Overview

Isla Mujeres House Rental Photos and Description

Located Mid-Island, Casa Flores provides the ultimate Isla Mujeres experience. Enjoy the tropical gardens while sitting on the main garden lanai, overlooking your private courtyard pool.

Relax in a hammock on the third story terrace as you swing gently watching the spectacular Isla Sunset.

Sip your morning coffee from the second floor bedroom terrace as the spectacular orange sun rises over the Caribbean.

Isla Mujeres is known for its quaint, non-hectic, calming atmosphere. Casa Flores offers four separate terraces on three levels to take in all the views Isla as to offer.

Casa Flores offers Ocean Views, yet is only a 25 peso cab ride to downtown, where you can enjoy the shops, restaurants and nightlife. If you prefer renting a golf cart, you will be secure in knowing you can park it inside the private gate.

Walk outside your private Hacienda to experience the many local flavors, venders and people of Isla Mujeres. Located in the ideal setting for experiencing all that Isla has to offer, Casa Flores will make your vacation a truly memorable experience.

We can help you set up any and all activities you wish to experience during your stay.

About Brenda Lamonica

Brian and Brenda have been traveling to Isla since 2001. Brenda originally traveled on a 'girls' trip and then decided to let Brian in on her secret. Being in the construction business back in Minnesota, we decided to spend our Winters on Isla. We have made life long friendships with so many people on Isla.

We purchased Casa Flores in June of 2012 and decided to share our piece of paradise with others. We would love to help you make your vacation the best ever!

Brenda Lamonica purchased this house in 2012

Why Brenda Lamonica chose Isla Mujeres

We fell in love with Isla because of the people, the atmosphere and the laid back vibe. We bought Casa Flores after many years of searching for the 'right' place. The privacy, yet central Island location made it the perfect Isla home.

What makes this house unique

Four seperate terraces for viewing every angle of the ocean and Isla and the private gardens and pool make Casa Flores the Perfect Vacation Retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brian and Brenda, not only do you have the greatest Casa on the island, but your hospitality was outstanding! This was my first vacation to Isla and Mexico. Your knowledge of the island made me feel so safe and comfortable. There is no way I would have experienced all that I did without you guys. Thanks for the memories. Meeting all the locals you guys know made this place something special.

Casa Flores: Wonderful home and helpful owners.

  • 5 of 5

Brenda and Brian were wonderful hosts, very helpful and friendly. My husband and I have visited Isla Mujeres for several years so enjoyed staying in Colonias away from the more touristy area of the island. The home has all the amenities needed, it's simply but beautifully decorated. It's just a short walk to the main road to get a taxi even though you're farther out on the island. Nearby within a short waking distance around the Salina are restaurants, tiendas, and a Super Express grocery. Brenda and Brian were both able to advise us on where to have our laundry done, where to get tacos and able to answer any questions we had. Thank you so much Brenda, Brian, and Buddy (their dog) for making our stay so enjoyable. We would highly recommend this rental.

I said to the owners as we departed for the flight home that I wished we could have this casa and them (Brian and Brenda) on every vacation no matter what country, the property and people are just that good! A cozy and inviting casa that is nestled in a quintessential Mexican neighborhood complete with chickens, dogs, horns and the gas man with his catchy tune. Everything we needed was close at hand, from the kitchen appointments to floaties for the pool and plenty of room. Brenda has even labeled the light switches! The bedrooms are both air conditioned and are quite nice with a nice comforter and lots of pillows in the smaller room. The mid balcony off the Master bedroom is a nice place to catch some rays in the afternoon and the roof top is a great spot to lounge in the evenings with a cocktail, friends and good conversation while the sun sets over the cityscape of Cancun. Although the upstairs shower does lack the pressure that we gringos are accustomed to it more than makes up for it with an endless supply of hot water. The cleaning ladies did a fantastic job from top to bottom just prior to our arrival, nothing amiss anywhere. The owners greeted us, asked if we needed anything then retired to their rooms. Initially I was concerned that having the owners on property would be odd but after meeting Brian, Brenda and their dog Buddy I knew these were cool people. It's like having your own personal concierge, just a knock on the door away.

