Why James Orr chose Playa del Carmen

This is a lively town with something for everyone. International in flavour, low rise and with the pedestrian 5 Av everything is easily accessible. We love it!

A special place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay at piedra viva. The beds are very comfy, there are ample towels, the kitchen is well stocked with every appliance/tool you will need-easy to eat in if you feel

Iike it. The rooms are beautifully decorated and immaculately clean. The location is fantastic-close to the beach and 5th ave, easy access to many wonderful restaurants and easy day trips. We ended each day's adventure with a cool dip in the pool and a lovely drink on the rooftop terrace before heading out for a delicious dinner.

James was always available to answer any questions and make recommendations.

What a lovely place!

Lovely Condo in Heart of Playa

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for more! James, the owner, was so helpful and made the whole rental experience easy. The condo was clean and ready for us, and there were plenty of linens. We even had large, fluffy beach towels. The building itself was very secure, and the other tenants were friendly. Mornings were spent taking leisurely walks to various breakfast spots or just grabbing a delicious mocha at Ah Cacao. The one at the corner of 5th Avenue and Constitution had the best staff. Afternoons were for beach walks or sightseeing. Mamita's Beach had the most reasonable rentals for chairs and umbrellas, and the food there was good, too. Evenings were always fun because you could choose from many restaurants. La Parilla has a tasty shrimp enchillada (my husband's favorite), and Karen's Pizza has a shrimp ceviche that is like no other. Karen's Pizza also offers beautiful wooden flute and guitar music. Wah Wah's has a huge bar, a dance floor, live music, and evening beach entertainment. If you're an art lover, you'll also enjoy the artists that display their work in the evening along 5th Avenue.

If sightseeing is what you want, take the ferry to Cozumel, rent a car, and head for the far side of the island. The view is spectacular! You should stop at the Mayan ruins of San Gervasio; it's well worth seeing. For the best experience, pay the extra money and get a private guide. Then make your way to Coconuts for a late lunch. The food and drinks are excellent! Of course, the coast of the Yucatan offers many special places. Some of my favorites are Paa Mul (luncheon visit), Xcaret (all day), and Tulum & Coba (all day excursion). This was our 30th visit to the Yucatan, and for us, it never gets old, it only gets better! We can honestly recommend Vista De Oro to future guests.

Beautiful condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

Third floor condo with three balconies plus huge terrace directly above on fourth floor. Everything was very clean, bed was comfortable. There is even one parking spot if you rent a car.

It is less than 5 minute walk to a couple of beach clubs on the north end of town. It is about 15-20 minute walk to the ferry, bus station and beach on the south end. Less than 10 minute walk to the grocery store.

My only complaints would be that there is no laundry on site, and the swimming pool doesn't get much sun. All in all, though, a great place to stay.

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

Thank you James for the use of your condo! Everything was as stated. A lovely, airy, spacious condo with fantastic location! Loved sitting on balconies or rooftop, listening to street sounds and mariachi bands! Comfortable beds, large kitchen area with all your necessities, and spacious living room - this condo works great for two with enough room for 6! The pool is delightful with hardly any use. There are steps to this condo but really not an issue. Close to shopping, the best restaurants, and ocean beach clubs! We love this area of Playa. We would not hesitate to rent from James again. Very easy to work with. Any problems or questions are quickly addressed. You just can't beat this rental!

Piedra Viva, Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 weeks @ this property and enjoyed it very much. The rooftop terrace and the balcony off the living room are fantastic spaces. Make sure you get a second set of keys. The terrace and extra bedroom are completely separate from the apartment. The bathroom upstairs is not all that private-could use a real door. The owners provide a very good supply of beach towels, bath towels, bedding & many extras i.e. a yoga mat & a hairdryer. A water purification system is in place and that is a relief to have available. The location is great, just off 5th Ave(Quinta Avenida) with a perfect parking space. MEGA for groceries not far away & just across, maybe the best patelleria(bakery) outside of Europe. Pool is cool, didn't use it but with all the cenotes and beaches-who needs it. James gives reliable & useful tips. If you don't have a car, the bus depot is not far and it's a modern establishment. Buy a good guide book. We used Moon Handbook Cancun & Cozumel(including Riviera Maya) by Gary Chandler & Liza Prado...they were spot on. Forget about Cancun! Tulum is still amazingly beautiful but get there EARLY and you'll love it. The Southern Beaches are heaven and we found Ziggy's to hang out for the day. Playa Del Carmen has many good restaurants and the prices are still reasonable. The influence resulting from the European vacationers gives it an extra touch as a destination.
