This was our first time to Isla Mujeres and it was a wonderful experience. Casa Zama is a unique home even among the other unique homes on the island. Very well maintained in the salt air environment. The sunrise view is surreal and almost not even real looking at times. Breakfast every morning provided except Sunday, you just hop into your golf cart and head to Rooster's for breakfast that day. Your at the south end of the island and you can be on the sunset side in a couple of minutes so you can see both the sunrise and sunset if you wish no problem. All in all an excellent stay.


Use AGI tours (they were recommended by Ron) about as easy as it gets from the airport, ferry and Casa Zama and back. Everyone was where they said they would be when they said they would be.

Have Ron arrange your golf cart , it will be at the casa when you arrive.

Limon Restaurant for an very tasty meal.

Carry a raincoat so you can just ride in your golf cart in the rain if it does.

The Joint Reggae bar is only about five minutes away and has good food and drinks.

Go, stay, and have a Isla adventure.

Best place to stay on the South side

  • 5 of 5

Casa Zama has it all! There is a 180 degree view of the ocean - which can be seen from the pool, living room, kitchen table, both suites and hammocks. The bedrooms have AC and the beds are comfty. You have the option to add a golf cart - do it - this is the best way to get around the island. There is daily breakfast + maid service which is great. For an additional small fee - the cooks will make your other meals too. Do it - ask for molé enchiladas + chile rellanos. I will be dreaming of this place + those meals for a long time...enjoy!

A perfect vacation spot on Isla Mujeres

  • 5 of 5

We spent a bunch of time researching places to stay all over the Caribbean for a spring trip to take with the family and ended up choosing the PERFECT spot - Casa Zama on Isla Mujeres. From the moment we arrived, Casa Zama provided an absolutely amazing vacation experience. We had six in our party - two kids (4 and 7) and four adults and had plenty of space for everyone to stretch out and really just relax. The open, airy feeling throughout the house really immerses you in the natural beauty of the house. The pool, hot tub, hammocks, grassed back yard and rooftop deck are all great outdoor features that our family loved.

In addition to all the great features of the house (they've really thought of everything - down to a great audio system throughout the lower level), the location of the house is perfect. It's close enough to everything (beaches, restaurants, shopping, entertainment) that you never feel out of the way but far enough out that, after an evening "on the town", you can retreat back out to the quiet serenity of Casa Zama and feel like your on a private island. A perfect spot to unplug and relax !

Ron and his team were extremely helpful from first inquiry to vacation departure - making a great experience even better. Breakfasts and daily housekeeping service was great - truly making it feel like vacation in a home-away-from-home location. Clearly, we can't say enough about Casa Zama and are already talking about another visit next spring.

If you're looking for a beautiful house, a perfect setting and a great vacation experience, you will not go wrong at Casa Zama !

Casa Zama is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time my husband and I traveled with another couple to this amazing property. We loved it just as much as we did the first time we stayed here a couple years ago. Working with the owners is a breeze and they have really great recommendations for all things to do on the island! We went scuba diving through the Carey Dive shop and the experience blew all the others away! The bedrooms are essentially separate from the rest of the house giving you privacy and relaxation. Each bedroom is cooled by its own AC unit so you can control your own temp while you sleep. The hot tub is a really great feature, which sounds odd because the weather is really nice, but we loved ending our days relaxing outside in the hot tub. The morning breakfast is alway great! The staff are really nice and attentive. I could go on about how great Casa Zama is and how much we love back to here!

A huge THANK YOU to Mel and guys are great!

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we found Casa Zama and booked it for our 8 day stay on Isla. It was a graduation gift for our daughter, her husband and our son. When we walked through the front gate all of us were completely blown away. The house is absolutely stunning. The architecture is modern, but still retains a wonderful Mexican feel. We felt like Hollywood royalty every time we got home. We spent most of our time on the back patio by the pool, watching the sea turtles play in the waves. Sunrises are especially beautiful and worth getting up for. What a surprise to find that breakfast was included every day! We opted to have a Mexican breakfast cooked by Milli and Karina and they were FANTASTIC!! We looked forward to it each morning. The house is in an ideal location...far enough away from the downtown area that it is quiet, but a great golf cart ride to get to restaurants. Ron and Mel were wonderful hosts and checked on us periodically to see if we needed anything. I would love to rent Casa Zama in the future with a few's a perfect place for families and I think it would be great with friends too.

Loved it!!! Our family will be back!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6, kids aged 17, 15 and twin 11 years old traveled to Isla Mujeres for the first time. We had the good fortune of staying at Casa Zama for 4 nights before leaving for an all-inclusive in Playa Mujueres. Our property conceirge arranged all our transportation and the delivery of our golf carts to the property. We were met at Casa Zama by Greg who showed us the property and then lead the way on his moped, as we followed in our golf carts to escort us to the grocery store to ensure we found it. In the morning, we were pleasantly greeted by Milly and her fabulous breakfast. She prepared the table, cooked, served us and cleaned everything up. LOVED IT!!! The house and the views were spectacular. The two rooms upstairs are huge and the beds very comfortable. The house was very clean! The downstairs bunk room is tiny and the air conditioner above the top bunk was noisy. However, for my 15 year old and 11 year old boys it was fine and they were happy to have their own space. The air conditioning in the bedrooms is amazing. The living space is un-air conditioned but has wall of windows that completely open up creating nice cross breeze. It's a short walk to the beach area where we snorkeled, watched iguanas, took photos and enjoyed the beautiful, peaceful beaches. We swam in the pool daily and the kids hung out in the hammocks. It was sublime. When we moved to an all-inclusive on Playa Mujeres and was miserable there, we called Ron, to see if we could come back "home" to Casa Zama. Unfortunately for us, there were other guests. We highly recommend Casa Zama and the services Ron has set up to make your vacation perfect.
