What Past Guests Are Saying
Lake Zurich, IL
Beautiful house; great location
I stayed here with seven other women and we had an amazing time. The house is beautifully decorated and sleeps eight comfortably. There are four bathrooms with four showers which was perfect for eight women trying to get ready.
The house is located in a gated, quiet subdivision. The location is great because you can easily walk into town where there are hundreds of restaurants, bars, and stores. We didn't even need a rental car because we could walk to everything.
The kitchen was well furnished, with plenty of dishes and glassware. There were also plenty of chairs and beach towels
I would definitely recommend this house for a group or a couple of families
The House with Everything!
Bric management personnel can make anything happen that you want during your vacation. The side excursions that we took (ATV riding, horseback riding, snorkeling) were top notch. The House is beautiful, it's more like your own home. All the amenities are here. Walk to town for dinner and shopping. Plenty of things to do right at your finger tips.
Dream house on a dream beach
Casa Vista simply took our breath away when we arrived. It is located in a beautiful, gated community only a block away from one of the most pristine beaches we have ever visited. The house resembles a small mansion, with quality amenities and super attentive management company staff. Our family enjoyed waking up every morning for strolls along the beach and easy access (15 min. walk) to central Playa's restaurants. The folks at Bric stocked the fridge for us, as requested, and arranged great local tours that made the trip memorable. The kids have already told us they wwant to go back again.
Awesome Family vacation
Casa Vista is an awesome place to stay. It is the kind of dream home you would imagine for your retirement.
Our two boys (ages 7 and 9) loved it! Pool in the back yard and unobstructed view of the ocean. The beach is about 100 feet away.
The house was a dream...slept 2 families of 4 comfortably, with lots of left over room. The great room has a bigscreen TV with satelite, and the sliding glass doors allow the evening breeze in. My wife loved the modern kitchen, and despite the fantastic restaurants available, we managed to eat at "home" at least one night that week.
Casa Vista's location enables you to walk to most places including the shops and restaurants off 5th ave in Playa del Carmen. Safety was never an issue, with the neighborhood being gated, and constant foot traffic. We parked the car the entire week, except to go to the Mayan ruins (some also within sight of Casa Vista) or Sams Club for supplies.
The fishing was outstanding!! My sons and I walked made the charter less than 2 blocks from Casa Vista, and walked to meet the boat the next morning.
The staff was very helpful. We got good information on check-in, and received prompt response when we had a question mid-week.
Easy to reach from Cancun. Flew in, rented a car and arrived in 45 minutes. We made about 3 turns from the hotel (nothing tricky) and were on the divided highway leading to Playa del Carmen. They drive on the correct side of the road, so no worries.
I recommended Casa Vista to all the soccer parents and my co-workers when I got home!
We are definitely going back. I cannot wait to put my flip flops on, kick back under the cabana with a cervesa. Just logged onto the webcam for the beach...
Playa del Carmen
Everything was fine, except the Hot Tub was not working. This was a great disappointment to all of the guests.

Perfect Family Vacation
Vacation experience is all about understanding what your priorities are and then setting and measuring expectations against the 'real' experience. Our goal was to have a relaxing family vacation (Mom, Dad, 3 girls ages 3,5 and 7) in a place we felt safe, clean, accessible that allowed for us to 'do stuff' or not do stuff at our own pace. Also important was for us to experience local foods and not feel like we were in a 'tourist' spot. Expectations I'd say were pretty high and priorities reasonable..The result was near perfect. I'd dare say the best family vacation yet. The home we stayed in was gorgous and HUGE. It has a small pool but we never used it considering the ocean is about 100 yards away (my point is that why use a pool when you're on the Mayan Riviera!) Marble throughout, VERY clean and modern. Gated community...NO safety concerns whatsoever...none. Playa is a safe place anyway but its nice to know you are in a gated place regardless. Walking distance to downtown Playa (every nite!) and driving to daily excursions like swimming with the Dolphins, the Jungle Place to see monkeys (best ever, see my review on trip advisor). Fantastic and WAY inexpensive food and drink... Modern grocery store right down the street to cook at home if you wish... Oh did I mention 2 huge flat screen TVs and a separate office with wireless highspeed internet to do some work while the family watches a movie? Only complaint was not with the home at all but with Hertz Rental car at the airport..In a word..they sucked. We waited nearly 3 hours for our car..horrible experience. Use Avis or others. Our ultimate measure of a quality vacation is asking ourselves if we'd go back..the answer is an unequivocal YES!!(We've only said that once before) You won't regret this experience.
OUTSTANDING vacation spot!
