Playa del Carmen 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 Quintana Roo

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.

Family wedding!

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely 7 night stay for a wedding. The photos and description provided are very accurate. It has the best view of resort and beach. The bedrooms are both ensuite, and have plenty of space so you are not living on top of one another. We were greeted with wine, fruit and a welcome card, which was a lovely touch. Drinking water was also provided during our stay - which was very welcome considering how hot it can get. Tara (I believe a property manager) was great, she checked in on us a couple of times during our stay. The condo itself is the perfect distance from everything you could need. The kitchen has everything you could need - we even cooked a few nights in the flat. We took a few leisurely strolls to 5th ave. The walk in the opposite direction is just as nice, with lots of water sporting activities available for purchase. The beach is gorgeous and never crowded. On our last night we even witnessed a giant turtle lay eggs on the beach before returning to the water!!!

Kathryn (the VRBO owner) was very helpful in booking and arranging our stay, and following up to see if everything went okay. I would definitely rent from her again.

Full disclosure, the only reason I could not give our stay 5 stars is we had a few issues with the water, which did pose a few challenges when trying to look our best for wedding photos. Some of the days in the master suite the pressure was so low we weren't able to shower at all. However, Tara advised the pressure does have a tendency to lower at peak showering times i.e. before dinner, etc. The entire resort, including resorts down the road, also had the water switched off for maintenance, so I think that exacerbated any water pressure issues that may have already existed.

We loved Playa Del Carmen - and are planning to return next year :)

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us. It was unfortunate that the water was an issue. They were undertaking a major re piping and we thought it was completed. Sorry for the problem but it is fixed now. We do hope you will stay with us again.

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!
