About Judy Dohm and Frank Conati
I work out of Monterrey, Mexico and MN; with my partners we had always dreamed of a beach home. We made our dreams a reality.
Judy Dohm and Frank Conati purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Judy Dohm and Frank Conati chose Tulum
We fell in love with Tankah in 1997 and purchased property there - no matter where we are in the world, a piece of our heart remains in Tankah. The bay is clean and close to things to do.

Perfect family vacation
Spent a week here with three families. Great set up to relax and have fun in the ocean, and close enough to town to enjoy that, too. On site staff were friendly, kept everything clean, and cooked wonderful food. Wonderful vacation.
Best house on the beach
That’s how one in our family party of eight described the house. And he was right. But what really made the house special was the care and attention of the caretakers, Edith, Yobani and Estella (I think it’s spelled differently but that’s how I heard them pronounce their daughter’s name.) They are truly lovely and special people. And the food is out of this world. As good as any fancy restaurant in the Yucatan. Do take advantage of Edith’s cooking services. We had her cook dinner three nights. Wish we’d done more.
We loved kayaking, even when it got a little windy and choppy. Never felt endangered because we wore life vests, and the water isn’t deep. Loved just walking the beach and having fancy margaritas at Mereva, along with some pretty good wood-fires pizza. Also several of us took advantage of the massage service at Cielo Maya. The masseuse, Itzel, works magic on your knots and kinks.
All in all, a beautiful special place. The rooms are well-equipped, spacious and private. And downstairs is a nice open space living-dining arrangement. You can’t help but enjoy the house and Tulum. One thing you might want to consider is renting a car either in Tulum or at the airport. Only one in our group did and it was small so we couldn’t all fit if we wanted to go somewhere as a group. Cabs are plentiful at the end of the street and not too expensive if you go local. But if you wanted to go to one if the nearby water parks the cab would have cost a pretty penny. And even getting pesos is a hassle. None of the three at the Chedraui grocery store worked. Two bank ATMs (and a hefty cab fare later) we found one that worked at a 7-11, of all places. HSBC ATMs seem to work better internationally.
Tulum is magical. Enjoy!
A wonderful vacation
The home was exactly as advertised. We had a wonderful, effortless vacation. Everything was perfect. Edith and Yoblany were great - flexible and helpful. We couldn't have asked for anything nicer. Bob
Even better than what is described on the listing
We had a great vacation and enjoyed a lot our time spent at casa soleada. We were two families of five each, with children from 6 to 17 years old and we all enjoyed the amenities the property offers. The teenagers enjoyed water activities and the little ones we could not get them out of the pool! They made sand castles, searched for seashells, etc. Us adults had a great time relaxing. The property is very well taken care of, the cooking services are EXCELLENT and the staff is very helpful. They were attentive to every need we could have and they are also watchfull of every detail so that you can enjoy your vacation. The beds are VERY comfortable, rooms are spacious and clean. We had many expectations before arriving and they were met and more. You can trust everything that is described in the listing and you will find it is even better once you arrive at the property. I hope that we have the opportunity to return in the future, we had an excellent time and enjoyed all the amenities that they have.
This is our4th time staying at Casa Soleada. We love staying here. Edith and Yobany take such good care of the house, beach and cook for us. The house is taken care of so well that everything is working and looks like it did when we first stayed here 10 years ago. The area has a big issue with seaweed and Yobany and his helpers take great care of the beach and remove it each day.
