El Gran Escape: As you look across the infinity pool out to the far reaching horizon framing your view of the Caribbean Sea you grasp a true sense of the infinite and your place in it. Our pool boasts a shallow sunning area and swim up bar with seating for six. Your hardest decision will be whether to get in the jacuzzi or possibly retreat for a siesta in one of the four bedrooms, three of which have a full view of the sea and surf. After all you may want to rest up for the BBQ you are planning in the outdoor kitchen. Or, since you have been spending enough time in relaxation and contemplation, you may want to take a taxi or golf cart the few kilometers to town for a bit of night life. The traditional Mayan town is just far enough away to afford both privacy and excitement depending on your mood. If you wish to stay in this tranquil Casa for the evening we can assist with catering, provisioning and daily maid service for an additional fee. More photos at www.elgranescapeisla.com
Nine of us stayed a week and loved it. Beautiful and well appointed and comfortable, as others have mentioned. The infinity pool with the view of the ocean, was the highlight. It was easy to spend most of each day floating and relaxing and enjoying. Thank you!
Great house for friends or family but the best part is the view. The house is just as nice as advertised and we will be back! Thank you Julie.
We rented this house in Feb 2016. There were 8 people and it was the perfect size. The was plenty of privacy for everyone but plenty of large common area to hang out with a big group. I love that each bedroom has its own bathroom. It was very well equipped and supplied. They even supply bottled water (giant delivery style bottles). The kitchen is very well supplied as well. Plenty of pots, pans, glasses and dishes for large group. The grounds were beautiful and the pool was clean and well maintained. I would give it 5 stars except for a few maintenance issues. The biggest one being that the Jacuzzi did not get hot. We were told that in order to use it, all A/C in the house must be turned off and then you could heat it. We did this but it never got hot. Other things were pretty minor (knob on sink in master bath kept falling off, window in master bath would not completely close and kept banging when it was windy). Overall a great house. I would definitely rent it again...
I would love to keep this home a secret so I can save it for myself, but it was just too amazing to not share my experience.
This was by far one of my favourite vacations - the house was absolutely perfect and the property management staff were remarkable. If we ran into any issues they would be there right away to offer assistance. Thank you Miguel and Sue!
If you are looking for a private house that can fit a large family, you found it! Thank you Julie for being so caring and accommodating - your home is so beautiful.
The description of the house was spot on! The view was breath taking, the pool was delightful and the outside accommodations were perfect. The layout of the house was great as there were several families involved in the stay. The property was clean and well maintained the entire time we were there. Prior to our arrival Julie sent us tips to make our vacation and arrangements for travel. Her insight into the island made our trip so much more enjoyable. I would recommend this property to my family and friends and done so already. We are hoping to rent this property again next year. We had planned on doing a lot more on the island but really enjoyed the house, so we didn't get everything done that we wanted to so we ARE going back. We did visit the turtle farm,did some snorkeling, shopped on Hidalgo street, went to North Beach and ate at some really good restaurants, like Mango Cafe and La Lomita! Can't wait to go back and look forward to staying at El Grande Escape!!. Kathy in KC
We love this island! We come to isla Mujeres at leadt once a year. So weve stayed in many homes, This house is amazing! The outdoor space is perfect, patio furniture so comfortable (worth mentioning) tyipacally we head to the beach daily., but on this stay we spent 2 full days enjoying the pool true R&R. The house is well equipt with all you need, great bbq grill,. Hats off to the hosts, the toaster was broke, we called & they immediately purchased a new one. we give this property 5 stars! The only downside is there is no covered area out back, lottsa shade but no protection from the rain, we had 1 full rainday so we were kind of trapped indoors. You may want to check with the owners regarding their safes, the code we were given did not work, but they did have 1 safe that was "Key" locked, since there were only two of us we simply shared that safe. Otherwise, youll love it here! Just a btw to the owners, you may want to check the dryer, it took 3 cycles to dry our cloths, im not complaing, just saying because im sure electric is expensive. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
