                                                                Great penthouse to stay at perfect for a couple..

                                                                Garry M.windsor ontario Canada

                                                                Would like to say a great big thank you to Victor. He helped make our stay in Playa Del Carmen a fantastic one. This is a nice penthouse to stay at everything that you need for your stay. It's in a great gated community the security guards were very friendly. Its just a short walk to the grocery stores where you can buy everything you need for your stay. There are some great restaurants very close by that are worth checking out, Papa Charly, Chiltepin. A nice walk to 5th Avenue where there is all your shops and stores. Be careful everyone wants to sell you there stuff. Barter with them makes it fun if your not happy walk on. They will also say that they served you drinks at the resort last night but you know better. great restaurants but a lot more money.. The place is yours to explore and have fun . We never felt worried walking around town. And enjoy the beautiful beaches... Thanks again Victor was great staying at your place for 2 weeks will do it again Garry & Julie

                                                                Relaxing stay in well equipped penthouse in a very convenient location

                                                                Michelle T.

                                                                The penthouse is a convenient location in a quiet gated area within walking distance to beach, shops & resturants. The condo is well equipped with everything you need and has an outstanding large terrace with a small pool. Although the beach was an easy walk, we spent a lot of time lounging on the terrace. The kitchen was equipped well with stove, fridge, cooking utensils, etc. We usually made breakfast & enjoyed it on the table on the terrace. There is a convenience store about a block a way & a large supermarket about 2 blocks away for food & drink needs. Recommend getting a roast chicken in the supermarket deli along with some tortillas & fixings & enjoy making your own & enjoying on privacy of terrace. There are also several great small resturants close by, away from busy 5th avenue. There is also a great blender perfect for margaritas! Bed was comfortable, great wifi, good shower, cable worked well & everything was very clean. Air con worked well, but wasn't needed much as the ceiling fans cooled enough. Beach chairs, towels, etc are provided if you want to leave the sanctuary of the terrace & hit the beach. Victor was very welcoming & available for any questions. We really look forward to our next stay there!

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thank you very much, Michelle and David, for your kind words. You are welcome anytime!!!

                                                                Happy holidays!!!


                                                                Our romantic getaway

                                                                Ron H.

                                                                The penthouse was fantastic and very reasonable, it had everything needed for our romantic getaway and the host Victor was the best. He was there to meet us and help with any questions that we might have. Everything for us was within walking distance from great places to eat ,5th ave, the beach, and shopping all within a few short blocks. We celebrated our Anniversary and my Wife,s birthday during our stay and it was wonderful. After a long day we were able to come back to the penthouse sit in the pool with a glass of Mexican wine and relax and enjoy the spectacular sunset and evening. we loved it so much that we asked Victor if we could rent it again in February but to our disappointment it was already booked. You can be sure that on our next getaway we will be staying at the Penthouse if it is available. All in all it was a getaway that we will always remember as one of the best. I would personally like to thank Victor for his hospitality and attention to every detail that his guests might encounter. Thanks again Victor for our ROMANTIC GETAWAY it was wonderful.

                                                                Ron & Elaine

                                                                Great penthouse close to everything in PDC

                                                                Luis S.

                                                                We spent a wonderful week at Casa de Luz.

                                                                It was perfect for us, located in a quiet gated community it offered everything we needed for a relaxing yet active vacation. Victor was there for us every time we need an advise or suggestion, but our privacy was never compromised. He provided lots of information just in case one didn't do its homework before visiting PDC.

                                                                The penthouse is well equipped with pretty much everything a couple would need. The kitchen was good although we didn't cook at all.

                                                                The bed is very comfy, the outdoor areas are really nice, sitting under the trellis enjoying a cool dip at the small pool after a day at the beach. The a/c units work great but we mostly used the ceiling fans during our stay.

                                                                There is a supermarket (Sorianas) just a block and a half away. The neighborhood is very safe, we walked at all times and we never felt uneasy. There is a great breakfast place just a few blocks away , "La cueva del chango" and many restaurants too.

                                                                Overall we really enjoyed Casa de Luz and we would recommend it to anyone who would like to be close to everything in PDC but not in the midst of all the noise of downtown.

                                                                Thank you so much Victor for allowing us to enjoy our vacation in your beautiful penthouse.

                                                                It was very nice. Vitor was very friendly and helpful with any questions I had. Was two blocks from 5th avenue

                                                                Very welcoming, just like home

                                                                Very clean and spacious for 2. Quiet living in a gated neighborhood. Close to grocery stores and walking distance to the beach and 5th avenue. Or you can get a taxi right outside the gate. Victor, the owner, was very nice. Always ready to help or answer questions.

                                                                And your own private pool.... great for cooling off and relaxing after an outing.

                                                                If you're looking for the local experience, we recommend staying here. Loved it!!
