A lot depends on your budget, your willingness to get a car, your desire to close to the ocean, how close you want to be in town, etc... Renting for a year isn't a bad way to start just to see how you like the specific area and have more time to explore different areas.

A few other places to check out if you like Playacar that would be worth checking out would be Pok-ta-Pok in Cancun, Selvamar/Mayakoba area on the other side of Playa, and Puerto Aventuras. Even if you already have eliminated any of those areas, it's at least worth looking at some houses there just so you know what you're comparing against.

We don't really want to be in the centre of town because of noise, crowds etc, are there any other areas similar to Playacar in the area we should consider? We would want to be within a short walk to the beach.
