Casita Coba Our Home Away from Home in Playa
Submitted: June 23, 2012
Stayed: June 2012
I stayed at Casita Coba earlier this month with my husband and three daughters (ages 11, 9 and 9). We began our vacation planning looking for hotels, only to be disappointed by the high prices we would have to pay to accommodate a family of five. It was then that I turned to homeaway.com and found Casita Coba.
What a God send! Casita Coba is everything the web site says it is -- beautifully decorated, immaculately kept, walking distance from a very quiet part of the beach and from the bus station, taxi station and tons of restaurants. With all that nearby, you might get the impression that the condo is in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the town, but it is actually nestled away on a quiet cul-de-sac of sorts.
Though I have spent some time in Mexico, my family had not, and we felt completely safe and comfortable walking everywhere from the condo. The only time we took cabs was on our way home from Wal-Mart. The neighbors we met were all very friendly -- a European family with young children was staying below us, and we met another couple of families (ironically from our home town) around the pool. For the most part, the residents were extremely quiet and kept to themselves -- an apparent mixture of people from Europe, Mexico and the United States.
The condo was a perfect solution for my family of five because my children are all girls, small enough to share a king size bed. We simply could not beat the price -- and get that much space -- at a hotel.
Of course, condo living in a foreign country is not for everyone, especially in a place known for its all-inclusive hotels where you do not have to lift a finger to do anything. At Casita Coba, you will have to navigate your way to restaurants and the grocery store, as well as exchange and deal with money. If you want to go to Mexico and feel like you're still in America, this option would not be for you. But we were there to take in the sights and experiences of the region and preferred to spend our vacation budget on tours, rather than accommodations and personal service.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would do it again and again!
Owner's Response: Such a lovely review, Neisha. It was a great pleasure having you and your family so thoroughly enjoying the charms of Casita Coba.
