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. Matt and Allan

Matt Weatherbee purchased this house in 2002

Why Matt Weatherbee chose Quintana Roo

This is the most popular spot in Playa - a private gated community with stand alone homes. The beach is vast with soft white sand and turquoise waters and is only about 100 steps from your front door. I also love the roof deck with ocean view.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

One of the rooms had zero AC available, WIFI was almost non existent, refrigerator wasn't working the first day and ruined 2 dinners for us, and absolutely no hot water.

We weren't created when we arrived by the management company known as North America Standards and Deborah who was out point person was very rude and dismissive over the phone. So in essence the experience was not good, but we had to make the most of it.

I would never go back,

Matt, when can we collect our deposit ?

Villa Vista Del Mar is a castle!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Playa. We really enjoyed Villa Vista Del Mar. Staying here was the perfect way to get the feel of the area. We had our own rental van so we chose to do our own parking and site seeing without using tour services. Parking was easy and it is far enough away from busy city streets to feel simultaneously secluded and near everything. We were an extended family of 8 and the number of bedrooms, bathrooms and amount of living space was perfect for us. Plenty of room for the kids, two rooftop areas for getting away for the long view and a nice little pool in front. The beach is just down the street (either direction) and there are actually some interesting ruins right in the development! Hopefully we'll be booking again soon as I'm already missing it.

This place is a castle. Lots of space, beautiful finishes and great location.

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of eight and it met our needs perfectly. Lots of space, bathrooms for everyone and a very short walk to the beach and the town. The neighborhood is beautiful and there are Mayan ruins just down the block!

PLAYA DEL CARMEN, MEXICO ...A FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!!!

  • 5 of 5

Playa Del Carmen has perfect weather ,day and night. The people at North American Standard are absolutely fantastic to insure that your stay is perfect. The house is located in Phase One of Playa Car. It is a palm tree lined , inlaid brick pavement in a serene environment. This was our 3rd year there and we are already booked for 2018. The house is outstanding and well maintained, fully air conditioned and private pool. House keeping is included with the rental. All of the local Mexican are the most hospitable, friendly people one could hope to ever meet. The famous 5th ave is a 50 block avenue that parallels the Caribbean Sea the is lined with wonderful restaurants, shops and night clubs. It has a festive mood from mid day tll the wee hours of the morning and is extremely safe. Try it, you will be glad you did.

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 4 of 5

This home was beautiful and just steps from the beach and minutes to many restaurants and shops. The wifi had difficulty working, and we weren't sure how to light the oven...but the manager was very responsive. We had plenty of room for our extended family to stay and loved all the private bathrooms. We would stay here again!
