Everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were fortunate enough to spend 2 weeks in your charming penthouse earlier this month (Feb) and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay.

From the moment we walked thru your gate we felt welcome as Victor was there with a warm smile and a handshake. We had done an all-inclusive trip to Playa before but decided to try a vacation rental this time. As this was our first time in a rental, we weren't exactly sure what to expect but it was everything we wanted and more. The penthouse is exactly as your description and photos show. The outdoor lounge is really as big as you think it is... great for having a drink after a day in the sun or BBQing some fresh seafood or just relaxing. The king-size be is extremely comfy, the place is clean and the air-conditioning works great.

Even though we shared stairs with Helene and Victor (who are both very gracious hosts) we felt that our privacy was always respected and we often forgot that there were people below us.

The penthouse is in a fabulous location, a short 5 min walk with get you to 5th Ave. or the grocery store and an 8-10 min walk will get you to the beach, Hwy 307 for a colectivo or a great restauraunt for drinks and/or dinner (El Fogon is our recommendation). Never did we not feel safe while walking, and, we walked at all hours of the day and night.

If you're looking for somewhere to relax, enjoy some time with your significant other and be close but not too close to the action all while getting great value, then this is the place for you. If you want to be right in the thick of things and to party like a rockstar, this is not the place for you.

We would love to make a return visit and have been telling anyone who will listen about our great find. We can't thank Helene and Victor enough for our 2 WONDERFUL weeks vacation!

We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Very welcoming, just like home

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and spacious for 2. Quiet living in a gated neighborhood. Close to grocery stores and walking distance to the beach and 5th avenue. Or you can get a taxi right outside the gate. Victor, the owner, was very nice. Always ready to help or answer questions.

And your own private pool.... great for cooling off and relaxing after an outing.

If you're looking for the local experience, we recommend staying here. Loved it!!

Petit nid douillet au milieu de Playa

  • 5 of 5

Appartement bien agencé avec cuisine fonctionnelle, 1 belle grande chambre avec vue sur terrasse/piscine. Un grand espace terrasse est aménagé en 3 parties, coin piscinette et solarium, coin repas, coin salon, avec des pergolas pour protéger de la chaleur. On se sent vraiment chez soi.

Un propriétaire vraiment très sympa et accueillant, qui parle français et qui nous a fait mieux connaître son pays.

Le linge de maison est fourni ainsi que ses serviettes pour aller à la plage. 2 climatiseurs : un dans la cuisine et un dans la chambre.

Je vous conseille ce penthouse qui a plus d'avantages qu'un hôtel pour le même prix : grande surface et grande terrasse, et surtout accueil sans pareil.

J'espère y revenir.

Encore merci à Victor pour tous ses services.

Victor is a great host. 2 chairs, umbrella, cooler ready fot the beach. A short short walk to all.

  • 5 of 5

Nice comfortable bed. AC to cool down your room before bed. Ceiling fans to keep it cool. Beach & bath towels provided. A close walk to many local resturants & markets. A bit further the other direction and you are at the main Boulevard with all of the crazy touristic stuff amd nightlife you may want. The beach is just one block further. Many activities, lots of public beach access. Victor will give you tips - don't worry. Great for a couple. Definitely NOT for the all inclusive type. The neighborhood is charming and away from the hustle. We were not interested in listening to loud Americans - Germans - English etc. If you are after the same, look no further. Enjoy!

This penthouse is exactly as shown on VRBO. It has everything you need, even down to umbrella's, which we actually needed as it rained on and off while we were there. Victor is an amazing host and was very helpful. He even drove us to the bus station when we were headed home. He made sure we had all the necessary information prior to arrival; providing instructions for the taxi driver in Spanish and bus information from Cancun to Playa Del Carmen. The location is great. We walked to 5th Ave or the beach every day - less than 10mins. There is a large grocery store "Sorianas" just around the corner from the penthouse which is handy to pick up any groceries you might need. I would highly recommend this property for it's host Victor, cleanliness, location and safety.
