Mi Casa truly is your Casa! Situated in Residence La Coccinella, Unit 102-A, is located at one of the VERY BEST LOCATIONs in Playa del Carmen!

La Coccinella's one-of-a-kind setting is situated a short 3 minute walk from fine sandy beaches. Less than a 1/4 mile to the popular beach clubs: Mamita's and KOOL. Excellent restaurants, cafes, bistros and high-end-to-traditional shops line 5th Ave. Which is just around the corner from our complexes' secured gateways. One on Calle 28th and the other on Calle 30th. 12 privately owned condos are housed in our boutique complex. Two 3-story buildings face each other, with a lush garden-POOL courtyard in the center. It's an easy walk, to everything!

Everything you need is within walking distance.

My One-bedroom unit offers an extra comfy California King bed and is furnished with all the comforts of home. Second bed is a sturdy sleeper in the Living Room. A Mexican-matrimonial Queen-sized quality fold-out mattress.

The Living Room is air conditioned and so is the bedroom. Both have ceiling fans as well. Relax with secured WiFi service everywhere in my condo. Catch a flick on the flat screen television. There's a collection of movies on DVD, or bring your own and play them on the all-region DVD player.

The Kitchen has every item you might desire for: blending drinks, cooking up an omelette, preparing toast, making a tropical fruit salad or prepping your steaks for the patio barbecue.

A private patio is great for enjoying the beauty and sanctuary of our tropical garden-pool courtyard. Umbrella for shade around a 4-padded chairs, glass-topped round table. Great secured Wifi signal strength. Use the large standing b-bq for lunch or dinner at home. (See listing's photos)

This lovely home-away-from-home, sleeps three adults very comfortably. And is positioned on the garden-pool level of the 12-unit complex. Designed with a blend of European and Mexican styling, our 'original-Playa' complex is a well maintained Playa del Carmen 'classic'. Enjoy the views of our lush garden-pool, looking out of my living room's floor-to-ceiling screens and glass doors. Make yourself at home!

Enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool, some relaxing sun on a Guest's lounge chair. Or go to, Mamita’s Beach Club or other great near-by beach club choices.

About Antoinette Levine


My name is Antoinette Marie Levine. I've been sharing my

Playa del Carmen home with vacationers since 2004. You're invited to call me,

if you'd like to introduce yourselves and your vacation plans 'in-person'.

I truly enjoy being a hospitable host. And so do my friendly Guest's Relations team: Aude Bastiani (Manager), Wendy Ruviera (Assistant) and 'Ale', (Alesandra, our trustworthy house keeper). Welcome to Paradise!!

I'm originally from Pasadena, California. A University of Southern California (USC) School of Journalism & Public Relations graduate. A Media and Film industry professional for over 36 years. I enjoy speaking sufficient Spanish after attending language schools in Mexico and Los Angeles.

When not visiting my Playa home, I love residing in another tourist-destination with incredible artisans and an enriching conscious community:

Looking forward to assisting you with your Mayan Riviera - Playa del Carmen vacation plans!

Best regards=Muchos saludos,

Antoinette Levine

Antoinette Levine purchased this condo in 2003

Why Antoinette Levine chose Playa del Carmen

I bought this property, first of all, because it is Perfectly Located. I was looking for a second home, where scuba diving is abundant. A property with a future value and worth that would continue to increase.

La Coccinella, this complex' name, was so unique, compared to other properties in 2003. There was nothing else like it. And it has retained its beauty and original features as Playa del Carmen grew up around us. La Coccinella stands out as an architectural gem in the midst of a more modernized town.

Its' captivating appeal, attracted tourist into our courtyard so often that we ( the condo owners) invested in artisan crafted metal-work gates. That secure our two private gateway entrances, Calle 28 and Calle 30.

I fell in love with our lush garden/pool courtyard that continues to flourish. As well as the signature yellow coloring of the two three-story/6-unit buildings, which house our 1 and 2 bedroom condos. And I can't wait (but will because it'll be very soon!) for my next visit to stay in my own little unique piece of paradise! ;-D

What makes this condo unique

Location indeed... Our garden courtyard continues to be a flyway stop for a variety of migrating birds. Unique in their coloring:, red and yellow and blue plumage, these rare birds occasionally take temporary refugee in our garden's trees. When lucky enough to have a sighting I again give thanks for being a steward of this sanctuary-like property.

