Villa at Quinta Ixchel in Sac Bajo

Bedrooms 1
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 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.

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!

Katy and Dave, Thanks so much for making our stay at the Villa so enjoyable. We certainly would like to come back again! The location was perfect to enjoy the pool, ocean, running, lounging, sunsets and beach walks. The property was spot on for how it was described. The House is located in a quiet area of the island, but just minutes away from restaurants and other small shops. We really enjoyed having a golf cart to move around on the island. Many great areas to explore and enjoy! Be sure to go to the Southern tip of the island. The views and the landscape are spectacular!

A shout out to Poli…He is a great caretaker and we enjoyed talking with him and also working with him on getting the Golf Cart for us.

Great for a romantic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Quinta Ixchel villa for our honeymoon and it couldn't have been more perfect. It was very comfortable, had a kitchen, private pool and beach, and private garden. The groundskeepers were very kind and Dave was great as well! We cannot wait to return!

Paradise found!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at three different properties on Isla Mujeres over the past few years but Villa at Quinta Ixchel was by far our favorite. We absolutely loved the private pool and beach area. Dave was a gracious host, Poli was a wonderful caretaker and both went above and beyond to accommodate during our stay. Communication beforehand with Katy was spot on and responsive. We look forward to returning!

It doesn't get better than this!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been vacationing in Mexico for more than 30 years and while we usually skip around searching for the next great place, we have rented the Villa at Quinta Ixchel three years in a row and will be returning in January of 2017 for vacation number four!! If you are looking for a private hideaway that provides solitude and tranquility; this is the place. This property has a beautiful private pool, a white sugar sand beach with gently swaying palm trees and the calm aqua waters of the Mexican Caribean. The villa is surrounded by tropical gardens that are meticulously tended and walled for privacy. The gates are locked overnight and we have always felt very safe here. The palapa by the pool provides a shady location for reading, dining al fresco or gazing at the pool in one direction and the ocean in the other. The villa is spotlessly clean with gorgeous creamy tile floors, a comfy bed, a great walk in shower and two walls of glass looking out at the pool and the garden. The kitchen is perfect for preparing breakfast and lunch poolside but don't miss out on dinner at one of the many delicious restaurants close by! We rent a golf cart for our entire stay which allows us to explore, shop or dine any where on the island in minutes however, we are always tempted to never leave the property during our stay because it is so amazing! Katy is wonderful to work with for reservations or getting questions answered and is always quick with a response. We are literally counting the days until we return!!
