If waking up to private and unobstructed views of sunrises, sunsets and the entire island than our Penthouse unit #701 is definitely the property to consider for your next getaway. Our 1650 square foot unit is located in the newest Ixchel Condo phase-II which is positioned right on Playa Norte beach, truly the most spectacular white sand beach in the entire Mayan Riviera. As you exit the elevator into the lobby from your private Penthouse condo it is only a few steps past our refreshing pool (with large in pool tanning ledge) and you step out onto the soft sand beach which offers warm turquoise waters ready for all water activities or maybe just leisurely float with friends and your favorite cool beverage. Ixchel-II offers complimentary beach towel, beach loungers, umbrellas and beverage/food service right to the waters edge. Bring your own refreshments or just allow yourself to be spoiled and pampered by the friendly staff.

After a full day of sun and sand just return to your Penthouse retreat to relax and refresh with a cool shower. The 660 square foot L-shaped terrace provides you with a shaded covered area, all day tanning area and unlimited choices of island views from the tallest vista on the island. This unit also offers you the choice of preparing meals or snacks from your well equipped kitchen or just call for room service.

In the evening after toasting your personal sunset its just a short 1/2 block walk to Hidalgo Street, take a leisurely stroll up the quaint cobblestone main street of Isla and investigate the smorgasbord of ethnic restaurants, retail shops (featuring the local artisans)live entertainment and exceptional local restaurants specializing in fresh seafood and traditional Mayan cuisine. Check in our guestbook or at the front lobby for dining suggestions and feel free to add any of your new discoveries.

With every booking (on request) we will send you info with arrival, transportation suggestions and a few tips to make your stay as stress free and memorable as possible. Thank you for visiting our site and hope any trip you decide to take to Mexico will make you want to return again.

About Brent

Day and I are Canadian and live here on Isla 6-7 months of the year. Our winter home is here on Isla Mujeres and summer home is in Summerland, British Columbia.

Brent purchased this condo in 2007

Why Brent chose Isla Mujeres

Fell in love with the island and the local people and Playa Norte beach is by far one of the best in the Yucatan.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We had a perfect time staying in #701. It is our new favorite place to stay. We usually stay in #709 but we like your home. It is much larger, the bathrooms are much bigger, and the beachview and the downtown view are the best. We visit each year ( maybe more in the future) and we will only stay here from now on.!

Beautiful condo and fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at #701 Ixchel over the 4th of July holiday weekend. The condo was absolutely terrific: clean, spacious, well kept, updated, and just as advertised and pictured on the website. The views were incredible (almost 360 degrees) and the outdoor space was a huge bonus for this unit. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Some of our favorite features of this rental:

Location: Beach is right outside your door. You can also walk to anywhere in Centro, great restaurants and shops.

Views: Gorgeous ocean and island views, and the best views of the sunsets over the water.

Amenities: Well equipped kitchen, with bottled water (even for the ice maker!), housekeeping daily. The pool looked clean and inviting (although we did not use it).

Staff: The staff were friendly, warm and super helpful. Especially Mauricio who took time to arrange a golf cart rental for us, and then mapped out a great itinerary for a drive around the island.

Beach: One of the best beaches we've been to, with soft white sand and a gentle slope. The water is super clear, and you can see to the bottom, even in 6+ feet of water.

Isla Mujeres itself is a wonderful place, where you can really feel like you are in Mexico (similar in feel to small towns like Akumel along the coast).

Finally, we would like to thank Brent for all his help. We had to make some changes to our reservation, and he was super patient, helpful and responsive! Gracias!

Brent and Day, many thanks for allowing us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful condo. Our visit was fantastic. Absolutely stunning views from all sides of the terrace. Sunsets and sunrises were a mandatory part of every day. The condo was great- very comfortable, nicely furnished, clean, and well maintained. The staff at Ixchel were friendly and accommodating, especially your concierge Mauricio who was outstanding. The location is incredibly convenient with all of Playa Norte at your fingertips, and downtown and multiple dining, shopping, and entertainment options just a quick stroll the other way.

All in all it was just a perfect getaway. We are already planning a return trip soon. Thanks again for everything!