We highly recommend Casa Vista in Playa Del Carmen. The house is large
and spacious. It is beautifully furnished and decorated with outstanding
amenities and a wonderful view of the ocean and beach. The neighborhood
is very upscale and quiet, and is a very short walk into the town and a short
drive to the highway. There are many great restaurants within walking
The owners provided a really great guide to restaurants, local activities and
points of interest, many of which we would not have found on our own. Be
sure to check out the Mayan Adventure from Alltournative - a really fun
And, the service from BRIC Vacation Rentals was also outstanding. The staff
was very helpful and accomodating and went out of their way to make our
We had a "top 10" vacation at Casa Vista, and definitely intend to go back to
this property in the future. If you are looking for a vacation that you can
have a mix of quiet, relaxing time, excellent restaurants, beautiful beaches
and a great choice of fun activities while enjoying a gorgeous house, this is
Thanksgiving in Playa
We had a wonderful time in sunny Playa Thanksgiving week. We really enjoyed the large house which was modern, clean and comfortable. Customer service was great and everything was as described. We didn't use the rooftop hottub but I'm sure they would have set it up for us if we called our concierge. Our maid came every other day and washed our towels, etc and cleaned the entire house. I strongly recommend this house that is ideally located just steps from the beach.
Beautiful house in the middle of it all
This home was truly a great find. It was every bit as lovely as the photos
showed and even more. Very spacious and elegant, and amazingly located
right across the street from the beach. Only 10 minute walk to 5th avenue
where all the action occurs. Plenty of restaurants, bars and shopping right
around the corner as well as visitor's centers where you can exchange cash or
sign up for tours. There is an amazing spa right next to train station that is
only a 15 minute walk from the house too. Only complaint would be that a
pipe broke on our last day and we were without water, but BRIC was there
immediately with keys to another house so we could shower and freshen up
before getting on the plane. BRIC themselves were extremely accommodating
and responded to all of our questions and concerns right away. Cleaning lady
was very nice and did an AMAZING job every other day. Our trip was great and
we owe a lot of that to this house and the people at BRIC so thank you!

BRIC Rental in Playa at Casa Vista
My experience arranging the stay was fine for the most part. Most of my
emails/calls were answered promptly.
Where things really fell apart were with the concierge we were assigned. He
couldn't answer many of the questions and when we arranged to have
groceries at the house when we arrived (a service they offer).. they were not
there.. and no one had an explanation of why.. even though we had
confirmed only days before. Additionally the air conditioning was not
turned on- and if you've ever been to Playa in the summer, you know how
bad the humidity is. The house was huge so it took a good 12 hours to cool
it. I'm all for conserving energy, I just think that if they know guests are
arriving at a certain time, they could turn it on just a few hours prior to
arrival so it's at least bearable. Additionally there was no one there to walk
us through the house when we arrived.. so we had to figure out the air
remotes among other things on our own. We had to call 2-3 times before
the guy showed up. It all just seemed very unorganized and unprofessional
when we got there.
That all said.. the house itself was fantastic, and after the initial
disappointments we had a great week. We were assigned a new concierge
who was great and most attentive. Our airport driver was fantastic and the
taxi driver you can hire directly through BRIC was phenomenal.. always
arrived at least 15 min early and waited patiently until we were ready.
Response from BRIC Vacation Rentals - Playa del Carmen Rentals - 09/19/2009
Thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay with us at Casa Vista. We sincerely apologize for the mixup with our concierge staff. There is simply no excuse for your groceries not being there nor the Air Conditioning not being turned on.
We have brought your situation to our staff meeting to utilize as a learning tool to assure that these problems never occur again either at Casa Vista nor anywhere else.
We strive to make vacation rental perfect for our clients, however sometimes inexcusable events happen and unfortunately you were the recipient of our mistake and for that we apologize.
We do appreciate you taking the time to let us know and please be assured that we have remedied the issues with a new concierge protocol. Thank you again and we do hope that we have the pleasure of your company again in the future.
One of my best vacations
7 of us stayed at casa vista and it was a fantastic,
Great House...Beach...not so nice
The house is beautiful and ideally located. We walked to town several times, even though we had a vehicle. I had a couple of issues with the house, such as...we couldn't get the oven to light (gas) and the rooftop jacuzzi had a lock on it. Also, there were not any blankets or pillows for the pull out sofa. However, the staff at Bric did come and fix the oven, unlock the jacuzzi and bought blankets for the pull out. However, it was halfway through our vacation. The bathrooms were clean and the house is generally well kept. Be careful in the laundry room, as you have to duck under a ceiling to load clothes into the washer and dryer..several of us had bumps on our heads that week. When we first got there, the pool was low on water..but we filled it up ourselves. Construction was going on..so we were awakened at 7a.m. daily. Supposedly, construction should be over. The sand on the beach is beautiful..however, the beach in front of the house is very rocky and swimming is not an option. You have to walk a ways to be able to even wade into the water. This was very disappointing for me b/c I had four children with us. All in all, I would say if the water was swimable, it would be the perfect vacation spot. I was pleased with the BRIC staff and would rent from them again....just not sure it would be this house, and that is a shame b/c the house really is beautiful.
