About laura rubio

This is a family business so we really take care of details. We love Mexico and all nature in general so we have an ongoing green program certified by MARTI (Mesoamerican Reef Tourism Initiative) a partner of Conservation International, WWF and Coral Reef.

We have always loved travelling but not so much big hotels that keep you apart from the real experience of the country you are visiting. Then we discovered the world of vacation rentals and we were thrilled! We certainly enjoy great spaces, a lot of freedom, our own full kitchen. Having a kitchen is the perfect reason to explore the place looking for local foods, beer or wine, getting to know the local vendors and produce... it is great fun! We enjoyed condos so much that we decided to build our own and offer them to families like ourselves, and travelers with a more independent and adventurous taste. Big hotels and all inclusive are definitely cheap but in a vacation rentals we felt free!! We could eat out and splurge or prepare a picnic basket and have lunch in a beautiful spot, no hurries, no more rice please! It has been a wonderful way of really knowing the places we have visited, exploring the less touristy places, meeting wonderful persons we would have never found in a resort. We have travelled to several countries in this way and it has been a fantastic experience. We hope to offer the same for you, enjoy Playa, really get to know this wonderful part of Mexico, the place and the people, you’ll love it!

Why laura rubio chose Gonzalo Guerrero

Playa del Carmen is just 60 mn south of Cancun which is a very well know beach destination, with many flights available from major US and overseas companies. Though near Cancun, Playa still has the flavor and relaxed atmosphere of a small town. For some years now it has been chosen a home by people from many parts of the world with a taste for nature, beauty and creativity. Playa has become a little 'melting pot' with its own 'little Italy', many folks from France, Argentina, Germany, Holland and much more, which makes it possible to enjoy and authentic 'éclair au chocolat' or state of the art cappuccino. It is such a charming location with wonderful restaurants, shopping and vibrant nightlife and, of course, absolutely beautiful beach. What makes this apartment very special and charming is that we built it and decorated it ourselves, not professionally as many others around, so you´ll have this feeling of authenticity and local flavor that we believe is part of the travelling experience.

What makes this condo unique

One of the best features of this condo is you can walk everywhere easily and within minutes! Forget about taxis, walking at your own pace, or rent a bike!

We designed the apartments so you wil feel at home, comfortable and in a beautiful atmosphere. Groceries are very close also. Each apartment has a comfortable private terrace with a hot tub. The most important for us was that each apartment be private (no terraces facing each other), and I was thrilled to add small touches of Mexican art. The condo is not professionally decorated because we want our guests to feel at home at not in a hotel, and we prefer to add Mexican details so you have a real experience of the place. On the top of the building is our favorite spot: a roof top solarium with a plunge pool and ocean view. The view is spectacular and there is always a delicious breeze. We have beach chairs so you can sunbathe in a more private environment, or read a book in the afternoon after a day at the beach.

The apartments are fully serviced, which means you’ll have daily maid service: thoroughly cleaning, change of towels and linens, delicious bath amenities, your room will be tidy and fresh everyday without you having to do anything (after all, these are your holidays!). All of this completely FREE. We have a wonderful manager on site and she will be there to help you with daily matters, give you the best advice for dining, shopping, excursions, you name is a wonderful host. We are in the center of Playa del Carmen which is a lively and fun city! Everything is close by, including night-life which is great because you can walk back at night in all safety. We have know Playa for a while and will be thrilled to recommend great places! Contacts us! Mi casa es tu casa!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed on the bottom floor, left hand side, I believe it was room #1. Our balcony faced the inner courtyard. Huge bed room. Huge living room. Perfect for my girlfriend and I travelling with my teenage son. Both couches in the living room converted to beds. There was some noise from the clubs at night, however they have done everything they can (double windows) to block out sound, so it is barely audible (in the room which we stayed.) Staff was amazing. Julio was always friendly and ready to answer any questions. A warning for some, these suites do make you feel very independent, do not stay here if you expect to be waited on. The front of the building is shared with a Montreal bar. It will be busy and noisy if hockey is on! (Always friendly people everywhere though.) Great proximity to the tourist strip, beach, and restaurant. 10 minute walk away from the ferry to Cozumel and the bus station.

Generally nice, but hot water stopped working

  • 3 of 5

The unit was nice and clean. The roof top pool was nice and private. The hot water stopped working half way through our trip, so we couldn't use the hot tub for that portion of the trip. the hot tub was the primary attraction of the unit, so that was disappointing. The location was very convenient to the shopping and entertainment district and the beach.

Owner's Response: Thanks Kevin for your review! It was a pleasure hosting you. We are glad that you liked our apartment and our location. We had an issue with our hot water system and we had to perform an emergency replacement, it was difficult but now is all working perfectly so everyone may enjoy the beautiful private terrace with hot tub.

Beautiful Suites

  • 4 of 5

These Suites are located in the heart of Playa del Carmen, half a block from the beach and one block from 5th Ave. Close to the restaurants, banks, supermarkets, Walmart and Mega. Walking distance to the Main Plaza, Bus Depot and Ferry to go to Cozumel. The building itself is clean and very safe. It has a beautiful small pool on the roof with a superb view to the ocean. The rooms are all different and decorated with good taste. All gear towards the ecological concept. Our room had a manicured interior garden with a beautiful terrace and tub to enjoy. The only drawback was the noise at night. Even though this building is protected against noise, thick double windows and doors, still you hear it. At the beginning was difficult, but after couple of nights we got used to it. We stayed around three weeks. Veronica, the Manager, was very attentive, efficient and helpful and the staff was always making sure that you felt like at home. Excellent and Beautiful Suites!.

Owner's Response: Thank-you! It was such a pleasure hosting you for sunny vacations in Playa. We always enjoy having our guests stay for several weeks, we get to witness how they gradually relax and connect with the rythm of the tropics... the beach, the ambiance, the weather the smiles of the people. On the day of departure they all have a great tan and a beautiful smile on their face... we remodeled our ocean view sunroof and are constantly working to adding more details to make your stay more pleasant. Thank-you so much for the review! We look forward to seeing our snow birds next year!

Perfect location, very beautiful apartments.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment building is vey well located, near beach and also near 5th avenue, but still on a quiet street. Everything you need is nearby. We had problems with noise coming from the clubs, but the problem was solved immidiately by the manager Julio and we got the room, where bedroom was very quiet. Apartments are well equipped and nicely decored. They provide also beachtowels. I strongly recommend to have a room with seaview, it just made our vacation perfect and if we go back we defenitely have the room on higher floor and with seaview. The rooftop pool is perfect for smaller children and is also ok for adults. The owner Laura and manager Julio are very friendly and helpful, many thanks! I would recommend these apartments to everyone!

This place was perfect! Very nice decor, friendly staff, great prices and wonderful location! I definitely want to go back soon. I was there for a week for my honeymoon, October 11-18. I would definitely choose it over a resort or another hotel. Very private and close to everything you need! thanks!

We are only one block from the 5th avenue where you´ll find a very large choice of restaurants and fun and relaxing places for a beer, coffee, icea cream, great shopping, super fun nightlife. Xcaret and Xelha Parks are a must-see, as well as Tulum Mayan Ruins. If you like shopping you´ll find many stores on the 5th Avenue, with local handcrafts as well as international brands.
