Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Perfect little place to stay in playa del carmen. walking distance of night life and authentic mexican food.

  • Melinda's place was so comfortable, and had everything we needed in handy, we stayed 3 night but wish it could have been more, she is expert in the place and can sugest all you need to have an extra special time in Playa, pretty close to walk to the fifth avenue, shuttles and busses.

    March 2014
  • Melinda's place has a feel of a home away from home.
    The location is ideal for those who want easy access to the main strip of busy restaurants and bars but to have some separation from it. Melinda was incredibly welcoming and friendly. The apartment is very comfortable and full of light. Cozy spacious bedroom and well equipped kitchen. Wi Fi was stable and fast. Everything was great and we had an awesome time. Highly recommend!

  • We had a great 8-day stay at Melinda's place. Because of sunburn, we spent several of those days relaxing at home. The location was perfect for us: a 12 min walk from our favorite beach spot, a 15-20 min walk from all of our favorite Playa restaurants, with the Colectivo and ADO bus locations even closer for easy travel to the airport and day trips.

    Melinda met us at her place when we arrived. She was always a staircase away in case we needed anything (but we didn't). The kitchen had all utensils, pots, and pans we needed to cook several dinners. In Playa, you don't drink the tap water, so Melinda provided us with two large jugs for the water dispenser. We filled several smaller water bottles, put them in the fridge overnight, then brought them with us everywhere we went.

    Other notes:
    - Great porch to eat meals on, dry out towels, etc.
    - Gets very noisy, even with earplugs. Animals, voices, and music kept us up at times.
    - Light woke us up between 6 and 630 every day. That was fine for us, but meant that early bedtimes were necessary.

    Overall, we definitely thought the place was a great value. Would stay again!

  • Nice, very confortable place you can easily get used to. Lots of light. good air flow, very clean, tastefully set up. Large bathroom and well stock kitchen. Slightly outside of the tourist area, therefore quiet (however bring your earplugs: some neighbors might listen to loud music, or a few dogs might bark during the night).

  • Wow! It's like a secret garden but with Jungle. A real oasis in the centre of town. We couldn't have been happier with the apartment of Melinda. She was so welcoming and informative. The bedroom was really spacious, lots of things already there to cook with, and an amazing balcony to have dinner on. I'd recommend this to anyone visiting Playa Del Carmen.

    February 2014
  • We had a wonderful stay at Melinda's! It was exactly as pictured. As many past reviews have said, it is close the the action but not in the action. It's a walk through a non tourist area which is perfectly safe and fine. But if you are a resort person--stay in a resort. If you are someone that wants to get off the beaten track and experience where you have travelled too than stay here rather than a hotel. Bring ear plugs--for anywhere in Mexico.

    February 2014
  • Melinda is an amazing hostess, she made us feel at home and her house is amazing right by the beach but secluded at the same time. We loved staying with her and cant wait to go back!

    January 2014
  • The space was lovely: beautiful balcony, hot shower, fantastic garden.
    Melinda was gracious in helping us with anything we needed to do in Spanish (make reservations, etc.).
    And the kitchen was great for when we felt like eating in.
    Night noises were present (dogs, people, traffic, etc) all night long. But the location was wonderfully close to the main streets of Playa del Carmen.

    January 2014
  • This apartment is excellent value for money. Melinda is a very helpful host and the apartment is charmingly decorated with a very well equipped kitchen.

I am originally from California, actually from the monterey/ san francisco area. I moved to mexico almost 30 years ago never thinking I would stay for so long but two children later and many businesses later....I'm still here and its good. Playa has been good to me and my family. This year I put the healing center which is a co op of different healers and therapists. It is a good extension of the family I already have.
