We are located close to Mamitas Beach and Kool and Carnival Royal....by far the best beach clubs to relax, swim in the ocean or the pool, eat sushi or a burrito, and be served your favorite cold drink. This area of town, the beaches are white sand and FREE OF ROCK AND CORAL...unlike other areas South. We are also at the end of the beach which has the best restaurants.
You may want to reconsider cooking when one block away is 5th Ave, a walking pedestrian mall, with hundreds of restaurants at your disposal. we are located on 34th Street between 10th Ave and 20th Ave, across from the park.

It seems that every week there is something new to discover to eat! These are just the ones that are with in 2 blocks! There is a bit of a more upscale, yet local vibe where we are. Not so many tourist shops selling t shirts. This is the area where many expats live and socialize.
We have many other properties available in all different price ranges and configurations. If you only need a 1 bedroom condo, or a 4 bedroom villa on the ocean. Let us know and we will find something to suit your needs. If you are traveling with a group, there is a 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom condo next door that is available to rent too.
Ruben and Jamais condo in Playa Del Carmen

Ruben and Jamais property in Playa Del Carmen I have traveled to Playa 6 of the last 8 years. I stayed at Haman Ha, just north of the ferry terminal. Haman Ha is a great location, but the units and their upkeep are a function of individual owners. Some take great care and others do not. I wanted to try something different and with great luck, I discovered Ruben and Jaimais condo. It is simply outstanding. The unit is well appointed with stainless appliances and granite counter tops All flooring is tiled. And everything works. The location is fantastic. One and a half blocks to the north end of 5th Ave. And there are great restaurants both east and west on 34th Ave – all within walking distance. The Mega super dept store and Sorianan are within walking distance. It is a beautiful condo; well appointed and in the middle of everything. The beach is two blocks away. The grounds of the condo and pool are fantastic and well maintained. The staff at the main desk are most helpful and attentive. I liked it so much that I thought again about staying a month during the next winter. But it is already rented Jan to April. No wonder. It is a great place to spend the winter. Ruben and his wife are wonderful folks and I got to meet them. They love their unit and they care about it as if it was their only home. I loved staying there and hope to return sometime in the future.

We loved our stay in Mexico this Winter. Our condo was beautiful, the pool is beyond believable, as was the weather. The condo appears to be professionally decorated and the kitchen is very well stocked, even to handle dinner parties. Oh yes, and the washer and dryer are so convenient. This condo is so well placed, minimal street noise, everything can stay open, as sun only glances the unit for a short time daily, and breezes off the water keep it naturally cool. Sabbia is a great condo complex, well kept, and convenient to 5th Avenue and all the services between 5th and 30th. And elevators in Playa, what a treat. We enjoyed an email relationship with the owners. They and the onsite management were very responsive to information and needs. We are booked for next Winter! For convenient services, don't miss the good grocery store on 30th and 38th, no need to take the long hike to Walmart or Mega. Restaurants abound, friendly place on the corner, wonderful raw seafoods on corner 34th and 25th, wonderful fresh seafood on 40th between 5th and 10th, El Pirata. All the best places on 5th are moving north from the pier area to this neighborhood.

