This is a beautiful spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo located in the gated golf course community of Playacar, Phase 2. This exclusive and private development of only 12 units, is called " Rosa Blanca ", and there is 24 hours security in this gated Playacar community. You won't need a car, as it's a safe and easy walk, day or night, to 5th Avenue, down town Playa, and of course the beach. In almost no time at all, you can grab a cab for 6 bucks for a 2 minute drive to town.
The condo is situated on the ground floor in front of the pool with a private terrace, and the units are completely surrounded by gardens. You are looking out at one of the largest and most beautiful swimming pools in Playa del Carmen. The condo is full of natural light with fresh breezes flowing in from the adjacent golf course. We have recently installed quiet energy saving inverter type high air conditioning and each room is equipped with cool quiet air. The master bedroom offers a beautiful ensuite bathroom, king size bed, and a safe for your valubles. A fully equipped kitchen with all the amenities you need if you want to cut your expenses, and fix a meal at home. The Chedraui (grocery store) is close by.
Lounge by the pool sipping a margarita, and if you need another, or want to make an expresso, it's just steps away to the kitchen. Rosa Blanca offers you not only comfort, but also peace and privacy. The Condo has another full bathroom, and another spacious bedroom with a Queen and Twin bed. Your condo also has a utility/storage room with a modern new washer and dryer for your own private use. There is also a clothes dryer rack for air drying swim suits, towels, etc.
The condo is designed with a very wide living /dining area, and a covered terrace overlooking the swimming pool if you want to take a break out of the sun.

Other Things to Note
We have a guest book in the condo with lots of information and recommendations
The are vary basic house rules here:
1. Outside there are sunbeds that you can use while enjoying the pool. Pool is never over crowded, as we take pride in our private complex of only 12 units !
2. Please no crystal ware or bottles inside the pool. If someone were to break a glass in the pool, we would have to drain the pool.
3 Swimming pool hours are from 8 am until 10 pm.
4. A 50 dollar cleaning fee will be added to the total price.
5. No smoking inside the condo. If you want you can smoke outside.
6. If you barbeque, please make sure you do it outside of the patio, as the smoke stains the patio ceiling.
7. Make sure you have a lot of fun!
We have had a super time in the condo in december 2014. Andrew and Diane is very easy to communicate with, they answer e-mails quickly, send directions how to find the condo and mails to ensure we were okay! There is a contact on site, the manager Beatirz, so if you had any questions she was very kind and eager to help!
The condo has a good position close to beach and 5th avenue and a beautiful swimmingpool. the condo it selv has a good size and furnished well. We could have used some ekstra comfortale chairs on the terrace, so that we could all sit there and enjoy the beautiful garden and surrondings. We hope to be back!
This was our second stay at A3 Condominium Rosablanca, we have been staying for a month at a time. Notably this recent trip some big upgrades had been done to the condo making it that much better. We will most definitely return in the future. The owners are excellent to deal with, the on-site manager is a sweetheart and the other condo owners treat us like old friends. You can't go wrong staying at Rosablanca Condos.
Andrew and Diane were a delight- they made everything very easy for us and were easily accessible by email. They had tonnes of good tips about things to do in town.
Condo was nice- spacious and just the right distance away from town.. about a 15 minute stroll.
We enjoyed our month in this condo and are returning for another month very soon. The owners are on top of everything and were of great assistance for all of our needs. We highly recommend renting from these owners. Thanks Andy, you are the best.
Perfect location! This is our second year staying at this condo. My wife and daughter LOVE staying here. Playacar is a private, gated, community within short walking distance of Playa del Carmen center. Beach, (8 minutes). Beginning of 5th ave, (6) mins. Supermarket and Walmart (20 min) walking. The beach we walk to from here is private, large and gorgeous! The pool is certainly much larger than average for a private condo building and manicured / maintained beautifully by the gardener daily. All in all this condo is an incredible bargain. We will book again. Thank you Andy and Diane. See you next year!
The condo at Rosa Blanca exceeded our expectations. It was very clean, airy, bright, and perfectly located a beautiful 10 minute walk from the center of town. The neighborhood is gorgeous, lush with vegetation, and very quiet and safe at night.
And the pool... the pool! The perfect spot to relax and take a dip, and just 10 steps from your door! You can enjoy the sun or find a shady spot in the yard which is beautifully landscaped and well maintained, every day. And it's beautifully lit at night.
It was a major plus to have the laundry on site, and there were several beach towels for use as well.
Loved the filtered water jug with spout in the kitchen - just filled our own smaller bottles to use for the day.
And the king sized bed was incredibly comfortable. The A/C was great, but note it's only in this one bedroom. The rest of the house gets a nice cross breeze.
Only real complaint - the hot water in the showers ran out after 10 minutes. Maybe it's a technical issue that can be fixed!
We are already dreaming of returning to Playa del Carmen, and certainly Rosa Blanca.
Very enjoyable stay. Good location, clean dwelling, nice pool, pleasant grounds, easy walk to the tourist strip of Playa. Highly recommended.
One minor complaint would be the lack of drying facilities: there is a washing machine and dryer but no clothes horse or line. Management is VERY strict re no clothes to be visible on the balcony, so unless you want to risk ruining clothes in the dryer, draping them around inside on the chairs is the only option.
Also the wifi internet is shared from another unit, so is not accessible except for in the furthest corners of the living room or outside.
We are Diane and Andrew, and our daughter Caylee. Our son Mat, lives in Brazil. We have been visiting Playa del Carmen for almost 13 years, and other areas for many more. Our thing has been travel, and a persistent search for a place to purchase a second home out of the US. In all our travels, we have never found another place to take the place of Playa del Carmen. So, we purchased our beautiful spacious second home in what we feel is the absolute best location on the Yucatan Peninsula; in the gorgeous gated and protected community of Playacar, in Playa Del Carmen. We can walk to downtown playa or the ocean in about 7 minutes, or take an inexpensive cab ride in no time at all. And finally, it's only 45 minutes from the International Airport in Cancun.
We absolutely love the weather, as our main home is located in the freezing mountains in the northeast portion of the US. We never tire of the stunning beauty of the blue-green carribean ocean and white clean sand in Playa, and add to our substantial collection of sea shells from long walks on the beach. We indulge in $25 an hour massages a couple times a week, visit some of the fabulous shops, occasionally eat a fresh whole Red Snapper grilled over an open fire at one of the popular beach restaurants. We also love to eat at one of our favorite sidewalk restaurants, and enjoy the unique international flavor of watching and meeting visitors from all over the world. There are also tons of things to do, not only for us, but for our kids. The ferry to Cozumel is about 7 minutes to walk from our ground floor condo. Cozumel has more restaurants, some fun bars, $15 real silver shops, and among the most spectacular scuba diving reefs in the world. We enjoy cooking Mexican food at our Playa home, and beating the system with a Mexican meal for two for about six bucks.
We too have experienced most of life's challenges, the general everyday hustle of living, from the costs of college educations, to surviving in small business, and a human resources career, where stress is part of the job description. We have tried to make our second home affordable, and share it with other people like us, who have limited time and resources, and looking for better quality and value for their hard earned after-tax income. Ultimately, we feel this concept works well for people all over the world, both for guest and host.
