About Ashley Hildreth

I grew up traveling. After spending several years in NYC, I relocated to tiny Tulum to enjoy the good life. Here I set up my property management business and started my family.

I'm the property manager and am happy to share your vacation with you. My staff and I do everything we can to make sure your time here is a relaxing, unforgettable experience. We can help arrange special requests before your stay, such as airport transportation or grocery shopping. We work with the staff on site to assist with anything you need during your stay. Our office is conveniently located in Tulum town, but we look forward to greeting you at the beach house.

I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, exploring, and a good road trip.

We look forward to seeing you down here soon and sharing some of our insider secrets with you.

Ashley Hildreth purchased this villa in 1997

Why Ashley Hildreth chose Quintana Roo

Casa Playa Maya was developed in the PRIME location - protected in the centre of this reef-fringed, protected bay. Soliman Bay is still largely undiscovered so the beach is never crowded.

Year round you will enjoy gentle cool sea breezes, white, sandy beaches and warm water temperatures.

It's the perfect location for private holidays, family gatherings or weddings.

This is a kids paradise, better than Summer Camp we are told by lots of kids and parents too!

Abundant sea life. Come swim with the turtles.

What makes this villa unique

The Soliman Bay area is filled with attractions from Chichen Itza, Coba, Tulum, and Cozumel with ancient ruins and excellent diving and snorkeling. Soliman Bay is considered a world class beach with powder sand and reef-protected snorkeling. Nearby you will find world class dining.

Other day trips can include other local attractions such as: Xel-Ha Eco Park (4 km) and Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve (12 km), and Trent Jones 36 hole golf course (10 km). Full concierge services are available throughout your visit.

Casa Playa Maya is your affordable base for your family or group exploration of this still largely undiscovered paradise.

Beautiful beachfront, excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had an amazing journey to this Tulum property. Luis and Anabel where exceptional hosts and just all around kind people. We look very much to our next stay here! We both highly recommend a bit of night swimming preferably after a touch of tequila ;)

Loved this property!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at Casa Playa Maya! IT was beautiful there! Sadly for a few days of our week stay it was quite windy which resulted in a lot of seaweed on the beach. This is where the pool was extremely helpful - it was great to have an option! Only have amazing things to say about the caregivers on site - Louise and Anna-Bell. They truly made this experience and were extremely helpful through out our stay. They both really added a lot of value and we were all so happy to have them there! Would for sure go back!

Loved Casa Maya Playa

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about Casa maya Playa! It's a very relaxing get away just far enough out of town to really enjoy the beauty and seclusion of Solomin Bay. Our 9 and 7 year old boys would snorkel every day and even got to swim with turtles and sting rays! Our 3 year old loved the pool and the sand toys. The location of Casa Playa is perfect to many Cenotes, water parks and the town of Tulum. Luis and Anna Belle were amazing hosts and my kids just loved them! Highly recommend this place! 1 small little negative was water pressure but they are fixing in May

Wonderful Casa Playa Maya, beautiful beach, awesome people

  • 5 of 5

Casa Playa Maya and its casitas are a slice of heaven. Solimon Bay is perfect with a beautiful sandy beach protected by an awesome reef for snorkeling. The best part was Luis and Anabel; such wonderful caretakers.

Best family vacation so far...

  • 5 of 5

It's all about expectations and what your family loves to do. For us, this was a dream location, practically perfect. We have 4 kids (16, 14, 11 and 7) and we stayed with our cousins (4 kids with similar ages). We traveled in a huge party van and rented the main house and one casita. It was tight but worked (they have air mattresses you can use).

If what you want in your vacation is a luxury all-inclusive resort with loud music and people to party with, this isn't your place. If what you want is a bit of solitude, an amazing beach with quick access to Playa, ruins, cenotes and amazing food, this is your place.

We snorkeled until our muscles gave out (seriously, cramps in both calves, pulled quads, etc.). We saw more turtles, sting rays, fish, lion fish and other creatures than we could count. The turtles would come feed in the early morning and late afternoon hours and they didn't mind an audience. And the water is only waist deep for hundreds of yards off the beach! There were practically no currents or waves so it was amazingly safe and easy to snorkel, kayak and paddle board to your hearts content. Before taking this trip, I hadn't realized how nice it would be to have all of the beach toys at our fingertips, for free (bring your own snorkeling gear). My kids could have played for day and days without getting bored. This place is also centrally located for making trips to ruins and cenotes. We fell into a rhythm of getting up early and making the trek out to a cool Mayan ruin and then swimming in the closest Cenote followed by naps on the beach and snorkeling till dark.

We stocked up on groceries for cheap at the Walmart in Playa del Carmen. Helped to keep costs down but we'd eat out for one meal a day (favorite spot was La Lunita in Akumal for the adults, left kids with cereal for dinner that night).

Pros: Amazing location. Relatively private, gorgeous beach.

Cons: Just to set your expectations right...this is NOT a big resort. So don't expect instant maid service, room service, a front desk you can call at any time, towel service, high pressure showers, potable water or toilets that can flush toilet paper. But, I would trade all of these things to stay in a piece of paradise like this.

If you really want an adventure, take the long road to Ek-Balam and drive through the Mayan villages along the way. It will make you grateful for what you have in life. Amazing places. Can't wait to go back.
