Welcome

Casa de Serenidad is located on the tropical island paradise of Isla Mujeres, just a short ferry ride from Cancun, Mexico. This home is the ideal place for families or couples who love all that the island has to offer, and who want the comfort and spaciousness of their own private villa. Casa de Serenidad is located about halfway down the island on the Caribbean coastline. If you love the ocean, this is a fantastic chance to experience it. The ocean views from the patios are spectacular and just a few steps away, your private beach awaits you. A great place to play in the waves, shell, walk in the surf or try your hand at some shore fishing. Well known for it's mild ocean breezes, Casa de Serenidad offers you one of the most comfortable experiences on the island, even in the hottest of seasons. The first floor has a large palapa patio, with imported ceramic tile, natural grass roof and parasitic vine poles. The expansive deck is able to accommodate large groups with a variety of tables, chairs, loungers and hammocks. Whether it is dinner time or happy hour, time for some sun, or time to curl up with a good book, you will find the perfect place to lull away the hours.

The beautiful tiled deck extends into the open-air indoor living area which is equipped with sliding glass door panels that open completely to the outside to expand your living experience. For your viewing enjoyment, the living room is furnished with comfortable seating and a corner entertainment center equipped with a 32” HD flat screen TV and boom box radio compatible with your electronic music media. An additional bathroom is located on the lower level which is convenient for guests hanging out on the lower level or around the pool. The kitchen and bar feature hand-cut Tecul counter tops and is fully-equipped to handle everything from a blended margarita to a five course meal.

The spacious lower-level bedroom also features sliding glass panels that open to the outside. Beyond the glass panels is a terrace perfect for spending a little bit of private time. The bedrooms in the house accommodate 6 people comfortably with a king sized mattress in the first floor master and queen sized mattresses in the two second floor bedrooms. For larger groups, additional twin airbeds are available upon request. The finishing touch of the upstairs is a beautifully tiled palapa terrace with an amazing view of the Caribbean ocean. It is the perfect place to be if you love an early sunrise. During the day, it makes a great private tanning deck or, should you desire, set up an appointment with a local masseuse and enjoy an open-air massage. At night you can watch the moon rise over the water and see the ships pass by under the moon-lit starry skies. …and at the end of your day, you can pick your favorite place and let the sounds of the surf lull you into dreams of another perfect day in Paradise.

Bernadette and I met in 1979, married and settled into a small rural community west of Minneapolis where we enjoy the peace and tranquility of the nature around us. The early years did not afford much opportunity for travel but when our son left for college we decided to fulfill our desire to escape the cold and snow of Minnesota and travel to warmer climates. We traveled to many beautiful places over the past 10 years including the Florida Keys, Cabo San Lucas, Belize and many other areas of the Yucatan peninsula. . We first came to Isla Mujeres in the spring of 2003 where we fell in love with the beauty and simplicity of this paradise island. For those who appreciate all that the Caribbean has to offer, this island has it all. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets, gorgeous sand beaches, ocean breezes, great food, snorkeling, fishing… the list goes on and on. Perhaps the greatest asset that the island has to offer is the people who live here. They are warm and friendly and eager to make your stay in paradise one that you will never forget. Come join us!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2006

We were thrilled to find a home located right on the water that has access to a sandy beach for a large part of the year. After extensive renovations, we have created a place that we are happy to call home

Location, location, location!!! We love being on the Caribe side where we have cooling breezes during the hottest of months. Opening the sliding doors gives you a living experience that can't be beat. From April to October we enjoy having an incredible beach right outside our door. An extra plus - the sea turtles love using that beach to lay their eggs. An extra special benefit is that we are on the edge of the colonia Meterologica where there are numerous restaurants with everything from inexpensive loncharias serving tasty Mexican fare to the well-known Mango's cafe and Monchi's just down the block. There is also a bakery and very nice convenience store right nearby. If you like walking, the beginning of the newly constructed ocean-front walkway starts just on the other side of the property where you can enjoy a 3/4 mile walk along the Caribe.

The house was amazing.

Bernadette and Phil, We had a fantastic time The house was amazing. We would love to return sometime. Drew was great. He visited every day, which was nice. We absolutely loved the golf carts. I think I laughed every time I drove it. My husband found tons of beach glass right in front of the house. It really was the best place for beach glass on the island. We ate at Rolandi's twice. The Chicken Fettuccine was the best I have ever had. The Soggy Peso we ate at twice as well. Their barbecued ribs were incredible and their Fajitas were amazing. We had one rain day and walked through a foot of water on Hidalgo street laughing the whole way. We were on our way to Rolandis and were soaking wet and they gave us warm towels. We laughed so hard it was great. All in all this was the best vacation ever! Thanks again. John, Dana, Ralph, Roxanne, Steve and Terri

