IXCHEL II 407/408 BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED. VOIP PHONE. FIRST UNIT BACK FROM FRONT.

Isla Mujeres Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Our condo is in the West Tower of the Ixchel Beach Hotel. The property is a full service hotel with each condo individually owned and decorated. This unit is on the 4th floor (one back from ocean front)overlooking the pool, the beach lined with palm trees, and the turquoise ocean. The beach is reef protected and has a shallow shoreline that stretches the entire length of Playa Norte (North Beach). It's a wonderful beach for kids to play on. They can walk quite a distance out with water only coming to their knees!!

Rent this condo and sit on your private balcony overlooking the ocean while drinking your morning coffee. During the hottest part of the day, rest on the shaded balcony on your own chaise. In the evening, sip on a Margarita made in your kitchen and served in your Margarita glasses. Everything you need is in your kitchen or a short walk from the hotel.

The fully equipped kitchen has granite counter tops, a built-in stainless steel microwave, a smooth counter top stove, a full size refrigerator, coffee-maker, bottled water dispenser, toaster and assorted utensils, pots, pans, and plastic storage containers for leftovers.

Isla is a 15-minute ferry ride from Cancun. The people on Isla are wonderful--Mexicans, Mayans, Europeans, Canadians, Americans (North and South)... There are a variety of restaurants--local, French, Mediterranean, Italian... Eat lobster at beach side restaurants with your feet in the sand. Jax, a sports bar with their famous fish and chips, burgers, and some say the best guacamole on the island; and the Sunset Grill, with lobster quesadillas, are just a short walk from the hotel. Both offer spectacular views of the sunsets. And, don't miss 'Baseball Tacos,' truly a local treat. Just ask the concierge for directions. We have so many must visit restaurants that we can't get to all of them in a week's time! If you are a 'foodie', you will love Isla.

Isla is a wonderful and safe place to visit and explore. Get out and meet the people. Rent a golf cart and go exploring from North Beach to the Sculpture Park on the southern tip, just four miles away.

Condo includes kitchen, dining room, and a living room with comfortable leather sofa, and two bedrooms with king beds.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with beautiful fully tiled bathroom with large counter area. There is a large closet which includes a safe. There are two wicker night stands with drawers for storage of your clothing. There is a balcony running the length of the master bedroom and living room. Open the glass doors that make up the entire wall of the master bedroom and living room and feel the ocean breeze throughout the suite.

The second bedroom has a king size bed with an ocean view from the window. It also has a large closet with safe. This bedroom includes a fully tiled bathroom with separate vanity area. Other room amenities include a bar height table with two chairs, microwave, coffee maker, mini-fridge, and a TV/DVD and iPod docking station. There is also built in cabinetry for your clothing.

All rooms are individually climate controlled with central air and heat. The bathrooms are tiled with a walk-in shower with glass doors and a seating ledge. There are hair-dryers in both bathrooms and Aqua bath supplies. Beach towels are provided. Renters have use of the pool, exercise room and laundry facilities. Chairs and umbrellas are set up and ready for you on the beach each morning. Just take your beach towel with you to the beach and claim your favorite location.

The pool also has lounge chairs and umbrellas, as well as a tanning ledge where you can place your lounge in about eight inches of cool water. There is a poolside restaurant available for breakfast and lunch with poolside and beach service. They also will provide room service.

We fell in love with Isla on our first trip there in 2005. On our return trip the following year, we felt even more at home and realized we would love to visit here often. The Ixchel condos were being constructed and we decided we had to own a little bit of this paradise. It's the most peaceful place we've ever visited.

We love having Kalak restaurant on the premises. They serve delicious food. Nearby, we recommend Rooster, Bartilto Momma Rosa, Rolandi's and Qubano. There are many other wonderful restaurants within walking distance. After your second visit to the island, the restaurant owners will begin to recognize you and welcome you back.

We also love spending time on the sun ledge in the pool while the Kalak staff brings you drinks/snacks or lunch. Same for the beach. It is a beautiful white sand beach that you step onto as you leave the concrete patio of the pool

THE BEST VIEW AND VERY COMFORTABLE BEDS! LOVED IT!!

  • 5 of 5
What a Beautiful condo! We had rented both of Kim's condo's for 10 days and we just loved it! Although it rained and blew for 5 days, it was still nice to cozy in and watch movies Kim has stocked.We were so glad for the dehumidifiers too. The condos were so clean and Margarita is the best housekeeper! Mauricio was an absolute gem, we couldn't of had a better person to help us with ANYTHING we needed, including finding a birthday cake! My husband lost his wallet the first day and Mauricio found the taxi we had rode in from the market and made phone calls to help anyway he could. The next day a worker from the market found it and brought it back to the the front desk thanks to the room key inside it with the condo's name on it, ID and credit card still inside. Everyone is very friendly and the beach service is top notch! Arturo, Gilmar and Gabriel were very attentive to us. Great food at the condo restaurant, the best coconut shrimp we had anywhere else! Kim was a wonderful help every step of the way and answered all my questions on the phone and emails. We ate at Lola's, Rolandi's,Rooster,Olivia's so many times we had something different everytime and were never disappointed! The best pizza was at Rolandi's! We loved eating breakfast on the patio with the gorgeous view of the BLUE ocean!! THE most beautiful colors we've ever seen and sooooo WARM!!! Thank you so very much, Kim, for the best vacation and the nicest condo! We want to come again ASAP! We miss all the people at IXCHEL already!

