"Very comfortable and equipped, totally clean, close to shops and restaurants of La Quinta Avenida, but within a quiet and nice area.
Across the street from the beach, plus with a very nice pool are, we enjoyed our stay very, very much!"

"We have just had the best holiday of our lives at Casa Houston. The house is more spacious and attractive even in real life than it already appears in the photos. Plenty of room to sleep peacefully (listening to the surf, cooled by the fans and the sea breezes), to cook (though the next door housekeeper Gloria makes absolutely delicious meals for you on request), and to lounge around outside and down the steps on the beautiful white sandy beach. You can look in both directions all along the beach as far as the eye can see and day after day spot almost no one else there. The caretakers for the property are lovely people who rake the sand, clean the house, and tend to all the facilities. The local area has many great restaurants, especially in Tulum town. And the manager's brother Hugo Estrada (website yourgreenguide) offers wonderful adventurous tours of the sea (snorkelling, Dolphins, turtles) and the lagoons (crocodiles, monkeys, Mayan ruins, mangroves). And so much enthusiastic knowledge of the wildlife. We very much hope to go back. It is the real deal for family adventure. Thank you to the Casa Houston team!"

"No es la primera vez que viajo a playa del carmen, he rentado otros departamentos que sinceramente me han dejado mucho que desear, en una de mis últimas vistas vi los condominio de porto playa y me gustaron mucho, hace un par de semanas decidí regresar a playa con mi familia y hospedarme ahí el departamento fue la 221 tiene una maravillosa vista, una ubicación perfecta por que se encuentra a unos pasos de la playa y de la quinta avenida, te da un ambiente de privacidad que no te ofrecen otros lugares, el departamento es muy limpio y fresco tiene su propio jacuzzi con vista al mar y una palap. Es ideal para venir con tu familia o amigos.
Seguramente regresaré a playa como siempre y seguramente reservare nuevamente este departamento."

"I did extensive research comparing different properties in the Playa del Carmen area and if you are looking for a two bedroom, the search is over. Just pray that your dates are available and book it!
The condo is beautiful and comfortable and the rooftop deck is unbeatable. We ate breakfast and had happy hours and watched thunderstorms roll in from under the palapa on the deck!
It's walking distance to everywhere you want to go. We did a day tour of Tulum and Coba and were able to walk to a pickup point. The beach nearby is beautiful and clean. Seriously, we cannot say enough good things about this place so I'll just move onto the owner and the manager.
The owner is so easy to work with and helpful. She was great at corresponding with us and gave great recommendations for eating out in the area (Cueva del Chango for breakfast and Como Como for "an unforgettable dinner" -- and dinner at Como Como lived up to the hype!)
The manager was always quick to respond to email for any questions we had and booked our transportation to and from the airport. Which worked out great! Just be sure to remind your driver to call the manager when you're on your way so she can meet you there when you arrive (ours forgot and we waited just 15 mins for her to arrive; not a big deal but avoidable).
If we get back to Playa we will absolutely stay here again and are already telling all of our family and friends to stay here as well."
