About the Property
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5-6
Since so much of life here is about spending time outdoors, you can enjoy your morning coffee on either of the two private terraces. The downstairs terrace, located off the living room or master bedroom, offers a more cozy outdoor space. But you may also find yourself upstairs on the expansive rooftop terrace enjoying the view out over the Mayan jungle or soaking up the afternoon sun in your private Jacuzzi (or hot tub for those chilly jungle evenings). There is plenty of room and seating to have a large dinner party, enjoy drinks sitting at your bar, or to sit quietly and gaze at the stars.
The spacious main floor features two bedrooms with ensuite baths, a comfortable living room, a dining area accommodating six at the table and four more at the bar, and a fabulous contemporary kitchen with brand new stainless steel appliances, granite counters and double sink. Stacking washer and dryer are situated directly off the kitchen in a very large utility closet and pantry with more than enough room to store four sets of golf clubs.
The master bedroom features a king size bed (convertible to two singles), ample closet space with organizers and a comfortable private ensuite bathroom. The guest bedroom can easily be configured to accommodate up to three single beds or a king size bed, has a very large closet with organizer, and a second ensuite bathroom. There are also two additional inflatable mattresses and electric inflator located in the storeroom on the rooftop terrace.
Each room has independent AC with temperature controls. The living room features a 47' wall-mounted LCD flat screen TV with satellite cable offering over 100 channels in English and Spanish, plus a DVD player and a wide variety of movies. There is a 37' flat screen TV in the Master bedroom, also connected to the satellite cable. High-speed wireless internet is provided free of charge.
There is a large swimming pool on the grounds, and a short walk on a lighted path through the jungle brings you to the nearby Wellness Center which features a brand-new restaurant, lap pools, spa, massage, a well-equipped workout room and yoga classes. With three walls of floor-to-ceiling exterior glass, the yoga room sits nestled in a limestone ravine surrounded by vibrant jungle and the magical energy that the Mayan ancestors found in this place. Depending on the schedule, you may also be able to take Spanish lessons and Salsa dancing lessons.
Guests also have access to four amazing five-star resort hotels on the Bahia Principe property. The resorts offer scuba, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, bikes, spas, shopping, a brand-new casino, and many restaurants, bars and nightly entertainment shows. You may dine at any of the resort hotel buffets or specialty restaurants for a discounted fee. Pick up the free trolley at the Wellness Center and ride across our private bridge to the exclusive resort areas, including the private beach for Tao guests.
Guests at Casa Soluna can also enjoy reduced rates at the Riviera Maya Golf Course, an impressive and renowned project designed by Robert Trent Jones II. The stunning 27-hole course is carefully and respectfully placed within the natural landscape, in a balance of wild jungle, natural lakes and water features, and exposed ancient limestone. There is an 18-hole Championship Par 72 course, plus an Executive 9-hole Par 3 course. This beautiful and challenging golf course is considered to be the third best in the country and many important tournaments are hosted here throughout the year.
Professionally managed, with 24 hour security and gated entrance, Casa Soluna is the perfect place to bring your family for an unforgettable vacation in the world-renowned Riviera Maya!

This is a really important point for us. We are both very sensitive to smoke residue, so we respectfully ask that guests not smoke inside or anywhere where breeze can blow smoke into our home.

Here are a few things of which you should be aware prior to booking.
First, bear in mind that you are visiting the jungle, which is home to all sorts of animals and insects, including mosquitos. Please be sure to bring mosquito repellent, and if you plan to be outdoors early in the morning or near sunset, be sure to wear clothing which covers your arms, legs and ankles, and use the repellent. Tao and Bahia Principe have instituted an aggressive mosquito control program, which includes daily spraying of non-toxic (to humans and pets) insecticide, usually around 5pm. We recommend that you keep the doors and windows closed while spraying is occurring; listen for the hum of the jet fogger. Also, you may sometimes notice a small lizard inside the condo. Don’t be alarmed; it’s a gecko, which we love because it eats mosquitos!
Second, our condo is not directly on the water. Therefore, you will need some mode of transportation to go to the beach. There are shuttles available; check with our on-site property manager, but we generally recommend a rental car. This also makes trips to attractions, grocery stores, and area restaurants a lot easier.
No smoking, please! Smoking in the unit will result in the loss of all or part of your damage deposit! Please do not leave discarded smoking materials lying about, and bear in mind that the sand-filled planters on the rooftop terraces are not there as ashtrays, but as holders for the tiki torches located in the storeroom.
Small pets considered; please contact us with your particular details.
Finally, as noted elsewhere, we do occasionally experience interruptions in electric, water or internet service. Mexico has put forth a great deal of money and effort in improving the nation's infrastructure, especially along this stretch of coast, and services continue to improve. However, visitors from more advanced countries should bear in mind that services may not be quite as complete or as reliable as those to which they are accustomed.

Casa Soluna is located only minutes from the ancient ruins of Tulum and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Divers can explore the Great Mesoamerican Coral Barrier Reef system, the second largest coral reef on the planet, or take a short ferry ride to Cozumel and experience world-famous drift diving on Palancar reef or the breathtaking wall at the island's south end.
Only 20 minutes north is Play del Carmen where you can shop on 5th Avenue, catch the ferry to Cozumel or just enjoy the active night life. Several fabulous theme parks, including Xplor, Xcaret, Xel-ha and Hidden World, are only a short drive away. History buffs may want to take a day trip to the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza, a World Heritage site.
Nearby Akumal has several quaint restaurants and bars to explore, as well as dive shops and laid-back beaches. Tulum is the hot spot for chic yoga retreats, bikini boot camp, film and fashion festivals, scuba-diving adventures, and trendy beachfront eateries. And Playa Del Carmen’s famous 5th Avenue features dozens of excellent restaurants, bars and the best shopping on the Riviera Maya.
Featuring the turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean, white sandy beaches and the ancient Mayan culture it's easy to see why the The Riviera Maya has become one of the most internationally acclaimed destinations.

Why the Owner Chose Akumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
We bought this condo pre-construction after touring the site and seeing first-hand what the developer was doing. We love being near the ocean, and the ocean here is breathtakingly beautiful. There is plenty to do, between the nearby attractions, historic ruins, diving and snorkeling, and plenty of room to lounge if you don't feel like doing much of anything. There are shows and live music at the Bahia Principe resorts, and an abundance of wonderful food at fabulous local restaurants. The climate is warm, but there is breeze from the ocean on most days and the nights are balmy and wonderful; more than once we have fallen asleep under the stars on our upstairs couches.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We have tried to make this vacation condo unlike a vacation condo, but more like your home in this fabulous Caribbean paradise! We have furnished our vacation home with all the little amenities that make our Casa Soluna more than just a comfortable hotel room. We strive to offer you the best possible experience by including instructions, tips and recommendations for your stay. We offer flexible rental agreements, from as little as 3 days up to a full year. We are always happy to chat with you about our condo and your special needs for your short or extended stay with us. Come and experience the Tao inspired lifestyle! Nuestra Casa es Su Casa! Clint and Rosine Dougherty
