Aqua Terra - PH 2 Bed, 3 Bath -Private Roof Top w/Jet Tub, BBQ, WIFI, Cell Phone
Imagine living just a couple blocks from the beautiful, white sandy beaches and turquoise waters of Playa del Carmen, Mexico. You walk home from a day of snorkeling at the nearby reef to relax in your private, roof top Jacuzzi. Your significant other is grilling on your rooftop BBQ some fresh grouper you bought earlier from a local fisherman. You jump out out of the Jacuzzi to catch the last bit of sun while you lounge about with a soft ocean breeze blowing though your hair and gently drying your skin. Sounds like paradise?
Well, if you can imagine it, it can be yours! Right here at Aqua Terra you have found your perfect vacation rental home.
This Playa del Carmen vacation condo has been upgraded from top to bottom. The penthouse is the jewel. It is like no other in Playa del Carmen. It has been designed with all the luxuries in mind...from the tasteful Mayan Artwork, to the shaded lounging areas, to the full BBQ with preparation area and sink, to another social/eating area, to the Jacuzzi, and finally the bathroom w/shower. The terreace overlooks the park across the street, so you always have a pleasant view.
In the main living area, there are terraces on both sides of the condo. You can enjoy breakfast out on the patio with a cooling cross breeze.
The vacation condo has split ac units which means that you can control the air conditioning temperature in each of the rooms for your comfort.
There living area has ample seating. You can enjoy satellite TV and watch some of your favorite shows from the US or Europe. Many of the programs are in English. All of the artwork and artifacts are original in the condo. So enjoy some of the interesting pieces!
Thinking of a dinner party? The dining table seats six and the kitchen is fully stocked with all you will need to prepare a gourmet meal. If coffee in the morning and frozen drinks on the roof top are more you style, don't worry...we have a coffee maker and blender for you! We have upgraded the lighting and faucets for your cooking pleasure!
Both of the bedrooms have king size beds and the linens have been imported. Both closets are ample and there is additional storage in handy seating benches. All you really need here in Playa is your bathing suit and some comfortable casual clothes. Ladies, no need for high heels as 5th Ave is full of interlocking bricks! There are terraces off of each of the bedrooms. The bedrooms are situated on separate sides of the condo, so you have a sense of privacy. The master bedroom has an en suite bath.
Finally, relax while the water from your rain shower cools you down. We have added these shower heads to give you this luxurious experience as well as added additional cabinetry for storage.
Another sanctuary is the pool at Aqua Terra. It runs the length of the building and is beautifully landscaped with a covered lounging area. One part of the pool is very shallow and great for young kids to play in or for adults to cool off in.
We have WIFI inside the condo. We also provide you with a local Mexico cell phone. Bottled water is provided upon arrival. Maid service is once a week but can be more frequent if requested. Upon request, we also have 50% off passes at The Gym.
You home-away-from-home is located on 34th Street and 20 th Ave. This is the area where many expats live and socialize.
There is a bit of a more upscale, yet local vibe where we are. Not so many tourist shops selling t shirts. There are many great restaurants at reasonable prices here versus further South.
You are close to Mamitas Beach Club, Kool Beach Club, Coco beach, Sangra Li Beach, And Canibal Royal Beach Club. The beaches on this end of town are much nicer as well and have not experienced the beach eroision which you find South of 16th Street. The hidden gem that most people do not know about is the nearby reef. No need to take a tour, just walk right out and start snorkeling!
You may want to reconsider cooking when two blocks away is 5th Ave, a walking pedestrian mall, with hundreds of restaurants at your disposal. we are located on 34th Street and 20th Ave, across from the park. There has been a tremendous amount of growth in restaurants over the past few months just at the end of our street and the next block, including La Bodeguita del Medio (Cuban), Chez Celine (French Bakery), Como Como (Mediterranean), Da Gigi (Italian), Aqua Chilies (fresh seafood tacos at great prices),Coffee Cafe (coffee and desserts), Xocolatier (coffees, desserts, salads, and sandwiches), La Portena (Argentinian),Mille Voglie (Italian), Michelandia Sport Bar, Chocolotier Niugatier (French Chocolate Shop), Sala Rosa (Lounge), Dios de la Arena (Bar), Season Bistro (Mediterranean), Club de Cerveza (Bar), Maya Luna (upscale Mexican), Bare Mar (seafood),Luna Maya (upscale Mexican),Drupas 38 (Mediterranean), The Winery (wine shop and restaurant), Reva (juices, healthy options), Origenes (upscale Mexican), Pummarola (Italian), a Juice Bar, Pacha Mama (Mexican),Quinto Cantina (bar), Green Box (bagels, fruit juices, salads), Chitepin (economical Mexican), Disfruita (Juice Bar), Dello Sport (Italian), Patty Putines (pastries), Nikkori (sushi), Aloha Grill (Mexican), Mexican-Biergarden (beer garden), Banana Pizza (pizza), Cava Veintess (wine bar), and several more. It seems that every week there is something new to discover to eat! These are just the ones that are with in 2 blocks! Just a 45 minute drive from Cancun located in the area called "the Riviera Maya".

