About the property

~ ISLAND JEWEL~ 2 bdrm, 2.5 bath on Caribbean, Sleeps up to 6 guests

Casa Paraíso...your ideal private island home...where Paraíso es para siempre 'Paradise is Forever'.

Our home, Casa Paraíso was featured & spotlighted on HGTV, Beachfront Bargain Hunt in August 2014..We were very flattered when we were approached by the network.

Isla Mujeres - the Island of Women. and just voted #7 Best Beach in The World by Trip Advisor in 2017.. what a huge honor! Sparkling, clear, warm azure waters. Beautiful, soft, white sand beaches. Gentle tropical breezes. Breathtaking views. Ancient Mayan ruins. Modern conveniences and only a 15 minute ferry ride from Cancun - but worlds apart. Once a sleepy fishing village, Isla Mujeres has been “discovered” by tourists, but still maintains much of its small-town charm and laid-back attitude.

Glistening Caribbean waters, Swaying palms & White sands. Why wait? Escape to paradise in beautiful Isla Mujeres - which means you won't have to worry about anything—other than remembering to put on your sunscreen. With breathtaking beach views at your fingertips, spend your days exploring all the island has to offer!

Whether you & your guests choose to swim or surf or just lounge all day by the pool – you can feel the stress just melt away. Our tropical paradise includes a private pool with a lounging/tanning area directly facing the Caribbean, spectacular 360 degree views of the entire island...with all the comforts of home. We do have a complimentary international phone line for you to use during your stay and high speed Wireless Internet that works great throughout our whole house. . Casa Paraiso is located directly on the beautiful Caribbean Ocean where there is always a refreshing ocean breeze blowing.. We recently completed a total renovation that was completed in November 2013..and added rooftop palapas, section couch & poolside palapa/table for your enjoyment.

There are ceiling fans located in every room of our home and 3 brand new split air conditioning units located throughout the home – and they work very fast at cooling the rooms too!

Main floor: Fully-equipped kitchen, laundry room, dining area, 2 spacious & open living areas and half bath. You will love the 2 living areas furnished with comfortable furniture and oversized sectional couch to relax or watch the large LED flat screen TV with Dish Satellite programming. (with lots of English satellite channels too).

Second floor: 2 large master suites--each beautifully decorated with spacious full bathrooms with large, oversized walk in showers, both suites have access to the large wrap-around balcony, custom built king size beds with luxurious bedding. The upstairs bathrooms have large beautifully decorated custom tile and cabinetry & large walk-in showers and illuminated onyx sinks.

Beautiful wooden stairway leads takes you from the 2nd level terrace/balcony to the rooftop terrace that has brand new palapa (thatched roof) with red LED up-lighting..what a beautiful effect at night, custom sectional couch, and table where you can breathe in the constant ocean breeze and panoramic views of the island and nearby Cancun with captivating sunsets.

All linens, towels, cooking and eating utensils are furnished. Downtown is only minutes away. All linens, towels, cooking and eating utensils are need for you to bring anything but your swimsuit, flip flops and get ready to transform yourself into 'Mañana Mode'..

Additional Amenities: We are more than happy to recommend private transfers to and from the airport with an English speaking driver. We can arrange to pre-stock your pantry and refrigerator prior to your arrival, in-house masseuse, Personal chef, Swim with whale sharks (July - September), book world-class sports fishing on boats complete with professional crews, etc...if you think of it.. we can make it happen! Just ask!

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 Mujeres would have on us! We fell in love with the pristine beaches, local isleños, wonderful community and family values, food, and the feeling of safety & 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, which is now Zoetry 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~ Keepin' it simple!

