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 ..you 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.

I stayed here for almost 3 weeks and also rented a car from Mattias. It was a great experience!! His employee, Amelia, picked us up from the airport and took us to the house where our rental car was. They were both very helpful, nice and professional. I stayed there with two young boys (2, 4). The drive to downtown was close which worked well for us as my boys went downtown everyday for preschool (mainly to practice the Spanish they're learning). The neighborhood is a typical Mexican neighborhood which worked well for us as we enjoy the cultural experience. We hope to return soon!
Excellent place to stay!!
It's an amazing home and it was very well equipped. It's close to everything in Cancun! Amelia was very nice answering all of our questions. The communication with Matthias was also excellent! Home it's beautiful and definitely next time we go to Cancun this would be our home:-) we also met the owner Gemima which it's also a very nice lady.
Overall I give this place a 5 star. Thanks!!!!!
Great and Safe
Our family of 6 enjoyed the property. It was safe quite and priced correctly. It could have some light bulbs replaced, AC on the main floor did not go below 26 degree C, some towels, and dish soap, but that was minor. Very clean and safe.
Beautiful villa in the heart of Cancun!
The property was very well-kept, spacious and pretty! We loved the decor, the rooftop patio and the back patio. It is in a very safe area with some great restaurants around the corner. We never felt unsafe and often were walking alone in the middle of the night. Taxi drivers had a hard time finding the house but we also didn't speak Spanish. We eventually would just ask them to take us to Wal-mart and walked home. The owner is very quick to respond and is very helpful. We truly had a great experience. Definitely would stay here again... it was perfect for us 9 college girls from the United State. :)
Hola from Villa Maya,
Great to hear you had a wonderful time and felt safe in our home and area in Cancun Centro.
thanks for recommending us and looking forward hosting you again in the future,
saludos Mattias and Amalia
Safe location close to Walmart and small shopping mall. Our family would have been better off staying outside the city much closer to activities like cenotes, Tulum, Chichen Itza, snorkeling, and beach access in Playa Del Carmen. One night ran out of water so no showers, toilet, or anything. Most houses had cisterns on roof so assume it wasn't filled. Upstairs renters also did not have water until next day. Paid extra for air conditioning without realizing there are only two wall mounted space units in bedrooms, not whole house air conditioning. Only sheets on bed. No other covering.
It seems that you did have an issue with the location rather then the house or services you received.
Our house is located in CANCUN like the name says, and not all the other Destinations you mention.
Tulum is 119km , Chichen ITZA 178km and Playa del Carmen is 6o km from CANCUN,...and for beach access in Playa del Carmen you should have rented in Plaza del Carmen, not Cancun...where prices are more like triple than a Cancun Downtown rental.
Next time make sure you inform yourself better on the location of the rental, and excursions you would like to do.
And if you turn off the main switch of the general watersupply, of course you wont have water.
Great location and good neighborhood
We stayed for 3 weeks and enjoyed the downstairs apartment. Two other checking in and outs occurred in the upstairs apartment while we were there but we hardly knew anyone was there - very good insolation. The bus stop was close to take the bus down to the beach (about a 15-20 min ride depending on where you are going). The bus stop is just out In front of WalMart. And Walmart was 2 blocks walk with most everything we needed. The produce and meat & seafood departments are much better than you get in the states and prices are excellent.
The neighborhood was quiet except for the sounds of children laughing and playing in the afternoon. Neighbors are very friendly. Be sure and not miss out on the fresh tortillas! The delivery man drives a motorcycle with an insulated box on the back full of warm fresh tortillas every day but Sunday.. They were the best we had ever had! 18 pesos a kilo! BTW, no GMO corn in Mexico so enjoy:).
Mattias's assistant, Amalia, is responsive and helpful if you need cleaning or more blankets, etc. She's a very nice, hard working lady and did a great job cleaning for us during our stay (it's included in your rent). I loved that! She also drove us to and from the airport for a fee that Mattias arranged before we arrived. That was very helpful. It was a pleasure to get to know her and practice my broken Spanish. She was very patient with me:).
This was our first trip to Cancun and we wouldn't hesitate to come back and stay at Mattias's home. He was so helpful, answering my questions and directing us here and there. I so appreciate the great communication. Thank you, Mattias. My husband also loved the character and comfort of your home.
we are happy that you enjoyed our home and services.
i am sure many future guests will appreciate the comments you made, and we hope we can welcome many travellers in the future at Villa Maya,
saludos Mattias, Amalia and Families

*NEW* Virtual 360 Tour available for all our Yucatan Beachhomes, German Owner
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.
