Why Joe chose Playa del Carmen

We have traveled to many islands in the Caribbean and fell in love with the Playa area, people and life style in 2010. I first visited Playa in 1989, came back a few times in the 90's and 2000's. We looked at countless properties in Playa and felt Meridian was the best overall location with its proximity to everything we want to do and still peaceful at the end of the day.

What makes this condo unique

We love to walk the beach every morning and late afternoon, pick a direction and walk for miles on sandy beach. Great exercise and get a tan while you walk. To the north is a very private area with wind surfers, to the south are the resorts and town. I love to make coffee and sit on the patio with my bird book looking at the birds in the jungle, we overlook the jungle not another condo complex.

I scuba and have been to almost all the sites on the Playa side, many dive shops in the area and many downtown. One now offers dives to Cozumel directly from the Playa beach so you save some time there.

Shopping is great, lots of silver and trinkets, if you forget something plenty of places to get and several pharmacy’s on 5th Ave. We walk to town most every night and find a new or visit an old favorite place to eat. Hundreds of restaurants at great prices. Sports bars so you can see “your team” and other great spots for a drink.

Plus this is a safe place, tourism is king and the locals treat you great.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What an amazing vacation we just had in Playa Del Carmen. Thanks to the location of our awesome condo and the owner! We were just a block from the beach and a block from 5th Ave. Let’s start with the condo. 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, dining area, and living room (comfy couch), 2 full bathrooms and a couple more we didn’t even use. The blackout shades on the windows were used every night in the kid’s room, 23 and 13. They loved that they didn’t know what time it was when they woke up. We would get up in the mornings and make a cup of coffee, head out to the roof deck where we would watch the sun come up. Some mornings we would run on the beach. By the way, the roof top pool is beautiful and very relaxing. We spent a lot of quiet time up there. I spent a lot of time reading on the roof deck in the mornings. It was so peaceful, and a lot of birds singing to keep me company. The housekeeper came every day to change the sheets and tidy up, we appreciated her! I used the w/d daily. Next time we stay, we will pack a lot less. Bottled water was dropped off as we went through it. We shopped at the Mega Store, next to the Wall Mart, and found everything we needed and then some. We walked there and took a taxi home with the groceries. Amazing fish tacos across the street! We felt safe when we were out and about and never thought twice about the safety at the condo. We planned on staying 7 days and on the 6th day we extended for 4 more days. The first email was to the owner, and lucky enough the condo was open for the amount of nights we needed. Thanks to the Wi-Fi at the condo, we were able to get a hold of him in the US! Thank you for an amazing experience. Without this beautiful place to lay our heads and the amazing group of people that own and run this particular condo, it wouldn’t have been the same. See you again soon, Playa Del Carmen! Thank you to the owner for taking so much of his time to help inform me on the how to and where to.

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Joe and Kelly for the use of your home in Playa. Everything was clean and the location was perfect for our vacation. It was extremely hot during our stay and the air conditioning and fans worked great. The rooftop terrace was nice in the evenings once it cooled off a bit. We loved the location as it was so close to many great restaurants and the walking along the beach. Overall would recommend if you are looking for a condo in Playa.

We enjoyed this condo for the month. It was well appointed and ideally situated. We enjoyed the walks to the beach and 5th ave. The only suggestion for improvement I can make is a roof on the patio or roof top for rainy weather. The agent was very helpful. Having spent 4 past seasons in Playa, I must admit that the internet in the condo was as good or better as mine here at home. We enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, in our ongoing improvements to the condo we have installed a palapa on the roof to provide a nice size area to protect from the sun and rain. This is over the prergola and eating are still leaving plenty of room for getting sun. Hope to have you back soon Joe (owner)

What a wonderful place this was. The furnishings were comfortable, practical and everything was really clean. The beds were comfortable and we loved the décor. We came with a three year old boy and it was child-proofed enough so that we did not have to spend every minute yelling at him or taking things away (although he did love playing with the baskets of sea shells, and he fell in love with the stuffed toucan :). The rooftop area was the best-- we spent a lot of time up there, loved the privacy, and our son loved the hot tub (it was his own personal pool). We didn't use the rooftop main pool (there was no shallow area for our son) but the area up there was really nice. The location was ideal and distances to 5th Ave and the beach are accurate in the description (we have stayed in some places where a "5 min walk" is only true if you have long legs and a sprinter's stride). We have stayed on the other side of Playa several times and we liked this side better-- the restaurants and shops were more low key, and the food was delicious. The beach was not as nice as on the Playacar side, but we had a car and we went to another terrific beach in Playa on 112th street that also had a cenote-- was perfect for us and so beautiful. we rented a car and took a day trip to Tulum which we really enjoyed (but you really don't need a car in this location-- we got one so we could bring the car seat for our son). Parking was easy, security staff were great, and so were the housekeeping staff and the other travelers staying in the building. It was nice and quiet at night and the AC worked well. There is no elevator so you will have to carry your bags to the third floor-- keep this in mind if you have mobility issues. Bric staff were extremely responsive and helpful, as was the owner Joe. We would absolutely stay here again!!!

My wife and I have stayed here for 2 weeks on 2 different occasions. Great north end location so it's nice and quiet. Nice part of town. 5 minutes to either the beach or 5th Ave. Lots of good restaurants close by. Condo has everything you will need for an enjoyable stay. Rooftop terrace is private and has nice views of the parrots across the way.

Fantastic Condo in Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a week and a half in late July and really enjoyed it. The condo is ideally located, being both very close to Fifth Avenue for restaurants and shopping (although not so close that noise is an issue) as well as to the beach. The location also serves as an excellent base for exploring the area and we took day trips to Tulum, Akumal (amazing snorkeling) and various cenotes. Xcaret, Xel-ha, and many other attractions are also nearby. So much to do. But when you need to take a break, the condo itself provides an amazing place to relax with a fully-equipped kitchen, a spacious living room with a flat screen TV (with cable) and comfortable seating, two large bedrooms with their own bathrooms, a rooftop terrace with a Jacuzzi tub, and a shared pool (there are many other features as well which you can read about in the property description). There were other nice amenities like a safe for storing valuables, unlimited bottled water, and an extensive movie collection that we really enjoyed. Isaac, the property manager, is incredibly friendly and helpful. The maid service and security are also great. One thing to note is that due to the construction of a nearby building, there is no longer an ocean view from the rooftop pool--however, this did not impact our enjoyment of the condo at all. We highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review Tom it was a pleasure to have you and your family. about the roof view, a new condo was built to the east blocking the roof top pool view of the ocean. My private rooftop area faces south and we still have an unobstructed view of the jungle as seen in photos. Joe
