About Ross Goodwin
My wife Lori and I have searched for the perfect place to own in the sun and near the water. We have traveled to Panama, Belize and Ecuador and finally chose this spot on the Mayan Riviera. What attracted us is the very friendly people, inexpensive living, amazing weather and safe neighborhood. The perfect place to escape the Canadian winter.
Ross Goodwin purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Ross Goodwin chose Gonzalo Guerrero
Las Olas means 'The Waves' in Spanish and we named our Condo #207 "Buena Vida" meaning 'The Good Life'! This condominium building is appropriately named, since it is literally steps from the turquoise Caribbean Sea and glorious white sand beaches for which Playa del Carmen is justly famous. Solidly built and with charming exterior design features like the winding tree pillars, these condos combine the best of Mexican design, like colorful tile, with clean, contemporary furnishings to create a harmonious, upscale experience.
What makes this Condo unique
Location, Location, Location!! Not only is our condo at Las Olas conveniently located close to the beach, it is also only a few steps from the famous Fifth Avenue. Known by locals as La Quinta Avenida, it's where you can enjoy strolling along the cobblestone pedestrian walkway and find great shopping and an array of fine restaurants and fun bars. It is also only a 10 minute walk to 2 huge Superstores (Mega and Wal-Mart) where you can purchase a huge variety of food and beverages. Just around the corner there is a quaint wine store and restaurant which offers live entertainment and happy hours most nights. For all the day to day and evening activities, a car is not necessary. Many potential guests ask about a pool. Both Mamitas Beach Club and Kool's Beach Club just a short way down the road have very nice swimming pools that can be used by families and children for the inexpensive cost of a lounge chair and umbrella.

Wonderful Condo Fantastic Service and Great Location
Everything about our visit was better than expected. The Condo is safe and secure and in a great location near everything. Easy walking to Beach, Scuba shop and some of the best restaurants we have ever dined at. The Goodwin's have this well thought out and they have a great support team. We have stayed many many places in Playa over the past 20 years and this is by far the BEST.
Wow! We can't get better than the BEST! And coming from veteran Playa Del Carmen visitors like yourselves gives it credence. Thank you Norman for a great review. You are welcome back any time.
We stayed in this condo for a month and I couldn't of asked for anything more. We used the grill quite often, being able to sit and ppl watch, while cooking was very entertaining. The noise from the bars is not an issue at all, although I think the ppl above us, used a jump rope every night as soon as I hit my pillow. Lol still not a big enough issue to discourage me from recommending this condo. Ross put a lot of effort into leaving no stone unturned, with what you need to know about his place. His property manager introduced himself and thankfully, we never had any problems that we had to bother him with. (Very nice man.) I hope to be back next year if its available again for a month. It really is a great place.
Thank you for the 5 stars Cindy. Lori and I are staying ourselves for a month starting tomorrow and I'll certainly look into the activities of the new owners upstairs :) Cooking food on the grill outside on the deck is always fun and a great way to try what Mexico offers. Contact us when you know your dates for next year and we'll book you with a 10% "return guest" discount off the posted rate.
Have a great summer,
Ross & Lori

Ross & Lori
We spent a week at Las Olas and loved it. The condo is perfect. Everything you need. Comfortable beds, nice kitchen, great patio. The music next door is pretty loud and starts early in the morning and goes late into the night but that's Playa. It's a party. We were there with our 2 year old, so not really into the party but when we closed the door and put her to bed it was barely noticeable. The place itself is a killer location, super safe and very welcoming. We felt at home. I would recommend this to anyone, couples, friends, families. We were sad to leave!
Thank you Megan and family. We are pleased that you loved our condo at Las Olas. We try to add the little personal touches that make a guest's experience pleasurable including an invitation to revisit! Come back as a preferred return guest and receive a 10% discount on the posted rate. Upon returning you will see changes as we are continually upgrading our guests home-away-from-home in paradise. Yes, Playa del Carmen is a vibrant town with music everywhere but once inside, as you say, it is barely noticeable.
Hope to see you again,
Ross & Lori Goodwin
Perfect spot, beautiful condo!
Centrally located, close to the beach and the main strip. The condo was beautiful and had everything you could possibly want while you stayed there. Ross is quick to reply and has everything setup for you to enjoy yourself. Would highly recommend this rental, will use again if I stay in Playa Del Carmen!
Thank you John! So glad you enjoyed your stay. We try very hard to have our guest's experience pleasurable. You and your family are certainly welcome back any time and receive preferred rates as a return guest.
Great location and has everything you need!
We loved the location of this condo; it's so close to the beach and right in the middle of everything we love to do! The property manager dropped by to make sure everything was going well and having a full kitchen allowed us to have breakfast on the balcony daily before heading out to the beach. You won't regret booking this condo!
