Casa Vidrio de Mar (Sea Glass House) is a beautiful, relaxing oceanfront home on the Caribbean side of Isla Mujeres, Mexico. This friendly, safe and scenic five mile long island off the coast of Cancun, has preserved the beauty and charm of a Mexican fishing village.
Enjoy the turquoise hues of the Caribbean, a wonderful oceanfront pool and a sandy beach right outside your door. The rooftop palapa offers views of the sunrise over the Caribbean and sunsets over Cancun Bay.
Casa Vidrio de Mar is located right on the ocean just outside of town. It’s a short 15-minute walk or brief taxi ride to spectacular North Beach and the downtown area (Centro) with its great places to eat, shop and people watch. Hidalgo Street is the place for night life and a multitude restaurants. There is a new large Supermarket (Chedraui) a 10-minute walk from the house. The house is on the edge of the Colonia Metorologica, where you find lots of small shops and restaurants. The local bus stops right outside the house every 15 minutes or so. For 5 pesos (40 cents) you can get to North Beach, or have an entire tour of the island! We also have off street parking if you decide to rent a golf cart.
The beach in front of Casa Vidrio de Mar is a mixture of limestone, coral and white sand. It’s ideal for beach combing, sea glass hunting, exploring its tidal pools or just watching the Caribbean waves roll in.
During the months of July and August sea turtles lay their eggs on our beach and can be watched at night from the patio.
Between June and August you can have a once in a lifetime experience to swim with the 30 to 40 foot whale sharks during their migration. Isla Mujeres is a special place where the waters of the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico merge off the coast of this island and as many as 400 Whale Sharks visit during the peak of their feeding.
Our house manager can arrange for a personal chef, snorkeling, scuba diving, whale shark tours, trips to many area attractions and anything else you may need.
Casa Vidrio de Mar is affordable home, suited for family vacations, a getaway with friends, or a romantic escape.

THE BEST HOUSE ON THE ISLAND!!
Amazing house, this is our 5th time staying and we won’t stay anywhere else because it’s perfect!! Best location, beautiful beachfront, house is beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and amazing views. We’d give this place 10 stars if we could!!!!
Well managed. Beautiful location.
I would definitely stay here again. They had everything we needed and the closeness to the water was wonderful.
Lovely setting, specatacular view.
We had a great time at this property. The view was spectacular, the pool was so much fun, and the amenities were great. The beach was wonderful for shell collecting. The couch was a challenge, however, and one of the toilets didn't flush. Unfortunately the phone wasn't working either so we couldn't report it. All in all though, I would give it an A-.
Susan, So sorry about the phone and the sofa. Both have been replaced for your next visit.
Nice house great location!
We love Isla and this was s perfect place to stay
Lovely home GREAT VIEW!!
There were 3 couples using the house March 10-17 2018. The view of the Caribbean sea was magnificent! The sight and sounds of the waves was AWESOME! The next door neighbor was very friendly and offered recommendations on where to eat.
There were only a couple of instances during our stay. One was the day the pool man arrived something happened and we had no water in the house. Luckily he was still there and I told him and he fixed it right away. :)
The other is the couch in the living room needs to be replaced. It was not usable. :( We brought in one of the patio chairs to use in the living room.
Other than the couch everything was as described. We would return to this house again for another splendid time on Isla Mujares!!
Thank you Skip & Dianne for letting us use your home!

so sorry about the problem with the water I'm glad Oscar was able to get things working for you.We have been trying to get the sofa replaced, but it's been a little challenging trying to coordinate things between the property manager on Isla and the stores in Cancun. glad you figured out a solution.
so glad you loved the house.
Perfection in Paradise
We spent a week at Casa Vidrio de Mar in February and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. We had initially booked another house on the island for our family, and when the owner cancelled on us with only a month to go before our trip, we panicked, but then stumbled upon this house which had just come available. We are so glad it worked out this way, as Casa Vidrio de Mar was the ideal house for us. The location is fabulous - close to town, but far enough away from the hubbub and well situated to explore all of the island, including some wonderful restaurants very nearby. The beds were extremely comfortable and the air conditioning worked very well. The kitchen was well stocked, and we appreciated the endless supply of purified drinking water. Our favorite thing about the house, though, has to be the back yard! It opens right out onto the Caribbean. I could sit on the deck and watch the waves all day (if there weren't so many other great ways to spend a day on Isla Mujeres). Thank you Skip and Diane for making your home available to us. We will most definitely be back!
