Anniversary Vacation Was Perfect!

  • 5 out of 5
Our group of 7 decided to go to Mexico only a few months before we actually did. That doesn't leave alot of room for error. We had several anniversaries to celebrate and some wounds to heal. Luckily we found Casa Caracol. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of rentals and hotels available because it was September. BUT, finding Casa Caracol was a dream come true. It all started with a few emails to the owners. They were so easy to work with and so easy to communicate with.
When we finally made it to sunny MX after the usual "no sleep" in the last 24 hours, we were absolutely thrilled to see our home for the week. Nancy had arranged for the house manager (who was great) to have a few groceries waiting for us. That is a nice way to start a vacation.
The house is beautiful and HUGE! There is nothing you will need after you walk in the beautiful front door. Unpack your things, grab a beverage and sit by the pool and talk about how lucky you are to get such a great house for a week! Our maid was so sweet and efficient. We are from Wisconsin. I hope she wasn't too freaked out about the amount of beer cans that needed to be recycled every day.....
Oh yes, the beach! The location of Casa Caracol is perfect like everything else about Casa Caracol. Grab a towel, chair, and an umbrella and walk down to the beach. Pretty tough.
And now the best part.....half of our group left after one week and the rest of us were gonna "gypsy" it the 2nd week. No need! Casa Caracol was available and the owners were kind enough to let us stay at a price we could afford. Yes, we became pretty spoiled by the end of the second week.
To sum up, we have stayed in several villas in Phase 1. When it comes to maid service, pool service, ease of communication with the owners, location to the beach, location to town and price compared to similar villas, Casa Caracol is your only choice. Our hats are off to Ed, Ronnie, Nancy and Bob. Thank you for all your kindness, it is very much appreciated and will not be forgotten.

Best Vacation in Mexico You Could Ever Take

  • 5 out of 5
Perfect location, 3 houses from the beach, about 10 minute walk to 5th Avenue, tons of shops and restaurants. Owners easy to work with and lots of items provided, there were umbrella's, chairs, and even an ice chest for the beach. If you stay here, and you should, you must get the housekeepers family to cook for you a few times. When I think of this week vacation I think of Constantine and her daughter making our meals and squeezing limes and making margaritas. The food was incredible and authentic, the owners can hook you up with her for cooking. The house was clean, plenty of fresh water provided.
There were 10 in our party and everyone had a bed. If I could give this a 10 star rating I would. Thanks again for your hospitality, your time, and all the ideas you gave us for meals and transportation.

Excellent time near the beach in quiet residential

  • 4 out of 5
We had an exceptional time at the property with my family that includes 2 small children. The house was clean and inviting with more than enough room for everyone with 3 king sized bedrooms and one with 3 single beds. The pool is small and refreshing with a shallow area that was good for our small children. The beach just down the street was clean but a bit rocky as you go into the water but walking just one block down towards Playa del Carmen there were no rocks at all and good for swimming for all. The house has standard definition Sky satellite television with a flat screen in the living room only; all bedrooms have independent satellite boxes but with older tube type televisions. Internet is good velocity in the house but the range does not extend well into the master bedroom upstairs. We felt very comfortable there and were well attended to by the local management and cleaning staff. It was good for us being in the quite residential area just a few blocks away from the entrance to the 5th ave.

Only Regret...We didn't stay longer.

Only Regret...We didn't stay longer.

Casa Caracol was the perfect place for our multi-generational family's vacation in Playa Del Carmen. While we originally debated staying at an all-inclusive resort, we thought a vacation rental might be best given that we were traveling with a 2 and a half year old and a 7 month old. Casa Caracol proved to be the ideal place to meet everybody's vacation needs and desires. Casa Caracol is located in a beautiful and shady area in Playa Del Carmen. The rooms in the home were spacious and easily accommodated families of 3 in two of them. The other 2 rooms were the perfect place for a couple and the single traveler in our group. The rooms were quiet and sound-proof making it easy to get the kids to bed even with the rest of the family out in the living area, not far away. Casa Caracol was clean and we were very appreciative of the hard work that the housekeeping team put forth during the week to ensure we had clean towels and living space. The living space was comfortable and opens onto a comfortable patio near the swimming pool. Having a pool at the home was fantastic---it made getting in and out of the water to cool off easy and low-maintenance for kids and adults alike. For those that preferred to cool off in the ocean, Casa Caracol is located only a few steps away from the beautiful soft sand beach around the corner. During our stay, the beach was not crowded but peaceful and relaxing. Casa Caracol was only a short walk into town for shops and restaurants. We found we didn't need to eat out, however---Casa Caracol has a spacious kitchen and dining room and a couple of trips to the grocery store in town to stock up provided our food for breakfast and lunch. Nancy again was a wonderful concierge when it came to dinner planning and recommended her housekeeper's mother---Constantina---to cook authentic Mexican meals for us at Casa Caracol. This proved to be one of our favorite parts of vacation. The meals were cost effective, delicious and authentic. On two nights, we made other dinner plans and regretted having strayed from Constantina! Apart from helping us make dinner plans, Nancy was available prior to our vacation to make other suggestions to us and it was clear she hoped our vacation would be as fun as we also hoped it would be.

Casa Caracol - Luxury for the family in Playacar

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful family vacation at Casa Caracol in March. Our group of eight (two families) had plenty of space with the large bedrooms and adjoining bathrooms. We enjoyed poolside drinks and casual dinners at the house. The beach is only 30 seconds from the house and Playa del Carmen is a short walk as well. Casa Caracol has something for everyone. The established neighborhood of Playacar is fantastic. Casa Caracol is a really find!

Great time at Casa Caracol

  • 5 out of 5
Our family had a wonderful time at Casa Caracol and look forward to returning. The location was great -- steps from the beach and an easy walk to downtown. The owners also did an excellent job helping us to plan for the trip and suggesting excursions. House had everything we needed, too, from beach chairs and umbrellas to a fully stocked kitchen. Owners also arranged for to have grocery essentials stocked when we arrived, which made it easy to cook dinner for our young children on arrival.