We, two couples in our 40's, rented the condo for 10 days. The pictures really did not do it justice. The decor throughout was so welcoming and just made it so easy to slip into the Isla mindset. The kitchen was well equipped and provides everything you need and the new couch in the livingroom is so comfy. Both bedrooms were great and we loved that they both had king size beds. The personal touches throughout the condo really made a difference and did not go unnoticed. The service was great and the staff at Ixchel really go above and beyond. Mauricio, a great ambassador for Ixchel! So friendly and always happy to help you out. The beach is breathtaking and ours days spent there were made extra special by Arturo, an exceptional employee who works for Kulak. We had a memorable 10 days with great friends. Thank you Kim and David for sharing your slice of paradise!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! Our goal is to provide each guest with a wonderful visit to Ixchel Beach Hotel and Isla Mujeres. I agree, we have some of the best staff to be found anywhere in the world. Mauricio does an excellent job and Arturo, with Kalak, is one of a kind--in the best way possible. We look forward to having you as a return guest to our home away from home.

AMAZING PLACE ON THE MOST PERFECT ISLAND!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo met our expectations and more. It is gorgeous perfect views and Kim has everything you need to make your vacation perfect. I went with my boyfriends parents and this was there first time on the island and I can say now we are all islaholics!! We went on a fishing trip, swam with dolphins, and had the best meals everyday just eating like kings and queens. Brasa mexicana is a must for lobster so delicious. We can't wait to go back next year it is so incredibly relaxing and the servers on the beach are there whenever you need them. Mauricio is amazing at the desk in the hotel he helped us out with so much what great customer service!! I can't stop raving about this beautiful hotel and the gorgeous views the best place on the island to watch the sunset either from the balcony or right on the beach. We rented a golf cart for 2 days and enjoyed wandering around and going to the grocery store to stock up. Kim made the whole process a breeze and was there for any questions that I had and I really appreciated that. Again we can't wait for next year as we want to swim with the whale sharks thanks again for allowing us to stay in your gorgeous home away from home!

WONDERFUL VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We visited Ixchel Resort for the first time in April 2013 along with another couple. After docking in Isla, we chose to walk to the Ixchel Resort, about half a mile. Check in at the resort was seamless with staff members who were friendly & organized. The suite was well decorated, beds were very comfortable, and the entire suite was clean and tidy and very complete as far as kitchen appliances and other amenities were concerned. Our balcony was huge and overlooked the pool area; it was north facing, so had sunshine in the morning for coffee on the balcony, but then shade later in the day when it got hot. The resort itself is in the middle of Playa Norte (North Beach) which is the best beach on the island for sunning and swimming. White sand and very shallow, sandy ocean floor makes it an ideal beach for most purposes. Beach staff are friendly and will provide towels, umbrellas and food or drink from the hotel restaurant. The pool area is where we would end our afternoons with a margarita. If walking the beach is your thing, you can walk from the north eastern tip of the island (Avalon) all the way to the ferry terminal with no break in the sand.
We took to having breakfast in the suite, and then exploring, shopping, snorkelling during the daytime, followed by an evening meal at one of the 150 or so restaurants that are mostly within a 15 minute walk of the resort. The people we encountered were friendly and helpful. There are lots of stores to satisfy the shopper in the crowd. Although there are plenty of opportunities to eat and shop, we felt that the island is not as commercialized as the mainland. Everything is smaller, quieter, a bit slower and more laid back; exactly the sort of environment our group was seeking for a vacation.
Some of our favourite restaurants included:
• Rooster Café – great breakfasts
• Mango Café – more great breakfasts
• Los Fueguitos Steak House – wonderful location on the eastern shore, with a deck overlooking the ocean; great for a “special” meal
• Bahia Tortuga Restaurant – best shrimp on the island, beautiful location
• BoBo’s Fish & Chips – not only good fish and chips, but good hamburgers too
• Soggy Peso – quaint and interesting bar with single item menus each day; their burgers are to die for.
• An unadvertised attraction are the churros that can be found opposite the grocery store just off Hidalgo.

Thanks Kim for sharing your gem with us it was the BEST, can hardly wait to return.

GREAT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for a vacation with our young family (kids are 3 & 6) for spring break. The rooms were exactly what we needed (the flowers on arrival are a nice touch). Everything was very clean and comfortable. The layout was perfect. No complaints at all. To the person who complained about the damp smell-the dehumidifier cleared that up in about 15 minutes upon arrival, and we never noticed it again (I am picky about that kind of stuff, and it wasn't a problem).

The pool was great-nice and warm-we even enjoyed it twice on a rainy day. The hotel staff were all very friendly. The guys waiting on us by the beach were incredible-they are not in your face, but there anytime you need them. Hard workers.

We went sailing on Induna and had a great experience. Very relaxing! The location of Ixchel is absolutely perfect. Walking distance to everything. We rented a cart twice to explore the island and had a wonderful meal at El Veradero (would recommend seeking it out). The restaurants were all fantastic. We were sad to leave, and would go to Isla again in a heartbeat, and stay at the same place.

We rented this vacation condo it was incredible! The owners spared no expense to furnish these rooms and the views were fabulous. The owner also left us a thank you card along with fresh flowers to welcome us and express her appreciation for choosing to stay in their spacious condo. The dehumidifiers in each bedroom were such a great plus because last year we stayed in a unit that didn't have one (let alone 2! ) and sheets & clothing tend to feel damp if you leave the balcony doors or windows open for any period of time. There was a VOIP phone for our use which meant FREE incoming and outgoing US calls. Super nice folks to deal with too. In prior years we've stayed in other rooms at the IBH and I'm very picky and I can't say enough great things about this vacation experience and this particular condo was the best choice we could have made ! ! ! !
