Casa Tambuuco and Mariano and simply a delight! This was our first time in Playa Del Carmen and definitely not our last. We needed a short but relaxing getaway from city life by the water and Mariano and his staff (Isabelita & Guadaloupe) were gracious and welcoming from the minute we walked through the door. (The homemade, fresh breakfast each morning was something to always look forward to!) The house is located seconds from the beautiful and secluded beach! It's a great area to relax and unwind.. no loud music or overcrowded waters like other beaches we visited closer to 5th Ave. Our room was even more beautiful than in the photos! Mariano's home is truly a gem and he is a wonderful host full of knowledge. We enjoyed our conversations with him during breakfast and he recommended a few places to try. Staying there we also had a chance to borrow bicycles to ride into the main part of town which cut taxi costs and it was a beautiful way to see the town. Overall--you will not regret your time at Casa Tambuuco!

Mariano's place is large and very comfortable. The staff are excellent and Mariano himself is a very interesting and gracious host. The beach is very close and beautiful. All in this was an excellent stay and we hope to return soon.

Our stay at Mariano's house was a real pleasure. The house is located in a quiet area at only 10 minutes walk from the city centre and just 50 meters of the beach. Isabel and Abraham made our stay even more comfortable with their tips, help and wonderful breakfasts during our trip. A perfect choice if you want to stay at Playa del Carmen.

Mariano's place was amazing! We picked this place because we wanted privacy and wanted to feel like we were in old Mexico. The neighborhood is the most beautiful neighborhood in all of Playa. We know because we rode his bikes everyday all through out the town. The beach is literally 1 block away and private. Our ocean view from our room was breathtaking. The bed was very comfortable! Breakfast by Miss Isabella was fabulous. She doesn't speak much english but we used an app on our phone to speak to her in spanish. Everyday we had ham & eggs,beans,avacado,cheese,tortillas, crossants, fresh fruit, granola, yogart, coffee and fresh squeezed orange or papaya juice. I even requested fresh mango and kiwi one day and she had it for me the next morning. My only complaints is that we had to walk four flights of stairs to our room which is not a big deal if your in good shape and the shower took 3-5 minutes to get hot which isn't to big of a deal either. We are very happy that we found this gem!!

Our ten day stay at Casa Tambucco was fabulous! Mariano and his staff treated us very well. The home itself is beautiful inside and out. Beautiful architecture! Every day we had a wonderful breakfast and some interesting conversations with the staff. I will miss lying on the bench under the window feeling the warm ocean breeze and the spectacular view of the ocean. The closeness to the beach and Playa del Carmen was great. Everyone should experience a stay like this at least once in their life time. A special thank you to Mariano and his staff and to all the beautiful Mexican people we met on our visit.

Mariano's house is an eden. From the moment his housekeeper Guadalupe welcomed us upon our arrival we felt as though we had become part of the family. The house itself is gorgeous, the room impeccably clean with plenty of windows for ocean breezes, a small balcony, huge shower, comfortable bed, cold fridge, quiet AC unit if needed, tasteful decor, and a wall of travel books one could get lost in while lounging in the hammock. We were treated every morning to a traditional breakfast prepared by Isabella, the resident chef, fresh fruit, yogurt, huevos mexicanos, quesadillas, (anywhere from 8 - noon so hard to miss and cooked to order). The beach is two blocks down the street and way more private than those typical to Playa del Carmen as the house is located in the Playacar residential area. There aren't any stores or restaurants in this area so would recommend stocking up on some items if you're staying for a few days. Mariano had bikes available 24/7 and we used them a lot to go into town (about a 5 min ride, 15 min walking). Mariano lives in the house and is readily available with any questions you may have. Couldn't recommend Mariano's place enough and wouldn't think twice about staying there again. In fact wishing I was there right now..........

We stayed with Mariano over the New Years and had an amazing time! His place is secluded away from the city centre - but only a 10minute walk to get to the city. It is also within walking distance to the beach - which is ideal. Mariano speaks fluent English and is easy to communicate with. His house keeps are extremely pleasant and helpful when ever needed. We definitely recommend Mariano's place if ever considering staying at Playa. We will be returning, and no doubt we'll stay with Mariano again.

After living in the post-jet set Acapulco, I wanted a change of sea.

And while I was searching, I found this corner of the Caribbean; this place that bewitched me with its history and its air of mystery. And here is where I built my new “old” house. I made it of stone and very spacious, and I brought with me memories and my old family furniture.

I hired a good cook so I could lavish attention on my friends and the friends of my friends. And that is what I have been doing here for the past 15 years.
