Private Homes house description

The Secret Beach Villas have long been a favorite of the Mayan Riviera, and for some good reasons.

We have been renting our villas for 12 years, we have everything you need from an on-site property manager, to extras like Central A/C, Wi-Fi, Free Phone Calls anywhere, USA satellite TV (80+ channels) just like back home in English, so you won't miss the next Survivor or CSI episodes. You would be hard pressed to think of amenities that we don’t have in the villas. We have extensive list of excursions to offer you as well as maps to local shopping and restaurant suggestions.

Perfect Villa for the 'Working Vacation' - Virtual Office - WiFi 'N'/Laptop /Printers/Vonage/Cisco Network

Unlike many villas in the area we are ONSITE OWNERS whom mange their own vacation home, we are only 300 feet away if you need us.

Owner is Professional Chef.

We have become an intuition in the area, one of the 1st to offer beach front villa rentals - 50% of our guest are repeat customers.


We make your Vacation Hassle Free: The 1st thing every guest says when they arrive, is the Villa & Ocean are more beautiful than even the pictures show, with the ocean's edge 30 feet from the back door, you always have a great view of the turquoise water of the Carribean. We furnished our villas with real living room furniture all imported from Pottery Barn or Macys. In our villas we want you to feel like your home.

When you book a villa, we have all the information and assistance to help make planning your vacation hassle free. We have downloadable maps to Costco, Wal-Mart in Playa del Carmen & Cancun and Hospitals. You can go online thru our site and view videos of activities and reserve online, including Golf Tee Times or a Catamaran trip to Isla Mujeres, and Fishing and Snorkeling in Puerto Morelos. Our FAQ have every question you could think of including a Mayan Riviera Swine flu update. We offer a grocery shopping service that will buy all your grocery’s and have them waiting in the villa for you.

Chef Miguel & Welcome Dinner Menu: The villa owner is a professional chef and restaurant owner (Hola Asia in Puerto Morelos) and will cook your food with the 'Sazon y Sentimiento' (Taste and Feeling) of Mexico, for the 'foodies on vacation' you can schedule an afternoon private cooking class with Chef Miguel.

Here is our Welcome dinner we offer arrival night so guest can relax and get their bearings without having to go out to a restaurant to eat. One of the many dinners on our villas food service menu.
The Mexican Welcome dinner - $18 per person
(Served on Sat. evening for arrivals – you may also order this meal anytime)
• Chicken Flautas
• Guacamole
• Pico del Gallo & Chips
• Beef Fajita
• Cheese and Chicken Enchiladas
• Mexican Rice
• Fried Plantain
• Beans
• Flan
• Margaritas.

All meals come with a pitcher of Margaritas or Pina Coladas or Sangria.
Meals run $18 - $24. Not up for dinner, we also offer 'Happy Hour' munchies and we deliver them right to you, so you can snack at the pool.

Chef Miguel and Private Cooking Class: Chef Miguel will come to your vacation villa and teach you the in and outs of some of the popular Mayan Dishes along with hands on training... be prepared to be involved with the food preparation as Miguel’s Suez Chefs or grab a stool with a margarita or a cerveza and just watch. It’s a fun and festive afternoon preparing a Mayan dinner along with insights to both Mexican/Mayan Ingredients as well as Cultural viewpoints… afternoon of pure Foodie heaven! You don’t have to be a seasoned Chef…or you could be… but either way you learn recipes that you can easy make back at home. After the cooking is done sit down to a memorable Mayan dinner you have just prepared.
You can go to Chef Miguels website Cancun Chef and learn about his passion for food. Miguel is a real 'Foodie' and loves nothing more than to talk food the villa guest, many of whom are chefs themselves. This last yaer he spent a month in Southeast Asia takig cooking classes in Thailand, Vietnam and Taiwan.

                                              Enjoying our time at our private villa! 09/09/2013

                                              VRBO Bear stayed here:


                                              Wow, this is one spoiled, relaxed, and rejuvenated bear! If you are the type of person who longs for the privacy of a house but enjoys the service of a hotel while on vacation, then this property is the place for you! From the moment we arrived at this lovely villa, we knew we had picked the perfect spot for our trip. We were offered fresh tropical drinks upon arrival and felt immediately at home.

                                              Miguel and Liza were the perfect hosts – leading up to the trip Liza made sure we had all of the details we needed, from directions to transportation, and after we arrived Miguel helped us plan all of our activities. We really enjoyed our snorkeling trip at Puerto Morelos (only a 10 minute drive and they will pick you up at the villa) as well as checking out the nightlife in Playa Del Carmen (an easy 20 minute drive if you rent a car, which the bear recommends if you plan to explore the Mayan ruins or cenotes).

                                              Most of all, we enjoyed soaking up the sun in the amazing full-sized poolside beds, jumping in the refreshing pool, and enjoying the waves on our very private beach (we felt like celebrities). If you walk further down the beach, you will hit a few crowded resorts with beachgoers crammed next to one another. Every time we walked by we thought, “We are so lucky to be in our private villa!”

