About Yazmin Aguirre (Rental Manager)

Stephanie and Chadd have been visiting Mexico since our honeymoon in 1998 – over a dozen times. We focused on the southwest coast of Mexico but always loved the clear waters of the Caribbean such as the Yucatan Peninsula. The only thing missing from the Rivera Mayan coastline was the beautiful Mayan people who possess integrity, honesty, hospitality, and an inner beauty not found often in tourist areas. We stumbled upon Isla in June 2011 for my 40th birthday and fell in love with the slower pace and beautiful people. We met Chris Shannon through new friends at the soggy peso and the rest is history! The only difficulty in visiting the island now a few times per year is leaving our daughters home who also fell in love with Isla!

Spacious & Fabulous! Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

My group came to Isla for a wedding this April/May. Casa Nido de Gallo accommodated us with breathtaking views, a well-equipped kitchen and a wonderful location. The house has 3 spacious bedrooms and 5 bathrooms (including one outside!), plus a large living space both outdoors and indoors. It was very well air conditioned. The pool area was very beautiful though very windy every day (par for the course here). The pool was not heated but it was so hot outside that the cool water felt good. There was WiFi in the house though we found it didn't work in some of the upstairs bedrooms. Not a big deal.

We had a golf cart and could get to the North End of the island in 5 minuets or less. We walked it a few times too just for the exercise and got there in 15-20 minutes.

We drove to the South End several times, as well, in about 15 minutes by golf cart. There were also some really delicious restaurants (Mango's and Cafe Green Verde) extremely close to the house. The large grocery store was less than 5 minutes golf cart drive.

Email communication prior to arrival was very responsive and Kate (who met us when we got there to check us in) gave us very thorough information. We were even given a local cell phone to make local calls (taxis, food delivery, etc.) if needed - I thought this was a great bonus!

I can't think of anything the house is lacking. Overall, I can't recommend Casa Nido de Gallo enough!

The Perfect Island Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I had done a lot of searching prior to booking and Casa Nido Del Gallo checked all the boxes - privacy, nice pool, oceanfront views, spacious outdoor area, great location, beautiful interior, wifi and more. The house has 3 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Yes, 5! 3 full in each bedroom and 2 half. Very convenient if you're bringing a larger group. We felt very safe at night with the security system which is a great feature to have for peace of mind of new travelers to the island. The house is also equipped with safes if you need them.

When we arrived to the island, we jumped in our golf cart and, a quick 5 minute ride later, we arrived at the house. The house looked exactly like the photos and was easy to spot. I couldn't resist running straight to the back of the house to see that view. It was everything I had hoped it would be. Truly breathtaking. Kate greeted us a short minute later and showed us around the house. Beautiful from top to bottom. I had been in contact with Yazmin prior to our arrival and she stocked the fridge for a reasonable fee. I can't say how much we appreciated this after a long day of travel!! Thanks again Yazmin!

We did have one hiccup during our stay which was that on Day 3, the power unexpectedly went out at 8am. No running water, no lights, no air conditioning, no wifi. I called the maintenance gentleman, Isaac, right away. He seemed to know that the electricians were working on the lines that day but we hadn't gotten any prior notice of this. He said power would be back on for everyone around 2pm. Finally, an electrician came out and we had power again by 2:50pm. It was definitely a frustrating experience in the moment but I I also realize it was out of anyone's control as there seemed to be some sort of electrical short that occurred. Luckily, it wasn't an issue again and everything worked great from there on out.

If you're looking for restaurant recommendations, I highly recommend Mango's Cafe - delicious!! We also had a nice meal at JAX's - great views from the rooftop patio!

I hope we will be back to Isla soon. We would absolutely book this house again.

Beautiful home with a vibrant downtown within walking didtance

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with three master suites. The house was very comfortable and clean. You could easily walk into this amazing downtown with wonderful food and great people. We rented a golf cart to explore the island for a few days.

Perfect place to stay in Isla!

  • 5 of 5

I was a part of 3 couples that stayed at Nido del Gallo for 10 days in February. It's a beautiful new house with 3 bedrooms, each with en suite bathroom. The kitchen, living, and dining all form one big open space for eating, drinking, and hanging out. Large double sliders lead to a covered outdoor patio adjoining the outdoor, oceanfront patio. Great views of the ocean are had from well inside the house. Unlike most other houses on Isla that I have stayed in, the seating inside and outside at Nido del Gallo was plentiful and comfortable. We are already booked for next year!

We loved Casa Nido Del Gallo! The house was clean, comfortable and spacious. Our 2 younger granddaughters loved the pool and walking the beach looking for shells, coral and sea glass. We also had some resident iguanas we loved to watch. Kate and Yazmin were great to work with and explained everything. The house is close to town and with a golf cart close to everything! The information notebook was helpful, as I needed to see a doctor there. I called the one listed and he came to the house in 45 minutes! A great place to enjoy Isla Mujeres!

Beautiful house with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week at Casa Nido Del Gallo. The house is beautiful and the view is amazing! Yazmin and Kate from Mundaca were the best to work with both prior to the trip and after our arrival. We booked a golf cart through them as well as our airport transfers and everything went smoothly. This was our first trip to Isla Mujeres and we loved it. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time at the house as well as exploring the island. Many wonderful places to eat and amazing beaches and scenery throughout the island. We liked the location being mid island, a short golf ride to either end. The location of the home is very peaceful and quiet as well. The house is well equipped and we loved having 3 master bedrooms with private baths. A great vacation and we hope to come back to the island soon!
