About the property

Beautiful condo 2 blocks from the beach and 2 blocks from 5th Avenue

Beautiful 2 bedroom + 2.5 bathroom condo in Playa del Carmen. We are the happy owners of a condo in Cancun (which has great reviews, check property 487294 here at VRBO) and this great condo in fantastic Playa del Carmen.

Here in Playa (as the locals call it) we have the best of 2 worlds within a 5-10 minute walk: outstanding beaches (with fantastic beach clubs) and the famous 5th Avenue, both just 2 blocks away, but at the same time our condo is in a very calm neighborhood in a beautiful new building.

The ocean views from the rooftop pool are stunning, please look at the pictures we have posted. It is an ideal place to spend a lazy afternoon after a very active day, either with family, friends, your special other one or even with a good book and a glass of wine or cup of coffee.

We, as fellow travellers and users of this condo, have taken a lot of care in having equipped the condo with everything that you need. We want you to have a great stress free holiday.

The company that manages our property can offer different options to add to your holiday: private chef (catering services in the privacy and convenience of the condo or the rooftop area); babysitting services; tours & excursions (scheduled tours to different places near Playa del Carmen such as Tulum, Chichen Itza, among others); housekeeping services; laundry services; airport transportation; golf experiences and spa options (a full range of pampering services).

Families are very welcomed at our condo, with children of any age. For adult only groups (no parents in the grouo), due to our building's bylaws we have a 25+ year restriction regarding all-adult groups. This is a nonsmoking property.

We are the happy owners of this condo in Playa and another one in Cancun (VRBO property #489274, check our great reviews!)

About Humberto

We are the owners of a condo in Cancun which has great reviews (property 489274 here at VRBO) and this condo in Playa del Carmen. We are a family of 5, with 3 girls aged 13, 10 and 7 that enjoy visiting both Cancun and Playa del Carmen as well as all the outstanding places and activities available in this beautiful region.

Humberto purchased this condo in 2015

Why Humberto chose Playa del Carmen

We love Playa del Carmen as it is a change of pace location vs Cancun, with a combination of a calmer environment but also world class dinning, great shopping, a fantastic nightlife, beautiful beaches and lots of activities ... or a perfect quiet place just to relax and unwind. It is up to you.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location. We are in the best neighborhood in Playa del Carmen, within walking distance of beautiful beaches, restaurants and shopping venues. You can have the calmest and most relaxed vacation or a holiday full of activities and adventures.

Great Trip

  • 4 of 5

Oscar, the concierge, was very helpful. Anything we needed he was there. I was always able to contact him and was available. Great place for a family. We were a family of 4, my husband, 13yr old, 9 yr old and myself. Awesome location. Close to the beach and 5th avenue.

The area is under development, condos are being built surrounding the building.

The only down fall was the construction noise since it was right outside our window. They work from Sun - Sun, therefore there was not a day that they didn't work. 5 out of the 7 days we were awake at 7 am. so we woke up before they started to use their power tools at 8 am. This was not a deal breaker for us.

Overall we would definitely stay again.

Clean, comfortable, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Had a good three days in this condo with myself and two teenage kids. The roof top pool was lovely with a good view of the ocean. The condo was closer to downtown Playa than I thought, which was great. Only one block to the north end of Quinta and an easy 15-20 min walk to the south end. I would definitely stay again and the condo could easily accommodate 2-3 more people.

Owner's Response: Cindy, Thank you for staying with us, we are very happy that you had such a good time at Playa and at our condo. We agree with the convenience of our location, close to everything that the downtown area can offer and to the beach, but in not always in the middle of everything. The best of 2 worlds, in our opinion. Also, as you mentioned, the condo is big enough to accommodate large families with comfort. We hope to have you back with us in the near future!

Lovely condo, just as pictured, spacious and airy for 4 people. Both bedrooms with ensuites on opposite sides of the condo. Having the washer and dryer was so convenient, 2 blocks from the quieter end of the beach in PDC. Rooftop infinity pool with brilliant view of ocean, observing the other rooftop pools, ours was the largest pool. The only suggestion would be placing a full length mirror in the entrance way as chicas do like to look at themselves before a night out. New condo construction directly in front and kitty corner, but wasn't really a problem, they start at 8 a.m. Maid service, when needed. Well equipped kitchen. Israel, our condo contact, was very pleasant and willing to help book trips, recommend restaurants etc. Would definitely stay again.

Cheers from Vancouver, Bill and Paula

We hope to have you back with us in the near future. Best Lorena & Humberto

Very accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the condo, had everything you need with one exception. I suggest adding a couple of beach chairs easy to carry to the beach.

Great location, Awesome condo

  • 5 of 5

Studio One Unit 104 was great!! Just as it says....2 blocks from 5th Ave and the beach!! The condo was perfect for my four girlfriends and I for the week! We had plenty of space for all of us! That's right....five women, 2.5 bathrooms! The condo was very neat and clean and provided everything we needed. We walked to 5th Ave every day and enjoyed all the shops and restaurants. The little shop on the corner that's actually in the building was also great for snacks, drinks, and really anything else you might need....toilet paper, laundry detergent, etc! There is a restaurant (forgot the name) at 5th and CTM (46th) that is nice open and has great food! The rooftop pool has an amazing view of the ocean. I wish we would have spent more time up there!

The only real downside was that we couldn't really use the beach close to the condo because it smelled awful!! We asked one of the security guards we saw what the smell was and he told us it was the seaweed, but we didn't see any seaweed and it smelled more like raw sewage. On our third day, two of the bathroom sinks stopped draining, so we contacted the management company and they came to fix them right away. One other issue was the extremely noisy construction directly across the street from the literally across from the patio! That made relaxing during the day or sleeping past 9am very difficult, but I wouldn't let that stop you from renting the condo. On our last day, one of the shades in the living room fell off it's track just by trying to roll it up - hoping that it's an easy fix and I don't get charged for it. We really only rolled the shades up a few times.

Overall, this was a great condo and I would definitely rent it again!!

Owner's Response: Dear Diana, We are very happy that you had such a great time with your girlfriends at our condo. As you know, we are a family of 5, so we totally agree with you regarding how much space the condo offers and the great convenience of having 2.5 bathrooms. We love the location of our condo, and are very happy to hear that your enjoyed it so much. The proximity of shops, restaurants, bars, etc. is great, but the convenience of going back to the condo in a calm neighborhood to “get away from it all” makes for a very balanced holiday. Also, our property manager is always ready to resolve any issue you may have, and, as it was your experience, to do it in a fast way. The beach near the condo is the main beach of Playa del Carmen. The natural movement of the sea sometimes makes it have a bit of seaweed (just as it does not have any for most of the year) from time to time. We have been there many times during different seasons of the year, and, as many of our guests, enjoyed the beach a lot. We hope to have you back with us very soon. You will always have a home waiting for you at Playa. Best, Lorena & Humberto PS No worries about the shade, it was fixed without a problem.
