We first came to Cancun as harried New York City executives seeking a weekend escape full of sun and sand. On each trip we drove further and further south, eventually falling in love with the area now called the Riviera Maya.
Seeing a piece of property for sale on the beach, we used our dental floss to measure out the length of the site we wanted. We decided to buy it and proceeded to design and furnish our dream house. Since we both had demanding careers, we agreed to rent out our villa several times a year to a few friends.
That was two decade ago. Since then, we have designed and built 13 other villas nearby for people who have similarly fallen under the Mayan spell. Many guests who have rented our villas have become friends — and then fellow villa owners themselves.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2003
Our family, , group was twelve adults two of which were teenagers , and one toddler, normally when we vacation in mexico we stay at all inclusive resorts this time we decided to stay in a home, this turned out to be one of the best vacation decisions ever made. when we arrived, we were greeted by Udi the property owner and his staff, Udi had prepared a wonderful pitcher of margaritas and Philomena had made amazing guacamole. we all began to get acquainted with the house and property everything was perfect, no complaints, everything was clean, the beds were very comfortable, the layout of the villa is very organized and works for everyone, the views from every window are breathtaking! We were fortunate to be there during the nesting and hatching of sea turtles an experience our whole family is still talking about and will never forget! our teenagers and the rest of us enjoyed the kayaks and, Early morning walks on the beach, late evening walks along the beach whether we were all together as a group or just taking time alone, it was a very relaxing and thought provoking experience. It was also wonderful coming into the home everyday to Philomena's guacomole and pico de gallo also finding that every need we possibly had was taken care of by jorge' and xavier, we hardly ever saw them but somehow they kept everything perfect. Our concierge Ali, was so nice and accomodating he answered every phone call i made to his phone no matter the time and accomodated our every wish, he arranged for a deep sea fishing trip that was awesome! We had three dinners and two breakfasts prepared by chef and his crew, everything was delicious, we also had special requests for dishes he had no problem making and they were great. I can't say enough about the staff, chef and, the property everything and everyone exceeded our expectations, if you are contemplating choosing this property for a vacation, our family would all agree you won't be disappointed. Best part of the trip, our family being together in this magical place. Worst part of the trip, having to go to sleep.
a perfect place to spend time with our kids, their spouses, and grandkids a total of 13. The house was excellent with plenty of gathering spaces both inside and outside. Luxurious bedrooms , great kitchen, large dining room and more. Staff was excellent kept the villa and grounds spotless but was not all obtrusive. Great place to relax with family with privacy not afforded at larger resorts. would highly recommend to any extended family or group.
Our family travels to Mexico or to the Caribbean every holiday season and has stayed in many beautiful villas and homes. Casa del Sol Naciente exceeded our expectations with it's lovely layout, beautifully decorated rooms, relaxing pool and beachfront access. The outdoor "swinging" bed became the coveted place to be. The staff was very nice and accommodating to our various queries. The chef and kitchen crew worked extraordinarily hard as we put together our own menus and had dietary issues to deal with. We did a lot of exploring the week we spent in Akumal and it was always refreshing to return to Casa del Sol Naciente.

Thank you Audi and Liz
We spent the best vacation of our lives despite the wicked weather. We had all amenities promised and many extras. The rooms were luxurious, the food was beyond delicious and fresh and healthy. The staff were always available, friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. The views and the property were unbelievable and we enjoyed the many available adjacent ruins/towns and all the amenities they had to offer. This is a slice of Paradise and we strongly recommend Casa del Sol Naciente to anyone planning to come to this part of the world. It is a treat that is not to be missed. Home & Garden quality!
We stayed at the top floor of Casa Del Sol Naciente. The views were fantastic! Ocean and palm trees and great sun rises.
The room was spacious and very clean. The maids did a great job tidying up every day.
Breakfasts were to die for!
The place (villa and grounds) is kept in an excellent order and the team is extremely helpful.
Casa del Sol Naciente is everything in it's description and more. Relax by the pool, swim in the Sea or read on a swinging bed in the shade while the sounds of the waves lull you to sleep. The accommodations were wonderful. Everyone had a great room. Lots of space for yourself, with great areas to congregate with the whole group. We cooked several meals in and found the kitchen very well equipped. We enjoyed a welcoming Margarita on arrival our first day. We also enjoyed freshly made Guacamole and Salsa every afternoon! The housekeeper 'Yennie' kept the Villa tidy and made sure we had everything we needed. The grounds were maintained daily, as well, with the pool cleaned and the sand raked of the never-ending leaves from the beautiful landscaping. The Villa is close enough to so much, allowing you to explore the lagoons, Cenotes, towns and restaurants of the area. This was much nicer than staying in a large resort or hotel. It was more like visiting a friend for the week. Thanks Udi and Liz for creating such a wonderful place. It was our best trip ever to the Riviera Maya and one we hope to repeat very soon.
