Aldea Zama Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Our home away from home. The first luxury condo complex in the 24 hour secured development of Aldea Zama. We are located in the jungle only 1.5+ miles to the nearest Tulum beaches, restaurants, bars & shopping in town. The local major Grocery store, Chedraui, is 1 mile 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 checking in & around the complex from dusk until dawn & 24 hour during the weekends. 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, pool lounger cushions & collapsible coolers. Both Bedrooms have a TV along with a Blu Ray/DVD player and dozens of movies. 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 Tulum

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.

Great Quiet and Comfortable Condo!

  • 4 of 5

The condo was ideally on the ground floor, spacious, clean and comfortable. The location is definitely away from all the hustle and bustle of the action but too far too walk to the beaches and town on a daily basis. We ended up renting a car which adds a lot to our vacation budget. Overall, if you are looking for a quiet vacation away from the action, this is definitely an ideal place as it is well stocked with everything you need, the staff of the complex were very friendly and attentive if needed. We really enjoyed this place and the gentleman from Alamo was honest and reliable in renting a vehicle for those short trips around the area. Would return again!

Nice condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at Aldea Zama and at this condo. It was on the ground floor and very close to the swimming pool and entrance. It was furnished with nice furniture and many extras are provided. We would have just a couple complaints about our stay... one is that we couldn't find the bikes that were supposed to be included with the condo, and the location is far enough from the beach, that one really would need to drive or have a taxi take you. (I saw some people walking/biking to the beach, but this isn't realistic for a family) We had 2 teens and a little one, and they all loved the pool. We spent more time in the pool then at the beach because it was free, close by, and convenient. We had many adventures while in Mexico, some of which were stressful (lost my credit card, got lost finding stores and restaurants in the area, etc) but always could relax and enjoy an evening of fun with the family back at our condo. Thanks for a great week!

nice condo close to Tulum pueblo and beaches

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent week-long stay at Aldea Zama. The condo was well-kept and had everything we needed for our stay. Our 7 year old really enjoyed having the very nice pool literally right out the front door. We could sit at the little table outside the living room and watch him in the pool. The owner was helpful providing info before the trip, and had a long list of local restaurant options which was very helpful. We enjoyed climbing up the many public staircases in the complex to the 4th floor for the view. We felt very safe there as there is 24/7 security at the entrance to the complex. I was able to run around the complex and down the bikepath outside the complex down to the beach. The owner also provides 2 bicycles for guest use, which would be great for riding into town (only ~1-2 km away) or down the the ocean (~3-4 km away). Overall, I would recommend this condo for anyone travelling to Tulum who wants to avoid the eco resorts on the beach and be closer to Tulum pueblo, where the food is authentic and less expensive.

Tulum March break

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Zama Village condo. It was spacious, clean, and well stocked with linens/towels/kitchen. We travelled with 3 children, ages 6,3,1. Having the pool right outside the condo was amazing! The board games and pool toys were helpful as well. The only issue we had during our stay was with the door. We were very nervous having 3 young children so close to a pool with no real barrier. Even when the door was locked the kids could turn the handle and open the door so it never locked from the inside. A high latch that was out of reach of young children would be much safer. Every night I had to place several large water bottles in front of the door and a couple of door stops so at least I could hear the kids if they were trying to get out. A little unsettling.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I stayed at this beautiful condo for 2 weeks, and enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. Everything we required was provided and more. It was very clean, and comfortable, and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed the pool, biking along the great pathway, and walking the area on a daily basis. The list of restaurants provided by Brian and Kim was most helpful and we tried several and they were most delicious and cost effective. You do require a car to get to the town of Tulum and the beach, which we did quite often.Plenty of parking, so this is not an issue. There is a large grocery store that is within biking distance that has all you require. I forgot my blow dryer and they had a selection of at least 12! The staff and security people were very friendly and helpful. Twice a month on Sundays, an artistan market is held in the subdivision, with some amazing vendors. Don't miss this event! If Brian and Kim provided the weather also, thank you, it was almost +30 daily! A wonderful area, friendly people, great food, what more could you ask for....we would highly recommend, and return ourselves.

Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Brian and Kim's place in January and had a wonderful time. The condo was very clean, beautifully decorated, and had a well-stocked kitchen as well as beach towels, sand toys and two tvs with dvds. The pool was right outside the front door which our daughters (age 8 and 10) thought was fantastic. It was a perfect location to explore all that Tulum has to offer: beaches, Mayan ruins, Tulum pueblo and the beautiful cenotes in the area. There is a great bike path at the entrance to Aldea Zama that we used for a morning run. The beach and town were a 5-minute drive and there is a large grocery store just a couple blocks away. The security and other guests were very nice and helpful. The best part was the list of restaurants that the owners provided. We ate delicious, cheap food every day that you would not find in any guide book! I would happily stay there again.
