Vacation rental at its best!

Villa Sol y Mar (House of Sun and Sea) welcomes you to paradise! Enjoy a swim in the pool, view the beautiful sunset from your private veranda and listen to the surf as it lulls you to sleep. We offer you privacy and a peaceful ambiance in this adult only environment (no children)... perfect for a relaxing vacation.

Enjoy the exclusive use of your suite and have access to the common areas, pool and gardens. The sparkling 40-foot long infinity pool is an extension of the open-air living room and dining room surrounded by gardens and patio. This suite is one of five large individual bedroom suites and the shared fully equipped kitchen opening to the pool patio and dining room complete this beautiful vacation home.

This spacious suite (one of only 5 in the villa) features 2 very comfortable queen size beds, private bath, mini-fridge, air conditioner, ceiling fan and large private veranda overlooking the ocean.

In this spectacular home, with every room designed to capture the tropical breezes and beautiful ocean views, you’ll have first class accommodations. You’ll be close to any activity, yet be able to get away from it all, in the romantic and relaxing atmosphere of Villa Sol y Mar.

Conveniently located in a quiet residential neighborhood, (Residential Conejos) you’re only 20 minutes from the airport and 5 to 10 minutes to restaurants, shopping, the golf course, and the marina. Like a lot of secluded beaches in Huatulco you’ll find these gems formed between the mountainsides of the Oaxacan coast.

About Wayne or Marcy

We discovered Huatulco, Mexico in 1997 and found Paradise! We’ve been coming back to the perfect vacation destination ever since! We are originally from the “land of 10,000 lakes” (northern US) and we needed to get out of the cold! We purchased our lot in Residencial Conejos in 1999 and designed our villa to capture the magnificent views and the ocean breezes. We completed construction in 2002 and were not disappointed! It was perfect for us and for our guests! We now live in Huatulco for around seven months of the year with our dog, Moe, (a Britney Spaniel). (Our administrator is a full time resident of Huatulco who oversees everything while we are not there). We want you to have your best vacation ever and we’re happy to share our experience and knowledge. Your hosts, Wayne and Marcy Overby

Wayne or Marcy purchased this hotel in 2002

Why Wayne or Marcy chose Santa María Huatulco Municipality

The weather was a primary consideration - it has to be warm and sunny! The villa is located in a peaceful neighborhood overlooking the ocean. Our view is one of the best in Huatulco and we are close to anything you might wish to do. There are many activities to choose from; snorkeling and fishing being some of our favorites. Huatulco, Mexico is still a small Mexico resort area so it has a quaint small town atmosphere. (Huatulco’s master plan won’t allow the high rises).

What makes this hotel unique

The private ambiance of the Villa Sol y Mar is the ultimate in a relaxing vacation. There is complete privacy in each large suite and a great gathering place to visit and have a cocktail while watching the setting sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife Anita and I spent the last two weeks of January 2010 with Wayne and Marci at Villa Sol y Mar. To say we had a wonderful time would be faint praise indeed! Wayne and Marci make sure their guests are catered to individually. If you want quiet relaxation, there is a good book by a beautiful pool (the view is fabulous) or an almost unpopulated beach not three minutes away.

If you want adventure, there are boating, fishing and snorkeling opportunities galore and the Overby's make sure you find the right people to take care of your needs.

The neighborhood, Residenciales Conejos, is absolutely gorgeous and within 5 to 10 minutes of three small towns and numerous beaches that are quiet and uncrowded. Taxis cost no more than $2 to 5 to almost anywhere and will take you to excellent restuarants and shopping. Make sure you visit the weaver's in town; their bed spreads, pillow covers and drapes are extremely well made and very affordable.

The house and grounds are well maintained by Socorro and Quirino. Breakfast is filling (loved the fresh squeezed orange juice) and enjoyable when the guests and hosts get together for early morning scheduling and small talk. The rooms are spacious and having your own private balcony overlooking one of the most breathtaking views we have every seen is quite a treat.

All in all, it was one of the finest experiences we have had while traveling and we will be back ASAP. Keep up the great work Wayne & Marci - Anita Williams & Keith Whealy from Lawrence, Kansas

