Welcome To CASA MAYA PLAYA!

DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH AND on the GROUND FLOOR, overlooking the incredibly turquoise green and blue water of the Caribbean Sea my home, Casa Maya Playa, has every amenity you can imagine to make your vacation here in Cancun one that will live in your memories for years to come.

With three large king-size bedrooms, and four granite and stone bathrooms, it is the ultimate in luxury beach front living, and is perfect for parties of up to six people with grace and ease.

MY NEW HOME here is truly fantastic, and is located directly in the middle of the world famous hotel zone between the Hotel Riu and the Hotel Fiesta Americana. Its like owning your own private home directly on Waikiki Beach!

THE LOCATION IS CENTRALIZED so that you never have to rent a car as you can walk to almost every attraction Cancun has to offer. Taxis and buses are numerous for those day trips you will want to make to the nearby Mayan ruins of Tulum or other attractions like Splash, or the underwater caves at Xcaret.

LOCATED ON THE GROUND FLOOR, my home has a 45 square yard terrace and looks out onto the beach, ocean and adjoining gardens. Walk out onto the terrace and then walk a few more feet to the lap pool, and then a few more feet to the beautiful infinity swimming pool, and then down a few steps and you are standing directly on the whitest most beautiful sand in all the world.

DINING ON THE TERRACE is always a delight while relaxing at the solid granite dining table I have there for your enjoyment.

MY HOME IS QUITE LARGE, about 2,400 square feet with the living room, dining room and master bedroom facing the sea, and goes completely through the building from front to back, so that the two back bedrooms open into the gardens, with ocean view when standing outside.

THE CUSTOM DESIGNED KITCHEN has hand hewn granite countertops, a separate breakfast dining table, and all the amenities to make preparation of meals a delight. Dishwasher, microwave, blender, coffee maker are all there, and various spices are always on hand.

FOR THOSE OF YOU who appreciate the finest in amenities, we have not only a wonderfully large infinity swimming pool right at the edge of the beach, but also has a 30 meter lap pool with a large waterfall with submerged chaise lounges directly in front of my terrace, so you can lay on the lounges in the pool and sip your favorite tropical drinks while feeling the spray from the waterfall directly behind you. We also have a 3rd pool located on the street side of the building for those of you who want to catch the last rays of the sun for the day.

THERE IS ALSO a full service spa and fully equipped gymnasium at your disposal 24 hours a day. You can workout, and then treat yourself to a massage or facial without ever leaving the building!

THE BUILDING IS COMPLETELY SECURE, with 24 hour guards and receptionists to receive all visitors. Parking is private and directly under the condominium.

I AM IN LOVE with my new place, and I know that you would love it also. The Caribbean Sea has the most beautiful water I have ever seen, and I also own a home on Sunset Beach on Oahu (VRBO #9475), so I know what I am talking about.

CANCUN IS ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING PLACES I have ever been to. It has so much history, being home to the Mayan Indian civilization, that you will never be bored while you are here. Interested in Mayan culture? The Mayan History Museum is just two blocks from my home. The world famous Mayan ruins at Tulum are just 40 minutes down the coast.

ALL THE WATER SPORTS are within five minutes of my home. SCUBA and snorkeling are unsurpassed as the ocean here in Cancun has some of the clearest water in the world. Jet skis, parasailing, and sunset cruises are all part of the fun you will find here. By the way, the pirate ships cruise nightly directly in front of my terrace.

SWIMMING WITH DOLPHINS and hand-feeding sharks are one of the many attractions and are located just five minutes away. Don't worry though, the sharks are trained not to bite the tourist's fingers!

THE RESTAURANTS IN CANCUN are also world famous for their international cuisine. You will find the best French, Japanese, Chinese, Cuban, Italian, American and even Mongolian restaurants all within five to ten minutes from my smoke-free home.

By the way, you will notice the Mayan influence in cooking here. They use spices that are not found elsewhere, and the local food has a wonderfully distinct flavor. One of my favorites is the local fish known as 'Mero', which is Grouper in English, prepared in Mayan spices and steamed inside a banana leaf. Hmm, nothing better!!