                                              Another perk of this property is Miguel’s fabulous cooking! We had the beef fajita welcome dinner as well as the authentic Mayan pork dinner. Not only were both meals delicious, but they are brought right to the villa at whatever time you specify, along with margaritas! What more could you ask for? Another treat that was my personal favorite was the lobster pizza – you’ve got to try it! If you do feel like cooking during your stay, the kitchen is fully stocked with ample fridge space and bottled water is provided. And if you want to pamper yourself even further, you can schedule a mani/pedi or massage right by the beach!

                                              From the tranquil beach to the attentive hosts, this place was truly a gem! Thank you Liza and Miguel for the most wonderful vacation! We will be back at the next opportunity we have!

                                                The Shell Villa was a perfect spot to celebrate my birthday weekend with friends. The house was beautiful, the pool perfect, a few steps past the past the pool was the beach. We started our stay with a wonderful dinner prepared by Miguel and his team, (so good we ordered dinner the next night as well). Some of our favorite items were the enchiladas, fish, chicken, lentils, endless guacamole, pico de gallo and fabulous margaritas. We were able to book snorkeling with a quick call to Liza, the spa services rep came by on our first morning and we booked great massages and exfoliations for the next morning around our pool. We met the folks renting the adjacent villa and they were nice and with the short walls between the villas there was still plenty of privacy. We had beautiful sunrises every morning, great walks along the beach, nice trips into Puerto Morelos for snorkeling, and happy hour, dinner in Playa del Carmen. We rented a car which worked out great as the villa was a little off the beaten path, perfectly located for us, but quick trips into town easier with a car. Great villa, helpful and friendly owners, amazing food and drink, lovely pool and beach - we will be back for sure!

                                                SUPER Extended Family Vacation for our family of 10- 2 grandparents, 1 son's family of 5 including a 7, 5, 1 yr old., 1 son and wife and 1 adult daughter. We take a family vacation every year, and this was maybe the best! I hate to tell you about it, because next year it might be all booked up. But Miguel and Lisa deserve the best- they are the quintessential hosts! Has all ingredients to satisfy the most picky family member! Only 20 minutes from Cancun airport. An exquisite view from the house. Parents could look out from the house and see the kids at the private pool, or go through secure gate to take kids to the surf. Along a powdered sugar beach with warm, turquoise water. The beach was really wide- picture football in the surf and sand- the kids could walk out the gentle slope far into the water, and the waves were gentle and boogie boarding was good. We felt like we had our own private beach. There's a security guard at the entrance off Hwy 307. We had no worries at all because Miguel and staff operate out of the quarters at the front gate of the villa property itself, like a second layer of security. Daily maid service kept things neat. Every family had their own bedroom and bathroom, which were beautifully decorated. Towels, linens, up to date electronics provided,Wi Fi, free telephone. But the BEST, for all those moms wanting a break, is that Miguel and Gilberto will bring dinner to your table overlooking the ocean and pool and it is DELICIOUS! The prices beat the restaurant! The neighbor took a taxi from the airport and never left the property. They'll even shop for groceries! My daughter in law, mother of 3, was so tickled to not have to negotiate a restaurant at night. Miguel worked for Club Med and Lisa worked for Ford in Mexico in Quality assurance and give attention to every detail in customer service. I just picked up the phone if I needed something. One morning, I realized I hadn't ordered our dinner for the night, and they made a few switches to make it happen. Check the price- more than competitive. If you are worried about being in an attached villa with two other families, don't. The views from your villa is of a beautiful beach- you don't notice the peripheral. The sound from the other villa inside is non-existent. I think Miguel and Lisa book only nice people- you can choose- maintain privacy or make new friends- my grandkids enjoyed making friends and switching which pool to play in. We absolutely loved it!!

                                                My wife and I and 3 of our friends came down for her bday party and we can't say enough about Liza, Miguel, Humberto, and the entire staff and home. This is the best location to be in, the sea, the beach and home are truely spectacular. Miguel and Humberto did an amazing job with the 4 dinners we ate at the house. The Mayan Pork dinner was our favorite and the Margs. are delicious. Liza made sure all our requests were taken care of and made the experience truely special. We definitely will stay here every time in the future. Thanks to everyone at the boat villa in Playa de Secreto.

                                                We just returned from a wonderful week vacation at The Secret Beach Villas in Playa del Secreto. We stayed in the Shell Villa There were 8 of us four adults and four adult kids. We loved the Villa plenty of space and Liza and Miguels attention to detail is amazing. The pool and the beach were beautiful and the staff keeps everything so clean. We felt very safe our whole trip we rented cars and went to Akumal and swam with the sea turtles. We also made several trips to Play Del Carmen to shop and have dinner. We went to Coba and hike the tallest Mayan Ruin. Everyone we encountered was very friendly and helpful. We also had dinner and went shopping in Puerto Morelos very beautiful town. Would highly recommend staying in one of these villas everything is top notch.

