The Space

Immaculate 1200 square foot 2 bedroom condo in lush, tropical, gated Playacar golf community in Playa del Carmen. Ground floor unit with terrace and privacy garden next to the pool has the security, peace and quiet you need yet walking distance to the beach, shopping and the famous 5th avenue as well as the cozumel Ferry.

Building has only 30 condos, pool, security and private parking. Lush green common spaces and plenty of room for lounging. This unit is within a gated community called Los Lirios within the gated community of Playacar so there is Double security!! On top of that, there is an ensuite safe.

Condominium is on the ground floor has the advantage of no stairs ! It offers 2 large bedrooms each with ensuite bathroom,, including a bath tub, showers, marble sinks. Other features include living room, office nook ( a plus), kitchen with 6 burner gas stove, granite counter tops, tropical hard wood cupboards, dining room has 4 person glass and hardwood table, and dinning buffet, full size washer dryer in laundry room, patio, multiple windows for lots of natural light.

There are three AC units in the condo, one in each bedroom and the living area as well as 4 ceiling fans and additional floor fans to keep you and the air very comfortable. One of the few units in Playa that doesnt smell musty.. ugh! Utilities include Gas, water Electric, Cable TV. Internet also available for a small fee. Two bicycles are also available for your use

Your neighbors are residents are from Scotland, Austrailia, Canada, Mexico and the United States, so come stay a week or a month in this very safe and private, yet truly international, neighborhood !

I bought this place for me. I spend a lot of time here and love it!! Ideal for mature couple or friends who want to enjoy Playa and all it offers while also getting some well deserved rest and relaxation. Truely is a home away from home for the right responsible group! Also, if you have any maintenance issues, just call Anna and we will have someone address immediately. I had a tenant provide a negative review due to some very addressable maintenance issues but the never called Anna to have them addressed :(

Deposit of $350.00 refundable 2 days after departure. Once our Property manager has verified that the condo is intact, VIP CARD is returned, bicycles in tack, keys are in the condo, or you have returned the keys to us and all house rules have been met.

Significant savings when you stay one month or longer. Weekly maid service available

  • Our trip to Playa was so incredibly relaxing. Stacey and Anna were very accommodating, even when we thought we had lost the beach club card. Thankfully it was found. :) The condo is nestled away a side road in Playacar. Initially turning down the road you wonder what you may have gotten yourself into, but tucked away at the end there is a lovely area with lovely people. We thoroughly enjoyed getting acquainted with some of the neighbors. The community pool is great for a morning or afternoon swim. Only bummer was the lack of lounge chairs. The beach club made up for it though. Just a few minutes away by bike (included with house), the beach club has great poolside or ocean lounging. They also have a small fitness center available. FYI, they are cashless. You can buy a day pass for all you can eat and drink or simply bring your own.

    There was definitely a strong smell when we first arrived. We opened all the windows and simply aired the condo out and all was good the second day. We cooked at least one meal a day and the kitchen had all the necessary utensils. Even sharp knives. We had no issues with any of the linens or towels as mentioned in another review. There were some dogs barking but by no means all day and night. The condo does not have wifi. There is an internet card that must be loaded. We found the little restaurants basically across the street had great wifi and it was just as convenient. My boyfriend actually read a book this vacation since he wasn't constantly looking at email.

    This was our first airbnb stay and Stacey and Anna made it a great one. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Stacey's condo is everything she made it out to be; elegant, quiet, cozy. The entire apartment, as well as the location and the condominium complex were perfect. Stacey and Anna were incredibly accommodating with any and every small ask we made. They brought additional towels after we used up all of ours at the beach, and were even understanding about my accidental lighting of the house's decorative candles ;). Anyway, playa del carmen as a whole was wonderful and the condo was nothing short of that itself. Would most definitely stay here, or any of Stacey's properties again.

    Response from Stacey:

    Thanks Jake. Glad you enjoyed your Trip!

  • Our most disappointing stay ever!. The bed was terribly uncomfortable, all the linens were badly worn, frayed and discolored. Especially towels, tea towels and bedding requires immediate replacement. Only 1 of 3 fans are working properly, many light bulbs are burned out. Water from kitchen and bathroom taps is only a dribble.
    This complex is over-run with dogs and cats. Dogs barking, howling and whining all day while owners are out. Some tenants have as many as 4 cats that just run loose.
    This unit is not cozy, and is certainly very far from elegant.

    Response from Stacey:

    Thanks for the feedback Heather. Unfortunately, it is very hard to address these issues if you dont tell us about them up front. We have a maintenance person that can be out to address issues within hours of calling Anna. In fact, When you checked out, Anna brought much of this to my attention (lights, fans, water pressure, linens) and they are already addressed. All you have to do is let us know and we will take care of it. Other reviews even mention that. Regarding the animals, I have not noticed it but have already sent a note to the owners and we are proposing a plan to limit pets in rentals and quantity per unit. However, I have not really noticed it. Although someone did mention that last month every unit was occupied which is usually not the case.

  • Wonderful apartment in a great area in Playacar. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Stacey was helpful and efficient with all queries. The place has a lovely atmosphere and it tucked away far enough from the business of Playa Centro but close enough for a refreshing treelined 10min bikeride. I would definitely stay here again :-)

  • Really nice holidays at Stacey's place. She and Anna have been helpful and contactable through our stay. I will highly recommend her. Thanks, Stacey!

  • Fabulous, quiet location that is perfectly functional for 4 people. Having 2 bathrooms is so nice. Short cab rides to town or 20 minute walk. Perfect location to experience the Riviera Maya - Cozumel Ferry is in town, eco-parks are all close, Tulum and cenotes.

    We experienced a musty smell throughout the apartment that we got used to. The place is very clean and so we attributed the smell to a damp ocean environment where things probably never really dry out.

  • Stacey's wonderful condo is just as she states in the rental description. The condo is clean and the rooms are well furnished with a kitchen with everything you will need. We enjoyed sitting on the front patio overlooking the pool. The rental will suit the individual/s who like to be active during their stay....the beach and town are about a 20 minute walk from the condo....the two bikes included make it that much more fun.
