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.
