About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy one the most luxurious beachfront condos in Playa with a private rooftop terrace.

Imagine your own private roof top terrace with panoramic ocean views right in the heart of town. Welcome to Luna Encantada Unit H3, one of the premier oceanfront, penthouse villas in the exclusive boutique 24 unit Luna Encantada Villas.

Luna Encantada's location is one of its best amenities. These resort condos are set amidst Playa del Carmen’s mythical beach and vibrant international sidewalk scene. A mere half block from the gates of Luna Encantada, Playa’s urbane Fifth Avenue pedestrian promenade beckons with relaxed cafes and gourmet restaurants, exclusive lounges, and alfresco bars, intriguing boutiques and local purveyors of all types and variety.

The master bedroom offers a king bed, walk-in closet, and huge walk-in shower tiled with travertine marble. The 2nd bedroom, which has 2 queen beds and a full bath with bathtub, is appointed with beautiful teak furniture.

This luxury beach villa is tastefully decorated in Caribbean Beach decor. The ocean is visible from most every room in the villa, especially from the kitchen, living room, and master bedroom where a wall of sliding glass doors and windows offer unobstructed views of the ocean. But the best room in the house is the rooftop terrace. On the terrace you can relax with friends, dine with the outdoor gas BBQ, or just soak in the sun. In the condo, travertine marble floors extend onto your private outdoor terrace, fully equipped chef's stainless kitchen with granite counter tops and throughout the unit. Original paintings and many other fine details provide international style. Even the terrace is furnished in the finest indoor/outdoor comfort for lounging and alfresco dining. The common area courtyard has beautiful landscaping of palm trees, tropical plants, flowers, fountain and a large refreshing infinity edged pool and jetted whirlpool bath. Complimentary outdoor tables and lounge chairs are provided for relaxing and entertaining around the pool.

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

Blessed with perennially sunny skies and a mild climate, Playa prides itself on a relaxing open-air, pedestrian lifestyle. It’s a place to recharge your batteries, find your adventurous side or spend an afternoon happily exploring the finer points of doing absolutely nothing at all! Playa provides a vibrant variety of natural and multicultural experiences any time of year. When the sun rises over the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean it all comes to life. First-rate golf, esteemed spa's, fine outdoors dining and an internationally acclaimed nightlife – the options of experiencing Playa are truly limitless.

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 amenities, location, and proximity to everything that Playa has to offer.

What makes this condo unique

This beautiful condo features a private patio and rooftop terrace overlooking the pool, beach and ocean.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful condo! We enjoyed making breakfast each morning and sitting on the balcony. The beach is one of the most relaxing and long stretches of white sand we've ever seen. Thanks for sharing this special spot. Great memories for years to come!

This place is outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our stay at Luna. From the beginning to the end it was wonderful. Maia helped us arrange for airport transfers which were great and very reasonable. The staff and Edith were all amazing. Edith checked on us several times to make sure the cleaning was good and to see if we needed water or anything else. She even booked our day trip to Tulum which was great. They were so ready to make our stay a great one. This condo is well equipped, beautifully decorated and comfortable. The rooftop balcony is awesome. It's so close to everything that we walked everywhere. Shopping, restaurants, groceries and even mass at a beautiful chapel on the water were minutes away. We couldn't get over how clean and safe it was walking around. Then when you were ready to go back to the condo it was 1/2 block away but felt like you were miles away. We couldn't believe how quiet and secluded the condo felt being so close to everything. The beach was great and nicely kept. The attendants were waiting and ready to fix your chair and help with whatever you needed. I can truly say that we loved this condo. We definitely hope to return!

Wonderful apartment with a great ocean view

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Luna Encantada. The apartment was great and had all necessary amenities. A full length mirror in the master bedroom would be nice. We especially liked the roof top access, with the most amazing view of the ocean. My only complaint another sun lounger and a couple of bar stools for the raised level would have been wonderful for watching the world go by with a cocktail.

The staff at Luna were very helpful and always happy to answer any questions. Edgar always made sure we were well taken care of at the beach, with chairs, tables and an umbrella.

Edith, the property manager was also great. We talked to her about a tour of the ruins and she made it happen.

Now back in cold, cloudy Ohio and missing Luna. Until next time.

Another Heaven On Earth Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been vacationing in H3 yearly for the last 5 years, some years twice a year. Maia is ALWAYS very responsive and very easy to deal with. Aside from this location being the absolute best; Maia makes it that much more enjoyable for us! This past visit, we changed it up and did a family trip including my in-laws, sister in-law, 7 month old niece and our 5 year old son. Everyone had an absolutely great time and they are all wanting to visit H3 again. I have already booked our time with Maia for next year....that is how much we LOVE it! Thank you Maia for Everything! -'Your Un-met Friend" xo

Dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this unit for 5 nights. The condo and the location were perfect! We loved the view and loved lying in bed listening to the waves. Even though the condo is in the part of the building farthest from the ocean, it sounded like we were right on the ocean. The condo is well appointed, comfortable and very clean. Maia was terrific - very responsive and helpful, as was Edith the property manager! Edith wasn't feeling well while we were there but she still showed up multiple times to make sure everything was perfect for us. And the location - WOW! Even though there isn't a restaurant or bar on site, there was food and drink available on either side of the condo building right on the beach and the wait staff from those places will bring you food and drink on the beach in front of the condo. The proximity to 5th Avenue can't be beat. It's a very short walk to restaurants, bars, and shopping (and only a few blocks to Walmart), but the condo felt very private and was very quiet. It was perfect! Everything was perfect! We went there in need of some serious relaxation and fun and we most definitely found it in Playa del Carmen and at Luna Encantada! Already planning our 2017 trip!!!!

We stayed at this property for 5 nights and had a fabulous vacation. The location of the property was absolutely perfect! We walked out of the property and right onto the fabulous 5th Avenue Avenida. The view from the roof top patio was spectacular. The beach was right out front with an attendant to set up chairs and umbrellas. The unit itself was clean and very comfortable. The air worked well and we were supplied fresh large water jugs whenever we ran out. Everything worked perfectly and the wireless worked flawlessly. The unit was spacious and the area was very quiet. We had a relaxing awesome time and I would definitely recommend this property. The owners always got back to me quickly with questions and helped at every turn.
