Beautifully decorated by an American Interior Designer, our top floor Penthouse is situated in one of the best locations in Playa del Carmen at the end of 5th Avenue and only minutes from the famous Mamitas Beach. From the rooftop solarium you have amazing views across the Caribbean sea to Cozumel. This 130sq m living space apartment has a modern fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops/work surfaces, breakfast bar /block and marble floors throughout. Two equally large bedrooms, with king sized beds, both with ensuite shower rooms with high quality finishes and both with satellite SKY TV with an upgraded entertainment package.
The dining area complemented by a fine imported table and chairs leads through to a modern sitting area with cream leather sofas and fine wood furniture. From here you have views through the large patio doors across the terrace and the splash pool, out to the ocean. We have High Speed Internet access and have recently added a Vonage telephone line which gives Free land-line calls to over 60 countries and to cell phones (mobiles) in the US and Canada. We also provide you with a US telephone number so that you can receive calls.
From the outside terrace, stairs lead you up to the rooftop solarium. The views from here are amazing, not only across the treetops to the turquoise ocean but also over the rooftops of Playa del Carmen.
As the sun sets, nothing can be nicer than sitting in your own private splash pool looking out across the blue sea towards Cozumel Island watching the ships go by whilst enjoying a cooling sundowner.
All the best restaurants in town are within walking distance located along the pedestrianised 5th Avenue, therefore a car is not necessary. If you do plan on hiring a car, our personal car space in the ground floor secure garage is at your disposal. The garage has access directly into our ground floor hallway immediately next to the lift.TripAdvisor property ID 2291268...Read more
Located on 5th Avenue and 34th Street, Bosque de Los Aluxes is on the most prestigious street in Playa as well as being only a 5 minute walk to the fabulous Mamitas Beach.

We loved this condo. The sea view upon entering and viewing from most of the living space is fabulous. The condo is well appointed and very comfortable. Loved the phone and internet accessiblity. It is so easy to walk in Playa and this condo is located on 5th ave, close to everything. Love the coffee shop and Cuban restaurant next door. Will come back unless someone else beats us to it. Thanks to Barbara and the management company for a great vacation.

We stayed in this unit for 4 weeks and thoroughly loved it. The first thing you see as soon as you walk in the door is the caribbean sea. You also have this wonderful view from the master bedroom. We were very comfortable here for our extended stay, the kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal or you are right on fifth ave where there are lots of wonderful restaurants. There is a bakery called chez celine right next door where we bought fresh baked bread everyday, and you must try the apple Pie that they have at the coffee cafe that is located right under the Bosque de los aluxes building. A new wine store just opened in the same block (we were their first customers) so is very handy. The Private plunge pool is big enough that we bought a couple of floaties across the street and spent many afternoons floating in the cool water, fantastic!! We really liked this condo, from the wonderful view, the plunge pool , the comfy beds to the great location right on fifth ave and only a couple of blocks to the beach.The vonage phone that we used to call back to Canada for free was an added bonus, also the elevator came in very handy after a trip to the grocery store. There were great views from the roof that can only be enhanced by the addition of some more furniture to make this a more usable space. Thanks so much Barbara.

We have been travelling to Playa del Carmen for almost 12 years and have seen it develop from a quiet seaside town to a trendy city by the sea. We loved this apartment as it offers the best of Playa: it is in an area which has conserved most of its vegetation and we loved sitting on the huge balcony (or in the pool!) and looking out over the trees to sea, reminding us of the Playa del Carmen we once knew. But we also loved the fact that we were only steps away from the buzzing 5th avenue and its array of restaurants and wine bars. It is also close to some of the main supermarkets in town: Walmart and Comercial Mexicana, where we would shop when we opted for a home cooked meal. The kitchen was perfectly equipped and we particularly enjoyed the large breakfast bar which we would gather around when we were cooking! Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us making our stay in Playa del Carmen one of our most memorable holidays. We hope to return soon!

"From every single aspect, this apartment was fabulous. Beautifully styled and equipped, it was a cool, quiet haven with air con. and fans; the sun terraces were delightfully private and the plunge pool a real bonus for cooling off at the end of the day. Its location at the end of 5th avenue meant that everything we needed was easily within walking distance, including the magnificent beach, a huge variety of restaurants and bars, shops of every description, and the bus terminal providing a great network of buses/coaches and a fun way to get up and down the coast. There was so much to see and do I could write a travelogue and have no hesitation whatsoever in saying that we would leap at the chance of a return visit to this gem of an apartment in this idyllic corner of the globe.
