About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

As you cross the threshold you are welcomed by the serenity of a tropical oasis. Palm trees surround the oversized POOL crowned by a 10 person SOAKER TUB. Glass sliding doors unite the private exterior garden with the interior space. The natural, locally cut lime stone floors and louvered doors made of tropical Tzalam hardwood introduce you to an atmosphere of the Mexican Caribbean. The bedroom balcony winds around the upper floor overlooking the Pool and tropical vegetation. There are original paintings and sculptures throughout the Villa. The shaded third floor roof terrace and the observation deck offer spectacular 360 degree views of the Bay of Cancun, the Caribbean Sea, and the magnificent tropical sun sets.

Forget about your car, walk, hop on a bicycle, drive a scooter or a golf cart. The island is only five miles long and still retains the flavor and charm of a Mexican fishing village. Surrounded by the finest white corral sand and the blue-green Caribbean sea one can enjoy world class deep sea fishing, excellent diving and snorkeling . The island is friendly, safe and scenic. Isla Mujeres offers many activities to fill your days. Along with exploring the famous North Beach, scuba diving the sleeping shark caves, snorkeling near Garafon reef, you can swim with dolphins, whales or sharks, visit the Turtle Farm and delight in these magnificent creatures! There are art galleries to visit, workshops to attend, massages to have, shops to browse through, tours to nearby wonders and beautiful beaches to enjoy. Isla has something for everyone! The restaurants on Isla Mujeres are excellent. Discover Mexican, Caribbean, International and Yucatan cuisine.

Enjoy the intimate privacy of an architecturally stunning Mexican Villa, Casa Neza ideally situated next door to the island’s resort marina. This Villa offers an artistic setting that delights the eyes and the soul with Zen inspired architectural detail and an interior decorated with interesting Caribbean art. Pamper yourself with resort spa treatments, pool side dining, tennis games and deep sea fishing all available to you at the resort marina steps from your front door upon acquiring a day pass. Delightful night scene with rock, jazz, and Latin music in the numerous bars and restaurants on the downtown strip.

About Maria Carmen Nahuat Lara

Heidi from Austria and Laurence from Canada are immigrants of Mexico. They fell in love with the country and its people. When not living and working in Mexico City they are sailing the Caribbean aboard their sailing vessel 'Don Quijote'.

Maria Carmen Nahuat Lara purchased this villa in 2006

Why Maria Carmen Nahuat Lara chose Colonia Electricista

We have enjoyed the charm of isla mujeres for years, especially how the islanders have preserved and protected their culture. The island beaches and turquoise sea are simply unmatched in the Caribbean.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Neza's 40 foot by 12 foot private swimming pool, ´10 person soaker tub, 12 foot perimeter privacy walls, ecclectic architecture and the benifits of the 5 star marina next door all make it an exceptional vacation choice.

I checked lots of rentals in Isla, but kept coming back to Casa Neza.

Wow am I glad I did! The feel of your own oasis is evident from first entering the secure gate. Open up the large south facing patio windows and you basically have a swimming pool in your living room! The fully equipped kitchen allowed us preparation and dinning at our own leisurely pace. Close to very good authentic Mexican restaurants, a new grocery/supermarket, and only a short cart ride to the hustle and bustle of Playa Norte...the main beach. We did rent a golf cart, and may I recommend one with four forward facing seats, which we were able to park within Casa Neza's perimeter walls.

A surprise visit from Lorenzo and Heidi, the owners, was an unexpected treat.

This down to earth couple are often in the area or will have a local assist you in anything you need. They happened to bring a new mattress for our one bed!(not that it was really needed)

The pool was checked daily and the cleaning service with fresh towels every other day.

I just can't say enough about the place. If you are looking to be a bit off the beaten track in your own piece of paradise, then book Casa Neza, you won't be disappointed.

Couldn't Be Better!

  • 5 of 5

Mu husband and I recently stayed at Casa Neza for a week and it was the perfect rental for us!

The home was more than we needed with 2 bedrooms and 3 full baths but we decided to spoil ourselves and we're glad we did.

We enjoyed the indoor outdoor feel of all the rooms and we loved the total privacy it offered us.

