About the property

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 Quintana Roo

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

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!!!

Maya Jardin on Soliman Bay--3,4 or 5 Bedroom Luxury Villa
average rating of 4.7647057 based on 29 reviews

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

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.

Spectacular retreat in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Maya Jardin is the vacation of your dreams! A gorgeous property on the beautiful Carribean of Soliman Bay. It is truly something out of a dream. The house is beautifully maintained and well equipped. The best asset of the estate is Mauricio, Maria and Norma. They reside on the property and provide excellent service your entire stay. Cooking, house keeping, drinks, babysitting, and arranging transportation and services. Mauricio's meals are impeccable. He also made us margaritas, Coco locos, ceviche and guacamole pool side. He arranged for us to get massages during our stay as well. Maria and Norma cleaned our rooms each day, and even did our laundry!

It was the trip of a life time and we can't wait to go back!

Truly gorgeous property and location.....completely unstable owner. READ BEFORE BOOKING!

  • 1 of 5

I will start off by saying this property really is the full package. It is in a beautiful location and has absolutely everything you could possibly need. Having said that, here are some extremely important pieces of information every prospective renter should be aware of:

I'd like to start by saying Stan, the owner is not a trustworthy man. He used VRBO as advertisement for his property, and then did the booking entirely on his own via his own rental agreement. He got my credit card information and made an UNAUTHORIZED charge after we left without speaking to me first. I have reported Stan and his property to VRBO for violating terms of their contract.

Stan lives ON the property in the Casita next door. Not only will he be in the Casita during your vacation, he will stop by your rental daily, try to make small talk, and question EVERYTHING you are doing. He holds zero accountability for any problems during your stay.

Mauricio and his staff work entirely on their own schedule and at their own pace. Stan claims you can ask Mauricio anything, anytime. Mauricio's english is not good enough to communicate without some knowledge of Spanish. He seemed put off and annoyed by every request we made of him, no matter how simple or necessary it may have been. We woke up multiple mornings to a dirty beach and a dirty pool that were not tended to until noon or later. We had an infant on our trip and they forgot to leave out the pack and play before he took a day and a half off (which resulted in two nights with the infant sleeping in bed with his parents). I would like to point out Mauricio's wife, Maria and her staff were really incredible and did a fantastic job cleaning up for us each day.

The on site outdoor kitchen is 100% Mauricio and his families kitchen (they also live on site), and they use it during regular hours of the day (which I entirely respect, but this cannot be promoted as a bonus for the rental when it isn't even available during normal cooking hours). We felt like we were intruding on his space even being in this area of the rental.

Honestly, I have a million other complaints I could list here, but I will take the high road. My then fiancee, now wife, and I and our families used Stan's property for a small 13 person wedding ceremony. All said and done, it was an incredible experience we will never forget. Stan and Mauricio made our stay beyond frustrating, but despite their attempts, they could not ruin our moment.

Owner's Response: I guess the old saying prevails: "You can't please all the people all the time". Especially when, on the rarest of occasions, you have a guest with unreasonable expectations. My staff prides themselves on making memorable vacations and fulfilling every expectation out guests have. On this occasion we had to stop guests from moving the villa furniture and a suite refrigerator to the beach which was not taken well. Being called untrustworthy is a personal attack that I feel compelled to address directly. Reasonable additional charges were made for "lost at sea" and broken items. When a neighbor found on the beach and returned the "lost at sea" item a reversal of the charge was immediate. No unauthorized charges were made. Only charges for damages which the guest should have reported, and taken care of, while present at the villa. Mauricio has been dealing hosting guests of Maya Jardin for over 10 years and never, ever, has anyone said that communication was an issue. Lack of communication on this instance was an huge issue. At Maya Jardin we make memorable experiences and I am glad you agree that you had an "incredible experience you will never forget". Maya Jardin is as you describe: "the full package".

Maya Jardín is an astounding beach villa. The location is amazing. Mauricio and the Staff make the stay enjoyable all the time, he is an excelente chef, we highly recomend the tuna steaks for dinner.

You can get your snorkel gear and have a great ride in the bay right infront of the Villa. We saw turtles and stingrays, and there is a reef full of fish. We also saw a turtle laying her eggs right next to the Villa.

The listing description is accurate, the Villa was clean and well maintained, the customer service was excelent, we highly recommend this Villa!

Maya Jardín is a great vacation, we had small children playing all day on the beach and in the pool, but the best and the most notable of this villa is the owner, was a pleasure to rent your Villa.
