About the property

Condo, Studio, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

This is the only penthouse studio in Haab and therefore the only studio in Haab with a rooftop terrace. No one else in the building has access to it. A 750 square foot terrace for you and only you!

With an ideal location between the beach and Fifth Avenue, this open-concept studio is perfect for a couple looking for an airy space with clean, contemporary lines.

AC & ceiling fans, marble floors throughout, a full marble bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen with granite counters and stainless appliances. There is also a washing machine & dryer, and an iron & ironing board in the unit.

With the convenient elevator you can enjoy the benefits of being on the top floor (4th floor) and not have to use the stairs while carrying your luggage or groceries.

You don't need a car but if you do rent one, I have a designated parking spot in the secure, underground parking.

Haab is small and quiet condo complex with only 24 units, located between 5th Avenue and the beach in the north end between calle 38 & 40. So, if you're familiar with Playa, you know it's only a few minutes stroll to the best beaches in town.

You're literally around the corner from 38th Street which is the nicest street in all of Playa with popular restaurants such as Piola and Cueva del Chango, and Trujillo's. Situated at the north end of Little Italy, you're just a few minutes walk from Chez Celine, Muelle, Almirante Pech, El Diez, That's Amore, Il Barretto, etc. The location puts you close to 5th Avenue but without the noise, so you'll be assured of quiet, peaceful sleep.

Playa is perfect for lazing on white beaches & swimming in a warm sea, shopping & dining on 5th Avenue, or staying out until the wee hours & enjoying the night spots, all while meeting an eclectic mix of people from around the world. Of course, the area has lots more to offer; you can visit Mayan ruins, explore a cenote, scuba dive or golf and much more depending on just how active you want your holiday to be.

It's hard not to be charmed by Playa's vibe!

Great Property that is currently hampered by nearby construction

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for nearly a week and loved the property and location. That said, there's currently construction of a high rise immediately behind the property, so the private rooftop was essentially unusable during daytime due to the loud construction and workers having direct line of sight down onto the rooftop. Additionally, the Hot Tub wasn't clean nor were there instructions on how to set it up. Otherwise we loved the condo. A/C was plenty able to keep the unit cool, and Piola on the corner was a great restaurant/bar to have. If you're looking for a place to stay in Playa that's a bit north of the major tourist areas closer to 12st street, look no further than this option!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words despite the annoyance of the construction. I appreciate it and honestly apologize for the inconvenience during your stay. I have completely refurbished the jacuzzi and it's now like new. In other good news, the developer has told me that the construction on the adjacent lot will be completed by May 2017. Best regards, Chris

A hidden gem private yet close to everything you need to relax in Playa

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in Playa numerous times and this location is my favorite spot. It close to 5th avenue the restaurants and shops and only a couple blocks from the beach. The rooftop patio is perfect for practicing yoga or relaxing in the plunge pool during the day or star gazing at night. It is in a quiet location with excellent amenities. Thank you.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Chris's condo was the perfect escape from snowy Boston. The location is perfect, walking to everywhere and in a great area. Peace and quiet and very relaxing , especially on the beautiful roof top private deck with a wonderful ocean view. The office manager was there for us and everything we needed was there. Having a washer and dryer was a true plus. TV is very limited, but we were out most of the time and not in to watch tv. Also 2 low beach chairs were easy to carry to our favorite spot at Coco Beach.

Wifi worked well and we had Mexico phone service which waorked the best on the deck. Perfect vacation and wanted to stay longer then 2 weeks!

Our accomodations were better than anticipated. The studio was amazing and it was quiet during our whole stay. I love that it was located at the end of 5th ave away from all the noise and hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything. Close to the beach and places to eat and drink. Really enjoyed our stay and hope to return!

Still excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in this unit, and it's just as great as ever! It's very well equipped, with everything you could need in the kitchen, and having a second bathroom, washer and dryer, and jacuzzi upstairs is awesome. The view from the roof is amazing, and it's nice to have this private area to hang out in. It's surprisingly quiet, with not much street noise at all, and it seems to be geared towards adults, which we really appreciate. The property management company Chris uses is very accommodating as well. We can never seem to manage to make a pay phone call in Mexico successfully, so we had to contact them via email, and we were met at the restaurant on the corner to check in, with no problems. We find the location ideal; off the main drag a bit, but close enough to able to be where you want to be in a matter of minutes. We would love to stay here again!

1st stay in Playa

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed at this condo last week and had a very pleasant experience. I always worry with sites such as VRBO, but everything was just as it is pictured! This is definitely a great way to experience the area much more than if you were to stay at an all-inclusive. The location of the condo is perfect- we tried so many of the delicious restaurants that were only a few minutes walk from our door. Additionally, we used shuttle and tour services to go on adventures to Tulum, Akumal, Cozumel, Cancun and many other beautiful places. We felt completely safe and were able to get around very easily without a car. We also spent a few days and evenings just hanging out on our private rooftop or going to the beach using the beach chairs provided for us. Overall, a great experience if you are OK with cooking and cleaning up a bit on your own. It's also a huge benefit to know a little Spanish in this area. We would certainly recommend this place! Thanks!
