This was our first AirBnB booking and we were a bit nervous as to how it would all work out.
Let me say, that was un warranted and this entire trip was amazing.
As arranged a driver was waiting at the airport to pick us up. He was great.
As we arrived at the house Patricia was waiting to great us. She told us everything we needed to know and gave us a local cell to reach her with further questions.
The House is BEAUTIFUL! the pictures do not do it justice. If you want to feel like you are in Mexico, this is the house. Everything corner is filled with Mexican styled art and pottery. From the tiled floors to the dark wood. We LOVED this house.
We are a group of 7 women in their 40's who have been travelling together for years now, and we can be picky sometimes. Collectively, we can't really find much to complain about.
The rooms are lrg and comfortable. Each with a king size bed, bathroom and closet. (bathrooms have hair dryers and curling irons) no need to bring that!
Kitchen/living area is lrg enough that all 7 of us could easily hang out in the eve, over drinks and card games.
The kitchen is fully stocked with every gadget known to man. Even an electric juicers so you can make your own margaritas!
Outside is a little plunge pool, I liked to jump in first thing to cool off.
The pool area is really the only down side. It is across the street from the house, in a gated area. The lock is cumbersome and the pool is not overly inviting as it is mostly shady. No issues for us, we just headed to the beach each morning.
The beach is 5 mins away, and just behind the house via a path out back. The house has towels, mats, pillows and even an a sun umbrella to make your time comfortable. As we were 7 and always coming and going, We would set up camp on the beach then go, only taking our valuables. No one ever touched our towels and umbrella!
The section of beach the house is close to quiet yet only less than 10 mins walk to all the beach bars! Perfect really!
We loved Wah Wah's (Fish tacos were great)!
We walked to the Chedraui store for food and supplies, (20 min walk) then took a taxi home. (easy as there is a taxi line outside the store) Playa Del Carmen 5th street is a 10 min walk away and full of touristy stuff for you to do/see if that's your thing.
We had Mercedes and Patricia book us a private driver for all our tours. It is the best way, cheap professional and PRIVATE! Just give them a call, they will arrange everything!
Lastly, we found a private chef to come every second night. HE IS AMAZING! Hire him, he is inexpensive and worth it!
Mercedes was a good host. The villa was even better than described. thank you Mercedes for a nice and relaxing stay!
We are very happy with the service and the home that was rented.
Any problems we had we fixed promptly
This was the perfect way to spend our holiday. Our group of 7 friends who now live in different places around the world all came together in Playa Del Carmen to enjoy NYE.
The house was huge, immaculate and had all the possible amenities you could think of. We saved so much money by cooking on the barbecue and doing a couple of big shops at Walmart.
The house was a 2 min walk to the beach and the perfect distance from town so it was quiet, but easy to get in there without having to catch any transport. We are already thinking about another opportunity we will have to go back and do it all again.
