About the property

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

Caribbean Cottage - Ocean Front Secluded Bungalow with Private Courtyard


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 Christa Jones

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!

Christa Jones purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why Christa Jones 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!

Wake up to gorgeous sunrises; fall asleep to the sound of crashing waves.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Margaritaville. Incredibly secluded, this little house was practically right on the water! It felt as though we had our own private beach. Out of the four days spent at Margaritaville we only saw a couple of people. The sunrises each morning were almost as phenomenal as falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves each night. Very comfortable firm bed facing the ocean. A fun bonus were the many lizards sun bathing on the wall surrounding the house. The AC units worked well; cooling the house quickly after hot days on the beach. Great location on the south part of the Island. Excellent restaurants/bars and a grocery store were only about a 10 min. golf cart ride away. We chose to get the data stick for internet, it was reliable and provided fast internet (we were able to stream movies/music). Christa and Monica were very responsive via the messaging service on Looking forward to our next stay!

But I repeat myself...

  • 5 of 5

This month we spent our seventh glorious two weeks at Margaritaville Beach House. I don't know what I can say that I haven't already said about this property. It's just perfect for two people. We think it's the best place to stay on Isla Mujeres. But then we love privacy, nature and quiet. Not for those who love the action, nightlife and amenities of all-inclusives or other types of resorts. There's no one but yourself to bring you drinks on the beach. This house is a mere fifty feet from the waves of the Caribbean. That music of nature lulls one to sleep every night...sometimes even in the afternoon. There's a hiking trail that runs from very near the house all the way out to Punta Sur, about two miles. The views are breathtaking. In fact, we walk all around the island, through the neighborhoods, along the lagoons and to many of our favorite restaurants. We've made many local friends on the island and look forward to visiting them every year. The food in the area is outstanding! Oscar's, Playa Lancheros, Limon, Caribbean Brisas, Mango Café, Asia Caribe, Green Verde, Casa de los Suenos and so many others serve up incredibly diverse cuisines. We just can't get enough of this place and would stay all winter if we could. We're already booked for next year and the year after that and the year after that. If you love quiet and nature, this is the place!

Amazing Location, So Private, Very Romantic!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at Margaritaville Beach House from February 23 to March 2nd to celebrate our birthdays. The price was so good for this gorgeous location right on the ocean, only a little ways to the water. It almost felt like we had our own private beach cuz there is only one neighbour house so we enjoyed walking down the rocky beach in our water shoes to the sandy section where we drank and suntanned all alone. The house has beach chairs and a cooler, so we bought beer at the OXXO convenience store and tequila, grenadine and juice at the liquor store (or margarita mix... there is a blender at the house) and we saved quite a bit of money doing drinks that way.

As other reviews said (and we were a bit worried) there is a waste transfer station/dump across the street but we only got smell of it a couple times when driving towards the house in our golf cart, and never when we were at the house... and we left the doors open for the breeze every day. We used the AC at night, which was great to have. I'm happy we took the chance on this house, it was perfect.

The BEST place to eat breakfast is the MANGO cafe, which is on the left side of the street when driving the main highway from the house towards down town. can't miss it... it's an orange building, and always busy! the food is so good there!

We will be back to this house for sure, I couldn't find a better priced single home right on the ocean like this on vrbo.... just condos and we loved the privacy... so we will be back! Oh, and just know that there is no wifi at the house but cafe Mogagua down town has fast, free internet and awesome frappees... we liked disconnecting from life though!

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 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.

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.
