Why Tracy Redwood chose Playa del Carmen

When we first visited Playa del Carmen in 2005, we knew we had to be a part of it, a place that we could forever come to, whether to visit, live and work or retire to. The tranquility and friendliness in Playa surpasses many other place we have visited. I think this is due to the 'people' here that are from all over the world and come together to make Playa such a memorable place, filled with dreams that turn to reality. Playa del Carmen will always be a very special place for us. We remodeled and designed our penthouse so that it would be a special place for our guests to enjoy and relax in. Our goal was to make it as comfortable as your home away from home, while providing the amenities that you are used to. Because our climate in Playa offers year round outdoor engagement, we thought it was particularly important to furnish our 1000 sq' private solarium as we would an indoor living space, offering seating, dining, lounging and romance. Many friends that we have come to know seem to have the same story-they come to Playa for vacation and never leave. Playa is truly a gem, what more can I say, experience it first hand and you will be convinced...come and enjoy paradise!

What makes this condo unique

The Meridian (completed in 2006 ), is a 36 unit / 3 story (the roof-top pool is on the 4th level with ocean views to Cozumel) condominium building with amazing floor plans, beautiful gardens and a roof top pool. There are only 12 PH units, each with direct private access to the pool area. When we first looked in the area in 2005, we realized that it was very isolated and thought of that as a plus, as far as privacy- which it did turn out to be. Now 6+ years later, it's still a quite area and very desirable, yet 5th Av and the beach are less than 2 blocks away. With the North End's constant growth and demand, there are many more restaurants, bars and stores nearby - yet the Meridian is still a bit off of the main drag and therefore continues to offer peace and quiet, while maintaining it's proximity to whatever it is one may desire. Our building is small enough get to know all of the permanent Ex-Pats, as well as the repetitive guests that come to enjoy Playa year after year for months at a time.

Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults & 2 teens) recently stayed for 2 weeks in Tracy's stunning penthouse condo. The photos and previous reviews are accurate. From our initial inquiry to our departure, Tracy was prompt, professional, personable and simply lovely to communicate with. The condo is luxurious and well appointed. The location is a quiet retreat, yet so close to both the best parts of the beach and 5th Avenue. The rooftop truly is a private oasis. We would highly recommend this property. Thanks for everything, Tracy. We can't wait to return!

Paradise in Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in this luxury penthouse condo over the recent holidays. From our first contact with Tracy over email to our fond good byes when leaving, we were extremely impressed with Tracy’s attention to detail and to her commitment to making our stay a stellar one. Emails from Tracy were prompt and full of practical information and advice about our vacation. Once at the condo, we were awed by the luxury accommodations and the attention to every detail in decorating and in providing extras for our comfort. The condo is spacious and, frankly, spectacular, particularly with the additional space in the penthouse for sunning, its private access to the pool and for entertaining. The condo’s proximity to 5th avenue (1 ½ blocks) provided all the restaurants, cafes and shops we could desire. Close by (1 ½ blocks) was a lovely beach and a bit farther were beach clubs for sunning and/or indulging in margaritas and food on the beach. We are so grateful to Tracy for booking our driver, Fernando, who was always prompt, always informative, and always friendly and charming. There was absolutely nothing more we could have asked for in this terrific condo. We are extremely grateful to Tracy and Georgios for a wonderful vacation !! We will return again as soon as we can!

Incredible penthouse........incredible vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived, including the weather!

Tracy had greeted us upon our arrival to let us in and show us around the penthouse.

She had also arranged to have it semi-fully stocked, as we knew we would be too tired to go shopping.

The place is amazing and has all the amenities you could possibly need, including a brand new 50" Smart TV - which was great for the kids to watch their Netflix! Playa dell Carmen is a beautiful, quaint town with endless shopping, dining and strolling on the famous La Quinta Avenida (which is a cobblestone street, free of vehicles).

We really enjoyed the beaches (which are just one block away) early in the mornings and late in the afternoons.

Our favorite entertainment was the water parks - we were lucky to visit two of them due to the incredible weather.

The Tulum ruins were very interesting and being situated in front of the beach, gave us the chance to go swimming as well. Whatever we did each day, we were always looking forward to return to our 'Home Away from Home' and just relax on the private rooftop. Already planning our trip for next October...

Thanks again for your hospitality and incredible penthouse!

Anastasi & family

You wont want to leave the condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home away from home. We enjoyed not having to leave the condo to enjoy the lovely weather!! The location made it very convienant for walking to all the shops and restaurants, as well as the beach. The kitchen was very well equipeed. The bedrooms had lots of closet and drawer space! It was also nice that beach towels and chairs were provided, along with umbrella's. The owner was very prompt in answering any questions we had while we were there. The private pool was amazing. Very nice to be able to relax at the pool without large crowds!!! The patio was a perfect place to enjoy our morning coffee and a book! WE also took full advantage of the outdoor jacuzzi and shower! The condo is decorated very nicely and modern. I would love to recommend to anyone new to the area, to check out the french restaurant Chez Celine. That was an alltime favorite of ours there! Also, if you are on a budget, consider using the "collectivo's" to get to places like Akumal for very very cheap. There is also a very great italian restaurant only one block from the condo that we enjoyed several times~ my only dislike was the firmness of the beds. Maybe they could provide a foam mattress pad for those who need softer beds....enjoy this condo, its amazing!~!!

