Overview

Xcalak Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)

If Sun and Fun is what you are looking for: Look NO further.

Casa Del Sol

Picture yourself in the exciting tropics in your own luxury villa, with sun-kissed skies and the sparkling blue Caribbean Sea nearby. Feel your body succumb to the cool ocean breeze as it gently cascades over you, draining your stresses away! It’s not a dream! It’s Casa Del Sol!

Casa Del Sol is a tropical delight, full of Caribbean color and charm located on the southern most point of the Caribbean in Mexico. The ocean front villa overlooks the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. This 3 bedroom villa is completely private. Wake up in the mornings to a gorgeous sunrise and fall asleep at night listening to the gentle seaside.

On the Beach level, the breezy bedrooms are located on either ends of the villa for maximum privacy for your group. The rooms are spacious with a queen size bed, single trundle bed, a 7 foot couch made from local hard woods, reading chairs and dinning room table for 4. Feel free to hang from the walls in a hammock to enjoy the flowing breezes as you take an afternoon siesta.

Take an exciting swim out front in the coral patches visiting with all the tropical fish, lobsters, spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, and many more. The best way to describe the snorkeling in front is to imagine yourself looking into one of the most impressive stocked large salt water fish tanks around and next you know, you are in it. It doesn't get any better than this.

All rooms are equipped with ceiling fans and have stunning seaside views. You will not find any televisions, nor will you want one since there are so many things to do at the house or nearby.

There are many miles of beach to comb searching for the largest/brightest conch shell. Kayaking out to the barrier reef, biking down the beach road, tossing horse shoes, observing many types of birds, star gazing at night, or just relaxing on the beach with a book is a great way to spend your vacation.

Luxury abounds as the living area is open and breezy and fully equipped for your relaxing enjoyment.

The patios and verandas provide panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea, and spectacular Caribbean sunrises. In the mornings you will see the sun rise while looking out into the Caribbean and in the evenings looking back in the lagoon the sun will set.

Other units are available or use the entire house for your vacation. Please inquire.

Additional Amenities :

- Caretakers on site

- Bottled purified drinking water

- 4 Kayaks – 1 with a plexi glass bottom - free use for guests

Additional Information :

We stayed at Casa Del Sol in December 2014 and fantastic. Our caretaker, Kim, kept the place looking great and was very accommodating. We can't wait to return!

Semana Santa (Easter 2015)

  • 5 of 5

I arrived for Semana Santa and was greeted by Kim the caretaker. He took care to make sure everyone in my party (including my two cats) were comfortable, and went above and beyond in these duties. He made the snorkeling and kayaking experiences easy and very enjoyable. We appreciate his generosity for the entire two week vacation afforded us at Casa del Sol, and Mio Maya.

I was also available to assist Kim in greeting and caring for other vacationers during Semana Santa. By translating the occasional comment or advice in Spanish for two such parties, I was able to ascertain their complete satisfaction and was happy to pass on their excellent reviews as well. Thank you for a lovely vacation, with pristine snorkelling, and an adventure in the wild National Park of Mexico's south.

Best caretaker ever!!!!

Casa del sol is the most beautiful, relaxing place to vacation. Kim, our caretaker, took such great care of us. The place was immaculate! Couldn't ask for more.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Case del Sol numerous times and thoroughly love it every time. The house is equipped with numerous amenities that you would need for a beach vacation and to feel at home, but most importantly it provides the seclusion and beautiful scenery that makes a vacation relaxing. There's something to be said for being the only people around to make footprints in the sand at the beach. Oh, and the snorkeling also can't be beat :) While there is always a caretaker on site, Kim goes above and beyond to not only make sure the house and grounds look great, but he makes you feel welcome and comfortable. He is willing to assist with any questions you may have and goes the extra mile to ensure you have a great vacation. If you want to truly escape and get away from the rest of the world, this is the place to stay!

Amazing Property Perfect for a True Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely amazing. The property is beautiful and tucked away in paradise. If you are looking for a private relaxing getaway, this is the place to be. The rooftop sunsets are fabulous. The caretaker is always on hand and ready to help. He keeps the place spotless. If this is not enough, this place also has the best snorkelling ever. The coral reef just in front of the house is incredibly healthy and boasts amazing fish. I saw manta rays on several occasions while snorkelling. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Not for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to Casa del Sol late at night and were greeted by our caretaker/host Kim, who had graciously left the tiki torch lights burning out front for us! We were immediately overwhelmed when we walked into the second story apartment and saw how well equipped this home is for comfort, convenience, cooking and relaxing! No need to bring your own kitchen supplies, it's all there including an industrial size orange juice squeezer. (Don't forget to get a big bag of oranges in Los Limones!) It is just a great space and feels very welcoming. There are views of the Gulf and reef from the front deck, back patio overlooking the jungle and the rooftop from where you can view the sea, sunsets, stars and the mysterious lagoon.

It is Xcalak and very remote, must limit your water and electricity use but if you're an outdoor enthusiast, no issue.

The snorkeling was phenomenal. There are 4 kayaks to use and a plethora of snorkeling equipment on site if you forget your own or something breaks.

One of the highlights of Casa del Sol is the caretaker, Kim. A colorful character, he is unobtrusive but a great host, very engaging and a great source of information, including some pretty good stories about his days in Xcalak.
