About The Owner

My wife Lori and I have been visiting the island every winter since 1980. When we decided it was where we wanted to be, we started constructing Casa Azul a little at a time until it was finally finished in 2008. We are striving to keep it reasonable so anyone can afford to vacation on this lovely island as we have for so many years.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1996

Why The Owner chose Isla Mujeres

We purchased the property and built the vacation rental in this location because of the sea view, while still being somewhat shielded from the effects of storms and the erosion caused by waterfront property.

What makes this apartment unique

Only a short distance from the main village, a quiet neighborhood with a local flare

We left happy :)

  • 5 of 5
We came for a relaxing week away from everything and we got that! I recently had foot and ankle surgery and I was concerned about being able to get in and out of places with my disability and when we arrived to Casa Azul, we were placed in the first floor apartment and the first thing I see when I walk in is a closet FULL of handicapped devices! Crutches, walkers, ect. That was awesome! It totally helped me get to the pool on the roof and to the beach just a block and a half away. We loved being out of the caos of El Centro and really fell in love with the Mexican culture that was everywhere around Casa Azul. Our towels and sheets were changed when they said they would and having the kitchen saved us tons of money. We went grocery shopping and at 2/3 meals in our little love nest. All around we felt safe, happy and taken care of. Thank you.

Eine wunderbare Woche!

  • 5 of 5
Es sind nun schon einige Monate vergangen, seit ich auf der Isla Mujeres in der Casa azul von Jim und Lori war und ich denke immer noch und immer wieder sehr sehr gerne an die Tage dort, die geprägt waren von der Freundlichkeit und guten Atmosphäre der Insel und meiner „Gasteltern“. Ich hatte die Freude, die erste Deutsche im Appartment zu sein und ich kann es vollen Herzens weiterempfehlen. Die Lage in der ungefähren Mitte der Insel war für mich optimal. Nicht mittendrin im touristischen Teil in der Innenstadt, aber auch nicht außen vor. Ein großer Supermarkt im Bezirk und kleinere Geschäfte in der Nähe geben dem Urlaub das Gefühl auch ein bisschen dort „richtig zu leben“.
Das Appartment ist sehr schön geschnitten und hatte alles, was ich für diese Woche brauchte und es hätte auch noch für viele viele Tage mehr gereicht. Jim hatte mich von der Anlegestelle abgeholt, etwas das nicht selbstverständlich ist, aber für seine Großzügigkeit und Fürsorge steht. Und das alles ganz unkompliziert und unaufdringlich.
Ich konnte während dieser Zeit auch ein bisschen arbeiten, was mit Hilfe des hauseigenen Wifis und der ruhigen und inspirierenden Umgebung kein Problem war.
Wer sich noch dazu ein Fahrrad oder einen Golfwagen mietet, der hat alle Freiheiten und kann die Insel auf eigene Faust erkunden. Bei der Größe kein Problem und wer länger bleibt und dann etwas Abwechslung möchte, der ist in einer halben Stunde mit dem Schiff in Cancun oder auf einer der anderen Inseln.
Für mich war es eine rundum gelungene Woche und das zu einem großen Teil aufgrund der Casa azul und ihrer Bewohner.
Vielen Dank noch einmal an Euch, Jim und Lori, und viele Grüße aus Deutschland! Ich komme gerne wieder!

Back from a second stay at Casa Azul, for 8 nights this time after my previous stay of only 2 nights in October '13. Just as fantastic for my tastes/preferences as the first time! I love having a home base outside of the main part of town, and the studio was the perfect size for my husband and I. It really feels like a home away from home and if that's what you are looking for, I wholeheartedly recommend Casa Azul! It is not a "hotel" as much as a comfortably-sized studio apartment in a neighborhood predominantly occupied by local island families and some expats. Easy walk to the large grocery store for stocking up the kitchen and lots of great family-run eateries nearby, including the famous (and a bit more pricey) Mango Cafe and Monchis. Be sure to try the tacos at Dona Mari's. We slept comfortably every night with very little/no street noise audible in the studio on the top floor. The shower here is actually better than the one in our own house. I spent a lot of time hanging out on the roof patio and was able to get some work done on the house Wifi both in the studio and on the patio. I absolutely love this place, the neighborhood, and visiting with Jim, Lori, and the pets! Can't imagine staying anywhere else on Isla!

