The Space

This spacious home with sparkling turquiose pool and garden is only blocks from the beach and from 5th Avenue (Quinta Avenida), but tucked in just enough for you to get a QUIET night's rest :)

Just a FEW BLOCKS from:
Playa del Carmen World FAMOUS BEACHES!
Including, Mamita's Beach Club, Kool Beach Club, and more!

Less than a 5 minute walk to Fifth Avenue! (Quinta Avenida) with all the shops and restaurants you could imagine.

Also, 5 min walk to MEGA Grocery Store, Superstore open late!

SHOPPING, SHOPPING, SHOPPING nearly around the corner!

NIGHTLIFE just a few blocks! (Coco Bongo, Palazzo, Mandala!)

You can WALK everywhere from here!! You don't need a car, even to get on day trips, there are great methods of public trans, cheap and easy, just ask me, I can help you plan :)

Awesome TRIPADVISOR-rated AFFORDABLE restaurant secrets RIGHT across the street, or cook at home and eat overlooking our garden and Caribbean Turquoise Pool!

Very short taxi ride from ADO bus station and town center on Juarez and 2nd.

This condominium gets the best of both worlds as it straddles the border between the tourist zones and beaches, and the expat zone where the tourists start to thin and secrets of Playa life begin to be discovered :)

Apartment has:
-- CENTRAL Air Conditioning (optional)
-- Ceiling Fans
-- Floor Fans
-- 2 SPACIOUS BEDROOMS with a Queen sized bed and another Full-sized bed (Also known as Double Bed or Matrionial), both with BRAND NEW pillow top, orthopedic mattresses.
-- Full kitchen, equipped, with huge dining room table, and spacious living room with Free Wifi, FAST 5 MD download speed in every room, and Sky Satellite TV on a flatscreen ALL INCLUDED in the price.
-- Hair Dryer, Iron and Ironing Board
-- Bath towels AND Beach towels included, as well as soap and shampoo, so you don't have to worry while you are here!!
-- THREE beach cooler TOTE bags, so you can take drinks and snacks to the beach and keep them cool.
-- Beach umbrella you can use to get some shade or cover your snacks and drinks while you lie in the sun :)

LAUNDROMAT right around the corner making it easy to clean your clothes for a SUPER cheap!

Italian Pastry shop 1 minute away for morning pastries, quiche, sandwiches, eggs, juice, coffee and cappucino at GREAT prices (way better than on 5th Avenue, another block away :)

Perfect for couples, vacationers, explorers, travelers wanting to live like locals but still be near it all, romantic getaways, anybody who wants the best that Playa has to offer.

We accept travelers from ALL over the world, and do not discriminate. We speak English and Spanish, a little French and a little Italian.

This place is unique because it's so near all the major attractions, BEST beaches, and at the same time, it's far enough away from the hotels that you don't have to deal with the noise of tons of tourists, you get to feel like a local living in luxury :)

What are you waiting for? Playa del Carmen and it's blissful beaches are waiting for YOU! And now you can afford it in style! :)

  • I had a wonderful stay at your residence. Everything was perfect, including the assistance checking in and accommodations. I really liked the fact that I was so close to shopping and the local beach, which is absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend staying at T.D.'s place in Playa Del Carmen. Oh....and I can't forget how close this beach home is to other areas such as the Mayan archeological sites, pristine ceynotes (sp?), and other cool beaches. Thanks so much TD

  • My wife and I spent 4 nights at this property and really enjoyed our stay. It is located between 15th/20th, so it is easy to access both touristy (5th) and local (30th) eats. The numerous suggestions in the introduction/welcome email and the booklet in the apartment (by both the owner and previous tenants) came in very, very handy! The host does a good job of making you feel welcome through his local acquaintances, even in his absence. We did not have any notable issues during our stay and hope to return sometime.

  • Had a wonderful stay in Playa del Carmen. The apartment was perfectly situated just two blocks from 5ta Avenida and a block from Oxxo to get last minute supplies. The place was great, very clean, complete and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Nice apt, very central but far enough from the super noisy 5th Avenue. 3min. walking to the party zone (5th Av) and about 10min to Mamitas Beach. 20m down the street there is a huge supermarket to buy groceries.
    The local manager got a bit unfriendly when we left 36min too late but apart from that - a great place to stay!

  • The apartment was exactly as advertised--clean, comfortable and in a great location-close enough to the 5th Avenue and the beach but far enough away from the "vegas on the beach" scene. Tobias was very prompt and helpful in answering my questions prior to our trip. The pool really is empty most times and impeccably clean. People in the complex were very nice and inviting-seemed like mostly European ex-pats. The kitchen was well-equipped for real cooking and Ariceli was very helpful during our stay. The mega-mart next door was a pleasant surprise--they have fresh bread in their bakery every day. There is also a nice little Italian shop in the hotel next door. We ate in two of the restaurants Tobias recommended and both were very good. We did 2 days of touring with Edventure Tours, run by a local couple in Akumal. While I am usually a fan of independent exploring, they were awesome and we couldn't have done better ourselves. Especially the cenote exploring. All in all a successful trip!

  • TD's flat is very well located, near the 5th, beaches, a big store and small good restaurants. It's very pleasant, well distributed, with two real bed rooms. It's quiet (inside and outside). There are sheets and towels enough for long stays (we had been in TD's flat for two weeks).

    The women in charge with small problems answered us very quickly. There's no problem to pick up the keys when arriving. You can have a break in the small patio with the swimming pool, it's fresh and quiet.
    We will come back here if coming back to Playa.

    Merci TD

  • This apartment was great, such a fantastic location and Tobias was so helpful. He offered lots of suggestions about things to do in playa del Carmen. The apartment doesn't have a washer/dryer but it does have a basin and space to do hand washing which was very convenient! Definitely recommend staying here!

  • The apartment was FANTASTIC!! Right off the 5th ave ... Quiet enough to chill out but so close to the partying also.
    The apartment was clean and well maintained, pool was lovely and cool there was access to supermarkets and a book full of information on what to do and where to go. Thanks for making our trip awesome ...
