Condo, 2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 4 total); 2.5 Baths; private balcony
One short flight of stairs up from the complex's grassy courtyard and cooling pool, you enter our recently remodelled 1200 square foot condo which overlooks both. Opening the door you find a spacious open-plan living/dining/kitchen area. Filled with soft filtered light from the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors leadibpng out to the balcony, the condo has traditional Mexican decorative touches integrated alongside sophisticated contemporary furniture.
We have renovated the condo several times in the past seven years and have created a calm sophisticated environment. Spacious and airy, it is beautifully furnished and decorated in both Mexican and International styles. We have avoided the usual basic tourist decor: it is instead - to quote others in the complex - quite ‘beautiful.’
As I am an artist, we have focused our attention not only on the ambiance we wanted to create but especially on integrating artwork into the space. You will find traditional Mexican folk art and pottery pieces alongside drawings and etchings by internationally known contemporary artists. We have recently started to collect drawings by local Playa del Carmen artist Roa, whose work is handled by galleries here and in other locations in Mexico, New York and London. (see his work at http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/jacobo-roa.html)
The two large bedrooms are located off the living room. They are away from either of the complex's street sides which makes them immune to any disturbance from street noise (which might be a problem in other rental units). Each bedroom has its own attached full bathroom with which includes a large walk-in shower. Both of these rooms are furnished with queen size beds with luxurious Sealy pillow top mattresses.
The living room and each of the two bedrooms have a ceiling fan as well as new individually controlled high-efficiency air conditioning units to keep things cool and comfortable when the sun is at its hottest.
Our bright, spacious and exceptionally clean second floor unit, B208, has everything you expect from a quality vacation rental property but at a rate that is nowhere near that of a full service hotel.
We are sure a relaxing week or two spent in our condo will take you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday work life, so that you can just get on enjoying your vacation and not worry about much of anything at all.
We know you will find Playa to be as fantastic as we do - and are very sure your time spent at our condo will help ensure you do so.

What makes this Condo unique
Location, location, location! Not only is our complex centrally located in Playa but our particular condo is centrally located in the complex. Unlike several less expensive condos in our complex which face a side street or have no view of the pool or courtyard whatsoever, our condo has a great view of both. Along with our photos that show you the courtyard and pool generally, we also include a photo that shows you the condo view from the balcony as it really is. Additionally, we are on the quiet side of the building away from the street. Within a few blocks of our condo, you will find numerous local restaurants of exceptional quality serving everything from the best cuts of meat (the famous 'El Fogon' which is written about in most guidebooks is just two blocks from us), to the freshest of seafood (the best ceviche in town is also just down the street), to organic smoothies and meals served at Playa's only 'health food' market (again, just two blocks away). As we are also in the area of Playa where European tourists and especially Italian tourists like to stay, you will find all kinds of bistros and fine European restaurants within a short walking distance. There are several Italian dining establishments just down the street and numerous coffee houses as well. Just one or two blocks away from our condo's location in Playa, you will the Mega hypermarket, which is similar to Walmart only larger. Their in-store supermarket is phenomenal as well as their selection of clothing, electronics, houseware, etc.. If Walmart is more what you want, it is only four blocks away. Playa's two main attractions are its beaches and Fifth Avenue. Mamitas Beach is the closest beach to our condo - just a few minutes walk away. It is one of the most sophisticated of the beaches in Playa where you will find clubs and restaurants right on the beach each offering beach loungers rentable by the day or hour.

Perfect for us
Our stay at margaritas condo was just perfect for us. The condo had everything we need...we were cook8ng because of our boy...he is very picky ...so we need to cook at home! The bedrooms very big...the air conditioning was very cold which is very good...but we kept it off almost all the days...and off for all the nights...nights were very nice cool😊� 3 bathrooms 2 showers. Clean. Very beautiful outside the condo...in the yard 👍� 8 min walking to mamitas beach. Everybody is guiding you to the beach😉� so all good! Oh ! One more thing CLaudio the supervisor of the condo was very responding to all my questions! 👍� thank you guys Claudio and JACK!
This bright and spacious condo is conveniently located within 5 minutes walk to 5th avenue, and approximately 10 minutes walk to Playa Mamitas. The condo is very well furnished and has everything a traveller could want to cook, entertain, clean etc.. There are 2 spacious bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom. The quiet location contributed to restful sleep. The laundry machine was a definite asset, and there was a parking spot for a rental car. This is a family-friendly location, and our toddler found several other children to play with while there. We found it curious how many fellow Canadians we encountered in neighbouring condos. We would not hesitate to recommend this condo to friends and hope we might one day return ourselves.