We rented a golf cart from Ciro's, a great magenta four seat and a box beast of a thing that popped and farted and backfired the whole week but man what a blast! We booked and paid upfront on line, walked from the ferry, handed over a drivers license and we were on our way. Ahh Mexico, gotta love it! While a cart is not mandatory I highly recommend one. Pack a cooler and cruise around the neighborhoods for an afternoon, you cant get lost - it's an island after all! Cabs are plentiful and cheap as well. After a night on the town it's easiest to just tell the driver to let you out at Oscars (a great Italian restaurant) and then walk the block home.

All four of us would return to Isla and especially Casa Flores again in a heartbeat and would recommend it to anyone looking for a little bit of what's left of unfiltered Mexico.

Great retreat to charge your batteries!

We just returned from 11 days at Casa Flores. We have visited Isla several times but never this particular area of the island. We winter weary Minnesotans spent nearly every available second outdoors enjoying the beautiful tropical garden and the large outdoor patio. The inside of the Casa is lovely as well. Full kitchen complete with anything you need to prepare complete meals. Two full size baths - one on each floor. Hot water was hot and water pressure was great. WiFi signal was excellent. Bedrooms are both air conditioned - we never used the one in the master - the breezes kept it nice and cool. Mattresses are very comfortable. There is also a very large deck extending off the master which was very nice. The owners were absolutely wonderful. Unobtrusive but available immediately if we needed anything. We rented a golf cart for the duration of our stay although cabs are plentiful in the area and you certainly wouldn't need to. There are two small tiendas across the street that carried a astonishing variety of things. There is also a walkway around the Salina a short block or so away. Very nice for a short (1.2 mile) power walk. I would recommend this Casa to anyone - we absolutely loved it!

We spent a week at Casa Flores and it could not have been more perfect. The home is beautiful and equipped with everything you need. It is centrally located on the island, so we opted to wait and see if we needed a golf cart. We walked everywhere and saw so much more of the island and if we didn't want to walk, taxis were plentiful one block away! Brian and Brenda are awesome people who made us feel right at home! We loved sitting on the patio drinking coffee in the mornings listening to the sounds of the neighborhood! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. We will definitely be back!

Casa Flores Isla Mujeres, Mexico

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been more satisfied with the lodging as well as the Island for a family trip. Our family of five that includes one young adult and two teenages spent a week at Casa Flores on Isla Mujeres. The house was the perfect size/price for a family of five: Clean, full kitchen, outdoor grill and a five minute golf cart ride to a grocery/liquor store for the nights you felt like hanging out at the house. Property managers were always accessible and knowledgable of all things on this small island...where to eat, where to rent a golf cart, diving equipment and the best spots to find on the beach. The Island itself is perfect for those of us that still like to party a little but without the college, spring break type of atmosphere. I suggest renting a golf cart for a week as you can get anywhere on the Island from Casa Flores in 15 minutes. We have been to all the big beaches in Hawaii and Mexico...and this is a top 3 beach with the ability to walk out in the Turquoise water for several hundred yards. The downtown is the perfect size to allow your group to go their seperate ways without getting lost. More than enough great food/drink spots for anything you may like in addition to Mexican food. Seafood options are plentiful and strongly recommend. Great rental house with wireless if you need to stay connected to reality, helpful enthusiastic property managers wtih years of experience living on the island and affordable. The first family vacation that my wife and I found ourselves signficantly under budget with mucho pesos in our bank account returning to reality. The weather was naturally perfect as well. Very accessible from Cancun International Airport. Very good alternative from the large resort cities for those who want a little quieter, low key and those who have teenagers along.

We spent the Christmas and new year holiday at Casa Flores. Beautiful home, wonderful owners. The house is better than the pictures and the owners are extremely accommodating. A must stay. And we can't forget Buddy. We will miss him.
