    August 2012
  • Another great stay in Croc Condo's 1-bedroom! You just can't get any better than this building and host!

    July 2012
  • Echoing previous sentiments - we extended our stay due to the great experience at Croc Condos and great hosting team of Melissa & Monica! :)

  • Melissa and her property manager, Monica, have been great hosts! The accommodations are extremely well located, less than a 5 minute walk to the famed Quinta Avenida, but in a safe, quiet neighborhood where you still feel like you're 'living like a local'. The 1-bedroom apartment is located on the third floor (2 flight walk-up) with a front terrace with hammock and chair and one flight down from the rooftop BBQ and sundeck. The apartment has great A/C, wifi, is quiet, and modest and basic, yet comfortable and has everything you could need for an extended stay including full kitchen, coffee maker, cable TV. The shared terraces on each floor as well as the rooftop also give you the opportunity to get to know other other guests, but there is also enough privacy if you want it.

    The neighborhood has everything you need as well including a full service laundromat and and dry cleaner's right across the street, a fantastic juice bar with very friendly owners 2 blocks down (Jugolandia), Oxxo convenience store a block away, as well as a fruit market and great taco stand 1 street away (46th street). There is a supermarket a few blocks away as well.

    This was such a perfect beach getaway, I originally booked 10 days for a working holiday and extended my stay another month to try out Croc Condo's penthouse. I simply love the building, amenities, neighborhood, and proximity and convenience to everything!

Peace Corps Master Trainer, Owner of CrocCondos
About
I am originally from Chicago, graduated with a degree in Industrial Design from Northern Arizona University, a course of study that included two years in Newcastle Australia. I spent four years working for the U.S. Peace Corps in Bolivia where I assisted in the organization of several small communities, helping to develop a thriving business in beekeeping, honey procurement and merchandizing. After traveling extensively in South America, I found myself in Playa del Carmen where I decided to dedicate years to develop CrocCondos. I went back to the US to acquire a Masters Degree in Business Administration to improve my managerial and customer service skills. My quest for knowledge and new experiences is endless and I am committed to community development through participation in workshops and events such as Taste of Playa & Think Green Eco Expo. I love to travel and have visited around 40+ countries in my last 10 years of travel. I have stayed in cheap dorms to amazing 5 star hotels in all different cultures and landscapes. I enjoy the simple things in life and my favorite thing is hosting new people that are excited to explore the Riviera Maya. We are always open to suggestions about how to improve our accommodations, but try to keep costs for guests economical. We have amazing staff members that work with me and are just as excited as I am to host you. We invite you to see for yourself what the magical Riviera Maya holds!
