* BBQ grill on back porch by pool

*FULL kitchen with coffee maker, stove/oven, refrigerator, microwave, dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, pots, glasses, pans, (see photo)
*Convenience store 1.5 blocks away for drinks and also chips , soda and other little things.
*2 SAFE Restaurants within 2 blocks of house (meaning we have never gotten sick eating there)
* 1 SAFE Restaurant 5 blocks with good tender Steak (Thin cut because that's the best here)
* Many Restaurants Downtown that are SAFE just email me and I can send you the list.
* Socially and physically SAFE island that houses the MEXICAN NAVY and MEXICAN MARINES. They are awesome. They Drive the island 24/7 watching for problems.
* We see little children playing on our street and around the island after 8-9 at night. This is normal here, NOT IN AMERICA!!!
*Taxis from Casa to Centro (downtown), Casa to Playa Norte (North Beach)Approx 32 pesos (Tips are appreciated 5 pesos is plenty)
* All of our neighbors are very nice and helpful if you need help finding anything. (Must be good at Pictionary)
* we are a phone call or email or text message away if you need help also.
* REMEMBER THIS IS AN ISLAND. IT USED TO BE A JUNGLE, THERE ARE SMALL LIZARDS 1-3 inches long that you will see in the house on the walls periodically, no not hundreds but one or two. They are actually very cute. There is also SMALL ANTS 1/16 of an inch in size that you will see periodically in the kitchen area on the counter. They basically clean up little microscopic morsels of food that we humans miss or don't see. Sorry but it is like this all over the island. Unless you stay at the hotels where they spray weekly for the ants.
If these things scare you or make you weary just call us and we can calm your fears.
** Now for the upside we are normal Americans that work hard and will help with whatever possible when you are here. We want you to enjoy the island. We will give you locals Names and where to find them if you need help just in case we don't text or email you back within your time restraints.

**Maria's KanKin** is a little hidden Jewel, if you want a private Beach, this is the place. 100 pesos (8 USD) in purchases at the restaurant will give you Beach Access all day.. The restaurant owners (young husband and wife from Argentina) are awesome.

**Mango Cafe is awesome and about 3/4 of a mile from our house

They have great food and all the waiters speak english and spanish


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Fell in love with the island in 2011, We went back in 2013 and found a house we wanted.. The natives culture and their great attitudes toward life and living on little has captivated us.

Why the Owner Chose La Gloria, Isla Mujeres, Q.R., Mexico:
Our friends who own, The Shell House (Casa Caracol) (it is a a Must see) on Isla helped us choose this little Jewel of a Casa. It needed allot of tender loving care in the beginning but has matured nicely with the help of the skilled concrete workers. The Casa went from no windows in the back and no back door, with just rubble as a kitchen floor to a beautiful place to stay and relax. This is not a million dollar home but it is a nice quiet place to stay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
it is away from the downtown area, so,if you want to be left alone and not see allot of people you can just sit on the rooftop and listen and watch the Carribean waves roll in. But if you prefer to go downtown for awhile it is only 32 pesos ($2.50 USD) each way for a taxi. You can stay at home and cook, or you can walk two blocks and eat Authentic mexican food for a fair price, about $8 per person. A convenience store 1 1/2 blocks away for eggs to cook for breakfast or a little snack throughout the day. For Drinks and snacks just walk 1 1/2 blocks to the north, and there you go, beer for about $1.00 each, buy one or buy 6 (you just take how ever many you want out of the 6 pack..😃). If you walk two blocks to the west you can see Cancun on one side of the Island and the Carribean on the other. Golf carts are about $55USD per day. (You have to leave your Drivers license as security deposit). But they are sure worth it to ride around the island. We have never had a problem with getting our license back or them stealing the info on it. REMEMBER they know that tourism is their livelihood so they are all very nice to tourist. They respect us and of course we respect THEIR ISLAND. Rene and Rene restaurant downtown is a little place that can easily be missed, DONT MISS IT. Rene (the Awesome host) and Rene (the Amazing Cook, his wife) are so nice. (He will even teach you a little Spanish if you ask).
