About Verna Stilwell

My husband and I live in Pennsylvania, USA and have two lovely daughters. Rich is an Engineer and I work in rental properties management. I grew up in Guadalajara Mexico and still have family in that area so I consider myself to be a part time Mexican :) My sister who was born in Mexico, co-owns the condo with us. She also owns a business in Mexico; Dancefield, a dancewear manufacturer and retailer.

Verna Stilwell purchased this condo in 2011

Why Verna Stilwell chose Playa del Carmen

Our family started vacationing in the Riviera Maya around 1999. Once we spent a week in the area, we were spoiled and no other beach would do. We tried everything from the hustle and bustle of Cancun to the most deserted areas near Tulum. We loved spending evenings walking around Playa del Carmen but did not like the idea of staying in town with the noise and the crowds. We searched virtually every mile of the Riviera Maya looking for the perfect combination of a sandy beach, a high end location, not too many crowds, cleanliness, safety, a beautiful pool, no loud blaring music with entertainers trying to get us to the the limbo and a short drive to the best dining opportunities. When we saw the property under construction we decided that this was the perfect spot for us.

Having grown up in Guadalajara where you can find the finest Mexican artisans and designers, we decided to become heavily involved in the decorating and selection of furnishings for the apartment. My sister and I spent months viewing photos of custom and hand made furniture and then spent a couple of weeks walking around the towns of Tlaquepaque and Tonala visiting the various factories and design shops for our final selections. Our goal was to have a clean and contemporary look combined with both typical and modern Mexican touches. We hope to have achieved that.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our guest was unsuccessful in trying to post her review so she sent it to me after several tries. Her comments as copied from her e-mail below: Thanks Carolle

"Hi Verna,

I have tried to send the following comment:

I staid two months. The condo was immaculate. The staff was helpful ans respectful. Great beaches and pools. For those who like to play golf, the Gran Coral is a very nice course. It's a perfect place to spent long vacations with your family. A very quiet, peaceful and safe place. To me, it was just perfect. I WOULD RATE IT: 5 STARS and more

My family and I spent really nice vacations here in Mareazul. Everthing was perfect. The staff here was exceptional and also the people at the Gran Coral (golf). They made me feel important. The service I got was at a level of a 5 stars hotel ... I do not have any complaint, it was just perfect.

Fresh , Clean , Spacious

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property . The apartment was beautiful , so clean & had everything... the pool and beach area was just perfect for our group of 2 adults & 4 kids. ( 13 -9) They literally played all day and never bored of it .. we often popped down to the nearby beach club for either breakfast or a snack .. Kids loved their daiquiris ..

It’s only 10 mins by car from playa .. we took a trip

most nights into the town & always found parking without a struggle .

Fernando was great , even though we had no issues he responded immediately to any of our questions .

We will for sure be back .

Thanks Verna ...

"The greatest condo ever"

  • 5 of 5

I traveled here with my parents, sister and nephew and the condo was a great fit. Super spacious! The luxury details, balcony and security staff made our stay a very pleasant and secure one. We cooked in, took food to the private beach area, and some days we reserved lounge chairs and ordered food from the beach club. There are many options, after the beach we would enjoy some time in the beautiful pools. There is a mini market by reception where you can find almost anything you need (closes at 9pm). I sent over a grocery list before traveling out there and they had everything setup upon arriving from our late flight. They kept the grocery receipt for us and included gratuity. Super easy and perfect since we just wanted to relax in the gorgeous condo our first night. This location is perfect for families looking for peace and quiet. On our last day we took a cab ride downtown (which was about ten minutes) and walked around and did some shopping. We did one excursion, we chose Xcaret. Life changing, amazing! Stay for the show at 7pm, or don't go at all! Yes, the show is that AMAZING!!! Prepare for a long but worthwhile day of swimming in the cenotes and enjoying a lunch buffet of delicious seafood included in the entrance ticket. The only problem we had is that we could not stay any longer. My nephew described it as "The greatest condo ever". Which means a lot being that he could not stop talking about our last year's NYC experience, which he has now forgotten about :) We love Mexico and will return and recommend this to our friends and fam!!

Relaxing, quiet and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 10 days in April with 2 adults and 2 kids (7 and 9). The apartment was just as advertised. Very comfortable and well equipped. The complex was exactly what we hoped for. Not too busy, so there was always space and loungers available at the pool or beach and away from the crowds and noise of playa del Carmen. It was only 10 mins in the car to the centre of playa del Carmen for shopping. Easy access to the main highway for all the attractions. Overall, it was just what we hoped for and we really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect vacation spot (especially if you have kids)

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay here. We were 2 couples and 2 toddlers and it was perfect. First the apartment: Very clean and modern. A huge master bedroom and bathroom with king size bed. Bigger than my whole apt in Brooklyn! There was a safe in the master closet which was great to have. The second bedroom was on the other end of the apartment which was great as it gave each of us our own space. The kitchen is modern and very well equipped. Loved the terrace.. we spent most of our time there when home. The only complaint about the apartment would be there is no bathtub which is preferred for kids but otherwise everything was amazing. Loved having the bottle water available. Great wifi speed. Verna was a pleasure to deal with and answered all questions within the hour each time. She had amazing restaurant recommendations and was so welcoming it felt like we were at home. Next are the grounds: this property is stunning. Beautiful landscaping with fountains and hammocks. The star of the show is the pool area though. This was the most impressive (in size and setup) pool I have ever seen. The kids were in heaven. Plus the fact that there is only about 40% of apartments that are occupied, it means you almost have the pools to yourself. Amazing. A few steps further was the beach. Very nice and not too crowded. Great to have both options. The compound is 10-15min from center of Playa which was perfect for us. Gave us the peace and quiet but proximity to downtown. Best of both worlds. We will definitely come stay here again if we ever come back to Playa del Carmen. A wonderful find!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two wonderful weeks in this amazing condo. It's lovely, spacious, clean, well cared for, ideally located with a corner spot and full of light and great views. The staff are prompt, professional and accommodating and the owners are completely lovely. The location is ideal if you want to be in Playa del Carmen but away from the nightly ruckus and burgeoning crowds. Still, we walked and biked to and from town many times for fun, for groceries, for exercise. You can drive to Akumal in under an hour for snorkelling/diving/caving etc. Perfect for a couple craving space, quiet and ease or a family looking for a safe, comfortable fun place to stay. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, the pools are enormous and never crowded, the beach is perfect, kept clean and secure. We've been travelling to this part of Mexico for over 20 years now and have moved around looking for the perfect spot....we have just found it! Highly recommended! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Mexico. The condo was amazing. Well appointed, we wanted for nothing. Marco and Ellie greeted us graciously upon our arrival. We spent a lot of time on the balcony overlooking the beautiful grounds. The pools were the perfect temperature and always kept clean.

Be aware that this condo is a 10 minute cab ride ($50-150 pesos) or a 40-45 minute walk from Playa del Carmen restaurants and food. There is a small Beach Club on the property to get food but it has limited selection.

Don't miss El Pirate or El Fogon restaurants - El Pirate has the best shrimp and whole fish. El Fogon is tacos etc. but great street ambience.

We found a fabulous Venezuelan place a couple blocks off 5th Avenue. Kaxapa Factory the service and food amazing.

The owner and manager were super helpful at every turn - before and during our stay. I could not have asked for more.

Thank you
