Shared pool and large palapa in common area with shower and bathrooms.. House has wi-fi and flat screen in living room. The two bedrooms have private bathrooms. This is a walking town so my home is in the perfect location to walk to all the fine restaurants and enjoy the fine food that Playa has to offer. There are shops galore to meet all of your needs. There are many ecological day parks very close to my home . These can be enjoyed by all ages. We are surrounded by cenotes and archaeology ruins .

I email my guests on a regular basis and answer all questions they have the best I can. I offer to meet my guests at the bus terminal here in Playa so I can walk back to my home with them and point out landmarks so they have a good idea of where they exactly are. I like to give my guests their space but am available if needed. Some guests enjoy spending time with me while others, especially couples choose to be on their own which I respect.

Check In
  • Cecile was a warm and inviting hostess for our family. She was extremely responsive and helpful and communicated very promptly. The amenities provided (towels, beach towels, safe, housekeeping, water bottles and drinking water) made our stay extra comfortable. We were at the beach, pool and went into town for our meals every day (With a 17 month old in tow!) -- the house is in a great, safe location with easy access to all Playa has to offer. For those with young kids - the pool has a great shallow area perfect for kids to play in. The path to the beach is a bit difficult to navigate with kids (includes a couple flights of stone steps through the jungle and ruins), but isn't impossible. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • Cecile is a great hostess, very helpful and generous in giving her time and advice so you are able to best enjoy Playa Del Carmen. Her home is lovely, clean and the bedroom is quiet and comfortable. I have no hesitation in recommending this as a great place to stay, close to beach, bus depot, Ferry to Cozumel and of course 5th avenue.

  • Much has been said already here about Cecile and her fantastic home so I shall be brief. The hotel style perks such as in room safe, complimentary bottled water and house keeping services were a welcome surprise. Gorgeous private pool and lounge area steps away should not be underestimated for a relaxing afternoon if you feel beached out. Would definitely stay here again.

We look forward to staying with Cecile every year when we head back to Playa. She was so helpful, responsive and extremely professional. I would strongly recommend staying with Cecile on your next stay in Playa. We loved it!! Thanks so much, Cecile, for being a fantastic host.

    The accommodations were perfect. The room we had was very large. It had a nice, comfortable bed and the room had lots of natural light and privacy.

    We'd definitely go back!

  • TL;DR: next time I'm in Playa this is where I'll be staying!

    Staying at Cecile's is the closest you could get to actually owning a place in Playa. The house is located in a very quiet area but only 5 minutes to 5th avenue, in a gated and secure community - not that security is an issue in Playa. The beach is very close too, and even though we stayed at a different hotel for the second part of our trip (booked too late) we ended up going back to the same beach over and over: cleaner, wider, better sand and less people.
    You can come and go whenever you want, the house is beautiful and well maintained, with a nice patio and access to the pool. Cecile is a great host and was always happy to help and offer everything you need, you can borrow beach towels, coolers - you name it. My only regret is we didn't have time to stay and chat more because we planned most of our day trips out of playa during our stay at Cecile's.

I am a Canadian women fortunate enough to be living in what we all call "Our Paradise". I am only to happy to be able to share my home with tourists from all over the world who will come to love Playa del Carmen as myself. I have been a permanent resident of Playa since 2008 but have been coming here since 2006. I am very familiar with the area so can help you make the best choices in your tours and restaurants. I have friends in the tour industry that I wholeheartedly trust. Mind you keeping up with the ever changing restaurant scene can be a challenge. Always old ones closing and new ones opening. Playa is forever changing but change is good. From time to time my home can be very social due to fellow Canadians visiting their homes in the complex. We are respectful of my guests but thought I should fore worn you, haha! I will do everything in my power to make you comfortable in my home and I will hope you will leave with very good memories and want to return one day. FYI! My home is gay friendly as I accept the gay community.
