About John Faccone
We live in Arizona and this is our future Retirement Condo. Not quite ready to live here part time or full time, so you can enjoy our condo for now.
John Faccone purchased this Condo in 2015
Why John Faccone chose Akumal
We have spent our life traveling the world. Europe, Australia, US, Canada and Mexico. If you are a beach person or just want to be where it is warm all year, this is the place. We started coming to Cancun in 1990 and have visited about every 2 years. In between trips we went to these other places, including Hawaii 10 times, and have never found anything better. We started venturing down the Mayan Riviera about 10 years ago and realized it was unique. We found the Tao Wellness Center online and last year booked our timeshare at the Bahia Principe Resort. We were instantly sold! You will not find a better combination of Residences, Beaches, Resort Environment and Golf anywhere. Try it out and let us know if you agree. John and Ann Faccone

Fabulous, relaxing, and lots of Sunshine
Our family of 4 which included four adults, love the luxury of spending the day at the beach. We have been to Mexico only once before and stayed at an all- inclusive so this time we decided to rent John’s two bedrooms, two-bathroom condo through VRBO.
The Tao Community was the perfect accommodation and value for our needs. The condo itself is modern, clean and spacious, and once you get your bearings it is easy to navigate the resort properties, which are sprawling and include several all-inclusive resorts and beach clubs.
We visited Tulum and Akumal to do our grocery shopping, although a little hectic the first time we had it down pack the second time we went. The condo-owner John was excellent in making the booking easy and providing information we needed for our stay. Tao community has its own lovely pools, wellness center and bistro along with trolley transportation to all the Bahia resorts. We used this transportation every day, everyone was friendly including security and Rosina that manages the property for John. .
Aside from the resort dining, there are very few restaurants and amenities in the immediate area. We ate locally in Tulum and Akumal a couple of times when we were getting groceries but enjoyed being able to cook our own meals in the condo.
The trip was relaxing and the sunshine was fabulous. We would absolutely return and stay at John’s condo again and if not available at Tao or any of the residences. Our visit (3/29/2018 through 4/12/2018)
Thank you, John for the use of your condo and all your help in making our trip stress free.
Clean, well-kept, relaxing
John's condo was amazing. It has all the amenities that anyone can ask for when on vacation even a printer! Rooms are clean and beds are very comfortable. The TAO location is near many local attractions. I definitely would rent from John again!!
We loved our stay at TAO community. John Faccone (owner of condo) was excellent in terms of relaying information, accomodations, etc.. Would definitely come back next year, and stay in the same condo. Thanks John and VRBO.
Beautiful location in paradise!!
We enjoyed the condo & location. It was very clean when we arrived. John the owner was very nice and easy to work with. The blender quit working one day & he provided a new one for us within a few days!
The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your meals, which we did most days.
The management contact Rossina was excellent to work with.
I would recommend renting at this condo.
Great place, amazing owner
Had an amazing vacation, loved staying at the TAO condo. You have all the conveniences you need and if anything comes up, John is super responsive and helpful. Couldn't have asked for anything more. We are not really resort people so we only went one day, but spent most of our time at the beach in Akumal, Tulum or the TAO pool. Highly recommend!
John's place was great for me, my wife and daughter. It had everything we needed for our week stay. The filtered water avail was great and the A/C blew very cold! (Which we loved) The property is very clean and the staff were very friendly. The process and directions were easy to follow. We also liked the fact that the condo didn't seem "touristy".. there wasn't a ton of people around- It was nice to escape the crowds! I really have to think hard about what I didn't like about this condo? I guess at one point I needed a extra trash bag and couldn't find one - First world problems right!!
