Isla Mujeres - the 'Island of Women' is where you will enjoy sparkling clear, warm azure waters, beautiful white sandy beaches, gentle tropical breezes, spectacular views, ancient Mayan ruins and modern conveniences that is only a 15 minute ferry ride from Cancun - but worlds apart. Once a sleepy fishing village, Isla Mujeres has been “discovered” by tourists, but still maintains much of its small-town charm and laid-back attitude.

Welcome to Casa Mar Azul ~ "where your private paradise awaits.."

Casa Mar Azul is a luxurious custom home located in a very desirable area of Isla Mujeres - Punta Sur (South Point) is a very very exclusive, serene & upscale area on the island. Our home is surrounded by the Caribbean Ocean on 3 sides and located next to Garrafon National Park & Garrafon De Castilla Beach Club .. which is located steps from our front door. Perfect for a large family or as a holiday retreat and is ideally positioned to enjoy the proximity to beaches, bars and restaurants.

Our home features a beautiful infinity edge pool with color changing LED lighting, custom glow-in-the-dark feature and tempered glass around the edge for added safety..The pool creates a mirage of those beautiful “Caribbean blues". Casa Mar Azul is a very large & open living room and dining area with brand new large, oversized furniture (a little too comfortable too!) The living & dining area allows you to 'bring the outside - inside' with glass doors that fully open up completely, so you can feel the tropical breezes coming off the ocean. We have a full size outdoor grill for you to use as well. Newly built custom wood cabinets in the kitchen and Travertine flooring throughout our home with fully equipped deluxe kitchen, natural granite counter tops, Complimentary international phone line for you and your guests to use during your stay to keep in touch with loved ones, Dish satellite TV (with US channels), High speed WiFi internet throughout our home as well as a WiFi network booster, so no matter where you are in our home there will always be a strong signal.

Views from the roof are truly SPECTACULAR, and the BEST on the island..

Each home has their own PRIVATE pool with the same amenities as Mar Azul and each home offers lots of area for rooftop entertaining as well. The perfect location for large family vacations, Corporate retreats, weddings, group friend trips, etc. Family owned and operated (NOT a property management company) You will always deal directly with myself, the Homeowner.

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 15 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'

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to thank you for offering your house to the St. Anthony School Gala. Both of our families enjoyed our stay on Isla. Your house is beautiful, spacious and very comfortable and we look forward to getting back soon!

Gorgeous views, quality home, perfect for family/couples getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fantastic! I will get right down to the important stuff you might want to help you decide on this home.

Views/Amazing Home/Top Notch Cleanliness/ A+ Location/Quiet side of island

Hospitality and Responsiveness of owner and staff/Stellar!!!

A housekeeper (Monica) comes daily to make beds and do desired laundry (INCLUDED IN PRICE, tips appreciated)...a FIRST for me in a rental home on VRBO.

It's important to know this home has a fair amount of steps (3 levels). NOT a problem, just something to consider. There is a master suite just off the main level that has only about 4 steps into the bedroom so this is an option for elderly travelers with knee problems. (I ONLY point this out because my dad was recovering from knee surgery) Photos convey.

There is a beach just below which has snorkeling, snacks, beverage service, bathrooms and lounge chairs with umbrellas. It doesn't get overpopulated and it's just about $4/day for access.

The house manager, Stacy, went above and beyond to make sure we had everything for our arrival and was easily accessible throughout the week.

Ashley (homeowner) answered all questions promptly and was super helpful with all requests.

This is a great home for families, as well as couples who want to get away from it all and enjoy the charm and beauty of this amazing island. And get out and eat the food, not a bad meal all week!! Can't say enough about the hospitality of all!

Owner's Response: Where can I begin to say Thank you so much for all the kind words on our home ~ that means so much to me. We are so happy to hear that you and your family had such a perfect vacation and that you loved staying in our home as well. We always strive to make your vacation as laid back and stress free as possible. Isla is such an amazing little island that captures your hearts from the initial moment you step off the ferry... It is a such a pleasure for me to share our home with families such as yours and I really enjoyed that you were able to discover and enjoy Isla Mujeres for your perfect beach getaway ~ we look forward to sharing our home with you again next year! Thank you so much again, Aimee.

Beautiful Home & Great Service

  • 4 of 5

Ashley's home is very beautiful and spacious. It was very well kept while we were there since housekeeping was awesome and they tended to our needs with no complaint. The first day was cool because someone was there to make us guacamole to kick off the trip (it was so good). Initially, we almost cancelled as were concerned about an incident on one of the ferry's to Playa Del Carmen but Ashley assured us Isla Mujeres was safe. While no one can guarantee your safety especially when they are not there everything turned out fine. Isla Mujeres is ideal if you really don't plan on leaving the island because the ferry's and the taxi's back and forth become expensive over time. We had issues at times with the taxi's they recommended overcharging us to get to and from the port but we dealt with it and tried not to let it ruin our trip. After our trip, I texted the manager to thank her for everything for the weekend and she made a sarcastic comment about us being concerned about our safety on the island because of the ferry incident I mentioned prior to travel. While frustrating, I didn't even bother to respond as the trip was over at that point and yes while we were safe, no one should ever discredit how someone feels about being safe in another country. That wasn't customer service friendly but it's over now. Overall, the home is beautiful and great service. I have no desires to go back to Mexico again so I doubt I will stay here again.

Overall it was a good stay and will probably schedule another stay.

  • 4 of 5

There were some maintenance issues with both properties. There was no water the first day. Then the AC went out in the adjoining house. The staff was very courteous and was present when repairs were being made. Unfortunately I developed a serious bacterial infection while I was there so it is difficult for me to remember much other than that. However, we will be going back and will try to rent the same houses.

Owner's Response: Hi Donna. Welcome home. Glad you enjoyed your stay.. I am sorry that you got sick during your vacation.. In reference to the water issue you referenced at the house next door, but not at our home. We are blessed with the best staff and they are always so prompt in every situation.. gotta love living on the island..constant maintenance.. but is well worth it and we always stay on top of everything and/or stay ahead of everything. I hope you enjoyed the new rooftop entertaining area.. we just finished building it a month before you arrived. We would love to have you back for your next vacation. ~ Ashley

Spacious, clean, great location and view

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

  • 4 of 5

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!
