About the property

Condo, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

' BEST VACATION WE EVER HAD!' This is what we hear over and over again from those who stay at our penthouse. This outstanding penthouse located in the beautiful Caribbean paradise of Playa Del Carmen, Mayan Riveria, features fabulous indoor and outdoor living areas. The location is superb, calle 26th and Cozumel,1/2 block from the world famous Mamitas and Kool Tukan Beach , and one block from 5th avenue, a 20 block, pedestrian only street, where there are wonderful restaurants, outdoor cafes, boutiques and shops. A short walk can take you to the ferry for a visit to Cozumel or a 40 minute taxi or bus ride and you can experience Cancun. Many who visit say it is the best vacation they ever had without ever leaving Playa Del Carmen.

The condo is perfect for an extended family, 4 couples, a gathering of friends, or just a romantic getaway for two, with over 3,800 SF of living area. The main floor has three bedrooms; one with a king sized bed and private full bath, two with two twins ( can be made into a king) and they share a full, tile and glass bath. On the main level is a fully equipped kitchen, elegant dining area that seats 8 and a comfortable living room. Additionally, there is a porch with outside dining area, complete with teak table and chairs. The next level has a very spacious second master suite with King sized bed, plus an additional double bed, and private full tile and glass bath. This room leads to a private 30 by 30+ ft balcony with palms trees, garden area, lounge chairs and another table and chairs. On the top level is a private 20 by 20 rooftop terrace with great panoramic views including an Ocean "peek". There is one private parking space for a medium sized car, cable TV, wireless internet and washer and dryer. All linens and one weekly cleaning is included along with beach towels.

There are only 11 units in this building so it is very tranquil and the pool area is lovely, with a wonderful tropical garden area.

The location can not be beat. 1/2 block to the beach and one block to 5th avenue, a 20 block pedestrian street with lots of fabulous restaurants, shops, boutiques and outdoor cafes. Water sports and activities abound so you will never be at a loss for things to do.

This is a place you will want to return to again and again. Many of our visitors have!

About Kate Frederick

For the last ten years Playa Del Carmen has been the place I returned to for a relaxing and wonderful vacatiion. I have over 20 years property management experience and 25 years in Real Estate in the USA. In the five years I looked at properties in Playa Del Carmen this was the one penthouse I could not live without. It has the most space by far of any I have seen and immense outdoor living area as well, with fabulous panoramic views.

Kate Frederick purchased this condo in 2008

Why Kate Frederick chose Playa del Carmen

This particular location can not be beat. You are 1/2 block from Mamitas Beach and one block to Quinta avenida. Everything is in easy walking distance. I love how from this condo you can walk to anything and everything you want in Playa Del Carmen.

What makes this condo unique

What I like the best is all the space, views and ocean breezes. With eight to ten people there you do not feel like you are on top of each other. The outdoor living area is incomparable. Beautiful terraces on all three levels. Also, the location in the heart of Playa Del Carmen.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about this place. Stayed with another family of four (total of four adults and 4 kids staying there) and the place was ideal for us. The place is huge and never felt crowded. It's as nice as it looks in the pictures.

I don't think you could ask for a better location. A couple of blocks from the beach and a couple of blocks from 5th Avenue (and the quieter section of 5th avenue). Everything you need is a couple of blocks away. If you are someone that likes it to be dead quiet at night it might not be the place for you as it can get loud at night, but it was never an issue for us.

The people that run the place are great. One of the air conditioners broke down twice during our stay (these things happen), but they fixed it the same day. There was also nobody using the place the day before or after us and the let us have an early check in / late check out. They were easy to get a hold of and always really helpful. Even the maid that came to clean the place was really nice!

If I was making plans to come back to Playa Del Carmen the first thing I would do is book this place

Owner's Response: Hi Chris, Thanks so much for your kind words. It is a great place for a large family gathering. Sorry about the A/C unit. I do have a service contract to make sure they come out right away! Thanks again and I hope to have you stay at our condo in the future. Kate

Couldn’t agree more with the reviewer below who “can’t imagine a better condo at a better location"

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent an amazing time at Playa Inn. The unit is beautiful, clean and comfortable and has magnificent views of the ocean – from three levels! It is located in a great part of Playa – the north side. The condo building is just off busy, restaurant-lined 5th Avenue and in the same block as a fun bar called PG’s that sometimes has live bands but we were never bothered by noise, probably because the unit faces the ocean and is just one block back from the beach. We have stayed in “downtown” Playa (south of 18th/Constituyentes) many times, but find this area (“Little Italy”) to be our favorite, especially for families.

The unit itself is tremendously spacious and comfortable and would accommodate more people than our small group quite comfortably. The upstairs bedroom was perfect for our teenage son and could have been shared with one or two more, as there is a futon in the room and an adjoining, spacious bathroom.

