About Scott Uram

We bought the house as a family vacation spot...we fell in love with Playa! COMPLETE EXTREME LUXURY REMODEL DECEMBER 2014!

Scott Uram purchased this house in 2003

Why Scott Uram chose Playa del Carmen

BEAUTIFUL COMPLETE NEW REMODEL house with the BEST ROOFTOP & VIEWS (with POOL) in ALL of PLAYACAR, a Great location without having to have a rental car....walking distance..Great Beaches and Breathtaking Views...Great restaurant choices all within walking distance. Amazing carefree accommodations with Caretaker, Maid, and Concierge to Assist you with ALL your needs!

Playa is so multi-cultural. It is the least Mexican town in Mexico. We only say that because Spanish is just one of many languages spoken here. The cuisine is incredible diverse also. The pedestrian mall really slows things down and keeps downtown more like a village.

What makes this house unique

Walking Distance to just about any type of entertainment for all ages..... 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 is there for YOU, they will even do your shopping for you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

02/13/12 Positive

Our family of 7 adults and 2 young children had

a wonderful vacation at Casa de la Pescada

Blanca. The house was perfect for a large family,

steps from the gorgeous beach and a short walk

from the town. The house was well maintained

by Julian and the house keepers. Julian

arranged for all the grocery shopping and we had

some great meals cooked to order by a lovely

cook. The meals were served to us by the cook's

family members and were modestly priced. A

perfect solution for a family with young children.

We'll be back!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5


Have to say you set the bar high with your property and how well you managed it for our visit last summer. Our son could not travel out of country this summer so we found a place on the lake in the Austin area. Very nice and we enjoyed it. But, your property and our vacation in Playa Del

Carmen remains our favorite. .

There were so many times we compared even the smallest of detail with your property and thoughtfulness in anticipating our needs. The Austin property was beautiful, but managed very differently.

You were so friendly demonstrating a genuine concern for our comfort in your home.

I wanted to thank you again for everything and making that summer so memorable!

Hopefully we can return next year!

Best wishes to you and your family,

Bussell Family

If I may :

For those who may be looking for a phenomenal place in playa del carmen- this is it!

The photos are beautiful - we were very surprised to discover it was even more beautiful in person. Honestly represented online- Beautifully maintained, filled with everything you could possible need. Scott Uram was gracious and genuine, always available to us should we have questions. They recommended a few excursions - we had a blast!

They assisted us in scheduling a driver from the airport! He was welcoming, kind and punctual! We used his service several times.

We walked into the home to find music flowing throughout, our groceries had been purchased and put away and The most lovely young lady greeted us making us feel even more welcome as she gave us a tour of the home. She was priceless!

The rooms are beautifully decorated and very spacious with plenty of storage for your clothing and suitcases. Every Bed- very comfortable!!! .

Both pools were beautiful, warm, and impeccably maintained.

The view of the ocean - exquisite! Also a short distance from the house. The beach was not crowded nor was it rocky. Beautiful beachfront area! The surrounding neighborhood was very safe, quiet, friendly, also beautifully maintained!

We enjoyed walking to the shopping plaza. So much to see and purchase. There we found a variety of restaurants to choose from. All very good filled with friendly staff. Again - very welcoming!

I HIGHLY, HIGHLY Recommend this property and look forward in visiting again - hopefully next summer!

(5stars and then some!!!)

Awesome stay and loved the house!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Casa de la Pescada Blanca several times and it just keeps getting better. Their concierge, Veronica, is great to work with and very attentive. It's wonderful to have the second pool on the top sun deck to cool off in and is a great spot to enjoy a late afternoon cocktail.

Great work on the upgrades and many thanks for the wonderful time.
