About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Our condo is in the West Tower of the Ixchel Beach Hotel. Our email address is Please add us to your contact list for future reference. The property is a full service hotel with each condo individually owned and decorated. This unit is on the 4th floor (one back from ocean front)overlooking the pool, the beach lined with palm trees, and the turquoise ocean. The beach is reef protected and has a shallow shoreline that stretches the entire length of Playa Norte (North Beach). It's a wonderful beach for kids to play on. They can walk quite a distance out with water only coming to their knees!!

Rent this condo and sit on your private balcony overlooking the ocean while drinking your morning coffee. During the hottest part of the day, rest on the shaded balcony on your own chaise. In the evening, sip on a Margarita made in your kitchen and served in your Margarita glasses. Everything you need is in your kitchen or a short walk from the hotel.

The fully equipped kitchen has granite counter tops, a built-in stainless steel microwave, a smooth counter top stove, a full size refrigerator, coffee-maker, bottled water dispenser, toaster and assorted utensils, pots, pans, and plastic storage containers for leftovers.

Isla is a 15-minute ferry ride from Cancun. The people on Isla are wonderful--Mexicans, Mayans, Europeans, Canadians, Americans (North and South)... There are a variety of restaurants--local, French, Mediterranean, Italian... Eat lobster at beach side restaurants with your feet in the sand. Jax, a sports bar with their famous fish and chips, burgers, and some say the best guacamole on the island; and the Sunset Grill, with lobster quesadillas, are just a short walk from the hotel. Both offer spectacular views of the sunsets. And, don't miss 'Baseball Tacos,' truly a local treat. Just ask the concierge for directions. We have so many must visit restaurants that we can't get to all of them in a week's time! If you are a 'foodie', you will love Isla.

Isla is a wonderful and safe place to visit and explore. Get out and meet the people. Rent a golf cart and go exploring from North Beach to the Sculpture Park on the southern tip, just four miles away.

Condo includes kitchen, dining room, and a living room with comfortable leather sofa, and two bedrooms with king beds.

The master bedroom has a king size bed with beautiful fully tiled bathroom with large counter area. There is a large closet which includes a safe. There are two wicker night stands with drawers for storage of your clothing, as well as new built in drawers. There is a balcony running the length of the master bedroom and living room. Open the glass doors that make up the entire wall of the master bedroom and living room and feel the ocean breeze throughout the suite.

The second bedroom has a king size bed with an ocean view from the window. It also has a large closet with safe. This bedroom includes a fully tiled bathroom with separate vanity area. Other room amenities include a bar height table with two chairs, microwave, coffee maker, mini-fridge, and a TV/DVD and iPod docking station. There is also built in cabinetry for your clothing.

All rooms are individually climate controlled with central air and heat. The bathrooms are tiled with a walk-in shower with glass doors and a seating ledge. There are hair-dryers in both bathrooms and Aqua bath supplies. Beach towels are provided. Renters have use of the pool, exercise room and laundry facilities. Chairs and umbrellas are set up and ready for you on the beach each morning. Just take your beach towel with you to the beach and claim your favorite location.

The pool also has lounge chairs and umbrellas, as well as a tanning ledge where you can place your lounge in about eight inches of cool water. There is a poolside restaurant available for breakfast and lunch with poolside and beach service. They also will provide room service.

Why Kim Wood chose Isla Mujeres

We fell in love with Isla on our first trip there in 2005. On our return trip the following year, we knew we would want to visit here often and, if possible, own a piece of paradise! The Ixchel Beach Hotel II condos were being constructed at that time. It's the most peaceful place we've ever visited with amazing restaurant and food options!! As soon as we return back to the USA, we begin planning our next trip.

What makes this condo unique

We love having Kalak restaurant on the premises. They serve delicious food. Nearby, we recommend Rooster, Bartilto Momma Rosa, Rolandi's and Qubano. There are many other wonderful restaurants within walking distance. After your second visit to the island, the restaurant owners will begin to recognize you and welcome you back.

We also love spending time on the sun ledge in the pool while the Kalak staff brings you drinks/snacks or lunch. Same for the beach. It is a beautiful white sand beach that you step onto as you leave the concrete patio of the pool

First stay on Isla Mujeres

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Isla Mujeres during spring break March 2016. We rented this condo from Kim and David with another couple and could not have been happier with the accommodations! The condo is beautiful! The staff at condo/hotel is very friendly and helpful. We booked a last minute snorkel trip through Mauricio with the local fishing coop, highly recommend! The food is good and the beer is cold! We did however rent a golf cart one day to tour the island and bar hop, definitely recommend! If you have any questions Kim is very responsive too! We will definitely be back and will rent from them again!

