Property description

Wake up to the sun glistening across the ocean, feel the seabreeze as you enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony, & if you are there the right time of the month, dim the lights (almost all lights have dimmers), and let the moon shining across the water enhance those romantic nights.

Amara Cancun is a newer complex with guarded, gated entrance, security 24/7, & walkways meandering thru the gardens leading to the BBQ grill areas, restaurant at the large palapa, pool, & beach, as well as gym, kid's club, & playground, all within steps of the condo. Wonderful panaramic views of the Caribbean Sea, Isla Mujeres, & the coastline toward the Hotel Zone.

The master bedroom has a king size bed, second bedroom has a queen size bed (both of these rooms have built-in closets & drawers as well as night stands & dressers so storage for clothes is plentiful), there is a small 3rd room with bunk beds, plus a sleeper sofa in the TV room with a queen size pull out bed, so the condo will sleep 8 people very comfortably. But 8 is the very maximum the condo will accommodate.

2 bedrooms have safes in the closet just in case you want that extra secure feeling for your jewelry, cash, passports, etc.

Attention Ladies: All 3 bathrooms have wall mounted hair dryers. The guest bath & 3rd bath have wall mounted, lighted, magnifying mirrors, & the master suite has a lighted magnifying mirror on the built-in makeup counter. All 3 baths are stocked with cotton rounds & Q-tips.

With both living room & TV room there is plenty of space for everyone to spread out, and there's a large dining room with long table & 8 chairs, 4 bar stools, & fully equiped kitchen, not just the bare essentials either. When we used to travel to different areas I learned to pack saran wrap, aluminum foil, zip lock bags, etc. I wanted others to enjoy the condo & have all these items already conveniently in place.

Each air conditioning unit has it's own remote control, & ceiling fans have individual remote controls. Master bedroom, 2nd bedroom, & TV room have wall mounted flat screen TV's. Master bedroom has Blue Ray DVD, TV room has Blue Ray DVD & Home Theatre with surround sound, & there's wireless internet.

Laundry room is stocked with laundry detergent, Oxy clean, bounce fabric softener sheets, spray starch, iron & ironing board, broom, vacuum cleaner, etc. All linens & pool towels are provided as well as beach towels, so all you have to pack are your clothes & personal toiletries.

There are numerous upgrades and additions to this condo from the typical unit there. We wanted it to be very nice, comfortable, & feel like home for others to enjoy, as well as ourselves & family & friends that join us.

If you have your own car or rental car, there are 2 outside assigned parking spaces, & an additional assigned space in the covered garage, conveniently located at the foot of the stairs & just a few feet from the elevator. There are 2 carts next to the elevator to transport luggage & groceries from your car or taxi to the condo. Please be courteous to others & return the carts as soon as you are finished with them.

Extra convenient store is across the street, Oxxo convenienet store and McDonalds (sorry, McDonalds closed) is a short walk up the street (about a block) at the Terminal, where you can also take the ferry to Isla Mujeres - can rent a golf cart & tour the island, shop, have a great lunch, enjoy the beach, swim with the dolphins (this particular activity is expensive though) - Isla Mujeres is a great day trip.

There are a lot of shopping markets, such as Market 28 downtown, & several malls including Plaza Kukulcan, Plaza la Isla, Plaza Flamingo, and Plaza Forum in the Hotel Zone, & Las Americas on Av. (not a misspell, that's the way it is in Cancun) Tulum. Suparama by Wal-Mart grocery is just a few minutes away on Av. Bonampak, plus Wal-Mart, Sams, & Costco downtown. Other large stores similar to Wal-Mart are: Chedraui, Mega. & Soriana. All these have bakeries with a wide variety of fresh breads & pastries. You can get fresh Lobster & fish from the fisherman at the beach or across the street. When you want to take a break from cooking at the condo, there is an array of resturants all around Cancun to satisfy whatever type food you desire. Be sure to try some of the authentic Mexican restaurants, a couple are within walking distance, & most are reasonably priced. However, some of the American known restaurants are pricy.

If you are energetic & like day time adventure & nightlife, there are plenty of options such as: swimming with the Dolphins, Tulum, Xcaret, Chit enitza, Senor Frogs, Carlos N Charlies, Coco Bongos (we highly recommend if you like high energy, music, & shows every few minutes - we have taken several people & they are amazed- say it's much more than they expected).

We can give you information for you to arrange convenient transportation from & to the airport (not included in the rental price). They will meet you at the airport, holding a sign with your name on it, then carry you in a private van straight to the condo.

We have a fabulous property manager that will meet you at the condo upon your arrival, give you keys, explain things about the condo, go over the administration rules, then meet with you again just before your departure. Cleaning before you arrive and after you depart is done at no charge to you. Also, if you should like to have cleaning services during your stay, she will schedule a member of her team for a small fee (currently $35 which includes up to 4 hours of service). It is my understanding that you could include in this time frame for breakfast or lunch snacks to be prepared for you there at the condo. That's a deal.

The restaurant at Amara, as we have been told by travelers that stayed at our condo & by another owner, as well as from our own experience, has good food, good prices, & the people running it are friendly. It is located at the large palapa, just steps away from the pool. We think it is great that a restaurant is now right there at Amara - so convenient.

So whether you want a vacation packed with activities, simply time to relax, or a balanced combination of both, Cancun & Amara has it all for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Ray was born in Virginia, moved to the little town of Burgaw, NC the summer before 6th grade. I (Susie) was born in Burlington North Carolina, lived in Siler City, until my parents moved back to their home area, which was Burgaw, when I was in the 4th grade. So, Ray & I have known each other since 6th grade. Were just good friends all thru school & following years. I was a young widow, remarried, divorced, Ray was married 18 years, had 2 children, divorced. He called just as an old friend to have dinner, & it's been magic ever since. We have been happily married, Sept. 23, 2014 was 25 years, & have 5 grandchildren. We live in Wilmington, NC. We enjoyed traveling, started going to Cancun for a week, then 1 1/2 weeks, 2 weeks, & it still was not long enough. Reason for purchasing. We found out about Amara Cancun pre-construction, & could see the potential of growth in the area. We just love Cancun, so much to do there. Due to life happening, including health issues, we have not been able to get back very often the past 3 years, but look forward to the time when we can go & spend weeks or months at our Amara Cancun condo & have family & friends join us to enjoy it, Cancun, & surrounding areas as much as we do.
