Overview

Zazil-ha Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Treat yourself to total luxury on your next vacation by staying at “Penthouse Coco Royal” located just a block and a half to the Caribbean's best beach in Playa Del Carmen. The building El Meridian completed in December 2006 has a rooftop swimming pool with views of the Caribbean ocean. The exterior is Mayan Stone and the interior very modern Italian with open-air living space. This penthouse is located just one block off the main street 5th Avenue (La Quinta), that has hundreds of restaurants, bars, shops, and boutiques.

This penthouse is a SE corner home with floor to ceiling glass windows that let the warm ocean breezes flow through the wide-open living space. The kitchen is outfitted with cherry Italian cabinets, granite, microwave, coffee maker, and all of the outfittings that your kitchen would have at home. The dining room has seating for 6 people. The main living room has all Italian designed furniture, television with cable tv, a stereo system with cd player, and a wonderfully large balcony that wraps around the entire main floor with a bbq.

There are two master suites, both with attached private full bathrooms. The master has a private balcony facing a rustic jungle paradise with exotic birds and butterflies. Both bedrooms have 400 thread count sheets and luxury linens. On the main floor is also a ½ bath and a full size washer / dryer. There are air conditioning and ceiling fans in every room in the house.

This amazing penthouse has a 1000 sq. ft private roof-deck with 4 person jacuzzi, outdoor shower, ½ bath, and wet bar with electricity for the blender to make margaritas. You enter this private paradise through an interior staircase in the main living room.

Maid service comes once in the middle of each 5-7 day stay week, and is included in the rental price of this Penthouse. As well, the manger is just 5 minutes away and speaks English so that any and all needs you have can be met. There is reserved parking in front of the building and a security guard at the main entrance of the building all hours of the night. Renting a car will give you the freedom to explore the town. You are however a 3 minute walk to the beach and a 4 minute walk to all of the restaurants on 5th Avenue. Just come down, breathe in the ocean air, and enjoy your relaxing vacation staying at Penthouse Coco Royal.

About Laura Pentecost

This is my second home in Mexico and my second property, I originally bought another condo 12 years ago and fell in love with the town. I have been enjoying Playa and the amazing lifestyle here for 12 years, and I am a Permanent Mexican Resident. I have been renting my homes on VRBO for 12 years. For all of my guests I provide my owners tips for a great stay, insider knowledge of the hotspots, and secret spots to explore that most tourists don't know about.

Laura Pentecost purchased this condo in 2008

Why Laura Pentecost chose Playa del Carmen

We are in a very residential part of Playa where it is quiet, and in the busy growing town of Playa it can be quite busy in allot of areas. This condo is one of only 4 penthouse corner condos in the building. Our location is fantstic because we are just a block and a half to the best beaches and a block and a half to the main walking street in Playa called 5TH Ave. There are more than 40 restaurants within a 10 minute walk from our condo! You do NOT need a car in our location!

What makes this condo unique

~Walk everywhere, no car needed

~2 Level Penthouse W Rooftop Swimmimg Pool

~Quiet location, no nightclubs or music at night

~Home is outfitted with Top Quality Furnishings

~Wonderful Owner and Manager to Ensure A Great Stay

~More than 30 Restaurants Within 5 Blocks

~Just 1.5 blocks To An Amazing Beach

Guestbook comments from the manager

We go on vacation often and have been to Playa more than 5 times. This is the nicest condo we have stayed in to date. It has very comfortable bedding, allot of space to relax, fantastic kitchen, and the rooftop is our favorite. That 4 person jacuzzi and a bottle of wine was our favorite way to view the stars at night after perfect beach days. We thought that the location was quiet at night, so the one night we wanted to party late we took a cab to the other side of town. We were happy that the condo was so quiet, you could hear the ocean waves at night. Perfect Holiday, thanks Laura you have a lovely penthouse. We will be back.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 16 days with our two teenage daughters. The condo was spacious enough that we never felt on top of one another, even on a few "lazy hang out and do nothing" days that we had. The condo is well appointed and everything worked well. We felt

very safe with the gated building and there was NO noise at all. The only thing we missed would have been some beach chairs and umbrella as the beach club gets pricey when you stay for an extended period of time. The location was optimal - short walks to the beach and to 5th avenue. So many wonderful restaurants within walking distance (Piola, de Local and the Pitted Date were some of our favorites!). Wal mart was accessible by taxi for about $5 USD each way. The guys at the tour booth on the corner (Alberto and Eduardo) were amazing and got us great deals on excursions - they were our go-to guys for questions about everything and anything!! Laura was very responsive to the very few minor concerns we had. Overall, I would highly recommend this property for vacation with family. We will definitely stay again!

