“MOST AMAZING VACATION!”
We had the most amazing vacation at La Vida Loca! We had 8 people in our party and this house was PERFECT! The house is beautiful and comfortable and has everything you need to feel right at home. We spent most of our time in the back yard on the patio and in the pool but the beach and town are just a short 10-15 min walk. I cannot say enough about Claudia and Dan! Claudia arranged all of our ground transportation and did some grocery shopping for us so we were welcomed with a stocked kitchen and cold Dos Equis after a long day of travel! Dan met us at the house and answered all of our questions about the house as well as things to do and places to eat. But most importantly they handled a disaster for me! I realized on the way to the airport that my wedding ring had been left in the safe and I called Claudia in a panic! She in turn called Dan who was at the house and he found it! Claudia graciously offered to take time out of her busy schedule to meet some friends of ours in town so they could bring it back home to me! I would have never seen that ring again if we had stayed at most other places. Claudia and Dan's honesty and integrity is what sets Vacation Playa apart and I will be forever grateful for them! I WILL be calling them again for our next Playa vacation and recommending them to all my friends!
“Awesome Home Paradise”
This Casa is above anything else I have stayed in, with regards to enjoying a vacation home rental. Secluded, private and secure, but still only a five minute trail walk to miles of Playa beaches. From bedrooms to pool area at this residence, you can't go wrong !!!!!
“Vacation with ease”
This Villa reflects the pictures and video accurately. And, just as importantly, the housekeeping was excellent. Our showers weren't warm enough - the next day, adjusted. Ran low on drinking water - the next day, supplied. The fan/light stopped, the next day repaired. The Villa is secluded and yet it's only a 6 minute walk East to the beach or a 7 minute walk North to the shops and curios of old Mexico. 10 of us had plenty of room to be together for games or to be alone with a provided book. Quality beach towels and many treasures hidden under the beautiful dark wooden stairs. The warm sun, white sand and red toenail polish. Vacation.
“" 7 Amigos in a perfect house "”
Wow !! What a house , This place was perfect for our group of 7 guys on our annual "boys trip" The home had all the amenities from the pool to outdoor patio where we spent most of our time , the rooftop patio was also great as you get an extra hour of sun to enjoy the end of the day with great views and some cold cerveza . The location is close to Town with maybe a 10 minute walk which we did everday , the Beach is about the same distance . I have been to Playa del Carmen for the past 15 years for 10 days in February every year , I've stayed at many locations and this is bar none ….The best ! Playa is a fun party atmosphere but has grown so much that it's hard to escape the overall noise from the music when you stay right in town , this is why I think this home has it all been close to town but with absolute solitude at night for some great sleeps , you wake up well rested and ready for whatever venture you have the next day . Both Dan & Clau were excellent to deal with , very professional and there when you needed them but left you alone to enjoy your stay . We will definitely be back to Villa La Vida Loca and recommend this property 100% . Salute !
“Fantastic Christmas & New Year at La Vida Loca”
We spent 14 nights at La Vida Loca over the Christmas & New Year holiday. We were 3 families (12 people) ranging from 10 years old to 73 years old. La Vida Loca was the PERFECT house for our holiday. It is spacious with lots of room for sleeping and moving around and never once did we feel crowded in the house. It was kept very clean by the house cleaner every couple days and Dan dropped by almost daily to make sure we were okay and had everything we needed. He was even kind enough to drive us to the pizza place on the first night we arrived to place an order for pizza's and then gave them the address so they could deliver them back to the house once they were ready. At one point we started to notice a few bugs around the house (you are in the jungle after all) and Dan was quick to stop by and spray everything down for us which helped. The house is in a beautiful location just beside a bird sanctuary and is very secluded. You do have to walk to the beach and Quinta Avenida but it's really not that far - maybe 10 mins at most. None of our younger kids or our seniors complained about the walk and honestly, I felt better walking every day to go for dinner because I felt like I earned my meal by the time we got to where we were going. You also have the option of taking a taxi too so for those who are unable to walk long distances, that option is availabe. The outdoor patio area was my favorite place of the house! Equipped with 2 bar fridges (that kept the beer really cold) and an outdoor grill beside a beautiful pool. We spent most of our time there rather than at the beach just becuase it was so peaceful and perfect. There are several large grocery store chains near by (about 20-30mins to walk to) where we were able to get everything we needed and then we grabbed a taxi back for 70-90pesos. It might not hurt to learn how to give directions in spanish if you take this route...i was glad I was able to do that - it came in handy several times as a lot of cab drivers did not know how to get to this house. We spend New Years Eve up on the roof top which was fantastic. We could see the fireworks and all the beautiful chinese lanterns we lit from the beach and floating up over the house. All in all this was a great holiday house! I would recommend it to anyone.
“Gorgeous house, perfect for a small group!”
