About the property

5 Bedrooms, 6 baths sleeps max 10

Watch the sunrise and the sunset from the tip of Isla Mujeres in this beautiful new home with all the amenities. Casa Vista Alegre del Sur is located just a few hundred yards from the Mayan Ruins located on the south point of the island.

Vista Alegre del Sur, completed in 2010, means 'Happy View'. You can easily see why. The house is located at the south tip of the little island of Isla Mujeres Mexico and has 360 degree views allowing for both sunrise and sunset views. You can spend a whole day just watching the white clouds roll across the turquoise waters while looking at the Cancun hotel district off in the distance. Enjoy the red orange sunset and then the view turns into a sparkling diamond bracelet of lights.

Relax: The house is detailed with the finest quality materials. The floors and showers throughout the house are travertine. The counter tops are striped travertine and the wood doors, cabinets and railings are mahogany. The pool decking is conchuela, a stone made from conch shells that is always cool to the feet.

The pool, approx 20' x 40', gives a vanishing edge view of the beautiful water that you literally can't take your eyes off of. You may never want to leave the house. A short walk to the very tip of the south point will take you to the Mayan Ruins, Templo Ixchel, where you can walk through the sculpture gardens and visit the lighthouse before having lunch or dinner at the at the restaurant on the point. You can also walk to Garrafon Park where you can spend the day hanging at the beach, the pools, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, or riding the zip line.

Surrounding area: Travel by little red taxi, golf cart, or moped to the North Beach to check out the white sandy beaches and beach restaurants. The North Village 'Centro' is exciting day or night. Its a great place to eat, shop, hang, people watch, and meet people. Hidalgo Street is the place for night life and trea restaurants.

You can take a ferry over to the hotel district of Cancun for more fancy dining and world class shopping. Come down anytime late spring or summer and experience a thrill of a lifetime swimming with the 30 to 40 foot whale sharks. Isla Mujeres is a world class fishing and diving destination.

In June through August don't miss the once in a lifetime experience to swim with the 30 to 40 foot whale sharks. Isla Mujeres is one of the few places where they migrate close enough to see. If you are a diver or a fisherman you have probably already heard of Isla Mujeres.

Our Casa: I myself am a golfer and love bringing my clubs down and playing the many golf courses around Cancun and Playa del Carmen with course designs by world famous players and architects .

This beautiful Casa awaits your visit, whether a romantic get away or family or friend vacation. The house is comfortable for 2 to 10 people.

Our group of 9 stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it. We would definitely stay again. The property is amazing and designed to take advantage of the spectacular view. In fact, we would have been content to never leave the pool area! The VRBO property pictures and description provide an accurate picture of the home. The property is located on the much quieter south end of the island which was a bonus for us and allowed plenty of relaxation . Although taxis are easily obtained, we rented a golf cart for the week which made trips to other parts of the island convenient (the view while driving on east main road is amazing). I would definitely recommend the few minute walk to Punta Sur, in addition to the view, there is a vendor in the parking lot that sells delicious crepes for 35 pesos several days during the week. David, the property owner, was very responsive to questions and issues. Marla (concierge) and Tere (housekeeping) were wonderful and made sure we had a comfortable stay. I would highly recommend Casa Vista Alegre Del Sur. Of note, there is also a property on the island named Casa Vista Alegre which caused some confusion for taxi drivers and golf cart delivery. We found it helpful to share that the property is not by the skate park but by the light house at Punta Sur.

Great Stay

Rented this house to celebrate a birthday in September. The rooms were comfortable, air conditioned and the sunsets were a real highlight. Marla and Javi were also incredibly helpful and accommodating.

A bit of paradise

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a family vacation. Three generations enjoyed a week of bliss at this beautiful home. We all had our own space. I was queen of the palapa bedroom upstairs with its own terrace and windows east and west so right from the room I was able to see the sun rise and set over the Caribe. The house is easy to live in and everyone had the ability to get away when needed. The kitchen is well equipped. The pool was taken care of each day and cleaning service provided. We rented two golf carts for our group but because the house is at Punta Sur cans are easily accessible. I have come to Isla for twenty years and always been in a small hotel in Centro. With the family this was prefect. We were well supported by our hosts on the island so any questions were quickly answered. Isla is a dream come true and this house is a little bit of paradise.

Truly Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an exceptional time in this beautiful home. The description and pictures here are more than accurate, but you really need to see it for yourself. The water view from the patio and pool kept us mesmerized for hours on end.

I sent a grocery list to the property manager, a week before our trip, and the kitchen was stocked to perfection upon our arrival. I highly recommend taking advantage of this service that they offer.

As you can tell from the map, the house is on the less crowded end of the island, so you really need a golf cart for the duration of your stay. We booked our own, but the property manager offered to arrange one for us if we needed her to. We grabbed our cart, as soon as we got off of the ferry, and made the beautiful drive to the house, which was easy to locate.

This was only our second trip to Isla, but after driving around quite a bit, I'd say this is one of the nicest homes on the island. It's not only peaceful and relaxing, it's also well stocked with everything you'll need during your time there.

Thank you to David, Marla and the rest of the crew for helping to make this one of our best vacations to date.
