About the property

Experience the real Isla.

Guests at Casa Perlita have an all access pass to Isla. This single family home offers 2 large bedrooms – both with a king bed and balcony - 2 bathrooms – one master and one on the main floor, a rooftop seating area and plunge pool, an infinity plunge pool out front, and a full kitchen with glassware/pots and pans/kitchen utensils (no dishwasher though). There are flat screen tvs in both bedrooms and the living room. The home has great space and it offers 2 couples the right amount of privacy, but enough space to sleep 6 with the two additional couches in the living area. Cute, cozy and colorful, Casa Perlita is the perfect oceanfront house on Isla Mujeres.

Don't want to stay in the mega resorts on Playa Norte? Want to experience a vibrant and authentic island neighborhood? Want the true island experience? Come to Casa Perlita. It's located just on the outskirts of Centro (that means you can walk just into town!). Stunning ocean front (not a swimming beach) with direct private access to the Malecon. Guillermo the barracuda fisherman lives next door. Loncheria La Lomita is just down the street and the food is amazing. The Super Express grocery store is a quick walk from the house, and you can walk to the North Beach in 10 minutes - ok more like 15 if you stop to buy a few cold Sol along the way! Grab a drink, watch the golf carts cruise past, or the waves crash, your choice.

Casa Perlita has a rooftop patio area and plunge pool, so kick back and enjoy 360 degree views of the island with a margarita or two. We'll provide a great space for you to relax. Casa Perlita is a lovely place to get back to the basics.

As owners, we'll interact as little or as much as you'd like. Thinking about booking but have a few questions? Send an email or give us a call! Need something or have a question during your stay? Send an email, we're happy to help. We absolutely try our best to anticipate our guest's needs, but there are 7 billion people in the world and we may miss some. Please contact us during your stay to make something right. Just ask, we'll be happy to do our best to accommodate.

Want a home in a great neighborhood on an island in the Caribbean? Got it. Walking distance to Playa Norte and Hidalgo/downtown? Check. If you're doing things right you will see the same people over and over again during your stay. Stop, say hi, chat with them. They don't mind your broken Spanish if you don't mind their broken English. We believe traveling is about new experiences and meeting new people and Isla Mujeres is a great place for both.

Transportation-wise: Walk, rent a golf cart, take a cab (usually ~40-70 pesos). The island is not that big and you'll be able to get around pretty easily whichever way you choose. We recommend using CARM for airport transfers. They have local connections and are very responsive.

Other details about the home: We provide filtered water and plenty of bathroom towels for our guests. We have a guest book that has just about everything you need to know about the property. We have a cell phone in the home so you can make local calls. The pool fountain is on from late morning and runs through early afternoon. The pool cleaner comes twice a week. The wifi at the house is generally up and working, but sometimes there is slow connection. In case the wifi is out, call Mundaca to let them know. Many restaurants on the island offer Wifi, so you're sure to find some place to connect. We have a mid-stay housekeeping visit to refresh the home during guests' stays of 8 nights or more.

The home is professionally managed by a great team at Mundaca to ensure our guests are taken care of and have a wealth of information. Booking a great vacation rental is such an important thing (I've done it on Isla so many times!) I truly want guests to have a wonderful vacation. I hope you'll choose Casa Perlita for your island getaway!

Perfect for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

Although the weather didn't fully cooperate for our escape to the sun, we almost didn't care. Casa Perlita was a perfect haven--short walk to town, beautiful views, and a fantastic local eatery 5 minutes away by foot. Private, tasteful, relaxing.

Great location. Great rental experience.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. We rented a golf cart but it is walking distance to everything basically. The two bedroom unit was great for our family of four. Beautiful views(360 from rooftop) and great little dipping pools. The rental team was awesome to deal with and explained everything to us when we arrived.

About Katie Jarvi

We first stumbled upon Isla Mujeres on a daytrip from Cancun in 2008, and quickly realized how magical the island is. A few years later, Casa Perlita was purchased. I currently reside in St. Paul, Minnesota, and get down to the island multiple times per year. It is definitely a home away from home.

Katie Jarvi purchased this house in 2014

Why Katie Jarvi chose Centro - Supmza. 001

We bought Casa Perlita because of it's location to the water, to town, and to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. the house is just outside most of the hustle and bustle of the city center, but close enough to walk to everything. It is feet from the ocean, and is situated right on the malecon walkway that leads you up and down the Caribbean side of the island. Casa Perlita is a colorful, cute, and cozy beach house on one of the best islands in the world.

What makes this house unique

This house embodies is what I like to call "unassuming luxury." We are feet away from the incredible Caribbean ocean, and nestled just a few steps from the vibrant community of Isla. One of the best beaches in the world, Playa Norte, is just a quick walk down the street. Enjoy some time in the main level infinity pool, then head up to the roof to watch the amazing sunsets over the town.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Casa Perlita is AWESOME! It's located on the North side of island where there is much to do such as restaurants (try Olivia's...went there twice!) and bars and the beach. I liked the food much better on North side than South side. South side has its perks with the quietness and vastness; although, Casa Perlita's view of the ocean gave us the same affect. Sun will not be exposed over pool area all day so it's nice to head to the beach if you want the sun or stay at home in the shade and listen to the waves. We had absolutely everything we needed at the home. Beds are also super comfortable and huge. Already planning a trip back! ”
