Wireless Internet is available from the balconies and terraces, as well as the common area by the pool. The surrounding areas feature plenty of green areas, Mayan ruins, a pool, and the beach is located only 50 meters away or 3 minutes walk. Paseo del Carmen Shopping Mall and 5th avenue are all located within a short 6 minutes walking distance. A team of bilingual knowledgeable maintenance staff is available onsite for anything you may need during your stay. Maid service is provided from Monday to Friday. Purified water bottles are also provided, with free refill. Inquire for further details.
This place was as advertised—the beach is literally just outside your door. The house is nice and the kitchen well-stocked with utensils. Fresh water is delivered to your doorstep and a maid comes to clean every morning, and Carlos and Emil are usually around in case anything needs fixing. The one drawback to the place was that the beds were really hard—we ended up putting the futon mattress on top of the regular mattress and that worked out fine. But that is a minor qualm—this place is paradise. All in all, we would definitely love to stay here again.
This place was great. 1 block from the beach and a short walk from downtown. Very spacious too. Marielle was very professional and handled all out questions and concerns courteously.
My friends and I had a good, but not great, experience at Casa Xaguar.
The cons: The wifi didn't work for the first 24 hours we were there, and neither did the hot water. Marielle and her assistants were responsive in fixing these issues, but it was nonetheless frustrating to not have these comforts from the start. Meanwhile, the bed in the master bedroom was rock hard and not very comfortable. There also were a ton of switches on the walls and it was nearly impossible to figure out which switches did what - lights, fans, etc. They need to be labeled.
The pros: The house was clean and well appointed. The pool area was really nice, and the location was great. It was a block from a beautiful stretch of beach and in the Playacar development, which was really nice and private. It also was a 5-10 minute walk to the southern edge of the town of Playa del Carmen, where there was a taxi stand to take you where you needed to go. A perfect combo of convenience and seclusion.
Marielle K was prompt and very helpful with everything we needed. She even accommodated us for one extra night.
We are very familiar with the area and the rental prices for the houses and we felt the price was fair for the time we visited Playa.
House was clean and good condition. It needs some upgrades, but for the amount of time we spent inside, we didn't really care much for that. :)
Great location, 2 mins from the beach. The hosts were phenomenal, we even got a free organic honey and everyone was super nice to us.
We will definitely visit again.
Wonderful experience! The property's location is perfect. In a gated residential community with 24-hour security, one block to the beach, and a 5-7 minute walk either along the beach or through the community to all the restaurants, shopping, ferry. Bicycles were also provided so it was very easy to get around. The house was perfect for an extended stay. We were there for 10 days. All kitchen appliances and utensils, lots of space to spread out, air conditioning in both bedrooms, housekeeper was there Monday-Saturday and even took our laundry to be cleaned for $3USD which made packing so much easier. Outdoor space was great with a balcony off the dining area, off the 2nd bedroom, off the master bedroom, and then the master had a second balcony with access to an upper deck for sunning with views of the ocean. House was clean and just had a couple minor maintenance issues that were addressed with the property manager upon departure. My son and I loved our stay and would definitely go back.
Our stay was amazing everything it was supposed to be steps from the beach friendly staff.. The walk to town was easy and having a kitchen to cook in was lovely not to mention the free bottled water. I wasn't expecting such a beautiful place with the rooftop sporting beautiful views of the ocean. I will stay here again.
Amazing home with an unbelievable staff! Marielle made sure that every aspect of our trip was covered and prepared before arrival. Although we did not have the pleasure of meeting her, the rest of her staff more than made up for it.
Being first timers in playa del Carmen, we were completely lost. However we had the assistance of Amir and Carlos who helped with pretty much everything! Our first morning, we asked about where to eat breakfast, and Carlos asked if we would like for him to bring something. We gave him some cash and in 15 minutes he came back with one of the most memorable meals ever. I believe we have him 500 pesos and he came back with about 250. We graciously offered him tip but he would not accept, so we tipped Amir instead. Lol~
They were so amazing we even decided to invite them for dinner when we were grilling at the pool. Amir even helped us grill!
We would return in a heart beat to any of Marielle's property listings and could not imagine staying anywhere else. Thanks to all the staff for such an amazing time!
