Guest Book:: Message dated 8/9/2006 11:53 AM Central Daylight Time: Just wanted to let you know what a fabulous time we had at your wonderful, wonderful Villa – Casa Passalacqua -- we spent a wk there and it wasn’t enough for me – We had a group of nine and all accommodations were excellent – very private. The pool area is exactly as described – which was perfect for us and very clean, maintained daily. The maid service was also excellent – very prompt and friendly. There is nothing we can say except we had a most wonderful family vacation – exactly what we were looking for – just to sit, relax and enjoy each others company, Location is good very easy access and seemed to be safe area – walking distance to beach and main avenue. Again, it was fabulous and we will definitely return to Casa Passalacqua – hopefully in the very near future. Thank you --- Belinda Santos

Amazing Stay in the Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay! This was a reunion for a group of nine friends and Casa Passalacqua was the ideal set up for us. The house was very comfortable and the pool was perfect for morning and evening dips. The house is a block from the beach, which is much less crowded than the beaches further north. The house is also a quick walk into town - truly the perfect location. Eleanora was incredibly helpful when planning our stay and the property manager Carlos was available for any issues or questions that came up while we were there. We can't wait to return!

Beautiful Home and Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided that on our first trip to Mexico, we would bring our 4 kids (ages 10-14). We were nervous - 4 restless kids while traveling to an unfamiliar place where we don't speak much of the language. Once we arrived at the house, all of our fears were put to rest. We were all completely overwhelmed with the beauty and elegance of the home while the kids ran floor to floor claiming their bedrooms.

The beach is about 100 yards from the house and is clean, electric blue, and beautiful. The area is quiet, safe, private, and friendly. The bedrooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, and the air conditioning is cool. We bbq'd on the rooftop balcony, cooked great meals in the kitchen, even had the cook prepare us a wonderful meal one night.

The lady who cleans the house (I didn't get her name) was absolutely amazing - she was always on top of things - towels, sheets, making sure everything was perfect. She was really sweet and I always enjoyed her smile.

Eleanora is very thorough and accommodating. Carlos was always able to answer questions and help out. I would love nothing more that to come back again! (Even the moody tweens said it was the best vacation EVER!)

Nice place. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful stay with entire family. Manager was very helpful and responsive to problems....one air conditioner didn't work, fridge didn't work, bathroom lights burned out....all were fixed shortly after calls (but would have been nice if these things had been checked before our arrival). All in all, house was in good condition and clean. One suggestion would be to put together a welcome book with notes on house and area; (i.e.: wifi password, tv channel guide, number to call for pizza delivery, etc.). Enjoyed our stay. Would recommend to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I am very happy you enjoyed the time with your family in my beautiful villa. It is very important to me that guest have a good time, and do not encounter any problems. Our property manager, checks the house before the guest arrives to ensure that all is working well.This time, either some thing broke or he overloocked it, I am sorry for the inconvinience, according to Carlos, all was working OK. We have a welcome book,(great suggestion), it has been misplaced, but I can ensure you it will be there, you will see it on your next visit, I hope you will return. Thank you. ELeonora

Perfect home for larger parties!

  • 5 of 5

Eleonora's home ended being perfect for our party of 10, while celebrating my 40th birthday in lovely Playa del Carmen! Four of us were delayed about 10 hours getting into Cancun, and Eleonora arranged transportation to pick up my friends at the Cancun Airport, since we were all supposed to have ridden together. (I need to say that I called VERY early in the morning, and she even helped us while she was under the weather).

The home was less than two blocks from the beach, about a 5-8 min walk to 5th Street, 10 mins to the ADO bus station. It IS in a gated community, and there was a little confusion with trying to get the taxi drivers to trust us that the home was in Playacar Phase I and not II, but all worked out!

A couple of us rented bikes through Ian at Playa Rida (http://www.playarida.com), which were delivered right to the home by Ian, the owner. Highly recommend to get off the beaten path in Playa.

