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.
