Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)
About Laurie, Owner
We have been traveling to Mexico for more than fifteen years and have fallen in love with the culture and the people we have met on our travels. It was a dream of ours to own our piece of paradise, and in October of 2008 we finally did it! It's great to be within walking distance of beaches, restaurants and shopping, yet located in the peaceful gated community of Playcar. We love sharing it with others! Laurie and Mark, Beaumont, Texas
Laurie, Owner purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Laurie, Owner chose Playacar Fase II
Once we decided on Playa del Carmen for our vacation home, we wanted a place that was an easy walk to everything we love - 5th Avenue restaurants, beaches, shopping, bus station for tours, etc. Casa de Sueno is uniquely situated on the most northern edge of the Playacar neighborhood, which means that all of the fun activities of 5th Avenue are within an easy walking distance, yet we still enjoy the peacefulness and safety of our gated community. There were many nice properties for us to choose from, but location was key to us. We couldn't be happier with our home.
What makes this Condo unique
Unlike many condo vacation rentals in the area, the layout of ours is quite unique. Many other condos are long and narrow, to maximize the number of units with a small balcony view. We enjoy a wide, spacious living area with a large living/kitchen/dining area open to the double size balcony. Two couples or a family staying with us will never feel like you are living on top of each other. We visit our home often, and provide for our guests the same amenities that we enjoy while we are there - so no need to pack the hairdryer, pool floats or beach towels. We love sharing our new home and Playa del Carmen with others and want you to have the vacation you've dreamed of!

Home away from home!
The condo was fabulous as well as the property manager and her team! They were so accommodating and resourceful! We loved the Tulum and Cenote trip and spending the days at a nearby beach club! Our stay was absolutely amazing!
We love this place!
My husband and I have just returned home from our second annual trip to Casa de Sueno. We just love it there!
The condo is in the quiet Playacar neighborhood with other condos and lovely homes. It is a perfect location. We have no need for a car because we walk everywhere; the beach, restaurants, 5th avenue and the grocery store. We let the property manager arrange a private van to pick us up at the airport in Cancun and return us there at the end of our stay for $70 USD each way. For major grocery trips we walk to the store and use a taxi to carry us back with our groceries.
The condo itself is stylishly decorated, clean, up-to-date and furnished with absolutely everything one could need. It truly feels as though the owners of a tastefully decorated and organized home have just walked out. We comfortably prepared breakfast and lunch there and ate dinner at one of the numerous restaurants within walking distance.
We spend much of our time on the balcony which overlooks the golf course, manicured yard and pool. The balcony is shaded and the perfect place to read, enjoy breakfast, or observe the birds that come to roost in the tree nearby.
For those looking for more activity, the tourist area on 5th Avenue is just a 6 minute walk. The ferry to Cozumel for a day of snorkeling is also there.
Both the condo owners (Laurie and Mark) and the local property managers are very responsive. An in-person orientation to the property is provided upon arrival and any questions or minor issues that arise during our stays have been addressed immediately.
Our visits have been easily the most relaxing of all our vacations and we look forward to continuing our tradition of returning annually!
The condo was very relaxing and provided everything we needed during our stay. We did not use the pool but it was lovely to look at while sitting on the balcony watching the birds. The location is optimal for walking to the beach, shopping or to dine. A couple of days we had rain showers and umbrellas were available to use as well as beach bags. Really the only thing we needed that was not provided were our clothes. Condo is very clean and tastefully decorated. The notebook provided was so useful when choosing a place to eat or something to do.. we even ordered in using instructions in the info book. We are so thankful to Laurie and Mark for sharing their home with us and definitely highly recommend vacationing there if you are looking for a stress free vacation.
Summarizing condo only, I was very please with it. Comfortable, roomy, nice bed, great kitchen.
Avoided cold weather....weather in Playa was fabulous! Property was very nice. Kitchen was well equipped (big priority for me). Pool was lovely but really too cold to use because of chilly nights. We were on 3rd floor and stairs were a real problem for 3 seniors. We were really too far from town and had to walk everywhere. Not a problem for younger vacationers but between stairs and long walk to town, it was difficult. We had a car but traffic so horrible we couldn't really drive into town and finding parking space impossible! Younger, more mobile renters will love this property..
Lyn, I am so glad that you enjoyed the condo. I don't believe that we have ever had three guests in their 70's staying in our home, but I can understand that you would not enjoy two flights of stairs - it's unfortunate that you could not find a first floor unit for your trip. I am surprised that you felt that it was long walk to town, as our other guests LOVE our location, and even mention it in their reviews as one of their favorite things about the condo! It's just an 8 minute walk to 5th Avenue so we never advise guests to rent cars in Playa. Taxi's are plentiful and easy to use in town, if needed, and rental cars are only helpful if you are leaving the city to explore the areas outside of town. Thank you for staying with us and for the nice compliments!
Clean, well-equppped condo with a great location and awesome pool.
This is the perfect spot to enjoy Playa. It is close to the beach and all the fun, food and drink the city has to offer. Both the owner and the property management company were friendly and so responsive. Such a terrific guide book in the condo that tells you all you need to know. We used the pass to the Reef Club and had a blast. I can't say enough good things. I want to go back right now...
Great location, beautiful condo and pool.
We really enjoyed this property and hope to stay here again. The condo is beautiful and very well stocked with anything and everything you could need for a beach vacation. The pool is amazing and was never crowded. All of the attractions of the 5th Ave area are a short walk. We walked in and around every day with a 3 year old and a 6 year old without any problems. Lastly, we had a great experience with the owners and property manager. Everyone was extremely helpful and attentive. If you stay here, read the binder the owners put together. It has so much great information about the area.
Our condo is located in the perfect location for all the fun things that the Riviera Maya has to offer! After a peaceful nights' sleep in a safe, quiet neighborhood, you are within easy walking distance to the beaches, 5th Avenue, shopping, restaurants and local transportation for tours and visiting the ruins. No noisy nightclubs downstairs or across the street. While many condos in Playacar Phase 2 are located 25 minutes or more from town, we are just a short 5-10 minute walk away from 5th Avenue. It's the best of both worlds!
