Had read about the shell house on TripAdvisor. We came across it during our travels. Very interesting architecture! Very cool in person! Apparently it's a rental home if you want to see what it's like to live in a seashell.

Description
The Shell house is the most original house in Isla Mujeres or maybe in the world. One of the most sensual houses you will ever enjoy. Experience the beauty of the Caribbean Ocean with180 degrees of ocean views. More Have your ever imagine living inside a sea shell? Taken a bath under a shell fountain. The pleasure of waking with the ocean’s murmur and the gentle caress of the ocean’s breeze. Dip in your on private pool. Reach with just a few steps amazing cliffs and beaches that appear and disappeared with the tides, where the ocean shares incredible gifts, amazing shells and corals you find along the sea. Awaken to the most incredible sunrises where you need to pinch yourself to make sure you are not still dreaming. A sky full of stars like you have never experience, Moon rises that you have seen only in your dreams. The shell house offers you the most inclusive place for a romantic wedding. Less
