Each of the thirty-plus Elements homes by Bric Vacation Rentals features luxury finishes and top-notch workmanship. However, the owners of Penthouse 24 recently remodeled their vacation home and the result is nothing short of extraordinary. Accent brick walls, a custom kitchen with an extended granite counter and superior quality furnishings are just some of the exquisite details that stand out within this handsome penthouse.

Even more impressive than the elegant upgrades is the exceptional, unobstructed view from the open living space and two ample terraces. Imagine sipping on your favourite Caribbean-inspired cocktail and watching the fishing boats in the harbour from your private Jacuzzi.

Take the group to the beach for a sunrise paddle board session to begin a magical day in Playa del Carmen. Continue the fun at The Elements exclusive beach club with cold beers and margaritas under the shade of a thatched-roof palapa. Walk along the magnificent shoreline and make your own footprints in the alabaster sand. Or go out and explore the beautiful cenote swimming holes of the region. Besides the pristine natural pools are a bounty of nature and adventure parks just outside the city limits. Enjoy the best of the Riviera Maya, while staying in one of the best vacation homes Playa del Carmen has to offer.
