When we were looking for a vacation home in Playa Del Carmen the biggest consideration was to find the property that would make the best vacation rental and we believe we found this with the newly constructed El Faro luxury suites. El Faro is truly unique in that it has the best combination of everything people are looking for in a vacation rental. Being beach front is a great benefit and not only is it on the ocean but its central location in Playa is simply unmatched. Being located on the beach in the heart of Playa at the famous Lighthouse on 10th street is absolutely perfect. You may leave your car behind as you can walk to everything and transportation is excellent. El Faro is situated on a long stretch of the beach so it is like you are tucked away in an oasis right in the heart of all the action. The famous 5th avenue is so close that you probably won't even break a sweat on the short walk up there even on a hot day. But don't worry even if you do start to perspire the ocean is literally only a few steps away waiting to cool you off. Or if you can't make it past the hot sand to the beach you can stop and take a swim in the amazing pool. All joking aside the setting is quite spectacular and you simply won't find another property in Playa that has such a large pool and garden area that is so close to everything and is situated on such a large section of the beach.

The condo itself has one of the best locations in El Faro and has breathtaking unobstructed views of the ocean. There are direct ocean views from the master bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen and large terrace. The condo is new and is tastefully decorated with a little Caribbean fun but overall it is fairly neutral and has a universal appeal. There is a full size kitchen that is completely equipped with everything that you would expect. Everything is new and high end with nice little touches down to the 300 thread count sheets, however, the condo still maintains a relaxed and comfortable feeling. You'll find all of the amenities to make you feel at home such as air conditioning, wireless internet, flat screen TV's or you can just sit outside on the terrace listening to the waves roll onto the shore and watch the people and boats go by as the quiet breeze whispers to you that this is nothing like home at all...

TIPS: You may want to click onto the 'View Calendar' icon on the right hand side of the page of our listing to check on the availability for the dates you want. You may also click onto the 'View Map' above the calendar to see the exact location of El Faro.

We hope you are able to create some great memories in Playa just as we have and we would be thrilled if you were to choose our condo to use as your home when you visit this special place.

Hi, My name is Shawn and I am originally from California and went to school at the University of California San Diego where I first felt the mysterious draw to the ocean. I now live in Vail Colorado where I was drawn over fifteen years ago by an equal passion to the mountains and skiing. My real estate investments and skiing have kept me in Vail, however, I have never been able to shake the fondness for the ocean. Now with a place in Playa I am fortunate to be able to escape to the ocean once in awhile and live in the mountains that I enjoy the rest of the time.

Shawn purchased this condo in 2010

I chose Playa Del Carmen as it is easy to get to and yet still allows me to experience something so much different from my life in the mountains of Vail Colorado. A four hour flight from Denver allows me to put on a T-shirt and shorts and breath in the ocean and experience the good natured people and the character of Playa.

I can only use the condo myself once in awhile so I wanted to find the property that was the most appealing for a vacation rental. Although the property is new I think it will be the most popular property in all of Playa Del Carmen because it is so unique in that it is a high end property with a central beachfront location in the heart of Playa with a large pool area and right on the ocean. I haven't seen another oceanfront property that offers so many benefits in Playa so it was a natural choice.

It is nice to be only steps from the famous 5th avenue to walk to all of the great shops and restaurants. We have found it more relaxing to have everything so close so you are not running around the whole time while on vacation. It is also ideal to be able to walk to Walmart to stock up on groceries and bring something back to the condo to BBQ out on the terrace. We recently put a washer and dryer in the condo so this has enabled us to travel with lighter suitcases.

