Playa del Carmen, Mexico
I have been enjoying the homes of the Airbnb website for a couple of years now. The first time I tried it I ended up spending time with an artistic Argentinean brother and sister who made me feel at home in their beautiful wooden Airbnb house. This time I found a place to stay through Airbnb again and my boyfriend and I made it our home away in Playa del Carmen.
Getting to our Airbnb home
From the local ADO bus station in Playa del Carmen we had to walk 30 minutes to reach our accommodation. We could have taken a taxi, while we assumed that we could find it easily enough to walk with our backpacks for a while. That was pretty much the case. We only had to look on the map once or twice, compare the address to the street names and we ended up ringing the doorbell soon enough.
I already received the WiFi codes before arrival through the Airbnb messages. That way I could access their internet at the doorstep. We weren’t sure if anyone was home as it wasn’t clear if the hosts were living at this house or if they only hosted it. Ten minutes after sending a message one of the two hosts greeted us and showed us the house.
The ‘casa de los sueños’
The house ‘casa de los sueños’ is completely constructed by people who come from the prison and need to integrate in the society again. They have done a great job! There are two bedrooms with private bathrooms. One on the ground floor and one on the second floor. The bedroom on the ground floor has a big bath in the private bathroom and direct access to the garden with its pool. We choose to stay in the ground floor bedroom. The only down side of this room is that you see through the windows from the outside once it’s dark and you turn the lights on inside the room. This is not the case during the day with daylight. There is also a spacious kitchen, a living room with sofa and TV and there is a guest toilet near the living room.
Peaceful, clean, comfy and romantic. Here we could spend some more time!”
It’s only a fifteen minutes walk to the beach and to the famous shopping and dining street Quinta Avenida. Personally, I enjoy this house as it has an ecologic vibe and it seems very peaceful. You can practice yoga or meditate and nobody would bother you. If there are other people staying in the second room you don’t need to bump into each other all the time either. The hosts are not living in the same house yet they’re there when you need them.
Is this home fully booked yet you want to stay in Playa del Carmen? No worries! There are plenty of great other options as well on Airbnb for you to have a look at.
