NEW 2 BEDROOM IN HEART OF DOWNTOWN. PERFECT LOCATION, STEPS TO NORTH BEACH!

Isla Mujeres Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, with fold out double bed in common space. Sleeps 4

Be among the first guests in this luxury apt. located in the heart of downtown Isla Mujeres just steps away from the world famous white sand beaches and turquoise sea of North Beach as immortalized in the Corona beer commercials. After a brief 20 min ferry ride from Cancun, you will be relaxing on your private terrace overlooking the tropical patio and the colorful streets of this authentic Mexican fishing village. This beautifully designed apt. combines the charm of traditional Mexican style with modern comfort where you can enjoy the casual, laid-back lifestyle of this tiny Caribbean island. In addition to the bright and breezy 9' X 16' living room/kitchen area, you have the privacy of 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The calm, pristine sea and friendly community make Isla Mujeres ideal for adults and kids of all ages...twice recommended by Islands magazine as one of the world´s five best islands on which to live! Guaranteed: once you stay here, you won't want to leave.

Payment Methods: A 50% deposit is required to confirm the reservation which can be paid with a cashier check, personal check, or PayPal (charges to be paid by renter). Please note that the deposit is non-refundable. The balance is due 10 days prior to your arrival. Check- in time is normally 3 pm and check out time is noon. We will have your apt. cleaned and ready with towels for your arrival.

We will be happy to assist you in arranging fishing or diving trips from Isla waterfront a block away from the apt., or day trips to nearby Mayan ruins on the mainland. We can direct you to Isla attractions and the many colorful traditional Mexican community fiestas in the main square...such as New Year's Eve or Carnaval during the week of Mardi Gras...great fun for the whole family. We also suggest a visit to the turtle refuge centre,, , Garrafon coral reef and swimming with the whale sharks in the wild from May thru August.

Enjoy the food.: Your apartment is around the corner from the many good restaurants....Healthy breakfast is the speciality of Elements...Qubano makes great salads or sandwiches for lunch....and for dinner take your pick all along Ave.Hidalgo or try fresh seafood sitting along the sandy waterfront.......dessert for sure should be the fabulous, natural, homemade ice cream at Cool on Ave. Hidalgo. So many restaurants and all moderately priced...sit outdoors and take the time to chat with the owner or other guests. No one is in a hurry so enjoy the friendly atmosphere of Isla......when people pass you on the street, they say 'Buenos Dias'.

Take time to RELAX, kick off your shoes, and remember: you're on vacation!

Isla is kid friendly...local people take their children everywhere and there are always lots of kids on the main square. We advise swimming only on the North Beach where there is calm, very shallow water with no current. Young teens enjoy the downtown scene also.....they won't want to leave.

REPEAT TENANTS - LOVE THIS APARTMENT!!!

Our home away from home; we stayed in this apartment with another couple for a little over a month (and then moved into the 1-bedroom next door for 2 weeks).

I breathe a huge sigh of contentment the minute I walk in the door, and then I head to the balcony to reclaim "my" hammock and let it sink in that I am back in paradise...life is good.

What you will find here that is missing in a lot of other rentals of comparable (or much more) price:
1) The aforementioned balcony and hammock; this has ruined me as far as accepting a place that doesn't have them
2) Private bathrooms for each bedroom with nice showers and fixtures and good water pressure
3) Comfortable king-sized bed in the main bedroom
4) Free air-conditioning (as of now..I hope the owners aren't forced to start charging due to inconsiderate tenants who leave the air running while gone all day). Many places charge from
$5 - $20 per day extra if you use the air
5) Free, reliable WIFI
6) Great location on a corner in town, where the people watching is fantastic, and the proximity to shops, restaurants and beaches can't be beat.

Although the whole island is safe, I feel especially safe here; never worry about our personal belongings. Also, there is a safe available.
Since we stay for an extended time, having the 2-burner stove (many other rentals provide only a hot plate), microwave and full-sized refrigerator is very much appreciated.

The 2nd bedroom is small, with a single bed and a loft with double mattress (think double-sized bunk bed...the top bunk!!).
I am 58 and was able to climb up and down the ladder and get into the bed with no problem, but I'm pretty spry! As a matter of fact, I am returning in June with my granddaughter and a friend, and my granddaughter and I will have a great adventure sharing the loft!

As to the island itself...the most beautiful water and beaches, friendly locals, many, many restaurants, 3 grocery stores as well as multiple convenience stores downtown and scattered throughout the island.

I can't express how happy I am to have discovered this little island that soothes my soul, and this apartment that houses me while I'm being soothed.

Not a great experience

We have been to many rentals in Isla Mujeres and this one was very disappointing to say the least. In summary, it was dirty and in dire need of repair. When we entered the 2nd floor 2-bedroom apartment on Day 1, Missy was "cleaning up" her son's belongings who stayed there before us. She removed food from the fridge and was straightening the apartment which placed doubt in our mind whether this apartment was even cleaned between occupants. Our question was answered when we found un-flushed urine in the toilet and dirty kitchen counters and floors.

Among the things that need repair are an entry security gate which does not lock, a coffee maker with missing parts, a refrigerator with door shelves that continually fell out, the drinking water pump that constantly needed fiddling, two noisy, wobbly ceiling fans, and a doorwall to the (unmentioned) SHARED balcony that would not lock. Oh, I forgot the "toaster" which is really a George Foreman grill. Try making toast on that.

