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 Tulum

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.

Luis and his family were very gracious and helpful. Wendy was very easy to deal with and responded quickly to my numerous questions.

                                                                        Ideal winter vacation on beautiful, quiet Soliman Bay

The location is great for activities (don't miss the Tulum and Coba ruins, local cenotes, and the monkey sanctuary), and kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkeling off the beautiful beach out your front door. Easy to cook in the kitchen and local markets are easy to fine-- beds are comfortable. We all enjoyed our week!!
