Additional buildings in the compound include a large caretaker house, laundry facility, additional gardens.

Amazing Sights at Tulum and Sian Kaan: Tulum, (about 8 miles from Maya Jardin) is the combination of a beach coastline, archaeological zone and shopping area. If you want a little taste of the Mayan history and a wonderful view, Tulum is your place. Shops line the main street with colorful restaurants and excellent Mexican food, Italian, and seafood.

The Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve has incredible beaches, pristine mangrove estuaries, and you can drive all the way to the little fishing village of Punta Allen.

Coba has fewer tourists and 2 new cenotes: The ancient Mayan ruins and village of Coba are located about a 40 minute drive west of Maya Jardin. Coba was the capital of the largest Late Classic empire in the Northern Lowlands. Coba is a mammoth ruined city , with one of the tallest pyramids in Mexico. This archaeological site sits amid 5 small, shallow lakes and is very impressive. Coba is known for its great length of occupation. The earliest stele dates to a.d. 623 and Coba was occupied until the late Postclassic times, around the 14th century.

There are two unspoiled cenotes 5 miles away that have just been opened to the public. The water is pure and refreshing with stalactites and even a diving platform.

About Stan

We live in Texas but love the beaches of Mexico and especially the crystal waters of the Caribbean. Soliman Bay is where we relax, chill, and enjoy the fantastic Mexican and Mayan culture. There is so much to do in the area that there is never enough time at Maya Jardin.

Stan purchased this villa in 2014

Why Stan chose Tulum

This property was perfect for a large family and friends to congregate and enjoy the fantastic beach.

What makes this villa unique

Every bedroom and every living area has a direct view of the sparkling Caribbean. Our professionally equipped garden kitchen and dining area is the perfect place for our Chef to prepare your outstanding meals.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was simply amazing! The house is perfect and the grounds are exactly what we were looking for! 10 of us went down for our wedding and had the most amazing time. The location is perfect, the snorkeling was amazing. The location of the house puts you 10 minutes away from Tulum and no more than 30 minutes away from a dozen cenote caves, Zel-ha, the ruins, everything real Mexico has to offer. This is not in the touristy area of Playa or Cancun. It is real Mexico with great culture! The actual house was immaculate. It was right on the beach with no real neighbors. You could walk miles on pure sugar sand if you choose or just grab the kayaks and paddle out into the bay. The bathrooms were upscale with very nice fixtures. The bedrooms have dual fans as well as a new ac unit and keep things beyond cool if you so choose! The house was stocked well with cooking items and dishes. The pool was beautiful. The design of the house was great and so cool! It was perfect! The grounds keeper Mauricio was amazing. His English is a solid c+ and was helpful in everyway! I would strongly suggest having him cook for you at least a few nights if not every night! The prices are fair and his guacamole is out of this world!!! The maids Norma & Maria were so kind and did an excellent job everyday! The location is as safe as can be with guards at the entrance and nightly full time patrols on the roads and beach. I am looking forward to returning with a full house of friends and family! Sherry (the owner) was beyond professional in our booking and was so helpful! Thank you for making our wedding week so perfect!!! The only issue was we didn't want to leave!!!

Spectacular Place with Excellent Service

  • 5 of 5

This is one spectacular place!! It was perfect for our extended family of 8 adults and 2 children celebrating a special birthday. The pictures do not even come close to accurately reflecting the beauty of this wonderful beach house We just loved the beach side pool and the kids never wanted to leave. The warm January breezes coming off the Caribbean set the stage for an absolutely perfect week.

The staff at Maya Jardin was amazingly attentive but discrete at the same time. We would gather in the late morning for breakfast and when we returned to our rooms Maria had performed an amazing clean up. Mauricio always had a smile on his face and is an excellent chef. If you don't have Mauricio do some cooking for you you will miss a special treat. The bacon wrapped shrimp were to die for!!

The owner, Stan was wonderful to work with. He kept answering our many question and gave all the information about how do do things and what to do Booking Maya Jardin with Stan and planning a complicated vacation was an absolute breeze

I just don't know how this vacation could have gotten any better!! It was a truly MAGICAL EXPERIENCE we will never forget.

Owner's Response: Thanks Jon for a wonderful review. I am so glad that Maya Jardin met and exceeded all of your expectations. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family at Maya Jardin and it was my pleasure hosting such an important birthday gathering. Please think of us in the future if you ever wish to return to our pristine slice of paradise. Stan

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Maya Jardin is the second-to-last home on a long bay, meaning maximum privacy and seclusion. We arrived after a long day of travel and grocery shopping and were greeted by Stan and Mauricio, who let us know what we needed to know for a safe and fun stay (not that we needed it too much––Stan was extremely communicative in the months leading up to our stay, sending along any info necessary and even providing some good recommendations regarding transportation and groceries).

We were a large party with ages ranging from 27 to 88 and the size of the home really allows for everyone to do what they please. The bedrooms were lovely, bathrooms kept immaculate. The bay is remains fairly shallow throughout and is generally not too rocky, which is great for snorkeling. Mauricio cooked us four amazing meals...easily beats any restaurant in every sense. Sunsets from the roof deck became a fun activity every night...I could go on, but basically it was an amazing adventure for all.

