BEST BEACH FRONT SUMMER RENTAL ON ISLA MUJERES

Isla Mujeres Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome

Casa de Serenidad is located on the tropical island paradise of Isla Mujeres, just a short ferry ride from Cancun, Mexico. This home is the ideal place for families or couples who love all that the island has to offer, and who want the comfort and spaciousness of their own private villa. Casa de Serenidad is located about halfway down the island on the Caribbean coastline. If you love the ocean, this is a fantastic chance to experience it. The ocean views from the patios are spectacular and just a few steps away, your private beach awaits you. A great place to play in the waves, shell, walk in the surf or try your hand at some shore fishing. Well known for it's mild ocean breezes, Casa de Serenidad offers you one of the most comfortable experiences on the island, even in the hottest of seasons. The first floor has a large palapa patio, with imported ceramic tile, natural grass roof and parasitic vine poles. The expansive deck is able to accommodate large groups with a variety of tables, chairs, loungers and hammocks. Whether it is dinner time or happy hour, time for some sun, or time to curl up with a good book, you will find the perfect place to lull away the hours.

The beautiful tiled deck extends into the open-air indoor living area which is equipped with sliding glass door panels that open completely to the outside to expand your living experience. For your viewing enjoyment, the living room is furnished with comfortable seating and a corner entertainment center equipped with a 32” HD flat screen TV and boom box radio compatible with your electronic music media. An additional bathroom is located on the lower level which is convenient for guests hanging out on the lower level or around the pool. The kitchen and bar feature hand-cut Tecul counter tops and is fully-equipped to handle everything from a blended margarita to a five course meal.

The spacious lower-level bedroom also features sliding glass panels that open to the outside. Beyond the glass panels is a terrace perfect for spending a little bit of private time. The bedrooms in the house accommodate 6 people comfortably with a king sized mattress in the first floor master and queen sized mattresses in the two second floor bedrooms. For larger groups, additional twin airbeds are available upon request. The finishing touch of the upstairs is a beautifully tiled palapa terrace with an amazing view of the Caribbean ocean. It is the perfect place to be if you love an early sunrise. During the day, it makes a great private tanning deck or, should you desire, set up an appointment with a local masseuse and enjoy an open-air massage. At night you can watch the moon rise over the water and see the ships pass by under the moon-lit starry skies. …and at the end of your day, you can pick your favorite place and let the sounds of the surf lull you into dreams of another perfect day in Paradise.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Bernadette and Phil, We had a fantastic time The house was amazing. We would love to return sometime. Drew was great. He visited every day, which was nice. We absolutely loved the golf carts. I think I laughed every time I drove it. My husband found tons of beach glass right in front of the house. It really was the best place for beach glass on the island. We ate at Rolandi's twice. The Chicken Fettuccine was the best I have ever had. The Soggy Peso we ate at twice as well. Their barbecued ribs were incredible and their Fajitas were amazing. We had one rain day and walked through a foot of water on Hidalgo street laughing the whole way. We were on our way to Rolandis and were soaking wet and they gave us warm towels. We laughed so hard it was great. All in all this was the best vacation ever! Thanks again. John, Dana, Ralph, Roxanne, Steve and Terri

Bernadette and I met in 1979, married and settled into a small rural community west of Minneapolis where we enjoy the peace and tranquility of the nature around us. The early years did not afford much opportunity for travel but when our son left for college we decided to fulfill our desire to escape the cold and snow of Minnesota and travel to warmer climates. We traveled to many beautiful places over the past 10 years including the Florida Keys, Cabo San Lucas, Belize and many other areas of the Yucatan peninsula. . We first came to Isla Mujeres in the spring of 2003 where we fell in love with the beauty and simplicity of this paradise island. For those who appreciate all that the Caribbean has to offer, this island has it all. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets, gorgeous sand beaches, ocean breezes, great food, snorkeling, fishing… the list goes on and on. Perhaps the greatest asset that the island has to offer is the people who live here. They are warm and friendly and eager to make your stay in paradise one that you will never forget. Come join us!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