Clau was incredibly accommodating and helpful during the booking process and during our stay. I traveled to Playa del Carmen for my birthday with a small group of friends and Villa La Vida Loca was the perfect location. 10 minutes from everything if you even wanted to leave! We had a private chef one night that prepared an incredible spread for my birthday dinner. It was extremely affordable and delicious, we ate the leftovers for the next few days!
“Beautiful Villa with All the Bells & Whistles!”
Dear Clau and Dan, once again thanks for a fabulous stay at La Vida Loca. The house is beyond exceptional & pictures don't quite do it justice! You have to see it to believe it. The house is HUGE & custom built with beautiful unique touches. Master bedrooms & bathrooms, large, open,airy, & fully stocked with everything you could want. The house is immaculate, and maid service/pool service & gardeners comes on a regular basis. Dan checked on us frequently & helped us with anything we needed & actually anticipated things before we needed his help! He also offered excellent suggestions for day trips and ensured all was well. Gracias Dan! We loved the pool/waterfalls & the large outdoor terrace with beautiful patio furniture which is surrounded by lovely palm trees & flowers. On occasion we'd see some wildlife (bird aviary is close by). We enjoyed outdoor music, and the house enjoys flat screen TVs/DVD/CD player to meet all your needs. There is a large rooftop with loungers/bar to relax & enjoy the tropical jungle views (wonderful for picture taking). It is a beautiful walk into Playa (10-15 mins) with cabs going by if you need to take one. There are also many small cafes to pick up take-out including a wonderful coffee shop. (Don't miss a massage at Kristine's Spa-excellent pedi/manis too) The house has fold up chairs/umbrellas/coolers you can use for the beach, although it is hard to leave this amazing house for any length of time. We'd rent again in a heart-beat because the villa is 5 star but also because Clau & Dan take such pride in their service and want to ensure your holiday in Playa is fabulous.(As for the 2 negative reviews on this site, completely disregard. We experienced none of those issues; you just have to use common sense when in the tropics. (Please note I work in Playa, & know the area well & am familiar with many houses in Playacar, and this house, hands down is one of the best). Thank you / gracias from Sally, Allan & Family (Ottawa). Hope to see you soon!
“Great set-up and pool area!”
Large group of friends stayed for 4 days in May. The house was spacious (we had 18 people) with plenty of bed space, bathrooms, and kitchen/living area. The pool area was great - lots of space and bar area was great. The rooftop deck was nice as well. The location was alright, about a 10-15 minute walk into town (to senior frogs) and short 5 minute walk to the beach. The management company was very responsive and assisted in planning all of our other activities while on vacation. Would highly recommend.
“Villa Vida Loca- wow!!”
My best friend and I decided to treat our children and grandchildren to a Riviera Maya trip to celebrate our 60th birthdays. We hit the birthday jackpot when we found this house. There were 14 of us in two families with 3 generations including 4 grandchildren ages 3 and under. Every couple had their own bedroom suite including private baths and lots of closet space. The beds were extremely comfortable and the bedding deluxe and spotless. All bedrooms had access to patios or balconies. There are three living areas in the home as well as the beautiful pool area with a wading pool for our little ones!! The outdoor furniture looked brand new and was super comfortable. There were even floats and pool toys waiting for us as well as a shady hammock and outdoor shower. Two small outdoor refrigerators, a sink and large gas grill made for a great outdoor cooking area. I have never seen a kitchen in a rental that was so well stocked! Filtered water was available at the kitchen sink and through a large water cooler. We never ran out of clean plates, silverware or glassware. Clau was able to set up a chef prepared dinner night complete with a delicious birthday cake. We enjoyed the lovely birthday celebration on the enormous rooftop patio complete with a half-bath, swings and bar area. The sea breeze on the roof at night is delightful. The walk to the beach was a little difficult with 4 little ones but the trek was well worth the effort. We were usually the only people on the gorgeous sugar sand beach. There were beach chairs, beach towels (probably 50!), mats, umbrellas, toys and even some extra beach hats available in a storage area under the stairwell. This house has it all!! 5th avenue was an easy walk with strollers. The airport transportation and day trips set up by Clau are highly recommended. This architectural details in the villa are amazing. You will never want to leave! We cannot wait until our next trip to Playa and the beautiful Villa Vida Loca.
“Fabulous vacation in Playa”
We enjoyed our stay at La Vida Loca. Because of our late arrival we arranged for food to be catered and it was excellent. The location of the house is very convienent, a short 10 minute walk to both avenue Five and the beach. Cabs are 7-9 dollars depending on who you get. Toilet paper cannot be flushed and the cleaning service comes only twice during the week. It needs to be picked up daily. It's a very nice house and very comfortable. One of the upstairs bedrooms has no blinds but that didn't affect us because we are only 4 couples.
