Interaction with guests
Except for rare occasions, I try to pick up all my guests from the local ADO Bus Terminal for each stay. I can also arrange airport pickup service for only 1000 pesos or $50. I will provide detailed instructions on how to travel from the Cancun Airport to Playa del Carmen, for my guests who plan to rent a vehicle. It is important to me to bring guests to the condo, show them what they need to know and be available to answer questions or address concerns that they may have, in person. Then, I like to take my visitors for a quick tour of the neighbourhood to show them where the main points of interest are. Things such as the beach, Fifth Avenue, the Supermarket, Bank Machines and nearby Restaurants. This helps people feel more at home and secure. I will always remain available to help during your entire stay, from the odd question to unexpected changes in your travel plans. I want your stay to be as perfect as possible.
Other things to note
This complex offers on premises parking in both front and rear parking lots. Coco Bongo, one of Playa del Carmen's largest nightclub attractions, is just 2 blocks away. Along with many restaurants and shops, the beach is also within walking distance.
The pool garden is a common area to be enjoyed by everyone. The administration of the condominium asks that all persons respect the following: Please avoid bringing drinking glasses or glass bottles close to the pool area. Cans are fine. Also, please respect the quiet environment, as everyone else in this building is there to relax too. Please no pets and no smoking within the apartment. I want all of my guests to enjoy a very clean, allergen-free apartment with each visit. Thank you.

I am Canadian. I lived in Toronto my whole life, until I traveled to Acapulco in 2008. After that trip, I fell in love with my wife and with Mexico. In 2009, I moved to Acapulco, but I soon learned that there were more opportunities in Playa del Carmen. I left the Pacific Coast, to go to the Atlantic Coast.
By profession, I am an Robot Programmer and was working in the Automation Field when the economic collapse occurred in 2008. I decided that it was time to buy a Spanish Dictionary and make the big move...I haven't looked back since.
I'm the type of person that enjoys different experiences and cultures. I like to travel and meet new people and I really enjoy sharing beautiful spaces in this beach side city, with others from around the world. I want to make your stay as perfect as possible.