The washing machine and dryer worked peferctly & the dryer was very quick .. pool was beautiful .. We didn't cook, but the kitchen was very well equipped .. The owners made sure they were in contact with you & the manager Lucy was very helpful with giving us advice on where to go shopping .. The location is perfect , walking distance to 5th avenue.. We didn't need a car at all .. Would stay here again & highly recommend
Jamais was a fantastic host. The apartment was great and perfect for my friends & I time in playa del carmen. There were a few things that went wrong with the apartment & they were fixed within 2 hours (air conditioner remote broke & there was a problem with the washing machine). Jamais was very professional through out the booking & I would reccomend this apartment to anyone.
Two words - exceeded expectations. First of all, Jamais is a terrific host. She was consistently nice, helped out with all our needs and was always quick to respond. The condo was perfect for our group of 4. The 2 large bedrooms with private bathrooms (plus a 3rd bathroom in living area) made our stay feel very spacious. The kitchen was quite nice, with modern appliances, coffee maker and a large purified water dispenser. Wifi worked great. A huge plus for us was the washer and dryer, since we packed light, washing clothes helped out a lot. Overall we had zero issues with the place. The Sabbia complex is well managed and felt very safe. There is a 24 hour doorman who is willing to help out with any questions or needs. The pool area was awesome! We made it a point to lounge there everyday. Location was key...less than 5 min walk to Quinta Avenida which is where all the main restaurants, shops are, yet far enough to avoid the noise from crowds. The beach (and nicest beach club in PDC) is only a 10 min walk. Overall we highly recommend Sabbia and/or frankly any AIRBNB locations that Jamais recommends. We hope to come back soon.
Our experience leading up to our trip was effortless and Jamais was an incredible gracious and helpful host providing an extensive list of #Playa favorites that my husband and I had the pleasure of enjoying.
Once arriving at the condo the space was warm and welcoming and the location IDEAL! With just a few minutes walk to 5ta (the main promenade of restaurants and bars) and our favorite restaurants we were able to experience true Playa life.
The space is idea for couples and families. The open windows allowed for the pool noise to carry in and the laughter of the kids to wake me each morning but it became a comforting sound.
This is such a great property - even more beautiful and comfortable than the description. We really enjoyed our stay!
Condo is spacious, beautifuly designed and fully equiped.
Location is just perfect - 5min stroll from the beach and couple of minutes from the 5th Avenue, pedestrian zone with endless restaurants, bars, boutiques and everything else you can think of.
Jamais and Ruben were really great. We did not get to meet in person as they were traveling but they made sure to welcome us via email and to give us a list of fun and interesting things to do in the area. We completed most of the list and it was great - the rest will have to wait next visit. There is so much to see in Playa del Carmen that 10 days was not enough!
Reviewers: Two friends/business colleagues staying in this apartment for a month between June July 2014 each requiring our own room/privacy.
As first timers in Mexico we were apprehensive about the facilities described versus our own expectations coming from Australia. These apprehensions disappeared on arrival, greeted by a friendly, professional, knowledgeable agent (Lucy) who took time to show us around describing all the features, furthermore since we were famished she dropped us off at a local restaurant near Mega!
On arrival it was obvious that the apartment and complex was finished to a very high standard in a perfect location. Although a 10-15 minute walk from the beach it is a 5 minute walk to 5th Avenue. On your doorstep there are 4 local restaurants which we ended up eating in all the time including Aquachillies, Chiltepan, Don Sirloin and El Fagon. We tried many different things on the menu, the only time we got sick was following a day tip to Chichenitza, the turnover particularly in the local restaurants gave us confidence that we would be unlucky to have a problem. There is also a new cold press juice bar on Calle 34th as you approach 5th Avenue. The places on 5th are all modern, very clean but do not have the characteristics of local places we ended up going to all the time after day 4 because of the price, food quality, friendliness and character.
We enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the apartment away from the hustle on 5th avenue during the day knowing we could go to 5th Avenue for a big night without it being in our faces. Also I don’t recall seeing around the beach area and 5th any complex the size and quality of Sabbia. During part of our trip we were working, having good internet was a priority, the internet speed was more than capable for us to work, often simultaneously on skype type calls with no delay/drop outs. this was a huge positive for us as part of our leisure/business trip.
We each had our own room and bathrooms, we each had our own privacy and could not hear each other, again a big positive for us considering we were friends/business colleagues spending almost 24x7 together.
From the coffee machine, fridge, tv, air-conditioning, washing machine, dryer, fans etc, all high quality and worked without any issues whatsoever. Whether you are a couple, singles, family, old or young it really is hard to find a fault with the apartment/complex. It always felt safe, relaxed and extremely well maintained.
On a couple of occasions when we had to call the agent about some minor questions the response was almost immediate, we also by chance happened to meet the owners, asked us if everything was ok and if there was anything we needed, like everyone we met in Playa, friendly, warm and welcoming. This apartment met our needs in every way and we would not hesitate to come back if the opportunity comes around again.
Absolutely LOVED the place. Jamais was extremely welcoming and accomodating. The reservation had so many last minute changes and she was happy to accommodate them all in an extremely friendly manner. The place couldn'tve have been in a better setting. Their condo was gorgeous, and in a great location. Everyone was able to relax and enjoy themselves. The property manager, Liliana, was also as close to perfect as possible, getting welcome groceries and suggesting places to visit. We would not hesitate to book again, and in fact, are looking into another visit sometime soon.
