“An enchanted vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We booked our 10 day vacation almost a year in advance and had the best time returning to the web site over and over again in preparation. Everything you see on the web site is true and the reality is even better. We arrived with our 4 children and 2 grandchildren on a Wednesday evening after a 12 hour journey. Opening the front door to a vista of the ocean was amazing. We were greated by Sashagirl, as our grandson called her the whole time, and she was so friendly and patient with all of us, especially the two young ones. Daisy and Armando are truly wonderful people, they speak English and unobtrusively make your stay unforgettable. They keep the entire villa spotlessly clean and cook heavenly meals for a very modest fee. The location is accessible to Playa del Carmen, Shel Ha, Tulum ruins, Puerto Adventuras and Akumal. There is great snorkeling at many Cenotes and a trip to Yal Kat in Akumal is a must. the restaurants on the beach road in Tulum are all wonderful and we enjoyed several lazy lunches at Casa Cenote right down the road. Casa Cenote also had the best Margaritas of the entire trip! Blue Sky is also great for pizza and the best Calamari I have ever tasted. The third floor of this villa is your own private planeterium. We saw the Milky way and thousands of stars. I recommend this villa to any large group who would love the freedom and privacy of a home with the conveniences of a five star resort.

“" A gem in a sea of sand"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We arrived in mid December to Casa Dena and Armando the caretaker was waiting for us to welcome us and open up the home! We were welcomed with homemade guacamole made by Armando and some tequila to set the mood. The home is immaculate and ever so spacious. We chose the room that faced the ocean so when you wake up the sun is rising right in front of you.The truth is all of the rooms have amazing views and are all spacious and so clean. There is a lap pool to cool off in the sun hits it midday. We collected some lovely shells to decorate the exterior dining table and a few to bring home for memories. Tulum is 10 minutes away for shopping and the best place for groceries and they also have clothing and much more is a store called the Chedraui, very convenient the only thing I found was the staff does not speak English but we made out O.K. We also travelled to Playa del Carmen for shopping there is a Wal Mart there and it's busy but for those extras it's great. The beach in front of Casa Dena however beautiful is rocky so for swimming we would go to the left or right where the beaches were sandy they are only a short walk away. We snorkled in the salt water Cenote just down the street from Casa Dena that was lovely and very enjoyable. There is a little convenience store right by the Cenote.. There is also an open air restaurant right there on the beach as well. We ate mostly at Casa Dena because the facilities are so fantastic, and one evening we had Armando and his lovely wife Daisy cook us a meal of fresh Mahi Mahi that we caught when we went out on a charter! The meal was fantastic Armando is a talented chef and Daisy and him make a great team. They were always around when we needed them but never once in the way. I call them the stealth caretakers, they have total respect for your privacy. We also had massages out on the lower deck...you have to do it relax and listen to the surf hit the beach...HEAVEN. Steve the owner was so accomodating and helpful. He answered all of our e-mails so quickly and made the booking simple. So if you are thinking of taking your family or going away with friends this is a marvelous home with four very large bedrooms 5 bathrooms, T.V. room, large living room, dining area and a fantastic kitchen where everyone will love to gather. The rooftop area with couches and views that go on forever fantastic, Oh and did I say the home is immaculate, well it is. There is so much to do with your family and friends and every thing is in such close proximity. I highly recommend Casa Dena to anyone who wants a holiday to remember for a long time. Thank you Steve, Armando, Daisy and of course who can forget our pet for a week Sasha. Thank you all and we will see you again.
