Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

Lovely Arena Blanca!

Come share our slice of heaven on earth at Playa del Carmen!

Arena Blanca is located within walking distance of everything you need & we think it's the most beautiful condo complex in Playa. The locals call it 'the beautiful building'. The classic SPANISH ARCHITECTURE, brick-lined rotunda ceilings, tile floors, marble counters & shower speak 'quality'.

NO CAR - NO PROBLEM! Forget the rental car while you're in Playa!! We're located on Calle 38 Norte between 5th & 10th at the newer end of Playa. It's just a few minutes walk to great beaches, shopping & dining on 5th Ave., 2 modern grocery stores & several smaller markets. Ask us about the local Mexican and Italian restaurants right around the corner. We’ll give you recommendations, if you like!

We chose a second-floor condo for the view & a little privacy! Built in 2006 it's an 11-UNIT, GATED, SECURE complex. KING SIZE BED, TWO BATHROOMS with shared shower is just ideal! Best part is not having a lot of people around! It's a great place!

The private pool has an island palapas for shade. There's access to a roof-top terrace to sunbathe or watch the sun rise & set over Playa del Carmen & the Caribbean.

It's a well-maintained complex with full-time maintenance and gardening.

Our prices INCLUDE all fees (no booking/service fees!), bottled water, washer/dryer and wireless internet.

The manager speaks fluent English & Spanish and is available to meet any of your needs (tours, rental cars, spa treatments, catering medical issues, airport transfers) or questions.

EXERCISE options - besides running on the beach & walking 5th Ave! It's a 5-minute walk to the outdoor city sports center that features a track for running, stairs for climbing and basketball hoops for a quick game of B-ball. You can even take in a soccer game at night. A fitness center is just across the street too.

Hurricane Wilma hit November 2005 and luckily the windows weren't put in Arena Blanca yet! Amazingly, we returned in February, 2006 and watched the gate being built, the pool filled and waited for deliveries of furnishings. It's grown up very nicely!

Shari purchased this condo in 2006

Playa is a very unique vacation destination. We found the international mix of visitors created an up-scale happening place! And the beach is BEAUTIFUL!

Privacy and a great location!!!

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
This little abode is comfortable, clean and very well located; close enough to the energy of 5th Avenue with it's many restaurants, bars and shops and far enough away to feel secluded and private. We enjoyed the pool and beautiful landscape including an outdoor shower as well as the short walk to the beautiful beach. The bus station is within walking distance for day trips to Tulum and Akumal. Very near the condo, we recommend La Cueva del Chango for breakfast, Kool Fish (the guacamole and shrimp were excellent) and Piola (try the Pollo Piola). Nadia, Angeles and Shari were all welcoming and very helpful with travel advice and suggestions. It was the perfect getaway.

A WONDERFUL GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
The condo was perfect; exactly as described and consistent with the positive reviews. The condo and grounds were well maintained and clean, including the pool. On-site staff were helpful and friendly. Its a great location - right off 5th avenue, but at the more northern, quieter end. It felt very safe. While there was a bit of evening/night noise from nearby restaurants, the windows and doors shut out all noise. It is only a two minute walk to the beach, and everything else is close by - a car is not needed.
The owners were very responsive. The tip sheet identified in previous reviews was very helpful.
I would stay again in a heartbeat!

THIS PLACE IS HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Stayed in this condo for four weeks and it was wonderful. The condo is well-maintained and the staff is very helpful. The grounds are beautiful and the location perfect for going to the beach and Fifth Avenue with it's great dining and shopping. The owner provides a tip sheet that answers all the questions you might have and more. I hope to go back again soon.

QUIET CONDO NEAR THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
I have been to Playa del Carmen many times in the past 20 years and have seen many changes to this once quiet village. Arena Blanca was by far the best place I have stayed. I like to travel alone and this was a quiet and safe location near the beach and the restaurants on 5th Avenue. I loved the local feel of the corner bodega (look up for a German Shepard keeping watch) and the gentleman on the corner who calmly sells hamacas and is so proud to talk about his family near Merida. The staff at Arena Blanca are very friendly and helpful and they were so patient with my broken Spanish (they also speak English, but were happy to practice Spanish with me). Highlights include wonderful food, great local feel of the beach, acoustic music wafting toward the condo at night, great price, safe, and absolutely gorgeous and peaceful. I easily hired taxis to the main road where I jumped on colectivos to Paamul, another great location for local flavor and low numbers of tourists, and the cenotes. If you want the comforts of home, you can find them as well. The condo is clean, modern, and very comfortable. Thanks for sharing your home - I will happily return.

ARENA BLANCA - PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Highly rate this condo. Everything you need for a comfortable stay. All information you will need is highlighted in a nice book. The walk to Walmart is quite a hike but we did it. The beach is right there, pool right there, all shops and all kinds of dining a walk away. No need to rent a car. We will certainly be staying again. Clean, modern and well equipped. Pleasantly surprised, nicer than the photo's.