Hello Berna,
Yesterday our group of five women (friends for over 40 years) completed our week at Casa de Serenidad and all agreed it had been a week to remember for a lifetime. Your oceanfront home was perfect for us! We had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation. The accommodations, both inside and out, really met our needs as we spent much of our time in and around the pool while also enjoying the comfort of the indoor living room, with doors wide open to the outside of course! Our only regret is that we kind of ignored the upper deck until our last evening, when we decided to hang out there with a glass of wine and watch the waves crashing on shore. Marvelous! It inspired us to set the alarms for 5:30 the next morning so we could all watch the sunrise from the upper deck. A perfect "last morning" memory. Thank you so much for recommending Marco for handmade jewelry. We visited him halfway through the week and each bought some pieces, then returned the next day bringing pieces of glass we found on the beach right in front of the house. Marco made more jewelry for us using "our" glass, and had it ready for pickup the next day. Truly unique souvenirs from a real artisan. We loved Monchi's (ate there twice - would have been happy there every evening but thought we should try other spots too), breakfast at Mango's, and also happened upon Limon by accident and had a GREAT meal! Thanks also for the tip to snorkel at Garrafon de Castillo - a wonderful day. We rented a golf cart at Gomar's on the second day, and ended up calling them each day to say "uno dias mas". :) They were very accommodating! We had a hard time finding the bar open at Villa la Bella, took four tries, but it lived up to its name when we finally caught them open. Really cold beer! Drew was great as he stopped by to check on us and shared some tips and stories with us. We loved the pool; had brought a couple little floating chairs and did a lot of lounging. The pool is bigger than it looks, and definitely big enough. We agreed that your place is the perfect location, away from the hubbub of downtown and North Beach yet close enough to both ends of the island to see all the sights. Previously when I stayed on Isla we had stayed right on North Beach and I loved it but found this visit I enjoyed your location more. Thanks for all your help while planning our trip, and for making your beautiful home available to folks like us. It was paradise!

Owner's Response: So glad Serenidad worked out for you and your friends. What a great idea to have jewelry made from sea glass that you picked up from the beach below the house. A lovely memento of a wonderful trip together with dear friends. We hope you will someday stay with us again. Bernadette and Phil

Relaxing Getaway

Our family spent 8 days at La Casa de Serenidad over Christmas. The house is very well-kept, comfortable and clean, with a fully-equipped kitchen and plenty of space for our party of five adults. The bedrooms were roomy, and with the comfy beds and soothing sound of the ocean right outside, all of us had the most amazing sleeps!
Probably one of the best things about the Casa is its location. It's situated on the Caribbean side, mid-island, with a spectacular view of the sea right off your balcony. The road is quiet, and off the main tourist drag, but still close enough that a ride into town isn't too difficult. The house is very private, with only La Villa Bella, a B&B, next door (another perk -- their swing bar, and happy hour is the Isla's best kept secret!).
We would highly recommend Casa de Serenidad for visitors interested in a quiet, relaxing retreat.

Owner's Response: Marlene, Thank you so much for your kind comments. Phil and I were so happy that your family enjoyed their stay at Casa de Serenidad. We hope that if you ever return to Isla Mujeres you will consider staying with us again. Bernadette PS - thanks again for the beautiful pictures. You'll be seeing some of them on our site in the future.

Your home was lovely

Hi Bernadette,

Your home was lovely thank you for sharing it with us.

The pool was perfect for our 6 year old, we could barely get her out. My brother loved the ability to get away to “La Villa Bella” when the children were too much. How nice to have a great B&B next door. We only had one couple confuse the house for the B&B and tried to come over for Friday Happy Hour. No matter we made some new friends. The location is perfect and my husband had no problems figuring out the island, via the golf cart, on the first day. The beach was gone, but we still snorkeled from the rocks and the waves that splashed up the point on windy days was very picturesque. The beds were comfy and the new living room furniture looked great! We had plenty of towels, space, WIFI, hot water and relaxation. Drew came by a couple of times, but was never a bother. The pool man left the water on and we woke to a minor lake off the deck on the carribean side, but a call to Drew and the pool guy came over and turned off the water. Other than that all went smooth, the way vacations are suppose to.

Thanks again for a very relaxing week
Diane

A Word From Paradise

Bernadette,
Just a word from paradise. We have had a great time. The rain has not dampened our spirits nor our tans. We have had two or three hours of rain every day but one & we made that our shopping day. Yesterday was beautiful full day of sun. 

The notebook is a great tool. We haven't had a bad dining experience. Today we are doing the tourist things...Tortugarama, snorkeling, swimming with the Dolphins , and if the water is not too rough, Capt. Tony can take us to do the Whale Sharks. If not this year, next time. We are for sure planning a return trip next year, probably in May.

Judy is a doll. She does a great job for you. She has been by every day checking on us & giving us more ideas of where to go. I can't believe that tomorrow is time to go, but it's been the best vacation ever. Very relaxing. Your place is perfect.

