Property description

One short flight of stairs up from the complex's grassy courtyard and cooling pool, you enter our recently remodelled 1200 square foot condo which overlooks both. Opening the door you find a spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen area. Filled with soft filtered light from the floor to ceiling balcony sliding glass doors, the condo has traditional Mexican decorative touches integrated alongside sophisticated contemporary furniture. We have focused on making our condo unique through the use of original art throughout. You will find work by well known contemporary Playa artist Jacobo Roa (see his work at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/jacobo-roa.html), as well as original contemporary international work. Indeed, because my wife is a writer and I am a professional artist, the condo has many unique but sophisticated artistic touches and is beautifully designed and furnished throughout.

The two large bedrooms are located off the living room. They are away from the street side which makes them immune to any disturbance from street noise (which might be a problem in other rental units). Each bedroom has its own attached full bathroom which includes a large walk-in shower. Both bedrooms have windows which allows for air and light. Both of these rooms are furnished with queen size beds with Sealy pillow top mattresses. Several sets of quality linens are provided for each bed, along with extra pillows. One of the bedrooms has a large walk-in closet while the other has a wall of custom made wooden closets. Both have built-in shelves and drawers. That means there is lots of storage for your things while you are reside in the condo. And the walk-in closet provides easy access to your luggage. As you might expect, both bedrooms have original art as well.

The living room and the two bedrooms each have a ceiling fan as well as individually controlled air conditioning units to keep things cool and comfortable when the sun is at its hottest.

Our bright, spacious and exceptionally clean second floor unit, B208, has everything you expect from a quality vacation rental property but at a rate that is nowhere near that of a full service hotel.

We know you are going to enjoy staying here!

Playa description new July 19, 2016

Playa’s main attractions are its beautiful white sand beaches and its exciting Fifth Avenue. Mamitas Beach is the closest beach to our condo - just a few minutes walk away. It is one of the most sophisticated of the beaches in Playa with famous clubs and restaurants right there on the beach (the Kool Club and Mamitas Beach Club). Here in the daytime you will find beach volleyball, parasailing, paddle boarding and jet skiing. Also, numerous dive shop offer scuba lessons that will have you in the deep clear blue water in no time. But most of all, it is the soft sand and the warm clear water that is the main attraction, so you could just lay on the beach and soak up the sun all day long drinking frozen margaritas. Forget work back home and just relaxxxxxx. Ahhhhh.

Our condo complex is located on one of the quieter and safer streets in Playa so you might want to relax around the pool in the courtyard under the palm trees or on our balcony overlooking it. What a great way to spend the whole day and the night.

If shopping is more your style, Fifth Avenue (Avenida Quinta), is just ten minutes walk away from our condo. It offers numerous upscale designer clothing boutiques, jewelry stores and some of the best quality traditional handicrafts available to be found anywhere in the country. New shops focused on international products such as clothing and jewelry seem to open up weekly as do bistros, open air bars and upscale restaurants offering both Mexican and international cuisines.

Within a few blocks of our condo, you will find numerous local restaurants of exceptional quality serving everything from the best cuts of meat (the famous 'El Fogon' which is written about in most guidebooks is just two blocks from us), to the freshest of seafood (the best ceviche in town is also just down the street), to organic smoothies and meals served at Playa's only 'health food' market (again, just two blocks away). As we are also in the area of Playa where European tourists and especially Italian tourists like to stay, you will find all kinds of bistros and fine European restaurants within a short walking distance.

Just one or two blocks away from our condo's location in Playa, are numerous other restaurants

from you will the Mega store, which is similar to Walmart only larger. It hcarries everything you might need: food, liquor, baked goods, fresh produce, meat and seafood as well as beach clothing, sports equipment, a drug store, etc. If Walmart is what you want, it is only four blocks away.

We have it all!!!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: My wife and I are world travellers and have visited many places around the world. Ten years ago we decided to escape the North American winter by visiting Mexico over the December break. We had never been to Mexico before but immediately appreciated the environment, the people and the culture. First we spent time on the west coast (where we found the ocean to be too cold and the beaches too rocky) and then later in Cancun (where we found the weather and beaches to be exactly what we had been looking for from a short tropical vacation in the winter). We took a day trip to Playa del Carmen from there, not knowing what to expect, and immediately fell in love with it. On the bus ride back to Cancun we decided that Playa was where we wanted to buy a home for our retirement. We do not regret it. But as we only come to Playa for a few weeks every year, we decided it was foolish not to let others enjoy this location and so we rent out our condo to others like you who want to experience the sights, events and ambience of Playa del Carmen.

Why the Owner Chose Gonzalo Guerrero, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico:
We purchased this particular property for several reasons. It has both traditional Mexican and Modern Mexican architectural touches. Our purchase also had to do also with location: while we like Playacar, it is too far from the center and requires a car to get around. However, we really like the north end of Avenida Quinta where we are located as it is more international in the flavour and scope of the shops and restaurants. From our location, we can easily get to almost anywhere in Playa by foot. In fact, the Margaritas II condo complex is very popular with vacationers for its ideal location. We bought our particular unit, B208, because unlike some others, it is located very centrally in the complex, not near the entrance or tucked out of the way around a corner. Our condo is ideally located overlooking the pool but away from the street traffic.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location, location, location! Not only is our complex centrally located in Playa but our particular condo is centrally located in the complex.
