Our very luxurious complex is in Playa del Carmen which is just south of Cancun and it's international airport. Locally called 'Playa', this is a small city along the best beaches in the Caribbean and the world.
Named "VIA 38", it has an especially large common area with semi-Olympic pool, hot tubs, gazebos, gym, our own private parking spot in our underground parking, and manned, 24 hour security. Our unit, A-13, is on the second floor, with it's own private elevator that opens directly into the condo. Large at 1150 square feet (125 square meters), it has two bedrooms, each with large private bath, large closets, and balcony. A third half bath is close to spacious living and dining area. Our condo has marble floors and granite counter tops throughout. Full kitchen with all appliances, including gas stove and oven, large refrigerator, microwave, everything a kitchen needs, private laundry room with full sized washer and dryer - not the little stack units found in most condos - and all else you'd find in a home. Next to kitchen is a granite bar, then the living and dining areas which look out thru a full condo-width glass wall with wide sliding doors and curtains, then past the extra large front balcony down to the pool area below. Lots of light! Room independent conditioning, private wifi, 3 flat screen LCD TVs with cable, beach chairs, extra large beach and pool towels, and more. Our host agency can arrange anything: tours, car rental, diving and snorkeling, chef prepared meals in condo, nurse, more. A one minute walk to the beach. We are in the quiet end of town, on famous 5th Avenue pedestrian mall. Stroll down the pedestrian mall to city center, by shops, restaurants, and coffee houses.
Unlike so many travel destinations, Playa does not feel 'touristy'. It is also a real Mexican town so you can spend time with the friendly local folks, go to their stores, restaurants, etc. A height limit of three stories eliminates towering hotels as in Cancun. Yet Playa is much nicer: very international, it has everything from luxury shopping to local handicrafts, restaurants of every cuisine from fine seafood to French, Italian, Japanese, Argentinian steak houses and more, to sandwiches, vegetarian, inexpensive local fare, and still more. Explore nearby Mayan ruins, (Tulum, Citchen Itza, Xcaret, or, others equally as large, but lesser known - and less crowded), Xian Kaan Biosphere Reserve, Palancar Reef (second largest in world), Cozumel Island. Diving, snorkeling, swimming in warm tropical water, complete relaxation on white sand beaches. Nap in shade by the pool. Have a local chilled cocktail. For a few days, or a month, A-13 in Via 38 is time very well spent.

- Refundable Damage Deposit $500
We have a private management company there in Playa that is always available with a phone call or email. They will not bother or contact you but are there if ever you have questions of any sort, need assistance, have problems or emergencies, etc. It's a very good thing to have in that you are never alone in a new place, always someone there. They can hep with many things including, if you like, with tour arranging, car rental, provide extra maid service, bonded baby sitting, a chef, doctor if need be, transportation, etc. Some of these things are also available on the internet or at the many travel agencies in the area. Our agency is an all-in-one source and therefore more convenient, again, if you like. Also, our condo complex has a staffed office (this is unrelated to our rep agency). They are in a room at pool level and can provide help with problems in the condo or anywhere in the complex. The manager's name is Rocio (row-see-o) and she's a gem.
Manager's cancellation policy:

Dozens of ancient Mayan ruins, some of which are huge but not well known to public, diving and snorkeling (Palancar Reef - second largest in world), cave diving, Xian Kan Biospheere Reserve just south, in town shopping from luxurious to local handicraft, restaurants of virtually any cuisine walking distance, Spanish schools, more...
Year Purchased: 2009
About: Bruce & Sharon live in Denver, Colorado, have travelled extensively and finally found a place they like enough to have second home roots.
Why Zazil-ha, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico:
Bruce first went to Playa in 1980 when Playa was a sleepy fishing town with sand streets, no electricity, no banks, no hotels, only a few palapas for accommodation, a population of a few hundred. At the time I never dreamed that I'd have a condo there or that Playa would become so much bigger and have so much going on/to do.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Not a big city feel in Playa, yet it has just about any activity, accommodation or cuisine you could possibly think of. It is a real Mexican town with all the local activities, stores, food and such then the touristy area nearer to the beach with everything imaginable. It is so nice, has so much to do that there is a sizeable expat community of folks from North America, Europe and elsewhere too, that have chosen Playa as either a part year or all year residence.
