Absolutely Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

I have to rave about this home and the experience we had there. We had two families staying in the home with a total of eight children. It was perfect. Each bedroom has a connecting bathroom. The kitchen and eating area are a great size. There are two amazing features of the home. The private pool! It is very private. The pictures from the listing must be a little old because the bushes and trees around the pool have really matured. People can barely see the pool as they are walking by. Our kids spent countless hours in this pool. It is clean, warm and even has a shallow end. The second feature was that the beach is literally 50 steps away. They are not exaggerating! We would wander down to the beach, come back and shower off in the outdoor shower, and then jump directly into the pool! The neighborhood is very high end with 24 hour guards. You feel very safe. There are ruins right across the street from the house and bigger ones a small walk away. At the beginning of the neighborhood there are tons of shops and a taxi stand. The owners of this home were a delight to work with. I could go on and on!

Very comfy stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 just stayed at Casacaracol for the week and it was extremely clean and comfortable. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out! Owners were attentive to our needs and their housekeeper was wonderful 😊

Beautiful home, wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family loved our stay in Casa Caracol at the end of June. We were a large group - my husband I, our three sons and their girlfriends. As the other reviews mentioned, the home is spacious and well appointed. The daily maid service is wonderful and having Constantina prepare a meal is a treat that should not be missed! They accommodated the vegetarians in our group beautifully. The owners are amazing at providing helpful information and recommendations. Felipe provided our transportation to and from PDC as well as a driver for our day of sightseeing and we can only say good things about their services.

The beach is beautiful and close and we loved being able to walk to shopping and restaurants. We hope to return to PDC and stay in Casa Caracol again. Soon!

Great Stay at CasaCaracol

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed at CasaCaracol at the end of April. The house is really spacious with four bedrooms (3 king beds + 4 singles). Walked down to the beach sith chairs most days. Realy close. Walked to Playa as well - about a 7 minute walk. Nice to not need a car for transportation! Cleaning daily was great to have. Used a shuttle to and from airport. Pool is great although not a huge patio around it. Great place over all.

My 50th

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of three couples who all enjoy our creature comforts which is without a doubt what we got. The pool is perfect size and depth to float around while enjoying a cocktail or two, the bedrooms are nice and comfy, the kitchen is well stocked and overall the house is very clean. Nancy was incredible in handling all the details. We pre-ordered groceries which is a must so you can relax from the moment you walk in the door. We agree with the other reviews that hiring Adrianna's mom to come over and cook is a really good idea. The lady can cook! Nancy recommended a driver by the name of Felipe and I have to give the guy high marks. The price was quite reasonable and as advertised he was waiting for us right outside the airport doors. We even hired him for a day of excursions again for a very reasonable fee. We did go to H.C. Meats for a lunch run, very very yummy but do take a cab. 5th Ave might be a 15 minute walk if your not in a hurry. The only "complaint" I have is not enough hot water but certainly not a deal breaker. All and all this house was as exactly as advertised. Our security deposit was returned promptly and we are looking forward to returning someday.

Incredible week at Casa Caracol

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 8 friends plus an infant had the very best time at Casa Caracol. From the comfortable beds, the nice bathrooms, and the well-equipped kitchen to the unlimited drinking water and beach towels, this place is packed with anything and everything you could ever want for a wonderful vacation. There was so much space, the pool area was fabulous, and the dinners made by Constantina were unforgettable. The cleaning staff was more thorough than any we've ever seen, and if there was ever an issue, Julian was available at a moment's notice. We honestly felt like royalty while we were there. We can't recommend this villa enough. It's private and quiet, but only a minute walk to the beach and a 15-minute walk to town. If we visit again, we would definitely book Casa Caracol. Thank you so much, Casa Caracol team!
