Interaction with Guests

Except for rare occasions, I try to pick up my guests from the local ADO Bus Terminal for each stay. It is important to me to bring them 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 neighborhood to show them where the main points of interest are. Things such as where the beach is, the Supermarket, Bank Machines and nearby Restaurants. This helps people feel more at home and secure. I 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.

  • Thank you Karl for being the best host. You helped make our stay in Playa del Carmen the best. My grandsons really enjoyed their time in your condo and we all wanted to thank you for taking us to Xplore and then driving us into Cancun. You answered our questions and even helped us learn some basic Spanish. This particular condo was quite hot as it has only one ac unit in the 2nd bedroom but Karl was more than willing to pick up another window ac unit to help with the heat. We would gladly stay in one of the properties that Karl has to offer. He will look after you very well if you need the help. Gail

  • My family and I really enjoyed our stay with Karl. He is an incredibly accommodating host. The location is fantastic and the room was exactly like it shows in the pictures. Karl picked us up at the train station and gave us a tour of Playa and picked us up when we were leaving and dropped us at the ferry for Cozumel. Great place and host would definitely stay there again.

  • Great location, slightly away from the main tourist strip, but only 3 short blocks walk to 5th avenue. Nice pool in the gardens which we used most days. Karl is extremely helpful, gave us a great intro and sorted out our queries/issues very quickly and efficiently.

  • Karl was an amazing and gracious host! He showed us around Playa Del Carmen when we first arrived, to make us familiar and more comfortable with our surroundings. He did our laundry, took us to the bus terminal and promptly replied to all of our queries. The condo was beautiful and comfortable and extremely close to everything but far enough away so you didn't have the noise of the Main Street. We are already planning on coming back and will most definitely stay at Karl's condo again! Highly recommend to anyone looking for a place in Playa Del Carmen. Thanks so much for everything Karl! :)

  • We had a great stay at Karl's place! It's in a really great location, 3 blocks from the action, and surrounded by great places to eat and a giant supermarket. It is kept incredibly clean and tidy, and Karl has thought of everything! He was super helpful, picking us up and orienting us. We highly recommend staying at his lovely condo!

  • Aside from the fact that we were rained out the entire time in Playa del Carmen, we had an absolutely lovely stay in Karl's condo!

    Location: The condo is ideally located just blocks from 5th Avenue and the beach and right next door from a huge Wal-mart-esque store so you can stock up on anything you need or might have forgotten. It's removed enough from the heart of the action so you don't have pedestrians milling right outside your door at all hours of the day or night but there are still plenty of cute, little (relatively less) touristy restaurants and stores right outside. The area itself (like essentially all of PdC) is incredibly safe as well!

    Condo: The apt is extremely clean, spacious, has everything you'd need for a stay, and looks even nicer than the photos. The beds are fairly basic and the walls are on the thin side, so keep that in mind if you are particular about your mattress or a light sleeper. Altho we didn't use the pool (thanks, "uncharacteristic" weather system), it looked very inviting and clean.

    Host: Karl is seriously the best host I've ever had as an Airbnb guest - he was incredibly attentive, responsive within minutes if not hours, polite, friendly, and constantly went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves (for ex. as soon as I mentioned my mom would prefer an extra blanket, he was over within 2 hrs!). He took the time to acquaint us with the vicinity, gave us tips on his personal favorite places and activities, and completely accomodated our check-in / check-out schedule.

    In short, this condo is a great value for money and home base for your stay in Playa del Carmen, and Karl will do an excellent job in taking care of you!

  • My two kids and I can't say enough good things about our stay at Playa de Carmen with Karl as host. He was there at the bus station, gave us a tour of Playa, waited while we shopped at the Mega for food,and was there for us when we needed help. he even gave us a ride to the airport at 4:30 Am! The apartment is in a great location. You can walk to any beach and to 5th Ave easily, yet it is very quiet. The apartment has everything you need including beach towels and a full kitchen. We definitely hope to stay with Karl again and would recommend his place and hospitality to anyone. Buena suerte Karl and muchísima gracias, Jill, Lucas and Vera.

  • Karl is a superb host. He fetched us from the ferry terminal and took us on a guided tour of the neighbourhood. He also dropped us at the car hire firm and even offered to drive us to our next destination when there was a problem with the car hire. The apartment is in a good location, an easy 4 block walk to 5th Avenida, but also right next to MEGA supermarket, and around the corner from several great local Mexican restaurants. The apartment is well equipped and there is a cool pool in the complex to escape the heat. We spent 3 days at New Year and Playa del Carmen was hectic and the infrastruture was creaking. Water and Wifi would intermittenty and unexpectedly turn off. Karl was always available to answer any queries and offered to provide extra water (which was not required in the end). Karl also offered us a Mexican mobile at no extra cost. We didn't need it but it was a great offer from him. I recommend Karl as a great host and his apartment as a value for money place to stay. Thanks Karl. Great host!

  • Karl was a great host and the apartment was fantastic. Clean, great location, comfortable furniture, everything necessary to have an enjoyable stay in Playa del Carmen.

  • Karl's apartment is nice and big and in a good location. It is in a safe, secure and quiet apartment complex. The pool is very nice and clean. It is very close to 5th Street and also a short walk to the beach. Also very close to the Mega Supermarket and Walmart. It was easy to buy groceries and walk back to the apartment. Karl was easy to communicate with and happy to answer questions. Recommended.

About
I'm a native of Toronto, Canada, born and raised. I lived in Toronto my whole life, until I travelled to Acapulco in 2008. After that trip, I fell in love with Mexico and my wife. In 2009, I moved to Acapulco, but the deteriorating economy pushed me from the Pacific Coast, to where I am now, on the Atlantic Coast. By profession, I am an Electro-mechanical Technologist and was working in the Automation Field when the economic collapse occurred in 2009. 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 love to travel and to do quality work. I like a challenge and a little adventure and one of my passions is renovating homes. I enjoy upgrading interiors and sharing this beautiful 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 write to me with any questions or comments that you may have. I hope to speak with you soon.
