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!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

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.

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"

Winter break!

  • 5 of 5

This house is one of the best in Playa car. What more could you ask for, 1/2 block from the beach and down the road from great restaurants and shops. Veronica the house manager was always very helpful and even gave us a ride to the grocery store.

Looking forward to going back!

  • 5 of 5

We truly had a wonderful time in Playa Del Carmen and our stay at Pescada Blanca was great! The roof top pool and BBQ is an amazing addition to the house. We spent most of our time up there enjoying the view. The location is steps away from the beach, walking distance to Senor Frogs and an easy walk or cab ride to la Quinta Avenida. I was very happy with our proximity to everything. Food, groceries, beach and bar all at your foot steps.

On top of having a great view, comfortable and clean accommodations, we were also given a concierge service. They helped with everything! Our refrigerator was fully stocked upon our arrival, they booked spa services for us, recommended tasty, local places to eat, made sure our place was clean and did it all with a smile and attentiveness.

If you are choosing to book a house and opt out of a hotel, this gives you hotel living in a more affordable and convenient setting. I would definitely book this place again! Hope you enjoy it is as much as we did.

Nothing Short of Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The number of five star reviews this home has received over the course of 10 years speaks volumes. You can read through each one or you can just book it. There's not much I can say that everyone else hasn't already commented on, so I'll just highlight a few of my favorite things.

1) Scott and his team are very easy to work with from initial inquiry to check-out. Veronica, with Bric, met us at the house upon arrival to show us around and was there when we departed to say goodbye. Scott also provided us his driver's information for private transportation to and from the airport. I highly suggest using this service.

2) I emailed Bric a list of groceries about a week before our trip and the refrigerator and pantry were stocked when we arrived. I've never had that done for me before and it was overwhelmingly appreciated. We simply paid for the groceries and left a tip. (Don't forget to ask for a bag of ice.)

3) It's a very short and easy walk to the beach and all the action on 5th Ave. This really comes in handy if you don't have a car and want to venture out. We're from TX where it's always hot and humid, but Mexico has us beat, hands down.

Now, the most important part...

4) The rooftop patio makes this house, in my opinion. We spent hours and hours just lounging in the pool, staring at the ocean. There's plenty of seating, a BBQ pit, a large, cushioned "bed" for a quick nap and a restroom. There's really no reason to leave!

In closing, I'd like to thank Scott, Veronica and the rest of the crew for an amazing week. We needed it and were sad to leave. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this upscale rental in the PDC area. We don't normally rent vacation homes more than once, but there's a few on our shortlist that we'd visit again and this is definitely one of them.
