About the property


A great place to call home for a few days to long term. Casa Turix is tucked away in a lively neighborhood where you can experience everyday life in Mexico, practice your Spanish and English with the locals at neighborhood shops and restaurants. Just minutes away from the lively streets of downtown Isla Mujeres and the best beaches of the Caribbean, Playa Norte, you have the best of two worlds. This quaint two bedroom home can comfortably accommodate four adults with a full kitchen and court yard to enjoy. Sip coffee in the morning or enjoy a glass of wine in the evening on the front porch and watch the neighborhood come alive.

About Cheryl


Turix in the native language, Maya, means Dragonfly

If you ask many of the locals with Mayan heritage, there is a good chance they will tell you about the significance of the dragonfly.

If you see a Turix (Dragonfly) in your home, it means a visitor is coming and it will be a good visit.

Cheryl purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Cheryl chose Salina Grande


When looking for a winter vacation, a small ad caught my attention in the local newspaper from Minneapolis, MN in 2000. Looking for something less touristy and a way to engage my two children in a new culture, I took a leap and booked our first trip in 2000.

In 2013 we purchased the house and built a second floor and renivated the 1st floor.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thanks for everything, we adored our time here.

We fell in LOVE all over again while we stayed here, it a magical place.

Good luck!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, spacious, and well maintained. We really enjoyed our stay, and wish it could have been longer. The kids loved the courtyard surprise!

Nice home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is actually bigger than it looks in the pictures. This is a great choice for those on a budget or those wanting to live like a local. There are a few places to eat about a block away. There is also a little park, a laundry, a large supermarket and more within walking distance. Everything else can be reached by taxi. The AC is only in the two bedrooms. One bedroom has a window right on the street, and you do hear some street noise during the night. There are two double beds and one futon style couch that is not comfy. The owner is a friendly, welcoming American expat who lives upstairs. Overall, this was a great home base for the month we spent in Isla Mujeres.

Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

Large apartment, very clean, everything you need. You will not be bored. Hustle and bustle going on all the time. School across the street. All stores nearby, great restaurants walking distance. Taxis in front to take you anywhere on the island. Negotiate before getting in, some are greedy. A/C only in bedrooms and for night time only. Ceiling fans. Comfy beds, 1queen, 1 double. Soccer games right behind the house for sports fans. Hot water in bathroom only and on timer (10 minutes wait). Landlady is a sweetheart and very accommodating to your needs. (she lives upstairs) I felt very safe with windows and doors open all the time. GREAT DEAL.

Best place in the neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

Would highly recommend this apartment to rent. Super clean! The owner greeted us when we got there - very nice person! Great friendly neighborhood within walking distance to stores, pharmacies and restaurants. Had coffee out on the patio. I even had a leather strap on my purse fixed for "almost free" two doors down from us. Taxis to bring us in town to different restaurants, shopping and beaches were available 24/7 and very inexpensive. Glad we found the only open time to rent. Better rent sooner next year to ensure availability:)

Casa Turix is tucked in a delightful local neighborhood where sitting on your front porch will never have a dull moment. It is an easy 2 block walk to the Caribbean coast great for seashell hunting and enjoying the sea breeze. It is also a short walk from Chedraui, a large supremarket for all your shopping needs. A newly opened tortilla shop is two doors down and small groceries as well your convenience. At home you can enjoy cooking in a fully stocked kitchen with oven and stovetop. A block away is one of the Island's most popular restaurants, Mango Cafe. This clean apartment is wonderful for families and couples that enjoy cooking and grilling (gas grill included!) and on occasion hosting dinner parties or enjoying the day in the courtyard in the dipping pool. Its easy to get to downtown and one of the world's most beautiful beach, Playa Norte, by a quick taxi ride from 15-25 pesos as well as a local bus line for around 5 pesos. Island living with the comforts of home!
