About This Listing
Have a wonderful holiday staying in our Clean, Comfortable & Affordable 2 bedroom condo in fantastic Playa del Carmen Mexico.
Experience outstanding white sand beaches on the warm, turquoise Caribbean sea - memorable dining & shopping on 5th Avenue - world renown ruins, cenotes, theme parks, golfing, scuba diving and just relaxing beside the pool in the private central courtyard. There is something for everyone in this magical area - the Mayan Riviera.
Sleep in supremely comfortable teak canopy beds. Prepare your own meals and drinks (or not) in the fully equipped, modern kitchen. Relax on one of the balconies and watch the passing Mexican day or read in the quite shade of the central courtyard. Free wifi lets you keep in touch with family (or work if you must).
Feel safe with Security Guards and locked gates. The neighborhood is made up of locals and tourists and is very safe. And you are close to all amenities. Some of the best restaurants in Playa are only a few steps away (Agua Chilies, Util Pasta, el Fogon).
Why cramp your family, your friends and your vacation into a tiny hotel room when you can stay in our 1065 square foot (100 SM), 2 bedroom condo instead.
This is our home when we are in wonderful Playa - why not make it yours as well?
Taxis are quite reasonable - 30 - 40 pesos to most areas you will be going to in the town.
All guest must respect the privacy of other people in the building. Quiet time after 10:00 p.m. No loud parties - violators will be immediately evicted without compensation. No smoking in the condo - a $200.00 cleaning fee will be deducted for smoking in the condo - smoking on the deck is allowed.

David has been an amazing host available when we needed him, we can't think him enough.
The Apartment surpassed out expectations! Overall we
Had an amazing experience and I couldn't thank enough David. I strongly recommend this apartment.
L'emplacement idéal, le condo est très propre et bien équipe. Chambres spacieuses et le cœur c'est la piscine comme un oasis de beauté très bien aménagé. Tout est proche, la plage, les restaurants et les épiceries. Aussi les propriétaires de condo dans l'édifice sont charmants et aidant, nul doute qu'on se sent accueilli comme à maison. Je devrait aussi ajouter que ce condo est exceptionnellement bien décoré.
Amazing home. Amazing location. Amazing host.
Expect to provide a cash deposit when you arrive but while it sounds suspect, this is SOP for Mexico, and you will get it back as soon as you checkout. ($200)
David is patient, kind, and provides a lovely bunch of suggestions and you seriously can't beat the location. I plan to book it again next year.
Matthew raises an important point - this Mexico listing is not someones spare bedroom but a professionally run and managed vacation rental in one of the nicest sun locations on the Caribbean. Your deposit is completely safe and receipted. Honest and responsible guests have no worries.
We have operated this way for over 6 years and we have had no complaints.
About the Host, David
Life is a Beach - a white powder beach on the turquoise Caribbean - and it's name is Carmen (Playa del Carmen). My wife and I love Mexico - especially Playa del Carmen and the Mayan Riviera. We love the sun, we love the culture and we love the warm and friendly people. Playa is a bustling Mexican beach town with Mayan roots and a modern European flavour.
My wife and I work long and hard hours when we are back in Calgary (1/2 the year in the cold and the snow). My wife is a senior manager for a local non-profit that works with disabled people - getting them jobs and keeping them active. I have an Architectural Consulting business specializing in barrier free design which is making homes and other buildings accessible and useable by disabled people.
When we are in Playa, we like to sit on the balcony in the morning, drinking our coffee and watching the Mexican day unfold around us. Then it is a short walk to the beach to soak up a few rays, swim in the most incredible warm sea, read a book under a palm tree or just sit on the white powdery sand and watch the people around us - especially good on Sundays when the locals bring down their whole family for a picnic and fiesta.
Or perhaps we plan our next meal and it is a trip to buy groceries or to go to try out a new place for lunch.
Snorkelling & scuba diving are two other great activities we enjoy in the area. There is always lots to do (feel free to ask us for suggestions) Or if you don't want to do anything you can just sit in the courtyard and read a good book.
Our condo in Playa really is our home away from home. It is our retreat from the stress and bad weather we have in Calgary. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
