About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, sleeps 8 + Great Room, 2 Full Baths and use of Pool & Cenote

Enjoy the best of both worlds! This beautiful 1800 sq. ft condo, nestled in a tropical setting, is just one block from a white, sandy beach and only 100 yards from 10th Avenue where Playa Del Carmen starts. Only 5 minutes from the World Famous Avenida Cinco (5th Avenue).

Walk into this light and spacious villa and instantly feel 'at home in mexico.' Sheer drapes crown the 15 ft. floor to ceiling balcony glass doors, luxurious furnishings offer the utmost comfort, and pillow top beds with high thread count Egyptian cotton sheets provide a dreamy rest. Each bathroom features above-counter onyx sinks and tumbled marble accents under the rain shower head.

Our villa includes three bedrooms (2 with large flat screen TV's and and satellite cable), bose docking station, stereo in main living room, dvd player on one TV with lots of recent movies for all ages, free wifi, board games, books, 5 beach loungers, 3 beach umbrellas, surf board, ball pit and some toys for kids. You are welcome to use everything!

The condo is equipped with 4 beds ( 1 King, 1 Queen, 2 Singles and 1 Futon couch). Condo sleeps between 6-8 people comfortably.

The fully-equipped kitchen includes a Bosch stove, microwave, blender, coffee maker and concrete countertops. We do not charge extra for housekeeping before and after your stay. We include housekeeping the day before your stay and one time during your stay (with a 7 night minimum). Additional housekeeping services is available for only $25/day (US).

The living / dining area is bright and sunny, with modern lighting and artwork. Walk out onto the balcony and you can hear the on-property waterfall from the Cenote (only Centoe in Playacar with a natural well right on property). Very refreshing fresh water and extremely clean to swim in. Enjoy the call of exotic birds from the 35-acre aviary across the street. For breakfasts or evening solitude, relax on the spacious balcony, surrounded by palms overlooking the pool and Cenote. There is only 20 condos on the property so it is never busy. There are plenty of nice loungers, chairs, tables and a hammock. Great for having lunch while sitting around the pool and Cenote. The pool is two tiered and heated all year round. It is always warm. The shallow area is 1.5 ft deep so it is great for relaxing or little kids and the deeper area is 5 ft deep. Half the pool is in the sun and half in the shade so you get the best of both worlds.

Ready for the beach? Grab the beach chairs, fill the cooler and walk up some stairs past some ancient mayan ruins to the gorgeous white sand beach with beautiful turquoise water. It is simply amazing and voted by many as top three most beautiful beaches in the world! The beach is only one block away so it is only a few minutes from the condo.

For shopping, lunch, dinners, stroll four blocks to the beautiful pedestrian plaza, featuring water fountains and a variety of shops. Restaurants include an eclectic mix from fine international dining to casual authentic mexican. Spectacular attractions are minutes away, including xcaret eco-waterpark, xplor adventure park, tulum mayan ruins (on a seaside cliff), beautiful xel-ha park, golf courses and spas. World-class diving at Cozumel, Akumal and other locations can be arranged through reliable tour guides.

Condo MAR H20 is a peaceful retreat in gated Playacar community in Phase II. 20-condo units with 24-hour guard service complete with cameras surrounding the property. Our guests are cared for by an efficient and lovely bi-lingual property manager (Esperanza - Espe for short). This is a beautiful and unique place. You will really appreciate how special the location is when you see some of the noisy 'on 5th' condos, or others that are miles from 5th avenue.

Please read reviews for more detail on this condo. We really do strive to make everything perfect for your vacation. We assist our renters with transportation from the airport to the condo and can pre-stock the condo with groceries for a nominal fee. Out house manager and her family frequently cooks home cooked meals for our guests. The cost is nominal and they do everything. The food is spectacular. What can be better than having a home cooked meal for you and your family while you're on vacation.

We also have a high chair, stroller and a pack and play for those with little ones.

This condo has the best of both worlds. It is only a few minutes to the beach and a few minutes to downtown. You are only minutes from the world famous 5th Avenue that includes amazing restaurants, bars and shopping. You can lay low and relax by the pool and cenote or spend the day at the beach. If you are more adventurous there are many tours and activities that are no more than a 30 minute drive from the condo. Drive to Akumel and go snorkeling if you want to see stingrays and massive sea turtles, take the ferry to Cozumel and scuba/snorkel the 2nd largest reef in the world, rent a car or buggy and drive to Tulum, parasail or rent jetski's on the beach in Playacar, take the kids to wild water kingdom in Cancun or go shopping at their duty free mall, go deep sea fishing, swim with whale sharks in Puerto Morales (near Cancun), take a taxi or drive to Explore that has two zip line courses with some runs landing in the water (very cool), atv's that drive through the jungle and cenotes, swim through underwater cenotes (caves), or visit Xel-Cha and go snorkeling or swim with the Dolphins. For a complete list of activities or if you want some suggestions please feel free and call as we know the area extremely well.

Year Purchased: 2005

About: We are a family from Canada who has been visiting the white sand beaches of Playa Del Carmen for more than 18 years. We especially appreciate the idea of having peaceful solitude at Condo MAR, while being able to enjoy the local flavors, music and hospitality that Playa del Carmen offers just blocks from the condo. We loved the condo development and proximity to everything so much we bought one of the condo's we regularly rented!

Why Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
Condo MAR H20 is easy to get to -- fly into Cancun Airport and drive south 35 miles (only 35-40 minutes). We always feel safe in Playa del Carmen. We find that PDC offers any kind of vacation you choose -- from active diving and sight-seeing, to long, lazy days at the beach. The people are friendly and helpful -- even if you don't speak Spanish, you won't have a problem with communication.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Condo MAR was built in 2005, and is clean and modern. The 15 ft. balcony doors keep the condo light and sunny. Sun-blocker shades in both bedrooms compliment sleepy mornings and afternoon siestas. The central air is zoned for each bedroom, and the bedrooms are separated by the living room / dining room for privacy. The best feature is the Fresh Water Cenote that boasts a 2 story waterfall. The Cenote is exclusive to the 20 condos owners and it really is a once in a lifetime experience. We also have one of the best house managers in Esperanza (Espe). She and her family take great pride in ensuring our renters are happy. They live only 5 minutes from the condo so they are extremely accessible. The condo is so close to town you can walk there several times a day. The location cannot be beat!
