About the property

2 bedroom, 2.5 bath Luxury Duplex with Rooftop pool. Perfect for groups and fam

This is a beautifully Modern Luxurious condo in the perfect location in Playa. It is perfectly located on the North side of playa on Coco beach. It is a 7 minute walk to Little Italy and Mamitas Beach. The condo has arguably the best rooftop pool in Playa! It is 2 blocks from the Beach. Canibal Royal one of trendiest beach club is a stone throw away, and the world famous Mamitas Beach is a short 7 minute walk.

The condo has 2 large Bedrooms and full bath in each. Each room has a King size bed, and 50 inch and 42 inch tv with all the channels you can imagine. This condo is a duplex with a loft as well. The loft has a futon and pulls out another queen bed. We also have blow up mattress that is a queen. Each bedroom has a bose radio for your IPOD to hook up to.

The living room has L shaped sofa, and 50 inch plasma. It also has BOSE sound machine. We have marble kitchen table that seats 6.

The kitchen has all the utensils , dishes, plates etc, that you can imagine to cook anything you want. However, if you have been to Playa, then you most likely will walk on 5th ave and enjoy one of the many restaurants.

We also have a private garage, and private entrance from the garage that enters the apt. We also just bought a outside sofa to relax right outside the condo where you can lay down to read a book, have a drink, and just hang out with your friends and family. A unique area not many other condos have.

We have 6 beach chairs, umbrellas , plenty of large beach towels, that you can take directly to the beach with coolers for your use so you can take your food and drinks right to the beach.

This is the only duplex in DEVA that has a half bath. We custom made a half bath were the Washer /Dryer was and moved that to the loft to make the condo more practical to larger guests and so your guests don't have to use the bathrooms in the bedrooms.

Air conditioners are in every room and work great. We have a large 5 gallon fresh water cooler for you so you always have fresh water.

I am a tennis pro so I leave tennis rackets, balls, and even ones you can use on the beach. Plus some kids balls too.

The condo is walkable to everything and just far enough away from the some of the loud nightlife, and party scene so it is the best of both worlds.

About Michael Dowd

I have been going to Playa for 8 years now as my home away from home, and 4 years ago, I decided to buy a condo here. I bought it with a good friend I went to college with. We use it about once a month, and I just get giddy when I think of Playa. We are just now for the first time this attempting to share our condo for others to enjoy. I live in New York city and work in the Tennis management. Tennis Anyone?!

Michael Dowd purchased this condo in 2010

Why Michael Dowd chose Playa del Carmen

I was going to playa for 4 years before I bought this playa including a full winter, so I know Playa very well. I chose DEVA on Coco Beach because its close and walkable to everything, but you are still far away from the nightlife and sometimes loud party parts of Playa if you want some peace and quite. DEVA also has one of the best rooftop pools in the city. There are only 24 units and usually we have the whole rooftop to ourselves. Also our condo is unique being a Duplex. There are very few condos that has this layout and makes it absolutely unique and beautiful.

What makes this condo unique

You are 2 block to the beach.

You are 2 blocks to the the Beach club Canibal Royal

You are a 7 minute walk to the world famous Mamitas Beach

2 minute walk to 5th ave.

Rooftop pool and with underground parking

You don't need a car/taxi, but at the same time you can enjoy quiet time, and are close enough to the nightlife and best restaurants in playa.

Extremely nice and comfortable modern condo with everything you might need!Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay with my family. Everything was very clean and ready for us to move in. The condo has two levels and on each level there is a large bedroom with a shower which was supper convenient. We liked that the condo is in a very quit street and yet very close to the main street with all the restaurants and shops as well some of the best beaches at Playa del Carmen. The roof top also has a very nice pool with a hot tub which was perfect for evenings watching the sunset. On top of everything Michael and Gary were supper nice making sure we are happy with our stay. I would definitely go there again! Highly recommend you go and see it yourself!