                                                Dear Liza and Miguel, Last week was the most relaxing vacation ever. The villa far exceeded my expectations and I can honestly say it is the nicest place Dave and I have ever stayed at, and we have stayed at a lot! The location is absolutely beautiful with a breathtaking view of the Caribbean. I could not believe all the amenities in the villa - way more than anywhere else. The bedrooms were inviting and tastefully decorated. I could not believe that every bedroom had their own ensuite - no one had to share, which is huge when you have 8 people staying in one villa. The welcoming dinner was amazing and Miguel - you are quite the chef! There were lots of things you could do if you wanted to - from para sailing, sailing, water skiing, tours etc., but I just enjoyed relaxing by the pool, walking on the beach, reading and soaking up the sun. I would recommend your villas to anyone. Definitely a five star in my mind. Thanks for a great vacation. Pam Sanders Strathroy, Ontario Canada

                                                Hello Liza and Senor Miguel Mateos: Just a quick note to say Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful time we had at Playa del Secreto. Everything was fabulous including the staff. Our meals were superb and we will not hesitate to stay there again, in fact we are planning for our entire family to come and use 2 villas. What a true paradise you have there. Please tell Chef Mateos that his meals were a hit. Our family and friends who stayed at the Royal Resort In Playa del Carmen were so happy to enjoy authentic Mexican food. Our sincere thanks to you. Everything worked perfectly including the Airport transfers with Victor. We also loved the use of the car which enabled us to make several trips to Walmart and the wedding venue. Well done. Have a super fantastic time in Paradise. -- For Such a Time as This.

                                                I recently stayed at the Shells Villa and I must say it was a very enjoying relaxing vacation. The locate was great and the beach and pool was wonderful to basically have a private beach and pool. I plan on coming back again. The service that we got was A 1 and I also enjoy my massage that Norberto gave me was wonderful. It was a very clean and the rooms and bathrooms nice size. I would like to thank you so very much for everything that you had for me while I stayed there from 5/28/11 to 6/4/11. Thank you again Lillian Rodriguez

                                                Hi Liza- Just wanted to say thank you once again for the wonderful time we had at the Secret beach Villas. The Frasers were the new family that came with us this year and they said it was way better than they had ever planned. You and Miguel are great people along with your staff. And a special thanks for letting us stay on Friday night for free and also for letting us have 1 extra person than your max limit. This was my families 2ND time at your villas and I'm sure to say we will be back. Great food, fun, friends and sun and of coarse great hosts to the villas. Thank Miguel for the great job he did cooking the Red Snapper and the Grouper. It was delicious! I may need the recipe for the one with lime, cilantro and and raw fish that was cooked by the acid of the lime juice (Ceviche.) Thanks again for everything, Deb Donnelly

                                                I recently had the pleasure of staying at Secret Beach Shell Villa. The descripton of the Villa was accurate and the photos accurately reflect the ammenities. The property was amazingly clean and well maintained. The Media has been so negative regarding the safety of Mexico. I felt totally safe and secure during my stay. We took one afternoon to drive down to Tulum. Same experience there...beautiful and safe. The Villa is located between Puerto Morelos and Playa Del Carmen. Again, no issues with safety. The ocean is an amazing azur with soft white sand. The hosts, Liza and Miquel, are wonderful and helpful with questions and offering suggestions. Additionally, Miquel is an outstanding chef. I would highly recommend this rental property for a memorable vacation experience.

                                                My family and I stayed at the Secret Beach Fish Villa for a week. We had a great time. The property is gorgeous! Huge rooms, lots of space for a big family to hang out. It is also so nice to have your own private pool. We had Miguel cook us a welcome dinner our first night there and the food was amazing and the portions were huge! Also, Liza and Miguel were kind enough to extend our stay by one night when the big blizzard hit Chicago and we could not return. All in all, we had a wonderful time and would love to return again in the future!

                                              Year Purchased: 1997

                                              About the owner: Hello let me introduce ourselves. My name is Liza and my husband is Miguel, and we are the owners of the Secret Beach Villas since 1997. We got in to the Villa Rental Business quite by accident. We had traveled to Playa del Carmen on a few occasions for vacations. One trip while doing some exploring we decided to check out a road we saw off the main highway. To make a long story short, we found Playa del Secreto, fell in love with it, we bought a villa and decided to rent out when we weren’t using it. We moved from the cold of Metro Detroit in 1999 to live full-time in the warmth of the tropics. Miguel is a professional Chef and cooks for our guest if requested. He has several years of management experience with Club Med - he speaks French, English, Spanish and Italian. Miguel is a Mexican native whom lived in the States for years, he is a real people person (which sorry to say I am not, I’m the computer Geek.) He enjoys fishing and is a real Foodie, we take a lot of Culinary vacations. He is on Facebook and you can read his Passion for food on www.CancunChef.com I owned an Engineering Consulting company in Metro Detroit that specialized in the statically analysis of automotive Camshafts and Crankshafts for the big 3. I traveled all over the world crunching numbers for the big 3 auto companies. Check out my Blog “Getting it Done” in the Mayan Riviera… Life, Work and all the Guest Luggage!!!

                                              We have been around for almost 15 years now. We know exactly what your are looking for to make our vacation home a great experience for you, that is why we have so many repeat customers and why we have an active Fan Page.
