Caribbean Cottage - Ocean Front Private Bungalow, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Caribbean Cottage - Ocean Front Secluded Bungalow with Private Courtyard

PERFECT PRIVACY for your HONEYMOON, ANNIVERSARY, or ROMANTIC RETREAT!!!

Wake up each morning to the sun rising over the Caribbean Sea right outside your bedroom window and let the sea lull you to sleep each night.

This new, private, beach house offers all the comforts of your own home along with access to the beach. This one bedroom house with a king-size bed boasts a complete kitchen with everything you need for cooking your own meals if you choose to do so. Dining area, living room and bedroom with TV/DVD (for DVDs only, no television service), air conditioning, full bathroom with shower, and an eco-landscaped private front courtyard.

Take long leisurely walks along the shore and the cliffs of Punta Sur, search for shells, soak up the sun, take a dip in the Caribbean sea, sleep in, read a long book, work on a puzzle, or watch a favorite DVD while you let yourself relax and drop out of the world for a while. And it's only a short drive to the sandy Northern Beaches and fun shops and great restaurants in town.

Isla Mujeres is approximately 5 miles long by 1/2 mile wide and Margaritaville Beach House is about 1 mile from the southern tip of the island and about 3 1/2 miles from the downtown area and North Beach which is the popular beach for tanning and swimming. This is a very laid back island and Margaritaville is in a secluded, beautiful location, with only 1 neighbour (to the south) for over a mile. If you are looking for a place to kick back and get away from the world, you can find that here. The sand is white and the water is absolutely blue.

For seclusion, privacy, location, view, and reasonable rates, you cannot beat Margaritaville!

Guest comments:

'What a wonderful time we had in Isla! Your home is magnificent. Sleeping to the sound of the ocean waves lapping on the rocks was a real treat and sunrise was spectacular! I hope we can return to Margaritaville soon.'

'After we walked in and viewed the Caribbean from both the living and bedroom's 6 foot sliding glass doors, we were indeed in heaven. The courtyard was very impressive and so quiet and private. Go to the back of the house to enjoy the crashing waves and ocean breeze while sitting on the tiered patio. We want to keep this a secret but.... It is so peaceful, away from the hustle and bustle yet a short distance from the Colonias or even Centro for your need for great dining, fishing, boating and people watching. Margaritaville is definitely a simple yet tranquil place to reside for a romantic getaway. We intend to come back year after year. We cannot wait to come back and stay!!!'

'We spent the most relaxing 4 weeks in this beautiful, comfortable, well-equipped casa. Caretakers are very attentive and friendly. Sitting in the courtyard or seaside were equally relaxing and entertaining. Lots of flora and fauna. Safe, clean, and very private. Thank you for sharing with us. We love Isla Mujeres.'

'We enjoyed your house very much. You have done such a wonderful job decorating.It was one of the best vacations I have ever had. So relaxing. I plan on returning some day.'

'I think this was the best time I've ever had on Isla. Thanks so much for the accommodations. It really made the trip.'

About Monica Quintos

We are Real Estate Agents in Alberta, Canada and are excited to own Margaritaville Beach House and to be able to share it with others seeking peace, quiet and relaxation on the beach!

Monica Quintos purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Monica Quintos chose Quintana Roo

We visted Isla Mujeres for the first time in 2006 during our Vacation in Cancun. We loved that it was only a 20 minute ferry ride from Cancun, but still so quiet and relaxed. When we visted again in 2009 and saw that Margaritaville was For Sale, we could not resist purchasing our own piece of paradise! It is in such a wonderful location and is in great condition with beautiful decor, and we could not be happier with our Beach House!

What makes this bungalow unique

Margaritaville is the perfect retreat for any individual or couple that is seeking peace, quiet and relaxation away from all the daily routines and stresses. It is an amazing place to kick back, relax, and be as 'natural' as you like because the house and large courtyard are very private. With such a great location, view, and price, you will be so happy that you chose Margaritaville Beach House!

Relaxing vacation with outstanding view.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 10 days. The cottage itself is quite rustic, however it has everything you will need. The bed is extremely firm, but the view makes up for it. Bring plenty of books or DVDs to play if you want to watch shows. The movies and tv shows are from 2006. But we found some entertaining. Remember there is only wifi at some restaurants, not at property. The cottage is located on the south side of the island and is very quiet. Yes, the property is across the street from the trash transfer/dump. But you never see it unless you are leaving the property. We never smelt anything at all. We highly suggest renting a golf cart. We negotiated a great rate at Isla Golf Cart Rental (one block east of the ferry).

You will want to get groceries from the Chedraui, it's like a small Walmart.

We purchased island maps from www.cancunmap.com for Isla mujeres. It's a 4 map set for $15. We used them constantly and left them for others at the cottage.