What a great time we had!!! It is a perfect location and beautiful condo! Everything you
need is there and very comfortable! The view is beautiful! The owner- Shawn is wonderful and great with
details. Follows up right away to any questions- and wants to assure your trip is special!
If you are going to Playa- this is the location- right in the center of town by the lighthouse.
Very important to note a lot of the other places are location on top or near a bar- this
place you will have no issues with loud noise. This is our second trip. P.S. he has water toys which where a bonus to float in the ocean.
Went as a family- very safe

Owner's Response: Its nice to hear that Julie and her family had such a great time. Its also good to hear from another family that felt safe at El Faro traveling with their children. We agree that the location right by the landmark Lighthouse in town and on the beach is the best location in Playa Del Carmen. It was also nice to hear that they had no issue with noise. Thanks for the compliment about getting back to you quickly with any questions as I really try to make sure I respond quickly and make the rental process is clear and smooth.
Thanks again for your stay!

Absolutely PERFECT!

What an absolutely perfect place to stay! You couldn't ask for a better location! The condo was well equipped with quality cookware (if you choose to cook on vacation), the AC worked great, and the beds were very comfortable. The bedrooms were large, and had lots of storage to put your clothes away. The porch is wonderful to sit out on, as you have the ocean breeze, and a great view of the beach and pool area. The very first night there we were greeted by a full moon rising over the ocean, and every night after that the moon was always right above our condo...I loved that!

We felt very safe, as security was always there 24/7, plus you are up on the 2nd floor. The city also felt very safe, as we always saw police patrolling everywhere.

We had a car for the week, and parking was provided in the underground garage. That was also very secure. There is a person at the front desk at all times, too.

The condo was very clean, and housekeeping did a great job! It was nice having a washer & dryer too, plus they provided the laundry detergent!

There is lots to do around there, or fun to just people-watch too. It was fun walking up and down the beach, as there is lots of activity going on. Inside the condo it was very quiet, and no problem with hearing noise when you are trying to sleep.

Wicky's, the bar/restaurant on the property, has excellent food! We ate there several times during our stay.

Shawn is wonderful to work with! He replied to all my emails almost instantly! I had lots of questions, and he was very patient answering all of them. I felt like I was talking to a good friend rather than a total stranger! I would say he provides EXCELLENT customer service!

I would love to go back to this condo again, and I would highly recommend renting from Shawn. He strives to make everything perfect for you! Thank you Shawn!
Owner's Response: Thanks Marcy for this wonderful review that captures the experience and amenities of the condo so well. Thanks also for the nice compliments about being easy to communicate with as I try to respond quickly and it was nice getting to know you a little and trading our snow stories and thoughts of sand and sun in Mexico but I think you had me beat with your winter in Minnesota. With snow falling outside as I write this I can envision sitting on the terrace in shorts and a T-shirt watching all of the beach activity. Thanks so much for your stay and that would be great to have you return to the condo soon.
Thanks!! Shawn

INCREDIBLE! We are coming back next year.

In early 2013, my husband, daughter, son-in-law and I decided that rather than our typical gift giving exchanges during the holidays, anniversaries and birthdays, we would pool our gift cash into an account and take a vacation to a warmer location in the dead of winter. By spring, after much research and reviews, we found Shawn’s condo and booked.

From my first correspondence with Shawn until our arrival at El Faro, Shawn was a breeze to work with – always prompt and attentive in replying to my questions and needs.

Upon our arrival at El Faro, we were greeted and welcomed by Angie and the management staff of Caribbean Beach Properties (CBP). Angie gave us wonderful information about the El Faro property and guided us to our condo, which she gave us a thorough run through of the amenities within the condo and their appropriate use. Angie and her staff made a point of keeping in touch during our visit to make sure that all was well.

The condo itself was even more than we had hoped for - beautiful, clean and well equipped for our week stay. All we had to do was unpack and start our adventure. After unpacking, it was hard to depart from the balcony of the condo because of the amazing ocean views and sounds.

El Faro has an attentive security staff onsite that patrols the property at all times. My family and I felt very secure and safe at all times.

Housekeeping was provided every other day which worked out terrific for us.

