I’ve never rented a vacation home before. How does the experience differ from renting a hotel room for my vacation?
An individually owned home is more spacious and more private than a hotel room. You will have the entire home, including a fully-equipped kitchen and often more than one bath, at your disposal. You will not have, of course, room service or valet parking. But you can often arrange for daily maid service if you would like it. Just ask the reservation coordinator. In comparing cost, you will likely find that the cost per bedroom to rent a vacation home is significantly less than the same number of hotel rooms.
Is Playa del Carmen a safe place?
This has a frequently asked question by travelers. And the answer is YES! Playa del Carmen has a low crime rate, so chances are that the city where you live has a significantly higher crime rate that we do here in Playa! All the bad things we hear about Mexico in the news are related to the drug trade and that mainly takes place at the border with the U.S.. which is very very fat from the Riviera Maya.
Which Airport do we fly into?
Cancun International Airport is your best option which is located about 50 km north of Playa del Carmen; it will take you about 45 minutes via private shuttle from the Airport to Playa del Carmen. You should find direct flights from almost any major airport in the World.
What will I need to bring with me?
You need only to arrive with your personal items and your groceries. All of our properties come complete with bed and bath products and paper products.
Are all the utilities on in my vacation home when I arrive?

Can I make reservations at the last minute?
Yes, although it may be difficult during high season, don’t ever hesitate to call at the last minute—there just may be a cancellation. Always ask!