We left some restaurant recs in the visitor ledger, but here are a few we enjoyed:

La Coronela (VERY small, but well worth eating here. So nice and wonderful food. Two ladies in the kitchen cranked out my bday dinner with 12 of us there).

Bio Natural - great place for salads, vegan and veggie food. Also a small market.

La Brocherie - I know, who goes to Mexico to eat French food? Trust me, it was amazing, and it's obviously a hit with the locals. Best roasted chicken.

Anyway, the house exceeded our expectations, the wifi worked great, and everyone had their own space. What more can one ask for. Oh, and that rooftop deck! Gah!

Thanks, Eleonora and Carlos! I hope to get back one day soon.

Bucket list dream come true!!!! Gorgeous home, perfect location. What more could anyone hope for??!!

  • 5 of 5

Our blended family with 5 kids and their significant others have never had the chance to vacation together. This was truly the trip of a lifetime for our family with kids ranging in age from 17-30. Easily accommodated all of us! Everyone had their own space yet also perfect space to all come together. Clean, gorgeous, incredibly maintained. Eleonora and Carlos were extremely helpful and responsive. If you've never booked a place like this on line, there is a risk because you truly never know until you see it - this home was more than we could have ever dreamt of!!! We would go back in a heartbeat and hated to leave. Went to an all-inclusive resort the following week and all of us agreed we had a far better time in this house. The beach is gorgeous and so close to town - yet far enough away to have privacy. Perfect location as we walked to town and had late night fun at the bars yet felt perfectly safe walking home on the beach at night which was also very beautiful. Spent tons of time on the beach boogie boarding and just relaxing and swimming. Perfect beach for all of us and no need to go elsewhere, though we did take the water taxi to Cozumel one day and visited Xcaret another day. Great, close excursions and Carlos helped us figure everything out. Had a great dinner the first night on the top deck grilling out and an incredible authentic dinner cooked for us later in the week with so many leftovers we didn't need to cook again - delicious!! Extremely comfortable beds and loved that each room had individual temperature controls. Loved having our room more isolated so our adult kids could have space without feeling like we were on top of them...and vice versa! The ride from the airport with the stop at Walmart was very helpful however it was also a bit overwhelming as you can only spend $250 USD there and our bill was $272 - thankfully the kind lady behind is exchanged USD for pesos. We loved every minute in this gorgeous place and the accommodations were far greater than we imagined. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and hope we can come back someday.Thank you so much, Eleonora and Carlos!!!

Beautiful property with easy beach access

  • 5 of 5

The property is just as described and it was perfect for the 9 of us that stayed here. The private villa area was quite and we felt very safe. The property and the refrigerator took a while to cool down but probably since it had been vacant for a while. The 4 full bathrooms and 1 half bathroom was great feature. No fighting over the bathrooms!

Carlos the property manager was very courteous. We had an issue with the internet and Dish TV which he immediately addressed. He arranged transportation to/from the airport and also arranged a very delicious cooked meal for us at the house on short notice.

The beach is a short 2 block walk and it is not as busy as the portion near the center of town which allows you to relax. If you want to be in the action, the beach bars are a short 10 to 15 minute walk along the beach.

The 5th Ave is about a 5 to 10 min walk as is the ferry to Cozumel. Lots of shopping and food!

Would we return to this property? Absolutely.

Car: not necessary

Villa Passalacqua is a short walk to the Ferry to Cozumel & to town. The famous pedestrian 5th Avenue is 5 minutes away, with its international fine dining, boutique shopping, nightlife, bars with live music (Mariachis will serenade you in Playa Del Carmen, Mayan Riviera). The beach is less than a block away - virtually at your doorstep! The best of Playa del Carmen is at your fingertips! Also nearby is an 18-hole championship golf course, Mayan Ruins, snorkeling/scuba diving locations, sailing, jet skiing, para sailing, tennis courts and to the Xaman Ha Aviary.

It offers plenty of space and privacy for small or large groups, and is ideal for families with children or adults who seek a truly relaxing vacation.
