About the property

5 Bedroom Villa sleeps up to 12

The beach level of Maya Jardin has four deluxe, air conditioned, ocean side suites with king size beds in three suites and two queen beds in one suite; each with artistic French doors opening out onto the pool deck. All 5 bedrooms have their own ensuite bath rooms and all bedrooms have magnificent beach views. Enjoy meals on the main level in the large comfortable kitchen and dining area or in the palapa covered outdoor kitchen and dining area next to the soothing Mayan pyramid fountain.

Luxurious, stylish and romantic, the second and third floors of Maya Jardin offer even more amenities including an office, spectacular living area, hacienda-style bedroom with a King bed stepping onto a 45ft. long terrace overlooking the sparkling Caribbean. 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!!!

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

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.

Wonderful getaway in the sun!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing place to get out of the cold for a while!! The house was spacious and clean and accommodating. This would be a great spot for an adult getaway or to bring the family. The owner, Stan, was a wonderful resource as far as answering questions about the different things to do in the area. Just hanging at the house was our favorite thing to do. Between snorkeling in the bay, sitting by the pool or having a massage, we found ourselves relaxing almost immediately in this peaceful environment. The staff is friendly and helpful. Mauricio is a great cook and will be happy to provide meals as far as you arrange that in advance. All in all, we loved our visit to Maya Jardin and will definitely come again!!

Can't Wait to Get Back!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to Maya Jardin and it was every bit as enjoyable as the previous two. The property is incredible and extremely well kept by Maria and Mauricio. Lying under the new palapa in the hammocks on the beach was a great place for siesta after snorkeling on the reef. Plenty of offsite activities from swimming in the cenotes to wandering the shops of Tulum are wonderful day-fillers; but the best action is an evening meal prepared by Mauricio in the kitchen palapa preceded by a refreshing margarita. Dealing with Stan, the owner, was thorough and pleasant as always and the level of service from his staff is as good as it gets. An excellent experience that exceeded our expectations. A great place to wind down from a busy world. We will be back!

Paradise on Soliman Bay

  • 5 of 5

Wow. I cannot begin to describe what a wonderful experience it is to have a week at Maya Jardin. The setting is unparalleled and provides the respite and revitalization we all seek from the sea. There is a magnetic force on the upstairs balcony that cannot be escaped except to swim or kayak to the reef for the outstanding snorkeling. The wonders of Akumal, Tulum, the nearby ruins and cenotes could hardly lure us off the porch where we were enveloped by the serenity of the light changing on the water and the sound of the waves.

Tropical fish and turtles are visible in abundance as one swims in the bay a few steps away from the house.

The gracious staff is more than hospitable. Mauricio, Maria, and Norma attend to every need without being intrusive. They guide you toward the best of the local experiences, prepare better meals than the renowned restaurants of the area, and keep an immaculate household and garden. Mauricio is also an excellent bar tender.

The house itself is elegant but comfortable and without pretention. Every room is well appointed and has an ocean view.

The Maya Jardin experience is such that I expect to return at least once every year. Many thanks to the owner, Stan, who makes the logistics of a stay in this beautiful place so simple and straightforward.

Magnificent villa and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This is your perfect home away from home! The listing description is accurate, but doesn't begin to describe how truly wonderful the villa and location are for a restful and relaxing time in Mexico.

Upon arrival, we were greeted by the staff, Mauricio and Maria, who are both amazing hosts. They showed us the property and made us feel like family for our entire stay and were always available when we needed something and were understated when we were enjoying ourselves. Mauricio speaks and understands English well and we had no problems with communication whatsoever. There is nothing that this property lacks: the chef's kitchen in the villa has everything that you'd want if you enjoy cooking your own meals; the bedrooms and baths are immaculate for a good night sleep; the pool is lovely with a palapa next to it so that you can keep an eye on the kids while lounging in the cool breezes out of the sun; kayaks, paddle boards, and snorkeling equipment are provided at no additional cost for trips to the reef.

Even though the kitchen has everything you'll need for meal preparation, I highly recommend that you request at least some meals be prepared by Mauricio; he's an amazing chef! You won't be disappointed. I've eaten at many of the local restaurants but meals prepared by Mauricio are better than any that you'll find anywhere! I especially enjoy his ceviche and other seafood dishes that he prepares, along with some Mexican specialties such as chile rellenos. He does all the shopping and preparation so that you can just enjoy your stay at the villa even more. I highly recommend that you use his services during your stay.

Another bonus during our stay was the presence of the owner, who has a private casita on the property next door to the main villa. Stan was helpful without being intrusive and is extremely knowledgeable about the local environs if you need good advice about local attractions. I highly recommend visits to a cenote and ruins; they are both highlights of the Maya Riviera. Stan is highly professional and makes the booking process easy and seamless.

I recommend this property to friends and family with the highest enthusiasm and without reservations.