We probably enjoyed most of all the ocean views and having a quiet and secure location away from the activities on 5th Avenue, especially the sunrise views at 6:00 a.m. We definitely participated in the activities on 5th Avenue, but were able to easily stroll back to the condo within a few blocks. Our week stay was perfect and relaxing … but, we need to experience it again and will be back next year.

PS: I stalled my review to make sure that we secured our visit for next year.

Owner's Response: I am glad that Deb and her family were able to stay at the condo and enjoyed a little reprieve from the cold Minnesota weather that I have been hearing about this winter. Deb painted an excellent summary of what I too enjoy most about the condo. Being right in town to enjoy everything that 5th avenue has but also feeling like you have a little hide away right on the ocean is a great combination and more than anything the sunrise overlooking the ocean from the terrace. I am also glad to hear that they felt very safe as I have had guests that ask about this and it is nice to hear this input from another family. It was also great to hear that Angie and my new management company Caribbean Beach Properties made them feel welcome as they seem to have a real passion for making El Faro a great destination. Deb has already booked her trip for next year during the winter that has been booking solid so shes in and this is wonderful to have so many guests return each year. Thanks! Shawn

We've just returned from our stay at the El Faro condo in Playa del Carmen and had a great time! The condo is absolutely beautiful and had everything we needed for a great, relaxing vacation. It is conveniently situated a few steps from the beach and pool, and a short walk from all the activity that Playa has to offer; both shopping and wonderful beach bars. Wal-Mart was a walkable distance for us replenish our groceries and cervezas and it is a short walk to catch the ferry over to Cozumel, where we took in an afternoon of snorkeling.

We stayed with another couple and the condo was large enough to comfortably accommodate all of us, without us ever feeling that we were on top of each other.

The view from the balcony was incredible and we greeted the day there many mornings!

Shawn was very helpful through the entire process and made renting his condo very easy.

We will definitely be visiting Playa again in the future and would be delighted to have a repeat stay at Residente El Faro!

Thanks, Shawn!!

Owner's Response: Location, Location, Location sums it up like Robin said.

I remember going to Playa with my mom in 2006 and remember standing in the location of where El Faro would be built and signing a purchase contract before we went back home because the location seemed better than anything else we saw. I think El Faro turned out nicer than I even expected and it still has that amazing ocean view that got me hooked and now you can enjoy this from the condo. It still has that tropical paradise feel and now that it has been finished it is nice to see what was once just a vision. Its that central location to things like 5th Avenue and the big box grocery stores and the ferry to Cozumel and of course having the beach just being a few steps away that make El Faro what it is now and what it has always been.
Hope to have you back again soon!

El Faro****The Best view and rental property for your vacation!!

First, I would like to thank Shawn for all his attention and for making this trip the best vacation I have ever had at El Faro. El faro is a beautiful upscale condominium building, where you can enjoy some time alone, with family or partner. Shawn made everything seem so easy from communicating via phone and emails. The condo has beautiful views to the beach and the attention given by its staff it felt like being at a first class hotel/condo but on an affordable budget. The condo has everything you need, from kitchen utensils to beach towels, it felt like being home. We got greeted by the new Caribbean Beach Properties (CBP) which is the new management company overseeing the condo at El Faro. They made sure we felt comfortable, safe and welcome. They came and clean the condo every other day and even made animals made out of the towels which I thought that was the nicest touch. There is security 24/7 not because of is a bad place but because they want everything in order and just in case anything is needed. The location of EL Faro is spectacular is close to everything but far enough that you have plenty of privacy. I would recommend Shawn and his condo at El Faro at any time; you will have the most amazing vacation at Playa de Carmen and will not regret renting his beautiful condo.

Owner's Response: It's wonderful to hear that Zaira had her best vacation ever and found the condo comfortable and well equipped with everything they needed. It was also nice to hear that the new management company was so attentive and made them feel at home. I completely agree that El Faro is so special because it is so close to everything in town yet you still have privacy and a large setting right on the ocean. Thanks for your stay. Shawn
