Description from owner

**Can rent as a 2 BR/ 2.5 BA, please inquire**

This huge, 3 BR/ 3.5 BA ground floor unit is just 5 steps off the patio to the pool, and just about 10 more to one of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico! Ideally located in a small, private building with only eight units, it provides the ultimate combination of location, size, privacy, view, and value. It's a perfect place for a family vacation, or plenty of room to bring two! Relax on the patio and watch your family swim and snorkel over the reef just steps out front, or it's a short walk to the marina for fishing, shopping, dining, golf, or to enjoy the dolphin experience. There is no need for a car! Ours is a truly unique property! You flat out can't beat this location on the beach and in the community. We put the time, money, and effort into finding and making our home appealing to those looking for one of the nicest places to enjoy their vacation, not just one of the cheap, common units you mostly see for rent. Why not treat yourself and your family? Complete remodeling was finished throughout in April, 2013, so come enjoy our hacienda style condo, with a beautiful full-sized kitchen complete with granite counter tops, stained hardwood cabinets, and stainless built in appliances. Dishwasher, cook top, microwave, oven, garbage disposal, water filter for purified water and ice, and much more! It's very well equipped, with all the comforts of home, but also with a fantastic ocean views, even from the kitchen! Move to the dining room and enjoy our custom made wood dining table with comfortable seating for eight, along with beautiful furnishings complimenting the warm "hacienda" style. We just replaced the glass patio doors and windows throughout to improve the fantastic views, as well as improve the comfort level, so step out on the patio and the Riviera Maya becomes your living room! Relax on the push leather couches, kick your feet up on the granite topped tables, and check out the latest Hi Def action from home on the DISH satellite system with DVR on LED smart TV with internet connection. You can even use our Netflix account! Stay in touch with family and friends by calling back and forth to the US, Canada, and Mexico land lines for free on the Vonage phone, or surf the internet with the WiFi. Fresh paint, new furniture, drapes, and more! We've added lots of original local art throughout the condo.

Don't be fooled by some that advertise "oceanfront", only to find that their massive COMPLEX of 200 condos is oceanfront, but their unit happens to be a several hundred yard walk from the beach! As previously written, we are in a small private complex made up of one 4 story building with only eight units, right on the beach! Check out our pictures. These are taken from 3 steps off the patio. It's literally 5 steps to the pool and 15 to the beach!

Bring plenty of guests! The condo sleeps 8 very comfortably, but be ready to fight over the master bedroom. Pull the blackout drapes and sleep late on the massive hardwood king bed topped with luxurious mattress and 800 count sheets, then wake up to the gorgeous ocean views! There's a large flat screen TV with satellite, or watch a movie on the DVD/ Blu-ray player. We have ample storage with a large closet, multiple drawers and cabinets, as well as a safe to store valuables during your stay. Separate thermostats and ceiling fans in each bedroom provide the ultimate in comfort. Double sinks and marble shower with glass door complete the master.

The guest rooms are massive, comfortably sleeping four to a room on plush queen mattresses, with large closets in each room and plenty of storage space. Enjoy the same quality bedding throughout. Each also has large flat screen TV, DVD/ Blu-ray players, and marble tiled showers and bathrooms with separate sink/ ready areas for maximum convenience. There is also a very large patio shared between the two guest rooms, complete with a small, tropical garden. There's simply just too much to list, but I wouldn't want to forget the convenient laundry room with washer and dryer, great patio seating, and outdoor charcoal BBQ grill.

Puerto Aventuras is the perfect destination for your next trip to the Rivera Maya. Enjoy the fantastic year-round sunny climate, stunning turquoise Caribbean water, and white sandy beaches. You can't beat the location in the community and proximity to the beach of our unit, much less find a condo so nicely appointed. I look forward to speaking to you about your stay!

About the area

Our home is ideally located in Puerto Aventuras, a small, gated, private community developed around the only marina south of Cancun. It is easily accessed by from the airport by car or the many transportation companies available for hire. Once there, there is really no need for a car. About a 45 minute drive south the Cancun airport, it is made up of mainly private homes and condo units, with very few large hotels, giving it a true "neighborhood" feel. It is a fantastic place for a relaxing family vacation, romantic getaway, or trip with the guys/ girls! Centered in the community is the marina area (just about a five minute walk from the condo) where there are plenty of restaurants, shopping, activities, and practically everything you will need during your stay. They even raise dolphins, seals, and manatees in the marina, so enjoy the daily shows, or charter a boat for great fishing or snorkeling tours. A community golf course is within walking distance of the condo, as well as a tennis club and fitness center. Puerto Aventuras is also perfectly located in the Riviera Maya, with close access to the archeological sites and parks, attractions such as the world famous snorkel site, Xel Ha, Xcaret, Xplor, cenotes, etc. There are also plenty of other activities close by including, diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, ATVs, kite surfing, and much more! Our unit is on the ground floor in a four story building which makes up the entire complex of Real del Mar codominiums. There are only two units per floor and only eight total units in the complex, which makes for a very private stay!

Getting around

A car is not a requirement during your stay. You can easily find transportation from the airport to our place online, for approximately $125 round trip. Once at our place, it is a relatively short two block walk to the marina area where you will find several restaurants and small grocery stores. Taxis are usually readily available to take trips or to get groceries at the large store right outside the community. Of course, if you plan to do lots of excursions to places outside the community a rental car might be best and most convenient.

Getting here

There are multiple private transportation companies online to book your transportation prior to your arrival. You may also rent cars online (best to book ahead, as they can be in limited supply at busy times of the year). You don't need a Mexican driver's license to rent a car in Mexico.

Interaction with guest

You will be given a access code for the key to the front door for your arrival. Prior to your arrival our property manager, Anivi, will contact you and arrange a time when she can meet you at the condo to go over some important information, as well as answer any questions you might have. This will hopefully occur the afternoon of or the morning after your arrival (maybe Monday am. for Saturday arrivals). Her office is just a short walk from the condo, and you are provided email and phone contacts for her in case there are any issues during your stay.

About the owner

Buenos dia, from our home in Dallas (no, South Fork isn't very impressive), where we spend our time in between going down to paradise, our home in Puerto Aventuras. My wife, Pamela, and I have been vacationing down in the Riviera Maya since our honeymoon in Playa del Carmen twenty years ago! ...
