About the property

3Br Penthouse, 2Baths, private rooftop w/Jacuzzi, 50"tv, 4 AC, sleeps 7, GATED.!

Wonderful and spacious 3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms Penthouse in Playacar Phase II Gated community and gated complex , super safe . Very well equipped . Very quiet and charming residential area away from the crowds.

20/25 minute walk to downtown and Playa's best beach *The PLAYACAR stretch , quinta avenida and the pier with Ferry to Cozumel. It is just 15 min by bike around the golf course to everything ( we provide up to six bikes for free , guests really enjoy ridding bikes or walking in Playacar ) or just 5 minutes in taxi to everything($4-$5). Shops, grocery and restaurants are just a couple minutes away .

FREE Access to the REEF RESORT PLAYACAR is included and all of its amenities. Two gorgeous pools, bathrooms, gym, shaded gardens , lounge chairs on the beach and pool areas , they even have beach beds, very rare in Riviera Maya for under $ 100 a day. Free! Enjoy the best beach in playa or pool volleyball. Get a free scuba diving or snorkel intro at the pool. Opcional daily all inclusive for $ 50 per person/ per day, the food and drinks are just ok and i do not really recommend it.. I do think it is a great resort right on the best beach spot in all of Playa just perfect to spend a couple of days and a great BONUS to your rental . However , december thru march may be a problem due to amount people they take a day and cannot guarantee entree since it is out of my hands. The best you can do to organize your beach week is tell our concierge what you like and do not like and she will set you up for the best vacations ever!

This Penthouse is super safe and quiet, NO CONSTRUCTION( Playa is booming) , no traffic , no music. The condo has a big balcony, three large bedrooms (one with king Bed, one with Queen bed, one with Queen bed and Twin bed). Air condicioner and fans in all rooms . Fully equipped kitchen, fully furnished and nicely decorated . Enjoy your own and very Private ROOFTOP with Jacuzzi tub, shower, outdoor sofas, shade . The rooftop is small , cozy , very private and relaxing area for you in the evening or night .A reserved secure parking spot is included , you may want to rent a car for a couple of days, so much to see in Riviera Maya !

The building has an awesome swimming pool with a giant palapa for shade during the hot days. You will love this tree house penthouse in the wonderful community of Playacar .

We also have a first class concierge/manager Viviane who takes care of all your needs, like her private transfer from/to Cancun airport for $120/140 round trip, most guests use it and are fully satisfied, get a rental car at the condo if you wish or at the airport. All the tours are available at great prices , and all sorts of local tips and advice to make your trip trully unforgettable . Viviane is fluent in English, Spanish, French and Dutch.

If you have a bigger group I can set you up with another apartment at Los Lirios or downtown.

Any doubts or questions just ask me please.

About Patrice Largilliere

I have been coming to playa for 15 years , and i love the town of Playa del Carmen so much that i decided to get a penthouse here . My manager and myself take great

pride in keeping this home in perfect shape and condition at all times. We are in close contact with every client to make sure you have an unforgettable stay at my residences.

Patrice Largilliere purchased this condo in 2014

Why Patrice Largilliere chose Playa del Carmen

This is a very spacious apartment for a " Feel At Home" Vacation / Holiday. The apartment was renovated and redecorated also with new air-conditioning in all bedrooms and living room , fans in all rooms , new beds, bedding and new bathrooms . The condo sleeps six people up to seven in very special cases and is very affordable, a car is advised for a few days but we have four bicycles for you. We are within minutes from the best beaches in Playa del Carmen with several public accesses for people staying is Playacar, the Reef has the best beach stretch in all of Playa in my opinion. Great communal pool at Los Lirios and you have your own very private outdoor spaces too . Great balcony and private rooftop with outdoor sofas /hot tub/ barbecue /shower / shade.

My Concierge Vivian is first class, outstanding and always available. She will make sure you have the best vacations ever in Playa del Carmen. She owns her own tourist agency and provides at a great price and service all excursions , transport and rental cars. She is also on site at los lirios ! Check out our reviews for comments on our services.

What makes this condo unique

Very spacious and private Penthouse. High quality towels,  sheets and mattresses, 50 inch TV in living room , 32 inch TV in master bedroom , HD cable TV , Internet, great pool and a very private rooftop, away from the crowds. Have the best of both worlds, access to all inclusive beach club resort in the day, but rest in your own private residence for half the price of other condos in playa or paying the all-inclusive price at a hotel. Playacar neighbourhood is the most unique and exclusive in all of Playa del Carmen.