Nice stay but not perfect

  • 4 of 5

We liked our stay her but are unsure if we would do this same trip again. Overall the unit was as described on the VRBO site. The property was spacious, clean, and comfortable and the location was close to tourist zone and beach. We had ample time to wind down and enjoyed the roof top pool which was quiet and relaxing.

There were a few issues. The Internet was down much of our stay though it was repaired and working better in the end. My family was not in a position to be without connection so this was a bit of a hassle. Also, the air conditioning went out on our second to last day which caused some uncomfort. The hot tub on the roof was broken the whole time and the pool had a couple of days where you could not see the bottom.

The other issue had nothing to do with this specific property but all of Riviera Maya. During this trip the coast line was experiencing some kind of sea grass invasion. All of the beaches were covered in piles of this grass which you had to walk and then swim in. They were hauling it out with front loaders and dump trucks. Nobody seemed to know why this invasion is occurring thus unable to predict when it will go ahead. I would want to be assured this was taken care of before going back.

All in all we had a great ten days with our family though I am unsure I would do this exact same trip again.

Beautiful Modern Condo

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I and another couple loved the accomodations in Playa Del Carmen. Modern, clean, tons of space. We stayed for 10 days, would have loved more time there but something called work got in the way. Two large bedrooms with king beds and full three piece bathrooms in each bedroom. There was also a half bath on the main floor which was very convenient. Excellent neighbours who were very helpful with places to dine and shop for groceries. The roof top pool area was lovely, had to get up early to save a spot, was okay though because we saw some beautiful sunrises over the ocean. Not too far from the beach, (a short 3-4 min walk) which we didn't spend a lot of time at due to the excessive amounts of sea weed this year. We couldn't believe how much 5th Ave has expanded. We were in Playa Del Carmen 5 years ago, very different. It lost some of the charm with commercialization. Our location was far enough away from that so that was another bonus. No noise at night while you tried to go to sleep. The kitchen was very nice but lacking some conveniences such as cheese grater, vegetable peeler, wine glasses, larger serving bowls/platters. We weren't concerned too much as we did most of our dinners on 5th Ave, we did have breakfast and lunch at the condo though. Two large seating areas, as well as the patio outside. We used the patio the most, as we got the late afternoon shade, which was welcome after being in the heat for the earlier part of the day. Would sit out there for happy hour and when we returned from our dinner on 5th ave. We did get a noise complaint as we played music past 10 pm on our first night so the security guard asked us politely to turn it off. Security personnel there 24/7 which was very comforting. Air conditioning was spotty but sufficient. Drains in the second level sink and shower were slow. There is laundry facilities on the second level as well which we definitely used, especially to do beach/bath towels. Overall we loved our stay and would definitely recommend it for couples 40 and over, retirees.

Fantastic, Large, Modern condo with great roof top pool/hot tub

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at this condo. At the time of our visit, the description of the condo was accurate. It is a large place, on two levels, and very nicely decorated. Kitchen is fully stocked, and has a water filter installed in the kitchen sink, as well as a water cooler with purified water. The building location is just a bit north of "tourist central" in a quieter neighborhood - really liked this location since it was easy to access all the restaurants, etc in the center, and be near the beach. Great to have a parking space in the garage. The internet in the unit is not very fast; but that may just be the nature of internet service in Playa. This building (deva) also has a great roof top pool and hot tub - with great views out to the beach and ocean. The building overall is very well maintained.

Beautiful home + ideal location = dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

I was in a bind, and Michael very kindly went out of his way to rent me his place at the last minute. Not only was he a very respectful and attentive host, but his condo is spectacular! In my opinion, it's perfectly located as it is just two blocks from the beach, and a little off the beaten path--a couple blocks down from Fifth Avenue, but not in the middle of the touristy action. Additionally, the condo itself is well-appointed with all the amenities any guest could need. The rooftop pool is a special treat with a gorgeous view of the ocean and Cozumel. I would be honored to rent from Michael again!
