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. Don't miss the phenomenal view from the upstairs patio! It's got 360 degree views for miles in every direction! Or 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, and stainless built-in refrigerator and other appliances. 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.
We just replaced the glass patio doors and windows throughout to greatly improve the fantastic views and comfort level. The glass patio doors slide open 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 on 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 8 very comfortably, but be ready for the fight over the master bedroom. Close 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 a large closet, multiple drawers and cabinets, as well as 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 Puerto Aventuras
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.

Our third time.
That should tell you how much we like it. Not a thing I would change.
A real value.
That’s exactly what we strive to hear! Our goal is to provide a place that guests feel is a step above the rest. Even though we may not be the least expensive, it’s nice to read that others realize the tremendous value we are able to provide. There’s no better gauge than having guests return time and time again.
Communication with Stephen was great.
The property is just beautiful and the condo was awesome.
We were so comfortable and had everything we needed.
The photos don't do it justice.
We would definitely recommend this property if you are going to Puerto Aventuras.
You will not be sorry...
Perfect place to vacation !!!
We had a wonderful time. Like being in paradise.
The property was beautiful and access to the beach and town was great. We had a wonderful time!
Real Del Mar - a little piece of paradise
WOW! Sea view from the front door and master bedroom takes your breath away! Fabulous place right along with the beach with ready access to pool, beach and sea. Beach side pool is inviting while listening to the crash of the waves on the beach.
First floor condo was very comfortable and spacious for our family of 5. It was well appointed and had all the upscale comforts of home. Short walking distance to Marina via beach or street for dinners, water excursions, or shopping. Plenty to do and even kept the teenagers engaged!
Had a very relaxing week in a little bit of Real Del Mar paradise! Muchas Gracias!
Real Del Mar is the real deal!
Beautiful, spacious, best location, fully equipped! - They did think of everything!
We loved our stay at Real del Mar!
The location was incredible, even doing the dishes you had a breathtaking view! You cannot get a better beach front and pool access, you are literally steps away.
If you prefer dining out, several restaurants are just 2 blocks away, and you can even short cut thru the beach! Some of our favorites were the Pub and Dolce Vita....if staying in, I was pleasantly surprised that they thought of everything...from an apple slicer to a martini shaker, the kitchen was fully equipped. Getting fruits and fish from the farmers market made everything even easier (again, just blocks away!).
We also loved the privacy! The complex is small, just eight condos, and we were lucky that we were the only ones there at the time, so we had the pool and beach to ourselves. No need to hurry to find a lounge chair or spot!
The condo itself is super spacious and nicely decorated. We enjoyed our 2 day "stay in" due to a tropical storm, with plenty of board games, netflix and a bottle of wine. Best tropical storm ever!
We also want to thank Vicky (property manager) for assisting us with any questions, Mau (maintance guy) for being so helpful, he even help us with some fishermen friends to get some off the boat fresh catch, and to Bianca (housekeeper) . (You can add extra housekeeper visits for a low cost)
Thanks Pam and Stephen for making our vacation, so perfect! You guys have a beautiful home!
What a great review! Makes me excited for our trip down there next month! You and your family were wonderful guests and we'd love to have you stay with us again.
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!