The view out of my living room's floor-to-ceiling double doors, particularly at night, continues to delight me. Our pool lights glow and illuminate the crystal clear pool water. Tinted light blue by the pool walls reflection. Gorgeous. I've often sat outside on my beautifully tiled front steps just to take it all in. Sometimes glancing up at the star lit sky. Or a Full Moon . . .

This home is a magical gift that continues to give me great joy after 12 years of ownership. I feel lucky and very blessed to have been guided to this very special place.

Waking in the morning to birds chirping, calls me to rise and head to the quietness of the sandy beach. Walking is a favorite exercise for me, so heading to the beach or the empty avenues and streets of Playa are always a favorite way to begin each day. Often to return home and jump in the pool for a few laps and water yoga. Then a scrumptious breakfast at my patio umbrella shaded setting.

If it's an excursion day, I feel fortunate to have an off-street parking spot. With a rental car waiting just outside the Calle 28th gate. My usual direction is south, toward cenotes, Akumal, Tulum beaches---and though it's been a while, as far as Majahual. Looking forward to going there again soon!! Or west, to catch the ferry over to Isla Holbox, out of the tiny town of Chiquilá. Playa del Carmen is truly the perfect home-base. ;-D

I've grown accustomed to enjoying my home-away-from-home. With all of its'

truly unique benefits!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Antoinette

Just wanted to thank you for all of your help. We enjoyed Playa very much, & it was nice that our friends were in the suite next to us.

We loved 5th Ave., every meal we had out was wonderful, no complaints about anything. Was nice to be able to walk to everything we needed.

Thank you again, we will recommend your place to friends.

3 week stay wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great 3 week stay here. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils for when we cooked, the beach chairs and pool chairs provided were much appreciated! The stovetop was a bit slow to heat up but we managed. Coming back from a short walk to and from Mamitas Beach and relaxing at the beautiful pool and garden was a daily routine and we will miss this! It is fairly close to grocery stores and a short walk to some quaint beach bars! We like to sleep with the windows open and a breeze at night but found 5th Avenue a bit noisy for this unfortunately, until later at night. Thanks Antoinette and staff, we loved your condo!

Ideal location Oasis

  • 4 of 5

It was apparent from the moment we met Luis who provided our airport transfer to our check in by Maeva that this was going to be a special vacation. La Coccinella is a gem! From the perfect location to the perfect pool, our expectations were exceeded. The almond croissants at Chez Celine (just around the corner) were are daily guilty pleasure. Just around the corner describes everything; 5th Ave., beach plus much more. Thank you, Antoinette.

Cozy condo near the beach, shops, and restaurants

  • 5 of 5

Our entire experience from corresponding with Antoinette, to our arrival at the condo was superb. The property management associates were very friendly and helpful. Additionally, the condo is equipped with all the necessary amenities, and a beautiful pool view from the condo entrance. The entire property is secure and well maintained; during our stay landscapers tended to the grounds and the pool. The restaurants, shops, and beaches are all walking distance from the condo. One essential feature is Wifi, I didn't have any problems with accessibility or connectivity. My husband and I visit the area on an annual basis; this visit was exceptional. Our only regret is we didn't stay longer.

Words could not even begin to describe how perfect staying here was! You are very close to the beach and a few feet away from 5th Ave, but somehow when you are back in the courtyard you feel very secluded from everything. Antoinette, Maeva and Aude were extremely helpful in answering all of our questions being our first trip to the area, as well as a last minute weather check in the day before we left. The pool is refreshing on the warm days and very private. They also have a safe in the house to lock up any personal items as you need to. Maeva also was so helpful in booking any excursions to Chichen Itza, which picked us up right outside our place. They also have a binder with other excursions and things to do if you are unfamiliar with the area. There is even a small car rental place right outside on the street if you decide to drive yourself anywhere as well which is very convenient. Taxis are also just all around also. Playa del Carmen is a beautiful city and we absolutely fell in love with it. Everyone is so wonderful and we are looking forward to coming back! We will be definitely be staying here on our next trip. Thank for making the vacation of our dreams.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Antoinette, We just wanted to let you know that we had a great time at your place in Playa del Carmen. Maeva couldn't have been more helpful...she was just the best. Luis also was more than helpful. We changed our mind on the car rental at the last moment, got in touch with him and he came and picked us right up. You have really great property managers! Thanks again for a lovely time. Rex & Tedra
