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!

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.

This is our fifth trip to Isla, first 4 trios we stayed at a great, small property on Sac Bajo. We choose Casa Perlita for its personal privacy, location and amenities, ie Pools, View, Kitchen, etc.
Everyone, Kati, Ana, Cleaning and Pool Staff where wonderful as is the property overall. Beautiful inside and out, clean and safe. We never felt uncomfortable. Alarm system and door locks all worked perfectly.
We will be back!
Casa Perlita was perfect. The location is on the south end of the Centro so it is walking distance to Playa Norte and all of the restaurants in the Centro, but it is quieter than being right in the middle of it all. It is just a few houses down from La Lomita, which is one of our favorite restaurants on the island and a quick 5-10 minute walk from the ferry.
The house is gorgeous, the first thing you see when you walk in is the infinity pool (one of two private plunge pools) overlooking the Caribbean Sea. Each bedroom has a view of the water, one the Caribbean and the other the Bay of Mujeres. Casa Perlita is on the thinnest part of the island, so you can see both bodies of water from the windows and the beautiful rooftop.
Kate was wonderful, reliable, helpful and responsive. The house was stocked with plenty of towels and kitchen equipment. The beds were very comfortable. We didn't need anything. We bought some food and liquor at the Chedraui (a bit of a long walk or a very short taxi ride) and later at the Super Aki by the square (much closer). Anything that was too far to talk was always a 70 pesos, or less, taxi ride from Casa Perlita. We felt completely safe on the island and at the house. We can't wait to come back.
Niki - wow! Thank you so very much for your kind words about Casa Perlita! I am so happy you loved the location. Please come back and visit soon! - KJ
Loved Casa Perlita!
We had an amazing stay at Casa Perlita. I cannot say enough about the wonderful staff for this property. This is our 3rd home rental on Isla, so I feel like we had a lot to compare it to! The house had amazing views from so many viewpoints, the dipping pools were clean and fun to use, and the location in town was fantastic. We had previously only stayed on the Southern end of the island - but I am now a downtown girl! The house is very well insulated from noise and the location on the Malecon made for a beautiful walk to and from town; we had a golf cart that we used as well. Towels, kitchen appliances, etc were all in very good shape. If we needed anything - the staff was available! This home is such a great deal for the price, and the rooms were even nicer than I had gleaned from the photographs online. Many thanks to the staff, managers, and owners of Casa Perlita! Katie and Ana - XOXO!!!!
Melinda - you are the best! Thank you so much for your great review. I am so glad you had a great time at Casa Perlita. Please come back soon! - Katie
Perfect for a getaway
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.
Thanks so much for staying at Casa Perlita! I'm sorry the weather didn't cooperate - Mother Nature can be fickle! You'll just have to come again soon and enjoy the heat! Gracias - KJ
Warm cozy & scenic home
The best vacation we have taken in years. The Island people were so friendly & helpful with everything. We will definitely plan another trip out to the Island & Casa Perlita home. Kudos to Marge (owner) & Katie ( management) for making this a wonderful hassle free vacation. Love Ya!! (:
Thanks for staying at Casa Perlita! I'm so happy to hear you had an amazing vacation. I'm sure it was much needed. Come back to the island soon! - KJ
We loved the Home. The location for us was perfect. Restaurants, Yoga and the beach were all within walking distance,The Home was well stocked with paper products, cleaning products,towels and even beach chairs.
Cynthia - Gracias for your kind words about Casa Perlita! I'm so glad you took advantage of the great location. Come back to paradise anytime! - KJ
This home is in a great location on the public malecon walkway accessed from front pool area. You can have your morning walk along the seafront all the way into the center of town where you will find all the restaurants and bars, and of course Playa Norte is at your fingertips!
