Get to know us, we're fun to work with!
Here's the scoop on how it works... pretty easy!
PROOF: 1989! We're good at what we do, 'cuz we love our jobs. Some of the best; try us out and we think you will agree! (We love our jobs and clients!) Since its inception in 1989, Caribbean Fantasy, Inc. (CF) has been a pioneer company representing vacation rentals in Akumal and the surrounding beachfront destinations on the Caribbean side of Mexico. Most of our clients are long time guests of ours who we adore working for, come find out why....
YIK YAK AMIGOS: We are commonly referred to in the vacation rental property industry as the "Match.com of Mexican Travel." Your friendly and helpful staff at Caribbean Fantasy work 365 days a year for you, and are intimately familiar with all the properties represented, giving us the unique ability to find the perfect property for your needs, wishes and budget. Excellent customer service and ethics are what have kept us a leader in the industry as the competition has exponentially increased over the years. Here is a fun tid-bit - when we started, there was only one land line phone in the area, so we did all our business by fax - the caretakers would pedal in on their bikes each day to see if they had a fax posted on the board, to find out when the next guest was arriving! The internet was not even a household word...... In the best interest of our clients, our focus is soley on vacation rentals, so we know each property initmately, a huge advantage over our competition. Of course, we have all kinds of advice on just about anything you need to know when planning a trip.
LEGENDS: We are filled to the brim with them! Jack Kirkpatrick ("Mr. Yak") purchased Caribbean Fantasy, Inc. , just a few months after it began, by opening up a US based sales office in Colorado. He and Vera were passionate about the area and its people. Lisa Gunderson, Jack's daughter, purchased the company shortly after his death in 2004, and continues Jack's family's love affair with Akumal and the Mexican Yucatan pennisula. In addition to Lisa, who has been actively involved with with CF since 1990, our wonderful sales staff includes everyone's favorite Jill (2007), veteran traveler Toni (2011,who has been an annual client since 1988!), local whiz Amanda (2014), sweet Michelle (2015), handy Taylan (2016) and our newest hot shot, Sibley (2016). Kay (19 years with CF) and Barbara (11 years with CF), are both now enjoying their long earned retirements, and fun Cate (2004-2016 for now) is off being a mom and writer.
BIENVENIDOS: To simplify reservations, the sales office is located in the United States, making communication a breeze for you. There are on-site representatives in Akumal available to assist the clients once they arrive. When the reservation is paid in full, Caribbean Fantasy, Inc. provides clients with an unique and famous informational area guide, started by Jack and updated by the staff each year~ almost 30 years in the making! We hope you enjoy Akumal and the area as much as Jack and the CF staff have over the years!
