Overview

About the property

Tulum family friendly 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 minutes away to the nearest Tulum beaches, restaurants, bars & shopping in town. The local major Grocery store, Chedraui, is 1.25 miles 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, snorkel vest, pool lounger cushions & collapsible coolers & beach chairs. Both Bedrooms have a TV along with a Blu Ray/DVD player and dozens of movies that you can also access your Netflix account from. 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.

Our third visit to Casa de Calacas

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days at Casa de Calacas in early May. Our previous visit was in late November until early December 2016. We always stay here when we visit Tulum. We love being able to step outside the door and into that glorious pool, cook in their perfectly equipped kitchen and know that there are extra beach bags and air beds if we need them. We like the location because we use bikes to get around. There is a bike path that intersects the entrance to Aldea Zama making it very convenient to get to the pueblo, restaurants and the beach, about a 10 minute bike ride to either place. We are very grateful that Kim and Brian share their beautiful space. See you next time!

Great condo in Tulum

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located in a neighborhood halfway between the beach zone and the town, making it easy to enjoy both. The condo is on the ground floor, next to the pool with lovely shade from the Caribbean sun. Everything you need during your stay is provided, from the fully stocked kitchen to the towels and coolers for the beach. Kim and Brian have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. The beds are comfortable, the fans and AC keep the heat and humidity at bay. You'll have a great holiday!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very comfortable (our party consisted of my husband and I and our two millennial daughters) and had everything we needed. Daniella, the property manager, was very friendly, and accommodating. We let her know when we would arrive, and she met us at the condo to explain everything and give us helpful info about the area.

One slight negative. The condo complex (Zama Village) where this condo is located is completed, occupied, and nice, but the whole area around it was not exactly what we expected. Zama Vilage is part of a very large development (Aldea Zama)which is still being completed so there are a fair number of partially cleared areas and, I don't know, just kind of rubble. It wasn't noisy because it didn't appear like much work was being done. It was easy enough to take the short drive to the beach or the town, but Aldea Zama is not in and of itself a very pleasant or interesting place to walk. The beach and town are not short walks. Biking is fine, but that wasn't an option for us. Also, I wouldn't want to bike at night. Most bikes have no lights or even reflectors, and the beach road is very congested.

All in all though, we loved Tulum, liked the condo and had a great stay!

Perfect condo, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent a perfect 2-week vacation in Tulum at Kim and Brian's condo. We were so impressed with how well stocked the condo was, it had everything we needed. The kitchen knives were even sharp! Kim provided us with extensive information and wonderful restaurant recommendations before our arrival so we knew exactly what to expect.

The condo is in a wonderful location halfway between the beach and the town. We rented bikes and the area is very accessible on bike, the bike path is a flat and easy ride either to the beach or the town. We loved the location of the condo on the first floor with access to the pool right outside the door. The property manager, Daniella was fantastic and kept in touch to make sure we were happy.

Thank you Kim, Brian and Daniella! We will definitely be back soon :)

Absolutely wonderful! Had everything you could possibly need and felt very safe!

  • 5 of 5

Kim's apartment was awesome. She provided everything you could need for a very enjoyable vacation. The apartment is in a perfect location, placed right between the town and the beach. We rented bikes and were able to bike everywhere! The apartment was very clean and felt very safe. Our first morning there the property manager Daniella came to greet us and made sure we had everything, and even drove us to get our bikes! She was super friendly and gave us tons of restaurant recommentions which were all fabulous! The apartment complex always had lots of parking spots and places for us to lock up our bikes, and with the 24/7 security guard we never worried about our stuff. This place was wonderful for our vacation with friends, lots of space, awesome pool and so well decorated! Perfect place for an enjoyable and fun vacation!

Clean, Amazing Condo in the Heart of Tulum

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect from Kim, the owner, offering advice prior to the trip to meeting Daniella, the property manager, on check-in day. The condo itself is clean, easy access, bedrooms and bathrooms updated, beds are comfortable, kitchen is well-stocked with cooking supplies. Pool is clean and refreshing, coffee in the mornings on patio furniture by the pool. They have snorkeling gear, beach chairs/bags/coolers/towels/mats/ pool toys. The condo is inside the Aldea Zama development -- which is in between the Tulum "pueblo" or town, and the beach town of Tulum. 5 min car ride to beach or about 20 min ride on bicycle. We rented bikes near by. Daniella was very helpful and answered our questions and provided us with suggestions on where to rent bikes, eat, adventures, etc. I would highly recommend this place! Wonderful stay.
