Guest book:

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.

Pierre & Karen Bartlette and Family Calgary, AB

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!

Outstanding Property Excellent Service

  • 5 of 5

I have to be really honest-I was a little skeptical about booking through VRBO and this property for a 7 day long trip to Playa Del Carmen with my family. I did not know what to expect. However, Pauline did an amazing job of demonstrating empathy. Pauline answered our questions promptly, she made suggestions so we could enjoy our trip, and she kept her promises. The property was spectacular!!! Very clean, organized, safe, and comfortable. We loved the fact that we were within a 1 minute walking distance to the BEST BEACH in Playa Del Carmen. Sergio was there for any question, Sergio's mom prepared a delicious meal for us, Maria did an excellent job of cleaning the property, and Jorge saved us from the chaos at the airport! This was a perfect property in a perfect location. I felt like a local by the time we left. Thank you Pauline for everything! I cant wait to visit Playa Del Carmen again. I know where I am staying :)

Owner's Response: Alfredo, Thank you for taking the time to write your review of our property. I have always believed that travelling to a place you have never been before is a stressful endeavour, and if we are able to provide customer service that would lessen some of that stress, then we are on the right track. We look forward to another opportunity to host you at Casa Palmas, and once again, thank you for your positive comments!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Pauline, thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful house.

The property was extremely comfortable and of beautiful interior/exterior.

We all had a fantastic time, and only wish we had stayed here the two times we had visited Playa before.

Everything was perfect and Maria and Sergio were so polite and extremely good at their jobs.

Again thank you so much for everything and we hope to visit again the early part of next year.

À wonderfull place !

Idéalement situé à Playa del Carmen : le plus bel endroit de la ville, au cœur d'un parc de végétation tropicale, la maison est spacieuse sur 2 étages et bien équipée (il manque tout de même le lave vaisselle lorsqu'on est nombreux)

Prestation ménage ++

Très bon accueil de l'intendant sur place.

Nous avons beaucoup aimé !!

Wonderful Accomidations

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 wonderful days at Las Palmas. Great layout and close to the beach and Quinta Avenida. Also, Had a wonderful cooked meal by Sergio's mother from Wahoo we had caught the day before. A wonderful way to finish our time in Playa del Carmen. The area is great for adventurers or beach goers. We went scuba diving, Fishing, Visited Mayan Ruins, as well as zip line, 4 wheelers, and swimming in a cenote. Thanks so much Paulins and Sergio.

  • 5 of 5


Thank you for sharing your beautiful villa with my family and I again this year. Your renovations to the villa were absolutely wonderful!! and your attention to detail... from the art work....right down to the curtain choice was great. My children loved!! the villa and were for sure asking to come back next year!!! The pool was a hit with my little great time was had by all. They were so impressed with the close proximity of the ocean and 5th Avenue!! we had many little picnics on the beach. Of course can't say enough about Maria and Sergio...they are for sure the best staff you could possibly want..never ever let them go!!!!

Paradise in Playa Del Carmen

  • 5 of 5

I don't know what else I can say that hasn't already been said in the previous reviews! Everything about Casa Palmas is wonderful, from the owner Pauline (who responded promptly to all of our emails and calls promptly), to Sergio the property manager (who checked on us every day and made sure all of the little things were taken care of quickly), to Maria the wonderful house cleaner (who came in 3 days a week to clean up after us and make the place shine from top to bottom), to the villa itself!!!

This was our 10th trip to Playa and by far our longest at 34 days. During our time in Mexico we had a total of 10 people come an stay with us at the villa at different times, and everyone had nothing but superlatives to say about Casa Palmas! We all loved our morning coffee on the second floor deck and our afternoon and evening drinks on the rooftop terrace! The beautiful beach is only a short walk away and Fifth Avenue is just a 10 minute stroll with all of its shops and fine restaurants, so the location is ideal. On top of all this the house is fully equipped including beach chairs, beach umbrellas, bicycles, towels, etc., etc..

I do have to give a special shout out to Sergio's mother, Laura, who cooked two fabulous dinners for us while we were there! They were among the best meals we had in Playa and well worth the money! I highly recommend having her come in and cook at least one meal during your stay.

In closing, I would recommend Casa Palmas to anyone looking for a vacation or extended stay in Playa Del Carmen. It can't be beat for location and amenities and the wonderful people associated with it!!!
