El condo está muy bien ubicado, cerca de los súper's de la 5a avenida, de la playa, de la terminal de autobús.
Las bicicletas incluidas nos pareció una excelente opción, nos dio la oportunidad de recorrer el lugar de una forma conveniente.
El departamento esta muy bien equipado y la descripción es adecuada.
Edmundo nos dio la bienvenida y es una persona muy atenta y agradable, nos dio muchas opciones para aprovechar nuestra estancia.
Al momento de partir extrañamos el lugar, ojalá tengamos la oportunidad de volver algún día, muchas gracias.
Ed and Vilija were very welcoming and informative during my stay. There was a little issue with the wifi not working, but I was able to get a hold of them and the issue was resolved in the same day, they even refunded me on the issue. The apartment was very cute and extremely close to the downtown area, which was both good and bad. It was good because we were super close to the beach, all the restaurants and shops. It was bad because it was very pretty loud at night between the traffic of downtown and the people. Otherwise it was a great little place to stay and we really enjoyed it.
Ed and Vilija were timely welcoming and friendly.
They no not own the unit and only manage. The photo as noted is not accurate.
The unit was conveniently located clean and generally as described.
It is not very well maintained with regards to propane tanks for hot water, and DVD player.
The traffic on 15th Avenue is constant and noisy as noted by others.
The solution to install double pane windows would make the unit
practicle and attractive.
The unit is not priced competitively with others in the area.
Thanks Mike! Indeed, location is very good for the condo. You do not need a car to go anywhere and that, unfortunately, carries a cost. When compared to people that come here for six months or a year, it is indeed more competitively priced, but that has to do more with the length of the rental, than the unit itself. My suggestion would be: If coming for as long as you did, to not come during high season. The market drives the price and when you book such a great location for high season, the "value" is going to be a logical downfall. Even in your case, where you paid nearly half the daily rate, is not the best value for a monthly rental. Location, location, location... it has a cost. Specially in high season, for a whole month. :) Thanks for staying with us though!
The hacienda was perfect-- close to the beach and nice restaurants and bars. Love the atmosphere. Air conditioning and wifi work great. A lovely place to stay!
The location was perfect, close to the beach, but far enough from the busy/noisy part of the 5th avenue.
Probably because nobody lives here permanently, the place was smelling like mold and, unfortunately, was pretty dirty, mostly in the kitchen area ('clean' dishes/pots needed to be really washed before used, the fridge was anything but clean etc.).
Other than this, the apartment looks nice, like in the pictures.
Great apartment in an even better location. 1 minute from 5th avenue and 2 mins from the beach. Its on quite a busy road so if you're a light sleeper or if you have kids this could be an issue but we were three mid 20's so it didn't bother us.
Vilija was great at keeping contact with us about when we were arriving. She was at a wedding when we arrived and she came back to let us in and show us around which was really nice.
Any questions we had were also promptly answered and recommendations were also thrown in which was great!
The wifi didn't work when we arrived and it took a few days to get fixed but these things happen and Vilija made every effort to get it fixed as soon as possible.
We didn't cook but the kitchen is fully stocked with kitchen appliances and crockery.

About the Host, Ed And Vilija
WHY WE HOST
We -LOVE- to Travel. My wife and I met originally in the USA, where I lived for over 16 years. For the last five years we have shifted out priorities and have been traveling the world and making a habit of staying in local people's homes. After the US, we spent time in Spain and Portugal and then lived in London for just over three years, where we settled temporarily and, after learning of AIRBNB then, weplayed the Host role for a three years, while we explored Europe from top to bottom!
We are now, living in Akumal, Mexico, which is between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. We came here on vacation almost three years ago and fell in love with it all so, we stayed!
We have plenty of travel stories ... like the time we cycled from Norway to Spain (Yes, the whole continent in 2.5 months and stayed in a hotel only ONCE) or when we crashed a three day long wedding in Bali, or when we dived Shark Island in Thailand. We hiked for 9 hours to see a volcano erupting and got lost in the lava field; we have driven a motorcycle in the crazy traffic of Vietnam, and seen the sun rise and set in Angkor Wat. We love wild places like erupting volcanos but we also moved to Rome for a month to drink wine, eat pizza and fall in love with Bernini :) We can talk travel for hours ;)
In all these places, it was local people who allowed us to full experience a place and gave us the best tips and recommendations. We now try to do the same for guests in the place we call home, for now.
We are a young, active couple. We have been together for more than twelve years and we love to have fun and travel together. We believe in what we call 'Real Travel', and we have been lucky enough to be able to visit over 30 countries for extended periods, spend time, eat and drink (and many times party) with locals. We are very health conscious and we do our best to eat well, and stay active: Yoga, jogging, etc. We have people we consider friends all over the world and we do what we can to meet more friends when possible. If you need advise on Jakarta, Bali, Romania, Germany, Italy, Spain, France or the UK, Ireland or Scotland, we can likely give you names and numbers of awesome people who will treat you like family!
We love to host people from abroad are very excited at the possibilities this model has brought to our lives!
In the professional front, we have worked and specialized in Real Estate in this part of Mexico, which gives us yet another way to introduce people to this wonderful part of the world.
In the time we already have hosted, we have met incredible people and made great friends, both as hosts as well as guests, it at least three continents, dozens of countries and countless languages!
Welcome to Mexico! ... and Hola!
