What makes this condo unique

We're in the perfect location!! Only 10 steps from 5th but just far enough off of 5th where it's not loud at night. The beach is only a 2 minute easy walk. We're right in the middle of the best part of Playa!

Our stay here was lovely, comfy and met all our needs. Marino was an excellent driver and we rented his car for the day..great price and no issues. This condo was perfect. Have already recommended it to people. Far enuf off main street that noise isnt an issue at all. Our wedding was perfect and will be forever times...

Location & Vibe Are On Point!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this condo to stay at with another friend while we were in PDC for a few days. What a wonderful spot, did not disappoint in the slightest. The condo is on the 3rd floor, so you are perched above the streets with a great view of what's happening below, but high enough to not hear all the noise.

The condo is located just feet from 5th Avenue. You can stumble out the door and be in the heart of the city. But staying inside is lovely, too! There are two bedrooms, each with a very nice king-sized bed. The living area is great - it's an open floor-plan so the kitchen, dining and living room are all combined. We found some great entertainment options on the TV and enjoyed being able to cook some meals and snacks from home.

The best part of this condo though is the private rooftop deck! There is plenty of room to lounge in style and comfort, both in the sun and in the shade. The cool pool was a great bonus, too!

All in all, this place is a total gem. The owner was great to work with and the local property manager and housekeeper were awesome as well. I'm already saving up for my next trip and plan to stay at Casa Paraiso again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay😀򐀠Everything Kris said about the condo was true,no surprises. Location was perfect as it is half a block to 5th ave and a short walk to the Mamitas beach. The roof top terrace was very pleasant which we took advantage of. We would love to come back next year so thank you Kris
