Born and raised in Iowa, I made the leap and moved to Playa del Carmen in 2013. My family purchased this incredible condo a year later and my parents spend the winter months in paradise while I get to enjoy the Caribbean and the Riviera Maya all year round!
Sarah purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Sarah chose Puerto Aventuras
My family has been visiting the Riviera Maya since the early 80's and love Mexico and the Caribbean, when we walked through the door of the condo and saw the view, it was a done deal. We love spending time here as a family, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, friends, all are welcome and we have so made so many incredible memories over the last 2+ years in our home away from home.
What makes this Condo unique
Private beach, amazing onsite staff, easy access to other towns along the Riviera Maya, Tulum, Akumal, Playa del Carmen.

This property is everything you will read in the reviews, but it needs to be seen and experienced to really appreciate it. Gorgeous views, sparkling clean and very comfortable. Sarah is incredibly responsive and helpful. It was really a perfect vacation!
Thank you for your kind words, Rebecca. We would be happy to host you and your family again sometime.
Have a great summer!
What an Incredible Place to Stay-Highly Recommended!
First Impression of the Property: How did we get so lucky to find this paradise? We're so glad we booked an entire week! The photos are accurate - the views are stunning. The condo is immaculate-decorated beautifully and very comfortable.
The owner, Sarah, is responsive both before and after booking and during the stay, if any questions arise. The condo complex has an elevator-great for reaching the top floor with your luggage and groceries. The staff at the condo are wonderful-answering any questions about the property. We were fortunate in that only two other condos were occupied. We pretty much had the grounds and pool to ourselves.
We really enjoyed morning coffee on the veranda overlooking the ocean and listening to the waves. Plenty of sun to catch some rays and two comfy chaise lounges for relaxing or sunning. Large umbrella to block the sun, if needed. Great place to have a glass of wine at night and soak in the relaxing vibe.
We used the new bbq grill and enjoyed eating in for three dinners. Sarah hooked us up with a golf cart rental from one of the other condo owners. I highly recommend this as it's a pretty far walk to restaurants during the heat of the day. During cooler months it would be a great walk but keep in mind that at night it's pretty dark to walk back to the condo from the marina. Not to mention it's so much fun driving all over Puerto Aventuras; making a coffee or gelato run!
Our party was only two adults so we used the 2nd bedroom to open our suitcases on the twin beds - made for very easy access. Both bathrooms were lovely - great water pressure. Plenty of towels for both bathing and for the pool.
Unfortunately, the weather was too hot at night to open the bedroom sliding glass door and be serenaded by the ocean waves. The master bedroom has a brick mosaic ceiling that is very beautiful. There isn't a ceiling fan, but a table fan is provided in the closet, which I used nightly.
The only issue we had with our stay was the A/C being off when we arrived. The condo was hot; 30c/86f+; not good for unpacking or sleeping. It took 24 hours before the condo was comfortable despite running all 3 units. (Seemed more difficult for the A/C to catch up once it was so hot.)
Once the condo was cooler, we settled in and truly appreciated the lovely home that has been created at Quinta Luna #304. We hope to return for another adventure sometime soon! Don't miss out on this gem in the Riviera Maya.
Hi Denise! Thank you so much for your kind words, it makes us so happy when guests fall in love with our home! Sorry about that first night with the heat, going forward we will make sure that the property manager has the AC turned on prior to guests arrival. We'd be happy to host you again and hope you and your husband had a wonderful anniversary trip here in the Riviera Maya! :)
Thanks - Sarah
Oh that view!!!
We spent 10 days in Puerto Aventuras and stayed at Sarah’s penthouse condo. It was beautiful! The photos are totally accurate. The staff kept us stocked with bottled water, the pool and beach areas are super well maintained, and while the hotel beach clubs across the lagoon were crowded and noisy, we were often the only ones on our property! Privacy yet close to absolutely everything In Puerto Aventuras. Sarah is very easy to communicate with, answers questions before and during the trip. Thank you!!
We'll definitely return! Gorgeous condo and views!!!
We couldn’t have asked for more – this condo was exceptional! I’ll describe our favorite aspects of the condo unit itself and offer some tips for anyone wishing to stay here in a moment.
