About Rick Fernandez

Your Host - Rick Fernandez

Rick is a semi-retired, highly active individual with a life-long experience assuring the needs of guests are looked after beyond expectations. He started his service industry career in Canada back in the early 1970's and up until mid 2012 he worked for major hotels in Canada and Mexico as senior manager. Once he arrived on the Mayan Riviera in the 1990's he knew he was home and quickly envision a small vacation rental business. In 2011 he stared with his first rental in Puerto Morelos and shortly after followed with a penthouse condo in Playa del Carmen.

Proud of his new role as owner / host he enjoys welcoming guest from around the world and sharing with them the simple beauty, comfort and peacefulness of the Maya Riviera and the properties he rents throughout the year. With a clear view and long term commitment to service, attention to his guests is of out most importance and takes special pride on providing first class, well looked-after properties always striving to surpass guest expectations.

Rick Fernandez purchased this condo in 2012

Why Rick Fernandez chose Gonzalo Guerrero

Due to beautiful beaches, ambiance, great restaurants, and engaging social life, Playa del Carmen has become a popular destination. Having a rental property already in Puerto Morelos, I wanted a second one that could complement the first one and offer my guest a second location and lodging option within the Riviera Maya.

Playa del Carmen was the preferred choice because of the ambience and intimacy of this small city. Kin Maya was the viable option because of comfort, location and proximity to beach and services.

What makes this condo unique

This is a well maintained, centrally located property close to everything anyone would need for a 2 night or a 2 month stay; comfortable and convenient in a quite, attractive, and safe neighborhood a short distance from the beach.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars - Reviewed March 25, 2014

I just spent ten days at Kin Maya last February with husband and one other couple, what a great place! The apartment is very comfortable and has everything we could possibly need, we made extensive use of the solarium where we spent the afternoons enjoying a bottle of wine while cooking our favorite steak in the BBQ grill.

The place is very well cared for and so conveniently located we walk everywhere, beach is only 5 blocks away and half a block to supermarket (Mega Comercial).

Rick was always there for us with help and suggestions, his service and attention to detail made our vacation even more enjoyable.

Pool, amenities, location and Rick's service set this place apart, highly recommended and most definitely we'll be back.

Super stay.

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas and New Year 2017 here in Rick's apartment. It was a fantastic holiday. The apartment was even better than the photos. Very clean and had everything you could need. It was a great location, only short walk to the beach and centre and yet was quiet and had great privacy. We really enjoyed the rooftop terrace. Highly recommend!

Beautiful apartment close to everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Rick's condo. It was spacious and well appointed. The rooftop terrace with plunge pool was so lovely we spent a lot of our time up there planning our visits to the local attractions. Rick was so thoughtful meeting us with cold drinks and showing us how things work. The attention to detail was fantastic we had everything we needed for a great holiday. The location was ideal for the supermarket and plenty of eateries. Try the small restaurants near the collectivo stop or sandra's on 15th for a more authentic and inexpensive experience. Highly recommended.

Perfect Condo in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo for this beautiful vacation. Rick is amazingly helpful and attentive. He is a phone call away for all of your needs or wants. The condo is perfectly located near grocery stores, great restaurants and entertainment. The rooftop patio and lounging pool is excellent for morning coffee then evening cocktails. We cooked fresh shrimp and fish on the electric grill which was very nice. Rick has the patio beautifully adorned with green foliage and pretty flowering plants. We spent our down time on the patio. Love it!!!!

Clean and spacious condo located in a secure complex with 24 hour security.

Walking around Playa was nice but there are always cheap taxis right outside of the condo complex if walking is not your thing. The beach is a good ten minute walk and 5th street is a few blocks away.

This will definitely be returning!
