Overview

Quintana Roo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Gorgeous 3BR/3.5BA Ground Floor Unit Directly On The Ocean (Sleeps 8)

**Can rent as a 2Br/2.5Ba, please inquire**

This place has everything you are looking for. Read our multiple five star reviews. "Perfect" is a common theme!

Our huge, 3 bedroom/ 3.5 bath ground floor unit is steps off the patio to the pool, and just a few more steps to one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico! Ideally located in a small, private building of only eight units, it provides the ultimate combination of location, size, privacy, and value. It's a perfect place for a family vacation, or plenty of room to bring two! It's tremendously convenient to be able to walk directly off the deck to the pool and beach just steps away, rather than walking back to an elevator. Relax on the patio and watch the kids play in the pool or on the beach, kick back and enjoy the spectacular view, or there is great swimming and fantastic snorkeling straight off the beach just steps out front. It's a short walk to the marina for fishing, shopping, dining, or to enjoy the dolphin experience. There's no need for a car!

Ours is a truly unique property! You flat out can't beat the location. Any closer to the water would require a captain and crew! We've put the time, money, and effort into appealing to those looking for one of the nicest, not just the least expensive, places to stay. Why not treat yourself and your family?

Complete remodeling throughout was finished in April, 2013, so come enjoy our new hacienda styled condo, with a beautiful brand new, full-sized kitchen, complete with granite counter tops, stained hardwood cabinets, new stainless built-in refrigerator and other appliances, and new plumbing and fixtures. Dishwasher, microwave, garbage disposal, water filter for purified water to ice maker and separate tap, and much more! All the comforts of home, but with a fantastic ocean view, even from the kitchen!

Move to the dining room and dine on a beautiful custom made table with seating for eight, along with furnishings complimenting the warm 'hacienda' style.

The glass patio doors slide into the wall and the Riviera Maya becomes your living room! Relax on the plush leather couches, kick your feet up on granite topped tables, and check out the latest Hi Def action from home on the DISH satellite system with DVR and new LED smart TV with internet connection. You can even use our Netflix account! Stay in touch with family and friends by calling back and forth to the United States for free on the Vonage phone, or surf the internet with WiFi. Fresh paint, new furniture, drapes, and much more! There is also some beautiful original local art throughout the condo.

Don't be fooled by some of the other listings advertised as 'oceanfront'. Sure, their COMPLEX is oceanfront, but it's a several hundred yard walk from their unit to the beach! Check out our pictures! These are taken from 3 steps off our patio.

Bring plenty of guests! The condo sleeps 10 very comfortably, but be ready for the fight over the master bedroom. Pull the black out drapes and sleep late on the massive hardwood king bed topped with luxurious new mattress and 800 count sheets. We've had multiple people ask what the brand of mattresses are, as they were so comfortable. Wake up to the gorgeous ocean view! There's a great large flat screen TV with satellite service, or watch a DVD on the Blu-ray. There's also ample storage with large closet, drawers, and cabinets, with a safe to store valuables during your stay. Separate thermostats and ceiling fans in each bedroom provide the ultimate in comfort. Double sinks and marble shower with glass door complete the master.

The guest rooms are massive, comfortably sleeping four to a room on new plush queen mattresses, with large closets in each guest room and plenty of storage space. There's room to spare! Each also has flat screen TVs with satellite and DVD/ Blu-ray players. The sink/ ready area is separated from the toilet and marble tiled shower for maximum convenience. There's also a large patio for the two guest rooms, as well as another off the living room to sit and enjoy the ocean view.

There's just too much to list, but we wouldn't want to forget the convenient laundry room with washer and dryer, great patio seating, and outdoor charcoal BBQ grill.

Puerto Aventuras is the perfect destination for your next trip to the Mayan Riviera. Enjoy the fantastic year round sunny climate, stunning turquoise Caribbean waters, and white sandy beaches. You can't beat our location in the community and proximity to the beach, much less find a condo so nicely appointed. I look forward to speaking to you about your stay!

About Stephen Graham

Buenos Dias, from Dallas, where we spend our time in between enjoying the sweet life down in Puerto Aventuras. My wife and I have vacationed down in the Riviera Maya every year since staying in Playa del Carmen for our honeymoon almost 20 years ago! It was a sleepy little fishing town back then, with only three large hotels hotels. My, how it has grown (really, too much at this point). We've been bringing our daughters down since they were about 7 months old, and can't wait for the next chapters of our lives, dreaming of early retirement, entertaining family and friends, and some day playing with grand kids on the beach!

Stephen Graham purchased this condo in 2012

Why Stephen Graham chose Quintana Roo

We've been searching for the perfect vacation place in Mexico for years, from north of Cancun to south of Tulum. Although we've always loved Playa, it has just grown too big and crowded over the last 20 years and has lost it's charm as a resort town . We found Puerto Aventuras just 8 miles south about five years ago and fell in love with the quaint, relaxing community. Location, location, location! In almost 20 years of vacationing and searching for our own place, this is one of the largest units we have ever been in, and just steps off a postcard quality beach! No fighting the other guests in a massive complex for a spot by the pool. There's only 8 units! Great kitchen, huge bedrooms, ample space, and walk everywhere.

Puerto Aventuras is just a spectacular site to own a home and to spend time on vacation! You'll see it immediately, once driving through the security gate surrounding the entire community. Beautifully landscaped, the winding streets meander through the small resort. Don't be surprised if your the only one on the road, except for some kids driving around golf carts. This community has it all, from the fishing and sailing opportunities at the marina , dolphin discovery, beautiful beach, fantastic snorkeling, golf and tennis, restaurants, and an endless supply of adventure and activities just minutes away. You just can't beat the location of PA, or our home there.

