About Roger & Sharon Schulz
My wife Sharon and I first came to Playa del Carmen over 20 years ago and fell in love with this Yucatan beach paradise. We bought this condo from the original owner back in 2010. The unit has since been completely remodeled. We have added 400 and 800 count sheets and 90 oz towels and our own maid to make sure that the unit is continuously well maintained and cared for. Someday in the future, Xaman Ha will become our home, so we've gone to the effort to make sure this condo has all the amenities and comforts you'll need and enjoy. Our casa es su casa. We manage this property ourselves and live just a short 2-minute walk away. With our long 20 year history in the area, we are excited to share our knowledge and are happy to assist you with anything you may need during your stay with us. Our Community is very important to us, especially to those that are less fortunate. Many years ago Sharon and I were asked to volunteer to be Santa Claus in some Mayan villages during the Christmas holidays. Since then, I became the resident Santa Claus for Playa and the Yucatan (which I take very seriously), and together we have visited over 45 villages each year and have helped bring happiness to over 20 thousand children. We work with many groups to collect toys, clothes, reading materials, school supplies and many other items to make life just a little better for the children and families in Sols Maya. We welcome any support and would be delighted to receive any cloths, school supplies and cooking utensils you may wish to give to these children and their families. We are genuinely passionate about making our guests feel at home and welcomed. We look forward to meeting you soon. Roger (AKA Santa Claus) & Sharon

Why Roger & Sharon Schulz chose Playacar Fase I
We have been asked many times why we bought our condo at Xaman Ha and our answer is simple; look out the window from the Master bed. You will see the gardens, pool, palapa, beach and the ocean all the way to Cozumel. This coupled with the best beach in Playa, its closeness to 5th Ave. There is no better place to live or visit.

I was nervous about using Vrbo to book a stay outside of the US. This worked out great! We were traveling from the Syracuse NY area and knowing that the owner, Roger, lived locally in Playa Del Carmen and was English speaking was a big factor in choosing this place. View from the room is even better than shown in the pictures. Condos are the way to go. This unit had everything you would need as indicated in the description. It’s a great spot to do day trips from. We did Tulum, Chichen Itza, cenotes, and a fishing trip. Cozumel would be a very easy day trip as well is the ferry is less than a 5 minute walk. Yes, a 5 minute walk and you’re in the middle of a crazy busy shopping and restaurant area but you wouldn’t know it when you are in the complex or at the beach. We were visiting in January and the beach was not crowded. Very easy to find a lounge chair and umbrella every day. We did not use the swim up bar much but it is available until 5 PM. The pool bar has limited food choices. You do need to get a taxi or take a 25 minute walk to get any kind of real groceries (be sure to bring your own bags). There are ways to save a couple dollars on every taxi trip. We did find out that walking out of the complex past the gate there is a taxi service on the corner. But if you walk one block either direction of that, you can get taxis even cheaper. There is some kind of rule about what taxis can pick people up right at the main corner outside the gate. Just walk out a block or two and you should easily find one cheaper. There is more than enough bottled water supplied by the owner and ice was already made with the bottled water. The front desk staff at the complex speak English.Bed was comfortable. I usually would never go back to the same place twice because there are so many places in this world to see, but I could see myself coming back here.
Xaman Ha is close enough to walk to shopping and food, but also tucked quietly away from the noise. This condo is centrally located on the property which is a big plus!!!
Another perfect stay at Xaman Ha
Sharon was so warm and welcoming and we loved staying in her condo.
The views and warm ocean breeze is spectacular from the condo patio. The kitchen had everything we needed for preparing a light breakfast and lunch...condo was stocked with condiments and spices. 5th Ave is a quick walk from Xaman Ha and offers the most delicious and romantic dinners.
The master bed was comfortable with very nice bedding and soft pillows.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thanks so much Sharon!!!
Great location, super unit
Unit was fully stocked and had lots of leftovers (condiments, plastic wrap, etc.) (some owners throw those out before the next rental). Stones throw from the beach, great pool, great location (2 minute walk to everything - just south of the Cozumel ferry terminal). Owner very responsive to requests and super friendly. Would definitely recommend.
Wonderful place to stay in Playa del Carmen! The beach, the pool, our room were all with in a few minutes walk-- perfect for a family traveling with kids! Swim up bar with drinks and food was super fun and our kitchen was perfect when we wanted to eat in. We loved walking around playa each afternoon exploring and finding great restaurants off the beaten path. Kids loved it, we loved it!
Nice place right on the beach..You cant beat the view either
We rented the condo from Rodger for my 50th birthday and travel with my bonus sister and bonus brother for a week of celebrating.
Before the trip I emailed Rodger questions about ground transportation and his recommendation provided on time,clean van's with icey cold AC(its warm & humid until you aclamate so its neccessary) . We arrived at the condo, our first impression driving into the gated, 24-hour guard service was tropical jungle.
The property is well kept, clean and grounds were being groomed all day everyday.
Upon getting to the condo it was clean, furnished nicely with a kitchen full of cookware,ect. There was even beer(nonalcoholic) and a white wine in the fridge.
The beds are comfy, there is a generous king in the master that has a grand view and roaring sound of the ocean to lull you to sleep after a day of exploring ,it looks out to the pool with a swim up bar. The 2nd bedroom had a queen and bunk beds and is family friendly.
There are towels galore, and thick huge pool towels. The bathroom showers are large and have great water pressure. There is a wash machine and dryer.
Everything is walking distance and if you don't want to walk taxis are every where. Just note go out onto the main street or you'll pay 150 pesos insidenthe condo area where on the street it is about 75 pesos, it's still not expensive but we walked every where, even to Walmart for groceries(the condo has bottled water service but we enjoyed chilled water so we bought bottles to tote along while out exploring). There is board games for the kiddos if your traveling with,a pool that is family and adult friendly and beautiful song birds in the am with cute geckos, giant iguanas and agouti, which will Cruz by on the grass and if you so happen to have tortillas or fruit greens they love it. They are quiet,polite and fun to watch.
There is also a mall with Old Navy,Starbucks some restaurants and shopping close by.
Rodger is close to so if something breaks he is super quick to fix it, we had a toilet handle give out and it was less than an hour before he was at the condo,had it fixed and in the pool to meet happy hour (2-3pm) The pool is so clean and warm. Robyn, who is the bar tender is great, he talks to everyone and treats everyone as if he knew you forever. All in all it was a great place to stay with or without kids. By the way we asked why there isn't many current reviews and they have repeat vacationers that go directly to him
