Playacar Condo Rental Photos and Description

on the water penthouse 2bedroom, 2-1/2 baths, sleeps 6 view view view

Imagine the best vacation you will ever have. It starts here. Close your eyes and imagine yourself sitting here on the your own private deck , the ocean sighing in the background and the warm breeze on your skin. You have found yourself at Fishermens Village located in the secluded, gated residential community of Playa Car Fase 1. This jewel of a property is located right on the white sand private beach and offers you the independence of a warm home based condominium supported by a full service boutique hotel. The property is an easy walk via the cobblestone streets past the ruins or along the wide and white sand beach, into the center of Playa Del Carmen. Great restaurants, stores and bars await your exploration. This is also where you will find the ferry dock that will take you to Cozumel for a day time getaway.

Our top floor unit provides breathtaking ocean views and is well situated in the center of the complex .The private deserted beach is steps from your door and includes huge canopy beds to relax on and perhaps catch up on the great book you have been dying to read. Our air conditioned unit boasts a fully equipped kitchen and two separate bedrooms. The master bedroom is located on the top floor, has a king size bed and a stunning view overlooking the teal blue Caribbean ocean. The second bedroom has a double bed with its own full bathroom and there is also an additional double pull out bed located in the spacious living room. 3 TV’s with cable are in the unit and there are two full bathrooms and one powder room. Everyone can get ready at the same time and hit the beach together.

The hotel side of the property is managed by the Sunset Group and provides you with all the amenities of a full service hotel that you would expect. Your stay includes access to a full service spa and a full gym. You can enjoy the water and then access the swim up pool bar for a thirst quencher. Wander down to the beach and there is the place to get your beach towels, take out a kayak, catamaran, bicycle or boogie board. There are two restaurants on site including one right on the beach so you never have to leave your canopy bed. You have an option to take an all inclusive package should you wish which includes your beverages and food. Room service is available right to your suite. In the lobby you will find a concierge and a car rental agent should you choose to go adventuring, golfing, exploring or shopping. Your location gives you a wonderful base from which to discover the beauties of the Mayan Riviera. Once you have stayed here you will never book anywhere else.

About Kathryn Lesosky

we are originally from Vancouver Canada and now located in Toronto. We started going to Mexico about 20 years ago and we fell in love with both Playa Del Carmen and Fishermens.

Kathryn Lesosky purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kathryn Lesosky chose Playa del Carmen

Here was the best of both worlds located right on the beach with a hotel on the property. It still is a small boutique gem in the midst of all the sprawling all inclusive resorts on the Mayan Riviera.

What makes this condo unique

We never tire of sitting on the deck and taking in breathtaking view. Relaxing at the beach with a great book and swimmng in the warm turquoise waters.

Wonderful Experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is a gem to work with. Responded right away to my inquiries about her property. Fresh fruit and wine and note on table for our arrival in Playa. Local rep. came by several times to check to see if we needed anything. Very kind and helpful woman.

The rental is beautiful, extremely clean and spacious. Gorgeous marble floors and bathrooms. Kitchen is well equipped with everyhing one might need. The view from the balcony is the best in the Fishermen's complex. Very quiet and peaceful environment. Lulled to sleep with the sound of the ocean. We never saw anyone else on the stairways except for cleaning staff.

Lovely one mile walk through beautiful neighborhood or along beach to Fifth Avenue filled with shops and restaurants. Fishermen's is idly located. Of all the beach areas north and south of the pier it is the most beautiful. Unfortunately the complex needs some upgrades which are out of the owner's control. The steam room never worked while we were there for 12 days, gym is lacking basic equipment and bikes are old and rusty. However, we had a fantastic stay at Kathryn's unit and would highly recommend her unit.

Best lcation in Playacar!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Playa for 21 years, and have stayed at the Fisherman's Village complex a few times. This front and centre unit was by far the best! From the moment you step in the condo you can see your ocean view. When you are blending some margaritas at the kitchen counter you can enjoy your ocean view....The dining and living areas are very comfortable and having Netflix was a nice touch in a country with few English channels! The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need, and a great supply of wine glasses!