Excellent 2 bedroom Condo- home away from home
We have stayed for a month in this comfortable Condo the previous 2 years and are booked in for another month in March of next year. The security personnel are friendly and helpful when you need a hand. The condo is clean and well equipped with appliances, tv, internet and more. Location is perfect as there is a Mega store a block away, fish markets, vegetable markets, restaurants and laundry services within 3 blocks. The condo is equipped with a new washer and dryer and the balcony is a great place to relax. This 2nd level condo is quiet and the pool is refreshing and well maintained. Most of the residents in the condo complex have been coming back for several years and usually stay for 3-6 months. The beach and Mamitas Beach Bar is a leisurely 5-7 minute walk. 5th Ave is 4 blocks away and the street that the condo is on is quiet and not subject to a lot of traffic. The property manager is very helpful should you need any information on Playa or any concerns with the condo. The condo owners are very friendly and decorate the condo with beautiful paintings, pictures and ornaments. We have stayed at other places in Playa and this condo is the best.
Thanks for the compliments, Vern and Cheri. We are happy to have you return every year, as many others do.
As you say, it is all about the condo, the location and its amenities. Our favourite restaurant in all of Playa is just up the street three blocks north, Aguachilles. The freshest and most favourable ceviche anywhere!!
We are also glad you appreciate the decor of the condo. As an artist myself, I always want to have paintings, prints, interesting ceramics, etc. in my living environment. In the condo we have included not only traditional Mexican arts and crafts but high-end contemporary Mexican art as well. I think this is a feature that separates our condo from many others.
I am sure you are anticipating your month at the condo in March of 2016. Enjoy the sunny days and warm tropical nights. (Writing that last sentence makes me wish I was there right now!!)
Perfection. Exactly what I was looking for!
Myself and a friend wanted a nice place near Mamitas to stay for BPM for a few days. I contacted Jack on vrbo, and he made my experience easy. The whole place is completely immaculate as can be. The pictures really do speak for themselves. I especially loved the balcony and kitchen. My favorite part about the place probably was due to the fact that the Mega grocery store was a block or two away. The best. Thanks so much.
Thanks for the positive review Ryan. I am glad we could make your rental experience painless and that you enjoyed the BPM festival while here. Hope to see you return.
very nice condo
Very nice welcome by Alex (manager) with all informations needed. Clean, spacious, well appointed
condo private on second story. Very secure with 24 hres security staff. 10 minute walk to Walmart or
to beach and 5 minute walk to Mega and 5th avenue. Transportation simple (bus or taxi) close to condo.
Can't be better located, will certainly return if condo avaliable. Thank you for a very nice month of vacation.
Yvon: It's great that you and your family enjoyed your time in Playa. I agree that the location of our condo is perfect for doing all that Playa has to offer. Too bad we could not accommodate you this year as you requested but perhaps next year.
This was the perfect condo for our vacation. Great, safe, central location. Security staff are friendly and helpful, and the property manager Alex is great. The condo itself had everything we needed for our stay. I would highly recommend this great condo for anyone wanting to stay somewhere much better than a hotel. Close to Mega and Walmart for shopping and just a short walk to the beautiful beach in Playa. Can't wait to book again for our next stay!!!
Cathy, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Hi Cathy. We are glad you liked our property manager Alex. He is a great guy and makes checking in and out super easy. He now has an assistant, Sammy, who is just as nice and as energetic. We think thumbs up on the location as well.
We first arrived on the bus from Cancun, not knowing what to expect but having heard a lot of positive things about Playa del Carmen from word of mouth. Within minutes of walking down Avenida Quinta (Fifth Avenue), the main tourist pedestrian street, my wife and I turned to each other and said; “This is it” Our feelings about Playa back then ten years ago have not diminished at all. On the contrary they have been strengthened. From a lazy little fishing village, it has grown into a sophisticated tourist mecca with luxury boutiques, fabulous restaurants, great beach clubs and endless activities to enjoy. Days spent suntanning on the white sand beaches or engaged water sports are contrasted by nights spent dining at or perambulating along Agenda Quinta which now is the exciting and even glittering focus of all things Playa. A few blocks west of Quinta is our condo. Situated in an ultra-safe location in the tourist zone, we purchased it seven years ago after looking at many others around town. We liked its more quiet location slightly off the main tourist streets, the ambiance of the complex, the pool and grounds, the super cleanliness of everything, the spacious condo layout itself, the nearby shopping and dining…I could go on.
