About Rick Pattyn

We come from the Nelson area in the beautiful West Kootenays , British Columbia, Canada. We have been married 43 years and raised 3 fantastic daughters who have given us 6 wonderful grand children. Rick is a semi-retired Professional Log Home Builder and owns and operates 3 Vacation Rental Properties; I am a Patient Care Coordinator and working Registered Nurse in the Emergency Department at the Kootenay Lake Hospital, and I own and operate my own network marketing business. Once our children

left home we started to travel to sunny locations in order to shorten our Kootenay winters.

Rick Pattyn purchased this house in 2014

Why Rick Pattyn chose Isla Mujeres

We found Isla Mujeres quite by accident when we went on a Booze Cruise out of Cancun in 2000. It was supposed to be a day excursion but Rick and I wanted to see the island so we got permission to stay behind when the boat left the dock to go back to the mainland. We loved the coral island from the minute we stepped onto it. The people we found were so incredibly friendly, the markets vibrant, the water so clear and warm and the beaches white and powdery soft. I think we both new we would return to the island that made us feel welcome and relaxed. We visited the Caribbean side of Mexico several times after that and always made time to get back to Isla Mujeres. The visits were always organized so that we used Isla as an offshoot to a busy vacation until finally we started taking trips with our destination being 'The Island'.

Because we had visited the island so often we got a feel for various areas. At first we stayed in the public central area but with each return we stayed further away and found we enjoyed the lifestyle of being a little further away from the tourist area and more into the neighbourhoods. We found a realtor, Jim Botaish, who we contacted each visit for a couple of years. He showed us houses when we were down and then we came across the gem that we now call Casa Mojitoville. The house with its open concept, 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms fit our needs but we wanted a little more. We had a rooftop reno done so that our total living space would be increased and we could appreciate the wonderful views of the Salina Grande and the sky line of the eastern side of the island. With the infinity pool, lounge area, granite bar area under the palapa as well as an airy shower and toilet washroom we found that we didn't even have to leave the privacy of home and especially the rooftop in order to relax in the sun and yet stay cool.

What makes this house unique

As planned we have had some of our family join us for a fun filled vacation. We have enjoyed showing them the highlights of the island and spent luxurious days at the beach. We all enjoy walking and that is one of the great things about Casa Mojitoville. It is just a short walk along a cobblestone walkway to get to children's parks, shopping, beaches, restaurants, and entertainment.

For us, Isla Mujeres and Casa Mojitoville has offered a place where we can balance the work that we love with total relaxation, be warm, enjoy all the outdoor activities we could want; and most of all call a second home.

Great location, awesome casa

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at North Beach in the past, we were extremely impressed with the mid island location of this property. Up on North Beach a golf cart or taxi was needed to get to Punta Sur, but being mid island we walked everywhere, North Beach, Punta Sur, turtle sanctuary, grocery store and many different restaurants nearby. The casa was awesome, clean and great wifi. Owners Rick and Deb and manager Drew were outstanding, checking in on us to make sure all was well. Spent tons of time on the roof top patio and pool, great for morning coffee, afternoon margaritas and gazing at the evening stars. For good eats and drinks check out our favourites, Oscars, la tarina at the end of the block, and food and art straight across the Laguna and up the hill. Grant, Heather, Pete and Jan

Love Casa Mojitoville!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this Casa so much that we booked next years trip even before we checked out. Owner Rick quickly responsive and property manager Drew terrific too. Only problem was the battery was stolen out of our golf cart and cables cut as it sat outside the gate. Neighborhood is a tad sketchy but I was still disappointed when this happened.

Owner's Response: So sorry that the battery was stolen from the rental cart. I know this does unfortunately happen on Isla at various locations. Petty theft can be an inconvenience at times. The rental companies do replace at no charge on the odd occasion. Best way is to ask for a cart with a locking engine compartment. I will discuss with Drew our property manager if we can create off street parking behind the gate soon. Will be looking forward to your next vacation at Casa Mojitoville that you have booked in 2019. Take care. Rick

Great property . . . Has everything you need for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Mojitoville two years ago, and then again this year. We love the house. Spacious 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom with full kitchen and living room. Bonus is rooftop pool, comfy chaise lounges, hammocks and a covered palapa with a wet bar! Floats and towels available to use in the pool and at the beach. Very cleaned and well-maintained. Drew, the property manager is very attentive. The gardener is happy to cut coconuts from the trees and open them for you. Location is mid island, so a golf cart is recommended. Our two children and two grandchilren were with us, and there was plenty of room for everyone. Highly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan Was so nice to have you return to the Casa. So glad that your group found that there was plenty of room for everybody and that the kids all had a great time, no doubt mostly in the pool :-) We are so fortunate to have Drew as our property manager there as he has befriended many of our newer guests and especially those that have been return guests. Our gardener Sr. Ventura is actually from Mayan descent and has been very obliging with obtaining coconuts for our guests. Hope to hear from you again in the future Susan, remember to book early as we are already booked for 1/2 of prime time for 2019 already. Take care. Rick

Best Holiday Yet!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful family vacation at the Casa. This is our 4th time and have had nothing buy incredible experiences and memories. Love the roof top oasis with pool and multiple sunning areas and places to lounge. All the amenities of home and comfy beds. The gardener collected us fresh coconuts from the coconut trees in the yard. It was an incredible time and will be back again soon. Thank you for always taking such great care of us.

