About the property

2 Bd, 2 Ba and 2ample single beds in living room. Between the Beach and La Quint

Refurbished condo, fully equipped with two bedroom, two bath, dining and living area, laundry and kitchen. The seats in the living area are single beds, not pull out beds, but fully confortable beds with removable back support cushions for using as living room during the day.

It is on the first level which is great after you have spent your day out walking either on the beach or shopping in La Quinta Playa del Carmen.

It is spacious and allows for privacy but at the same time it's set up in a way that invites you to relax and share with your group.

The pool is literally 5 steps away from our door.

The condo has 1 parking space, although it is rarely used (unless you purchase the guided tour offered further in this same listing).

We offer personal greeting and check in-out service by our condo administrator Gaspar. He is excellent and will aid you in any needs you may have during your stay. (plus he lives right on on top of our unit on the second level)

Housecleaning is included only once during your stay. Additional cleaning is offered at $35 per event.

We offer a bicycle and a few other beach items you could use at a rate and additional deposit.

The bicycle comes in very handy when you wish to go buy some groceries or a freshly made bread in the morning.

The items you could take to the beach, such as IceChest, Kayak, Buggy Board, beach chairs, snorkeling equipment, etc; are most convenient and allow for you to expand your experience in Playa del Carmen.

The condo is excellently located 100 barefoot steps from 'Mamitas' beach with the most beautiful blue Caribbean waters, and another 100 steps from the famous 'La Quinta' stroll. It is very peaceful and nice.

The building has 25 other apartments in three different levels. Right out side the gate there are restaurants, little local shops, scuba diving and snorkeling centers, etc... There is security 24/7, but please allwways lock doors and windows..... (Always).

It is honestly the best choice for a group of 4 - 6 people. Weather it is your first time in Playa del Carmen or a return, you wont want to leave.

It can't get much better than this. It truly is a paradise.

You will love it!

About Federico Compean

We fell in love with Playa del Carmen back in 2001, and have visited most years since. This place has some kind of magic that traps you into positive thoughts and inspires your soul. It has been a great experience for us and allowed our creativity to flow and flourish.

Our family has grown tight in part to our time spent here. We are highly active in water sports, like diving, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, etc....

We feel this something everyone should enjoy, and so we share our space with you.

Please give me a call or e-mail me once you are there so I can give you all the different pointers around the area.

Why Federico Compean chose Gonzalo Guerrero

This property is extremely well located. You have the wonderful blue Caribbean waters and white sandy beach just 100 meters (300ft) away. The 5th avenue stroll (La quinta) is just 2 small blocks away, and is centrally located amongst the best restaurants and shops of the Stroll. Starbucks right on the corner.

This property is quiet and safe. Very comfortably located on the first floor just 5 steps from the pool. Unmatchable even within the other condos in the building.

What makes this condo unique

- Close to the best places in town

- Quiet and relaxed

- Safe from everything (even weather)

- Personalized check in - out service from our property manager

Awesome location! Great value! Beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from Nov. 16th to the 30th. This condo really is very close to the beach! Even with all of the night life outside, the condo stays very quiet inside! Beds are very comfortable. Plenty of linens and towels. If we needed anything we called Gaspar and he responded quickly. I hope to be able to stay here again! If you rent here, you will not be disappointed! I've been coming to playa for over 15 years. This truly is an exceptional value for being so very close to the beach, stores and nightlife. It doesn't get any better than this for the value! The condo is beautiful! We also felt very safe here!

Great Condo, Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

After searching and trying to book many different condos with no replies from owner or managers and even being scammed out of a deposit for a condo on a different website I finally found the right condo. Fedrico responded to my request within an hour! The process was quick and easy .The Condo is located in a perfect spot right between a great beach and a great section of 5th. The complex is quiet, secure and well maintained. This was my Families first trip to Playa and It is an amazing place. The locals are so helpful and friendly we never once felt unsafe. Do yourself a favor and rent this condo.

Nice condo, great location

  • 4 of 5

The condo is nice sized and well setup for family or two couples. Nice kitchen with all the dishes and utensiles you need with nice washer/drier but no dishwasher. It has about everything you need except maybe space to unpack if you are there for a week like we were. There is adequate space to hang up cloths but no place to put cloths in drawers, minor inconvenience.

It is two short blocks for the beach and Mamita's Beach club. Going the other way two blocks you on on 5th which is the major shopping, restaurant and bar area with many choices so you can find what fits your interest.

It is a secure building and we were comfortable the entire time we were in the area and never felt uncomfortable. Parking if you have a car might be a challenge and the pool is fairly small but nice with shower and bbq grill.

Buena estancia

  • 4 of 5

Pros: planta baja, espacio para estacionamiento, alberca a la puerta del condo, excelente ubicacion, cercas de todo, de la playa, de quinta ave., Gaspar muy amable, cocina con todos los utencilios necesarios, internet y netflix, lavadora y secadora.

Contra: la sala parecia un horno, el aire acondicionado no funcionaba, ni Gaspar ni la muchacha del servicio pudieron hacerlo funcionar.

La bomba del agua estaba en la parte de atras de la recamara principal y se prendia cada 5 minutos, parecia que la teniamos en la cabecera de la cama no dejaba dormir.

Estuvimos un dia y medio sin agua.

El sanitario de la recamara principal no funcionaba bien, a veces llenaba el deposito y a veces no.
