About Erin Leriger

I am a Canadian living in Playa del Carmen for 9 years. Come stay with us and enjoy in the ease of knowing a friendly face is awaiting your arrival. I have enjoyed living in paradise and want to assist you in making the vacation of your dreams. Relax and be stress free knowing there are no communication barriers and full service vacation consultants that can assist you with your many vacation desires. I am a fanatic for the new adventure park Xplor. It is an amazing zip line, cenote swim & raft experience. The amphibious buggies are a blast to drive. A buffet is available all day long and is very delicious. The fresh fruit juices around the park are thirst quenching. It is an experience like no other! Tulum is one of my favorite places to go and relax and be at peace. There is no other place on earth as tranquil as the soft white beaches of Tulum. I love to enjoy a meal at the beautiful Mezzanine restaurant on my way back to Playa. Thai food as fresh as you have ever had. The restaurant / boutique hotel overlooks the Caribbean ocean. The sunsets are tranquilizing.

This property, Casa del Sol-Altavista was amazing. The location was good for walking or driving. We had 10 adults and a 1 year old. The common rooms, kitchen, dining, family, pool table was open and large. Everything we needed was at the property. Plenty of privacy in the bedrooms and all had bathrooms. All was clean and secure. I really recommend this if you have a large group! Only accommodation we had to do was to block the stairs to keep the baby away from them. If I end up back in playa del Carmen, I will look to Erin for rental opportunities, she met us when we arrived and explained everything to u . BEAUTIFUL HOUSE!

Family Vacation was Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Alta Vista is perfectly situated near downtown 5th Avenue where there are lots of restaurants, bars, shopping & night life, but still nestled in a beautiful residential neighborhood for peace & quiet. Our family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed cooking and eating together in the gourmet kitchen, playing pool in the great room, and swimming in the roof top pool.

We enjoyed in home massages, catered dinners with mariachi's, and a full-time driver...all set up by the fabulous Uno Events & Catering team. Susan Lima was Extraordinary & I highly recommend her and the company for all your entertainment and excursions.

We can't wait to come back!

Large relaxing villa walking distance to town

  • 3 of 5

Overall the villa is pretty good. There were just a few things here and there which knocked my rating down from a Good to an Average. Based on that let's start with the positives. The villa is very spacious which allowed for all 20+ of us to spread out and relax. All of the bedrooms are huge and have plenty of storage. The main entertaining floor is wide open, spacious and can sit all of your guests. Loved the fact the kitchen had two full size fridges. Each floor has it's own terrace which allowed for a quiet place to sip coffee or have a cocktail. The rooftop deck was fantastic and the pool is actually bigger than the pictures show. Although it's more of a wading pool the pool is great for all ages. The villa was very clean and Angela and the cleaning crew were great.

Some of the negatives... The first two days of our stay we had a ton of rain. Windows leaked and water ran into the house from the main terrace (Angela arrived quickly with extra towels). The kitchen lacks storage. With 20+ people we quickly ran out of places to put food. We had to reorganize and move things around to accommodate our purchases. The main fridge broke and we had to throw away all of our meat and dairy. Although Angela did have the fridge fixed quickly we were not offered anything for our losses. The kitchen lacks sharp knives (imagine cutting limes with a butter knife). I also think the kitchen lacked some basic necessities; things like plastic wrap, foil, plastic bags were non existent and the two very small plastic containers were definitely not enough for leftovers. The BBQ is currently located on the ground floor in the courtyard. IMO the rooftop is where the grill should be (where it would be only one level away from the kitchen). I also thought it would be great if the rooftop had a mini fridge and a trash can. Although there is a cooler the convenience of a mini fridge would be great. The pool is beginning to lose many of the tiles off of the bottom of the pool. This created sharp places for toes and feet. During our stay many of the bathrooms ran out of hot water for showers. We were also shorted on towels. Rooms with two beds were only given two bath and pool towels. By default there should have been four of each towel in each room that could possibly sleep four. We also had several people during our stay wake up with mysterious bites all over them. It certainly could have been an allergic reaction to something but many believe they were the bites of bed bugs.

