Isla Mujeres House Rental Photos and Description

beach front 3 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, pool, sleeps 8

Brand new Beach front 3 bedroom luxury home located right on the Caribbean. At Magi Azul atmosphere is everything. Massive wood beams, stone floors and rock walls make this Moroccan/ Caribe Beach House a one -of-a-kind vacation experience. Inspired by old European sea side homes, Magi Azul offers laid back luxury with panoramic views of the Caribbean, enclosed Balinese style garden pool, gourmet kitchen and an indoor/outdoor living area. Close enough to town to walk but far enough to have your own private beach. Ocean views from every room. Rent by the suite or the whole house. Perfect for a romantic get away or a family vacation. Opening Feb. 1, 2011.

Location: We are located right on the ocean just outside of town. We are far enough to have nice private beaches right out your door or you can walk to town 15-20 minutes or so and hit nearby restaurants or main beaches. The Caribe side of the island is ideal for snorkeling in the summer and on calm days all year because of it's many caves and reef formations.

Design: During the months of July and August sea turtles lay their eggs on our beach and can be watched at night from your patio. The island breezes make this side of the island virtually mosquito free. Designed by an interior designer and a writer, Magi Azul's emphasis is on creating an atmosphere for relaxation and contemplation. The Balinese patio pool area is designed to be a sunny private retreat from the wind. The rooftop palapa pavilion offers the ultimate in ocean views and vistas.

Ambiance: Moroccan and Caribbean influences combine to give Magi Azul an Old World flavor with an exotic edge. Stone floors, massive wood beams and hand-hewn rock walls make you feel you have stepped into another time. Magi Azul can be rented by the suite or whole house according to availability. For detailed photos and rates look for us on the web.

About Stan & Sherry Fauscett

Magi Azul is our third home on Isla Mujeres, We painstakingly designed and built her with relaxation and ambiance in mind. I wanted something earthy and romantic yet with all the luxuries of modern-day living. I am happy to share the fruits of our labors with all we are blessed to serve.

Stan & Sherry Fauscett purchased this house in 2011

Why Stan & Sherry Fauscett chose Isla Mujeres

If you have an artistic eye and appreciate design, you will enjoy Magi Azul. It is designed to utilize the natural ocean breezes. Even during the hottest months of the year, Magi Azul is surprisingly refreshing. Our location is perfect - directly beach front and close enough to town to walk if you like, but far enough out to feel like you are away from the bustle of downtown.

What makes this house unique

Private Balinese style pool and gourmet kitchen with restaurant grade appliances. A rooftop hammock pavilion with panoramic views of the island.

Can't Wait to Return!

  • 5 of 5

Two families with kids (2, 7, 9 and two 17 year-olds) stayed in January 2015. The house lived up to the pictures and then some! We loved being able to drive around in golf carts all week and there were so many wonderful real Mexican restaurants and beautiful beaches on Isla. The pool was a perfect size and the bench was great for our 2 year old. Even though the house isn't on a swimming beach, it was nice for playing in the sand and walks ... it was also very private. Lots of places to hang out in the house if looking for personal time, but yet still feel like you are together. A huge benefit is Armin, who arranges to have the golf carts waiting for you and anything else you need on the island - it was also very nice to have someone answer questions, give recommendations, etc. His wife Mariana keeps the house meticulous and just loved to see her smile each day! Sherry was very responsive and helpful, too, including arranging for a taxi to and from the airport to the ferry (which, by the way is very comfortable). We paid exclusively in cash the entire time we were on the island - almost no one we found took credit cards so be prepared. The taxi ($50 RT) and golf carts (about $480/week) will likely be USD and many places take USD on the island. We found the Zamba Beach and Lounge to be one of the best places to enjoy a quiet beach, swim in one of their 3 pools or sit in the beach chairs (free with drinks which were very good). Snorkeling at Garrafon de Castilla (not the park) was also a highlight along with a walk through Punta Sur. The house is close to Mango Café where we ate most days for breakfast or lunch (if you crave a salad after all the tortillas, they have the best). Other restaurants we enjoyed were Elements of the Island (breakfast), Bastos (a MUST for the BEST Mexican food EVER), La Bruja (tacos to go were excellent) and Restaurant La Lomita (amazing fish). Oscar's is good if you just want pizza and Rolandi's hotel had a beautiful view at sunset from the restaurant but the food was pricey for what you get. We also enjoyed the nearby Bahama Mama for drinks a couple of nights (the mango mojito was a hit). The only negative is that the house is right on a main road and you can definitely hear the traffic at times. There is a fountain in the pool that drowns much of it out, along with the ocean itself, but just be prepared (the positive is how convenient it is to get everywhere). Lastly, we liked the Tortugranja. Enjoy!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review. I am so happy you had a great time. I would like to elaborate, that yes we are on the main road that circles the perimeter of the entire island that is 5 mile wide by 1/2 mile wide. Since this road follows the coast, if you want a house right on the beach with the ocean as your back yard most of the other houses will be on this same main road (it is not a highway, but a 2 lane street.) In the bedrooms which are all beachfront, you can only hear the ocean. Falling asleep to the sound of the surf is great. Thanks again for taking the time to tell about your experience at Magi Azul. I hope we see you your next visit to the island!

One of the Best Vacations EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, the house and the exceptional care supplied by Sheri, and her homes caretakers Armin & Mariana was the best. He took care of everything from the airport pickup to a great private all day boat trip to Isla Contoy. We got to Fish, Snorkel, Sun on the beach where we had a great Lunch made by the Best two Captains, Lupe, and Diego. Armin also took us on a private tour of the island. If you need anything Just ask him and its yours. From the choices we had to stay at here, I'm sure we picked the best.

