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 wall safe for your valubles. There are 2 Smart DVD's for Movies and entertainment. 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, Tommy Bahama Beach chairs and a large Beach Umbrella.
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. You can walk out to the pool directly from the dining room or the living room through double sliding screened/glass doors. If you do have a car, you have your own private dedicated spot to park.

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.