But first, I want to acknowledge how great it is when someone is as easy to communicate with as Sarah (owner) was, beginning with her suggestion to connect via WhatsApp. We did that from the start as a way to shift from messaging through the HomeAway app and web site. The latter works fine, too, but with WhatsApp on my iPhone, messaging was far more instantaneous. Moreover, Sarah was never more than a few minutes form a reply through it. And when traveling internationally, with cellular and/or wifi connection, messaging or even voice calls through WhatsApp are a breeze. Highly recommended.
Clear communication is one thing, but being attentive is entirely another. The only real time I relied on it was to confirm the address for directions for our cab driver. Sarah was immediately available and ensured we knew where to be taken and that the property manager had the unit ready and lit for us upon arrival (we arrived at dark). I genuinely felt like Sarah was our personal Siri/Alexa; that was comforting since this property was new to us.
As for the condo itself – it’s beautiful and extremely well cared for. #304 Quinta Luna has many features you just can’t help but notice and enjoy. The tile and brick archways, the brick ceiling and stained glass in the master bedroom, the waterfall shower, the great water pressure and ample hot water, the super fluffy bath towels, the air conditioning, the full-wall sliding glass doors to the patio, the view from within of the ocean and the breathtaking 180 degree penthouse view of the ocean and Cozumel from the patio were all part of a place we loved calling “home” for our stay.
We seemed to be the only ones staying in the entire complex that week as we had the infinity pool to ourselves. Except for the friendly iguanas who would crawl by to say hello and sunbathe with us. And on occasion the kayakers in the lagoon staying at the resort across the way. We truly had the whole place to ourselves. And the weather could not have been finer – sunshine and blue skies the entire time.
Plenty of other good things to say about this place and the surrounding neighborhood, but we'll end by simply saying...
Sarah, thank you very much for our truly spectacular stay at your place. We look forward to returning!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We would love to host you again, guests like you make my "job" easy! Please visit us again sometime soon!
Thanks again :)
Very nice location.
Loved the interior design and the Mexican folklore type accessories. Enough of a beachy décor to remind you you're at the beach without overdoing it. Tasteful design. Well equipped. Would add light blocking curtains to master bedroom. It gets very bright early when your vacation eyes still want some darkness. Couldn't really access the beach but the pool and the surrounding area was great. Gorgeous at nigh! If you venture off property - leave some breadcrumbs. It's quite an expansive development. Would be nice for a trolley type service that could take you to the shops and restaurant since parking there is quite limited and could results in more visits. Overall, this condo was great! Sarah was very pleasant to work with and responsive.
Thank you so much for spending your vacation at our home in paradise. We are so happy you loved the decor and view. It is very helpful to get your input on our master bedroom curtains. We will look into the possibility of adding room darkening shades. As Quinta Luna owners, we feel very lucky to have our expansive, private beach and fortunate to have the natural peninsula out front. It has been a blessing for our property during hurricane season and we are proud of the fact that when sargassum is a problem on other beaches, our beach remains sargassum free.
Thank you again for choosing our home for your vacation!
Quiet and relaxing
We absolutely loved staying here. The Penthouse ocean view was amazing. I wish it would have had an umbrella for shade BUT I do know they will be getting something at the end of the year. The inside was beautiful and comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked with all necessities. The only thing I would note is that it does not have a dishwasher so I would recommend buying a lot of paper plates/products so you wouldn't have to hand wash dishes the whole stay. The beach, water, chairs and palapa shading was FABULOUS. Super relaxing and hardly any people. There are 2 resorts on either side so for a few hours each afternoon you could hear their music and people yelling on a microphone but it wasn't terrible. We rented a golf cart which gave us access to travel in to the marina for some amazing dinners each evening. I HIGHLY recommend staying here!
Thanks for your review, we are so glad you and your daughter had a relaxing trip! We're happy you used paper products during your stay as opposed to plastic/styrofoam. As a family, we're committed to reducing our single-use plastic consumption and love it when guests do the same!
We'd love to have you and your family come back and stay with us again!
Thanks so much!
We are located in the gated community of Puerto Aventuras, with full time security and an amazing marina - enjoy restaurants, cafes and shops just a short walk from the condo. If you want to explore the Riviera Maya more, we recommend renting a car, which is easy and safe to do, to visit areas like Akumal (10 minutes away), Tulum (30 minutes away) and Playa del Carmen (20 minutes away).
