Ground Floor Directly on the Sand- True Oceanfront
3 bedrooms 2 baths and with a huge patio directly on the sand. This luxury condo with modern styling is unique in Playa as no other unit sleeps you so close to the beach. You don't walk down a hall, you don't walk by a pool area, you don't go out any gate. What you do is pour yourself a cup of coffee and take 10 steps and feel the warm morning sun on your face, the ocean breeze blowing through your hair, and your toes digging in the sand. Don't wait to pack your beach bag, don't fret that you forgot the suntan oil, don't pay a beach club for a bucket of beer. When you stay directly on the ocean, your beach vacation is truly about the beach.
Of course if you want to order some food, the CocoMaya beach waiters will be glad to bring your order directly to your patio. They have even served guests still lying in the hammock! You listen to your own music on the Bose speakers, indoors and out. You make your own frozen drinks if you like (purified water is provided, of course). You even check your email on our free WIFI and if you dare interrupt your paradise with a call to the home front, use our free US telephone line.
The owner of this unit knows luxury and is a vacation rental specialist managing over 60 luxury log homes back in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina, so why wouldn't you expect the 600 thread count linens to follow you to Mexico, too? A fully equipped kitchen even has a French press coffee maker in addition to the traditional drip makes. Why? because the details matter to people with discriminating tastes.
This building has only 20 units, so you are in an exclusive position right in the heart of Playa del Carmen. Walk 2 blocks to the famous Fifth Avenue and shop, dine, and people watch to your heart's content. Convenience stores are at the end of the street, large grocery stores are walking distance, too. Starbucks, if that's your choice, is 1 block south. Dance under the stars at the Blue Parrot, or just spy the infamous fire show from the beach. You just stroll in the sand and get front row viewing if you like.
There is a pool if you wish to rinse off with fresh water and parking if you bring a car (but you certainly don't need one). A professional management company in local to attend to your needs, including free housekeeping service about every other day.

We spent a week in this condo with our family, which included 3 small children. It was absolutely perfect for all of us. Since we were on ground floor, the kids were able to play in the sand while the adults relaxed on the patio or in the hammock. If the kids were napping, we were still able to be outside and enjoying the sunshine. The condo is very nicely furnished, and the location was perfect. There are so many restaurants and bars within walking distance that there was no need for us to have a car. We had been somewhat concerned with safety (especially since we had small children with us), but we never felt unsafe at any time. The management is very visible, and there were also police on patrol on the beach throughout the day. My family and I had one of our best vacations ever, and we are already talking about going back!
