“Perfect Location, Charming Apartment. An Oasis in Playa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

We had a lovely two week stay in Casita Coba last month. The apartment itself is delightfully unfussy, decorated simply and with good taste. Everything you could need is provided, including chairs and umbrella to take to the beach. We loved spending time on the front balcony, looking out onto the peaceful residential street and watching the agoutis, birds and occasional iguana! The swimming pool for the complex is quiet and beautifully landscaped. Very refreshing. Probably the best feature is the location: a five minute stroll past ancient ruins to the gorgeous beach, or a five minute stroll in the other direction to the delightful hustle and bustle of Fifth Avenue, with all the fabulous restaurants, bars and shops. Would highly recommend it for a great vacation.

“Very nice. Stay here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Casita Coba is truly a lovely condo. We have been staying in condo's in Mexico for the last 10 years and this one is the best yet. In our experience most condos are kinda cottage like with tired furniture and your left over dishes and ftatware. This place has real quality silverware, dishes, pots pans knives and especially, really nice wine glasses. You will be putting those glasses to the task as there is a very large balcony on both the front and back of the condo to relax and "drink" in the surroundings. Those surroundings are both beautiful. A lovely pool area in the back and the coolest banyan tree I have seen since Maui in the front. The condo has a local property manager and exquisite maid service, every other day you return to a "new" condo. The furnishings, linens, artwork and especially the outdoor spaces are all exceptional. This is a very comfortable place yet you are 1 minute to a great beach and 2 minutes to La Quinta. We just came home from 2 weeks here and look very forward to returning.

“Very well equipped and awesome location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

The property is fully equipped and very comfortable. It is located at the end of a quiet street but within a 5-10 minutes walk to the 5th Avenida and beaches. Very good service and attention from beginning to end from the administrator (Claudia).

“A serene oasis with the trendy Playa literally just around the corner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013 for a stay in April 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We are from the Boston area and we arrived in Playa on the day of the Boston Marathon bombing. We knew what had happened as soon as we arrived at Casita Coba because we had free Wi-Fi which was invaluable given the circumstances.
The place was absolutely gorgeous and I mean the apartment as well as the surroundings. We loved the drooping tree in the middle of the road, we loved the architecture of the home, the use of natural materials. There are balconies literally around the apartment. Around it... a balcony from every room. We had the pool to ourselves much of the time as it was low season and the neighbors in other condos/apartments were so incredibly friendly. Casita Coba is just around the corner from very trendy outlet shopping- Armani Exchange, Diesel, Lacoste and on and on as well as indigenous stores and restaurants. Starbucks smack dab in the middle of it too. We ate at different restaurants everyday but the kitchen is fabulous so cooking is an option. We watched break-dancing and all kinds of free entertainment every evening in the center of Fifth avenue, shopped at the "Mega" for fresh fruits. We would enjoy the bustle of Fifth Avenue and areas around it and then retreat to the quiet of the Casita. Fabulous beach just out the back. We absolutely loved Casita Coba. Perfect place in the perfect location.

“Perfection in playa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The apartment is spacious, well presented, clean to the point of obsession and located in an ideal spot to enjoy the town, the beach and ultimately yourselves.

There are too many plus points to list, but I'll mention a couple anyway, the pool is fantastic the balconies ideal for eating and relaxing the air con essential for your comfort when the mercury rises.

If you're after a fully furnished and stylish option for your stay in playa, look no further.

“Our Perfect Honeymoon Getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

Casita Coba was a much better pick for our honeymoon than any hotel or resort of the region! We got to experience the best that Playa Del Carmen has to offer in a cozy, well-decorated, and luxurious apartment.

We were 5 minutes walk away from the beach and La Quinta. All travel tour companies and taxis knew Casita Coba which made it easy for us to get picked up and dropped off by tour buses when we visited the many wonders surrounding the city (Chichen Itza, Tullum, XCaret, etc.).

The owners were easy to work with for the booking, helpful and always available. Their property manager helped with our pickup at the airport (and drop off), and when we lost the key of the safe, was very reactive in helping us open it (which took an entire day).

If you are planning a visit to Playa Del Carmen, we strongly recommend Casita Coba. It exceeded all of our expectations!

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We couldn’t think of anything bad to say if we wanted to! Husband, myself and teenage son stayed for the week and couldn’t be happier. Everything you need to cook a meal, go to the beach, relax, watch some TV, the pool, and internet to keep in touch, it's all there. Couple minute walk to the beach and 5th Avenue. Everything really right at your fingertips, truly a great time!
