EVERYTHING WE WANTED AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were fortunate enough to spend 2 weeks in your charming penthouse earlier this month (Feb) and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay.

From the moment we walked thru your gate we felt welcome as Victor was there with a warm smile and a handshake. We had done an all-inclusive trip to Playa before but decided to try a vacation rental this time. As this was our first time in a rental, we weren't exactly sure what to expect but it was everything we wanted and more. The penthouse is exactly as your description and photos show. The outdoor lounge is really as big as you think it is... great for having a drink after a day in the sun or BBQing some fresh seafood or just relaxing. The king-size be is extremely comfy, the place is clean and the air-conditioning works great.

Even though we shared stairs with Helene and Victor (who are both very gracious hosts) we felt that our privacy was always respected and we often forgot that there were people below us.

The penthouse is in a fabulous location, a short 5 min walk with get you to 5th Ave. or the grocery store and an 8-10 min walk will get you to the beach, Hwy 307 for a colectivo or a great restauraunt for drinks and/or dinner (El Fogon is our recommendation). Never did we not feel safe while walking, and, we walked at all hours of the day and night.

If you're looking for somewhere to relax, enjoy some time with your significant other and be close but not too close to the action all while getting great value, then this is the place for you. If you want to be right in the thick of things and to party like a rockstar, this is not the place for you.

We would love to make a return visit and have been telling anyone who will listen about our great find. We can't thank Helene and Victor enough for our 2 WONDERFUL weeks vacation!

We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

THE PENTHOUSE WAS PERFECT FOR US!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the Penthouse was wonderful! Victor and Helene AWESOME -- they gave us great information about the area and restaurants and provided GREAT customer service. We absolutely loved the outdoor area of the Penthouse -- we ate our meals outside, and also grilled one evening. The small pool wasn't heated, but felt great after a hot day on the beach. We love, love to walk everywhere, so this Penthouse was perfect for us. It was about a 7 minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes to 5th Avenue. There was a large grocery store about a block away which had everything we needed. WalMart was also within walking distance. The kitchen had everything we needed, and was very clean. The bed was EXTREMELY comfortable. We kept the air on during the night in the bedroom which blocked out any noise from the neighborhood. It was great staying in a neighborhood -- we really got the feel of staying in Playa del Carmen vs. staying in a hotel. The outdoor area is VERY private . . no one in the surrounding homes can see you in the pool. ? The gated community was great - we never once felt unsafe walking anywhere around in Playa del Carmen. We took the ADO bus from the Cancun airport which was extremely easy, and took a taxi to the rental. (Going back, we walked back to the ADO station in Playa del Carmen to take the bus to the airport, since we love walking.) We visited many great restaurants in the area, and took the Collectivo vans down the coast to Akumal and Tulum. There is so much to do in this area -- we are talking about going back next spring and at the Penthouse again. I would highly recommend the Penthouse. I can't emphasize enough how helpful and kind Victor and Helene were during our stay. Thank you very much!!! We will be back!!

RELAXING STAY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from a truly relaxing vacation at this cute little condo. The owners, Victor and Helene, were wonderful to work with and answer any questions. Their two children were adorable. It was very private and quiet. We enjoyed walking to the beach in the mornings and down 5th Ave. in the evenings. Close to grocery stores which made it very handy. We enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings and watching the stars on the rooftop patio. We also ate all meals outside on the outside dining table. After sitting in the sun the dipping pool was a great way to cool off. Transfers from the Cancun Airport were easy, on time, and convenient. Helene suggested a company and we could not have been more pleased. Overall, the vacation was wonderful and just what we needed. We are already talking about returning for a longer time next winter!

VICTOR AND HELEN -- THE BEST PART OF OUR VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I hate staying on resorts, but enjoy a good tropical vacation with the best of both worlds. This PH in Playa is exactly that. First off, the complex is gated and safe, but you are around locals. Walk out of the complex and go right, and you find all the local necessities -- small taco places, grocery stores, even a cute little open market on the corner of 30th. Go to the left and you have the trendy restaurants, souvenir shopping, and of course THE BEACH. The place was easy to find, and Victor and Helen were amazingly accommodating. We had a few personal issues and needed to use their phone and they never even hesitated. Their children are absolutely adorable and soooo polite it's refreshing. We've already told them we plan on coming back soon and staying with them. We've also already let our friends know if they plan a trip to Playa, to go through Helen and Victor.

Thank you so much for an amazing vacation !

LOVELY PLACE TO STAY

  • 4 of 5
Our first time to PDC was most enjoyable. APARTMENT, THE GOOD STUFF--Victor and Helene were great Landlords, very helpful, responsive and friendly. The apartment is charming and is a steal at these rates, lots of storage and a small but functional kitchen work area, the bedroom is large and a good sized bathroom, we used the AC a couple of times and it cooled the apartment off perfectly. The outdoor area is FABULOUS and very private, we would have died with out the pool. The walk to 5th avenue and the beach is certainly manageable and safe night or day, and just a 3 dollar cab ride if you don't want the walk. Two grocery stores within 200 yards, and 2 convenience stores. the main transit route is a block from the gates and only 5 pesos each gets you to Mega or Wal-Mart. Lots of authentic Mexican restaurants within a block or 2. THE STUFF WE WISHED WAS BETTER--We were starving for CNN, the TV does not offer English channels, we did not use the BBQ as it was charcoal, we spoiled North Americans are hooked on propane, the 3 flights of stairs were manageable except when we were moving our over-packed luggage.

Thanks Victor and Helene for an enjoyable holday

Bob and Brandy

PS, how is the tile work coming?

TRULY OUR HOMEAWAY FROM HOME

  • 4 of 5
Staying at this comfortable penthouse was a wonderful experience. It is located in a quiet, safe, residential neighborhood. Lot's of dog lovers throughout Tohoku Interior.

This apt is a few blocks from a laundry and grocery store. It is a 10 minute walk to 5th Ave, and another 5 minutes to the beach. It is bright, clean, large and was stocked with most needed items. The description and photos are very accurate.

Victor and Helene were gracious and helpful hosts, who had the apt completely prepared and ready for our stay. We appreciated the high level of customer service provided from this lovely couple. I'd do business with them anyday.

The bedroom is large and comfortable with plenty of storage, and the bed is comfortable too. I agree with other reviewers that the best part of this penthouse is the outside space. There is a large covered sitting area, which is great for entertaining. The small dining area with grill is nice. The pool is more like a large soaking tub, and perfect for both of us to sit in and cool off.

This 3rd floor penthouse apt is completely private! The stairs to the 3rd floor are well lighted. We would definitely stay here again!
