Isla Mujeres condo description

If you've been looking for that perfect R&R vacation, LOOK NO FURTHER!

From modern, up-scale accommodations, stunning views, the beautiful white sand beach of Playa Norte and an incredible calm, shallow swimming area, Ixchel II will not disappoint!

Our spacious fifth floor balcony looks out over palm trees and the azure-blue waters toward Cancun. Take in the view while enjoying your morning coffee, lunch or a dinner-time cocktail. The balcony is accessed from both the living room and master suite through wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling three-panel sliding doors that push back to one panel and open the rooms up to the outdoors.

The spacious, comfortable rooms are well appointed with tile throughout, granite countertops, large, glass-enclosed showers and individual climate controls.

Our kitchen gives you the opportunity to maintain some of your mealtime routines while on vacation. We like to have breakfast and lunch on the balcony and then wander downtown for dinner out. The large local grocery store has everything you need - fresh fruits and veggies, fresh meats, a deli, bakery, pharmacy, wine, beer and alcohol. It is about a five block walk from Ixchel - we like to wander back via the newly created walkway along the Caribbean side.

The downtown area is two short blocks from Ixchel. There you will find lots of shops, friendly locals and excellent, reasonably priced restaurants. The fresh seafood is exceptional. Closer to 'home', the Sunset Grill, just down the beach from Ixchel, offers great meals right on the beach, just feet from the waters edge.

We can offer you 3 rental options, the full 2BR/2BA suite, or we can lock-off the 2nd bedroom and rent the 1BR suite (king bed in master room with separate living/dining/kitchen) or the standard (hotel-type) unit with a queen and a double bed. The standard does not have front balcony access but you can sit out on the walkway side of the building and enjoy the great view/sunsets!

Ixchel operates as a hotel, with some units privately owned. Since our bookings go through the hotel reservations desk, you can rest assured that your reservation is secure and all will be in order when you arrive.

                        Can't wait to get back to Isla! When we got to Ixchel, I was blown away at the hospitality of the desk staff and the concierge's "welcome home"....he is nothing short of AMAZING by the way. Top five from us: The beach at Ixchel - the white, powdery sand that never gets hot. Uncrowded. The crystal clear water mere steps from the room! We drove all over the island and never found a beach that we liked more than the one right there at Ixchel. The condo - plenty of room, overlooking the pools and the beach! So much better than just a hotel. Some very nice touches with a supply of books and DVDs. Loved the deck and the huge sliding windows, and that it gets shade all day long...it's never unpleasant to sit outside and watch the fun below. The hospitality - The concierge (they won't let me post his name) is the ultimate problem solver, restaurant recommender, golf cart arranger, shuttle arranger, you name it, he fixes it or finds it and delivers it right to you. The rest of the staff at Ixchel are quite incredible too - very helpful, VERY attentive and always trying their best to serve us. In general the hospitality and graciousness of all the folks on Isla is wonderful, very pleasant to walk the streets and not feel accosted by aggressive sales folks. Although they are selling their goods too, it's much more relaxed, quiet and they don't chase you down the street. Prices are a third of what they were at Playa del Carmen too! Food - Happily surprised at the number and quality of restaurants that don't serve Mexican food. So many that we didn't have time to experience them all. Very impressed with the seafood and the traditional dishes as well. Exceptionally great note - there are about 10 restaurants from the north to the very south of the island where you can charge your meal to your room! Closeness of everything - golf cart or walking or taxi...so easy to get around and "feel" the Isla way of life. Thank you so much!

                        This was our first visit to Isla Mujeres and we had a fantastic stay. The Ixchel is a wonderful condo/hotel located on the north end of the island. Relatively new build, and very well-maintained. The staff is incredibly warm and friendly. Fantastic location -- short walk to the beach and excellent little restaurant/bar that serves you out in the sun. Chairs and umbrella come with the stay, which was great. We stayed in the smaller single "hotel-style" room (the separate bedroom with private entrance) at this property and loved it. Very spacious and clean. Dehumidifier was nice. Loved the bathroom and shower. Flatscreen TV and cable with DVD player, small fridge and coffee maker also "pluses." The owners were very friendly, responsive and helpful with the booking and alleviating concerns about getting to/from the airport, checking in, etc. Bottom line: an incredible value. We look forward to coming back in the future and recommending it to all our friends.

                        Recommended for: Tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

                        We brought our family of 8 here Jan 1-8, 2011. We all had a great time the units where perfect! The location is great. It was very relaxing at night. No loud people. The cleaning staff did a great job. The front desk was very helpful. We rented two golf carts right from the hotel. They were delivered and picked up right there. No worries! We went fishing for 4 hours and caught two sail fish, gruper and snapper. We took them back to the condo and cooked them up on the grill out on the deck. It was perfect! Brenda was very helpful in our reservation process. It was very easy and my husband and I are hoping to go again in 2012. I would recommend this unit and the island to anyone. This was our second trip to ISLA and I wish we were back right now since it is below zero with tons of snow here.

