Tulum apartment description

''Casa de Paola' is a stunning penthouse inspired on Mexican contemporary expression and designed for guests looking into a combination of comfort, relaxation and luxury.

Situated in the eco-friendly Aldea Zama area, in the heart of Tulum National Park, the 2 story house offers just about everything you need to indulge and enjoy yourself in a vacation you are sure to remember.

With easy access to sugar-white sands, paradise beaches, crystal-clear cenotes, and Mayan ruins, this luxurious penthouse represents the perfect choice for couples or families and can accommodate up to 5 people.
With a large terrace facing the rich landscape of the emerald forest, the penthouse features 2 bedrooms (2 queen beds), with their en suite bathrooms, a single bed on the mezzanine, a fully stocked kitchen with all appliances and kitchen ware, living/dining area with almost 6 meters ceilings on top.
The private terrace on the second floor features a shower, sink and a relaxing lounge and sofa area. It represents the perfect spot to tan and read your favorite book while enjoying the fantastic breeze coming from the sea. This is also the place you want to be at night, observing thousands of starts surrounding you while sniping a margarita. A truly breathtaking experience!

Both bedrooms are furnished with balconies, built-in wardrobes with hangers, adequate lighting, and high quality cotton bed linens.  All linen and towels will be provided for your stay. Over sized windows allow for the natural light to shine through, and the marble flooring is displayed throughout the whole living space.  All windows are fully screened.

And this isn't all. The property also features fantastic paintings, WiFi internet, air conditioning, flat screen TV in the living room and a spectacular swimming pool! 
Bike paved roads will make it safe and easy for you to move around: only 5 minutes to reach the crystalline, white-sand beaches and the many amazing restaurants facing the Caribbean sea, and about 2 minutes bike to get to Tulum town, where all the commercial and social activities take place.
Tulum’s ancient walled Maya city is 10 minutes distance from the house, and other important archaeological sites lie close at hand, such as Cobá, located 42 km northeast of Tulum, and ChichénItzá in the same direction.
In a nutshell, this penthouse represents the nirvana for handy access to beauty, comfort, nature, and ancient history.  
Come and try, you won’t be disappointed!

                                      Owner info

                                      Year Purchased: 2012

                                      About the owner: We felt in love with this place in early 2012 on the occasion of a long vacation in Mexico to celebrate my husband 65th birthday and his retirement after 40 years of a very challenging and prestigious working activity, that took us living for many years in many different countries around the world. After spending almost two months in Tulum we decided to settle there buying our holiday home inside the newly development area of Aldea Zama, nestled in the jungle and just steps away from the beautiful beaches of the Riviera Maya. At that time our beautiful penthouse was still under construction, and this allowed us to order some modifications according to our taste. At the end of 2012, as the house was completed, we dedicated much time to decorate it making our Caribbean house truly 'unique'

                                      Why the Owner Chose Tulum:
                                      You will enjoy the privacy and the large space available, having the complete floor plus the huge private roof top of the building exclusively for your use. Breakfast on the deck as the sun rises and wine on the terrace as the sun sets. Really a true tropical paradise!

                                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                                      Very spacious Penthouse with all marble floors - six meters ceiling - fully equipped - extra-large bedrooms balcony and stunning terrace
