Our experience staying at Casa Amigos set the bar future vacations for our family. The house was in a quiet part of a highly secure and charming neighborhood close to everything we wanted to see and do. The home itself was the perfect size for our family of five and exactly as pictured in the listing. Everything was impeccably clean, the bedrooms were comfortable and it was great to have a bathroom for every bedroom. The second level of this home is solely dedicated to a master suite and wrap-around outdoor living area that was the perfect getaway for the adults in our party. We had our morning coffee on the covered patio area while we enjoyed listening to the ocean and wildlife. We love to cook and found the kitchen well-stocked for this purpose. The living areas were nicely appointed and comfortable. Our favorite spot, however, is the pool and patio area at the front of the home. We all spent countless hours lounging poolside and cooling off. The kids played in the pool well into the evenings every night. The property was meticulously maintained while we were there, though the staff was not in any way intrusive. The pool was always clean and housekeeping came on Wednesday to clean, change sheets & towels and freshen things up while we were out exploring downtown Playa. It's a quick walk to the beach (less than 2 minutes), which we also enjoyed. The gem of this place, however, are the house managers, Tara and Luis. From the moment we booked to the moment we left, Tara and Luis worked to make sure our stay was truly memorable. We used their grocery service and had amazing communication from Tara about the items we requested, suggestions on quantities (more Jalapenos!) and alternate selections when the things we requested were not available. Everything was organized and ready for us in the kitchen when we arrived and we could not have been more pleased. Tara also helped us schedule a van and driver for the day to take us to Tulum to see the Mayan Ruins and to explore local cenotes. The day trip became the highlight of our vacation and our guide, Tony, was fantastic. We truly cannot say enough about our experience with Tara, Luis and Casa Amigos. If we don't take all of our future vacations at Casa Amigos, we will certainly measure every future trip against this one. Thank you, Richard and Cyndi, for sharing your lovely home with us. And a BIG thank you to Tara and Luis for their warm and welcoming hospitality.
