About Matt Weatherbee

We moved from Boston to Playa del Carmen, Mexico in 2008 and we haven't looked back since. We came originally on vacation and saw the opportunity to open a successful property management company. Within 3 months of returning from vacation we had quit our jobs, sold everything (except our condo and car) and drove 4,500 miles from Boston to Playa with our 2 miniature schnauzers.

We absolutely love Mexico. The food is fantastic - we eat out often, enjoying a variety of cuisines in one of a kind establishments, most of which are within walking distance of our condo. We have formed a large circle of friends, mostly retired expats, and even host Thanksgiving with usually more than 50 attendees! For Halloween a group of 20+ friends come over, all dressed in costume and we hit 5th Avenue and hand out candy to all the children. It is the most fun day of the entire year!

When we are not working, Matt enjoys working out, reading, playing bridge, cooking gourmet meals and visiting the beach. Allan enjoys watching TV, playing blackjack, eating out, going to the movies and also visiting the beach.

Great Stay at the Elements 108

  • 5 of 5

First time visit to Playa del Carmen and could not have asked for a better place to stay. We arrived late, but Deborah at North American had assisted me with making sure we had transportation to the Elements when we arrived in Cancun. Matt was incredibly responsive to any questions during the stay. The location was perfect for me and my family...close enough to walk to all the restaurants and shops on 5th Avenue, but just far enough away to not be bothered with all the traffic and crowds. The condo was perfect for us and the facilities were great...we spent several of the days exploring the Mayan ruins and Cenotes, and several other hanging by the pool. The beach club is nice, but the beaches close to Playa had an abundance of seaweed...not sure if this was a short-term thing, but many of the surrounding hotels were working to clear it up. Highly recommend Telum and Coba ruins, and swimming in the Cenotes. Kids (age 13 and 15) loved the location as well (especially the pool). Onsite staff was very helpful with last minute ideas around the areas. Highly recommend the Italian restaurant up the street for dinner...great pasta and we even did take out pizza the one night we felt like staying in. We will be back for sure. Thanks again for a relaxing vacation.

Wonderful location and lovely home!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Elements 108! The location is perfect: right on the beach, and a very short walk up to the main drag (5th Avenue) and the many shops and restaurants there, but still far enough away to avoid all of the late-night noise and partying that you would hear if you were staying right on 5th Ave. For some less touristy food options, you can walk just a few blocks up Avenue C.T.M. from the condo: there is an amazing breakfast/lunch/juice bar place, as well as some awesome taco stands! We prepared quite a bit of our own food, and it was about a 25 minute walk or ~$5 USD cab ride to the Mega or Walmart for groceries.

The building and grounds at The Elements are terrific, and we especially enjoyed the large pool (including two different depths of children's pools). There were nearly always available chairs around the pool and at the beach, which was a very nice change from staying at a resort. The condo unit itself was also awesome; wonderful bedrooms, beds, and bathrooms, plenty of space and storage space, a terrific deck/patio, and a nice living and dining room area for everyone to enjoy. The in-unit laundry is also amazing when traveling with kids! Matt was wonderful enough to obtain two pack-and-play cribs for us to rent for our twin toddlers to sleep in.

A few relatively minor drawbacks: 1) The dishwasher does not really clean the dishes, so we ended up just doing dishes by hand and using the dishwasher as a drying rack. 2) There seemed to be a lot of construction going on, making it rather loud and unpleasant to sit out on the lovely patio during the day for much of our stay (though this would of course vary, depending on when you visit). 3) The beach area in front of the condo is near a marina, so the smell of gasoline sometimes drifted over to where we were sitting on the beach.

Overall though, this was a fabulous rental, Matt was wonderfully prompt and responsive in our communications, and we would absolutely stay here again if we return to Playa del Carmen!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. As for the dish washer if you add a bit of white vinegar the dishes come out clean - it cuts the calcium in the water. As for the construction I am sorry for the noise - they were remodeling a unit in the complex, but that work is due to be done in a week.

Fantastic stay at the Elements Condo in Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

My grown sons and I have stayed many times at the Elements and this year tried a different apartment--we had as usual a wonderful time. We love this exquisite condo complex which has what may be the most beautiful pool I have ever seen. The location is fantastic--close to everything but quiet and with a view of the Caribbean. Matt and Alan of North American Standards as usual provide impeccable service--we loved our concierge Deborah who planned excursions for us and made excellent recommendations of activities and restaurants we hadn't tried (like Thanksgiving dinner on the beach!)

Excelent Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The apartment was everything we hoped for.

The pool was fantastic, especially for children.

If we return to PDC, we would go to the same place.
