About Ashley Wilkens

Todd & I fell in love with Isla Mujeres back in 2003 when we decided to take a spur-of-the-moment day trip to Isla from Cancun… as many people have done. It took us over an hour to get to Isla on a small fishing boat back then! Little did we know the impact that Isla would have on us! We fell in love with the pristine beaches, people, culture, food, and the feeling of comfort we had while visiting this quaint island.

We were married in Isla Mujeres on August 1, 2004, which is exactly 1 year from our casual day trip that would affect and change our lives forever. We had a beautiful sunset beach wedding ceremony at Villa Rolandi…what a perfect day! We have since visited the island several times a year and have made some wonderful friends there as well.. We knew we wanted to one day have our own piece of Isla to call “Our Island Home”. We hope you enjoy the island and our home as much as we do! Love the 'flip flop' lifestyle~

Ashley Wilkens purchased this house in 2014

Why Ashley Wilkens chose Isla Mujeres

We were driving around the island on one of our recent trips & and noticed that Casa Mar Azul was available for purchase.. we really liked the location of our home, privacy and it's in the best location on the island..(but there isn't a 'bad' location in Isla Mujeres tho)..we toured the home and immediately fell in love with the spectacular views that can be seen from every room in the house.. and in my personal opinion..offers the most spectacular sunsets from the rooftop on the whole island..Our thoughts..'Here we go again.. buying 'another' slice of paradise...' Life is good and we are truly blessed to own this beautiful home and be able to share with others when we are not on the island..

What makes this house unique

You truly feel 'away from it all' and it's the ultimate place to de-stress....island style! And always tell yourself to 'Always live like you are on vacation'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hola,



Ashley I just want to thank you for taking the time to answer all my questions and for giving us advice on our wedding plans. You were right about Juliette from Papillon Weddings; she did a phenomenal job in making our wedding day stress free.



We felt that we had the best of both worlds on Isla Mujeres staying at your properties. Casa Paraiso was dynamic rough seas with rock crops and amazing views in every direction on every floor. We also saw many cruise ships. Then moving to Casa Mar Azul for our wedding and honeymoon with a totally different view, calm waters overlooking the piers and beautiful lights of Cancun was sure a wonderful treat.



We arrived at Casa Mar Azul from Casa Paraiso at 12 noon December 8th and were married at 4:00 on the roof top of this magnificent home. It was more than we could have dreamed of. We were literally on top of the world.



We rented a golf cart for the duration of our trip and it was money well spent. We toured the island at our leisure, stopping at all the hotspots. It sure was nice to go back to our private Casas to have a siesta away from the hustle and bustle of the busy downtown core and relax with drinks around the pool.



It was an unforgettable experience and we are very grateful for your hospitality.



We made many friends and will be sure to return very soon.



Thanks for Everything,



Jon and Christine Mack

Beautiful home with amazing views!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time to the island but the 1st with our children and they had a blast! We normally stay at the Zoetry Villa Rolandi but since we brought the kids we decided to find a home. What a spectacular home we found!!! It was perfect for all of us! The home was very spacious, comfortable, CLEAN and decorated so beautifully!!! The owners, all I can say is they were just amazing! Before our vacation even started if we had questions or concerns about anything they were always available to help us! The staff at the home were just as helpful! So thankful for that!

Our kids are teenagers so they would venture off on the golf carts while my husband and I would relax around the swimming pool and enjoy the beautiful views!!! The house is located in a quiet area which my husband and I really loved but yet just a 10-15 minute drive on a golf cart or 5 minutes in a taxi in to town which the kids enjoyed! You can enjoy the beach there in front of the home at the Garrafon de Castilla for just 60 pesos or drive into town and enjoy the beautiful beaches there too! This home is perfect for any family with kids of any age or just a couples get away! There are so many different excursion to do on the island. We chose to swim with the dolphins and that was a memory we will never forget! It was awesome!!!

Our favorite restaurant for dinner without the kids is Limons! Sergio the owner and chef is awesome! The menu has a variety from chicken, pork, beef and seafood! Good wine too! If you want a good table outside make a reservation! Our other favorite restaurant with the kids is Oscars! The pasta and pizza is yummy!!!! We also enjoyed Rolandi's in the downtown area on Hildalgo Street! Or you can hire an in home chef to come in and make your meals!! We went to Chedaui which is there grocery store and pick up some things to make ourselves! They have everything there!

We have stayed at beautiful resorts all over Mexico such as Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel and Alcapulco but we have fallen in love with the BEAUTIFUL Isla Mujeres and will always come back here! This is a FABULOUS home and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone!

I WANT TO GO BACK!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about Casa Mar Azul, the owner, and the location.

