“Our Only Regret...We should have stayed longer.”
Casa Caracol was the perfect place for our multi-generational family's vacation in Playa Del Carmen. Casa Caracol proved to be the ideal place to meet everybody's vacation needs and desires. Casa Caracol is located in a beautiful and shady area in Playa Del Carmen. The rooms in the home were spacious and easily accommodated families of 3 in two of them. The other 2 rooms were the perfect place for a couple and the single traveler in our group. The rooms were quiet and sound-proof making it easy to get the kids to bed with the rest of the family out in the living area, not far away. Casa Caracol was clean and we were very appreciative of the hard work that the housekeeping team put forth during the week to ensure we had clean towels and living space. The living space was comfortable and opens onto a comfortable patio near the swimming pool. Having a pool at the home was fantastic--- getting in and out of the water to cool off was easy and low-maintenance for kids and adults alike. For those that preferred to cool off in the ocean, Casa Caracol is located only a few steps away from the beautiful soft sand beach around the corner. During our stay, the beach was peaceful and relaxing. Casa Caracol was only a short walk into town for shops and restaurants. We found we didn't need to eat out, however---Casa Caracol has a spacious kitchen and dining room and a couple of trips to the store in town to stock up, provided our food for breakfast and lunch. Nancy again was a wonderful concierge when it came to dinner planning and recommended her housekeeper's mother---Constantina---to cook authentic Mexican meals for us at Casa Caracol. This proved to be one of our favorite parts of vacation. The meals were cost effective, delicious and authentic. Apart from helping us make dinner plans, Nancy was available prior to our vacation to make other suggestions to us and it was clear she hoped our vacation would be as fun as we also hoped it would be.
“So much to offer at Casa Caracol”
Our stay at Casa Caracol was perfect. Our group of eight (two families) had plenty of space at Casa Caracol. All of the bedrooms were spacious with very nice amenities and bathrooms. The common areas were modern and pleasant. The pool was just great for lounging around on hot days with a few beers and some music. And then, the beach was literally a 30 second walk from the house. We love the established Playacar neighborhood that Casa Caracol is in and the walking distance to town makes this vacation property a place for both relaxation or activity depending on your mood each day.
“Great family spring break at Casa Caracol”
Our family had a wonderful time at Casa Caracol and look forward to returning. The house was spotless and had everything we wanted and needed, from daily cleaning service to great pool and easy access to beach and downtown. Owners were very responsive to our requests prior to our arrival and offered great suggestions on excursions. We really appreciated being able to stock the kitchen prior to our arrival and arrange for a private chef one evening-- who cooked an excellent meal that pleased kids and adults.
“Awesome Family Vacation”
Big Beautiful, with helpful competent staff. Lovely spacious king bedrooms, 4 of them, and a great pool. Close to the beach and walk to town. Would do again anytime!!
“Beautiful and will continue to always be our first choice while”
Once again another great trip and stay at Casa Caracol! We're all missing it and can't wait to get back. Staying at Caracol is just too easy, we won't stay anywhere else! Groceries delivered, daily housekeeping and wonderful Julian make everything perfect. The owners are so pleasant to correspond with and go out of their way to ensure your vacation is a "vacation". Take a big group or small group, take your kids, you won't be disappointed. I love the reaction I hear when I open the front door and "newbies" see the interior for the first time. Its always a gasp and unanimous "wow"! Thank you again to: Ed, Ronnie, Bob and Nancy for another wonderful stay at Casa Caracol.
“Beautiful Casa Caracol”
We spent three wonderful weeks at Casa Caracol in January of 2013. The casa is everything and more we hoped for. Julian was there to help with anything and everything and quickly and his lovely wife kept the house sparkling and entertained us all with amazing towel art. Beautiful spacious living areas as well as lovely bedrooms! The large kitchen was welcoming as we enjoyed many nights cooking and relaxing at home. The first week we had family and friends visiting, second week just friends and the third week family with small children. The house was wonderful for all ages. We loved the outside area and spent many sunny days enjoying poolside and outdoor dinning. The beach is magnificent and so close it was easy to run back and forth to and fro the casa. This is our third year in Playa car and Casa Caracol is by far our favorite house! We cannot wait to return. We thank our hosts for taking such great care of this beautiful house!
“Relaxing and Fun”
Casa Caracol gave us great insight into renting a house. The one thing that really sold us on the house was that each room had a king bed with an attached bathroom which was important with an all-adult group. The air-conditioning worked extremely well; it did not take long to cool down a room. The kitchen had everything you would need to prepare your own meals, which we did. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer to dry wet swimsuits and towels, if needed. We chose to wash our own dishes and take out the trash just because we are used to that, but the maid service was quick and efficient. Beds were clean and made every day, towels were washed, floors were swept, and the added touch of finding a "towel critter" each day added to the experience. Julian, the property manager, checked in on us throughout the week to see what we needed. The pool area was cleaned almost daily and bottled water was aplenty. The perfect addition would be ice delivery. We discussed this as a future business venture! The location of the home was great. We walked everywhere and loved being able to walk along the beach to get to town. We debated having some food items stocked for us, but chose to shop at WalMart which added to our Mexico experience! It was nice not to have to pack up to go to the beach as it was just a block away; we would just take our towels and walk barefoot. Having the pool right outside our door was also a great option for relaxing and cooling off. One thing we would recommend would be a portable Bluetooth speaker system so that people could use their own devices to play their music (currently the house just has a CD player). We brought one ourselves and found it to be a hit as we could take it to the pool or bring it inside. However, one of our favorite things was the beach near the house; it was clean, did not have a lot of people, and the sand was soft on the feet.
“Great house - Amazing location”
You can't go wrong with Casa Caracol. The house is beautiful and the location - between the beach and town - is impossible to beat. We spent a week in the house with our two young kids (4 and 7) and had a blast. The kids loved the pool and the mild surf at the beach. With the fully-stocked kitchen, we cooked breakfast and lunch at the house and made the quick, 10-minute walk to town for dinners (great restaurant selections in Playa). We highly recommend this rental and plan to go back again next year!
This is a very comfy house with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms a very large master suite & kitchen. Gathering with groups is no problem. A very nice pool and only 20 yards from the pool to the beach. A short walk to the strip with fantastic shopping and night life. Be sure to check out the Mayan ruins at Tulum and the snorkeling at akumal just a short taxi ride to the south. Google Earth it and check out the photos.
“Great Christmas Stay for Intergenerational family”
December 2011 Grandparents, parents and grandchildren (11 in all, ages 71 to 4) all enjoyed our stay at Casa Caracol over Christmas, 2011. The ensuite bathrooms were wonderful - each family could be as neat or messy as they wished! The proximity to the beach was wonderful - we could come and go as we wished. Employing a cook to prepare most of our meals relieved the stress - yet we were close enough to town that we could have a meal out when we wished. Overall, a wonderful time was had by all! The owners were easy to work with and supplied all the information we asked for before and during our stay.