Gorgeous home with many places to hang out

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent 6 days at this lovely home in late October 2014 and had the best time. First of all, the house is GORGEOUS … much nicer than most of the homes we saw on the island. Every room is comfortable and beautifully decorated. The pool was just the right size for dipping and hanging out, and because it is on the side of the house away from the beach, it’s protected from the wind. We spent tons of time in the water. The kitchen, while small, was well appointed with fantastic appliances (gigantic fridge, wide gas range with griddle, dishwasher). The bedroom downstairs is very large, with an extra large bathroom and tub. But since there were only four of us, both couples opted for the second-floor bedrooms instead, and we used the lower bedroom as an extension of the living space on the main floor. Opening the windows in the bedroom allowed a nice breeze to flow through the home. The bedrooms on the second floor are very similar in size and amenities. One of the two bedrooms on that floor has a loft space for a little reading or napping. (The other has a smaller loft bed.) In fact, that was something unexpected that we loved about this house. It’s not overly large, yet there were so many wonderful places to hang out: the pool, the deck off the bedroom on the main floor, the loft in the bedroom upstairs, the wonderful rooftop deck, or the hammock room on the roof. The location of the home is also nice – just a few minutes via golf cart into town (but away from its crowds), and minutes from a large well-appointed grocery store (Chedraui). The house sits along a road (which was busier than usual for us because it was being used as a detour for the main road, which was closed), but once inside the gate, we didn’t hear much nice, especially with the pool fountain running. The beach was lovely to walk along (tons of shells and coral), but a little rocky and wavy, but we did find ourselves swimming in it a couple of times. One day, we headed to Playa del Norte in town and enjoyed the white sand and shallow, calm waters. Finally, the staff at the house was wonderful… Armin was super friendly and eager to help or offer advice whenever he could, and his wife was extremely thorough in keeping the house clean and stocked. We all agreed we’d definitely spend more time in this home, and we likely will!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Magi Azul in early August and absolutely loved it! It was the perfect location, and the house is incredible. We watched sea turtles come up onto the beach at night to lay their eggs, and spent our afternoons in the pool with the breeze coming in off the ocean.

Armin and Mariana took such great care of us, and we did the private day trip out to see the whale sharks, with a stop at Contoy Island in the afternoon. It was the most perfect day - obviously the whale sharks are amazing to see and swim with, and then Armin and Diego cooked us the most delicious lunch at Contoy, while we sat in the crystal clear water drinking beer with hardly anyone else around. I would absolutely recommend staying at this house, and doing the day trip with Armin!

We had an incredible time, and can't wait to go back! We even made a short video of how relaxing it feels to stay at Magi Azul :) http://youtu.be/MQVoGB8y-MY

Great layout & excellent location! Bring the kids.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about Magi Azul. The owner helped with every part of the planning. Transportation to & from the airport, where to get maps, what month the turtles would be hatching, all of our questions answered well before our stay. Every detail was as promised or better. The home has a wonderful kitchen that rival most in the States (gas stove, big plus in a beach house). The pool in the front is great for kids as it has a bench on the left side running the length of the pool that allows the 2-7 year olds to stand. The house manager, Armin, is a great resource having lived on the island most of his life. His kind demeanor and helpful nature make the stay even that much more enjoyable. Armin arranged the golf cart rental, whale shark tour, and was just a great host. He also makes some of the best ceviche. My kids were able to release hatchling turtles at the turtle farm. Armin came by and took us to a beach that had a large loggerhead turtle laying eggs. Just fantastic people and a great home. Close to supermarkets and downtown. We would recommend Magi Azul to all in need of some relaxation and good times. The small details here are what makes this not just a good vacation but a great vacation.

Fantastic house, well worth the money!

  • 5 of 5

A party of six of us rented this house last month and it was such an amazing place. As others have pointed out, the pictures do not do it justice! Every single aspect was just impeccable -- the pool, the furniture, the kitchen, the multiple patios, etc. My boyfriend and I had the master bedroom on the main floor and it was heavenly. We were shown how to operate the AC but how can you use AC when you have huge doors to open with a sea breeze and the sound of waves? The bathroom was large and had a wonderful sunken tub. The main living area was perfect too and where we spent most of our time. The furniture was amazingly comfortable -- anywhere else I've ever stayed in Mexico had very hard furniture which would become uncomfortable after a short while. Not here -- we could sit for hours, listening to music, dipping in the pool, and enjoying some cocktails. The pool was a LITTLE chilly but definitely not too chilly for everyone to enjoy, especially after a day in the sun.

The kitchen had every appliance once could need plus a large table to dine. We cooked a few meals here and found everything we needed. The upper bedrooms are also beautifully designed with their own patio overlooking the Cancun bay. The rooftop is amazing with the hammock pavilion and the rooftop seating that offers you panoramic views of the island. The house sits on its own little private beach, which can be a bit rocky, but great if you just want to wade in the water or just sit in the sand.

The house is situated on the airport strip side, about halfway between the island. It's a short walk to a local neighborhood with some amazing food and a little market, and it's not too bad of a walk to Centro (about 30 minutes, but there is a boardwalk area not far from the house that makes the walk much more pleasant). We rented a golf cart, which was great for getting around the island doing bigger grocery store runs.

Sherry and Stan have crafted an amazing, top-of-the-line home that exceeded our expectations. We hope to return again!
