Isla Mujeres house description

Casa Isla blends Mexican contemporary architecture with a Zen feel for the ultimate luxury retreat. The house is on the tip of Isla Mujeres on a cliff overlooking the turquoise waters of the Bay of Cancun. Unobstructed ocean views from every room are breathtaking. Colorful fish and giant rays glide serenely through the crystal waters and frigate birds hang in the sky, making you feel like you're the only person for miles. The beach is a five minute walk or you may just want to relax by the infinity pool and let the sound of the ocean melt away the stress of everyday life.

Isla Mujeres is a Caribbean gem easily available from Cancun by ferry, but once you are there, it feels miles away. The island is known for its friendly people, welcoming atmosphere, relaxing vibe and world class beaches, fishing, diving and snorkeling. Punta Sur, where the house is located, is known for its serenity, tranquility and unparalleled views.

The house was constructed by the owners as their dream home and ultimate retreat. They worked with a renowned local architect and the house is a masterpiece of shapes, form, color, light and air. All local natural materials were used, from the signature giant banyan trees which define the generous outdoor spaces, to the custom woodwork in every room, to the natural Mayan marble used throughout the house. The main space is a huge open living room, dining room and kitchen which spans 45 feet and opens onto an outdoor dining room, living room and pool with terrace, hot tub, and palapita, all overlooking the ocean. Eighteen feet of glass panels in the living room fully retract into the wall so the house becomes completely open to the breezes and waves. Accommodations for six include three deluxe suites, each with air conditioning, ceiling fans, a safe, and en suite bathroom with walk in stone shower. All bedrooms and bathrooms have ocean views and are completely private. Ten and a half foot ceilings throughout the house give the feeling of openness, light, and airiness. The infinity pool has a shallow shelf for lounge chairs and a hot tub for 10 people. A thatched palapita next to the pool is great for enjoying cocktails at ocean's edge. The roof deck lounge is wonderful for watching sunrises or stargazing at night.

Casa Isla has all amenities, including wireless DSL internet, satellite TV, sound system with IPod docking station and free local and long distance calling.

Restaurants and a beach with swimming and snorkeling are a five minute walk.

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About: We live in Boston and have been coming to Isla Mujeres for 25 years as a getaway from the harsh winters. We are very fortunate that we were able to build our dream house in such a spectacular setting.

                      Why Isla Mujeres:
                      We love the tranquil feeling of Isla Mujeres, the gorgeous blue waters and warm breezes, and the friendly Mexican people. We know the island well, and always loved the extreme south point with its views of the Bay of Cancun and the Caribbean Sea surrounding you on all sides. Because there are only a few lots on the point, when one became available we felt like we'd won the lottery. Isla is an easy trip from Boston and we feel at home as soon as we arrive.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Casa Isla has the best location on the island. The front yard is the Caribbean Sea and the back yard and main orientation of the house is the Bay of Cancun. We can sit by the pool for hours watching the colors of the ocean change, seeing fish and rays swim by, and frigate birds hang on the wind. The roofdeck overlooking the ocean to the east and south is wonderful for coffee in the morning because of its privacy, and we often go there to watch the sunrise or lie on the chaises to see the stars. The fact that we can walk to some of our favorite lunch and dinner spots is a bonus.
