About Ashley Wilkens

Todd & I are blessed with 4 kids (I can't call them children anymore) Our love for Isla Mujeres back in 2003 when we decided to take a spur-of-the-moment day trip to Isla from Cancun… like the majority of people have do. It took us over an hour to get to Isla via a small fishing boat back then.. now it is only a quick 20 minute ferry ride on a fancy boat now.. but you feel like you are in a totally different world from the hustle & bustle of Cancun.. YIKES! Little did we know the impact that Isla Mujeres would have on us! I remember the feeling I had when I first stepped off the boat the very 1st trip to the island...it's so hard to "explain" to people what Isla is like.. but there is something very special and magical about Isla that has stolen my heart for over 15 years & still have that feeling every time that I arrive on the island. Our family fell in love with the calm, crystal clear warm Caribbean beaches, LOVE the simplicity of the island in general & daily island living (slip into "manana mode", the local isleños are so welcoming every time I see them, wonderful community & family values, enjoying traditional Mexican dishes & the freshest seafood you will ever put in your mouth, and it's so safe (it's like it's very own country... away from Mexico's bad reputation) The island has a huge Navy base on the island & I am down there all the time without my husband (he still has his job in the states) & I have NEVER EVER felt unsafe.. I actually feel safer in Isla than here in the states. We were married in Isla Mujeres on August 1, 2004, which is exactly 1 year from our casual day trip that would affect & change our lives forever. We had a beautiful sunset beach wedding ceremony at Zoetry Villa Rolandi Hotel with a traditional mariachi band & lots of tequila. We come home to Isla many times each year & have made some truly wonderful friends as well.. We hope you enjoy the island and our home as much as we do! KEEP IT SIMPLE ~ Life is way to short not to ~

Ashley Wilkens purchased this House in 2014

Why Ashley Wilkens chose Isla Mujeres

We were driving around the island on one of our recent trips & and noticed that Casa Mar Azul was available for purchase.. we really liked the location of our home, privacy and it's in the best location on the island..(but there isn't a 'bad' location in Isla Mujeres tho)..we toured the home and immediately fell in love with the spectacular views that can be seen from every room in the house.. and in my personal opinion..offers the most spectacular sunsets from the rooftop on the whole island..Our thoughts..'Here we go again.. buying 'another' slice of paradise...' Life is good and we are truly blessed to own this beautiful home and be able to share with others when we are not on the island..

What makes this House unique

You truly feel 'away from it all' and our home is the ultimate place to relax, renew and return home rejuvenated. And always tell yourself to 'Always live like you are on vacation'

                                                                      The house with everything we were looking for in our vacation. The pool was great for our small children that are not great swimmers. The beds were comfortable and every room was spacious. The only small space is the kitchen. We rented a golf course while we were there and were able to get around comfortably. We liked being away from the town center as it made it more peaceful. The only downside was that the food restaurant “the joint” has live music and can be heard (at times their talent was questionable). We tended to stream our own music if the music from the joint was not good. The house manager and housekeeper, Stacy and Claudia were awesome. Everything we asked for assistance was met with quick efficiency.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Hi Nerina and thank you so much for taking the time to write such a great review for our home.. I love the wonderful feedback. I always strive have you feel just like you are at home.. rather than “just a rental”, as this is our family residence and want you and your family to feel just like we do during your stay. I agree with you regarding the live music can be loud at times coming from The Joint.. but thankful it isn't frequent tho.. We would love to have you back for your next Isla trip..Thanks so much!

                                                                      Beautiful view!

                                                                      Just heading back to reality after staying in this beautiful home! We spent days sitting in or around the wonderful pool just looking at the beautiful water and the Cancun skyline!

                                                                      It was nice having maid service to provide clean towels and house keeping chores.

                                                                      The house is in such a quiet location, we never heard any road noise. American TV and good WiFi were nice perks! We loved the house and hope to be able to stay again!

                                                                      Killer views!

                                                                      We spent 4 nights in Casa Mar Azul with 4 couples. Plenty of space. We loved being across from The Joint as it was super easy to grab a drink or a quick bite. Monica, the house keeper, is fast and very sweet - don’t forget to leave her a tip before you depart!

                                                                      Nice, needs TLC

                                                                      Ray R.

                                                                      This property could use some improvements. Couple broken lawn chair, hot tub didn’t work, foliage along wall the pool wall was cut but never cleared up, one large stock pot, no sauce pots or large serving bowls, needs more silverware for larger groups. Sofa bed mattress was lumpy, put heavy sleepers there.

                                                                      All in all we enjoyed out stay. Monica was wonderful!

                                                                      Everything we expected, can't wait to return!

                                                                      JAY B.Lafayette, IN USA

                                                                      Went to Isla on a fishing trip with 2 other couples. I found Ashley's home and it was perfect with 3 master suites. Plenty of space, the home was quiet and private on the opposite end of the island. We rented golf carts to get all around the island. It's the perfect way to see everything. This is my 4th time on Isla and I've always felt very safe. All the locals are wonderful. Lots of bars and little restaurants all over the island. Venture out go to the beaches, snorkel, fish, or do nothing and just relax. Isla used to be a hidden secret, now it's well known for true island life.

                                                                      Ashley the owner answered all of our questions through text, email and over the phone. You can tell she respects her guests and wants you to enjoy your stay and have a great time. She was on the island while we were there and even stopped by one evening to say hello. Her assistant Stacy welcomed us on our way of arrival with fresh salsa, chips and guacamole. She took us through the property and gave us her cell phone if we needed anything during our stay. Monica the housekeeper cleaned each day and made the beds. This is a first for us renting through VRBO. It was included in the price, we just left a tip each day for the service.

                                                                      As others have said there are lots of stairs to navigate the 3 floors of the house. The only disappointment that we had was the hot tub was not working. It would have been nice to relax in it up on the top deck while watching sunsets or listening to music.

                                                                      If you're thinking of renting this property, you will not be disappointed. It has everything you need and the owner/staff are wonderful. We can't wait to return. Thanks for allowing us to share your home! Jay

This house did not disappoint, from the beautiful stairs to the welcoming pool and patio including open family areas all the way to each and every suite. Sunsets were perfect, garden tub on roof was so intimate we loved it. Gorgeous ocean view from every room!

                                                                      The decor is so beautifully done, wonderful housekeeper, located perfectly with many options of what to do!! I must say after reading some of the less than 5 star reviews, I am thinking some people are just unhappy to be unhappy.

                                                                      I would not change a single thing about our trip our accommodations, the owners, the amenities absolutely nothing!!! To come back from the beach to enjoy our private grill and pool, was awesome!!!!

                                                                      I have to say, there is no place we’d rather stay and we won’t! This is our new home away from home!!

                                                                      I now understand why booking when you can is necessary!!! Very high demand on this home as it seems to book fast!