We were thrilled to find a home located right on the water that has access to a sandy beach for a large part of the year. After extensive renovations, we have created a place that we are happy to call home

Location, location, location!!! We love being on the Caribe side where we have cooling breezes during the hottest of months. Opening the sliding doors gives you a living experience that can't be beat. From April to October we enjoy having an incredible beach right outside our door. An extra plus - the sea turtles love using that beach to lay their eggs. An extra special benefit is that we are on the edge of the colonia Meterologica where there are numerous restaurants with everything from inexpensive loncharias serving tasty Mexican fare to the well-known Mango's cafe and Monchi's just down the block. There is also a bakery and very nice convenience store right nearby. If you like walking, the beginning of the newly constructed ocean-front walkway starts just on the other side of the property where you can enjoy a 3/4 mile walk along the Caribe.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect for our group of 5. Great location near Mangos and Monchees (sic). Great views and easy access to the small beach below. Spent some days at North Beach but when we chose to stay home the deck and pool were perfect. Never did figure out the coffee maker oh well an excuse to walk to mangos for the amazing coconut french toast. Any question I emailed the owners and the response was quick. They were always available to answer any questions... Thanks Phil and Bernadette .

We are so lucky to have two great restaurants within walking distance. We know this was not your first trip to Isla Mujeres and how you will consider staying at Casa de Serenidad the next time you return to the island. Have a great summer!

WONDERFUL STAY!!

  • 5 of 5
Casa de Serenidad was an amazing destination for my wife and three children (all under 10). Getting to the house was simple and once there, most everything went smooth (other than forgetting the combination for 10 minutes the first night and three freaked out kids!)! The house sits on the Caribbean and the constant waves provided a melodious backdrop to our time at the house. It's centrally located on the island- only a 10-15 minute golf cart ride to either Punta Sur or Playa Norte. The pool was terrific for the kids and offered a great option (more like addition) to the beach for the kids. We cooked a lot at the house and it was well equipped with pots and pans. The rooms were terrific and the open air breezes in the main room were glorious. Our one surprise (could be our oversight) was no phone in the house for local calls to businesses. We had spotty cell service so that initially hindered us but we decided it was in our best interest to just ditch the technology as much as possible. Drew stopped in a couple of times and was great with local information. And we appreciate Berna's responses to our initial e-mails- thank you for being so quick to respond (traveling with little ones is exhausting)! Overall, we loved our time on Isla Mujeres and we couldn't have been more happy with our experience at Casa de Serenidad. Thank you for providing your beautiful home for our vacation! We absolutely loved it!

PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Hello Berna,
Yesterday our group of five women (friends for over 40 years) completed our week at Casa de Serenidad and all agreed it had been a week to remember for a lifetime. Your oceanfront home was perfect for us! We had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation. The accommodations, both inside and out, really met our needs as we spent much of our time in and around the pool while also enjoying the comfort of the indoor living room, with doors wide open to the outside of course! Our only regret is that we kind of ignored the upper deck until our last evening, when we decided to hang out there with a glass of wine and watch the waves crashing on shore. Marvelous! It inspired us to set the alarms for 5:30 the next morning so we could all watch the sunrise from the upper deck. A perfect "last morning" memory. Thank you so much for recommending Marco for handmade jewelry. We visited him halfway through the week and each bought some pieces, then returned the next day bringing pieces of glass we found on the beach right in front of the house. Marco made more jewelry for us using "our" glass, and had it ready for pickup the next day. Truly unique souvenirs from a real artisan. We loved Monchi's (ate there twice - would have been happy there every evening but thought we should try other spots too), breakfast at Mango's, and also happened upon Limon by accident and had a GREAT meal! Thanks also for the tip to snorkel at Garrafon de Castillo - a wonderful day. We rented a golf cart at Gomar's on the second day, and ended up calling them each day to say "uno dias mas". :) They were very accommodating! We had a hard time finding the bar open at Villa la Bella, took four tries, but it lived up to its name when we finally caught them open. Really cold beer! Drew was great as he stopped by to check on us and shared some tips and stories with us. We loved the pool; had brought a couple little floating chairs and did a lot of lounging. The pool is bigger than it looks, and definitely big enough. We agreed that your place is the perfect location, away from the hubbub of downtown and North Beach yet close enough to both ends of the island to see all the sights. Previously when I stayed on Isla we had stayed right on North Beach and I loved it but found this visit I enjoyed your location more. Thanks for all your help while planning our trip, and for making your beautiful home available to folks like us. It was paradise!

