About the property

Beautiful condo 2 blocks from the beach and 2 blocks from 5th Avenue

Beautiful 2 bedroom + 2.5 bathroom condo in Playa del Carmen. We are the happy owners of a condo in Cancun (which has great reviews, check property 487294 here at VRBO) and this great condo in fantastic Playa del Carmen.

Here in Playa (as the locals call it) we have the best of 2 worlds within a 5-10 minute walk: outstanding beaches (with fantastic beach clubs) and the famous 5th Avenue, both just 2 blocks away, but at the same time our condo is in a very calm neighborhood in a beautiful new building.

The ocean views from the rooftop pool are stunning, please look at the pictures we have posted. It is an ideal place to spend a lazy afternoon after a very active day, either with family, friends, your special other one or even with a good book and a glass of wine or cup of coffee.

We, as fellow travellers and users of this condo, have taken a lot of care in having equipped the condo with everything that you need. We want you to have a great stress free holiday.

The company that manages our property can offer different options to add to your holiday: private chef (catering services in the privacy and convenience of the condo or the rooftop area); babysitting services; tours & excursions (scheduled tours to different places near Playa del Carmen such as Tulum, Chichen Itza, among others); housekeeping services; laundry services; airport transportation; golf experiences and spa options (a full range of pampering services).

Families are very welcomed at our condo. For adult only groups, due to the bylaws of our condo's owner's association we have a 25+ year restriction regarding all-adult groups. This is a nonsmoking property.

We are the happy owners of this condo in Playa and another one in Cancun (VRBO property #489274, check our great reviews!)

About Humberto

We are the owners of a condo in Cancun which has great reviews (property 489274 here at VRBO) and this condo in Playa del Carmen. We are a family of 5, with 3 girls aged 13, 10 and 7 that enjoy visiting both Cancun and Playa del Carmen as well as all the outstanding places and activities available in this beautiful region.

Humberto purchased this condo in 2015

Why Humberto chose Playa del Carmen

We love Playa del Carmen as it is a change of pace location vs Cancun, with a combination of a calmer environment but also world class dinning, great shopping, a fantastic nightlife, beautiful beaches and lots of activities ... or a perfect quiet place just to relax and unwind. It is up to you.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location. We are in the best neighborhood in Playa del Carmen, within walking distance of beautiful beaches, restaurants and shopping venues. You can have the calmest and most relaxed vacation or a holiday full of activities and adventures.

We enjoyed the condo, had everything you need with one exception. I suggest adding a couple of beach chairs easy to carry to the beach.

Great location, Awesome condo

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Studio One Unit 104 was great!! Just as it says....2 blocks from 5th Ave and the beach!! The condo was perfect for my four girlfriends and I for the week! We had plenty of space for all of us! That's right....five women, 2.5 bathrooms! The condo was very neat and clean and provided everything we needed. We walked to 5th Ave every day and enjoyed all the shops and restaurants. The little shop on the corner that's actually in the building was also great for snacks, drinks, and really anything else you might need....toilet paper, laundry detergent, etc! There is a restaurant (forgot the name) at 5th and CTM (46th) that is nice open and has great food! The rooftop pool has an amazing view of the ocean. I wish we would have spent more time up there!

The only real downside was that we couldn't really use the beach close to the condo because it smelled awful!! We asked one of the security guards we saw what the smell was and he told us it was the seaweed, but we didn't see any seaweed and it smelled more like raw sewage. On our third day, two of the bathroom sinks stopped draining, so we contacted the management company and they came to fix them right away. One other issue was the extremely noisy construction directly across the street from the condo...like literally across from the patio! That made relaxing during the day or sleeping past 9am very difficult, but I wouldn't let that stop you from renting the condo. On our last day, one of the shades in the living room fell off it's track just by trying to roll it up - hoping that it's an easy fix and I don't get charged for it. We really only rolled the shades up a few times.

Overall, this was a great condo and I would definitely rent it again!!

Owner's Response: Dear Diana, We are very happy that you had such a great time with your girlfriends at our condo. As you know, we are a family of 5, so we totally agree with you regarding how much space the condo offers and the great convenience of having 2.5 bathrooms. We love the location of our condo, and are very happy to hear that your enjoyed it so much. The proximity of shops, restaurants, bars, etc. is great, but the convenience of going back to the condo in a calm neighborhood to “get away from it all” makes for a very balanced holiday. Also, our property manager is always ready to resolve any issue you may have, and, as it was your experience, to do it in a fast way. The beach near the condo is the main beach of Playa del Carmen. The natural movement of the sea sometimes makes it have a bit of seaweed (just as it does not have any for most of the year) from time to time. We have been there many times during different seasons of the year, and, as many of our guests, enjoyed the beach a lot. We hope to have you back with us very soon. You will always have a home waiting for you at Playa. Best, Lorena & Humberto PS No worries about the shade, it was fixed without a problem.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo with my wife and two children. The property manager met us at our arrival and he was very helpful throughout our stay. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. It was clean, very large and comfortable. The facility is just as described and looks like the photos. The pool and the view are gorgeous. The location was great, next to the beach and the main street for shopping and restaurants. The housekeeping, doorman and security were very nice and hospitable. All in all it was a beautiful place to relax after a day at the beach and or sightseeing and would recommend it to our friends and family.

Owner's Response: Hi Patrick, It was great having you at our condo. We are very happy that you had such a good time. As you mentioned, families that have stayed with us find the condo very comfortable and with a lot of space (and equipped) for their needs. Our location and the beautiful rooftop pool and views are also our favorite highlights. We hope you visit us again in the near future. This will always be your home at Playa. Best, Lorena & Humberto

Great Condo, Better than Depicted!

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

We stayed for four nights in June 2016 and found the Condo and it's Management to be better than described. Parking is ample, the location is terrific and ALL facets of the condo were spotless and like new! We were a party of 5 with 2 adults and 3 teens, and were quite comfortable. If you want a location close, but far enough away from the madness, this is it!

Owner's Response: Gary, we are very happy that you had such a good time at Playa and at our condo. Our location is one of the things we try to emphasize to our potential clients, as we are (using your words): "...close, but far enough away..." so you can walk everywhere (great restaurants, lively bars, nice stores, etc) and at the end of the day go back to a calm and peaceful environment. We hope to have you once again with us in the future. Best, Humberto

Beautiful Condo with all the ammenies, concierge and owners were very attentive and kind.

Will definitely recommend it to family and friends. Owners were very informative. A few blocks from the party scene but a super short cab ride does the trick. The condo has everything you need for a great vacation. Very close to the beach. The property was very clean and everything looked new.

We are located in a calm neighborhood just 2 blocks from the beautiful beaches of Playa del Carmen and 2 blocks from the famous 5th Avenue, with fantastic restaurants, shops, bars, etc. We have the best of the 2 worlds: very nearby to great beaches, restaurants, bars, etc but in a very calm setting in one of the most beautiful and new neigborhoods in Playa del Carmen.
