Wonderful house, perfect for families!
We are an extended family of eight (six adults and two small children) who spent five days at Casa Kristyna and absolutely loved it! The house is open and airy, and very tastefully decorated. There is a large, fully appointed kitchen - we did a fair amount of cooking at home. The pool is larger than it appears in the photos, with both a deep and shallow end, which was perfect for the kids - they never wanted to leave the pool! The house is in a gated, golf course community so it’s quiet and feels very safe. There are several restaurants (including an adorable coffee shop) within easy walking distance, and the beach and southern end of 5th Avenue is a short (10-15 minute) walk away. We found this house and location to be perfect for a family, as we were able to spend lots of time hanging out there - cooking at home, playing in the pool during the day, and playing board games or watching movies at night. It might be a little too far from the “action” for those looking to enjoy the party scene, but it is ideal for families or groups who want to stay in a quiet area. Tom (the owner) and Ruben (the property manager) were very responsive in providing information and answering our questions. Overall, the house exceeded our expectations and we had a great stay! Highly recommend!
Charming, Clean, Great Location Rental!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 12 day stay at this property! From the moment you enter, you are wowed with all the Mexican art that Tom and Karen have collected and grace every room of the house.
The pictures are really good representation of the house and the golf course location is awesome!
You are a close walk to the amazing beach, the action of town as well as a quick ride (or walk) in the other direction to get groceries. It is amazing how quiet the property is considering proximity to town.
We love to cook and appreciated the wonderful kitchen as well as Tom accommodating our request for making a BBQ available to use. The kitchen is well appointed for cooking and has lots of glasses and dishes for both poolside (plastic) and indoor dining. We picked up a few extra items to augment our culinary needs but like I said we like to cook! We found that the dishwasher worked best on the quick rinse cycle even to do full loads of dishes.
We actually ate out 2 nights and enjoyed Casa Sophia (great food and great value) as well as the Greek Estia next door (note cash only).
The kitchen/dining/living room area is a great space as it is lovely, open, with lots of seating both at counter bar as well as the dining room table. We really only used the living room to watch the Superbowl (in Spanish :)) or for reading as we were always congregating around the cocktail and food prep counter. There are multiple fans to provide air movement if you are cooking and hanging out.
When you first walk into town on 10th (by the roundabout Playacar gate) there is a spa called Kristina and either Lupita or Oscar are the best massage therapists. If you show Tom's Playacar ownership card you can get a great deal.
We met both Ruben (upon arrival and to look after a sink issue) and Terri (to deliver water with their son) and they are lovely, accommodating and a wealth of information if you have any questions.
They recently added bicycles for use at the property and we loved that feature and used them daily! Either for just a ride to tour through the development, our daily ice replen jaunts to Oxxo, or with knapsacks to pick up groceries at Chedrai or Sam's Club.
Note that the pool takes up the full back yard and lots of toys and floaties to use - a family with a group of kids would be in heaven! We spent our days at the beach (beach chairs provided) and used the pool for morning and evening dips.
A great property to rent!
My wife and I, along with 3 other couples, spent a week at Casa De Kristina during New Years.
The home was even better than pictured. The living room, dinning room and Kitchen all blend together into one great space for large groups to relax and hang out. Besides the fabulous master suite, the three other bedroom are all lovely. The furniture and finishes at the house are all first rate. We stayed during the winter, so the pool was a bit chilly, but in the summer the pool would be an amazing relief and luxury.
As for location, the house is just 10 minute walk to a low key beautiful beach. And, just a 15 minute walk to the hustle and bustle of 5th Ave. Very short drive to huge grocery stores and anything else you might need.
Tom, Terri, and Ruben care deeply about their guest. They took great care of us and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay at Casa De Kristina.
Even with 8 people in the house, everyone had a fantastic time and can't wait to come back.
We loved the pool and open living. Lots of space for the family as well. Make sure you find the path to the beach across from the tennis courts. It will save you 5-10 minutes on your walk to the fun!
We just got back from vacation from this wonderful and beautiful home! It is within walking distance to 5th ave. and a quick walk via a community path to the beach. It is conveniently located close to the Reef Hotel which comes in handy should you want to take advantage of using their beaches and pools for a day.catch a taxi, or get any other local information! The home has everything you need and then some for an extended stay and both the management person (Ruben)and owners were more than accommodating in answering questions and meeting our needs. The home is exactly as described and I would highly recommend it to anyone! There is a beautiful pool out the back door perfect for ending every day! The gourmet kitchen makes cooking a breeze! Take a taxi to Chedraui grocery store for all of your food and beverage needs for the week and you will be set! Thanks to Tom for sharing your beautiful home and Ruben and his wife for attending to our every need!
