Looking for most luxurious condo to rent

Hi all,

Planning on spending my birthday in PDC early next year and want to rent a 1-2 bedroom condo on the beach. Here are my MUST HAVES:

**unobstructed beachfront, beach view

**reliable wi-fi

**luxurious accomodations, flat screen tv, ipod docking

**walking distance to 5th avenue

Additionally, I would like to have a private plunge pool or private hot tub.

Is this too much to ask? Does anyone have any recommendations?

No it's not to much to ask for. I personally have never stayed in a condo in PLaya but we are considering it for our next trip. I have been looking at the VRBO (vacation rental by owner) site for some time now. They have so many oceanfront, luxurious condos just steps away from 5th Ave. There are literally tons of them that will meet all your needs. It's definitely a good starting point & I am sure others will chime in w/ some more suggestions for you. Good luck & happy shopping.

Penthouses at El Taj are stunning. High end finishing and a private rooftop with hot tub and full outdoor kitchen.

Just got back a week ago and was very impressed.

El Taj even has special ventilation for the closets. Some of the penthouse units have outdoor barbeques. They have a nice beach club called Indigo.

Check out Encanto El Faro as well.

Both of these are new since January 2010, are centrally located on 10 and 12 calle and within 2 blocks of 5th avenue.

The Elements condos are fantastic and exactly what you are looking for. You can find them through vrbo.com, homeaway.com, bric rentals and if you want to see video, search Elements Playa del Carmen on U Tube. They have my vote for some of the nicest around!

Many thanks to all who replied...I appreciate your help, insight and recommendations. I think I'm going to stay at El Taj --that is, if I can find a good rate for my stay. Anyone know of an El Taj owner that I can contact?
