The beach house was clean and located in the middle of a bunch of hotels. We were the envy of the beach. We shared the expenses between 9 people so the economy of it was excellent. The only problem we had was there was only one key for the security gate, and we had problems with getting in and out at will. At one point point we were locked out by neighboring security guards who would not recognize that we were the tenents of the beach house.

5 of 5
Overall it was a wonderful stay and plan on this being our rental when we come to Playa. We have stayed in 3 different rentals before and this is by far our favorite. It hit all my wants in a property. Quiet yet close enough to the beach and restaurants. Cozy and quint it's not just your typical condo. We felt very safe as the main door to the condos is locked and our actual condo. The host was kind enough to join the twin beds in the upstairs loft and make it a king for us as we are a couple staying with another couple. Love the decor and attention to detail. We only had a few different things that put a very mild hamper on our stay. The first night my husband and I stayed upstairs in the loft the AC was not working well. It woke us up many times in the night having to strip down our clothes. We tried fixing it ourselves but could not figure it out for the life of us and my husband is good with stuff like this. We did mention it to the host and it was fixed the very next day. He was very responsive so we really appreciate it, no problems after that first night. The outdoor shower was awesome and we would have really enjoyed a shower out there more but it was hard to adjust the temperature and the pressure was very low. We did conserve on water involuntarily so that's a good thing! I always try to look on the brighter side! but having a better outdoor shower experience would have been awesome. Last thing was the couch, while we loved how it matched the decor it was not comfortable to sit on. I have to say we didn't spend much time in our condo as we like to rent a car and explore the area but having a place to relax after a long day on the beach that is not in bed would have been great. Overall these are small things and the AC was fixed the first night. We plan to stay here again and again most definitely.
