About Matt Weatherbee
We moved from Boston to Playa del Carmen, Mexico in 2008 and we haven't looked back since. We came originally on vacation and saw the opportunity to open a successful property management company. Within 3 months of returning from vacation we had quit our jobs, sold everything (except our condo and car) and drove 4,500 miles from Boston to Playa with our 2 miniature schnauzers. We absolutely love Mexico. The food is fantastic - we eat out often, enjoying a variety of cuisines in one of a kind establishments, most of which are within walking distance of our condo. We have formed a large circle of friends, mostly retired expats, and even host Thanksgiving with usually more than 50 attendees! For Halloween a group of 20+ friends come over, all dressed in costume and we hit 5th Avenue and hand out candy to all the children. It is the most fun day of the entire year! When we are not working, Matt enjoys working out, reading, playing bridge, cooking gourmet meals and visiting the beach. Allan enjoys watching TV, playing blackjack, eating out, going to the movies and also visiting the beach. Matt and Allan

Tranquil and gorgeous.
Beautiful condo, just what we expected. I would definitely stay here again, I would recommend having a rental car.
Beautiful Accomodation in a great Location.
My family came down for Thanksgiving Break and really enjoyed ourselves immensely. The unit itself is clean, well appointed and has a great outdoor area that overlooks both the Huge pool area and the Ocean. We did have a little issue with the AC upon arrival but the management company and Owner responded immediately and had someone out there to fix it. Really great to have that kind of response and attention. I would rent here every time I come down. Really can’t beat it. Great combination of being close to downtown and the Parks like XPlore and XCaret while being far enough way to have some quiet. Highly highly recommended.
Fantastic property and service. We would love to come back if you'll have us.
Beautiful unit and complex
We had a wonderful stay at Agua Dulce. The unit is even better than advertised -- 2-1/2 baths, laundry facilities and new appliances. Very comfortable for a family of four. The Mareazul complex is gorgeous and -- even though we were there over spring break -- not crowded at all. Mareazul is at the north end of Playa del Carmen about 10 minutes / $10 cab ride from downtown. A couple of watch outs -- there is a convenience store on site and a beach club open for breakfast and lunch only but no food available at night on the property. So I would plan a trip to Mega or Wal-Mart for groceries. Also, the staff at Mareazul are very helpful but not always bilinguial, so having a little Spanish or someone who can translate will help. Overall, we had a great trip and would highly recommend, especially for a quieter and cheaper alternative to the PDC resorts!
Nice but too much money for what you got
This property was ALMOST exactly as it was described to us - the beautiful beach, the lack of amenities, the distance to town, the beautiful pool, the quietness. The owner was available and helpful. What we did not know and wish we had was that the second bedroom had a window that opened into a hall way entrance! The blind was shut 100% of the time and my teenagers basically spent a week sleeping in a large, dark box. Incredibly disappointing as we were expecting they would go to sleep/hangout in in their room with the sounds and sight of the ocean. We have stayed in other places with similar or less price range where both bedrooms had ocean views. We would have chosen a different resort if we had known about this bedroom arrangement.
Gorgeous place with a few issues
This property and this condo are spectacular! Very clean, nice decor and fixtures, close to the pool and the beach. The plunge pool is about knee deep, very clean, cool and inviting for wading, floating or sunning. There was an air mattress in the condo when we were there. Nice! And the nice patio furniture was great for outdoor eating, reading, etc.
We enjoyed the beach club. Nice pool there, good cocktails and good food.
We took a trip to Chichen Itza with Mayan Explorers. Highly recommended!
This place is very quiet, with a few permanent residents and a few other tourists, mostly Spanish speaking. I would not recommend it for teenagers. They will want more action. Great for those wanting a place away from the craziness of Cancun or Playa. Younger kids would love the plunge pool and everyone would have to love the main pool. It is HUGE and has a lot of neat features.
Our issues involved difficulties with the air conditioning and the refrigerator. Maintenance came several times to work on both. The AC would cool for a couple of hours, then quit. We would get up in the night to reset it. The problem was never really resolved in the 8 days we were there, although the repairmen worked really hard on it. The refrigerator didn't cool as well as we thought it should, and they tried to fix that, too. Maybe we were expecting too much.
Bring your Spanish phrase book, as many of the staff didn't speak any English.
Overall a very good stay, but if you require great AC, as some in our party did, it may not be the place for you. Hopefully that is resolved by now.
It really is a beautiful place. We hated to leave!
