Absolutely Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

I have to rave about this home and the experience we had there. We had two families staying in the home with a total of eight children. It was perfect. Each bedroom has a connecting bathroom. The kitchen and eating area are a great size. There are two amazing features of the home. The private pool! It is very private. The pictures from the listing must be a little old because the bushes and trees around the pool have really matured. People can barely see the pool as they are walking by. Our kids spent countless hours in this pool. It is clean, warm and even has a shallow end. The second feature was that the beach is literally 50 steps away. They are not exaggerating! We would wander down to the beach, come back and shower off in the outdoor shower, and then jump directly into the pool! The neighborhood is very high end with 24 hour guards. You feel very safe. There are ruins right across the street from the house and bigger ones a small walk away. At the beginning of the neighborhood there are tons of shops and a taxi stand. The owners of this home were a delight to work with. I could go on and on!

Very comfy stay

Our family of 6 just stayed at Casacaracol for the week and it was extremely clean and comfortable. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out! Owners were attentive to our needs and their housekeeper was wonderful 😊

Beautiful home, wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family loved our stay in Casa Caracol at the end of June. We were a large group - my husband I, our three sons and their girlfriends. As the other reviews mentioned, the home is spacious and well appointed. The daily maid service is wonderful and having Constantina prepare a meal is a treat that should not be missed! They accommodated the vegetarians in our group beautifully. The owners are amazing at providing helpful information and recommendations. Felipe provided our transportation to and from PDC as well as a driver for our day of sightseeing and we can only say good things about their services.

The beach is beautiful and close and we loved being able to walk to shopping and restaurants. We hope to return to PDC and stay in Casa Caracol again. Soon!

Great Stay at CasaCaracol

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed at CasaCaracol at the end of April. The house is really spacious with four bedrooms (3 king beds + 4 singles). Walked down to the beach sith chairs most days. Realy close. Walked to Playa as well - about a 7 minute walk. Nice to not need a car for transportation! Cleaning daily was great to have. Used a shuttle to and from airport. Pool is great although not a huge patio around it. Great place over all.

Fabulous stay!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this beautiful home. It was all that was described.....steps from beach, and easy walk to town. The A/C was super cold and efficient, kitchen was a dream, and we loved having a private pool just outside.

All staff was amazing. We had red carpet treatment from the housekeeping staff, who were meticulous in their upkeep of the house. Their was a young man that made daily trips to ensure the pool was kept clean, and Felipe was prompt in airport and restaurant transportation.

Only issue we had, a language / communication issue with a grocery list to Julian. We ended up with a $100 bottle of vodka, hotdogs instead of sausage, and the chorizo was vegan / soy. Chocolate chip cookies requested yielded a HUGE variety pack (actually 3 of these), so, I would go to the store myself, as this was all costly :(

Owner's Response: Dawn and guests, Thanks for choosing Casa Caracol for your Mexican Holiday! We appreciate your memorable comments, are delighted that all went well, and all enjoyed their vacation. Thanks for the compliments to our staff-we will let them know. Thanks for the feedback on the grocery purchases-occasionally, although not often, something does get lost in translation. We will work on that. You are always welcome back. Nancy Mandel Colorado

My 50th

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of three couples who all enjoy our creature comforts which is without a doubt what we got. The pool is perfect size and depth to float around while enjoying a cocktail or two, the bedrooms are nice and comfy, the kitchen is well stocked and overall the house is very clean. Nancy was incredible in handling all the details. We pre-ordered groceries which is a must so you can relax from the moment you walk in the door. We agree with the other reviews that hiring Adrianna's mom to come over and cook is a really good idea. The lady can cook! Nancy recommended a driver by the name of Felipe and I have to give the guy high marks. The price was quite reasonable and as advertised he was waiting for us right outside the airport doors. We even hired him for a day of excursions again for a very reasonable fee. We did go to H.C. Meats for a lunch run, very very yummy but do take a cab. 5th Ave might be a 15 minute walk if your not in a hurry. The only "complaint" I have is not enough hot water but certainly not a deal breaker. All and all this house was as exactly as advertised. Our security deposit was returned promptly and we are looking forward to returning someday.

Casa Caracol is located 800 meters south of the main square and 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen. Casa Caracol is in the gated community of Playacar Phase One and only 50 steps from a beautiful white sand beach. Playa del Carmen is located about 30 miles south of the Cancun Airport. The town has many wonderful restaurants. The warm Caribbean water is beautiful and the Playa del Carmen white sand beaches are second to none. The beaches are uninterrupted for miles north and south of town. The beaches are child friendly and European sunbathing friendly. 5th Avenue is a pedestrian mall and evening dining and strolls along 5th Avenue makes for great people watching. Many Mayan ruins day tours are available to Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba. The world’s second largest barrier reef is located just off the coast. Snorkeling and Scuba are easily accessible. Many family oriented amusement parks with zip-lines, cenotes and swimming with dolphins are located within minutes of Playa del Carmen. Sailing, wake boarding, kite boarding, wave runners and other water sport activities are available within a 10 min walk (800 meters) of Casa Caracol.
