Overview

About the property

Located Mid-Island, Casa Flores provides the ultimate Isla Mujeres experience. Enjoy the tropical gardens while sitting on the main garden lanai, overlooking your private courtyard pool.

Relax in a hammock on the third story terrace as you swing gently watching the spectacular Isla Sunset.

Sip your morning coffee from the second floor bedroom terrace as the spectacular orange sun rises over the Caribbean.

Isla Mujeres is known for its quaint, non-hectic, calming atmosphere. Casa Flores offers four separate terraces on three levels to take in all the views Isla as to offer.

Casa Flores offers Ocean Views, yet is only a 45 peso cab ride to downtown, where you can enjoy the shops, restaurants and nightlife. If you prefer renting a golf cart, you will be secure in knowing you can park it inside the private gate or directly on the street outside the front gate.

Walk outside your private Hacienda to experience the many local flavors, venders and people of Isla Mujeres. Located in the ideal setting for experiencing all that Isla has to offer, Casa Flores will make your vacation a truly memorable experience.

We can help you set up any and all activities you wish to experience during your stay.

About Brenda Lamonica

Brian and Brenda have been traveling to Isla since 2001. Brenda originally traveled on a 'girls' trip and then decided to let Brian in on her secret. Being in the construction business back in Minnesota, we decided to spend our Winters on Isla. We have made life long friendships with so many people on Isla.

We purchased Casa Flores in June of 2012 and decided to share our piece of paradise with others. We would love to help you make your vacation the best ever!

Brenda Lamonica purchased this house in 2012

Why Brenda Lamonica chose Isla Mujeres

We fell in love with Isla because of the people, the atmosphere and the laid back vibe. We bought Casa Flores after many years of searching for the 'right' place. The privacy, yet central Island location made it the perfect Isla home.

What makes this house unique

Four seperate terraces for viewing every angle of the ocean and Isla and the private gardens and pool make Casa Flores the Perfect Vacation Retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Brian and Brenda, not only do you have the greatest Casa on the island, but your hospitality was outstanding! This was my first vacation to Isla and Mexico. Your knowledge of the island made me feel so safe and comfortable. There is no way I would have experienced all that I did without you guys. Thanks for the memories. Meeting all the locals you guys know made this place something special.

Best. Vacation. Ever.

  • 5 of 5

Someone needs to choke the rooster, but other than that guy, the house, the people, the location, the water, the white sand, everything is just perfect. We have been to Isla many times, and we will make every effort to stay at Casa Flores the next time we’re back-just excellent!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a great vacation on Isla with my wife and teenage daughters. Brenda is a great host and was always available to answer any questions about Isla. She even arranged for a golf cart on arrival. The house is beautiful and very well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. We spent most of the time at the house enjoying the many outdoor areas, especially the courtyard pool area. The courtyard is private and relaxing, and the gardens around the pool are beautiful. The table in the shade is a perfect spot for breakfast and evening drinks. We bought pastries every afternoon from one of the street vendors that passed by and enjoyed them for breakfast the next day. There are several great restaurants within walking distance or a short golf cart drive away. We enjoyed restaurants geared towards tourists and as well as ones that mostly served locals. The food on Isla is great. We loved exploring the local neighborhoods around the house by golf cart. If you are looking for a vacation that is not your typical resort or hotel this house is perfect. I highly recommend this house. Thanks Brenda (and Buddy). We will be back!!

Great Location, Comfortable House and Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

An important part of any trip is the preparation and planning and that is an area where Brenda and Brian made our trip easy and stress free.

No matter what question we had not only about Casa Flores but anything about Isla Mujeres, there was always a response from Brian and Brenda within a day or so with not only the answer to the question but also other useful suggestions and information. Brian and Brenda even arranged a very affordable golf cart rental for us.

During our stay, both Brenda and Brian went out of their way to ensure that there was nothing that we needed and also provided some great suggestions of places to see or places to eat. They also respect their guests privacy.

It is obvious that both Brian and Brenda are dedicated to ensuring all of their guests have a comfortable and enjoyable experience on Isla Mujeres.

Casa Flores is located in a residential area of Isla Mujeres and allows you to experience more than you could at a resort or hotel. Every morning you can buy fresh made juice, tortillas or sweet breads from a number of local vendors. You quickly learn what they are selling by the honking of the horn.

Casa Flores is a beautiful place and is spacious and comfortable, the beds are very comfortable and both bedrooms are a very good size.

There are 3 separate deck/patio ares to relax and we really enjoyed the top deck for our evening cocktail hours.

The kitchen is well equipped and we were able to cook full dinners including roasting a chicken one night for dinner.

We would highly recommend Casa Flores to anyone that wants to have an exceptional holiday and truly experience an authentic Mexican experience.

Thank you Brian, Brenda, Buddy and Hector for a fantastic week.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at Casa Flores for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it! Brenda and Brian were perfect hosts and extremely helpful. The house is just like the pictures and the third floor terrace was quite peaceful in the evenings. The beds were comfortable and everything we needed was there. We will definitely go back and would recommend this home to everyone!

the sweet spot!

  • 5 of 5

my husband and i just returned from a weeklong stay at brenda and brian's "casa flores". having never been to isla before, we found that the location allowed for many authentic experiences that would not have been possible if we were at a resort or private villa on the beach. everyday, vendors in carts announced their offerings: fresh cheese, orange juice, sweet bread for sale while children joyfully played games in the street (alongside dogs, roosters and cats) and steps away, we bought fresh tortillas, a couple of eggs, and milk at the corner store for breakfast. having rented a golf cart, we spent many days relaxing on playa norte, discovering the southern end and eating delicious food everywhere we stopped! most importantly, brenda and brian are the perfect hosts. they will do anything to help guests feel comfy be it, suggest places to eat, snorkle, swim, or rent golf carts. their hospitality is sincerely generous yet, they will leave you alone if so desired. oh yes, can't forget about "buddy", the lamonica's 7 year old pug or "hector" the (very shy) resident iguana. muchas gracias otra tiempo, brenda and brian!
