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 Quintana Roo

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.

Best house location... Best experience we've had in Playa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of 10 and needed a house that could adequately handle everyone. Casa de la Pescada Blanca didn't disappoint! Their dining guide showed us only the BEST places to eat! The management staff is friendly and helpful (with great english) and the maids took care of our things well. We were excited about the two pools, but frankly, that amazing rooftop is where we spent more of our days (and late evenings). If you have a sizable group, this place is worth a look.

Luxurious place to stay, even for a couple of nights

  • 5 of 5

We only had a couple of nights in Playa, and it worked out perfectly that his house was open during that time. It was incredible. The perfect location, clean, and everything you would expect. The rooftop is incredible. The views of Cozumel at night are amazing from the rooftop pool.

Very nice house . Great location.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed the house, the people taking care of the house were very professionals and helpful . The owner got back to us very fast. We have only one complain and it is that they took money from the deposit due to towels that according to the housekeeper were permanently stained . Be careful and review everything because they will get your money from the deposit , this is a very expensive rental so it isn't right that they tale more money.

Owner's Response: We HOPE that those looking at this review read the below and a couple of our emails with this guest. When we rent Our House (Casa de la Pescada Blanca) to guests, We want every guests to enjoy their stay! We bring the Egyptian cotton sheets down in our luggage from the States as they are far more comfortable for our guests to sleep in. We also have our towels, sheets, etc. inspected by our staff after every guest leaves so they are perfect for the next guests to arrive. We understand that every now and then, an accident happens and that is just part of renting out our house for the past 18 years. We have never had to keep any of the damage deposits. However, as can be seen by below email communication with these guests; it was not just 1 or two towels - it was over 20 of our towels, and multiple sets of Egyptian cotton sheets. Refunded 1/2 of damage deposit due to damage/staining to: 2 X sets of King sheets, 1 set Double sheets, 1 King Bed cover, and 20+ various size towels. All stained with some sort of skin tanning stain. We are only charging $200.00 rather than the actual cost of over the $400.00 damage deposit. EMAILS WITH GUEST: “Hi Scott, I'm back at the US. We had a fantastic trip and we enjoyed very much the stayed at the house. My sister Alexandra was there to do the check-out. We talked over the phone and she told me that there were 10 stained towels. We are responsible for 2 broken glasses and I had informed Veronica about it. I appreciate your response about it, Regards, Soledad” “Soledad, Thank you for the email, glad to hear that you had a great time and the house was as expected. Veronica called me this AM about the towels and sheets. I fly down in two weeks and have her putting the towels and sheets aside so that I can see them. I was just down there mid December and replaced all the towels/sheets in the house, if it is wear and tear–you will not be charged for the towels I will let you know what I find out on the towels when I get there. thank you for letting Veronica know about the glasses, glass breakage can happen, so this is not a problem, Sincerely, Scott” “I will wait for your response, Thanks, Soledad” “Soledad, I am looking at towels and sheet sets right now. There are multiple sets of sheets and towels that we have to throw away. Replacing them will be more than the $400 damage deposit. However, we are willing to send you back $200 of your damage deposit as a "gesture" of good faith. Sincerely, Scott"

Everything you could possibly need all in walking distance from this immaculate home. The best service you could ask for and enough space to comfortably fit our group of 9 adults. This was our third time back and I'm counting down the days till our next trip to this amazing paradise home.
