Beautiful condo, exactly as described with lots to offer!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this Penthouse for 5 days and could not have found a better condo or location for that matter. Minutes to the beach and 5th Avenue, both Laura and Viviane were amazing and very knowledgable when it came to Playa del Carmen. I would recommend this condo to anyone who would like to be in walking distance to both the beach and 5th Ave.

Wonderful stay through and through!

This property is spacious and an absolute dream!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this rental. My husband loved the upstairs private patio and outdoor shower. Vivianne and staff were very prompt in responding to text messages about the condo during our stay and assisted us in arranging a van to taxi our crew on an excursion. The condo is a short walk to 5th Avenue and the beach.

Amazing Location in Town & Gorgeous Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks and could not say enough great things about our stay. The condo is beautifully remodeled and is very spacious. We loved having the private 1000 sq ft rooftop deck to spend the evenings outdoor. The bbq was used by my husband allot for dinners al fresco. We walked everywhere - 1 block to the ocean and 1 block to the 5Th Ave. We have 3 favorite restaurants in the neighborhood. We loved the quiet neighborhood and felt very safe in this building. The master bath is brand new and is just beautiful!!!!!!!!!! Thanks again , we will be back to stay in your condo on our next trip to Playa

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This property is not only beautiful, it’s also safe and a great location. Viviane and Taty were so helpful both before and during our stay. The property is modern, clean and well maintained. The 24 hr security at the building made us feel safe. It is only about a block from downtown Playa, which was packed with restaurants and shops - so many things to do. Viviane was also helpful with recommendations for excursions, which are a blast if you want a change of scenery. I highly recommend this property - thank you Laura, Taty and Viviane for a great week!!!

What a fabulous place in Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Laura's condo. Laura was extremely helpful in pre-trip planning and helped us understand Playa del Carmen before we arrived. The condo is great and our favorite part was the roof top living area and the pool. The condo is spacious and comfortable and is two blocks from the beach and two blocks to 5th Ave where there are a lot of fun shops and restaurants.

We felt extremely safe in Playa and walked to grocery stores, beaches, and other parts of town. The locals are friendly and helpful.

We also appreciated Viviane Vemeir, who lives in Playa and is a great concierge. She arranged a great day for us at Xcaret Eco Park and gave us other great ideas of things to do in town. Viviane went out of her way to help us have the best time possible.

We have two boys, 12 and 14, and they had a great time. They enjoyed the town and had plenty to do with town activities and the beaches. We highly recommend spending the day at Xcaret Eco Park. It exceeded our expectations and make sure to stay for the evening show at 7pm. It was amazing.

We would definitely stay in Laura's condo if we return and Laura and Vivian were great to work with. We highly recommend staying here if you are planning a trip to Playa del Carmen.
