Soliman Bay house description

Located on a beautiful, white sand beach, Villa Leona is an unique property on beautiful 'Soliman Bay ' . It is 10mins from Tulum, and a million miles away from your day-to-day stresses and worries - the perfect place to totally unwind. This charming, ecological home has been tastefully set-back on the lot, leaving the original trees and palms that line a sandy path down to the spot most guests spend as much of their time as possible - under a palapa equipped with hammocks and lounge chairs, . Here the tropical breezes will cool your skin as you gaze out over the amazing hues of blues that make up Bahia Soliman (Soliman Bay)... truly one of the last idyllic beaches on the Riviera Maya. You will see a wide variety of birds such as brown pelicans, frigate birds, snowy egrets and blue heron. The song of the sea breeze making the plan fronds sway will be the music that lulls you during an afternoon siesta. The house has a Master bedroom downstairs and a charming loft on the second floor with a bridge and a 2nd smaller outside terrace. The owner of this house spends a lot of time in Africa, and the house has the charm, influence and warmth of both countries. From palapa roof (natural thatch) to African photo's , it is a one of a kind. The staff is not only one of the best on the bay, but the husband is also a chef!!! He will be happy to prepare both local and international dishes for you if you wish. There are two bathrooms, a half bath upstairs and a full downstairs, a kitchen, living room/dining room and of course another outdoor eating area. There is also an outdoor barbecue area. The bay out in front is both perfect for swimming, but also one of the best and calmest for snorkeling. This is a wonderful spot for novices and expert snorkelers. Small coral heads act as shelter for a myriad of fish life and the reef that spans the entrance to the Bay ensures calm waters most days. Bring an underwater camera to capture shots of graceful rays, colorful schools of blue tang and sergeant majors and during the summer months sea turtles. Night time visits to the beach will be rewarded with spectacular star-gazing as a results of minimum light. As you eyes become accustomed to the low-light, you will see the wonder of the Milky Way so close you will feel you can reach up and touch it. There are 2 kayaks for your enjoyment as well as a convenient outside shower.
Stay at this house once and you will be planning your return before you even leave.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: Originally from Wisconsin, I moved to this area in 1986 and would not want to live anywhere else, I just love it here. I built this house for me and my family and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. I selected this spot before any development and I think I picked the BEST spot on this gorgeous bay, with the best and easiest access to the water and the best views. I have travelled extensively so understand what travelers look for in a vacation home... This house reflects my two passions: Mexico and Africa and there is a strong African theme in the decor of my Mexican beach house.

Why the Owner Chose Soliman Bay:
I was one of the first people to buy a lot on this Bay and I chose what is arguably the BEST spot as my house has one of the best sandy beaches with EASY, and SANDY access into the water. I built this home to enjoy with family and friends having fallen in love with the the natural beauty of Soliman Bay which remains to this day one of the most unspoiled spots on the entire Riviera Maya. If you have ever visited the area you will understand that one of the biggest attractions is the people and I am blessed to have a wonderful couple live on the property as caretakers and they will also take great care of you during your stay

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Perhaps the best part of the beach on Soliman Bay with easy, sandy access into the water. Imagine reading a great book while swinging gently in a hammock under a Palapa on a picture postcard white sand beach in front of the ever changing turquoise-blue waters of the Caribbean - like a scene from the movie Blue Lagoon! This is Soliman Bay. Peaceful, gentle, quiet, romantic, relaxing, exclusive, gorgeous, welcoming Soliman Bay. Where each day will bring back the simple pleasures of a beach front vacation, like beach combing, swimming, snorkeling, star-gazing or just relaxing.
