As you cross the threshold you are welcomed by the serenity of a tropical oasis. Palm trees surround the oversized POOL crowned by a 10 person SOAKER TUB. Glass sliding doors unite the private exterior garden with the interior space. The natural, locally cut lime stone floors and louvered doors made of tropical Tzalam hardwood introduce you to an atmosphere of the Mexican Caribbean. The bedroom terrace winds around the upper floor overlooking the Marina. There are original paintings and artwork throughout the house. The third floor roof terrace offers spectacular views of the Bay of Cancun, the Caribbean Sea, and the magnificent tropical sun sets.

Forget about your car, walk, hop on a bicycle, drive a scooter or a golf cart. The island is only five miles long and still retains the flavor and charm of a Mexican fishing village. Surrounded by the finest white corral sand and the blue-green Caribbean sea one can enjoy world class deep sea fishing, excellent diving and snorkeling . The island is friendly, safe and scenic. Isla Mujeres offers many activities to fill your days. Along with exploring the famous North Beach, scuba diving the sleeping shark caves, snorkeling near Garafon reef, you can swim with dolphins, whales or sharks, visit the Turtle Farm and delight in these magnificent creatures! There are art galleries to visit, workshops to attend, massages to have, shops to browse through, tours to nearby wonders and beautiful beaches to enjoy. Isla has something for everyone! The restaurants on Isla Mujeres are excellent. Discover Mexican, Caribbean, International and Yucatan cuisine.

Enjoy the intimate privacy of an architecturally stunning Mexican casa ideally situated next door to the island’s resort marina. This villa offers an artistic setting that delights the eyes and the soul with Zen inspired architectural detail and an interior decorated with interesting world art. Pamper yourself with resort spa treatments, pool side dining, tennis games and deep sea fishing all available to you at the resort marina steps from your front door upon acquiring a day pass.

About Lorenzo and Heidi Bouillet

Heidi from Austria and Laurence from Canada are immigrants of Mexico. They fell in love with the country and its people. When not living and working in Mexico City they are sailing the Caribbean aboard their sailing vessel 'Don Quijote'.

Lorenzo and Heidi Bouillet purchased this house in 2006

Why Lorenzo and Heidi Bouillet chose Isla Mujeres

We have enjoyed the charm of isla mujeres for years, especially how the islanders have preserved and protected their culture. The island beaches and turquoise sea are simply unmatched in the Caribbean.

What makes this house unique

Casa Neza's 40 foot by 12 foot private swimming pool, ´10 person soaker tub, 12 foot perimeter privacy walls, ecclectic architecture and the benifits of the 5 star marina next door all make it an exceptional vacation choice.

I checked lots of rentals in Isla, but kept coming back to Casa Neza.

Wow am I glad I did! The feel of your own oasis is evident from first entering the secure gate. Open up the large south facing patio windows and you basically have a swimming pool in your living room! The fully equipped kitchen allowed us preparation and dinning at our own leisurely pace. Close to very good authentic Mexican restaurants, a new grocery/supermarket, and only a short cart ride to the hustle and bustle of Playa Norte...the main beach. We did rent a golf cart, and may I recommend one with four forward facing seats, which we were able to park within Casa Neza's perimeter walls.

A surprise visit from Lorenzo and Heidi, the owners, was an unexpected treat.

This down to earth couple are often in the area or will have a local assist you in anything you need. They happened to bring a new mattress for our one bed!(not that it was really needed)

The pool was checked daily and the cleaning service with fresh towels every other day.

I just can't say enough about the place. If you are looking to be a bit off the beaten track in your own piece of paradise, then book Casa Neza, you won't be disappointed.

Couldn't Be Better!

  • 5 of 5

Mu husband and I recently stayed at Casa Neza for a week and it was the perfect rental for us!

The home was more than we needed with 2 bedrooms and 3 full baths but we decided to spoil ourselves and we're glad we did.

We enjoyed the indoor outdoor feel of all the rooms and we loved the total privacy it offered us.

We spent our mornings (and many evenings) on the roof top enjoying the views and as the sun got higher we relaxed by the pool.

As much as we enjoy the North beach and various beach clubs on the Island, we found ourselves wanting to get back to the privacy of the house!

It was fully equipped with everything we needed and the only thing we would have appreciated having is a couple of beach chairs to take to the North beach for an hour or 2 a day.

We did rent a golf cart for the week which I would highly recommend. It allowed us to run to the store, get out and about each day for a bit without having to worry about cabs and to go into town or the Colonias for dinner

I'm sure the home would be fabulous for a family as well or even 2 couples but we were quite happy to have it all to ourselves :)

We can't imagine a more perfect place for us and we look forward to going back!

