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.

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'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.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Would recommend this property.

It is in a very convenient location close to 5th ave and the beach.

Marco the Manager was very helpful to us carrying our bags up the 3 flights of stairs and answering any questions we had, he also organised a transfer from the airport for us for US50.

We found the bed in the master bedroom quite firm as we are used to Tempur memory foam bed at home.

Air con worked great.

Good shower pressure although the showerhead could do with a descale but it still worked fine....(we only used the master)

There is some building work next door (in finishing stages) and we could here hand tools like hammers etc from 745-8am, no heavy machinery though thankfully.

Laura the owner promptly returned our paypal deposit on our return home

Reserve This Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

I did extensive research comparing different properties in the Playa del Carmen area and if you are looking for a two bedroom, the search is over. Just pray that your dates are available and book it!

The condo is beautiful and comfortable and the rooftop deck is unbeatable. We ate breakfast and had happy hours and watched thunderstorms roll in from under the palapa on the deck!

It's walking distance to everywhere you want to go. We did a day tour of Tulum and Coba and were able to walk to a pickup point. The beach nearby is beautiful and clean. Seriously, we cannot say enough good things about this place so I'll just move onto the owner and the manager.

The owner is so easy to work with and helpful. She was great at corresponding with us and gave great recommendations for eating out in the area (Cueva del Chango for breakfast and Como Como for "an unforgettable dinner" -- and dinner at Como Como lived up to the hype!)

The manager was always quick to respond to email for any questions we had and booked our transportation to and from the airport. Which worked out great! Just be sure to remind your driver to call the manager when you're on your way so she can meet you there when you arrive (ours forgot and we waited just 15 mins for her to arrive; not a big deal but avoidable).

If we get back to Playa we will absolutely stay here again and are already telling all of our family and friends to stay here as well.
