Zazil-ha Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1250 sq. ft., roof-top oceanview

Located in the most unique architectural luxury condo building in Playa, this condo is a renter's heaven. Close enough to walk to all attractions. 200 paces in one direction will take you to the white sand of Coco beach while 200 paces in the other direction will have you at 5th Ave, a 1.5 mile long stretch of hip spots: Stores, clubs, bars, restaurants and coffee shops and a casino.

Heliko is a gated condominium with 24hr Security, with only 24 units, making it an exclusive, quiet, relaxing choice for the perfect getaway.

An elevator makes it easy to access with luggage and groceries and will also take you to the roof-top pool and hot tub where you will be able to relax on lounge chairs.

The condo is beautifully decorated: Marble floors and bathrooms, granite top kitchen counters, comfortable mattresses, Wi-Fi Internet access, colorful kitchen dishes and utensils.

3 separate air condition units make sure the temperature is always comfortable: One unit in the living room and one in each bedroom.

Bar stools at the kitchen island make the perfect seating for a quick breakfast for 2 while the marble dining table seats 8.

The living room features Italian leather furniture, an L-shaped sofa and a comfortable high-back armchair, as well as a 42” HDTV with cable service and a Blu-Ray player.

You’ll also find a guide to attractions and the best dining in Playa.

The Master bedroom has a king size bed while the guest room bed could easily be set-up as a king size or two twin beds (our maids will set the beds up to your specs prior to your arrival).

The beach features a Beach Club, restaurant & bar, as well as a sea-doo rental and massage tents.

The condo is equipped with 4 beach chairs, a zero-gravity chair and a large beach umbrella which could all be mounted on a large cooler-on-wheels and wheeled to the beach.

About Niv Ben-Haim

My wife and I are business professionals who visited Playa del Carmen and simply fell in love with the place. We have invested time and money in our luxury condo to make sure it's the perfect home-away-from-home to us and our guests. We spared no effort and expense in decorating and equipping it with all that's required for the perfect getaway.

Niv Ben-Haim purchased this condo in 2012

Why Niv Ben-Haim chose Playa del Carmen

Heliko is a unique condo building in Playa del Carmen, which is like no other place around the caribean sea: A quiet town yet with party spots, no high-rise buildings, unbelievable year-round weather and a huge selection of great dining spots and beach locations.

What makes this condo unique

Extremely close to beach in a quiet area of Playa del Carmen, open concept architecture of the building, gated and safe environment with 24/7 security.

Excellent place to stay at!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week and this place was perfect! The condo was very nice and comfortable, it includes everything you'll need for a great vacation. The condo is in great location as its close to 5th Ave and several restaurants as well as the beach and a 7/11. The place felt safe overall with a security outside all the time. It was easy to communicate with Niv and he was really helpful. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone and would even stay here again!

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Niv ' s condo for 10 days and had an amazing time. It was in a great location, walking distance to the beach and 5th Ave. Felt safe the whole time we were there. This condo was clean and equipped with everything you need. We would definitely recommend this place and we would go back there in a heart beat. Niv was always great at getting back to us promptly.

Thanks a bunch

Wonderful Condo & Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed eight days at Niv's condo. The condo provided plenty of space for our family. The condo is in great condition. The elevator is nice for bringing groceries, and luggage to the condo. Our family always felt safe whenever we were walking on the beach, on 5th ave., and on other streets in Playa. The complex is secure with front and back entrance that takes a code to enter.

Niv is a great owner! He always responded promptly to my many emails I sent to him. Based on my correspondence with Niv, it is safe to say he really cares that the individuals who uses his condo has an excellent stay. I hope Niv's condo is available the next time we travel to Playa. His wonderful condo and willingness to respond to my emails allowed our family to have a great time on our vacation.

Misc. info -

A water cooler is provided in the condo.

A great Italian restaurant is out the front gate, cross the street, and walk toward the beach 1/2 block. Next to the 7-11

Very few English speaking channels on the television (Niv is looking into the possibility of adding English speaking stations).

There is a small convenience store out the front gate, and turn left. The store is located on the corner of the building next to the condo complex.

Prior to arriving, Niv will provide you with great information regarding the condo and the area near the condo.

Best Host Ever

  • 5 of 5

Niv is the best owner we've ever had. He is super responsive and the few concerns we had were satisfied professionally and immediately. His condo is very well appointed and looks much better in person than in the pictures. There are very nice little touches all over the place.

We stayed for 3 weeks and could easily have stayed 3 more. Thank you Niv!

Condo is Beautiful, Clean and in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My 14 yr old daughter and I stayed at this condo for 7 nights and we absolutely loved it. I have been renting through VRBO for 4 yrs and this was one of the nicest places that we have stayed in.

This condo was very clean and all of the furniture, kitchen (appliances, dishes, pots etc.), bedding and towels were all high end and much nicer quality than the other condos we have rented in this area. The building itself was well kept plus it has an elevator which was very convenient for luggage and groceries.

We felt very safe walking to the beach and/or 5th Avenue. There is a security guard and the building is gated with access only by code. It's in a great location just a few minutes to the beach and a few minutes in the opposite direction to 5th Avenue. Niv, the owner, was very easy to deal with and always quickly answered all of my emails. We hope to stay at this condo on our return visits and would definitely recommend it.

Beautiful Condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a great choice for someone who wants a lovely condo close to the beach but at the quieter end of 5th Ave. The unit has absolutely everything you need for a long or short stay and with the well appointed kitchen you can make your own meals if that is your thing. The building staff were all very nice and the building is gated but we never felt like the added security was needed. We were only 4 (2 adults + 2 teenagers) but it could comfortably hold up to 3 couples. The beach is very close and the condo even has beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and other goodies to make a day on the beach easy and fun. We will definitely be trying to book this one on our next trip out there!
