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).

Hi Pauline. I just thought I�d send you a quick note to tell you we

had a wonderful time in Playa

Del Carmen. We had a little difficulty getting our ride when we

first arrived but everything went

smoothly after that. You have a beautiful house in a beautiful

area. We particularly enjoyed the

atmosphere and view from the roof. We were able to do many things

while we were there, e.g. tour of

Tulum, snorkeling, and had dinner cooked for us by Sergio�s

parents. And we found many fine

restaurants along 5th Avenue, We will be sure to tell our friends

about your place. Thanks again

for all your help in making this a great vacation.

This was the 2nd time we rented this house. The first being in 2005

with just 4 members of our family. This vacation was to mark a

special occassion for our whole family (13 of us), and it was an

added bonus to finally meet Pauline in person after so many years.

Pauline and her staff always go above and beyond what is expected,

and because of that it makes for a more relaxing, comfortable

vacation for all. For this past vacation (December 2008) this house

was occupied by members of the family that had never been to Mexico

before. They felt very comfortable and right at home, and in the

words of the kids 'this place is a PALACE!' The adults also highly

recommend this as a vacation home not to be missed.

We've been told that everyone wished they had spent a bit more time

on the rooftop patio, but there's always next time which we're

already starting to plan for in 2009. They all loved it THAT much. If

you are looking for a vacation in paradise look no further than Casa

Palmas De Baja Mar.

Thank you again Pauline & Staff!

We have been traveling all over the Caribbean and Central America during the month of February for the past 10 years. This is the first time that we are returning to the same place. Playa Del Carmen is an vacation paradise that has no equal. Pauline's vacation villa is absolutely perfect in every way. The accommodations are luxurious. Maria provides maid service 3 times a week and Sergio is the the nbr. one go to concierge on the planet. He visits the house daily to see if one as any requirement such as tours, house hold needs, recommendations to various venues, restaurants, entertainment etc. Sergio is a wealth of knowledge and one of the most pleasant personalities we have ever encountered. The house is a 5 min. walk to a fabulous beach that stretches for miles in each direction. The ocean varies from a rich coral to a deep blue color. If one is into fishing as we were, a pango will pick you up right at the beach by the house. As far as restaurants and entertainment goes, 5th avenue , which is the heart of Playa is a short walk from the house. 5th avenue stretches for about 60 blocks and is packed with a few hundred restaurants, bars and shops. I would imagine that if one tried to visit every restaurant available, it would take over a year to do so. If you leave 5th ave and head west, the experience is more subdued but equally rewarding. West of 5th ave you have the opportunity to truly mingle with the locals and enjoy their restaurants. The people of the Yucatan are absolutely the most pleasant and accommodating personalities one could imagine. Every cabbie, bus drive, waiter, bar tender , store clerk etc was beyond the norm of what one could hope for. Safety was never a concern (and my group is always concerned about the safety of a foreign environment). One does not need a car here. The taxi service is outstanding and quite reasonable and the bus service is fantastic and cheap. The buses are quite luxurious with plush seating, air conditioning and movies. A 45 minute ride to Cancun is approximately $5.00 U.S. or 70 pesos. If you were thinking of going to Florida, don't. In Playa the weather by day is always 80 to 85 degrees with a light southerly wind and around 70 to 75 degrees at night. As is said in the beginning--- We have found our paradise!!!!

Beautiful vacation house

Our stay was fantastic. We were two couples with 3 children. Did not feel crowded. The house was beautiful, comfortable and very clean. The balconies were spacious. The service was very attentive to our needs. Anything we required, we received immediately. The area was very safe. The beach was perfect. It is just about 1 minute walk to the beach. With the beach so near, we did not use the pool. The start of 5th avenue is just about a 5 minute walk away. I would definitely go back or recommend this place.