Just lovely

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed the condo. Quick walk to everything...Beach, food, bar, taxi, shopping. Condo was clean and spacious. Rooftop hot tube was nice after long days of walking. The pool just outside rooftop was never occupied so it was like we had our own private pool as well:) Including the rooftop, four bathrooms...nothing more needs to be said! Owner was super accommodating and provided great tips for our vacation.

This condo is great! ! minute to the beach, 1 minute to 5th Ave, 4 restaurants and a great bar in 1 minute, you cannot get a better location. This unit at the quiet end of Playa but still in the middle of all sorts of shops and services. No noise at night from 5th at all. The condo is very spacious and comfortable, beds were great, and the furniture is very comfortable. The building, grounds, and rooftop pool area are immaculate, the staff at the building are very friendly and helpful. The owner , Laura is fantastic, we had a minor hiccup upon check-in that caused a bit of stress after a long day of travel, we were able to reach Laura by phone (even though she was on vacation in Arizona) and she took care of the issue within minutes, I cannot say enough about her. I guess the best recommendation I can give is that we are planning on going back!!!

I don't wanna go home!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi there

I came with my son and his buddy celebrating our monumental birthdays-21 and 50-

This place was so amazing I don't really know where to begin- ah yes,the transport service! Our driver was there when we arrived we were late yet they stayed and waited for us in a air conditioned van- playing, Guns n Roses and Bon Jovi- perfect!!

We met Marco there, your personal concierge. He is beyond helpful accommodating and just a really good person! He had such pride and was easy to get along with- he showed us the ins and outs dos and don'ts of the suite and then went on his way- We needed a few things and he was right there to assist- nothing special just opinions of what and where to go/do- Marco thank you. You are a true professional and gentleman!

The penthouse really folks look no further it was large enough that the boys went out and did their thing for BPM- they met some folks from LA there and invited them to the house- it was so cool that they were able to go upstairs to the 1000 sq ft rooftop deck, soak their tired feets in the Jacuzzi/tub- relax have pina coladas with their friends and I was not once bothered by sound or noises. It was truly the best part of the house- It has all the appliances you need- functional and efficient-the beds were so comfortable- towels and beach towels as you need them a security gate manned in the evening to the wee hours of the morning and great guys there to greet you! however I NEVER once felt nervous or worried for safety- Playa just didn't feel that way at all

The stores are within walking distance so if you find yourself out of rum...it's just 5 minutes away!

Fresh produce and anything you need- this condo is perfect for you-

There was a maid service that was included and boy was that nice- coming home after a long day of beach walking and playing to a perfectly clean home!

You tell Marco what day you prefer and she is there. Class Act!!

The beach literally 1.5 blks away- that sits next to fabulous resorts filled with the most infectious happiness of people- really all you do in Playa is smile and giggle.

There is nothing I would ask for or change with Laura's condo- people go there- it was amazing- I am already looking to book my next vaca with her-I have no need to even think about another location and will look forward to our next visit-

I hope this helps you make a decision- seriously all the luxuries of "home" you will ever need.

Cheers

Great Condo. Perfect location from which to explore Playa and environs

  • 5 of 5

Laura, the owner was very responsive when we were looking for a place. This was our second trip to the region with 3 young children (8, 10 and 12). Marco, the local manager, was very helpful several times during our stay; helped set up tours when I asked him to; and gave me space to set up other tours when we wanted to be more independent. The condo, as has been described, is as advertised. Very comfortable and beats hotels by a mile. Really nice location, just 2 blocks to Quinta Avenida and 38th St. which is the beginning of the walking areas and has a number of excellent restaurants. As a vegetarian family, Playa is limited (lots of pasta and pizza), so I made a number of trips to a supermarket (short walk). In retrospect, with 5 people, having a rental car would have been better (most travel was per person). I have rented cars before in Cancun and, other than the "hidden insurances", was quite easy. The condo has convenient off the street parking.

Owner's Response: Mark, thank you so much for your rental. I am happy to hear that you and the family had a fun trip and an enjoyable time at the condo. Condo VS Hotel - yes you get the room for the family to spread out and enjoy the different rooms and levels in the condo. It sounds like you used our fully equipped kitchen quite a bit, having that ability to prepare food at home makes the vacation more intimate. You are welcome anytime to return to the condo. We create a repeat renters discount as well. Best regards, Laura Condo Owner
