  • Best location ever!

    "This condo has the best location! It is located so close to everything and getting around was a breeze. And the pictures don't do it justice. Loved it! Highly recommend staying here...can't wait to visit again!"

  • Love this place!

    "I have rented this condo several times over the past couple years and I keep coming back. It is a nice modern unit with everything you need. Being up on the 3rd & 4th floors gives it constant access to the tranquil Playa breeze coming off the ocean. If you've spent time in Playa de Carmen, you know how seductive that breeze is - especially in the warmer months. On lower floors, that it gets blocked by the buildings and trees. Having a fresh margarita while watching the sunset from the patio or rooftop deck are a highlight of my day. But, for me, the best thing about this unit is location, location, location. I love being right on 5th Street - but not just anywhere on 5th Street. Being on the north end of 5th is absolutely perfect. You feel completely connected to the sexy / chic energy of Playa without being bothered by it! If you've ever stayed further to the south and laid awake all night listening to the thumping bass of the night clubs and the loud-talking foot traffic, you know what I am saying. Down here at 30th, you are surrounded by fantastic restaurants, bars, coffee houses, shops - and by 12am, there is still great liveliness, but it's beautifully quiet. A+ The owner has been great to work with and there is a local property manager to call if you need something. I was really lucky to stumble on this place when I did and I hope to be able to return for years to come!"

  • We didn't want to go home!

    "My husband and i love the Playa del Carmen area, but we are used to staying at high end all-inclusive resorts. For our recent trip, we decided to change it up a little and rent a condo. We are soooo happy we did. We may never stay at an all-inclusive resort again. The area where the condo is located is close to everything: Shopping, beach, restaurants, ferry to Cozumel, etc. Its in a safe and secure neighborhood. I went out for morning runs everyday i was there and it was so enjoyable. I usually hate exercising on vacation but i couldn't wait to get out each morning! Even though we enjoyed the restaurants (thanks for the recommendations Judy and Heidi) we also had fun walking to Mega to get groceries for breakfast and snacks. Its probably a 10 minute walk. I think it really helps to immerse yourself into area when you shop the local stores. Now for the condo itself... It had 99% of what we needed. The only thing we would change is a tv in the bedroom. Thats it. Everything was clean, well maintained and we loved the decor. It felt so homey. Yes, it was in the midst of the clubs and bars, but it didn't bother us one bit. We didn't need ear plugs (which i brought due to previous reviews), or the noise machine. Working with Judy and Steve, plus Heidi was a breeze! We will definitely be renting Villas Sacbe #5 again!!"

  • A great condo in a great location!

    "Our time in Chris' condo in Paseo del Sol was fabulous! The condo surpassed our expectations and the location was amazing. We enjoyed lots of swimming and relaxing at the complex's beautiful pool and when less quiet time was desired, we quickly hopped across the street to the Reef Club pool (and swim up bar!) for the change of scenery. Having the option of an all-inclusive facility very nearby, eating in any one of the many local restaurants or preparing our own food in the condo suited our wishes perfectly, particularly as we had 4 kids on board. The amenities in the condo and in Paseo were plentiful and in great repair - we wanted for nothing but more time! We truly enjoyed our stay and would be more than happy to return."
