I chose Apt. 3A because of the history of it being the home and studio of the artist/proprietress of Casa Isleño, Henrietta Morris de Avila. It was a spacious room right on the parade route. If there were any traditional processions taking place, we only needed to step outside to enjoy them, and in the short time of our visit, there were a few! Altogether, the location was amazing. Just steps from restaurants, shops, the beach right around the corner........within a few days, we were navigating the streets with ease, walking everywhere. People were so friendly, it wasn't long until we began seeing familiar faces and exchanging greetings. Though busy during the day, by around 10pm the streets were quiet. We had the great fortune to be visiting when Rob was there working on some renovations. He was incredibly helpful and welcoming! He made sure we had everything we needed and detailed the best spots for food, golf cart rental, etc. There were plenty of towels, a coffeemaker, fridge, bottled water, a hotplate.....but really, with the exception of some snacks, fruit and beverages in the fridge, there was no need for cooking. Fresh, delicious, varied, and inexpensive food was widely available. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and I like to think that we got a sense of the slow yet celebratory pace of the way of life on the island. We look forward to another trip to Isla Mujeres.…
Our stay at Casa Isleno was a great pleasure! Located right in the middle of town with food, drinks, bars, shops and beach all in walking distance. We were lucky that Rob the owner was there to meet us and introduce us to the local culture. Our room was well prepared with supplies for our stay. We truly enjoyed our week there and would certainly visit again.
Great location in the center of the action. The room was really nice and clean. Had everything you need. Close to many restaurants, bars, beaches, event center etc. Rob was easy to deal with and very helpful. Marie was great and very kind person. Thanks guys!
My same-sex partner and I had an INCREDIBLE time on the island, thanks to the hospitality shown to us by Casa Isleno. Rob called us as we booked and we chatted for about half an hour about the island, giving us a great sense of welcome, then his cousin Marie greeted us upon our arrival and drove us around the island by golf cart, showing us everything (including a statue of her grandfather!) and even took us to the supermarket to pick up items. The house itself couldn't be more central to town and we were at the beach within 10 lazy minutes, bars and shops within 3 minutes, and in heaven within seconds. The only downside was that we weren't there long enough. Will be remedied next time! Thanks for a great, relaxing trip!
Wonderful, charming , and so close to beaches, dinning, nightlife, being in downtown you can walk to everything . swim with the whale sharks or the dolphin discovery and the beaches are white coral sand with casual bars with friendly bartenders and every flavor of great food at a variety of restaurants.
