About Tim & Deborah Schramko


My name is Deborah. My husband, Tim, and I have been traveling to the Cancun, Mexico area for the past 10 years. Although we had been to numerous resorts in the Cancun region, when the LaAmada construction was finalized in 2009, we visited the development and fell in love with the location, luxury & privacy of the prestigious LaAmada community and its world class marina. After several years of dreaming of owning a property in LaAmada, we came upon an opportunity to lease a LaAmada penthouse unit from Alvin Downs, who purchased the unit back in 2008. On the third day of our stay in this amazing LaAmada penthouse, we knew we had to find a way to own this incredible property! Although the property was not currently for sale, after much discussion, Alvin graciously accepted our offer to purchase and we were successful at acquiring this beautiful Caribbean gem! Over the 5 years that Alvin owned the property, he had hundreds of guests from all over the world stay at his beautiful condo and enjoy La Amada as much as we did. It is with open arms and open hearts that Tim and I welcome all past guests back to this slice of paradise, and encourage future guests to consider this amazing experience as well. We are absolutely committed to providing the same excellent service to which previous guests have become accustomed. Ernesto will be continuing to actively manage the property on our behalf, and provide any requested services to make your stay comfortable; including transportation to and from the airport, purchasing groceries and beverages for your arrival, private cooking, as desired, and assisting in any way he can to meet your vacation needs! We are excited to share an amazing part of our world with you! All the Best, Deborah & Tim

Relaxing oasis and very friendly staff

  • 5 of 5

La Amada is about 15 min drive from restaurants and shopping areas but worth the driving.

Deborah's condo is even nicer than in the pics. Ernesto was great. Well equipped and supplied. Very comfortable beds. Very quiet. This condo is part of a large complex that didn't do well during the recession. As a result not all units were sold and it was sold off in pieces to different developers. But this has not affected up keep or service. Other than the beach club which had nice light fare (ceviche guacamole salad fresh coconut) however there are not restaurants in the part of the complex where the condo is located. There is one hotel that will allow non-guests but it was about a mile away and since we had no car we would just take taxies downtown or to hotel zone. My family loved that we had so much Undisturbed peace and quiet! The spa was beautiful but we decided to use an independent spa in the hotel zone called bamboo spa which was great and less than half the price. Overall we highly recommend this condo if you are looking for luxury and a bit of solitude!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely relaxing time here at this location. Ernesto was the best of answering questions, groceries prior to arriving and dinner recommendations. The condo itself was beautiful, we all took naps on the patio in the beds/loungers. We only had 5 people on the beach or pool. The beach pool and beach, we were served by the restaurant at the beach club. We walked down on the lighted trail to the hotel. Just ck into hotel with your I'd and let them know you want to eat there. Great relaxing vacation. Be sure to get your pessos at the airport and enough for your visitime. It is expensive to exchange there and best to use them. Loved the condo for our family and roof pool!

Gorgeous private and quiet!

  • 5 of 5

We rented 2 penthouse condos - one being this one and one across the hallway. Both of the units are managed by Ernesto. This condo was absolutely stunning and our group of 8 people enjoyed every minute in the 2 units. The unit is very comfortable with everything you need for a week stay. There are 2 beautiful seperate bedrooms/bathrooms and they are comfortable, clean and large. The King suite was incredible with a comfy bed, seperate bathtub, glorious rain shower and patio door to the super large deck. The other bedroom has a Queen bed with a futon for extra guests and a small kitchen area. That room also has a whirlpool tub in the bathroom. The main area is equally beautiful and large. The kitchen has everthing needed (a few more kitchen towels would be nice) There is wifi that worked great and satellite TV so you can watch TV if needed but you are in Mexico so that is unnecessary to us! The view from the property is more jungle but it is serene. We loved the view from the other unit as it looked out directly over the Marina and there was much to see. There is bottled water provided and there is a washer/dryer combo machine if you want to do laundry. Be aware that it really doesn't dry the clothes so there is a drying rack provided and we had no problem with the clothes drying on the deck.

Ernesto is a great caretaker and he was readily available by phone. He cooked for us the first evening and it was an amazing dinner - (we should have had him cook for us multiple times) He will also provide transportation and other services but we made those plans ourselves.

In regards to the property, be aware that it is quite quiet. The beach is awesome and the beach club is gorgeous and we pretty much had the property to ourselves. We had many drinks and lunches at the beach club and the prices and quality of food and drink is excellent. We scheduled a private dinner on our last night there and again it was outstanding - would do that more than once as well. You do however have to book that the day before. They were so accomodating that they even changed their day off to cook for us!

We would totally recommend this property if you are looking for a quiet place to totally unwind and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

As far as the owner, she is great to work with. She and her husband had just purchased the property and she has great communication - I highly suggest renting their place!

Oh - the rooftop pool is amazing!

Forgot how great it was!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th time in the Amada, and also the 4th time in this very same apartment.

Last time, was 2 years ago, and I forget how great the place was. It's very luxurious, and has a nice layout and design. Two separate units, so you can also ask someone to join you.

The beach and the spa are just minutes away. While the shopping mall and cinema are at 15 minutes driver. I do recommend a car when you stay here!
