About laura rubio
This is a family business so we really take care of details. We love Mexico and all nature in general so we have an ongoing green program certified by MARTI (Mesoamerican Reef Tourism Initiative) a partner of Conservation International, WWF and Coral Reef. We have always loved travelling but not so much big hotels that keep you apart from the real experience of the country you are visiting. Then we discovered the world of vacation rentals and we were thrilled! We certainly enjoy great spaces, a lot of freedom, our own full kitchen. Having a kitchen is the perfect reason to explore the place looking for local foods, beer or wine, getting to know the local vendors and produce... it is great fun! We enjoyed condos so much that we decided to build our own and offer them to families like ourselves, and travelers with a more independent and adventurous taste. Big hotels and all inclusive are definitely cheap but in a vacation rentals we felt free!! We could eat out and splurge or prepare a picnic basket and have lunch in a beautiful spot, no hurries, no more rice please! It has been a wonderful way of really knowing the places we have visited, exploring the less touristy places, meeting wonderful persons we would have never found in a resort. We have travelled to several countries in this way and it has been a fantastic experience. We hope to offer the same for you, enjoy Playa, really get to know this wonderful part of Mexico, the place and the people, you’ll love it!
laura rubio purchased this Condo in 2007
Why laura rubio chose Gonzalo Guerrero
Playa del Carmen is just 60 mn south of Cancun which is a very well know beach destination, with many flights available from major US and overseas companies. Though near Cancun, Playa still has the flavor and relaxed atmosphere of a small town. For some years now it has been chosen a home by people from many parts of the world with a taste for nature, beauty and creativity. Playa has become a little 'melting pot' with its own 'little Italy', many folks from France, Argentina, Germany, Holland and much more, which makes it possible to enjoy and authentic 'éclair au chocolat' or state of the art cappuccino. It is such a charming location with wonderful restaurants, shopping and vibrant nightlife and, of course, absolutely beautiful beach. What makes this apartment very special and charming is that we built it and decorated it ourselves, not professionally as many others around, so you´ll have this feeling of authenticity and local flavor that we believe is part of the travelling experience.
What makes this Condo unique
Everything is a few blocks away, from the best shops and restaurants to the best bars, nightclubs and beach clubs. We are surrounded by dive shops, there are a lot of cenotes close by (20/30 min drive) and beautiful catamarans in rental to spend the day or watch the sunset. You can get to the famous tourist parks like Xcaret, Xel Ha and Xplor with a 15 min drive . Go local ! ask us for the best tips to get to know the real Playa, we will be glad to help you!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Extremely clean and close to everything! I would stay here again!
This property is exactly what I expected. The photos are a great representation of the property. We stayed here for 3 months and did not see the property in advance so that was a wonderful surprise! It is walking distance to everything!! Everyone here is friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you for the accommodations and the warm welcome to Mexico! We are counting days until we return.
Awesome, near of everywhere, 1/2 block to the beach 1 block of 5th ave. Excellent location
It is very good townhouse, very functional and on the middle of everywhere, do you want to go from airport by bus?, the terminal is less than 1/2 mile, do you want to go to Cozumel tour? it is same, do you want to to the beach? is less than a block, do you want to go where the fun is? It is one block away. Very good location.
Only one comment, the electric range is two burners and it is small, but good enough for brekfast and dinner, also on the roof you will find a small pool good for son shower.
In summary I would highly recommend this for your next trip to Playa del Carmen at Riviera Maya
Thanks for everything Laura, Mary and Jessica

An oasis in the middle of everything Playa del Carmen
Our stay was wonderful. Laura's daughter Maria was our point of contact, and she was fast to respond and very helpful. We arrived early with no notice (our mistake) and the team at the hotel let us store our bags and change clothes while so we could enjoy the pool while they finished the room. The room itself was beautiful, modern, clean, and had a very well set up kitchen. Having an oxxo (convenience store) in the building mad everything that much easier. We loved the hot tub, and the semi enclosed patio. We were traveling with our 7 yr old son and 25 yr old nephew, so having the beach a few steps away and the clubs near by was perfect. At night there was minimal noise from the clubs, as parents, we were not bothered. The beach club across the street was great, outside bar, restaurant, with swings and lounge chairs. Staff there was accommodating and respectful. We will be back as soon as we can. Hate leaving! Thanks Maria!
Thank you so much for taking your time to review your stay Katie ! we appreciate it a lot !
It was our absolute pleasure hosting you and your family and we really hope to host you again soon, you will always be welcomed at our place :)
Great local for party central and dancing
Love the night life and late night noise. Place is perfect. Great porch tub and view from roof top pool. Wi-Fi didn't work, and 1 a.c. control broken, otherwise 5 stars.
Generally nice, but hot water stopped working
The unit was nice and clean. The roof top pool was nice and private. The hot water stopped working half way through our trip, so we couldn't use the hot tub for that portion of the trip. the hot tub was the primary attraction of the unit, so that was disappointing. The location was very convenient to the shopping and entertainment district and the beach.
Thanks Kevin for your review! It was a pleasure hosting you. We are glad that you liked our apartment and our location. We had an issue with our hot water system and we had to perform an emergency replacement, it was difficult but now is all working perfectly so everyone may enjoy the beautiful private terrace with hot tub.
We stayed with our family (they took a two bedroom and we stayed in this one bedroom) and we loved it! Great staff, very clean, very good location really close to the beach and quinta. The apartment is beautiful, comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed the hot tub and the large terrace. Playa is amazing we will be back!
Due to our location, there might me music heard some nights from the nightlife, specially on holidays.
