About Bjoern Koch

I first visited the Mayan Riviera in 1994 and fell in love with the amazing region. In 2005 I made the move to Playa Del Carmen and have been living and working in paradise ever since. One of the advantages of me being here full time has allowed me to go the extra mile for my guest, from restaurant recommendation, to my local favorite spots to go and hang out. My guest over the past few years have loved that we been able to assist them with activities, transportation and even pre arrival shopping. Since I am normally only a few minutes aways it also allows us to interact with our renters on a regular basis.

Bjoern Koch purchased this condo in 2008

Why Bjoern Koch chose Gonzalo Guerrero

Location, Location, Location. One of the three most important things in real estate apply for this property. located in the heart of playa del carmen nestled between famous 5th Ave and the beach this location offers you all, ocean views, short walk to the beach or and no car needed. I have been a realtor and have my own real estate company, when I purchased the property I looked at what would make this property attractive over others and there are so many benefits to list but the great use of space, private setting, amazing views and comfort are just some of them.

What makes this condo unique

Why Mayan Villas and why unit 416??

I enjoy watching the early morning sunrises form the private terrace of this unit while just sipping on a nice Expresso or While soaking in the Private Hot Tub with amazing views to the Caribbean Sea. At night time there is nothing better than grilling some fresh local seafood on your own terrace while sipping on a margarita or some ice cold Corona. As guest of this unit you also have free access to the Gym (50 meters away) , the Indigo Beach Club and unlimited internet inside your property no need to run and search for a hot spot or worry about paying for internet charges.

Guestbook comments from the owner

While we had stayed at an all inclusive several years ago, we wanted to try something different this time. Maya Villa is a great, small hotel a block from the beach. Any reluctance I may have had to walking through back streets in Mexico was quickly dispelled as we went back and forth to the Indigo Beach Club and 5th Avenue many times.

We had a top floor penthouse unit, and the views & furnishings were very nice. Best to get one with the more unobstructed views as those are spectacular. The pool and hot tub are nice and relaxing, and it was fun to swim under the cascading water near the back. The courtyard is really beautiful, and the room worked out great for our family of 5. There was enough room to add a hide-a-bed for our 3rd. Very nice and clean bathroom and showers, and the kitchen is well set up and very convenient for cooking meals or just snacking & drinking.

We booked when they were including breakfast (not sure if they always do), and both locations were very good. The restaurant downstairs was very nice and quiet with great food, and the beach club was a great outdoor dining option.

The staff at the main office down the street and the concierge office downstairs were very helpful. Whether it was getting towels or calling for help in the room (like lighting the barbecue) the office staff was always courteous and prompt. The guys in the concierge office were great at suggesting places to go and how best to get there.

There are lot's of dining and shopping options within a few blocks, and the hotel is just a block from 5th Avenue where there is a lot happening all the time. The most fun is down at the south end of 5th when we saw a small acrobat group on the very tall pole. The Mega store is about 5 blocks away and is a great big grocery store. Don't expect it to be like Safeway though.

I think we would definitely consider staying there again.

Amazing Ocean View Penthouse in Mayan Villas With Private Hot Tub, Palapa & More
average rating of 5.0 based on 4 reviews

Private, spacious, great location and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Maya Villas. It is located right next to 5th avenue and has easy access to the beach and great restaurants. Its a very cute complex with only a little more than a dozen condos. The gecko designed pool and waterfalls makes you relaxed as soon as you walk through the gate.

This condo has a perfect amount of space with great amenities and was spotless and very clean. The two levels with the balcony outside the main level and the penthouse provides a great deal of privacy and is very quiet. From each of the staff members to the owner, all were very attentive to ensure our vacation was perfect. The view from the penthouse is wonderful during the day and especially at night when we would lounge in the hot tub underneath the stars with the sound of the waves and you can see the lights in the distance of Cozumel on the horizon.

This condo is our number one choice and we highly recommend it!!! Whether its your first stay in Playa or you have been there before, you can't go wrong with this choice. It is a beautiful condo with first class service and staff. The owner always checks in on us to make sure everything is in order. We give this one two thumbs up!!!
