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 Tulum

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.

A delightful family retreat

  • 5 of 5

The property provided a wonderful setting and base for a family retreat bringing together parts of the family from the US, UK and France. Good shared space and plenty of individual space for people to be together or have some time alone. A beautiful view over the water in a well-equipped house that allowed us to cook ourselves or use the staff from the house to prepare meals. Very helpful owners who were responsive in the renting process. Equally well equipped with kayaks, paddle boats, etc and a nice pool on the grounds. All in all, a good location for our family get together.

Incredible home incredible location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with the family for 5 days and couldn't have asked for anything more. Kayak and snorkeling right outside the house. Samuel the house attendant is also a very good cook if you choose to let him make a meal. If we come back to this area we will stay here.

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Woooow!! This was my first impression stepping onto this property!


- We cannot say enough about Samuel! He was there to greet us when we arrived and had a wonderful dinner & margaritas ready for us! (His margaritas are AMAZING!) For a small fee, he even pre-stocked the fridge for us with some basic food necessities. His English is great & he was able to help us with SO many inquiries about the area & even hooked my husband & son up with an unforgettable fishing trip.


- Super sweet lady! She doesn't speak as much English, but was there daily keeping the house clean & tidy and also helped Samuel with any cooking requests (she lives just in the little casita behind the big house next door). We also loved her little dog Chimuelo <3

The Grounds/Beach/Pool:

- The lot is very large, sandy & well kept. The beach is not swim-able but great for seashell hunting and gazing at during your morning coffee. If you walk farther up the bay, the beach gets better & better for swimming/snorkeling (it really is stunning!). NOTE: Be sure to check the Kayaks for any damage/holes before taking them out to be safe. If you go out in the yard at night with a flashlight, there are hermit crabs big & small everywhere! SO much fun!! The kids absolutely loved the pool and were in it every single day (FYI the pool is not heated, but perfect for a hot day).

The House:

- Is Beautiful!! There were 8 of us in total (4 Adults/4 kids) and there was tons of space. The kitchens were well stocked and we made great use out of both of them. All of the bedrooms & bathrooms are equally as nice in my opinion depending on your needs (the lower rooms/bathrooms are nice if you want to be closer to the pool). We had plenty of towels for both the pool and for showering for the week (hang to dry & reuse).

Getting around:

- We rented a car from Alamo and had zero issues (just make sure you do your homework on insurance policy’s) I purchased collision insurance through Expedia and the 3rd party liability insurance was included in the rental cost already. We checked out the Coba ruins, Punta Laguna (monkey reserve), Akumal Beach, Tulum, and had an amazing time everywhere we visited!

Cheryl was wonderful and quick to respond to all of my emails & questions - thank you so much! We hope to be back again someday very soon!

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.

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.
