About Cheryl or Dean Lovberg

Dean and Cheryl are the owners of the Casa Tortuga Beach Villa. Dean and Cheryl live in White Rock, British Columbia and are both Realtors with Remax 2000 Realty. Our children 2 boys and one girl are all grown up and starting there own families. We have two beautiful grandchildren one girl and one boy. We have been traveling and looking for a piece of Paradise since 2005 finally we have found it. Casa Tortuga is such a beautiful villa on an absolutely stunning bay. We are excited to share our home with guests from all over the world.

Cheryl or Dean Lovberg purchased this house in 2014

Why Cheryl or Dean Lovberg chose Quintana Roo

We chose Casa Tortuga while visiting friends who live in Tulum, We had looked at other homes on the bay and other locations in the area. We fell in love with Soliman Bay. On one of our many day trips we were visiting friends that live on the Bay, walking along the Beach after a great lunch at Chimikos we walked by Casa Tortuga and Dean said ' Now that's the house we should buy!' with 40 meters of beach front, seawall and beautiful natural landscape. It did take us a year to finally complete the purchase. We are very Happy with our choice.

What makes this house unique

Soliman Bay has so much to offer from relaxing in your hammock/ lounge chair under the beach palapa to snorkeling, swimming, kayaking or paddle boarding. The Villa is spacious and comfortable with large patio areas and decks. With 4 large bedrooms perfect for families traveling together or larger groups the layout allows the best of both worlds inside and out. The grounds have been landscaped with palm trees, hibiscus, almond, banana and other native plants.

We all travel with friends and family to Casa Tortuga as much as possible. We enjoy snorkeling and swimming on the bay relaxing by the pool, the beautiful beaches and funky one-world feel and character of Tulum, traveling and exploring Maya ruins, swimming and snorkeling in numerous cenotes located nearby and viewing the myriad of wildlife in the area.

Not fancy but awesome location. Worked good for all of us.

  • 4 of 5

Big storm brought in a LOT of seagrass and pieces of coral and rocks, so the beach wasn't as nice as I expected but that is Nature. Loved the sandy outside part of the house and enjoyed kayaking and paddle boarding with the equipment they have at the house. House keepers are very kind and honest. My vacation would have been perfect if.......I hadn't been robbed ! NO, NOT in the house, they opened our car while in the store coming from the airport and stole my back pack full of personal docs ,Id's and $ and another piece of luggage. This action made my dreamed vacation a NIGHTMARE which is still ongoing. Spent my days getting an emergency passport for all cancelling accounts, filling police reports etc. It is a beautiful place but PLEASE be very careful with your belongings and NEVER leave valuables in the car. Right now I'm very angry and sad but maybe I will return sometime. Good Luck.

Owner's Response: Monica, It's very unfortunate you had your back pack stolen out of your rental vehicle, it is never safe to leave valuables in a vehicle unattended. Samuel and his crew did their very best to clean up after Tropical Storm Franklin made landfall in Tulum, thankfully it was not a hurricane. We do hope you will return someday as it is a beautiful location and the house is very comfortable for family and friends. Regards Cheryl

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice time - the seaweed was a little crazy but something that the property owners had never seen. The home was perfect for our family getaway. The care takers - Samuel and Norma made our vacation the BEST. They are excellent cooks and they came and cleaned and made our rooms every day. Without them there, it would not have been the vacation it was. The home is right on the beach and the views are incredible.

Your own Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome place! The pictures really can't express how amazing the view is from this house. Walking out of your room every morning is breathtaking!

The service was wonderful, Samuel is an excellent host and caretaker.

Do yourself a favor and let Samuel and Maria cook (at least) a couple meals while your there, the food is just as good as eating out and super affordable! Samuel makes great drinks too!

The one item that was a concern was there was quite a large amount of sea kelp and other miscellaneous that washed up on the beach that attracted quite a few biting flies. I am sure this has a lot to do with the season, but it's good to be prepared. In my opinion, Soliman Bay is really made for snorkeling anyway, the beach is beautiful, but even without the kelp it has coral and rocks and is not best for body surfing or playing in the waves.

There are lounge chairs by the sparkling clean pool to sunbathe, fine sand on the property to build castles and also paddle boards or kayaks to take out if you want (so you don't have to rent). You are never short of something to do. We had four kids here from ages 1.5 to 13 and four very restless adults and not one of us was bored the whole time!

We will definitely visit Casa Tortuga again!

Thank you for the wonderful time and memories!

Amazing Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time with extended family (6 adults, 4 children). I can't express how wonderful Samuel was, from day one (and Norma was a wonderful housekeeper). We had a water issue one day and he was attentive until it was solved (and I was emailing the owner initially who was also wonderfully responsive). And his cooking was amazing- I think we asked him to cook most of our dinners- and there was plenty left for lunch. He even cleaned and cooked the fish my sons' caught one day. Casa Tortuga's location was perfect for our day adventures- nothing was more than a 10min drive. The only downside was the amount of seaweed that came on shore. Samuel and his men tried to clear it daily, but it was an impossible feat. By the end of the week the smell was overpowering. That said, we still took the kayaks out and went snorkeling beyond the seaweed beds. I am not sure this is a year-round issue though- perhaps a mix of windy weather and time of year?

This was our first time renting a house for our family vacation, and it was a great experience. If we ever return to Riviera Maya, I would be happy to stay here again!

gorgeous and just the break we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

Well, in short a wonderful experience! Samuel a great host, quick to fix everything and makes a mean plate of fajitas! kayaks are wonderful as well, great way to explore the ocean. Just cannot say enough about opening the doors and being able to take 10 steps to the ocean. Amazing! Great location too, definitely try the restaurant located in the Jashida hotel, amazing! and Bob's grocery a cute funky little place too, both 5 minute walk from the house. We spent our last night in Cancun and I definitely prefer the quiet, peaceful nature of Soliman Bay. It is rather windy there, but perfect to cool down as the weather was HOT when we were there. Definitely go check out swimming with dolphins at the Solerus hotel and Xen Ha, both super close!!! Definitely recommend renting a car as it makes it much easier to get around, and it is really affordable. Thanks for the great memories, and the wonderful vacation we got to have with Casa Tortuga as our home base.

Car: recommended

Soliman Bay has so much to offer from relaxing in your hammock/ lounge chair under the beach palapa or around the pool to snorkeling, swimming, kayaking or paddleboarding.

We enjoy snorkeling and swimming in the bay, the beautiful beaches and funky one-world feel and character of Tulum, traveling and exploring Maya ruins, swimming and snorkeling in numerous cenotes located nearby and viewing the myriad of wildlife in the area. We are a short drive to the Tulum Ruins and about a 50 min. drive to the Coba Ruins which makes for a great trip they have great cenotes as well. You can swim with the Dolphins, visit Xal Ha, Xplor etc. Please contact Cheryl if you have questions about activities and attractions.

Our on site Caretaker (and chef) Samuel and Mauricio are there to help you with anything you may need. Samuel's English is quite good and Mauricio does speak english both with many years of experience in hospitality and the service industry.
