Property description

Ideal vacation spot for honeymooners, couples seeking renewal or enjoying a special occasion, and also for those just desiring to get totally away from everything and commune with nature on this unique island, easily accessible to Cancun but a world away. With its wonderful spas, beautiful beaches, world class snorkling and diving, la Isla, as known to the locals, is a true Caribean, Mexican gem for the right couple.Our condo, is called Casa Encantada and is a charming retreat for those couples seeking privacy and simplicity. Not for those wishing to be glued to the TV. Without a golf cart or other conveyance such as a car, scooter, or bicycle (for the hardy) you will feel isolated, and depending on taxies is not recomended. However the pool is footseps off the patio, there is a good air conditioning system, and there is good securtiy at the building. There is a very nice view of the Yucatan from the unit.
On the island are many wonderful attractions including the Garrafon Park next door and the Mayan ruin with walking distance at Punta Sur, but relaxation is the most important feature of this location.
Our new, now well appointed facility provides an elegant setting in which to enjoy this unique location combining Mayan history, Mexican culture, Carribean waters, and a multicultural personality with wonderful people and exceptional experiences.
We are seeking couples who will enjoy our place and treat it with respect and care.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: Retired lawyer and retired social worker, Dyanne and I were married in 1994 and have been traveling to Mexico every year since then, often more than once. We have explored many resorts in many locations throughout the country and were most impressed by this island, a unique cultural and natural experience. We were also impressed by the amenities offered by Sotavento, together with its excellant location on this wonderful and beautiful island.

Why Isla Mujeres, Q.R., Mexico:
This place not only has a warm Mexican climate and warm Mexican people, but it has an intimacy combined with a history that makes it a compelling place to explore, either on a superficial level, as day trippers from Cancun can attest, but deeper as naturalists, divers, snorkelers, as those who sink deeper into the beaches, relaxation and beauty of the waters surrounding our location. Our unit in Sotavento is being finished and with its amenities, style and location is a uniquely desirable development. From the roof terrace, a common space upstairs, one can observe sunrise over the Caribbean Sea as well as the sunsets over Cancun that can be enjoyed from our unit. It provides seclusion and privicy, if not TV in English.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Lovely views, unique island, various forms of activities and relaxation. Spas, snorkeling, diving, beaches, culture, great food and drink, wonderful people and the thrill of driving a golf cart around a unique and beautiful island. Swim with whale sharks, visit uninhabited Contoy, shop relax and enjoy.
