About Bob Kesner

Bob and his wife Andrea began their search for a second home in 2010. They considered southern France, Panama and a number of other places they had read about. Mexico was not originally on their list. But Bob, being the more adventurous one, had a strong feeling that Mexico could work and they first came in 2011. At the time, Tao Residential Community was a drawing on a piece of paper, but Bob immediately saw the potential. In October 2013 they closed on their penthouse condo and now thoroughly enjoy their warm and sunny home away from home. When not in Mexico, Bob and Andrea live in rural Vermont with their overly friendly black lab Shadow, and where they enjoy organic gardening and stunning views of the Adirondack Mountains. Wherever they are, they play tennis as much as possible.

Bob has owned and rented properties in Old Montreal, Quebec, Canada and Vermont and has always enjoyed 5-star reviews. Review for this property can be seen at http://www.taorentals.com/vacation-rentals/qi-ph-2-penthouse; review for one of his Vermont properties are at https://www.homeaway.com/128697.

Why Bob Kesner chose Quintana Roo

Casa Mandevilla, our new luxury penthouse, professionally managed with 24-hour security and gated entrances, is located in the area's first wellness-focused residential community of its kind, The Tao-Inspired Living Community, where health, beauty and simplicity reside in luxurious jungle surroundings where the sun is always shining.

From our home, one can take a short walk through the jungle to the Tao Wellness Center. The Wellness Centers offers guests free yoga, zumba, salsa, cooking, or Spanish lessons, an exercise area, a steam room, treatment services and two pools. The property includes an award-winning 27-hole Robert Trent Jones golf course, the community Infinity pool overlooking the golf course, and access to two (soon to be three) private beaches on the magnificent Mayan Riviera ocean.

Our high-end condo reflects the surrounding jungle and natural beauty, and incorporates local Mayan- and Mexican-made furnishings wherever possible, including Mexican-made dining table, chairs & sofa; exquisite Tzalum hardwood trim and furnishings; Mexican-made outdoor furnishings; and paintings by local artists.

Casa Mandevilla is one of a select few penthouse condos that successfully melds together Mayan, Mexican and contemporary elements with natural beauty that are guaranteed to provide a unique vacation experience.

What makes this condo unique

Tao Residential Community is unique in its commitment to wellness and environmental mindfulness. Upon arriving you will immediately notice how Tao is build to blend with its tropical surroundings and give its residents a feeling of peace and relaxation. Coffee on the rooftop is a daily pleasure here. 360 degree views of a pristine jungle paradise where the sun is always shining and the sound of tropical birdsong are a magnificent way to start your day. The area offers so many active adventures, from sea kayaking in a 2.8 million acre nature preserve to climbing ancient ruins to diving in cenotes. And if that's not your style, there's always a quiet day on the beach. You will find it all here from your home base at Tao.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Perfect trip!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the condo and the area. The condo is located in the beautiful Tao Wellness Community with very close proximity to the pool. A golf-cart shuttle takes you to other nearby properties which lets you experience the resorts. We found this to the right balance for us. Great nearby (car) restaurants. We look forward to coming back soon!

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bob and Andrea's place for 8 days and absolutely loved it. The condo is beautiful, immaculately maintained, with all the amenities of home.

It was our first time in the Akumal/Tulum area and we thought it was great. Wonderful, inexpensive restaurants nearby. You had access to the resort beaches if you wished, but we decided to drive to Tulum and enjoy the beaches there too, they were beautiful.

Bob and Andrea gave us detailed notes ahead of time which covered every topic you could think of and were very helpful.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone thinking of staying on the Yucatan Peninsula. You cannot go wrong!

Marvelous place in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Mexico was in every way positive. The country of Mexico is beautiful, the people are terrific, weather is wonderful and the accommodation at Bob and Andreas place “in the jungle” is top nodge. We had a wonderful time at the property with all updated amenities and an outstanding view from the roof top where you get so close to the moon in the nighttime that you nearly could grab it.

The Bahia Principle people were very professional, helpful and willing to do whatever was necessary to make our stay a nice one.

Bob was very responsive from first contact and on requests and questions we had.

We highly recommend this place!

Excellent comfort and convenience.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to visit with plenty of nearby options for activities and excursions. On site facilities are excellent and plentiful. Love the lap pool and fitness center - not to mention the resort pool. Beautiful golf course minutes away. Touring to nearby areas is very convenient (we highly recommend Tulum, Xel Ha and Si’an Kaan Biopreserve) and there are many other options. Great beaches very close.

The penthouse is an incredibly comfortable and well furnished retreat (nice new TV!!) for relaxing and unwinding in a quiet setting. Great fully furnished kitchen with many markets nearby to access local and international foods from produce to seafood. We also enjoy the huge selection of restaurant choices nearby.

Large private rooftop terrace has great views of the country surrounding a special retreat and is furnished like an outdoor living room. The terrace container plantings blend nicely with the natural setting. We love looking for and listening to the variety of bird life from both outdoor verandas.

Service is excellent and the local people are so happy to help you enjoy the area. The grounds in the development are a peaceful park to enjoy walks and scenery. We highly recommended this location to our friends and family.

Very clean and well maintained.

Akumal
Car: recommended

Akumal is located in the heart of the Mayan Riviera. Akumal means 'turtle' in Mayan, and the village of Akumal hugs the bay where endangered sea turtles come home to nest. It is the quintessential laid-back Mexican coastal village where locals, tourists and expats from around the world meet. Visitors enjoy beautiful beaches, excellent snorkeling, colorful eateries, and artful shops in the safe and peaceful Mayan atmosphere. You can even swim with the turtles in Turtle Bay. Just 20 miles south of Akumal is the village of Tulum, with a multitude of shops and authentic restaurants. From the village of Tulum, one can rent bikes and ride to trendy Tulum beach dotted with boutique eco hotels along magnificent Tulum Beach. Tulum Beach has been voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. This area is also replete with Mayan ruins, the most famous being the Tulum ruins just north of the village. Other short days trips will get you to the ruins of Coba, Muyil, and El Balam to name just a few. In addition, there is snorkeling, cenotes, sea kayaking, trips through the S'ian Kaan Nature Reserve, and much much more.
