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

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!

Fabulous Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mar Azul was a great villa for our group of families! This villa was modern, clean and Maria did a fantastic job coming in and cleaning every day. We had three families with teenagers and thoroughly enjoyed the pool, and the view was absolutely amazing! I would suggest adding some furniture on the rooftop for possibly being able to eat meals outdoors. That is merely a suggestion, we truly enjoyed this villa and the lovely island.

Lovely Family Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mar Azul offers a family a vacation home that fits all needs. The house is spacious and clean . The pool and patio offers enough space to rest but also you are close enough to watch your kids. The location of the home is perfect. The little beach club is your front view and you are a walk from The Joint. The house gives you the opportunity to view a spectacular sunset and the home is close to the cliffs to watch the sunrise. This home has great energy. The A/Cs worked great, all appliances worked great. We had not one issue at all. If we had a question Greg the house mate as well as the owner were on top of our questions and concerns. Thank you!

Lovely House in Isla Mujeres

  • 4 of 5

This house is truly beautiful. The views are spectacular from almost every room and I never got tired of staring at the breathtaking water. I know some people feel staying far from Centro is not ideal but I just loved being on the South Side of Isla-there are fabulous restaurants within walking distance and it is much more peaceful than Centro. We rented a golf cart for our entire stay which I would definitely recommend. My one and only caution-this house does not have a lot of outdoor space for a large group. We were just three so I felt very comfortable but for a group of eight I would imagine there would not be enough room at the pool for everyone to be there at the same time. There was also nowhere to eat outside (full table and chairs) which was a bit disappointing but we made due. I think adding an eating table to the rooftop deck would be a great addition! And maybe a grill as well! I think it is very clear in the pictures but there is no way to access the water from this house-there is a small beach club right across the street-once again clearly stated in the ad and Playa Norte is just a 20 minute golf cart ride away. I am not sure I would return to Isla Mujeres-it is a truly beautiful place but the beaches and town do get quite crowded which is not really my scene. But if i was to return I would definitely consider this home again. Thanks to Ashley for being so easy to work with and answering all my questions!

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you and your guests enjoyed your vacation in Isla and thank you for the wonderful compliments on our home.. I love the privacy at the South Point and the sunsets don't get any ore spectacular either. In regards to the pool area needing a table big enough for your group size.. our sliding glass doors that completely open all the way to let you bring the "outside-inside" where there is plenty of seating for everyone. We are planning in the very near future we are going to have furniture custom built for our rooftop.. as it is a very large area to entertain guests and have special events as well. We would love to have you back to stay.. Thank you again Amy.

Very happy with our stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying on the south end of Isla. Both times we rented a home with a private pool and vacationed with another couple (no kids).

The home itself is about perfect for 2 couples with plenty of room to spare. All three bedrooms were nice, clean, and well furnished. In fact, everything was clean throughout. Nice large bathrooms attached to each bedroom. We stayed in the bedroom with no view next to the living room and had no complaints about noise when people were watching TV in the living room. The home we stayed in the previous year didn’t have English speaking TV channels so it was nice that this home had Dish network. The Wi-Fi was strong and fast throughout the house. There is plenty of seating in the living room. It’s not the most comfortable furniture to lounge on but it gets the job done.

The outdoor space was nice and the pool was always clean. We didn’t really use the rooftop. Really the only semi-negative thing I would say about the whole house is that the description/pictures don’t really show that this house has a duplex type of layout. This isn’t a big issue when you’re inside the house but when you’re outside keep in mind that there is another pool right next door and can get pretty loud if the wrong people are on the other side. I would have still rented the place if I would have known this but I would have liked to see this in the pictures. A wall does separate the lounge area but if you’re in the pool you have a direct view to the pool on the other side. I hate to even mention this fact because the rest of the house is excellent and like I said, it didn’t turn out to be a huge deal.

The housecleaner was there for a couple hours each day and did an amazing job. She came the same time every day and did a great job of staying out of the way and doing her work.

If you haven’t stayed on the south side of Isla just keep in mind that you will need to rent a golf cart since the entertainment and dining is too far away to walk. The Joint across the street is a good option but it’s only open until 6pm.

Overall we had a great trip and I would definitely stay here again when we come back to Isla.

Owner's Response: Thank you Curtis for the wonderful review.. we truly appreciate all the suggestions and comments.. Our home is a seperate (or can be rented together) with our other family home next door... we have a door that is locked for both homes or can be unlocked for larger groups or weddings.. and the 2 private pools makes it a real treat.. • Thank you so much for your wonderful comments and suggestions for things to do and see around the island for future guests.. Our goal is to provide all of the little beach extras for our guests so they can enjoy an effortless and relaxing stay in our home...but have all the amenities as home. We look forward to having you back for your next island getaway. Thank you again you your and your family..

I will never forget and DEFINITELY be back

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation have had in a while. Loved the house, atmosphere, and quite solitude there. Everything was just as it should be. The staff was friendly, helpful, and willing to do some crazy stuff we asked. Definitely will be back a lot sooner then I thought I would. Thank you for a great birthday vacation!
