Playa del Carmen Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy one the most luxurious beachfront condos in Playa del Carmen! 3 bedrooms for the price of 2.

This 1500-square foot luxury beachfront condo is perfect for the family that wants to enjoy the tranquil pleasures of Mexico’s Playa del Carmen. Located in the 24-unit Luna Encantada complex, the condo is on the beach, and is a 1/2 block from the fine restaurants and shopping of the world famous 5th Avenue. Its central location and luxurious interior makes it the perfect vacation spot.

The contemporary 3-bedroom condo offers many elegant touches reminiscent of a first class hotel, unparalleled in Playa del Carmen. Features include a fully appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, luxury bathrooms with marble floors and walls, and travertine marble floors throughout the unit.

The 10-foot high ceilings and private balcony enhance the viewing pleasure of the unspoiled Caribbean setting. Other amenities include: washer/dryer, linens, beach towels, 24-hour security, ceiling fans, individually climate controlled air conditioning, water purification system, underground parking, and elevator.

The fully appointed kitchen has everything you need to make a meal, including appliances, tableware, pots, pans, bowls, etc.

There are three spacious bedrooms in the condo that will comfortably accommodate 6 people. The master suite with en suite bathroom and walk-in closet is furnished with a king bed; the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms feature one queen bed each. All of the large windows and sliding doors are covered with black-out curtains to ensure that you can sleep in if you want to. Also, the condo is equipped with hurricane glass on all of the windows and doors, which has an added benefit of keeping out any unwanted noise.

The beach in front of Luna is white powdery sand, and the crystal-clear blue-green ocean can be entered directly in front of the complex. The beach is furnished with lounge chairs for use only by Luna guests, and there are palm trees and umbrellas to relax under if you need a break from the sun.

Guests will find all the convenient comforts at the doorstep. Open air restaurants and boutique shopping on Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue) is just a 1/2 block away. Just 4 blocks from the condo is the Cozumel Ferry Pier. Relax on lounge chairs next to the infinity edge pool or use the patio furniture on your private balcony.

Other condo features include high speed wireless internet access; free phone calls to most North American and European countries, and a hotel-quality safe for valuables. Every other day maid service is included. Other services available for an additional fee include van service from Cancun airport, personal chef service, and provisioning services.

Enjoy the alabaster beaches, turquoise waters and unique charms of a once-sleepy fishing village that has become a favorite destination of visitors from Europe, United States and Canada. Watch your day unfold at an unhurried pace. The beautiful Caribbean Ocean is steps from your door. Swim, snorkel or jog along a white sand beach that stretches for miles.

Playa del Carmen, in Mexico’s Riviera Maya in the Yucatan Pensinsula, offers a unique charm untainted from the commercial tourism found in larger destinations. Nestled in the backdrop of the Mayan excavations, this old fishing village offers something for everyone. Adventurers will enjoy archaeological sites, exploring the underground rivers, parasailing, and scuba diving in the famed Palancar Reef. For those who want to take it easy, world-class golf courses, boating and sailing are available. Playa del Carmen is the ultimate vacation experience.

About Maia Schneider

Mike and Maia call Lake Tahoe home, but love a great beach just about anywhere. They discovered Playa del Carmen in 2006 and have never looked back.

Maia Schneider purchased this condo in 2007

Why Maia Schneider chose Playa del Carmen

Luna Encantada offers the best of Playa - right on the beach, one block from the lively Avenida and surrounded by the rich history and beautiful locales of the Mayan peninsula. They chose this development for its emenities, location, and proximity to everything that Playa has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

This condo includes everything you need to call it home, plus the benefits of housekeeping service. Your patio overlooks the pool and beach, and the home comfortably accommodates 6 guests for the same price as a two bedroom condo.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is the nicest place in Playa. The view is fabulous and and the condo is very upscale. Everything is well maintained and very clean. You are within walking distance to everything in town or you can just watch the waves on the beach. We are going back!!

