About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Breathtaking Caribbean views from a sophisticated Mexican Style Penthouse. Vaulted ceilings, Mexican hardwood cabinets and wood work, three very private ocean front patios and a remarkably well appointed condo make Casa Mahahual a unique vacationing experience. This property has all amenities needed for a comfortable vacation for your family with unusual features like a 55' 3D TV (the condo includes many 3D and regular HD blue ray videos), home theater system and cable channels, full kitchen with espresso maker, unusual contemporary furniture and art made from local hardwoods (Mango and Mexican Teak) and Onyx. And with over 3,600 sq ft of total living space, the condo provides privacy inside and out.

The master bedroom, with a domed bricked ceiling faces the Caribbean allowing to wake up to a breathtaking view of ocean. Wi-fi runs throughout the condo unit, as well as the terrace allowing you to drink your morning coffee or afternoon drink while web-surfing in front of the spectacular view of the ocean and passing sailboats. This unit is great for people who have to work a little each day but don't want to miss a moment of vacation. If you don't want to miss your usual work out, there is a Penthouse level gym next door with views of the ocean.

The complex is located in a quiet gated community for maximum security. It sits on an unusual piece of property that looks more like an exclusive resort than a private residence. An elevator allows quick access to the ocean front with its large pool, sunbathing deck and hammock stations for perfect private relaxation overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Between the pool and the sea you can swim and snorkel in the protected private salt water lagoons (perfect for learning to snorkel). And if just relaxing is what your after, sit with the family in a private natural stone saltwater whirlpool a few feet from breaking waves that create the swirling action of the pool. For the serious snorkeling you can float in the sea just in front of the condo unit where you will see dive boats regularly dropping off their divers.

Pueblo Escondido is only a 15 minute tranquil walk (5 minutes by golf cart or 2 minutes by car) to the center of the town, marina and dolphin lagoon that is inside the gated community. With more than 12 restaurants (and many shops) surrounding the lagoon, there is no need to leave the resort area. However, if you want to visit the near by secluded beaches, the famous Mayan Riviera Eco Parks or archeological sites, or hit the vibrant restaurants, clubs, shops and beach clubs of Playa del Carmen, you will not be more than 10-20 minutes away.

Other important features of the Puerto Aventuras complex are a large grocery store located just outside the gated community; the Unit 402 property management is on site during the week days and usually on weekends. Golf cart rentals are available that allow you to move everywhere in Puerto Aventuras resort without a rental car (you can often find teenagers exploring the resort on golf carts), white sandy beaches are less than 5 minutes walking distance and the community includes a 9 hole golf course.

Contact us by phone or email, to book your stay in paradise. Just a note: we do not accept long term rentals. All rentals require a phone call before confirming rental and signed rental agreement.

Our family of 4 returned from our vacation 2 weeks ago and are wishing we were still there. The condo itself is large and luxurious. It is well appointed and decorated with taste and detail. It was private on the 4th floor. Nobody else on that level through the main stairs/elevator and the views from here were wonderful. We'd spend our mornings watching the sunrise and having coffee on the patio before heading out on local adventures. We'd look forward to returning to the condo for a late afternoon swim in the rooftop pool (on the same level and we never saw anybody else use it.. like our own private pool with a view).

We had been to the area a number of times over the past 20 years and had not experienced Puerto Aventuras. PA is located perfectly between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. You can go one direction to get the energy of vibrant PDC, or the other direction and have the laid-back feel of Tulum or Soliman Bay.

Interacting with Ed was great too. He was responsive and provides a thorough information packet for his guests: directions from Cancun, local restaurants, what to pack, and how to take advantage of the local sites.

We are looking forward to returning in the future! Hopefully Ed will still be sharing his wonderful spot.

We just returned yesterday from 12 days at this wonderful condo. I can't say enough about how great the condo and the community are. Everything was seamless, right from the moment I started communicating with the owner, Ed. Ed was great to deal with, he was very responsive to answer any questions I had and once you book he sends you a very comprehensive package with all kinds of information in it. When we first arrived, I would refer to things that Ed had told me about, within a few days, when we were wondering about something, my husband would say, what did Ed say, lol. We paid through PayPal and received our deposit back within 24 hours of returning home. After looking around down there, I think it is fair to say this is one of the best condos and complexes in the community. The furnishings in the condo are very high end and have a mexican feel. The grounds, pool, hot tub are all wonderful. We spent alot of time out on the patio and used the table top bbq several times. For the 2 of us, it worked out great. When we first arrived, there were a few minor issues and the Property Manager and Ed responded to us and resolved them immediately. We took a shuttle from the airport through CARM Transfers, that worked out great. We didn't rent a car, and after our first day there, decided it was too much walking for us so we rented a golf cart through Bruno (who Ed recommended). They delivered it and picked it up at the condo. We had a great time exploring the community in the cart. It was 35/day. We got groceries at both Walmart in Playa and the Chedrai Grocery store outside the gates at Puerto, (50 pesos by taxi). We took a day trip to Tulum. We booked through Connection Zone, they are in the centre of Puerto. It is a run by a husband and wife team, they have a 7 seat Suburban and it very personalized. We lucked in and it was just the 2 of us that day, I would highly recommend them. We ate at most of the restaurants, Latitude 20 (closest to the condo, good food and good happy hour) Pelican Point, (the fanciest), Café Ole (best food), the Pub (casual, ok), Hippo (our least favorite) and Jessies Gelato (ice cream to die for!). We had the buffet at the Dolphin Discovery, we wouldn't really recommend this. Not all restaurants take credit cards, but we used the bank machines with no problems. We travel every winter and must say this is one of our best holidays we have had in a long time. We hope to return next year!!

