“wonderful vacation home”

Reviewed 15 Jun 2010

We had a great time in Playa, and Paulines house was beautiful. The rooftop terrace is the best,during the day to sunbathe and at night to relax in the cool breeze. Worth the extra money to get the air conditioner, really nice to come home after a day in the sun to a cool house. The house was in a great location; quiet and secluded,yet just a short walk to all points of interest.

Casa Palmas-What can I say...From the point of view of a 23 year
old "honeeeemooooners" as we are called down in Playa Del Carmen, it
was paradise. The house situated about 250m from the beach is a
beautiful open concept home with lots of natural light.

This is an amazing house and city. My husband and I rented the
upstairs quarters for a week and could have stayed a month. We both
decided that we will never vacation in a hotel room again! The view
from the top is spectacular. You are one block from the beach.

My words could not due the place justice. It's a shame that the
scale only goes up to 10, because this place is off the chart in
every category. My wife and I have been down many times & have now
found our favorite spot to stay. Luxurious convenience that is a

WOW! I completely agree with the other reviews posted here...You
can't beat this as a vacation spot or find a better person to rent
from! Pauline was in constant contact with us from start to finish
and her home is absolutely gorgeous as is the neighborhood it sits
in. I can definitely recommend the upper stories (where we stayed).

Casa Palmas villas exceeded my expectations. The Villa was gorgeous, well kept, and clean. We had everything we needed to feel at home on our Mexican vacation. The people were very friendly and helpful.

The place was wonderful. From cleaning services to fresh water, everything you could think of needing was included. My friends and I had such a wonderful time, that we are already planning our next trip back. It's so close to the beach and all the shops and eateries that make Playa so special. Pauline was amazing through out the whole process. She gave us tips about cabs, groceries, and even things we would not have thought about. We loved it and would reccomend it to anyone considering traveling to Playa.

Thanks so much to Pauline for providing my friends and family a wonderful place to relax and soak up the sun during Spring Break. Whether you are looking for a place to relax, sun, snorkel or shop...CasaPalmas is within walking distance to all of those things! It was just a short 5 minute walk into the 5th Ave. of Playa, which offered a variety of restaurants and shops. The beach was also only 3 min. away...perfect! Casa Palmas was very luxurious and comfortable. We felt very safe and enjoyed our stay very much..looking forward to planning our next vacation to Playa and of course Casa Palmas!

This was our second time renting this beautiful casa in Playacar. Our arrival coincided with Pauline and Alfredo's departure so we had the pleasure of finally meeting them. This time it was a family vacation with our daughters, sons-in-law and grandkids. Everyone loved this gorgeous, spacious casa with all the comforts of home. It is only a few blocks to one of many beaches and a pleasant 10 minute walk to town, where you can enjoy a variety of restaurants, shopping and nitelife along Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue). We spent most of our days at the beach and it was great to come back to a spotless house thanks to the maid, Anna. If we had any problems at all, Sergio the house manager, was only a call away, and responded immediately. Sergio organized transport for our group to Xel-Ha and we were picked up and dropped off at our door after a spectacular day at the eco park. Grocery shopping was only a short cab ride to the Walmart. One of our favorite things to do was enjoy the rooftop palapa where you have wonderful views of the ocean and at night you can see the lights of Cozumel. The kids enjoyed the pool in the front of the house and loved using the outdoor shower after returning from the beach. We usually made brunch and then headed to the beach and in the evening we walked into town to dine at one of the various restaurants. A few of our favorites were, Jaguar's, Karen's and Tropical. Everyone had such a great time, that once we got back after our holiday, we phoned Pauline and booked for Christmas 2009. This time we plan to take advantage of booking a chef to cook for us at the house. It will be a unique experience to spend Christmas without snow, but I don't think anyone is complaining. We have recommended this casa to all of our friends and relatives as the location is truly paradise and a vacation not to be missed.

One never knows what to expect when traveling thousands of miles to spend a holiday in a place where you have never been and in a house that you have never seen other than pictures on the internet (and we know how pictures online can be deceiving). Well, to say that our expectations were exceeded would be an understatement. As both our kids said within moments of dropping their bags in their rooms, "it feels like home." From the amazing deck on the fourth floor with its inviting hammock and sleep inducing breezes, to the open floor plan, the house is beautiful and easy to make your own immediately upon arriving. The house has everything you need (including beach chairs and umbrellas) and is close to the beach, interesting shops and wonderful restaurants on 5th Avenue. The home was meticulously cleaned for us during our stay and, at our request, our caretaker's mother made us the most amazing dinner of our choice. Pauline, the owner, was so warm and caring, that she treated us as if we actually were her family ensuring that all our needs were met before and during our stay. If Playa del Carmen is your location of choice, Casa Palmas is the place you must stay. Jon
