Very Happy. Thank you.

  • 5 of 5

My parents, my wife and I and our one and three year old stayed here in April 2007. The home is beautiful, spacious, very well furnished and equipped with new appliances. The description and pictures are extremely accurate but can't describe how wonderful this home actually is. Comfortable and cozy, safe and secure, minutes to a quiet semi-private beach or dining, shopping, activities or just plain strolling along Playa's 5th Avenue. This home was a large part of what was a great vacation for all of us. We would rent it again.

GREAT vacation home for family!

  • 5 of 5

All the reviews summed up how wonderful this place is.

We were extremely pleased with our stay. Our 3 children had a fantastic time. Very impressed with the comfort of the home. Extremely convenient to 5th avenue, the restaurants, everything made so easy, even getting a taxi if you needed one. It was home away from home. Thanks to Ron and the property staff. Our family had a BLAST!

Great location, clean , inviting

  • 4 of 5

House was great. Great location. House was clean. The property personal was very friendly and help full.

The only problem is we were charged for power usage for the house for the 8 days . We where never home souring the day and still had to pay. That should be included in our stay .

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of Casa Katarina. Regarding the electric usage charge during guest stay. We provide 150 kilowatts of electric usage per week during our guest stay. This is usually sufficient if guest remember to turn off A/C in rooms they are not using. We charge 4.50 pesos per kilowatt greater than 150 watts per week. This information is in the reservation information and our management company explains this policy at check-in.

Absolutely wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My Husband, myself, and our daughters spent a week at Casa Katerina to celebrate my 50th Bday. The owner Ron and the property manager made every effort to ensure our stay was very enjoyable , even allowing us to have an early check-in. The location of the house is so close to the beach and 5th avenue there is no need for a car or taxi....although we did enjoy the "Rickshaw" rides we would take to walmart and back! The house is so beautiful and spacious with three bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, a great kitchen, and well appointed furniture with modern decorations. There are so many items within the house that we did not expect. For instance, there are beach towels, wine glasses, a full range of cooking pots & pans, utensils, dishes, washing detergents, daily garbage pickup, and bottled water delivered to the door! The air conditioning system worked great cooling down the bedrooms very efficiently and quickly when we would use it in the evening prior to sleeping. The house is well maintained and was very clean upon check-in. We even had our own "poolboy" (Vimex staff) who would clean the pool every morning, which was much appreciated as "poolside" soon became out favorite place to swim, sit, relax, and enjoy the company we were with. My husband and I travel to Mexico twice a year and are looking forward to getting an opportunity to stay at Casa Katerina the next time we are in Playa! Thank you Ron for the amazing accommodations in paradise! And to Vimex staff for the excellent service we received from them.

I Wish We Could Buy It

  • 5 of 5

I do not have enough good things I can say about this home. Honestly, if I could, I would buy it!

A group of 6 friends and myself rented this home for two weeks in July 2011 and we could not have made a better choice. Everything about the home was great, it was truthfully like a home away from home for us. The modern decorations were beautiful, the beds were super comfortable, the layout of the kitchen was great, the living rooms were spacious and clean. Overall, it was just excellent.

We also loved having the pool, and even for a hot July, it was still impressively refreshing to have a place to relax in when we didnt feel like walking to the beach. Vimex rentals were also great about being there anytime we needed anything. Twice throughout the rental we lost hot water and withing an hour both times vimex had someone over to fix it. They were always timely and so nice about dealing with any issues or requests that we had.

The location of the home may be one of it's best features. Never having been to Mexico before, I did intesive amounts of research prior to our vacation and Casa Katarina was in the ideal location to suit every one of them. We spent almost every night walking up and down 5th ave and we were merely steps from the entrace of Playacar which is right at the beginning of 5th ave. Many nights we even walked pretty far into Playa and never felt that it was too much of a hike. The beach was a breeze to find from our spot and there are hundreds of restaurants within walking distance. However, being in the gated commuity does make you feel a little safer even though Playa as a whole felt like one of the safest towns I've ever visted.

Many days we even left Playa and went to other towns such as Akumal, Tulum, Cozumel, Punta Venado, and Cancun. We tried out ALL types of transportation and everything, i mean everything (the ADO bus, taxis, colectivos, the COZ ferry, and vans) were all less than a 5 minutes walk away. It truly could not have been a better located home.

If we ever visit Mexico again, which I hope we will, there is no doubt in my mind that Casa Katarina will be our home once more.

Some of my favorite Playa restaurants: Byblos, Sur, Pummarola, HC Monterrey, and El Fogon! Enjoy :)

Thanks Vimex for the Vacation of a lifetime!
