Small modern studio with all the essentials and only half a mile from the sandy beach and turquoise sea, you don't even need a taxi, 2 bicycles are included, FUN FACT: is cheaper to rent our place & included bicycles than just rent the bicycles in town! Great place to rest after exploring the mayan ruins, swimming in the ocean or just shopping in 5th avenue. AIR CONDITIONER and nice queen size bed, mini fridge, microwave and electric range, and nice hot water in the shower, all new, super clean!

The space

If you are looking for an essential place, with the basics you need to make this your home away from home, real bed, real bed linens; so close to the beach that you can have your morning beach stroll every day, yet away from the touristic downtown and definitely "off the beaten path" but with all services near by, this is the place for you! The kitchen has a mini refrigerator, microwave and electric range, a pot and a pan, basic kitchen utensils, glasses, cups, dishes... The studio has A/C, ceiling fan, hangers, desk/table with two chairs... Bathroom has hot/cold water and a set of shampoo, conditioner, soap, toilet paper to get you started... And wifi!

Guest access

There is a large upper floor terrace with chairs and a table, great for relaxing on late afternoons or evenings, there is also a front yard you can put some chairs in the shade during the day, nothing fancy though!

Interaction with guests

We are usually available over Messenger to answer any questions or recommendations.

Other things to note

Fresh bed sheets and towels are changed after every four nights if requested by guests; one shampoo, one conditioner and one soap are included (yes, so is toilet paper!). Of course, the two included bicycles at no extra cost!

So, why pay $20 usd to rent 2 bicycles per day PLUS your lodging, when you can get it all for almost the same price of just renting the bicycles?

Carlos and Gaby have been the most amazing host. They supplied everything we needed, and if something was missing they would bring it immediately! They even helped me plan my boyfriend's birthday! The studio was really clean and had a good working AC which you really need. We loved having the bikes, because we cycled everywhere, to the beach, bars and supermarkets. Playa 88 is close by and really nice to hang out. If you stay here you will be staying in a nice neighbourhood between the locals which was a good experience. Thanks again for the great time we had, we will definitely come back sometime.

AMAZING hosts.... you seriously can't ask for more kind, generous, and caring people! My only "issue" (which really is a non issue bc everything was exactly as described) is that it was too far from the ADO/collectivo bus station. We ended up taking a taxi almost everyday to the ADO station to do all of our activities which was anywhere from 5-10$ each way. As far as the room goes it is exactly as pictured! Nice, and private, with a relaxing balcony-like area! The only thing to be weary of is the shower. The majority of the bathroom floor gets wet when showering. Probably could be fixed with a longer shower curtain, and truly wasn't an issue for us (which is why we never mentioned it). All-in-all a great place if you want to stay off the beaten touristy path! And you definitely cannot ask for better hosts!!!

The apartment is modern and chic. Everything was super clean and Consuela is coming around to bring some stuff and take out the garbage. The apartment is in walking distance to the public beach playa 88. There is a kiosk around the corner. The bus to the centre is on Av. 80 close by. Carlos is very nice and helpful. We had a really nice stay. Absolutely recommendable.

Gaby and I are very laid back couple, married since 2007, no kids (but 2 dogs and 2 cats); we are both kitesurfers and love to travel, but when we are not in the water or on the road, we like to just relax at home. We work together in the hotel industry and have been living in 'P…