                        I just returned on Saturday after 10 glorious days in Isla; staying in Ixchel II in this "standard" room, but I wouldn't call it standard in general terms. The room was everything I expected based on the description here. Sunsets outside my door every night. The shower was awesome. I have very thick hair and there are few showers that I can describe that way. I even turned the water pressure down when I showered. As are all beds in Isla, the bed was pretty hard, but Ixchel has bed toppers that they can add by request, so once I requested that after my first night's sleep, all was great. I slept like a baby. I spent many days and many hours on Ixchel's beach; starting with sun and then ending under the umbrella reading. The water was unreal... you just can't descibe the colors and photos just don't do it justice. All other conveniences were there: microwave, tv, fridge, location, location, location. Ixchel is located right at the end of Hildago so everyday, after some breakfast, sun, lunch, sun, nap and then shower... I walked out the main door and wandered down Hildago to see what shops and restaurants caught my attention. Aaahh.... so nice... so easy. I also had the pleasure of getting to meet and spend time with the owners. They are really two of the nicest and accommodating people I've had the pleasure of meeting. This was my first solo trip and when I knew that they were going to be there at the same time in the adjoining suite, I felt like a had a nice safety net. Several nights I met on either their deck or outside our doors (depending on the direction of the wind) for happy hour / sunset viewing. You really have to take advantage of that space outside the entrance. Pull that high top table and chairs out there with a drink and catch that sunset. Beautiful. The staff was also great at Ixchel. Always a smile and always willing to answer any questions I had. The house keeping staff were excellent as well. I'm so depressed I'm not there anymore... I hope to make this an annual event. : )

                        Thoroughly enjoyed every day at this charming, clean and well appointed condo. I agree with everything the other reviewers have written. The beach is extraordinary and everything you need is close at hand. Being within walking distance of the restaurants, shops and a grocery store is a real plus. You get to enjoy the ambiance of small town Mexico but are only 15-20 minutes from the mainland. Can't wait to go back. I would definitely recommend to friends a relatives.

                        This condo offers lovely accommodations as well as a primo location. It's so nice to head down the elevator and be on the beach in three minutes. The Comono (restaurant on the property) waiters (serving on the beach or poolside) are on hand to keep the cold beverages and snacks coming. Bring a raft because this is some of the most beautiful, clear shallow water I've ever encountered. Really great for rafting in the afternoon. It was the perfect way to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The patio is dynamite for watching sunsets and sunrises, too, for the early birds. The bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and dining area are roomy and well appointed with attractive plates and utensils. Lots of great restaurants near by and a grocery store close by for keeping the basics on hand. A can't miss!

                        My husband and I had the most relaxing time. The staff at the condos are fantastic. They work hard to make sure you have a perfect time. Everything is nice and clean. Really enjoyed the towel animals every day that housekeeping did for us. We enjoyed the balcony, eating, reading, the sunsets, watching the people on the North Beach. It could not have been more perfect. We were sad to leave and can't wait till we can return again! What a great place!

                        Just returned from a wonderful week on Isla Mujeres at the Ixchel II condo. The experience was beyond our expectation! The condo was very comfortable. Great bed,large bathroom, modern kitchen.We loved the floor to ceiling windows leading out to a large balcony with a stunning view of the ocean. We spent all of our time at the condo on the deck! The staff was very helpful and always so friendly. It felt like home! The location on Norte Beach couldn't be better. It definitely is the best beach on the island, and so shallow! Perfect for children! In addition, I found a great place to snorkel within walking distance! Each night we would walk out our condo and down Hidalgo street, which is lined with restaurants and shops, to find a place for dinner. We were never disappointed with the food or the prices. Isla Mujeres is the direct opposite of Cancun and we loved it! So if you are looking for quiet and total relaxation with a beautiful view and oustanding beach, this is the place for you! Everyone at Ixchel is wonderful, including the owners of this condo.

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Brenda and Clay Larson live in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. Situated at the center of a 90 mile long lake, Kelowna has a wonderful, four-seasons climate, and has become a destination for golfers, skiers, and wine lovers! Clay is a retired lawyer and Brenda, a retired teacher, keeps busy developing and marketing her Itchy’s Alphabet, a line of products designed to teach children letter sounds and letter formations.

                      Why the Owner Chose Isla Mujeres:
                      We visited Isla on a day trip from Cancun several years ago and loved the friendly people, gorgeous beach and great restaurants! In 2007 we decided to spend 2 weeks on the island and were looking at real estate by the end of that trip! We love Isla!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      Our idea of paradise is sitting on the balcony with a coffee or margarita and gazing out at the view and the incredible azure blue water. It takes your breath away! After a leisurely outdoor breakfast, we head to the beach with our books and our floating chairs! Afternoon options include lunch on the beach or the balcony, more beach time, perhaps a siesta, a margarita . . . . . Hard to decide some days! Evenings find us downtown trying to decide which of the many great restaurants we will eat at that night. More hard decisions! If we can pull ourselves off the beach, we enjoy renting a golf cart for a tour of the Island - the turtle farm is a must see! We can book snorkeling, scuba, whale shark swimming or any of the mainland tours right from the hotel or the vendors downtown. The staff at Ixchel II are wonderful and do everything possible to make our stay enjoyable! We can't wait to get back!!!
