About the property

Studio Apartments/Suites

1 or 2 private suites.

The incredible view and graceful arches of this 2 story ocean front home welcomes you to Isla Mujeres, the eastern most part of Mexico in the breathtaking Caribbean. Just a 15 minute ferry ride to Cancun.

Our home is located in the quiet Colonia neighborhood of La Gloria and provides a relaxing getaway perfect for a couple or small group of adults. The breathtaking ocean view will captivate you as you relax on the private balcony or sundeck. Just steps outside your door you can explore the ocean life, comb the beach for shells or relax in the tide pools. At night our rooftop transforms into a stargazers paradise.

Large windows provide a picturesque view of the Caribbean. Open the window and feel the cool breeze off the Caribbean. Enjoy your morning coffee while viewing the red and orange hues of the sunrise.

Within the neighborhood you will find friendly locals, restaurants and grocery stores, cafes, fresh seafood, succulent fruits and vegetables. North Beach and the Isla night life are just a short taxi or bus ride away. There you can enjoy live music, dancing, restaurants and shops. When your day is done, we invite you to settle in and let the surf lullaby you to sleep.

The two Apartments Suites upstairs each have a secure, private entrance, queen-size bed, sitting area, private bathroom, kitchenette and balcony.

About Esther

We fell in love with Isla many years ago and decided to go all in and build a wonderful winter home. We live on Isla during the winter and spend the rest of our time in Missouri. The beautiful Caribbean still takes our breath away.

Esther purchased this apartment in 2006

What makes this apartment unique

After our sunrise walk/run we enjoy coffee on the front balcony and watch the day come alive.

Peace and beauty!

  • 5 of 5

Ernie and I have had the great fortune to stay with Jerry and Esther three times. They are absolutely the most wonderful host, so very kind and helpful. They were there to greet us to their home and happily gave suggestions to restaurants and places of interest. Nothing compares to the most beautiful sunrises up on the roof or the stunning sunsets at the point. I love relaxing in the hammock with a good book and hearing the soft strains of Jerry playing the guitar down peaceful and calm and beautiful scenery to make it a perfect escape!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your paradise with us and for being such wonderful hosts!

My Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th time staying at Casa Del Sol Naciente. What a wonderful place. Jerry and Esther are amazing. You can't ask for better hosts. Greeting you when you arrive, answering all our questions about the island from food, restaurants, site seeing - everything! It is definitely my happy place! I LOVE LOVE LOVE staying here. From sunrise in the morning to the sunset in the evening - a perfect day every day! Thank you Jerry and Esther for making such special memories.

What a Gem!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week at this quiet, gem of a place. We loved that we could go downtown and enjoy the beaches, restaurants, and shopping, then come "home" to a quiet evening of listening to the waves breaking on the beach. I basked in the serenity of sitting out front watching the ships cruise by on the horizon, and Andrew enjoyed snorkeling in the ocean just across the street. Thanks for the recommendation of the fresh orange juice stand and the little bakery within walking distance. The hammock in the room was great for napping. With the sliding door opened even just a few inches there was a refreshing breeze through the room that reminded me I was in the tropical Caribbean. Before our trip we were a bit concerned that there would be no air conditioning or TV, but realized while we were there those items would have distracted from connecting with the island and unwinding from our life back home. The room was clean and the kitchenette was quite useable. We felt very secure knowing that only guests and the owners would be on the property and frequently Esther and Jerry were on the front porch to welcome us when we returned from our day of adventures. Oh, and the name is spot on! The sunrises over the Caribbean from the front porch are amazing. We will be booking again next winter so we can enjoy those beautiful sunrises again!!

Ultimate private cozy hideaway

  • 5 of 5

When we travel we usually stay in a hotel with lots of people and lots of noise all the times day/night, but, not here at the House of the Rising Sun. We rented a golf cart and were able to arrive at this gorgeous quiet home away from home with the instructions given to us by owners. It was was very nice what I would call a studio apartment with all of the kitchen equipment you would need and comfortable bed to lay your head after a relaxing shower from coming back from the beach. Oh!!! And what a treat to hear the crashing waves all night and that was all you heard too! Jerry and Esther gave us wonderful recommendations for restaurants and bakeries that we would have never found because they are off beaten path where the locals go. In my opinion those are the best places to get the best experience. Not once did we ever feel unsafe in fact, they have two gates plus your room that they provide keys for. This was the best decision on a place to stay we've ever made on traveling and are planing our next trip back to stay with them at The House of the Rising Sun.

We had a Blast!

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more grateful to Esther and Jerry. We had such a lovely time and they were the perfect hosts. We even got Jerry to serenade us! The views were wonderful and the location was perfect for exploring the island. The accommodations were just what we needed and it was very affordable. We plan to stay with them again when we return.

Thanks, you two, for making our trip that much more special and enjoyable!

Owner's Response: Beth and Denny ~ Thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure meeting the both of you. Sorry the weather was not better for you that week. But, you made the most of it and discovered the island with a great attitude. The impromptu jam session was an extra special treat. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
