About the property

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Vacation rental at its best!

Villa Sol y Mar (House of Sun and Sea) welcomes you to paradise! Enjoy a swim in the pool, view the beautiful sunset from your private veranda and listen to the surf as it lulls you to sleep. We offer you privacy and a peaceful ambiance in this adult only environment (no children)... perfect for a relaxing vacation.

Enjoy the exclusive use of your suite and have access to the common areas, pool and gardens. The sparkling 40-foot long infinity pool is an extension of the open-air living room and dining room surrounded by gardens and patio. This suite is one of five large individual bedroom suites and the shared fully equipped kitchen opening to the pool patio and dining room complete this beautiful vacation home.

This spacious suite (one of only 5 in the villa) features 2 very comfortable queen size beds, private bath, mini-fridge, air conditioner, ceiling fan and large private veranda overlooking the ocean.

In this spectacular home, with every room designed to capture the tropical breezes and beautiful ocean views, you’ll have first class accommodations. You’ll be close to any activity, yet be able to get away from it all, in the romantic and relaxing atmosphere of Villa Sol y Mar.

Conveniently located in a quiet residential neighborhood, (Residential Conejos) you’re only 20 minutes from the airport and 5 to 10 minutes to restaurants, shopping, the golf course, and the marina. The beach access is about 20 minutes from the villa and well worth the adventure climb up and down the hill. Like a lot of secluded beaches in Huatulco you’ll find these gems formed between the mountainsides of the Oaxacan coast.

About Wayne or Marcy

We discovered Huatulco, Mexico in 1997 and found Paradise! We’ve been coming back to the perfect vacation destination ever since! We are originally from the “land of 10,000 lakes” (northern US) and we needed to get out of the cold! We purchased our lot in Residencial Conejos in 1999 and designed our villa to capture the magnificent views and the ocean breezes. We completed construction in 2002 and were not disappointed! It was perfect for us and for our guests! We now live in Huatulco for around seven months of the year with our Britney Spaniel, Ace. (Our administrator is a full time resident of Huatulco who oversees everything while we are not there). We want you to have your best vacation ever and we’re happy to share our experience and knowledge. Your hosts, Wayne and Marcy Overby

Wayne or Marcy purchased this hotel in 2002

Why Wayne or Marcy chose Mexico

The weather was a primary consideration - it has to be warm and sunny! The villa is located in a peaceful neighborhood overlooking the ocean. Our view is one of the best in Huatulco and we’re only a few minutes’ walk to a small private beach, and a short ride to anything you might wish to do. There are many activities to choose from; snorkeling and fishing being some of our favorites. Huatulco, Mexico is still a small Mexico resort area so it has a quaint small town atmosphere. (Huatulco’s master plan won’t allow the high rises).

What makes this hotel unique

The private ambiance of the Villa Sol y Mar is the ultimate in a relaxing vacation. There is complete privacy in each large suite and a great gathering place to visit and have a cocktail while watching the setting sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife Anita and I spent the last two weeks of January 2010 with Wayne and Marci at Villa Sol y Mar. To say we had a wonderful time would be faint praise indeed! Wayne and Marci make sure their guests are catered to individually. If you want quiet relaxation, there is a good book by a beautiful pool (the view is fabulous) or an almost unpopulated beach not three minutes away.

If you want adventure, there are boating, fishing and snorkeling opportunities galore and the Overby's make sure you find the right people to take care of your needs.

The neighborhood, Residenciales Conejos, is absolutely gorgeous and within 5 to 10 minutes of three small towns and numerous beaches that are quiet and uncrowded. Taxis cost no more than $2 to 5 to almost anywhere and will take you to excellent restuarants and shopping. Make sure you visit the weaver's in town; their bed spreads, pillow covers and drapes are extremely well made and very affordable.

The house and grounds are well maintained by Socorro and Quirino. Breakfast is filling (loved the fresh squeezed orange juice) and enjoyable when the guests and hosts get together for early morning scheduling and small talk. The rooms are spacious and having your own private balcony overlooking one of the most breathtaking views we have every seen is quite a treat.

All in all, it was one of the finest experiences we have had while traveling and we will be back ASAP. Keep up the great work Wayne & Marci - Anita Williams & Keith Whealy from Lawrence, Kansas

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue but so is summer in Manitoba so we're starting to dream about next winter's vacation. We spent a week at Sol Y Mar the first week of February and it was an absolutely perfect week! Everything positive you read in these reviews is completely true. Wayne and Marcy, as well as the people we met there, made it a combination of fun, relaxation, and adventure. Wayne and Marcy have an instinct for when their guests need/want advice or conversation, and when they just want to be left alone. It was a perfect balance for us. Their staff are wonderful and the place is beautiful.

second time around

  • 5 of 5

We have just arrived back in Canada after our second visit to Villa Sol y Mar. Wayne and Marcy continue to be wonderful hosts. They are always pleasant and willing to help with suggestions of how to optimize your enjoyment of the area. Elsa continues to make breakfasts of fresh fruit, juice, yogurt, toast and homemade waffles - a terrific way to start the day before you head to the beautiful beaches within walking distance of the villa. The views from the patio and the infinity pool are outstanding. Rooms are clean and comfortable and kept impeccably clean. We will definitely be back.