Some restaurants we recommend are Cafe Mogagua, Oscars, Maria Kankin. The best is Carribean Brisas by far.

We visited the Turtle Farm, Punta Sur-Goddess Ixchel, had cocktails at sunset at Playa Lancheros and Casa de los Suenos we had a great sunset dinner and were surprised when Jamie, the owner told us that fire dancers were performing. It was a fun surprise. It's a great place for drinks and watching football.

As far as beaches: we rented a beach bed at Oceans Beach Club for $20 at Playa Norte, and at El Centro Beach you can rent 2 chairs with umbrella for $15. We went to The Mia Resort (all inclusive ) and bought a one day pass for $30 each. It was a nice report but the food wasn't fresh and in my option you're better off renting chairs in El Centro. One our last day we walked to the end of the street at El Centro and found the Mayan Beach Club and rented chairs on a beautiful beach. It was $400 pesos you use as a food credit- so drink and eat up. We wish we found this place earlier.

We are looking forward to visiting Isla mujeres again.

Unbelievable

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have traveled to Mexico dozens of times but this was the first time we got off the ALL INCLUSIVE routine. It was incredible. The house is magnificent. I dont understand why it isnt booked everyday of the year. The setting couldnt be better. The house has everything you could possibly need. (even a cooler) We shopped at the local grocery stores, dined at the restaurants and went to mass on Sunday, all via golf cart. Truly an "Unbelievable" experience. I just hope no one takes our dates when word gets out. If you like Mexican culture, miles of private ocean front and world class local cuisine, stop looking.

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome for many reasons! We had it booked earlier in the year and had to cancel at the very last minute due to a family emergency. Monica was great to work with and allowed us to reschedule without penalty. Once we arrive it was everything we expected and more!!! This is the perfect house and location of a couple!!!!!!

Still the best property on Isla Mujeres

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh year at the house. We only get two weeks in March to be there and the time flies so fast. It's home to us now. Perfectly comfortable and happy. We so enjoy the walking trail to Punta Sur and traveled it almost every day. What views! In fact we walk many places at that end of the island. There are many fine restaurants in Colonia La Gloria and the area. Don't miss Limon, Mango Café, Playa Lancheros, Capitan Dulche, Caribbean Brisas, La Bruja and so many others. We enjoy the neighborhood and all the local people there. We've made so many local friends on Isla and enjoy our yearly visits with them. The house has a such a feeling of quiet and isolation even though the area is busy with tourist traffic on the main road. Inside the courtyard and outside on the patio, you can't even hear anything but the ocean and the birds. The house is very clean and comfortable with all the conveniences you'll need. If you're nature lovers and enjoy peace and quiet, this is the place. We've already booked for 2017.

Short of expectations

  • 3 of 5

We want to be measured in our comments because you are right Margaritaville Beach House is a beautiful little bungalow perched just above the shore on Isla Mejeures' open side. We loved the crashing waves and the great walks along the shore. It is in many ways a perfect and romantic getaway - but all that was tempered by some disappointments about both the island itself and the Margaritaville Beach House. Let me explain ...

We arrived at night with a vague understanding of where the beach house was ... secured a taxi, asked an English speaking taxi attendant to confirm the price before we got in and was told $400 pesos .... not knowing much better and trusting the experience we were taken to Margaritaville Beach House. You will know my point already - we were played for fools and lied to and as a first experience on Isla it was not an easy one to forget. We only learned later through honest taxi drivers that we should have been charged 40 pesos, not 400!

Perhaps it would help to avoid that kind of 'bad impression' by requiring taxis to post a rate schedule or failing that put a schedule online o an FAQ for visitors.It is a story we will tell about visiting Isla and give people pause about visiting your beautiful island.

The beach house is special but it was disappointing when the toilet seat broke (someone had used a light glue to secure it but it was never going to stay secure). However something we could 'work around' - not so much, when the the water ran dry - for two days. We found it was a plumbing issue and managed a work around for that - but no water for toilet, shower or cleaning dishes. We were of course given a cell phone with the local number for the manager. I could not get through to the manager so left a message. She never called back nor did she drop in to see all was satisfactory - and then to add salt to that irritation - that phone went dead and would not accept a charge so became unusable.

And then the final straw: We had been told with great enthusiasm about the incredible frontage of the Caribbean at Margaritaville Beach House - we had not been told that Margaritaville Beach House backs onto the island's garbage dump. When the wind changed the smell was awful.

There is one last observation that may feel unfair to you - I don't mean it to be - but the island is filthy with garbage strewn everywhere - it affected our visit to your island.

So I'm sorry to be so candid but I say all this hoping you trust it to be helpful. Tony
