  • Paradise!

    "We just returned from 2 weeks at Casa Koolba and are already dreaming of the next time we'll be able to go. The house is well maintained and has comfortable seating on the deck that overlooks the most beautiful stretch of beach I've ever seen. We spent quite a bit of time on the beach lounges and in the hammocks which is well shaded if you don't want to be in the direct sun all day. By the way the wifi does reach the beach. We brought our Bose speaker and it worked great. We kayaked ( there is one) or snorkeled (there are several masks, snorkels and fins) every day and saw many beautiful fish and rays. We visited Chamicos, just at the end of the bay, several times while we were there to enjoy the ceviche, delicious! The property manager, Maricarmen, came by and we had a wonderful visit. She's very personable and wanted to make sure that we were well taken care of. She's a local so she can give you tips on restaurants, excursions, etc.. We were well taken care of by Manuel and his wife Marta. Really sweet people and hard workers. Manuel is a wonderful chef also! I would highly recommend the Gouda stuffed, bacon wrapped shrimp. We hope to return for a 3rd visit soon!"

  • Still the best property on Isla Mujeres

    "This was our seventh year at the house. We only get two weeks in March to be there and the time flies so fast. It's home to us now. Perfectly comfortable and happy. We so enjoy the walking trail to Punta Sur and traveled it almost every day. What views! In fact we walk many places at that end of the island. There are many fine restaurants in Colonia La Gloria and the area. Don't miss Limon, Mango Café, Playa Lancheros, Capitan Dulche, Caribbean Brisas, La Bruja and so many others. We enjoy the neighborhood and all the local people there. We've made so many local friends on Isla and enjoy our yearly visits with them. The house has a such a feeling of quiet and isolation even though the area is busy with tourist traffic on the main road. Inside the courtyard and outside on the patio, you can't even hear anything but the ocean and the birds. The house is very clean and comfortable with all the conveniences you'll need. If you're nature lovers and enjoy peace and quiet, this is the place. We've already booked for 2017."

  • Very nice condo !!

    "This was our first time to rent a condo in Playa, we generally rent a house and though condo living is not for me, this Condo was nice and very clean !! The beds are hard as boards but I still slept. The route to the beach is a hike including three flights of stairs and long passageways so consider that if you have any mobility issues. They also try to get you to wear these cheap plastic bracelets for the property use. I tied them to the house key and that seemed to satisfy them. I noticed some had the rubber bracelet and some no bracelet at all. Found that odd. Anyway, the Condi is nice !!"

  • A nice condo in Playa

    "The unit is accurately described in the listing, and the owner and local manager were responsive to a few very minor issues that came up. The owner’s method of receiving payments directly by Visa is trustworthy. The kitchen is well equipped, the AC was very good, the beds are very comfortable, TV was fine and the wireless internet was the best I’ve encountered in Mexico and about as good as you can hope for there. The location is excellent: a 10-15 min. walk to the beach and 5 min. walk to the many restaurants on 5th Ave, however the best and cheapest were all a block or two off 5th. The nice balcony off the dining area that overlooks the pool was great for morning coffee, but can be a bit uncomfortable when there are people sitting on the balcony in front of it. However the real gem of the unit is the large and completely private rooftop terrace. There are a couple of good lounge chairs, and there is both sun and shade on it virtually all day. The tub on it is a hydro-tub, i.e. a large 1-person bathtub with jets. The pool area and grounds are very clean and well maintained. The pool is quite large and there are 10 lounge chairs around it. We were almost always able to get lounge chairs although a few times it was the last 1 or 2, however we were there in high season when likely all units were occupied. A few more chairs would help but, if worse comes to worst you can always have a dip in the pool and then head up to the private rooftop terrace. Entry requires climbing 2 flights of stairs which might be a challenge for people with mobility issues. The building was very quite, with most of the units occupied by retired couples. There is a large balcony off one bedroom and a small one off the other, however they both look out onto the street and there is little reason to ever use them. This brings up the only real problem with the unit: there is a major construction project going on across the street starting at 7AM. While the noise didn’t bother us too much (mainly because, unbelievably, they were using almost no power equipment) there were a few short very noisy periods. Unfortunately, there is nothing the owner or anyone else can do about this, so check with him on this if you’re sensitive to construction noise. Hopefully this will end in several months. Our electricity charge was US$30/wk, though we used very little AC. My only other suggestion: the small sofa in the living room is in great need of replacement."