Quite a nice place

  • 4 of 5

This house is quite nice. While not perfect, it certainly provided our group of 8 single guys with a good, solid vacation spot. About a block or so from the beach, the view of the sea was largely unobstructed from the roof top pool. (The pool is only about 3 feet deep, but all 8 of us could get in it without touching anyone else's toes.) The house is located in a gated area and the walk out to the gate was about 10 minutes. The commercial part of town starts at the gate, but it is another 5 or 10 minute walk to the heart of "party central". The home itself was quiet, but very close to the neighbors. Upon entering the house you can tell it is quite a decent place. There is nice tiling, a curved staircase up to the great room, etc. All of us had our own, quiet bedroom, with 4 of the rooms on the main floor and 4 down on the lower floor. The lower floor opens to a small courtyard, but I guess that was for the house on the other side of it, even though we sat out there for a bit once. The bedrooms were appointed quite well, some with two queen beds and all had very nice bathrooms. Plus, there was a good TV (flat screen) and controllable air conditioning in every room. The great room is indeed great. There was a balcony with a couple of chairs and a small side table right off of it (the view from that level was a bit obscured by the house in front of it, but nothing too bad). The large couch was nice, as was the dining room table that can sit about 16. The kitchen was basically fine, with a good amount of utensils, pots, pans, drinkware, dishwasher, 2 refrigerators, etc. and a big island for cooking and convening. There was even a nice sized pool table (although it wasn't perfect, but at least it was there for fun gaming!). The upper level, on the roof, was a highlight. Lounging in the pool or under the gazebo with a beverage while overlooking the water was quite relaxing and pleasurable.

The staff was very accommodating, quick to respond, helpful and nice. Overall, I would recommend this house, especially for a large group.

I can't say enough good things about staying at Alta Vista! I had a group of 12 friends at this property for a wedding and it exceeded our expectations. The service and property were excellent. Erin an her team were more than accommodating for our group and were available to answer any questions we had.

Beautiful, comfortable vacation home in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My family and some of our friends rented this home in March for our daughters senior high school trip. There were 7 adults, and 7 kids. We found the place to be even better than the pictures on the website. The house is absolutely beautiful. It was so nicely maintained and so clean and comfortable. From the minute we inquired about the house, until the end of our stay, the staff was amazing. Any questions we had were always addressed immediately, and they were all so helpful and polite. This house in situated in a perfect location. It is a short 10-15 minute walk to 5th avenue where you will find amazing restaurants and shopping. The beach is beautiful to walk and safe at all times of day. The view from the upper deck of this house is wonderful. The pool was nice to have with a view of the ocean. After a hot day at the beach is was nice to be able to take a dip in the pool to cool off, and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

We absolutely would recommend this property to anyone with a big group. A car is not necessary because you can walk to everything. If you want to get around the taxi's are so easy, or you can arrange transportation through the villa to get to any attraction.

We would recommend that you hire the cooks one night or more. They cooked us a wonderful Mexican meal that was so fresh and we had some leftovers for the next day.

One activity that some of our group really enjoyed was the deep sea fishing through Maroma Adventures. They all caught a fish, including 4 fish over 50 pounds each. They prepare you lunch with your catch, and will fillet fish for you to bring back to the house. We cooked our fish on the grill provided, and feasted on red snapper, and amberjack tuna. It was by far the best fish any of us have ever had!!

The other activities some of us enjoyed was a trip to Xel-Ha, and the ferry to Cozumel. There is also a great place to snorkel a short distance away in Akumal. You can take a taxi there and rent snorkel equipment if necessary. It is a beautiful place to snorkel with the sea turtles and tropical fish.

My family has spent many vacations in Mexico, and this house was by far our favorite. For any big group whether family or friends, this house is perfect. We want to thank everyone at Latin Latitude Vacations for a wonderful trip and for their exceptional service. We hope to be back again some day.
