We loved staying here! It was so much fun to be here with family. The beach was amazing and the kids loved the toys at the house. The only thing was that it was 2hrs away from Disney not an hour and 15 so keep that in mind if you want to do Disney. Other than that the whole experience was so great

Location! Location! Location! We felt like we were on a remote island all to ourselves. The beach is, literally, 50 yards behind the house. The house is beautiful and up to date on the inside. My 6 year old nephew was with us. He had a ton of toys to play with...very kid friendly! Best weekend I've had in years!

This place is great. Host is great. No complaints at all. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Stayed over the weekend with perfect weather and almost nobody on the beach so we had it mostly to ourselves. Can't say enough about it.

Casa Playa is an amazing home, the pictures are only a glimpse on how nice this place is. Our group could not believe how relaxing it was. You are steps from the beach and it feels like the beach belongs to you, since its so secluded. The house is well maintained and has a modern feel to it. I would recommend this place if your looking to relax and enjoy your surroundings.

We had a great time at Casa Playa. The amenities were perfect for us and our family including a newborn baby. Very beautiful modern decor made the stay feel comfortable. Our favorite part of this house was the beach being literally steps away. We definitely plan on staying here again in the future.

Even better than the pictures!!! What a beautiful home! Beach chic, steps from the waves. The beach is secluded and a very short walk across the private bridge and you're on the sand. Spent a girls weekend here to celebrate my 40th and the home and location were perfection! If you're looking for quick access to restaurants, bars etc this would not be the right home. However if you're looking to connect with loved ones in a beach front home, this is it!!! Thanks for a great stay!
