1 Full bath, 1 Half bath
Upper Toltec House is located in a vibrant residential neighbourhood a short walk from Playa's best beach. It is a luxury penthouse built in 2011 in a modern, classic, style and is perfect for one or two couples interested in living and entertaining in relaxed luxury. Cool macedonian marble floors are laid in a dressy herringbone pattern and polished to a high gloss. The interior champagne and glass interior handrails are contemporary and airy and the tzalam wood headboard and exterior finishings are warm and inviting. The jewels of the home are a spacious kitchen fully stocked by professional chef and a large rooftop patio for dining and entertaining al fresco under the stars. From the 1,000 thread count sheets on the king-sized luxury pillow top beds to the stainless steel high-pressure rain shower, to the flat-screen televisions and the high-end stereo receiver, the penthouse is superbly appointed. This is a private home, not a condo in a condo complex, with a perfect location for experiencing the best local culture Playa has to offer. It has easy access to 5th avenue and its shops, restaurants and nightlife without any of throbbing nightlife noise. If you want to play tourist some of Playa's best italian food is down the street. Or go off the beaten track at one of the many nearby fresh, local taquerias. Or stay home for a home-made calzone baked in our convection oven on a pizza stone enjoyed with a glass of wine. Kick back and relax, you will be glad you came.
Please note! There is construction going on in Playa all the time. Most hotels and vacation rentals will not tell you if there is construction nearby. We, however, are different. We have dramatically reduced rates for the balance of 2017 and early 2018 because one of our neighbours is renovating his house and there is the possibility of construction noise from 9am to 5pm on weekdays and until 2pm on Saturdays. If you are planning to be at the beach and view the sites during your stay, this is a great opportunity to visit Toltec House at a price you will not see again. Contact us for more details.

“Perfect in every way!”
We stayed here for a week and it couldn't have been better. The place is perfectly located - close enough to everything that you can walk to things, and far enough away to keep things quiet and remote-feeling. Rooftop patio is amazing, and the art work throughout the house makes everything feel special. The hosts go out of their way to fill the place with special touches. I would stay here again for sure.
“Excellent place near the beach”
This was the first time we had a prolonged vacation, and we decided to stay at Toltec House for four weeks and it was fantastic. Is very close to the beach and we practically were everywhere by walking: restaurants, shops, supermarket. In the kitchen there are excellent supplements to cook anything you want, and nearby there are some fantastic shops with organic products. Also, is very comfortable and quiet. We definitely recommend Toltec House.
“Home away from home.”
Toltec House is a truly wonderful place. We have vacationed in the Playa del Carmen area for the last 13 years, and without a doubt Toltec House was our most enjoyable experience. We truly felt as we were in our home away from home. I highly recommend Toltec House, and it is pet friendly. :)
“Wonderful peace & quiet !”
The Toltec House is located on the north end just off of 5th ave. and easy access to shopping on 5th and some of the best dinning in all of Playa ! What a beautifully maintained home this is complete with hammock off the deck on the ground floor, brand new washer & dryer, totally fenced in for your privacy. Very reasonably priced and the 2 bed, 2 bath areas make it so nice to share with your friends ! We would definitely stay here again as all the appliances makes it so easy to cook at home while you stay if you wish. Love it, Love it, Love it !
“Luxury Home away From Home”
Toltec House felt like home (but far more elegant) the moment you walked in the door. Everything you need is in the well-equiped kitchen; the living area is comfortable and relaxing; the bedrooms are beautiful with far more comfortable mattresses than any hotel provides; and the bathroom was clean and high-end in fixtures and decor. What's more is the balcony with the shaded outdoor seating and the upstairs patio complete with BBQ and sink, and Toltec House is pet-friendly to boot! The location cannot be beat! You're a quick walk to the beach, groceries, shopping, restaurants, cafes, and anything else you could want in Playa.
“Absolutely Phenomenal Stay!!”
