Melinda's place is secret and unexpected (in a good way of course), real hideaway in this area of Playa. It's like a sacred garden in the middle of chaos of civilization, full of madgick and dreams. Old fashioned house covered by the shade of trees was our shelter for the time of visit. I think it is much better then property in playacar, where is little sense of of indifference, as it bordered with the city. At the same time all parks there are few minutes near. And this "organic " architecture always bring cool air during the day and night, so you never feel tired at all.

Playa del carmen is a great place to visit and do different excursions from. We went to tulum for the day and Cozumel and it was wonderful. Also just walk to the beach for sitting around all day Closer to locals end of town where everything is less expensive too!

We stayed at Melinda's place for one week and enjoyed it a lot. Perfect location, gorgeous garden terrace, spacious and charming apartment with perfect temperature inside. We felt super safe and comfortable. We are missing the place already! The only tiny minus was the noise level. Our stay there coincided with a music fest/carnaval and some nights it was so noisy that we had a hard time falling asleep. However considering how small downtown is it seems that any place would have the same problem unless one decides to stay in a boring hotel with AC etc.. Just bring earplugs and you'll have a wonderful time.

We regret that we didn't stay for our entire 12 days in Playa. Did the first four nights at Melinda's and now paying $50 more per night to stay in a place we don't like as much in Playacar. The location is very central and convenient to everything we needed. I'd give it 4-1/2 stars if I could (not five) because the sheets, linens, bath towels and handtowels were very old but that wouldn't stop me from recommending this place to a friend. Two thumbs up!

This place is cute, charming and in a great location . We were able to walk right to 5th ave every night and felt very safe walking home even at midnight . I stayed with my daughter and we had plenty of space . There is no air conditioning but plenty of fans and windows to open . We were never too warm . Good grocery store within walking distance . Kitchen has everything you need . We were a little disappointed there was no toaster or microwave but we made do with toasting our bread on the stove in a frying pan . We only cooked breakfast every morning because there are just too many good choices of restaurants on 5th ave . We tried as any as we could . Loved them all ! Only drawback I would say is that there was a little bar on the corner that boomed their music all night long . It disturbed our sleep a few times . However, my daughter and I are very light sleepers and are used to quiet . We just compromised and wore headphones with white noise playing . The bar did get quieter later during the week which was great ! We would not hesitate to stay at this place again ! Very good value for the money !

Melinda was a great host! For our stay it was ok. We rented Biker so we were very flexible. Mexico is great and we enjoy our stay. Txs

I am originally from California, actually from the monterey/ san francisco area. I moved to mexico almost 30 years ago never thinking I would stay for so long but two children later and many businesses later....I'm still here and its good. Playa has been good to me and my family. This year I put the healing center which is a co op of different healers and therapists. It is a good extension of the family I already have.
