  • We really enjoyed staying in Marielle's house. Its location is ideal, next to the beach and a short walk to bars and restaurants. We were 9 and the size of the house was perfect. Nice rooftop.
    Marielle was also kind enough to arrange for a transfer from the airport to the house at a good price!

  • La verdad es que es una opción perfecta si quieres pasar unos días en playa del carmen alejado del alboroto hotelero. La playa que tiene está muy bien y en 15 minutos andando puedes coger las van que te llevan a cualquier lado.

    La casa está muy bien, pequeñita pero con todo lo necesario.

    Todo el mundo fue muy amable, solo un poco de descoordinación a la llegada, pero cuando sevsolucionó todo fue sobre ruedas.

  • Casa Xaguar is a wonderful place to stay in Playa. It is in a safe area near the beach and a 5-10 walk to 5th Avenue. The beach is two very short blocks away (1-2 minutes) and it is a BEAUTIFUL beach!! Great walking.
    Marielle is an EXCELLENT communicator-we were left with no questions and the team was flexible with us-much appreciated.
    The house was nice but we did not spend much time there-Playa is so beautiful and fun-why be insides? We would give the house 5 stars but the hot water and AC were not working --we didn't mind because the cool shower felt great and the breeze and fans kept us cool. We only stayed for 2 days and because of our short visit, we never talked with the caretaker to let them know of these problems. I am sure they would have been fixed if we had talked with them.
    We would definitely stay there again

  • Le studio est idéalement situé , à quelques minutes à pieds de la 5ème avenue et pourtant très calme!
    La plage juste à côté est jolie et tranquille par rapport au reste de Playa del Carmen.
    Marielle est très à l'écoute et Carlos très gentil et serviable!! Il nous a beaucoup aidé lors de notre séjour.
    La piscine est agréable et le patio devant le studio est idéal pour déjeuner, diner ou petit déjeuner...
    La cuisine est très petite mais le studio est parfait pour quelques jours à Playa.

  • "Where to start? Yes, this location is quiet and secure. The 5th avenue is also a quick walk away. The beach is less than 3 minutes away and you can easily find shade in a less crowded part of town. Located between the main dock to Cozumel and the stretch of resorts of Playacar Fase 2, Playacar Fase 1 is the best place to spend a quiet day at the beach. We also experienced the other side of town (Mamita's Beach Club) and the beach is noisy, crowded and crazy with tourists. The Xaguar property itself is overgrown and not well-maintained. Dead leaves covering the ground, garbage that didn't move all week. The pool was cloudy when we got there. The size of this unit is definitely advertise wrong. It's nowhere near 540sq ft. Cut this by half. Our main issues were with the studio cleanness. The only access door to the room is through the patio/sliding door. The railing was so stuck that my mother couldn't open the door by herself. Our lock broke the first day but with Marielle's help, Amir was quick to fix it. The beige curtains inside the room were filthy grey. The dishes had an old layer of dust stuck to them. We didn't even have a pot to boil water. We had to ask for the toaster, and Dalia (the maid) got us one. There was dried blood on my night stand that I had to scrub off with a spoon. The lights over the bed had protective plastic coverings that were grey with dust, and only 1 light bulb between the 2. The bathroom sink and window still in the shower were covered with mold. The shower head was held together with electric tape. I have pictures to prove it too. I'm confused about the other reviews. Were we at the same place?"

    Response from Marielle:

    Despite our staff's daily visits to the studio, Gisele kept reassuring us that everything was ok, which leaves us deeply surprise to see this review. Rather than letting us about those discomforts, which could have been address, from day 1 from the very minute she checked in, the guest documented those discomforts via pictures to report them in this review. It's a shame, as we are on standby 24/7, to ensure our tenants have the most-hassle free vacations. The studio's size is accurately advertised, as the size includes the interior and the patio. Though the pool is cleaned on a daily basis, the studio is surrounded with green areas, namely, lots of trees, and we can therefore not stop the leaves from the trees to fall into the pool. Maid service is provided every other day. Guests as responsible to take place their garbage outside by the entrance door every morning, as an indicator to have the trash bag changed, as indicated upon check in.

  • Once again we had a great tiime in Casa Xaguar. We booked last minute and everything was quick and simple, rooms were clean and weather was great. Will definately stay again.
    Thanks again Marielle!

  • La respuesta de MArielle fue rápida y oportuna, el studio tiene las condiciones como se describen, la atención de Carlos Y Amir ráida y atenta todo el tiempo.

  • Excelentes instalaciones y atención de primera por parte de Marielle desde antes de llegar a nuestro destino. La ubicacion es maravillosa ya que esta a sólo dos cuadras del Mamita's Beach Club y esta en la esquina de la 5a Avenida, lo cual permite desplazarte a pie por las áreas más importantes de Playa del Carmen. La casa muy limpia con todos los servicios necesarios (blancos, lavadora, secadora, vajilla, cubiertos, vasos, electrodomesticos, etc) Sin duda una experiencia para repetrise. Si piensan ir a Playa del Carmen ya sea como familia para descansar o con amigos para echar relajo, esta es LA opción.

  • Siempre pudimos mantener muy buena comunicación con Marielle. El estudio estaba muy limpio y la ubicación del lugar es excelente, a solo unos pasos de la playa.

  • We experienced a wonderful time at Penthouse Xaguar in Playacar. We spent 10 days there in March and it became our Mexican home. The beach was close by, just a couple of blocks down the street, and it was pristine and uncrowded. The apartment was within easy walking distance to Playa del Carmen and all of its restaurants and shops, but far away enough to provide us with the peace and quiet that we like. The apartment contained all the essentials that we required, a spacious living area, and a more than functional kitchen. There were several balconies, one of which provided us with a view of the Caribbean. The linens on the bed were clean and we were provided with towels, some toiletries and fresh drinking water almost daily. We felt very safe here and comfortably at home. While we never met Marielle, we communicated with her several times through email and a few phone conversations; she was always most courteous, pleasant and professional.
