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.

We enjoyed every second of our stay. Can't wait to return. Rooftop was so relaxing.
Great central location to do it all!
Great open floor plan in central location to do everything in Isa! Communication with property owners and manager was on the spot! Thanks for a great vacation!
Thanks for your nice review and thanks again for staying with us at Casa Mojitoville. Was great communicating with you, take care.
Best Vacation Yet!
We have come to Mexico many times and this was one of our favourite vacations! This is our fourth time to Casa Mojiotville and we will continue to return. We have come with our kids and this time just my husband and I as a couples vacation and whatever you are looking for this Casa can accommodate. It has all the amenities of home but in paradise. We spent much our time at the roof top pool and lounged in the hammocks and comfy sun chairs. The palapa with bar are convenient and lovely.
We started the day with a run around the East side of the island and Salena Grande walk way in front of the Casa. There are delicious restaurants close by and love the location as its safe and quiet. Lovely little yard and the gardener picked us fresh coconuts. We had been in Playa del Carmen a few weeks before our Isla Mujeres trip and there was lots of seaweed, not a problem on Isla. Beaches and people are amazing! I recommend you go experience for yourself this rental won't disappoint. The owners were wonderful to work with and property managers had all the details covered to make our vacation easy and top notch.
So happy to hear that you had another great holiday time at Casa Mojitoville :-)
It is always a pleasure to hear from you to book another vacation time with us. Was awesome to hear that you found our area on Isla very convenient and suited your needs nicely. Hope to hear from you again soon.
Fun time at Casa Mojitoville
We enjoyed our stay at Casa Mojitoville. Very comfy and spacious. The rooftop pool was so relaxing after a long day out.
Outstanding, as always!
Recently returned from our 4th stay at Casa Mojitoville. Isla Mujeres is one of our favourite destinations and being able to stay at this villa just makes it that much better! Rick is fabulous to deal with and he has such a great team on the island, from Drew the property manager (always totally helpful), to Rosa the housekeeper (she does such a great job, the villa and the linens smell wonderful), to Señor Ventura (ready with a smile and keeps the grounds looking beautiful) to Candy (very knowledgeable & keeps the pool crystal clear). It is so nice to be welcomed back by these wonderful people. We love the location and being away from the touristy area. Thank you Rick & Debbie for sharing your little bit of paradise with us!
Thanks again for your lovely comments, we appreciate them very much :-)
It is always a pleasure to have you stay at our Casa on Isla Mujeres. Our staff there look forward to seeing you each time that you arrive. Looking forward to having you down for your next escape from the hustle and bustle of life at home. Take care.
Rick and Debbie

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.
