About Steve Leddy

I grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and still call it home, but my home away from home is Playa Del Carmen. We get to enjoy the best of both worlds; the beautiful summers in Minnesota, and the stunning winters in Playa Del Carmen!

Steve Leddy purchased this condo in 2012

Why Steve Leddy chose Gonzalo Guerrero

We've been vacationing in Playa Del Carmen for many years, always dreaming of buying a property here, and finally did it in 2012. The beach, fabulous turqoise water, shopping, restaurants and nightlife will bring you back year after year.

What makes this condo unique

We decided to buy the condo in Margarita's II location becuase of it's great location; we're so close to the beach, 5th Ave., Grocery Store, restaurants, bars, nightlife...the location just can't be beat in terms of being close to everything!!

Muy buena!!

  • 5 of 5

Nuestra experiencia en el departamento de Steve fue excelente. El departamento es tal como aparece en las fotos, está muy bien ubicado (tranquilo, pero cerca de la Quinta Avenida), con súper a poco más de una cuadra y todo lo necesario para estar a gusto.

Pero lo mejor fue el trato de Steve, siempre tan amable y dispuesto en sus respuestas (además de la gentileza de poder desocupar el departamento más tarde de lo acordado), y de Eduardo, y su hermana Susana, que nos recibieron (y despidieron) muy gentilmente allá y estuvieron disponibles para nuestras necesidades.

Mejor imposible, volveríamos sin dudar.

Nice Condo, fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as advertised, everything you see and read on the condo page is spot on. I'm not sure you can get a much better location, it's so convenient to the large grocery store a block away, as well as, many restaurants, bars, nightlife and of course the famous 5th Avenue. The condo building is quite and the pool is very nice and so relaxing. When we come back to Playa, we hope this place is available!

Great place, great location! Beach at walking distance.

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and well looked after. The pool area was always kept tidy and well maintained. The administrator looked after us and sorted any problems during our stay. Every local amentiy is nearby and the famous 5a Avenida is very close too!

A very relaxing and convenient place to stay in Playa del Carmen.

Definitey a good choice

  • 5 of 5

Sitting at the kitchen bar at Steve's just before checking out seems a perfect time to offer another review confirming those previously submitted.


> We are repeat renters at Steve's. We prefer this to an all inclusive or a hotel.


> The location, amenities nearby (grocery stores, restaurant, banks), and the well equipped kitchen makes this an ideal spot.


> Margaritas quiet hours are respected. It is great place for children. The pool is ideal and the beautiful beach is about 4 interesting blocks away. Steve has 2 backpack style beach chairs too and if you go early chairs and umbrellas can be rented at Mamitas beach.


> The beds at 209 are clean and comfortable, the bedding and towels are maintained, the bathrooms sparkle, and all appliances work well. Everything is cared for and clean..

> The palm fronds (seen in the VRBO picture) offer some privacy and shade from the hot afternoon sun. This time there was a little green iguana who sat on a frond, intriguing our grandchildren.



> The TV works fine but we have never attempted the DVD/sound system. Since we had our personal electronics the TV was all that we accessed. The condo WiFi works but sometimes the whole Playa system is slow.


> The pool is vacuumed daily, and all areas around are swept as needed during the day. The temperature of the pool depends a bit on the weather but looking at the number of residents in the water the pool is perfect! In the condo there are 2 pool noodles and a couple of inflatable pool toys.

> All you need to bring is clothes, bathing suit and sunscreen.


> There is a small reasonably priced Hotel Plaza Maya just just across the street from Margaritas 2 and some our family was very comfortable there when the condo was full. It is like an extra bedroom. The nearby restaurants are considerably less expensive than those on 5th and the long term residents here always seem happy to share where is best.


> Steve and Eduardo are very responsive and certainly have everything set up to please guests, and pleased we have been. We do not hesitate to recommend 209 and we look forward to another visit sometime.


> One reviewer suggested a drying rack. Now there is a drying rack in the utility room.


> Thank you Steve and Eduardo.
