I have owned and rented out homes in Mexico for the last 17 years. I have a passion for the country and the people and one day plan on spending a large part of my retired time there. I have never had a guest show up at Casa Blanca that was not blown away at just how nice it is and how friendly the staff is. We hope you will stay with us.

Curt Henderson purchased this house in 2003

Playa is so multi cultural. It is the least Mexican town in Mexico. I only say that because Spanish is just one of many languages spoken here. The cuisine is incredible diverse also. The pedestrian mall really slows things down and keeps downtown more like a village.

Privacy and luxury come to mind first. It is a gated guarded neighborhood so you do not have the normal beach traffic. People cannot get into our neighborhood unless they belong there. The staff will make you feel like you are rich and famous. They do your shopping for you and laundry etc.

GIRLS WEEK AT CASA BLANCA

  • 5 out of 5
What a great place for a girls getaway! The house was great and was truly 50 steps from the beach. We were able to walk downtown to shop, eat, and drink. It was especially nice to have a maid and someone to get our groceries--we loved the fact that we didn't have to think about all those things like we do at home. It was a perfect getaway for us and I know we would love to do it again next year!!!

FAMILY!

  • 5 out of 5
As a mother of 2 and grandmother of 3 ... I highly recommend Casablanca! The house is well equipped and I felt my children were safe. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION! The area is secure and secluded yet you have easy access to block and blocks of shops, restaurants and all types of excursions. The staff is incredibly friendly and responsive. Hire the cook!!!! You won't be disappointed. We will definitely be back. One very important thing ... Mr. Henderson was a pleasure to work with. He was honest and very responsive.

Casa Blanca was wonderful! As they say in the real estate industry, Location, Location, Location. The property is perfectly situated near the beach, and walking distance to shopping, restaurants and entertainment. Having a pool is great when you have kids – in the mornings, the kids immediately went swimming, then after breakfast – we hit the beach. Also, all the beach equipment you need is provided at the house, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, beach towels and most important – sand castle equipment. Also, the support at the house was fabulous! Julian, the caretaker will take care of all your needs – I would send him and email for more ice then magically more ice would appear in the freezer. The pool needed attention, send an email to Julian that evening, magically the pool is clean that next morning. Also, the housekeeper does an amazing job. Curt the owner is a pleasure to deal with – very responsive. We are looking forward to our next visit to Casa Blanca.

GREAT STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
Seven of us, ages 6-70, stayed here for seven great days beginning March 29. Close to everything; beach, 5th Ave, taxis and town. REALLY just 50 steps to the beach. Staff did a great job. Used the recommended caterer for arrival dinner and breakfast the first morning - they did a superb job. The owner Curt was very easy to work with and very responsive to emails and questions. No complaints, everything as described and presented.
We were sad to leave. Would definitely recommend!

A GREAT FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 out of 5
Our family of 7 adults and 2 young children just got back from a fabulous 10-day vacation in Playa del Carmen. Our stay at Casa Blanca was everything we had hoped for. As described on the website, the tastefully-decorated house has 4 very spacious bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. The upstairs master bedroom was roomy enough for our daughter, son-in-law and their two daughters (the only missing thing, perhaps, would be a movable divider between the parents' sleeping area and the girls' quarters). The kitchen was well equipped and the living/dining area was comfortable (although relatively small compared to the bedrooms). One of the best things about Casa Blanca was the hot tub attached to the lovely swimming pool. We spent much time in the water and at the area around the pool with its comfortable lounging chairs and a new large dining table set for outdoors meals. The other big plus of Casa Blanca is the close proximity (literally 50 steps) to the beautiful swimming beach with its shallow, warm water and fine white sand. The proximity to the main drag of town (5th Ave.) with its many restaurants is very convenient for dinners. Having young children, we opted to have some dinners cooked for us at home. Julian, the helpful house keeper, arranged for a cook (his mother-in-law) who cooked delicious meals for us. Julian took care of everything we needed. He stocked up the house ahead of our arrival with groceries we requested and did several more grocery trips for us throughout the week. He responded immediately to every request (such as replacing some broken beach chairs with new ones). The daily cleaning service was very nice to have.
Curt, the owner, was easy to deal with and very responsive. All in all - we would recommended Casa Blanca to anyone who wishes to have a wonderful family/group vacation in the fun and activity-filled ara of Playa del Carmen.

EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE

  • 5 out of 5
We spent Thanksgiving with the whole family in Playa in this beautiful home....just 50 feet from a beautiful beach and only a couple blocks away from all the shopping, eating and entertainment. It is a VERY safe place to take your family, you are in a gated community and 24 security. Working with the owner and his staff in Mexico was a delight. Already booking for 2014!