Beautiful condo, beautiful view - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

As owners of a vacation home our selves, my wife and I are VERY picky about where we stay and who we rent from on VRBO. I will tell you that this condo is absolutely perfect and beautiful, and a GREAT place to relax and soak up the beauty that is Isla Mujeres. You are on the top floor, and have a lot of privacy. GREAT view from the patio where we spend a lot of time. The owners have furnished and decorated the condo very well. A great touch was the LED "rope" lighting out on the huge deck (which you can access either from the bedroom or the living room.) The lighting allowed us to safely spend lots of time on the deck at night, but subtle enough to not be over bright.

Everything was clean, comfortable, and in excellent shape. My wife and I have traveled all over the world and literally stayed in dozens of luxury VRBO rentals - this condo was absolutely "world class." I had a few questions, and Brent, the owner, was timely and friendly with his reply. 5 stars all the way - you can't go wrong.

Perfect Penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your beautiful and very comfortable penthousecondo at June 3-10. We absolutely LOVED it! From morning coffee on the porch, to the awesome restaurants a short walk away, beautiful beach and water, sunsets on the porch, and the very comfortable bed, we enjoyed it all! Your well furnished condo with the most awesome view was very much appreciated, and we hope to have the priviledge to stay there again. It was our first visit to Isla Mujeres and we will definitely be returning. Thank you!

R&R abounds at Ixchel

  • 5 of 5

First & foremost, thank you for the lovely stay at Ixchel. This was our 25th anniversary & we couldn't have asked for anywhere better on Isla Mujeres. The views are beyond compare. The spacious terrace begged us to visit it as often as possible. Both the sunrises & sunsets were observed every day of our stay. The interior of the condo is equally as inviting. You won't lack for a thing. Overall, it was just an extremely comfortable place to call home during our stay. We feel very blessed to have been able to visit & stay here.

Amazing condo, beach, and memories!

  • 5 of 5

THANK YOU BRENT AND DAY for sharing your beautiful condo! We were thrilled with unit #701 and the breathtaking views from the large terrace. Each day we were in awe of how spectacular the beach/ocean looked--so crystal clear blue! Every window has an amazing view, whether out to Playa Norte (voted one of the Top 10 Beaches in the world) or south toward town and the rest of the island. Isla Mujeres is only 1/2 mile wide and 5-miles long, and the condo sits right at the end of Hidalgo Ave. the main street on the north side of the island. It is a short walk from the ferry (we booked the Transportation package through Ixchel and were pleased with their service, no hassles, even bottled water waiting for us at the airport). The condo came equipped with all the necessities-- AC, a full kitchen (the stove isn't available for use, but you don't need it...the food choices are plentiful all within walking distance or a golf-cart ride away!), ice maker/refrigerated purified water plus a separate garrafon water stand at room temp, two bathrooms--one with a huge walk-in shower complete with bench, a king-sized bed that is oh-so-comfy, beach/water toys to use including floaties and snorkel gear, and the lanai- which really is more of a extended room including a patio table, BBQ, two Adirondack Chairs, an L-shaped couch, and two reclining loungers that we used daily! The breeze was perfect to cool us off while taking in the magnificent sunrises and sunsets, and to enjoy the bottle of wine provided- gracias! The staff at the Ixchel are friendly and helpful, especially Mauricio who speaks English fluently, and Christina at the front desk. Wifi is an issue/very spotty, but hey, you're on vacation in a stunning setting so nothing was THAT important for us. We would highly recommend going to Ruben's for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner! Super yummy, big portions, and very reasonably priced. What a dear, sweet gentleman! Also, don't miss Mango'll need to rent a Golf Cart to get there, as it's mid-island, but WELL-WORTH the trip, as is the beautiful Guadalupe Church across the street. We went around the rest of the island-enjoyed the east side with the walkway, rocky coastline and Caribbean views, the Mayan Ruins on the south side, and the Turtle Farm on the west, with views of Cancun. (FYI: the west side, called Sac Bajo stinks of raw sewage..ick..which pollutes the sad!) Overall, Unit #701 is BEAUTIFUL, on the BEST beach, with STUNNING views! A+++

Owner's Response: Thank you both for the review, guest comments are always appreciated. We are continuing at Ixchel to improve our existing WiFi to provide a service level travel guests require and expect. It is fun to hear when guests find the local spots that makes Isla Mujeres such a safe and special place. Saludos Brent y Day
