About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5+ Baths (Sleeps 6)

Casa Isla is the ultimate luxury retreat. The house is on the tip of Isla Mujeres on a cliff overlooking the turquoise waters of the Bay of Cancun. Unobstructed ocean views from every room are breathtaking.

The house is a masterpiece of shape, color, light and air. The main space is an open living room, dining room and kitchen which opens onto an outdoor dining room, living room and pool with terrace, hot tub, and palapita, all overlooking the ocean. Eighteen feet of glass panels in the living room retract into the wall so the house becomes completely open to the breezes and waves. Accommodations for six include three deluxe suites, each with air conditioning and en suite bathroom with walk in stone shower. All bedrooms and bathrooms have ocean views and are completely private. The infinity pool has a shallow shelf for lounge chairs and a hot tub for 10 people. A thatched palapita at the pool is great for enjoying cocktails at ocean's edge.

Casa Isla is a luxury oceanfront three bedroom, three and a half bath home beautifully furnished with a high level of quality and finishes. The master suite has an indoor tropical garden and a terrace which overlooks the pool, the cliff and the bay. There are two bedrooms on the second floor, each of which has its own bathroom, two queen beds and fabulous views. The house was completed in December, 2008

The climate is perfect for outdoor living and the house has over 1,500 square feet of outdoor living space which overlooks the ocean, including living room, dining room, pool terrace with palapa, and outdoor roof deck with 270 degrees ocean views. Relax and let the sound of the ocean and the Caribbean breezes soothe your soul.

Restaurants and a beach with swimming and snorkeling are a five minute walk.

Please Note: there are three Casa Isla kitties who live outside. All are healthy, sterilized, vaccinated, and treated for fleas. We would greatly appreciate it if you would put food and water out for them while you are at the house. Food is provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Isla is an absolute paradise, a million miles away from any cares and concerns of everyday life. Sitting in the indoor or outdoor living room or the outdoor dining room (or just taking a shower!), it is almost impossible to take one's eyes off the incredibly blue water. How can the color of the infinity pool match so perfectly? Short walks to the nearby eating places made everything especially easy. This is a marvelous and luxurious destination for relaxing and re-energizing.

Casa Isla is outfitted with everything you will need for your island getaway. The roof deck lounge is wonderful for watching sunrises or stargazing at night. If you don't want to cook, a chef can be arranged or stroll down to the end of the street and let the restaurant there make you huevos rancheros. Several hours of light housekeeping per day is included. The house has wireless DSL internet and a vonage line, so call home as often as you like. Our satellite TV gets hundreds of channels, so watch your favorite HGTV show or the game. Our property manager can help arrange excursions, massage, transportation, bike/scooter/golf cart, and boat rentals.

Spectacular Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Isla for a week. The home is gorgeous- new and clean. Breathtaking views from every room. The sliding glass doors lead to an incredible pool and jacuzzi making for great indoor/ outdoor living. 3 huge bedrooms, great living space. It was very relaxing. Cleaned daily. We had food made, yoga, and facials all in the house. Great week!!!

Best villa on the island!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with friends in January and it was pure magic!!! Location is key with this place - so peaceful and the view is spectacular - we fell in love with this house - the design, decor, but above all, the outdoor living space is absolutely divine! We never wanted to leave...

Also fell in love with Lorenzo and Capitan, the local cats - really made it feel like home. Will be back again without a doubt!

Love Casa Isla.. pure paradise

  • 5 of 5

Love Casa Isla so much! Our family that went 2 kids 8, 11; my husband and I along with my parents. This was our first time to stay on Isla Mujeres and it could not be more perfect. Stacy was awesome and always available prior to our trip and while we were there to answer any questions we had. The house cats were great and we enjoyed feeding them and coming home to them every day. The view is spectacular we could sit on the patio and just look out all day. We enjoy more quiet area which Punta Sur was perfect for. We rented a golf cart for the week and was perfect for getting around everywhere. Set up with the rooms was great, the bedding was awesome most comfortable nights sleeps we have ever had on a vacation. We cannot wait to go again!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Isla is/was AMAZING! I am so impressed that I am having a hard time coming up with words to accurately describe our experience! The house is so comfortable, so well laid out! The views are breathtaking, the furniture and amenities are just what the doctor ordered! I HIGHLY recommend this Isla Mujeres property!

Casa Isla is a Five Star experience!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Isla in mid-June and the house could not have been more perfect. It is at the very south tip of the island, which is known as the most desirable spot on Isla Mujeres. The views are incredible (from EVERY room – even bathrooms!) and the rooms are huge with high ceilings. Even with six people in the house, the bedrooms were very private because of the size and layout. We spent tons of time relaxing by the pool. Even though there are beaches nearby, we found ourselves never wanting to leave! There are restaurants within walking distance and Maria, the housekeeper, made dinner for us one night when we didn’t feel like going out, which was delicious. Casa Isla is a Five Star experience! We are already planning our next vacation there!

A family 10 day high school graduation holiday

  • 4 of 5

The property is stunning and in the perfect location out of town, which means either taxis or as we had golf carts (not cheap).

The house has a house keeper Maria, who made breakfast each day we were there.

Great pool with seclusion. No TV for the whole holiday as.poor signal but DVD there if needed. We hit a tropical storm which took out 4 days, which was a shame. Lots to do for all ages, with great outdoor areas. Clean linen, towels all provided and changed daily.

We loved the cats and feeding them, but kept them outside as they had fleas.

Good memories.

Isla Mujeres is a Caribbean gem easily available from Cancun by ferry, but once you are there, it feels miles away. The island is known for its friendly people, welcoming atmosphere, relaxing vibe and world class beaches, fishing, diving and snorkeling. Punta Sur, where the house is located, is known for its serenity, tranquility and unparalleled views. Although the location is tranquil, there are several restaurants and local shops within walking distance. Beaches with snorkeling and sea kayaking are a five minute walk, but the view over the infinity pool to the ocean is so wonderful you may never want to leave the house!

Other Activities: Snorkeling with giant whale sharks, boating, fishing, scuba, shopping, swim with dolphins, sea kayaking, turtle farm.
