About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3.5+ Baths (Sleeps 6)

Casa Isla is 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.

The house is a masterpiece of shape, color, light and air. The main space is an open living room, dining room and kitchen which opens onto an outdoor dining room, living room and heated saltwater pool with terrace, hot tub, and palapita, all overlooking the ocean. Eighteen feet of glass panels in the living room 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 and en suite bathroom with walk in stone shower. All bedrooms and bathrooms have ocean views and are completely private. The infinity pool has a shallow shelf for lounge chairs and a hot tub for 10 people. A thatched palapita at the pool is great for enjoying cocktails at ocean's edge.

Casa Isla is a luxury oceanfront three bedroom, three and a half bath home beautifully furnished with a high level of quality and finishes. The master suite has an indoor tropical garden and a terrace which overlooks the pool, the cliff and the bay. There are two bedrooms on the second floor, each of which has its own bathroom, two queen beds and fabulous views. The house was completed in December, 2008

The climate is perfect for outdoor living and the house has over 1,500 square feet of outdoor living space which overlooks the ocean, including living room, dining room, pool terrace with palapa, and outdoor roof deck with 270 degrees ocean views. Relax and let the sound of the ocean and the Caribbean breezes soothe your soul.

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

Please Note: there are three Casa Isla kitties who live outside. All are healthy, sterilized, vaccinated, and treated for fleas. We would greatly appreciate it if you would put food and water out for them while you are at the house. Food is provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Isla is an absolute paradise, a million miles away from any cares and concerns of everyday life. Sitting in the indoor or outdoor living room or the outdoor dining room (or just taking a shower!), it is almost impossible to take one's eyes off the incredibly blue water. How can the color of the infinity pool match so perfectly? Short walks to the nearby eating places made everything especially easy. This is a marvelous and luxurious destination for relaxing and re-energizing.

Best house on the island!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Isla was an amazing experience to remember. You can't get a better view on the island anywhere else! The location is perfect, the south point is a quiet area away from the busy downtown tourist area, tucked away but still very accessible for your daily adventures.

The house is staffed for just about every area, Stacy the property manager was very prompt to respond to any question we had and Maria the maid was a sweetheart who came every morning to tidy up the place.

Each room in the house offers a view, a beautiful layout and a lot of space. There are so many relaxing areas of the house, we barely touched a couple of them. Our favorite place was out by the pool. I could stare at that view for days. It was so amazing to wake up and see the ocean from bed.

The house was very safe, we never felt uncomfortable at any point.

We took the recommendation from Kit to reserve scooters and a golf cart from DC Explorer. The service was great, they dropped the vehicles off upon our arrival and picked them up when we left too. I highly recommend renting your own so you can travel around the island. Each morning we either made breakfast and ate on the pool patio or we went to Mango Cafe on the way to downtown.

I am in love with this house!! Thank you to Kit and the house staff, we had an amazing time!

Very nice comfortable house.

Everything was very nice. The pool needed a little attention and pool staff came the day before and the day we left. Looked very nice for the next visitors. Really no complaints!

Island perfection

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Isla for a family Christmas. It is the perfect place to gather, relax and celebrate. The house is beautiful and luxurious, and the outdoor living space (pool, patio, dining area, lounge) is conducive to day- and night-time enjoyment. Our favorite activity was taking a short walk down to the southern tip of the island to explore the spectacular rocky shoreline and Mayan ruins and enjoy a tequila and fish platter at the little outdoor cafe. We had golf carts to visit restaurants and other attractions around the island.

Our hostess, Kit, was always responsive and helped us plan our trip, including information on transfers to the island and boat excursions. The property manager, Stacey, stocked the house with food before we arrived and even arranged to borrow a keyboard we requested for holiday music-making. The housekeeper, Maria, kept things spotless and provided delicious dinners when we wanted to eat in.

I wholeheartedly recommend Casa Isla.

WOW WOW WOW There are no words to describe this amazing getaway. First, Kit was a pleasure to work with and answered all our questions, and her on site manager was extremely helpful. Also her activity person, Alex, set us up with great local things to do...for example we loved our golf cart which was fast and worked perfectly. The most awesome thing was that the property description was actually an understatement...the views, location and overall relaxing, tranquil and gorgeous environment is indescribable! (we actually took the exact same photo with our feet in the picture) the local food way surpassed our expectations and the local people were very friendly. We highly recommend this home for honeymoon, family retreat or quite frankly any reason at all!!

Stunning home with excellent service

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this house to anyone going to Isla Mujeres! The home is as beautiful as the pictures, if not more so. There are also several people who ensure your stay is lovely (owner, house manager, housekeeper, gardener). You will feel spoiled! The house is located on the quieter side of the island, which was perfect for us. It is a quick golf cart ride to the beach, restaurants, and just about anything else on the island. I can't wait to go back!

Nearest Airport
18 Miles

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. Although the location is tranquil, there are several restaurants and local shops within walking distance. Beaches with snorkeling and sea kayaking are a five minute walk, but the view over the infinity pool to the ocean is so wonderful you may never want to leave the house!

Other Activities: Snorkeling with giant whale sharks, boating, fishing, scuba, shopping, swim with dolphins, sea kayaking, turtle farm.