Ashley Wilkens purchased this house in 2013

Why Ashley Wilkens chose Quintana Roo

We would drive our golf cart around the island and always would comment on how we really loved this house and on one of our many trips to Isla Mujeres we saw that the house was listed "for sale"..THAT was our moment to have OUR very own island home. You can't beat what Isla has to offer: Island style home, World famous beaches, You can always take in the constant ocean breeze coming from the Caribbean while sitting in the beautiful pool. Our home is in a central location 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! Life Is Good and We are truly blessed.. Love the flip flop life!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had stayed Jan 14 for two weeks with another couple and would return to Isla in a heartbeat. Ashley, one of the owners, was very accommodating both with all of my pre visit questions and even with a follow up call while we were there. Great to have such a personal touch though miles away. Casa Paraiso is a very comfortable place with many of the creature comforts one would want. We did though feel that more could be done with the outside amenities such as lounge chairs and cushions and was happy to hear that that is on their list. Having been new owners of a rental property ourselves we get how all things take time and we are sure that this place will not only improve over time but will def be on our return list in the future. Isla itself is a special island. We -four women in our fifties- felt absolutely safe at all times no matter what time of day or place. We did not rent a cart but opted to secure four bicycles on our own which in itself we all would highly recommend as a way to get around the island. With so many great places to eat, knowing we can pedal it off made our indulgence much more accepting! The people,both local and those who travel to Isla regularly, are some of the nicest people we have come across. Most tourists we talked to gave been coming to Isla for years and their kids are now coming back with their kids. Safe you bet - hospitable and accommodating -absolutely. We can honestly say that Isla is our Mexico. Thank you Ashley and Todd for making our holiday a memorable one!

Amazing!! Best overall place we've stayed so far!!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Isla for many years now...and stay in a different place each we feel we have a pretty good idea on how one compares to another. So far...Casa Paraiso is hands down our favorite! Starting from the gorgeous view Caribbean view from the beds, roof tops and pool (although pretty chilly water in February) get used to it quickly, (if you take the initial plunge)... and it's a great place to relax, unwind and watch other vacationers enjoy the island! It's only the second place we've ever stayed with American Satellite TV...and 3 of them, at that. (Very important to my husband who likes his news in the morning...and something to watch before bed). So close to Centro, Maldecon & Playa Norte, you could go without a golf cart...(however, my husband has a phobia of not having wheels at his disposal at all that is never a concern for us) it's nice that Paraiso has its own private off the street parking area. It's far enough away that the Centro traffic and night life doesn't keep you awake at night. Ashley and Todd manage their own properties...very high on my list...since I'm our "travel agent"...and I know Ashley ALWAYS answers her emails quickly, and addresses any concerns immediately...also...they're just all around cool people. (Also...just not so impressed with places that aren't managed by the owners...with awesome local help, of course, like Stacy is for Paraiso!) The kitchen is equipped with anything you might need, and the bathroom has a blow dryer...yay, Ashley!...(although...some of us are getting older...a magnified light up mirror in the bathroom would be bueno!) my husband tells's Mexico...make up and bras should be banned anyway. All in all...if your on is Sweet...if your at Casa Paraiso you're luckier than most!!! (Reserve early...up to a joke...the good ones DO go that quickly!!!)

Perfect home to spend your time on Isla Mujeres!

  • 5 of 5

although our arrival on the island was delayed, the house manager was right there with the key to this beautiful home. Such a comfortable home...especially the beds. We slept like babies. Loved sitting out front and on the roof for that spectacular view of the Caribbean. Thanks to Ashley & Todd for sharing your home.

Overall very happy

  • 4 of 5

This is our third time renting a home on Isla and the 2nd time renting from Ashley. Both times Ashley was quick to respond when we had questions and was great to work with.

As far as the home itself, it was exactly how it was portrayed in the description. Plenty of room, clean, everything worked, etc. There was good Wi-Fi throughout the house and the satellite received plenty of channels. The pool was clean and a nice place to relax. Just be aware that because you’re on the east side you’re not going to get sun in the pool after 1pm in January. When we stayed at other properties there would be someone that came in every day to clean, this didn’t happen with this property but looking back I don’t think it was a big deal and the daily cleaning is probably over-kill.

Probably the only negative I see is with the location and that’s probably more of a personal preference. Now that we’ve stayed on both the west and east sides of the island, I prefer the west side strictly based on noise. If you love to hear the ocean you’ll probably feel the opposite and the wind/waves help drown out some of the road noise, which is present. I did like the location as far as not having a lot of other homes around and how close it is to the market and places to eat/drink.

Casa Paraiso is in the La Gloria neighborhood which has a great mix of residential areas and quaint small shops & delicious restaurants. La Gloria is midway on the island (north to south). Beautiful beaches and crystal clear water ---great for swimming and snorkeling. Despite being a small island, Isla Mujeres has fantastic restaurants, nightclubs and spas. Super friendly locals.

Other Activities: Shopping, Mayan ruins, Garrafon park, great shelling beach, Swim with the Whale Sharks (June-Aug), Deep Sea Fishing,

Golf: Cancun (a short ferry ride away) has wonderful courses.