For the frugal traveler.

  • 3 of 5
While we loved staying in an authentic Mexican neighborhood, near the Mango Cafe, Monchi's and many 'mom n pop' cantinas, the condo was further from El Centro than we had hoped. It was 1.9 miles from downtown which was a 40 minute walk. Caza Azul's spartan accommodations provided good ac, tv, microwave, a refrigerator, and a coffee pot, plates, etc, but the room needs its furniture and fixtures updated. The bed was a little hard. A complimentary five gallon jug of water was provided. The maid stopped by regularly to replace the sheets and towels, but no thorough cleaning was done during our stay. Wifi was spotty throughout the compound. We did enjoy cooling off in the rooftop dipping pool and relaxing on the plastic patio furniture. The grill was old and barely usable though. The ocean view was disappointing, just a sliver between some trees and buildings. We also enjoyed visiting with Mama and listening to her stories about the island.

Owner's Response: As far as our distance from town, I can't change that and we are on the site map. The term Spartan was used but as you listed the amenities it sounds like everything advertised was furnished and then some. Your room had a 3 month old pillow top mattress. I have no control over bed preferences, hard or soft. Yes our furniture may be a bit used but furniture is not in most places on the island. I have stayed in many places in Mexico and the US and none of them had new furniture. Our wifi is very good just ask, we have 4 routers. As you move around the complex there are other routers to sign onto. Our sea view has been compromised by the completion of the 2nd floor on the house across the street. we do have an old grill on the roof that is used by guests and a new one downstairs that may also be used by guests. In our price range we and most of our other responding guests think Casa Azul is a great place to stay.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5
The rooms are a perfect size, we had a dine in kitchen, bedroom and living room combined and a good size bathroom. A large closet was great for storage. We loved an afternoon dip in the cool dipping pool. The patio and pool area was very well kept and comfortable. The location is mid-island so we felt like we were living among locals. We loved being able to walk around even at night an feel safe and welcomed. Casa azul is located within walking distance of the Chedrau and some really great authentic restaurants. Monilito was our favorite. Other great ones are Mango's , Monchi's, Kash Keken Chuc, and a must try is Tablita at the north end. Jim and Lori are super nice and hospitable. Jim met us at the ferry and even gave us a ride the day we were departing. Free wi-fi, water, and very cool air conditioning are a great bonus.
We would definitely return!

Great value, great location, great owners

  • 5 of 5
We felt like we had a home away from home. Although it was technically a room, it felt like we had a kitchen, dining room, and bedroom which all added to the homey feeling. Also, the location was mid-island so we felt like (and were) living among locals. Since we like to walk a lot, we enjoyed that we could walk to most points on the island in about 45 minutes. When we didn't feel like walking, taxis were cheap (3-4 USD). As for the owners, we only met Jim but he seemed extremely nice and laid back, but very responsible and attentive to problems. We had one issue and it was taken care of immediately. Also, nice touches were free wi-fi, water, air conditioning - which is rare for this price. Especially nice was that he picked us up from the ferry and drove us back in his golf cart - that was an awesome way to start our vacation.

As a side note, other advantages are that Chedraui (the main super market on the island) is a short walk away. Also short distance is Mango's (the best breakfast place on the island and probably the best we've had), Monchi's, Green Verde, Kash Keken Chuc, Minoltas. Also try the Cochinita Pibil (famous specialty) at Manolitos on Sundays but you need to get there before 9am because it sells out fast. Also, not too far away (15 minutes) are many good bars (also good food as well) such as Bahia Tortuga, Varadero, Soggy Peso, Iguanas, Oscar's.
