|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
Cozy one bedroom condo very close to the beach in the newest and most attractive inn-area of town. Just where the famous 5th Avenue ends with all its restaurants and shops. However, the real attraction to this romantic apartment is that it is located only steps away from the best beaches. Go to the left and have the beach all for yourself. Right in front is the best beach club in town. Canibal Royal, or decide to go right towards downtown and pass all the famous beaches (Mamitas beach, Las Palapas etc.) All within 5-10 minutes walk.
The condo complex has a very lush and green common pool area with sun chairs and BBQ area.
The apartment has its own designated parking lot with security 24/7 in case you decide to rent a car to go and see the nearby ruins of Tulum or Chichen Itza.
I arrived to Playa del Carmen in 2000 from Denmark, felt in love with Playa del Carmen and started the local dive shop Dive Mike in 8th street between 5th Avenue and the Ocean, and bought a few condos.
While running the dive shop I started a property management company, Vimex Condos which I sold 5 years later. I still run my own units with help from a property management couple, Jamie (Australia) and Manuel (Mexico).
Michael Bolt purchased this condo in 2006
Living full time in Playa makes you appreciate living close to the crystal clear Caribbean Ocean, but also make you appreciate that it is quiet once you are at home. This condo offers it all. Steps from the ocean, 2 minutes to restaurant and shopping area yet totally quiet once you are back at the condo.
We only could stay a week but this apartment would be great for any length of time. Floor above ground floor, overlooking pool area - better location than some others in the complex. Air conditioning worked very well. Washing machine and dryer in the unit and endless supply of hot water if needed. A few minutes from the quieter Coco beach just north of the main Playa beaches. Up and coming north end restaurants were wonderful. Very friendly managers and residents both in the complex and the neighborhood.
The apartment was clean and practical for 3 persons in a quiet neighborhood at a safe distance from the noisy and busy tourist main street (la Quinta). The beach is 3 minutes away and again the noisy part of it is further away which is good. The place does not really have a view though. The condo has a nice pool to relax (but do not forget mosquito's at night). The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. We would recommend this place if you want to go to Playa.
My husband and I rented for 2 months. We enjoyed our stay very much. Jamie & Manuel were very helpful and if there was a problem they responded to our emails immediately. The condo does need to be updated. The furnishings are worn and well used as are the kitchen utensils and bed linens. The area is very quiet at night yet we were within walking distance to 5th Avenue. We liked the fact that the beach was a very short walk from the condo. We felt very safe walking at any time of day or night. Jamie gave us directions to several fabulous restaurants! My favorite was the fruit stand with fresh squeezed orange juice daily! MMMM Good!
Lovely condo very close to beach and 5th ave restaurants. Michael was responsive to all of our questions prior to our trip, and Jamie and Manuel were incredibly helpful during our stay. All of Jamie's suggestions for restaurants and food stands were spot on! The condo itself was very comfortable for the two of us. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return soon!
We absolutely loved our honeymoon stay!! We were here for 3 nights and enjoyed it thoroughly!! Michael is great and even surprised us with a special gift for our honeymoon 😃 There is a bottled water counter top dispenser that was very useful, dishes and utensils were all there and very clean. The space has 2 balconies which we loved! There is an amazing modern bathroom with lots of hot water. There is even a laundry area if you need to do laundry. There is ample drawer and closet space and a nice large living and dining room area. We loved the proximity to everything on 5th avenue without being in the middle of it all. We had the best vacation here and will definitely be back!!
Newest area of Playa del Carmen in the end of the famous 5 Avenue and steps from the ocean.
