About Curt Henderson

I have owned and rented out homes in Mexico for the last 20 plus years. I have a passion for the country and the people and one-day plan on spending a large part of my retired time there. I have never had a guest show up at Casa Blanca that was not blown away at just how nice it is and how friendly the staff is.

Your complete mind blown 100% satisfaction is our mission statement. We have a 20 year in a row of 5-star guest reviews with more 5-star guest reviews than any other home in Playa. That does not happen by accident. I understand the leap of faith involved with renting a vacation home in a foreign country from a person you have never met. That combined with the pressure the person designated with the responsibility of finding the vacation home for the family or group of friends is under. So, we have done everything we can think of to remove the stress and help with this leap of faith.

When you request info about Casa Blanca Beach House you will receive a 16-page guest book with not only information about the house and neighborhood but it includes info about Playa del Carmen, restaurants, dive shops, transportation, local attractions, emergency phone numbers, local medical offices and pharmacies, photographers, wedding planners and pretty much everything else that has come up over the last 15 years.

You will be provided with the cell phone numbers of the house manager an me so you can call or text anytime and as often as you need if you have questions or need something. We put you first and are responsive at your convenience not ours.

We hope you will stay with us.

Curt Henderson purchased this house in 2003

Why Curt Henderson chose Quintana Roo

For the quality of the property and the convenience of the location.

This house was dramatically remodeled in 2016 and has USA/Canada custom quality accommodations and bathrooms. Every room of the house has air conditioning; this is not typical of most of the other homes available for rent in Playa.

The house is just 55 steps to the soft white sands of the Caribbean ocean and only a 5-minute walk to the famous 5th street in downtown Playa del Carmen.

What makes this house unique

Privacy and luxury come to mind first. It is a gated guarded neighborhood so you do not have the normal beach traffic. People cannot get into our neighborhood unless they belong there. The staff will make you feel like you are rich and famous. They do your Grocery shopping for you and laundry etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this beautiful house with our two kids and two of their friends. With four bedrooms and four bathrooms everybody had their own space. The beach is literally a 1 minute walk from the house. The house is well appointed and very clean as the maid comes everyday!! One of the nicest things about this property is the support staff. Booking the house through Curt was so easy as he was a pleasure to deal with. Both the house manager and the maintenance man stopped by on day one to make sure that we had everything we needed. The transportation company that was recommended was terrific we also booked them for a day excursion to Tulum. Their driver planned a day for us that included the ruins, a swimming sink hole and a great beach front restaurant. Playa Del Carmen is an excellent location from the house you can walk everywhere! We walked to Walmart for groceries and took a taxi back. The ride back cost all of $6.00. The area where the house is located is very safe it is in a gated community and is patrolled by security 24/7. We loved our VRBO vacation and can't wait to return.

Girls Week at Casa Blanca

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a girls getaway! The house was great and was truly 50 steps from the beach. We were able to walk downtown to shop, eat, and drink. It was especially nice to have a maid and someone to get our groceries--we loved the fact that we didn't have to think about all those things like we do at home. It was a perfect getaway for us and I know we would love to do it again next year!!!

Hemos pasado unas excelentes vacaciones en Casa Blanca de Playacar. Tiene una ubicación muy buena, a pasitos de la playa. a menos de 10 minutos caminando de la 5th Avenida. La casa es muy, pero muy cómoda, y el personal extraordinario, tanto el administrador como el personal de limpieza y mantenimiento. Siempre dispuestos a darnos la mejor estadía. Con muy buena información de que hacer, a donde ir y que cuidados tomar. Hemos regresado muy satisfechos de alquilar casa para vacacionar fuera del país. Se lo recomiendo a amigos.

Excelente casa para vacacionar!!!

  • 5 of 5

Fuimos en el mes de enero 2017, éramos 3 familias (parientes y amigos). La casa superó ampliamente nuestras expectativas. En el aeropuerto nos estaban esperando y nos trasladaron directamente a Casablanca. Como era de noche pudimos entrar con la clave. La heladera estaba completa con las compras que habíamos solicitado anteriormente. La casa es muy amplia: 4 dormitorios con sus baños, cocina amplia, living con un baño, comedor con mesa grande para 10 personas, piscina muy linda con un jacuzzi, etc. Todo lo que uno necesita para estar como de en vacaciones. Nosotros éramos 12 personas y estuvimos cómodos. El servicio de limpieza diario está incluido. Además están incluidos el agua purificada, rollos de cocina, papel higiénico, jabón para lavar ropa, para el lavavajillas, etc. Alberto fue muy amable con sus recomendaciones, al igual que Julián y todo el staff que trabaja en Casablanca. Otra mencion se merece la ubicación, es excelente, verdaderamente a 50 pasos del mar y a solo 5 minutos caminando de la 5ta. Avenida. Realmente nos gustó mucho Casablanca y esperamos volver pronto!!

Fantastic Family trip

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing week at Casa Blanca. The house is beautiful- just as described-and the beach is 50 barefoot steps away from your door. We used the chef most nights while we were there and I can highly recommend her. She served a variety of foods that our entire party enjoyed including some things that were more family type foods that you would never get in any restaurant. Delicious desserts, too! The thing that really makes a vacation at Casa Blanca work so well is all the service you get from the house manager, concierge, transportation company, etc. We used the transportation company to tour Tulum and Akumal Bay which was amazing. We went back for another day to Akumal because we liked it so much. Thanks for an incredible trip!
