The Space

Rosa Blanca's Casa de Canciones (House of Songs) is a beautiful and relaxing vacation condo to take you away from the stresses of everyday life. The condo is located on the second floor of a small condominium building in the gated golf community of Playacar Phase II. The walking distance into town is about 5-10 minutes. The condo has been completed redecorated in April 2012 and is a lovely, spacious and comfortable place where you will be able to relax and enjoy a well deserved vacation. From the large terrace adjacent to the living you can enjoy a view of the pool and the tropical trees surrounding the property. The condo has all modern amenities like wireless hi-speed internet, flat screen TV with cable service, a fully equipped kitchen, linens, towels, beach chairs, cooler, etc. It sleeps 4 people in the bedrooms and there is an option for up to 2 extra people to sleep on the pullout bed in the living room.

Enjoy the large common areas pool with plenty of lounge space around it. Great to cool off after a hot day exploring Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya or the local beaches.

The condo is located just inside in Playacar Phase II, offering you the quiet and security of a gated resort community. Playacar Phase II is designed around an 18 hole Van Hagge designed golf course adjacent to the town of Playa del Carmen. The walking distance to town and beaches is about 5-10 minutes. You can also take a taxi, Playa has many so you won't have to call or wait for one. A ride into town will cost around 5USD.

  • Monica, the Property Manager at for house in Playacar, was professional and responsive to any questions we had about Playa and the property - wonderful place to stay - would definitely stay here again - just a block away from beach and there were some chairs and an umbrella we could use while there - just a 10-15 minute walk to Avenida Quinta and the ferry via a shortcut path through the park - hope to be back again.

  • This condo was exactly what we were looking for! It was very clean and spacious. The only problem was that the third bed was a pull out couch and it wasn't very comfy. Sometimes the music on 5th Ave got loud at night but it never kept us awake. We felt very safe and loved the location. It's a short walk to the beach. The parking spot with a gate was a huge bonus! Monica was excellent to work with! We would DEFINATELY stay there again.

  • Monica's condo was absolutely beautiful and it looks just like it does in the photos. One of the best places I've stayed and at such a reasonable price. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it without hesitation.

    The condo is right on 5th Av. which is the main street in Playa del Carmen. If you are taking the ferry or bus into Playa, it is about a 15 minute walk. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach and just steps away from all the bars and restaurants. The only downside to this is that it can be a bit noisy at night as the music from the bars can be quite loud, and while closing all the doors and windows does muffle the sound, you can definitely still hear it. But this is the trade off for wanting to be in a more central location and I personally had no problems with it at all. Also, since Monica's condo is a bit further down the strip, it is a bit quieter and more laid back than the absolute craziness of the club district that is closer to the ferry port. Here you will find people who are looking to enjoy a nice meal, have a few drinks and listen to some live music.

    Monica was a great help and she was quick to respond to any questions that I had, even ones that weren't necessarily about the apartment itself. She provided all the information I needed to easily find and access the apartment and left maps, tourist information and even coupons to nearby restaurants.

    All in all it was a wonderful stay in Playa and my new go-to accommodation if I ever return. Thank you Monica for a wonderful experience!

  • The condo is cosy and is located very central. Just a few minutes to the beach and right next to Av. 5. Monica is very helpful and our questions were answered very quickly. We enjoyed our stay very much and can recommend it without hesitation.

  • The apartment looks just like the pictures if not better! It is so spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen is very modern and beautiful. We never had any issues with wifi, cleanliness, hot water, AC etc. Everything was in great working condition! We were just 2 people in the apartment but it can easily and comfortably fit more. The location is excellent (just off of busy 5th ave). Check in and out was seamless and I couldn't be happier with our stay! Monica left us with plenty of information on what to do in the area as well as helpful tips of things to know around the apartment. Thank you for a great stay Monica! We wouldn't think twice about booking again!

  • The place was amazing and exactly as shown on AirBnB. Monica was great and responded to our questions quickly. The directions she provided were perfect. If you get the chance to stay here you definitely should - close to the beach, on 5th close to the night life, great shops and restaurants. We didn't see the cleaning staff but they did a fantastic job as well.

  • J'ai réservée un condo pour la première fois,avant j'ai toujours été en tout inclus.J'ai adorée mon expérienc.Le condo est super bien situé a 5 minutes de la plage ,on a acsès au Reef Playacar gratuitement de 9h a 17h qui est juste en face de l'autre côté de la rue. Le condo est très propre et très grand,Monica est une hôte fiable,nous avons eu un brie d'aire climatisée et le problème a été réglé des le lemdemain. La ville et sa fameuse 5 ième avenue est a 15 minutes de marche. Nous avons fait nôtre épicerie chez Walmart qui est a 25 minutes de marche et revenions en taxi (70 pesos). Le condo est tranquille mais proche de la ville pour faire la fête, je le recommande a tout ceux qui aime faire de la plage et être proche de la ville et ces divertissements. Monica est une personnes fiable qui répond a nos questions très rapidement. Je vais probablement répéter l'expérience de voyage en condo .

  • Отличные апартаменты! Большая, просторная квартира с тремя балконами. Замечательное месторасположение, в шаговой доступности бары, магазины, дискотеки, море. Квартира полностью оборудована: посуда, стиральная машина, фен, утюг, доска и даже утюг для выпрямления волос)))) На балконе есть гриль.
    В целом, мы получили только положительные эмоции от пребывания. Спасибо Моника!

  • Monica's condo is perfectly located in Playa Del Carmen. The condo was very comfortable and the bed was amazing to sleep in! The grounds are well kept and the noise level was medium. However, it was BPM weekend so there are many events ongoing. We loved the tiling throughout the condo. Everything worked smoothly , she left a bunch of coupons and recommendations which was really sweet.

Latido de Mexico
I'm originally from Amsterdam but in 1999 I chose the sunny skies of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The same year I became a PADI dive instructor and the following years I spent a lot of time swimming around in the beautiful Caribbean waters. In 2006 I got the opportunity to look after a beautiful villa in Playacar. This is when I found out this work suited me really well. The rest is history, I started a property management and vacation rental business called Latido de Mexico. Now, 5 years later I'm still enjoying my job and my life in Playa del Carmen.
