Casa Zama is located on Isla Blanca, a long, narrow, secluded peninsula north of Cancun, with a beautiful, wide, white sand beach on its eastern shore and a large lagoon system to the west. As there is a barrier reef offshore, the sea is usually calm and perfect for swimming. Itīs a wonderful destination for people who want to recharge their batteries in an idyllic setting. What makes Isla Blanca unique is that this pristine, untouched paradise is an easy 45 minute drive from the Cancun airport and only 25 to 30 minutes from the center of downtown Cancun. For this reason, all of Cancun's restaurants, shops & clubs are easily accessible.
The rental unit is a 1,500+ sq. ft. 2 bedroom, 2 bath ground floor beachfront condo. The large kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, pots, pans and all the utensils and dishes needed to cook and serve a gourmet meal. The kitchen and dining room are separated by a free standing bar. As the kitchen and dining room are a level up from the living room, both have unobstructed views out to the Caribbean.
The spacious, comfortable living room and adjacent bedrooms lead out to a wide, shaded, breezy terrace which runs the width of the house. The terrace is furnished with a table and chairs for al fresco dining and comfortable lounges for reading, socializing or just relaxing and enjoying the view. Hammocks are also provided for those much appreciated siestas.
The south side bedroom has a king-size bed, two rocking chairs and a dresser. There is a walk- in closet off the short hallway which leads to the private bath.
The bedroom on the north has a king-size bed, an antique Mexican armoire, a comfortable love seat and a charming Mexican tiled bath.
A double fouton in the living room provides sleeping accommodations for an additional two people.
All bedrooms and common areas have fans, and as the house is located on a dune, there is always a refreshing sea breeze. Casa Zama comes with all the comforts of home including stereo, TV/DVD, and wireless access for the Internet. We also provide lots of books, puzzles and games for those quiet times. Check with your provider to see if you cellphone will work in Mexico.
The owners live in the upstairs unit and their personal phone number can be given out for emergencies. If you expect to make international calls while at Casa Zama, we suggest that you subscribe to a VOIP service. As no electricity is available on Isla Blanca, Casa Zama is energy independent, relying on a combination of wind and solar energy with a backup generator. There is plenty of electricity for lighting, fans, TV, stereo and laptop computers. No hair dryers or irons, please.
As the owners live in the upstairs unit, they are available to offer suggestions and any help you may need. There is also a full time caretaker who cleans the house daily. Linens are changed mid-week. There are two restaurants in the area open for lunch, one of which will deliver breakfast, lunch or dinner to the house. Additionally, the caretaker, Fulgencio, is also a professional cook and is available to prepare breakfast or dinner at an additional charge.
When youīd like a change of scene, donīt forget that Cancun and all of the area attractions are just a short drive away.
We can help you plan and reserve any of the Cancun-Isla Blanca area tours and attractions. If you prefer to explore on your own we can provide maps, suggestions and a cooler.
