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.

                                                              A little bit of paradise...


                                                              This was such a great experience from beginning to end.

                                                              Ease of making the reservation, the follow up from the staff to help sort out Travel details,

                                                              The greet staff...all make the business side of casa di musica hum!

                                                              Then there is the house!

                                                              Not enough words for this place. It’s magical is a start, but do not do it justice.

                                                              Casa di Musica is truly special.

                                                              Great location

                                                              We had a great honeymoon at this house. It is the perfect size for a couple. Location at the south end of the island, away from the busy Centro area was great. Rent a golf cart and you can get anywhere. Jo Ainlay, the co-owner was very helpful with lots of good suggestions and hospitality. Would stay here again.

                                                              Private, comfortable house with a lovely pool and a great view of the water

                                                              Dana W.Brentwood Bay

                                                              My husband and I really enjoyed our stay! The house was perfect for us. We appreciated the indoor/outdoor balance, comfortable bed and quirky bathrooms. Glass sliding doors keep out the wind but don't obstruct the view. The location near the south point is relatively quiet, with easy access to restaurants and stores by golf cart. Be sure to walk down to Punta Sir and watch the sunset at least once!


                                                              We truly had the best vacation we’ve ever shared. The house has the perfect Caribbean vibe. The view every morning was stunning! I would recommend this home to everyone... can’t wait to go back!

                                                              Great location!

                                                              Private home on quieter side on island with fantastic views of beautiful ocean. Able to walk along oceanfront directly across street. Indoor/outdoor living with great ocean breeze. House was equipped with everything you could need. Close to some attractions and great restaurants and only a golf cart or taxi ride to the north end of the island. Owners were very attentive and helpful. Had a great time!!
