About Cristina

We bought the land and after that over time we have built, Casa Chanty that is named after our little girl who is in Mexico born.

Since then we take care of this house with love also valuable for our guests like us, can enjoy the grace and relaxation that this place gives. Welcome to Casa Chanty

Cristina purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Cristina chose Playa del Carmen

the house is directly on the beach, currently the beach of playa del secreto is among the most exclusive being that access is allowed only to people who rent the private villas and the small B & B, is fabulous and quiet location where you really can appreciate the nature and the beauty of this marvelous Caribbean sea

What makes this apartment unique

because is perfect and has all you need for a perfect vacation & specially for all the people who like to wake up and enjoy the impressively sunrise over the sea , ranging on a deserted stretch of white sand to the horizon, enjoy a free and unique for themselves, the contact with nature and tranquility of this place are what make it unique and so special, for our guests, they all say that exceeds their expectations and that the photos online can not really reflect the real beauty of the place.

Guestbook comments from the manager


We just came home after spending 2 weeks in the Sun Suite. This was my mom's last international trip, as she is 86 yrs old and can't handle the long airplane flight. She loves the beach and your place was the perfect place for her. She thought your place felt very comfortable and was so convenient. We all appreciated the nice touches of having spices in the kitchen, a water jug, lots of beach towels, a washer, a big refrigerator, candles, creams, repellants, the list goes on. In most airbnb's, I bring water, spices, toilet paper, candles, etc.

Thank you to you, Alberto and your wonderful staff for a very nice vacation!

My family and I stayed at this amazing house in January 2009. The pictures truly do not do it justice. The view is absolutely amazing!! It is the perfect place if you are looking to relax and avoid the high traffic tourist areas that crowd some of Mexico's beaches. It is a 5 minute drive into Puerto Morelos which is a small fishing town just north of the house. Playa del Carmen is a short drive south from the house as well. The beach where the house is located is very private and secluded. If you are looking for a place with an amazing view and a quiet location, this is definitely your place!

Wonderful house, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

It really lives up to the description and photos. The ocean water is clear and this property has some of the best beach front in the area. The house is lovely and has great views. We were two families who split the penthouse and it was plenty of room for all seven of us.

We just returned from an amazing week at Casa Chanty. The home is just as it shows with the living area having a stunning wrap around view of the ocean. The sand is incredibly soft and white and the ocean is crystal clear and warm. I have to say that the beach is one of the best we have seen. We did rent a car, which I highly suggest, because it is a little ways away from shopping, restaurants, etc. Puerto Morelos is about a 10 minute drive and has everything you need including grocery stores, restaurants on the beach, souvenier shops, fishing and snorkeling. The home is situated between Cancun and Playa del Carmen so it was easy getting around to all of the areas. We enjoyed Tulum and cenotes which were only about an hour away but there are closer ones as well.

The home has everything you need including coffee pot, blender, pots and pans, dishes. It is important to keep food off the counters to prevent ants but that is to be expected anywhere. There were 7 of us and there was plenty of room in this 3 bed/3ba plus loft home. We were very comfortable in the beds and enjoyed the individual a/c in each room. The bathrooms were great and there was plenty of hot water. Yes, you do need to wait a few minutes to get the water hot as per other reviews, but, who cares!

We are looking forward to returning some day and renting the entire home instead of only the top Penthouse.

The boys used the kayaks to go further out into the ocean and the girls enjoyed the outdoor beds and pool area for relaxing.

Alberto lives in the back house and was there whenever we needed him for fresh towels, toilet paper, taxis, or whatever. My girls fell in love with Perla, his dog, and wanted to take her home with us.

Be sure to book this will be so happy you did!

The most amazing beach holiday we have been on!

  • 4 of 5

We are not long back from mexico where we stayed at casa chanty "Playa Del Secreto" and absolutely loved every minute of it.The location of the villa was exactly what we were looking for,direct on the beach and peaceful!Its exactly how you would imagine it and the view from the penthouse 360 degree window was breath taking.Watching the sunrise from the balcony every morning was a luxury.My two young sons were with us and they loved living right on the beach and having a little pool to play in aswell!We hired a car which is pretty necessary there and it was only 5min drive into Puerto Morelos where we could get food shopping etc but was an amazing little ccarribean fishing village.There,s plenty to do as you are in between cancun and playa del carmen.We would definately go back....Leianne from scotland

Casa Chanty...pretty close to perfect!

  • 5 of 5

When you wake up in the morning and walk into the living room you feel like you are sitting on top of the's amazing! The view will take your breathe's simply spectacular! At the end of the day you get to fall asleep listening to the waves of the ocean...yes you are that close!

We had the upper unit, "the penthouse". Our group was two couples and my 2 grown children. The house was very spacious. Three bathrooms was great for our group of six. Our only complaint about the bathrooms would be the hot water. We complained to Alberto and were told that we needed to let the water run and that it would eventually get hot...this is true...but it takes anywhere between 5-10 minutes for it to get warm/hot. Never once were we able to turn on the water and have it be hot.

The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and pots and pans. When we arrived we had two refrigerators...which was great because we used one for drinks only. Two days later...the one for drinks was removed because it was leaking into the downstairs unit. Since we were staying there and cooking our meals the second fridge was needed. Once they took it they never brought it back. The blender leaks a black liquid out the bottom every time you use it. The bottled water cooler that they provide was awesome!

The beach is beautiful and very private! White sands and not a lot of rocks. We were able to walk into the ocean bare footed...water shoes weren't needed. You'd see maybe 10 people a day walk by. The week of our stay there the was a large amount of seaweed on the shore that you had to walk thru to get to the beach. After we were there for a couple of days...Alberto had his crew come and bury a large amount of it so that you could walk to the water without walking over the seaweed. Alberto did say that normally there is not a problem with seaweed. Even with the seaweed there...the beach was still amazing!

Alberto lives in a small house behind the property. He was very helpful! We did not rent a car. So he called cabs for us as well as ordered our pizza on our first night. Very nice man!

Overall our stay was awesome! The few minor items of concern did not ruin our vacation...just wanted to give an honest feedback of our experience. The photos they have listed are exactly what the house looks like! So if you are looking for a secluded beach front house...Casa Chanty is for you!

Owner's Response: dearest Amy Thanks for your lovely and honest reviews, we appreciate anything you can tell us after your return in order to always improve what we offer to our customers. I'm sorry for the times it takes the water to reach the water heater is located outside the laundry room on the ground floor of the house and it is for this reason that the path has to make that takes 5 minutes to get hot water. The fridge white you were talking about was a fridge was put provisionally in the penthouse waiting for the new bigger refrigerator (who arrived during the week when you were there) that would replace just the two smaller fridges and I had requested that both small refrigerators was replaced with the new one, probably my husband "Alberto" could not explain well, excuse us. I am very happy that for the rest of you feel great, for me playa del secteto is truly a special place where people feel free and peaceful, is so quiet and safe and I'm glad you and your family have shared this experience, thank you so much for your very kind words and sensations that you have sent, and your helpful advice. P.S the blender we have already changed !! thanks a lot,now there's a new one. Thanks again and happy year, best wishes to your family. Cristina
