  • PLACE: Amazing location. It's just a block away from the beach and two blocks away from Quinta. Just downstairs, there are convenience shops and a string of 3 good restaurants & a smoothie shop which was helpful for last minute eating/drinking. It manages to be close to everything and yet is not on a busy street. There was literally no better place for us to stay to be able to easily enjoy Mamita's beach and Quinta.

    The room and the entire building is modern and beautiful. The condo has a washer and dryer and the place fully stocked too, which saves you a TON of cash. Soap and towels are provided and there was also sunblock, bug spray, aloe, detergent, etc. (I am assuming were left over from previous visitors), so you literally have all you need. There are even umbrellas, beach towels and beach umbrellas free for use. Most of all, it was great to have filtered water available at all times which is also incredibly invaluable and saves you $$$. There's a full service kitchen complete with glasses/plates/utensils and a full sized fridge as well, if you like to cook.The bathroom is amazing and the whole place is very clean.

    Lastly, the rooftop pool. We used it one time, at night, and had it completely to ourselves. It was like our own private rooftop pool in paradise. There's an outdoor shower on the roof too. The entire building is very quiet and there didn't seem to be many people in the building with us while we were there.

    HOST: Working with Sue was possibly the best part. I've never been to Mexico before, didn't know what to expect and she was always there and responsive at all times with whatever questions I had, from what tours to take to where to how to use the bus to get to various cities that we explored. I came down with an illness and Sue was able to send over a doctor for me directly to the Condo within 30 minutes. Without her help, I would have had a horrible vacation, given that I can't speak spanish and don't know my way around. She was like a virtual tour guide with a great sense of humor and was always easy to chat with. She was AMAZING and I can't express enough how having Sue as a host provided us with a much fuller experience in Playa.

    Thanks Sue! We will definitely be back again in the near future.

  • My wife and I stayed in Sue's condo in Playa for our early June honeymoon for a week.

    First, the building is clean, modern, and gives an strong air of security and privacy. Tucked in between the main drag and the main attraction (the beach), the building is in a perfect location to be steps in one direction from the beach, and steps in the other from nightlife, dining, grocery store, etc. The unit itself is exquisitely decorated, spacious, and designed for comfortable luxury. Sue goes above and beyond to provide beach chairs, umbrella, and the like. The rooftop infinity pool and lounge look exactly like the pictures, are cleaned daily, and is a picturesque spot to relax away an afternoon or two. I would strongly recommend this condo to couples of any age to experience the Riviera Maya writ large from for a luxurious stay with the privacy of a vacation rental and all the amenities beyond what a resort offers without the "in your face" consumerism.

    Second, Sue is a gracious and flexible host. From the time I first contacted her months in advance of our trip, she patiently answered every question or allayed any concern I had. In swapping messages pre and post booking, she went above and beyond to provide every bit of information I could need in a manner that was genuine, personally tailored, and never generic. This was my first foray in to the AirBnb world and I could not be more impressed with the level of attention to detail Sue paid for our visit. She responds nearly instantaneously to messages, is effortless to reach, easy to book with, and genuinely cares about your stay, truly wanting you to have a wonderful experience in her condo.

    Finally, Playa is an interesting destination if you are searching to strike a good balance between relaxing beaches, solid dining options, and day trip travel. Over the course of the week, we learned that to get the best out of Playa you have to venture beyond the allure of 5th Avenue which grows repetitive after a few days. Some of our fondest memories are going to Cozumel, renting a scooter and exploring the nearly untouched beaches around the island or wandering further from Playa's main drag to discover delicious hole in the wall restaurants (El Fogon, Kaxapa Factory, and Los Aguachiles) that beat out the tourist traps in terms of food quality and atmosphere for half the price.

    Mirror the city and wake up slowly, enjoy the beaches, relax in the infinity pool, and just bask in a gentler pace of life using Sue's condo as a home base for relaxation, enjoyment, and exploration.

  • My friend and I recently stayed at Sue's condo for 5 nights. Words cannot express how happy we were with the accommodation! The condo is absolutely beautiful. Very clean, modern and spacious. The condo is very central and conveniently located. We did not even use a taxi/bus service during our stay as we were able to walk everywhere.

    The rooftop pool is definitely a must see! After a long day of shopping and sight seeing, we could not wait to lounge around on the awesome rooftop and completely relax. You are able to hear music from the local bars on the roof which really adds to the Mexican feel. Sue recommended several restaurants in Playa Del Carmen which was great as we often didn't know where to eat. Definitely go to the places Sue recommends... She has great taste!

