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.

Fantastic all around!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Will consider a hotel next time

  • 3 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Great condo !

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I shared this condo and had a great two weeks.

Everything looks exactly as the pictures! Beds were not too hard and I got a good nights sleep. Very quiet neighbours which was great.

The only suggestion I would make and is quite an easy fix. Kitchen towels would be great instead of a bathroom towel and a couple of larger bowls ( for scrambled eggs or salads really are needed.

Karl was very informative, pleasant and just plain awesome!! He was a great landlord !

If we planned to go somewhere and had to catch a collectivo he even offered to drop us off so we didn't have to take a bus.

Any small thing that did occur Karl was quick to solve it.

I would definitely recommend staying at this condo !

Its right off of 5th Avenue yet the street is very safe and quiet. Your a couple of blocks and your at the beach.

Ps....a couple of light chairs for the beach would be a great addition ...as we had nothing to sit on once there.

I would definitely stay here again !

Thanks Karl !

Donna

Owner's Response: Thank you for leaving this great review, Donna. It was a pleasure to meet yourself and your friend and have you stay in my vacation home. I am always happy when my guest enjoy their vacation to the fullest. I appreciate all your suggestions for those easy fixes for the kitchen and the beach. I will take care of them very soon. The next time you crave Coco Beach, I'd be happy to accommodate the both of you again, with beach chairs and all. Take care, Donna.

Wonderful host, nice condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this condo for one week with our two sons. This was our first visit to PDC and we really liked the location. Karl was very quick to respond to our questions both before and during our stay. He took us on a great tour of the town and gave us some helpful tips. We did experience some problems with noise due to an event down the street our first night, a music festival at the beach and some quirks in the new building. However, we would still recommend this condo. Thanks again, Karl!!
