|Minimum Stay||2 - 7 nights|
This is a spacious 2 bedroom penthouse condo in the heart of the desirable new 'Little Italy' section of Playa Del Carmen.
The rooftop terrace has a jacuzzi and a view of the ocean. It's located on the popular 5th avenue promenade where all the restaurants and shops are located, only 2 blocks from the beach.
All marble floors, and custom made hardwood furniture make it a beautiful environment to spend time in. Wirless internet is included.
smoking is permitted outdoors only.
We have only recently listed our property on VRBO, so we have no comments in the guest book yet. If you would like some referrals from people who have stayed in our property I would be happy to furnish you with some.
Just send me an e-mail.
We stayed here in March 2015, and loved every minute of it. I'll start by saying the picture of this place don't really do it justice. The rooms are spacious, the place is beautiful and there's everything you could need (except laundry), including blenders, a coffee maker, lots of dishes, a tonne of towels, etc. The location is stellar...it's right on 5th near the end of the strip in an area that sees some action, but is generally quiet by 12-1am. The AC works very well in all 3 rooms with separate controls and the two bathrooms were well cared for. Don't forget it has a huge balcony AND a rooftop terrace with whirlpool. The only downside - its a 3rd floor walk-up...not a big deal, but it feels worse after a draining day of doing nothing on the beach (which is at most a 6 minute walk away). I'll round this out by saying - Yes I would recommend this place.
Also - the local property managers were friendly and very helpful!!!
We recently spent 16 nights at this condo and I have to say it was great! The location is amazing, lots of people watching from the balcony if that's your thing, we had nightly mariachi performances, fire twirlers, all kinds of interesting things going on. The breeze on the balcony and roof top terrace are a nice bonus too!
The condo is well equipped in the kitchen, you will find all pots, dishes, glassware and utensils you could need. The condo is very clean and well stocked with towels and sheets.
The roof top terrace is a nice addition for those afternoons where you don't want to head to the beach or anywhere, fill the tub and use it as a soaking pool! Sit in the sun, catch a few rays, dunk in the tub and repeat till warmed!
My one caviat would be the stairs, if you are handicapped or have issues with stairs, sadly this condo probably would not work for you as there are many stairs. But if you can do stairs then by all means rent this place! It is modern, has a great property manager, Jorge and the owners were very helpful all through the process of renting!
We will be back and will recommend to friends and family as well!
We loved the location of this condo. It is a short walk to Mamitas beach area and even closer to Chez Celine bakery/restaurant where warm baguettes can be purchased for breakfast! Communicating with the owner Shayne was prompt and straightforward. The property manager in Playa was also in contact with us by email and text, and was waiting at the condo when we arrived.
The photos on the VRBO webpage gave a very accurate depiction of the condo (except all the recent construction has sadly blocked the view of the ocean from the rooftop). The bedrooms are large and comfortable. There was lots of hot water for showers. There was bottled water, toilet paper, etc to start off our vacation so no need to rush off to the store the first day. There were lots of towels including beach towels which was terrific as the condo does not have a washer/dryer. (Laundromats are plentiful if we had needed to do laundry.) The condo was also stocked with items such as sandwich bags, garbage bags, coffee filters etc. There were three separate air conditioning units so each bedroom and the kitchen/living space is separately controlled. We rarely used the kitchen/living room air conditioner as the condo has high ceilings and was generally a nice temperature. The master bedroom had patio doors opening onto the balcony, but the sounds from 5th Avenue and the air conditioners from nearby roofs, made it a bit noisy to fall asleep with them open.
We did not do much cooking as we wanted to enjoy the many restaurants in town. We did make breakfasts and the kitchen was more than adequate for that. The refrigerator was large and worked very well and was well used by us! A larger television, to watch a few of the many Mexican soccer matches that were televised would have been nice, but not a significant issue for us.
Our favorite part of the condo was the balcony where we sat and had a glass of wine in the evenings – or stood to do some people watching below us on 5th Avenue. Hopefully this condo will be available the next time we come to Playa as we would certainly like to stay there again!
I have rented this condo several times over the past couple years and I keep coming back. It is a nice modern unit with everything you need. Being up on the 3rd & 4th floors gives it constant access to the tranquil Playa breeze coming off the ocean. If you've spent time in Playa de Carmen, you know how seductive that breeze is - especially in the warmer months. On lower floors, that it gets blocked by the buildings and trees. Having a fresh margarita while watching the sunset from the patio or rooftop deck are a highlight of my day. But, for me, the best thing about this unit is location, location, location. I love being right on 5th Street - but not just anywhere on 5th Street. Being on the north end of 5th is absolutely perfect. You feel completely connected to the sexy / chic energy of Playa without being bothered by it! If you've ever stayed further to the south and laid awake all night listening to the thumping bass of the night clubs and the loud-talking foot traffic, you know what I am saying. Down here at 30th, you are surrounded by fantastic restaurants, bars, coffee houses, shops - and by 12am, there is still great liveliness, but it's beautifully quiet. A+
The owner has been great to work with and there is a local property manager to call if you need something. I was really lucky to stumble on this place when I did and I hope to be able to return for years to come!
It's shameful that I'm just now writing a review, but better late than never! My husband and I, with our best frriends, first stayed there in March 2009. We fell in love with this condo and agreed we'd always rent it again when we returned to Playa. We just came back from Playa a couple of weeks ago (March 2011) and once again stayed here. The condo is very well kept, it has an excellent location, and the staff and maintenance are excellent. We had a couple of minor maintenance issues when we first arrived and Jorge responded swiftly and had it resolved as fast as possible, which we really appreciated.
Here are my favorite things about staying here:
o The beach is very close, Mamita's beach club is only about a 5 minute walk away
o It's located right on 5th ave and it's on the better, less touristy end of 5th ave (in my opinion, 5th and 30th).
o The BEST mojito in Mexico is located right downstairs. It used to be called 'Quinta' but now it's called something else (starts with an R), but still the same owners, same mojito.
o The BEST cuban restaurant is just a couple of blocks away - La Bodeguita del Medio
o If you scuba dive, this condo is perfect with its rooftop patio and tub, we were able to rinse all of our equipment off and leave it on the roof to dry out.
o Ana and Jorge manage the property and are very responsive, if you have any issues they will be addressed right away
o Shayne is the owner and while we've never met her in person, she is very friendly and knowledgeable, and all of our email communication has felt as if I were dealing with a friend.
Overall, I highly recommend her condo and guranatee you'll have a great time! I know we'll definitely be back.
