“Oh, that breeze........”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Our 3 week stay in Real at Casa Flamboyan was simply magical. It's so close to the sea you basically feel like you're on a boat and the incredible breeze coming off the Caribbean is definitely what I will miss the most (we didn't turn on the AC a single time, even on the hottest days). The sitting area on the opposite side of the water was great for playing cards and eating dinner since the house acts as a buffer from the wind. Adequately equipped kitchen and the space somehow maintained a strong sense of privacy even though there were folks staying next to and below us. Will definitely go back again!

This was our 6th time to the Island and has been about 7 years. Great to see it keeps it charm and would not hesitate to visit and will visit again.

Case Flamboyan Real is one of two units to rent. Wonderful hosts and cannot go wrong with renting and highly recommend. Having stayed on the Island multiple times this would be the location I would return to. The walk into town is just enough and easy to do with always something interesting going on. The restaurants in town we always enjoy and the people as well. Lupe is wonderful and cleans the unit very well and is always has that smile. The owners are always approachable but yet are not in any way to involved in your stay.

I highly recommend a boat ride with Storm, you will not be disappointed and as we always do a rental cart for around the Island at least once is a great day trip.

Gracias Harriet and Richard

Casa Flamboyan is simply a perfect place to stay in the perfect location, Isla Mujeres.

We stayed in Casa Azul for 7 nights and we could not find anything wrong, only more than we ever imagined. After a way too busy holiday season our time at Casa Flamboyan was flawless. Way too easy! We were able to completely disconnect and revitalize our lives.

Richard and Harriet were wonderful hosts, while not being intrusive. We could always ask them anything especially about where to dine, what to do, all the details. They did a great job of providing a lot of advance info and we would recommend the transfer they use. Lupe, our housekeeper, was amazing. Plan on a couple of hours for her cleaning service because she cleans it all at least twice a week! Not just the bathroom, everything, including the sheets and towels.

You are within easy walking distance of the entire north and central part of the island. About 1 mile to the tip of North Beach and a less than a mile to restaurants in town. Walking on this island was a real pleasure. We even walked to the big grocery store on the south end of the island one day. The island is very clean and really friendly people.

In summary under promised and over delivered! Don't even hesitate on this one, otherwise it will be gone. We are already booked for 2 weeks next year! Now shhhhhhh, and don't tell another soul...

Room Tip: Azul is perfect for 2 people. Not much counter space but the restaurants are great, close and cheap...

I just returned from a 2 week stay at Casa Flamboyant. I have been travelling to Isla for more then 20 years and have stayed in most areas. I was unable to locate something right in town, so Casa Flamboyant was my second choice. I would highly recommend this apt. It is very ideally located with your own private front row seat to the daily sunrise & sunset. The kitchen is very well equipped and in every room there is the wonderful ocean breeze. Forget the AC, you really don't need it here. The owners Richard & Harriet were very helpful and gave me endless information...I'm glad I was unable to stay downtown. Casa Flamboyant was better then any things there.

Casa Flamboyan was the absolutely perfect spot for a quiet getaway on Isla Mujeres. It's close enough to town for easy access for meals and the beach, but lovely to be away from the hustle and bustle. It's an easy walk if you go that route and even easier if you decide to rent a golf cart and want to explore the rest of the island. The space itself is spectacular, especially the porch overlooking the Caribbean and the ability to go to sleep every night listening to the waves crash against the shore. Communication was great from Harriet in advance, with plenty of information and everything was as expected. If you're looking for space to relax, a well stocked kitchen, and gracious hosts, it's hard to believe there's a better find and value on the island. It lives up to every promise that it makes - don't hesitate to give it a shot!

My wife Kari and I took our long delayed honeymoon October 3-12. Our stay at Casa Flamboyan was heaven sent from start to finish. Harriet attended to us via email ahead of our stay, Lupe took care of us while we were there, and the doctor that is in the house book took care of Kari when she needed a doctor while on the island. Airport transfer to the ferry at Puerto Juarez via Felipe Alvarez was seamless, quick, direct, and far cheaper than the corporate services. You'll get the contact info when you book.

Lupe made sure that we had food/beer stocked to start us off, showed us how everything worked, and gave us our privacy. We did not rent a scooter nor a golf cart as the walk in to town was so short. We shopped for groceries at several different places, mostly to maximize seeing different parts of the city. Our Spanish is basic, but with smiles we got along just fine.

We were the only people there (Harriet and Richard were traveling) so we had complete privacy for on all 3 levels of the house: infinity pool facing the Gulf of Mexico on the main level, both porches on the second level, and roof terrace. We found ourselves instantly attuned to island time and pace, waking just before sunrise and taking to our bed not long after sunset. Like flowers we moved with the sun from porch to pool to roof. The pictures don't do justice to the incredible play of light coming through the windows and skylights cleverly built in to the roof. Hammocks are everywhere you'd want, and the tile table on the roof would be perfect to host a fabulous dinner party.

We didn't eat out as much as others have written nor did we explore the island south of Casa Flamboyan. We had everything we needed and wanted in the house or in town. Next time we'll rent a scooter and explore the southern parts of the island. :-)

Just a couple of small things:
1. The air strip directly across from the Casa was used exactly twice during our stay. It was fun watching traffic come to a stop to watch this unusual event.
2. Don't be surprised if you startle lizards on your way down to the main level to walk to the pool. They'll scurry out of your way.
3. When you walk to town, the walk is much cooler if you don't walk along the naval base's walls. We loved walking on the seawall that faces east that is accessible just before the road branches.
4. On the western side near the ferries is a gas station. Walk through the gas station and enjoy drinks and a sunset on the restaurant that's built out on to the dock.

We'll be back, the only question is with or without our children. :-)

Room Tip: We had the opportunity to see the other suite and would have been quite happy in it. The shower is...

Everything about Casa Flamboyan was perfect! The ocean side pool, the ocean facing decks etc. When you open the doors there is a wonderful ocean breeze that keeps the house cool without requiring you to turn on the AC. Will absolutely come back here.