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed the condo and had a good time during your trip to the wonderful Isla Mujeres! We also love Mauricio. If he doesn't know an answer immediately, he'll get it for you pronto. We would love it if you stayed with us again on your next trip. Kim & David Wood

Isla Mujeres Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Isla Mujeres at the end of October 2015 with another couple. We had stayed at this Ixchel previously but rented a room with 2 beds before. This time we opted to rent an entire condo. We were very pleased with our accommodations. The unit was clean, everything we needed was provided by the owner. The concierge, Mauricio, is very helpful. He makes himself available to you for any questions you may want answered. Both bedrooms were very comfortable. I would definitely stay in this unit again.

The only complaint I have regarding this vacation is the unethical practices of most of the jewelers in the area. They have no problem lying to the customer regarding the authenicity of the gemstones in their store. I bought a "tanzanite" ring, was even given a Certificate of Authenticity. When I returned home I took it to a jeweler to have it appraised and was told it was fake. So just to discourage folks from purchasing what looks like a gemstone. Because most probably it isn't. Next time we go, I will enjoy the beach, the restaurants and the views.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments about our condo. We agree, Mauricio is the best! I'm sorry you had a bad experience with the jewelry vendors. If you decide you want to buy jewelry on a future trip, I can give you directions to a very reputable and honest jeweler.

We've visited Isla Mujeres for several years now and have stayed at different units at the Ixchel Condo's/Hotel. For the first time this September we stayed at this beautiful unit, King Suite 2408.

From my first conversation with the owner Kim, everything went wonderfully. She was helpful and a true delight to talk to. All of my questions were answered and she was right on top of emailing me back whenever I needed contact with her.

This unit had all we needed to enjoy 10 beautiful days in our favorite paradise, including a dehumidifier which we have to say works like a champ!

The staff at the hotel was attentive and so friendly we felt like true guests.

The next best thing to Isla itself, the beautiful people and the gorgeous turquoise water, is Kim and David's balcony.

We've stayed at different units in this same Condo/Hotel facility which were all wonderful, but this units balcony allowed us the pleasure of relaxing in the shade after a long day at the beach. A great place to relax and catch a breath before heading out to town for shopping or dinner.

We so hope to be able to get it reserved next year around the same time to do it all over again!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo last week with another couple. It totally exceeded our expectations. We are accustomed to staying at all inclusive resorts but if you are staying on Isla Mujeres, that is a mistake! So much good food on that island. We weather was perfect each day and we loved that awesome beach! It was great having our chairs and umbrellas setup for us each day. I can't express how perfect everything was and how easy it is to get around the island. Eloy, our waiter on the beach was a lot of fun. We used the collapsible cooler every day on the beach too! I was so glad it was there! Hopefully we can come back next year.

Exceptional place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this condo for a week in December and WOW. It's gorgeous, the balcony is fantastic, the view is incredible and the condo is impeccable. We had everything we needed and then some. Amazing beach, seriously the best on the island. Wifi worked great when there. Very short, and I mean very short walk to bars and restaurants. We walked everywhere except one day the Concierge, Mauricio the amazing, arranged us a golf cart and we went exploring. All the waiters on the beach are fantastic but our favorite was Arturo aka R2D2. He's a kick. if you get a cart make sure you go to the east end for the sunrise. Really incredible. Absolutely loved everything about this trip, will go back!!!!!!!! Thanks Kim and David for being such great host/hostesses!

Another BEST stay that was not long enough

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Kim and David for another great stay in your condo. We were very comfortable and slept extremely well. The weather gods were with us as well. We had rain on the last night we were there. The rest of the time was sunny and just the right temp for a pleasant stay. Really liked the new furniture and changes in the bathroom. We did miss the recliners on the patio however and the internet WIFI doesn't work most of the time. We really did not need to be connected anyway. It's a vacation. You just cannot beat the employees there. They are johnny on the spot if you need them for anything. Love them all. Our favorite place to eat this time was Limon'. You need reservations and if you want Lobster Sergio, you need to tell them when you make your reservation. A week is just not long enough. Until next time........

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are so happy you enjoyed your return visit. We understand the new wifi installation is a work in progress. We have been informed that owners can increase band width, for an additional monthly charge to us, in individual units if the owner is not satisfied with the service after the installation is complete. We absolutely will increase it in our unit for our guests if we are not completely satisfied with the wifi service on our next visit in January, 2015.
