Our group of 7 decided to go to Mexico only a few months before we actually did. That doesn't leave alot of room for error. We had several anniversaries to celebrate and some wounds to heal. Luckily we found Casa Caracol. Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of rentals and hotels available because it was September. BUT, finding Casa Caracol was a dream come true. It all started with a few emails to the owners. They were so easy to work with and so easy to communicate with.
When we finally made it to sunny MX after the usual "no sleep" in the last 24 hours, we were absolutely thrilled to see our home for the week. Nancy had arranged for the house manager (who was great) to have a few groceries waiting for us. That is a nice way to start a vacation.
The house is beautiful and HUGE! There is nothing you will need after you walk in the beautiful front door. Unpack your things, grab a beverage and sit by the pool and talk about how lucky you are to get such a great house for a week! Our maid was so sweet and efficient. We are from Wisconsin. I hope she wasn't too freaked out about the amount of beer cans that needed to be recycled every day.....
Oh yes, the beach! The location of Casa Caracol is perfect like everything else about Casa Caracol. Grab a towel, chair, and an umbrella and walk down to the beach. Pretty tough.
And now the best part.....half of our group left after one week and the rest of us were gonna "gypsy" it the 2nd week. No need! Casa Caracol was available and the owners were kind enough to let us stay at a price we could afford. Yes, we became pretty spoiled by the end of the second week.
To sum up, we have stayed in several villas in Phase 1. When it comes to maid service, pool service, ease of communication with the owners, location to the beach, location to town and price compared to similar villas, Casa Caracol is your only choice. Our hats are off to Ed, Ronnie, Nancy and Bob. Thank you for all your kindness, it is very much appreciated and will not be forgotten.
