Tulum condo description

I'm a brand new 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom penthouse condo located in the new community of Real Zama, a part of Aldea Zama. This is just a short drive or bike ride to the world class beaches of the warm, crystal clear Tulum beaches on the Caribbean Ocean. Step into this 3rd floor walk-up unit and you enter into an open floor-plan: kitchen, eating area and living area. Just off of the air conditioned living room is a patio overlooking the serene pool below. The patio has table and chairs for outdoor eating. Back inside the unit are two bedrooms. The Master bedroom has a king size bed, black out shades and it's own air conditioner. You walk through the large closet area which leads you into the bathroom with a large shower area and plenty of counter space around the sink. The second bedroom has 1 full bed and 1 twin bed. It also has it's own air conditioner. Just off this bedroom there is the 2nd bathroom which likewise has a large shower. There is direct access to this bathroom from the 2nd bedroom and no need to go out into the hallway. The living room has a fold out sofa bed. The unit has a security box located in the Master bedroom. There is a washer and dryer located in the hallway going between the living area and the bedroom section. There is also a smaller balcony off of the two bedrooms. Upstairs there is a large private deck which is accessed through the common stairwell. This deck is for the exclusive use to the guests of this unit. It has a Palapa for shade , 2 lounging chairs, 2 long seating areas under the Palapa, a BBQ, small Jacuzzi, sink and outdoor lighting for evening use. It is a great place to sit and gaze at the stars as you listen to the birds and wildlife in the nearby jungle area, or a place to sit and enjoy the company of family as well as old and new friends joining together to share a meal or drinks, or a place to just soak in the jacuzzi tub. The beautiful beaches of Tulum are a short drive from the complex, or for those looking to keep in shape, a short bike ride or jog from the complex. The kitchen is equipped with all of the essentials. It features electric appliances and a dishwasher. There is a large 'island' which separates the kitchen area from the living area. This can be used as an additional food preparation area, or an eating area as it has 6 barstools which fit under the countertop. Outside there is a common, large communal pool. There is an on-site manager who can assist you with anything that comes up from information on things to do as well as any maintenance issues which might arise.

                  Tulum is known for it's Mayan ruins and it's fantastic beaches. The area is also a protected zone for sea turtles who return year after year to lay their eggs and let their babies crawl out of the sand and head out to the ocean on life's journey. The area is also on the edge of the vast Sian Ka'an Reserve which is the home to additional natural wildlife. The 'cenotes' or fresh water pools are all around for swimming. There are numerous recreational playgrounds that have cave tubing, zip lining and various other water features for enjoying nature but also keeping you cool by the water themed attractions. Yoga, massages and healthy food are all at your finger tips.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Hi, I'm a retired Medical Social Worker originally from Los Angeles, CA and now living in San Francisco, CA for the last 25 years. I went to Loyola University in Los Angeles and studied to be an accountant as that was my parent's dream. The course work was easy, I graduated and got the job...but then I found out I really did not like to work as an accountant. So I then began my own journey which eventually led me to San Francisco where I went into the Social Work arena. I received my Master's degree in Social Work from San Francisco State University. I also am licensed by the State of California as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. The majority of my working years were spent in the medical field, primarily in the home care, hospice and hospital settings. I love to travel and back in 1985 I first came to the Cancun area where I fell in love with the beaches...but not all the high rise mega hotel complexes. As the years progressed I went traveling further down the coast and eventually found Tulum...and so my dream of living near the beautiful Caribbean beaches began to become a reality here in Tulum which is heaven on earth...and if you do not believe in heaven that is okay, just think of the best thing you can...and Tulum is MORE than that. Of course this is just my humble opinion!

                  Why the Owner Chose Tulum:
                  I think you can figure out why I wanted to move here, or live here part time, based on what I wrote above. The ideal possibly might have been to actually live on the waterfront, but then I would not have enough left over for all of life's other pleasures. So after looking and looking for the last several years at properties in Mexico, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Belize, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Brazil and the USA, I decided to take the plunge on this property in Tulum. It is new, near the beach, just the right size, close to home (USA), allows me to connect with the local culture and not be in a 'gated' compound, lets me wander on my bike back and forth to town or the beach, has great food, and has great opportunities to exercise naturally (sometimes) and stay in shape

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  I love living in a place which is connected to Mother Nature, where the birds sing and make their noises during the day and night, where little gecko lizards scamper around, where the iguana makes you stop or slow down, where the sunsets are beautiful, where the lightening and thunder showers are so intense that it stops you in your tracks...but where the creature comforts of life are close at hand.
