LUXURY CONDO - 14 STEPS TO BEACH, WITH PANORAMIC ROOF VIEW

Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Luxurious, large, 1 bedroom condo (1150 square foot) located 14 steps from the beach, next to the Mahekal Resort (formerly Shangri-La). If you know Playa del Carmen, you know the new, trendy area is the north end. Located at the end of a cobblestone beach access road at the beach, you are located at the best stretch of beach in the entire Riviera Maya.

The views from the infinity pool are 180 degree ocean views. The view is nothing less than breathtaking. There is a huge ground level pool with day beds, many chaise lounge chairs and umbrellas, and a bar area with tables in the shade. The rooftop is stunning with an infinity pool, many lounge areas with couches and over sized chairs in the shade, with tables, huge solarium seating area, and chaise lounge chairs, all with a view that will knock your socks off. The rooftop is for the use of about 20 condos, but is huge and can easily accommodate many more.

The building has a side beach entrance with outdoor showers and easy access to outdoor restrooms, all within 19 short steps to the beach. Step out to the beach, turn right and 2-3 minute walk down the beach and you are in the middle of happening Mimatas Beach Club with great beach side cafés and all the action that is Mamitas. Turn left and less than a minute walk down the beach and you begin a stretch of beach with very few people. This entire area, left and right, is free of rocks and seaweed…it’s just sugar white sand and the most aqua blue water you’ve ever seen.

Inside the condo, you’ll have a spacious unit with two living areas, dining area, granite kitchen, separate bedroom, large bath, walk-in closet, and terrace overlooking the palm trees and cabana roofs of Shangri-La. A wall mounted 42" plasma TV with cable and DVD player as well as a CD stereo add to the amenities inside the condo.

This property was built in 2007 and designed for holiday guests, and has a lobby with a reception desk. When you arrive you won't have to search for the property manager's office and then make your way to a residential condo building. Just walk into the beautiful lobby and collect your programmed key-card. This building is fully staffed much like a hotel, with 24 hour reception, security, and maintenance. You will enjoy a resort setting with flowers, beautiful landscaping, and amenities you just won’t find in a residential condo building.

Pueblito Escondido is an exclusive property for the discerning client seeking modern luxurious comforts without the crowds of a hotel. The property has many common areas that are what you would expect to find in a 5 star resort, at a fraction of the price.

This oversized one bedroom unit at 1150 sq ft is larger than most 2 bedroom condos in Playa del Carmen. What you get in most condos is a tiny living area and super small bedrooms. The open floor plan of this condo includes a living area and a seperate media area with a wall mounted 42” plasma TV with cable and DVD. The dining room has a large dining table with 4 chairs and the kitchen bar has bar stools for casual meals or that evening margarita. The living and dining room combined create one large expanse of windows and sliding doors that overlook a long private terrace the length of the unit. The well appointed master bedroom has a stately four poster bed, a flatscreen television, a large built-in closet crafted from local hardwoods and a stylish bath. No detail has been overlooked in the design and layout of this contemporary condominium.

Condo is jointed owned by Perry & Joanne Crume and Dave & Denise Eckert. The Crumes and the Eckerts live in greater Kansas City.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Location, Location, Location! The best location in Playa and the Rooftop. One step on the rooftop and it was all clear, this is the place!

The location at the beach, the stretch of beach, the fantastic bistros within 2 blocks, the hip beach bars, and the quiet location. Couldn't ask for more.

Where to start! First off the owner perry was fantastic with communication every step of the way answering all my questions about the apartment and the local area as well giving us tips on where to go to eat and what to see.
Now onto the apartment, My partner and I felt like we had walked into a little bit of heaven the apartment is clean and spacious with everything you need for your stay the staff and all very helpful and polite, the rooftop infinity pool was just the icing on the cake it was gorgeous just floating around with a fantastic view of the beach only footsteps from the apartment.
The apartment is located at quieter end of 5th I found which I liked being away from all the nightlife it was very peaceful, I found to walk from the apartment all the way to the other end of 5th it's probably a 40 minute walk. There's lots of restaurants close by and taxis are never far either.
We stayed 10 days and I wish we never left and can't wait to be able to save again this was the highlight of my 6 week travels around America. Thank you again perry

PERFECT ESCAPE

  • 5 of 5
We had a truly wonderful time in this condo. It was a great home-away-from-home. Being that I was 6 months pregnant at the time, it was wonderful to have a clean, cool, and stocked home to return to each day (whether from the beach 10 steps away or a drive down to Tulum). The 5gallon jug of water that they provided was also a huge plus. Highly recommended.

