Casa Schwartz Was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From initial inquiry to reservation and arrival/departure, Casa Schwartz delivered. I stayed in the this wonderful Playa del Carmen condo in August 2016 for a week with my wife and two teenage daughters and we had an excellent stay. Tracey, the owner and Volker/Noel the onsite manager and staff make it super easy to arrive and settle in. I had some trouble using Pay Pal and Tracey was very patient and helpful. The condo is located ideally on the quiet side of 5th Avenue close to Italian cafes (largest colony of Italians in all of Mexico is in PDC) and a wonderful Mexican chain café called Cacao Café... not to mention amazing Italian places everywhere. If Italian is not your thing, no worries, you can eat ANY kind of food in PDC for ANY kind of budget {guartanteed} ... though I suggest you explore the local taquerias which are amazing if you are a meat eater! You are close enough to supermarkets to walk or just take a $35 peso taxi ($2 dollars) to the Super Aki or Mega Super where you can load up on anything you might want to cook in the well stocked condo kitchen. You are close to miles and miles of beaches within a few blocks and can walk anywhere at any time because this little town is very mellow and super tourist friendly ... the place DESTROYS the "Mexico is Dangerous" myth propagated by the media. The condo is on the first floor and in a very accessible, safe and secure modern building. It has a screened-in back porch facing a nice well maintained pool to cool off. You want value, ease of use and comfort? ... stay at Casa Schwartz. Quintana Roo State and the Mexican Riviera are at your doorstep! Oh, you also have access to parking if you rent a car ...if not, just use the multiple modes of public transport available in this wonderful country (from taxis to Collectivo Mini buses [great bargain] to ADO air-conditioned deluxe buses with movies) Whether you want quaint Mexico or developed strip mall Americanized amenities this condo is close to all of it but in the comforts of a place you can call cozy home when visiting PDC.

Relaxing in Playa

  • 5 of 5

Great week in Tracey and Wayne's flat. The wifi was so important to us as work duties called and it was never a problem. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed to make meals, smoothies, coffee and so on. There is also a barbecue and a 4-5 person table on the roof for those to enjoy that style of cooking. The bed was comfy, they have fans and air conditioning (when needed) and there was an added convince of an additional half bath. Location was perfect, it's 5 minute walk to a great beach for which the apartment has chairs, umbrella and cooler for use. The dip pool is perfect for those with little ones or a quick cool off. The place is also fully screened windows, doors and porch, which makes for a comfortable evening. Also the quite part of 5th Ave was less than 50 meters away and made for an easy stroll to food & shopping. The homeowners & support staff were very nice and attentive to our needs and those of the apartment. Thanks again for having us!

Perfect quiet week

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! The size of the condo was exactly what we expected and needed. It had everything anyone could ever require to make for a comfy stay. The bed was one of the best we've encountered in our travels. Lots of closet space. The living area was great. September was very warm, so even though we only used the A/C in the bedroom at night, we quickly discovered that the condo stays cool all day! Bonus!

The screened back porch with ceiling fan is such an excellent idea. Kept the mosquitos away. The pool only a few steps down. We had it all to ourselves for the week.

Location is ideal and safe. Close to everything, including the beach. No need for a car, you can walk everywhere. We made use of the beach chairs and umbrella. We visited all our favorite restaurants while we were in town (Piola, Don Chendo, Papa Charly, The Dirty Martini Bar, Zenzi, Wah Wah beach bar).

Dear Tracey and Wayne; many thanks for letting us rent your condo for that special week. See you soon.

The perfect place to stay for small families and everybody else! BEST value for money!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place from the first second on. Even before staying there it was already the perfect vacation. Tracey, the owner, is sooo helpful, patient (we've had quite a view questions beforehand :-)) and friendly and answered almost within minutes.

She had lots of tips and tricks finding the best and cheapest stuff in playa. Restaurants, car-rentals, groceries, activities, day trips, etc. We saved huge money with all of her tips!

We traveled the first time with our two little kids and had some concerns how it would be. But we've had certainly the best time there with the kids. They loved the (clean) pool and the fact, that the beautiful beach was just a few minutes away.

Actually the location is perfect. Almost everything is in good walking distance. It's just half a block away from 5th avenue, not loud ad all, though...

The condo itself was very clean and the kitchen facilities perfect for cooking our own stuff. It comes with everything you need: Fly screen (very important :-)), (beach)towels, washing machine (also very important with kids :-)), beach chairs, cooler, books, wifi, air condition...Almost like at home. We loved the deck with the direct access to the pool. Especially in the evening when there was a nice breeze we loved to sit out there having dinner and some drinks.

The property manager also was very helpful and friendly. We also felt very safe and didn't have any bad experiences.

But actually the best thing was by far the price. You can't find something similar for that price...!!!

So the far trip all the way from Germany was certainly worth it and we recommend the condo not just for young families but also for everybody else.

Thanks for the best family trip in paradise!!!

Sasky in Mexico

The condo is in an excellent location just on the North end of the main 5th avenue strip in Playa. It is just a few minutes from the beach. Bring the lawn chairs down to the beach for some relaxing and ocean swimming. Everything is in walking distance, start at one end and enjoy all the different stores and restaurants as you explore Playa's 5th ave strip. The owners give great recommendations for even more authentic restaurants that are a few blocks off the main strip, but sharpen up on your spanish.

The condo is very nice and clean and has everything a family would need. We enjoyed playing cards on the patio and cooking up some appetizers and tacos! For the small family this is the ideal spot!

The best location in Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

Look no further. This is the best place to stay in Playa del Carmen The famous 5th Avenue, were you can find all the restaurants, bars, music and shops is just on the corner. Although in Loma Mariposa there was not noice and we were enjoying sleeping in the comfortable king size bed of the bedroom. The beach was only 5 minutes walking distance from the condo. For these reasons the location is just perfect!

The swimming pool was very clean and convinient. The kitchen had all the facilities and the relevant equipment and the sitting place was very comfortable. We had wifi internet and the owners were extremely helpful (they gave us books and maps and took care all our needs). We had a wonderful stay (me, my husband and our 4 years girl) and we certainly go back again. Many thanks for the warm hospitality.
