Playa del Carmen, Yucatan Peninsula
Playa's most unique Caribbean beach condo. The one bedroom penthouse suites at the Plantation house present a refined collaboration of Classic and exotic elements. With Caribbean features like detailed wood finishes, white shutters, plus authentic artisan finishes like our antique colored floors, handmade furnishings, tropical wood floors.

Interaction with guests
I'm living in Playa year round and just a phone call away should you need assistance. I generally pop by and check that things are in order every day. I don't knock on doors just to introduce myself, respecting your privacy and desire to be at peace inside your vacation home. But if you would like to meet me, I'm happy to stop by and meet new guests! Our maid Virginia or Lurdes are very trustworthy and will come by to clean your suite a few times in the week. You can request that she come at an earlier or later time of day up until 3pm.

The name Plantation House suits this building exactly: colonial looking, quaint, eclectic and charming. We rented the 1-bedroom called St. Lucia, which was on the top (3rd) floor. Comfortable bed, good amenities, very clean. The deck off the bedroom upstairs was a big plus: two deck chairs overlooking the ocean in the not-too-far distance, exactly as shown in the photo....

Plantation House – Very pretty, a Caribbean-style place with a very cold, plunge pool (thank goodness as it was hot!) in the central courtyard. We stayed in “St. Bart’s” on the 3rd floor of the rear bldg. This is 3 flights up to a small living/dining combo, 1 bath with shower & small kitchenette. We did not cook but reheated...

About the neighbourhood
The Plantation house is in a great location just a block from the beach and also a block from 5th avenue's cafes and shops! Just a minute's walk to enjoy either of these day and evening destinations. First ave ( Avenida 1) where we are has beautiful mature trees, and our block plus the blocks around us are residential with hotels,condos and homes. There are a few restaurants and a gym just 70 meters from us. We have 1 off street parking space which can be reserved.
Getting around
Since we are s well located. Walking will get you to most interests in town. If you want to explore further down the coast. We can suggest several options like hiring a taxi, bus, or colectivo. Sometimes renting a car for a day or two is helpful too.

The Plantation house is on Primera avenida, which runs parallel with the beach and 5th avenida ( pedestrian walkway) right in between them, just one block from each ! Between Calles 14 and 16, its very central yet on a quiet block. Coming from the Cancun Airport, we can suggest and arrange shuttle service and private rides at great prices.
