About the property

Private 1 bedroom house & adjoining palapa offering indoor/outdoor living

The new owners have completely transformed Casa de Musica into a romantic unique, charming and private house located on Punta Sur with incredible ocean views. High-end furnishings with a boho chic feel, Casa de Musica offers you the chance to fully kick back and relax island style. The air conditioned main building provides an open seating area with an oversized sofa, TV and wifi that steps down to a large bedroom with a king size bed. The views of the ocean from here are stunning.

The master bathroom has an indoor shower and double vanity counter. A sliding door opens on to a wooden walkway which leads to a private gardened outdoor shower.

The fully equipped kitchen, under the beautiful grand semi-enclosed palapa has 4-sliding glass doors that open to the beautiful Caribbean breezes. The other side opens to a private garden patio. The kitchen has bar stool seating for 6, plus 2 fun swing chairs. The marble dining table and 2 over sized comfy lounge chairs makes the palapa the perfect hang.

Swim laps in the 58' x 7' pool facing the ocean or take it easy as you sunbathe and sip on a cocktail in the 11' x 11' shallow end. Catch the stunning sunrises or watch the shooting stars and listen to the crashing waves.

An alfresco powder room with a 2nd outdoor shower sits in the far corner of the palapa, and is easily accessible from the pool.

Feeling too relaxed? Stroll the Mayan Ruins looking out to sea at the southern most point of the island. A popular attraction with a restaurant and less than a 5 min walk away, as is the Garrafon Natural Reef Park, offering a range of recreational water activities. A fun way to venture out and explore all the amazing island has to offer is to rent a golf cart or scooter or take one of the many little red taxis running about the island. Enjoy the award winning beaches of Playa Norte with its cosmopolitan beach bars, restaurants and stretches of soft white sand and turquoise water. Hidalgo Street is a buzzing hive of activity with tourists shops, bars and restaurants so numerous that you'll never eat at the same place twice.

About Chuck and Jo Ainlay

Chuck's profession in the music business led him to London where he met his wife Jo at a famous recording studio. They met through their love of music and live in Nashville TN.

As seasoned travelers we are always up for an adventure of discovery. On one of our many travels we discovered Isla Mujeres and the aptly named Casa De Musica. It is our hope that you find this little gem of an island as enchanting as we do.

Perfect for Romance

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa De Musica for a one week visit in late September in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary. This place is so romantic and private; it was perfect for our anniversary get-away.

For a couple who likes the idea of indoor-outdoor living, this was the perfect place for us. We enjoyed cooking many meals in the kitchen while still enjoying the outdoors. Everything we needed to make a nice meal for two was there. The owners even provided an electric chopper so we bought fresh vegetables from the Mercado and easily made our own pico de gallo and guacamole which we snacked on the entire week. There was also a nice water cooler that dispensed clean, cold or hot water immediately which we used constantly.

We enjoyed watching the ocean from the pool everyday. We had plans to go to beach clubs several days but only ended up going a couple of times during our visit.

The outdoor showers were something new to us and we really ended up enjoying them as they are very private.

During the day we would open the bedroom sliders and the door to the bathroom and the entire house became outdoor living. No need for A/C as the ocean breezes always made it feel cool.

This property is so close to the beautiful sights overlooking Garrafon we would either walk or go by cart to watch the sunset many evenings.

The owners were always very quick to respond to any of our inquiries and were delightful to work with. We are looking for another visit to this property in the future.

Tropical Paradise!!!! 5 Star!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the best time at your tropical paradise on Isla Mujeres! We own several VRBO properties so our expectations were high. We wanted a house for just the two of us to have a romantic getaway and everything could not have been more PERFECT.

We were looking for a bungalow that was private for just the two of us. We did not want to be in a condo or duplex and bingo! We found your little gem. We loved laying on your "private beach" and swimming under the stars. The bed, the linens, everything was 5 Star all the way!

We had so much fun cooking in your palapa kitchen. The outdoor shower was the icing on the cake. We can go on and on.

The owners were so great with answering questions and believe me we had a lot of them. Everything was immaculate and so much attention to detail. The decor was so cool. Wish we could get that comfy couch in the states. The house is close to the south point which we loved. But getting Downtown was easy. We snorkeled at Playa Garafon which was just 5 minutes golf cart from the house. But one of our favorite things was our morning walks along the carribean.

We would highly recommend your home to our friends and family. We can't wait to return!

Thank you for sharing your home with us!