Wonderful beach front condo

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned form a month vacation at Puerto Aventuras. We enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated, well-equipped home with an amazing location and which has every amenity you could want. The view is outstanding. You are steps from the beach, a very short walk from restaurants and about 10 minutes walk from a big grocery store.

A special thank you to you Stephen, it really was a pleasure dealing with you. Your instructions, maps and other tips were very helpful. We experienced some minor technical problems but the property manager Victoria and her assistant were prompt to reply and everything was fixed immediately. Thank you both! Thank you to Bianca who did a good job cleaning the condo once a week and to Mauricio who helps keep the condominium property manicured.

It is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it!

Ce condo situé à Puerto Aventuras est un endroit parfait pour des vacances en famille. À quelques pieds de la mer, avec une vue imprenable de l'intérieur comme du patio extérieur, près de restaurants, d'une grande épicerie à quelques 10 minutes de marche, d'un centre de taxis vous permettant d'explorer les alentours ainsi que la possibilité de réserver des excursions à l'hôtel Omni. Le condo est bien décoré, très grand et peut facilement loger 6 personnes tout en étant privé. Le propriétaire était très accessible et nous a fourni les informations cartes et autres détails ayant permis un séjour agréable. La propriété est très bien entretenue. Je vous le recommande fortement si vous envisagez des vacances au Mexique.

A Wonderful Property Right on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo in Puerto Aventuras. It is quiet and quite large with a very spacious kitchen, very comfortable beds and a nice living room. It is tastefully decorated, and has everything you need. The small swimming pool overlooking the beach was very nice, and the condominium property is well maintained and cleaned daily. Puerto aventuras itself is very nice with a good selection of restaurants, a mini market for simple items, and a large grocery store 5 minutes away. It is about 1 hour 15 minutes away from the airport or the Cancun beaches, but 15 - 20 minutes to most of the theme parks and the Tulum ruins.

We opted for the daily maid service and the young lady did an excellent job of cleaning up, with the place always looking like we had just arrived when we returned from our daily activities. The cable TV is mostly English, which was great for me but not so much for my Spanish speaking family. The wifi worked great, was fast and we had no connection problems except once for about an hour when a storm moved through.

I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get away from the hotel and resort feel, or the bustle and craziness of Cancun. If we ever return to Cancun we will likely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you appreciated our place, especially after coming all the way from Australia! It is definitely a much better option than the massive high rises in Cancun or the gargantuan all inclusive resorts where you need a trolley just to get to the beach. Puerto Aventuras is also a wonderful little community, and our small complex is just perfect for a family gathering, whether it be with small kids or just adults. Thanks for another "wonderful" review! We couldn't agree more!

A++++ 1st class unit

  • 5 of 5

I give this VRBO a A++++, the location was great and secure in the guard gated community of Puerto Adventuras where my family felt safe to enjoy their vacation. As for the condo itself, well, all I can say it it was over the top. 1st floor beach front furnished with high end luxury in mind, the owned did not skimp on this unit.

There was one small mechanical problem that the property manager fixed immediately, kudos to them. I would stay hear again. Great job Steve!

Owner's Response: Wow! Thanks for the wonderful review! I'm so glad you appreciated the effort we took in trying to make our place stand out from the rest. I really need to get a professional photographer, because the picture really don't do it justice. Of course, you just cannot get any closer to the beach and pool! Puerto Aventuras really is a fantastic community, and it going to be a whole lot better with the new nine they are putting in on the golf course. We'd love to have you back. Stephen

The private, gated community of Puerto Aventuras is located in the heart of the Mayan Riviera, just 10 miles south of Playa del Carmen and about a 50 minute drive from the Cancun airport. Built around a fantastic marina, enjoy the seclusion of this quaint little resort, away from the overbuilding in Cancun and Playa. Plenty of activities within walking distance from the condo! Charter a boat to go after sailfish, swim with the dolphins and seals raised in the marina, snorkel or scuba right off the beach along the second largest coral reef in the world, play golf or tennis in the neighborhood, or drive a short distance to some spectacular courses, like the PGA Tour tournament course, Mayacoba.

Enjoy spa services, stroll along the shops and restaurants, or just kick back and enjoy one of the best beaches in the world, all right outside the door! The ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum and world famous snorkel site, Xel Ha, are 35 minutes away. Take the ferry from Playa del Carmen to Cozumel, considered one of the best diving sites in the world! There are several cenotes (underground caves and rivers) to explore, snorkel, or scuba dive through, within a few minutes by car. The wonderful ecological theme park of Xcaret is a 15 minute drive, with various local wildlife, equestrian show, butterfly exhibit, and much more. Don't miss the spectacular nighttime extravaganza! Zip-line through the trees, ride ATVs through underground caves, or paddle kayaks through underground streams at Xplor, also 15 minutes away. Just outside the resort is the Lapis jewelry outlet. Don't miss lunch at La Buena Vida in Akumal (if there ever was a site for a Corona Beer commercial!). Although there are plenty of great restaurants, shops, and bars to enjoy within a short walk from the condo, if your looking for a little more excitement, taxis are readily available for a quick 15 minute ride to Playa del Carmen for an endless supply of dining, shopping along 5th Avenue, and nightlife. You can't find a better location in the Mayan Riviera!
