About Sigurd Hoberg

We are a family living in Norway. I am a computer professional and my wife is a designer/decorator. 3 kids in school. We love the area and the property and we are trying to spend some time in Playa Del Carmen every year.

Sigurd Hoberg purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Sigurd Hoberg chose Gonzalo Guerrero

The best thing about this property is the very spacious outdoor lounge garden and pool areas. The second floor of the condo can be opened up completely in both ends and there will be a beautiful breeze flowing through. The roof terrace is the best place to be, but the whole penthouse is great for a big group or a family, perfect for staying together but there are also plenty of areas outside and inside where one can be more private.

What makes this apartment unique

First street is a very quiet hotel street, plus our condo is located in the opposite part of the complex, closest to the sea. Yet fifth avenue is just 50 meters away. Going north on fifth, you only need to walk maybe 50 meters more and you are in the Little Italy part of fifth avenue. We chose to buy this condo because we believe this is the most perfect location in Playa :-)

Beautiful and Confortable apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment with and amazing view. It is very confortable and spacious; we were a group of eight adults, and it was perfect for all of us. The building is beautiful with a gorgeous pool and a great gym. The location couldn't be better because the beach is just 20 meters away and Playa del Carmen's action it is just 1 block away. We have stayed in this apartment twice... that says it all. The apartment is very clean. They provide a very good service, great attention, and a great advice about restaurants and places to visit. Thanks!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This had to be one of the best places we've stayed at in Playa. The penthouse was spacious and actually even better in person than what the photos looked like. Sigurd was extremely responsive to questions we had prior to our arrival and the entire trip experience was incredible. We will definitely be staying at Sigurd's penthouse on our next trip.

Yucatan, Mexico

The perfect setting for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time my entire family (my parents, my sister and her husband and their two kids age 8 and 5) have been on vacation together in Mexico, and the Magia penthouse couldn't have been more ideal! It offers plenty of space, both indoors and outdoors, for everyone to spread out and relax, and even with eight people, we never felt crowded or cramped. The kids loved the pools, and although the beach access right in front of the complex isn't ideal (there are boats moored there and lots of sandbags), there are several very nice beaches with better access just a few minutes walk away. The flat is well-located for restaurants and cafes, too; I was worried about my dad's ability to get around, since walking isn't as easy for him as it once was, but there are many excellent restaurants close by, and he never felt too taxed.

A couple of things that could be pointed out: if you are a large group and you're going to make use of all of the bedrooms, it's worth noting that there is very little privacy for whomever takes the upstairs bedrooms (there are two beds upstairs; one is in a room with a door, the other is an open loft-like space, and they share a bathroom with a frosted glass wall). It didn't matter much to us, but I imagine it could be a problem for travelers who prefer private spaces. Also, I was a bit concerned about the kids going up and down the concrete staircase without a handrail, but their parents instilled a healthy amount of caution in them in advance, and they were very careful and just fine!

Those minor details aside, it was a perfect week in Playa. Thanks so much to Sigurd and Laura (the wonderful property manager) for making our stay such a pleasure! We will definitely be back again!

A great apartemnts in a Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was fantastic. We were two families and it was perfect as the apartment was in 2 floors. Containing everything you need. Great outdoor space with pools. Close to fantastic beach and is very central to everything you need in Playa del carmen. Have you hired a Car, you safely park in the basement. The area felt safe. We had a great stay here and can really recommend this apartment. Fantastic
