Casa De Katy -Vacation Home with Tropical Front and Back Yard

Bedrooms 1
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Casa de Katy house provides a unique, adults only, Mexican get-away, located two miles from downtown and from the most popular beach, Playa Norte. Enjoy the luscious tropical gardens in the front of the house as well as the private patio in the back of the house. This is one of the only smaller homes on the island that has a full front and back yard - great spaces for enjoying the outdoors. Most people get around via bicycles, taxis or golf carts. The house is located at the beginning of the safe and charming neighborhood, Salina Chica, where you will find a tennis court, basketball court, many local stores and grocery stores, fresh fruits and vegetables, all within walking distance. You can catch a taxi right in front of the house to go downtown and to the beach. The house is very private, yet just a 5 minute taxi ride from downtown where you will find all the shops, restaurants, bars and live music.

For a private and enchanting experience, the front yard and back yard are surrounded by walls that have beautiful lighting during the evening hours.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, Mini-Split Air Conditioning, Cable TV, living room and dining area. There is one bedroom with a queen size bed and a queen size bed in one end of the large living room area.

Guests staying at Casa de Katy have access to a heated, saltwater pool on the neighboring property, Isla Retreats. Our saltwater pool is only for guests staying at Isla Retreats and Casa de Katy. To keep the grounds quiet, safe and private, we do not allow use of the pool by people who are not staying at Isla Retreats or Casa de Katy. You can enjoy the sounds of the waterfall while sitting by the pool or under the palapa. The palapa and pool area are perfect for coffee and fresh orange juice in the morning, and cocktails in the evenings - or anytime!

The tranquility and privacy of an adults-only setting will provide an unforgettable "Home Away from Home" experience.

About The Owner

This house is owned by father and daughter, Dave and Katy Hochmayr

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Salinas

We like this location because it is close to town and to the beach, yet located at the beginning of Colonia Salina Chica for a more authentic Mexican experience.

What makes this house unique

For a very private and safe experience, the entire front yard and back yard are surrounded by nice cement walls that have beautiful lighting during the evening hours. There is a staircase leading to the roof of the house where you have a spectacular view of part of the island, the Caribbean side of the ocean, the airport, and Salina Chica. There is a convenience store across the street where you can buy pretty much anything you need. There is also a pharmacy, a video rental store, tennis and basketball courts, fresh squeezed juice and a fruit/vegetable market with in 2 blocks of the home.

Lovely oasis

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as represented in the photos. Beautiful grounds and lovely finishes and homey touches in Casa de Katy. Katy herself was a lovely host, as well as her dad. We had the whole property to ourselves at times. It was within walking distance to a number of restaurants, and we never had a problem flagging down a taxi when we wanted to go downtown for dinner. We did rent a golf cart for a number of days, which was fun and gives you a chance to explore more nooks and crannies of the island. Katy gave us lots of suggestions as to restaurants, and they were all great! There was an ice cream shop that we visited pretty much every night on our way home from wherever we had dinner -- that idea of cooking never happened, although there was a nice bbq poolside we could have used, and of course a full kitchen in our casa. We had a very relaxing vacation, and we would definitely return to this property again. Friendly people everywhere we went, as well as good food at reasonable prices. The transportation from the airport was well organized and easy, and the ferry ride is short and sweet, and also well organized. The new terminal at the Cancun airport is state of the art. Hope to return some day!!

Amazing Property with a tropical setting

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to the island and just love this house. It has everything you need. The owners of the home arranged for a golf cart for our use and it was at the house when we arrived from the ferry.

Would highly recommend this home. My husband and I will be back next year.

This place was a beautiful retreat in the heart of Isla de Mujeres. The location is off the tourist locales which my wife and I prefer. But It is only a short 5 minute drive to get anywhere you want on the island. The resorts rentals are new, clean, and amazing. The pool was my favorite. It has a waterfall!!! So well done and Katy is the best. Stay here if you can!

Perfect getaway house, perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Casa de Katy for five days, and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations. The house and grounds are beautiful, spacious, private and comfortable. There was a safe place to park our golf cart. For us, it was great to be away from the more touristy part of the island, and everything is a very quick drive away. Katy and her dad were incredible hosts. We had an emergency and had to go to a hospital on the mainland, and they went well above and beyond to help us out. They were also readily available and very friendly when we had questions. Would recommend Casa de Katy to anyone, and I look forward to going back sometime!

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

We were the fortunate family that were the very first to stay in the new condo's at Casa De Katy. There is not a single detail that Katy and her father Dave did not think of when designing this beautiful oasis. The grounds were lush, intimate, and clean. The pool and pool bar were awesome and we loved all of the little details in the landscape.

The location of the property was great for us as we were attending a wedding on the south end of the island but the north end was just a 10 minute golf cart ride away. We loved the restaurant, Mango's that was nearby and the grocery Chedraui was also close by.

It would be amazing to rent this entire property for a family reunion or with multiple couples giving each their own private space yet a beautiful outdoor area to socialize.

Thank you Katy and Dave for such a wonderful experience on your beautiful island. We would love to return to the Casa De Katy property in the future.
