Magic Paradise condo description

Enter the idyllic tropical paradise that is Casa Beyá. This airy, spacious, newly constructed, 2 bedroom, 2 bath retreat is situated perfectly, just steps from both the pristine white sands of the Caribbean and the excitement of 5th Avenue. Stroll to Mamitas Beach, the jewel of Playa del Carmen, to while away the day, then head over to 5th Avenue, where you can shop late, dine al fresco at the Caribbean’s finest restaurants, and enjoy spectacular nightlife.

Let Casa Beyá be your private retreat, where every amenity assures you rest and tranquility. Our family-owned and maintained home is replete with custom-designed, handcrafted furniture, and all-marble floors and baths. The tastefully appointed living room features original art work, a balcony that overlooks the pool, wireless internet, an LCD TV with DVD player, and an iPod-ready stereo. The Master bedroom includes a handmade king-size bed, an intimate balcony overlooking the pool, and an adjoining private bathroom. The large second bedroom has two beautiful handmade full-size beds and adjoining bathroom bathroom entry. The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen boasts granite countertops and stainless steel European appliances. We also provide wireless internet service and a cell phone in the condo for you to use during your stay.

We welcome families at our condo, and provide a Pak n' Play portable crib with bedding, and a booster seat for mealtime.

We invite you to read the comments from our guests. We strive to provide every guest with a memorable vacation stay, and we're proud that 100% of our reviews are positive.

Playa del Carmen abounds with opportunities to explore the wonders of ancient Mayan ruins, ecotourism parks in the jungle, and snorkeling and diving on the second largest barrier reef in the world.

You'll be well cared for with free daily maid service, and property managers who can arrange tours and transportation, or stock the condo with groceries prior to your arrival. Nestled in a tranquil, landscaped courtyard building with on-duty security, Casa Beyá affords you the best that Playa Del Carmen has to offer. You will want to return again and again to this tropical seaside haven.

                      We loved the artistic decor in this beautiful condo 11/02/2013

                      VRBO Bear stayed here:

                      We have visited Playa del Carmen before, but this time we were lucky enough to spend two weeks in Marc's condo at Magic Paradise. It is by far the nicest accommodation we have had, and in a great location.

                      The condo has two spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms, two balconies, a beautifully (and artistically) decorated living space and a fully equipped kitchen. It was the perfect space for our family trip but would also be great for a couple or small group of friends.

                      The condo is just a block from Mamitas Beach which is the nicest in Playa - think white sand and aquamarine water - and being so close, we headed there twice a day!

                      A block in the other direction is Playa del Carmen's 5th Street, for pedestrians only - the ideal place for a sunset stroll, with its palm trees, small shops, artists' stands, restaurants and night life. The town showcases the best of a number of cultures - particularly in terms of food. We ate French crepes at La Crepacabana (highly recommended), fabulous tacos al pastor at Don Sirloin's and the world's best pizza at La Famiglia (though great pizza is easy to find in Playa.) The list of delicious places to eat is too long to mention here, but everything is within walking distance of the condo.

                      Marc could not have been more helpful in the lead up to our arrival. He has young children of his own and went as far as providing cribs for both our babies, speaking to the building managers about construction work being stopped at nap times and the lifesaver - his children's channel on Netflix! The management company was highly professional and friendly staff cleaned the condo daily, so all we had to do was relax and enjoy the sunshine.