NIGHT CLUBBING IS UNSURPASSED in Cancun. You have seen them all on entertainment television many times. Carlos and Charlie's, Senior Frog's, Coco Bongo, and the Hardrock Cafe are just a few. There is even a club here named the 'Over Thirty Club' for those of us who like blues and jazz.

THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING MUSICAL going on here in Cancun, home of the Cancun Jazz Festival. All the hotels and clubs have live bands, so you will always find music to suit your taste.

WORLD CLASS SHOPPING is all around you, with the beautiful Plaza Caracol across the street from my building, the fabulous Isla Dorada shopping center just five minutes away. Styled like Venice, Italy, it has little boats that cruise on the canals through the middle of the shopping center. You will be singing “Arrivederci Roma” in no time at all.

WE ALSO HAVE Free Wi-Fi High Speed Internet, so just bring your laptop and connect through your wireless connection and you are ready to go surf the Internet at no charge anytime of the day or night.

Our main endeavor to you is to make sure your stay with us is the best it can possibly be. Our property manager is always on call for you and lives nearby. We will happily provide you with any information or help that you need with securing any outside reservations or services that you may desire such as tours or activities, dolphin encounters or snorkeling, etc.

If you have a special need, just call us and we will do everything in our power to see that you have everything that you need.

About The Owner

Hi, I'm the very happy owner of Casa Maya Playa. I am an artist by trade, and I have been painting since I was about 4 years old. We came to Cancun in 2005 and fell in love with it immediately. The wonderful Mexican people share in their relaxed style of living here, and everything slows down just a notch or two from the “hurry up” pace of America. To be able to sit on our terrace and view the ocean and listen to the sound of the birds and waves is a wonderfully relaxing experience that I look forward to every morning that I am here and I am very happy to be able to share our little piece of Heaven with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2005

Why The Owner chose Cancun

When we first arrived and walked through the entrada and looked out and saw the crystal turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean right in front of us, we fell in love immediately. This was the best location in all of Cancun. We couldn't resist it.

What makes this condo unique

There are several unique features of our home, but the best is that it is the only condo you will find in Cancun that is LOCATED ON THE GROUND FLOOR OF OUR BUILDING......

You never have to enter an elevator to go to the pools, beach or back to your condo.

All the rest of the condos in Cancun are located high up in towers and you will find yourselves constantly going up and down elevators whenever you want to go out.

Another unique feature is that OUR TERRACE IS AS LARGE AS MOST OTHER CONDOS LIVING ROOM. So instead of having a little balcony hanging off the side of the building we have a terrace that has a large granite outside dining table on it, several chaise lounges, sun chairs and tables, etc. You can't beat it for having the most fun possible while on your vacation.......

Just bring your Swimsuit and a Smile to Have A Great Time!!!

This is the place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with my family and had a wonderful time. The condo is large and perfect for the 6 of us. We each had our own rooms and bathrooms. I love the first floor setting. It feels like your own home and not like you are in a high rise or large complex. The outdoor living on the porch was amazing. We sat outside almost the entire time we were there. The kitchen was large and we did cook in a few times and had everything we needed.

The best thing about our rental was how responsive and kind both Michel and Fredy were to any questions we had. Have no fears about renting from Michel - he is great.

The facility is perfect for a get away, especially with a family. You are steps to the beach and steps to the downtown area. Everyone can do what they want and it is all close by. I loved the grocery store across the street. It is most convenient for everything you would need.

The staff at the condo was also very helpful. I agree that the bartender was outstanding! We used the gym everyday and loved having that right across from the unit.

You do not need a car if you stay here as you are so close to everything. I would recommend taking some time and going to Isla Mujeres. The ferry is steps away from the condo and it is a very fun day excursion.

This was a very positive experience for us and we also hope to return at sometime in the future.

Would stay there again

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. We loved that the place was nice and quiet. I think on Thursday and Friday we were about the only ones in the pool. We noticed that the hotel next door was packed and people had to reserve pool space early in the day. We were happy not to do that. Also like all the beds/bath – even though we did not use them this time. Next time we will bring our sons and their girlfriends. It will be great that they will have their own space. We also liked that the grocery store was right across the street and it was so cheap. Found great snorkeling a few hotels down. No need for a car – everything was right there – very convenient. ."

