About Ashley Wilkens

Todd & I fell in love with Isla Mujeres back in 2003 when we decided to take a spur-of-the-moment day trip to Isla from Cancun… as many people have done. It took us over an hour to get to Isla on a small fishing boat back then! Little did we know the impact that Isla would have on us! We fell in love with the pristine beaches, people, culture, food, and the feeling of comfort we had while visiting this quaint island.

We were married in Isla Mujeres on August 1, 2004, which is exactly 1 year from our casual day trip that would affect and change our lives forever. We had a beautiful sunset beach wedding ceremony at Villa Rolandi…what a perfect day! We have since visited the island several times a year and have made some wonderful friends there as well.. We knew we wanted to one day have our own piece of Isla to call “Our Island Home”. We hope you enjoy the island and our home as much as we do! Love the 'flip flop' lifestyle~

Ashley Wilkens purchased this house in 2014

Why Ashley Wilkens chose Quintana Roo

We were driving around the island on one of our recent trips & and noticed that Casa Mar Azul was available for purchase.. we really liked the location of our home, privacy and it's in the best location on the island..(but there isn't a 'bad' location in Isla Mujeres tho)..we toured the home and immediately fell in love with the spectacular views that can be seen from every room in the house.. and in my personal opinion..offers the most spectacular sunsets from the rooftop on the whole island..Our thoughts..'Here we go again.. buying 'another' slice of paradise...' Life is good and we are truly blessed to own this beautiful home and be able to share with others when we are not on the island..

What makes this house unique

You truly feel 'away from it all' and our home is the ultimate place to relax, renew and return home rejuvenated.

And always tell yourself to 'Always live like you are on vacation'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hola,



Ashley I just want to thank you for taking the time to answer all my questions and for giving us advice on our wedding plans. You were right about Juliette from Papillon Weddings; she did a phenomenal job in making our wedding day stress free.



We felt that we had the best of both worlds on Isla Mujeres staying at your properties. Casa Paraiso was dynamic rough seas with rock crops and amazing views in every direction on every floor. We also saw many cruise ships. Then moving to Casa Mar Azul for our wedding and honeymoon with a totally different view, calm waters overlooking the piers and beautiful lights of Cancun was sure a wonderful treat.



We arrived at Casa Mar Azul from Casa Paraiso at 12 noon December 8th and were married at 4:00 on the roof top of this magnificent home. It was more than we could have dreamed of. We were literally on top of the world.



We rented a golf cart for the duration of our trip and it was money well spent. We toured the island at our leisure, stopping at all the hotspots. It sure was nice to go back to our private Casas to have a siesta away from the hustle and bustle of the busy downtown core and relax with drinks around the pool.



It was an unforgettable experience and we are very grateful for your hospitality.



We made many friends and will be sure to return very soon.



Thanks for Everything,



Jon and Christine Mack

Effortless Enjoyment

  • 5 of 5

A short taxi ride from the ferry, Casa Mar Azul was everything the property photographs promised and more! The luxury of having 6 people share 3.5 bathrooms on vacation!! That's a full bathroom more than we have at home. :) Roomy spaces for everyone, lovely views, and plenty of privacy. Each room has an efficient air conditioner that beats the Mexican heat back easily. Towels, linens, a coffee maker, maid service, cooking supplies, and bottled water on tap contributed to our excellent comfort level! Modern furnishings and beautiful decor make you feel like you are in a luxury hotel. Having a private pool was the icing on the cake. After spending a day cruising the island on golf carts and/or hitting a beach or two, the pool was extremely inviting even in the afternoon sun. In fact, we were able to enjoy sunsets from the pool. Beautiful! The drive off the street has always been rough and bumpy, but the last two days of our stay, they smoothed it out! :) We were able to snorkel at Garrafon De Castillo which is just a few steps away from the door to the house. We really loved staying at Casa Mar Azul, and hope to stay here again soon! --- Martha and Jeff Harms, Fishers, Indiana

Beautiful Views!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property. We were greeted by Stacy the property manager with snacks and she was ready with any information we needed for our stay. The home was nicely done with many new updates including fabulous work on the all of the bathrooms!!! The pictures on the listing are great but it is better in person!! The home was as described and all of the amenities were accurate on the listing. The views from the patio and the rooftop are awesome at all times of the day and the sunsets are beautiful especially from up top!!

