Casa Gemelos has the largest private pool on the island, with a 46 foot infinity edge facing the Caribbean Sea. The home also has a massive 60' covered terrace on the main level and the upstairs master suites have a palapa covered wrap around balcony. There is a hanging bed on this upper level balcony that is perfect for enjoying the ocean breezes and sounds of the crashing waves.
This property is ideal for couples traveling together, for family reunions, as a wedding venue, or for corporate retreats.
Our professional staff will provide daily maid and pool service. Judith and Roberto are very helpful, and want you to enjoy your vacation.

About Maureen McFadden
Casa Gemelos was built by two couples who are best friends. We live in Austin, Texas and have dinner at least three nights a week. Our goal is to retire on Isla Mujeres in about 8 years.
Maureen McFadden purchased this House in 2014
Why Maureen McFadden chose Isla Mujeres
We love Isla Mujeres. We have traveled up and down the Mexican Riviera looking for a place to build. Isla Mujeres became our spot!
What makes this House unique
The plan for the house was started with soap boxes stacked on top of each other. The final product exceeded our expectations. Listening to the sound of the waves on the patio or from the swinging beds on the balcony, is absolute heaven.

Cannot wait to enjoy Casa Gemelos again!!!!
WOW!! Best house on the Island!
This house was perfect for our crew! We enjoyed the views, the pool and hot tub. It was hard to even leave the house. The owners were the best part. Best house on the Island!
GORGEOUS home with the best view on the island! We were a group of 6 and all had our own clean and quiet quarters, including separate living room and kitchens. We were fortunate enough to stay there with the home owners who's hospitality exceeded all expectations. The infinity pool overlooks the ocean it is a dream! Would recommend to anyone. We are in love with Casa Gameos!
Beautiful, Relaxing, Adventurous, Fun!
Fantastic twin houses, each with 3 bedroom suites and kitchen/living area . . . 6 bedrooms total . . . connected by a palapa breezeway leading to a spectacular negative edge pool looking over the Caribbean.
We were with a group of 6 couples - we sat in the pool, hiked along the coast and to the Mayan ruins at Punta Sur, rode golf carts to many great restaurants & bars, did shopping site-seeing, snorkeling and listened to live music. Some friends did scuba diving or fishing excursions. The caretakers and all of the locals are so friendly.
We highly recommend it for families or groups of couples looking for a fun and uncrowded get-away!
Best Place EVER!!!
We just arrived home today after 14 days at Casa Gemelos!!!!! Oh my goodness what a wonderful Casa!!!! This is our second time to stay there and it was once again heavenly!!! Paradise for sure!!!! We have stayed at many homes on Isla, and none compare to Casa Gemelos!! Roberto and Judith, the caretakers, are wonderful and were very attentive to our needs. Maureen, the owner, was REALLY wonderful to work with!! For a few days the pool was so warm I could have floated in it all day long...and did!!!!! The owners provide everything needed for a tremendous time. The furnishings are lovely and the bathrooms are spa-like!! We ordered pizza from Italy Pizza!!! Oh my gosh!!! The cream cheese crust was over the top awesome...it is not too rich...it is PERFECT!!! A fun place that we found on this trip...a hidden jewel I would say, is Capitan Dulces. It is a restaurant/beach on the bay side almost across the island from Casa Gemelos. There are a few cross island roads so you can save a little time getting there. Capitan Dulces is eccentric and beautiful and has the BEST FISH CEVICHE we have ever had!!!!! They allow you to hang out on their lovely beach and order drinks and food. It is a must see...the art installation near the restrooms is quite amazing! Well, that is about it! Casa Gemelos will spoil you for sure and you will not want to stay any other place on Isla!!! Oh! One more thing the views of the south end of the island from Casa are stupendous!!!
Gorgeous property, amazing pool, wonderful hospitality!
We stayed on the North side of Casa Gemelos and had an absolutely wonderful experience! First off, location: the home itself is situated on the quiet end of the island, which was extremely peaceful and relaxing, but we were still within a 10-15 minute golf cart ride to downtown and North Beach, which was always a fun ride. There were many other restaurants close by, and many that were willing to deliver, so accessibility was never a problem. I would definitely recommend renting a golf cart for your stay, but the taxi service is also good if you'd rather not drive and they typically pick you up fairly quickly.
Second - accommodations: the infinity pool is unbelievable. The pictures are exactly as advertised and we used the pool EVERY day. The four year old we had with our group absolutely loved it, and since the ocean is a little dangerous to swim in on this side of the island (due to strong currents), we had the best of both worlds: a safe place to swim with an absolutely stunning view of the ocean. The main social room - a combination of living/dining/kitchen was beautiful. We cooked in the kitchen -- which was stocked with plenty of great equipment -- and it was very well laid out for large group cooking and meals. Also - you don't need to buy bottled water! We were pleasantly surprised when we showed up to learn that there is a large jug of filtered water (as well as several refills) available for our consumption. The rooms were all beautiful and equipped with A/C, with the gem being the master bedroom, which has a stunning view of the ocean, access to an upper, shaded deck with outdoor bed/hammock, and a jacuzzi.
Third - hospitality: Roberto and Judy (the daily caretakers) are wonderful people. They were always exceptionally courteous and accommodating, and even checked to ensure the baby travelling with us wasn't asleep before using any cleaning or gardening equipment that was loud. We were also lucky to share the property with the owners - Maureen and Colleen -- who stayed on the South side for half of our stay. They care a great deal about the property, were very gracious hosts (telling us about the best spots to eat at / visit, helping us with any concerns, even giving us a golf cart ride back to the ferry), and were just fun to be around!
We would definitely do a repeat trip here! This is a great place not only for families, but also a fun, swanky place to stay with a group of couples. Wonderful all-around!
