About Curt Henderson

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

Why Curt Henderson chose Playa del Carmen

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have added this guest book on 1-29-06 in the hopes of sharing in the good memories of our guests and to gain feed back on thier experiences in order to continue to assure that everyones visit is a wonderfull one.

Girls Week at Casa Blanca

  • 5 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!!!

The Best Vacation Experience! Will Have to Come Back.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this beautiful house with a group of friends all traveling for a friend's wedding. This was such a great experience, I will never stay at an all-inclusive again!

The house is roomy and clean with a wonderful outdoor space on the main level and the third level/rooftop. There is a nice pool and a hot tub. But the best part - the house is just steps away from the beach. Beautiful white sand and turquoise water; no vendors or loud hotel activities! It is a serene and secluded spot. There was plenty of security in this residential area, so we felt safe.

Town center with restaurants, shops, and night life is just a 5 minute walk. There were many local food places with great tacos!

Best place to stay in Playa!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Blanca is by far the best place to stay in Playa. The house is in the perfect location; just steps from the beach and a short walk to all the shops and restaurants on 5th avenue. Casa Blanca provides you with all of the comforts of home and more (full kitchen, WiFi, clean bottled water, laundry room, AC, beach towels and chairs, etc.) while giving you a much more private and peaceful experience than the big name resorts. Casa Blanca was so comfortable and inviting that my friends staying in the nearby Playacar Palace (expensive all inclusive resort) would walk down to spend time with us at the house instead. I can't emphasize enough how amazing staying at this beach property was. From the moment I walked in to the kitchen stocked with fresh fruit, tequila and beer to the time I had to drag myself from the comfort of the private pool and hot tub to head home; I needed and wanted nothing more from my stay. I will be recommending Casa Blanca to anyone looking to visit Playa in the future and can't wait until I have the opportunity to stay there again.

Great Family Get Away!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Casa Blanca for one week in April. Since all of our prior beach vacations had been all-inclusive resorts my wife and I were a bit apprehensive about renting a house in Mexico unseen. We were also concerned about the inconveniences of groceries, privacy for family members, cooking, transporting from/to the airport, getting to town, etc. Wow, was that a waste of time!

The owner was extremely helpful as he addressed all of our questions and concerns via email. We found the house, patio and pool areas very spacious allowing plenty of privacy for each family. Bedrooms are all spacious. Our four-year old grandson lived in the pool, it was perfect for him. My son took over the kitchen and grill. My daughter directed all walking trips to town for dinners and even Walmart. Taxi's were easy but only needed one once. Everything is within close walking distance. Internet access was strong and uninterrupted.

The beach is great and very easy to walk on with great ocean views and breezes.

I can't say enough about the house staff. Upon arrival we had groceries and beverages. They were very responsive and worked hard to accommodate all of us. The housekeeper was outstanding. Imagine washing beach towels for your entire family every day.

We will return to Casa Blanca.

Perfect Playa Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Casa Blanca for one week. There were 2 couples 55+, 2 couples age 30s, a 4 and a 2 year old. The house had 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms. The upstairs was perfect for my husband and I and our 2 small children because of the daybed and trundle. Well stocked kitchen with appliances including grill. The pool and hottub were outstanding. Perfect size, warm water, shallow area for the children and always open. Location was perfect. The beach was less than 1 block away and more secluded in playacar than the downtown area. Downtown/5th avenue was a 10 min walk by road or beach. The property was clean and the staff were friendly and professional. The owner was great to work with as well with quick responses and friendly emails. I would strongly recommend this property and if we return to Playa we will rent it again.

Perfect girls trip!

  • 5 of 5

Used the house for a girl's trip...perfect set up, perfect location, perfect vacation. The house manager, Julian, had us stocked with food and beverages upon our arrival...you can laze by the pool or walk down the block to the stunning beach...you can use the fully equipped kitchen at your convenience or take a quick stroll to the entertainment area and find endless places to eat and drink. We enjoyed Sr. Dan's as our go to place! Great little bar! Overall, couldn't beat the beautiful home, perfect location, stunning beach and views and vacation of the year!
