  • Romantic, Family Friendly, This Place Has It All

    "We traveled to Playa del Carmen as a family of six, grandparents in our sixties, children in their thirties and grandchildren seven and three. Gillian's beautiful condo accommodated us all perfectly. The condo is visually stunning, three large bedrooms, one on the first floor and two on the second and three full bathrooms. The layout meant that we could be together and still have privacy when we wanted a little alone time. The kitchen had everything we needed and although we loved going out to sample the wonderful food we also enjoyed shopping at the Mega, a short cab ride away, and making our own feasts. The dining room fit us all easily and there were plenty of dishes. There was a blender so we could make frozen drinks which we then took out to the amazing patio that faces a private, bird watchers paradise. Each day we identified new birds and our grandchildren also loved watching for the coatis, small furry animals, that passed through several times a day. The pool was clean and large enough to swim in or just to lay on a tube and soak up the sun. A short walk from the condo brought us to a white sand beach that was perfect for walking, sitting or splashing in the waves. The condo came with beach chairs, umbrella and cooler - everything we could want to enjoy the spectacular view. It was also a short walk into Playa which we did frequently. Gillian was so helpful in answering all our questions before we left and Chris, the condo manager, was helpful while we were in Mexico. Playa itself was a lovely place to visit. It felt very safe, it was easy to get around both on foot and using taxis - we never felt the need for a car. The food was excellent from the cheap and tasty tacos directly across the street from the Mega grocery store to the more upscale options along 5th Avenue, a pedestrian shopping and eating area closed to vehicles for many, many blocks. We've been to a number of places in Mexico but this was our first time in Playa. We will be back."

  • Perfect

    "This property, Casa del Sol-Altavista was amazing. The location was good for walking or driving. We had 10 adults and a 1 year old. The common rooms, kitchen, dining, family, pool table was open and large. Everything we needed was at the property. Plenty of privacy in the bedrooms and all had bathrooms. All was clean and secure. I really recommend this if you have a large group! Only accommodation we had to do was to block the stairs to keep the baby away from them. If I end up back in playa del Carmen, I will look to Erin for rental opportunities, she met us when we arrived and explained everything to u . BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!"

  • Fantastic condo and ideal location!

    "We (family of 5) were very pleased with Gordon's condo. The location was ideal, as it is just across the street from the Reef Resort, where we went just about every day for its great pools and lovely beach. You just need to make sure you get there on the earlier side or you could be turned away if they're at capacity. We're not big fans of all-inclusive holidays, so staying at the condo was perfect for us because we could eat meals at the condo but also take advantage of some of Playa del Carmen's fantastic restaurants. The condo is clean and spacious. We chose it based on the previous glowing reviews and were not disappointed. Claudine, the local manager, is very responsive and when we notified her about a problem with one of the toilets, it was fixed very quickly. From the condo, it was only 45 minutes to Tulum, 45 minutes to Xel Ha and 15 minutes to Xcaret. I'm glad we chose to stay in Playa del Carmen, rather than Cancun. Thanks, Gordon, for a great family holiday!"
