Margaritas II condo description

Margaritas II is a perfect place either for couples, families or small groups - really anyone who wants to indulge in the Mexican way of life and at the same time the sophisticated international ambiance of Playa del Carmen. Playa is great for anyone who wants great dining experiences, great upscale shopping, great nightlife and long, lazy days spent swimming in warm ocean waters - but does not want the expense of full hotel service. If you are also interested in exploring nearby ancient ruins, scuba-diving or snorkeling, or sampling the non-stop excitement of Cancun (only one hour away), we know you will enjoy staying here!

Margaritas II is a beautiful condo development centrally located 4 blocks west of Playa del Carmen’s famous 5th Avenue. And it is only one more block to its world famous white sand beaches. Almost everywhere you might like to go in Playa is within easy walking distance of our condo. Built in 2007, each unit in our complex is - like ours - privately owned and we have decided to rent our unit out on both the short and long terms (by the week or month) as we come here only a few weeks a year. Our bright spacious second floor unit, B208, has all the quality amenities you would expect and is tastefully furnished with urban/contemporary Italian furniture. It is perfectly located within the complex itself as it directly overlooks the large pool. Artist-owned, our condo has original contemporary art throughout, both by international and Mexican artists.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Just one or two blocks away from our condo's location in Playa, you will the Mega store, which is similar to Walmart only larger. Their in-store supermarket is phenomenal with perhaps the largest fresh meat and seafood counter we have ever seen anywhere. If Walmart is what you want, it is only four blocks away.

                          Within a few blocks of our condo, you will find numerous local restaurants of exceptional quality serving everything from the best cuts of meat to the freshest of seafood to organic smoothies. As we are also in the area of Playa frequented by Italians and other European tourists, you will find fine Italian dining just down the street and numerous coffee houses as well.

                          Playa's two main attractions are its beaches and Fifth Avenue. Mamitas Beach is the closest to us - jiust ten minutes walk. It is the 'grooviest' beach and in fact you might run onto one of the free jazz festivals or trance festivals held occasionally right on the beach while you are there. For sure you will find beach volleyball, parasailing, jet ski and so on as well as numerous restaurants right on the beach.

                          If shopping is more your style, Fifth Avenue (Avenida Quinta) in Playa del Carmen offers some of Mexico's best traditional handicrafts alongside numerous upscale clothing, jewelry and high end craft boutiques. You can even rent a car to go to Cancun where you will find several American-style shopping plazas with tenants such as Cartier and Tiffany.

                          Playa del Carmen and region offers many activities. Take a day-trip to the fantastic ancient Mayan ruin site in nearby Tulum where you can swim in the ocean with towering cliffs above you - cliffs topped by Mayan temples. Or take a day tour to one of the most important World Heritage Sites on the planet at Chichen Itza, a perfectly preserved and massive Mayan temple site with numerous structures. Very mesmerizing.

                          All in all, you will find almost everything you need or want out of your vacation within a close range.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: My wife and I are world travellers (we just spent January to April, 2013 in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam). Ten years ago we started to come to Mexico from Canada for December vacation, first to the west coast (where we found the ocean to be too cold and the beaches too rocky) and then to Cancun (where we found the weather and beaches to be exactly what we had been looking for from a tropical winter vacation). We took a day trip to Playa del Carmen one day and on the bus ride back to Cancun decided that Playa was where we wanted to buy our second home - we fell in love with the ambience and intimacy of this small city.

                          Why the Owner Chose Margaritas II:
                          Our condo complex has both traditional Mexican and Modern Mexican architectural touches. We bought it because it was neither too impersonally 'modern' nor over done in 'Mexican' style. Our purchase had to do also with location: while we like Playacar, it is too far from the center and requires a car to get around; while we like the 'American' end of town, we find there are too many familiar franchise chain restaurants. However, we really like the part of town where we are located as it is both a bit more accessible by foot, more quiet, and more international in the flavour and scope of the shops and restaurants. We bought our particular unit because it is located very centrally in the complex, not near the entrance or out of the way in a corner. it is ideally located. In fact, the Margaritas condo complex is very popular with vacationers for its ideal location: it is central but no more than a short walk to 5th Avenue with its upscale boutique shopping, the beach, Walmart, an organic food market, a world-class gym, several yoga studios, cafes and bistros, local and upscale Mexican and Italian restaurants. It is also no more than a short taxi ride (very inexpensive) to any of the large malls at the edge of town.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          We looked long and hard at many condos before deciding on buying in the Margaritas II complex four years ago. Since then we have been renting it to tourists like us who know that Playa is a great place to spend some deeply relaxing time. We have renovated our condo several times to accommodate not only our own taste but the needs of our renters. We know you will enjoy all the quality amenities we have there from the espresso coffee pot to the luxury linens. Our condo is located in close proximity to everything that Playa del Carmen has to offer: we enjoy going to the beach, golfing, dining out at fine restaurants, exploring the small towns in the countryside. We also enjoy the mix of cultures that reside side-by-side and make-up this small, intimate upscale city: traditional Mexican ambience + contemporary European sophistication + American energy and excitement.
