About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Lomas Mariposa Condominiums are located on 42nd Street between the famous 5th Avenue with its eclectic mix of restaurants, shops and bars, and the white sandy beaches of the Mayan Riviera. Penthouse Mariposa 103 has 2 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one main and one ensuite), a large living room / dining room, a full kitchen & a laundry room.

Start your morning with a delicious fresh cup of coffee in the morning breeze of our rooftop deck and enjoy the sounds of Playa del Carmen. Enjoy a home made breakfast of fresh eggs, bacon and fresh orange juice. Or give yourself some time off and enjoy your breakfast at one of the many restaurants on Fifth Avenue. One of our favourite places for breakfast is Cueva del Cango (Monkey Cave) where you are served freshly made juices, fresh eggs and style and many other healthy choices. Cueva del Cango is 2 short blocks from Lomas Mariposa.

After a late breakfast, walk to the white sandy beaches of the Mayan Riviera and relax to the sound of the waves lapping the sandy beaches. Read your favourite book while watching morning joggers and midday walkers. Enjoy the scenery. Walk along the long beaches in the warm waters of the Caribbean. The beaches are usually crowded going South but virtually empty going North.

Stroll back to the condo and cool off in the freshwater pool located in the center courtyard. Enjoy your favorite cocktail, fresh salsa & chips on the roof top deck and enjoy the remainder of the day in the diminishing heat of the sun sipping a Margarita.

If you love to cook, we have a full kitchen with many amenities. Or you can stroll along 5th & 10th Avenues where you will find many restaurants with various offerings from Argentinian Parilla (grill steak) & Italian dishes to Lebanese & Thai food.

After a lovely dinner, enjoy an evening stroll on 5th Avenue. Splurge on a Haagen-Dazs ice cream or a Starbucks capuccino. Stroll back to Loma Mariposa for a gentle and relaxing back rub, sipping your favorite wine and enjoy your dreams of the Mayan Riviera.

About Joe

We are a professional couple and our children are grown up. We now have lots of time to travel and enjoy ourselves.

Joe purchased this condo in 2006

Why Joe chose Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen has miles of beautiful white sandy beaches and a large selection of restaurants from all over the world. Shopping in Playa del Carmen is great. It is also close to Cancun which has a large international airport with lots of flights from major cities in North America and Europe. Playa del Carmen has year round warm weather and friendly people. It is located close to historical places such as Coba and Tulum and close to ecological parks such as Xcaret and Xelha. Downtown Cancun is only an hour North by bus and Cozumel is only a 30 minute ferry ride from Playa del Carmen. Playa del Carmen has lots of activities for all ages.

What makes this condo unique

Lomas Mariposa Condominiums are located close to the white sandy beaches of the Mayan Riviera where you can relax under a palapa, have a massage, snorkel, scuba dive or parasail. You can also rent a Sea Doo and ride the waves. We are also close to the famous Fifth Avenue where you can dine and shop to your heart's content. Lomas Mariposa Condominiums has a private pool and a roof deck for use by all our guests.

Quiet, but near all the action

  • 5 of 5

A great, large property near all of the action of 5th avenue, but far and quiet enough to get a good nights sleep. Highly recommend for anyone looking to stay in PDC.

Beautiful, clean and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

We loved everything about it from the quiet location to the short distance to the main tourist areas. Couldn't ask for a better place. The only thing that needs a HUGE update are the mattresses. In both rooms they are so solid that it literally hurt our bodies to sleep. I've always prided myself as someone who could sleep anywhere but the ground would have been softer. I tried putting a king size and a double sized mattress cover folded up under my sheet for some sort of relief but it still didn't work. I have a bruise forming on my hip from trying to sleep on my side. Please, please, please look into either new mattresses or mattress pads for both rooms. That will be the only thing that will keep us from returning.

Other then that it was one of the best experiences of our traveling lives.

Owner's Response: Dear Zira, Thank you for your review. Our research has shown that most people prefer a firm to medium mattress versus a soft mattress and we never had complaints about the firmness of our mattresses. However, we will follow up with your suggestion and add mattress pads to our mattresses. Again, thank you for your review and suggestions. Best regards, Joe & Margaret

Roomy Condo, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at Loma Mariposa condo #103. There is plenty of space and a beautiful pool in the courtyard. This condo is only 1/2 block from 5th Ave on the northern edge of 5th. There are so many restaurants and shops to visit so close by. In the other direction, it is an easy 3 block walk to the beach. We rented lounge chairs/umbrella at Encanto Beach Club, but the condo does have chairs and an umbrella if you wanted to take them to the beach. The rooftop terrace was nice for hanging out wet clothes (condo has a washer but no dryer). There is a slight ocean view from the rooftop deck through a gap between other buildings. The best part of this condo is the price and the location....very reasonable. Lots of privacy and clean. Owner Jeff and property manager Volker made our stay effortless with great communication and lots of info about the property and the area. Everyone was so friendly. I would highly recommend this condo for 2-4 adults (sofas in living room were large, so could accommodate 2 children also). Note: this condo is on the third floor with no elevator, but we got used to the walk up very quickly. We felt very safe in this neighborhood.

Wonderful Condo, Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5

The Condo met the expectations of the advertisements and pictures on the website. The owners' service was excellent. They provided us 8 pages of information, including contact information for a driver to and from the airport! There is a natural foods store and coffee shop (Ah Cacao) right around the corner. We walked to the beach and used the swimming pool daily. If you go, you must eat at Los Aguachiles! We will definitely return!

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband, ten-month-old son and I definitely enjoyed our stay in this condo! The location is fantastic, a stone's throw from 5th avenue with all the great restaurants, and just a few blocks from the beach. Joe (the owner) and Volker (property manager) were both very attentive and helpful. They made our trip a breeze. The complex is small and secure with parking available if you choose to rent a car. It has a nice little pool which is a great place to cool off after walking home from the beach or lunch. The condo is very spacious, well equipped, and clean. It is on the third floor which I didn't realize until we arrived, but this is actually a perk as there are no noisy upstairs neighbors and it is a quick flight of stairs up to the roof top terrace.
