About the property

2 bedroom, 1250 sq. ft., roof-top oceanview

Located in the most unique architectural luxury condo building in Playa, this condo is a renter's heaven. Close enough to walk to all attractions. 200 paces in one direction will take you to the white sand of Coco beach while 200 paces in the other direction will have you at 5th Ave, a 1.5 mile long stretch of hip spots: Stores, clubs, bars, restaurants and coffee shops and a casino.

Heliko is a gated condominium with 24hr Security, with only 24 units, making it an exclusive, quiet, relaxing choice for the perfect getaway.

An elevator makes it easy to access with luggage and groceries and will also take you to the roof-top pool and hot tub where you will be able to relax on lounge chairs.

The condo is beautifully decorated: Marble floors and bathrooms, granite top kitchen counters, comfortable mattresses, Wi-Fi Internet access, colorful kitchen dishes and utensils.

3 separate air condition units make sure the temperature is always comfortable: One unit in the living room and one in each bedroom.

Bar stools at the kitchen island make the perfect seating for a quick breakfast for 2 while the marble dining table seats 8.

The living room features Italian leather furniture, an L-shaped sofa and a comfortable high-back armchair, as well as a 42” HDTV with cable service and a Blu-Ray player.

You’ll also find a guide to attractions and the best dining in Playa.

The Master bedroom has a king size bed while the guest room bed could easily be set-up as a king size or two twin beds (our maids will set the beds up to your specs prior to your arrival).

The beach features a Beach Club, restaurant & bar, as well as a sea-doo rental and massage tents.

The condo is equipped with 4 beach chairs, a zero-gravity chair and a large beach umbrella which could all be mounted on a large cooler-on-wheels and wheeled to the beach.

About Niv Ben-Haim

My wife and I are business professionals who visited Playa del Carmen and simply fell in love with the place. We have invested time and money in our luxury condo to make sure it's the perfect home-away-from-home to us and our guests. We spared no effort and expense in decorating and equipping it with all that's required for the perfect getaway.

Niv Ben-Haim purchased this condo in 2012

Why Niv Ben-Haim chose Zazil-ha

Heliko is a unique condo building in Playa del Carmen, which is like no other place around the caribean sea: A quiet town yet with party spots, no high-rise buildings, unbelievable year-round weather and a huge selection of great dining spots and beach locations.

What makes this condo unique

Extremely close to beach in a quiet area of Playa del Carmen, open concept architecture of the building, gated and safe environment with 24/7 security.

Very impressive! This is a new building convenient to everything!!

  • 5 of 5

Also felt safe as can be as its a gated building with a security guard as well. Close enough to 5th ave to be a part of the action but in a nice quiet area a block from the beach

World class Italian restaurant right a cross the street

Would definitely recommend this property!!

Everything You Need for a Great Playa Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our needs as family members came and went over a 3-week period for school spring breaks March 2017. Location near beaches and shops and restaurants is outstanding. Didn't bother with a car as Playa is very walkable, and taxis are everywhere, easy to hail, and inexpensive if you don't want to walk. There are 2 convenience stores no more than a block away for the necessities.

Mostly quiet, friendly neighborhood despite some construction going on across the street. Condo itself is very well-furnished, with everything needed to cook in and enjoy the area. Rooftop pool area was a hit for our group of sun worshippers, and a good spot to meet other visitors in the building. Especially liked Niv's guide to the area, and the backpack beach chairs provided which allowed us to hike down the north beaches to quieter areas.

Niv and his property manager were extremely responsive to questions and issues. We had an issue for a day with power to part of the condo that had everyone baffled initially, but property management team got on it, brought us an extension cord to keep the refrigerator/freezer going to avoid losing the food we'd purchased, and had the problem resolved and full power back within a day.

I would go back to Playa and this unit in a heartbeat.

Great location, very nice condo

  • 4 of 5

You would have a hard time finding a condo in a better location. 1.5 blocks to the beach and 1.5 blocks to 5th Ave. This is located at the quiet end of 5th, but still close to the action. Condo was nice and clean and very spacious for the 4 of us. It would be great if a few necessities were included with the rental (ie laundry soap & dishwasher soap). For the amount of time we were there it was a bit annoying to have to buy those soaps and then leave 90% for the next guests. Overall, great vacation and location.

Great condo and safe location

  • 5 of 5

Heliko is a great condo community in a nice, safe area very close to the beach. I was here for 10 days and walking to 5th Ave and grabbing basic things from the 7/11 across the street was very convenient. The condo provides plenty of towels, umbrellas, hats and a safe to keep your valuables secure.

This condo provides everything such as a coffee maker (kind of like keurig type) which worked great and it already came with some flavors which is a big plus for coffee drinkers. All utensils, pots and pans for cooking and even salt were included at no extra charge.

Niv, the owner, check in on me to make sure everything was going great during my stay. I highly recommend anyone to book this awesome condo!

Anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 10 days and the 2 bedroom 3 bath condo was great. My husband, father and myself took USA transfers (private ride) from airport and were greeted at airport they had free water and $2.00 beers for our trip to Playa. Dropped at front door and were greated by staff who helped us to our room. The room was just as described new, modern, clean and well equipped. It was on the quieter end of 5th Ave, and only a short walk to restaurants or beach. A lot of construction with all the new condos going up, but since we were at the beach every day it didn't matter. It was noisy if you did want to sit on balcony. Every evening we would enjoy a cool beverage at the roof top pool and met other guests and owners sharing stories of what restaurants/ beach bars to try. Very fun. It was nice to have washer/ dryer, beach chairs /cooler/umbrella available. The building was very secure and felt safe, on site staff always around and friendly. This place won't disappoint. Would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Robin. Glad you had a great time. With Playa booming we've had a lot of construction but luckily there's no more space to build in our area and construction is almost done. Hope to host you again in the future. Niv.

Excellent place to stay at!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and this place was perfect! The condo was very nice and comfortable, it includes everything you'll need for a great vacation. The condo is in great location as its close to 5th Ave and several restaurants as well as the beach and a 7/11. The place felt safe overall with a security outside all the time. It was easy to communicate with Niv and he was really helpful. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone and would even stay here again!