Take care,

Brenda & gals

Not One Hitch

I am back to work and of course playing catch up but wanted to take a minute and tell you how very much we enjoyed your home.  Everything just went perfectly with not one hitch and that is only because of your detailed list of what to do and not do.  Our trip was incredible and Drew had a heart attack so did not get to meet him but Judy was just the nicest person.  Very cordial and informative and someone you would like to consider your friend for life.  We are already trying to plan another trip and you will be the first to know when we come up with a date.  We did get to see the sea turtles laying their eggs and one of the guys from the turtle sanctuary got us great photos of both expectant Mothers.  It was a sight to witness and I am so thankful for having that experience.  Everyone on the island was so friendly and helpful. 

I want to thank you once again for the opportunity to share your home.  It was an incredible time and we were so blessed to have picked your home.  You will be hearing from me again in hopes that we can repeat our stay.  Thank you so very much for all….
Love,
Kay

Absolutely Breathtaking

  • Submitted: May 29, 2013
  • Stayed: Mar 2013
My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Casa de Serenidad with four other members of our family. From the moment that we walked through the front gates we knew we had chosen the right place. The panoramic views of the Caribe were absolutely breathtaking. Finding the key in the lockbox, we entered to check out our new digs for the week. We arrived hungry and and finding beverages, chips and salsa supplied by the owners was a welcoming touch.

The property manager, Drew, dropped by to familiarize us with some things and to answer any questions we had. The downstairs master suite was roomy, with a comfortable king sized bed and sliding doors that opened to a private terrace. The women enjoyed reading there in the morning. The two bedrooms upstairs were smaller and had queen beds and shared a good-sized bathroom. We stopped for drinks at Villa la Bella - what a great place! Quiet, but very charming with a great swing bar. Then off to dinner at Monchie's, just a short walk down the street. The house worked out very well for our group. There were lots of places to hang outside, whether you wanted to be in the sun laying on a lounger, sitting at a table in the shade or at the palapa bar. There is also a large open deck on the upper level that was great for private sun bathing but also perfect for the masseuse that we hired. What a wonderful open air experience it was.

We did a fair amount of cooking but still found opportunity to check out many of the recommended restaurants on the island.

The dining room table seated the six of us comfortably and there was enough seating on chairs and couches when we finally sat down to watch a movie together. The owners have provided a movie library of about 200 movies - something for everyone.

We were lucky that the beach below the house had lots of sand which is more common late Spring through the Fall. We loved playing in the water and then coming up and jumping in the pool to get the salt rinsed off. There was also an out door shower available. The pool was more than adequate for the six of us. It was mostly used for cooling off and relaxing with a drink. Honestly, none of us were interested in swimming laps.

Drew checked on us often. He is quite the character and very knowledgeable. The WiFi worked great but for the most part we wanted to stay "unplugged". The house book left on the coffee table had a section of things to do and places to eat and we referred to it many times.
Thank you Phil and Bernadette!!

Best place we have stayed

  • Submitted: May 29, 2013

We stayed at Casa de Serenidad from May 9th thru the 16 2013. This was our 4th trip to Isla, and while none of the places we stayed were "bad" in any way, Serenidad was by far the BEST place we have stayed. From the very first contact with Phil and Bernadette, they were helpful, on top of any emails & responded quicky with answers. The packet they send with information and helpful hints before you arrive is awesome.
Once you arrive, the property is absolutely stunning and breath-taking. The patio's, pool, upper palapa patio...the entire house, AMAZING! You immediately feel welcome and at home, especially when you look inside the fridge the first time...excellent touch! There was no detail over looked.
The first night the AC in the master bedroom went out. Might have been from my C-PAP machine. Called Drew, the property manager who was there with in 10 minutes, and had it back up & running in 5 minutes. He stopped by once again to bring fresh towels.
It was such fun to sit on the patio and watch the people swim and play in the waves, and even more fun to join them.
Thank you Phil and Bernadette!

Phil & Bernadette,

I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed your beautiful Casa de Serenidad. I can certainly see why you fell in love with the place. I really just loved everything about it. The location is the best on the Island. We went everywhere in that golf cart and ate great food every night. I think you have the right idea, getting a great tropical property when Minnesota gets too
cold. Drew is the nicest guy and very helpful.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home. We hope to return someday!

Linda

PS. Thanks for the cold beer and wine!

For my first trip to Mexico my wife and I decided on this place-Casa De Serenidad. I'm one for one. It's what you look for whether it's two people or six. Eight if you stretch it. What's it like? Waves! All day, all night! Sunshine..all day, all night..that pretty much is what you were looking for if beach front is in your search criteria..you found it! The view and sound is all you think it can be and more. I never pictured 3 Iguana's 5 feet from me, but now it freaks me out :) kinda cool actually! The place itself? Perfect. Good beds and pillows, air if you like something cooler to sleep in and great kitchen if you cook at home a few times. The patio is where we spent the majority of the "home" time. The pool provides plenty of relief from the sun and great at night. You will be glad you stayed here. Drew's around if you need him, or if you just want to hear a good story but otherwise you're on your own. Do yourself a favor and get a big golf cart, you can carry your things anywhere in the back-that includes groceries from farther away than you want to walk. Then just relax, you've made a very good choice :) Thank You Bernadette and Peter-great place!