Wonderful quiet condo!!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect home away to relax, enjoy local cuisine, explore beaches, and yucatan sites. The condo is in an excellent location only two blocks off 5th avenue in the north end. It is a very easy walk to great restaurants, cafés, bakeries, bars, shops, and the beach.

The condo is quiet, well equipped, and very well maintained with quality furnishings and personally chosen art. The 2nd floor solarium area was a welcome and comfortable retreat.

Tracy, the owner, communicates promptly and is always available for recommendations. If this condo is available, book it. You will not be disappointed! We sincerely appreciated the opportunity to rent this property. Thank you, Tracy. - Susan

Our Meridian PH is located on 40th St. at the North end of Playa and faces an unobstructed view of jungle to the South and ocean views to the East. Just 1.5 blocks to the East are the beautiful powder, white sandy beaches where you will find restaurants, live music, beach volleyball, incredible snorkeling (as Playa del Carmen sits in front of the 2nd largest reef), kiteboarding, beach clubs, jet skiing and Hobie cats to rent. A short, 20 minute walk along the beach to the North brings you to the Grand Coral/Mareazul Beach Club, which features a pool, beach chairs and beds, as well as a full restaurant/bar. On your walk back, (just after Coco Bay's Reef Club) stop in at Cannibal Royal's 3 level, '50's style beach bar and restaurant, which serves fantastic seafood creations, as well as homemade pizza. Las Palapas beach, just to the South offers a cozy, sunken beach bar on the sand with Happy Hour daily. If you're in the mood for something more 'trendy', don't miss Mamitas Beach Club, which often hosts nightly live concerts-at no cost! Another great beach venue is Wah Wahs restaurant and bar, which features live music daily, outstanding baby back ribs and always has the big sports game on their gigantic TV. La Quinta Avenida (5th Ave), less than 2 blocks from the PH is filled with restaurants on both sides, all the way to the end of 5th (20 blocks) offering every type of cuisine imaginable, including wine bars, wine pairing menus, a World Beer Club, French, Italian, Argentinean cuisine, to name a few. You will find different options from Uruguay to Germany to Tokyo and of course Playa offers some of the best authentic Mexican cuisine. Some of my favorites include: Piolas for Pizza, Cuevo de Chango for breakfast + atmosphere, Diez for Argentinean meats, Como Como for excellent food with a menu that changes frequently, La Casa del Agua for it's International cuisine and ambiance, Ah Cacao is a must for their home-made brownies and chocolate mousse, La Bodeguita del Medio, a lively Cuban restaurant, just up the street on 5th and 36th featuries live music, salsa and to die for Mojitos. Although not on the main drag, do try Aguas Chiles on 38 St and 25th Ave - I recommend everything on the menu. Most of the restaurants are open for dinner as late midnight. As far as fun, local bars go, Dirty Martini (1st Ave/10th St) is great for Martinis and mingling and Fusion on the beach at 6th St has live bands, food and fabulous mixed drinks. Kitxten on 5th and 26th is known for it's live rock bands. For a real treat, be sure to visit 'Alux' a real underground cenote (cave) restaurant and bar - don't forget your camera! La Quinta Avenida has an eclectic array of shopping from local and traditional hand-made pieces to funky and upscale items. If your passion is snorkeling or scuba diving be sure to take the ferry (Juarez and beach pier) to Cozumel for the day-as it's noted to be some of the best in the world! An alternative is Soloman Bay in Akumal (about 30 minutes South of Playa). Should you fancy water parks, the Riviera Maya offers the most exquisite, natural water parks I have ever experienced: XPLOR is fabulous for zip-lining, cenotes and adventure, XCARET offers cenote tours, a zoo, botanical gardens, several restaurants and their 'famous' Mayan show in the early evening, XEL-HA is a magical place surrounded by water and jungle and a park where you can swim with the dolphins. When you're tired of eating out, do your shopping at MEGA or Walmart; both offer groceries like you would find at home and are only a 15 minute walk and a 5 minute taxi ride back. DAC on 30th Ave and Constituyentes is a must for fresh fruits and vegetables, spices and homemade bread. Another option on CTM (46th St and 15th Ave. on the North side) is Esmeralda's-here you will find fresh fruits and vegetables and they will make you fresh squeezed juices, as well as fresh coconut water; the new 'it' water. Transportation is a breeze in PDC; one can walk almost anywhere, taxi's are everywhere and 'cheap' (do ask the price before committing), there are plenty of rental car places for adventuring outside of Playa and there's always the 'colectivos' (public transportation) that will take you virtually anywhere, including Puerto Aventuras, Akumal and Tulum for about $10USD. Playa has several tour companies who will arrange to pick you up and take you on day excursions. Planning a trip to Cancun, take the ADO air-conditioned bus. The beauty of the Riviera Maya is that it offers endless pleasure: you can enjoy it sunbathing at the roof top pool, bronzing on the pristine beaches, zip-lining in the jungla (jungle), cave diving, spear fishing or simply enjoying your margaritas in your private solarium jacuzzi. Once you've experienced Playa, you'll be sure to visit again! So...enjoy and indulge our paradise! For more detailed information to suit your personal needs, please advise and I'll do my best to suffice.
