About Whitney Lopez & Lynn Brandow

My parents built this house in the 1990's for our family to stay during vacations. In 2004 I moved into the house intending to stay for 6 months. 6 months quickly turned into many many years. Four years ago I decided to move back to upstate NY to be closer to my family and for my children to attend school. During the past 20 years numerous friends and family have come to visit and stay with us. During their vacations we were constantly asked 'why don't you rent your home for vacationers'. Instead of leaving the house empty we took the advice of friends, we decided to turn our home into a vacation home for sophisticated travelers. We began 2 years ago with our studio #490533 which is on the first floor of the house (my children's old room). Then we remodeled the main apartment on the first floor (this Apartment) #512638. And last year we finished a 1 Bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor #761146. We also have another apartment on the 3rd floor that we are finishing right now and will have ready for November 2015. I spent the month of July this past year in this apartment with my 2 children. It was perfect and has everything you could possibly need.

Whitney Lopez & Lynn Brandow purchased this house in 1995

Very liveable condo.

  • 5 of 5

This first floor home was a great experience. We were able to meet and chat with other neighbors on our patio. It was nice being a part of a community and still be within walking distance to a large amount of restaurants. The unit was superb, well decorated and most comfortable. Although we didn't cook the kitchen was well equipped with the latest of appliances. Am hoping to return next year to this home.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I were invited to a wedding in Playa Del Carmen & chose to rent this home rather than one of the all inclusive hotels. It was a wonderful spot. The home was immaculate, spacious, & lovely. About a 5 minute walk to 5th ave-the shopping/restaurant Mecca & about 10 minutes to the beach. We had some wonderful meals using the large grill. Lovely front porch for morning coffee & evening meals. Comfortable beds, beautiful bathrooms, completely equipped kitchen. Our don, wife, & 6 mo. old daughter joined us. Still enough room to enjoy one another. Water delivered every few days & house cleaned every 3 days. Perfect spot in Playa. We were also able to take day trips by bus to Mayan ruins which was fabulous.

Perfect location & stylish pad!

  • 5 of 5

This ultra modern apartment was perfect for my stay in Playa. The bed was super comfy, A/C in every room & the shower/bathrooms were huge! Having laundry facilities was awesome, perfect for a large family. The best thing about this place is the location though. You're only a 5 minute walk from 5th Avenue but far enough back (and inside a gated community) so it's really quiet. Whitney was lovely to deal with, super responsive and helpful with suggestions on things to do and see. The in-house compendium is chocka full of great restaurant suggestions, I tried all of them and she was spot-on :o) Will definitely stay here again!

Relax and Enjoy the Peace and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment. It is just as pictured. The outdoor covered patio is great. We cooked 3 meals on the grill and enjoyed reading/coffee each morning on the patio . The apartment is in close proximity to groceries. It is an easy walk to 5th Ave. and the beach. It was nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave., yet be close enough to walk to the stores and restaurants. We did not have a car and were able to navigate fairly well. While there is no pool at the complex, there is a good bar/restaurant on 20th and 34th that has a pool. The owners were accommodating and answered e-mails and phone calls promptly. Housekeepers arrived mid week to clean. We would definitely recommend this vacation home.

Truly outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks - Feb. 24 - Mar. 7 in this classy Playa condo. The place is amazingly well done — all spotless tile. It's new, fresh, and the appliances and amenities are simply top-knotch. We came with a relative who took the second bedroom with its own beautiful tiled bathroom and washer/dryer. We especially enjoyed the covered patio area out front with the outdoor grill. We had our morning coffees there and late into the evening we'd talk with some of the other guests - from all over the world! We liked the gated-access feature, too - it just feels good coming and going. Its location in Playa is also perfect. We loved having a parking space right in front of the condo, but we mostly walked everywhere. Playa isn't a sleepy little village anymore and parking around some parts of town can be scarce. It's an easy walk to Fifth Avenue with all the shopping and restaurants - and two more blocks down to the beach. The owners told us about excellent beach messages on the beach at about 39th Street. The staff were wonderful - skilled, professional, and so reasonably priced - we went almost everyday. Talk about a dream vacation! You will be so glad you chose this place - close to everything, but far enough away that you don't have to listen to it all night. The ring binder with restaurants and tours is a good bet. We tried many, but also tried some on our own. We drove to Tulum and Sian Ka'an nature reserve, took a day bus tour of Chichen Itza. We can't wait to go again next winter.

Modern Mexican Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved this cool, modern accommodation in a breathtakingly beautiful and friendly tropical location. We stayed here 15 years ago and, newly renovated in the current Mexican style of glass, tiles and steel, the property is even lovelier than before. We especially enjoyed the comfort of staying in a secure, gated community and having the convenience of a parking spot, although it's only a short walk to the beach and the nicest bars, restaurants and shops of avenida cinco. Come to Playa and experience the magic! We'll be back.