I have to say I absolutely adored Toltect House! It goes along fabulously with the town of Playa del Carmen. Located on 26th in between 20th and 25th you are a 7 minute walk to the beach (and this is a leisurely pace). To the beach at the Centro Square (near the ado bus or 5th and 1st) is about a 20 minute walk. I stayed for 11 days and also loved the fact that Playa is situated in the middle of it all. You are close to ruins such as Coba, Tulum, and Ek Balam, and breathtaking cenotes such as Dos Ojos, Chac Mool, and Chaak Tun. I would highly recommend Coba and Ek Balam as you can walk on them and they are far less commercial than Chichen and Tulum. I did some diving in Playa which was spectacular but by far Chac Mool and Kulkulkan is the place to be - it has a halo cline for avid divers! Xcaret (reserve theme park) is also a 5$ and 15 minute bus ride away. P.s. the ado bus in Playa will bring you to most places from 5$ to a max of 30$. Back to the accommodations...not only was the location great but the top unit was state of the art. It is essentially a two floor house, with a full brand new (marble) kitchen, a wall mounted flat screen TV for rainy days, a balcony with chairs and speakers for a nice evening drink, air conditioning for the hot blooded, and a roof top bar for leisurely suppers (although Playa has some amazing food spots for relatively cheap prices...Piola's was definitely my favorite! Try the basil martini - its not on the menu but the locals know what they're talking about). The place was absolutely spotless and the owners have stocked almost all necessities in case you forget an item or two. Also, as a single female traveler, I must say I felt entirely safe! There is a gate surrounding the house that locks from both the outside and the inside; however, you don't get a segregated feeling as you walk into a lovely garden on your way in. Okay so as you can see I loved this place! I would definitely go back :D Thanks Toltec house!!
“Un séjour incroyable et la meilleure option pour Playa del Carme”
J`ai passé une semaine dans un des deux logis disponible dans cette résidence impeccable. Aussitôt qu`on tourne la clé pour pénétrer les lieux, nous sommes parmis des plantes et jardins minutieusement soignés. Il est évident qu`Ursula et son mari ont investi beaucoup dans cette propriété. Le décor est très impressionnant ainsi que l`attention au détail. Les salles de bain sont immaculées, les literies aussi. Il y a amplement d`eau chaude même si je préfère l`eau tiède/froide après avoir passé du temps à l`extérieur. Bref, selon moi, il n`y a pas d`autres options si vous voulez passer un séjour de rève sans soucis à Playa. Lors de ma prochaine visite à PDC, c`est certain que je retournerai à Casa Toltec! Merci Ursula et Sergio pour m`avoir accordé le privilège de pouvoir louer ce vrai bijou !
“Lovely apartment in a great location”
We highly recommend this unit for your Playa del Carmen vacation. We stayed here 10 days and nights in February and it is a beautiful apartment with top notch amenities. It has a modern kitchen, beautiful bathroom (we especially loved the shower) and a gorgeous rooftop patio to hang out in the evening and enjoy the warm breezes. The apartment is located a mere 5 minute walk (about 2.5 blocks) from the 5th avenue shopping and dining and another 5 minutes (2 more blocks) to the best beach in Playa. There are terrific restaurants all around and we tried almost every one on the owner's list of suggested eating places. It is also very close to a large grocery store (Mega) where we purchased everything we needed to cook ourselves breakfast every morning. We also highly recommend the Nativo restaurant on 30th where we went for a litre of fresh juice every morning. Check in and out was very easy and the owners were always available to answer any questions we had. All in all we very much enjoyed our stay here and we definitely will go back one day.
“Love the Toltec House!!”
My wife and I especially enjoyed our stay at the Toltec house, it truly felt like a home away from home. The high end kitchen has everything you need to prepare any meal with lots of great natural light. All the amenities of the house were impressive but two features really stand out - the bedroom and the roof top patio. The bed like everything else was top quality and very comfortable but the best part was the natural light and beautiful breeze that kept it at the perfect temperature. Lying there in the late afternoon with the breeze going through the trees was the ideal place for a siesta. The roof top patio is an awesome place to have your morning coffee and your afternoon cocktails, a nice Weber BBQ and speakers for music make it a great place to hang out. After dark you can lay back and see the stars or watch the clouds fly by with the breeze. I would definitely recommend the Toltec house and plan to stay there in the future.
“A heavenly get away...”
Beautiful and clean rental only 2 blocks from the popular promenade and great restaurants. Friendly owners provided great advice on things to do, places to go and especially yummy restaurants. Unit came with very modern luxuries including a fully stocked kitchen and great BBQ not to mention the free wifi. Roof top patio was a perfect place to wind down after a day on the beach (only a few blocks away). Location was the perfect balance of "tourist" and "local". Only 5 minutes away from the popular tourist haunts but quiet enough to ensure a restful and peaceful sleep. Owners went out of their way to ensure our stay was top notch. Very service oriented. Can't wait to get back!!