The quality of finish and furnishings is very high – the pictures, despite being lovely, do not fully convey the level of comfort of the unit. The bedrooms are comfortable and private. The bathrooms were clean and kept spotless by the regular maid service, and the kitchen is well stocked. A friendly delivery service brings 5 gallon jugs of water on a regular basis, for a very small fee. The washer and dryer are right in the unit; we normally hung our laundry out on the line on the terrace which was an additional convenience. The unit also has two folding beach chairs, so you have the option of paying for loungers at Mamitas Beach Club (right at the entrance to the beach) and having drinks and food brought out to you or grabbing a few (cheaper) cervezas at Oxxo (a block away, right on the way to the beach) and sitting for free. We did both and enjoyed each option.

Beyond the comfortable interior, the outdoor spaces are wonderful. We had imagined spending a lot of time on the top two (of three!) terraces, but found that we spent just as much time on the main level – having breakfast on the terrace, a game of cards, or just enjoying the view of the ocean. The courtyard pool was a wonderful oasis on hot afternoons. On a previous trip, in a different condo, we enjoyed a roof top pool and did not think we would spend much time in the pool here, but we spent nearly every afternoon floating, swimming, reading and lounging by the pool. It was beautifully maintained – always clean and welcoming.

Playa Inn, the Condo with the Mostest!

  • 5 of 5

This is the location my family wants to come to when we plan our family vacations! Our older children fly independently to Cancun International Airport then catch the PDC bus (ask airport officials, easy to find) and the condo is a short walk from the bus terminal. A passport, flipflops, bathing suit, t-shirt and shorts are all you need to put together an unforgettable and relaxing vacation experience! Once you arrive at Playa Inn everything comes together so beautifully. Condo is equipped with everything. The property owner (my friend) is an experienced traveller and landlord. You need to check this out!

Outstanding condo for a family vacation or three couples

  • 5 of 5

This condo was so spacious for our family of 6. There was plenty of space for the two families and myself. I loved the natural ocean breezes with ocean views on every level. The third, rooftop balcony with oceanview was amazing! The amount of exterior living space of the three balconies gave us so much room. The location was perfect. The beach was a few minute walk along with shops and restaurants. Everything was convenient. You could get frozen yogurt, coffee, sandwiches, pizza, beer all within a block walk. The beach was by far the best beach we saw in Playa. Great for swimming, no rocks, which is a problem at a number of beaches in Playa. All in all I can't image better condo at a better location. This was my second time staying here and I will be back next year and stay here.

Penthouse Condo Near Everything

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo 2 minutes from Mamitas Beach, which we felt was the nicest beach in Playa. We had nice views of the beach without the noise of the beachfront clubs. It was also very convenient to the restaurants & shopping of 5th Ave.Top floor penthouse unit has 2 bdrms w. 2 full baths on main level with nice porch; Another bdrm,full bath, & open patio on 2nd level; Also rooftop patio @ 3rd level.

Nicely decorated & very clean & well maintained. It's certainly large enough for a much larger group than our family.

We would highly recommend this condo!

Spacious penthouse fully equipped & great location

  • 5 of 5

We just made our reservations for Brisa Azul and will be returning to PDC for one week in April 2010! This will be our forth visit to PDC and the third stay at this wonderful penthouse condo. I have a secret to share with gals whose husbands have a hard time finding time for vacation...bring them to Playa Del Carmen! It did the trick for me! This condo has all the amenities to bring ease and comfort to your vacation. Not only is Brisa Azul beautifully decorated and architecturally stunning, it is spacious, clean and new, and filled with comfortable furniture. There are plenty of clean towels and bed linens. It's got a great modern kitchen, three really nice tile and granite bathrooms and three good size bedrooms with really comfy beds. We love hanging our on the terraces when we're there. Brisa Azul has three spacious terraces which offer privacy and amazing views of the Caribbean. The roof top terrace is fun for coffee and sunrises and sunsets and cocktails! Because it is conveniently located it is very easy to walk from one end of town to the other. Fifth Ave. is just one block north and the beach is one block south. Everything is flip-flop casual. It is possible to shop on Fifth Ave. for your groceries but it'll be more expensive and limited. We grocery shop at Mega which is a short walk and where locals shop for their families. Shopping there is a cultural experience and the store has it's own tortilla machine where you can watch fresh tortillas being made! And, make sure to put aside a couple of extra dollars ($2 including tip) and hire a cab so lugging your bags home is easy. If you don't feel like cooking try La Frigata (next block north) for fish tacos (three tacos and two beers $7) and La Capri Choza on Fifth Ave. is my favorite for dinner. If you want to visit Cozumel the docks for the ferry is a short walk. There are wonderful reefs for snorkeling in PDC, our favorite is Coco Beach (up near 40th.) Bring your gear, the condo has a diving flag for your use. Look for travel guides on 5th to take you to your adventures. This is a gated facility with a security guard and maintenance worker. It has conveniently been outfitted with a combination lock box for the keys so there is none of the frantic last minute search for the keys! Everything is there...you'll love it...we do!!!
