About Matt Weatherbee

We moved from Boston to Playa del Carmen, Mexico in 2008 and we haven't looked back since. We came originally on vacation and saw the opportunity to open a successful property management company. Within 3 months of returning from vacation we had quit our jobs, sold everything (except our condo and car) and drove 4,500 miles from Boston to Playa with our 2 miniature schnauzers.

We absolutely love Mexico. The food is fantastic - we eat out often, enjoying a variety of cuisines in one of a kind establishments, most of which are within walking distance of our condo. We have formed a large circle of friends, mostly retired expats, and even host Thanksgiving with usually more than 50 attendees! For Halloween a group of 20+ friends come over, all dressed in costume and we hit 5th Avenue and hand out candy to all the children. It is the most fun day of the entire year!

When we are not working, Matt enjoys working out, reading, playing bridge, cooking gourmet meals and visiting the beach. Allan enjoys watching TV, playing blackjack, eating out, going to the movies and also visiting the beach.

We look forward to meeting you and sharing our home with you.

Peaceful and quite yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We have tried over 8 condo complexes in Playa and this unit makes the top of the list. Very well kept and spotless complex. More resort style layout than the new high rise condos. Two large pools on the ground floor. Lovely grounds/greenery and super friendly door/security folks. Underground parking with an elevator. Steps to 5th Avenue and a few blocks to Mamitas Beach. Itzel our coordinator was kind enough to pick up some simple groceries like coffee, etc before our stay. I highly recommend this unit.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was more than expected! My fiance and I like to escape the busyness of 5th avenue and this was perfect for that! It was close enough to access but far enough away for us to find time for ourselves! This condo provides everything you could ask for in a vacation. The property managers were amazing as well! Very nice people!

We will be visiting again soon!

I was concerned about renting a condo with internet and I didn't know what to expect. Finally, this experience was positive. The condo was as described in internet. No surprise, in a good way. I have spent 5 weeks there to assit to spanish classes and I would recomment it to everybody.

The condo itself is amazing with nice furnitures and a modern decoration. You have everything you can ask for (the kitchen has basic equipment but if you cook simple food, it is OK). The only little thing that was bothering me is the smoke detector, it is very sensitive and it is almost impossible to cook without starting it, even only a toast for breakfast.

The condo is just in front of the pool which is nice because you can just jump in it and go back on your terrace, The water of the pool was not always nice but it was just for a day or two.

Matt and Allan were great. They live on the complex so they are easy to reach if you need anything. But, they also respect your privacy, which I liked. They can help you with anything, even with things not related to the condo (they found a computer technician for me).

Finally the situation of the condo is amazing. Five minute walk from everything (restaurants, 5 th avenue, grocery stores, spanish school, beach). It is very safe ( I a a woman traveliing alone), and the complex staff is friendly.

So, it was a great experience and I would go back for sure if a want to stay again in Playa.