an amazing place

  • 5 of 5

My wife, Debbie and I arrived on February 6th for a 24-day stay at the Villa. We have stayed in places throughout Mexico, over the past 30 years, but I can honestly say, that this was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays I can remember. This was mostly due to our host's, Wayne and Marcy. Although this is their home while in Mexico, we both felt more like family than guests. The staff, Pedro, and Elsa were great. Always a friendly greeting in the morning and a smile. The breakfast was perfect, fresh fruit, toast, and waffles if you wanted them every day. The fresh breezes every day did not require us to use the AC very often. Wayne and Marcy's attention to detail, both in the way the house is situated, and our needs, was amazing. Also, the information they provided about local sites, beaches, and restaurants was an invaluable asset. During our stay, there were several guests that came and went, all of which we enjoyed, and will stay in touch with. My wife Debbie likes the pool rather than the ocean, so she was in her zone. The pool was kept very clean, and the water was crystal clear and the temperature was perfect (the 80's), which was very refreshing. Although we rented a car, it is not really necessary, as cab's are cheap and numerous. You will maybe wait 5 minutes for one. If you plan to go to Playa Escondido, you might want to rent one. The rooms were great, we had our own bar fridge, and access to the common fridge downstairs, which was perfect. Most days, if we were not out somewhere, we could keep enough groceries, for lunches and the occasional supper. There are two major grocery stores nearby, where you get everything, from food, liquor, clothes, and even tires if you need them. haha. There are a few bars in Santa Cruz and Lacrecetia that have live music, which was an enjoyable way to spend some time. The food in the area is very good, from steak to seafood, or traditional Mexican. I could go on and on about how wonderful, the Villa was, and the surrounding area, but, I think if you want the perfect vacation, you should get a hold of Wayne and Marcy, and stay at their Villa, you won't regret it. Thank you, Wayne and Marcy, for making our vacation the perfect vacation. See You Next year. We'll be touch.

This review is long overdue but so is summer in Manitoba so we're starting to dream about next winter's vacation. We spent a week at Sol Y Mar the first week of February and it was an absolutely perfect week! Everything positive you read in these reviews is completely true. Wayne and Marcy, as well as the people we met there, made it a combination of fun, relaxation, and adventure. Wayne and Marcy have an instinct for when their guests need/want advice or conversation, and when they just want to be left alone. It was a perfect balance for us. Their staff are wonderful and the place is beautiful.

Felt like we dropped into the set of "Lifestyle of the Rich and Famous". Comfortable and scenic.

  • 4 of 5

B&Bs can be good and not so good - Sol Y Mar was SO GOOD!!! A special thanks to our hosts Wayne and Marcy - their hospitality was exceptional. Every day, but one, we had a healthy breakfast with fruit, coffee, and waffles. The "but one day" we had breakfast with our Grandson in Tangolunda. Guests did have access to a full kitchen to do their own breakfast if they wished.

The rooms were comfortable and air conditioned which was a blessing. It was hot and humid. However, the infinity pool was a special treat to off-set the heat and humidity.

The dining room and sitting areas were exceptional because of the view of the Pacific Ocean and two of the 8 bays in the area.

The most impressive part of the stay were "THE SUNSETS" - we were there 6 days and didn't miss one. They were visible from the sitting and dining area or from our private balcony.

We chose Sol Y Mar because of the pictures and because of the positive reviews.

Therefore, we want to keep the positive reviews rolling.

You may have noticed the 4 star rating - because of our personal circumstances during our stay, which had nothing to do with the comfort of our accomodation, we would have enjoyed having a TV in the room. But as you can read - this really a 5 STAR rating.

Thanks again to Wayne and Marcy for your assistance - one of the other highlights was Wayne's personal tour of the area at the beginning of the stay. It helped us plan our daily and evening activities.

Mucha Gracias Marcy and Wayne

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? This place is beautiful and quiet. Marcy and Wayne are fantastic hosts. We had the benefit of enjoying some of their extended family that were visiting while we were there over the New Year holiday. The villa has all you need and nothing you don't. You can do as much as you want or nothing at all. The view from the pool never gets old! The villages are clean and quaint and the restaurants are great. Taxis are plentiful and inexpensive so there is no need to rent a car. Huatulco is a hidden don't tell anybody! We will certainly return

Beaches are awesome too.

You won't be sorry you booked this trip!

I stayed at Villa Sol Y Mar over Christmas. The location is beautiful, private, relaxing and soothing to all the senses. Marcy and Wayne were kind and knowledgeable. I looked forward to Elsa's breakfasts each morning. I am so happy to have come to this place. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

A week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sol y Mar is a place you will want to visit! The villa is beautiful and exceptionally clean, the gardens are amazingly colorful with beautiful flowers, the ocean view of waves crashing on the rocks will hold your attention, the sunsets are picture perfect with such dynamic color and always bring a sense of peace, the pool is crystal water clear and so refreshing...I could go on and on! Wayne and Marcy have such beautiful hearts and are amazing hosts. They are also very knowledgeable and helpful about things to do and places to see in the area. They helped us line up massages, snorkeling and a day of fishing. Wayne gave us a tour of the area upon arrival, which was so very helpful since this was our first time vacationing in Huatulco.

Huatulco is a nice and clean community with many excellent choices for dining and shopping. The residents always have a smile to share and are eager to help you. There are plenty of taxis willing to get you where you need to go and the fare is cheap. The weather in Huatulco is amazing, amazing, amazing!! The mornings are always fresh and around 70 degrees. The days are always warm, sunny and around 85-90 degrees. Never a cloud and never a drop of rain. The beaches are perfect - beautiful sand and clear, refreshing salt water!

We will go back to Huatulco and when we do, we will stay at Villa Sol y Mar!