There were only two of us, but for an apartment that is advertised as sleeping six, there is no way that could have happened. There were no blankets or extra pillows available save for one dirty cotton cover (found in a zip bag on a shelf so it should have been clean). We were given one bath towel each for the entire week and told by Missy to go to the Laundromat if it needed cleaning.

Now for the part the really upset us. After returning from breakfast on day 2, we found Missy INSIDE our apartment. She offered the excuse that she was putting a beach chair inside so no one would take it, however, we found she had gone into the bedrooms and turned off the A/C. Moreover, on the last day with a check out time of 11am, the cleaning lady came at 8am and started removing all the bedding. In doing so, she opened the apartment up with all of our belongings unsecured for anyone to have access to.

Lastly, if you plan on staying over the weekend, be aware of the raggaeton club across the street and open Friday thru Sunday from midnight to 4am. Even with the apartment closed up and the air on, there is no possible way anyone can sleep through that.

I've never written a bad review before but I feel that in this case people need to know what they're getting into.

I highly recommend this property. This was our family's 4th trip to Isla Mujeres. Our family loved the accommodations! Very close to everything. Very clean. I can't say enough good about the property! We will definitely be back!

Love The Place, Love The Owners!!

We lived here for 2 months.  We have stayed in both the 1 and 2 bedrooms, and I have been in the 3-bedroom many times.  My review would be the same for all. Let me hop up on my soapbox for a minute and tell you how I determine whether I want to stay at a property and how much credence I give to any reviews.  It's very simple....If multiple reviewers give the property a low rating, there's probably a problem with the property.  If multiple reviewers give the property a high rating, with only 1 or 2 complainers...there's probably a problem with the reviewer.  Some people just can't be pleased, or didn't do their homework. There are very clear descriptions and pictures showing the layout and configurations of the bedrooms.  We had a couple visiting for 16 days and we let them have the king bedroom. One reviewer suggests something to the effect that the couple in the second bedroom wouldn't be happy unless they didn't like each other.  I beg to differ!  My husband and I have been married for 35 years and like each other just fine.  We made a conscious choice to rent this apartment, and as such, adapted to make it work.  I had to laugh at the mention of height and that Missy wouldn't listen to complaints.  If I were her 1  would have said "I really can't control how tall you are and I certainly didn't map out your sleeping arrangements.". Oh Lordy.  This is Isla Mujeres.  Many of the local workers are Mayan, and the Mayan people are culturally shy and submissive and many don't speak English OR Spanish.  I know the young man who was referenced and he is extremely shy, and was probably going for help.  I would be curious to know if the renters showed up early for check in.  Some people do, and then are upset if the room isn't ready.  Go figure.  
Okay then.  We love all three apartments that are part of this property.  We love the location..it's busy, it can be noisy.  It's in the heart of downtown and that's what we signed up for when we rented it.  I love watching the people..locals and foreigners alike can be extremely entertaining (even when not meaning to be).  It's a unique place and I love it.  It's not like home, and I respectfully submit that if it's important to you to have everything be like it is at home..you probably should skip this little piece of paradise.  As for my husband and I and the friends to whom we've introduced this place to (both the island and these apartments), we will happily return year after year!

For our second trip to Isla and we wanted to be in town and this is the perfect place. Bright and clean, the apartment is new and custom-built with smart design choices that give the place the feeling of a much larger space. Designer sorts like us were impressed. The bathrooms are modern with excellent water pressure (we heard a pump come on when showering.) Kitchen is well appointed with everything we needed to fix and serve some meals at home. The main bedroom was simple and quiet with a firm and comfortable king sized bed and an adjoining bathroom.

The second bedroom is two-level space with an adjoining bath. There's a single bed as you enter and a double bed loft above the bathroom. You get to the upper bed from ladder-like steps and once up top the space is just as large as the mattress. Maybe not the easiest sleeping arrangement for older folks, especially those who need to get up to pee in the middle of night.

The apartment is literally in the middle of town. We loved reading on the porch but often ended up pleasantly distracted from the parade of golf carts and folks passing by. Everyone on the island will walk by this balcony and that offered us endless hours of people watching...and listening, which suited us fine, but if you are aiming for a peace-and-quiet week you may not want to be in the middle of the action. Cars do backfire, people do laugh and cajole each other, and children do play on the corner while waiting for parents to pick them up from school. We loved it but were thankful that at bedtime we could shut out 90% of the noise with double glazed doors and windows with the A/C running.

Beaches are a couple of blocks in two directions. There is a good grocery store 4 blocks away and a new mega grocery—Chedrauri—3 minutes and 30 pesos away by cab. And the amazing food streets Isla is known for begin at your door.

Finally. One of the owners—Missy—resides on Isla and generously offers as much guidance and advice as you want to accept. She knows the best places to eat and who owns them. She can tell the places to avoid and the ones worth trying. She has excellent taste and you can trust her suggestions.

Here's the part that lets you know you are in good hands. One of us got very ill in Chiapas before arriving on Isla. Missy was an angel of mercy. She made sure the right doctor was contacted, helped translate convos at the clinic, and checked on us every day. We were lucky to find this beautiful place...on many levels.