The house itself: yes, it really is as beautiful as the photos! The house is very clean, spacious, and well equipped. Ashley has made an effort to decorate in a harmonious, creative way with lots of small artistic touches. The A/C worked well (not always the case in Mexico), the property manager was attentive to our questions and requests, and the neighborhood felt safe even though we were in a more secluded part of the island. Plenty of bottled water was provided too.

We took advantage of owner Ashley's contacts and recommendations and had Mia come to give us amazing massages on the rooftop, and had Dinnertainment come fix us dinner and provide live music on our last evening...what a fun way to end a beautiful, relaxing trip! We rented a golf cart, which was useful although we found places to go within walking distance too. If we hadn't rented the cart, we saw taxis driving by available for rent regularly so it wouldn't have been a problem. We regretted we didn't bring a better paper map of the island, however as we got lost a few times and had to ask many people for directions.

I went with 5 friends on an annual girls trip, but I think this house would also be appreciated by any age adults as well as families, though teens who thrive on activity might find the location a bit too quiet. Gourmet cooks might find the kitchen counter space lacking, but the incredible views make up for it.

I highly recommend Reves Restaurant at nearby Casa de los Suenos (hotel) for dinner -- great service, food was delicious, and the views gorgeous. We hear they have an amazing breakfast but we didn't get a chance to try it. Next time! We also enjoyed lunch at The Joint (across the street from the back of the house), breakfast at La Bruja (a long walk if you are inclined), and great Cuban food near downtown at La Varadero, to name a few. We purchased the Isla Mujeres maps at www.cancunmap.com and they were very helpful for restaurant, bar, shopping, beach club suggestions.

The island itself was a nice manageable size, offered plenty to do for those who want it, and the residents were all very friendly and helpful. I look forward to many more visits in the future, and when I go, I hope I will be staying at Casa Mar Azul again.

Great house with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful girls trip to the island! There were 6 of us and we had plenty of space in this house. Accomodations were great!

Long walks in the mornings around the south end of the island where everywhere you turn were gorgeous views. Weather was perfect, although a bit cooler than normal the first couple of days. Was able to enjoy the pool toward the end of our trip.

Enjoyed several restaurants during our stay - Casa Rolandi for breakfast, Limon, Casa de los Suenos, and The Joint for delicious fish tacos. Probably missing a few spots, but everything was delicious!

Rented a golf cart and enjoyed experiencing the entire island, although really enjoyed the quieter south side just fine!

Thanks for sharing your home with us, we truly enjoyed ourselves and were able to relax...for a while! :)

Beautiful house with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

This is house is absolutely beautiful. From the minute we arrived everything was just perfect. Ashley has done an awesome job making sure that everything you could ever need while staying at this tropical paradise is at your disposal. The house is beautifully decorated and very clean. All of the bedrooms are spacious and the beds were very comfortable, not always the case in Mexico. The view is mesmerizing. We had an absolute blast and a perfect stay. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Perfect escape from midwest winter!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from staying at Casa Mar Azul with 6 girlfriends for a week and and if I could have stayed for the rest of the winter....I would have! The photos posted on Homeaway are accurate - the Casa is spacious and the views are out of this world! Ashley has done an amazing job decorating Mar Azul with a the perfect touch of Yucatan style.

It's a great place if you have a group where some folks like to just stay put for their vacation -you do NOT have to leave the casa to experience island paradise. (Also key for a group - king size beds/memory foam mattresses mean you can share a bed and not wake the other person getting up/moving around).

Garrafon de Castilla is right across the street for cheap (60P at time of our visit) access to a small beach/snorkeling/swimming in the warm aqua waters... 'The Joint' open air restaurant is a quick walk around the corner for great locally fished tacos/ceviche and mojitos. Not much farther of a walk is Casa de los Suenos and Reves restaurant on the water.

But do rent a golf cart and check out the rest of Isla! (highlight: stop at Bella La Villa for a pina colada by the sea). Side note: grabbing a taxi on the main road without calling ahead was also quite easy, as visitors to Garrafon are being dropped off and picked up throughout the day.

Is there a downside? I didn't get much reading done while here. My eyes kept lifting from the pages to stare out at the sea.

I'd rent this place again in a heartbeat. Thank you Ashley!

Sunsets-Moonlight-Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

This house is all about the view, do not miss the sunsets from the top deck! My husband would wake in the night just to photograph the moon over the ocean, literally you have a work of art/view from the master bedroom window every night. Everything about this property has been well thought out, all details have been attended too. Comfy beds, which is not always the case in Mexico, well stocked kitchen, bottled water ect. Ashley, the owner is just simply the best, she is not new at owning and operating properties on the island, so she has worked many details out, through her knowledge and experience. The homes location is spectacular, with many food/entertainment options near by (check-out the binder for more details). Make sure to rent a golf cart, without it your island experience will not be complete. I will recommend, as well as will rent this property in the future.
