About Nicholas Heins
My Children and i would love to share our special villa with our guests knowing that they will enjoy Cozumel and the wonderful people of the island as much as we do.
Nicholas Heins purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Nicholas Heins chose Cozumel
As Canadians traveling to Cozumel we found a very rare beachfront lot while visiting Cozumel and purchased the lot . Cozumel is a great family oriented island and our kids love our beach and lush tropical property.We built Villa Sol Haa shortly after purchasing the property and have enjoyed staying at our villa every opportunity we can.
What makes this Villa unique
The snorkeling off our beach is some of the best on the island. With the calm clear waters kids of all ages can enjoy the aquatic life in as little as 2' of water . My villa is on a rare beachfront lot and we have full time caretakers that clean the villa 6 days per week. Sitting under a palm tree having a cool tropical drink while lounging by the pool overlooking the almost unbelievable Azure blue waters of the caribbean, is something that is very special to us.

Wonderful vacation house
Loved every minute! The house was very clean, well maintained and staff was very friendly. My family and I will definitely be visiting Cozumel again.
Thank you so much look forward to seeing you again soon
Villa Sol Haa is a fantastic property
Villa Sol Haa is a beautiful property situated conveniently close to the airport. The property is very well maintained with great amenities near by. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and the views are spectacular. There is great snorkeling right off the property and there is a quaint restaurant next door which is great for a margarita or a quick bite to eat. The local house staff are friendly and very helpful. I would highly recommend this property.
most relaxing trip ever!!
The property was pristine and the view incredible. The water was crystal clear with excellent snorkeling and swimming. There is a Day beach place next door that was there if you needed anything to eat or drink. Very convenient! Very close to everything but yet far enough away to relax. I would strongly recommend this to anyone. Couple or families. Lotsa of room. Extremely clean and comfortable.
Third Time’s A Charm
Third time to Villa Sol Haa and scheduled to go back again in November. The house is fantastic - roomy, well equipped and incredible views. With the ocean at your doorstep, stunning sunsets, pool and now even a daytime beach club/restaurant next door, I wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else.
Better Than A Hotel
We spent a week in June at Villa Sol Haa with the entire family, ages ranged from three to 73. You can get there by taxi or rent a car, which is what we did. We were welcomed by Jaun, the caretaker upon arrival. He showed us through the Villa and told us how to reach him along with general information. Within an hour Ksenia, the property manager, was at the Villa reviewing a few rules and giving us a lot of useful information including where to shop for groceries, where to exchange money, restaurant recommendations etc.
We had the chef for one breakfast and one evening meal. He was very personable and the prices for breakfast are probably as reasonable, if not cheaper, as any you would find in town. His evening meal was also delicious and the price was in line with most nice restaurants. With our large group I would probably have him for breakfast every day.
Tortugas Beach Club opened about six months ago and is located on the beach near the Villa. It is open from 8 to 5 six days a week. I thought it would bother us but it didn’t. It’s not a bad place to go for lunch and they will stay open for you if you’d like to have dinner. We also went there for breakfast but breakfast is not their forte. Ask for Monkey, he’s great and kept offering us discounts on goods and services since we were staying at the Villa.
Things I wish I had known:
• Along with the coffee maker there was a bag of fresh ground coffee.
• You can ask Juan to have your laundry picked up and, if given early enough, delivered back the same day.
• There are plenty of pool and beach toys ranging from buckets and shovels to pool floats and squirt guns.
• There is a basket full of various types of sun block.
• There is salt and pepper along with basic herbs and spices. Probably left by previous guests.
The only problem we had was with the thatched roof bedroom. My grandson stayed in that room and the visible thatch had a heavy moldy smell. His allergies bothered him to the point that he ended up sleeping on the hide a bed in the master bedroom. Easy fix.
We all appreciated being at the Villa, so much better than staying in a hotel. Juan is a jewel. He would find interesting shells for the kids and always talk to them and help them in any way he could. Juan will also call a taxi if you need it or call for pizza delivery. Bottom line, we would gladly go back again.
If you're looking at this rental, BOOK IT NOW
We spent a full week at Villa Sol Haa and it wasn't near enough time! We can't wait to book another trip to stay here again. The owner (Nicholas) was extremely helpful as we prepared for the trip, always prompt and helpful in responses. And upon arrival, Juan (the caretaker) was right there and ready to help in any way possible. Anything we needed, Juan was there to help, however, he wasn't bothersome at all with his presence. He did what he needed to do to care for the property for us to enjoy our time there and then would go the extra mile to help when we had questions.
As for the house, it was AWESOME. To be able to walk out the back door and swim, lounge in the grass or beach, or walk out to some of the best snorkling ever (for free) was PERFECT. The bar next door to the property was a nice surprise. It closes at 5 so you don't have to worry about loud party goers and it was perfect for the days we didn't want to make our lunch to grab some of the best food we found on the island. While there were days it would be busy, it wasn't at all a hindrance to our enjoyment of the property as they stayed in the bar or were out snorkeling thus the beach area was ours to enjoy as we wanted. The location is also ideal as it's not far to take a car trip up or down the strip for dinners.
As for the inside of the house, it was great. Very nicely done and comfortable. The 3rd floor room is beautifully done and is one of two large rooms with great ocean view. Another room that was even larger without a view worked well for the other family who had a little one that slept in the room for them. We had 9 total (4 adults and 5 children who ranged from 8-13) and we had two empty bedrooms so there is PLENTY of room. The TV in the main room was amazing quality and was nice for the kids to watch Netflix / movies with the quality they see at home in the evenings.
Again, like the title says, if you are looking at this property and considering renting it, JUST BOOK IT, you will not be disappointed. I know we weren't and are figuring who else we can take next time to rent the adjoining property as well for an even larger group since it's all managed by Juan.
Thanks Nicholas for sharing your amazing property with us. Our families greatly enjoyed our time in Cozumel and your house was one of the primary reasons for the enjoyment!
The eco-park Chankanaab is a short 3-5 minute walk from our door, Here you can swim in the protected lagoon, swim with the dolphins, learn to snorkel or scuba dive, or relax on the beach
