True, we swore off airbnb last December after our horrific experience in Norway. But then, airbnb reached out to us personally and made good on the situation by offering us nearly a full refund back to our original form of payment. It still took us 8 months to forgive them, and we learned to be much more scrupulous in choosing a rental. This paid off in dividends during our trip to Playa del Carmen! We stayed in a fabulous airbnb in Playa del Carmen one block from the beach and one block from 5th Avenue with personalized touches, free parking, and a swimming pool at a great price!

Playa del Carmen airbnb
Magic 6B 2 Bedroom 6 People
Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Reserve Room


Aside from what you can see in the video tour above, this airbnb had all the comforts of home. The rooms were huge, with large comfortable beds. There were ceiling fans in each room and individual air conditioners that let you set the temperature for each room as well.

The kitchen was fully stocked, and the host even provided unique Mexican treats for us to enjoy when we arrived. This airbnb in Playa del Carmen even stocked the fridge with cold drinks, and we discovered our new favorite soda, Peñafiel!

Welcome gifts from our airbnb host

Three bathrooms ensure privacy, room to get ready for the day, and total convenience. There is a washer and dryer. There are extra towels.

As nice as the home was, it was really the location that couldn’t be beat. A five minute walk led us to numerous shops, restaurants, stores, vendors, ice cream, treats and everything we could want. We found several fabulous restaurants, we could walk to the beach, and we were in a locked complex that ensured safety.
