Spacious Oceanfront home sleeps 6-8; Option of attached studio apt sleeps 1-2
Watch the sunrise from your bedroom window overlooking the Caribbean, and the sunset from the front veranda, or enjoy amazing views of the entire island from the rooftop swing bar.
Listen to the sounds of the waves right outside your bedroom windows, and awaken to the beautiful sunrise over the ocean. En Suite MB has a king bed, an over sized window to take full advantage of the breathtaking views, and a slider to back patio overlooking the ocean. The 2nd BR has two queen beds as well as a slider onto the patio overlooking the ocean. Both bedrooms have beautiful glass doors opening to a circular patio overlooking the Caribbean.
The immense living area, with additional futon and L-shape sofa, not only opens to the circular patio overlooking the Caribbean, but also to a beautiful front veranda, which overlooks the Bay of Cancun and it's picturesque sailboats and sunsets.
Although you can easily access all that Isla has to offer by foot or by inexpensive taxi, the home has a full size garage should you choose to rent a golf cart.
Island Magazine 'Top 10 Best Islands in the World': 'Development has transformed the Mexican Caribbean, but Isla Mujeres, less than half-hour by boat from Cancun, still is holding onto some of that old, small-fishing-village, kick-back-in-the-hammock Mexico character. There are a couple of newer, somewhat upscale inns, but for now the island is still geared more to low-key days of snorkeling (notably the reefs of El Garrafon National Park near the southern tip), fishing (the energy level does pick up during annual international fishing tournaments), and beach time - followed by nights of live music and tequila bars.'
'A moped, bike, or golf cart is best way to do a little sightseeing (the ruins of a small Maya temple on a sea bluff and a sea turtle farm, both at the southern end of the island, are the main attractions).' ....'Sign up for a whale-shark tour available from June to September'.
MSNBC ' Five Best Islands to Live On': 'This tiny island off the Yucatán Peninsula blends the soul of Mexico with the beaches of the Caribbean. This is a hammock-swinging lifestyle, peppered with Mayan legends.'...'Only eight miles from hyperactive Cancún, Isla Mujeres is a throwback to Mexico’s more innocent days, a time when you might have driven a VW bus down the Yucatán Peninsula, slept beneath a million stars and cooked fish tacos over an open fire. Isla, as it is known, is a casual place that has added a few conveniences without sacrificing its Mexican soul. You can still wander sandy, unpaved roads into villages where fishermen are mending their nets. Hammocks take the place of beds in colorful, Caribbean-style casas; and to get from point A to B, the preferred transport is by golf cart .... After all the island is only five miles long, and what’s your hurry anyway? Remember, this isn’t just Mexico, it’s Caribbean Mexico. '
Tourism Isla Mujeres: 'During the summer months, swimming with the WHALE SHARKS is the number one attraction bringing visitors from all around the globe to Isla Mujeres for the opportunity to come in close contact with the world's largest fish only 45 minutes offshore. Be sure to stay the night to be ready for your whale shark excursion which leaves between 7 and 8 am daily.'
'After a day filled with water sports, in the evening you might take in a salsa band on Ave. Hidalgo, or join in the music and dancing of a local festival; maybe even cheer at a basketball game in the main square. Community and family activities are a major part of life here. This is especially true during CARNAVAL, the week before Mardi Gras when groups of friends from five years to sixty-five perform in the streets with the costumes and dance routines they have been readying for months. It's non stop party fun.'
About the Owner
I first fell in love with Isla in 1987. I was lucky enough to purchase a beautiful lot on the Caribbean in 2006. Casa Cielo was built in 2008.
I am a Physical Therapist (for both people and dogs) in New York, USA. Someday I hope to spend several months a year in my beautiful Isla home, but for now I enjoy sharing this special place with you! I have 2 young adult children who have grown up vacationing on Isla, and we continue to bring friends and family for our annual New Year's trip. My daughter Kati helps me with rentals and online correspondence with guests.
Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful vacation on Isla Mujeres. We spent two relaxing weeks at Casa Cielo. The oceanfront villa was fabulous. Very private patio overlooking the Caribbean. You feel almost as though you are in the sea. It was spacious and clean. Wonderful stereo with great collection of music and an ipod dock for your own music. Can watch the sun rise from your bed and watch the sunset from back porch. What more could you ask for. Can't wait to go back!!

Activity and Interests
Isla Mujeres is a hidden treasure of an island just off the coast of Cancun. It combines the picturesque paradise of a small, safe Caribbean island, (rated #1 safest island by island magazine) with easy access to the excitement of Cancun. It's a short 20 min ferry ride from Cancun, and ferries leave every 30 min.
The house sits just south of Isla's downtown, making it a very short walk to the many great restaurants and bars on Isla's main street, Hildago. Infact, it is the 1st rental home south of the Navy base, giving you both the serenity of a private villa on the Caribbean, and easy access into town and beautiful North Beach.
There is also a sea-side promenade which begins at your backdoor and leads into the center of town, winding along the Caribbean...great for walks, jogging, or a bike ride!
In addition its many great restaurants, casual night life with live bands playing most nights, Isla has wonderful things to see during the day, including Mayan Ruins, Garafon Water Park, Dolphin Discovery, and the Sea Turtle sancturary.
Speaking of seaturtles, you can see these beautiful creatures laying their eggs on the beach behind the house (summer months). They come ashore after dark and in the morning you will see deep craters in the sand and the tracks of their flippers crawling back into the ocean! Truly an amazing experience!
The beach behind the house is also a wonderful place to find sea glass and shells.
Whale shark tours are another once in a lifetime experience you can have on Isla Mujeres. These extraordinary solitary creatures come together for 2 months a year, in one place in the world.... just off the coast of Isla Mujeres!
Our rooftop boasts the best 360 degree view on the island! Complete with swing bar, you will enjoy many sunset toasts enjoying this amazing view!

From the Owner
“Casa Cielo sits on the most narrow section of the island, and one of the highest. This prime location affords us gorgeous 360 degree views! The beautiful Caribbean is just outside your backdoor. Sliding doors open to your own private ocean from both bedrooms and living area! Gorgeous view of Cancun Bay with beautiful sailboats off of the front veranda! The rooftop swing bar offers the best 360 degree view of the island! Other than the incredible views, the location offers the best of both worlds, privacy as well as being only a short walk into town with all of Isla's wonderful restaurants and shopping!”
