About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Large 1 bedroom condo (1150 square foot) located 14 steps from the beach, next to the Mahekal Resort (formerly Shangri-La). If you know Playa del Carmen, you know the new, trendy area is the north end. Located at the end of a cobblestone beach access road at the beach, you are located at the best stretch of beach in the entire Riviera Maya.

The views from the infinity pool are 180 degree ocean views. The view is nothing less than breathtaking. There is a huge ground level pool with day beds, many chaise lounge chairs and umbrellas, and a bar area with tables in the shade. The rooftop is stunning with an infinity pool, many lounge areas with couches and over sized chairs in the shade, with tables, huge solarium seating area, and chaise lounge chairs, all with a view that will knock your socks off. The rooftop is for the use of about 20 condos, but is huge and can easily accommodate many more.

The building has a side beach entrance with outdoor showers and easy access to outdoor restrooms, all within 14 short steps to the beach. Step out to the beach, turn right and 2-3 minute walk down the beach and you are in the middle of happening Mimatas Beach Club with great beach side cafés and all the action that is Mamitas. Turn left and less than a minute walk down the beach and you begin a stretch of beach with very few people. This entire area, left and right, is free of rocks and seaweed…it’s just sugar white sand and the most aqua blue water.

Inside the condo, you’ll have a spacious unit with two living areas, dining area, granite kitchen, separate bedroom, large bath, walk-in closet, and terrace overlooking the palm trees and cabana roofs of Shangri-La. A wall mounted 42' plasma TV with cable and DVD player as well as a CD stereo add to the amenities inside the condo.

This property was built in 2007 and designed for holiday guests, and has a lobby with a reception desk. When you arrive you won't have to search for the property manager's office and then make your way to a residential condo building. Just walk into the beautiful lobby and collect your programmed key-card. This building is fully staffed much like a hotel, with 24 hour reception, security, and maintenance. You will enjoy a resort setting with flowers, beautiful landscaping, and amenities you just won’t find in a residential condo building.

Pueblito Escondido is an exclusive property for the discerning client seeking modern luxurious comforts without the crowds of a hotel. The property has many common areas that are what you would expect to find in a 5 star resort, at a fraction of the price.

This oversized one bedroom unit at 1150 sq ft is larger than most 2 bedroom condos in Playa del Carmen. What you get in most condos is a tiny living area and super small bedrooms. The open floor plan of this condo includes a living area and a separate media area with a wall mounted 42” plasma TV with cable and DVD. The dining room has a large dining table with 4 chairs and the kitchen bar has bar stools for casual meals or that evening margarita. The living and dining room combined create one large expanse of windows and sliding doors that overlook a long private terrace the length of the unit. The well appointed master bedroom has a stately four poster bed, a flatscreen television, a large built-in closet crafted from local hardwoods and a stylish bath. No detail has been overlooked in the design and layout of this contemporary condominium.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our holiday in Playa del Carmen was fantastic. Your apartment was great, perfect for our family. Location was even better than what we expected. It was a quiet part of Playa with some really good restaurants nearby. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They did everything for making our stay comfortable and nice. Especially "Keshier" who really did everything he could for us. We will highly recomend your apartment for our friends and if/when we are going to Mexico next time we will contact you again.

Excellent condo in ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Perry for the use of your condo! We really enjoyed the location. The rooftop pool is AMAZING! The view from the rooftop deck is great. And literally just steps from the sand. The beach was a little rough on most days, but we really enjoyed walking along the beach everyday. The condo had everything we needed, with exception of a toaster! We would recommend adding one. But more importantly, the shower head really needs to be replaced. The spray goes everywhere. I am short, and could not get myself positioned under it. And I was not able to rinse the shampoo out of my hair. Had to get my husband to bring me pitchers of warm water from the kitchen. The maid service twice during the stay was good. The unit was well appointed and had plenty of room for only the 2 of us. Nice and quiet area. Thank you, Thank you!

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay. That rooftop is wonderful, isn't it! And our location can't be beat....maybe you'll join many of our other past guests and become repeat renters of our condo! Thanks for the info on the shower head, we'll get that replaced right away. And we've not had much in the way of requests for a toaster but we will look into adding that to our fully equipped kitchen. Do come back and stay with us again!! Perry

Wonderful vacation property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at a number of VRBO properties and this is at the top of the list! The condo is well laid out and nicely maintained. The deck is great for relaxing and late afternoon cocktails. It overlooks the path to the beach. From the condo one can easily go to the beautiful roof top pool area with a panoramic view of the whole area, and/or to the beach with soft sugary sand and warm Caribbean water. The property was located perfectly just a block from the main shopping/dining area in a upscale, quiet neighborhood. Perry and the staff were very responsive. The restaurants offered very well prepared local meals at reasonable prices. We definitely intend to return to this property in the future. Our only minor comment would be that the shower head might need to be replaced.

Perfect honeymoon spot

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the property, service and amenities at Pueblito Escondido! The property was very clean and the rooftop pool was to die for! This was a peaceful and generally secluded place right off of the beach, perfect for honeymooning! The location was the best part. In walking distance from a ton of great restaurants and steps from the breathtaking beach. We will definitely be staying here again someday!

Spacious place, 14 steps to beach

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from Playa del Carmen last night. We couldn't have been happier with my stay at this property. Right from the beginning, the owner was able to answer my questions promptly. This was my first time using VRBO so I had a lot of questions. He represented his property very accurately. It is a spacious place and we along with our two teenage kids, were very comfortable.

Though we did not use all the amenities offered in the kitchen as we were out on all day tours, but I have never seen this stocked up kitchen with utensils, cutlery, microwave, gas, coffee maker, even a blender!

He was nice enough to even nice enough check us out late as there was no one checking in the same day.

We all loved the roof top pool. There were plenty of vegetarian places to eat nearby too. We could not be more happy with our stay.
