Villa at Quinta Ixchel in Sac Bajo

Bedrooms 1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 0 - 7 nights


About the property

Villa, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Located on the exclusive Sac Bajo Peninsula on Isla Mujeres, you will enjoy a private lovely vacation in a safe and friendly environment.

The Villa at Quinta Ixchel is set up to accommodate adult individual travelers or couples looking for a romantic get away. You'll find everything you need in this newly remodeled and delightfully decorated villa. Enjoy a full kitchen with granite countertops, a king-size bed, gas BBQ grill, USA Dish Satellite TV, iPod docking station and WiFi Internet - Your home away from home!

The main house of Quinta Ixchel is located on the same property next to the Villa. My father stays at the main house at times during the winter, but is rarely at the house. When he is there, you will find him to be very helpful for advice about the island. At the back of the property is where the caretaker and his wife live. They are wonderful people who you would only see when they are cleaning the pool, raking the beach or watering the plants.

It is located in the Sac Bajo neighborhood of the island just past the Turtle Farm, close to Zama Beach Club, Villa Rolandis and Dolphin Discovery. It is very easy to catch a taxi in front of the house for a short ride to town.

The Villa is equipped with two sets of sliding glass doors that open completely to the outside on both sides to expand your living experience. Under the private palapa, you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the pool and turquoise ocean, private beach and Cancun skyline. The villa is the perfect place for morning walks on the beach and faces west for beautiful sunsets.

If you love the ocean, this is an excellent chance to experience it. The views from the patios are remarkable and just a few steps away, your private beach and lounge chairs awaits you.

For safety and security, the Villa and pool are exclusively for our guests.

Known as a quiet fishing village full of Mexican charm, Isla Mujeres will take you away from the ordinary and fascinate you with its renowned white sandy beaches, flavorful cuisine and multitude of cultural events that will delight your senses.

Quiet, tranquil side of the island. We loved our stay.

  • 5 of 5

Isla Mujeres is a funky, fun island. Villa Ixchel was a small but comfortable villa. We loved the location and tranquility of the place. Owner Dave was great, recommended wonderful places to eat. We loved our stay, definitely returning!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to numerous countries using VRBO, always getting what we expected and being satisfied, but never going back to the same place as there are always more adventures awaiting. That is until now. Isla Mujeres and Quinta Ixchel have become our special place and we hope to return many times. This was our second visit - and the first time we have gone to familiar territory which was actually really nice! With Dave and Katy's recommendations we found more restaurants serving wonderful food. Don't miss the wonderful rooftop dining at Rosa Serena, a newly opened restaurant, Dave will give you directions.

You never know what you're going to find on the internet but this place was absolutely perfect! The view alone, from the comfort of your bedroom window was worth it for us!

It's beautiful little villa with friendly and helpful staff, a nice little beach a short walk across the yard, a private pool just a few steps from your door and a comfortable and clean little villa to relax in.

Special thank you to the awesome owners! Katy was so helpful giving us step by step instructions, from the moment we stepped off of the plane we felt confident and as prepared as we could be - so nice!

Dave gave us some very helpful recommendations for renting transportation, eating out and where to get some good deals on snorkeling! Muchos gracias to you both!!!

We will be back soon!

Simply the best on Isla Mujeres!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have recently returned from our fourth vacation stay at Quinta Ixchel and we have just reserved our fifth time for 2018! If you are seeking the ultimate relaxing vacation, this is the place. The villa is spotless and well appointed. When you look out in one direction you see your own private pool and beyond that a sugar sand beach with breathtaking sunset views. There is also a large palapa, poolside, for relaxing in the shade and enjoying the ocean breeze. When you look out of the villa in the other direction you see a tropical garden that is perfect for a morning stroll to start your day.

We love this fabulous place!

The Perfect Vacation - Really

  • 5 of 5

Beginning before arrival, Katy was very helpful in setting up the reservation and trip. She was both timely and professional in her communications. On arrival, we were greeted by Poli, who is a caretaker on the property. He quickly checked us in and left us confident that anything we needed would be taken care of. Katy's dad Dave is a great and interesting fellow and the conversations were a nice addition to the week.

The property is immaculately tended. The pool area and beach are absolutely gorgeous and the views are the best on the island. This is the perfect place to come do nothing, which is what we did very successfully.

Perhaps the most special treat of the week was arranging for Poli's wife Gladys to cook for us. We highly recommend her Camarones de Ajo.

Good people all around here! A perfect week in a perfect place. Muchas Gracias Dave, Katy, Poli and Gladys!
