Casa Dorothea
A Penthouse Condo with Private Rooftop Terrace - Close to Everything

Located just 2.5 blocks from the beach and 1.5 blocks from the fashionable and lively 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen, Casa Dorothea, a Penthouse Condominium, offers a haven that will make this your best vacation ever.  Casa Dorothea offers 2 bedrooms; one with a queen size bed and a balcony overlooking the courtyard swimming pool/waterfall and a 2nd bedroom featuring 2 twin beds.  There are 2 luxurious baths complete with marble and Tikal stone. The floor plan is open and airy with another balcony as the focal point of the living room.  Please tour the property by clicking on the pictures on the right of this page.

Restaurants and shopping are just steps from Casa Dorothea and a short stroll will bring you to the best beach in Playa del Carmen where you can dig your toes into the sand as you relax and soak up the fabulous sunshine, swim in the emerald Caribbean waters, or enjoy an umbrella drink and people watch.  Or ... if you prefer to stay "home" and lounge around Casa Dorothea for the day, then enjoy the Penthouse Terrace with the 6 person jacuzzi reflecting the waters of the Caribbean or stretch out on the built in sofa or relax and soak up the sun rays.

Downstairs in the beautiful courtyard ... you can always cool off with a swim in the courtyard swimming pool while enjoying the tropical foliage and the sounds of the waterfall.        View and Read More >>

About Us

Bienvenidos . . .  Welcome to our properties in Playa. We are Ron and Crystal Flauaus, Americans who have been coming to Playa del Carmen since 2000. Our properties are named after Ron’s mother, Dorothy, and like her, we want them to be full of warmth, laughter, love and good times. We are happy that we can share the properties with you and your family and we know that you will take care of our home and treat it like your own. We want you to be comfortable while enjoying our tropical retreat so you can soak up the tranquility, languish by the pools, stroll through the gardens, and explore all that Playa del Carmen has to offer.

In 2000, we started coming to Playa and staying at the all-inclusive resorts, then we rented and then finally took the plunge and bought property ... and never regretted it.  Once you leave the confines of a resort, you are free to truly enjoy a wonderful "Playa Experience".   We hope you'll also try living outside the resorts and discover all the wonderful things that the Playa area and our Hacienda have to offer.

We love to eat at the small local restaurants ... here we are (on right of both pictures) with friends at two of our favorite restaurants - LaBamba Jarocha (great seafood) on Av. 30 and at Mannes (great German food) on Calle 4.  Once you make your reservations, we will send you our complete list of our favorite off-5th Av restaurants and fun things to do in the Playa area.

When not spending the winter in Playa, we spend time on our farm, located in Central Pennsylvania or travel the USA in our Pop-Up camper.  Thank you for considering one of our properties as your tropical home away from home. Enjoy !

Thanks for Visiting Our Site, Ron and Crystal
