It sleeps six but is most suitable for groups of four. The main bedrooms are on the ground floor, adjacent to the pool , and the upper floors have two open air dining terraces, spacious living room, guest bathroom, kitchen and very private roof top terrace with a Mayan wood shaded pergola. The villa enjoys wonderful views of sunrise over the Caribbean sea. Great attention to detail has been paid throughout the villa in order to make it a peaceful getaway. The decor is cool and calming and there are original artworks and fine linens to enhance your stay. Its your perfect Island retreat.

The location is quiet and somewhat remote, yet you are only minutes from the amenities of Garrafon Park, fine dining at superior restaurants or the luxuries of the Casa De Los Suenos Spa.

Casa De Mariposas is a true tropical getaway that can be all yours to enjoy with those you want to share it with.
Full kitchen with oven and stove, fridge freezer, microwave, coffee machine, blender, toaster, sandwich maker and crockery and cutlery for six.

Pool, Air conditioning.

Two flat screen televisions, two DVD players, DVD library, Stereo CD/Radio/MP3 system with CDs,WIFI Internet.

Hammock, fine linens, all towels provided, weekly maid service (additional on request - additional cost), chef (available on request - additional cost), hand made soaps and toiletries in all bathrooms.

Casa de Mariposas has an English speaking agent on the island to handle any requests and assist in booking excursions.

Within easy reach of Casa de Mariposas are fine snorkeling opportunities, the activities of Garrafon Park, scenic walks to the Mayan ruins and along the Caribbean coast.

There are several scuba dive centres on the island with daily trips to Manchones Reef, the Cave of the Sleeping Sharks and Cross of the Bay.

Bicycles are readily available to rent and are a great way to tour the island. For the less energetic the common form of transport is the golf cart - these are great fun and can be rented for $50 a day.
Area: Casa de Mariposas is located at the quiet and scenic south end of Isla Mujeres, a gem of an island in the Caribbean sea just a few miles by ferry from Cancun and the Yucatan mainland.

Originally a sacred site to the worship of the fertility Goddess Ixchel, there are still temple remains close to the villa.

Getting to Isla is easy with a fast ferry to the mainland and various transfer options from Cancun airport.

If you require we can arrange transfers for you at an additional cost.

The beaches of Isla have two different characters. The North and West beaches are shallow with white coral sand and very safe for bathing. The eastern coastline is more rugged with curling Caribbean swells and are ideal for walking and shelling.

Isla is known for it's laid back approach to life. Visitors to the island are independent and individual and making new friends is one of the joys of the island.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Michelle and I 'stumbled' upon Isla Mujeres in February of 2005. Well, it was 'love at first sight'. Upon our return to our home town of Madison, WI we began a search for our vacation home. Within a few weeks we returned with our 3 week daughter, Bella, and bought our Island home. Over the last few years we have become immersed in the wonderful culture of the island and made many new friends. We've become active with the La Gloria English school that helps local people learn functional English, to help them obtain better paying work and to improve their standard of living. Having Isla as a second home has become one of the most enjoyable aspects of our lives. We hope if you choose to share our home, you enjoy the Island as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Isla Mujeres, Q.R., Mexico:
Islas wonderful local people and their exceptional culture make this a wonderful place to spend our 'down time'. International cuisine and top notch local food offer so many choices for relaxing meals. Being a few steps from the ocean no matter where you are on Isla makes for a unique experience for ocean lovers.
