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.

This Casa has it all. Well equipped with everything you want for from toaster to coffee pot and hair blower. The rooftop patio and pool are awesome. We spent most afternoons and evenings up there. Don’t be taken back by the sketchy neighbourhood the dogs meet your golf cart every time and they are so friendly. Awesome trip and we will be back again

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay at Casa Mojitoville and thoroughly enjoyed it. The casa is very clean and welcoming with everything one would need while visiting Isla Mujeres.

We contacted the owner a couple of times with questions while we were on the island and he was very quick to respond.

We would definitley consider this a top pick the next time we are on the island.

The perfect spot to relax

  • 5 of 5

The Casa was a wonderful place to relax, and I like that it's in a residential area, and not located in the busy tourists areas. The Casa is at the end of a dead end road, so there's no traffic and we felt very safe there. We enjoyed walking our two dogs around the cobble stone walkway which circles the lagoon, and it was nice to have a fully fenced yard for our dogs to enjoy. When we wanted to check out some restaurants or do some shopping, it was very affordable to take a Taxi, and with the new Pallet Cafe' restaurant a couple blocks from the Casa, we didn't have to go too far. The Casa was clean, with full sized appliances, large open kitchen and living room. The roof top pool with full bathroom and large patio with eating bar, was fantastic! Drew, the property manger was available at all times if we had any questions. This will definitely be my first choice to stay, when visiting Isla Mujeres.

Beautiful house with privacy!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd trip to Isla, staying in a different house each time. It's by far the best. This spacious jewel is in the center of Isla yet in a quiet neighborhood. It has comfortable beds, quality furnishings and the split level house is very well appointed. It has a fully equipped kitchen. The property manager Drew, took care of our every need and added so much to our stay. We look forward to many return trips to Casa Mojitoville!

Great time at Casa Mojitoville

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 2 couples had a great time at Casa Mojitoville. The house was perfect- 2 comfortable beds, 2 bathrooms and an open kitchen/living room in the house, and an awesome palapa on the the roof with table/chairs, hammock, lounge chairs and pool. The pool was the highlight for us- we were in it almost every single day. House had everything we needed- bath towels, a fully equipped kitchen, a safe for locking away passports, etc.

Located in the middle of the island, this residence definitely has more of a neighborhood feel than places in Centro, which we enjoyed. Plus, everything is just a short golf cart ride away (I definitley recommend renting a golf cart for the whole time you will be staying at this property).

Rick and Drew were both great to deal with and we had all the information we needed for an excellent stay. Thanks again!

Owner's Response: Awesome guys, so glad the Casa was a good fit for you all :-) Thanks ever so much for the lovely comments, sure makes it very rewarding to hear everyone had a great time. Was a pleasure communicating with you. And yes, we are very fortunate to have Drew as our property manager, he always manages to that little bit extra for everyone. Would be glad to have you all back again in the future anytime you can make it down to Isla Mujeres for another tropical fix. Thanks again. Rick

Awesome place on Isla Mujeres to stay and take in the whale sharks.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the best time at Casa Mojitoville with our granddaughter. The Casa is away from the crowds on the north end of the island, was a great place to relax. Had everything we needed, kitchen well equipped, beds very comfy, nice to have 3 bathrooms, especially the one up in the pool/lounge area with the palapa overhead. Found that our granddaughter loved to spend a lot of time in the pool as well as ourselves. Did not feel like we had to go out all the time, that we enjoyed what the Casa had to offer us. When we did venture out, Dolphin Discovery was a must do as well as swimming with the whale sharks was incredible!! Drew the property manager is a wealth of information and can hook you up with Captain Tony for a safe and enjoyable experience. Food was great, took in the Mango for brunch's, Olivia's for dinning and Oscar's just 2 blocks away was very good and convenient.

Will definitely be back!!

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.
