About Ashley Wilkens

Todd & I are blessed with 4 kids (I can't call them children anymore) Our love for Isla Mujeres back in 2003 when we decided to take a spur-of-the-moment day trip to Isla from Cancun… like the majority of people have do. It took us over an hour to get to Isla via a small fishing boat back then.. now it is only a quick 20 minute ferry ride on a fancy boat now.. but you feel like you are in a totally different world from the hustle & bustle of Cancun.. YIKES! Little did we know the impact that Isla Mujeres would have on us! I remember the feeling I had when I first stepped off the boat the very 1st trip to the island...it's so hard to "explain" to people what Isla is like.. but there is something very special and magical about Isla that has stolen my heart for over 15 years & still have that feeling every time that I arrive on the island. Our family fell in love with the calm, crystal clear warm Caribbean beaches, LOVE the simplicity of the island in general & daily island living (slip into "manana mode", the local isleños are so welcoming every time I see them, wonderful community & family values, enjoying traditional Mexican dishes & the freshest seafood you will ever put in your mouth, and it's so safe (it's like it's very own country... away from Mexico's bad reputation) The island has a huge Navy base on the island & I am down there all the time without my husband (he still has his job in the states) & I have NEVER EVER felt unsafe.. I actually feel safer in Isla than here in the states.

We were married in Isla Mujeres on August 1, 2004, which is exactly 1 year from our casual day trip that would affect & change our lives forever. We had a beautiful sunset beach wedding ceremony at Zoetry Villa Rolandi Hotel with a traditional mariachi band & lots of tequila. We come home to Isla many times each year & have made some truly wonderful friends as well.. We hope you enjoy the island and our home as much as we do! KEEP IT SIMPLE ~ Life is way to short not to ~

Ashley Wilkens purchased this house in 2014

Why Ashley Wilkens chose Isla Mujeres

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

Gorgeous views, quality home, perfect for family/couples getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fantastic! I will get right down to the important stuff you might want to help you decide on this home.

Views/Amazing Home/Top Notch Cleanliness/ A+ Location/Quiet side of island

Hospitality and Responsiveness of owner and staff/Stellar!!!

A housekeeper (Monica) comes daily to make beds and do desired laundry (INCLUDED IN PRICE, tips appreciated)...a FIRST for me in a rental home on VRBO.

It's important to know this home has a fair amount of steps (3 levels). NOT a problem, just something to consider. There is a master suite just off the main level that has only about 4 steps into the bedroom so this is an option for elderly travelers with knee problems. (I ONLY point this out because my dad was recovering from knee surgery) Photos convey.

There is a beach just below which has snorkeling, snacks, beverage service, bathrooms and lounge chairs with umbrellas. It doesn't get overpopulated and it's just about $4/day for access.

The house manager, Stacy, went above and beyond to make sure we had everything for our arrival and was easily accessible throughout the week.

Ashley (homeowner) answered all questions promptly and was super helpful with all requests.

This is a great home for families, as well as couples who want to get away from it all and enjoy the charm and beauty of this amazing island. And get out and eat the food, not a bad meal all week!! Can't say enough about the hospitality of all!

Owner's Response: Where can I begin to say Thank you so much for all the kind words on our home ~ that means so much to me. We are so happy to hear that you and your family had such a perfect vacation and that you loved staying in our home as well. We always strive to make your vacation as laid back and stress free as possible. Isla is such an amazing little island that captures your hearts from the initial moment you step off the ferry... It is a such a pleasure for me to share our home with families such as yours and I really enjoyed that you were able to discover and enjoy Isla Mujeres for your perfect beach getaway ~ we look forward to sharing our home with you again next year! Thank you so much again, Aimee.

Incredible! Book the house you won’t regret it!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say I was hesitant to book Ashley’s place as it was my first time using HomeAway and my first time visiting Isla Mujeres. But everything about our stay (family of 10) was amazing! From the delicious welcoming platter to having Gilberto, the taxi driver basically on standby to a wonderful private dinner at the house with Javier and Marla—all approved recommendations of Ashley. The staff is extremely attentive. The house is beautifully decorated and spacious. The view is spectacular. Ashley is responsive and flexible. I have absolutely no complaints. Everything was perfect. Stop waiting and book!!

We loved the Casa Mar Azul on Isla Mujeres!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10 enjoyed the pre-Thanksgiving stay at Casa Mar Azul. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and accommodated our families.

The pull-out sleeper sofa was a bit short for our 6 ft. grandson, though. We rented golf carts to get around the island and ate at local eateries throughout the island to experience the true Mexican culture. The hot tub at the top floor did not work to our liking, so we did not frequent the look-out bar. Besides, we did not feel that it was too safe for our small granddaughters (3-4) who like to climb and twirl on railings. If families have small children or older parents, the stairs may be problematic, too. Monica did a great job of daily housekeeping . . .just hoped that the front pool deck area would have been cleaned daily, too.

Overall, we were happy with our stay!

The house was very nice!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very nice, spacious, well maintained and the view across to Cancun was great. The support staff was very responsive and helpful. Monica cleaned the house every day and was super. The upstairs AC had an issue and the technician was there within 30 minutes and fixed the problem. We have been to Isla many times but this was a first stay on the south end of the island. If you are looking to stay on the south end of Isla, we can fully recommend this home. The owner was also very nice to work with and quite helpful.

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The views are absolutely beautiful. The home fit our family of 7 perfectly. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. The outdoor areas were wonderful. It was peaceful and just a short golf cart trip into town. I recommend this property.

Beautiful house and view!!!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous home with a beautiful view! Everything you can think of is covered. Housekeeping was very efficient and friendly. Was so nice to have everything cleaned every day! The view is amazing and the rooms with their own bathrooms are nice and spacious! The house manager Stacy was ready and available if we needed her. The owner Ashley also thinks of everything for you. Any little detail of your stay that you may have a question about she answers. The pool and the view from the pool is also beautiful. Will definitely return!!!
