Oceanfront w/beachfront 3 bedroom, 3 bath private home/Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Bath
Bernadette and I met in 1979, married and settled into a small rural community west of Minneapolis where we enjoy the peace and tranquility of the nature around us. The early years did not afford much opportunity for travel but when our son left for college we decided to fulfill our desire to escape the cold and snow of Minnesota and travel to warmer climates. We traveled to many beautiful places over the past 10 years including the Florida Keys, Cabo San Lucas, Belize and many other areas of the Yucatan peninsula. . We first came to Isla Mujeres in the spring of 2003 where we fell in love with the beauty and simplicity of this paradise island. For those who appreciate all that the Caribbean has to offer, this island has it all. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets, gorgeous sand beaches, ocean breezes, great food, snorkeling, fishing… the list goes on and on. Perhaps the greatest asset that the island has to offer is the people who live here. They are warm and friendly and eager to make your stay in paradise one that you will never forget. Come join us!
Owner purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Owner chose Isla Mujeres
We were thrilled to find a home located right on the water that has access to a sandy beach for a large part of the year. After extensive renovations, we have created a place that we are happy to call home
What makes this Villa unique
Location, location, location!!! We love being on the Caribe side where we have cooling breezes during the hottest of months. Opening the sliding doors gives you a living experience that can't be beat. From April to October we enjoy having an incredible beach right outside our door. An extra plus - the sea turtles love using that beach to lay their eggs. An extra special benefit is that we are on the edge of the colonia Meterologica where there are numerous restaurants with everything from inexpensive loncharias serving tasty Mexican fare to the well-known Mango's cafe and Monchi's just down the block. There is also a bakery and very nice convenience store right nearby. If you like walking, the beginning of the newly constructed ocean-front walkway starts just on the other side of the property where you can enjoy a 3/4 mile walk along the Caribe.

The best vacation home on the island!
We've stayed on the island many times before, often at one of the more famous on Playa Norte, but we've been craving a bit of a change. This home was perfect for us. So close to so many great food options, yet also well outfitted for cooking at home, we were able to have the exact type of day we wanted, without compromise. We loved our little beach, and the private pool is a great alternative when you're looking for a bit less salt. The bedrooms are very well air-conditioned, and the home is situated on the windy side of the island during the summer so although the common areas aren't air conditioned, you probably won't mind! The owners and the management company were SUPER responsive to every question or request, and the overall experience is one where we can't imagine going back and staying anywhere else. Make sure to read the very helpful binder of advice regarding local restaurants and stores, and make sure to leave enough time in your island schedule to just sit and enjoy the amazingly beautiful sunrises each morning!
This is paradise
This is the perfect house. The view is amazing and when you completely open the front room you get a nice cool breeze off the ocean. Only things to be aware of: There is no dishwasher (but it didn’t matter as we didn’t cook much) and the house actually sits on rocks above the beach, not directly on it. It’s no big deal, it’s easy to get down there by a path (or over the rocks). We will definitely stay here again.
Hi Katherine, We’re so happy you enjoyed your time. The access to the beach looks tricky but we have watched 80 year old local women get down the paths. We’d love to have you stay again. Berna and Phil
YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS PLACE
From the minute we stepped onto the property to the moment we had to leave our stay was everything and more. The place is pristine! Everything you need is there. The information provided covers any single need you might have. Everyone connected with this property was expedient, polite, caring and got us what we needed. We are in the process of booking our next trip back. We went the 3rd week of June and was able to use the beach in front of the property everyday. No issues with anything. The pictures you see are accurate and don't completely tell how beautiful the place! Can't wait to be back! Don & Becky
Hi Don and Becky, We we’re excited to hear that you had a beach below the house. It is one of the things that make us think it is the best summer beachfront rental. Thank you for your comments on the cleanliness of the house and timeliness of our property managers’ response to issues you might. We are very happy with our Team Serenidad. We hope you choose to stay in the future. Berna and Phil
Exactly where you want to be
Casa de Serenidad was perfect for the recent trip to Isla that I took with friends! There were six of us and - with two to a bedroom - we had plenty of room. The house has two sets of big sliding glass doors that open onto a huge patio, which is amply furnished, giving you plenty of options for places to sit back and relax. During the day, I spent a good deal of time just hanging out with a drink, taking in the amazing view from the patio. (We were there for a week, and that view never got old.) In the evenings, we'd sit outside under the stars and talk, enjoying the perfectly cool ocean breeze. It's so calm, you'd think you were on your own private island.
This was my first time on Isla, and I absolutely loved it. The house contributed to this experience a great deal, as it's in the perfect location. A quick walk or golf cart ride takes you anywhere you want to go, including restaurants, sites, and the supermarket. When we didn't want to drive ourselves, like on nights we went downtown to enjoy the local nightlife, we also found it easy to hail a cab from right outside the house. My favorite place we ate is called Madera, which doubles as a beautiful art gallery. (We actually went twice!) While you're there, get the pork belly rice bowl. You won't regret it. Just as you won't regret booking this lovely house.
Last, but certainly not least, thanks to Phil and Berna for their generosity and hospitality. This isn't a trip I will soon forget. I've already recommended it to my family for a future getaway!
Thank you for your wonderful review, Andrew. You’ve captured everything that we love about Casa de Serenidad and the island of Isla Mujeres. We’re so happy you had a good time and hope your return.
Location, Location, Location
This is an amazing home. My wife and I decided to give ourselves a treat while we were in Isla Mujeres. It is difficult to imagine a better choice. The gate opens to a wonderful view of the Caribbean. The home opens wide to let the breeze in. There are spaces where you can bask in the sun and spaces where you can hide from the sun. You don't ever need to leave the property, but if you do you will find several wonderful restaurants nearby. You can walk to the grocery store. I will return.
Thank you so much for your kind words. We were so happy to have you as our guests and you are welcome back anytime. The Efrons.
My husband, two adult children and their partners were very lucky to spend 10 days at Casa de Serenidad. What a spot, spectacular views, outstanding outdoor space including a dipping pool. The house was spotless, charming and comfortable. We couldn’t have asked for a better vacation home ❤️