What can I say that has not already been said

  • 5 of 5

What can I say that has not already been said, in the other reviews.

One topic I would like to touch on is Value.

If you were to rent ocean view accommodations in the resort hotels, it would be significantly more costly.

Sure you might have room service, but you could also probable have a crowded pool, and noisy neighbors.

Eds condo is Luxurious, and spacious. It is also quiet and relaxing.

In the week we were their (early January), it was like we had our own personal beautiful pool and hot tub. We only saw two other people in it all week.

One of the greatest things the condo offers, is that the vacation doesn’t end when you return to the condo. With the expansive balcony you can relax in comfort, and enjoy the ocean view. When you wake in the morning you won’t feel like you got to rush to get out and start your vacation again. It starts the moment you open your eyes, and look towards the ocean. You can enjoy a coffee on the balcony, have some breakfast, while enjoying the soft breeze, and a breathtaking view, in a quiet and serene atmosphere.

memorable and luxurious!

  • 5 of 5

After a few days staying in a small condo in Playa del Carmen we were really surprised and excited when we stepped inside this beautiful, spacious and luxurious condo at Punta Roca. The view from the deck was breathtaking and sunrises and sunsets were amazing each day. We were really impressed with the quality of this condo- the beautiful furnishings and all modern conveniences. We were a group of 5 and liked to cook so the well equipped kitchen made that very easy.

We walked to the shopping centre in the community often and even saw a couple of spider monkeys playing in a tree by the road near the marina one day. We loved having the hot tub and pool and found we were so comfortable in the condo and Punta Roca grounds that we didn't really venture too far away during our 5 day stay.

This is a wonderful condo and I would highly recommend it to friends heading to Mexico!

At Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is simply an amazing place to stay.

We rented a car and found the condo very easy to get to from the Cancún airport as the resort community is just off the main highway that runs along the coast. Upon arrival we discovered the condo to be very comfortable and beautifully furnished. A magnificent view of the Caribbean Sea is found right from the deck outside the living room and master bedroom. The condo is spacious, clean, and up-to-date with the amenities for everyday living. There are small shops in the community as well as a gas station and a large grocery store just outside of the gates.

There are restaurants and attractions and beaches right inside the Puerto Aventuras community which we checked out in the days after our arrival. In the surrounding area there are so many fabulous things to experience. With my wife and daughter we saw Mayan ruins in Cobá and Tulum, swam with sea turtles and rays in the corals of Akumal, checked out the busy street scene in Playa del Carmen as well as seeking out quiet restaurants in small towns in the area. We didn't even have enough time to make it to Cancún with all we found to do.

Ed provided us with all the information we needed in order to be ready when we arrived to get the most out of our stay. He's very friendly and helpful and was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend this condo to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in this area.

Our family of 4 just spent 8 days of pure heaven in this fabulous condo. Upon arrival, when opening the door for the first time we all ooohed and ahhhed at the panoramic ocean views and the beautiful comfortable furnishings. It was decorated extremely tastefully with an eye for detail and comfort. We appreciated the privacy of being on the 3rd floor and were glad we made that choice. The elevator made it easy if we weren't up for the stairs.

The condo is extremely clean and well taken care of.

The infinity pool is perfect with silky waters overlooking the Carribean Sea.

The location felt extremely safe with a gated entrance and guards screening people as they came in.

Puerta Adventuras was a great location for us as it was close to the places we wanted to go...Akumal for perfect snorkeling right off the beach, Tulum for perfect waves, Playa del Carmen for fun shopping, and even not so far from the Ruins at Coba for biking through the jungle to the Mayan pyramids. Our kids LOVED swimming with the dolphins nearby! Driving was so easy with excellent roads and signage, so glad we rented a car. At the end of the day we were always happy to be back to our condo balcony and said "we could have just stayed here happily ..."

The owner Ed, was so wonderful to correspond with. He thinks of everything and is so helpful with suggestions and helped make our trip that much better.

We will definitely come back and highly recommend!
