AFFORDABLE PARADISE! LOVELY ONE BEDROOM, WALK TO BEST BEACH

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.

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.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Playa is my home away from home. I've always wanted to own a place there but haven't been lucky enough. Antoinette has allowed us to share in her wonderful home and is absolutely the best corresponding! She makes traveling to Playa a no hassle vacation! Her place is cozy, warm and inviting. It is the perfect location and has a beautiful veranda next to the pool! The condo has everything you need and is very clean. Perfect for couples or traveling with a child. I would love to own her condo. It feels like a real Mexican vacation. Like I said, Home Away from Home. Thanks Antoinette:)

We were at this house from Jan 29 to Feb 12, 2011.

First, the agent, Lorenzo, gave us a warm welcome, and made sure we had everything we needed.

i'd say the biggest advantage of being in this condo was the location. A little 1 min walk and you are on the beach! We saved a lot of money by going for lunch at the condo and go back to the beach. Even though it is located at the corner of 5th street, the place is very quiet, since it is a private yard surrounded by walls, so you don't hear anything at night. We absolutely loved it!

The place was clean, the price was good and we had everything we needed (water, etc).

Don't expect a five star condo, it is not a luxirious palace like other places in Playa, but it is perfect for people who are looking for an unexpensive, clean and confortable place to stay, that is close to everything. Plus the service (both owner and agent), is very friendly and good.

I'd say the kitchen stove and equipements are not made to cook a huge dinner, but convenient to make a small meal for 2.

I'd recommend this appartment to anyone!

Owner's Response: It was OUR pleasure having you as guests. From first conversations to thank you notes!

I agree- no baked turkey or cakes in the kitchen. I find myself using the portable appliances for broiling, toasting or warming food up. Not luxurious, but efficient!

Hope to have you as return guests in the future!!
Thanks again!

SWEET, COMFY, PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
"Being able to very easily be on the beach, stroll along La Quinta, shop for groceries and walk to snorkeling made the location of La Coccinella ideal. Antoinette's place is clean, simple, comfortable and easy. Bed large, nicely firm with reading lights on each side and alarm clock. Closet to hang clothes and shelving in closet for folded stuff. Towels fluffy, large and plentiful. AC very effective. Kitchen sufficiently outfitted. Bottled water great. Music and TV a nice plus. Loved walking right out the door into garden and pool. Beach chairs and umbrella for use. Quiet - good sleeping. Lorenzo, property manager, was gracious and available (email). Free wifi at Starbucks next door. Highlights, in no particular order, sunrise swim 1.5 blocks away, fresh fruit and veggies at DAC grocery on 30th, snorkeling on reef off Coco beach, collectivo to Akumal for snorkeling with turtles and rays, renting bikes from Busters for $5/day (at 10th and 10th), evening cold beer on our patio after a busy day, El Fogon's tacos al pastor (8 pesos, 30th and 32nd)."
