Everything we wanted and more!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were fortunate enough to spend 2 weeks in your charming penthouse earlier this month (Feb) and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our stay.

From the moment we walked thru your gate we felt welcome as Victor was there with a warm smile and a handshake. We had done an all-inclusive trip to Playa before but decided to try a vacation rental this time. As this was our first time in a rental, we weren't exactly sure what to expect but it was everything we wanted and more. The penthouse is exactly as your description and photos show. The outdoor lounge is really as big as you think it is... great for having a drink after a day in the sun or BBQing some fresh seafood or just relaxing. The king-size be is extremely comfy, the place is clean and the air-conditioning works great.

Even though we shared stairs with Helene and Victor (who are both very gracious hosts) we felt that our privacy was always respected and we often forgot that there were people below us.

The penthouse is in a fabulous location, a short 5 min walk with get you to 5th Ave. or the grocery store and an 8-10 min walk will get you to the beach, Hwy 307 for a colectivo or a great restauraunt for drinks and/or dinner (El Fogon is our recommendation). Never did we not feel safe while walking, and, we walked at all hours of the day and night.

If you're looking for somewhere to relax, enjoy some time with your significant other and be close but not too close to the action all while getting great value, then this is the place for you. If you want to be right in the thick of things and to party like a rockstar, this is not the place for you.

We would love to make a return visit and have been telling anyone who will listen about our great find. We can't thank Helene and Victor enough for our 2 WONDERFUL weeks vacation!

We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Great penthouse close to everything in PDC

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very welcoming, just like home

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Petit nid douillet au milieu de Playa

  • 5 of 5

Appartement bien agencé avec cuisine fonctionnelle, 1 belle grande chambre avec vue sur terrasse/piscine. Un grand espace terrasse est aménagé en 3 parties, coin piscinette et solarium, coin repas, coin salon, avec des pergolas pour protéger de la chaleur. On se sent vraiment chez soi.

Un propriétaire vraiment très sympa et accueillant, qui parle français et qui nous a fait mieux connaître son pays.

Le linge de maison est fourni ainsi que ses serviettes pour aller à la plage. 2 climatiseurs : un dans la cuisine et un dans la chambre.

Je vous conseille ce penthouse qui a plus d'avantages qu'un hôtel pour le même prix : grande surface et grande terrasse, et surtout accueil sans pareil.

J'espère y revenir.

Encore merci à Victor pour tous ses services.

Victor is a great host. 2 chairs, umbrella, cooler ready fot the beach. A short short walk to all.

  • 5 of 5

Nice comfortable bed. AC to cool down your room before bed. Ceiling fans to keep it cool. Beach & bath towels provided. A close walk to many local resturants & markets. A bit further the other direction and you are at the main Boulevard with all of the crazy touristic stuff amd nightlife you may want. The beach is just one block further. Many activities, lots of public beach access. Victor will give you tips - don't worry. Great for a couple. Definitely NOT for the all inclusive type. The neighborhood is charming and away from the hustle. We were not interested in listening to loud Americans - Germans - English etc. If you are after the same, look no further. Enjoy!
