Casa Del Sol
Picture yourself in the exciting tropics in your own luxury villa, with sun-kissed skies and the sparkling blue Caribbean Sea nearby. Feel your body succumb to the cool ocean breeze as it gently cascades over you, draining your stresses away! It’s not a dream! It’s Casa Del Sol!
Casa Del Sol is a tropical delight, full of Caribbean color and charm located on the southern most point of the Caribbean in Mexico. The ocean front villa overlooks the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. This 3 unit villa is completely private. Wake up in the mornings to a gorgeous sunrise and fall asleep at night listening to the gentle seaside.
On the Beach level, the breezy bedrooms are located on either ends of the villa for maximum privacy for your group. The rooms are spacious with a queen size bed, single trundle bed, a 7 foot couch made from local hard woods, reading chairs and dinning room table for 4. Feel free to hang from the walls in a hammock to enjoy the flowing breezes as you take an afternoon siesta.
Take an exciting swim out front in the coral patches visiting with all the tropical fish, lobsters, spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, and many more. The best way to describe the snorkeling in front is to imagine yourself looking into one of the most impressive stocked large salt water fish tanks around and next you know, you are in it. It doesn't get any better than this.
All rooms are equipped with ceiling fans and have stunning seaside views. You will not find any televisions, nor will you want one since there are so many things to do at the house or nearby.
There are many miles of beach to comb searching for the largest/brightest conch shell. Kayaking out to the barrier reef, biking down the beach road, tossing horse shoes, observing many types of birds, star gazing at night, or just relaxing on the beach with a book is a great way to spend your vacation.
Luxury abounds as the living area is open and breezy and fully equipped for your relaxing enjoyment.
The patios and verandas provide panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea, and spectacular Caribbean sunrises. In the mornings you will see the sun rise while looking out into the Caribbean and in the evenings looking back in the lagoon the sun will set.
Other units are available or use the entire house for your vacation. Please inquire.

Met our expectations!
Casa del Sol was lovely! We had the beach to ourselves and the snorkeling was really great. Lots of fish, a variety of corals and also rays. Close in reef just past the sea grass was the best.
The mangrove complex was not accessible unfortunately, as we had hoped to take a kayak into it.
The unit was cozy, clean and well provisioned. There were also plenty of paperbacks to read, bikes to ride and plenty of loungers and hammocks for relaxing. Stacy the caretaker was helpful and pleasant. The beach in front of the home was clean, unlike the rest of the beach areas in Xcalak. Because of that, I don’t recommend walks along it due to seaweed and trash washed up.
Brent was very responsive and helpful. He checked in on us a couple times via text to see how we were doing.
The view from the roof was incredible and sunsets and sunrises amazing!
This is definitely a must stay for those who want to be away from the maddening crowds, and don’t mind “roughing it” a bit. I.e. off grid so be mindful of electric and water useage. Nice to have solar power and we were never without power or water. Internet worked great!
We hope to visit again!
Great place to get away. Solar powered, great views from awesome rooftop where you can see the stars at night with hardly any light pollution and see the ocean and lagoon during the day.
Great snorkeling right off the beach . Fishing if you want it..
Truck comes by almost daily with fresh fruits and veggies. Try the Pibill (sp?) Mayan pulled pork with spices.
Nice house, great scenery, no civilization and in the jungle... I'd always come back in a heart beat
The house is beautiful!
The bed sheets great, nice mattress, nice kitchen… everything works, there was even ice in the refrigerator!
Nice it has kayaks.
Great coral and fish to view right in front of the house.
You’re out in the jungle… no civilization, I loved this.
Just remember to take your own food.
Scenery… the best!
Super helpful caretakers
I had a wonderful time with my son at this house. Beach was fantastic and clean. The room was comfortable. Xcalak was just the right amount of quiet. Do yourself a favor and get out to dive the banco chinchorro, gorgeous!! The caretakers helped us out of a pickle when the mahahual gas station shut down for a week.
We'll be back!
Wonderful house on a beautiful beach! My family of 7 rented the upper unit, plus one of the lower units for 5 days. House was well stocked with purified water, toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, clean towels, etc. We shopped in Playa del Carmen (or Tulum would have worked)for all of our food and drinks. We were so well supplied that we didn't even venture into Xcalak, but we could have tried a restaurant there - nothing fancy! We also enjoyed the delivery of the fruit truck a couple of times. We even were able to buy fresh meat off the truck. We came for the ocean, and it didn't disappoint. The beach in front of the house is kept clean and raked and is a great place to enjoy in one of the many lounge chairs. The ocean is very shallow - not a great place to just go for a swim. However, it would be very safe for young children, with water shoes on, to enjoy. We came specifically to snorkel the reef. Brought our own gear, swam out once or twice a day, and enjoyed the show. The rooftop is open to all guests (there are three different units that can be rented). The view is amazing - ocean to the east, and lagoon to the west. You can watch the sunrise or sunset over water. Rebecca and Conor, who are house-sitting for the owner and acting as caretakers, are wonderful! They were quick to greet us when we arrived, helped us unload, gave us space when we needed, but were there to chat and share stories when wanted. They let us know when the food truck was there, and even brought us home-made chips, guacamole, and salsas one evening. They are a treasure. I hope you get to meet them before they move on. This house would be a great property for a large family to rent and enjoy a vacation together. My one bit of advice, make sure you're clear on the directions for the house before you drive there, as you will lose cell service as you get close (the house does have decent internet however.) We struggled finding the beach road once we got to Xcalak. It was getting dark, we were exhausted and cranky after the long drive with 7 people in the van, and we took a wrong turn and almost made it to Belize (although we would have had to cross some water to get there!) And, speaking of cars, you definitely need to rent a car in order to be able to enjoy this house!
Awesome place next to coral reef
Very clean and well taking carte off, this remote villa worth the drive! I Would consider go back to this place!