    Overall, Sue was a fantastic host. Sue was very quick to answer all our questions and really has put a lot of effort into ensuring the condo is a great place to stay during your visit to Playa Del Carmen.

    Cannot recommend this condo highly enough! Thanks Sue! Will certainly be returning to stay at your condo again in the near future :)

  • Sue's condo is beautiful and well appointed. The view is a great way to start the day and the street that the condo is on does not see much traffic at all. Up on the rooftop the views are sweeping and the pool is beautiful. The condo is situated close to many of my favorite Playa del Carmen restaurants and beaches so, for me, the location was perfect. As a host, Sue was great. She communicated all necessary details in a perfectly timed fashion and responded quickly to any questions I had. I highly recommend Sue and her beautiful condo.

  • Playa del Carmen is a great place to stay. This condo is well-placed, with good access to the area. It is clean, well kept and with plenty of extras. The host is also great to work with and fast to respond to any needs. Would certainly stay again.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 week and had a wonderful time.

    The flat is modern and well equipped. Enough equipment for cooking, purified water from fridge, safe, A/C, fans, strong wifi connection.

    Sue is an extremely helpful host and provided us with heaps of information including things like travel to the apartment, restaurant recommendations etc. She accommodated us with an early check-in and late check-out, and was prompt when replying to our queries (both before and during our stay).

    The pool area is lovely and not too crowded. Gym is tiny so you're better off running on the street if you're after some exercise.

    Great location - near beach and 5th avenue. Loads of choice to eat out / bars / clubs. You'll hear noise from nearby bars but nothing that goes on late and nothing kept us awake at night (and I'm a light sleeper!)

    Beach isn't great compared to Tulum - small, crowded, ferries etc - so we stuck to the roof top pool.

    We highly recommend this place!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed out stay in this apartment. It's in a great location, close to beach and to the main restaurants & bars. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and clean. It has everything you need. The roof top pool is an added bonus, just beautiful, what a treat! Great to have beach chairs there for our use. Door security and maintenance staff were very friendly and helpful. A lovely welcome food package was left for us, which was nice after a long travelling day. Sue was extremely helpful with tips re restaurants and advice about the area. Highly recommended!!

  • We stayed at Sue's for about a week between Christmas and New Year's. It was so very relaxing and literally close to everything (beach, 5th Ave, restaurants, STARBUCKS). We've never been in Playa Del Carmen before, so her tips and directions were extremely helpful. The infinity pool is a must see. It is ridiculously awesome. We were actually getting stares of jealousy from people pointing from other rooftops and balconies. The room was extremely clean, and well decorated. It felt like we were home, but with much better weather. We rented a car, and were able to park in their garage without a problem. Another benefit was the keyless entry. Very valuable when you are in and out and not having to worry about keys getting lost in the sand. I highly recommend Sue's place. You will not regret it.

  • Our hosting Sue's apartment was just fantastic.
    Since the first contact, she was attentive, patient and helpful, always clarifying all our questions, giving us informations about the apartment, the booking and about the Playa del Carmen. She gives to me security and certainty that everything would be fine as it was.

    It was my first experience with Airbnb, because I am extremely boring and picky when choosing a hosting during our travels.
    But, Sue and her apartment exceeded all my expectations.

    Her apartment is spacious, new, very well equipped, cozy, clean, clear, has excellent location (very close to the beach and near to 5th Avenue) ... the website photos portray very well the reality of the apartment and the building, which has a lovely pool.

    Anyway, everything was great! Recommend without restrictions.

About
Hi, my name is Sue Mattio. I have been married to my fabulous husband for 23 years. We have 2 sons, 1 daughter and 1 delightful 9 months old granddaughter. Our granddaughter is the new joy in our lives:) I work as a property manager in the United States, so I have a great deal of knowledge with making sure renters are happy. Our condo in Playa Del Carmen was selected before the building was even erected. My husband worked hand in hand with the builder to make sure everything was built to promote comfort. Our interior finishes, including art work, was accomplished by local craftsmen and artisans. Our views are amazing. On a clear day, we can see Cozumel from our balcony! We were also very selective with our onsite apartment manager. Rest assured, your needs will be met. Need a ride, massage, excursion to sites, beach umbrella & beach chairs or have a simple question, our apartment management will be there to help.
