Overview

Tulum Condo Rental Photos and Description

New 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Penthouse Condo, Located Near The Beach

I'm a brand new 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom penthouse condo located in the new community of Real Zama, a part of Aldea Zama. This is just a short drive or bike ride to the world class beaches of the warm, crystal clear Tulum beaches on the Caribbean Ocean. Step into this 3rd floor walk-up unit and you enter into an open floor-plan: kitchen, eating area and living area. Just off of the air conditioned living room is a patio overlooking the serene pool below. The patio has table and chairs for outdoor eating. Back inside the unit are two bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a king size bed, black out shades and it's own air conditioner. You walk through the large closet area which leads you into the bathroom with a large shower area and plenty of counter space around the sink. The second bedroom has 1 full bed and 1 twin bed. It also has it's own air conditioner. Just off this bedroom there is the 2nd bathroom which likewise has a large shower. There is direct access to this bathroom from the 2nd bedroom and no need to go out into the hallway. The living room has a fold out sofa bed. The unit has a security box located in the Master bedroom. There is a washer and dryer located in the hallway going between the living area and the bedroom section. There is also a smaller balcony off of the two bedrooms. Upstairs there is a large private deck which is accessed through the common stairwell. This deck is for the exclusive use to the guests of this unit. It has a Palapa for shade , 2 lounging chairs, 2 long seating areas under the Palapa, a BBQ, small Jacuzzi, sink and outdoor lighting for evening use. It is a great place to sit and gaze at the stars as you listen to the birds and wildlife in the nearby jungle area, or a place to sit and enjoy the company of family as well as old and new friends joining together to share a meal or drinks, or a place to just soak in the jacuzzi tub. The beautiful beaches of Tulum are a short drive from the complex, or for those looking to keep in shape, a short bike ride or jog from the complex. The kitchen is equipped with all of the essentials. It features electric appliances and a dishwasher. There is a large 'island' which separates the kitchen area from the living area. This can be used as an additional food preparation area, or an eating area as it has 6 barstools which fit under the countertop. Outside there is a common, large communal pool. There is an on-site manager who can assist you with anything that comes up from information on things to do as well as any maintenance issues which might arise.

About John Cortez

Hi, I'm a retired Medical Social Worker originally from Los Angeles, CA and now living in San Francisco, CA for the last 25 years. I went to Loyola University in Los Angeles and studied to be an accountant as that was my parent's dream. The course work was easy, I graduated and got the job...but then I found out I really did not like to work as an accountant. So I then began my own journey which eventually led me to San Francisco where I went into the Social Work arena. I received my Master's degree in Social Work from San Francisco State University. I also am licensed by the State of California as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. The majority of my working years were spent in the medical field, primarily in the home care, hospice and hospital settings. I love to travel and back in 1985 I first came to the Cancun area where I fell in love with the beaches...but not all the high rise mega hotel complexes. As the years progressed I went traveling further down the coast and eventually found Tulum...and so my dream of living near the beautiful Caribbean beaches began to become a reality here in Tulum which is heaven on earth...and if you do not believe in heaven that is okay, just think of the best thing you can...and Tulum is MORE than that. Of course this is just my humble opinion!

John Cortez purchased this condo in 2013

Why John Cortez chose Tulum

I think you can figure out why I wanted to move here, or live here part time, based on what I wrote above. The ideal possibly might have been to actually live on the waterfront, but then I would not have enough left over for all of life's other pleasures. So after looking and looking for the last several years at properties in Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Belize, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Brazil and the USA, I decided to take the plunge on this property in Tulum. It is new, near the beach, just the right size, close to home (USA), allows me to connect with the local culture and not be in a 'gated' compound, lets me wander on my bike back and forth to town or the beach, has great food, and has great opportunities to exercise naturally (sometimes) and stay in shape

What makes this condo unique

I love living in a place which is connected to Mother Nature, where the birds sing and make their noises during the day and night, where little gecko lizards scamper around, where the iguana makes you stop or slow down, where the sunsets are beautiful, where the lightening and thunder showers are so intense that it stops you in your tracks...but where the creature comforts of life are close at hand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Die Wohnung ist fast noch schöner, als im Internet beschrieben. Es fehlt an nichts. Ob es der Geschirrspüler, die Waschmaschine, der Tümmler oder die Fahrräder sind. Im Haushalt ist alles zu finden. Sogar Tupperware, Gewürze usw. Es ist Spielzeug für die Kinder, Schwimmutensilien, Sonnenschirm, Strandsessel, Regenschirme und vieles mehr vorhanden. Einfach alles, es fehlt an nichts. Und die Dachterrasse ist einfach ein Traum. Man verlässt die Wohnung einfach ungern, schade, dass der Urlaub so schnell vorbei war.

