Plantation house is in the best location on a quiet street yet blocks to the beach.The shops and bars of 5th ave are just one block away.Joe,the owner was quick to reply to any needs we had.The only thing I would change would be the outside shower,it needed a little more privacy for a 66year old woman.I would stay here again but get an apartment on the first floor instead of the third floor.
We are so happy we chose to stay here! Super charming apartment with great location and very well managed...the owner Joe was kind and helpful and clearly cares about this special place and making guests feel welcome and comfortable. Outstanding all around.

“Just absolutely perfect!”
This was the first time I had ever rented a vacation home/apartment in PDC. I have always stayed at resorts because I am a wedding photographer and my clients comp me. But the way I like to travel is this way. From the minute I contacted Francoise and Joe about this unit, they were very quick to reply and easy to deal with. Us and the owners being Canadians, we able to pay with Interac email, so I could avoid bank draft fees and/or PayPal fees. Usually, I would be worried about doing this, but because of the reviews left by the folks on here, I felt very confident everything would be all good. When we arrived in PDC I was so excited. I received an email with the code for the keybox outside. The apartment is on a pretty quiet street but only 1 block from 5th. We came onto the property and were greeted with a smiling Francoise to welcome us. I saw the stairs I would have to climb and thought, this will be quite the workout. But it was all good, they have a cute bag elevator to take your bags up. We walked into the unit and loved how roomy it was. The ceiling was nice and high and felt airy. The bed in the main bedroom was comfortable. We also loved that there was a private roof-top patio. The internet worked great, which was greatly appreciated. It was clean when we arrived. No complaints about dirty anything. We didn't use the TV or cook while we stayed there though. Because of the stairs, this unit can not be recommended for disabled people. Everything was just absolutely perfect with this unit. We felt safe, comfortable, relaxed and happy to be in a great location! We will stay here again for sure, 100%!
“Plantation House Stay”
This little gem is right in the heart of things! It's a wonderful private little place, that once you come off of the busy, tourist infested streets and walk through those massive doors, you are in a quiet little courtyard paradise. We initially wanted a 1 room penthouse, but none were available so we ended up on the top floor in the two bedroom, which turned out to be perfect for the two of us as we had coffee on our private deck in the morning and drinks before dinner enjoyed the birds and looking out over the gulf. We enjoyed every part of our stay in Playa Del Carmen, and hope to return!
“Great design, comfortable and perfect location - highly recommen”
My family just got back from 7 days in the Barbados Suite for Spring Break. The building is beautifully designed and architecturally interesting. The suite was beautiful - blue tiles, antiques, very nice linens and dishware. My husband and I had the main bedroom, and the kids slept up on the 2nd floor in twin beds (and had their own bathroom). The kitchen was very nice and well stocked. We brought our own coffee, and there was a coffee maker. There is a beautiful roof deck with view of the ocean and an outdoor shower. We loved all the floor-to-ceiling windows with big shutter doors and screens. It felt very bright and homey. The common area of the building is a shaded and lush courtyard with a small pool and lounge seating. It was a great spot to meet the other guests and our kids braved the cold water to cool off in the afternoons. Joe and Francoise were incredible. Joe met us at the door and got us settled. He gave us great recommendations for restaurants and places to go, and made us feel truly welcome. He helped us arrange transportation prior to the trip, and it all worked flawlessly. Franscoise stopped by to check on us and we had a very nice chat and she was very helpful. They both kept insisting that they were a phone call away if we needed anything - but we never had to take them up on it. Joe stopped back by later to let me know that he coud arrange for a private yoga class for me if I wanted it (I had asked him for a recommendation on a yoga class), and would arrange for in-room massage if we wanted. They could not be more helpful and kind. The beach is right around the corner, and 5th is close by for shopping/dining. We love finding the taco stands and fruit carts which were just a walk away as well. Loved this place, and hope to go back soon!
“Not your typical vacation condo!”
In 4 trips to Playa this was our 1st time in a condo. This one stands out from all the rest. Very unique. The owner Joe was very attentive to all of our needs during our stay. Of the 2 bedrooms, my husband and I ended up occupying the loft area. Our friends said they slept very well every night in the lower bedroom. There is a tiny little room with a toilet upstairs. We loved the deck and outdoor shower outside! The kitchen was fine for us. Good coffee maker! The location can't be beat! Walking distance to everything! We would rent at the Plantation House again. Loved the wonderful woman who worked in the candle shop below. It was great having bottled water available whenever we needed it. It would be nice for the owners to include a list of necessities they provide and what you need to supply yourself like toilet paper etc. Thanks Joe!
“Great place, great terrace”
I stayed at the Barbados Unit from March 17 till 24. It was great, everything that you can need is available. The terrace is great, I really miss it. Joe, the owner is very efficient. Is something wrong he will fix it right away. The location is perfect: 2 minutes from the beach and 2 minutes from 5th avenue. I really had an enjoyable stay and would recommend it to my friends.
I really dont think that I can say enough or do justice in words to this gem of a condo,I cant understand why some people want to go and stay in "quality"hotels that all look the same wherever you go when you can stay at this place!Joe and Francoise built this place themselves,I'm a bulder by trade and I recognise craftsmanship when I see it and they have put a lot into this place for sure,you are transported back in time but with all the modernities that you need,beautifully finished with great taste and elegance,I can assure you that you will love this place,the photos dont do it enough justice and all 4 of us still have that smile factor on our faces and I would feel so confident saying that anyone staying here and not liking it then I would pay thier bill!We stayed in the room with the mezzanine floor shown in the photos..I promised Joe an honest review and thats what i/weve done here,Paul,Mo,Sam and Christina send a special heartfelt thanks to Joe and Francoise for everything
“Perfect location at Playa del Carmen”
We were very pleased to stay at Plantation House Barbados unit. The layout and workmanship of the house was excellent, the owners were very pleasant and gave us good tips were to visit. I couldn't pick a better location than this Plantation House, very clean half a block from the beach 12th st and 5th ave, that is were all the action is. Thank you Joe and Françoise for a wonderful stayed at Playa del Carmen
