Amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular! Gorgeous home! So close to the beach! The staff is amazing. We felt at home immediately. The neighborhood is peaceful, safe and beautiful. Nancy and Ed are easy to work with from beginning to end. Constantina is an amazing cook and made our experience even more enriching. We look forward to returning in the not too distant future!

Great well equipped home!

  • 5 of 5

We just concluded a 7-night stay in Casa Caracol and had a terrific time! The beds are comfortable and the on-site property manager, Alberto is very helpful. Be sure to use Filipe as your driver. Loved the access to the beach and the private pool. We would definitely come and stay again.

Thank You!

Great House in very nice area.

  • 5 of 5

CasaCaracol is a wonderful house with plenty of room for all. Just returned in July from a trip with 3 generations! The owners, house manager, and house keeper are all very helpful. I especially recommend using Felipe, the driver, for transportation to and from the airport and for day trips.

This property is everything it claims to be and more!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed all the comforts of Casa Caracol and the time we spent with our family in this relaxed setting.

The housekeeping, maintenance and your personnel were outstanding. Alberto, the house manager was extremely helpful and responsive to any and all of our needs.

The home owner state side was very supportive in arranging a in home chef as well as recommending transportation, fishing expeditions and the best places to dine in Playa Del Carmen.

Constantina, the chef is absolutely amazing and her authentic Mexican meals were outstanding, certainly a highlight for each of us on our stay. The ability to see her preparation and work in process was a unique experience that we all enjoyed. Her guacamole (and the presentation) carrot soup or lime torte were favorites of our clan.

Our Thanks for being everything you represented!

The perfect size property

  • 5 of 5

This is our second consecutive year staying at Casa Caracol and it was like coming home. My family includes 3 grandchildren ages 8, 7 & 3 so the one bedroom was perfect for them...each having their own twin bed and even an extra. Of course they love the pool and we love being steps from the shore and having all the beach gear ready and waiting. Having a full functioning kitchen is my need being that I love to cook usually making breakfast, lunch for the beach and hors d'oeurves for cocktail hour. Having a grill is also a big plus for the men. This year we rented a small car for our marketing expeditions and it was nice having a parking pad on the property. The housekeeper, Adriana, and the house manager, Alberto, are both wonderful and see to our needs professionally and quickly. It is so nice being close to 5th Ave. and all the restaurants. Each one is better then the next and I must admit I need that walk home at night! There is nothing the owners Nancy and Ed haven't covered for making this rental a wonderful experience. My husband and I look forward to next year's vacation with our family and I know they all do, as well. Thank you Nancy and Ed for helping us make wonderful family memories!

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us stayed at Casa Caracol for 5 days in early March and cannot wait to go back! The house is very well located near the beach and town. The house itself is spacious and clean, with a great pool and outdoor area (lounge and beach chairs included). We really appreciated the cleaning staff and, Alberto - the house manager - was a great resource for restaurant suggestions and pre-arrival kitchen stocking. Ed and Nancy made the booking and arrival process easy so we could hit the ground running. Thanks for a great vacation!
