After many years staying in one place near Punta Sur on Isla Mujeres, Mexico, the new owners decided to live full time in the house we'd been renting and so we had to look for a new place this year. We found it in Casa Lirio. It's a lovely two story home with two beds and a bath with a rooftop patio, two balconies (one's more like a deck) and a lower patio off the living room with a garden of tropical plants...and a few friendly neighborhood cats. Everything you'll need is there. A fully equipped kitchen, comfortable living room, lots of sleeping accommodations that will easily sleep six and a roomy rooftop patio. Air conditioning is available and we used it a couple of times on still nights, buy mostly the cool sea breeze flows through the house nicely. It's on a very private road in the middle of the island toward the south. More of a lane than a road really. There certainly isn't any tourist traffic there. The house is an easy walk to either side of Isla with the bay side being more calm and the Caribbean side with more wave action. Also an easy walk to several beach restaurants and bars like The Joint, Captain Dulche, Mar Bella, Playa Lancheros and others. We found Casa Lirio to be an absolutely delightful spot with all the comforts. We want to stay here again in future years. Highly recommended.
Casa Lirio offers a slice of life in a secluded Mexican neighborhood, off the beaten track but close enough that you can talk to first-class restaurants and great little beaches. Downtown is a quick taxi or cart ride away, and your trip home along the ocean road in the moon and starlight is wonderful. Morning coffee under the eastern palapa is great and any time on the breezy rooftop is a treat as well. The full kitchen and dining area make those occasions when you want to dine in easy and pleasurable. Enjoy!
This was such a cozy, airy, private home!
An easy walk to both sides of the ocean.
Rebecca is delightful to work with!
She and her staff, went out of their way to make this a very special honeymoon for our kids!
We had a wonderful week at Casa Lirio! Thank you, Rebecca for all of your awesome suggestions you gave us. Everything went smoothly - you connected us with a ride from the airport to the ferry, a taxi driver to pick us up at the ferry, and tons of other information along the way. Our lost luggage with United even made it the very next morning! We LOVED seeing the sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach at night. Truly remarkable. Casa de Los Suenos water park was a big hit for our kids (ages 6, 6, & 8) We also enjoyed the snorkeling at Garrafon de Castillas. Thomas the taxi driver you hooked us up with was so nice and Marcellino (property manager) was great too. Thank you for being so responsive with us as well as we were worried about Tropical Storm Franklin heading our way - so thankful it wasn't a big deal. We loved everything about the island and really feel like it helped our kids see the local people. We felt very safe and never were worried about getting sick, etc. We loved that the house was off the beaten path and tucked away in the trees down a dirt road. We did lots of exploring all week in the golf cart we rented and had a ball. Again, everything was great and we would love to come back sometime!
This house is amazing, just perfect for my family. My 6 year old son loved the loft bed, the fact it was in our room made me feel much more comfortable for our first nights rest. My mother in-law met us at the ferry terminal on day two to join us for our time there.
We all agreed, every day feels much longer in isla mujeres. We are going to return again.
We had so many beach days, adventures, and stories to come home with.
Im posting this via my phone, and all of my pictures are on my camera. However the pictures they have posted explain everything.
I recently stayed at Casa Lirio with my daughter and 2 1/2 year grandson for a week. It was a welcoming and homey environment away from the busyness of everything. When we needed a break we went back to it's quiet comfort.
The welcome book was thoughtfully put together with great information. We really appreciated it. We tried several of the recommended restaurants and we were not disappointed!
Rebecca was very responsive to any needs we had. Marcelino, the property manager, was also helpful and friendly.
If you want a quiet place to chill when you need a break, this place was great.
Having transportation was helpful since it is on the south part of the island. More than one cab driver had difficulty fiding the place. We would tell them near Hotel la Joya and direct them from there. We found it very advantageous to rent a golf cart to be able to come and go as we pleased with a child.
Thanks for sharing Casa Lirio with our family Rebecca. We really enjoyed our stay.
This townhome is tucked away in a quiet location away from the more touristy end of the island. A bit tricky to find at first. We rented a golf cart and could get to everything on the small island fairly quickly. I really appreciated that the owner was in constant contact with me when my suitcase was delayed by the airline. The home was equipped with everything we needed. My only disappointment was the lack of water pressure in the shower. Understandable given the island's water system. We really enjoyed our sunrise visit to nearby Punta Sur (only about 1/2 mile from the house).
