Overview

Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1250 sq. ft., roof-top oceanview

Located in the most unique architectural luxury condo building in Playa, this condo is a renter's heaven. Close enough to walk to all attractions. 200 paces in one direction will take you to the white sand of Coco beach while 200 paces in the other direction will have you at 5th Ave, a 1.5 mile long stretch of hip spots: Stores, clubs, bars, restaurants and coffee shops and a casino.

Heliko is a gated condominium with 24hr Security, with only 24 units, making it an exclusive, quiet, relaxing choice for the perfect getaway.

An elevator makes it easy to access with luggage and groceries and will also take you to the roof-top pool and hot tub where you will be able to relax on lounge chairs.

The condo is beautifully decorated: Marble floors and bathrooms, granite top kitchen counters, comfortable mattresses, Wi-Fi Internet access, colorful kitchen dishes and utensils.

3 separate air condition units make sure the temperature is always comfortable: One unit in the living room and one in each bedroom.

Bar stools at the kitchen island make the perfect seating for a quick breakfast for 2 while the marble dining table seats 8.

The living room features Italian leather furniture, an L-shaped sofa and a comfortable high-back armchair, as well as a 42” HDTV with cable service and a Blu-Ray player.

You’ll also find a guide to attractions and the best dining in Playa.

The Master bedroom has a king size bed while the guest room bed could easily be set-up as a king size or two twin beds (our maids will set the beds up to your specs prior to your arrival).

The beach features a Beach Club, restaurant & bar, as well as a sea-doo rental and massage tents.

The condo is equipped with 4 beach chairs, a zero-gravity chair and a large beach umbrella which could all be mounted on a large cooler-on-wheels and wheeled to the beach.

We also provide a unique, 24-hour concierge service for a one time fee of US$150 which includes, among other services, a pre-loaded Mexican cell phone. Please inquire for full details.

About Niv Ben-Haim

My wife and I are business professionals who visited Playa del Carmen and simply fell in love with the place. We have invested time and money in our luxury condo to make sure it's the perfect home-away-from-home to us and our guests. We spared no effort and expense in decorating and equipping it with all that's required for the perfect getaway.

Niv Ben-Haim purchased this condo in 2012

Why Niv Ben-Haim chose Playa del Carmen

Heliko is a unique condo building in Playa del Carmen, which is like no other place around the caribean sea: A quiet town yet with party spots, no high-rise buildings, unbelievable year-round weather and a huge selection of great dining spots and beach locations.

What makes this condo unique

Extremely close to beach in a quiet area of Playa del Carmen, open concept architecture of the building, gated and safe environment with 24/7 security.

2 weeks of Perfection

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time in Playa del Carmen and we are so happy we chose Heliko
Condo #206. The location is perfect..literally a 5 minute walk to beach. Condo provides beach chairs and a cooler so you can stay for the whole day.
At night you are also 5 minutes from 5th Ave, where all the restaurants/shops are.
Thankfully being at Heliko #206 we had peace and quiet at night away from all the noise
on 5th. Some nights we slept with the doors open. Air Conditioning was so quiet when on..we thought it sounded like ocean waves. There is security 24/7 so very safe
area and building.
Most days we did a combo of enjoying the roof top pool ( which we had to ourselves most days :)...and beach.
Condo itself was beautifully furnished and the 2 bedrooms were well situated apart
so my wife and I had privacy from our 16 year old..who enjoyed her own space.
There was also 2 full showers/bathrooms and another bathroom.
All in all everything we wanted. Any questions were answered within minutes by owner
or the local property manager.
We look to forward to returning next year!
Thanks for letting us have the use of your condo!

