The space

Hello. My name is Karl and I am a native of Toronto, Canada. Like many foreigners, I have been adopted to Mexico and now call this country home. I would like to share this beautiful and fascinating area with others, who are looking to travel on a budget.

This home is right on Avenida Constituyentes in beautiful downtown Playa del Carmen. There is a MEGA Supermarket, the famous 5th Avenue, a ton of small shops not to mention the Caribbean Sea and the Cozumel Ferry Port, all within a few blocks from where you will be staying; no taxis required. This condominium is right in the heart of downtown, where you can enjoy authentic Mexican restaurants, street vendors and a variety of night life here in Playa Del Carmen. Go for lunch, do some shopping and walk just a few blocks to the stunning turquoise water and white sandy beaches.

This apartment is 1 floor up from the ground in this complex and features 2 medium sized bedrooms, a full restroom with shower, a spacious open style living room and modern kitchen. The dining area seats 4 persons. The apartment is equipped with mini split air conditioners and ceiling fans in all rooms to keep the home comfortable. A quiet patio garden is very inviting for an afternoon dip in the pool, reading a book or enjoying an evening drink. Also included is cable TV, wifi, bed linens, bath towels, beach towels and a fully equipped modern kitchen with gas stove, pots, pans, cutlery and microwave. All the conveniences of home.

Guest access

Except on rare occasions, I will personally meet and give access to all guests. House Rules:
1. Please turn off all electrical appliances when leaving the home.
2. Please take out the trash every day.
3. You must obey the established condominium rules and quiet hours.

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.

Karl is an amazing host! He met us in the airport, drove us through Playa del Carmen, showed locations, entrances to the beach, hidden touristic spots to benefit from. Moreover, my mother had issues with walking and we needed to rent a wheel chair. Karl made all arrangements having wheel chair available for our arrival. The apartment is clean with all required set up, air conditioners in each room, wi-fi, Netflix. In the middle of our stay all linens and towels were replaced with fresh ones. The condo complex has nice swimming pool, being cleaned every day, covered under palms from hot sun. 3 big supermarkets in few minutes waling distance (including Walmart). We enjoyed a lot the stay and next time we will definitely stay again there!! Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time at Karl's appartment! We never met Karl but his friend Luis was very kind and helpful. The appartment is close to everything and it looks exactly like the pictures (or even better). Is very clean and spacious, and it has everything you need. I definitely recommend it!

Karl was very welcoming and accommodating. Location could was perfect. We were near the beach (walking distance) and in between the super store MEGA and the main drag 5th Avenue. This could not have been better. The unit was as expected- exactly like the photos. What would make this apartment better: updated couches and new bedspreads. The pool was great! We were able to relax and enjoy a quiet and safe stay. The neighbors were also friendly! I would recommend this place to a family, or low key folks that are not into being loud and rowdy. I will return soon.

Great location and host. Having Karl pick us up from the airport was very helpful. He gave awesome tips during his quick tour around the area. 10 minute or less walk to everything, especially the local food spots, beaches, and 5th Avenue.

We enjoyed our long weekend at Karls condo, everything worked out just great! We had a short water break down which Karl handeled very well and quickly and kept us informed of the situation. We look forward to stay with him again!

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.

Please explore the rest of this advertisement and contact me with any questions or comments that you have. I hope to speak with you soon.
