Interaction with Guests
I tend to leave guests alone so they can relax and enjoy there vacation, however i am always a call away or an email, if for some reason i am not around then Samuel my friend takes care of everything.
walking, taxis are cheap, there is buses from the airport to playa del carmen or if you need a private transportation from the airport. We work with an amazing private transportation company and the total cost for a one way transportation up to 6 people is $75 usd (total not per person). If you are interested just let me know and I will send you an email from PayPal to make the payment. What I need from you is the information of your arrival flight. (Flight number, airline, coming from, arrival Time) if you want round trip transportation i will need also your departure flight info, so we can determine your pickup. A driver will be outside your terminal waiting for you with your name on a piece of paper. Company name is EL NOPAL.
If you are not interested IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT YOU TELL ME ON TIME YOUR ARRIVAL TIME AT THE AIRPORT TO ESTIMATE YOUR ARRIVAL AT THE CONDO IN PLAYA DEL CARMEN. I need to know it to organize the check in!!
Other Things to Note
Donate old clothing - This one is very simple if you have space in your suitcase and you have clothing that you don't want or don't use anymore just bring it down with you and leave it in the condo when you leave and we will distribute it to people that need it. Same for non perishable food that you buy in Mexico any leftover's will be distributed.
Rent includes 30kw of electricity per day, this is plenty for A/C and all appliances etc, however if you decide to leave the AC on 24
hours per day then you will result in a deduction to pay for the extra Kw from your security deposit. When you arrive to the condo we will take a picture of the meter and when you leave another one and do a simple calculation each extra Kw costs 4 Mexican pesos equivalent to .27 cents us dollars (13/Feb/2015) if you have any questions don't hesitate in sending me a message. thanks for your understanding. Remember it only takes 5 minutes to cool down a room and it helps if you if you close all the windows. Up to this
date i have never charged anyone even if they go above the rate, this is just in case it gets abused.
CHECK IN IS AT 3PM and CHECK OUT IS AT 10AM
IF YOU GO TO THE BEACH THE DAY OF CHECK OUT AND DONT LEAVE BY 10AM, AN EXTRA DAY CHARGE WILL OCCURE AND YOUR THINGS WILL BE PLACED IN A SEPERATE CLOSET, YOU WILL NOT HAVE ACCES TO THE CONDO. IT THERE IS NO CHECK INS ON THAT DAY AND YOU GET OUR PERMITION WE WILL BE ABLE TO EXTEND CHECK OUT.BUT ONLY IF THERE IS NO CHECKINS THAT DAY.

1 Do not drink the tap water
2 Do not throw anything in the toilet
3 Turn off the AC if you go out
4 Close the door and windows if you leave the apartment
5 If you break something, just tell us ;)

Es la segunda vez que nos alojamos en la casa de francesco!! siempre impecable, siempre limpia tal cual son las fotos. siempre estuvo a nuestra disposicion, es mas, nos consiguio una parrilla que como argentinos estamos muy agradecidos. por supuesto volveremos el año que viene al mismo lugar!!
This home was incredible! The beds were comfortable, the living room was spacious, hanging out on the balcony was fun and the best part was being right on 5th avenue!
My family enjoyed every minute of being in Playa Del Carmen and we can't wait to go back.
Likfe Francesco says, Chez Celine has great breakfasts! Get there early or take it to go. El Fogon was one of our favorite restaurants. Authentic, delicious and filling.
The rental was just perfect. The condo is exactly what you see in the pictures. We had a very good time in playa and can't wait to return.
I can only recommend this place.
It's a very nice condo, which is well located and Franco is very helpful and easily reachable.
Everything was wonderful! The Location of all the shops and restaurants is perfect and beach very close. Francisco was very accommodating and always responded very promptly when we needed him.
The photo of Franco's place seemed too good to be true but it is delightfully true. The home is large, spacious, nicely equipped, and in a phenomenal location right on the famous 5th Avenue, which runs parallel to the ocean a very short walk away. The apartment has two decks on two different floors that overlook the restaurants, art shows, performers, pedestrians, and music on 5th Avenue.
There are a few things that could be helpful to know. We took advantage of the offer for Franco to line up the pick- up and drop off location from the Cancun airport. It was seamless and so convenient. I highly recommend it. We love to walk so were delighted by the abundant opportunities to do so. There is a flight of stairs to get up to the apartment and then there are beautiful marble stairs inside that lead to the two bedrooms on the second floor and the washer and dryer on the third floor. The bathrooms are very nice and had two towels each and hair dryers but you need your own shampoo, soap, etc. The water pressure is very low and the water temperature was on the cool side. The hot tub on the roof is a nice feature but had no water in it and given the water pressure it didn't seem worth it to even try to fill it up. The only other noteworthy thing to be aware of is that the location on 5th Avenue (one we will hopefully be able to book again in the not too distant future) is surrounded by several restaurants with loud music that continued well past midnight. That was not a showstopper for us but it is worth noting.
The neighborhood is divine. There are restaurants, bars, tourist shops, clothing, galleries, jewelry stores, and all kinds of retail options all along 5th Avenue and beyond. The attire is everything from beach wear to nice attire, depending on whatever you want to do. The blocks from 5th Avenue down to the beach clearly cater to the tourist traffic. The vendors are aggressive in seeking attention that will lead to purchases. There are tour stands everywhere so you can book trips when you arrive. Our very favorite was the amazing Rio Secreto underground river tour which seems to fill up fast. There was an abundance of police everywhere we went in the neighborhood. It felt very safe to us but the presence of so much police personnel was intriguing. Everywhere we went, people were super friendly and helpful. We are not Spanish speakers for the most part and had no trouble navigating as most people seemed able to speak English.
Franco’s welcome email was chock full of most of the details that you need to know. There are more details on the back of the apartment door complete with phone numbers.
The apartment, combined with the proximity of the ocean and 5th Avenue resulted in the perfect stay for our family.
