The welcome by Francisco was exceptional. The apartment was in accordance with the description: clean, equipped with all the listed facilities. Also good and convenient position in a residential area very quiet and safe. I highly recommend it for those who want to spend a few weeks in the area of Playa del Carmen.
The house is great. It is exactly what is shown in the photos and described in the description. Very close (walking distance) to convenience stores, a shopping center with grocery store, and a wal-mart. It is about 30 minute walk or 5 minute taxi (only $2.50 US) to the beach. Found it to be a much better value than hotels directly on the beach, especially for extended stays. At times one can hear dogs barking or birds chirping loudly, but it is not overly annoying. It is a very quiet and secure neighborhood. Francisco is very professional and reliable as we communicated through e-mail, and his local contact Olivia, is very kind and helpful. I was and am very pleased with my rental here and am already planning to return.
Francisco has a great house! It's in a cute residential neighborhood with lots of charm. The house was wonderful, spacious and more than comfortable. There's a grill on the back patio, lots of sunlight in the house, great sound system and tv, and a huge California king in the master bedroom!! I stayed here for a month while finding a more permanent place to live in Playa del Carmen, and it was perfect for me!!! Francisco was super helpful to me and was easy to contact in case I needed anything. It was a lovely stay in his house. :)
Todo muy bien, muy buena comunicacion, la casa esta al lado de un Oxxo, tienda 24 horas y lavanderia, se tarda 10min en llegar en taxi a playa del carmen y el taxi tiene un valor de 30 pesos ($3).
En resumen todo perfecto.
Muchas gracias Francisco.
Perfect little casa in a nice middle class Mex neighbourhood. It had everything i needed plus some extras. It's very close to a big plaza, convenience store and much to my delight a great laundry mat that offers great full service for cheap! No need for the washer in the back.
Cons: Cable TV would have been a plus. If you are a light sleeper bring earplugs. There are many loud dogs in the hood here. It's 4 Kms from the beach and center so taxi (30 pesos=$2.50 each way) and / or bike is necessary. I did both with little problem.
Francisco and his friend Wilma went out of their way to make sure I was settled. She picked me up, took me shopping and fixed a few things all within my first 2 days. He was more than fair and made sure I was taken care of. I highly recommend it.
The apartment is very nice. The ceiling fans and air conditioning have been a godsend during this past month of high heat and humidity! Overall the location is really good, central to a massive shopping complex (Plaza America), a 5-10minute walk away. The house is close to a bus stop that run directly into the heart of Playa del Carmen. Buses are cheap so its the best option. We walked on many occasions into Playa, and its a nice 3km, 40 minute walk. If you walk you can see the more local side to Playa; with it's little taco/burro stores, hardware stores and fresh fruit and veg stores. There's lots of cheap ice cream places along here too (none of the fancy expensive brands - just local homemade fresh goodies for low prices).
The house itself is well equipped and will suit the needs of anyone wanting to make their own meals. There's a blender, fruit juicer, sandwich press, microwave, electric hob top, fridge freezer and a coffee machine. The only thing missing was an oven.. The master bedroom is big, bright and airy. There's heaps of storage for you stuff and the bed is big and comfy too. The second bedroom also has a double bed (great if your travelling with friends), and there are these hooks in the walls that you can use to hang a hammock, or in our case we made an indoor washing line!
The lounge room has a nice modern flatscreen tv and sound system with a USB Input - handy! Theres a large comfy corner sofa, which makes it feel very homely. The high speed internet was awesome, great for skype users and people who are planning their next steps!
There is a washing machine in the back garden, but we couldn't get it to work - that was a downside.
The weekly cleaner, Carmen was extremely thorough. She literally cleans every surface, every cupboard, the fridge, the fans and door frames each time she comes. She would spend 3 hours and was extremely trustworthy.
The lady looking after the keys, Vilma is lovely. Neither her or Carmen speak much English (this accommodation is in locals territory), but they try hard. I found it easier to learn the phrases I needed (thanks Google Translate) and talk spanish!
Overall we highly recommend Francisco's apartment in Santa Fe. If we were ever returning to the area for another long stay, we'd definitely stay again.
