The Space

This condo at Playainn is a spacious 2 bedroom condo with a large open kitchen, a big living area with flat screen TV and cable service. Adjacent to the living area you will find a terrace with seating for 4 people. The master bedroom has a king bed and an en suite bathroom. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and a private bathroom as well. There are is one small balcony overlooking the pool and a bigger balcony off the living room. The larger balcony has a big gas grill / BBQ. The Playainn building is small, only 10 units, very well maintained and it has a lovely pool that always looks very inviting and that has some shaded area around it as well. The location is perfect, literally around the corner from both Fifth Avenue and Mamitas and KOOL beach clubs. This is truly a hidden peaceful gem in Mamitas Beach area, what is the most popular vacation rental area of Playa del Carmen at the moment.

  • Отличные апартаменты! Большая, просторная квартира с тремя балконами. Замечательное месторасположение, в шаговой доступности бары, магазины, дискотеки, море. Квартира полностью оборудована: посуда, стиральная машина, фен, утюг, доска и даже утюг для выпрямления волос)))) На балконе есть гриль.
    В целом, мы получили только положительные эмоции от пребывания. Спасибо Моника!

  • We were two couples and a fifth friend traveling to Playa del Carmen on a last minute vacation from Dec 26th-Jan 2nd. This period is also the week before the start of the electronic music festival called BPM, and Playa Del Carmen was swarming with Mexican and European teens and 20 somethings ready to party. Check your dates if this isn't your scene because the apartment is REALLY WELL SITUATED just one block from the shops and so-so restaurants on crowded 5th Avenue, and just one block from the beach and the hip sardine-packed beach club Mamita's, whose monopoly over the beachfront made it nearly impossible to enjoy the gorgeous sand and water without the pumping base and beer coolers.
    It should be noted that like Playa del Carmen, the apartment is a commercial vacation rental property and rather impersonal. But that said, we also felt that overall the apartment was a GOOD VALUE: it's relatively quiet, it's safe, spacious and comfortable with basic (nondescript) furnishings and appliances, and a simple courtyard and plunge pool to cool off in. The bedrooms and bathrooms are large, with huge showers and hot water. The apartment also comes with a parking space, and the working wireless internet and the BBQ grille on the balcony were really nice amenities. Go to the Italian specialty shop called Novis for delicious sausage to grill since it's ironically impossible to find fresh fish in Playa. With that we enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings, even though it overlooks the street; ie: no view. (The distant ocean view noted in the description is a stretch.) The other smaller balcony overlooks the courtyard and pool.
    MONICA WAS GREAT TO DEAL WITH; extremely professional. Monica responded within hours to our request and was very clear with her communication. Our transaction to rent the apartment was settled in just a few hours on Air BnB, and she also accommodated a special last minute request for an air mattress for our fifth person which was kind of her since it's not typically allowed. (The apartment is really ideal for two couples or a family of four, so I wouldn't recommend our scenario in any case.) We received a PDF via email before our arrival with clear instructions on how to access and leave the apartment at the end of the stay, so we never had to meet with anyone upon our arrival or departure save for a cleaning lady who came through once during our stay and as we were departing to verify things and tidy up.

About
I'm originally from Amsterdam but in 1999 I chose the sunny skies of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The same year I became a PADI dive instructor and the following years I spent a lot of time swimming around in the beautiful Caribbean waters. In 2006 I got the opportunity to look after a beautiful villa in Playacar. This is when I found out this work suited me really well. The rest is history, I started a property management and vacation rental business called Latido de Mexico. Now, 5 years later I'm still enjoying my job and my life in Playa del Carmen.