Owner's Response: So glad Serenidad worked out for you and your friends. What a great idea to have jewelry made from sea glass that you picked up from the beach below the house. A lovely memento of a wonderful trip together with dear friends. We hope you will someday stay with us again. Bernadette and Phil

RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent 8 days at La Casa de Serenidad over Christmas. The house is very well-kept, comfortable and clean, with a fully-equipped kitchen and plenty of space for our party of five adults. The bedrooms were roomy, and with the comfy beds and soothing sound of the ocean right outside, all of us had the most amazing sleeps!
Probably one of the best things about the Casa is its location. It's situated on the Caribbean side, mid-island, with a spectacular view of the sea right off your balcony. The road is quiet, and off the main tourist drag, but still close enough that a ride into town isn't too difficult. The house is very private, with only La Villa Bella, a B&B, next door (another perk -- their swing bar, and happy hour is the Isla's best kept secret!).
We would highly recommend Casa de Serenidad for visitors interested in a quiet, relaxing retreat.

IF I ONLY KNEW HOW TO SAY "PERFECT" IN SPANISH .....

If I only knew how to say "Perfect" in Spanish .....
  • 5 of 5
For my first trip to Mexico my wife and I decided on this place-Casa De Serenidad. I'm one for one. It's what you look for whether it's two people or six. Eight if you stretch it. What's it like? Waves! All day, all night! Sunshine..all day, all night..that pretty much is what you were looking for if beach front is in your search criteria..you found it! The view and sound is all you think it can be and more. I never pictured 3 Iguana's 5 feet from me, but now it freaks me out :) kinda cool actually! The place itself? Perfect. Good beds and pillows, air if you like something cooler to sleep in and great kitchen if you cook at home a few times. The patio is where we spent the majority of the "home" time. The pool provides plenty of relief from the sun and great at night. You will be glad you stayed here. Drew's around if you need him, or if you just want to hear a good story but otherwise you're on your own. Do yourself a favor and get a big golf cart, you can carry your things anywhere in the back-that includes groceries from farther away than you want to walk. Then just relax, you've made a very good choice :) Thank You Bernadette and Peter-great place!

WHEN CAN WE COME BACK!?!??!?!?!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a not-nearly-enough 5 days and are looking forward to coming back again in the future. The house was fantastic. Loved the beach - it was better than expected. I enjoyed climbing around on the rocks and through the little caves way more than if we just laid around on a "typical" beach. The little pool was relaxing. The open air living space was great. and I couldn't get enough of just lounging on the chairs on the back deck and enjoying the view (and sounds) of the beach! The full moon on our final night really amazed me too. Only tips we have for future renters is 1) Do NOT leave any food out at all - ants will take over like crazy - just a part of being on the beach, but certainly a pain if you don't keep up with it. 2) Be aware that you won't have the beach to yourself. Many others enjoy this beach and will be walking around your back yard. We didn't mind them and they were no bother at all. But do keep track of not leaving anything out on the deck or laying around downstairs (just to be safe). ENJOY ENJOY - fantastic place. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else on this island. We WILL be back!

Owner's Response: Jonah, thank you for your nice comments. Casa de Serenidad is definitely the place to be during the summer months. The ocean breezes keep the house and patios cool and there are rarely any bugs on that side of the island. We are so happy that you appreciated the serenity that this house has to offer. So many people tell us that lounging on the decks or sitting in the pool and looking at the ocean was the best part of their trip.
When can you come back? You are welcome back anytime. Thanks for joining us.
