Overview

Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Spacious 1BR 1BA Condo, Private Patio, Lush Garden+Pool Bird Sanctuary

Mi Casa es su Casa! This lovely home away from home receives regular refurbishing. If your vacation plans include staying near the fine sandy beaches of the Mexican Caribbean this is the place for you. Playa del Carmen’s best beaches are just out the front door!

This residence is one of twelve units in the Italian designed “La Coccinella” complex. Look out from the living room into the lush garden courtyard and try to decide if you want a refreshing dip in the pool or head down to Mamita’s or others. If you choose a beach club, fifty pesos (approx.$5.usd) will provide you with a chaise, a shady palapa and prompt, friendly service. Enjoy the near-by turquoise waters of ‘El Caribe’.

La Coccinella is nestled in what locals refer to as Quinta Nueva or ‘new 5th Avenue’. Just off of Avenida 5th at Calle 28th you will be staying in one of the most tastefully built areas of this popular Yucatan destination.

Since the condo is situated around the corner from restaurants, shops, Internet cafes, beach clubs and more - everything you need is within walking distance.

Use the privacy and convenience of this lovingly furnished retreat as a cool sanctuary between excursions and outings. Relax and enjoy refreshments on your own secluded patio. Or kick back and enjoy a DVD before you set off for your next adventure.

This is truly a one-of-a-kind destination. Playa (as referred to by locals) was once a tiny fishing village. Fortunately, it developed into a quaint paradise, shying away from high rise development. It has grown into a beautifully designed ‘walking friendly’ beach town.

Besides Spanish and English you will hear languages from around the world. The international mix of Playa locals, business owners and tourists enhances its’ uniqueness.

Fly into Cancun International Airport and take a car, bus, taxi or shuttle 45 minutes south to Playa del Carmen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Antoinette

Just wanted to thank you for all of your help. We enjoyed Playa very much, & it was nice that our friends were in the suite next to us.

We loved 5th Ave., every meal we had out was wonderful, no complaints about anything. Was nice to be able to walk to everything we needed.

Thank you again, we will recommend your place to friends.

a slice of home

  • 5 of 5
We give our experience 5 stars and plan on going back as soon as possible.

The apartment had everything needed for our week stay in July 09. The location is amazing - so close to everything!! My mom, my 4 year old and I had the most memorable week. The layout being on the ground floor had easy access to the pool - just opened our door :) The restaurants, internet cafes and beach were all just minutes away. The property was clean and we were welcomed by the apt. manager. All the appliances worked - the cable TV was great for my little one. I highly recommend the apartment for family with a child, singles, and couples. In regards to customer service, all I can say Antoinette was very accommodating and I look forward to visiting her apartment very soon.

Fabulous, Authentic

  • 5 of 5
First let me say I had the privilege of meeting Miss A and spending some time with her during my 2 week visit. She is the best! perceptive, quick to respond, accommodating and positive. The apartment was authentic, with colorful tile work, a fabulous courtyard, garden and pool that was wonderfully lit at night. The apartment was very clean and had everything I needed or was just a few steps away; for out of town excursions, Tulum, Akumal and Valladolid, America Car rental was great and right out the door on Calle 28; XOXO convenience store -10th Ave at Calle 26; indoor English ATM - Hacienda Paradise 10th Ave at Calle 22; fresh fruits & veges, homemade yogurts and the best macaroon in the world - DAC market N of Constituyentes at 30th Ave. On Calle 26, between 5th and 10th there is a great health food store, laundry service and yoga studio; and of course the beautiful Mamita's Beach just one block away. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at La Coccinella, loved the view through those Italian arched doors and hope to visit again.

A land of peace in a very-well located place

  • 5 of 5
First, let me thank Antoinette and her team, for being so efficient ! I booked at very last minute (3 days prior). Antoinette was kind enough to answer very quickly to my first email so that I was able to book my plane tickets that were almost all sold out. The team onsite turned on a dime and made sure that the property was clean and ready to welcome us. Then, the price was so affordable that I was a bit suspicious about what I was gonna find to destination. But you know what, I couldn't believe my eyes, everything was lovely, and furthermore, very clean, so much better than what I was thinking. And, what about the beach ! Was absolutely perfect and clean, just a block away from the property. A small walk, ideal if you do not want to feel like to be just drinking, eating, sleeping and beaching ! And for the days that you do not want to go to the beach, you can rely on the nice swimming pool in the tropical garden. It is located between the buildings of the property, a complex of 12 units, so, even if you're right in the middle of downtown, beside the super famous Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue), you can relax in peace. And at night, walking down the streets is nice, plenty of bars and good restaurants all around. And you always feel safe on the property because it is protected with locked gates. I look forward to return again ASAP !! Thanks again !!!

Great location, Beautiful garden, just right!

  • 3 of 5
Small one bedroom condo located right where you want to be. A short walk down to Mamitas Beach and 5th is 40 feet away. Some of the best restaurants in Playa are right down the street. The courtyard right out the door is just beautiful, and the pool is like a gem in the center. The fixtures are a little dated but who stays inside? We will be back.

Living the Dream of La Coccinella

  • 5 of 5
The location is perfect for town, beach and privacy. The condo was very clean and had all necessary accommodations. The manager was responsible and available to us at all times. The entire complex had perfect security with no worries. The courtyard and pool were fabulous! After 20 plus visits to Mexico we for sure will be returning to La Coccinella condos.
