Nuestra estadia en el apartamento de Iz fue estupenda. El lugar es tal cual como se anuncio, espacioso, limpio, agradable, y con excelente ubicacion, muy cerca de la playa (Mamitas) y de la principal calle de atraccion en Playa del Carmen. Iz nos dio instrucciones muy especificas, perfectas para no perderse, y el contacto con Aracelis fue estupendo tambien. No tengo quejas y no puedo esperar a regresar alli muy pronto!
The condo was very comfortable, spacious and clean. Lz was responsive when contacted. Ara was the condo manager onsite and she was the best I've ever had while visiting Playa over the last 29 years! Thank you to both of you for the wonderful stay! I would love to visit again soon.
Iz's place was a big two bedroom two bath condo with everything you could possibly need from a blender to sandwich maker you name it. Very very clean with some very nice antique furniture(so please respect that and use coasters) or a small towel as we did. There's a washer and dryer if needed. There's a small balcony that over looks a nice plunge pool. Ara who helps with this property was amazing, she was more then helpful when our t.v didn't work had it fixed in minutes. We had an issue with another booking and ara was emailed, and back in less then an hour to let us know we could stay another night. Thank you Iz that made our transition so much easier. In closing great place, great LOCATION, great price, great management. THANKS Iz, and Ara.
Our stay was for 3 weeks Jan. 26-Feb 16th 2015. Araceli was most helpful at anything we asked for and made herself very available. She was friendly and welcoming & speaks very good English. The neighborhood is right near 5th Avenue so expect noise, esp. weekends. Unfortunately there was construction right next door at the time we stayed, so we had noise all day. Most of the time we were not there during the day, but out having fun. The place is very clean & secure.
Iz's apartment was wonderful, and in the perfect location right next to 5th Avenue. It was also a very short walk to the beach! As a few other reviews have stated, there was some fairly loud construction in the mornings, however this was definitely not to the fault of the owner. Araceli was great and attended to all of our needs, and her and José were very helpful when we had a couple of issues with the toilet not flushing and a sticky bathroom door lock. Both issues were resolved quickly. Overall, this was a great spot and I would definitely consider renting again.
We spent a week between Christmas and New Year 2014 at the condo and we enjoyed everything it had to offer. As described it is well located and we could walk to the beach with the kids in few minutes in the morning and be back at the condo for lunch. Iz's assistant was also very helpful in providing directions to various places of interest or provide us with what we needed. The condo is a bit dark but we spent most of the day outside so it did not really affect us except for the bit of humidity the air conditioners cleared off for the night. All in all very enjoyable condo but be aware of the night noise on Friday and Saturday nights from the nearby bars.

About the Host, Iz
My two biggest passions are travel and photography. I love sharing my experiences, that's what inspired me to be an Airbnb host.
I live in the always-exciting Hollywood, CA, not far from the Hollywood Hills. I get to see celebrities (and wannabes) when I go grocery shopping and I have all the conveniences and excitement of a world-class city basically on my doorstep.
If you come to LA, welcome to my world! If you are hosting me, I can't wait to meet you!
