What is the hardest thing to find in downtown Playa del Carmen?
There is a large inventory of condos for sale in the Riviera Maya but the one item we have clients ask for time and time again are houses for sale in Playa del Carmen. There are very few downtown neighborhoods with houses for sale and even fewer that are within 5 minutes of 5th Avenue.
Why are houses are so in demand?
- Privacy: Enjoy your own space, with no shared common areas, your private backyard.
- Noise: No need to worry about neighbors living above or below you, hoping all are silent and respectful.
- No HOA fees: Low-cost maintenance!
- Location: To have all of this in the heart of Playa del Carmen is rare.
Imagine having all this in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by trees, a huge green area as a back yard, a park steps from your house, and waking up with birds while being 2 minutes from 5th and 6 minutes from the beach.
Moskito Real Estate has ONE!
This house is located in Quintas del Carmen, a neighborhood nestled in the heart of downtown. On a closed street, between 10th and 20th Avenue, Quintas del Carmen was developed when Playa del Carmen was just a small fishing village. Surrounded by mature trees and tropical vegetation, this neighborhood is one of the most sought after locations for property in Playa del Carmen, it’s rare when properties come up for sale and when they do, they are quickly snatched up by smart investors who know the value of having a house so close to all the action.
Casa Quintas has 2 bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms, built over two levels. Entering the home, you have the half bath and the living space. The previous owner remodeled the kitchen to increase the size and also add a storage/laundry room. My favorite part of this house is the private garden with paved patio, an outdoor storage space, and then the fenced in garden. For pet owners, this is perfect, you can open your sliding glass doors and let the dog (or cat) outside to enjoy the sunshine. Behind this private garden, there are common areas of Quintas del Carmen. Add a door to open up the garden space and enjoy the lushness of the jungle.
On the second floor of the house, there are two bedrooms and a full bathroom. Each bedroom has built-in closets, the guest bedroom overlooks the garden, the master has a large private terrace.
This house is ideal for those looking for their vacation home or a full-time residence in Playa del Carmen and prefers not to purchase a car, as this is an easily walkable area. Another big plus is, as it’s a single family home, there are no monthly association fees. You’d have your yearly property taxes, property management fees if you choose to hire a management company to take care of the property if you plan to not be there 100% of the time, and the utilities. If you are looking for an investment property, this is a great option for a long term rental property, more and more people are able to work from anywhere and due to the low cost of living, they are choosing Playa del Carmen as their new home. For a long term rental, 6-12 month lease, the tenants are responsible for paying all utilities, cutting your expenses as an owner down.