What a fabulous condo!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay so much in this brand new beautiful condo here in

Playa. It is meticulously decorated with all the added extras you

could ever want, including beautiful Indonesian furniture and accessories.

A big advantage of this condo is that you are near so many of the shops

and restaurants, bus station and boat pier to Cozumel. No need to rent a car here. The warm Caribbean Ocean is footsteps away. We ate many meals on the patio with the beautiful view of the water and just steps away from the pool. I also love the fact that the patio is shaded pretty much all day long, so we could sit outside and enjoy the ocean sounds and breeze without baking in the sun.

What a wonderful setting!!!

What a delightful area of the world to vacation in!!

Love Playa Del Carmen and love Luna Encantada!

  • 5 of 5

We are just completing our 3rd week in the condo and absolutely love it. After visiting many vacation areas of Mexico, we have decided that Playa Del Carmen is our favorite and Luna Encantada is the ideal pace to stay when we are there. We had previously stayed at Luna Encantada but this is our first time in this particular unit. Everything is exactly as described on the website and the photos accurately depict the unit. The location right on the beach and close to restaurants, shopping and activities could not be better. While there is no shortage of excellent places to eat out, the condo is well equipped for those days you want to prepare something and stay in. Maia was great to work with and went out of her way to answer my questions and ensure our stay was pleasurable. We are retired, but were joined by our young adult children and grandson for a week. They all agreed it's perfect for all ages. I certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a great vacation stay!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Luna Encantada was easily one of the best family vacation sites we've had, truly a home away from home. We were greeted at the secure gate, and taken immediately to our 3 bedroom condo. The on-site help was always prompt and available. Jose was so helpful; he even brought a fan for our bedroom since we were used to having the "white noise." A ceiling leak from the upper floor was immediately addressed. Although just across from a bar/grill, the noise never bothered us at night. (A few pesky footfalls from above, but that can happen at any resort/hotel.) The infinity pool, grounds and beach were spotless. Gabriel at the beach was so nice and helpful with umbrellas, drinks and chairs. (One could walk a long ways on the beautiful white sand beach.) We made use of the laundry daily, as well as the kitchen. Less than a block away, was Fifth Avenue, where we enjoyed many shops, restaurants, and miscellaneous businesses. After a few days, we even let our kids go without us to shop. The view from our patio was spectacular. Many hours were spent there just listening to the waves and enjoying the view. Also a perfect spot to watch the pool, if our kids were swimming. (*Teens, not toddlers.) There were several excursion kiosks right on the beach near our condo. Our family did snorkeling, para-sailing and jet-skiing. Also, massage and yoga right next door. (Our extended family who joined us, really enjoyed deep sea fishing with Ivan, which was booked online before our trip. (Highly recommend Fishing with Ivan, which was a short cab ride away.) Yaxche Mayan Restaurant was very good, and just a couple blocks from us on 5th was Cafe de la Mer, an upstairs restaurant which was fabulous. Housekeeping came as much or as little as you wanted, and they were great! I cannot wait to go back here. Loved it so much more than any hotel or resort, and I have been to quite a few. The mega (groceries) and Walmart were walking distance, (maybe a mile) but a cab is needed to carry stuff back. LOVED this place the best out of all my 10 or so, trips to Cancun/Playa del Carmen. Can't wait to return!

Best birthday ever!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Playa with another couple to celebrate three birthdays. Without a doubt, this was my best birthday ever! This beautifully appointed condo was right on the beach and near everything we wanted - shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. We understand from the leasing agent that it was recently remodeled and it shows. The condo has two full baths, which worked great for two couples. And we used the full kitchen for breakfasts and some lunches, and ate out the rest of the time at great places within a stone's throw. The staff on site was professional and very helpful, and we even got in-room massages from Monica (ask the beach chair attendant - she's his wife). Turning 50 went from dreaded to delightful and we will stay here again.
