When we were looking for a vacation home in Playa Del Carmen the biggest consideration was to find the property that would make the best vacation rental and we believe we found this with the newly constructed El Faro luxury suites. El Faro is truly unique in that it has the best combination of everything people are looking for in a vacation rental. Being beach front is a great benefit and not only is it on the ocean but its central location in Playa is simply unmatched. Being located on the beach in the heart of Playa at the famous Lighthouse on 10th street is absolutely perfect. You may leave your car behind as you can walk to everything and transportation is excellent. El Faro is situated on a long stretch of the beach so it is like you are tucked away in an oasis right in the heart of all the action. The famous 5th avenue is so close that you probably won't even break a sweat on the short walk up there even on a hot day. But don't worry even if you do start to perspire the ocean is literally only a few steps away waiting to cool you off. Or if you can't make it past the hot sand to the beach you can stop and take a swim in the amazing pool. All joking aside the setting is quite spectacular and you simply won't find another property in Playa that has such a large pool and garden area that is so close to everything and is situated on such a large section of the beach.
The condo itself has one of the best locations in El Faro and has breathtaking unobstructed views of the ocean. There are direct ocean views from the master bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen and large terrace. The condo is new and is tastefully decorated with a little Caribbean fun but overall it is fairly neutral and has a universal appeal. There is a full size kitchen that is completely equipped with everything that you would expect. Everything is new and high end with nice little touches down to the 300 thread count sheets, however, the condo still maintains a relaxed and comfortable feeling. You'll find all of the amenities to make you feel at home such as air conditioning, wireless internet, flat screen TV's or you can just sit outside on the terrace listening to the waves roll onto the shore and watch the people and boats go by as the quiet breeze whispers to you that this is nothing like home at all...
TIPS: You may want to click onto the 'View Calendar' icon on the right hand side of the page of our listing to check on the availability for the dates you want. You may also click onto the 'View Map' above the calendar to see the exact location of El Faro.
We hope you are able to create some great memories in Playa just as we have and we would be thrilled if you were to choose our condo to use as your home when you visit this special place.

Hi, My name is Shawn and I am originally from California and went to school at the University of California San Diego where I first felt the mysterious draw to the ocean. I now live in Vail Colorado where I was drawn over fifteen years ago by an equal passion to the mountains and skiing. My real estate investments and skiing have kept me in Vail, however, I have never been able to shake the fondness for the ocean. Now with a place in Playa I am fortunate to be able to escape to the ocean once in awhile and live in the mountains that I enjoy the rest of the time.
Shawn purchased this condo in 2010
I chose Playa Del Carmen as it is easy to get to and yet still allows me to experience something so much different from my life in the mountains of Vail Colorado. A four hour flight from Denver allows me to put on a T-shirt and shorts and breath in the ocean and experience the good natured people and the character of Playa.
I can only use the condo myself once in awhile so I wanted to find the property that was the most appealing for a vacation rental. Although the property is new I think it will be the most popular property in all of Playa Del Carmen because it is so unique in that it is a high end property with a central beachfront location in the heart of Playa with a large pool area and right on the ocean. I haven't seen another oceanfront property that offers so many benefits in Playa so it was a natural choice.
It is nice to be only steps from the famous 5th avenue to walk to all of the great shops and restaurants. We have found it more relaxing to have everything so close so you are not running around the whole time while on vacation. It is also ideal to be able to walk to Walmart to stock up on groceries and bring something back to the condo to BBQ out on the terrace. We recently put a washer and dryer in the condo so this has enabled us to travel with lighter suitcases.
Just wanted to add to the barrage of positive reviews. Shawn's place is kept up great and is in such a perfect location. Enormous pool, right next to the beach, next to great shopping and restaurants, a block from an active taxi stand (went to Xel-ha and Xcaret by cab and was super easy). Easy walk to Cozumel ferry (Fury Catamaran was a great time and a great value). And don't stay here without a walk to the Mega grocery store. Wal-mart was nice but I liked Mega better.
Stayed with my wife and our 5 kids from 1-17. Fun for all. That chair made of sand on the beach is ours. Have a seat! :) No complaints and the management staff is extremely responsive. Internet wasn't working too hot when we got there. Called them and they fixed within an hour. We never stay in the same place twice, but we are seriously considering revising that policy for this place. Thanks Shawn!
I saw Shawn's Condo on an web app and it has everything I was looking for: close to the beach, a big and nice pool, few steps from main street, and more... It was perfect. Definitly I want to go back, and Shawn was amazing too, He is very friendly, accessible and always checking everything was okey. Also the staff at El Faro was very welcoming. Thanks Shawn for let us staying in yout Condo.
We loved El Faro! Never been to Playa before but decided some time ago to spend Christmas there this year with just the 4 of us for a family get away vacation-very happy we made that decision. The place is beautiful, great central location and weather was incredible. Shawn (owner) was very nice to work with and made the reservation process easy and was quick to respond to any questions.
We watched the sunrise every morning from the beach, kids enjoyed the pool and the ocean everyday. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for the four of us. Walking distance to anywhere in Playa or there are taxis less than a block away if needed. We just got home and I'm already trying to figure out when we can return! Great family vacation - True paradise!
I apologize for my late review, but feel the need to do one as we had the pleasure once again, yes our fourth time, to stay at Shawn's amazing condo. As so many others have said, Shawn is so friendly, easy to communicate with, accessible and always follows through. The condo has everything you could need, the beach is right there, staff at El Faro have become friends and 5th Ave is at your door step. It's hard not to go back next year, but we're going to explore a different part of Mexico, but when we return to Playa we will definitely be in touch with Shawn!!
Thanks again Shawn.
Michelle and family
While I have been to the Cancun and Playa del Carmen area many times, it is during our last two stays in Playa Del Carmen that I have had the pleasure of staying in Shawn's condo. Shawn has made the entire process of booking and staying at his place so easy and enjoyable that I cannot even fathom the idea of staying anywhere else while in Playa. The condo is super clean, organized, and great for a family of 5 ( with room to spare)! The condo's location also provides the benefit of a small town feel while being in the center of town where we can easily walk to shops and restaurants. Overall, I highly recommend Shawn's condo at El Faro since it has everything you can hope for a relaxing, yet exciting stay. Shawn, thank you so much providing such a great property, at a great location, for a great price....and for always being such a joy to communicate with. Until next time....which will be very soon!
We loved your condo & it has the most perfect view of the ocean. We enjoyed every minute we were there. The condo is clean, spacious and in a perfect location. We were able to walk every where. It is a perfect place to be for all ages. Thanks for letting us share your lovely place. We hope to return soon.
We are located on 1st Avenue and 10th Street which is right on the beach in a central location of Playa Del Carmen and just a half block to the famous 5th Avenue where you will find all of the shopping and restaurants just a short walk away.
