About Cryss

My husband and I have been living in Playa del Carmen for over 12 years. I grew up in Switzerland and my husband is Mexican. We live right behind the property and work from home.

We are both very outgoing and like to meet new people, we both loves animals and welcome cats and dogs:-)

Why Cryss chose Playa del Carmen

We live right behind the property, we lived in this area for 8 years and love that it's close to everything even in walking distance. We made a beautiful living for our guests and long term tenants. The pool is beautiful and used by our people every day.

What makes this apartment unique

Getting into the complex it feels like home and it's safe. The houses are built in different shapes to protect from the hot sun and the wind flow is strong. Lots of green area and very nice pool.

Incredible place to stay in Playa del Carmen - SO accommodating!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I absolutely LOVED our stay at this condo in Playa del Carmen. Lots of positives to share, only a few (mostly inconsequential) negatives:

Negatives: Cryss mentions this on the listing, but I didn't notice it in advance. The renter is responsible for the Paypal fees, and Paypal is the only way to pay. Not a too big of a deal, but if you're especially budget conscious, factor that fee into your budget for this place. The other negative is location - it's definitely in a pretty residential area, not near to any of the touristy stuff. If you're willing to walk, it's only a 15-20 minute walk, so this wasn't a big deal for us. And you can always grab a taxi if you need to. The immediately surrounding area seemed a little unsafe - nothing to make us (two young women, one young guy) too uncomfortable, but we intentionally didn't walk around at night alone. The condo complex itself has really really good security, so we always felt very safe within the walls of the complex.

Positives: The space is larger than I anticipated - the "storage room" that the listing refers to is really an extra bedroom - it has a twin size bed in there! That was awesome. Cryss is UNBELIEVABLY accommodating and SO NICE. One member of our party needed to check in early and mistakenly called Cryss at 6am - and she was so kind about the miscommunication, and even allowed really early check-in. They had excellent recommendations for things to do and places to go! It was really nice to know that she was available for anything we needed - any questions or anything, she was there. The place itself is REALLY well stocked - plenty of fresh water (big deal!), paper products (paper towels, coffee filters, toilet paper), beach towels, and other stuff (shampoo, conditioner, laundry detergent, and so on). We had everything we needed and MORE. The wifi worked great, which can be rare in vacation rentals. The private rooftop terrace is awesome - there's even a light up there, so we had dinner up there after dark one evening and that was really charming. The pool is great (small, but awesome), and they provide cushions for the pool chairs. Really, she's thought of everything!

Overall, we were incredibly comfortable in this space. For the price, you cannot beat this location in Playa del Carmen. It's no all-inclusive, but we still had a luxurious vacation! I would definitely recommend it and would stay there again!

Wonderful Stay and Lovely Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a very pleasant stay in Playa Del Carmen at the apartment of Cryss Spani. We stayed for six nights - two adults and one 5-year old child. The additional room was perfect for our son, and gave us extra space not having to use the fold out sofa in the living room. The apartment is very well equipped with everything needed for the stay, including a washing machine, and plenty of fresh water to drink (a big plus!). Cryss was very lovely and helpful in every way. She had great advice on everything from local restaurants to sightseeing around the area. The immediate area seemed a little rough, but was quiet and easy to get to the beach and restaurants. For runners, I ran several times from the apartment, and found a decent route by heading to the water and then North (left) on 5th. You can go as far as you want, and the traffic is minimal (and there are lots of other runners there). Cryss commented that air conditioning was not included (which would have been a deal-breaker for us), but we were able to use it, so all was well. May want to check with her to see what her policy is at this point. Cryss, thank you again for a great stay - best of luck to you! Lara & Alberto

Felt like our second home!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fabulous place, the owner is so kind and helpful- our family made a new friend for life. She made us feel so welcome, gave us great advice on places to eat and things to do. Apt is very close to playa del carmens famous Fifth avenue, the beach and central to the many parks (xel ha for example) and also close to the ferry for Cozumel. The apartment itself is roomy, beautifully decorated and we absolutely loved using the top floor patio and the pool. Our family will definitely be returning to stay here and I will be recommending it to all my freinds.. Thank you so much for making our vacation even more special!
