Tropical elegance and comfort
This year was our family’s 4th year at this property. For my family of 5 adults and 3 children it’s the perfect set up with the bedrooms. The grandchildren have their own beds in a 1st floor bedroom as well as their own bath. The house manager, pool man and housekeeper are all very pleasant and accommodating as well. This year Mother Nature destroyed the beach halfway into our vacation and we did use the pool a lot more then previous years. The walk to 5th Ave for dining and shopping is easy and safe. Owners Nancy & Ed are very welcoming and it’s a pleasure renting from them. We hope to do a fifth year with our family!
Great Location, beautiful place
We celebrated a 60th birthday with 9 people. The house was perfect fit for our needs. Clean, modern, and had everything you could need. The only downfall for us was the pool area is shaded and small, we couldn't lay out at the pool. The beach had a large amount of seaweed and it was smelly. So we went to different beach clubs to get our sun ! All and all this is a fantastic place and great people who rented it, very helpful and gave us contacts to for everything while we were there.
Thanks Nancy :)
We just stayed a week at Casa Caracol and had a fabulous time! The house is very conveniently located. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The beach is super close but we only walked it a few times and hung around the pool most of the time. The beds are extremely comfortable and the house is well maintained. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you could need. The house manager and the owners were always available if we had questions or needed anything. It was a wonderful time for all 9 of us!
Warm escape for family and friends
4 couples/8 adults enjoyed four bedrooms and four baths, never feeling compromised for privacy. Great kitchen and dining area. Good tele-communications with pool area. Daily home cleaning and pool maintainence a plus. Safety was not a factor as unobtrusive security was prolific. The close beach proximity, multiple archeological sites and easy access to the “old town” activities make this venue a terrific opportunity to relax, escape, and enjoy.
Large, clean, well serviced, well stocked home in safe community.
Our family of 5 had a wonderful time at Casa Caracol. The house itself is stocked with everything you need including books and beach chairs. The kitchen includes everything you want and more. The community is safe and within walking distance the great shops, restaurants, etc. The beach is 50 metres away (turn right to find the best spots!) We were a little concerned when we smelt the seaweed on our first day but it was only bad that one day. At that time of year (July) it was present within 20 metres of the shore but wasn't an issue for swimming. Nancy and Veronica were fabulous with their suggestions and we hired drivers through their recommendations for several day trips. I recommend the day out to Chichen Itza and the ferry to Cosemul for snorkeling and beach club. The cenotes were a highlight also. We had Constantina cook up a wonderful Mexican feast for us one night (including the best margaritas and guacamole!) and we had enough left over for several meals after. We did have an issue with the airconditioner upstairs but within 2 hours of reporting it, Nancy and Veronica had organised a serviceman and it was fixed! We really couldn't have been in better hands and were so thankful we found Casa Caracol for our Mexican adventure!
Love this place. Will be back soon
House was great!
Casa Caracol is located 800 meters south of the main square and 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen. Casa Caracol is in the gated community of Playacar Phase One and only 50 steps from a beautiful white sand beach. Playa del Carmen is located about 30 miles south of the Cancun Airport. The town has many wonderful restaurants. The warm Caribbean water is beautiful and the Playa del Carmen white sand beaches are second to none. The beaches are uninterrupted for miles north and south of town. The beaches are child friendly and European sunbathing friendly. 5th Avenue is a pedestrian mall and evening dining and strolls along 5th Avenue makes for great people watching. Many Mayan ruins day tours are available to Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba. The world’s second largest barrier reef is located just off the coast. Snorkeling and Scuba are easily accessible. Many family oriented amusement parks with zip-lines, cenotes and swimming with dolphins are located within minutes of Playa del Carmen. Sailing, wake boarding, kite boarding, wave runners and other water sport activities are available within a 10 min walk (800 meters) of Casa Caracol.
