This property is everything it claims to be and more!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed all the comforts of Casa Caracol and the time we spent with our family in this relaxed setting.

The housekeeping, maintenance and your personnel were outstanding. Alberto, the house manager was extremely helpful and responsive to any and all of our needs.

The home owner state side was very supportive in arranging a in home chef as well as recommending transportation, fishing expeditions and the best places to dine in Playa Del Carmen.

Constantina, the chef is absolutely amazing and her authentic Mexican meals were outstanding, certainly a highlight for each of us on our stay. The ability to see her preparation and work in process was a unique experience that we all enjoyed. Her guacamole (and the presentation) carrot soup or lime torte were favorites of our clan.

Our Thanks for being everything you represented!

The perfect size property

  • 5 of 5

This is our second consecutive year staying at Casa Caracol and it was like coming home. My family includes 3 grandchildren ages 8, 7 & 3 so the one bedroom was perfect for them...each having their own twin bed and even an extra. Of course they love the pool and we love being steps from the shore and having all the beach gear ready and waiting. Having a full functioning kitchen is my need being that I love to cook usually making breakfast, lunch for the beach and hors d'oeurves for cocktail hour. Having a grill is also a big plus for the men. This year we rented a small car for our marketing expeditions and it was nice having a parking pad on the property. The housekeeper, Adriana, and the house manager, Alberto, are both wonderful and see to our needs professionally and quickly. It is so nice being close to 5th Ave. and all the restaurants. Each one is better then the next and I must admit I need that walk home at night! There is nothing the owners Nancy and Ed haven't covered for making this rental a wonderful experience. My husband and I look forward to next year's vacation with our family and I know they all do, as well. Thank you Nancy and Ed for helping us make wonderful family memories!

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us stayed at Casa Caracol for 5 days in early March and cannot wait to go back! The house is very well located near the beach and town. The house itself is spacious and clean, with a great pool and outdoor area (lounge and beach chairs included). We really appreciated the cleaning staff and, Alberto - the house manager - was a great resource for restaurant suggestions and pre-arrival kitchen stocking. Ed and Nancy made the booking and arrival process easy so we could hit the ground running. Thanks for a great vacation!

Great House for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in early February for a family vacation with ages 27-73. The house was great. There were 8 of us and each couple had their own room/bathroom. It was really nice to come back from the beach and hang out in the pool. Alberto was very helpful with great information on everything. Initially, we were concerned because one of our party could do limited walking but all we had to do was call the security guard and a taxi was there in minutes. Very easy! Constantina cooked a feast for us one night...her guacamole was amazing! Looking at booking again next year.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

First, The Owners of this Amazing Home are great to work with. From the minute I requested booking, & Up to the day of arrival & us missing our Flights due to weather Nancy was SO nice and helpful. She helped with transportation,(Rhino Transportation ) which was also great . The house is what they say, 50 steps to the beach, I'm short , took me 72, I counted , it was wonderful walking back and fourth to house , which you did'nt really have to since they have a cooler, beach chairs, and umbrellas that you can take with you. The backyard pool was refreshing also. The location of house is great to walk into town, we did every night . The Master suite upstairs was wonderful. Very quiet . The 3 other bedrooms downstairs were also big and bathrooms very spacious. Plenty of hot water , I mention this because we stayed at another home in this same area 2 months prior and not nearly enough hot water for all to shower. The housekeeper keeps the home very well, spotless actually. House Manager was very nice to visit with also and did a great job at pre-stocking the house with all our goodies. Everything was just perfect !!!

Great Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 adult kids, plus their spouses, and 2 grandbabies with us on vacation. It was a great family get-away, as the beach was within walking distance and the pool just a jump away. Hiring Constantina to cook 4 of our nightly meals was like being in a resort. The food was fabulous and her homemade margaritas very tasty. She even changed them to strawberry margaritas upon request. The house manager was so helpful with ideas of daily excursions and the tipping policies within the local area for taxis & resturants. He was just a "text" away. We were able to walk almost anywhere, and obtaining a taxi to further destinations was easy. The days were so relaxing and laid back that we spent the majority of the trip just by the pool or beach. A girls' day at the Grand Hyatt for a spa was nice. I would recommend if you want to play golf that you do all the research before arriving, as it seemed confusing with the course names, locations, and cost. Golf was pricey but we were able to golf at the Grand Coral Riviera Maya (after much research) for approx $135/person including cart. It was a beautiful course.

I, also, want to say that working with the owners was a "God-send". Both would follow up on any of my questions with phonecalls and wanted to make sure that we had a relaxed, easy vacation. Their advice and help was above & beyond what I have ever experienced in previous vacation rental transactions. Thank you so very much Ed and Nancy!! One more thing, we hired a professional photographer to do family photos on the beach, and were pleased with the recommendation that Nancy had given us. We haven't received all of our photos as yet, but the "tease" of 7 pictures that she did send were spectacular.
