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
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.
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!
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. :)
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.
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.
Our experience with this house started off badly when the caretaker showed up 15 minutes late while we waited outside with all our luggage and I'm frantically calling a number that was on the site that was disconnected. Amalia the caretaker seems nice but I don't believe she's doing her job well because the first day in the house we found one air conditioner in a room did not work and when I told her she first tried to tell me I didn't pay for electricity(are u kidding me?)then she admitted that the technician was supposed to fix it the day before we arrived but he needed a part and he would be back tomorrow to fix it. That got fixed but then we found one light in a bathroom didn't work and then another bathroom light when out the next day and neither were fixed the whole week we were there. Also forget about using the washing machine that didn't work either and no surprise it never got fixed. On the website it mentions a beachclub we were allowed to use so I ask Amalia and, no surprise again, she has no clue what I'm talking about. It wasn't until the last day there I finally get an email response from the owner letting me know which hotel the beachclub is at. I do want to recommend the lady Sandra who handles all the tour packages, she was extremely helpful, came over 3 times to the house to make sure we were taken care of and gave us great prices on the packages. Sandra is intelligent, polite, knows the area very well and does her job extremely well. Other than all those above mentioned issues the house itself is not too bad, the upstairs terrace and the patio area downstairs are very nice and the location is very close to a Walmart and some nice restaurants.
Hello Me and my girls just returned back from our annual trip. I was very pleased with the house and what it had to offer. Amalia was very sweet and she helped us with anything we needed. I would recommend this house to anyone vacationing. I loved the neighborhood and there was a lot of places to eat and shop close by.

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.
