About Scott

We retired to Mexico and now call Fiesta Playa home. We owned our own company for 16 years and now love retirement. There are so many things to do in this area that we stay busy constantly. We like to share our home with respectful people. When we have guests stay in our home it gives us a chance to travel to other places.

Scott purchased this condo in 2005

Why Scott chose Playa del Carmen

Beautiful smooth, sandy beaches and the liveliness of 5th avenue are within a 5 min. walking distance. Being close to everything but still having the condo located on a quiet street. A charming area with people from all over the world (Italy, Germany, Canada, U.S, etc.). The spaciousness of the condo (3 floors), the common areas are beautifully landscaped and well maintained. Friendly people and a great location. Easy to get to.

What makes this condo unique

We offer a private driver for day trips and airport transfers.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Comforts of Home

Date of Stay: May 2008

We had a wonderful time. The location was great--away from the noisiest part of 5th Ave, and so close to the beach, where we spent the majority of our time. The condo was very comfortable and well equipped, and plenty large enough for the 5 of us (me--7 months pregnant, my husband, my friend--6 months pregnant, her husband, and their 2 year old daughter). I would definitely recommend it. It was like having all the comforts of home, on vacation in Mexico!

Perfect basecamp for a week in PDC

  • 5 of 5

You realize that what's different about this beautiful home is that it is not a "condo for lease" but someone's home that you are "borrowing" for a week :) The decor, the furnishings, the stocked kitchen, everything says "Home away from Home".

It's beautiful location - proximity to the beach and to 5th Avenue - is bar none!! We walked all over PDC and sampled many of the local restaurants (El Fogon, Brochettas, Chez Celine and Kaxapa Factory are highly recommended). While the beach near home was crowded for the time of year, we enjoyed our beach day near 48th St behind The Reef.

We visited Akumal (Yal Ku Lagoon followed by La Buena Vida were awesome suggestions, Scott), Tulum, Coba and the Choo Ha Cenote, Cozumel, Sian Ka'an and Muyil. Guides at Sian Ka'an and Cozumel brought the places to life for us!!

Scott's thoughtful gift basket helped us knock back some hunger pangs after a day of travel. The prompt responses to queries, the dining suggestions, the clear instructions and Scott's communication made it very easy for us to settle in and make the most of our vacation. Our favorite relaxation spot was the rooftop deck. We also enjoyed conversations with the "snow birds" who spend their winter in Playa Del Carmen.

Thank you Scott for sharing your home with us. It was a wonderful break from Chicago and we look forward to visit again!!

The property was very well maintained and secure.

  • 5 of 5

Scott's home was beautiful and as described! You can tell there was a lot of love and care taken in the decorating and furnishing of the property. Scott went out of his way to make us feel welcome and comfortable as the home was freshly decorated for the holidays and we were greeted with a wonderful gift basket and personalized Christmas stockings. I would highly recommend and plan to return at some point in the future!

Hacienda San Jose in Playa

  • 5 of 5

I love this place. It's recently remodeled and the kitchen is super nice. One block from Mamitas beach and one block from 5th. No car needed here. The hacienda style architecture really makes you feel like you're in old school mexico with modern conveniences. This place is not your typical rental but is someone's home. It feels like home. My favorite thing though is the private room deck. Fantastic!!! We will def be back! Love this place!!!

Great location and condo complex

  • 5 of 5

The Penthouse is clean and well maintained. We especially enjoyed evening drinks and dinner on the roof top. The location is outstanding within easy walking to either 5th Avenue or the beach. The restaurant recommendations provided by the owner proved to be excellent. The manager and staff were very helpful and further added to an enjoyable stay.

Beautiful condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Scott's condo in Playa Del Carmen. It is very tastefully decorated and the rooftop deck was a great amenity. The pool was very refreshing after the beach. The maintenance guy cleans the pool early every morning. Scott gave us a great list of restaurants, beaches and other things to do. We went to almost every restaurant on his list and loved them all.

The location of the condo is great - right between the beach and 5th Avenue. It was very quiet at night and we rested very peacefully.

We hope to return to Playa Del Carmen in the near future.

Beautiful Condo and Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week in this beautiful condo. It is very well appointed and with 2 master suites worked very well for 2 couples. It is very conveniently located. A close walk to both 5th Avenue and the beach. The pool was never crowded and very nice to enjoy after a day at the beach or sightseeing. The best part of the condo is of course the rooftop terrace. So peaceful in the mornings and evenings!

Scott was wonderful to work with. He answered all of our questions and helped to arrange transportation to and from the airport and for a day trip to Tulum.

We had a very fun and enjoyable vacation. Would not hesitate to recommend this condo to my friends and family.

Car: not necessary

Playa Del Carmen is located 40 min. south of Cancun Airport. Fiesta Playa is in a fantastic location on 1st avenue between 24th & 26th Street in the heart of Little Italy just a few steps from Mamita's Beach, which is considered the most beautiful and popular beach in Playa del Carmen. It is only one block off of the main promenade (5th avenue) where all of the trendy restaurants and shopping are found. Ferry to Cozumel located blocks away off of 5th Avenue. Two water theme parks are within 15-45 min away: Xel-Ha: Swim with the dolphins, Snorkel, Water Activities & Xcaret: Water Theme Park. The Mayan ruins of Tulum are also located 45 min. south.
