Overview

About the property

3-3, 2 Living, 3 Private Decks Facing Caribbean, Rooftop Palapa, Dipping Pool!

Our home, Casa Chulita, sits about 12 feet from the Caribbean so the views are magical and at night you fall asleep to the sound of the sea. There is a dipping pool with a bar right on the sea, an updated penthouse master suite, including an en suite master bathroom, new king-sized bed and lots of built-in closets, in addition to the private terrace facing the sea with outdoor double jacuzzi and shower...you can look at the ocean and sky while taking a shower. It's a slice of heaven! With 3 decks, a palapa, 2 living areas, 3 bedrooms (1 king, 2 queens, plus futon in one living area), and a kitchen there are many places in Casa Chulita where each person can have a quiet place to read or relax, and of course plenty of space to have fun together as a group. There is an outdoor grill by the dipping pool. Our home is comfy and full of good art, some local folk art and some other pieces we love. I commissioned a large carved and painted piece of folk art for the living room that depicts many of the highlights of Isla Mujeres. It's become quite a "thing" with folks on the island.

Location! Location! Location! For our family, one of the best things about Casa Chulita is that you don't need a car. Casa Chulita is in Centro, which in Isla Mujeres means it's downtown (it is the north end of the island, so the term Centro can be confusing), so you can easily walk to everything, shops, restaurants, bars, various beaches, North Beach! But even though it's downtown Casa Chulita is located in an area that is quiet, (except for the entrancing sound of the ocean). As the house is on the Malecon, you have a perfect running/walking trail on the sea right out the door. A little laundry opened very close by. They do an excellent job -- separate, wash, dry, & fold your laundry, even take care of delicate items --for about $4 for two loads! (who wants to do laundry on vacation?)There is a gym that costs about $2 per day in walking distance, a masseuse who will come to the house, yoga classes down the street, and even great restaurants who will deliver if you just don't feel like leaving your beautiful view or seaside retreat.

The people of Isla Mujeres are some of the nicest people in the world. It is a friendly, safe Mexican town, yet full of international appeal as people from many countries live there and some of them have fortunately opened great restaurants. Besides the delicious fresh fish and local Mexican cuisine, there are excellent Cuban, French, Italian, Asian, Caribbean, Thai, American, Canadian, Middle Eastern, and Mediterranean restaurants. Foodies will love it and Casa Chulita is near all of them!

If you love the ocean, good food, and fun you will love Casa Chulita!

Awesome view and wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house and everything about it. We really loved the dipping pool! This was our first time to stay on Isla Mujeres. We enjoyed the quiet, laid back atmosphere of the island and will definitely be back!

Great house & location ~ loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We would love to stay here again. The house was great and we could walk everywhere! Kitchen was well stocked with cooking items. Air conditioning & fans worked well. The only drawback was the "dipping pool" (which looks like a large Jacuzzi tub on the first floor patio) is not heated, so it was cold in March.

Great time at Casa Chulita!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit to Casa Chulita. Dede and Monica were great getting us to the house and Brendan was on site and waited for us even after our ferry was delayed. The house is a short walk from the ferry and backs up to the ocean. It has a great feel to it. First floor is great to hang out and nice appointed kitchen. Third floor has a covered porch with view of bay and nice breezes. Master suite has nice deck and second floor bedroom has nice deck as well. House has many cool art and wall hangings. Sydney did a great job with paintings btw. The beds were really comfortable and the 2nd floor futon was comfy for one person. Monica even brought over bed sheets and extra blankets. (thank you!). The house is right downtown on Ave Juarez. La Lomita is one block down towards town. Had really nice meals there. Easy walk to shops and great food. We rented golf carts and they dropped off and picked up. (only be aware you need to pay cash or get nicked for 6% CC fee). It was convenient though. The house also had beach blankets, big bottled water, and some snorkeling gear. we brought our own but it was nice to have. all in all a great place.

A slice of heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful casa for a week at the end of August/early September and I fell in love. The location is incredible and the views are breathtaking. We had some storms at sea that week and the surf was so beautiful and soothing to the ear.

My favorite feature of the casa was the balcony off of the master bedroom which had a place to relax, plus a Jacuzzi tub and an outdoor shower. I love an outdoor shower and to be able to shower watching the sea and the waves splash was delightful.

The house itself was set up very nicely. We were two couples and our adult children and there truly were spaces that we could all be together and lots of places that you could have some quiet time. The owner is a joy to work with as is the management company. My sister is a chef and she enjoyed the kitchen. She made us breakfast on several days and even cooked dinner one night for 14 of us as we had friends also on Isla that week and there was plenty of room to spread out and enjoy.

I was hesitant to give the place five stars only because, I would love to keep this place a secret so that it is available for my family in the future but that would be too selfish. If I could have given it more stars, I would have. Thank you Dede for sharing your wonderful Casa with the world. It is paradise.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are even remodeling the kitchen right now to make it even better! I am especially happy that you love the outdoor shower as I think it's my favorite thing about the house.... daytime with the sea, nighttime with the stars... a private shower is a glorious experience! Also, you made me giggle about not wanting to review it well because you want it for future stays. We hear that often, but please now that all of our guests who return get a discount because in my perfect world, our guests would only be folks who know and love our home, but of course, we welcome new travelers who want a fabulous experience, because we will find more new lovers of Casa Chulita!

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in our group loved this home. We were two families, 7 total, children and adults. Casa Chulita had everything we needed to feel at home, plus wonderful views of the ocean in almost every room. Four fantastic outside areas/decks to hang out on. Outdoor shower, jacuzzi, pool, palapa, just awesome. We also just sat right out in front of the home in the evenings enjoying the neighborhood ambience.

Location is great, as it is walking distance to anything in el centro and Playa Norte. It is on a charming street with great neighbors and businesses so close. Las Lomitas restaurant(delicious) is just a few houses down and across from it is a laundry service that makes your clothes so soft and smell so good.

The house is equipped with everything you would find in your home and more. To include beach towels, chairs, coolers and shopping bags for el mercado. The complimentary mid week housekeeping was awesome.

We had a fantastic time and felt so at home and cannot wait to return to Casa Chulita next summer. Thank you Dede and Monica for everything.

The house was beautiful and very accomadating!

  • 5 of 5

We loved waking up to the sunrise on Isla Mujeres in the top two bedrooms. It was breath taking. We were a short walk from shopping and lots of wonderful restaurants.

We can't wait to come back.

Map

Car: not necessary

Casa Chulita has it all... it is quiet, private, right on the Caribbean but in Centro, meaning 'in town' which means that it is a short walk to everything, shops, restaurants, yoga, bars, dancing and North Beach which is rated at one of the top 10 Beaches in the World. The people of Isla are some of the friendliest in the world; the local food is delicious serving fresh fish and various regional dishes of Mexico. Isla is also a very international community and many of the transplants have opened restaurants, gelaterias, espresso bars, etc.! So you can sample authentic Cuban, Italian, French, Middle Eastern, Asian, Caribbean, American, and Canadian cuisine. In the summer months, you can swim with whale sharks... don't miss these gorgeous creatures. If you are a diver, explore the underwater sculpture garden. Go to Garrafon Park for the day where you can snorkel, zip line, swim and have lots of adventure. There are walkways everywhere along the sea so you can go for a run or stroll right next to the ocean.
