Property description

Our Condo Buena Vida at Las Olas is set amidst Playa del Carmen’s famous beach and vibrant international sidewalk scene. A mere half block from Las Olas, Playa’s Fifth Avenue pedestrian promenade beckons with relaxed cafes and gourmet restaurants, exclusive lounges, and al fresco bars, intriguing boutiques and local purveyors of all types and variety. It is also only 100 meters from the Caribbean beach. Relax at Mamitas Beach Club or Kool's Club - the most popular and hip beachs in Playa del Carmen. Swim in the beautiful warm Caribbean water and enjoy the view. If a swimming pool is more to your liking, rent a lounge and umbrella for the day and you can swim in Mamitas new swimming pools. Kool's Beach Club also has a pool. When you tire of the sun, your Las Olas home is only a few minutes away.

At 1150 square feet of living space with unusually high 12 foot ceilings our condo is spacious and a rare find in Playa del Carmen. Tile floors extend onto the private outdoor terrace where one can dine and relax in the fresh breeze from the ocean. It is fully furnished with two spacious air-conditioned bedrooms each with Queen Beds, full bathrooms and walk-in tiled showers. A fully equipped chef's kitchen with granite counter tops, separate laundry room, original paintings and many other fine details are all there to provide quality and international style. Even the terrace is furnished for outdoor comfort and dining. Condo Buena Vida is safe and secure on the second floor of Las Olas with a full time security guard and two property managers to look after all your needs.

Blessed with perennially sunny skies and a mild climate, Playa prides itself on a relaxing open-air, pedestrian lifestyle. It’s a place to recharge your batteries, find your adventurous side or spend an afternoon happily exploring the finer points of doing absolutely nothing at all. Playa provides a vibrant variety of natural and multicultural experiences any time of year. When the sun rises over the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean it all comes to life. First-rate golf, esteemed spas, fine outdoors dining and an internationally acclaimed nightlife – the options of experiencing Playa are truly limitless.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: My wife Lori and I have searched for the perfect place to own in the sun and near the water. We have traveled to Panama, Belize and Ecuador and finally chose this spot on the Mayan Riviera. What attracted us is the very friendly people, inexpensive living, amazing weather and safe neighborhood. The perfect place to escape the Canadian winter.

Why the Owner Chose Las Olas:
Las Olas means 'the waves' in Spanish and Condo #207 named Buena Vida means 'The Good Life'! This condominium building is appropriately named, since it is literally steps from the turquoise Caribbean Sea and glorious white sand beaches for which Playa del Carmen is justly famous. Solidly built and with charming exterior design features like the winding tree pillars, these condos combine the best of Mexican design, like colorful tile, with clean, contemporary furnishings to create a harmonious, upscale experience.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location, Location, Location!! Not only is our condo at Las Olas conveniently located close to the beach, it is also only a few steps from the famous Fifth Avenue. Known by locals as La Quinta Avenida, it's where you can enjoy strolling along the cobblestone pedestrian walkway and find great shopping and an array of fine restaurants and fun bars. It is also only a 10 minute walk to 2 huge Superstores (Mega and Wal-Mart) where you can purchase a huge variety of food and beverages. Just around the corner there is a quaint wine store and restaurant which offers live entertainment and happy hours most nights. For all the day to day and evening activities, a car is not necessary.
