About Owner/Manager

Since semi-retiring from our life’s work in Education and Marketing, respectively, my wife and I began searching for a place we could call home during some of Vermont’s winters.

We are active��play competitive tennis, garden, hike, bike, snorkel, yoga—and wanted a locale that could also provide us with an active lifestyle.

We have also owned and rented properties in Canada and the U.S., all of which have had 5-star ratings, and we fully expect to provide the same level of service for Casa Blanco, our new Tao-Inspired luxury penthouse condo.

Why Owner/Manager chose Akumal

We have both travelled extensively, visiting over 25 countries throughout the world, but didn’t feel like any place we had already been fit our criteria for a home away from home AND one that was not too far from our home in Vermont, family and friends throughout the U.S.

We’ve visited the west coast of Mexico, the central Yucatan region, and the Mayan Riviera. The Mayan Riviera offers all that we were hoping to find: spectacular weather, beautiful beaches, a lush jungle, a gentle and welcoming culture, and a relaxed atmosphere.

We are very active, so we enjoy the opportunity to play tennis, snorkel, walk to yoga classes, and explore new and interesting things. Our next adventure is to learn Spanish! The Tao Wellness Center, offering yoga, meditation classes, Spanish classes and other life-long learning options, is a 3-minute walk from our place, as is the community infinity pool. The quiet beauty of the jungle, the adjoining 27-hole golf course and the proximity to the ocean add to the overall experience.

We also enjoy diversity and being introduced to new cultures, and find both here--Mexican, Mayan and the new arrivals from all over the world.

What makes this condo unique

•Mexican-made dining table and chairs, sofa

•Exquisite Tzalum Mexican hardwood trim and furnishings

•Handmade Jacuzzi trim and Mexican outdoor furniture in the upper gardened terrace that compliment the private sunning area

Beautiful patio but needs better communication

  • 3 of 5

I have rented from site before and it was again very easy with manager contacting me promptly. Everyone we dealt with concerning this property was very nice. The kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed the upstairs patio with hot tub very much. Wonderful bird watching first thing in morning. Nicely decorated also. They did have water for us here which was also nice. I do have some constructive criticism however.

The onsite manager was there to greet us but had a little difficulty speaking English. She showed us a folder that was supposed to have info about the place. It had some but was missing a map, which was very needed. She didn't explain options available to us from the hotel Bahia Principle except to say we needed to buy a wrist band to eat there. So, folder was not updated. She left her number and email in case we needed something. The TV is an apple one so you need iTunes password or something. I emailed her about the problem with not being to watch anything. She had a service man come over to work on TV without telling or asking us. He was unable to "fix" TV so we could watch it either. I asked her to email owners. She did and emailed me back a password but that too didn't work. It wasn't that we wanted to watch it a lot but March madness basketball games going on in evening! I had. Tried to call her also. The message was in Spanish so I couldn't understand it. I left a message but she never called me back. Upon arrival there were some small ants around one of the bathroom sinks. We killed them and didn't see anymore so didn't mention it to her at at time. The 4th day we were there, my daughter was taking some clothes out of her suitcase and found ants crawling all over it, the clothes in it, and in her shoes, which were in the closet, in her tote bag which was also in the room. There was no ant spray anywhere on the place. We had to take it all outside on patio and shake stuff out, wipe it clean,etc. I emailed Paoula regarding this and she never responded to me. We got ant spray that day on our own and sprayed the room. My daughter though didn't want to sleep in the room so slept on the couch that night. The beds in e condo were very firm also. There were extra pillow but no extra pillow cases. I had included the need for some more pillowcases in my email to Paoula but again she didn't respond. They had construction going on near our building. I had asked in my original email if it was noisy, prior to going there and was told that it shouldn't b

Better Than a Hotel Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was my first attempt at renting privately for a vacation. This was a best decision. This immaculate, penthouse condo has 2 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. This open floor plan has a kitchen equipped with every thing one needs away from home; a breakfast bar with swivel chairs; dining table for 4; sofa for 3 with chaise. The patio, right off the living area, has seating for 2, a love seat, and stand. The second floor hosts a spectacular roof top patio which would accommodate a party of 50 easily. It comes equipped with jacuzzi and seating which allows one to look at the stars on a clear night and the mountains during the day.

It was clean, and well maintained as maid service and I had everything I needed. I'd recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a stay in the Tao, which is an inspired living community based on blending the body, mind and spirit. The wellness center has a variety of activities including yoga, a book club, tennis, golf, and many other amenities.

Fabulous Place !

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this condo in January. It more then met my expectations. It was spacious, beautifully decorated and had all the amenities you could possibly need.

The location is ideal ! It is close to the beautiful beaches, fantastic restaurants and the many hidden gems the area has to offer. Let me not forget the weather could not have been more perfect and the local people are friendly and accommodating.

I highly recommend you stay at this place. You will be glad you did.
