Property description

Since 1998... Authentically designed and beautifully maintained private Beachfront Vacation property near Tulum on pristine and coveted Soliman Bay!
Newly remodeled with new mattresses, curtains, sheets, swimming pool, beautiful gardens, full time staff, secure parking, free wifi, lots of extras!

Two air conditioned King Master Suites & Upstairs Loft with 2 twin beds. Kitchen, Great Room
All with views of the Caribbean Sea.
Always free WiFi everywhere.
Why do so many guests come back time and again?
Because for 18 years Casa Playa Maya has been the perfect and perhaps most popular family vacation spot on the Riviera Maya!

All rentals include: BBQ, Beach Chairs & Palapas, Kayaks, Daily Housekeeping, free WiFi, Parking

Private and secure gated community, a world apart yet just 10 minutes to both Tulum and Akumal on the Riviera Maya.


Casa Playa Maya is a wonderful Beachfront Villa located about halfway between Tulum and Akumal, Mexico on the Riviera Maya.
It is just about an hour south of Cancun. Located on tranquil Soliman Bay, it boasts a private setting directly on quiet, secure gated and protected Soliman Bay.
Yet it is not entirely isolated, as there are a number of neighboring houses along the beach and a charming and casual restaurant just a stroll down the beach.

Casa Playa Maya is full of sun and light. Large sliding-glass doors lead to a covered patio right on the beach. Sunlight streams in many large windows. Yet the traditional Mayan architectural structure blends into this wonderful piece of Caribbean Mexico. Perfection!

This entire vacation rental is fitted with air conditioning in the bedrooms. There is a full kitchen with appliances. There are two bedrooms each with King-Size beds, and a Loft with two twin beds that can join to make a king. Maximum occupancy is six guests but we have an inflatable Queen for extra kids on the floor.

Excellent snorkeling can be found right out front of the villa, dive facilities are very nearby. You will love exploring our great Coral Reefs and Cenotes.

This area is world famous for eco-tourism and Soliman Bay is noted for bird watching, especially in the large mangrove preserve adjacent. Less than 10 minutes from shopping and dining. It is truly magical here!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
Casa Playa Maya was developed in the PRIME location - protected in the centre of this reef-fringed, protected bay. Year round you will enjoy gentle cool sea breezes, sandy beaches and warm water temperatures. Some folks come every year with extended family to cool off in our tranquil turquoise bay. This is a kids paradise, better than Summer Camp we are told by lots of kids and parents too! Central Bay Lot, sand entrance. Not rocky. the very best location on Soliman Bay.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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.