Our family travels together each year and after every trip, we always ask each other, "Where should we go next year?" Never before has anybody said, "When we come back next year"...until this time. A success in every sense!

We spent Christmas week 2017 at Maya Jardin. It was perfect for our family of 10. Everyone had all the space they needed. The five bedrooms are ensuite and large. All the communal spaces are roomy. We fell out of our bedrooms into the pool, then onto the beach and then into the water. Although there were adjacent properties, it felt private and was quiet.

A highlight was Mauricio - chef extraordinaire, purveyor of anything we wanted from a van to groceries to mohitos.

He made us a different delicious dinner every night. We loved his flambeed desserts. He was up every morning raking the beach and sweeping the patio. His family made sure the house was immaculate. Although it was expensive, we felt very indulged

Stan, the owner, was enormously helpful. He answered all our emailed questions quickly and even phoned before hand to make sure we had everything we needed and to ensure we took beach shoes as the beach is rocky - but the reef is beautiful and even our 6 year old snorkeled.

Our uncivilized grandchildren were bored by the Mayan ruins, but loved the Selva Maya Eco Adventure. We went down 7 zip lines, leapt into cenotes, rock climbed and rappelled and then had a jungle lunch.

I know Stan has made more improvements in the last month - go if you can!

Great week in Soliman Bay

  • 5 of 5

Great house in a great location on Soliman Bay. The beach, pool and location close to Tulum kept us as busy (or not busy) as we wanted to be. Caretaker/chef Mauricio and his family did an amazing job taking care of large group (6 adults/6 kids and a baby), going the extra mile for special events (new years and even a birthday piñata) Big plusses of this house are the service as mentioned, comfortable for a large group, nice well maintained beach and great snorkeling right from beach or short kayak ride to reef. Minuses are the beach is not great for swimming due to coral (short walk in either direction for better swimming)

Great week at Maya Jardin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Maya Jardin! The house was gorgeous and very well-maintained. There was plenty of space for all of us in well-appointed bedrooms and bathrooms. The caretaker and chef Mauricio was wonderful. He made us dinner nightly and it was delicious every single night. One of our guests had a birthday during our trip, and he got a cake and set up a pinata :) He was always available for questions and suggestions.

Soliman Bay is beautiful, and the reef was great for snorkeling. Several of us took the kayak out to the reef every day, and some of us saw some turtles in the sea grass closer to shore. We could not have had a more relaxing vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you Rachel for taking the time to review Maya Jardin. I am so glad you and your group had a wonderful vacation. Mauricio prides himself on making fantastic memories for my guests and it sounds like he succeeded. Seeing and snorkeling with the turtles in Soliman Bay is always special experience. It was a pleasure hosting your group and I hope you return soon. All the best, Stan

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 just returned from a great week at Maya Jardin- Where to start! First off, on an earlier trip this year to Mexico passing through the area I emailed the owner Stan if we could do a site inspection and he graciously gave us a tour and treated us to a delicious breakfast, so I knew we were in for a great week. I have booked around 10 other vacation villas in the US and the Caribbean so I have become quite particular re: bedroom layout, bathrooms, views, pool, amenities, etc. This villa met all our needs. Everyone had a view of the ocean from their bedroom, the pool was spacious and overlooked the ocean, the house furniture was well appointed, comfortable but not pretentious, private bathroom in all 5 bedrooms, etc. The inside living area was spacious and open - truly everything the pictures show and more. One of the greatest attractions of this house is that there are 2 dining areas. The house itself has a kitchen and dining table with view out to the ocean. On the other side (garden side) of the house is a dining palapa where dinner is served so you actually feel like you are going out to a local restaurant without having to dress up or worry about driving. If you want to cook yourselves you have the privacy of the house kitchen and if you want the meals made, all you have to do is tell Mauricio. Mauricio is the house manager and chef - he and his family are the crown jewel of the house - taking care of everything with ease and staying completely out of the way. Somehow the rooms and house were magically cleaned without our even noticing. When we wanted breakfast or lunch cooked by Mauricio and staff all we did was plan it the day before and tell him what time we wanted to be served - it could not have been easier. I must also say that we enjoyed sunrise every morning from our room and sunset every night from the roof top observation area. There is a spiral staircase above the living room that takes you to a loft area with a half door (ok you need to bend your head a bit to get through the door but no biggie) that leads to the roof deck. It is very minimally adorned, but we went up every night with our drinks in hand to watch sunset which was fantastic. Then we would go back down, shower, and have drinks out on the upper deck, enjoy the breeze/view while waiting for Mauricio to come up and tell us dinner was ready . If you are looking for total no hassle, relaxing experience this is it. Thank you to Stan, Mauricio and staff.

Car: recommended

Located just 1 1/2 hours south of Cancun

are the pristine waters of Soliman Bay. It

has an outer reef that breaks the surf on

windy days, making the area excellent for

snorkeling and kayaking. Serene palms,

tropical fish, coral and white sand set the

stage for your romantic vacation.

Other Activities: Historic Ruins and Cenote Exploration
