When we were looking for a vacation home in Playa Del Carmen the biggest consideration was to find the property that would make the best vacation rental and we believe we found this with the newly constructed El Faro luxury suites. El Faro is truly unique in that it has the best combination of everything people are looking for in a vacation rental. Being beach front is a great benefit and not only is it on the ocean but its central location in Playa is simply unmatched. Being located on the beach in the heart of Playa at the famous Lighthouse on 10th street is absolutely perfect. You may leave your car behind as you can walk to everything and transportation is excellent. El Faro is situated on a long stretch of the beach so it is like you are tucked away in an oasis right in the heart of all the action. The famous 5th avenue is so close that you probably won't even break a sweat on the short walk up there even on a hot day. But don't worry even if you do start to perspire the ocean is literally only a few steps away waiting to cool you off. Or if you can't make it past the hot sand to the beach you can stop and take a swim in the amazing pool. All joking aside the setting is quite spectacular and you simply won't find another property in Playa that has such a large pool and garden area that is so close to everything and is situated on such a large section of the beach.

The condo itself has one of the best locations in El Faro and has breathtaking unobstructed views of the ocean. There are direct ocean views from the master bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen and large terrace. The condo is new and is tastefully decorated with a little Caribbean fun but overall it is fairly neutral and has a universal appeal. There is a full size kitchen that is completely equipped with everything that you would expect. Everything is new and high end with nice little touches down to the 300 thread count sheets, however, the condo still maintains a relaxed and comfortable feeling. You'll find all of the amenities to make you feel at home such as air conditioning, wireless internet, flat screen TV's or you can just sit outside on the terrace listening to the waves roll onto the shore and watch the people and boats go by as the quiet breeze whispers to you that this is nothing like home at all...

TIPS: You may want to click onto the 'View Calendar' icon on the right hand side of the page of our listing to check on the availability for the dates you want. You may also click onto the 'View Map' above the calendar to see the exact location of El Faro.

We hope you are able to create some great memories in Playa just as we have and we would be thrilled if you were to choose our condo to use as your home when you visit this special place.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Hi, My name is Shawn and I am originally from California and went to school at the University of California San Diego where I first felt the mysterious draw to the ocean. I now live in Vail Colorado where I was drawn over fifteen years ago by an equal passion to the mountains and skiing. My real estate investments and skiing have kept me in Vail, however, I have never been able to shake the fondness for the ocean. Now with a place in Playa I am fortunate to be able to escape to the ocean once in awhile and live in the mountains that I enjoy the rest of the time.

                  Why the Owner Chose El Faro:
                  I chose Playa Del Carmen as it is easy to get to and yet still allows me to experience something so much different from my life in the mountains of Vail Colorado. A four hour flight from Denver allows me to put on a T-shirt and shorts and breath in the ocean and experience the good natured people and the character of Playa. I can only use the condo myself once in awhile so I wanted to find the property that was the most appealing for a vacation rental. Although the property is new I think it will be the most popular property in all of Playa Del Carmen because it is so unique in that it is a high end property with a central beachfront location in the heart of Playa with a large pool area and right on the ocean. I haven't seen another oceanfront property that offers so many benefits in Playa so it was a natural choice.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  It is nice to be only steps from the famous 5th avenue to walk to all of the great shops and restaurants. We have found it more relaxing to have everything so close so you are not running around the whole time while on vacation. It is also ideal to be able to walk to Walmart to stock up on groceries and bring something back to the condo to BBQ out on the terrace. We recently put a washer and dryer in the condo so this has enabled us to travel with lighter suitcases.
