"Arena Blanca is one of the best kept secrets in Playa del Carmen. It is centrally located less than minutes from 5th Avenue, but in a fairly quiet side of town. The condo is beautifully decorated with native art and accents and is extremely private and comfortable and within walking distance of everything. The pool and the surrounding grounds are gorgeous and impeccably maintained. The staff are warm and accommodating. This is an extremely quiet complex with only eleven units total. The guests at this complex consisted of several families with children and alot of adult couples. Dealing with Shari and Lisa throughout the entire process was a delight. They were great at providing whatever information we needed and at addressing any personal issues we had immediately. They supplied us with a handy guide to restaurants and local places to see and things to do which proved to be most helpful. We wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else but Arena Blanca on our next trip to Playa del Carmen. Thank you Shari and Lisa for sharing this magical place with us. We loved it!"

Tastefully decorated 2 Bedroom Condo in a great location-Paseo del Sol in Playacar, MX
"We rented this 2 bedroom condo from November 7 to 25,2014 in the Paseo del Sol complex which houses about 4 three story buildings containing roughly 65 owner occupied and rental condo units. Paseo del Sol complex is located in Playacar, a gated community, containing residences and several all-inclusive hotel resorts. The area is both safe and secure. Paseo del Sol has 24 hour security. It is about a 15 minute walk (7 to 9 peso taxi ride) to 5th Avenue and surrounding area where the shopping district is located along with a number of great restaurants.
This 2 bedroom spacious condo unit was tastefully decorated/appointed containing excellent quality furniture and furnishings. It was a bright and light corner unit on the main/ground level of the complex, called Reef 106. The kitchen was fully equipped and the unit contained a washer/dryer. Bottled drinking water containers are delivered to the condo as required/requested,with maid/cleaning service provided when requested, with a meaningful tip for the cleaning lady.
We went to several excellent restaurants, just off 5th Avenue, including Oh Lala, Imprevist, Como Como and the Plank. We also ordered on-line having groceries brought to the condo for a nominal price, as well we ordered pizza from a restaurant called Amore and very good Thai food from a takeout restaurant owned by Oh Lala which was delivered to our condo.
We enjoyed our stay in the condo. A great location. The office and cleaning staff was very good. We would recommend."

"Wow did we ever hit a home run with Casa Paraiso!!!
My wife, two grown kids and I, really felt special staying here.
The photo's are representative of the condo but don't really do it justice. It's a really wonderful place with a great layout. The balcony off the living room and master bedroom added a cool dimension. The roof top, oh the roof top...we spent so much time up there. We had our morning latte's there (we brought our own portable unit, but Starbuck's is 50 steps away). We had our afternoon cocktails there. We had our nightcap there. We thought the spiral staircase in the photo was sketchy, but it was fine and had no problem even when carrying dos cervezas.
The location was perfect. Right off 5th to go for a stroll and people watch. But also far enough off 5th that it was quite inside the condo. We could hear music from the bar next door when we were on the roof top but it was to our liking.
Coincidently, my daughter's friend and family were in Playa staying at a hotel, They came over and were blown away. They'll probably stay here next time they are in Playa.
The four of us did our PADI Open Water Diver certification with Scuba Playa. They are fantastic and so was our instructor Ace. We did the theory portion online, because really, who wants to be inside when in PLaya. We then did a dive with Bull Sharks and a day in Cozumel. Awesome!!!
We took Kris's suggestion and hired Marinoh as driver to/from the airport. He gave us a quick tour of places around the condo and suggested a few authentic Mexican restaurants. Los Aqua Chilies just off of 5th had really fresh seafood. Don Sirloin was a real hit too. We found restaurants off of 5th we typically 1/2 the price and same or better quality.
We rented a car for the day and went to Coba, Grand Cenote and Akumal to snorkel with the turtles. Long day but we'd do it again.
We would definitely come back here.
Rick, Sharon, Nolan & Margot"

Best Ever Family Vacation ! We loved Xaman Ha and Playa Del Carmen!
"We want to thank Rentals Your Way for making our vacation memorable and stress free. Everything was perfect!
My two daughters (age 17 and 11) and I had an excellent time in our condo in Xaman Ha!
It was the best condo and it was better than the pictures.
We highly recommend renting with Rentals Your Way and staying at Xaman Ha Condos.
Working with Rentals Your Way was a pleasure. They answered my emails very quickly. And they have a representative on site if you have any problems. We look forward to renting with them again.
The condo has the following--
1) It was very clean. Maid service every other day, which is needed because you are using the towels for the pool, beach and bathing.
2) Great location. It is 10 minute walk at most to the Quinta Avenida and colectivos. Five minute walk to the Ferry to Cozumel. If you are a runner it is less than a five minute run to Playacar, which is a neighborhood and location for fancy hotels. The Avario was a 10 minute walk.
3) The condo complex consists of a beach and pool. Kids loved the pool. I loved the beach. Everyone was happy.
4) The condo had a walk-in kitchen with all the appliances, pots, dishes etc. Walmart is a about a 15 minute walk. Taxis plentiful if you don't want to walk.
5) It is not necessary to rent a car. We took colectivos to Tulum, Cenote Azul and Akumal. Very inexpensive and easy to do. Actually everything in Playa del Carmen is easy to figure out. We felt comfortable immediately.
6) Playa del Carmen is a very safe place to be.
5) Paper products ie toilet paper and paper towels were provided.
6) We loved the animal sculptures made from the towels."