Amazingly Beautiful & Relaxing! Loved every second of our trip!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing trip! I'm sorry I haven't written back sooner. It's hard to get back into work mode. Honestly, the tv's were a non-issue for us. We were out most days until late evening and we'd walk on the beach or sit on the patio after that. The kids had so much fun and we did as well. Very relaxing. Your condo is/was perfect. Close to everything, the views were amazing! We loved every second of our week there. We did 3 excursions. We did the dolphin discovery with the kids on Monday on Isla Mujeres. On Wednesday we booked a tour for Rio Secreto. We biked to a cenote and repelled down 80 feet! Explored the underwater caves for hours. It was fantastic! Our tour shuttle picked us up at RIU--super simple to walk out of your condo and pick it up. Then on Friday we took the first ferry over to Isla Mujeres, (We didn't get much time to explore the main island on Monday and wanted to return) we rented a golf cart for the whole day and explored the entire island tip to tip. So much fun! We ended up taking the last ferry back. Other than that, we swam and explored. Ate and drank and just relaxed as a family. Fredy was great too! Very responsive to any questions we had. The security was top notch and very friendly. The kids enjoyed speaking in Spanish with them as we came and went. Thank you so much for your hospitality and for sharing your beautiful home with us. We will definitely stay again! "

At first glance it was amazing

  • 3 of 5

the property location was amazing - however, there were several issues inside the condo that were never addressed. 2 of the 4 toliets were stopped up and no one came to fix (one of which was the Master, we had to shut the water off to the toilet because of the water running), the shower in one of the bedrooms never had hot water, the shower in the kitchen bathroom handle was broken, the air conditioning in the main part of the house was good, but in the bedrooms it would cool below 25-27 Celsius - even though we kept the set temp above 23 as requested by the owner. We tried a few times to reach the contact person that was given, with no reply.

All and all the condition of the property was good, but disappointing that we paid what we paid and the issues were never addressed during our stay.

Owner's Response: I am truly saddened by this review. Having happy guests is of the utmost importance to me. I am constantly upgrading and improving my condo. In the event of any problems every guest has my contact information. As well I have staff on call at the location to handle anything that may arise. Please see a quote BELOW from the extremely comprehensive information package I send to each guest prior to their stay. --------------------------------------------- "We have a wonderful manager who will probably be greeting you at the condo. If he is not there upon your arrival you will still be able to enter the condo without problems because you will have the lockbox code. His name is Fredy (Last names deleted in this response). Fredy's Email: Email (at)email.com (hidden) Fredy’s Mexican Phone: cell: 555-555-5555 (hidden) When you are calling him from the USA you dial like this: 011-521-555-555-5555 When you are there in the condo you would dial his number in the following way: 044-998 555 555-5555 from the phone on the kitchen counter. Building Administrator: We have an administrator at the building who will take care of any emergency you may have while visiting if Fredy is not available. Her name is Catherine (Last Name hidden) and her office is located under the building at the street entrance to the parking garage. The office is open from about 9AM to about 6PM. Catherine usually arrives about 10 to 11AM. You will probably never need to talk with her, but if you do, just dial extension 301 from the INTERCOM phone that is located on the kitchen counter, or you could just walk down to the administration office that is located directly at the entrance to our underground parking and speak directly to them there. Also, any of the other staff in the office will be happy to assist you." ---------------------------------------------------- It was very unfortunate that neither I, Fredy nor Catherine were contacted DURING the guests stay so we could right any actual problems and questions immediately. Had any one of us been contacted we would have done anything necessary to make this guest's stay a memorable experience.

Mayan Ruins, Shelling and virtually every other water sport known to modern man are right here in front of the condo. There is a Protected Kids Playground with swings, slides, etc. in the grassy garden area for the little tots in your family. Taxis and buses are numerous for those day trips you will want to make to the nearby Mayan ruins of Tulum or other attractions like Splash, or the underwater caves at Xcaret. Of course, cars are available for rent either at the airport and also right next to the building.

World Class Shopping is all around you, the beautiful Plaza Caracol being just across the street. And, Swimming With The Dolphins at the fabulous Isla Dorada shopping center is just 5 minutes away, which like Venice, Italy also has little boats that cruise on the canals through the middle of the shopping center. You will be singing “Arrivederci Roma” in no time at all!

Aloha from Your Owner,

Michel Rubini
