Overview

About the property

Tulum family friendly 2 Bedroom & 2 Bath Condo With Pool Views. (Sleeps 4)

Our home away from home, not a churn & burn rental. The first luxury condo complex in the 24 hour secured development of Aldea Zama. We are located in the jungle only minutes away to the nearest Tulum beaches, restaurants, bars & shopping in town. The local major Grocery store, Chedraui, is 1.25 miles away.

1 King size bed in the master bedroom & 1 queen size bed in the guest bedroom, along with a queen sized air bed. Both are set with high quality linens, pillow, privacy blinds as well as black out shades for sleeping in, naps and privacy. All 3 major rooms have their own air conditioners and ceiling fans for the hot months. Our unit is conveniently located on the ground level with a wall of window sliders, opening to the view of the pool, which is only 8 feet off of the living room. The long & narrow communal pool is no more than 5 feet deep & also has a kiddie pool for the little ones. The front entry requires a security code & all the other gates require keys for entry. We have security personnel 24 hours a day. We have a private Wi-Fi network for our home, along with a communal Wi-Fi network around the pool. There is a small patio set for use on our patio in front of the pool, as well as a private tiled, back patio off of the Master Bedroom that has 2 chairs, a table & a hammock. The 2nd Bedroom closets are stocked with beach towels, sand & pool toys, a child sized life jacket, snorkel vest, pool lounger cushions, coolers & beach chairs. Both Bedrooms have a TV along with a Blu Ray/DVD player and dozens of movies that you can also access your Netflix account from. Room décor is nearly all hand crafted local artwork and furniture. We have completely supplied our kitchen with Tri-Clad cookware, Wüsthof cutlery & every thing you could possibly need to make the perfect meal using all the fabulous, fresh local fish, meats, fruits & veggies. Bring your favorite coffee beans & use the Braun grinder & coffee maker or buy some at the large local grocery store Chedraui, less than 1 mile away. A quality blender is there for the morning, power chia fruit smoothies, or blended mango margaritas in the afternoon/evening. We supply 2, 20 liter bottles of drinking water. Empties can be exchanged at the local grocery store for 25-28 pesos (sounds crazy but most rentals here do not provide drinking water nor a garrafon) We have a washer & dryer & a drying rack, along with the soaps & softeners needed to help ease the load from your packing list of clothing.

There is an ongoing ‘Welcome to our other home’ binder loaded with information about our home, WiFi passcodes for the community area WiFi access (our living room picks it up just fine) the local sights, cenotes, beach clubs & the most important (for us)…restaurants.

An emergency phone number list with the fire station (½ mile away), hospital address & # (1 mile away) & the police (½ mile away).

Bose iPod/iPhone Soundocks set with Bluetooth connection capability are in both bedrooms & the living room/kitchen area for your music enjoyment.

The liquor cabinet drawers are stocked with sets of maps for Tulum & every other region in the Riviera Maya for the explorers.

It is also stocked with locally made incense, right next to the phone # for the masseuse to schedule your massage (not included) for the extra relaxation boost.

There are flashlights (red light) for watching Turtles nest on the beach or watching the babies hatch at night. 2 normal flashlights for late night walks thru Aldea Zama sidewalks thru the jungle. 2 night-lights throughout the condo, which automatically turn on if the power should ever go out.

iBike Tulum up the street is where we suggest guests rent bikes, they can even deliver them to your door & pick them up before you leave, if you choose not to rent a car.

We spend every spare moment we have here & have everything we think we need for a comfortable, fabulous, relaxing vacation & hope you do as well.

About Kim

We are a family of 3 living in the Portland, OR area. We own a small, family run pizzeria here in the land of rain & have been vacationing in the Riviera Maya since we fell in love with the region in 2006.

Kim purchased this condo in 2012

Why Kim chose Aldea Zama

We returned as often as we could while working as hard as we could, dreaming of owning small piece of paradise. Once we felt the laid back feel of Tulum, and the 6 miles of the most beautiful beach we had seen, we knew we wanted to make Tulum a piece of us. And before we knew it, we were able to buy our home away from home in Tulum. Our home isn't a churn & burn rental property, it is our home. We have the highest of quality furnishings & accessories & do our best to make sure it is clean & fresh for every guest.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is conveniently located in the jungle, half way between the beach and the town.

What a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean, bright, and stocked with just about everything we could have needed. It's location was perfect....far enough away from the town of Tulum to be quiet and peaceful, but not so far that we couldn't get around.

All the amenities were first class. Can't wait to go back!!

Exceptional experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Zama Village 101 in July 2017 and loved everything about it. Brian and Kim have created a comfortable and well-appointed home away from home in Tulum. Zama Village staff are kind and helpful, the grounds and pool are clean, and the pool is a joy to be in at all times (and so easily accessible too!). We always felt safe and secure there and the location was great too - near both town and beaches.

The condo includes everything you need: nicely stocked kitchen, beautiful bathrooms, good wi-fi, cozy beds, and extra beach supplies. The art and decor is amazing too, so it's just pretty much perfecto!

We will be back!

Perfecto!! We can't say how much we loved staying here.

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic home base while you explore Tulum and the surrounding area. We were especially appreciative of the pool and AC after hot days out and about (we travelled exclusively on bikes for the week, so you can imagine...). The condo is well equipped with anything you may need and then some, along with plenty of info and recommendations for the area. The neighborhood is perfectly situated between the pueblo and the beach, making it a great launch point for whatever you have planned for the day, and it also has a couple of restaurants and a market in walking distance, which was nice for late dinners. The security and maintenance folks around the complex were friendly and helpful as well. Highly, highly recommended! You won't regret it.

Our third visit to Casa de Calacas

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days at Casa de Calacas in early May. Our previous visit was in late November until early December 2016. We always stay here when we visit Tulum. We love being able to step outside the door and into that glorious pool, cook in their perfectly equipped kitchen and know that there are extra beach bags and air beds if we need them. We like the location because we use bikes to get around. There is a bike path that intersects the entrance to Aldea Zama making it very convenient to get to the pueblo, restaurants and the beach, about a 10 minute bike ride to either place. We are very grateful that Kim and Brian share their beautiful space. See you next time!

Great condo in Tulum

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located in a neighborhood halfway between the beach zone and the town, making it easy to enjoy both. The condo is on the ground floor, next to the pool with lovely shade from the Caribbean sun. Everything you need during your stay is provided, from the fully stocked kitchen to the towels and coolers for the beach. Kim and Brian have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The beds are comfortable, the fans and AC keep the heat and humidity at bay. You'll have a great holiday!
