While in most tourist areas demand for beachfront real estate has become so high that individual homes are either non-existent or they are far too expensive. This is not the case with Tulum homes for sale, especially in the nearby Akumal real estate area. In both areas Mexico homes for sale can be found directly on the beachfront for prices unimaginable in most beachfront areas. The following are some of the features which a luxury beachfront Mexico home for sale in this area will offer.
Design & Amenities
The homes themselves are spectacular; they are spacious, usually with open-concept designs, 3 or 4 bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, large living room windows with beautiful views of the beaches and the best of finishing details such as tile work, etc. Some offer the outdoor-indoor living concept with folding glass “walls” that open up the living room entirely to integrate with the outdoor patio spaces. In the same patio area, there is almost inevitably a large pool, often the “infinity pool” concept which blends into the view of the sea, providing a spectacular sensation. Homes can also be found with a “casita” – i.e. a little home separate from the main property to offer to guests or for a cleaning or maintenance person.
Of course, the whole reason for choosing this area is the beaches. The beaches are wide and white and stretch on for miles and miles in either direction. The Caribbean Sea is a unique turquoise color which on postcards looks too perfect to be real; yet those who see the reality realize that not even the picture-perfect post cards do these beaches justice. Now it is one thing to visit these beaches, and it is an entirely different thing to walk out onto your terrace in the morning and smell the sea and feel the refreshing breeze in the rising sun …
Those who buy homes in the Tulum and Akumal area also enjoy the region’s lush, green nature. Most communities have been designed in such a way to give views of the jungle behind the home and close walking access to lagoons or other beautiful natural phenomena; one of the most unique of these phenomena is the cenotes, which are naturally occurring pools at the entrance points to the area’s underground cave and waterway network. Some are excellent for a refreshing swim on a hot day, and all are beautiful to see. Right on the beachfront, residents will enjoy seeing sea turtles and perhaps be in close proximity to nesting areas.
In financial terms, one of the most attractive features of owning a home on the Tulum and Akumal beachfront is the potential for income from rentals to other vacationers – particularly attractive for retirees or vacationers who aren’t using their home all year round. Since beachfront homes are not common in many tourist areas, the beautiful homes in this area along with the spacious layout of the communities offers a good deal of appeal to small groups of vacationers who wish to enjoy the privacy and comfort of renting an individual home. The accessible prices allow owners to offer lower prices while still generating significant income.
Since Tulum is expected grow substantially within the next couple of years, it can be expected that the value of beachfront homes in the area will also rise accordingly. Plans for an international airport make this potential even higher.
Buyers looking for beachfront homes will be wise to look into the option of the Tulum and Akumal area; the advantages are many, and the prices are still very competitive.
