It was easy to communicate with Catherine online. She responded promptly and answered all the questions.
Now about the apartment and location. If you do not plan to rent a car, forget about this place. It is not 900 m from the beach, it is two (2) kilometers (according to a friend’s car odometer). It is a long and unsafe walk because there is no sidewalk and there is traffic due to two beach hotels at the end of the road. On rainy days it is impossible to walk whatsoever as there is no drainage and there are huge puddles on the road.
It is about ten minute walk to the thoroughfare where you can flag a minivan (collectivo) or taxi. In about 15 minutes they will bring you to downtown Playa for 15 (per person) and 70 pesos correspondingly. For more comfort and better seats use minibuses Cancun Express or Playa Express. They cost the same as collectivos.
The apartment is spacious but we could not use the bedrooms because bed linen was damp and there was a strong smell of mold. The air conditioners did not help. We had to sleep on a futon (sofa-bed) in the living room. The smell was there, too but not as strong. Maybe because it is a big room. Unfortunately, there is no washer and dryer which is a big disadvantage in such a humid climate. Walking a block to the public laundry is very inconvenient.
If the above is not important to you, you can rent this place.
Catherine´s appartment was very spacious and it was probably our best accomodation in Mexico (we stayed at 4 different places). The humidity was quite high in the rooms, but it was tolerable. Locality wasn´t very good - far from the nearest beach (ca 2 km) and far from the Playa center, so you have to rent a car or a bike. We prefered to drive to Akumal (about half an hour drive), where is much nicer beach with corals and turtles.
The communication with Catherine was very good and she was a pleasant host.
Catherine es una de mis huéspedes favoritas, no nos conocimos personalmente, pero ocupó el deprtamento para estar cerca de su hija que acababa de ser mamá.
Ella y su hermana dejaron el departamento muy limpio y organizado, cosa que es muy raro encontrar.
Me dejó comentarios como feed-back los cuáles tomará muy en cuenta.....
