About Mattias Doehling

The best decision I've made in my life was to come to this beautiful country,....Mexico.

I love the country and its people, but their slowness, tardiness and informality in some cases still bothers me, even after 20 years I now live here. You just have to put everything into the balance ... it's a bit hard to explain .... but it's something like if you want a fruit that has no shell or skin, is something ... thats not possible.

I was born and educated in Bamberg, Germany and finished my career there. After that, I went to work for the Mouse in Disney World in Orlando Florida and have worked in the German Pavilion at Epcot , .. followed by 2 years at Lufthansa in Frankfurt. Driven by wanderlust ... I then followed the call Mexico's in 1993.

I lived for 20 years in Cancun, Mexico, ... and still work part time in 5 star hotels. 12 years ago I started with the first Vacation apartment. We now have 7 and also rent you our Vw Beetle to our guests. We are the owners of these houses and can be reached anytime personally, by phone or by email. In the Competition of the Landlord of the Year in 2011, we made the 3 place, and in 2012 we reached the 1st place. It's a lot of fun with guests, and we are always passing along our longtime experience in Mexico . We look forward hosting you ...

Mattias Doehling purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Mattias Doehling chose La Misión

Who do we recommend to rent a vacation home in Yucatan?

If you are interested in getting to know the mexican culture, its people the hospitality and its food , is flexible and willing to learn more about the 'Mexican way of Life'and wants to experience more 'Local Flavor'... away from the beaten Tourist path and 5 Star Hotels will enjoy it..COME and STAY with us.

Who should reconsider renting a private vacation Home?

If you are looking to be pampered in a 5 Star All inclusive Hotel and Buffett style meals , having an English speaking concierge 24 hours a day...then do yourself a favor..and do NOT rent a vacation home.

What makes this apartment unique

Villa Maya de Cancun:

This was my bachelor house ... I wanted to design and decorate it the Mayan and Mexican style.

All furniture and Decoration was collecte and bought from al over the Yucatan and form part of the unique Interior of Villa Maya

In the garden patio, you can have breakfast in peace or drink a beer after a hard day of sightseeing.

On the roof terrace under the pergola blows a gentle breeze from the ocean, and you can enjoy just taking in some sun.

Villa Maya can be discribed as being in the center of everything, but tucked away from the hussle and bussle of the Touristy Cancun.

Villa Maya de Cancun is a fully equipped holiday house in Maya- Mexican style. What is missing is you, your toothbrush,toothpaste, towels and shampoo. Many of our guests would like to get to know the Mexican culture, the Mexican way of life and the flair of Mexico. A better and cheaper way to do so is here, with us in Villa Maya....rather than in the expensive, modern americanised Hotel Zone of Cancun.

Fabulous city hideaway yet close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I arrived to the top floor apartment, with my service dog, it went smoothly. Amalia is a lovely, warm and gracious house manager, and helped me with my spanish among other issues. the house was spotless, and Mattias was helpful any time I had a question. I loved that getting groceries and also the Oxxo was a block need for a vehicle,but Mattias had rentals available if you preferred. Large mall only a block away as well, yet you can hop on the R1 or 2 bus and be at the beaches in a 20 minutes. I especially loved my palapa covered balcony for morning coffee overlooking the tropical back yard and cocktails on the roof top patio overlooking the jungle park. I ended up booking 7 weeks! The area was clean and safe. Thankyou Amalia and Mattias for a great getaway.

Cancun in January

  • 5 of 5

I had planned a trip with my niece to Cancun-and the thought of visiting a country, which to include- I do not speak the language- but overall- the trip was fantastic. I did have a bit of a communication problem with Amalia, the pleasant lady that met us at the apartment - but- between sign language and Spanish/English app, we survived. The apartment, was very accommodating and clean. It is very quaint, and served our needs during our visit. I totally appreciate all I encountered- and had a great vacation. I rated this apartment a 5, as from the beginning of booking on HomeAway- communication with owner- hospitality of Amalia- everything was awesome. There are stores that are very recognizable- such as Walmart, Burger King,Little Ceasars, but the best restaurant - hands down is the best Quesadilla place "ever", which is just a walking distance from apartment- A must Visit for sure. Thank you to the Doehling Family, for allowing me to rent their property--- Happy Auntie in California :)

Very cozy.

Great spot for those who hate the loud and busy hotels. It's not as close to the beach but we rented a car and with our gps it took only 20 mins to the main beaches. I would stay here again!

Villa Maya - im vollen Umfang empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Im September 2016 hatten wir (Familie, 2 Kinder) bereits zum dritten Mal das Vergnügen 2 Wochen in der Villa Maya zu verbringen.

Sauber, schön eingerichtet, bequeme Betten, sauberes Bad, geniale Dachterrasse und rustikaler Balkon mit Blick auf den Dschungel, viele günstige restaurants innerhalb von einpaar hundert Metern, Bushaltestelle 400m von der Fewo entfernt.

Netter Vermieter, immer schnell erreichbar, egal ob Telefon, WhatsApp oder Mail.

Das war sicher nicht unser letzter Besuch in Villa Maya!

perfekter Ausgangspunkt für Reisen in Yucatan

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung liegt abseits des Massentourismus Cancúns inmitten eines Wohnviertels in der Stadt. Supermärkte, Banken, Restaurants und Cafés zu Fuß erreichbar, Strand, Innenstadt und Hotelzone per Taxi, Mietwagen oder Fahrrad und sicher auch mit dem Bus. Man erlebt hier wesentlich authentischeres Mexiko als in der Hotelzone.

Die Ferienwohnung im ersten Stock der Villa Maya ist ausgestattet mit einer kleinen Küche, Sitzecke, einem Schlafzimmer mit großem Doppelbett, Bad und Dachterrasse. Die Wohnung ist mit 2 ACs ausgestattet, gemütlich und liebevoll eingerichtet und gepflegt. Das Viertel ist ruhig, abends kann man es sich auf der Dachterrasse gemütlich machen. Für uns die perfekte Unterkunft in Cancún!

Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Gästebetreuung: Mattias, der Vermieter, kümmert sich wirklich vorbildlich um seine Gäste. Schon vor unserer Ankunft kümmerte er sich um einen passenden Flughafentransfer für uns und unsere Fahrräder, vor Ort versorgte er uns mit Reisetipps und wir können uns auch weiterhin mit Fragen an ihn wenden. Danke dafür!! Wir kommen wieder:-)

Cancun is Cancun and there is no other city like it. I think I don’t have to describe a whole lot, just this, if you want to stay away from the tourists and stay in a nice and quite residential area instead of the big hotels, Villa Maya de Cancun is the place to stay. It is the first house I bought in Mexico after I moved to Cancun from Germany. The architect made more than 40 changes to the original design and gave it a Mayan Mexican touch. The location is great as well, 3 miles from the hotel zone, 2 blocks from The Gran Plaza shopping Mall and Walmart, 1 block from Bodega Gigante, another shopping center, 400 ft from the bus stop to the hotel zone and 300ft from a 24 hr mini supermarket. Hope I can welcome you to my house.

Golf: Mayan culture

Cancun’s Mayan Culture is its crowning glory. The aura of mystery and majesty still lingers around the Mayan Ruins and archaeological sites such as Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba to mention but a few. These are all within easy reach of Cancun.
