Casa Zuzy is a terrific place to stay if you are visiting Isla Mujeres. Located in the residential neighborhood of La Gloria the apartments are new, clean and within walking distance of many restaurants, stores and local businesses.
Both of the second floor units have large sliding glass doors that opens up to private decks. You can also take the stairs to the roof and see the entire neighborhood, the Caribbean and even the Cancun skyline in the distance. There are many beautiful plants on the roof and a hammock and pool to relax in.
The kitchenette in the apartment I stayed in included a full sized refrigerator, gas cooktop, microwave, a nice sized sink and spacious counter top to prepare meals. The bathroom includes a nice sized walk in shower and the bedroom is spacious and comfortable. Cable television and wireless internet are available.
The property owners, Will and Susan, are very accommodating and friendly. Their hospitality and knowledge of the island will ensure your stay is a memorable one. I would highly recommended this property to anyone visiting the island who would like to stay outside of the "touristy" areas and experience what real life on the island is like.
