“Everything you need for a great Playa vacation.”
Reviewed 29 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We rented Casa Carocal for a family vacation. There were 8 adults and 1 toddler and the house had more than enough room for all of us. The house is very comfortable and well-maintained. The 4 bedrooms all have king beds and en-suite baths, which is hard to find anywhere in a vacation rental. The first floor rooms are roughly equal and the master, on the second floor, is larger with a balcony and bigger bathroom. The living room/dining room has enough room for the family to hang-out and the kitchen was well equipped. The swimming pool is one of the biggest we saw during our walks around Playacar where many of the houses seem to only have plunge pools. The proximity to the beach (50 steps) and town (5-10 min. walk) is a definite plus. Julian and Adriana, who take care of the house, are very helpful and responsive caretakers. We hired Constantina to cook authentic Mexican dinners on two nights, which was a real treat and highly recommended. While we were at the house, the washing machine broke and it was replaced with a brand new machine within hours. A true sign of the owner's commitment to ensuring nothing ruined our trip. We would definitely consider returning to Casa Carocal for another Playa vacation.

“There's no place like home”
Reviewed 2 February 2012 for a stay in May 2011

This place was like home to us. From the moment we arrived at the airport, we knew that we were truly on vacation. The driver made sure that we had nothing to worry about as he drove us to our destination and was so friendly that we knew this would be the best vacation ever. As soon as we got to the casa, we were welcomed by the caretaker, Julian, who immediately helped us get settled in. The view was beautiful and the house was so conveniently located to the beach and a short walk into town that we felt complete freedom to relax and soak up the Mexico sun. The owners of the house had the best recommendation, from restaurants to tourist destinations, that even when we veered from those recommendations, we realized that our pick wasn't half as good as theirs. We spent our days relaxing on the soft, white beaches and exploring cenotes and local flavors, even skidiving!!! And when we got home, everything about the casa made us feel welcome, from the towel animals left on our bed to the fresh linen left in our bathroom. The best recommendation was Susan, the caterer that came in and cooked us a five-star birthday dinner, complete with fresh fish and appetizers on the balcony overlooking the Carribean Sea. We will be back!!!
