Right across the beach in a quiet low density complex in the gated subdivision of Playacar I not to be confused with Playacar II which is located further away from the beach. We are 5 minutes away from shops and restaurants. This unit has been completely remodeled and retaining the character of the Region, the tropical location yet adding all the modern comforts and conveniences. Right across from the unit, the beach is just 50 steps away. Large terrace at the back overlooking the pool and BBQ area. Wrap around terrace on the Carribbean side and Mayan ruins park side. On the ground floor with no other unit overlooking your space, it offers total privacy, a perfect location and a luxurious space.

Where to begin!?
Marie was super helpful with pre-arrival info and was quick to allow us to drop off groceries and bags as soon as the previous renters were out. The house was spotless when we arrived. Tons of extra towels and sheets, beach towels. Kitchen has everything you need, including a bunch of spices, oil, and so on. Beds were super comfortable, AC was great for the occasional breeze-free day. Living space was everything you need: big TV, fast internet, well lit, comfortable couch, movies and books. Both bedrooms were special in their own ways. One opening onto a massive porch next to the pool with a full outdoor living room feel. The other opening onto the other massive porch overlooking the Mayan ruins and park with small views and sounds of the sea. We were with three kids under 5 and it was perfect. Marie dropped off a pack and play which we set up in the pool bedroom bathroom so the baby could nap while everyone else had fun. The two older kids each took a bed in the park facing room. Other notable perks: Three minute walk to the public access point to the beach, five minute walk to the start of 5th avenue shopping and dining. Perfectly maintained pool with both sun and shade, plenty of lounge chairs, a shallow end for kids. Four nice beach chairs and a really nice umbrella. Full-sized washer and dryer that both work great. Tons of parking if you have a car (which you really don't need unless your kids make you take them to the crocodile zoo twice in 10 days). Security guard booth just down the road with the same friendly faces every day, and frequent walk and drive bys of the area after dark.
What a place! We'll be back!! Thanks Marie!
Great rental close to the beach
Spent a few nights here with our two young children and it was great. Short walk to both the beach and to restaurants, shops, etc. Would definitely stay there again the next time we visit Playa del Carmen.
Loved the location and condo
Marie is very kind and helpful and answered all of our questions. The condo was in an amazing location close to the beach ( my girls counted 100 large steps😉�) and the little extras (pool toys and beach chairs) were a great treat. We walked everywhere and enjoyed our holiday. We will definitely recommend this condo to our friends. I gave it a 4 star rating as there, like all places, is always a few things that could be changed, such as the bed frame in the pool bedroom, it creaks every time you roll over and takes time to get use to it. But over all we enjoyed our 16 day stay.
Great experience. Loved it.
Pool is fantastic. Beach was good. Lots of seaweed on this trip. But, we would end up at the pool everyday. Great trip.
Five Star Rating!
Queridas Marie Y Caren - Muchas Gracias! We had a wonderful time at your place. It was the perfect location to be, in Playacar. We loved being so close to everything. Your tasteful fixtures, finishes, spaces, and systems make it incredibly easy to enjoy the setting and surroundings. We could not find good food, but we prepared a fantastic meal for ourselves and some guests. We entertained close friends on several occasions and quickly met others for an excursion to Cozumel. Perfecto! I'm sorry I broke one of the fine shot glasses. Thank you for the onsite discussion regarding the kitchen electricity. It is confusing. Clarity in the welcome packet about how to make it easier to have a hot shower would be great! Best VRBO ever! We are looking forward to returning! Until next time, Take Care! Pete and Gloria
Another great vacation at Casa Sonrisas!
This was our second stay here this year, we liked it so much the first time. This visit was with another couple and they were quite impressed with the accommodations as well. We find the location absolutely perfect for us. A few steps out and you are at the beach and not far from the shopping and people watching on 5th!
We found the showers quite slippery on our first visit, so I brought some shower mats with suction cups I picked up at the dollar store and left them behind. The shower in the ensuite to the "pool" side bedroom does not have a great shower head, the other shower is far better. The water heater is an "on demand" type, so it may take time for it to get to you. Once it does you may need to adjust the cold to get it right for you.
Waking early and having a coffee on the balcony overlooking the park with the ruins and all of the wildlife around is so amazing. There are a few cats around too. They sleep and sometimes hang out on the porch, they are friendly enough and don't bother you. The Siamese one did run into our condo a couple of times, all we did was say hello and he assumed that was his cue to go in!
I cannot wait to return and Caren's is first on my list of places to check availability!
Playacar I (not to be confused with Playacar II) is the best location in all of Playa del Carmen. It is the only gated community right on the beach and within a short walk to town center and all amenities like shops, massage, hairdresser, supermarkets, etc. Our complex Villas Archeologicas is a very low density unit, very quiet, well insulated. It has a very large and beautiful pool with sun chairs and a BBQ area with tables. You will find the pool is mostly quiet and empty as all guest favor crossing the street to our stunning white sandy beach. We provide beach chairs, umbrella, cooler for your beach comfort. If need anything you will probably find that it is within reach or already provided however if this is not the case we are owners residing in the same subdivision so just let us know and will do all we can to accommodate your needs.
