We spent a week at the house in Dec 2015 for a family Christmas get away. The house is just beautiful with very nice furnishings and everything you need. Location is practically perfect with 10 minute access to town through the subdivision or on the beach. The photos don't lie, you will have a great time in this property. In addition to the house we arranged transportation to/from the airport with the management company.
Unfortunately I feel the property management company isn't providing the service I would expect in a property at this price point. Our issues started with pick-up at the airport when we arrived early and the driver arrived late, almost an hour after we landed. The "emergency" number I requested never worked throughout the stay, no matter how I tried to call the number, so no assistance finding out where our driver was, or if he was even enroute. You also cannot call the emergency number from the house phone after the office closes. Some issue about calling a Mexican cell phone that was never adequately explained to me. Monica reminded me that I should only use the number in an "emergency" - the numbert never worked. I sensed she didn't want to be bothered after hours.
Other issues we had to have resolved: numerous lights inop (we arrived at night) including the pool light, we never took a hot shower the whole visit (they have the water heater turned down to save money), air conditioner failed in one of the bedrooms (though I pointed this out in the morning we went out on a tour it apparently couldn't be repaired during the day and wasn't fixed until we were back in the house that evening). In short the property wasn't prepared for our arrival - no pre arrival inspection to see that everything was in order. I also found it odd that the maintenance man and the pool guy hung out in the house next door during the day Both very nice gentlemen, but I got to know them a little better than I really cared to during our visit.
One last thing - only the bedrooms are air conditioned leaving the main living space, kitchen and laundry room air conditioned. Very warm transition from the bedroom to that part of the house. I can't imagine renting this house in the summer, unless you like it hot and muggy.
It was good, but disappointing for the price. Now that I am familiar with the area I'll look at other properties before I consider Villa Caribe I for our next visit.
