About Owner

As a family of 4 we are small business owners who enjoy being able to just get away. Playa del Carmen has been one of our favorite spots for many many years.

Owner purchased this condo in 2010

Why Owner chose Gonzalo Guerrero

Playa del Carmen is a small town with an international feel. The beaches are beautiful. 5th Ave has many great shops for looking or buying and many cafes and night spots. You do not need a car to enjoy Playa del Carmen.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy morning strolls to get breakfast out on 5th Ave. while winding down from our normally busy lives. We enjoy the sand and the beautiful clear turquoise ocean for sunning and swimming. The 2 pools are great on our rooftop pool shared by only 8 other condos. The sunsets are beautiful over the view of the town of Playa del Carmen.

Wow what a great location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful modern spacious 2 bdrm and 2 bthrm apartment. Perfect for our week in Plaua del Carmen. Kitchen has everything you need and the apartment is modern and tastefully furnished.

Great roof top deck and pool for the sun lovers.

8 block walk to get groceries or 1 block to the local convenience store

The owner and manager are friendly professional and helpful with the local info.

Would certainly stay here again and recommend this apartment to anyone visiting playa del Carmen. One slight downside is if you like fresh air and are a light sleeper the traffic noise and lights from the recreational park might be a bit of a challenge But 5 out of 5 all around. A wonderful week in Playa del Carmen.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We have tried to make DOCA 303 a place that we can feel at home in and am glad you seemed to feel that way too. Playa del Carmen is truly a special place and we are happy to have a place to enjoy it when we visit. We very much appreciate your visit.

Amazing Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Playa Del Carmen and it is now my absolute favorite place in Mexico. The condo was clean, comfortable and had all of the amenities you could want. Gary, the property manager was also quite helpful with information. The pictures on the web are very accurate; the place is as beautiful as they look. There are two tennis courts (with lights) right across the street which we loved. Very close to the main street with tons of great restaurants and shops. The rooftop pool was like having our own private pool; we only saw two other people the entire 8 days we were there. The beach is also convenient. It was truly a perfect vacation for us and we will return for sure! The Owner was a pleasure to work with and she made everything easy with the charges, deposits, etc. I highly recommend this condo for your vacation; you will not be disappointed.

Outstanding Rental- Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

It's taken me a while to write this review but I wanted to make sure to share my thoughts. I'm a committed VRBO traveler - a much more personal experience at prices better than hotels / resorts.

My wife and I scheduled a week stay at the condo. Gary - the property manager - picked us up at the airport and took us directly to the condo (for a reasonable price). The unit itself is beautiful - the pictures online reflect this - very clean and modern. We loved the private deck off the unit and also the rooftop pool - quite the bonus! We were frequently the only ones at the pool and even when others were there it was never too crowded.

The location was great - a block from the main drag and across the street from a soccer field. It’s close enough to everything yet not noisy at night.

Gary and Sharon (the property owner) were excellent. Both were available when needed. Mid-way through the visit we decided to extend our stay we liked it so much.

We will definitely return - next time we plan on bringing two of our kids (we just used the second bedroom as storage on this trip).

Personality Plus!

  • 5 of 5

What a great condo. The owner is very easy to work with and the property manager was excellent. I have stayed in this unit twice in the past 6 months and absolutely love everything about it. The furnishings are comfortable and you really do feel as if you are staying in someones home. The kitchen is well equipped with all modern appliances and there are tons of extras including snorkel gear and pool floats. There is even a selection of beach bags so no need to bring your own. The beds are super comfortable and there are lots of towels supplied as well as a change of sheets. The balcony is very large and we spent most evenings sitting outside watching the sports or the action on the street.

The pools and ocean view from the rooftop is priceless and with only 9 units in the bldg you will usually have it all to yourself. You are surrounded by economical places to eat and you are only a short 5 minute walk from the beach. Security is provided and we always felt very safe. The manager of the unit lives in Playa del Carmen and will provide great info for you to get the most out of your visit.

We have stayed in many condos over the years and have yet to return to any of them. We love this place so much that not only have we stayed there twice this year but we have already booked to go back next spring! Fantastic owners, fantastic property manager and a fantastic condo.

Thanks so much guys and see you in the spring!

Had a fantastic stay at the penthouse condo! The owner and property manager were extremely helpful and the unit was perfect for us. The location to everything was amazing as anything we wanted to do was in walking distance. The condo was in perfect condition with high end accessories. The rooftop pools were amazing with a view of the ocean. Will be going back again.

Fantastic Vacation, Best Location and Condo Is Exactly As Advertised and Pictured

  • 5 of 5

This was my 1st trip to Playa del Carmen and I absolutely loved it. My 12 yr daughter and I stayed at Tres oh Tres and it was the perfect choice. This was my 1st time renting through VBRO and I am so glad I did. Sharon made the reservation process very easy and returned my full security deposit within 1 week after leaving. Gary was very helpful; since I was not renting a car Gary gave me several options for transportation to and from the airport. Best info Gary gave me was to get pesos from ATM (the max 3000 pesos - around $250 USD) and pay for everything in pesos not dollars. You save a lot. Condo was very clean and had everything that we needed. Beds were very comfortable and each room has its own a/c which cooled very quickly. Best location - one block from 5th Avenue and 4 blocks from beach. Did not hear any noise from 5th Avenue. Rooftop pool was very nice. Only negative is that there is no view of beach just stadium and other rooftops but there are so many positives that this did not matter much. We used a tour company to go to several Mayan sites and snorkeling - "Mayan Explorers", they were amazing and every reasonably priced. Our favorite restaurant was just down the street at the corner of 5th Avenue and Calle 32 - Bar dello Sport - great Italian food and much less than many of the other Italian restaurants. This was one of my favorite vacations and we will definitely be back again.
