Beautifully decorated by an Interior Decorator, our top floor Penthouse apartment/condo is situated in one of the best locations in Playa del Carmen at the junction of 5th Avenue and 34th a short walk to the famous Mamitas/Kool beaches. Enter through our secure gated entrance set back from the main road through a leafy lane or drive directly into our secure gated car park using a remote control and take the elevator to the top floor. Staff are on duty during the daytime for your convenience and at night we have a Security Guard based in the lobby.
The apartment has a modern fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops/work surfaces, breakfast bar and marble floors with high stools for informal dining. There is a large fridge/freezer, microwave, stove, dishwasher and is well stocked with all utensils for home cooking/dining.
There are two equally large bedrooms, with super-king size beds making this apartment suitable for couples sharing or families. There is plenty of closet space with a safe in the master bedroom closet where you can store your valuables when you are out and about. Both bedrooms have en-suite marble shower rooms with walk-in showers and full glass doors, WC and washbasin. Each bedroom has its own satellite TV with programs in English and Spanish and a DVD player.
The modern living area has two reclining leather sofas where you can simply relax and enjoy the ocean view and for your convenience we have recently installed a 42' flat screen TV again with satellite TV and DVD player.
If you need to keep in touch with work or family, Internet/WiFi is provided as well as a Vonage telephone line with Free land-line calls to over 60 Countries and to cell phones (mobiles) in the US and Canada. It is a US telephone number and you can receive calls which will be charged to the caller at their normal US rate if they call you.
The dining area complemented by a fine imported wooden table and chairs leads through to the comfortable, modern sitting room. From here you have views through the large patio doors across the terrace and pool, out to the Caribbean Sea.
Outside there is a table, chairs and parasol for al fresco dining alongside the jacuzzi plunge pool which is the perfect place to watch the amazing birdlife returning to the jungle canopy below at sunset, most evenings to be joined by the Coati family who come out to feed at this time.
If you take the stairs up to our spacious sunroof, you will be rewarded with even more magnificent views. Relax on the double sunbed to top up the tan, or enjoy the last few rays as the sun sets looking out towards Cozumel and the amazing cruise ships passing through the straits.
All the best restaurants in town are within walking distance, located along and around the pedestrianised 5th Avenue, therefore a car is not necessary. If you do plan on hiring a car, our personal car space in the ground floor secure garage is at your disposal. The garage has direct access into the hallway and the elevator.
All the doors are extra wide to allow wheelchair access, even the bedroom doors, and apart from the stairway leading to the sun roof everything is on one level. Access from the street is only a step of approximately 4 inches and from the car park it is also on the same level as the elevator, making our apartment particularly friendly for people with reduced mobility.
Bottled water and a mid week cleaning service is provided.

About the owner: We are a married couple who have been visiting the Yucutan for many years now. Our daughter and her family live in the area but we like to travel around during our frequent visits and decided that Playa del Carmen is by far the best place to have a base. We like fine dining and think Playa is the best town in the area for eating out. There are excellent top class restaurants particularly around 5th Avenue, many inspired by the Italians who live at our end of town. We are very interested in the history and the ecology of the area and have visited most of the Yucatan Peninsular but decided Playa was the place to return to after our travels. We like the beautiful beaches, visiting the wonderful eco and wildlife parks such as Xcaret or Sian Ka'an or taking trips to the various Mayan Ruins so we are very happy to own a comfortable place of our own in Playa.
Why the Owner Chose Gonzalo Guerrero, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico:
Unlike Cancun, Playa has retained the relaxed atmosphere of a seaside holiday town while at the same time offering a fun and buzzy nightlife, so this appealed to us when choosing another home from home. After visiting many units in the area, we decided that our apartment was the best by far that we had seen. Located on 5th Avenue it offers luxury accommodation with good restaurants and shops close by. The building is relatively small unlike many blocks which look more like large hotels than homes and each unit is quite private. We are just minutes from Mamitas and Kool beaches and we preferred to be on 5th rather than right on the beach slightly set back from the noise but at the same time able to enjoy magnificent views across the ocean. We don't need to hire a car as public transport from Playa is first class. You can visit almost all of the area in air-conditioned buses. Likewise getting to and from the airport. Taxis are plentiful and cheap so you can get around town easily and not worry about where and for how long to park.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We wanted a Penthouse, ie top floor with no-one walking around above us. The bonus was the finishes came up to standard, with a good sized kitchen and living space, but also we liked the idea of two almost identical bedrooms, so if we came with friends/family neither has to have the less desirable room. We could see at once that the interior had been designed by someone with taste making it a comfortable place to come home to. It is wonderful to be able to walk to the best restaurants, not worry about drinking and driving. Shopping within a short taxi ride is also important. Walmart close by and my favourite supermarket Mega is within walking distance or only a few pesos taxi ride away. The sunroof with magnificent ocean views is a great place to relax and top up the tan followed by a dip in our own private splash pool, The perfect place to enjoy a sundowner looking out across the Caribbean Sea to Cozumel watching the ships go by.
