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.

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

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.