The apartment is almost more beautiful than described on the internet. Nothing is missing. Whether it's the dishwasher, the washing machine, the bottlenose dolphin and bikes. In the unit everything can be found, even tupperware, spices, etc. There are beach toys for children, swimming toys, beach umbrella, beach chairs, and more available. Everything, nothing is missing. And the roof terrace is simply a dream. When you have to leave the apartment you just hate it. It is a shame the holiday was over so quickly.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Tulum many times. We love the area for it's white sandy beaches and warm ocean water. This condo was perfectly located for us to easily enjoy the beaches and the town it self. We biked, walked, or taxied everywhere we went. The condo was first class! It was a treat to use the well equipped kitchen for most meals. We enjoy cooking so the kitchen is very important for our holiday. Even though it was hot, 29C every day, we never had to use the air conditioning. A strong refreshing breeze continuously keeps the unit cool. Eating on the deck was a must for us and we did for every meal. We'll be coming back soon!

A true paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our experience was wonderful. John's condo was clean, spacious, well equipped with everything you might need and very nicely furnished. Would stay there again in a minute. His manager, Rosy was right there to hepl with anything you might need and to answer any questions about the area. We had a rntal car and the beaches, town and shopping were just 5 minutes away. We did see the Maya ruins which was nearby. Our grown kids were able to take long bike rides to the nearby beaches and town. A great lazy, relaxing, stress free vacation and we didn't want to leave.

Wonderful stay at Aldea Zama condo

  • 5 of 5

My children ages 7 and 10 and I had a wonderful 6 night stay at John's condo in Aldea Zama! The condo has all of the amenities you need as described. We enjoyed sitting outside in the mornings and relaxing in the pool after a day of adventuring. It was very nice to cook breakfast at the condo and use the small cooler to pack picnic lunches. John was extremely responsive and property manager Rosie was kind and welcoming. We drove to the beach, grocery, town and nearby ruins, Xel-ha, and cenotes. I will definitely see if John's condo is available when I visit Tulum again and recommend it!

Paradise in Tulum

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at John's in Tulum for 10 days in March. HIs condo has everything anyone would need to make their stay pleasureable. The description and photo's on VRBO captured the condo; pool; and roof deck perfectly. Rosy was most helpful checking us in and connecting us with Juan - who became our dedicated taxi driver. We enjoyed many experiences due to his referrals and excellent service! The condo is perfectly located between the downtown of Tulum and the beaches; ocean; restaurants; and shops. I would highly recommend a stay here!

Superb & Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Johns condo in Real Zama for 3 weeks in January and it was delightful. The condo is comfortable and fully equipped throughout. Comfy beds and secure surroundings are important, and Johns place has that and more! We enjoyed the patio daily as well as the roof top terrace with its great Weber BBQ and a fantastic sunset view! We loved having the bikes for our daily trips to the beach and to el centro Tulum. The condo is super handy to the supermarket across the beach road, and there are SO many amazing choices for restaurants both in town and on the beach, and you can ride to them! The courtyard and pool are pristine with great loungers and fantastic natural vegetation. Rosy is a great property manager, going far beyond her probable duties to help us with taxis, bike questions and water delivery, she's just plain lovely. We're very familiar with Tulum and knew Real Zama was top notch before arriving and also know we'll be back to Johns condo and dreamy Tulum.

Car: recommended

Tulum is known for it's Mayan ruins and it's fantastic beaches. The area is also a protected zone for sea turtles who return year after year to lay their eggs and let their babies crawl out of the sand and head out to the ocean on life's journey. The area is also on the edge of the vast Sian Ka'an Reserve which is the home to additional natural wildlife. The 'cenotes' or fresh water pools are all around for swimming. There are numerous recreational playgrounds that have cave tubing, zip lining and various other water features for enjoying nature but also keeping you cool by the water themed attractions. Yoga, massages and healthy food are all at your finger tips.
