“Great house and amenities”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

We just returned from Casa Caribena where we stayed over Christmas week. 4 grandparents, 2 sets of parents and 4 kids aged 14, 12, and 11 year old twins. We loved the house and overall experience.
1. Lisa (owner) was very proactive and communicative during all facets of the rental and provided tons of helpful tips about the house and area. An A+ renter.
2. The house itself was perfect for 12 people (we rented both the upstairs and downstairs units. Spacious and comfortable - very "beach-y" vibe. It has wifi and 2 TVs.
3. Its set right on the beach - with views of the ocean from 4 of the BRs. The porches and verandas were just the right place for pre and post dinner cocktails and general lounging.
4. The beach itself was wide, though the immediate entrance to the water was fairly covered with coral - walking 20 yards north allowed for a more comfortable access to the water. The water itself was clear and when calm (it was windy on a few occasions) easily swimmable and great for snorkeling.
5. I, at first, thought having the pool in the front of the house was strange, but when the wind blew, it became the perfect refuge and the kids spent many hours cavorting and having fun.
6. The kitchen was well appointed and had everything you needed if you chose to cook (more on that in a second). The dining room sat 12 people quite comfortably.
7. Taxis were plentiful and came in 10 minutes if you needed to get to town and we rented a car just to have in a pinch.
8. Lily and Bere (the cooks and cleaners) were cheery and helpful - the fact that Lily spoke no English and we no Spanish never created a problem. Ask them to cook breakfast and dinner and they'll do all the shopping and cleaning for you. Her gauc and salsa were excellent. I'd say her overall cooking abilities were fair (and I feel almost guilty writing this as she was so sweet and efficient), but we were on vacation and ate everything she made.
9. There is a dive shop 100 yards north of the house for snorkeling equipment, a cenote across the street from the dive shop and a restaurant called Blue Sky a few yards further north that we ate at 3 times. They make excellent pizzas. For slightly higher end meals, head to the beach at Tulum and you'll have a wonderful experience. Very laid back/eco-chic but not pretentious in the least.
10. We did a day trip to Coba to see the ruins which was great for kids and parents alike. You can walk to the top of a pretty steep pyramid which provided terrific views.
11. All in all - it was a tremendous experience and I can't recommend Casa Caribena more highly.

“Great Casa, Great help, and beautiful surroundings!”
Reviewed November 24, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

It was a wonderful environment for my 2 brothers, one who lives in California, the other in Illinois, my 4 children and their spouses, coming from Illinois, Arizona and Alaska to get together for my 70th Birthday. All 12 of us were amazed at the cleanliness, and the care we were given at Casa ! Lilly, Betty & Preeci were wonderful and so very helpful...We had Lilly cook for us several times, and it was excellent! We are are a family of great chefs, so we had the availability of preparing some of our own meals in a very well stocked kitchen...The house is spacious and allows everyone their own space when needed....The grounds are perfectly maintained and the pools spotless! The views from the roof top pool & patio were spectacular! I also want to mention the owner Lisa, who was totally on top of answering all of our questions in the 3 months after making our reservation. She resp onds quickly and gives all the information that was needed...Thanks, Lisa.....I would recommend this to anyone seeking a wonderful vacation spot! We already have friends asking about this rental just from the pictures we posted.....I already miss the beautiful beach and sunrises & sunsets!

“I am so refreshed and relaxed. : )”
Reviewed November 11, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Soaking in the bright beautiful sun, listening to the waves calmly lap against the shore while a lovely breeze caressed my skin was a wonderful experience. My stay was completely relaxing and very enjoyable. The house and the grounds were very clean, fresh, and comfortable. My favorite part was the delicious meals cooked by Lilly and Betty. Everyone was very hospitable and kind. I have to thank Lisa and Andre for making a dream of mine come true.

“Amazing vacation experience”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our group of six stayed the second week in September. This is our 3rd time here and won't be our last. As usual Lilly had the house immaculatly clean and prepared an awesome meal for us.Having Lilly around is a God send. We love having the second largest coral reef in the world right out our back door. The snorkeling is amazing. The third night while relaxing on the porch overlookking the sea we saw a sea turtle come out of the water up on the beach next door. Wow! The proximity to so many Mayan ruin sites makes day tripping really fun. Wandering just a coule minutes up the beach to one of the restaurants for a cool mid day mojito and icy beer became a daily ritual that I still miss. This villa and surrounding area are tropical and elegant, historic, fun and adventurous with a nutural flavor. Our favorite feature of this house is the seaside porch is the closest to the water of any other house we see in the area. We never even turned on the TV!

“Another return trip to True Paradise!!”

person found this review helpful

We just returned from our 7th vacation at Casa Caribena!
Although we used to love to explore other rental properties and areas, we immediately changed our minds after our first visit to the magnificent property over 7 years ago!
The home offers top of the line amenities, unlike no other rental property we have visited before. In addition, the villa's setting, just a mere few steps to the tranquil turquoise waters of Tankah Bay, will take your breath away!
Lily and her staff are amazing, and the cuisine that she offers up is truly topnotch!
Lisa and Andre, the property owners, are more than accommodating, and always willing to give advice on attractions and restaurants located in nearby Tultm, which is only a short cab ride away!
We have already reserved our return visit next year, and are anxiously counting down the days until we are once again, at what we have lovingly nicknamed, our "True Paradise"!!

Yes, this is the most awesome vacation rental ever! We rented the 3 bdrm downstairs with seaside porch and quiet pool setting. House is magnificent, clean and the daily support was seamless. Swim, snorkel, wade, dive, kayak all right out the front door. At this time of year the cost was phenomenally low ($1,500/week) for three couples, OMG! Restaurants down the beach and less than 10 min to town (if you need to go to town!)

We will be back!!!! Thank you for a most wonderful vacation and location!

This was a great place to stay. Big enough for 13 of us. Excellent snorkeling and kayaking right outside our door. The house and grounds are well maintained. The housekeeping staff was welcoming and accommodating. We enjoyed every one of Lily's meals. Prici, who maintains the property was very helpful with information on where to go and how to get places (we didn't have a car). All of this combined with a spectacular view, made for one of the most restful vacations ever.
