About Matt Weatherbee
We moved from Boston to Playa del Carmen, Mexico in 2008 and we haven't looked back since. We came originally on vacation and saw the opportunity to open a successful property management company. Within 3 months of returning from vacation we had quit our jobs, sold everything (except our condo and car) and drove 4,500 miles from Boston to Playa with our 2 miniature schnauzers. We absolutely love Mexico. The food is fantastic - we eat out often, enjoying a variety of cuisines in one of a kind establishments, most of which are within walking distance of our condo. We have formed a large circle of friends, mostly retired expats, and even host Thanksgiving with usually more than 50 attendees! For Halloween a group of 20+ friends come over, all dressed in costume and we hit 5th Avenue and hand out candy to all the children. It is the most fun day of the entire year! When we are not working, Matt enjoys working out, reading, playing bridge, cooking gourmet meals and visiting the beach. Allan enjoys watching TV, playing blackjack, eating out, going to the movies and also visiting the beach. Matt and Allan
Matt Weatherbee purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Matt Weatherbee chose Gonzalo Guerrero
This condo is right on the front of the building as close to the beach as you can get at Aldea Thai. The Aldea pool is also fantastic and has a nice bar service, as well as great lounge chairs and umbrellas. I love the fitness center as well. You are very close to the beach and 5th Avenue, with its myriad of dining and shopping choices. Please note the plunge pool is non-heated.

We enjoyed the place and it's right at the beach. Nice accommodations. Would definitely stay there again.
Thank you for taking the time to review my property. We look forward in welcoming you again.
Wonderful location just off the beach and close to 5th ave and beyond .
The property has everything you need. Spacious - clean - comfy beds. Might have been nice to have a few English DVDs :). Great stay -just too short. A bit later checkout would be good but at least there is baggage storage.
Aldea Thai was great
Great condo - thanks everyone at NAS. The concierge services were great. Condo was comfortable, beds great - can't beat the location. There are some great taco places right down stairs.
Great place to stay
Great condo, everything you need including a small kitchen. Within walking distance to restaurants, shops, nightlife. Loved the pool and service was great.
Should've asked more questions
We paid alot of money for ocean/pool front which it was not, the plunge pool was very cold and had bugs floating in it. The people next door were very loud most nights between 2am-6am. You also have to leave the complex and walk down the avenue to beach. There was loud construction happening all day. The pool area was beautiful and we had a lovely Argentenian waitress the whole week who was awesome. The hotel doesn't have a private beach section, you have to rent chairs from a beach club. Overall we would probably stay somewhere else next time.
Thank your for your comments Chelsea. The condo and plunge pool are next to the beach but you do need to exit the condo complex to access the beach. The pool is not heated and unfortunately when you were here we were experiencing a rare cold spell. The pool is cleaned 3x a week by maintenance but if it's dirty you can ask at the front desk and they will come by to clean it. In terms of the noise we have no control over the neighbors in other units but if you ask at the front desk they can go talk to them and ask them to quiet down. Regarding construction this is something we were totally unaware of. In fact whenever we are over there it is quiet and there is no signs of construction anywhere. Thank you again for your feedback.
What a Great Time!!
What can I say, The unit was beautiful, the management company has everything ready for your arrival, I had a personal concierge Deborah, who got everything ready for my arrival. She got my personal transportation set for for my family. Did the shopping for the condo so when we arrived everything was there. The location of the condo to the famous 5th ave. was just a 10 min walk everything was so close but not to close to all the noise. I would highly recommend the condo and this management company to anyone who is looking for a vacation getaway!
Thank you to all at NAS Playa for making my families vacation one to remember, We will see you next year!!