We are frequent visitors to Isla Mujeres and have stayed in many homes on the island. This home was lovely and was perfect for this stay with our 9 year old daughters and their friend. They enjoyed pool time after our excursions around the island several times a day.

Some of our favorite places to eat on the island for dinner are Olivia's in Centro, Limon in Isla 33, and Oscar's believe it or not the pizza is fabulous!!! Our favorites for breakfast are Mango Cafe and Consuelo M&J. There are many more choices and places we love just too many to list!!

Our favorite things to do are Punta Sur love the views when you pay to go to the end of the point, hunt for sea glass wherever we can find it along the cliffs and rocks of the Caribbean and go to North Beach and just enjoy the sun and beach!!

We highly recommend this property if you are looking for a beautiful place on the bay side!! You will not be disappointed!

Amazing stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Isla Mujeres and we are definitely going back! From the moment we booked our stay at Casa Mar Azul, Ashley, the owner was sending us helpful information so we could plan a dream vacation. She has put together a wonderful book of everything, including recommended excursions, restaurants, and even doctors on the island. We were greeted by her lovely manager Stacey, and there was chips, pico de gallo, and guacamole waiting for us when we arrived. I'm so glad we chose Casa Mar Azul as our vacation home! We shared with another family and we had plenty of room with the 3 bedrooms, pull out couch and 3 1/2 huge bathrooms. All the rooms and bathrooms were big! And the closets were big! Plenty of room to spread out. Everything was new and modern and even the smallest of details were taken care of like coffee maker, beautiful dishes, water cooler, blow dryer, lots of bath towels and beach towels, etc. etc. It was so nice to have so many outdoor areas to choose from as well. The sunset was beautiful from the rooftop jacuzzi and we spent a lot of time enjoying the beautiful pool on the other rooftop. The location of Casa Mar Azul is perfect too! We are definitely going back! We enjoyed swimming with whale sharks, manta rays, snorkeling, zip lining, visiting the Mayan ruins in Chichen Itza, and of course playing at the beach. Check out Ashley's book for recommendations once you book your stay. You'll love it!!!

Beautiful house.

  • 4 of 5

Property was great, only issue we had was the WiFi didn't work. House manager Stacy was very helpful, and Monica was very good. We had 3 couples staying, and it was perfect for that.

Owner's Response: Thank you Chris.. We are so glad you enjoyed the house and it was wonderful having you as a guest.  The internet outage was unfortunate.  Internet was out island wide for nearly 2 days.  I wish there was some way we could have corrected the situation but unfortunately there was not.

Beautiful Home Perfect for Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful. Perfectly situated on the island for us to enjoy any activities. The house was beautiful, comfortable, and well-maintained. Immediately put us in vacation mode upon arrival! Enjoyed looking at the stars from the rooftop at night, lounging in the pool during the day. Amazing views from this house! Great location, within walking distance to Garrafon Park for snorkeling. Neat little Reggae Bar also within walking distance. So many nice things to say about this place -- We will be back!

A comfortable, beautiful home with gorgeous view, in a quiet, tucked-away spot near the beach

  • 5 of 5

When our son and his fiancee announced their plans for an April wedding in Isla Mujeres, the first thing I did was go to VRBO and look for a rental home that could accommodate me, my husband and several extended family members who were also making the trip to Mexico. I feel so very blessed to have found Casa Mar Azul and know now that I was right to follow my instincts and book it eight months in advance. Ashley's spotless and tastefully-decorated home is lovely and light-filled, and was more than roomy enough for our group of six adults. It was exactly as pictured on the VRBO website, with one exception: the rooftop jacuzzi was not filled with water, though that wasn't a concern, since we all preferred spending time in the pool in the warm evening weather. Coincidentally, the house also turned out to be within easy walking distance of the kids' wedding location at Casa de los Suenos and a few other favorite hangs (including casual food, drinks and music at The Joint and snorkeling and sunning at the nearby Garrafon Castillo beach club). As a result, we only rented a golf cart for three days of our five-day stay. Cabs are inexpensive for a quick trip to the grocery store, shopping or any dining spot, and Gilberto -- the homeowner's recommended driver -- was extremely friendly and always reliable. Ashley and her team (house manager Ron and housekeeper Maria) couldn't have been more attentive and welcoming. Their suggestions for the best restaurants and local places of interest were right on the money, though I would add that you must try the charming Green Verde (which we visited twice) for lunch. We had such a wonderful stay that we've all vowed to come back -- next time with a couple of grandkids!
