Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 - Caribbean Front House.

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.

Perfect vacation from beginning to end

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough wonderful things rewarding this property. From first walking in and being greeted by the lovely Kate. Too the magnificent view of the water. Three late night swims in the pristine clean pool and the list goes on.... tips. Have them arrange your shuttle and grocery shop for you. The island is small but the convenience is huge. I would recommend this property fully..

A Magical Rental on a Magical Island

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay. The house was clean and well stocked with every kitchen gadget you could think of. The TV had both AppleTV and Chromecast ( wasn't listed in the welcome booklet but it was a nice bonus for us ). There was a great selection of movies and books. The house was located very central to the island and far away from any serious tourist travel. The small pool and patio was perfect for relaxing and the view out the back was amazing. On our last day we had to help rescue a large sea turtle that fell between some rocks. That was quite and experience. The neighbors were great and so very friendly. There wasn't anything we didn't love about our vacation and we're counting the days until we can come back.

If you are looking for a nice quiet getaway that's golf-cart distance close to the action you will not regret renting and staying here.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

House was perfect location and well maintained. As many reviews noted, comfy beds, good water pressure, good a/c, plenty of purified water. No direct beach access from house but it's no big deal, just go out front door and walk around the side of the house and there you are! We put Netflix on a few times in the evening at the end of a busy day for our Grandson, but connection kept freezing up. No cleaning service available for a week stay - With sand in and out, it would have been nice to maybe have a cleaning once as there was not even a broom in the house available for us to sweep up. We took advantage of service available to have the house stocked with some groceries/alcohol before our arrival - it was money well spent. Bottom line: with the amazing views, hearing the waves and having the pool to dip in right on the beach, it was really pretty perfect. To top it off, we were there during nesting season for the turtles. They came every night we were there! It was truly amazing to see and all with a front row seat, right from our balcony!
