Property description

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!

Use the privacy and convenience of my lovingly furnished retreat as a cool home-base for excursions and outings. Relax and enjoy refreshments, check your email (secured Wifi) on your own secluded patio. Since the condo is situated around the corner from restaurants, shops, bistros, cafes, beach clubs, and more! 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. Want to enjoy the turquoise waters of ‘El Caribe’/the Caribbean? If you choose a beach club, (approx.$6.usd) they will provide you with a chaise, a shady palapa/umbrella and friendly food and beverage service. Ask my Guest's Relations team for a discount coupon!

Besides Spanish, English and Italian---you will hear languages from around the world. The international mix of locals, business owners and tourists enhances Playa del Carmen's cosmopolitan vibe.

Our expert Guest's Relations team, Aude and Wendy speak English, Spanish and French. Welcome! ¡Bienvenida! Bienvenue!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Hello-Hola-Bonjour-Ciao! 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 town....one with incredible artisans and an enriching conscious community: Ojai, California. Which also offers plenty of opportunities to practice mi espanol! Looking forward to assisting you with your Mayan Riviera - Playa del Carmen vacation plans! Best regards=Muchos saludos, Antoinette Levine (818) 516-5015

Why the Owner Chose Gonzalo Guerrero, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico:
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

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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!!!
