Expectations Exceeded

  • 5 of 5

6 of us just stayed a week at this house and we had a great time. It is everything as advertised, not far to Beach or 5th AVE, just a beautiful secure location. Sergio is invaluable in getting transportation setup for you and the shuttle to and from the airport with Jorge or Romero is well worth the cash. I suggest you get Laura, Sergio's Mother to cook for you upon arrival. You will have leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day for sure. We also had a Chef come in from one of the local restaurants and it went off without a hitch. What can i say about Pauline other than she is the best at making you feel like all your bases are covered upon arrival. Great work Pauline! Pauline was also nice enough to allow us to have the Vatos King Blues play at the house for a private party on one night and Franco Anchelili on another night. Pauline had Sergio check with the complex management as well as the guards to make sure both parties were Fantastic. Great time had by all guests. I cannot wait to do it again. Thanks Keith and Tina Harris and Guest's

Impressive !!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was FANTASTIC! To start, I can't say enough about the host Pauline! She was always there before my trips to answer questions and arrange transport from the Cancun airport. The house was amazing! Plenty of room to roam around and plenty of separate space so you didn't feel on top of each other. The area was secure and close to walk to grab a cab or just cruise down the beach. My friends and I thouroughly enjoyed our stay there for my 40th bday trip. I highly recommend the villa!

AMAZING stay!

  • 5 of 5

I was there for my bachelorette and there were 9 of us total. We had an amazing stay, the house is absolutely gorgeous. Very spacious, with 4 different balconies, never felt crowded. The rooftop is great for having a morning coffee and enjoying the ocean view.

Sergio, the property manager, is always there if you need anything, very helpful. Maria, the chef, makes the best Mexican you have ever tried. I highly recommend her, you got to order dinner 2 or 3 times at least.

The house is 2 blocks from the beach, in a very safe neighborhood, close to 5th Avenue and all the restaurants and clubs.

We were all happy with our stay and will definitely come back one day!

Loved your villa!

  • 5 of 5

We brought our family to Casa Palmas in Playa del Carmen for our 50th anniversary. The best part of this vacation was talking with the owner, Pauline.

She helped us with everything question I had and then suggested things I hadn't thought of such as having the driver stop at a grocery store on our way to the house from the airport.

We appreciated having our first dinner catered so I didn't need to worry about cooking. Laura did such a wonderful job...the food was delicious and we had enough left-overs for lunch the next day. Pauline can take care of this.

I suggest using the the personal transportation she suggests...so much better than taxis and you're delivered to the house.

We did have one problem which was the air conditioners on the 2nd and 3rd floors. For some reason they weren't producing cool air so it was very hot.

Sergio thought the AC company had fixed them, but we continued to have quite hot nights. Whew!

Our grand daughters loved the splash pool and spent much of their "home time" in the pools. There were floating rafts behind the house along with an outdoor shower.

I know you will appreciate all that this villa has to offer. Thank you, Pauline!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice words Judy, it was very nice helping you organize the vacation for your 50th wedding anniversary. I will miss our telephone calls loll. I'm very sorry for the A/C but I really wish you had contacted me I would have taken care of that right away. It was the Freon that had escaped. It has been resolved :) Please come back soon Pauline

Lovely property, balcony on each level including a roof top lounge area.

  • 5 of 5

I’ve rented a lot through VRBO and Pauline has been the best host so far. Pauline is the sweetest, most genuine host one could ask for. She was quick to respond with questions or concerns. She uses Sergio as a property manager, who was also on point! Checking in and out was a smooth process. We used their recommended van service to and from the airport, which was awesome considering we left the house at 5:15am. The house worked perfect for 4 guys, as we each had our own room. Top notch appliances in the house with water dispensers on the 1st & 2nd levels. Casa Palmas is in the perfect location in Playa, a couple blocks from the beach and close to downtown in a gated residential community. Security is always riding around on scooters. If you want to stay in for a night, hire Sergio’s mom to cook some authentic Mexican food. This was my 3rd time to Playa del Carmen and I just wished I had found Pauline’s place earlier. I definitely recommend her house because of the location and for anyone who needs a lot of space. Thanks Pauline and Sergio, Casa Palmas really made our trip to Playa a memorable one!
