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 renovated the condo several times in the past seven years and have created a calm sophisticated environment. Spacious and airy, it is beautifully furnished and decorated in both Mexican and International styles. We have avoided the usual basic tourist decor: it is- to quote others in the complex - quite ‘beautiful.’

As I am an artist, we have focused our attention instead not only on the ambiance we wanted to create but especially on integrating artwork into the space. You will find traditional Mexican folk art and pottery pieces as well as drawings and etchings by internationally known artists. Because his work is smart, chic and appealing, we have started to collect drawings by local artist Roa, whose work is handled by galleries here and in other locations in Mexico, in New York and in London. (see his work at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/jacobo-roa.html)

The two large bedrooms are located off the living room. They are away from either of the complex's street sides 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 with which includes a large walk-in shower. Both of these rooms are furnished with queen size beds with Sealy pillow top mattresses.

We are sure a relaxing week or two spent in our condo will take you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday work life, so you can just get on enjoying yourself and not worry about much of anything at all.

The living room and each of the two bedrooms 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 will find Playa to be as fantastic as we do - and are very sure your time spent at our condo will help ensure you do so.

Car: Not Necessary

We first arrived on the bus from Cancun, not knowing what to expect but having heard a lot of positive things about Playa del Carmen from word of mouth. Within minutes of walking down Avenida Quinta (Fifth Avenue), the main tourist pedestrian street, my wife and I turned to each other and said; “This is it”

Our feelings about Playa back then ten years ago have not diminished at all. On the contrary they have been strengthened. From a lazy little fishing village, it has grown into a sophisticated tourist mecca with luxury boutiques, fabulous restaurants, great beach clubs and endless activities to enjoy. Days spent suntanning on the white sand beaches or engaged water sports are contrasted by nights spent dining at or perambulating along Agenda Quinta which now is the exciting and even glittering focus of all things Playa.

A few blocks west of Quinta is our condo. Situated in an ultra-safe location in the tourist zone, we purchased it seven years ago after looking at many others around town. We liked its more quiet location slightly off the main tourist streets, the ambiance of the complex, the pool and grounds, the super cleanliness of everything, the spacious condo layout itself, the nearby shopping and dining…I could go on.

Year Purchased: 2009

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. 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. There are several Italian dining establishments just down the street and numerous coffee houses as well. Just one or two blocks away from our condo's location in Playa, you will the Mega hypermarket, which is similar to Walmart only larger. Their in-store supermarket is phenomenal as well as their selection of clothing, electronics, houseware, etc.. If Walmart is more what you want, it is only four blocks away. Playa's two main attractions are its beaches and 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 where you will find clubs and restaurants right on the beach each offering beach loungers rentable by the day or hour.