We spent our mornings (and many evenings) on the roof top enjoying the views and as the sun got higher we relaxed by the pool.

As much as we enjoy the North beach and various beach clubs on the Island, we found ourselves wanting to get back to the privacy of the house!

It was fully equipped with everything we needed and the only thing we would have appreciated having is a couple of beach chairs to take to the North beach for an hour or 2 a day.

We did rent a golf cart for the week which I would highly recommend. It allowed us to run to the store, get out and about each day for a bit without having to worry about cabs and to go into town or the Colonias for dinner

I'm sure the home would be fabulous for a family as well or even 2 couples but we were quite happy to have it all to ourselves :)

We can't imagine a more perfect place for us and we look forward to going back!

Wonderful house, you won't be disappointed!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with another couple and were blown away by how beautiful the house is in person. It is very spacious and has everything you need, I can't say enough good things about the place and Fernando as well. Everything in the description was present, the only problem we had during our week stay was that the jacuzzi was not hot at all - only a minor problem compared to everything else.

I would recommend renting a golf cart for your stay since it is away from downtown, but a short cab ride would work or about a 20 minute walk. It felt very safe with the high walls, even though the island has a safe feel anyways.

I would highly recommend this to anyone and can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay at Casa Neza and at Isla Mujeres. Picking up your suggestion we have now installed a heater for the jacuzzi. Jennifer, we would love to welcome you and your guests back to Casa Neza. And we extend an invitation to everyone to live the Casa Neza/Isla Mujeres experience! Heidi & Laurence

Beautiful property in a perfect family location

  • 5 of 5

Agree with many of the other reviews here that this is a unique, and really lovely way to experience Isla Mujeres. The art is unique and a real treat to have original custom framed pieces in every room. It's very secure and safe -- and if you rent a golf cart, super easy to get around. The Green Verde across the street had amazing food and great breakfasts to go. The biggest grocery store on the island, Chedraui, was an easy 2-3 block walk. We were greeted by Carmen who was super helpful. I thought I left the phone on the ferry initially, and she immediately leapt into action to help (phone turned up, but it was nice to see them be so responsive). Her helper also gave us a free trip back to the Ferry on Easter Sunday very early in the AM to make our flight, since we were worried about getting a taxi on the holiday. Only minor creature-comfort-y thing is that the description mentioned a mid-week cleaning and that was not the case, so I might suggest taking that off the description. When we texted to inquire on Thursday, they did bring fresh towels. A minor glitch, not worth a rating ding. It's really a lovely property and we had an amazing week. Would definitely recommend!

Quiet location, but easy access to either end of the island

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, in a quiet neighboorhood, just off the main road enough to not be too far to easily catch a cab. Great cafe a block away, rooftop sunsets were great, the house is run on solar power and solar water heater. Appreciate how well they've incorporated in the modern features.

Perfect spot for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed everything about Casa Neza. Three levels to enjoy your morning coffee or an evening bottle of wine. The pool was perfect, morning/afternoon sun, and then the sun would hit the patio until it went down. We felt very safe with the high walls and the ability to lock the cart up too. Air conditioning worked great in each bedroom and living area. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need and more. We walked to Chedraui for groceries, to the corner store for ice and ice cream, the Isla Brewery, the ball game on Sunday and then to SesoLocos and Green Verde for lunch/dinner. Perfect location!

Only a couple thinks that need repair, but would not give a bad review for these reasons.

The one sliding door would not lock.

The safe was locked and we were unable to use it.

A few lights didn’t work.

The laundry room was locked, it would have been handy if we could have used it, but it’s okay.

We could’ve called someone about these things I’m sure, but it didn’t bother our vacation at all.

Great place to rent, you will not be disappointed.

My daughter, 2 year old grandson and I stayed here over the fourth of July holiday! Loved the home. It had everything we needed to make our stay perfect. The only down's not "tottler" friendly. But we were aware of this before our stay, and were willing to deal with it. On the flip side, the fence gives the home a lot of privacy. As two women traveling with a young child, we felt very safe inside the court yard. We will be back!
