I grew up in Michigan, but now I spend most of my time in Los Angeles or in Playa del Carmen, what a life! :) I went to Bowling Green State University and majored in history, which I still love, and I also sing and write music. :)

Tobias Madigan purchased this condo in 2007

I love this property because of the location and the amenities. It is PERFECT for me because I can stay there as long as I want and never feel like a tourist, yet all the cool stuff that tourists can do is right around the corner. At the same time, I can eat cheaply, get groceries and get around town like a local. I love the pool, I love the space, I even love the couch! :) All in all, I can never wait to go back :)

The unique benefit here is definitely the location. It straddles the border with the tourist zone and the local/ex-pat zone, so it's convenient to just about EVERYthing, and so relaxing at the same time.

Perfect Vacation Beach Home

We didn't really want to leave. I brought my mom here for her only vacation from work this year and this was my third time to Playa del Carmen. We loved having our own private rooms! Neighbors were super friendly, definitely DOES NOT feel like a hotel. It's in the area that is about a block or two from 5th Avenue, so you can walk there in a minute or two but then retreat from it all and honestly, it felt more like a taste of Mexico to us because of the CHEAP local restaurants that you don't know about until you get off the main drag (El Fogon, La Ceiba de la Treinta, Kaxapa Factory, FreshCo.) My mom and I were both particularly impressed by the options for healthy food and even green smoothies (Catalina at Barra Light made me a Kale smoothie with Mango every time I went and I loved not having to sacrifice my nutrition routine while being in a foreign country). It's a perfect place to stay for all ages because I am 36 and my mom is 62, she enjoyed the morning quiet walks on the uncrowded beaches and I was able to enjoy the nightlife after she went to bed. The condo is big enough that you can't hear each other coming and going. Everything works fine, the place was pretty spotless when we arrived, we even had cute towel designs just like if we were at a spa. We used the pickup service from Cancun airport that Tobias and Ara arranged for us and it was very easy and friendly. What else . . . .the pool is lovely, the bikes were basic but we used them a few times, I was able to buy a local phone for $20, We went to Chichen Itza and another ruin called Ek Balaam which I actually like better because practically NO ONE was there! Honestly, rent this condo, it was the perfect home base and you never feel like another number at a hotel. Some days you just stay home and do nothing, what a vacay! Tks!
Owner's Response: Hello valued guests and thank you for your detailed response :) We are glad that you enjoyed some of our recommendations and we are happy to give you more on your next trip :)

Fantastic Place

Staying here was definitely better than staying at an all-inclusive resort like we did last time because it was much quieter and it comes with a large kitchen and huge dining room to cook our own meals when we wanted. We could walk to the grocery store, walk to the beach (Mamita's was rockin' and Coco Beach was our favorite to relax and read a good book on--both within easy walking distance), and walk to the new mall, Quinta Alegria, which really is just as nice as any mall in the U.S. or Europe. Thanks again guys and please check out our Condo if you are ever in Aspen!

We stayed here for two weeks for my husbands birthday and had a great time. Everything was as it's described, even a little better than expected actually because some of the places Tobias and Araceli told us to visit were things we would not have known about otherwise. I really appreciated how clean it was and I felt like we were really respected as customers. My son broke our beach umbrella and Araceli brought us a brand new one later that day, we were pretty impressed. We will come back again and appreciated all the local tips!! Thanks for a clean, well-functioning vacation in paradise. Your attention to detail and customer service was very much appreciated, made my day :)
Owner's Response: Thanks Nicole! We know that you have a lot of options to choose from and we are so happy that you chose our condo. Your feedback is appreciated too :)

Checklist: Comfy bed - CHECK! High-Speed reliable internet - CHECK CHECK! Location: CHECK CHECK CHECK!! Wayy better than Cancun and way more to do than Cozumel. Very safe, with locked gate, and close to beach and shopping til late. Comes with free guidebooks! lovin' it! My only regret is that we stayed one week instead of two (we went to Tulum for week two, but stayed in the town, which is REALLY far from the BEACH, here in Playa del Carmen we walked to the beach and back at least twice every day!!)
Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and for your business. We also recommend staying in Playa del Carmen rather than Tulum for that very reason, the beach is too far from the town! And Tulum is easy to reach from here in Playa for a great day trip :)

Perfect getaway--peaceful and affordable eats

We stayed at Tobias' lovely two-bedroom condo for 10 days and just left last week. We had a FANTASTIC time and couldn't recommend it highly enough. Here are the highlights:

--Place looked lovely upon arrival, towels were folded into swans on our bed!! Place was clean and spacious and guidebooks and tips were left for us! big plus!!

--Loved the location, a couple of great local eats right on the block, nice new shopping mall had a grand opening 2 blocks away, and we walked to the beach and 5th Avenue at least once everyday. Felt very safe here.

--Parking was fine, right in front of the building

--internet worked great, so did the cable tv, not always so common when traveling so we were grateful for that since I have lots of business emails to check every day

We ate at Kaxapa Factory across the street so many times we became friends with Jose and his daughter, the owners. We felt very at home and we also explored nearby places like the less crowded Ek Balaam ruins (Tobias' suggestion) and it was gorgeous, and Tulum and theme parks like Xel Ha and Xcaret are such a quick drive away.

This was the perfect home away from home and felt like a safe little hub on the Mayan Riviera. Much better, in my opinion, than staying at an all-inclusive hotel because we made our own food when we wanted and had cheap local eats or fine dining with a short walk whenever we wanted and never felt like an uber-tourist.

Thanks Tobias, we will be back!!!!!!
Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and leaving such a detailed review. We work very hard to make our condo one of the best options in Playa del Carmen and we appreciate reviews like this because they allow guests to see that we did it right and to know what we have and that it all works! :)
