Yes, this house is so good i almost want to keep it as a secret. The house looks much better in real life than the pictures. Spacey, good taste in details, and a short walk from the city centre , but placed near the sea you also get the tranquility for a perfect holiday.

The house is also neighbor to Lalomitas a fantastic restaurant.

“Best Vacation-Home EVER”
Reviewed 15 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Absolutely fell in love with Casa Chulita and Isla Mujeres! I can't wait to return next year. We stayed November 13-20, 2015.

This vacation rental exceeded my expectations. Everything from the location to the amenities were perfect for my first vacation on Isla Mujeres. The property owner and the property management staff were both very responsive and made sure that I was satisified with my vacation experience.

This is a 3 story house with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The first floor has a mini pool that is next to the malecon or sidewalk right along the waters edge. I'd estimate that the ocean is about 4 yards from the mini pools edge. One day the weather wasn't conducive to getting in the mini pool, but all other days I enjoyed spending some time cooling off and relaxing in this pool while watching the ocean's waves. So beautiful! There is a gas grill out by the mini pool, which I didn't use, but will next time.

The kitchen is also located on the first floor. This kitchen is really well appointed, so if you like to cook or want the convenience of cooking some meals rather than always eating out, you'll be very happy. Having a full size fridge was awesome!

Something that I didn't expect was that there was a huge automatic bottled water dispenser. I'm not sure what the size was: maybe a 5 gallons or so sized bottle. Plus there were a handful of similar sized bottles when you used one up. So, this was a big bonus, since I expected to have to go to the grocery store to buy many large bottles of water.

There is a bathroom on each of the 3 floors which is really handy. You don't need to run up or down a flight of stairs to reach a bathroom. Regardless of which floor you are on, one is nearby.

The second floor has the 2nd master bedroom and a 3rd bedroom. I considered the master bedroom on the 3rd floor to be the "best" one since it was on the top floor with an en suite bathroom, but I found myself enjoying relaxing with my morning coffee on the 2nd floor balcony many times during the week. There really isn't a bad place for viewing the ocean. :)

On the second floor there is a living area for watching TV, videos, or selecting a book to read. A bookshelf with a variety of interesting books and DVD's of TV series provides additional entertainment if you need it. There is a stereo system that has speakers running through the house, so it was lovely to have music running throughout when chilling out from the day's adventures.

The thrid floor has the master bedroom with a balcony that has an outdoor shower and double bath/hot tub. On the opposite side looking toward the street and towards Cancun is a palapa covered roof with table and chairs. Yet another fun view! Also, want to mention that the third floor bed was so comfortable. Best sleep ever! An to wake up and be able to see the ocean was wonderful.

Other conveniences:
1) The property managers setting up travel to and from the Cancun Airport with instructions on the ferry to Isla Mujeres. Everything was a piece of cake. No difficulties at all. Piece of advice if you haven't travelled to Mexico before or if you need a reminder: There are people insdie the airport that appear to try to help you as you are exiting from the baggage claim area to your waiting taxi or van. Don't stop! These are timeshare reps who are trying to get unweary travellers to sign up for timeshare presentations. Make sure you know ahead of time where you are to meet with your transportation from the airport. Again, DON'T STOP! Don't worry about being rude. Keep going until you get completely outside the airport building.
2) Renting a golf cart for all or part of your stay. The property manager will arrange this for you, too, if you wish. It is a bit on the expensive side, so plan ahead for how many days you think you'll really need this.
3) The location of Casa Chulita is conveniently close to downtown and the lovely North Beaches (Playa Norte). Walking distance unless you have difficulties or pain when walking. I enjoyed the walking path (malecon), but a golf cart will come in handy if you need an alternative.
4) Just a few doors down is a restaurant called La Lomita. Very convenient and very good black bean soup.
5) I didn't have a bad meal the whole week on Isla Mujeres. Standouts include: Fantastic breakfast at Polo's Mango Cafe and great whole fried fish special at Jax's sports bar.

I will definitely return next year and have been telling my friends to rent Casa Chulita if they get a chance. Although only 2 of us stayed this time, Casa Chulita has 3 bedrooms, so I'll return with more friends next time. Enjoy!

Note: There is a notebook that provides you with instructions for the house and recommendations for activities and restaurants. Also, there was some snorkeling equipment available for use in the entryway cabinet, so I won't bring my flippers next time.

We were so lucky to have found Casa Chulita for our first stay on Isla Mujeres! The house is impeccably maintained and perfect in every way! The top floor bedroom has a fabulous deck with a hot tub and beach chairs to get some sun - and wake up to the ocean every morning! The second floor has a wonderful large bedroom and a smaller bedroom that is perfect for a teenager or two. Every need we had was provided for us at this house by Dede - The house is perfectly situated in town on a quiet street and only a few doors down from one of the best restaurants! The dipping pool was our favorite place to hang out since it's right on the ocean. Thanks so much to Dede - we will definitely be booking again!!

This newly remodeled home is perfect unless you have small children. Three couples rented the home and we enjoyed everything about it. Watching the sun rise while laying in bed is such a treat! There are four patios, a dipping pool, outdoor shower, well stocked kitchen, and outdoor grill. It is located on the Malecon so people watching is great. A few doors down in La Lomita which is a great little cafe and there are plenty of other restaurants nearby. Hidalgo is a 5 minute walk and Playa Norte easy walking distance. The beds were very comfortable which isn't always the case in Mexico.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa Chulita! Isla Mujeres is a magical place and we strive to have our home be a "home away from home" for our guests. For families who have small children, we have childproofing materials. We don't set them up when there are only adults. We hope you will return to Casa Chulita!
