About This Listing
Come and stay at our one bedroom apartment in the heart of Playa del Carmen. We are located near it all:
• 5 minute walk to the beautiful Playacar beach
• 5 minute walk to 5th Avenue, tourist area
• 3 blocks from local super market and banks
5 minute walk to buses to tulum, cancun, anywhere in the riviera
Even though we are very close to everything ,the property is quiet and lushushly green, completely enclosed for your safety. Adjacent to the apartment is a small healing center with the services of local healers and therapists for very reasonable prices. The small community feeling and large green gardens will make you feel like home.
Since we´ve live in Playa for 25 years and worked in tourism we can help you with most questions about your stay. Whether you are wanting to go on tours or just stay and relax you will find what you need with us.
We enjoyed the Place so much! It is a spacious apartment with a nice terasse. Gracias Melinda!!!
A great place in the locals area of Playa. Beautiful gardens and atmosphere hidden behind the walls of this place. Great balcony to relax on and very close to the main ADO station and the ferry to Cozumel. You won't be disappointed staying here. Melinda was dry friendly and we had a great chat about my prior travels and life in general.
You couldn't ask for a better hostess than Melinda. So helpful and nice and she is always reachable which is very comforting. The house is situated in a quiet street among the locals which gives you a feel for the local way of life but is still within 10 minute walk from the beach and 5th avenue. There are plenty of good cheap restaurants and supermarkets just a couple of blocks away. We had an amazing time at Melinda’s house and we would recommend it in a heartbeat! Thank you for hosting us!
The apartment is conveniently located near the beach and busy 5th Avenue, and we loved the little private courtyard that leads into the living quarters. Admittedly, the apartment was not quite as clean as the pictures show; there were cobwebs on the ceiling and ants in the kitchen, but other than this, it was very well presented. The shower could do with being a little more powerful though, especially after coming in from a long day on the beach!
Melinda wasn't around for our stay, which made it a little difficult to communicate effectively, but when she did reply she was very pleasant and accommodating.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay; it's a great apartment to come back to and relax in after a long day out in the sun, and we'd recommend Melinda's apartment to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay in Playa del Carmen.
Melinda was very kind in having two friends help us get into the apartment because she was out of town during our arrival. The apartment itself is set off the street and is super cute. Would definitely stay here again!
We had a great time staying at this apartment. We stayed beginning of May, for 5 days. Melinda is a very welcoming host. We had some trouble finding it but she was immediately available to help us, and during our stay as well. The apartment is exactly as described: close to the touristic area but in a calm and non-touristic neighbourhood. If you are keen to explore Playa the less mass-touristic way, this is a great spot. It has a very laid-back atmosphere and provides all the basics. Thank you Melinda for the hospitality!

About the Host, Melinda
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.
