About Katy Hochmayr
Isla Retreats is owned and operated by father and daughter team, Dave and Katy Hochmayr. We began coming to Isla Mujeres in 1989 and it soon became our second home. We love the unique family and cultural ambiance on the island that creates a very comfortable and relaxing place to live and vacation. We purchased the property where Isla Retreats is located as an empty lot in 2006 and began building in February of 2016. We are very excited to have finally finished the project in May of 2017. The design and vision of Isla Retreats came from Dave - he creatively thought of the most unique details that make this property so exceptional.
Katy Hochmayr purchased this Villa in 2017
Why Katy Hochmayr chose Salinas
Our main goal for Isla Retreats is to provide an adults only, tranquil and unique Caribbean-Mexican experience. Guests can get away from the hustle-bustle of downtown and everyday life to relax and savor the lovely island. We designed the common area to create a peaceful ambience featuring a salt-water pool with waterfalls, beach chairs and umbrellas, tropical gardens and an exquisite palapa. We wanted to keep as much green-space as possible, so we designed the property with many tropical plants and coconut trees. There are many extraordinary hand-carved marble and onyx sculptures throughout the property as well.
What makes this Villa unique
We enjoy working with our guests directly so that they can have the best vacation possible, as we know how special and memorable vacations are. We look forward to sharing Isla Retreats with many guests in the years to come. With over 14 years experience of living and working on the island, and being fluent in both Spanish and English, Katy will be able to answer all of your questions relating to your vacation at Isla Retreats throughout the reservation process.

Amazing, Beautiful, Comfortable stay. Excellent se
My 2 daughters and I and a family friend had the most amazing time at Isla Retreats. Katy and her Fun loving father were amazing hosts! Katy was so gracious helped with our golf cart rental. The staff was great. I had to go across the street to the tiny store for a cpl things and the sweet housekeeper followed me to help me with my Spanish. The rooms we had suites 3 and 4 were so comfortable, linens, towels so comfortable. The kitchen had everything u coukd want. Always plenty of fresh water..doing the dishes was a treat looking out to the lagoon and picking a col limes from the lime tree and watching the hummingbirds feast on the nectar. So many delicious places to walk and eat. Every morning I would walk across the street with my coffee and sit on the wall and watch the waves and sea glass hunt. I will definitely come back to this paradise. Grounds and Pool were spectacular. Thank You!! I felt very safe always, but I always do on this magical Island. Keep up the good work Isla Retreats. I will see you soon.
One more thing...the best Shower/Water pressure I have ever had on the Island. This was my 9th different place i have stayed over the years.
We just got home and we already want to go back! My husband and I instantly fell in love with the Island and Isla Retreats. We stayed in Villa #3 and it was very upscale, and had all of the comforts of home. The rooms were completely spotless, and clean. These accommodations exceeded our expectations - this property is definitely the most beautiful we’ve seen on the Island. I loved all of the closet space in the bedrooms, and the kitchen has the best cookware and cutlery . There is not a detail that has been over-looked, and the service is top- notch! The owners and staff are so accommodating and friendly. Everyone made sure our experience each day was perfect. We enjoyed many different local restaurants nearby, and the food was Always Amazing!
The pool area is very peaceful and relaxing (I loved the saltwater pool). And we enjoyed spending 'happy hour' each day, under the palapa. We can't wait to plan our next vacation at Isla Retreats!
Isla Retreats was the perfect getaway location. Descriptions that come to mind for the property include: tranquil, tropical, peaceful, and beautiful. It’s location is ideal for travel into Playa Norte or to the opposite end of the island. In addition, there are many delicious restaurants just a few blocks away.
Katy is the ideal host, always available, and always with a smile. She even arranged for our golf carts to be waiting, upon our arrival to the property.
The outdoor pool was a treat, perfect for an afternoon cool down.
I can’t say enough about our stay. We can’t wait to return!
This is our 3rd time to stay on the Island. First time at Isla Retreats. This is a beautiful place. The condos are lovely and have everything you need. We rented golf carts and Katy had them ready for us upon arrival which was so nice. We headed out right away to grocery shop etc. and get ready for our stay. This place is quiet and clean, relaxing and modern. A golf cart is necessary as the swimming Beach is more than a walk away. But we liked heading out to the beach in the morning and returning to a quiet place at night. Katy and Dave did a great job with place.
Beautiful property with gracious hosts
My family and I stayed in Villas 3 and 4 for a week. Outside, the setting is gorgeous, with tropical foliage, artwork, salt-water pool and colorful dwellings. Inside the decor is perfect for the island setting, the furniture and beds comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, and between the two villas we had more than enough room for 3 adults.
But as impressive as the villas were, even more impressive was the kindness and helpfulness of our hosts. Katy assisted us over the week in ways big and small. She was very available and quick to make sure our stay was pleasant or to provide us with suggestions as to restaurants or places to visit. David worked around the property, making sure everything was just right for his guests.
The island itself was great, the people friendly. Even though we could say little more than por favor and gracias, somehow we got along well. We walked all over the island and took a cab for the longer distances or the return. The food was delicious, with some of our better meals coming from the less-assuming restaurants. Mango Café was one of our favorites.
Isla Retreats - 5 Stars
My wife and I were looking for a getaway and we were lucky enough to find Isla Retreats. It was a quick trip for us, in Friday and out Monday but we enjoyed every minute.
Katy and David are AMAZING owners. We've done alot of VRBO in our travels and can honestly say that we've never encountered more caring and good people. They went out of their way to insure we had the best time possible. The property is 5 stars and so are the owners.
The instructions from Airport to Island were perfect and made it very easy. We were first time travelers to Isla Mujeres and were a bit concerned at first on making the trek from airport to ferry, etc. It was super simple, we landed in Cancun at 11 and were drinking margaritas on the Island by 12:30.
Isla Retreats is a spa like setting with an amazing pool. The whole property is just really well done. We stayed in Villa #1 and it was first class all the way. we couldn't have asked for more.
Katy and David provide more of a 'concierge' type experience - From golf carts to Island Restaurants they totally hooked us up. Cant wait to go back. PS, get the golf cart while you're on the Island you wont regret that. Isla Retreats is perfectly located making it easy to get to the town / bars and explore the beaches and south side of the Island.
If you're wanting to experience the beauty of Mexico culture then Isla Mujeres is the place to go - Amazing food and beautiful people.
Cant wait to go back!
