The Elements condo description

Elements is on the quieter north end of Playa del Carmen yet close to everything offered in this vacation destination. You can walk anywhere to shops, trendy nightclubs, happening beach clubs, and ethnic restaurants ( Italian, German, Swedish, and everything in between!) But you can also enjoy the peaceful pool and quiet Coco Beach if you want to get away from all the activity. You don't need to rent a car, since inexpensive transportation is available everywhere. You will hear many different languages spoken and the locals who enjoy practicing their language skills with vacationers are very respectful, sweet, and charming.

Our pool is an infinity pool and is the largest in Playa, and our decks are very large, 300 sq ft, terrazzo with glass railings. The condo is contemporary, upscale, and bright with floor to ceiling windows along the living room facing the deep turquoise Caribbean Sea!

Our screen door allows refreshing ocean breezes to sweep through the condo and extra light to filter inside. It adds a nice beachy ambiance and enables you to hear the birds and ocean waves.

All the amenities of home are here including full kitchen, drinking water, washer and dryer, ironing board, and great managers who will help you in any way during your stay. You are entitled to use all amenities at The Elements and our free concierge contacts all of our guests before their stay to help with anything they need as well as answering any questions they might have.

There is a business center with free computer access and a fitness center with Jacuzzi on the rooftop overlooking the ocean! Just give us a call or e mail if you have questions. We'd be happy to help in any way.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Hello from from North Carolina! If you're looking for a relaxing, or fun filled adventure tour type of vacation, either one is available in Playa del Carmen. I would love to share my dream condo with you and I know you will want to go back again and again to this magical place!

                  Why the Owner Chose The Elements:
                  Playa is such a unique place with friendly people everywhere, no road rage, and a 'Don't worry, Be Happy' attitude! I wanted a piece of this place, so stress free with the beautiful Caribbean at the front door!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  On Coco Beach you find more of a peaceful, get-away-from-it-all feeling, unlike an all-inclusive where you have to put a towel on a chair to reserve it for later. We are close enough to everything you want to see and do, and you can walk anywhere. Why not try a condo rather than an All-Inclusive this time? You will experience more of the culture in a very safe environment, and have a much more interesting vacation!
