About Karl Grebe
I am Canadian. I grew up in Toronto. I lived in Toronto my whole life, until I traveled to Acapulco in 2008. After that trip, I fell in love with my wife and with Mexico. In 2009, I moved to Acapulco, but I soon learned that there were more opportunities in Playa del Carmen. I left the Pacific Coast, to go to the Atlantic Coast. By profession, I am an Robot Programmer and was working in the Automation Field when the economic collapse occurred in 2009. I decided that it was time to buy a Spanish Dictionary and make the big move...I haven't looked back since. I'm the type of person that enjoys different experiences and cultures. I like to travel and to do quality work. I like a challenge and a little adventure and one of my passions is renovating homes. I enjoy upgrading interiors and sharing beautiful spaces in this beach side city with others from around the world. I want to make your stay as perfect as possible. Please explore the rest of this ad and write to me with any questions or comments that you may have. I hope to speak with you soon.

Playa Del Carmen
Karl is a great host. My girlfriend and myself stayed at this apartment for 10 days and had a wonderful experience. Karl is very personable and the apartment is conveniently located for everything you would want to do in Playa Del Carmen.
The photos of the apartment were just as it looked when we checked in.
Karl went above and beyond by picking us up at the bus depot and touring us around Playa to help us get our bearings.
The building is quiet and the pool was fantastic,there are only 8 apartments in this building, so we had the pool to ourselves most of the time. The lounger beds at the pool were very comfortable and luxurious, we would definitely stay with Karl again and recommend his rental with no reservations.
The security was also very well done, with a security guard downstairs all night long and a maintenance man in the building or at the front desk during the day also the door to the building was locked this made us feel very secure no worries.
Thank you again Karl for making our stay so pleasurable.
Great Condo In The Perfect Location!
We stayed for a week at Karl's wonderful condo. Upon arrival, not only did he show us around the apartment, but drove us around the neighborhood and pointed out highlights. It made getting around even easier! One block off the start (and the best part) of 5th Ave. and 2 blocks from the beach and some nice beach clubs, this condo had everything we needed. Breakfast places, pizza, convenience stores, pharmacies, and TONS of great restaurants were all just a few minutes walk away. And the rooftop pool was nice for spending a day when we didn't feel like going anywhere. The condo is about 45 minutes south of Cancun airport and 45 minutes north of Tulum, and an easy drive to everything in between. There is even a Wal-Mart a few blocks away, in case you need to pick up larger essentials (and believe me when I tell you to get some rolls, breads, and croissants from the Wal-mart bakery! You won't be disappointed!!). Will definitely keep this on our list of places to visit and stay at again! He even helped us out when our flights were postponed due to a storm back home. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thanks, Karl!
Fantastic all around!
We are so pleased with the way Karl was attentive to our calls and questions. From the first day that we got there Karl offered to pick us up in Cancun airport and showed us around playa. The condo in itself is great! To the beds, air conditioning and all it offers it's sure worth going back. The pool upstairs is beautiful! my family and I felt very secured for our first time in playa Carmen. Karl offered to take us to xcaret and back as well as to Cancun in our last day there. A true great vacation!!! Was a pleasure of staying there and recommending it to my friends.
Clean, modern,private,perfect location,excelent service, awesome!
Awesome condo! Perfectly located a block from the beach and walking distance to best restaurants in Playa dc. I highly reccommend this CLEAN, quiet, private,modern condo ! I will be back!!!!
Will consider a hotel next time
First impression was positive, the apartment has all the amenities you can find in a hotel including WIFI and cable TV. Evrything looked as pictured. However after a few days we didn't fully enjoy ourselves as there are several buildings on construction around the block and you will hear the knocking from workers and noise from the machines through most part of the day including weekends.. This is at no fault to the owner. Beds were ok but pillows are terrible and small. There were some other hiccups with drainage that Karl kindly attempted to fix. The apartment is on quiet neighborhood, and in my opinion Playa del Carmen is better location than crowded Cancun.
Hello, Mike. Thank you for taking the time to leave me a review. I appreciate your compliments on my home. I do my best to keep it at a high standard. I'm sorry that you were bothered by the buildings that they are finishing down the street. Playa del Carmen is in such high demand that construction crews are working like crazy to get these projects finished by January 2017. Even in a hotel, you may still experience some development nearby. This zone is booming with tourists like yourself. As for the pillows, I wish that you had spoken to me about them while you were here, instead of after you left. I have several grades of pillows in the home. Pillows, like many other things, are an item of preference. Some people complain about pillows being to hard and others complain that they are too soft. I could have had you look in the overhead closet and select another pillow. Either way, I'm pleased that you enjoyed your stay and I hope that you will consider renting through this website in the future. Take care, Mike.
Great condo and perfect location
My wife and I stayed in Karl's condo for 6 weeks and enjoyed every minute in this modern condo that was just a half block from 5th ave and 3 or 4 blocks from the beach. The roof top pool was amazing with great views and very clean, We bought a small cooler and would take a few drinks up the elevator to the roof top and listen to music while soaking up the sun and swim.
Karl was quick to respond when we needed water or had a question. We used WhatsApp to message him and he would respond right away. The water pump burnt out one day and Karl offered to take us too another condo so we could shower but he had a new bigger and better pump install the next morning so no problem. This was a very quite place even from the deck we couldn't here much at all.
Karl picked us up at the airport , we got laundry service once a week for free and water delivered free (by Karl). Had maid service every sunday for free. The tv had Netflix and youtube which was a very nice bonus. There was a night security guard down at the front door every night.
We walked the full length of 5th ave many times and walked the beach from our condo down too the Cozumel ferry dock many times, so many great bars, restaurants and shops to check out.
We absolutely loved our time in PDC and would recommend this condo to everyone. We will be back Karl.
Thanks for everything Karl!!
Hello, Mark. Thank you very much for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have yourself and your wife stay in my home.
