Kin Maya is set in a centrically located neighborhood just off of Constituyentes and 30th. Ave. in a quiet residential area right downtown Playa del Carmen. Take a leisurely walk along 5th. Ave. shop arts and crafts in the many store or just stop for lunch and a cool tropical drink in one of the sidewalk cafes, restaurants or bars. Easily walk to 'Mamitas' beach or any of the other gorgeous beaches along the water front. 'Mega Comercial Mexicana' one of Mexico's leading supermarkets is virtually across from the complex, just half a block; only Four blocks to Walmart and steps from all type of shops, restaurants, banks and of course Playa's unique Night Life.

A car is not needed as everything is within walking distance including transportation to visit the various sites.

Within a few blocks of the condo, you will find numerous local restaurants of exceptional quality serving everything from the best cuts of meat to the freshest of seafood to organic smoothies. You will also find fine Italian dining just down the street and numerous coffee houses as well.

Puerto Morelos is a quite, easy going, unassuming fishing village with some of the best beaches in the Riviera Maya, their calm, shallow, turquoise waters offer a safe swimming and snorkeling environment for everyone. Snorkel along side sea turtles in the crystal waters of Akumal or visit any one of the unspoiled beaches along the Riviera Maya.

The ruins at Tulum or Coba are relatively close, 40 to 60 minutes drive, an ideal half a day's tour, after visiting ruins return to Playa del Carmen for a succulent dinner at one of 5th avenue's popular restaurants or cook your heart's desire at Kin Maya's gourmet kitchen and save yourself some money on going out.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Gonzalo Guerrero, Playa del Carmen, Q.R., Mexico:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
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.
