                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2013

                          About: Since semi-retiring from our life’s work in Education and Marketing, respectively, my wife and I began searching for a place we could call home during some of Vermont’s winters. We are active—play competitive tennis, garden, hike, bike, snorkel, yoga—and wanted a locale that could also provide us with an active lifestyle. We have also owned and rented properties in Canada and the U.S., all of which have had 5-star ratings, and we fully expect to provide the same level of service for Casa Blanco, our new Tao-Inspired luxury penthouse condo.

                          Why Akumal:
                          We have both travelled extensively, visiting over 25 countries throughout the world, but didn’t feel like any place we had already been fit our criteria for a home away from home AND one that was not too far from our home in Vermont, family and friends throughout the U.S. We’ve visited the west coast of Mexico, the central Yucatan region, and the Mayan Riviera. The Mayan Riviera offers all that we were hoping to find: spectacular weather, beautiful beaches, a lush jungle, a gentle and welcoming culture, and a relaxed atmosphere. We are very active, so we enjoy the opportunity to play tennis, snorkel, walk to yoga classes, and explore new and interesting things. Our next adventure is to learn Spanish! The Tao Wellness Center, offering yoga, meditation classes, Spanish classes and other life-long learning options, is a 3-minute walk from our place, as is the community infinity pool. The quiet beauty of the jungle, the adjoining 27-hole golf course and the proximity to the ocean add to the overall experience. We also enjoy diversity and being introduced to new cultures, and find both here--Mexican, Mayan and the new arrivals from all over the world.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          •Mexican-made dining table and chairs, sofa •Exquisite Tzalum Mexican hardwood trim and furnishings •Handmade Jacuzzi trim and Mexican outdoor furniture in the upper terrace that compliment the private sunning area
