. I would definitely recommend staying at their lovely studio on the beach!

  • Romy and her mom are the best, they are loving and helpfull. The studio has everything you need and the installed an aircondition recently, which I loved, because it it pretty hot out there. The beach is a 2 min walk, but if you want to go to the centre, you better take a taxi, which are all over the place. But make sure you don't get ripped off. 40 pesos is a genereus amount. I would recommand the place, Miriam

  • I had an amazing time staying with Romy and her mother in this terrific studio villa. The location is close enough to the main strip and Cozumel ferry to be very convenient, but far enough away to be quiet and restful.

    The space also provides easy access to the beach and a more authentic Mexican experience. Romy and Claudette were ideal hosts and I will never forget their kindness, laughter, and hospitality.

  • Romy's place is great! The studio is within walking distance of the beach. This is a great rental for value and privacy. The neighbourhood is local and interesting. You can walk to the tourist centre or take a short taxi ride there. The studio apartment provided all the comforts I needed. The hosts are friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed my stay. I would love to return and highly recommend this place! Thank you so much for everything!

  • A little tricky to find without a data connection on our phones so sort out directions before you get there! Wonderful hosts. A very charming and simple crash pad for your stay in Playa. Not the best neighborhood, but a quick walk to anything you'd wanna do in PDC. Mosquitos were annoying. Could definitely use a net or a strong fan over the bed.

  • Everything was great, the location is good for those who want to keep distance from crowds on the beach but still is in 7-10 walk from restaurants on 5ta ave. That's what I really loved. Drinking water was provided by the thoughtful owners. The studio is small but cosy, suits more couples than friends. Romy and her mom are such nice and kind people, they also gave us lots of advicen on taxi rates and tulum beaches which was very helpful! I will recommend ths place to all of my friends.
