About James Orr

Hola - We have been enjoying our place in Mexico for 10 years now but rent out more often as we have been recently made grandparents! We were Innkeepers in the lake district North of Toronto, Ontario Canada until just 3 years ago. I miss having guests so please enjoy all Playa del Carmen has to offer and stay in our home away from home. Best James

                                                                  Comfortable condo close to beach and 5th Avenue

                                                                  Barbara F.

                                                                  We really enjoyed this condo it was very comfortable and we really liked the roof top terrace where we spent a lot of time. The condo was close to the beach and steps from 5th Avenue.. it could however be quite noisy at night as the closest restaurant had live music that went quite late and the air conditioning units were all on the roof and even if yours wasn’t running and someone else had theirs on it was very noisy.

                                                                  The apartment was lovely and had everything we needed.

                                                                  Roberta C.

                                                                  Although we really liked the apartment there were a couple of surprises that dampened our first impression. The apartment was up two flights of stairs and there was no elevator or info regarding that in the VRBO description - it was a challenge to get our luggage up all those steps!! The third bedroom was not connected to the apartment and up another flight of stairs! There was only one key and so we left the door unlocked at night for the fourth floor people to come down to have some privacy with a bathroom - the upstairs bedroom was a half bath with minimal privacy.

                                                                  Great location

                                                                  ADRIAN G.

                                                                  Everything went smooth Mr James was very helpful and answer every single question I had and replaying right away. The condo is very nice and comfy the only thing is that we stay for 8 nights there was no one changing sheets or towels other than that all good!

                                                                  Wonderful Stay @This Fabulous Condo!!!

                                                                  Roger N.

                                                                  We arrived and found the lockbox. We quickly had our keys! We were thrilled with this beautiful condo, which is fully furnished with everything you need. Very safe and secure. We had no problems. Perfect location 1/2 block to Avenida 5, and 1 block to the beach. Easy to hail, cabs right outside the condo. Plenty of water provided. The owner, James Orr, was so very nice and helpful, and always quickly replied to any questions we had. 3 balconies, and the roof top terrace. The only thing I would say was needed was some shaded areas on the terrace, or large umbrella, as it was sunny and hot. Very safe, since the condos are locked, behind gates. You will not be disappointed, and we highly recommend this condo. Hoping to return again, soon!

                                                                  Very nice condo in great location!

                                                                  Jeffrey B.Fort Wayne, IN

The condo is well furnished and everything you need in the kitchen, and there are numerous restaurants and lots of shopping a short walk away. Definitely plan to return to this location.