NICE STAY, QUIET & COMFORTABLE

Nice Stay, Quiet & Comfortable
  • 4 of 5
2nd time staying here and again really enjoyed. Most of the time we felt we had the place to ourselves. Infinity pool very unique and memorable. Staff very pleasant. 1st understand this is a condo not a resort so expect. The place is comfortable but a little dated. Water pressure is low but again this is Mexico. WiFi has improved since last stay but is still iffy but remember you are on vacation. Easy access to 5th Ave and all that it has to offer. Quiet and comfortable. Steps from a fantastic beach. Owner extremely easy and a pleasure to work with. If you want high action find a place in town or an all inclusive. If you want to relax and decompress and be in a safe upscale area that you will thoroughly enjoy and remember this is the place. I have no problem booking again. Love this area. Very Euro (Italian). Restaurants some of the best and have very upscale Euro cuisine. Only negative is area becoming very popular and starting to feel the pressures. But I have no problem coming here again and look forward to it.

BIG SPACE

  • 3 of 5
This is a tough one for me. I like to be completely honest to help others that stay here but I don't want to hurt the owners. Well let's start with the positives..the space is nice and big which is great. It is literally a few steps away from the sand. The rooftop is amazing and spacious although it was closed 3 of the days we stayed for maitenance. There was hardly anyone there so no one was really on the rooftop or the other pool. The owners were also very easy to work with. Now the cons...the biggest thing was probably the noise. There was a lot of noise starting around 5am every day coming from all directions. That was tough. The bedroom is very dark. Hardly any light comes in. We had to shut the storm shutters because the curtains didn't fit and people walking by could see. There was hardly any water pressure in the shower and the tempature was up and down. Some bulbs were out in the condo also. They did forget to replace our towels so we had to ask. I know some of these things are not the owners fault. The internet was not good at all. Hardly had service so we went down to starbucks to get it. Overall this place is nice. The great thing about this condo is the proximity to the beach and you are close to the end of 5th avenue which is nice because it's quiet! But just a short walk to everything! Excellent location!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed our great location and spacious condo. Sorry about the noise you encountered during your stay. There was some building maintenance going on during your stay and remodeling of the restaurant downstairs. I am happy to report the new restaurant is open and all is quiet again. One of the benefits of our location is that it is quiet, no noisy bars or discos! We are currently in the process of many upgrades in the condo unit, painting throughout, new bedroom curtains, etc. The building internet provider was recently changed and equipment and boosters are being relocated for optimum performance. Internet is back up in the unit. Additionally a change in our management has taken place so towels and the like are back on schedule. Hope you'll become one of our regular, repeat guests!

GREAT APARTMENT / GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at the Condo for 10 nights during February/ March 2013 - Condo was brilliant, spacious, clean, utilities within the condo were great, everything you would want, there was even chairs for the beach which was a bonus. Location was BRILLIANT right next to a great stretch of beach and at the quieter end of the main street in Playa( the best end!). There were two pools to choose from - we preferred the roof top pool which had fantastic the view across Playa. I would highly recommend this condo and will definitely be back here next time I come to Playa.

VERY PLEASANT STAY WOULD CONSIDER USING AGAIN

  • 4 of 5
Have been to Playa several times. This time we decided to try a condo rental. Did a search on Vacation Rentals and found this unit. Very nice and spacious. The endless pool on the top floor was really nice. Very relaxing at night. Beach just across the street. Beach towels are provided and there were several umbrellas in the closet to use. The facility has made arrangements with Mamamitas (5 min walk on the beach)to use their beach chairs and umbrellas for about 2.50 per person and a 15% discount on food and drinks. Many resorts along the strand offer similar deals. There are several very good restaurants located nearby as well as a small market where you can pick up basics. Bigger markets located nearby and an easy cab ride. This condo is located in a very quiet area that is a very easy walk to 5th Ave were all the action is. Walked back to the condo several times after midnight and felt completely safe. Dealing with Perry was easy and he was very quick to respond to any questions I had before our stay and during. If you have never been to Playa transfers from the airport are easy and reasonable. Cheaper if you make arrangement with one of the transfer companies. Stay away from the cabs. The only negative comment I have regarding this unit is poor internet connection. The DSL was very week and made getting in touch with my office difficult at best. But if you don't require internet and you're looking for a very relaxing stay I would highly recommend this place. We will consider using again when we return.

Owner's Response: Duane,
So glad you enjoyed your stay at the condo. Please do come back and stay with us again, we have lots of repeat guests! Regarding the internet, I've had the wifi signal checked out since and it was reported to be working fine. I double checked with the guests that arrived after your stay and they reported the wifi signal is strong. Sorry, not sure what was going on with the wifi but it's back and running fine now.
Hope to see you soon!
Perry
