I Wish We Could Buy It
I do not have enough good things I can say about this home. Honestly, if I could, I would buy it!
A group of 6 friends and myself rented this home for two weeks in July 2011 and we could not have made a better choice. Everything about the home was great, it was truthfully like a home away from home for us. The modern decorations were beautiful, the beds were super comfortable, the layout of the kitchen was great, the living rooms were spacious and clean. Overall, it was just excellent.
We also loved having the pool, and even for a hot July, it was still impressively refreshing to have a place to relax in when we didnt feel like walking to the beach. Vimex rentals were also great about being there anytime we needed anything. Twice throughout the rental we lost hot water and withing an hour both times vimex had someone over to fix it. They were always timely and so nice about dealing with any issues or requests that we had.
The location of the home may be one of it's best features. Never having been to Mexico before, I did intesive amounts of research prior to our vacation and Casa Katarina was in the ideal location to suit every one of them. We spent almost every night walking up and down 5th ave and we were merely steps from the entrace of Playacar which is right at the beginning of 5th ave. Many nights we even walked pretty far into Playa and never felt that it was too much of a hike. The beach was a breeze to find from our spot and there are hundreds of restaurants within walking distance. However, being in the gated commuity does make you feel a little safer even though Playa as a whole felt like one of the safest towns I've ever visted.
Many days we even left Playa and went to other towns such as Akumal, Tulum, Cozumel, Punta Venado, and Cancun. We tried out ALL types of transportation and everything, i mean everything (the ADO bus, taxis, colectivos, the COZ ferry, and vans) were all less than a 5 minutes walk away. It truly could not have been a better located home.
If we ever visit Mexico again, which I hope we will, there is no doubt in my mind that Casa Katarina will be our home once more.
Some of my favorite Playa restaurants: Byblos, Sur, Pummarola, HC Monterrey, and El Fogon! Enjoy :)
Thanks Vimex for the Vacation of a lifetime!