*All utilities included . Four bicycles are included , REEF RESORT access for our renters is included, truly a great resort on the best beach and you will enjoy your time there. New years and Christmas as well as jan thru feb may be a problem but you should have access if you check in early , the reef Club has limited owners entry for *40 . However, check in is not a problem AT ALL throughout the rest of the year . We do have many beach clubs and great beach spots to recommend.

My dream vacation

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse is big, beautiful, and it has all of the necessary services, including air conditioning, towels for the penthouse and different ones for the beach or swimming pool, a kitchen that's well-equipped, nice laundry room, a beautiful master bedroom, and all of the rooms are well-sized. The pool is also beautiful with a shower and toilet aside, and you're close to the fifth avenue where you can find a lot stores, restaurants, pharmacies, ice cream , bars and a lot more .I love this penthouse and really amazing manager Vivian, she's so helpful she can help you to find everything you need especial good price with the parks. Thanks so much to Patrice Largilliere and Vivian ,we have a wonderful time, 😃😃😃

It was nice

  • 3 of 5

Viviane was really helpful but the only reason i gave them a 3 stars is because the hotel they are associated with didn't let us use the pool or let us go to there beach. we thought we had access to but in fact we didn't. If we would of know then we would of got a resort... everything is included.🤔

Owner's Response: Hello, Just talked to the hotel. This was a temporary issue because they where overbooked, it happens in high season.We had no prior notice.You had beach entry right next to the resort. Completly out of our hands, sorry . You only had 200 miles of beaches to chose from after that. Viviane is a real pro in giving out all the secrets and how to enjoy this area and all the beaches it has to offer. This is a three bedroom rental penthouse, and a beautiful one , with an awesome pool on site .My customers use it as a base to know Playa del Carmen and the region. The cheaper all inclusives you mention will cost your group at least 3X. Sorry once again . Kind regards, Patrice.

Great location, Great communication, Clean, large, nicely decorated space

  • 5 of 5

The condo is clean, nicely decorated, no shortage of space, with a nice shaded balcony and a sunny rooftop patio (where I am right now on our last day here)... zero complaints there. Patrice (owner) always responded promptly (this is huge, it gets worrisome when a few days go by with no response... been there done that, Patrice would get back within an hour or two). Viviane (property manager) went the extra mile to be sure we were comfortable and she lives very nearby; it was great knowing she had our back. The location is very convenient, walking distance to 2 decent restaurants and package store for incidentals. The grounds and pool are cleaned daily, the staff and residents always say hi (well... buenos dias/buenos noches ;-), and no one uses the pool so it is like having your own (other residents seemed to enjoy having folks use it). The best restaurant we found is Cafe Sofia, a long walk, or short drive or cab ride; they serve Mexican breakfast (best Mexican we had here so far), Italian lunch/dinner (also very good).

What we wish we knew...

If you have your own car, when you first get there you have to leave your license at the gate... seemed a bit worrisome, but it is fine and afterwards they wave you through using Patrices playacar ID. We rented a car, Hertz so we thought no problem.... it was a problem.... 1+ hr checkout (at 1AM...), lots of hidden charges, car was in rough shape... we will see if they try to charge us for any of it (everyone incl us took tons of photos before leaving Hertz). Turns out cabs are plentiful here and very cheap, if we come back we would shuttle here and take cabs when needed (the 'if' is only as we tend to mix it up, but this experience makes a good argument to do otherwise). The Reef club is very nice but be warned there is absolutely no parking so if you have a car don't bother. It can be walked in 30 mins if your up for it, and a cab is 50 pesos, 100 w/ generous Tip (total = ~$5 USD, driver smiled ear to ear). Cabs park a few hundred feet from the condo and there is always at least one there. The beach there is _much_ nicer than playacar/PLC (no seaweed for one). Admission is limited for Playacar guests, but we showed up at 8:30 and were the first ones there; during the week it opens to Playacar guests at 9 and that would have been fine (but YMMV). After having stayed in a few Airbnb, I won't say this is the best simply as others good ones exist too, but this experience ranks with the best of them.

Great time at Los Lirios, Playacar 2

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Playa del Carmen and surroundings. The apartment is located in a quiet part of Playacar 2, but close to everything. Easy walk into town and to the beach. Just what we were looking for. Our property manager, Vivian, was awesome. Every question and concern was taken care of immediately. Thank you so much, Vivian, for all your help. We will definitely visit again.

Nice apartment to explore Playa del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Patrice and Vivian for the great accomodation. Everything was perfect, apartment is clean, well equipped, located in safe and calm area. Bikes are big advantage for reaching out both beach areas and downtown, as well as exploring apartment neighborhood. Everything is in 10-15 min biking proximity. All minor problems appeared during our 2 weeks stay were solved quickly and efficiently. We will surely recommend this apartment to our family and friends. Thank you for your hospitality and great service!