First off, we have stayed in several condos in Playa del Carmen, mainly between the beach and 5th Ave. This time we were looking for a quieter area that we could explore beyond 5th yet still be close to the beach and some of our favourite spots and this condo gave us the best of both worlds! We were personally greeted by the owners whom were great to deal with from my first request until leaving. They left us with a great list of restaurants, shopping, beach clubs, banks, doctors etc all with links to Trip Advisor so you could review before going (a great plus if you are new to the area). The condo is as represented in the photos...it was spacious, quiet, and had all the comforts of home. The roof top was an added bonus, it has a shower and powder room and was especially nice at night where you could enjoy the breeze...we did not use the jacuzzi as it was July and very hot and humid. The security guards were great, always greeted us by name and the pool and grounds were always clean (we usually had the pool to ourselves).We walked to the Soriana grocery store a few blocks away and picked up things for breakfasts,quick snacks and refreshments. We usually went to Mamitas Beach Club for the day, which is a short easy walk, hit happy hour on the way back then enjoyed a swim in the pool. We tried several restaurants recommended by the owners and we were not disappointed...our favourite was Util/Papa Charly's...the lasagne was the best we ever had and the portion sizes were large and inexpensive. We also enjoyed Piola (frozen basil martinis are a must try and their great selection of home made pizza). We loved the area and ate at several local spots which is so much cheaper than 5th Ave, and the food/drinks were very good as well as service.We will return as it suited all of our needs and gave us the chance to experience more of the local spots without being too far from the beach.Loved our week long stay, only wish it was longer!!
Stayed here in Feb 2013 with another couple. Location is great! Quick walk to the beach, 5th Avenue and some of the best restaurants (Como Como, El Diez, La Cueva del Chango, Los AguaChiles are some of our favorites). We were warmly greeted by Liliana (project manager) and showed around the beautiful condo. She responded quickly to questions or needs while staying in the unit. Condo was very spacious and comfortable for four. We were pleasantly surprised that the condo was well insolated to shield off all noise from the street - we slept like babies. Kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, cookware, etc. Never felt like we were missing anything. The best part of the condo is the rooftop terrasse equipped with hot tub, lounge and BBQ. Perfect place to watch sun set and relax after a day at the beach. My husband and I travel to Playa once and year and will definetely stay here again.
Our Family Thanksgiving was enriched by the wonderful home provided for us. Every amenity was in perfect condition, every need was addressed, and the home was clean, up to date, spacious, and totally outfitted with everything we could ask for!In addition... the location actually was fantastic, the nice view of the park, and the pool amazing and warm for November - we loved staying here. We will definitely stay here again and feel lucky to have found such a fabulous vacation spot in Playa del Carmen!
Katie, you and your family were so nice to have as guests.. You were very considerate and left the place just spotless! We hope to you back again soon! Thank you for your kind words!
From the moment I made my first inquiry online, to our arrival & and up to the moment we left, she was host extraordinaire. More than accommodating on all requests, beautiful condo and pool with all the amenities to make us feel like we were right at home! The neighborhood and surrounding area in the North End of town with the better restaurants and beaches was the perfect spot for us.
Thank you Sean for you nice review! You were a pleasure to work with too! We hope to have you back as guests in our home again!
We just spent 7 nights in this extraordinary vacation condo. It was a peaceful oasis for us to reconnect as a family. The condo has been well stocked by its gracious owners, with every conceivable item you could possibly need. It truly was as if you were home. We enjoyed opening the balcony doors each morning and letting the fresh crisp air fill the kitchen while making breakfast. The pictures are accurate, but even more beautiful when you see it. The condo was very clean and everything was in perfect working order. We loved the location. Our favorite things were the hot tub and the couches on the rooftop for napping. The owners are delightful and very professional during the rental process. We hope to be back next year for another week.
Thank you Stacy! Your family was a pleasure to have as guests in our home and welcome you back next year!
We had a great experience staying at this apartment, great location and awesome layout. Few minute walk to the beach and beach clubs Mamitas, Canibal and Kool and the 5th avenue where the restaurants and bars are. Thanks to Jamais and Ruben for sharing their great hospitality, they're really nice and trustful, everything was exactly as described in the listing, we're definitely renting again from them.
Thank you so much Jose! Your family took great care of our place and we would love to have you all back soon!
we miss PDC! can’t wait to return. we just LOVED the condo – it was perfect. everything was super clean, nicely decorated and all the amenites were as described. security guard guy out front was friendly and informed. location was great - easy walk to the soriana market for groceries, easy walk to pretty much every where else around town too. i really liked that the condo was off the beach just enough that you felt like you were in a local neighborhood, not drowing in tourists. yet quinta avenida was 2 minutes away on foot if you wanted. we hope to come back again soon and will rent with you for sure. everything was great. thanks for being so professional and prompt. missing the glorious weather in playa right now - - it’s cloudy and 65 here in san francisco! :( boo.
Thanks Jennifer! You an your girlfriends were a pleasure to have as guests and so all so nice to meet!
