About Howard

We are from Belgium and moved here in 2010 to escape the stress and live a more simple life.

We purchased our little share of paradise in 2012 in the best location in town.

We remodelled everything in 2014 into 3 lovely apartments.

Our first apartment which we opened in 2015 is located in the same building and you can see the reviews and references on its webpage VRBO Listing #645177

After a successful 1 st year we decided to open this one as well for vacation travellers.

We are available within minutes and always ready to give you advice on anything you wish to know about the area.

Looking forward to meeting you soon,

Howard & Fanny

Clean, GREAT LOCATION, Amazing hosts!! Thank you!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! The room was very clean and organized well, loved the free wifi and was a great connection which is a bonus. Location was superb!! Can walk anywhere, loved the french coffee shop on the corner that Fanny and Howard recommended for breakfast. Howard and Fanny were awesome hosts and gave great direction and set up a taxi for us when needed. Would stay here again! :)

Amazing!! Like having a home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

I just left this place on Monday. I was there for nearly 15 days. In the time that I stayed there, Howard and his wife were amazing to me - they were helpful in keeping my stay as comfortable and as homey as if I was staying with family in Playa del Carmen. Being in a foreign country, it was nice to feel like family were there to help.

Howard went beyond the call of duty to help me out in some personal matters that I was handling in Mexico and has now become a trusted and honored friend.

As I was leaving they asked what we could do to be improve or what was lacking

ANSWER: Nothing you were perfect. Like I told you if I was to ever have a rental, i would imitate eveything that you have done - Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Thank you both for all that you did in trying to make my stay as comfortable and pleasant as it was.

Great place with incredible hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great experience staying at this apartment.

It is situated in a great location just a couple blocks away from 5 avenida, where all the shops and restaurants are located. It is in a very quite area, safe and private. We rented are car for trips to Tulum and other excursions. We found no trouble at all to find street parking. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you need. There is a great little French cafe a block away that was perfect to grab a quick breakfast or snack.

Howard and his wife Fanny are super friendly and welcoming. When I came down with a fever, my wife was very concerned and reached out to Howard. Howard didn't hesitate and took us directly to his own doctor. The doctor was fantastic and I felt much better the next day. Howard went out of his way and we really appreciated his help. Other than a little hi-cup, this place was perfect for us and we had a great time. Thanks so much!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review.When I saw and heard you came down with a fever I knew you needed help as I live here and know how hard it is not to know where to go when you are in a foreign country. Fortunately my doctor got you back in shape in less than 24 hours. Looking forward to hosting you both again very soon.

A Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a month in this apartment, and it was perfect for us! The owners, Fanny & Howard, were always available to help us with any questions about the area or to accommodate us in any way.

The location was ideal! It was located about a 5 minute walk from "the action" of 5th avenue with a 5-7 minute walk to the beach. Mega (a huge supermarket) was 5 minutes in the other direction.

If we wanted to relax with peace and quiet, we would return "home" to our quiet apartment and beautiful courtyard.

We hope to return next year.

Confort, plaisir et emplacement extras!

  • 5 of 5

Ce fut un long séjour des plus agréables dans ce joli appartement, très propre et confortable, s'ouvrant sur un petit jardin privé. Nous avons aussi eu un réel plaisir à côtoyer Howard et Fanny, les propriétaires, qui sont très conviviaux, respectueux et soucieux de notre confort, toujours souriants et teintés d'humour. De surcroît, l'appartement est particulièrement bien situé, au coeur de Playa del Carmen, dans un quartier tranquille, à 2 pas de la Quinta Avenida et de la plage, tout près d'un supermarché et des commerces d'approvisionnement. Nous le recommandons chaudement. Micheline et Robert

We had an exceptional stay at this property. Howard & Fanny were both generous with their time and advice on some local favourites for food & entertainment. The suite was very clean & well suited for our needs. The location was perfect, just minutes walking distance to everything we wanted to do. We enjoyed our stay in a Playa Del Carmen immensely. We will definitely go again & we would stay at this residence again.
