This quiet, gated condominium complex in the center of Playa del Carmen, consists of 30 units and a pool garden courtyard. Residents are mostly retirees from various countries. Enjoy restaurants, the beach and return home for a quiet night's sleep.

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 central air conditioning 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 provide 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.

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 also provide an airport pickup service for only 1000 pesos or $50. 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 place we stayed was really good. It is close to everything but not so close to nightclubs that that noise was too annoying. It'd amenities were in good order and Karl himself was friendly, professional and helpful. Apart from his great place he personally made our holiday easy and stress free. Highly recommend!

The location is great. Closer to the beach, to the Mega market and walmart, even closer to one of the most delicious restaurants in Playa del Carmen, and very safe for my girlfriend and I. We stayed enough to walk around at night and there's taxis everywhere. Place was big, clean and comfortable and has all the amenities you may need for a quick vacation, including a pristine pool. Host was great in communicating with us. I'll be back soon.

What a great place! super clean and closer to everything (the beach 15 min, the 5th avenue 5 min, the grocery store 5 min, corn store 2 min and restaurants) Karl and Luis were easy to reach to answer our questions and they make our stay in Playa a perfect vacation. Luis changed our sheets and bath and beach towels once a week. The only problem we had was that the water-drain was completely blocked, but Luis fixed it quickly. The kitchen was well equipped with the necessary utensils to cook simple food. Luis is a very honest person and picked us up at the airport on our way back. You can trust Luis perfectly and leave your passport and money in the apartment without any problem. There is sometimes a bit of noise in the morning because there is a construction right next to the building, but nothing terrible. The pool was very fresh and clean, there is no draft in the pool area. The apartment is simple and not very modern but comfortable and clean. The air conditioning worked very well. We would definitely return to Karl's condo and highly recommend it for a great vacation.

Response from Karl:
Hello, Firelei. Thank you for this wonderful review. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your vacation time here in Playa del Carmen. Also, I appreciate your comments on my associate, Luis. We are both very honest and hard working. We try to make each guest experience as pleasant as possible, from airport pick up/drop off to every detail in our 4 vacation homes. Unfortunately, things like clogged drains will happen in any home from time to time. With so many people staying with us, it is sometimes difficult to get ahead with upgrades and renovations. However, we will do everything that we can to fix issues as they occur. I would love to have you guys back again at any time, Firelei. I'm happy that you made it home safely and I look forward to your next visit to Playa del Carmen.

Karl's place was practical for our stay. Minutes walk from beach,shopping, transportation, night life and dining. It was also very clean when we arrived and Karl made sure it stayed clean throughout our stay. I'm looking forward to bring my family next year and get the same or similar place to stay as it is great way to get authentic and safe experience in this corner of the world.

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.
