About the property

Beautiful condo 2 blocks from the beach and 2 blocks from 5th Avenue

Beautiful 2 bedroom + 2.5 bathroom condo in Playa del Carmen. We are the happy owners of a condo in Cancun (which has great reviews, check property 487294 here at VRBO) and this great condo in fantastic Playa del Carmen.

Here in Playa (as the locals call it) we have the best of 2 worlds within a 5-10 minute walk: outstanding beaches (with fantastic beach clubs) and the famous 5th Avenue, both just 2 blocks away, but at the same time our condo is in a very calm neighborhood in a beautiful new building.

The ocean views from the rooftop pool are stunning, please look at the pictures we have posted. It is an ideal place to spend a lazy afternoon after a very active day, either with family, friends, your special other one or even with a good book and a glass of wine or cup of coffee.

We, as fellow travellers and users of this condo, have taken a lot of care in having equipped the condo with everything that you need. We want you to have a great stress free holiday.

The company that manages our property can offer different options to add to your holiday: private chef (catering services in the privacy and convenience of the condo or the rooftop area); babysitting services; tours & excursions (scheduled tours to different places near Playa del Carmen such as Tulum, Chichen Itza, among others); housekeeping services; laundry services; airport transportation; golf experiences and spa options (a full range of pampering services).

Families are very welcomed at our condo, with children of any age. For adult only groups (no parents in the grouo), due to our building's bylaws we have a 25+ year restriction regarding all-adult groups. This is a nonsmoking property.

About Humberto

We are the owners of a condo in Cancun which has great reviews (property 489274 here at VRBO) and this condo in Playa del Carmen. We are a family of 5, with 3 girls aged 13, 10 and 7 that enjoy visiting both Cancun and Playa del Carmen as well as all the outstanding places and activities available in this beautiful region.

Humberto purchased this condo in 2015

Why Humberto chose Zazil-ha

We love Playa del Carmen as it is a change of pace location vs Cancun, with a combination of a calmer environment but also world class dinning, great shopping, a fantastic nightlife, beautiful beaches and lots of activities ... or a perfect quiet place just to relax and unwind. It is up to you.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location. We are in the best neighborhood in Playa del Carmen, within walking distance of beautiful beaches, restaurants and shopping venues. You can have the calmest and most relaxed vacation or a holiday full of activities and adventures.

Excellent Location, Clean and Modern Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Humberto and Lorena for letting us stay in your vacation home. My family and I had an excellent time in Playa, everything about your condo was excellent, from the location to the amenities in your condo (the AC was heaven!). My daughters loved the pool and being able to walk to 5nta Avenida everyday, they had so much fun. We rented a car and the secured underground garage worked perfectly for us, Xcaret and Tulum are surprisingly a short drive, The condo is very spacious and there is a washer/dryer which was extremely helpful, the house keeper was friendly and did an excellent job, the condo has beautiful shiny floors and she left the place looking and smelling fresh and clean. Ivan was helpful and it was very kind of him to accommodate our early check out, I have already recommended this place to my family and friends, and i definitely plan on going back. If you book this place you will not be disappointed! We fell in love with Playa del Carmen.

Fantastic condo and management company

  • 5 of 5

Great, very clean condo in a great location - the quiet end of Avenida Quinta, a few blocks from the beach. We were so appreciative of our host, Ivan, too who helped us get transport from the airport, take a tour to Akumal/Tulum and answered questions early in the morning and late at night. Thank you for a great stay and we'd highly recommend it!

A well-kept condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Located close to the end of the main shopping street, this condo is close to both the action and the beach but without the congestion further south.

The condo itself is spacious and modern with good amenities and underground parking. The rooftop pool is fresh and meticulously cleaned.

From the pre-arrival contact to the checkout, the manager Ivan was very attentive and provided great service. The dryer broke during our stay and Ivan managed to get it fixed promptly despite the new year holiday!

The only not so good thing was the construction across the street, but as they had their grand opening the day we left, that should no longer be an issue. The sound proofing is not top notch, so if you do not plan to be out until after midnight earplugs could be good against the occasional intoxicated passerby.

Our damage deposit was refunded at record breaking speed.

A highly recommended accommodation that we would be happy to visit again.

Owner's Response: Frederik, thank you for staying with us. We are happy that you enjoyed the condo, and that you found it spacious and modern. As you mention, our location allows to be close to the main restaurants and shops, while staying in a residential and quiet area of Playa. We hope to have you back with us in the near future.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

My family, including two kids and one baby, stayed in this apartment for about 11 days.

The only thing that was negative about this apartment was noise from construction of the building right over the street from the balcony. But I guess in some weeks they will finish with construction of that building. Noise from construction was also an issue on the roof. Since PDC is experiencing a construction boom nowadays, this is something that is difficult to avoid, maybe especially in this part of the town.

Everything else about the apartment was perfect. It was clean, modern, fully equipped and the host (Ivan from Happy Adress) was very helpful and quick to respond. They cleaned the apartment every three days or so.

The location, between 5th avenue and the beach is great. The beach (Coco Beach i think..) is also not so crowded as Mamitas Beach is.

Modern, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had four nights in this modern unit. The manager met us to let us into the building, the carpark and the unit. There is a remote control to let you into the carpark which is situated around the side of the building.

The condo is close to 5th Avenue (at one end of 5th Avenida with Portal Maya at the other end).

The condo is modern with two bathrooms and an extra toilet. There is a washing machine and drier to use. A full kitchen with oven, microwave, blender and coffee maker. There is plenty of room for a family with bunks in one room and a single, a main bedroom with a queen bed and a fold out sofa in the lounge. We did not sleep on the top bunk as the bunk moved too much. This may be alright for a small child.

The living area was spacious and comfortable. The air-conditioning worked well.

A maid service came halfway through our stay and cleaned and made the beds.

There is an intercom at the entrance of the building. If one of your party or a visitor keys in the condo number, the bell will ring in the condo for someone to answer. You can then go and let your party into the building by pushing the button close to the door. Other than that, we just used the garage access to get into the building.

The pool on the rooftop is nice and refreshing.

Humbreto was really quick and helpful when communicating with us.

This is a great place to stay and we highly recommend it.
