About the Property
Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
This is a modern condo in a building with 20 units. This unit is on the ground floor and is directly on the beach. No stairs, no elevators, no going around a pool, no going through a gate, but DIRECTLY on the ocean. You can stand up from the sofa and take 15 steps and be in the sand. Take another 25 steps and you are in the ocean. This is a very rare opportunity to stay in a beach condo that is really on the beach. Lounging in a beach chair with music playing not from your headset, but actually from the Bose speakers in the unit. Order beach service from the waiters at the neighboring Coco Maya Restaurant/Club. Perhaps the kids are napping? You are still lounging in the sun because you are still within hearing distance of the bedrooms. Want a cold drink? You don't have to pack a cooler to take with you, just step to your refrigerator for a cold one. Whether it is for private bathroom facilities or the convenience of not having to pack a beach bag, staying this close to the ocean is a luxury not afforded by any other units in Playa.
But what about the other great things Playa del Carmen offers? The location of this condo is ideal. You are just 2 blocks off the famous Avenida Quinta and you are at the center of the action. The hottest beach nightlife in town is 2 doors away at the Blue Parrot. Starbucks coffee is just a few minutes walk (We prefer breakfast at '100% Natural' on Avenida Quinta... fresh fruit milkshakes, yogurt and granola, or a full hot breakfast is always available).
This unit is owned by a seasoned professional in the vacation rental business, so you can rest assured (literally) that your comforts and conveniences are provided for. The beds have pillow top mattresses with thick mattress pads, 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, and light down comforters. Bath amenities are of top spa-quality, and the kitchen is equipped for even a top chef.
Note - if this unit is not available, there are other units in this building that are available for rent. Contact us and we will help you with them.
EASTER WEEK, BPM FESTIVAL (first 10 days of January), and NEW YEAR's are particularly festive in Playa and specifically in the district around this condo. If you are not coming for the party during these times, it might be best to look for other dates or for some place farther out of the center of town.

About the owner: Vacation Rentals are my business, literally. I manage over 65 luxury log homes in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina (see Watershed Cabins in Bryson City NC). The condo in Playa is my personal vacation home, but I rent it out when I'm not there. So, I did things here that most would not expect for 'just a rental': The linens and bedding are really comfortable, the decor is a touch above rental calibre, and some features (like Bose speakers and an well equipped kitchen, for instance) go way above and beyond basic rental comfort.
Why the Owner Chose Gonzalo Guerrero, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico:
I had visited Playa several times before buying a condo there and fell in love with the ease of the destination and the way that this destination is a 'best all around' place. I have been fortunate enough to travel many places in the world, and Playa is the one place that has all the things I look for in a vacation destination: ease of travel there, great food, great shopping, white-sand beaches, nightlife, & diversity of people. So when on one of my trips, I happened to stumble on a condo model that was directly on the beach, I immediately knew it was something I wanted.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You really can't speak enough of the fact that this condo is directly on the beach. You feel so integrated with the beach and ocean while there. Even staying in a beachfront resort, you sometimes feel like you have to 'pack' or 'get ready' to head out to the beach; but with this condo, I go in and out my door, listen to my music, make my own drinks, etc and I do it all from the beach (even surf the internet, as the WIFI goes a good bit outside the unit). I love to set my laptop up with my iTunes and connect to the stereo. Then I turn on the outside speakers and can play DJ right from the hammock using an app call 'Remote' -- it's awesome.
