This spacious 2 Bedroom, 2 bath home, max occupancy 6 adults ( with option of attached 1BR studio apartment, max occupancy 2 adults) boasts panoramic, 360 degree views of the Caribbean from the back, as well as Cancun Bay, from the front.
Watch the sunrise from your bedroom window overlooking the Caribbean, and the sunset on Cancun Bay from the front porch, or enjoy amazing views of the entire island from the rooftop.
This beautiful ocean side villa sits just south of Isla's downtown, making it a very short walk to the many great restaurants and bars in the downtown district. It offers both the serenity of a private villa on the Caribbean, and easy access into town and beautiful North Beach. There is also a sea-promenade (Malecon) which begins at your backdoor and leads into the center of town, winding along the Caribbean ...great for walks, jogging, or a bike ride!
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. During the summer months, you will see giant sea turtles laying their eggs at night on the beach right behind the house. In the morning see the craters and flipper tracks left by them overnight!
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.
There is also the option of an attached studio apartment with full sized bed, kitchenette and private bathroom, which has a front yard shaded terrace. (Not included in house rental price but can be added to accommodate extra guests. Contact Owner for details ans pricing).
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.

Casa Cielo is an adress to keep in mind. It is clean,has all the amenities of a mnodern home, it is well managed and sits at the outskirt of the main drag; yet a short walk to town. The back of the house is a mere rock throw to the Crabbean sea but the rocky shore and treacherous undertow is a major drawback.
If one is in search of the idyllic,quiet,far away, nestled among a swaying palm tree island with endless sandy beaches there are far better options in the Carabbeans or the South Pacific.
Isla Mujeres is a small and rather populated island. Cost of living is comparable to other island but taxi fares are some of the lowest I have seen.
We enjoyed our one month stay but being somewhat loners,we would most likely seek different skies to blend with our
solitary and aventurous spirit.

We very much enjoyed our time at Casa Cielo!! The views from both the front and the back are wonderful. We loved listening to the ocean as we slept, and the breeze blowing through was brilliant...the kids have never slept better in their lives! Very easy walk into town (and that is with a walking 2 1/2 year old) where everything is available. The layout of the house is nice, lots of room for the kids and adults alike. We were 2 kids, 2 parents, and 2 grand-parents...and never felt crowded or in each others way. Marla is great, and very, very helpful with island knowledge and suggestions, she really helped to make our trip to Isla so much more. Having Pauncho next door was equally fun, and we enjoyed many moments with him, which continued beyond our stay at Cielo...a very interesting and happy man! Definitely recommend this property for those wishing to stay on the north end, but wanting to have a place with space and peace.

We had great communications with owner, Robin, to help us plan this wonderful week then were greeted at the ferry by our Isla Mujeres contact person who, along with Robin, had suggestions of restaurants, shopping, beaches for sunbathing, beaches for swimming, where to rent golf carts, where to buy groceries, fishing charters, etc. Our views were magnificent since the front of the house is on the Bay of Cancun and the back is on the Caribbean Sea. We relaxed in the comfortable house with charming island decor and enjoyed every moment of our week. New Year's Eve in Isla is amazing! The whole island gathers in the square for an all night party with music and dancing. What fun we had!!! Shopping is fun, the food is superb, the people are welcoming, and we can't wait to go back and can't say enough good things about the island and Casa Cielo! You will remember this trip with smiles on your faces!

I traveled with 4 other lady friends and was concerned that space and privacy might be an issue.I was pleasantly surprised the house was large and private with many places to rest or read as well as to gather and socailze.One of my big issues is the beds,I barely sleep in my own bed but didn't want to get out of the bed at Casa Cielo as it was so compfy! The views from each room are out of a travel magazine,not to be believed,Breathtakingly beautiful.
This house is located less than a mile from the ferry,I arrived alone and had no problem getting to the house on my own by foot.We virtually walked to town every day and every night,very doable.We took a cab on two occasions right in front of the house.The convenience of the amenities of this home are superb,the bathrooms are beautiful and spacious,the bedrooms have plenty of storage,the kitchen is well stocked for the basics and the furnishings are sleek and island inspired.I give this home a top review and Isla will embrace you like a long lost friend!

When visiting the island there is no better location to stay. It is close enough to walk to everything. The house is clean and provided a relaxed and fun atmosphere. I love waking up to the sound of the ocean in the house. The manager was there to help in everything that we needed and provided us with recommendations for all the things we wanted to do. I highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to explore this beautiful island.

Casa Cielo is a beautiful house that sits right on the Caribbean beach with wonderful ocean breezes and the sounds of crashing waves outside the windows. One of the best things about it is its location! It is such a nice walk into town on the seawall, and not much farther to North beach. You definitely save money on a golfcart and taxi's. The layout and decor is open and airy and has a distinctive "Island feel". They have a great stereo system which you can hook your i-pod to, or listen to their great collection of Cd's. The house has Wi-Fi, and a small TV/DVD that you can hook up to the cable if you wanted, but honestly I don't know why you would. It is great to sit on the back patio and look out onto the ocean, or sit on the front porch and watch the sailboats on the bay, or sometimes see the Navy practicing marching drills. The beds are super comfortable, a luxury seldom found in Mexican hotels. The kitchen has everything you would need, although if you enjoy cooking gourmet meals, it might not be for you. There are so many great and inexpensive places to eat, that it shouldn't be too much of a disappointment. All in all, I fell in love with Casa Cielo, and can't wait to go back!

My young adult family and my husband and I love this beautiful home. The views are incredible. We used the CD player constantly and fully equiped with everything needed. The owner and property manager were considerate to all our needs. Can't wait to go back

This was actually my second visit and have planed on one again in February 2111. First the house is very comfortable and accommodating with the large double bedrooms and 2 baths, with the comfortable living area on the other side. You can not imagine the views from all rooms. Just the ability of watching the sunrise over the Caribbean and sunset over the bay of Cancun is breathtaking. Walking through the village, quaint restaurants and bar, with superb local food, and great beaches make this an ideal vacation get a way.

The views are incredible and the location could not be better. You can walk to restaurants entertainment and shopping. The owners were accomodating in every way and supply all the amenities. Since this is a newly built home it is pristine inside and out. The value cannot be beat and Isla Mujeres has to be one of the friendliest places we have ever been. I have recommended this lovely home to many family members and they have all been equally impressed. We are going back next year.
