Guests at Casa Perlita have an all access pass to Isla. The home offers 2 large bedrooms – both with a king bed and balcony - 2 bathrooms – one master and one on the main floor, a rooftop seating area and plunge pool, an infinity plunge pool out front, and a full kitchen with new glassware/pots and pans/kitchen utensils (no dishwasher though). There are new flat screen tvs in both bedrooms and the living room. The home has great space and it offers 2 couples the right amount of privacy, but enough space to sleep 6 with the two additional couches in the living area.
Don't want to stay in the mega resorts on Playa Norte? Want to experience a vibrant and authentic island neighborhood? Want the true island experience? Come to Casa Perlita. It's located in Centro. Ocean front. Direct private access to the Malecon. Guillermo the barracuda fisherman lives next door. Loncheria La Lomita is just down the street and the food is amazing. The Super Express grocery store is a quick walk from the house, and you can walk to the North Beach in 10 minutes - ok more like 15 if you stop to buy a few cold Sol along the way! Grab a drink, watch the golf carts cruise past, or the waves crash, your choice.
Casa Perlita has a rooftop patio area and plunge pool, so you can watch the sunset in a hammock swing with a margarita or two. We'll provide a great space for you to kick back and relax. Most of the major furniture in the home is made with reclaimed wood by Oscar Flores of Greenverde. Casa Perlita is a lovely place to get back to the basics.
As owners, we'll interact as little or as much as you'd like. Thinking about booking but have a few questions? Send an email or give us a call! We'll send you a million pictures if you'd like and be 100% honest with you, so you can truly be confident in your booking. Need something or have a question during your stay? Send an email, we're happy to help. We absolutely try our best to anticipate our guest's needs, but there are 7 billion people in the world and we may miss some. Please contact us during your stay to make something right. Just ask, we'll be happy to do our best to accommodate.
Want a home in a great neighborhood on an island in the Caribbean? Got it. Walking distance to Playa Norte and Hidalgo/downtown? Check. If you're doing things right you will see the same people over and over again during your stay. Stop, say hi, chat with them. They don't mind your broken Spanish if you don't mind their broken English. Everyone is friendly and willing to help if you need it. We believe traveling is about new experiences and meeting new people and Isla Mujeres is a great place for both.
Transportation-wise: Walk, rent a golf cart, take a cab (usually ~40-70 pesos). The island is not that big and you'll be able to get around pretty easily whichever way you choose. We recommend using CARM (cancunandrivieramaya.com) for airport transfers. They have local connections and are very responsive.
Other details about the home: We provide filtered water for our guests. Beach and bathroom towels are provided to all of our guests. We have a guest book that has just about everything you need to know about the property. We have a cell phone in the home so you can make local calls. We have 4 collapsible chairs for you to take to the beach. We also provide a portable Bluetooth speaker to use by the pool or bring up to the rooftop. The pool fountain is on from about 10:30am to 3pm and we have pool noodles and mesh floating chairs as well. The pool cleaner comes twice a week. The wifi at the house is generally up and working, but sometimes the wind knocks the lines down, or there's slow connection. In case the wifi is out, call Mundaca to let them know, and just walk down Juarez to Cafe Mogagua. They have great food/coffee (and a bar) and relatively reliable internet. We have a mid-week housekeeping visit to refresh the home during our guests' stays of 7 days or more.
**Update: June 2015 - The neighbor next door has restarted construction of his property - It is intermittent and like most construction on the island, occurs when the owner has some extra money. We are working as closely as we can with him to minimize any possible inconvenience to our guests, but there may be some noise associated with the construction. If you are looking for complete quiet, you might want to look on the south end of the island.
Because I am not on the island full time, I have a fantastic on-island management team at Mundaca to help me professionally manage the property. They do a great job of ensuring our guests are taken care of and have a wealth of information. I know that booking a great vacation rental is such an important thing (I've done it on Isla so many times!) I truly want guests to have a wonderful vacation and I hope you'll choose Casa Perlita for your island getaway!
We love our return guests! If you are looking to book the home for a return stay, please let us know as soon as possible, since the home is booking very quickly!
