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 2012
Castillo del Mar is mid island. Close to local restaurants and shopping and 5 minutes to North Beach.
We own a rental property on Isla and needed a place to stay while it was occupied by guests. We were delighted with our choice of Castillo del Mar and felt right at home in this well-appointed villa. The incredible views of the Caribbean Sea from every window and terrace were truly stunning. The location is convenient to all the restaurants and loncherias in La Gloria and one block south of the new Isla 33 complex. The mayan themed décor is authentic and the kitchen is completely stocked with top of the line appliances and everything needed to prepare meals and snacks for large or small groups. Each bedroom includes a full ensuite and each room is designed so that you can enjoy that amazing view of the Caribbean Sea! The king sized beds rate among the most comfortable we have slept on and the wonderfully large master suite includes a sunken Jacuzzi that looks out onto the large pool deck. The swimming pool is beautiful and we enjoyed coming home from the beach or town each afternoon and taking a refreshing swim. After we cooled off, we would relax in one of the comfy loungers and watch the waves of the ocean and gaze at the sea for hours. There are more than enough loungers, comfortable chairs, tables and benches perfectly placed around the pool and nearby patio for entertaining, relaxing and enjoying the Isla vibe. Beach towels and everything you could think of are provided and we were happy to call Castillo del Mar our home away from home for our stay. Thank you Phil and Bernadette for thinking of everything and providing us with such a wonderful home for our mother/daughter vacation.
We recently enjoyed a stay at Castillo Del Mar. We had 9-11 people in our group during our stay and had plenty of room to spare. The spacious house met all of our expections. Our group has been going to the island for about 7 years now. This is the first time we stayed on the Caribe side and we enjoyed it. The wind off the ocean kept us comfortable outside, even in almost 90 degree weather. The outside pool area was great. You could stay out of the heat, or bask in the sun. We rented golf carts and enjoyed seeing a lot of the island we had never seen before. The amenties were all there: towels, linens, drinking water, ice maker, dishes, TV, etc. etc. We would definitely recommend Castillo Del Mar. Thanks for our great stay!!
Isla Mujeres has been a destination that I have wanted to visit since I first heard of it some 30 years ago.
We needed three bedrooms, so we decided to find a house to rent using the VRBO site. We chose Castillo del Mar and it was just perfect. The house was clean, spacious, and located in a great spot. All exactly as advertised.
From our initial contact with the owners Bernadette and Phil, we felt like we would be in good hands staying at this beautiful house. The house has a total of 6 bedrooms, but we only needed 3. We were charged for 3 and the others were closed off and not made available to anyone else, so we were the only guests in the house for the week. upon booking, I received a well-organized and helpful guide on how to get to the house from the airport, and tips on how to get around the island. Best advice was to rent a golf cart for the week, which we did. It was easy to operate and just awesome, and I would never go back without having one again.
The guide also gave us local area information including really neat things to see and do, and favorite restaurants to visit. They included links to other great sites and the best one was the Isla Map, by Map Chick. Best map ever of all time for any place I have ever visited. We relied on it for everything, and I can’t even imagine our stay without it.
This house is situated on the east side of the island about midway, and had stunning views of the Carribbean Sea. We woke up to beautiful sunrises from our bedrooms, all of which had balconies and sliding glass doors. We left them wide open at night and enjoyed the fresh breeze, and the absolutely beautiful sounds of crashing waves all night long. We are not air conditioning people so it was perfect!
The house has a pool that was maintained to perfect clarity, we had all of the clean towels that we needed, including beach towels, and plenty of fresh bottled water. We even took advantage of the small collection of movies that came in handy during the one rainy day that we had. We watched Legends of the Fall, and The Holiday. Perfect.
We are home now in the cold and snowy northeast enjoying great memories of our adventure to Isla, and we thank you, Phil & Bernadette, for making the process so easy, and for sharing your lovely home in paradise available with us.
Dear Phil and Bernadette,
Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your lovely Villa. Castillo del Mar was everything that we had hoped for and more. Your property manager Drew was very knowledgable and offered lots of suggestions for great shopping and great dining. We especially enjoyed trying out the many neighborhood restaurants. Castillo del Mar is beautiful. The gourmet kitchen is amazing. The living room was great for watching movies and the expansive deck and large pool easily accommodated our group of 12. The upper suites were very cool. Each had its own bathroom, cable tv, and private veranda. The master suite was incredible with its own Jacuzzi and walkout to the pool. This was an amazing experience. I would recommend this property to anyone and we will definitely be back next year if you will have us.
