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.

CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!!

Can't wait to go back!!
  • 5 of 5
This was a graduation trip for both of my daughters, and each of us is very excited to go back next year. Absolutely everything was perfect. The easy access to 5th Avenue was great, we never had a need for a car. We went out on a fishing boat and caught a mahi-mahi and a baracuda, and brought the fish to a local restaurant and they cooked the most amazing meal for us!! We've told lots of friends already and are hoping to coordinate a group trip next year.

Owner's Response: I remember taking my graduation trip to Hawaii when I was a kid and I still have fond memories of this so I hope Lisa and her family will remember this trip for years to come and hopefully make new memories next year in Playa.
Sometimes we find the guys who park their red truck up the street from El Faro coming in with their catch for the day and there is a little restaurant right there that will cook it up for you after it is unloaded from their boat. That's fresh seafood but I haven't caught my own yet but this is on the list of things to do. I have seen some barracuda while snorkeling and with their big teeth and watchful eyes I sometimes wonder if they have any thoughts of dining themselves. Glad you found the condo so well located and a easy to get to your adventures.
Thanks again,
Shawn

RETURNING FROM PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Our family had such a great time at El Faro. We stayed there for a wonderful 8 nights (5/16-5/24). We did not want to leave! 9 days was not long enough! All the reviews about this property are 100% accurate. Plus add in the great weather and we had heaven on earth! The setting is even more beautiful in person. We loved the patio over looked the ocean front. It was so perfect for the kids (2.5 year old and a 9 month old) as well as the adults. The pool and all the facilities were superb. We were so centrally located we could walk to restaurants and other entertainment. We look forward to returning for a future vacation. The condo and the location exceeded our expectations! Thank you, Shawn, for your helpful correspondence and offering to rent this beautiful place.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that Bao along with her young children enjoyed El Faro so much. I am the same way I never want to leave and I always think my stay is not long enough. The condo is on the beach and centrally located which easy to describe but Bao did a nice job describing how beautiful the setting really is which is harder to put into words and capture with photos. That would be great to have you and your family return. Thanks! Shawn

EXCELLENT-COULD NOT ASK FOR BETTER!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed 4/26-5/3 and cannot say how truly wonderful everything was. This was a girls trip and we had a total of 6 people. Shawn was so great to work with. So friendly and prompt responses. The condo was amazing! 30 seconds from the condo to the pool or beach. Everyone that we came across at the resort was friendly and helpful-especially Rene at the front desk. This was a great home away from home the week we were there. Location was perfect-walking distance to everything. The beach was beautiful and all the amenities that were provided in the condo were fantastic and truly more than we expected. Can't wait to return!!

Owner's Response: Its great to hear that the condo worked for Kristina and her girls trip. The condo worked well for a lot of groups that have 6 people so it is nice to hear that their group enjoyed it too. I do try to get back with people quickly and make people feel informed and comfortable throughout the rental process so thanks for pointing this out. That would be great to have you return as I have been having many repeat guests which is very much appreciated. Thanks! Shawn

EVERYTHING YOU COULD ASK FOR IN A VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We traveled here for our children's spring break (they are age 9 and 12). My adult niece and her friend joined us as well. Having never been to Playa, I was very nervous about picking a place to stay. It turned out that we did pick the perfect place!!! The condo is lovely and is very well stocked. We used all the beds + the sofa pullout and everyone was thrilled. We cooked everyday and found everything we needed for that. The best part of the condo, though, is the LOCATION. The views from the balcony were just beautiful. The beach and pool really are just steps away and both were magnificent. We found the staff around the condos very friendly and helpful and we loved exploring 5th avenue and all the surrounding activities. The condo really is ideally situated to take advantage of so much of the area. I can't wait to find a time to return!!!

Owner's Response: So glad to hear the condo worked so well for Karla and her family on their first trip to Playa. The condo is set up to accommodate slightly larger families and it sounded like the extra beds and sofa sleeper worked out well. We agree that the best part is the LOCATION just steps to the pool and beach and the 5th avenue. It was nice to also hear that they found the condo was well stocked and that the staff was friendly as there is a newer front desk staff as well as a new management company looking after the guests and condo so this is nice to hear. I look forward to your stay for your second visit to Playa. Thanks! Shawn

MINNEAPOLIS FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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