We decided to skip presents and take a family trip with our in-laws and this house and area didn't disappoint any of us. We left so happy and satisfied we have decided to make this our family trip destination. The house is great and the location is amazing!. Pauline and Sergio made sure we had everything we needed. Pauline kept excellent communication and Sergio checked in on us daily to see if we had any needs. Be sure to have Laura (Sergios mom) cook for you on arrival to settle you in. The driver will offer to take you to either Walmart or Mega. Go to Mega. Its cheaper, nicer, less wait in lines (Walmart is over 45 minute wait in lines) and they have a better selection.

Owner's Response: Hola Rodney, we appreciate you taking the time to comment on our Casa! People always tell us that our location is perfect. Our home is close to everything and yet is a very peaceful place to relax and have lots of privacy. We are always so happy when guests enjoy our home and the Playa Del Carmen area as much as we do! We really hope you can come back! We always offer discounts for repeat guests.

Perfect location, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 7 adults just returned from a wonderful 8 days at Casa Palmas. From our first steps through the front door we were enchanted! This is a beautiful and comfortable home in a lovely and safe neighborhood just a block from the beach and 3 blocks to town. Everything was ready on our arrival with Sergio checking in daily to see if there was anything we needed. His warm and friendly presence added to our enjoyable stay and we especially appreciated his advice (when we asked for it) for restaurants (don't miss El Fogon) and snorkeling spots. We arranged for his mom to cook dinner for us one evening - a delicious meal!

This was our first trip to Playa and all of us agreed it's a perfect vacation spot. We enjoyed relaxing at the beach, visiting Mayan sites (we rented cars and easily drove to Chichen Itza, Coba and Tulum), snorkeling off Cozumel, exploring the more deserted beaches south of Tulum, walking around town and visiting an Ecopark. We always felt safe - even walking back to Casa Palmas after dark from an evening in town.

Thank you Pauline for allowing us to share your home! We'd love to return!

We had a very enjoyable stay with 4 adults and 3 kids stay for 1 week. Our favorite things were: Kids loved the small pool, very close walk to the beach, hanging out on the top deck. I don't have any complaints.

From Honeymooners to Proud Parents

  • 5 of 5
We rented this fabulous villa for our honeymoon in 2007 and we fell in love with it so much we came back twice and the second time with our 5 month old son !
We wanted a peaceful honeymoon so we decided against an all inclusive resort, it met and exceeded our expectations from the arrival at the airport where our personal driver Johnny awaited to bring us to our villa of paradise. Upon our arrival at Casa Palmas we were greeted by Sergio whom we are now so fond of. He took such great care of us I wish we could bring him back home and not to mention sweet Myra (maid). We were truly pampered :) The home was always clean and anything we needed was at our disposal. The main activity we did at the time was visit Xcaret. A must see !! we swam with the dolphines, went on a underwater sea trek, snorkling and saw an awesome live show at night, it was a great experience.
In Dec 2009 I was 3 months pregnant and needed some downtime and we couldnt think of a better place to go but back to our little piece of paradise.We rented Casa Palmas for a month. I had a few complications when I was there and that's when we met Dr Bernardo. He does housecalls and we thought that was amazing. He was so helpfull and caring checking up on me until we left. The location of the villa was a major plus this time, the beach is steps away and 5th Avenue where all the amazing shops and restaurants are is a 5 minute walk away that was a blessing for my swollen feet !!!! If I could have, I would have stayed there the remainder of my pregnancy but sadly that month flew by. In December 2010 we came back this time with our 5 month old boy in tow. What an amazing experience all over again, this time we had our very own POOL !!! and whats better no chlorine for my newborn's skin :) we also loved the fact that you have a water filter in the house now so we felt safe bathing our son without any fear of him swallowing contaminated water. Casa Palmas also provided us with a carseat in the pick up van, highchair, playpen to sleep in and an activity center ! Talk about being pampered !! Pauline & Alfred you have thought of it all. Everything else we needed we were able to purchase at the local walmart ! You have made a client for life and we will contiinue to share your villa with our growing family and we have recommended this property to all our friends and family. Thank you for sharing this spectacular home with us ! :)