Our Favourite Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our third stay at Casa Mojitoville, which tells you how much we enjoy staying there. From the very start, Rick has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and he has a great support team on Isla, from Drew the property manager, his assistant Martin, Rosa the housekeeper and Sr Ventura the gardener, all are exceptional! Any issues during our stays have been dealt with immediately and everyone is committed to making your stay as enjoyable as possible. The house is beautiful and well-equipped. Beds are firm, but very comfortable and the linens smell amazing. From the roof top pool, lounges, dining area and bathroom, to the main floor amenities, the home has everything you could possibly want. We have rented many homes worldwide and Casa Mojitoville continues to be our favourite. The location on the lagoon is ideal for morning walks and there are excellent restaurants nearby, if you choose not to cook. We love the residential area and the local dogs are always ready for some affection. Renting a golf cart will make it easy to explore the whole island and it's many beautiful beaches. You can rent 2 lounges with umbrella for a whole day at North Beach for only 180 pesos, or go to some of the resort beaches and enjoy the facilities for the cost of a meal. Isla Mujeres can get very busy at times so we love having our own piece of heaven at Casa Mojitoville. Thank you Rick and Debbie for sharing your island paradise!

Thanks again ever so much. Rick and Debbie

Charming home on center of Isla - roof top patio and pool!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Mojitoville! This home is clean, well kept, great size, and center of the island location made exploring easy. We stayed for almost two weeks and were so glad we rented a home to spread out in.

We spent many afternoons on the rooftop patio sunning ourselves and reading with our toes dipped in the soaking pool. Large grocery store is a 10-15 walk from the house, Oscar's restaurant a few blocks away for pizza, and a great café down the street (La Tarima) who had the best smoothies. Many people rent golf carts to get around, however we found a taxi ride from the house to either end of the island was only 100 pesos round trip so we chose to do that instead.

The house has pretty much any amenity you could need and Drew, the property manager, was super helpful and easily reachable. I have been impressed with Rick's accessibility too. It made us feel we had resources if we needed them.

We would definitely consider booking Casa Mojitoville again and appreciate their wonderful hospitality!

Owner's Response: Thanks ever so much Selena for your kind review. So glad that Drew and I could help you out with things during your stay. Was a pleasure communicating with you as well. Happy to hear that the taxi service was all that you required to get around the Island. Would be more than pleased to hear from you again in the future. Take care. Rick

Casa Mojitoville, the perfect affordable Caribbean Island get away!! Located on beautiful Isla Mujeres just off the coast from Cancun on the Yucatan Peninsula.

Transport can be easily pre-arranged from the Cancun International Airport to the high speed ferry terminal at Puerto Juarez. Guests have found CARM Transfers to be very convenient to book on line. There the ferries leave every 1/2 hour and take an exciting 20 minute ride to the brand new Ultramar Ferry Terminal at Isla Mujeres. Enjoy the live music on the open upper deck while admiring the gorgeous colours on the Caribbean Sea.

Isla Mujeres, 'The Island of Women' with swaying palms on beautiful white soft sandy beaches and crystal clear warm Caribbean waters will surely convince you that you have arrived in Paradise. The sand, made from the coral reef. It is comfortable to walk on even in the hot days


Gentle breezes will also keep your body from getting too warm, ah yes, and also that cool drink will also help!!

Casa Mojitoville, you will find is the perfect vacation spot where you can get away from the crowds of the northern end of the island, but still be just a few minutes away when you would like to indulge yourself in what is offered in fine dining, shopping and many outdoor activity excursions that are offered there. Our Casa is located at the quiet end of a street right on Salina Grande (Large Lagoon). This is the largest of the 3 lagoons on Isla Mujeres. There is a great curbed walkway around the entire Salina for those who enjoy those early morning or late evening runs or walks.

Also within walking distance are a couple of awesome must try eateries well known by many travellers (The Mango for brunches and Oscars for lunch or dinner (below at their marina). Oscar's also has fast delivery service available.

There is even a drive through just 3 blocks away for beer, chips and frozen treats, for when you are on the run:)

Also close by is a large box store called the Chadreau where you can pick up almost anything that you will need at a reasonable price.

Cabs are very inexpensive and quick on Isla. There are also golf cart rental outlets that are abundant here for when you would like to really explore the rest of the Island. (Recommended)

Just a few things to mention to do around the Island would be

snorkeling with tropical fish, viewing dolphins or whale sharks, zip lines, observe hundreds of turtles at the turtle farm, view Mayan ruins, experience world class sports fishing with professional crews, view the beautiful Caribbean surf and of course sunbathing on the world renowned beaches of Isla Mujeres.
