Is the shell house worth it

I just checked out the rates and can't believe this place goes for that cheap, anybody stayed there. I notice there is full availability on the home away site, how can this be true? Somebody please fill me in on what the deal is with this place

Not sure if they are really renting it.

I have heard the house isn't in that great of shape and although kind of fun to say you stayed there, it isn't kept up very well. People I know were disappointed in it.

I have never been in the house, but their calendar on home away may not be current. Many owners don't keep their calendars current on that website or on vrbo, for whatever reason.

It looks like the calender hasn't been revised since dec 2007, oh well. We remember seing it when we visited Isla Mujeres and now I think we want to spen a week there, maybe more. That's a shame it wasn't kept -up, looks like an interesting concept that should do well, perhaps they could have asked for more to rent it, even though its small it has potential. Thanks for all the info, we'll have to keep looking for another place.