We are not air conditioner people so we loved that the unit had screens on the windows and patio doors, not something you find in all condo's in Playa, which made it possible to leave the master bedroom window open all night so you could enjoy the sound of the waves lapping on the shore and the fresh breeze. The master suite is huge and very private with an attached ensuite and again gorgeous views! We find the size of the complex itself to be cozy, a beautiful pool area and the beaches in Playacar to us are the best in the area. The welcome fruit basket, flowers and vino were extremely thoughtful and appreciated. This is a top rate property and the owners are great to deal with as is their concierge Tara & Luis! We will definitely be recommending this property to our friends & family. While in the area make sure to try out Babe's noodle house for great Thai food & El Diez Argentinian restaurant for delicious arrachera! Day trips to Isla Mujeres is a must as well as swimming with the Tortugas in Akumal! Enjoy......

Wonderfully relaxing and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed in this condo for 7 nights and we enjoyed our stay very much. The condo is close to the ocean and is in an area without any high-rise hotels. The beach is groomed every day so seaweed isn't a problem. The condo is well equipped and the balcony gives you a front-row seat to the pool area and ocean. We used PayPal to book the condo, taxi and initial grocery order and I was glad this could be done securely. The hotel staff is very nice and the walk into town is safe and picturesque. The pool area was great and the Jacuzzi is working again. The pool chairs are reserved by placing a cabana towel on them, so get there early if you want a seat. They were all taken by 9am. Other than that, the place is very relaxing and fun. Highly recommended!

Wow !!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this condo for 9 nights and we extremely pleased with the accommodations. The photos, description and reviews by previous visitors are totally accurate. Tara and Luis, the owner's local reps, are extremely helpful and available to assist with information and initial food shopping support. I highly recommend you book this condo for your visit to Riviera Maya.

Wonderful Sister Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 weeks at this beautiful condo. This condo is located in the center of Fishermans with an amazing view. The master bedroom is large with a view. We loved opening the window at night to hear the ocean. The bathrooms are spacious and beautiful. The living room has the most beautiful view. Our favorite thing is sitting on the balcony watching the ocean. The condo is 3 flights of stairs so that is something to consider. We love exercise and being above the resort for the best view so it was great for us. The location is wonderful in beautiful Playacar. We walk everywhere!

We were welcomed with a bowl of fruit, flowers and a bottle of wine. This was a thoughtful touch! Tara checked in to make sure everything was perfect.

I can't imagine a nicer place in playa! This is our 8th trip to Playa and 2nd to Fishermans.

The resort has some amazing employees who work really hard to keep the resort clean and a fun place to be.

Thank you Kathryn and Terry for sharing your amazing condo. Kathryn was great to work with and we are hoping to visit again next year!

Tropical luxury without the luxury price

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed with another couple for 8 nights. As we crunched the numbers of our trip we couldn't believe what a steal we got on this fantastic resort. The rooms were always so cool and welcoming when we would return from a long day of playing. The kitchen had everything we needed and there was plenty of linens to go around. We gave the upstairs King loft to our friends and we took the full size bed, which was plenty of room for my husband and I. The staff at the resort was very welcoming and helpful and we enjoyed spending a couple days doing the games and activities that the Activity Director had planned. Tara and Luis were fantastic property managers and answered ALL of my questions, and I asked a lot of questions before our trip and even during our stay. I recommend using their service of grocery shopping for you, spare yourself the hassle of dealing with taxis and transporting groceries to the room. The seaweed plague was disappointing to discover that first initial day, but the resort kept the beaches clear and it never became much of a problem, we still boogie boarded and kayaked in spite of it. The walk into town was always so charming and romantic, unless we were exhausted from a day of adventures, then I recommend sucking it up and just having a taxi take you to the hotel. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to anyone, especially for the price, it can't be beat, trust me, I did my homework. Thanks again for a lovely week!!!
