Overview

Othón P. Blanco 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.

Magnificent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to Casa del Sol for many years. The house is great; comfortable and well appointed. Emma, the house dog is well behaved and a great beach walking companion. Kim, the caretaker is helpful and accommodating.

Top Notch

  • 5 of 5

Our third trip to Xcalak and our first time at Casa del Sol. This was by far the best. The reef and snorkeling is superb and the quality and quantity of life is breathtaking. Kim, the caretaker was awesome. He is multi-talented and pointed us toward all sorts of treasures including a secret permit fishing spot. We absolutely loved Emma, the house dog and enjoyed our strolls with her up the endless beach. The house is amazing - everything was tip-top. It's in the best location and the views are spectacular. It was very very hard to leave. Xcalak is a treasure off the beaten path. (We're reluctant to let the secret out!)

Favorite Mexico Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Not knowing where to go we continued heading south from Cancun. We stay in Akimal then Mahahual but found more development than our liking so we continued south to the small town of Xcalak. Here we found Casa de sol roughly 10 km north. We where warmly welcomed by Kim the manager and Emma the property dog. Only after a few days we have decide to bring down the family as casa de sol offers what our active outdoor family would love to experience. Looking forward to a return!!

Nature Lover's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our 10 days at Casa Del Sol were absolutely wonderful! The room was clean and comfortable. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed and the bed was quite comfortable too. The sunrises were incredible right from our bed and the rooftop deck afforded wonderful views of the sun setting across the lagoon. Caretaker Kim kept the grounds immaculate, had answers to all our questions, and made sure we were happy and comfortable. All the locals we met were super friendly and we made some great friends with our fellow guests at the house. The fishing in the area is world class. I caught many Bonefish in nearby Chetumal Bay with a local guide and even had a chance at a Permit(need to work on my flycasting). Besides my fishing excursions, we only went in to town 3 times during the 10 days we were there, for dinners. There just wasn't any reason to leave the property. Be sure to stock up on groceries on the way down and don't let the drive from Cancun to intimidate you. The road is in excellent shape from Cancun to Xcalak(the last 7 miles are a little rough, but being from Michigan I'm used to a couple of potholes here and there) and we felt perfectly safe the whole duration of our trip. Do NOT come here if you want: shopping, crowds, constant entertainment, loud music, rowdy spring breakers, chain restaurants, 30 minute showers, bright lights, or extensive wine lists. DO come here if you love: nature, solitude, amazing snorkeling(steps from your doorway), bird watching, fishing, star filled skies, sea breezes, positive vibrations, peace, and tranquility. Be sure to bring some Kleenex as you will probably cry when it is time to leave. I did.

A little piece of paradise

  • 4 of 5

Casa Del Sol will definitely be near the top of our list of memorable vacations. The view is stunning. We would sleep with our patio door open for the ocean breeze, the waves glistening in the moonlight. Where else can you play horseshoes on what feels like your own private beach? My husband is not a snorkeler but was quite content with a book and the hammock.

Suggestions: Don't cheap out and rent the smallest car you can get. Something mid-size with some clearance is preferable. We found that the Chedraui in Playa Del Carmen is significantly better for supplies than the Tulum store. There is a gas station on the road to Mahahual. It is just past the turn off to Tulum.

It is a bit of an adventure to get to Xcalak but that is part of the fun. And it is worth it!