Awesome

  • 5 of 5
Loved staying here. Wonderful with all the amenities. For me the only thing I would change is darker blinds in the master bedroom. They are white and since I usually sleep in total darkness it took some getting used to. I was awKe with the sun every morning. Not a complaint by any means just something to get used to. A security person will deliver water for you and I have yet to find a real hot tub in Mexico so we certainly didn't expect it here. We have been to this area 4 times. Would definately return to this particular condo in a heartbeat.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 3 nights at this condo during a two week trip to the mayan riviera. It is just as shown in the pictures clean, new and modern. It's in the north side of playa. A little quieter and yet only a short walk to fifth avenue and the beach. The roof top pool was clean and refreshing after a long day at the beach and the view was amazing of the ocean and modern condos popping up in the area. We rented a car and had a secure gated parking space right beside the condo. Walking around in the area at night always felt safe and there is security on site and visible on all the blocks in the area. The kitchen was awesome, had good cookware for our purposes and even had a garlic crusher which we made good use of by cooking a huge seafood feast with local fish and produce.
The air conditioners cooled the place down in 5 minutes whenever we rolled in the door. Reading previous reviews I did bring some water to get started but there is drinking water in the fridge and an 18 litre jug was there on arrival. The beach chairs are nice, backpack style low riders perfect for the beach and easy to carry and the cooler if you like cold beer (lol) was big enough and on wheels that you could pack enough for a full day at the beach.
Niv was easy to communicate with and got back to me quickly if I emailed him. It was easy and convenient to access the condo with the instructions he sent me. The entertainment area was easy to figure out and the couch was very comfortable. The beds were also very comfortable and the safe was easy to operate. Oh and last thing we were surprised to see all floors were accessible by an elevator so a good spot to stay if you have mobility issues, except for the roof top pool which requires stairs to access. If you are researching a place to stay I hope this review is helpful in deciding. Niv thanks for letting us enjoy your home away from home.

My family and I have traveled to Playa Del Carmen 14 or 15 times. Our first visit was in 1994 and we have been back almost every year since. We have rented houses in Playacar and rented several condos in the Playa Cocos area on several occasions. So when I give this review, I want you to understand that it is not my first rental or visit to PDC. But I do want to be fair to the owner and give an honest review of our stay (Dec 2013)
Overall, the condo is as described on the website. It was clean and well furnished. However, based on what is described on the website, I would say there are several misrepresentations and minor improvements that need to be made to make this a 5 star rated condo. I would rate it at a 3.5 with the following suggestions:
There is no hot tub as described in the advertisement. I rented this condo wanting to use a hot-tub and was disappointed to find out that it is only an extension of the pool. He also states that the kitchen is ‘well-equipped’ and for the most part it is. But it is also missing hot pads, measuring cups and spoons, plastic glasses to use at the pool, and not many cooking utensils. There are not even margarita glasses – a first for any rental I have stayed in. There was only a Nescafe coffee maker in the place. You have to buy Nescafe coffee (which sucks) and is over-priced at Walmart. We ended up buying a cheap drip coffee maker because we hated the Nescafe machine.
There is no BBQ-grill at this place – another first. To be fair, he doesn’t advertise a grill but again, everyone else provides one as part of a standard rental. We had to buy a P.O.S. grill at Walmart to make due. We were also missing a hair dryer called and they did bring one a couple of days later. But this is the small stuff that just adds up to become a pain on vacation.
We stayed during the holidays and paid top dollar (as expected). Although they provided several bottles of water to get us started, there is no water service as provided by every other place we have ever stayed. So be prepared to buy water at the store.
Finally, the condo comes with one TV and it is a good TV. But we traveled with kids who don’t always watch the same type of shows. The condo has hookups for other TV’s but they have only one. They also do not provide any form of stereo/MP3 player. We ju

Owner's Response: Brad, thanks for your comments. It's through this process that we can improve. We are new at renting out and have been doing it for only 10 months. We have yet to receive reviews that included any of the challenges you have encountered, hence the reason they have not been addressed.
Following your review we have taken action to correct ALL issues. First, at the next owners meeting of Heliko we will discuss turning the "tub" on the roof into a real hot tub and purchase a high-quality gas BBQ. As for the kitchen, we will be adding a standard coffee machine, margarita glasses and plastic cups. We will also purchase an MP player for the living room.
Thanks for your patronage.
