About the property

2 Bdrms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

We have other properties to offer you from a one bdrm to a 4 bedroom - please see other options by clicking on my logo and seeing additional listings on VRBO. Please send an inquiry before sending an actual reservation request as it is impossible to keep all the calendars up to date. We don't want to disappoint you. PLEASE DO NOT PUT A BOOKING REQUEST IN WITHOUT CONFIRMING WITH ME FIRST. WE MUST PUT THE CONDO ON HOLD FIRST TO AVOID A DOUBLE BOOKING.

This is our main home - and it not your typical "rental" as we have outfitted it with all the comforts you can think of. Our home features 2 bedrooms, 2 en suite baths, 1 powder room. The complex offers a beautiful pool, 8 in-pool beds, 2 jacuzzis, gym, game room, and business center.

All of the furniture has been custom made. Most of the artwork has been commissioned for our home. The kitchen appliances have all been switched out with upgrades as well as the washer and "real" dryer. Even the pots and pans, dishes, and silverware has been brought from the US. There is a 40 inch TV in the living area, complete with Blue Ray DVD. The master bedroom has a 32 inch TV. The beds have imported 500 thread count sheets, plenty of pillows, and towels all brought from the US.

Our building has the nicest amenities we have seen in Playa. Best pool in Playa...feels like you are in Miami with the beds which are placed right in the pool. There are six in-pool beds, covered lounge chairs, 2 Jacuzzi's, pool table, Foosball, poker table, gym, business center, trash chute, and ELEVATOR (you know these things are important if you have stayed anywhere else!) There are other lounging and entertainment areas situated around the beautifully landscaped ground as well as WIFI throughout the complex.

If you want to hang out at the condo, you can relax on the balcony with seating and beautiful plants and vines filled with flowers to watch the pool activity from above. A complementary phone is provided. The condo has 24 hour security. Weekly maid service is included also in the price. Ramps in building.

There is a more upscale, yet local vibe where we are located. Not so many tourist shops selling t shirts. This is the area where many expats live and socialize.

We are located between Mamitas Beach and Kool and Carnival Royal....by far the best beach clubs to relax, swim in the ocean (which is free of rock and coral) or the pool, eat sushi or a burrito, and be served your favorite cold drink. We are also at the end of the beach which has the best restaurants and are not considered "tourist traps". You can walk to everything including two major grocery stores only 4 blocks away.

You may want to reconsider cooking when one block away is 5th Ave, a walking pedestrian mall, with hundreds of restaurants at your disposal. we are located on 34th Street between 10th Ave and 20th Ave, across from the park. There has been a tremendous amount of growth in restaurants over the past few months just at the end of our street and the next block, including La Bodeguita del Medio (Cuban), Chez Celine (French Bakery),Negroamaro (Italian), Aqua Chilies (fresh seafood tacos at great prices), Ah Cacao (coffee and desserts), El Gallinero (handmade chocolate and ice creme, crepes, and sandwiches), La Portena (Argentinian), Salt Rock Grill (Varierty), Michelandia Sport Bar, Sala Rosa (Lounge), 38 (Lounge with relaxed live music), Chic Pea (Mediterranean), Club de Cerveza (Brewery), Green Box (juices, healthy options), Chitepin (economical Mexican), Disfruita (Juices and Menus of the Day), Guai Thai (Thai), Piola (best pizza in Playa), Milos (Greek), and several more.  It seems that every week there is something new to discover to eat!  These are just the ones that are with in 2 blocks!


Promotional rate of $99.99 (up tp 2 guests) is for the entire place for your private use but only 1 bedroom may be used

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Jamais,

Just a quick note to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in the Sabbia Condo. We realized that the location and facilities were perfect. My daughter and granddaughter spent every day around the water:at the pool, beach , at Xcaret, and Xel-Ha. Phyllis and I relaxed in between day trips to Coba, Tulum (twice) and Akumal.We enjoyed the variety of restaurants available to us.

Just got back from Playa Del Carmen last night. Absolutely the best vacation and my favorite place in Mexico. From the moment we arrived at Sabbia condos we were in heaven. The condo is absolutely beautiful. We walked in the door and we were taken back by how gorgeous the condo was decorated from the furnishings to the artwork as well as all the little things from the placements on the dining room table to the wonderful guidebooks on the coffee table. The bedrooms, the bathrooms, the kitchen were all decorated with the finest and have everything you needed. We loved sitting on the balcony overlooking the pool, which was a great place to relax. As far as cuisine we would have never found local restaurants without all the tips from Ruben and Jamais. It was so nice to read all their notes on their favorite places. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Andy and Karen for the wonderful review! There is a BIG difference between renting a standard vacation home or investment property, versus an property which the owner actually calls "home". We are so glad you noticed the details, because these are the things that make the difference between just an ordinary rental and an extraordinary home. We love living in Sabbia and enjoy the well thought out common area spaces with the pool, the loungers, the social areas, reception, and the gym. We are thrilled that you enjoyed our home as much as we do! We hope to have you back again soon! Most Sincerely, Jamais and Ruben Trujillo

Beautiful property at Sabbia condominium

  • 5 of 5

This is a really lovely condominium.

We really enjoyed the place, it is very beautiful and comfortable!

It is beautifuly designed and fully equiped and we treated it as our own.

Did not have any guests over either and we were fun-busy exploring Playa and surroundings, even went all the way from Chichen Itza to Valladolid to Merida......so much to see and do!

Jamais and Ruben gave us really great tips on what to do in the area.

We checked off 6 out of 10 things on their list and they were all great! Probably most exhilarating - climbing Coba! We really enjoyed it.

Guess we will have to return to finish up the list :)

Last but not least, people working at the reception downstairs were really great, so kind and professional - even better than those working in a really nice condo building in Toronto where our home is.....kudos to them all!

What can I say?

Jamais and the service she runs is the reason why everyone reading this should book their next vacation rental with her.

She goes out of her way to work with your budget to get you the best possible unit for the lowest cost. After submitting multiple inquiries to different agencies, she responded back first with aplomb with numerous choices to choose from. Not only that, but she's quick to list points of interest, dining choices, and local excursions which was the icing on the cake. She makes it a point to talk to you as a friend during the correspondence which was a nice change of pace from all the one or two-word responses I received from the other services I emailed.

Being a first-time renter, I was apprehensive about the whole process but her professionalism made me feel at ease. She makes it so easy, before I knew it I was booked and everything was done. It's nice to know all I have to do for future vacations is to send out an email and I will be taken care of.

If convenience, value, and peace of mind are high on your list of priorities when booking your next vacation rental, you've found the right place!

Thanks so much Jamais!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Ruben & Jamais were great! As soon as we reserved the condo they contacted us to offer any advice we might need. When we arrived, they greeted us and answered all our questions about places to eat and things to do. Their condo is perfect: impeccable taste in furnishings, small complex with a great pool, excellent location right near the beach and also close to good local food. It was the most perfect vacation!

Great Location! Great Owners! Decor Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beatifully decorated condo for a week. The owners have taken such care with every detail. The quality of the sheets, towels, and kitchen supplies was better than a typical rental. The location to 5th and the beach was just perfect for us. There were about 20 restaurants one block from us and the another 20 the other direction 2 blocks from us. We walked to Mamitas or Shangri Lai Beach every day. The amenites at the property included a beautiful pool with lots of areas to lounge, jacuzzis, game room, and gym. We also have a cell phone for our use. We ate at several of the restuarants recommended by the owners.