Wonderful house, you won't be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with another couple and were blown away by how beautiful the house is in person. It is very spacious and has everything you need, I can't say enough good things about the place and Fernando as well. Everything in the description was present, the only problem we had during our week stay was that the jacuzzi was not hot at all - only a minor problem compared to everything else.

I would recommend renting a golf cart for your stay since it is away from downtown, but a short cab ride would work or about a 20 minute walk. It felt very safe with the high walls, even though the island has a safe feel anyways.

I would highly recommend this to anyone and can't wait to return!

Great Home - Wonderful Service - Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, his daughter and I rented Casa Neza for spring break (3/12/16 - 3/18/16). The home was perfect for the three of us. The rooms were spacious and just as pictured. There were more than enough bathrooms and they are very nice as well. The pool was very nice and private with lights so we could swim in the evenings as well. They have wi-fi and it was pretty fast. The home is centrally located on the island making it easy to get to Playa Norte or Garrafon Park. The neighborhood is lovely. There is a great restaurant GreenVerde across the street and a little corner store not even a block from the house. I walked to both alone and felt very safe. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return the next time we visit Isla Mujeres.

Margarita was there to great us when we arrived. She also helped us arrange transportation to and from the airport in addition to arranging golf cart rental.

There's really nothing bad to say about this place. It was our own private oasis. If I had to make a suggestion I would recommend updating the interior paint - it's just been scratched from all the guests luggage I'm sure.

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Caza Neza for 9 days. Great central location on the island. We stayed on North Beach our first trip, and this was much more relaxing. There is a Chedraui ( like a Walmart ) just a 10 minute walk from the house, very easy to stock up on food, beer, etc. We rented a golf cart and could go anywhere on the Island in no time. The pool was nice and very private. The only thing missing was wifi, but there was a great little restaurant, Green Verde, one block from the house. Super food and the best wifi connection I found on the Island, very fast. Will definitely stay at Casa Neza again. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children - ages 9 and 12) stayed for 6 nights at Casa Neza. We loved the layout of the house, the large courtyard, and the fact that the whole main floor could open up to the outdoor space. The pool is a great size and my kids loved playing in the outdoor soaker tub. We loved how the garden and pool could be lit up at night to accommodate an evening swim. The high walls around the property made for a very private and secure accommodation, but in the early evenings we loved going up to the rooftop deck to look at the ocean, the surrounding neighbourhood, and watch the gorgeous sunsets. The pros inside the house were the spaciousness, ample storage in bedrooms to put away and hang clothes, and well stocked kitchen. All in all a fantastic stay!

Comfy

  • 2 of 5

We recently spent 7 nights at Casa Neza with another couple. The house is comfortable, and the pool is fabulous. The bedrooms were spacious, but no longer have the louvered doors on them, so we were not able to keep the patio doors open and enjoy the night breezes. However, with all the outside noise, i.e. dogs barking, etc., we didn't anyway. The pictures show a view of the ocean and marina from the rooftop patio, but we did not find that, and the patio furniture on the rooftop is so rickety is was scary to try and sit on. Plus, if you don't block the door open or take the keys with you, you'll be locked up there for a long time, as the door automatically locks when it shuts.

We were told that someone would stop by midweek to exchange bed linens and towels, we didn't get this service. We were provided with one kitchen towel, which we had to use all week, and one set of towels for each bathroom. We also did not have access to a broom or any kind of cleaning necessities. Thankfully, we had no spills or breaks that required the need of sweeping.

We were disappointed that we didn't have views of the water & ocean, as depicted in the photos. That is what we travel to Mexico for each year. We thoroughly enjoyed the island itself, and will return. We'll just be looking for another vacation rental.

Owner's Response: Dear Sandy, Thank you for your comments and observations. I have discussed the issue of the towels with our administrator and am very upset by this oversight. The change of towels is definitely something that should happen every 4 days and there is no excuse and I have reprimanded our administrator and staff. My wife and I built Casa Neza in 2006 and our many vacation clients have had overwhelmingly an excellent vacation experience. We are both long time sailors and picked our building site specifically to NOT be open to the windward side of the island therefore our home is more protected from the damage done by the salt air and the winds during the Islands northern fronts. The photo of Cancun Bay and the Marina boats were indeed taken from our roof terrace and correspond accordingly. Casa Neza does not have a “hot tub” and we have never advertised that there is one. The large 8 person soaker tub that we have complements the pool with a waterfall feature and has always been advertised for what it is, not heated. The terrace furniture is solid aluminium and brand new. Our front door to the property for security purposes does lock when it closes and therefore one needs the key to open it. Finally I am truly sorry that you did not contact us or our team via telephone or e mail with your concerns at the time. warmest regards Lorenzo
