Oltreoceano condo description

Condo has POOL and is CLOSE to the BEACH! Read our reviews!
I cannot post a link but if you google for a Playa Del Carmen street map in the travel yucatan, you will see a very good street map to see how close it is to everything!
The unit is located in the Oltreoceano complex Street 10Bis North, between 15th Ave North and 20 Ave North Our condominium complex is directly below WalMart 2 streets over from the Yellow block which says Plaza Ayuntamiento
It is one of the more quiet and centrally located buildings in Playa only 2 short blocks to 5th Avenue and 5 to the beach. We are also only 2 short blocks from Walmart which is convenient for walking to get any supplies you may need. EVERYTHING IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE! Clubs, Coco Bongo, restaurants, beach, 5th Ave, shopping, ADO bus terminal, ATM, everything! Our building has a private pool and terrace area with very nice tropical plants. The building is very well maintained. We have a full time maintenance and gardening.
This is a great rental for a family with small children as the pool is inside our gated courtyard and just below our balcony in full view. The pool is very quiet and rarely used by other guests.

Within 10 minutes of the condo just a few blocks away is the ferry to Cozumel - You can walk to it. The ferry runs continuously all day long for those interested in the fantastic reef diving in the warm crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. 1 and 1/2 blocks from our condo is the bus station (from where you can travel to Mayan ruins, TULUM, Xcaret, Xel-Ha, the Biosphere Preserve, CANCUN, and many secluded beaches with terrific diving and snorkeling) as well as any water-sports that you care to enjoy.

The condo includes: WIRELESS INTERNET - PREMIUM CABLE CHANNELS - 2 CELL PHONES for your use while vacationing, PRIVATE Parking in front, an IN ROOM SAFE for your valuables and passports, a fully equipped kitchen with a gas stove / 4 burners, coffee maker, refrigerator, microwave, blender, toaster, rice cooker, as well as pots and pans / dishes / utensils.

If you have any concerns, our management company speaks, reads and writes; English and Spanish They are only a phone call away. They provide airport service, babysitting service,maid services are all available for an additional fee.

You don’t need to rent a car, direct bus service (ADO is the company, nice charter bus with air conditioning) from Cancun Airport to Playa del Carmen is very inexpensive.
Cost - [$10 USD] ONE WAY - Cash only

In Playa
Once you arrive to the bus terminal on Calle 2, you can either walk or take a cab for about $3.00 usd to our condo. The streets (Calles) run in increments of 2. Walk to 10 Bis from the bus station and you are on our street. The condo name is OLTREOCEANO.
** Please note, you CAN take the ADO bus from their Calle 12 terminal which is 1 1/2 blocks from our condo to the Airport. It is SO close, if you use the ADO bus, this is the place to depart from. It's almost at our condo door!

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About: Hello we are John and Dalen Castellanos and we have been married for 32 yrs and raised three lovely daughters. We love to travel, ski, horseback ride, camp, hike, read, boats, SCUBA, snorkel, fishing, dancing etc. We have traveled to Mexico many times to visit our adult daughter who decided to live and work there for a few years. On our trip in Jan 2008, we decided to buy our condo and use it for vacations as well as a rental property. We do our best to make the rental process very easy and affordable. The cell phones in the condo are charged with approximately 20 minutes air time and are very easy to use to call the USA from Mexico. Our rates include maid service upon your departure. Our propery managers speak English and Spanish fluently and are always ready to assist you should you need any guidance or care.

                      Why Oltreoceano:
                      We chose the location because it is so close to everything that having a car is not necessary. We chose this building because we wanted a building that has weathered hurricanes and is still standing. We are very happy with our choice and hope you will decide to spend some time in Playa Del Carmen enjoying our condo and all it has to offer.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      While staying in our condo we love to find new and interesting restaurants, visit the unpublished attractions such as Centoe Azul, Jardin De Eden, & Cristalino. We enjoy the VIP movie theater in Cancun with their wonderful leather recliners and low admission. We enjoy SCUBA diving, boating, snorkeling, relaxing on the beach and attending any festivals that may be going on during our stay. Playa Del Carmen is a beautiful, clean, calming atmosphere and we just love to come and be here. Dalen & John.
