Property description

Mi Casa es su Casa! This lovely home-away-from-home receives regular refurbishing and upgrades. My multiple visits each year since 2014, always include personal touches, improvements and regular maintenance.

If your vacation plans include staying near the fine sandy beaches of the Mayan Riviera this is the place for you. Playa del Carmen’s best beaches are just a short walk from my Playa home's secured gates.

This residence is one of twelve units in the Italian designed “La Coccinella” complex. Look out the living room's floor-to-ceiling archway glass doors, and there is our lush garden courtyard. Try to decide if you want a refreshing dip in the pool, laying out in the sun on one of our personal lounge chairs. Or head down to Mamita’s Beach Club or other great near-by beach club choices.

Want to enjoy the near-by turquoise waters of ‘El Caribe’/the Caribbean? If you choose a beach club, (approx.$6.usd) they will provide you with a chaise, a shady palapa/umbrella and prompt, friendly food and beverage service.

La Coccinella is nestled in what locals refer to as Quinta Nueva or ‘new 5th Avenue’. Just off of Avenida 5th at Calle 28th you will be staying in one of the most tastefully built areas of this popular Yucatan destination.

Since the condo is situated around the corner from restaurants, shops, restaurants, cafes, beach clubs, laundry services and mucho more - everything you need is within walking distance!

Use the privacy and convenience of this lovingly furnished retreat as a cool sanctuary between excursions and outings. Relax and enjoy refreshments, check your email (comp Wifi) on your own secluded patio. Or kick back and enjoy a DVD from our film collection before you set off for your next adventure.

This is truly a one-of-a-kind destination. Playa (as referred to by locals) was once a tiny fishing village. Fortunately, it developed into a vacation paradise, shying away from high rise development. It has grown into a beautifully designed ‘walking friendly’ beach town.

Our complex is truly a 'classic' Playa del Carmen beauty. Designed and built by one of Playa's first Italian investors, it exemplifies a blend of Mediterranean and Caribbean styling.

Besides Spanish and English you will hear languages from around the world. The international mix of Playa locals, business owners and tourists enhances its’ uniqueness.

Fly into Cancun International Airport and take a car, bus, taxi or shuttle 45 minutes south to Playa del Carmen.
