About Gwen LaPole
Have you ever had a Dream? Displayed in our home is a placque that was given to us as a gift. It says DREAM BIG. Our dream was to have a home somewhere in the Caribbean. We had vacationed on so many of the islands. So, every night after work we would take our laptop out on the porch and start to google, realestateSaintSomewhere. Then we’d go there and ask a realtor to show us around. We’d never thought about Mexico until a friend of ours moved there. She asked some of her friends where we should look and they all said “Isla Mujeres.” We said, “where is that?” To make this long story short, we came here, we fell in love with the island and all she has to offer; most especially, her warm and caring people. They are truly amazing. We found the lot, then our wonderful builder. Richard drew the plans. Patricio built the house and I picked all the colors and décor. So, please let us welcome you to Case de Jaguar
Gwen LaPole purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Gwen LaPole chose Isla Mujeres
Gorgeous, uninterupted Caribbean View 365 days a year. Very Small island, unique location; yet easy to get to. Mexican hospitality.
What makes this Villa unique
There are so many things to do here. After so many trips to the beautiful island we still find something new and exciting each and every trip! Relax and do nothing, go fishing, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, diving. Go to the turtle farm, swim with the dolphins, sea lions and manatee @ the Dolphin Discovery, go on whale shark tour and swim with them. It's endless.

Family 2020 Getaway
The house is stunning and the quality of the inside of the home is top notch. The owner - Gwen was very accomodating with her directions and help.
Only negatives are:
Need back up plan with electricity goes out.
Internet speeds very low - not a place to do business.
Be careful of the crime and drinking while driving the golf carts. ( Had issues)
Two bedrooms are upstairs which was Perfect for us with older children, Two where on the main level where my grandchildren stayed. Was awesome to take care of them while parents were upstairs.
Overall the quality, view, pool were outstanding!
Enjoyed our stay and would return in the future.
A vacation in paradise!
Casa de Jaguar was amazingly serene. The house was so clean, the location ideal for quiet days and nights, and the pool!!!! With our group of 4 couples, we had more than enough room to roam in the house and outside by the pool. We cooked a few meals in the nicely equipped kitchen, although we did eat many meals in local restaurants as well. (Javi’s Cantina, Madera and Kin Ha we’re by far our favorites)
It was a wonderful location, with every possible amenity, and we would highly recommend that you plan your visit soon! And you may want to plan a spectacular evening at home with Javi (from Javi’s Cantina in town) cooking for your group!!! That was a true highlight of our trip to Isla Mujeres!
Thank you Gwen for the perfect vacation spot at your home.
Amazing house, awesome private pool! Perfect for 4 couples! We only had three couples, each had their own space...bedroom, bathroom and shower. Sunrises are beautiful. Spent most days in the pool after we bought floaties. The power was down two of the days; which put a damper on our ice supply and blended drinks. We text Armin and he told us it would be back on in two minutes....over four hours later we gave up and left. Other than that, it’s going to be very hard to find another house on the island compareable! This was one of the couples second stay at Casa De Jaguar. Polo Mangos...best breakfast!! Fuego de Mar....best dinner!
Mexican and Modern Style Meet
My family of 7 loved this house during our stay from February 1-9, 2019. Gwen was wonderful to work with before and during our stay.
She didn't get sick of the millions of questions I had for her. That said, I would recommend anybody with a family group to stay at Gwen and Fred's lovely home. The house has 4 very well appointed bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. There are chairs for lounging by the pool and all the modern appliances in the kitchen.
The housekeeper came during our stay and it was nice to come home to a clean house after spending the day at Captain Dulche's Beach club. Armin,the house manager was a blessing. My son's mother-in-law from Equador came on this trip with us and she wanted to make fish. I asked Armin about where we could get fish and he brought us two huge red snappers freshly caught. Maria cleaned and prepared the fish and my sons grilled them. It was outstanding and probably the best meal we had the whole time we were on the island. There is plenty of room to spread out so you don't get on each other's nerves. Lastly we took Gwen's suggestions for some places to eat on the island. I loved the Chili Relleno at Basto's Grill. I highly recommend Fuego de Mar. The chefs at this restaurant were awesome. We went to North beach a few times and it is less expensive than Captain Dulche and Zama Beach clubs but the beach at Zama was awful so I don't recommend this place. Captain Dulche was great but really expensive for what you get. At any rate, I will definitely try and come again to this house especially if I bring my extended family. The house also makes for a great two family retreat as the two bedrooms upstairs are large and the view is fantastic. Every bedroom locks so there is plenty of privacy. By the way if you were ever worried about security on the island don't even let it be a factor. Gwen provides locks not only to every bedroom but to the safes in each room, to the screen doors and hardwood doors and to the front gate. A real fortress!! My highest and best rating goes to Casa de Jaguar.