Fun in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I Just arrived home after 18 days at Villa Sol y mar and loved it but was sad to have to leave. Wayne and Marcy are wonderful hosts, they have great knowledge about Huatulco, they suggested many places to eat in town and things to see and do. They truly do treat you like one of their family!

The villa gives you a spectacular ocean view along with great everyday sunsets wether you are in your room, on your balcony or in or beside the infinity pool. A very relaxing place if you choose to stay at the villa or be adventurous and walk to nearby private secluded beaches or cab it. The villa is located in an upscale residential neighbourhood. The open air seating and awesome infinity pool is all you need for that relaxation time. No need to ever get up early and race down to put a towel on a chair like AI's. The availability to eat in and cook your own meals on the BBQ or stove ads a nice touch if you choose to stay put wether it's lunch time or supper.

Cabs are five minutes away and are reasonably priced to town. Pedro & Elsa maintain the grounds and rooms and have a continental style breakfast ready every morning at 8:00 and be careful her waffles are very addicting lol!!. Sitting around the huge table eating and sharing stories and getting to know your fellow guests ads that extra touch to the Villa. Being able to also experience in town and eat at the many restauruants and experience the Mexican way is something you will never get staying in an All inclusive, the locals are friendly, and just nice people and a very safe city.

Villa Sol y Mar is the perfect place to stay if you want to get away from the All Inclusive stays. The rooms and grounds are absolutely spotless and well maintained. We would highly recommend this place to stay and being there after seeing the pictures is truly paradise, look forward to a return visit

Wonderful Time @ Villa Sol y Mar in Huatulco, Mexico

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sol y Mar was the perfect place to vacation. We shared the property with three other couples plus owners Wayne and Marcie. All having our own privacy in our rooms with the most incredible view of Conejos Bay and the rimless pool on the property. We came as strangers to the property, but left as new friends. After a couples of breakfasts together that helpers Pedro and Elsia prepared for us, we often planned our days together. Breakfast was always fresh local fruit and waffles. Wayne and Marcie were there to help with making reservations for a mud massage, a boat ride, snorkeling, or a dinner in town. We enjoyed the use of the kitchen to make lunch or BBQ dinner and stay around the property enjoying a glass of wine or tequila for the evening. The common area kitchen, seating couch area and table that sat us all was located pool side open air with a view all day and night. Everything was keep clean and maintained well. We had a rental car, but truly didn’t need it. You could call a cab and it would be there in 5 minutes and very reasonable in price. This was a perfect place for us. Thank you for a very memorable vacation and sharing your dreams with us.

You feel so welcome

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just arrived home from a 10 day stay at Villa Sol y Mar and had a most enjoyable time. Wayne and Marcy are perfect hosts, who welcome you upon arrival like you are family. They are a wealth of information regarding the area and encourage you to go out and embrace all that they find wonderful about Huatulco. The bed and breakfast is in a beautiful spot with lovely views to the ocean surf. The rooms are spacious, exceptionally clean and there is ample space to store your clothing and personal items. Wifi service is available so you can keep up with the world around you. Breakfast is served at 8 am cooked by Elsa. Fresh fruit, juice, tea, coffee, milk, toast, cereal and homemade waffles await you. There is a fridge to store food in if you so desire. Grocery store, restaurants, shopping is a short taxi ride away for 50 pesos. Take your vacation with Villa Sol y Mar and you'll think you're in paradise. We will definitely go back again!!

Such a beautiful place to stay...quiet...beautiful views...wonderful views...what more can I say :-)

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sol y Mar is the perfect place to stay if you want some peace & quiet...great views...& .wonderful hosts ( Wayne & Marcy & Ace ) who will help you in any way that they can. Their place is spotless & their guest rooms are very comfortable with plenty of storage for your items. You truly get to TV... no radios.. ( you do have internet service though ) .just the beauty that is around you that you can take in without the interruptions of your face paced life. You pretty much have full access to everything that you may need while staying at Villa Sol y Mar. There is a beach that is close by which is really nice...beautiful sand....trees for shade and some snorkeling...but you will have to hike to get to the beach. It is a great workout...lots of steps up the hill...and lots of steps down. Well worth the effort to enjoy such a beautiful area. Taxi's can be called to their home & arrive in about 5 min or less. The ride into Santa Cruz is about 15 min & will run about 50 peso's each way..well worth the money.

Breakfast is served every morning which will include lots of fresh fruits..yogart..cereals..& the most wonderful waffle you will ever taste....thanks to Elsa's wonderful cooking :-). There is fresh squeezed orange juice & the best coffee ever too.

We found that staying at Villa Sol y Mar was just perfect for us...we ventured out for dinner & found wonderful excursions to the other areas for us to explore. If we had stayed at one of the all inclusives we wouldn't have ventured out as much as we did and would have missed out on so much of the culture of their food & the beautiful areas that we saw.
