We just returned after a fantastic stay at Villa Sofia! The home (as good or better than the pictures shown) is a dream home with magnificent views of the Caribbean Sea! The pool and all the rooms and facilities were superb. We had 9 adults and 1 baby and had ample room for all of us to enjoy some “me time” and also be together as a family. Marcel (the owner) was always available (before and during the trip) and responded quickly to all our questions! He was also most helpful in giving us recommendations for a chef service, diving, and other travel questions throughout the stay. Chef Antonio and his 2 chefs were outstanding, and made each meal a work of Art! Francesco (house custodian) and his wife Patty were always attentive and kept the house in excellent working order. The home is a 1.5 hour drive from Cancun airport although most the travel is on an excellent highway. The entryway into the subdivision (last 5 KM or so) is unpaved and made for a bumpy ride. A wonderful vacation overall and a great place to be with family and celebrate Thanksgiving! We were all very thankful for our stay at Villa Sofia!
Villa Sofia is absolutely beautiful. Well equipped, cozy, unbelievable ocean views and infinity pool. Marcel was very responsive to all requests. Francisco was always there to help and the house was cleaned daily. Fairly short ride to downtown. Great location for Tulum ruins, snorkeling in cenotes and tours.
Highly recommend Villa Sofia!!
Enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at Villa Sophia with 3 girlfriends. The home is wonderful for a family of number or couples. It has lots of open areas to congregate outside and inside. Truthfully it was quite large for the 4 of us. The view was great. We took a dip in the pool, walked the beach but swim. The ocean in front of the property has a lot of coral. I suppose you could walk a bit down the beach into water in sandals and be able to go for a swim. We had a lovely time at the small hotel bar 2 homes down. That was a great perk. The house was well stocked. There was a large water dispenser, coffee filters and coffee maker, it was a a modern kitchen and lacked nothing we needed. We did cook a real breakfast or lunch daily. Francisco and his wife were cleaning and fixing the property every day
Also, the area felt quite safe. Would love to go Again. It is a gem.
This house is everything! It is sophisticated yet comfortable; large but with many perfect private areas to escape for a nap or take a phone call; located in a community with other beachfront homes yet feels private.
I invited 10 girlfriends to help me celebrate my 50th bday. Between the friendly owners Marcel & his wife, the housekeepers, caretaker, and private chef (Marcel helped me arrange), from start to finish it was an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.
As a matter of fact we never left the home for 4 days. We didn't need to because scenery was unbelievable, meals were delicious, masseuses came to us, and ocean breeze was perfection!
Descriptions for rental vacation homes can be deceiving. That is not the case with Casa Sofia. Everything great that you read about Casa Sofia, or photos that you look up online all do it justice.
Enjoy your stay!
Marcel is the best! My friends decided they wanted to check in a day early and Marcel was more then accommodating. They did not get in till after 9pm and were able to reach Marcel who then meet them at the house. Marcel was available if we needed anything and the house is amazing. I would highly recommend staying here!
